About One Piece
One Piece (Japanese: ワンピース, Hepburn: Wan Pīsu) is a Japanese shōnen manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine since July 22, 1997, and has been collected into 96 tankōbon volumes as of April 2020. The story follows the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy, a boy whose body gained the properties of rubber after unintentionally eating a Devil Fruit. With his crew of pirates, named the Straw Hat Pirates, Luffy explores the Grand Line in search of the world’s ultimate treasure known as “One Piece” in order to become the next King of the Pirates.
The manga spawned a media franchise, having been adapted into a festival film produced by Production I.G, and an anime series produced by Toei Animation, which began broadcasting in Japan in 1999. Additionally, Toei has developed fourteen animated feature films, one original video animation and thirteen television specials. Several companies have developed various types of merchandising and media, such as a trading card game and numerous video games. The manga series was licensed for an English language release in North America and the United Kingdom by Viz Media and in Australia by Madman Entertainment. The anime series was licensed by 4Kids Entertainment for an English-language release in North America in 2004, before the license was dropped and subsequently acquired by Funimation in 2007.
One Piece has received praise for its storytelling, art, characterization, and humor. Several volumes of the manga have broken publishing records, including the highest initial print run of any book in Japan. The official website for Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece manga announced that the manga has set the Guinness World Record for “the most copies published for the same comic book series by a single author”. As of April 2020, the manga had over 470 million copies in circulation in 43 countries worldwide, making it the best-selling manga series in history. It became the best-selling manga for the eleventh consecutive year in 2018. One Piece is one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time, estimated to have generated more than $21 billion in total franchise revenue, from the manga, anime, films, games and merchandise. 
About One Piece Movies
The One Piece Movies are theatrical films produced and released by Toei Animation. While generally made with the same cast and crew as the TV anime, they tend to boast much higher production values and animation quality.
Initially, these movies were released annually as part of Toei’s springtime ‘Anime Fair’ events, always as a double feature with various Digimon films. After the third movie (released in 2002), Toei discontinued the fair, and all subsequent movies were produced as standalone features (with the exception of the eleventh movie, released as a double feature with Toriko 3D Movie: Kaimaku! Gourmet Adventure!! for Toei’s 2011 ‘Jump Heroes’ event).
Most of the movies have completely original stand-alone plots set broadly around the contemporary story arc, but movies 8 and 9 directly adapt storylines from the manga. For the first nine movies, Eiichiro Oda was not involved in the films any more than other anime projects; This changed with the production of movie 10, for which Oda wrote the story and served as Executive Producer. Oda would also be heavily involved in movies 12 and 13, all three of which carried the subtitle ‘One Piece Film’.
Three of these movies had shorts accompanying them: The Adventure on Clockwork Island with Jango’s Dance Carnival, Chopper’s Island of Strange Animals with Dream Soccer King, and The Curse of the Sacred Sword with Take Aim! The Pirate Baseball King.
Several movie-length TV Specials have also been produced by Toei.
