Published

on

Updates have been made to the Guinness World Records entry for Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece. Compared to when it first set a world record in December 2014, the long-running manga series had sold even more copies.

News by the Numbers

On the official One Piece staff account on Twitter, Weekly Shonen Jump editor-in-chief Hiroyuki Nakano exhibited the brand-new Guinness certificate. It demonstrates that between December 1997 and July 2022, 416,566,000 copies of One Piece novels were distributed.

Coming Back Stronger

Eiichiro Oda took a one-month break from adding new chapters in June 2022. He needed time to rest and get ready for the series’ concluding arc. The series, which resumed publication in the Shonen Jump issue of July 25, 2022, continued to enjoy widespread popularity despite the break.

Along with the original manga, One Piece anime and video game adaptations are also popular. On August 6, 2022, the One Piece Film: Red movie will be released in Japan; the West will get it in the following fall. One Piece Odyssey, an RPG being developed by Bandai Namco, will launch in 2022 for the PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, and PC.

In a recent interview, Ariana Grande’s Sam & Cat co-star Jennette McCurdy admitted that she occasionally felt “jealous” of how the singer was treated.

The Opportunities

In her memoir, McCurdy, 30, discusses her time at Nickelodeon. She asserts that although she had to decline other jobs while working on iCarly, Grande was given permission to miss the production of Sam & Cat in order to participate in other shoots and events.

Leading Up to It

McCurdy said she quickly became ‘jealous’ and ‘pissed’ with Grande as a result of the singer being able to forego shooting in order to attend other events.

The last straw, according to McCurdy, came when her former co-star confessed she had spent the previous evening playing charades at Tom Hanks’ house when she arrived at work. It was difficult not to compare her professional path to Grande’s.
