In commemoration of the 15th anniversary of the TV anime series next year, Shueisha and Toei Animation jointly launched "ONE-PIECE.com," an official portal site for Eiichiro Oda's super popular manga series One Piece on November 1. The manga has been serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump since 1997 and the TV anime produced by Toei Animation started broadcasting on Fuji TV on October 20, 1999.
The site provides information on all kind of One Piece-related genre including manga, anime, games, character goods, and events.
