The November issue of Shueisha's Saikyo Jump magazine is announcing on Saturday that a new One Piece spinoff manga series will start in the magazine's January issue, which will ship on December 5. The manga will revolve around Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates, and Saikyo Jump will also feature articles.

Wow, color me surprised here but I didn't expect this. I started reading One Piece this year but to see this news surprised me. It will focuso n Luffy and the Straw Pirates but I wonder who else will join this series.

Anyways, it should be a fun adventure if done right.

Looking forward to it!

my guess since its a spin-off, it'll be focused on comedy instead of action, maybe something along the lines of "The adventures of Franky and his Nipple Lights" or maybe of the beauties of One Piece all taking a bath together while the guys try to devise a plan to peek, or the secret life of Smoker and how he misses having boobs.

Another Spinoff in Saikyo Jump? Cool I guess. I wonder if it's going to be done by the same person who did the Chopperman spinoff. Sadly there is little interest in these kind of spinoffs, so we'll probably not have any kind of English translations.

I have been hearing alot about Saikyo Jump having newer spin-offs of existing series. I remember the Rock Lee spinoff ending in favor of a Sasuke spin-off.

Simple, 'cause Shueisha wants more of that One Piece ¥¥¥.
If this turns out to be similar to the Straw Hat theater I'm all in. That was hilarious.

Is Oda going to draw it? I would assume not, since they already give him 1 week a month off to keep his health up.

I don't get it.


How can you spin off with the same characters?

Alright so first chapter has been released. It's fun, but nothing special. I mean the target audience is Elementary School kids so we can't really expect much. The art looks pretty good and close to Oda's style.

Anyways, if anyone is looking for a summery of the 1st chapter, the good people at the One Piece Podcast posted one here
