Manga Throughout “Jump” Put On Their Straw Hats To Celebrate “One Piece” Anniversary

After its “Romance Dawn” prelude debuted in August 1996’s Akamaru Jump, Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece began its Shonen Jump run on July 19th, 1997. Which means the pirate adventure has a 20th anniversary coming up next week. The week’s issue 33 celebrates with a cover and color spread for the series, a message from Oda, and the other Jump series giving subtle tips of the (straw) hat to the magazine’s longest currently-running series.
