2021 is a very successful year for One Piece with many memorable events and milestones taking place. It cannot be denied that the appeal, coverage and spirit of One Piece are increasingly being recognized by audiences around the world. Going beyond Japan, One Piece is gradually becoming a new cultural symbol of the country of the Rising Sun.
Recently, on the occasion of the New Year, a major Japanese newspaper borrowed the One Piece manga to convey a message to readers. Specifically, the images of the One Piece series have been posted with New Year greetings as follows:
“Between people and people
Reading manga, there will be times when you want to laugh.
Sometimes I want to cry.
Sometimes I want to wait.
Sometimes I will remember someone.
The image of an action protagonist filled with courage will invigorate your heart.
Gently push you forward.
Happy New Year, may your world be filled with happy laughter.”
It can be seen that this is a very meaningful congratulation, it conveys the spirit of the One Piece series that author Oda has created over the years. Dreams, teamwork, overcoming difficulties, always being together is what we see in this series. All the characters, One Piece has no villain, they all join hands and side by side to protect their dreams. There’s nothing better than a happy new year, right?
Personally, the author Oda, a famous mangaka who cares and actively interacts with readers, also spent a whole day creating a picture to celebrate the New Year of the Tiger 2022. Through this picture, the author. thank you for accompanying him all these years and giving One Piece fans a year as strong as a tiger.
