One Piece Manga Increasing Speed to Gear 2nd.
Even though the "Big three" have been licensed with Viz media for a long while now, it seems like out of them One Piece was hardly given any love.
Observe the following:
Naruto's latest release by viz was volume 44 (Current is 47 in Japan) - Difference of 3 volumes.
Bleach's latest release by viz was volume 28 (Current is 40 in Japan) - Difference of 12 volumes.
One piece's latest release by viz was volume 21 (Current is 55 in Japan) - Difference of 34 volumes!!!!
Well apparently there have been some complaints about this and Viz is ready to listen!
Starting January Viz announced it'll be releasing 5 volumes of One piece PER MONTH! Yes, you heard me right :o that's F.I.V.E volumes of Non stop One piece action per month~ (That also means 40.00 a month of your allowance, but heck^^ it's One Piece! Your parents/land lord/girlfriend are sure to understand :) )
Just so you have an idea of when to expect what volume check out the following release schedule:
January 2010 Volumes 24-28
February 2010 Volumes 29-33
March 2010 Volumes 34-38
April 2010 Volumes 39-43
May 2010 Volumes 44-48
June 2010 Volumes 49-53
So by Next year English speakers around the world can all enjoy One piece in all its glory in volume form :).
Keep up the great work Viz! (Just don't burn out, ne?)
