All One Piece Arcs In Order – Sagas, Specials, & Movies

Eiichiro Oda created the first ever One Piece volume back in July 1997. Back then, no one would have thought that One Piece would become the highest-selling manga of all time.

Today, 25 years on and over 500 million copies sold, One Piece tops manga and comic book sales by some distance. And it’s also one of the longest-running manga series with over 1000 Chapters across 102 Volumes.

But enough about the manga.

Two years after the first manga Volume, TOEI Animation decided to turn One Piece into an anime. In October 1999, Fuji TV aired the 1st episode of One Piece anime, and so began one of the longest-running anime series of all time.

One Piece has nearly 1000 episodes, 13 specials, and 13 movies. Moreover, the manga is in full flow as well.

As new manga volumes and anime content comes out regularly, there’s a lot of content to watch. New starters can have a hard time navigating through all this. And that’s where this One Piece arc list proves handy.

Where To Watch One Piece?

where to watch one piece

Before we begin the One Piece arc list, here’s another list of all the platforms where you can watch One Piece.

  • FunimationOur pick to watch One Piece. Funimation has all the episodes + the majority of specials and movies. You can watch the whole series in Japanese as well as English.
  • Netflix – Netflix is the second best platform to watch One Piece. It has all the episodes but for specific regions only. The US audience does have full access. Others might have to use VPN.
  • Crunchyroll – Crunchyroll is a good platform if you’re a purist. It has all the episodes but only in Japanese. English subs are available, though.
  • Hulu – Hulu does have the English dub version of One Piece but it’s still missing the latest episodes. A good platform to start, but you’ll have to switch eventually.

We don’t suggest it, but One Piece is available on Amazon Prime Video. You’ll have to pay $1.99 for every episode, and it’s not even in HD.

One Pieces Arcs & Sagas

Think of sagas as seasons. Each saga has multiple One Piece story arcs that follow the adventures of the Straw Hat Pirates. And every arc is spread across multiple episodes.

We’ve listed all One Piece sagas and arcs in order; so you don’t mess up your experience of watching one of the most popular animes of all time.

Moreover, we’ve also mentioned the corresponding manga chapters that every One Piece arc covers. So, you’ll know how much manga you’ve caught up with while watching anime.

You’ll also see Specials and Movies in this list. Their place on the list suggests the right time to watch them without spoiling the original series.

Sea of Survival: Super Rookies Saga – All One Piece Arcs in Order

sea of survival super rookies saga

If you don’t know already, One Piece features a two-year time skip. During this time skip, the gang decides to skip adventures and train hard to become stronger.

Now, this time skip is a significant event in One Piece anime.

Viewers have divided the series into two halves; before the time skip (Sea of Survival: Super Rookies Saga) and after the time skip (The Final Sea: The New World Saga). So, we’re going to stick with it too.

Here’s a list of all One Piece arcs in the Super Rookies Saga, which further has 6 sagas.

East Blue Saga

The first saga that began it all. We are introduced to Luffy as he starts recruiting his team of pirates to set sail in search of the One Piece. We meet Zoro, Sanji, Nami, and Usopp for the first time.

How Many Chapters Of One Piece Are There?

One Piece manga has 1053 chapters as of now. Eiichiro Oda will be returning to the drawing board after his month-long hiatus.

And on July 25 we’ll be treated to chapter 1054 which will begin the conclusion of this extraordinary shonen manga and anime series.

Chapter 1054 will officially begin the post-Wano Country arc- and by the looks of it, this seems to be the last saga and the final One Piece arcs.

how many chapters of one piece are there

After nearly 25 years, the manga will conclude with Laugh Tale Island, and we are sure the anime series will follow soon. But, it’s clear that we’ll still get plenty of anime for at least a year. Because the studios need time to catch up to the weekly manga publishings.

Until then, watch all the One Piece arcs in order and prepare for a new One Piece Movie as well.
