Author’s Notes are short introductions that mangakas add to the dustjacket of each volume of their manga. And So Oda also writes these notes, They usually have nothing to do with the series itself except for on a few occasions and are written as if Oda were writing his everyday thoughts into a diary.

Volume Cover Sample
Volume 1 Cover
Volume 1 
Volume_001_Intro_Image
In order to write a “Story of Pirates”, I’ve been gathering lots of sources on pirates and reading them, but none state of a pirate who dreamed of becoming one in their young days. Seems like they were having so much fun that they forgot to mention themselves in history. Gosh, this is why pirates are such a pain.
Volume 2
Volume_002_Intro_Image
CUSTOMERS
“HEY YOU,
THE NICE FELLOW HUSBAND THERE.
A CUSTOMER HS COME BY.
WHERE SHALL WE MAKE THEM SIT?
IF THEY SIT NEAR THE EXIT,
THEY WON’T BE ABLE TO RELAX THERE WAIST.”
Volume 3
Volume_003_Intro_Image
There is something I would like to do if I can get a year vacation,like learning several types of ways to draw and master different style of arts.
Then drawing would be so much more fun.I wonder who came up with the concept of Earth being a small place?
Volume 4
Volume_004_Intro_Image
I have a dream. Oh,I want to scribble a dog. “Can I draw nose hair on it?”
“Can I draw it like a Panda?”
I’ve tried to scribble my friend’s dog but he won’t let me.
He told me to get my own dog to scribble,but I don’t want the weird kind of dog like he has.
Volume 5
Volume_006_Intro_Image
Did you guys know that if you eat squid ink spaghetti, your poop comes out black as well? Completely Black. Then perhaps if I eat rainbow coloured spaghetti,I may be able to have rainbow colourd poop? Just maybe…
But maybe it doesn’t even matter…
Volume 6
Volume_005_Intro_Image
Reader- On Volume 4, you said you would like to draw on dog so if it’s alright with you, you can draw on my dog (In the picture).His name is Chramie (Nick name is Tome)
-From Shizuoka District, Saruzuki *heart* San (Saruzuki= Monkey Lover)
Oda- Thank you very much. I’ve tried to make him look very manly. In this world there are many animals that protect themselves by camouflaging. For example, I think a Dog should camaouflage like this where there’s field od sun flowers. But nevertheless, Animals are amazing living beings. Are you mad, Saruzuki San?
Volume 7
Volume_007_Intro_Image
Is it really true that you can’t see the side of your own face with only one mirror? I mean if you just look to the side then…
In an instant..Turn! I’m sure if I can turn quickly enough…Turn!
I can see…Turn! An Afterimage…Turn!
Turn! Crack!………!
Volume 8
Volume_008_Intro_Image
There’s this short little story I want to tell you. It seems that long, long ago, Rabbits used to fly. That’s why we count them, we use the same counter “WA” as we do for birds. Rabbits that soared freely through the clear blue skies with their great big ears…
WHAT AN OCCULT STORY.
Volume 9
Volume_009_Intro_Image
Currently, It is july of 1999. As predicted by Nostradamus, It is the month when the world will be destroyed by the king of Angolmore. And as such, The World Government has called for Angolmore’s arrest.(His appearance is pictured as above.) His punishment shall be detainment untill august. If any of you spot him, Please do not try to attack him by rolling sobats or piledrivers.
-World Government-
Volume 10
Volume_010_Intro_Image
The 10th volume, 2 years since serialization. 2 years huh…
2 years would be enough for the 24 year old Sazae-San to turn…24. Ah, Now that I think about it, I’m the same age as Sazae-San Now. And I used to be the same age as Katsuo-Kun before. Who’s next? Norisuke-San? Taiko-San? Tara-San? Tara-San,something about him just makes me laugh. Or Ikura-San. The heck am I talking about? In any case, I’m still the same old me who never works and does nothing but draw manga.
Volume 11
Volume_011_Intro_Image
Ah- thank you very… much for ah- riding this ah- sightseeing bus. Eh- this bus… is uh- currently on its way… to… ONE PIECE’s 100th ah- chapter. Ah, right around the right hand side to you… where… you can… see something tall… sticking… up… ah~ that would be~ the middle… finger…, yes. Eh… now then we will… get into an… exciting… and lively mood in… this… sightseeing… bus.
Volume 12
Volume_012_Intro_Image
Let’s think about evolution today, shall we? Or not. Or let’s. Humans have evolved from apes, just like in the picture above. In case you couldn’t tell, our backs are arched by just a little. Now then, The question is what form will humans of the future take. I for one, believe that we are heading towards a backflip. Thus, The humans of the future should be floating up in the air.
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN.
Volume 13
Volume_013_Intro_Image
A Dragon lives at Enoshima. The mythical beast closest to being a God. That is a Dragon.
I WONDER HOW A DRAGON WOULD TASTE LIKE?
Volume 14
Volume_014_Intro_Image
This is out of the blue, but I have seen a ninja before. I’m dead serious. I think it was when I was in 3rd grade or so. This is a story of when I was living in Miyazaki because of my parents’ job transfer. A ninja came to the elementary school I went to. Class was suddenly over and an school-wide assembly was held. Getting a request from the principle, the ninja says this.?Today, I have come to show you all ninjutsu.?The ninja screamed?KAAAAAAHHH!!?and chopped a big rock. Our jaws dropped. Then the ninja picked out a few students in the higher grades, made them come up on stage, and said this.?You can go back.?The thing we puzzled kids saw next with our eyes was……!! TO BE CONTINUED.
Volume 15
Volume_015_Intro_Image
CONTINUE FROM LAST VOLUME:
“KAAAAH,” Cried the Ninja and suddenly! The older kids were completely frozen in their tracks! That was the famous “Paralysis-Induction Arts” after that, he even stopped a person’s heart and showed us pictures of his training days. The thrills didn’t stop coming. The Ninja then went on to say,”You know, I can stand upside-down from this gymnasium ceiling but I won’t because I don’t have any more time to spare.
So you see, I indeed saw a Ninja. I am completely serious.
Volume 16
Volume_016_Intro_Image
[Teacher!!! Afroda-kun’s lunch money disappeared!!!]

[Say what!!? Seriously!!! Afroda!!! No lunch for you today!!]

Volume 17
Volume_017_Intro_Image
Japanese restaurants that I usually go to with the staff have lots of families with kids as customers, and it’s always lively. For each seat, a television set is attached. When we go there on a Wednesday at 7 o’clock, the kids have their mouths wide open like retards and stare at the television set, stuck like glue. The channel is set on [ONE PIECE]. I think I should do my best.
Volume 18
Volume_018_Intro_Image
I hear you need stamina to sleep. If you sleep the correct way, even if it’s for a short while, it seems like you can wake up nice and fresh. In other words, you should sleep with all your might. That’s the idea. So, in order to sleep to the fullest in a short period, I decided to gain some stamina before sleep. I gulp down some strong energy drinks and snuggle into my blanket. Ugh, geez, I’m tellin ya, HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO FUCKING SLEEP LIKE THIS.
Volume 19
Volume_019_Intro_Image
In English, it’s (Brown). Brown is the color of land. If there was brown toilet paper, I think it would be a problem. ….Ya know–. You wouldn’t be able to see it, right? ….Ya know–. ….Yeah this discussion is disgusting, isn’t it. I really shouldn’t be talking about this, should I. Now then! Volume 19 of ONE PIECE is going to start!!
Volume 20
Volume_020_Intro_Image
Phrases with rhythm feel good to hear, don’t they. Like [Kappa on the river flow]. Or[It’s spring after all]. Or maybe [It is well into autum]. Or [Falling dead on the street], or [stiff circular kicks], or [taste of rich soy sauce].  Now then, volume 20 starts.
Volume 21
Volume_021_Intro_Image
I saw a unique panda on TV. You know how pandas have black sections? That part was all white. Heh, there are amazing things in this world. On top of that, it lives in places like the North Pole. I don’t know what to do with you, Panda. (Lol) Now then, volume 21 start.
Volume 22
Volume_022_Intro_Image
Did you know?

According to statistics, the “reading comprehension” rate of Japanese youngsters is crazy good on a worldwide level. Isn’t this amazing? Hey. Isn’t this amazing? Do you know why? Even out of the Japanese, people with the highest reading comprehension scores of all are the people who also read tons manga. Isn’t it amazing? This fact. EESN’T DZEES AAMMAAZZ -ING?

Volume 23
Volume_023_Intro_Image
These days, whatever book I read says that the mermaids that the sailors saw back then were probably actually all [dugongs]. The scientist who said that. You, sit right there. For example, a sailor back then. Let’s say his name is “Nishimura-san”. He says this.[Me saw e mermaid]. Now that’s the pure reason why mermaid legends were created. But you just said it straight out.[Maybe it was a Dugong]. Yes, and with this the whole world took it seriously. Well well, Nishimura-san is now very disappointed. Crying to bed in the otherworld. [BUT I SAW ZE MERMAID.] Cheer up. Nishimura-san. DUGONGS ARE PRETTY CUTE TOO, YOU KNOW?
Volume 24
Volume_024_Intro_Image
Come to think of it, when I went to visit my family recently, my parents stated their thoughts on ONE PIECE for the first time. [That story about the deer was real nice]……..DEER?
Volume 25
Volume_025_Intro_Image
There is a reason why Chapter 233 in this volume’s cover is black. By doing this, I have memorialized my mangaka buddy named Shingagin who recently passed away. According to a certain person, even if a Mangaka dies, the characters that the Mangaka created live on in place of them. I really think we have a great career.
Volume 26
Volume_026_Intro_Image
RING RING RING
I stop the alarm clock. It is 3 P.M.
I open the curtains, pour coffee, and turn to my desk.
I put my coffee at its usual place, and open my notebook.
I sharpen the pencil, lean on my back rest slowly,
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
SECOND TIME SLEEPING IS THE BEST.
YAAAAYYY
(WORK DAMN IT)
Volume 27
Volume_027_Intro_Image
I just happened to think this yesterday, but ONE PIECE  sure is a REAL WEIRD TITLE. (ROFL)
Volume 28
Volume_028_Intro_Image
If I were to use a game as an analogy to making storylines in manga, it would be Tetris. I take a bunch of separate images and make them into one Book. But when that doesn’t work out too well, I start playing Tetris. I look at the little blocks falling into place, and I think “Whew, Tetris sure is Fun.”
Volume 29
Volume_029_Intro_Image
I hear that you need to eat hot food when it’s still hot, or else it’ll taste nasty. The thing is, I feel like the vast majority of us out there have tongues sensitive to heat. Since we call them “cat-tongued” in Japanese, I think there should also be a name for people with non-sensitive tongues.
“Perverted Tongues”.
I was jealous, so I gave them an embarrassing name.
Volume 30
Volume_030_Intro_Image
I got a letter like this. [ Oda-sensei, you are always irresponsible and weird.] I will make this clear here, right now; even though it’s me that always makes the dumb comments, some time ago our neighbors were praising this one kid about how “if you made him do academics, he was clearly a prodigy and if you made him do sports he would show how athletic he was”. And do you know who that kid was?? My friend Tanaka-kun. Now then, Volume 30 is starting.
Volume 31
Volume_031_Intro_Image
Everyone!! News!! If you’re having an unhealthy food routine and end up in a situation where you are having way too much sugar daily, having lots of salty foods as well to have a healthy balance IS SOMETHING YOU SHOULDN’T THINK OF!!! (EXTORTION!!!)
Volume 32
Volume_032_Intro_Image
I hear that in this world
everything turns out the way you think.
Because for instance, in a case where a person thinks
that in this world nothing turns out the way he thinks,
what he thinks turns out to be real for him,
therefore, everything turns out the way you think.
Volume 33
Volume_033_Intro_Image
Boogers are nasty, so I’ve decided to refer to them as “Honey” from now on.

I decided to ask one of the staff. “In schools, the chairs tend to have honey on the bottom of them, don’t they.” “Ehhhhh!?”, he said. “Ehhhhh!?”, I said back. “So what do you do with the honey you’ve harvested during class?!” “Oh, you flick it at people!!” “You abnormal person!!!”

Volume 34
Volume_034_Intro_Image
I will sing the mystery song I used to sing with my buddies in middle school.
[A pig– walks out in the street–
(bum bum bum~ x2)a car is coming from the side–
(bum bum bum~ x2)The pig– doesn’t wanna die–
so he dodges and walks on–
(bum bum bum~ x2)]Now, Volume 34 will begin.
Volume 35
Volume_035_Intro_Image
There is something called the “Nanba walk”. Like when they say the Japanese people before the Meiji era walked by setting out their left leg and left arm together, and then right leg and right arm together. If this is true, I think the people of ancient Japan were always very nervous. The reason for the tenseness is of course, because of the piano concert that is coming up tomorrow, and for that concert, your secretly beloved Mariko is going to come watch. Takashi has very short fingers, and he is not able to reach the black keys of the piano, so in order to dismiss that weakpoint, he locks himself in the mountains once again, and fights the big bad bear!!! Now!! Volume 35, start!!!
Volume 36
Volume_036_Intro_Image
I became 30 last year. I even married last year. There are days where I become a bit worried if there are any ways for me to live more properly then, as always, doing nothing but drawing cartoons, but I am healthy and well. Volume 36 will begin.
Volume 37
Volume_037_Intro_Image
Humans seem to be strong but are actually weak creatures. There is this fact that if there are only 5 cms of water in a puddle, it is possible for a human to drown in it. In other words, only being able to breath from nose and mouth is not too good. And so let us learn the third way of breathing, everybody. The third way, ASS BREATHING. And so, volume 37 begi*fart*
Volume 38
Volume_038_Intro_Image
When you buy stuff like singles CDs, around the 3rd song or so there’s a singing-less song you can find that’s written “Instoormentar”. Mothers who forget to buy the ingredients of the miso soup they were going too make for the dinner of their families could say this. “Today’s miso soup is Instoormentar”. During a test, if you can’t think of an answer then everyone should write next to the blank space. “It’s Instoormentar”. I frequently get pointed out by my readers that I forgot to draw something, but that is obviously also “Instoomentar”.
Volume 39
Volume_039_Intro_Image
BIRDS ARE LUCKY HUH? BECAUSE THEY CAN FLY AROUND THE SKY FREELY.According to a certain scientist’s calculations, apparently if you train to get your chest to have 2 meters worth muscle, then humans can also fly. Scientists sometimes say the craziest things, don’t they. Vamanos! Volume 39 will start!!
Volume 40
Volume_040_Intro_Image
Goats became famous for eating paper.

They deliciously eat anything that’s paper, as if to say “Oh, this is totally edible”. They eventually had to put up signs at the zoo. “Please do not feed the goats paper.” In reality, eating paper that has synthetic fibers in it will actually get you sick. Goat… you… you… What are you, a rising comedian artiste?

Volume 41
Volume_041_Intro_Image
These days even toothbrushes have evolved, and they even say there are these things called vibration brushes that vibrate 30 thousand times in just one minute, so when I carefully checked, it really was vibrating 30 thousand times. Now then, volume 41 is gonna begin–!!
Volume 42
Volume_042_Intro_Image
I think the split between old languages and modern languages arose because we don’t pass down our language very well. I’ve heard that even people in the Heian period (794-1185) would write in their diaries, “Young people these days don’t speak properly.”
I think it’s pretty funny that complaints have remained the same, so when I get old, I’ll say the same too.
Volume 42 begin!
Volume 43
Volume_043_Intro_Image
Timing is important.

George really needs to fart. Right now he is in a classroom and it’s very quiet. So he thinks. If he shouts out extremely loud and farts while doing so, it can be covered. Three, two, one, “AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!” “What?” *whisper whisper!!* *silence…..* *FART!!!*

Now then!! Volume 43 is about to begin!!

Volume 44
Volume_044_Intro_Image
Everyday,the world’s population grows by 200,000. There are over 5 billion people in the world. Every now and then, I think about how mysterious it is that even though the people of the world eat meat everyday, there are still plenty of animals around. So to all our animal friends, I say, “Thank You for the food.”
Volume 44, Start!!!
Volume 45
Volume_045_Intro_Image
The days of war with 10 year old young men. Kids that were 10 when the series started are now 20. The hair in that place must be already going wild by now. Just saying, but by that place, I meant armpits. Armpit hair. It’s become real long by now (not the armpit hair; I’m talking about the series) but I still have many scenes I want to draw. Hairless boys and Hairy boys, please bear with me for a bit more.
Volume 46
Volume_046_Intro_Image
I present to you a mystery song I used to sing with a friend. I dedicate this song to my crying friend.
It goes:
Don~n’t cry,
Do~n’t cry,
Let’s bake sweet potatoes,
Ah, never mind
I just Farted…
Volume 47
Volume_047_Intro_Image
The word “UFO” means “Unidentified Flying Objects”. Since they aren’t explainable they are called UFO. That’s the term used for them. UFO Investigators that look at pictures taken of these mysterious objects in the sky call them that.
“This is without doubt an UFO!!” In other words something I can’t distinguish that looks like a plane!!” Is what they mean.Hmm??
Volume 47 Begins~~!!
Volume 48
Volume_048_Intro_Image
Who exactly are you calling Hijackers? A Mangaka who doesn’t trust his readers will face divine retribution.
Switch On. *Kachi*
Kokoro, 10 seconds until bra removal.
9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,
*PORO*… Please Enjoy The Volume.
By Kaimori-Kun
AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!
Volume 48, Start!!!
Volume 49
Volume_049_Intro_Image
I go outside hanging a bag from my shoulder sometimes and bring my new song album with me instead by mistake. Yup yup. Common mistake. Volume 49 will start!!
Volume 50
Volume_050_Intro_Image
“Huh……?
you……
could it be that……
you are God?””…YES.”
Okay volume 50 starting—!!
Volume 51
Volume_051_Intro_Image
I heard a story where, in order to be able to paddle as much water as possible, a swimmer’s hands become webbed. That’s evolution, man. Mangakas are also always drawing so I want to evolute in one way or the other. For example… like the tip of my nails becoming shaped like a pen. Or being able to see through passerby women’s clothing. Volume 51 is starting-!!
Volume 52
Volume_052_Intro_Image
Vending machines during the winter have these labels that say “wa~rm” on them, so when I go with that flow and say “shoot, deadline’s coming clo~se”, it feels
Relaxing.In the first chapter, if Luffy had said “I’ll become the Pirate Ki~ng!” instead, something would feel slightly off. Just a little. Volume 52!! “I want to sta~rt it”.
Volume 53
Volume_053_Intro_Image
That “pose” that a person makes when saying?Excuse me I need to pass through?or on a full train or bus?Excuse me I need to get off?!! Let’s name it the “GOD FIST”. We can assume that is an old type of martial arts that was passed down from ancient China. The people that are under the “God Fist”‘s attack are hypnotized by the “will” that seeps from that hand and crowds end up creating a shining path as if Moses cracked a roaring sea in half…. Volume 53 is starting-!!
Volume 54
Volume_054_Intro_Image
I hear that humans are supposed to be able to live until the age of 140.

Then from there on, it’s said that their lives get shorter as they put more stress onto their bodies. Mangakas always have way too much pressure in their lives, so I’ll probably only get to live up to about the age of 135 (bummed).

Life is so short. Volume 54!! Starting now—-!!

Volume 55
Volume_055_Intro_Image
I heard that when you don’t have enough oxygen in your body, your body says “gimme oxygen” and makes you yawn. When you yawn and the person next to you yawns as well, I personally think it’s because the earth’s oxygen suddenly decreases when you yawn. You know, the Law of Conservation of Mass and all. Thinking back, I yawned that day. …yes, that day of the dream of all humanity, the space shuttle went to space. Half of that was a lie. Volume 55 is starting-!!
Volume 56
Volume_056_Intro_Image
There’s these seedless type of grapes that you can eat including the skin. Nothing can be better. I love those things. Seedless watermelon and seedless Japanese Persimmon make me feel like I’m in heaven too. Going with this flow, if things like shell-less crab and shell-less shrimp came out, I would totally gobble them up whole. Boneless fish is also great. From time to time the bones stab my throat so boneless eel makes me happy too. Still, I wouldn’t want this. MANGALESS LIFE. Now then Volume 56!! It’s starting—!!!
Volume 57
Volume_057_Intro_Image
I’m the type of guy who doesn’t feel right if I’m not reading something; in other words I have an addiction to books. I lied. JUST WANTED TO TRY SAYING IT. Volume 57 is starting—!!
Volume 58
Volume_058_Intro_Image
I’m not about people just deciding things for you without any consent.

Since the very day you were born, you’re just automatically categorized as the “Year of the Rabbit?!! “Capricorn the Goat”?!! You’ve gotta be kidding me!!! I don’t wanna be some damn weakling animal like that!!

With that being said, let’s change this up.

“YEAR OF THE HUMAN-EATING RABBIT” “THE DEMONIC GOAT CAPRICORN, WHO SWALLOWS ANACONDAS WHOLE”

Scary. Sounds strong. Volume 58 starting now—!!

Volume 59
Volume_059_Intro_Image
You ask why I’m drinking alone?

You know how there’s this one song that someone was singing about how if everyone “imagined” of a peaceful world, then the world would gradually become peaceful, right… You wanna drink with me too? After all, today is the day John died.

Ah, John the Dog. THE DOG.

Volume 59 is about to begin—!!!

Volume 60
Volume_060_Intro_Image
“The Standing Death of Benkei”.

I believe this death wins first place when it comes to manliest ways of dying that have been told down the Japanese generations.

In the previous volume, the death of the great “Whitebeard” was the epitomy of this saying. Speaking of Benkei, I have this one trait that really mirrors him. Yeah. You see, I heard that, coincidentally, Benkei had this same little quirk, but the truth is that

I also feel like crying when I accidentally bang my shin.

Guess it can’t be helped… that men among men end up resembling each other.

Alright, Volume 60 starting–!!

Volume 61
Volume_061_Intro_Image
I despise people who try to be cute. For example, people who try to use cute words are secretly manipulating us into letting our guards down, so be very careful.

“One and only ? Wun and onwy?” “Monument ? Monyu?ment” “No breaks the entire year ? No breakies the entire yearrrrr?” “Mugi yu ? Mugyuuuuuuuuuu~~?”

How about we all keep the cuteness appeal to a bare minimum!!!

A respectable chivalry manga, “ONE PIECE”!! The sixty-first volume!! It’s about to start, so my greetings go to you!!!

Volume 62
Volume_062_Intro_Image
Apparently, if you trace the roots of peoples’ DNA, our blood all leads to a single woman from a looooong time ago in Africa.

Despite this, theoretically speaking, she was not the earliest human around— but such a person must exist.

The beginning of humanity. The mother of humanity!
It sounds intense, so I tried drawing a picture in her image.
All of humanity is one big family.
No matter who’s in trouble, they’re not a complete stranger.

Volume 62 is startiiiing~~!

Volume 63
Volume_063_Intro_Image
Back when I was a kid, I raised this Japanese rhinoceros beetle larva, but I fiddled with its horn too much while it was growing and it ended up hardening at a weird, twisted angle.

They say to strike while the iron is hot, but that was a bad thing I did there. Yet, I can’t help but imagine- that if I had accidentally attached a bazooka to its shoulders while it was a pupa, it might have grown into a bazooka helmet beetle. If I had equipped it with armor and a katana, it might’ve grown into a fully armed helmet beetle. Except that’s sort of unethical- and after all, it’s best to stay the way we’re born!! Volume 63 is starting–!!

Volume 64
Volume_064_Intro_Image
Snacks from those traditional candy shops have wrappers or bags with these characters, who announce their opinion on how the snack tastes, printed on them.

I kind of like that, and think it’d be fun if they did this for various types of products. For example, on a bag of kimchi, it’d say, “Spicy!!” For pervy DVDs, it’d say “Naughty!!” For cigarettes, “Smoky!!” For drugs, “Risky!!” Volume 64 starting!! Tasty!!

Volume 65
Volume_065_Intro_Image
It goes in the bunker because you think you don’t want it to.

In fact, if you aim for the bunker, you’ll have a better chance of missing it. My favorite type of iron is… a 5-iron. I feel like these days, my putting skills are going down the drain—… Though I’VE NEVER EVEN PLAYED GOLF BEFORE~~!!! I wanna try it out when I’m all grown up– Volume 65 is starting~~!! Good up!!

Volume 66
Volume-066-Intro-Image
Ordering a “Chef’s Capricious Pasta” is a gamble.

I’d be crying myself to bed if the chef were “feeling like not making anything today” or “feeling like he wanted to eat his own cooking today”. I’d at least want to know how the chef has been doing recently. “The chef’s daughter got a 100 on her test. Chef’s Capricious Pasta!!” Sounds delicious–!! “The chef’s wife has been cheating on him… Chef’s… Capricious Pasta…” …….uhhhh–…… Now then! The capricious captain’s big adventure!! Volume 66 is starting–!!

Volume 67
Volume-067-Intro-Image
A “snooze”. What the hell is “snooze”? Before I knew it, this weird little word had somehow permeated our society.

“Snooze”.

The image that comes to mind when I hear the word devoid of context is something like this.(?) Now then, Volume 67 is starting!! Don’t snooze on it!!

Volume 68
Volume-068-Intro-Image
Does the thought of

“I DON’T EVER WANNA GROW UP!!” ever cross your mind?

When surrounded by adults who can hardly be considered role models, kids will lose their appetite and refuse to grow. If we were to take full advantage of this phenomena, it would become a revolutionary anti-aging treatment. Maybe the more shitty adults there are out there, people who don’t want to end up like them will be able to stay young forever. But these days, there are awesome adults regardless of wether they’re over 40 or over 70 which is just TOO BAD.

Strive for volume 70!! Volume 68’s about to start–!!!

Volume 69
Volume-069-Intro-ImageVolume-069-Intro-Image-2
(←)Oh, shit!!

When your toilet paper accidentally rips vertically in half, it begins.

THE GAME OF DEATH, that is.

The left side is already two~three laps ahead of the right side and still going.

A man must must never look back to his mistakes!!

It is too late to turn back now!!

Volume 69 starting—!!!

Volume 70Volume-070-Intro-Image Cows look fabulous with their horns.

I wish I could just grow horns one day. Since the dawn of time, men have always wanted horns. It’s normal to have horns. They look so manly after all. I guess they’d be slightly inconvenient when going to bed? And it’d probably be difficult to do headers in soccer. And when you face your desk, you might keep hitting your desk lamp and groan in annoyance. Oh!!

Cows also groan, don’t they!! Volume 70 is starting-horn!!!

Volume 71Volume-071-Intro-Image When a product sells really well, they say it’s a “hit”.

They go “Successful hit!!” “Major hit!!” “Ground-Breaking hiiiit!!!”.

And recently, I’ve been thinking. JUST CALL IT A HOME RUN AT THIS POINT!!!

Volume 71 begins now-kakiin!!

Volume 72Volume-072-Intro-Image Mini dog? Mini bird? Mini cow?

Adding “mini” before something makes it so much more adorable, doesn’t it.

Mini pig, mini rabbit, mini horse, mini rhombus, mini cat, mini bear, mini pernix, ministry…

Now then, the adorable mini-volume 72 MINI-STARTING NOW!!

Volume 73Volume-073-Intro-Image (←)Back when I was a student, I learned that this fellow here is Japan’s legendary regent, Prince Shotoku.

However, recently, there’s a theory that’s been going around that this portrait might have not been Shotoku himself, which is quite problematic for me. In other words, this means that my “Prince Shotoku had a huge appetite and constantly carried a shamoji (rice spoon) around with him” theory would also be proved false. So in the end, WHO IS THIS HUNGRY GUY!!! History is full of dreams and excitement. Volume 73, begin!!

Volume 74Volume-074-Intro-Image From time to time, people talk about things that have a mochi-like texture, and I’ve discovered a food that has a mochi-like texture as well. Mochi.

A mochi-like Volume 74, starting nowwwwwwwwwwwww!!!

(Translator’s Note: Text in image says “So mochi-like–, super mochi-like~~”)

Volume 75Volume-075-Intro-Image These days, people tend to prefer fancy terms when color-coding merchandise, like using “chocolate” over brown or “rose” over red. I like it.

Like “champagne gold” or “mint” or “wine”, “ruby”, “cherry”, “fudge”, “caramel”, “natto” “rice” “miso soup” “pickled plum” “now then” “the” “snot-colored” “volume 75”

STARTING NOW—–!!

Volume 76Volume-076-Intro-Image This famous Japanese saying that can be taken as even sexist. “A wife must always walk three steps behind her husband.”

This saying comes from ancient Japanese samurai culture. Let’s say we were one of those samurai who constantly carried around those dangerous Japanese swords, not knowing when we’d need to pull them out and fight- if that were the case, would we really make our loved ones walk right next to us? Those “3 steps” are equivalent to the distance we must make to keep our ladies safe!! If you’re a man, say this. “Take 3 steps back and follow me!!!” Take 3 steps back from volume 79, and this is “Volume 76”!!

Starting now-de gozaru~~!!!

Volume 77Volume-077-Intro-Image You know how if a figure skater or ballerina tried to add a taste of “cyclone” to their typical spins, they’ll either end up flying or getting themselves buried? Well, I figured, if you tried adding a taste of “cyclone” to your asshole, your **** would spurt out, spinning like crazy, and you wouldn’t even be constipated anymore.

VOLUME 77 WITH A TASTE OF CYCLONE!!!

STARTINGYURURURURURURUAAAAA…!!!

(Translator’s note: Text in image says “Gyururururu”. This is the sound effect for spinning.)

Volume 78Volume-078-Intro-Image The law that states that construction worker uniforms

cannot be this way DOES NOT EXIST!!! All you need is courage!! (and funds) The courageous Volume 78, starting now–!!

Volume 79Volume-079-Intro-Image

A person who ends his sentence with a musical note ? looks happier than necessary. 

Hiyashi chuka now on sale ?” 

“I’m going to commit seppuku ?”

“I don’t wanna die ?”

Blow away your depressed feelings by a musical note ?!

Now let’s start volume 79 ??

Volume 80Volume-080-Intro-Image Kids used to sing this song long ago, but it seems kids these days also sing it while jumping ropes, which reminds me of my childhood.

Kids “Let’s pick up the postman’s lost items! 1, 2, 3, …10!”
Postman “Thank you!”
It’s a cute song, but I wonder if the postman lost only letters. Honesty, youth, best friend, freedom, shining eyes and spirit of adventure!
Postman “Thank you!!” (crying bitterly)

Volume 80 now begins!!

Volume 81image-1 They say that half-bathing is good
for one’s health! Time for volume 81
to begin!!
Volume 82image-2 There’s a Japanese game called Atchi Muite Hoi (Look
That Way) where one player has to turn their head in
one of the four directions while the other player points
with a finger, hoping to guess the same direction.
Well, I’ve invented a secret weapon called Atchi Muite
Hoi 3-D that has ten directions instead. If a kid ever
challenges you to Atchi Muite Hoi, use this method to
childishly avoid losing!!
Volume 83Volume-083-Intro-Image I…I’ve been lied to!!!
Is it possible…that when you swallow watermelon
seeds…
They don’t grow inside your tummy?!
Is it possible that Volume 83 is about to start?!
Volume 84Volume-084-Intro-Image Would you believe it?! This T-shirt has the yellowness
of 300 lemons!! Volume 84 is about to begin!!
Volume 85Volume-085-Intro-Image Try making a four with your fingers! “Four!!”
Is it just me, or is your thumb bent way more
than you expected?!
Okay, here comes Volume 85!! Let’s go!!
Volume 86
Volume-086-Intro-Image-1
It’s the 20th anniversary of One Piece! Maybe it’s time… I actually take this seriously!!! Here comes volume 86!!

Volume-088-Intro-Image-1
1. Once there was a little pond of water ? (Yo?)

2. A ball fell in and splashed a lot or ? (SHOCK!!)
Maybe it’s a downcast eye? (Aye-aye ?)

3. And now it has begun to cry

4. Perhaps it’s dripping like a candle (hot wax ?)
Oops, we’ve had a company scandal ? (fat stacks ?)

We’re sorry ? for our crim-in-ali-ty
And hope you accept our a-po-lo-gy ?
