"1000 chapters!! Well, a whole lot has happened in the last 23 years. I have spent half my life [publishing One Piece weekly]," Oda said, according to a translation.
"Luffy has taken voyages to many islands and had tons of adventures. I don't know how many people he has met! Likewise, I have met many people and have been supported by many including my family. I can't give enough thanks to those people,” he added.
Oda also seemed to hint that the story is approaching its "final arc," and asked fans to continue supporting Luffy for “a little bit longer.”
