A recent tweet posted to the official Shonen Jump twitter account has confirmed a new promotion to celebrate the upcoming release of the newest One Piece manga chapter. The company will be giving away free chapters every week, with a new batch available every seven days.
The next chapter in the long-running One Piece series will be a milestone as the series crosses the threshold into 1,000 chapters. This week’s free chapters, 72-81, are from the manga’s ninth volume, titled East Blue. The East Blue arc includes the straw hat-wearing protagonist, Luffy, acquiring a ship and adding the characters Zolo, Nami, Usopp, and Sanji to his crew, The Straw Hats.
