How many episodes are there?
Currently, the anime is on Episode 290
The next episode airs on January 14, 2007.
We don't know how many episodes there are going to be in total. The series is still ongoing and it doesn't look like it's going to end anytime soon. ^_^
The anime generally follows the manga, with slight deviations every once and a while in the form of fillers.
What about the manga?
The manga is still ongoing as well. It's currently on Chapter 440
Where can I get the manga?
Hahaha, there might be a group translating it, BUT I CANNOT TELL YOU. The manga is licenced by Viz. Therefore, the fan translations are illegal and I cannot give you any information on where to obtain scanlations.
At one time this show was unlicensed and someone did fansub a lot of it, but that was before the show was licensed. Now the anime is licensed, so don't bother us by asking where to get them.
When do I watch the movies?
-Watch Movie 1 "One Piece the Movie" after ep. 18 (End of Usopp Arc)
-Watch Movie 2 "Adventure on Clockwork Island" after ep. 56 (They introduce Sanji in earlier ep but Nami has to be an official member. End of Nami/Arlong Arc. So, best after ep 45. It was aired after episode 56, so you can watch it then.). Also goes with Movie Short - Jango's Dance Carnival.
-Watch Movie 3 "Chopper's Kingdom on the Island of Strange Animals" after ep. 95 or so (Movie that has Chopper, but Vivi wasn't in the movie so maybe after ep 129 but before 130. This a mess up movie with no real place in the timeline.) Also goes with Movie Short - Dream Soccer King
-Watch Movie 4 "Dead End Adventure" after ep. 130 (End of Arabasta Arc)
-Watch Movie 5 "The Curse of the Sacred Sword" after ep. 183. Also goes with Movie Short - Become the Pirate Baseball Kings!
-Watch Movie 6 "Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island" after ep. 223
-Watch Movie 7 "Karakuri Castle's Giant Mecha Soldier" after ep. 257
Upcomming movie " One Piece: Episode of Arabasta" comes out March 3, 2007. It will be retelling the Arabasta arc but with a different story and same characters
(Note: All movies after Movie 4 contain all current crew members, and thusly can be watched at any point in the series where Robin and Chopper are present. For movies 5-7, the episode number is simply the episode before the movie was released.)
When do I watch the TV specials?
-Watch Special 1 "Adventure in the Ocean's Navel" after episode 53.
-Watch Special 2 "Open Upon the Sea! A Father's Huge, HUGE Dream!" after episode 149.
-Watch Special 3 "Protect! The Last Great Performance!" after episode 174.
-Watch Special 4 "The Detective Memoirs of Chief Straw Hat Luffy" after episode 253.
-Watch Special 5 "Boss Luffy Again! Dream or Reality Lottery Riot" after episode 290

Because I’ve gotten a few questions as to the proper spelling of Vivi’s kingdom (her name is in fact Vivi, not Bibi or BB), here’s the answer from the One Piece Grand Data Files. Spelled out in English.
ubarna. The name of the kingdom is properly spelled with an R
and the capitol of the kingdom is properly spelled with an L
. Got it?
Also, for the curious -
The woman who takes in Nami and Nojiko is Bellemere.
The doctor from the Drum kingdom is Dr. Hiluluk. Two L’s.
Roronoa Zoro is how to properly spell the swordsman’s name. The American Zolo is incorrect, as is Zorro.
Benn Beckman, Shanks’ first mate, is properly spelled with two N’s.
The two giants from Little Garden are Burogy and Dorey.
The two bounty hunters that followed Zoro were Yosaku and Johnny.
The mayor of Water 7 is Iceburg, with a U. The word itself is properly spelled Iceberg.
If you guys have more FAQ you want to put up here, just say so.
Send me a PM for questions you don't want to/can't ask about on the forums.
