How long would it take you to read the entire One Piece series at once? Today, we tell you everything!

In the world of manga, there are a few that are particularly notable for their insane length. Like that, we think of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, Hajime no Ippo – which is part of our list of 5 series cult sport to rediscover – or of course One Piece! The adventures of Luffy have indeed lasted since 1997, with a particularly impressive continuity since the longest break ever taken by Eiichiro Oda has been 1 monthduring this year 2022. The series has thus just reached its 102nd volume, as well as its chapter 1061. A length that challenges. And if ever we decided to read the whole work in sequence, how long would it take?

An impressive number of volumes to read

On average, a chapter of One Piece reads according to people in 5 to 10 minutes. If we take an intermediate time between the two durations, ie 8 minutes, and then multiply by the current number of chapters (1061) we arrive at 8488 minutes, which represents approximately 142 hours. If we assumed that you decided not to sleep during the whole time of your reading, then you would need a little less than 6 days to binge-read One Piece.

If we tried to fall into a more realistic hypothesis, and we still allowed ourselves 8 hours of sleep, reading all of the adventures of the Mugiwara would require a little extra time, and you would then need almost 9 days to swallow it all!

And really, how long does it take?

Here, we were in the hypothetical domain. If we come back to reality, and try to adapt to the average French reading time, which is 6h54 per week, or 59 minutes per day, you would need 144 days to read the whole ‘work.
