The interaction between Eiichiro Oda and the ONE PIECE’s biggest fan, GReeeeN began in August 2018 when Mr.Oda was invited by their mutual acquaintance to GReeeeN’s national tour, “俺らレボリューション (Our Revolution).”

After the live, Mr.Oda commented at the end of Shonen Jump Vol.45 issued on October 7th as follows:

“By coincidence, I went to watch GReeeeN’s live show, and I was just taken by awe. What is this futuristic experience!! <Eiichiro>.”

Then at the end of Shonen Jump Vol.41 issued on November 7th, 2015, Mr.Oda made a comment as follows:

“Well, GReeeeN. All the members’ personality is surprisingly awesome. I want to do something together someday. <Eiichiro>.”

.

This comment was also printed onto a book band of a teens novel about GReeeeN, “それってキセキ~GReeeeNの物語” (written by Narumi Komatsu/KADOKAWA.) / It showed their deep relationship.


The author of world-renown comics which a total number of issued copies is over 350 million that attained a Guinness World Record title of the “Most copies published for the same comic book series by a single author.” The artist whose iconic single “キセキ (Kiseki)” was downloaded more than 50 million times in Japan and also attained a Guinness World Record title. The greatest collaboration of two great artists is finally here!!!

At ONE PIECE Series the 20th Anniversary Special Exhibition “Log Gallery,” we will look back to 20 years of comic series with GReeeeN's messages. For ONE PIECE LIVE ATTRACTION “3” PHANTOM, they will unfold the greatest entertainment weaved by Oda Eiichiro’s supervision and GReeeeN’s songs with their passionate love for ONE PIECE.

What is a dream? What are friends?

These messages that ONE PIECE endlessly sends out have strongly touched GReeeeN’s heart who are thriving in the frontline of the music scene. This spring, the long-awaited collaboration of these two will erupt at the mecca of ONE PIECE, One Piece Tower.
