One Piece is one of the world’s most beloved and longest-running animes – but how many episodes are there and how long would it take you to watch the whole series, plus the movies?

One Piece is an anime adaptation of Eiichiro Oda’s shonen manga. First published in 1997, the series evolved into a media behemoth, spawning one of the most successful anime shows ever made.

It follows the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy, a teenager who turns to rubber and sails the high seas in pursuit of the mythical, titular One Piece in a bid to proclaim himself the King of the Pirates. Over the course of 25 years, it’s become one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time.

How long would it take to watch all of One Piece?

Right now, it would take nearly 442 hours to watch One Piece – that’s 18-and-a-half days’ worth of anime without a single break.

Including their opening and closing themes, and factoring in credits, each episode of One Piece is between 22-24 minutes long. For easiness sake, let’s just say each episode is 24 minutes. Multiply that by 1,049 and you have 419.6 hours.

If you add all of their runtimes up, the 15 movies amount to another 22.1 hours, which equals 441.7 hours.

You may love One Piece, but you can’t watch TV for more than 18 days straight. So, let’s plan it out: if you spent nine hours watching the anime each day, it would take just over 49 days.

What if you didn’t have that sort of time to spare? What if you’re a working person who just wants to squeeze in two hours before going to bed? Well, you’re in it for the long haul: with just two hours of One Piece each day, it would take nearly 221 days – that’s more than seven months of dedicated viewing.
