Data: One Piece searches rocket on Netflix success
September 18, 2023
The first question Fasthosts wanted to know: Are people who enjoyed the show going to check out the manga as well as the anime adaptation? The answer is a resounding yes. Searches for “One Piece anime” experienced a massive increase of 525 per cent alongside the release of the show, while the term “One Piece manga” saw a slightly smaller (but still significant) increase of 150 per cent. While both the manga and anime currently have major events occurring which are sure to have contributed to this increase, the attention the live action has garnered means that the majority of these additional searches are sure to be a result of it.
The first question many have about this 26 year old series isn’t surprising given its reputation, and the release of the series has got even more people searching for it than usual. The question “how long is One Piece?” has seen an increase in searches of 317 per cent since the release of the adaptation, as viewers try to find out just how much time they’ll need to invest to catch up (here are currently 1,092 chapters).
