As you already know, One Piece is one of the most popular manga and anime series worldwide. It has sold millions of copies each year and has even made the New York best seller’s list for books several times in a row. It all started in July of 1997 when creator Eiichiro Oda had the series serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shounen Jump. He envisioned his manga to end within 5 years. However, as more ideas came into his mind, he just continued writing and drawing the manga we know now today after over 15 years. The anime first aired 2 years after the manga was published in October of 1999. So far the anime has 727 episodes as well as 12 movies with another on the way titled “One Piece Film: Gold” coming out this year in July.

We won’t talk about One Piece today, but about one of the favorite lady’s man and chef Sanji! The Straw Hat crew would probably go hungry without his extraordinary cooking skills! Despite having a fun and electric personality, when it comes down to serious issues he is always beside his crew. In the latest issue of Shueisha’s Shounen Weekly, the truth about Sanji’s real name was revealed in One Piece chapter 812. In honor of this we want to explore with you some of the awesome figures that are a perfect match for all Sanji lovers. Let’s go for it!
