Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece manga has taken another milestone as it was recently awarded by the Guinness World Record for having “the most copies published for the same comic book series by a single author.” The manga has printed 320,866,000 copies worldwide as of December 2014. The official website for One Piece shared the announcement on Monday.

Weekly Shonen Jump editor Yoshihisa Heishi received the award in behalf of Oda who couldn’t make it in the awarding ceremony held in Tokyo. The series has been serialized on Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine since 1997, and has also been published in several countries worldwide. Its anime adaptation began airing in 1999 and is still ongoing.
