    Thanks to Redon, ScotchInformer and YonkouProductions

    Weekly Shonen Jump has announced this week that fans will have a new One Piece databook this year.

    The databook is titled "Vivre Card - One Piece Visual Dictionary" and it's keyword is "Freedom" and it will have information on Fishman Island, Punk Hazard, Dressrosa, Zou, Whole Cake Island (and maybe Reverie too).
    [​IMG]
    - Oda and Shueisha staff have been discussing publishing this new Databook/Fanbook for "10 years".
    - It will be a completely new type and different book from other Databook/Fanbook.
    - Naito (One Piece editor) says this Databook/Fanbook is "never-ending".


    This new databook will be on sale 4th September, the same day as One Piece Volume 90.

    Many thanks to @Artur for this outstanding summary of what exactly to expect for this new data book.
    [​IMG]

    The Databook is called “Vivre Card ~One Piece Illustrated Guidebook~” and will serve as a collection of several “vivre cards”, or in essence, datafiles, for all the characters in the series, giving a deep look at each of them, with information and stats for each and every one, with some of the information being completely new.

    [​IMG]

    The drawing for the cover. Katakuri is huge!

    However, here’s the catch: the book only serves as a binder and each of the “cards” are in fact standalone cards, separated pages that can be added to the book. Picture it like one of those classic collectible card binders, where you could put in your Pokémon cards and display your entire collection. It’s the same case here, where rather than collecting Pokémon, you’re collecting One Piece characters, with each card being a complete datafile. Here you can see how it works:

    (some of these images are courtesy of Takeshi Oowada. You can check his video here to see how the databook works in person!)

    [​IMG]
    Each “card”, or page, is inserted into the binder. Keep in mind though, this binder is only a placeholder, the final binder will look much more detailed
    [​IMG]

    Each card is slightly larger than a normal Japanese OP volume page. Use the finger as reference.
    [​IMG]
    Luffy’s info profile. From top to bottom, includes: gender, residence, birthday, age, height, astrological sign, blood type, birthplace, favorite food, bounty and Voice Actor.


    So going over it again, each page of the databook is obtained individually and can be added by putting it into the binder. The original databook only comes with about 32 cards from what has been said, with other “booster packs” coming in the following months that will include more cards which can then be added to your collection.

    Now, it hasn’t been specified, but it’s implied that the booster packs will not be randomized, as they’ll include a specific group of cards of certain characters (example: “Arlong Parc Arc characters booster back”) and should be a complete pack. That said, it’s not officially confirmed that they aren’t randomized, but it’s been heavily implied that each pack will be a complete one.

    So for now, let’s break down what characters will be in each pack!

    The original book features 32 cards, which have been revealed to be the ones found below:

    [​IMG]

    The characters included in the first volume are all those who appeared up until the end of the Buggy Arc, as well as the main crew of Straw Hats in their post-timeskip cards. Furthermore, there are three extra cards:


    • One of them is Extra Characters Vol. 1, which includes minor characters that don’t get their own individual card as there isn’t enough information about them. This includes Anjo, Monstar, Mikio Itoo, Gyoru&Chiken, Woop Slap, Lord of the Coast, Heppoko&Peppoko&Poppoko, Soro and Rika among others. There should be two of them in this pack and more should be included in further booster packs for all the smaller and less-known characters.
    • The other extra card is “Gomu Gomu no Mi Vol. 1”, which will include a listing of all the Gomu Gomu no Mi attacks, which will be further updated in future packs. This might hint at other “cards” coming in the future for other types of things, such as devil fruits, locations, ships and other things, making this an ever-expanding databook.
    • And finally, there’s an extra card known as “My Card”. It’s a blank template, so you can write your own info and put a photo of yourself in it!
    Beyond these initial cards, the aforementioned “booster packs” will arrive each month around the beginning (Amazon lists them on the 2nd-4th of each month). Each pack has 16 cards, so each month you are getting 32 additional cards to add to the binder. Here are the ones that we know will be coming in the upcoming months:

    – October 2018:

    Booster Pack 1: “Villains of East Blue!!”:Includes characters from the Syrup Village and Baratie arcs, with Kuro, Usopp (Pre-Ts), Krieg and Gin being announced already.

    Booster Pack 2: “Gather! Supernovae!!”:Includes the eleven supernovas (supposedly excluding Zoro and Luffy), with Law, Urouge and Bege being announced already.

    – November 2018:

    Booster Pack 3: “Arlong’s Crew and the people of Cocoyasi Village”: Supposedly includes characters from the Arlong Park arc, including his crew as well as the people from Cocoyasi.

    Booster pack 4: “Impel Down staff VS prisoners!!”: Supposedly includes the staff members of Impel Down as well as its known prisoners.

    – December 2018:

    Booster Pack 5: “The sand Kingdom – Alabasta’s elites!!”: Assuming from the name it will likely include characters from Alabasta, maybe from Drum Island as well.

    Booster Pack 6: “The yonko crew, the Whitebeard Pirates!!”: Supposedly includes the members of the Whitebeard Pirates.

    – January 2019:

    Booster Pack 7: “Gather! Secret Society Baroque Works”: Supposedly includes the members of Baroque Works.

    Booster Pack 8: “Paradise on the Ocean Floor – Residents of Fishman Island!!”:Supposedly includes the inhabitants of Fishman Island.

    – February 2019:

    Booster Pack 9: “~Sky Island’s strong enemies~”: Judging from the name, will likely include Enel’s forces.

    Booster Pack 10: “~Fishman Island’s strong enemies~”: Judging by the name, will likely include Hody’s forces, the New Fishman Pirates.

    And these are all the ones we currently know, but it can be assumed there will be more to come. You might have seen a pattern here and it’s the fact that each of the packs advances through each arc at different points in the story. The first pack in the month covers the first half of the series, advancing from East Blue, to Alabasta, to Skypiea, while the second pack of the month covers the second half, from Sabaody, to Impel Down, to the Whitebeard Pirates, to Fishman Island. Judging by the amount of remaining arcs, there might be another 10 or so packs after this, at least for the main characters.

    Furthermore, there’s a bonus offer for two additional cards, though these aren’t really part of the book, they’re more like bonuses. If you buy issue nº40 of JUMP this week, you can get a bonus two alt cards, being Luffy Wano version (Luffy-tarou) and Zoro Wano version (Zoro-juurou). But again, these seem to just be alts, so don’t fret too much if you can’t get them.

    [​IMG]

    So that’s about it! To recapitulate, the original book comes with a binder as well as 32 cards and each month we’re going to get more and more. The editor said this databook would be “neverending” and has already hinted at the fact that they might keep adding more cards even after the Wano arc is over, making this the ultimate One Piece databook! While the format might be incovenient for some, this might really help out in the long run to keep the databook ordered and updated. But anyways, if you have any doubts, feel free to ask @Artur any questions! But before you do so, check this FAQ to see if it can already answer your question:


    • Q: How many cards are in the original release? A: 32, see above.
    • Q: How many cards are in each booster pack? A: 16 per booster pack, meaning 32 new cards come out each month.
    • Q: What language is the databook in? A: Japanese.
    • Q: Will it be available in English? A: No. Sadly, Viz has never translated any of the databooks and the fact that it comes in cards makes it even more unlikely. It’s possible that in some other language like French, German, Italian or Spanish it might get translated, but given the format, again, it’s unlikely.
    • Q: When is it coming out? A: September 4th, with two booster packs coming around the beginning of every month.
    • Q: How much does it cost? A: The book is 1350 yen, or about 12 US dollars. Each booster pack will cost 421 yen, or about 3.8 US dollars. This is of course, excluding shipping.
    • Q: Where can I buy it? A: Either amazon.co.jp or other sites that re-sell Japanese products, it shouldn’t be too hard to order, no matter where you are in the world (shipping prices might be a little expensive though).
    • Q: Why should we care about it? A: This databook will likely contain a bunch of new information, as it seems to include English romanizations for all characters as well as information such as heights, etc. that were not known before. It’s even been said that it’ll include previously unseen sketches by Oda.
    • Q: Is our lord and savior Buggy-sama included in it? A: Yep! In fact, he comes with the first group together with the book!

    I just hope there will be a huge section for the Charlotte Family and their single members and their birth order. This is all i want to know. Also i hope they reveal Gala as well as he didn't even showed up, unlike Snack. So many hopes, yet so many fears that all these will be blown away by the wind lol

    I hope we will get Pica’s height and more info about the gear 4 modes. And also an explanation on how exactly Future sight works.
    Maybe some confirmation about the flame pattern of some Koka user.

    Of course databooks are canon because all of them are actual information from Oda.

    Personnally I consider them secondary canon...

    I'm not sarcastic. He tells information like character height, weight etc and other things there which we could never know from the actual manga.

    Sorry haven’t seen this one.

    Bye about Reverie as well? Does that really mean it has ended or Wano could be there as well even if unfinished

    Considering the whole sabo is dead disaster, I won't say they are canon.

    To state that Sabo was dead, like he was in the manga, was the best way to handle the situation back then...

    The best way to handle the situation was to not comment on it. A source cannot be canon and provide false information at the same time.

    That would be sus as hell to not mention it...
    All the databook did was going along what the manga already told us to that point...
    I really don't see the big deal here...

    The manga only implied it. And the manga even threw in a few panels the next chapter of a boy getting rescued from sea. spoiler: it was sabo that got rescued.

    It doesn't change the fact that if a source is canon, then we can trust everything from it to be to true. Because there is a piece of information from a databook that was not true, it cannot be considered canon.

    Let's consider another character who's living/dead status is unknown: Monet. I think she is probably dead but she isn't confirmed dead. So now if the new databook says monet is dead, can we say that it is confirmed that monet is dead? If the databook is considered canon, then monet would be confirmed dead if it says so. But the trust is no longer there coz of the sabo is dead fiasco. In fact, I might even go as far as to say that the databook saying Monet is dead confirms Monet is alive.

    You mean like the manga told us that Luffy and Ace are brothers?
    Which got corrected in a newer source...
    Similar to the Sabo thing because it was Green which stated he's dead as a fact but Deep Blue apparently only implied it (according to this summary that I found)...
    Do you know the term secondary canon?
    I consider Databooks as such...
    It means that the things can be considered canon as long as there's no contradiction to the primary canon source (the manga/SBS)...
    So all the stuff that got explained/introduced only on Databooks is noncanon?
    Why did Oda refer to a databook in this SBS question?

    Ace and luffy are indeed brothers. There was no correction. They just weren't blood-related brothers. Luffy does believe ace is his brother and rightfully called him so.
