1997 for the manga and 1999 for the anime. Short and sweet, like Luffy's initial bounty!

One Piece first set sail on the grand adventure in the pages of Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine back in July 1997. That's when the manga series kicked off, introducing us to Luffy and his ambitious quest. The anime series followed soon after, airing its first episode in October 1999. So, whether you're diving into the manga or the anime, you're looking at a journey that began in the late '90s!

Honestly, considering how long it's been going and how it still manages to keep fans on their toes, does it really matter? But for the sake of the question, manga in 1997 and anime in 1999.
