One Piece started its journey in 1997, but it really hit the big time worldwide around the early 2000s. That's when the anime kicked off and the manga was getting translated into multiple languages. Plus, with the internet's rise, fans globally could access and rave about it together.

2008 was THE year for One Piece. That's when it truly became a global phenomenon, thanks to improved internet access and the spread of anime culture worldwide.

It's been popular from the start in Japan, but I'd say One Piece's popularity exploded internationally with the advent of online streaming. Suddenly everyone could watch Luffy's adventures without waiting for local releases.

IMO, One Piece was always cool. It just took the rest of the world a bit to catch on.
