Fans of the One Piece manga series know that after releasing three consecutive manga chapters, the series’ author, Eiichiro Oda, takes a week off to recover and ponder about where the tale should go next. Oda, on the other hand, will take a month off to prepare for One Piece’s ‘Final Saga.’
The official Twitter account for the One Piece manga confirmed that the series will take a one-month hiatus as Oda prepares for the book’s 25th anniversary celebration and ‘final saga.’ One Piece will go on hiatus on June 27 in the 30th edition of Weekly Shonen Jump, thus there are still two manga chapters to be released before the hiatus begins. On July 25, chapter 1054 of the manga series will be released.
Several people warned Oda that this summer would be difficult because he would be busy with the manga’s 25th anniversary celebrations, the release of One Piece film Red in theaters, his plan to go to Africa to oversee the production of One Piece live action, and the conclusion of the Wano Arc all at the same time. These individuals requested that Oda take a sabbatical from drawing the manga, but Oda first refused. However, he then realized that he needed more time to prepare, so he chose to take a sabbatical. Due to the pandemic, Oda will be unable to attend the One Piece live action set in Africa.
On Wednesday, Uta and Gordan’s cast members for One Piece Film Red will be revealed. A new trailer for the film will be released, as well as a new poster by Eiichiro Oda. In Japan, the One Piece feature Red will be released on August 6. The film has yet to be given a worldwide release date.
