Over the years, many hit series have come and gone but One Piece has succeeded in remaining on top of the list. However, the manga series has its fans worried over its temporary leave of absence.
With the current global COVID-19 pandemic, most of the world is at a complete standstill and the case appears to be the same for the One Piece franchise.
One Piece’s strongest points are the solid character development and the way it describes the thriving world in which they live.
Through Eiichiro Oda’s wonderful storytelling, the series always makes one excited to keep reading and see what new adventures await Monkey D. Luffy and his crew.
Weekly Shonen Jump has confirmed that the manga is going on a break because creator Eiichiro Oda has become sick but it doesn’t appear to be anything related to the fast-spreading virus.
The creator Eiichiro Oda’s breaks maintained a consistent habit of pausing every four chapters for a few years, but it seems that by 2019 the breaks have become more frequent.
“One Piece” was officially recognized by Guinness World Records as the comic book series with the most copies published by a single author.
As of now, One Piece manga is set to release its 990th chapter at 9 AM on Sunday, September 13th, 2020.
