It’s always painful to imagine that One Piece might end someday, and as much as we hate to accept it, the manga is now almost at the finishing line.

But there are still many questions left unanswered, like how the story will build up to Luffy finding the treasure or the fall of the World Government. Not to forget the entire mystery of the Void Century and why the Government forbids people from exploring it.

Since there’s so much left to unpack, it only makes sense that Oda will need some time to think it through. The One Piece manga will go on a one-month break from Weekly Shonen Jump’s 30th issue on June 27 till its 33rd issue.

It will be back in the magazine’s 34th issue on July 25.

[From Oda to everyone]

Considering how Oda has so much on his plate this year, with a new anime film, winding up the Wano arc, looking over the live-action production, and most importantly, the series’ 25th anniversary, it became a lot to manage.

Many people advised him to take things slow or put the manga on a break, but he refused to do that until now. Oda’s writing style is unpredictable, and he loves proving all fan theories wrong by coming up with something unexpected.

However, having such a huge fan base makes it difficult to keep track of all theories and provide a new one that no one has thought of. So, to tackle this and his overly-packed schedule, the mangaka had to put One Piece on a break for the time being.

There are still two more chapters left before the manga and Oda go on their much-needed break.

Oda will provide us with nothing short of a masterpiece finale, but I’m still curious about what he’ll come up with that can top the Wano Country arc.

About One Piece

One Piece is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine since July 22, 1997.

The man who had acquired everything in this world, the Pirate King, is Gol D. Roger. The final words he said at the execution tower were “My treasures? If you want it, I’ll let you have it. Look for it; I left all of it at that place.” These words sent many to the seas, chasing their dreams, headed toward the Grand Line, in search of One Piece. Thus began a new age!

Seeking to be the greatest pirate in the world, young Monkey D. Luffy also heads toward the Grand Line in search of One Piece. His diverse crew is joining him along the way, consisting of a swordsman, marksman, navigator, cook, doctor, archaeologist, and cyborg-shipwright, this will be one memorable adventure.
