One Piece manga will take a one-month break

Following the completion of the most current arc, Eiichiro Oda, the author of the long-running manga One Piece, revealed that he would be taking a month off to prepare for the series' 25th anniversary. From June 27 to July 25, the manga will be on pause in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. According to a prominent fan translation Twitter account, the manga will return with one "last tale" after the hiatus.

One Piece is one of the most popular and long-running shonen anime series of all time. The first chapter was released by Shueisha in 1997. The weekly serialized tale has surpassed 1,000 chapters since its inception. This is the longest absence from the manga since Oda took four weeks off during the story's time jump and then steered the plot in a new path.

Fans are discussing if the statement indicates the plot has only one arc remaining or that it will end shortly. Regardless, we've known for a long time that Luffy's journey was coming to a close; Oda announced in 2020 that One Piece will be finished in five years.

One Piece has also been made into an anime series. Netflix has confirmed a live-action remake of the series for 2020. Netflix released further details on how filming is going on Tuesday, including a glance at some of the lavish boats we'll see in the new series. In addition, to commemorate the manga's 25th anniversary, a video game will be released that offers an original tale.
