On Tuesday, June 7, 2022, the official Twitter account for the One Piece manga announced that the series would take a one-month break (four issues) beginning with the 30th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, which will be released on June 27.

One Piece entering its ‘Final Arc’ has shocked the fans 

The official Twitter account for the One Piece manga confirmed that the series would take a one-month break as Oda prepares for the book’s 25th-anniversary celebration and ‘final saga.’ One Piece will go on vacation on June 27 in the 30th edition of Weekly Shonen Jump, thus there are still two manga chapters to be printed before the break begins. The manga series will return on July 25 with chapter 1054.

Oda stated in a comment that several people repeatedly told him a few months ago that this summer would be difficult due to the release of One Piece Film Red in theatres, the manga’s 25th anniversary in July, and his plans to travel to Africa to oversee the filming of the live-action Netflix series, and the conclusion of the Wano Country arc all falling on the same day. Those individuals advised that Oda take a month off in the summer, but Oda was first hesitant. However, he then changed his mind and realized that he needed some time to prepare, so he is taking a break. Oda also stated that he is unable to travel to Africa owing to the pandemic.

Since its debut in 1997, One Piece has managed to become the best-selling manga of all time, with over half a billion copies in circulation around the world. Knowing that our favorite manga series is entering its final arc is heartbreaking and exciting simultaneously. Fans are eagerly waiting to witness how the series end and now that we have the series’ upcoming 15th feature-length animated movie, One Piece Film: Red, sitting back is a lot to ask for.
