Shueisha has announced that Eiichiro Oda will be putting his One Piece manga on hiatus for a month to prepare for the “final saga”. The manga will be on break from the 27th of June 2022 and will return on the 25th of July 2022, meaning that there will be two more chapters before the hiatus begins.

Whilst the next saga is the last it could still be quite some time before the series actually ends as it would depend on how many arcs Oda-san decides to add and how long each one will be.

Oda-san has also revealed that this Summer will be quite difficult for him as he is working on One Piece Film Red. Oda-san also confirmed that he will not be able to join Netflix in South Africa for the filming of the live-action Netflix adaptation due to the pandemic and apologised to fans. No other details were revealed.

MAL Synopsis:

Gol D. Roger was known as the “Pirate King,” the strongest and most infamous being to have sailed the Grand Line. The capture and execution of Roger by the World Government brought a change throughout the world. His last words before his death revealed the existence of the greatest treasure in the world, One Piece. It was this revelation that brought about the Grand Age of Pirates, men who dreamed of finding One Piece—which promises an unlimited amount of riches and fame—and quite possibly the pinnacle of glory and the title of the Pirate King.

Enter Monkey D. Luffy, a 17-year-old boy who defies your standard definition of a pirate. Rather than the popular persona of a wicked, hardened, toothless pirate ransacking villages for fun, Luffy’s reason for being a pirate is one of pure wonder: the thought of an exciting adventure that leads him to intriguing people and ultimately, the promised treasure. Following in the footsteps of his childhood hero, Luffy and his crew travel across the Grand Line, experiencing crazy adventures, unveiling dark mysteries and battling strong enemies, all in order to reach the most coveted of all fortunes—One Piece.
