The creator of ”one piece”, Eiichiro Oda, has just given a new preview of what will be the definitive final saga of the manga. Through a new statement about the imminent conclusion of the series. Oda took the opportunity to tell how he dreamed of creating a manga story from a very young age, always imagining ending his story with an ending that was too shocking and exciting.
“When I was a kid, I had this thought: ‘I wish I could draw a manga series where the ending is the most exciting part!'” Oda began. “Now, we’re almost done with the Wano Country arc and the whole prep work is done. It took me 25 years to get to this point,” Oda wrote, referring to the upcoming release of the final saga of one of the longest running shonen manga series.

Oda, who is known for giving small elements of his story years before they are published, assured that the final saga will end with the remaining plot threads. “I will draw all the mysteries left in this world that I have been hiding until now,” the author wrote. “It’s going to be very interesting. Please fasten your seat belts. Thank you very much, I hope you’ll follow me a little longer!”
The first chapter of the final saga of “One Piece” is planned to be published in Japan on July 25, confirming that it will be the conclusion of Luffy’s long mission and adventure. Even last June, Oda took a four-week break that gave him time to prepare for the final saga, as well as prepare for the 25th anniversary of ”One Piece”, which will be celebrated with a live broadcast on June 22. and July 23.

“One Piece” is known for having sagas of great duration, so it must be taken into account that although this will be the final saga, it may be a long time to see the full conclusion of the Straw Hat Pirates. For example, the recent Wano Country arc, which is just one of four story arcs contained in that larger saga, was serialized for almost four years and published its first chapter in July 2018.
Since its premiere in 1997, “One Piece” has managed to become the best-selling manga of all time, with more than half a billion copies in circulation worldwide. The entire anime series is available for streaming on Crunchyrollwhile select seasons and several of the franchise’s animated films are available for streaming on Netflix.
