Eiichiro Oda’s decisive announcement
After a one-month hiatus, One Piece has (finally) resumed its usual rhythm of publication for the manga. If Eiichiro Oda confirmed in the Weekly Shōnen Jump that his work will be finished in 3 years, there are still many mysteries to be elucidated, in particular concerning the crew of the mugiwara. So recently we learned that Yamato, the powerful daughter of Kaido was going join Luffy in his latest adventuresan announcement by the author leads us to believe that she is not the last to join the party.
In a recent interview for the Jump, the Japanese mangaka confided that there was still a place to be filled in the crew of the straw hat. It remains to be seen who will be the lucky one who will be able to participate in the journey to Laugh Tale and the legendary treasure of Gol D. Roger.
Who will be the last character to join the mugiwara?

For many, it could be someone who is close to the crew and has been on some adventures before. As vivi, kinemon or carrot. UtaShanks’ daughter will be introduced in the next film RED and could cause surprise. But given the turn taken by the manga, Luffy will need a more powerful ally in his crew.
boa hancock who is no longer a corsair and who is in love with Luffy could follow him anywhere.

Unless it’s a character who will be introduced during the next arc: the island of the giants of Elbaf? To find out, we will have to wait and continue reading the chapters of One Piece.
