“On July 25, after a period of hiatus, One Piece will start its last chapter“. These words, published in the official manga networks, have come to confirm the bombshell that Eiichiro Oda released yesterday about the beginning of the end. Above they are accompanied by a commemorative image to celebrate the occasion. And what an image! In it we see Luffy’s silhouette with, in the background, the manga panels in which his companions shouted to the world that he was going to be the future King of the Pirates, often when all seemed lost. Spiky hairs.
(Be careful because the image has manga spoilersbecause in it there is also a panel on the last and recently confirmed tenth nakama of the Straw Hats).
The end of One Piece is drawing near
In this way, after the chapter on June 19, There will be no One Piece manga in four weeks. It is the biggest break in the series in its 25-year history (which is this same 2022). Something similar had only happened once, between chapters 597 and 598, when it happened. the famous time skip. There were four weeks between the two and the break symbolized the passage of two years within the world of One Piece. around him, all the characters came back changedbrimming with new powers and ready for the New World.
Although Oda used the word “arc” to refer to this ending and the tweet speaks of “chapter”, most likely it is a saga. There are too many topics left to cover to be a mere story arc (Laught Tale, Shanks, Luffy’s father, the confrontations with Blackbeard and the World Government, the resolution of the Levely, etc.). A saga would make more sense, since the last one, the saga of the Four Emperors, it has lasted almost eight years and encompassed stories as wide as Zou, Whole Cake Island, and Wano.
Come on, the end begins, but still One Piece left for a while. We will have to wait to see what the remaining chapters say, 1052 and 1053 (here we told you when they come out) to know where we are. In fact, maybe even plots as important as Shanks’s will be resolved in One Piece RED, the new movie scheduled for August. Unpublished details have already been revealed in their trailers, such as the relationship between Luffy and Shanks’ daughter. We can only tell you one thing: have faith in Oda.
