The official site of one piece shared an unexpected surprise for fans of the sleeve, Well, in a video we can see the production process for volume 102 cover of the series.
Just like 101 volumes before, the cover is drawn by the same author of the work (Eiichiro Oda) that goes from a simple sketch with circles, lines and reference points to becoming the cover of the 102nd volume of the manga, which will be published in Japan on April 04.
Following the frequency of its previous volumes, volume 102 of one piece would have a total of 10 chapters and would cover the events of the series between chapters 1,026 (“Crucial shock”) and 1,035 (“Zoro vs. King”).
