Now, if this date sounds familiar to you, then you are definitely following. A play. The manga is on hiatus this week but will begin its next chapter on March 28 in Japan. The big update will welcome Chapter 1044 to the world, and if you didn’t know, this new chapter promises to answer some big questions about Luffy and the Joy Boy.
After all, the manga just came out A play fans read with Luffy and his rebirth. The hero started Chapter 1043 in a bad place as Kaido managed to defeat the Straw Hat Captain. Kaido went on to say that the hero was dead and, as you can imagine, the entire Straw Hat crew was devastated. However, in the final moments of the chapter, Momo seemed to realize something was wrong. It was then that Luffy saw the shadow awakening on the battlefield where he was defeated, and the manga stated that the Joy Boy has now returned.
