Three years. Eiichiro Oda wants to finish One Piece in three years. “I know I’ve answered this question so many times that I’ve already lost all credibility,” the author declared in an interview on the occasion of the manga’s 25th anniversary, “and maybe I shouldn’t say this out loud, because then things never turn out the way you wantbut currently my goal is to finish in three years.”
Will One Piece end in 2025?
And although we all always joke about Oda’s curious times (it’s as if one year of his is equivalent to many more of ours), there are several analyzes of his statements that show that the author’s forecasts are not usually so far from reality how we think Okay, yes, he said that Wano started in 2017 and ended up starting in 2019. He also promised, for example, that Shanks would make “his big move” at the end of 2021 and he hasn’t done it until this week, already in the middle of 2022. But however, the differences are not so wide. Maybe his three years will turn into fivebut the end already seems close and inescapable.
In 2002, Oda spoke of 20 years (until 2022). In 2014 he estimated that One Piece would last 10 more years (until 2024). And in 2020 he predicted that he was missing about 4 or 5 years (again, 2024 or 2025). The roadmap seems clear, although you never really know since there is much to tell and the characters do not stop moving and growing. “We are all sailorsOda joked.
Obviously Oda saying he plans to end One Piece in 3 years doesn’t mean he necessarily will. but at the same time, he’s been fairly accurate in the past and he’s not a liar like some rumors say he is. Here’s a chart of Oda’s estimates in the past:https://t.co/oHehFgJIMN pic.twitter.com/dTZBEiccel

What will the end of One Piece be like?
Regarding the ending, the author has repeated once again that it is very clear. He admits that some specific aspects of it have been changing, but insists that in his head he knows exactly how he will draw the final chapter of One Piece. And watch out because he also makes it clear that the series will end when it is known what the One Piece is.
This is an important detail, as many theories suggested that Luffy would reach Laugh Tale and find the One Piece before that end. These lucubrations, with millions of followers, were based on the fact that there would be discovered the great mystery of the Empty Century and in which this would trigger the final battle against the Navy. However, if it happens, all that will be before.
“Things are heating up in Wano, but if Luffy makes it out safe and sound, events in the rest of the world will unfold at breakneck speed. A story like you’ve never read. I will draw the biggest battle in One Piece history. It will be exciting. I make such an announcement foryou are mentally prepared that even a story as long as this is nearing its end. Then it’s not that I want to stop, it’s that the series will end because the most exciting part of Luffy’s adventure, the question of what is One Piece, will have its answer and conclusion. But for now, take your time to enjoy the closing of Wano. I will draw with all my might!”
In another order of things, this week we were wondering if Shanks is the great villain of One Piece, we have seen the first photo of Shanks in the Netflix series with real actors and even confirmed that the next manga movie, One Piece Red, the which will revolve around the redhead, will arrive in Spain and with dubbing in Catalan. News and more news by One Piece 25th Anniversarywhose chapter 1054 arrives this Sunday, July 24 at Manga Plus.
