One Piece Sets Sail On Its Final Saga Next Month

For readers of the One Piece manga, the longest arc in the series, which focuses on the remote land of Wano, is coming to an end in just a few short weeks. Eiichiro Oda, the creator of One Piece, has announced a brief hiatus for the manga to prepare for the start of its final saga, which begins July 24 with Chapter 1054.

In a message from Oda yesterday, the mangaka announced that the series’ hiatus will follow after Chapter 1053, which is scheduled for release on June 26. At that point, no new One Piece chapters would be available for an entire month, an almost unprecedented amount of time for the Piracy adventure, barring a similar gap when the series made a two-year time jump in history over a decade ago. After a translation from Library of Ohara On Twitter, Oda will not only use the break to rest, but says: “I want to fix the structure for the final saga so that I can streamline it as soon as possible.” One Piece is known for its massive world and intricate worldbuilding, so it makes sense that Oda would want to make sure the pieces for the story’s ending are in place to come together at some point in the future.

Just ahead of the One Piece manga’s return on July 24, a One Piece Day live stream was also announced. The series is celebrating its 25th anniversary and there’s a lot going on this summer with the franchise begging to be included in the celebrations. One Piece: Film RED is out in August, so stay tuned for updates on this theatrical release. Namco Bandai is also listed on the One Piece Day website, heavily hinting at another look at the upcoming RPG One Piece Odyssey. We don’t have to wait too long for our next look at this adventure, though, as a new trailer is dropping during tomorrow’s Summer Game Fest showcase.

“When will One Piece end?” You may be wondering. After well over 1000 manga chapters and anime episodes, the final saga is expected to last around five years. This schedule was set by Eiichiro Oda himself a few years ago while writing the now-ending Wano arc. As we find ourselves on the final leg of the journey with Monkey D. Luffy and his lovable pirate crew, there are plenty of stories to be told, and this final saga is expected to include at least a few more storylines.
