The manga One Piece will be paused for a month. This was announced by Eiichiro Oda, the author himself, via the work's official Twitter account. The series will return in the 34th issue of the magazine on July 25th. Shueisha released the 27th issue of the magazine on Monday, which means the manga has two more chapters before the hiatus begins.

As Eiichiro Oda explained in a statement, after listening to recommendations from those around him, he has decided to take this break because he is tied to the manga's 25th anniversary celebration in July, the release of the One Piece film RED on August 6 and his plans to oversee filming for the Netflix-produced live-action series has a busy summer ahead of him. However, what caused the greatest excitement among fans is the fact that the mangaka revealed in his message that this hiatus will also serve to prepare for the ending of One Piece.

Weekly Shonen Jump hinted in August 2020 that One Piece "is heading towards the upcoming final saga". The manga is currently nearing the finale of the Wano Country Arc.
