The official Twitter account for the One Piece manga has announced that its serialization in Weekly Shonen Jump will be suspended for a month (four issues) starting from its 30th issue to be released on June 27, 2022. The serialization will resume in its 34th issue, which will go on sale on July 25, 2022.

The statement writes the reason for the one month break is that Oda needs time to prepare for the 25th anniversary of the serialization and the release of the forthcoming new anime feature film One Piece Film Red. He also expresses a desire to go to Africa to supervise Netflix’s upcoming live-action series inspired by his manga. He says, “Four weeks! Give me time to steady my breathing!”

Back in 2019, Oda announced that the story of One Piece “will end in five years.” In this statement, he again says, “I want to reorganize the last arc so that I can close it as soon as possible.”
