One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda has confirmed that the manga’s end is near. He revealed the news through the 35th issue’s advertisement. He stated that the series is “headed toward the upcoming final saga.” Fans had the idea that the manga is approaching the end, but now it’s officially confirmed. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest news!
One Piece Manga: All about the series!
The manga series follows Monkey D. Luffy’s (aka Straw Hat) adventures. He dreams to become the Pirate King. Luffy wants to gain total freedom along with his crew of infamous One Piece pirates.
The series is very famous for its extensive world, lovable characters, and amazing fights. The manga holds the Guinness World Record for most copies of the same comic published by a single author.
The creator has officially announced that the manga is reaching the end. Moreover, Oda has explained that he plans to end the story over the next four or five years. This brings a sigh of relief for the fans. Oda further said that they have already decided on the ending.
An editor also confirmed that the ending is decided in advance. This suggests that Oda had the ending in mind for a long time. Additionally, this ending needed to be explained to multiple editors to bring it to justice.
When is the manga ending?
In 2019, Oda said that he will end the manga series in the upcoming 4-5 years. In 2018, he said that he has already wrapped up 80% of the series. Three September One Piece publications were delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The manga’s production may take slightly longer than forecast. It seems safe to say that the story itself is slowly nearing resolution. Oda further revealed that he himself will draw many of the manga’s remaining scenes. He suggested that the final saga will be one of the series’ best.
The manga’s huge fan base is going to be completely glued to it as it moves towards completion. According to Oda’s plan, we think that the manga will end around 2025-2026. Fans should also note that the anime is ending any time soon. There are no such revelations or signs.
