Eiichiro Oda’s Manga One Piece Is “Headed Toward The Upcoming Final Arc.” According To Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine
Weekly Shonen Jump Teases The End Of One Piece Is Near.
The long-running masterpiece created by Eiichiro Oda over twenty years ago is apparently nearing its end. One Piece is a Japanese manga series that has been serialized in the weekly shonen jump, the weekly manga owned by Shueisha, that is illustrated and written by Oda.
One Piece is the best selling manga series, having sold over 100 million copies and is still going strong. In an advertisement for the One Piece Magazine Volume 10, that’s set to release on the 4th of September, this year’s 35th issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump has teased that “One Piece is headed towards the final upcoming arc”. This advertisement released on Monday stated nothing else has left the fans absolutely confused because there still so many plot points that haven’t been addressed and so many mysteries that need to be explained.
Due to the introduction of newer characters, along with the past mysteries like the location of the final Rio Poneglyph, Story of Joyboy, The Island of the Giants, Elbaf, The Will of D, The Void Century, The story and position of Shanks, The Revolutionary Army, The Ancient Weapons, Rocks D Xebec and so much more. One of the major concerns of hardcore One Piece fans is that maybe the author is getting tired of writing the One Piece Story for 20 years and is just rushing to end it, although that’s highly unlikely. Another proposition is that The Kaido – Big Mom Alliance is the beginning of the end as it is quite visible to the readers that the mood of the story is now much heavier than when One Piece initially started.
The 10th volume is said to focus on rerunning the previous arcs to bring readers back up to speed. However, many fans are still pretty confident in Oda Sensei’s writing skills and thus feel like if he does decide to end the manga in the near future he’ll do it in a suiting manner.
Oda has also previously said in a home interview back in 2019, during the promotion of the movie OP Stampede that he’d like to end the manga in the next 5 years. Eiichiro Oda began as a Mangaka at the early age of 17 in 1992, when he received the 2nd place in the Tezuka Manga Awards for a one-shot called “Wanted!” and in the year 1997, he debuted as an independent Mangaka with his Manga in 1997 which was published in the Weekly Shonen Jump. Since then Oda has been completely dedicated and focused on the One Piece manga, which is still going strong with over 90 volumes released.
