Eiichiro Oda reveals the year of the end of the cult manga

Whereas One Piece celebrates its twenty-fifth anniversary this year, its creator, Eiichiro Oda, has just revealed the year in which the cult manga will end.

Eiichiro Oda finally opens up

Often considered (rightly) as the most important shonen of the last twenty years, One Piece can count on a huge community of fans, who look forward to the next chapter in the adventures of Luffy and his friends every week. For twenty-five years, we have all been captivated by the imagination, inventiveness and humor of Eiichiro Oda, who always manages to surprise us.

A few weeks ago, the mangaka had announced a one-month break in the publication of One Pieceso that he can prepare the final arc of the manga. An announcement that caused a stir, with fans wondering when the conclusion of their favorite manga would take place. It is true that for several years now, Eiichiro Oda suffers from fragile health, due to his absolutely inhuman work rhythm. We also recently wrote an article on these mangaka exhausted by the pace of work imposed on them.

Whereas One Piece just resumed in the Weekly Shōnen Jump with Chapter 1054, Eiichiro Oda gave himself in a river interview alongside the equally legendary Gōshō Aoyama, the father of Detective Conan (101 volumes published, against 102 for One Piece). In particular, he indicates that he wants finish your manga in three years. Thereby, One Piece would end in 2025. To those who feared that Eiichiro Oda would give a hasty end to his manga, we remind you that in 2019, Oda announced that he wanted to end One Piece over the following five years, i.e. in 2024.

As for knowing how many narrative arcs are left, we recall that the last story arc, Wano Kuni, stretched from July 2018 to June 2022, i.e. four years ; as for the Big Mom arc, it ran from May 2016 to July 2018. We can therefore hope for either a gigantic arc that would last three years, or a large arc, divided into two small arcs of one year and a half each. If we don’t know much about this final narrative arc, Eiichiro Oda promises”the greatest battle in history.

Faced with this announcement, we can’t wait to see what Eiichiro Oda has in store for us in the future.
