The serialization years of ONE PIECE They've already surpassed 25, and Eiichiro Oda's masterpiece is currently the longest-running title yet to be released on Weekly Shonen Jump. However, over the years, the workload has multiplied to such an extent that actual expenses have gradually decreased.

As announced by the publisher, No chapter of ONE PIECE will be released this Sunday due to Weekly Shonen Jump's hiatus, which will also impose a brief halt on all other manga appearing in the magazine. 2022 was an important year for Eiichiro Oda's series as he wrapped up the series Saga of Wano and similarly ushered in the final story arc.
