Eiichiro Oda really believes in it, or at least he promised ONE PIECE fans that. However, reaching Chapter 1000 by the end of the year is becoming increasingly difficult than expected, largely due to the sudden hiatus for health reasons. This is what the sensei must do to keep his promise.

Even if the countdown to 1000 has already begun, the chances that ONE PIECE will actually achieve the coveted goal by 2020 are getting smaller and smaller. With another break in the manga, the author can now not afford a week in order not to break his will. Currently the new break counts, ONE PIECE Chapter 995 will be published in mid-November15th, to be precise, on Manga Plus, a reality that pushes the end of the year to just 6 releases, not to mention the usual double release of Jump in December.

Eiichiro OdaTherefore, from the time of his return, he must publish 6 consecutive chapters in order to meet the deadlines he set for the 1000 chapter published on December 27th to be precise. However, if for any other reason he takes another hiatus, we won't see Chapter 1000 until 2021.

But will the Sensei really be able to publish 6 consecutive chapters? As usual, let us know your thoughts on this with a comment below. The next calendar of issues of the magazine is also available below.
