    Officially out in Japan on Tuesday instead of a Monday, so official English scanlation is out on Monday 10 August while the leaks/spoilers will probably come out a day later than usual.

    @T.D.A

    Aren't copies distributed early so stores would be stocked on time so they could sell the issues on Monday first thing, and this is how scans are leaked? It just happens that they have a holiday next monday(Mountain Day)which is a day off, making it so stores will hold on to the issues just a day longer than usual. It's just an extended weekend.

    I don't see a reason to why we'll have a one day delay with the spoilers, unless Jump has a rule that I'm unaware of that says how early a store is allowed to hold on to copies before putting them on sale that would drive them to distribute them one day later on a Friday? That'd be very specific.

    Yeah if shipment dates are unaffected, should get leaks at the normal time.

    Man, people are complaining now...I can't even imagine the torture waiting for us towards the end of the year. We should be in the last couple of chapters for the 900 series by the end of this year...but a second wave of Corona and/or holiday breaks are going to be BRUTAL. This is going to be the ultimate "so close, yet so far".

    Oh man totally forgot about a second outbreak.

    I did the math. With breaks included we should get 1000 by November.

    Depends if we're really lucky. Chapter 1000 should be something nuts.

    14 chapters=14 weeks +4 or 5 breaks=18 weeks=126 days=4~ months.

    Better to expect it around december before the end of the year

    We should hopefully get it before the slew of holiday breaks that come between mid december and early January

    Imagine we get a banger at chapter 1000 and then have to wait several weeks due to holidays.

    Best case scenario imo is that chapters 998-1000 (or thereabouts) are the intermission between acts 3 and 4, with chapter 1000 being a world-altering reveal before the multi-week break, then chapter 1001 picks up with the beginning of Wano act 4 in 2021 where the main fights finally begin. Granted that would require perfect timing on Oda's part lol.

    According to
    Last week's translation was surprisingly accurate. Now, the one before that...let's just forget that ever happened.
