    Due to the frequency of his breaks, do you guys think Oda would announce a long hiatus in the future??

    I mean he kinda needs it if its for health reasons right?

    If he needs it he'd ask for it like he did when he asked for that month long break before the time skip chapter

    Spoiler:



    But I'm pretty sure he's content with the 1 week breaks Jump gives him now. along with all the other holiday breaks so he wouldn't need a long hiatus anymore.

    I see. Well he could go on a once in a lifetime hiatus to rest his body so he can draw properly again i think. But not like 2yrs long hiatus like other mangakas do lol

    He should have taken an actual 2 year break for the timeskip. And he really should take a 3-4 month vacation in between major arcs. Also the anime should switch to seasonal releases instead of this horrible 1 episode = 1 chapter pacing.

    Oda is clearly burning out based on the declining quality of his longer story arcs i.e. WCI, and I don't understand why WSJ insists on having their mangaka deliver garbage work for short-term cash grabs instead of higher quality work for longer term profits.

    I fully expect the ending of One Piece to be rushed and horribly filled with plot holes just like Naruto. It's a damn shame.

    The arm does look a little flat but if you look at the whole cover page oda still draws zoro holding the other sword.

    Like i said people were just driven mad by the break :skully

    Good times though

    Nah. Current trend works since it has been normalized. Not sure Oda is ready for such a potential meltdown. That is if Japanese readers even give a fuck. Last I heard HxH still selling well regardless of the ridiculous breaks.

    JUst look at the last chapters for example. Oda managed to draw a woman that doesn’t look like a Nami clone but its ugly af. :giogio

    I don’t think a one week break would cut this.
