According to information on the official MANGA Plus website, One Piece manga will be on hiatus this week, meaning that chapter 1026 will not be released on September 19. Instead, it will launch next week, September 26. Oda has released 4 great chapters in a row since August 22nd, it seems the author deserves more rest in the meantime.
The events of One Piece to celebrate the release of 100th volume and 1000th episode anime in a row are being planned, the author has a lot of things to keep track lately. So taking a break every few weeks seems like the best course of action for the author to relax in preparation for upcoming One Piece events and chapters.
Meanwhile, the anime is getting closer and closer to the 1000 milestone. Yamato debuted in the anime in a very strong way, and the episode ended with a dramatic change after Yamato remembered about Ace.
Being said, the next One Piece chapter will release after the hiatus, which means September 26. Yamato and Luffy are ready to face Kaido again, and there’s still a lot going on!
