Good news and bad news for fans of One Piece today. First, the bad: Author Eiichiro Oda came down with a sudden illness recently, causing the series to miss a week in the pages of Shonen Jump, which is pretty rare for One Piece. As a result, it won’t be in next week’s issue.
As for the good news, Eiichiro Oda is already apparently feeling much better. He’s said to be recovered and back on his feet, so look for One Piece to return in this year’s 15th issue of Jump, which hits stands in Japan on March 9.
Due to a sudden illness of its author, ONE PIECE story will be temporarly interrupted for Weekly Shonen Jump #14 (in stores from march 2nd).
The author has now fully recovered, and the story will continue from Jump #15 onwards.
Thank you for your understanding.
