The official Twitter account for One Piece released a poster drawn by Eiichiro Oda on June 8, announcing its final arc. The poster has “To The Final Chapter” written on it.
The poster also contains various panels featuring the members of the straw hat pirates and others.
Recently, One Piece Twitter announced a month long hiatus and posted a handwritten note by the author of One Piece saying that the manga will enter its final stage post hiatus.
Oda previously said in an interview in August 2020 that he plans to end the story in four or five years.
Commemorating the release of the 100th compiled book volume of the manga, a newspaper advertisement revealed a photo of Oda drawing at his workspace with the words, “The story is in the final stage. (物語 は 終盤 で す)” back in September 2021.
