Jump Festa ’24 unveiled a special message from Eiichiro Oda, the creator of One Piece, hinting at the future of the Straw Hat Pirates.

Oda began his message by expressing his commitment to continuing his hard work on the manga, as well as addressed the challenging events many characters had faced in the series.

He then hinted at a destination where Luffy and his crew may be headed next, provided the crew can escape the Egghead island. He simply called the new destination as ‘That’ Island. However, Oda admitted to considering alternative routes but hinted that he might not be able to deter Luffy from ‘That’ route.

The hype didn’t end there, as Oda also disclosed a long-anticipated battle between two undisclosed characters, suggesting that the “outcome may lead to unexpected results”.

The full message can be read below:

I’ll keep working hard on the manga as well, but this past year, many characters have faced many events.
truly a terrifying world!

If Luffy and the others can leave Egghead safely… they should be going to ‘that’ island. I also considered not taking that route, but I may not be able to stop Luffy. And finally, at last it’ll happen. The battle between ‘that’ character and ‘that’ character may lead to unexpected results!!

Onward! To next year, alongside the 25th anniversary of the one piece anime!! I’ll be in your care once again!!

This has ignited speculation among the fandom on the next destination and the identities of the characters. Many fans immediately pointed to Elbaf, a long-anticipated destination that has been briefly shown and foreshadowed since the Enies Lobby arc, with a showdown between either Luffy and Shanks or Shanks and Blackbeard.

Some suggest that Luffy’s desire to save Garp, potentially learning about his fate after leaving Egghead, might lead the crew to Hachinosu instead.
