One Piece Chapter 1087 Gets Delayed As Eiichiro Oda Undergoes Eye Surgery

One Piece‘s official Twitter account announced on June 6, 2023, that the manga will be on hiatus as Eiichiro Oda will be undergoing an eye surgery.

The author is suffering severe astigmatism, which is causing everything to appear blurry to him.

Due to this the manga will be taking a break for a month. It will miss four issues of Weekly Shonen Jump (29, 30, 31, 32), postponing the release of One Piece chapter 1087 to July 18, 2023.

However, chapter 1086 will be released on June 11, 2023, (June 12 in Japan) as planned in issue #28.

Eiichiro Oda released a statement regarding the hiatus, a rough translation of which is given below:

I apologize!! I will be taking a break for four issues!! (Jump issues 29, 30, 31, and 32)

Well, regarding the final chapters of ONEPIECE, I want to let you know that I really need to undergo surgery. I will be having a surgery to shoot beams from my eyes!!

I know it may seem like a joke, but I’m telling you because I don’t want to worry you unnecessarily. Recently, I’ve been suffering from severe astigmatism.

You see, things appear blurry to me.

This has been causing difficulties in my work, so I’ve been discussing it with the editor-in-chief since last year. They told me to go ahead and have the surgery!

I’ll work on improving my vision and come back! Please bear with me for a little while!
