The Egghead arc has us staring at the calendar every day.

One Piece is the most popular manga series in history. First launching in 1997, the series has been delighting fans for years, has sold 516 million copies, and is still popular today. The series has already surpassed its 1000th chapter and episode, a massive milestone for any manga or anime franchise.

On top of this, the manga has launched a giant franchise that features popular anime, a great live-action adaptation, several beloved films, and many well-reviewed video games. The original manga remains incredibly popular and the question remains: when does more One Piece come out? Here’s everything you need to know about the manga’s release schedule. 

How is One Piece released? 

One Piece is released via the manga magazine Weekly Shōnen JumpThe manga is considered a weekly title, so in theory, a new chapter is published in the magazine every week. Then, these chapters are collected into volumes which are then sold individually in stores.

However, while it is a weekly manga series, the manga doesn’t always release weekly. Eiichiro Oda, the creator of One Piece, usually takes a one-week break every two weeks, giving him time to rest or handle other creative endeavors. Oda will also occasionally take longer breaks to plan upcoming One Piece arcs or work on other projects, like when he worked on the live-action series. Miraculously, he even took a vacation one time, many moons ago.

However, these breaks are usually announced in advance, making it easy to schedule your reading. You can follow the One Piece Twitter account or check Viz Media’s One Piece page to be informed of any changes. 

When does Weekly Shōnen Jump come out? 

In Japan, Weekly Shōnen Jump arrives on store shelves every Monday. Viz Media updates its app and website with the newest chapters on Sundays at around 10:00 a.m. Eastern. So American readers get the chapters at around midnight on Monday, Japan time. 

The schedule for the rest of 2023

The upcoming chapters are normally released at 8 a.m. Pacific Time or 11 a.m. Eastern Time, and the current One Piece schedule for the rest of 2023 is: 

  • October 30 – Chapter 1096
  • November 6 – Chapter 1097
  • November 13 – No Chapter [Oda is on a break]
  • November 20 – Chapter 1098
  • November 27 – Chapter 1099
  • December 4 – No Chapter [Oda is on a break]
  • December 11 – Chapter 1100
  • December 18 – Chapter 1101
  • December 25 – No Chapter [Oda is on a break]

Remember the Japanese schedule falls a week behind the Weekly Shonen Jump issue here in the West, so be aware that fan translations arrive the week before. Run away from spoilers like the plague!
