Two Weeks Countdown to One Piece’s Oda Eiichiro’s Return

Fans of the high profile manga, One Pirece, are quite used to the hiatus but this time around it’ll be a longer wait. Oda Eiichiro, the renowned creator of One Piece, has taken a break due to his health. Earlier this year, Oda had been hospitalized due to peritonsillar abscess, a complication of tonsillitis.

The series is set to resume by June 10th and counting down the days on the calendar, it’ll be a two week wait more. The official announcement was made on Shonen Jump’s website. As for One Piece, Shonen Jump issues will continue to ship by May 27 to June 3 without any action scenes from Monkey D Luffy.

While Japanese fans have June 10th to wait for, western shores will have a taste of Oda Eiichiro’s animation with the debut of One Piece on Cartoon Network. Monkey D Luffy and his gang are set to hit Toonami’s line-up. The show had already garnered a whopping 995,000 views. Hopefully, One Piece on Toonami is set to bring in more anime to the small-screen.
