One Piece author Oda talks about when the manga will end, tells how the ending will be, and promises the greatest battle ever in One Piece history. Eiichiro Oda plans to end One Piece in three years. On the occasion of the manga’s 25th anniversary the author said in an interview:
“I have answered this question so many times already I have lost credibility, so I don’t think I should answer. I shouldn’t really say this out loud, because so far I have been pretty off, but as of now it’s a three-year end goal.”
It’s true that Oda said that Wano would start in 2017 and ended up starting until 2019. He also promised once that Shanks would make “his big move” at the end of 2023 and did not do so until this very week, already in the middle of 2023. But above all, the differences are not that wide. It might happen that his three years will turn into five, but the end already seems near and unavoidable.
Back in 2002, Oda talked about 20 years (until 2023). In 2014 he approximated that One Piece would last 10 more years (until 2024). And in 2020 he guessed about 4 or 5 years to go (again, 2024 or 2025). The seems quite clear, however, you never really know since there is so much story left to tell and the characters keep moving and evolving. “We are all navigators,” Oda said jokingly.
Talking about the ending, the author has repeated once again that he is very clear about it. He admits that some particular aspects of it have been changing, but in his head, he knows perfectly well how he will draw the final chapter of One Piece. Along with that he also made it clear that the series will end when it is known what One Piece is.
This is important information, as many theories suggested that Luffy would come at Laugh Tale and find the One Piece before the ending. These suppositions, with millions of followers, were based on the fact that the great mystery of the Void Century would be discovered there and that it would set off the final battle against the Marines. However, if it happens, all that will come before.
The One Piece Author commented that:
“Things are heating up in the Wano Country right now, but if Luffy can set sail from here safely, there will be developments on a global scale, a thrilling story the likes of which no one has ever read before, I’ll draw the ‘greatest battle ever in OP history, it will be exciting! In other words, I made such a statement so readers could be mentally prepared to understand that even a story as long as this one is properly heading towards its end. That said, for now just take your time and enjoy Wano while it’s hot. I’ll be drawing with all of my strength!”
