Note: The guy ◆EizHb38XPU posts the release information of Weekly Shonen Jump every week.
It’s really a bad news.
And… One Piece II will start since Chapter 598?
Well, how about One Piece: The New World?
Edit: As I get more info and or confirmation I'll add it.
Aohige_AP thoughts on it: I just took a look at it, it does come from a reliable source. (who's never been wrong, even when the official pages were)
Random 2chan-ness: This is because chapter 597 is going to be a breaking point chapter, Oda has to plan the post-timeskip changes, such as how characters in a few years or plan out what the post-timeskip story will be. This is big for him that he needs a 4 week break. So chapter 597 either be do or die for a lot of questions/theories. Seemingly more pushing to the time-skip now.
#40 (06/09) :
Beelzebub (Lead Color)
Beelzebub Bangai-hen (Color)
One Piece (Absent) until #43
Credit for find: ichigonator
Thanks to Ichigonator's find it shows it's only 3 weeks we missing One Piece, Issue #40,#41,#42.
Last Edit: Sorry to say guys but it's been confirmed. Issue #43 will also have One Piece absent. The spoiler coming this week is for issue 39.
Aohige_AP: Yes, One Piece on break for 4 weeks comes from a reliable source. (小ネタ)
He's the same guy who gives information about what's taking breaks, and what titles are towards the end of the magazine, reflecting polls.
Specifically, Jump issue 40~43 will have no One Piece.
Just wanted to add 1 more piece of info for new fans that miss this; Last year around this time when Oda was writing One Piece: Strong World he said that movie will be the last adventure for Luffy being a 17 year old. The movie took place between them leaving Thriller Bark and entering Shaboady arc.
FINAL CONFIRMATION: BACK OF THIS WEEKS JUMP SHOWS NO ONE PIECE UPCOMING SEPTEMBER. ONE PIECE RETURNS ON ISSUE #44,SEPTEMBER 29
Picture Translation for One Piece's Part: Editor's note: One Piece will be on leave for four weeks. The next chapter will be in WJ issue 44.
Oda: With the end of your serialization, I wish you good luck Usuta-san!
.. And I'm gonna go have fun and play. Wooot!!
