The One Piece Manga's Release Schedule

The One Piece manga is released weekly, albeit with periodic breaks. It is a key part of the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine and very rarely takes more than one week out unless pre-planned.

One Piece is categorised as a weekly series by Viz Media. In the vast majority of circumstances, you’ll find a new chapter to read every week at a consistent day and time.

As the series has been running for so long, there’s something of a pattern where Eiichiro Oda will get at least one week off each month.

There are also some circumstances where Eiichiro Oda will take a longer break. One such example was in June 2022, when a month-long hiatus was announced for Oda to work on other projects, such as One Piece Film: Red.

The best way to keep up with the next One Piece chapter’s official release is on Viz Media’s One Piece page. You can also follow One Piece’s official Twitter account.

The One Piece manga is commonly released on Sundays, in line with its physical release in Japan.

One Piece is initially published in Weekly Shonen Jump. The popular magazine is released weekly every Monday.

The online version of Weekly Shonen Jump’s chapters is usually available from midnight on Monday in Japan. In regions such as North America and Europe, that translates to in the morning or afternoon on Sunday.

The release date is designed to minimise spoilers and enable fans across the world to enjoy the series. However, there are usually spoilers for manga chapters available a few days before the official release.

One Piece is published in Japan in Weekly Shonen Jump, where it has appeared since its first chapter way back in 1997.

Weekly Shonen Jump is one of the most popular and recognisable magazines in Japanese manga. It is produced weekly and contains many of the most popular manga titles, including Jujutsu Kaisen and My Hero Academia.

Weekly Shonen Jump has also spawned a collection of spin-off services. One of the most notable is Shonen Jump+, an online service that hosts popular titles such as Spy x Family and Chainsaw Man.

Weekly Shonen Jump and its spin-offs are managed by Shueisha. The Japanese publisher Shueisha also co-owns Viz Media, which is largely responsible for the international distribution of Jump content.

Viz Media offers physical copies of many One Piece manga volumes. However, for the latest One Piece chapters, the best place to look is their online Shonen Jump service.
