One Piece Weekly Schedule for 2020

As we did a year ago, we decided to create a calendar with the One Piece chapter release dates and breaks for 2020. The only official dates available at this time are the Weekly Shōnen Jump release until September, so the magazine’s breaks until the end of the year are speculative, and based on previous years.

One Piece Chapter Release Schedule for 2020

Eiichiro Oda’s breaks are all speculated, and based also on previous years, with the last year being more relevant. The author maintained a consistent pattern of pausing every four chapters for a few years, but it seems that by 2019 he has been taking days off more often. Now Oda currently pauses on average one week for every three chapters, which may vary at times when the Weekly Shōnen Jump is not released. This table will be updated whenever there is new official information!

Due to the global COVID-19 situation, in the last few weeks there has been a break for each chapter released, and the scenario is apparently going to hold on for a while longer, so our calendar has been adapted to this situation. Keep in mind that this schedule is speculative and is subject to change whenever new official information appears!

    To all haters who say he doesn’t release enough chapters, he said he devoted 75% of his work time just thinking up the story. He spends 10 hours per day working and I don’t know if you saw the quality of the drawings but even with 2 helpers, that means he spends a minimum of 12h30 per week (excluding week ends) drawing and 37h30 just siting at his desk racking his brains to make One Piece the best story ever. If you think working 50 hours a week is easy with a HUGE amount of pressure from the millions of fans, then you obviously can’t think of anything more but your egocentric person. Have respect for Oda who deserves everything for his 20 years of work and devotion just to make us able to follow Luffy’s adventure.

    ppl saying he needs a break once in awhile but if you convert all his weeks off its 4 months (16 weeks in total if nothing changes) ….. idk what kind of job you can get 4 months off a year.
    If it was like once a month i understand just to rebuild his stamina and get his rest but this is just ……

    1. Robin

      It´s not like he takes a week off, he just doesn´t publish that week, so he can work at slower pace and we get more quality chapters…Also, have you seen a work schedule of a mangaka? Normal people work 40 hours a week…Mangakas don´t work 40 hours a week, sleep included, so shut up.

      I dont think you understand his actual schedule. The breaks isnt him just not working he just needs more time. If you watched the interview where they talk about his schedule you’ll see how devoted he is. They said on a regular work week he wakes up at 5 am and goes to bed at 2 am

    Why should we? The guy makes dosens of bills on the Manga, hence should treat his readers with due respect. Sick/ill or not, writing Mangas is not a devastating task (I believe it is comparable to a casual office-type employment). New chapters have not been released for two weeks recently, and afterthat time he realases one chap, yet takes another one week break afterwards? That gives us one chapter in four weeks period (I might say that one chapter in a month then). Shingeki no Kyojin is released on a monthly basis, nevertheless they release over 40 pages at once!
    Let’s make things clear: Oda does not respect One Piece’s fans. Thats the truth. In such case he should end the whole series on the Wano chapter, and take a life-long rest.

    1. Malkarossa

      Please. Keep an eye on your one piece addiction and get a heart. That guy is a human, there’s a covid 19 pandemy at this time, and he dedicated 20 f*****g years for this masterpiece, with blood, sweat and tears. He deserve to choose his own schedule, you’ve got nothing to say.

      Oda deserves the break more than anybody, he already I’ll and he have work his ass off without sleeping for us the reader and for the last few week oda didn’t take a break he was working on the magazine

    4. Nevofed

      You are the kind of fan I despise the most. Enjoy what you have you f*****g pig, Oda is a human being and he has been nothing short of amazing for the last 20 years, he deserves to have a lot of breaks, but we do not deserve him, espicially you

    5. ReideenEagle

      You sir are correct, at most he could draw 2 pages a day and get back to whatever it is that he’s doing, cancel all interviews and unnecessary stuff, hire more employees if necessary, and he’d still financially stable.
      Why have personal breaks if he can rest with the magazine anyways?
