If you're a One Piece manga reader, we have some unfortunate news for you. It seems that the upcoming One Piece Chapter 1038 has been delayed by a week, and you'll have to wait a little longer to find out what happens next. Since things got even more interesting in the manga after the appearance of Zunesha in the previous chapter, it's no wonder that fans are growing impatient for the next one.
Fans who have been following the manga so far will remember that the fight between Zoro and King has come to a conclusion, along with Sanji defeating the Queen as well. With the battle now turned in Luffy's favor, One Piece Chapter 1037 focused on his fight against Kaidou, which is still ongoing, with the two of them now beginning to enjoy the battle.
The previous chapter also went into some detail about a legendary Devil Fruit that seemingly had not awakened in centuries; however, one Elder points out that the fruit had specifically been given a different kind of name, likely for the purpose of erasing it from history. Fans are now eagerly awaiting Chapter 1038 of One Piece. Read on to find out what we know about the delay in the release, the new release date and time, and more.
One Piece Chapter 1038 Delayed
One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda returned with a new chapter just last week after a one-week break. This was because The Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine, which also publishes other manga series like My Hero Academia, Black Clover, and more, was on a short break for the New Year.
However, this week's break seems limited to One Piece. This is because creator Eiichiro Oda has taken his usual leave from writing. This is understandable since writing a new story every week for one of the longest-running series of all time while still managing to keep the story relevant and interesting can be taxing. Fans can check out the new release date and time for One Piece Chapter 1038 below.
