‘One Piece’ chapter 980 release date and previous chapter recap

One Piece chapter 980 won’t be around until the last week of the month. But spoilers for the next chapter are here.

One Piece manga chapters are usually released weekly. But due to the global health crisis, the release schedule has been changed.

Creator Eiichiro Oda and “Weekly Shōnen Jump” magazine have decided to release new chapters of the manga series bi-monthly or twice a month.

One Piece isn’t the only title that has been affected by the pandemic. Other manga comic series are also in the same release schedule.

Chapter 979 was already released last May 10. This means that the succeeding chapter is set to arrive on Sunday, May 24.

Chapter 979 recap

Before heading into the spoilers, here’s a quick recap of the events from the last chapter titled “Family Problem.”

Kaido and Orochi are being pursued for attack by the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Sumarai Alliance. Kanjuro failed to warn them due to his lack of information with Onigashima’s complex layout.
