Hey guys! Recently, we have received a message from Oda. He mentioned that Shanks will make his move. Thanks to EtenBoby, we had the rough translation of the message. Thus, I will share them with you in this post. You can check them out below.

To the people watching Jump Festa, hello!! It really has been a tough year, I believe there’re many people strongly affected by the corona virus.

I want to give a round of applause to the many workers in the industry who are still bringing spirit to everyone in a wild situation such as now, that’s how this year has been.

On Jump, Demon Slayer was amazing. It saved many people emotionally and brought them joy, really impressive. That’s how manga should be, I was somehow moved as well!

Now, let’s talk about One Piece stage in Jump Festa. One Piece is soon reaching Chapter 1000!! By the time this message is read, I have already finished Chapter 1000 and be on my way to meet the cast…or that’s what would’ve happened!

Now I can’t go, what a shame…Old men and women on the stage. Wait… no, Old men and young ladies on the stage, are you doing well? Anyway even though I can’t go, I still finished Chapter 1000! Is it good?

Chapter 1000 will be on the first issue next year!! What a timing! Please look forward to it!

There are all kinds of projects going on alongside the celebration of Chapter 1000, they’ll warm up the New Year!

Then in 2021 we’ll have another special year with volume 100!

About the manga story itself, as new info will that a people move a bit, the man with red hair…!!

As usual the story is pushing towards its end! Please take your time and enjoy next year as well!
