One Piece’s author, Eiichiro Oda, had been hospitalized due peritonsillar abscess, a complication of tonsillitis. Due to this sickness, One Piece will be absent from Shonen Jump in the next two weeks- issue 26(5/27) and issue 27 (6/3).
It seems like Oda Sensei has been sick a lot these days, and I’m hoping a good rest will make things better. Let’s hope him a speedy recovery, and I would rather have no One Piece for a few weeks then no One Piece forever.
Take care of your body, Oda Sensei. Your health is more important than anything.
