One Piece Chapter 979 Delayed, New One Piece 979 Release Date Revealed

Following the release of the latest chapter of One Piece manga, it seems that fans will have to wait for another week to get the newest chapter. As announced, One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda and his team will be taking a one-week break.

It’s usual for One Piece fans to see the manga taking a break, but it’s unusual for the manga to be put on hiatus after delaying the release last week. Well, it’s actually not surprising since the One Piece chapter 978 was delayed due to the virus outbreak in Japan. But when will the new manga chapter be released?

Since there is no new manga chapter this week, the author has set the release of chapter 979 a week later. Meaning, the upcoming One Piece Chapter 979 will be released on May 10, 2020.

Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece is not the only one being delayed this time. My Hero Academia, Kimetsu no Yaiba and other popular manga are also being delayed and will also return along with the release of One Piece manga.
