A piece began to appear in 1997, and has now surpassed 1,000 chapters. There’s a lot for fans to celebrate! But according to the site My Jitsusome manga readers in Japan aren’t happy with the way things are going.

My Jitsu reports that a segment of fans in Japan are not only annoyed by the pace of the current Land of the Wa Arc, which started in 2018, but also by the manga on hiatus. That last complaint is pretty silly, if not selfish, to be honest, considering how hard manga creator Eiichiro Oda worked and for how long. The guy is not a machine. He needs time to recharge and do things like sleep!

Below, via My JitsuHere are some recent complaints from Japanese readers:

A piece taking a break is useless.

A piece lately took a break a bunch. Also, the development of the story was botched.

“The most recent Shounen jump was quite interesting. Corn A pieceyou take too much free time.

A piece takes too many breaks. It’s like every other week.

“Don’t take the week off because the story isn’t going well!”

As noted on My Jitsu, the problem could be related to the rhythm of the Wano Country arc, which would drag and lose the interest of the fans. This, in turn, impacts the anime and it becomes more difficult to gain new readers.

Meanwhile, in recent years, A piece has been exceeded by manga like demon slayer and Jujutsu Kaisen. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still an incredibly successful and popular manga.

It all seems rather stressful and relentless for Oda! A piece has had an impressive career, and it is not finished yet. There are still adventures to be had.

If you have never read A pieceto verify this look at 1,025 chapters manga by Kotakuown Isaiah Colbert.
