Courtesy of @sandman He wants to take a break to go travelling to visit World heritage sites? Wow anyway lots of interesting info, thanks to Sandman ! EDIT: woops sorry didn't see it was already posted on @Mr. Kishido's thread by Vizard. Merge or delete please. ADDED: Additional summary courtesy of Sandman: shit... ONE PIECE has more characters than before. He has to cram much information into one chapter to move forward with the story. Oda says he would be able to draw really impressive fight scenes only if he could keep drawing the fight scene for 2 chapters in a row. He feels ONE PIECE can now spend only 1 chapter at most on a fight scene. The off-panelling was deliberate...sigh. But it looks like fights are gonna get a bit of a hit now. Guess the days of amazing multi-chapter fights are pretty much over.
