Volume 88 is scheduled to be released on March 2, 2018 !
so does that imply a longer tankobon w/ more chapters or is there just a month delay for the release, which has been on average 3 months each ?
fuck im not supposed to be on this forum now SMH....
thanks for the info, Scotch !
vol 88 will start from ch 880. I estimated it's ch 880 - 889/890.
I hope Pound appear in the cover.
880 Zero Escape
881 Wave Room
882 Beyond The Yonkou's Expectations
885 It's Brulee
886 Way of Life
887 Somewhere, Someone is Wishing for Your Happiness
Not certain, but there's two SJ breaks December (plus probably some Oda breaks) so that might put it back a bit.
And there's always a chance that Oda wants the volume to have another chapter in it, he's done it before.
so this mean only 3 volumes will be released next year for one piece
i think kingdom will be the number 1 selling manga in 2018
lol do u kno how much One Piece outsells everyone ???
less volume = less sells
and the last one piece volume barely reached 2 millions sold after 3 weeks
But One Piece sold 11.5 million copies this year. Take out 3 million copies for the one less volume it still sells over 8 million copies which is still 2 million copies ahead of Kingdom and 1.5 million copies ahead of Attack on Titan. Of course I haven't taken into account any growth in Kingdom sales since I don't know much about it but for there to be a change in rankings, Kingdom would have to have a brilliant year and One Piece would have to have one less volume and a terrible year (which I can't see happening considering what's about to happen in the story).
luffy vs kata is definitely going to be on the cover
The Strawhats Allies in a mirror position to the last volume cover is definitely the cover.
So this will probably have a Katakuri-centric cover page right? He was the main focus of the start after all and hopefully will get more focus in the next four chapters ^^
''barely reached 2 million after 3 weeks''
You make it sound like it's a small number, lol.
The cover should be Pound surrounded in a holy light, but instead it will most likely consist of a lineup of the allied forces in order to parallel with last volume's cover...
Is going to be SHs + allies, but i'm only interested in Luffy and Sanji, i don't care about the rest lmao
Thanks for the info
I hope for a Katakuri vs Luffy cover
Sanji and the other cooks + rampaging Linlin and peros maybe
SHs already got their own covers .. Luffy and Bege and the others ...
A Luffy vs Katakuri cover ist more likely!
They just did that in volume 85 so I highly doubt it will be done again.
No they didn't. The Volume 85 had the SH's and allies, yes, but it was not a mirror image of 87. And was two volumes prior anyway. Take a look at Volumes 21, 22, 42, 43, 77 and 78 and you'll see that 87 and 88 will fit that pattern. There isn't a debate to be had over what this volume cover will be, it'll be the Strawhats and allies in the same positions as the BM Pirates were on the 87 cover.
Woah. Thanks for the info.
Already looking forward to the cover and background color.
But is there a reason why it's not coming out on February like it usually does every year @ScotchImformer ? If this is confirmed, then it means that we have at least 12 chapters for the Volume 88 tankobon, which rarely happens tbh...
