Hopefully, he'll make a perfect recovery.
Based on the quote, however, it seems like there still should be a chapter out this week, or am I misunderstanding it?
Hope Kureha will help Oda with the cure, get well Oda-sama!
Dammit... no OP this week. On another note, I hope you get well soon and doesn't catch serious illness like this again Oda-sensei. Please rest as much as you can, it's not funny if you get ill again just to answer your reader expectation. Body and family is our most important assets. Good luck!!!
This man wakes up at 5am, sleeps at 2am without ever stepping out of his house throughout the week.
3 hours of sleep a single freaking day. He needs to throw his desk out of his windows, take a month break, two months, three months
heck even a year. He doesn't deserve an illness like this and really deserves a lot more, like a really long break to rest.
Pull a rubber band too long and it'll snap.
Wouldn't say a year but I totally agree with you.
The author of HunterxHunter takes frequent breaks and gives chapters only whenever he can.
Oda should take it easy doing a chapter every now and then, OR just do a bunch cover story pages and not focus on a big story if it makes him too ill.
Knowing his illness, I'd happily accept 4-5 per week of those One Page story page things he does regarding all the characters we've seen throughout the series
Oda's schedule is insane, and he's been doing this for more than a decade now. I heard that the four week break before the time skip was actually only a two week vacation with the other two week spent on working.
He definitely deserves a long break after all the effort he puts into producing a chapter each week, and I don't think fans would fault him if he took the hiatus. It wasn't too long ago either that he missed a week due to an illness so he really needs time to fully recover.
i hope hes ok , i am already having one-piece withdrawals
I hope that Oda gets through this. I would hate it if something happened to him and the series.
I added the message from Oda.
For his words in the message you can see that the man is still thinking on working... Not only his body and his mind need a break, but mainly his will.
Just take it easy Oda-san, rest and maybe take a 1-2 month break and just relax, you have earned it.
From the sounds of it, Oda's will is a lot like Luffy's.
SENSEI, get well soon!
