One Piece chapter 1041 Was delayed, but thankfully a new release date has now been confirmed online by Viz Media and Manga Plus.
Sunday’s have been bliss for anime and manga fans around the world for the past several months. Not only have we been getting new episodes of Attack on Titan and Demon Slayer, but also the latest chapters of My Hero Academia and One Piece each Sunday.
However, both the Demon Slayer anime and the One Piece manga will be notably absent from your weekend schedule this week. Specifically for the One Piece manga, chapter 1041 has been postponed, but thankfully a new release date has now been confirmed online.

One Piece will be missing this week
Unfortunately, the One Piece manga will be notably absent in this week’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in Japan.
This means that the international release via Viz Media and Manga Plus will also be postponed.
A reason for the delay was not announced, but the team makes a habit of taking regular breaks in order to maintain both the series’ quality and the mental health of the production team.
The good news is that the delay won’t be a long one, so when will chapter 1041 release online in English?
