Although Whole Cake Island had finally ended there will be no new chapter this week for One Piece and instead we'll have to wait an extra week for the next arc's first chapter to come out. The reason behind this which I confirmed on page 254 on Viz's English release for the April 23rd volume has to do with the Golden Week holidays in Japan (because this affects the whole magazine, it can only be confirmed at the end of the WSJ volume instead of the end of each chapter which makes it harder to detect this).
Though I am disappointed to have to wait an extra week, at least for me it makes it easier for me due to a dental-related operation so I'll be happy when the end of next week rolls around to get the information from the next chapter.Read more >
Within the last 2 days it has been confirmed that all the One Piece episodes on Hulu.com are being set to expire. The reason is due to Hulu's contract with Toei Animation expiring and besides One Piece, other titles that are seen within the source link will also be expiring as the license will expire on April 28th (such as Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball GT).
Anyone who uses official streaming to watch the new episodes on Funimation's website or Cruchyroll, but for me I decided to go with Funimation since I can also rewatch other Funimation titles that also expired on Hulu.
Just wanted to make this announcement and explain the reason why this is happening.

Confirmed through Viz's Weekly Shōnen Jump that Chapter 862 will be postponed this week (which is posted as "One Piece will be off next week") so the main part of the wedding event won't occur until the following week.
For something as big as this for the storyline I decided to be observant and check the last page of the chapter figuring that Oda might take a one-week break, which as it turns out was indeed true. Though disappointed, I at least was mentally prepared for this and will be happy to hear what happens in over a week from now.Read more >
