Ok, as I write this, it is 11:50pm CST, and I'm bored, so I say it's Wednesday. Due to a miscalculation on my part, I thought the manga would be out this week. Oops. There's still another week which means I get to write another blog. The hardest part of this blog had to be coming up with a title to match the theme of my previous three blogs. I was only expecting to write three and metaphorically stop right before the New World (which I thought would have been the perfect ending). So "Almost to Raftel" is the best I can do on shortish notice. Anyway, as revealed on YazzyDream's blog (this blog plug makes us even), there is a lot of new information on there including what Oda is calling the new arc, as well as when the next databook comes out, and a link to a fun interview with some of the Seiyus. Now, if you thought I was excited last week, just you wait, I am bouncing off the walls right now. Again, those first two weeks were Paradise. So, tell me how you feel after reading this blog, and then tell me how you feel after reading all the new information and the interviews. Since I have never had to wait through a hiatus, I didn't know that I would have to wait an extra week, which is why the excitement is almost uncontrollable. So, sticking with the metaphor, I see Raftel on the horizon! One Piece (or at the very least the Ryo Poneglyph) is within a distance that is visible by an eighteenth century style telescope! THERE IS JUST ONE MORE WEEK LEFT! Share with me your excitement! I should stop here or else I am just going to start rambling and once I start it's hard for me to stop.

In case you missed my first three blogs, here they are:

One Week in, How is Everyone Coping?

Halfway There, I Can See the Red Line!

Three Weeks in: Standing Before the Dawn of the New World

Special thanks to YazzyDream for the new information.
