Oh gawd, this is going to be agony. Eiichiro Oda is going on his very first haitus since One Piece started for four weeks after this week's chapter.
It's amazing he's gone on this long without ever having taken a break, so it's well deserved.
It's just going to end up killing me in the process. Haha. I really, really hope 597 isn't some ridiculous cliff hanger. I don't know if I could stand the pain.
Once again, that means after this week we won't be getting a new chapter until September 29.
