One Piece manga fans are eagerly waiting for the release of Chapter 1026. Well, here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming chapter’s release schedule.

The previous One Piece chapter broke the internet when we saw Luffy and Momonosuke facing Kaido together. What made it more interesting is that both Momonosuke and Kaido were in their Dragon form.

Of course, the fight is still midway, so fans are eager to see how things will turn out for Luffy and Yamato in the next chapter. But sadly, you’ll have to wait a little longer to read Chapter 1026.

One Piece Chapter 1026 Delayed

One Piece manga usually goes on a break quite frequently to give Eiichiro Oda some time to rest. The last four manga chapters were released without any breaks, which was a surprise for the community.

However, the editorial department announced that manga would go on hiatus this week. They didn’t give any specific reason for the delay, so we can assume that it’s because the mangaka needs some time off.

New Release Date

Fortunately, we know exactly when the One Piece manga is coming back. Apparently, Chapter 1026 is scheduled to release next week on Sunday, September 26th, 2021.

Viz Media confirmed the above release date on its official website. So you don’t have to worry about Chapter 1026 getting delayed any further.

Release Time

One Piece Chapter 1026 will release at midnight JST (Japan Standard Time). However, Viz Media generally updates the platform with new chapters at 9 AM PDT (Pacific timing).

Of course, the release timing for the chapter may vary depending on your region. Anyway, here’s when you can expect it to come out in your time zone:

  • Pacific Time: 9:00 AM
  • Central Time: 11:00 AM
  • Eastern Time: 12:00 PM
  • British Time: 5:00 PM
  • European Time: 6:00 PM

Are There Any Spoilers for Chapter 1026?

The raw scans for the new chapters surface 2-3 days before the official release. So, you’d have to wait until next week to get some spoilers for the next chapter.

Nevertheless, it’s for sure that the chapter would continue the fight between Luffy and Kaido. Also, it’s unlikely that we’ll see the battle end this soon, so things might still get difficult for Luffy in Chapter 1026.
