Volume 101 of the manga is now on shelves in Japan, giving fans a glimpse into the intense cover art for the release featuring the last members of the Straw Hats.

It will be a while before Volume 101 gets an official release outside of Japan, but at least fans can check out the cool cover images ahead of time. The big reveal, of course, is the full in-color look for Kaido’s Hybrid Beast Man form, and it’s a good indication of how intense it’s gotten on Onigashima in the manga since these particular chapters. The current series of the series is heading towards the pinnacle of this great war, so more intense things are on the way.
As Eiichiro Oda’s original manga series continues to make its way well beyond the confines of that 1000th chapter, fans are beginning to wonder what might come next after the battle for Wano. There’s a good idea of where with the upcoming One Piece Film: Red coming next year and teasing a major role for Red-Haired Shanks, but it certainly gives a preview of what else could be coming for the series in 2022.
