Eiichiro Oda Reveals How To Identify The Final Arc Of The Series

One Piece is not only a manga or an anime, it has grown way more than that due to its ever expanding community and fandom to the extent that the creator himself finds trouble in keeping track of everything himself.

However, one thing that Oda is consistent about from the start is how the series is going to end, to the very last manga panel. In the year 1998, he revealed how one can know One Piece has entered its final saga, after this one particular character starts appearing frequently in the manga, and it is not Luffy.

This might not come to as a shock to many, but the character Oda was talking about was none other than Shanks, member of the four emperors of the sea and the leader of the Red Hair Pirates.

Shanks From One Piece

The release of One Piece: Red animated film last year has put many to the thought if the end is near as the movie was focused around on the character of Shanks and her daughter. However, many argue that the movie was about his daughter instead and the screen time he got was minor and not enough to consider an entrance to the final arc.
