I know, One Piece manga chapter 987 hasn’t even dropped yet, with only a couple of leaked pages circulating online for the upcoming manga chapter. However, that hasn’t stopped there being some news for the next instalment of One Piece and that includes the release and, as well as spoilers for the upcoming chapter.
According to reports on both the One Piece sub-Reddit and Twitter, One Piece manga chapter 988 will have a one week delay, which I know, isn’t too bad but it’s a bit annoying considering Luffy will be officially declaring the war has begun in the previous chapter that will be released in a couple of days. Early leaked un-official English translations of the leaked manga pages have been revealed and showcase this fact.
Why is there a one week delay? Well, it’s because there is now Jump chapter at all next week. That means no One Piece, Dr Stone or My Hero Academia as well. As a result, One Piece manga chapter 988 will be officially released on the 20th of August 2020. Furthermore, the chapter will be highly sought for and it’s not only because of the war beginning, but it’s also because of a transformation that we have all been waiting a very long time for.
In chapter 987 of One Piece, we will see that it’s a full moon and you know what a full moon does to Minks? It turns them into powerful beasts and guess who Luffy has on his side, Nekomamushi, one of the strongest Minks that we know of. Yes, this means that in One Piece chapter 988 we will see Nekomamushi unleash his hidden powers and transform.
