Greetings and welcome to our One Piece Manga community thread! Here we discuss the latest chapters of One Piece as they release with spoiler tags only before scanlation release days (typically Thursdays). DO NOT POST SCANS IN THIS THREAD. Additionally, please support the official release by purchasing the volumes!
Well friends, we are entering what appears to be the final stretches of this incredible series. We have on our doorsteps the year of Sanji, where we will learn the secrets behind his family and his marriage. The Revolutionaries versus the Blackbeard Pirates, where we will (hopefully) witness the epic battle between villainy and "villainy". The Reverie, where we will discover just how big of an impact our merry crew has had on the world. And finally, the legendary treasure One Piece which lies on the final island Raftel where our heroes will land after obtaining the coordinates from the Four Road Poneglyphs.
Yet closer still, we have upcoming confrontations with the Four Emperors of the sea: Big Mom of Wholecake Island, Thousand-Beast Kaidou occupying Wano-kuni, Red-Haired Shanks, and Blackbeard.

Proclamation of a New Era
"Who will rule these waters!?
Is it one of the Four Emperors?
Or perhaps one of the sly Seven Warlords?
Or even still, one of those little shits belonging to the Worst Generation?
Could it be the armies of justice,
the Marines who rule this Sea?!
Yet the will of the people, the Revolutionary Army,
has its own share of beasts, enough to scare any good man!
And the clan of D., always smoldering amidst the embers of history,
who can tell when and where they will appear!?
Who will join hands with whom!?
Who will betray whom!?
Tell this to the Celestial Dragons perched atop their Ivory Towers in Mariejois!
"You shall be yanked from your golden thrones!!
It's been 25 years since Gol D. Roger first ruled the Grand Line!
His rival, Whitebeard, never ascended to that throne, he ruled kneeling before it!
In the eyes of the countless pirates in these waters,
there is only one, empty throne!
Do you know what that means?!
IT SHALL BEGIN! THE GREATEST WAR THIS WORLD OF PIRATES HAS EVER SEEN!"
Hold on to your butts and prepare your tears, because shit is going down.
Arc of 2016: Whole Cake Island (Current Arc)
Sanji's past catches up to him in 2016, the year of Sanji, where the leader of Germa-66, a para-military organization run by the royal Vinsmoke family, arranges to wed Sanji to the 35th daughter of Yonko Charlotte Linlin otherwise known as Big Mom. The leader of Germa, as it turns out, is none other than Sanji's own father, who has been hunting him since he left the family over eleven years ago. Sanji himself has no desire to be wed, but will our hero resist the beautiful charm of Pudding Charlotte, his betrothed and fellow cook? The curly-browed chef will lose his place among the Straw Hat pirates if the marriage pulls through, becoming an underling of Big Mom. As the captain of the Straw Hat Crew, Luffy would rather witness Big Mom poop then see that happen. Thus the curtain opens on a very Alice in Wonderland/Disney-esque adventure.
With Sanji in danger, can Luffy, Nami, Chopper, Brook, and their Mink friends Pedro and Carrot rescue him from a treacherously crafted marriage?
