    Default Volume 97 Predictions/Discussion

    The Volume will release on 04 of Sep 2020! Release Date maybe will change due to Covid-19.

    That stings, and it paints a disappointing picture of the release schedule going forward. I was hoping for more of an August thing.

    Still, it'll be keep Oda safe, and gives him a chance to build a buffer between the weekly chapters on the volumes, which were catching up fast before this. It'll be a shame vol 98 probably isn't coming out in the 2020 oricon year though. Maybe we'll get all four out in 2021.

    Anyway, my vision for the cover has Luffy, Law and Kid, the Tobi Roppo and Apoo, plus the big skull of Onigashima in the background. I've got a layout pictured I might try to illustrate late, but I think that's a good combo of characters to show what's going on without giving too much away. Unless a better title comes along in the next three chapters I'm betting on "Fighting Music." It's far from dramatic, but leave it to Oda to pick the fun title instead.

    If Yamato appears by the end of the volume, I could see the title being 'Family Problem'

    I could also see 'The Party's Off' or 'Joining the Fight' as the title; The latter is really generic, but Oda chose some of the most generic chapter titles for volume titles during Dressrosa like 'Just Keep Going', 'Repaying the Debt', and 'Ever At Your Side'; Volume titles have been better since then I think.

    'The Party's Off' might work if only because they're raiding the Fire Festival so it might have a double meaning when applied to the volume as a whole.

    At least it'll help VIZ's releases catch up a bit more. English 94 will be out in August, so we'll be just 3 behind.

    Yeah good point. I thought we were going to start to fall behind since Viz has spaced out the release of 93, 94, and 95.

    The Viz catchup angle is a good one. For a moment I forgot how far behind the Ace novel set us.

    Unrelated, but it would be dope to open up 2021 with 2 chapters in 1 issue, 999 and 1000. Might just get the cover and a colorspread tho. Maybe an interview as well

    For the cover of vol. 97
    - The Scabbards + Luffy, Law and Kid
    - Can't be Tobi Roppo, that would mess up the reveal
    - Least likely would be Jinbe

    Here's my prediction/fanart cover, going on the assumption that "Fighting Music" will be the title.

    One Piece logo goes behind Apoo's hands but in front of Onigashima, making it look like the horns are coming out the sides. It'll probably need to be transparent like it was in volumes 70, 83, 88 and a few others for a good look.

    Might eventually scan this so I can add the logo properly myself and fix up some of the bits that pain me like Luffy's janky face and Law's tiny head, but for now I think it gets the key ideas of the cover across.

    Cheers Chrior!

    Turns out I couldn't get my hands on a scanner at the minute, but I cleaned the photo version as best I could. Quality isn't spectacular, but it's more about illustrating the concept and layout than it is creating good art, so I'm not that bothered by it.

    I wonder how long till we get a cover with Kaido and his crew? We had one for Barouqe Works, CP9, Doflamingo pirates and Big Mom's pirates, the only covers without Luffy on them

    I assume we'll get one with Kaido's crew soon, followed by a cover with the straw hats and there allies (just like what happened in the next volumes after the ones I just mentioned)

    That tends to happen pretty close to the end of the conflict.
