Will there be any future delays regarding the same in One Piece manga?
Yes, the creator Eiichiro Oda recently said that all the staff members’ health comes first so they are working from home, which makes it slow for them to coordinate. So, instead of going on an indefinite break. The manga will probably take small breaks. Just like this one, we can expect the same for the next few chapters of the manga.

The creator is already hinting us at something big. Kaido’s son is surely getting the build-up he deserves. That being said, there have been various theories on the internet regarding him, however, none of them seems to verify the identity of him as described in the previous chapters. Let’s see if the creator gives off any other info regarding Kaido’s son in One Piece Chapter 980.

He is also ready to take action on their attack at him. Now, Orochi can sleep peacefully at night.
However, Orochi isn’t aware that the raid at Onigashima has begun already. The Easter, as well as the Southern troops, are being led by Kine’mon and Denjiro whereas the other scabbards will be coming with Law through the sea.
Even though not all beast pirates are aware of him being the spy, Kanjuro says that he is lost inside Onigashima as it’s his first time, making it hard for him to navigate.
Kanjuro still needs to deliver his report to Orochi, which he can’t because he’s lost.
