Welcome back to another adventurous anime review.
Today we will be discussing One Piece Chapter 987.
For some weeks now this chapter has claimed to be very emotional by none other than Eichiro Oda’s editor, Takano Ken.
Let’s dive in and see what’s in store.
One Piece is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Eichiro Oda. It revolves around the adventures of Monkey D Luffy and his pirate crew, the straw hats. This adventure has been the culmination of true friendship and storytelling like never before.
Chapter 987 brings all the excitement towards its viewers. The culmination of a string of stories after the time-skip has led to this exact moment. The war on Kaido has begun. Punk Hazard, Dressrosa, Zou, and finally Wano. These were the arcs that defined each character of the Akazaya nine and led to this moment.
As Kaido is being pushed down from the ledge of the stage by the Akazaya nine, he remembers how Kozuki Oden talked about this day. The wounds and memories all come rushing back to Kaido. Kaido screams with excruciating pain. The scar he received from Oden resonates with the swords of the AKazaya Nine. He expects that they use the same Ryou as he once did.
Ulti and Yamato cross paths with each other. Ulti is back for revenge and wants to know why Yamato is doing all this. She explains to her that it’s her time to be Kozuki Oden. Big Mom spots Straw Hat Luffy and charges toward him. Nami and Carrot escape from the clutches of Big Mom’s sinister pets.
Kaido is finally able to join the dots of the Akazaya nine’s plans. He understands the plan has been set from Punk Hazard to Wano. People have recruited for the same cause, some traveled through time and some have endured through the ages to meet for this exact reason. Kaido mocks Kinemon and tells him that pirates always betray people and run away at the first sign of danger. The vendetta against Kaido boils inside Kinemon. ” He will one day stand at the pinnacle of the sea!! If every last one of us dies, he will remain!!! ” Kinemon says. The belief that they have for Luffy to become the pirate king is tremendous. This page is what makes One Piece, epic. It brings its viewers to their knees.
The alliance goes all out in the performance stage. The prisoners who escaped from Udon prison, The samurai of Wano, the Yakuza, Strawhat Pirates, Law, Eutass Kid, and Marco the phoenix have all assembled to fight for their lives and for the freedom of Wano.
Big Mom taunts Luffy. She makes fun of him for trying to challenge Kaido. His reply shocks the entire place up and fills it with energy. “It’s an all-out war!! I came here to whoop the whole lot of you !!” Luffy screams. Luffy has been enduring the wrath of the Yonko’s ever since the whole cake island. Determined to stop Big Mom and Kaido, he will defeat them with the help of the alliance. His growth in the series is tremendous and this will be the first step to becoming ‘ The King of the Pirates .’
Kaido hears the challenge towards him. He accepts and transforms into his dragon form to fight outside. Kinemon grabs a hold of him and transports out of Onagashima.
The Akazaya Nine stand tall against the might of Kaido. A twist in the story has finally arrived. They predicted that Kaido will transform and battle in his dragon form. It is a full moon night and for the mink tribe that means only one thing. They can achieve their powerful ‘Sulong’ form. the anticipation for the next episode is high.
