One Piece Chapter 991 : Let Us Die – Formidable Foes And Unexpected Alliances

The One Piece manga is setting up a fierce war between the animal kingdom pirates and the alliance. Things are getting heated up and, surprises pop out of nowhere in every chapter. Let’s dive in.

X Drake wishes to ally with Luffy to take down Kaido. It was presumptuous of him to think that Luffy might accept this request. He attacks the numbers as a tactic to gain trust. We get a glimpse of his conversation with Tobi.

Tobi flatters Luffy in such a way that he exists in between 2 extremes.
” When he’s a friend, he’s so close to you…but when he is an enemy, he’s completely out of reach. That’s the kind of person he is. ” He said.

I’m impressed that even though they have been apart for so long. Luffy and Tobi share an understanding of each other that is clear as day.

X Drake can’t be trusted just yet until he proves himself in front of the Strawhats. Zoro, Franky, and Jinbei disagree with what he says and, they all have their reason for it. Working under Kaido for so long and then choosing to change sides at the sign of danger. That sounds like a weakness.

Luffy, on the other hand, straightaway says that he can join them. He is so innocent and Naive. This incident brings back memories. When he asked Law if he would betray them and he said no. Of course, he hasn’t betrayed him till now and, Luffy’s guts are something to rely on. I have no doubt, it’s that gut instinct that will help him find the One Piece. πŸ˜€

Ulti and Page One notices Luffy instantly and charge to stop him. As Luffy escapes, he is followed by the two. Sanji’s eyes straight away go to the cute girl wearing the mask. It’s so obvious. πŸ˜€

From a far distance, a familiar sniper shoots his special attack to stop Ulti and Page one in their tracks. Ussop and Nami appear and saves the day. They are the most normal people on the crew. The others are superhumans but the definition of humans can only be coined by these guys.

We get a cute Nami v Ussop scene like always. Ussop, hidden behind Nami, talks big and gains the attention of Luffy’s pursuers. Evasion is working to their advantage and we have to agree that it is their ultimate weapon.

Luffy and Sanji rush forward and they stumble onto Scratchmen Apoo. Luffy warns Sanji beforehand to cover his ears. I believe that Luffy used Haki to see the future. The events get more interesting. A lot is going on in each cubicle and, Eichiro Oda needs to be appreciated for his effort. The detail he puts into every slide is incredible.

Scratcheman Apoo, The numbers, and a new foe have appeared, all are trying to keep Luffy away from Kaido. Nevertheless, Luffy rushes to face Kaido. The penultimate fight that is brewing is to set up Luffy’s platform. I believe that as Luffy is backed up at a corner all the straw hats will assemble to help them. Taking down Kaido is going to be a team effort and its not something that Luffy will be able to do by himself.

The thing about One Piece being a well-told story is that it makes things real. It brings wonder, a lot of fun characters, meaningful relationships, and fights that live up to the hype. A particular level of strength needs to be obtained and harnessed. The power system set up in One Piece is by far the best in any anime.

Franky leads the giant away from the Dome upon instruction by Jinbei. It is an attempt by Oda to set up a fight for Franky. The subtle clues to his storytelling are seen all over the chapter. Nami teamed up with Ussop chasing away Ulti- Page one is also a subtle foreshadowing of fights to come. As an avid One Piece fan, if your reading or watching One Piece, you’ve got to keep your heart as well as your eyes open.

X Drake and Zoro keep going against each other, arguing about him changing sides. Scratchman Apoo appears in front of them and blabber about summoning more numbers. Zoro and X Drake simultaneously attack him and subdue him. X Drake and Zoro, for a limited time, think about teaming up to take Apoo out.

Queen unexpectedly appears out of nowhere and uses an ‘uncommon’ item known to the people of Wano. Wano was always backward in progress unlike the other islands on the Grandline. Shut from the world, no resources at all, and yet this weapon was ultramodern. It manages to hurt some samurai and, X Drake is also shocked at it. At first, he doesn’t believe that he can take him out with normal bullets like that. Then he realizes that it might be something else. Drop your theories about this. Do you think it might be seastone bullets to pierce devil fruit users?

Now we enter my most favorite part in the chapter. Nekomamushi and Inuarashi stand tall in their Sulong transformation. They manage to take out Jack, one of the top performers of Kaido. He massacred many mink tribe members and, this is a befitting end he deserved. He is down for the count and Kaido is mad at this sight. He tells Jack that he is not weak and he did his best to hold back the Sulong transformed Mink Tribe.

Oda portrayed Kaido as a drunk, vicious man who had no mercy or remorse towards anyone. He proved us wrong. Kaido cares for his crew and acknowledges him. He tells him that he has done enough and he needs to tend his wounds.

Kaido rises to the sky and uses his blast breath. He taunts the Akazaya Nine to’ run, tire and perish’. They have other things in mind. Kinemon rushes up to the flame straightforward and slashes it in half. It was one of the most epic moments. None of the Akazya Nine are backing out, and this time they are taking the fight to Kaido.

Until next time. See ya!

One Piece Chapter 990 : Army Of One – A New Ally?

Hello Everyone!
Welcome back to another fun-filled anime review.

Eichiro Oda has been pulling all the stops in writing the Wano war arc. Every week a lot of twists and turns come up to excite One PIece fans. This week is no different. Let’s dive into Chapter 990 of One Piece.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

Kaido goes against the whole mink tribe. As strong as he is it is a tedious task to go against the ‘Sulong’ transformed creatures. Even Jack, one of Kaido’s commanders gets what he deserves. As Kinemom gets ready to attack Jack, he is interrupted by Nekomushi and Dogstorm. They tell him that they will take care of Jack.

Jack is the pirate who decimated Zou in search of Raizo. He killed many of the mink members and destroyed their village. There is a long due of vengeance left and Oda offers up the fiendish foe to his grave. They tackle Jack ferociously. This part was especially satisfying because he got paid back for the atrocious crimes he had committed.

At the performance stage, Queen and King discuss the inmates who escaped Udon Prison. Old Man Hyogor and a lot of samurai imprisoned for rebelling against Orochi were imprisoned down there. Now all of them want revenge for the injustice caused to them. Monkey D Luffy leads the whole alliance.

King contact the tobbi-roppo. He explains that the situation has changed and there are 5000 members of the resistance attacking Kaido’s army of 30000 people. The odds of that are unprecedented but is in the favor of Luffy’s alliance.

A few moments before that Hawkins acts suspicious of X Drake and thinks that he might betray them. He tells him that if you are going to betray them, you should do it now. He prophesizes using his cards that there is a 1% chance of someone surviving the next day.

King explains that capturing Yamato is no longer a priority. Stopping the straw hats from heading over to Kaido is their current objective now. Everyone gets ready to attack the alliance.

Who’s who approaches X-Drake. He is also a traitor like X- Drake and has a goal to eliminate someone from inside Kaido’s organization. He wants to kill Queen and asks for X- Drake’s help.

As King looks into the performance stage, The straw hats and the Yakuza push forward to defeat the giants. The Yakuza faced with a predicament have to face Orochi’s ninja forces as well as the giants. They assure that they will take the straw hats to where they need to go and tell them to reserve their strength.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

Unlike any shonen character, we know the Strawhats don’t do that. Each one of them is a monster, and the stamina and energy are unparalleled to anything in this world. During the Thriller Bark arc, the straw hats face Oars, a giant creature who was similar to these creatures. All of them together defeated him and almost got killed but the times have changed now. The Strawhats members have one more person now and their power level has tripled and quadrupled immensely.

Luffy, Zoro, and JInbe move to attack. Zoro slashes and dices, Jinbe stops the monsters’ metal club with his bare hands and Luffy goes Gear fourth and takes the monster out. The straw hats remember their time together in thriller bark which was a long time ago. We have never got the Strawhats together like this ever since Fishman arc. The hype is real and the straw hats are not messing around. This war is taking a twist for the better. Oda Senpai, Thank you!!!!.
Thank you for the wonderful memories.

Drake has the living daylights knocked out of him by Queen. Whos WHo double-crossed Drake and sided with Queen. He might as well be executed at this point but he transforms and tries to escape. He thinks to himself, is there even a way to escape from this hell hole?

He remembers that Tobi, yes Luffy’s friend from episode 1 of One Piece, told him that Luffy- San is awesome. As he falls from the sky he takes down a giant simultaneously with Luffy.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

” Strawhat Luffy !! For Reasons I cannot say now, I am an army of One!! Please let me fight on your side!! ” he says.

Luffy’s reaction to this priceless and I bet the readers had a similar reaction as his. Every page of this manga is filled with twists and turns. I cant wait to see how this spectacle of a story turns out. This could be the greatest story that anyone has ever told.

Until Next time. See ya!
Kaizoku Ou ni, Ore was naru!!!!!!

One Piece Chapter 989 : I Can’t Imagine Losing – The New Strawhat Formation

Hello Everyone!
Welcome back to another fun-filled anime review.

One Piece is picking up the pace and with its latest chapter, the excitement continues. In the previous chapter, Franky rode in a motorbike and revved it up on Big Mom’s face. There was nothing more satisfying than that.

For a long time, we hadn’t seen Franky in action. The whole cake island Arc he wasn’t there and finally in Wano we get to see him fight.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

Big Mom is not even shaken by this attempt to stop her. She compliments Brooke for his vivid collection of members in the straw hats.
Franky teasingly asks if she liked his bike.

Nami is pretty tensed and warns Franky that Big Mom is an emperor. He asks Nami if she was trying to make Luffy the pirate king or not?

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

Franky’s confidence and bravado make you want to see him more. He is pretty adamant in defeating Big Mom. In that instant 3 giants called the Numbers to join the fight. They are a race similar to Oars from Thriller Bark. They were giants that Kaido brought in from Punk Hazard.

This war is the culmination of everything that has happened ever since the time skip. The path leading from Punk Hazard to Wano paves the way for this War.

Eichiro Oda, the author of One Piece said that the Marineford arc would look like child’s play in front of the Wano Kuni War and he might be right. He is pulling the stops on this war arc and making every chapter exciting. To bring all these elements from the stories he has portrayed is a magnificent feat. No wonder people call him Goda.

Franky notices something suspicious in the Giant’s hands. It is the Branchio tank. Ussop and Chopper are still in there.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

Franky’s sights diverted, Big Mom attacks from behind. Jinbe pulls back her hand and flips her using Fishman Judo. With the help of Nico Robin, she rolls down like a ball of hay in a storm. It was pure One Piece hilariousness.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

This is what has been missing from One Piece the past few arcs. The whole crew together again and cooperating in this fashion. The beauty of friendship and adventure. That is what One Piece is about. With this Jinbe has made his mark in the war as a member of the Strawhats β™₯️.

The Captain of the Strawhats Monkey D Luffy rushes towards Kaido. As he rockets upwards he meets Zoro and Queen. Zoro casually joins along to beat up Kaido. At that very instant Queen transforms into his Zoan form and bites into Luffy. King also arrives at the scene to take care of business.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

The Strawhats have this special ability to influence the environment they are in. The battles inside Onagashima keep getting better and better and all the allied forces are hyped up due to this. Old Man Hyogor claims that even if hope looks slim since the Strawhats are there he feels everything is going to be fine.

The main highlight of this chapter is the money shot at the end. The Strawhats with its new member standing in a very cool formation. Eichiro Oda subtly discuses the power scaling between Luffy’s crew and what to expect for the future. Damn it’s a pretty good time to be a One Piece fan.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

Luffy heads on up to beat up Kaido while Zoro and Sanji face off against Queen and King respectively. Each chapter presents a sense of excitement and that is what One Piece is all about. The Cogs and Gears are finally aligning together to form a hell of a great series. The fight for Wano and the dominance of the ocean continues.

Until next time. See ya!

One Piece Chapter 988 : Sorry For The Wait – Big Mom Against The Strawhats

Hello Everyone!
Welcome back to another fun-filled anime review.


The One Piece has been keeping us on edge with this new war arc, and it is nothing less than magnificent.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

Dogstorm and Nekomunshi from Zou and a bunch of their followers have assembled outside Onagashima. They have been waiting for the full moon so that they can be at their strongest when facing Kaido. As per plan they transform into their Sulong form and attack Kaido. Jack, one of Kaido’s top men, tells him that it is a momentary transformation and he can last the attack force until it ends.

Back at the main stage, Momonosuke’s execution turned out to be a historic turning point for Wano due to the sudden attack of the Akazaya Nine on Kaido. Shinobu tries to remove him from his shackles, but Queen spots her. She is flung from the top of the stage and plummets to the bottom. At that moment, Momonosuke’s shackles break and he floats on thin air.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

Queen and King were shocked, suspect that it might be the work of the devil. It’s non-other than Sanji in his raid suit. He stops King’s advances and throws Momonosuke onto Shinobu’s safe hands.

He commends Momo between all this madness. Sanji and Momonuske have had a lot of funny fights and disagreements but they always seem to make things right. Sanji accepted Momo as a man on this day and it is wonderful to see their relationship bloom.

While Sanji wasn’t looking King transforms into his animal form. He turns into a pterodactyl and almost pierces into Sanji’s stomach. King is not kidding when he says that he will make a hole in him and split him in 2. They crash into a building and the fate of Sanji is again, uncertain and hangs in the balance.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

Big Mom goes all out against Luffy. To recap, Luffy ruined the wedding, the tea party, and now the fire festival at Onagashima. Big Mom getting angry at Luffy is the most natural thing and from her point of view for good reason. She attacks Luffy and he realizes that he has to deal with her here and now before she helps the others.

Big Mom spots Zeus and rushes towards Nami to attack her. Zeus falls into the clutches of Big Mom. Nami is heartbroken but at that moment Sanji enters the scene, and this is by far one of the funniest moments since the war arc started.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

He enters in his General Franky robot and squishes Big Mom’s head with its tires. Brook also joins him and It was so satisfying to see hope restored for the alliance.

When something serious is going on the Strawhats getting into trouble, in the most hilarious is what One Piece is famous for. It is a fun story about adventure and drama. Eichiro Oda hypes up the scene in every chapter and we can’t get enough of this. One Piece continues to build upon its war arc and it continues to excite every reader. I would suggest you read this spectacle from the comfort of your home.

Until Next time. See ya!

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 .’

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.

One Piece Chapter 986 : My Name – A Review

Hey, everyone!
Welcome back to another anime review.
Today we will be discussing One Piece Chapter 986.
Let’s dive in.

Introduction:

One Piece is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Eichiro Oda. It revolves around Monkey D Luffy and the straw hat pirates. Luffy aims to become the pirate king and along with Strawhats, he wishes to bring a change to the pirate era.

The 9 Red Scabbards:

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

Tanjiro and Kinemon go up the rear entrance to where the battle waged on between the others and the traitor Kanjuro. When they arrive, they see Kanjiro’s dead body. We see the dread and despair in the eys of Kiku and Raizo as their ally who went through everything with them lies on the ground. We are taken back to the olden days when Kozuki Oden took everyone in and treated them as their own. The story of Kozuki Oden and his life will always be a boon to the One Piece community. Kanjuro was a traitor but he was a friend and an ally and that loss is not something that everyone can brush away.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

Kinemon and Tanjiro notice Izo immediately and are surprised that he is here. “I’ve missed too many chances for a glorious and meaningful death. ” Izo says. Momonuske is set to be executed soon and they hurry towards the main stage.

The Main Stage:

Kaido asks Orochi’s followers if they would join him or rather fight trying to avenge their master. Intimidated and scared, everyone chooses the easy way out and is glad to join Kaido’s forces.

Big Mom has captured Nami and Carrot with objects she gave souls to. They are subdued and Nami is hoping that she didn’t see Shinobu. She wants Shinobu to reach Momonuske as soon as she can.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

Kaido doubts on the origin of the child. He feels that the little kid is lying that he is Kozuki Oden’s son. He asks again and again if he is the son of Kozuki Oden. “This execution is to bring an end to the Old Wano. ” Kaido says. ” What is your name? ” he asks relentlessly.

Momonusuke has evolved so much ever since we met him at Punk Hazard. The crying boy has become a valiant man who does not give up in the face of the enemy. He has shown determination and perseverance and the way that Oda has built him up to this moment is truly amazing. It depicts the skill of character development by Eichiro Oda.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

Luffy tells Yamato about almost everything that has happened until now. The red scabbards and about Momonuske traveling through time. She is astonished that he is Kozuki Oden’s son. Luffy takes off Yamato’s cuffs but she warns Luffy to throw them away just in case they explode.

Adrenaline is pumping as Chopper and Ussop move quickly towards the main stage in the General Franky Robot. They have heard the announcement about the execution and are rushing there right now.

Ronoroa Zoro, Eustass Kid, and Trafalgar Law are all slaying people and approaching the main stage as well. The War for Wano is about to start soon. πŸ˜€

Momonosuke remembers the encouraging words said by his sister Hiyori and by Luffy. ” My name is Kozuki Momonosuke!! The Man Who Will Be Shogun of Wano ” he proclaims proudly. With fear and tremble in his eyes, he is ready to face the consequences like a man.

Luffy and Yamato enter the stage. The cuffs put on Yamato’s hands were exploding ones and it creates a really big distraction. Enraged Yamato is determined and poised to kill her father.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

Luffy stops Yamato from making any sudden moves. ” But we’re not the ones who start this battle,” says Luffy. I appreciate how most of the time when an attack occurs Luffy is the one to jump in front of the action. This time he is not rash and understands the pain the people of Wano went through and the remorse they feel after their Shogun was burned alive right in front of their eyes. He wants them to take control of their destiny and fight this tyranny.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

King, Queen, and Jack are astonished at the return of old foes. The Red Scabbards attack in synchronized formation. All the emotions, the worries, the sacrifices, and the memories of Kozuki Oden all fuel this one single attack. They push Kaido off the railing and finally, the war for Wano Kuni has begun.

Review:

Chapter 986 marks the beginning of the War. It has been built up every since Punk Hazard and the start is all we had expected for. The hype is real and what awaits us is in the upcoming chapter is going to change One Piece entirely. Eichiro Oda knows to flush out all characters and knows how to convey the emotions of these characters towards us. This is what makes One Piece amazing.

One Piece Chapter 985 : New Onigashima Project – A Review

Hey everyone!
Welcome back to another anime review.
Today we will be discussing Chapter 985 of One Piece.

Its been a busy week and a lot of manga chapters have come out. One of them has ended as well and will try my best to cover them all.
So let’s dive in.

Introduction:

One Piece is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Eichiro Oda. It has celebrated its 23rd anniversary this Sunday and is on its way into its final phase of storytelling. It is a story that revolves around Monkey D Luffy and his crew, the Straw Hat Pirates, documenting their adventures around the World.

Synopsis of the Chapter:

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

A few members of the Alliance reach the rear entrance of Onigashima. A team that consists of Raizo, Izo, Kiko, and various other members reach the gate. Waiting for them was Kanjuro the traitor. He had recruited some members from Kaido’s crew and had drawn two headless samurai to ambush the alliance.

They ask for the whereabouts of Momonusuke. Kanjuro explains to them that he had made an attempt to escape but was foiled. As punishment, he beat him up until he was unconscious. Kiku and the others tremble after hearing this. Enraged at hearing this, Kiku dawns her samurai helmet and rushes to attack Kanjuro. Inuarashi and Nekomamushi also gear up to attack and push forward.

The scene cuts to Luffy and Yamato discussing Kozuki Oden in the attic. Yamato tells Luffy that, since Luffy is Ace’s brother he is the one who should take her along with him in his ship. Just as Oden joined the Pirate King, Gol D Roger, similarily she wants to do this as well. She explains that she has been shackled for from the age of 8 and escaping from Kaido’s sight will trigger a bomb that may or may not kill her. She tells Luffy about the mental abuses she had to go through because of Kaido. Luffy without a word in reply to that asks if she wants him to take off the shackles. He valiantly tells her that he is going to knock Kaido down in front of her and in response, she says that she wishes that she could do the same.

We transition into the main stage where Kaido is giving a speech. He explains that it was not a coincidence that the Navy has decided to disband the seven Warlords. They have found some source of power to take on the Pirates and stop them once and for all. In a shocking turn of events, he announces ” We have joined hands with the Big Mom Pirates to seize control of the Ancient Weapons “

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

Big Mom rushes into the stage with a bunch of inanimate objects who are alive. We can see a glimpse of Nami and Zeus. Robin and the other Strawhats in disguise are worried. ” We are going to claim the One Piece”. These words resonated through Onigashima shocking everyone. Luffy and Yamato are ticked off at the sight of this news. Orochi laughs sinisterly in the back.

Kaido asks a very curious question after his shocking announcement. ” Followers of Orochi, you must choose now? “. He explains that he wants to make Wano a paradise for Pirates and the flower Capital is going to be the base of operations.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

The instant that Orochi reacts proclaiming that the flower capital is his property, Kaido launches an attack taking off Orochi’s head, killing him. All his followers are shocked. He loudly proclaims that as of this day Onigashima is no more and the flower capital is going to be New Onigashima.

Photo courtesy : Shueisha Shonen Jump Weekly – One Piece

Wano as we know it is going to be turned into a pirate empire in preparation for the World War. The Shogun will be his son Yamato. Enraged by this Yamato and Luffy rush into the battle. TO BE CONTINUED. πŸ˜€

My review:

This chapter marked the beginning of the end of One Piece as we know it. The World War is on the way and the hunt for One Piece begins. The turning point after this will be action-packed and a sight to see. As I write this review goosebumps course through my hands. The excitement fills my veins, the adventures continue and secrets will be revealed. What is One Piece and how will it change the world as we know it?
10/ 10 for this Chapter. It was mind-blowing. Start reading the manga. It is going to be worth it.

Ok let’s dive into the episode

Synopsis:

Luffy and Old man Hyogoro have been caught by Queen and his men in the prison. Luffy is offered by Queen to join the Animal Kingdom pirates but he refuses. In response to this Queen has plans to execute them.
He plans to have a little bit of fun with this. He announces that Luffy and Old man Hyogoro will compete with his guards in his Sumo Inferno , a sumo wrestling match. Its basically a sumo match and all the same rules apply. It’s just no hold barred.

The guards overconfidently confront Luffy and rush to execute him. Luffy uses haki and instantly immobilizes the forces in an instant. Everyone is shocked cause Luffy can use Haki .

X- Drake being from North blue realizes who stealth black is. Sanji, Hawkins, and X-Drake get into a fight inside the bathhouse while showcasing his powers. Sanji escapes with the ladies to where Ussop and the others reside.

The scenes ends with it cutting off to Luffy. His hunger for improvement is showcased and how he is going to attain that new power is going to be seen in the next episode.

In the end, we see Zoro approach a bridge and I don’t want to give spoilers but the next episode is going to fire.

My review:


This episode was everything I expected and more. This is where the pace picks up in One Piece as we edge closer to the events that are going to transpire. The animation has improved immensely and I will suggest anime One Piece who stopped watching the series should start rewatching from now. History is in the making and I think Toei animation is taking a new direction and trying to do justice to One Piece. I hope so

I know I am 3 days late but better late than never. I’m going to dive into the content.

Synopsis of the Chapter:

Luffy was seen engaging in battle with Page one and Ulti, 2 of the profound members of the Flying six, and a part of the Tobi Roppo. They were invited to the fire festival by Kaido himself.

The ending of the last chapter showed us a mysterious character using Kaidos Thunder Bagaou on Ulti and Page one. Decimating them completely.

The mysterious character Yamoto, who is the son of Kaido helps Luffy escape the duo to safety. Luffy being cautious is vary of this stranger. He picks a fight with Yamato not knowing who he is and not knowing why he is helping him. While they are fighting Yamoto says ” This is only making me remember a battle from the past.”

The fact that he would say something like this is very intriguing indeed. Did they know each other from before?

Was he a past enemy now turned into a friend?

The scene shifts to the Performance Stage in the Skull Dome where Momonuske is shown dangling from chains, badly bruised and humiliated. The straw hats can only look in despair as he hangs there. Kaido explains his “Onigashima Plan” to his whole crew.

The next scene cuts to Law and his crew along with Dogstorm, Kiku, and the others traveling in his submarine beneath the island to reach the passage into Onigashimsa through the back. There they meet Cat Viper and a few interesting friends of his who join the fight.

YES!!! Marco has joined the fight and he has brought along Izo, who was the 16th commander of White Beard Pirates. Everyone is ecstatic to see each other but there is no time to reminisce past experiences. Time is of the essence, Marco explains.

The story cuts to its final part where Yamato explains that he was a big admirer of Kozuki Oden and he was there 20 years ago when he witnessed the Hour of Legends where Kozuki Oden sacrificed his life.

He possesses a certain diary containing very important information that he wants to share with Luffy.

In the end, he rips off his mask and a little bit of the torso to reveal that Yamato is a woman dressed as a man. And the chapter ends with a line saying. You remind me of Ace.

My review:

This Chapter is one of the perfects examples of why Eichiro Oda Senpai is a master of his craft. He has built up the characters in such a way that they reappear in future chapters as important parts necessary to the storyline. Izo the 16 Division Commander for the White Beard Pirates who was a former resident of Wano who was seen in the Marineford Arc to be brought back into the mix is a clear indication that Eichiro Oda cares for his characters and every character has a purpose they need to fulfill in the entirety of the story. The reveal in the end with Yamato and leaving it as a cliff hanger for us to think upon is Eichiro Oda’s brilliance as a writer at play. This chapter was amazing and I am waiting to know about the connection between Ace and Yamato.

Were they friends and did Ace know that Yamato was a woman?

Where did Yamato get the diary of Oden from?
