One Piece Chapter 983 Review/Recap
I’m not sure when I said it, but I think I remember saying something about this Yamato person being a potential factor in the war for Wano. As Kaido’s apparent son, Yamato’s likely to be very powerful. However, we still don’t know enough about him to decide whose side he’s on. If that sounds confusing, then you’ll need to see the next chapter of One Piece. Yamato could be a bigger wild card than Luffy in this fight.
Firstly, it’s revealed that not all of the Big Mom Pirates got pushed out of Wano. Perospero was able to use his Devil Fruit to create a raft to cling to, and is headed for Onigashima. On the island itself, things are starting to get heated. On the island itself, the heroes are getting split up for various reasons:
- Usopp and Chopper managed to get away from Big Mom, who’s now chasing after Nami, Shinobu, and Carrot to get Zeus back. Sanji went to help the prostitutes.
- Kin’emon and his group are moving on ahead.
- Zoro, Killer, and Kid are fighting the Gifters.
But the thing that’s of biggest concern is that Orochi has Momonosuke tied to a crucifix, and he’s going to execute him in front of everyone.
As for Luffy, he’s facing down two of the heavy-hitters in the Beast Pirates, Ulti and Page One of the Flying Six. As expected of their rank, they’re capable of giving Luffy a hard time. Then again, the rubber wonder’s able to hold his own.
Before the fight can continue, though, Ulti gets taken out by this guy wearing an Oni mask, much to everyone’s shock. As it turns out, that guy is none other than the son of Kaido, Yamato. Before anyone can capture him, he grabs Luffy and flees while saying that he’s been waiting for Luffy to come.
I’m sorry, what?
Like I said, Yamato might end up being a wild card in the fight against Kaido and Orochi. We don’t know anything about him yet, but based on what we do know and what he says, I’ve already come up with at least two theories.
Firstly, there may be the possibility that he wants Luffy’s help to take down his father. It sounds crazy, but this wouldn’t be the first time I’ve seen the child of an evil tyrant want to depose their parents. Yamato may want to do just that. As to whether this is out of the good of his heart or so he can take his place, though. That’s another matter altogether.
Secondly, he could have just wanted to bring Luffy to his dad himself so he can impress him. However, given the fact that Luffy senses no hostile intent from him, that seems unlikely for the moment. Luffy’s got a history of being a great judge of character, so I trust him. Besides, it’s Luffy. He does whatever he wants.
Sadly, we’ll have to wait two weeks until we can learn more about what’s happening. If this is because of COVID-19 or Oda’s on vacation, though, I understand. These are crazy times we live in.
As a whole, this chapter didn’t offer much outside of setting up plot points, but when the anime gets to it, I’m sure it’s going to get improved on.
I Give “Thunder” a 3.5/5
