One Piece Chapter 1007 Review/Recap
If you’ll recall, several chapters ago, Queen unleashed a deadly virus that turns people into ice zombies. And that he didn’t care if it would end up hurting his own men in the process. The virus has been kept at bay for a while, but unless Chopper creates a cure, everyone will die.
Fortunately, we all knew that Chopper wasn’t going to fail. Queen’s in a big surprise this week on One Piece.
Last chapter saw Boss Hyogoro use the Ice Virus to return to his prime and become a total badass. He managed to take down the captains of Orochi’s former samurai and ninja squads, but now the virus is about to claim him. Worse, his friends can’t bring themselves to kill him even as the ice virus is about claim everyone infected. When his men beg Queen to save them, the pirate cruelly calls them all cannon fodder meant who are only good for dying, destroying any loyalty they had left. Thankfully, Chopper arrives just in time and administers the cure, first to Hyogoro…
…and then to everyone else on the floor.
Furious that his plans were foiled, Queen lunges at Chopper. However, the now recovered Beast Pirates all turn on Queen and choose to protect Chopper, turning the tide in the Alliance’s favor. Oh, and Chopper gives Queen a sorely-deserved punch to the jaw.
In the storage room containing the Scabbards, the group’s woken up to find their injuries all treated. As for who did it, they are shocked to see that it appears to be….Oden Kozuki?!? WHAT THE HELL?
Okay, what the hell is going on. Oden Kozuki is dead. We saw him get shot right through the head by Kaido. And even if he survived that, he was surrounded by enemies in boiling oil. There’s no way he should have escaped. Then again, I’ve seen Luffy escape from equally impossible scenarios. However, I’m going to assume that this guy is an imposter.
Possible imposters aside, everything that happened with Chopper and Queen is exactly as I predicted. Thanks to Chopper saving everyone, the Pleasures and Waiters in the Beast pirates have all defected to the Alliance. That’s potentially thousands of people joining the good guys. Factor in Otama turning the Gifters and Headliners to her side, and their numbers go up even further. The math checks out: the Yonko stand a real chance at losing this war.
As an aside note, this chapter gave us a rather interesting revelation about Momonosuke’s artificial Devil Fruit. Doctor Vegapunk created it using DNA obtained from Kaido himself. That explains why Momo can turn into a dragon. I know Oda wouldn’t drop this kind of information at random, either, so it must mean something. I just don’t know what.
Sadly, One Piece is on break next week, so we’ll have to wait to learn the truth. I can wait, though. I’ve got a lot to think over after today.
I Give “Tanuki-San” A 4/5. Very Cathartic
