One Piece Chapter 1020 Review/Recap
Four of the Tobi Roppo, or Flying Six, Kaido’s Elite Guard, are down. They got felled by the Alliance, while X Drake defected to their cause. Now, the only one of them left is Black Maria, the spider woman, and she’s facing off against Robin and Brook.
I give Black Maria two or three chapters before Robin squashes her like the pest she is.
Having transformed into his Mythical Zoan fruit form, Yamato goes all out in his fight against Kaido. Father and son clash in an epic battle as Kaido tries to make his son submit and become the new Shogun. However, Yamato’s determined to fulfill Oden’s will and open the country to the world at last.
Meanwhile, Robin finds herself face to face with her deceased loved ones, but she knows right away that they’re fakes created by Maria’s minions. After slapping the daylights out of them, Robin and Brook retreat from Black Maria, who keeps mocking them for believing that Luffy will defeat Kaido. Worse, she mocks Robin by saying that her friends will always sell her out. Thankfully, Robin knows Maria doesn’t know what she’s talking about. While Brook takes care of her living weapon, Robin creates a giant clone of herself, ready to squash Black Maria.
Down below on Wano, Luffy, the Heart Pirates, Momo and Shinobu regroup, with Luffy now fully awake. Having eaten all of the Heart Pirates food, Luffy has two things to do. Firstly, he needs more meat to get back to full strength. Secondly, he wants Momo to turn into a dragon and fly him back to Onigashima so he can beat Kaido for good.
After seeing what Black Maria’s capable of in this chapter, I have no doubt that Robin will wipe the floor with her. Firstly, Maria tried fooling Robin with images of her dead friends and Mom, which she was too smart to fall for. In addition, Brook didn’t fall for it either since he spent 50 years by himself. Nonetheless, I bet that it still hurt to see that. Secondly, Black Maria mistook Sanji’s cry for help to Robin as sheer cowardice. It wasn’t. Sanji knew he couldn’t beat the spider-woman since he won’t fight women, but he knew Robin would win. And once Black Maria’s gone, the Flying Six will be down for the count.
In the meantime, it looks like Luffy’s almost ready for the final round against Kaido. All he needs is some extra energy, and he’ll be ready to fight. However, the big problem is Momonosuke. The boy’s still weighed down by his doubts, which keep him from mastering his dragon form. If he wants to save Wano, then he has to become the dragon he was meant to be. Here’s hoping!
I Give “Robin vs. Black Maria” a 3/5
