One Piece Chapter 1037 Review/Recap
It’s taken us almost a year and a half to get this point, but the journey has been worth it. The raid on Onigashima started with the Alliance outnumbered six to one, but besides a few hiccups, the good guys have taken down all of the enemy officers . The only ones left standing are Kaido and Big Mom, and the former’s fight with Luffy is reaching its end stages. There’s just one problem, though: Kaido starts to get drunk. And, a Drunk Kaido turns out to be way more dangerous than a sober Kaido.
Also, the World Government’s plans to annex Wano won’t work, but not for the reasons I first thought.
In the Flower Capital, the Fire Festival’s beginning to wind down, with everyone sending their wishes up into the sky in paper lanterns. Back on Onigashima, Kaido surprises Luffy by starting to get drunk in the middle of their fight. The Yonko says he only does that when he’s having fun; Luffy’s the first person in a long time that can make him go all out. Then, things get weird.
Now that he’s drunk Kaido, the Yonko starts going through various phases. Firstly, there’s laughing drunk Kaido:
Then sad drunk Kaido:
Crying drunk Kaido:
Lastly, we got angry drunk Kaido. The results, though, are that they make it hard for Luffy to predict his opponent.
In Marie Geoise, the Gorosei grow increasingly alarmed by how things in Wano are turning out as they contact their invasion fleet. However, things get worse when they get reports of a giant black shadow appearing behind them, fearing it’s the work of a Devil Fruit that they’ve tried to hide from the world.
Well, this was unexpected. Leave it to Eichiro Oda to find a way to make one of the biggest fights in the series to date silly. I knew that getting drunk makes people act crazy, but seeing how Kaido acts takes it to a new level. At the same time, it also makes him far more dangerous. Not even Luffy can get a fix on what’s going on. It’s like what happened when Rock Lee got drunk that one time.
In addition, while I knew that the World Government’s plans to annex Wano would fail, I did not expect them this to be the potential cause. I almost forget about Zunesha, the island-sized elephant that the Minks call home. If Zunesha has come to Wano, I think it’s because it’s there to help the Minks. It could lay waste to the World Government’s fleet and stop Onigashima from falling. This is just speculation, though, as we won’t know until the next chapter in two weeks. I’m honestly looking forward to seeing how things turn out, though.
I Give “Shuron Hakke” a 4/5
