My fellow One Piece fans, I’ve been waiting for this day for almost four years now. It’s been a long and winding road for the Straw Hats to get to this moment, including some unwanted detours. Still, here we are, the moment when the war to take down Kaido and Big Mom begins! And as we see in this chapter, it’s apparent that Oda’s not pulling any punches. Wano descends into all-out war!
Okay, so it seems that the manga’s back on a bi-weekly release schedule. However, given how events are starting to move right now, I’m okay with that. But first, I want to bring up the notion of inherited will. The idea of someone taking up the dreams and ideals of another has been a big part of One Piece since day one. Now, the concept of inherited will may be what helps save Wano. Also, we learn a secret about Yamato.
Straw Hat Luffy’s luck never ceases to amaze me. In the last chapter of One Piece, Luffy was able to free Hyogoro and himself from their collars while Big Mom ran wild. Unfortunately, eating all the Oshiruko earned him the wrath of the amnesiac Big Mom. It’s time to see the results of Luffy’s training in Straw Hat vs. Big Mom, Round 2!
In this chapter, the spark of rebellion begins to stir in Udon Prison.
