Being Boiled Alive is a Gruesome Death

At twelve chapters and still going, this flashback to the life of Oden Kozuki may be one of the longest in One Piece history. However, it would seem that Oda’s getting ready to end this story and bring us back to the present day. In the manga’s defense, though, Oden’s set to go out in a very heroic manner. All while being boiled alive, no less.

A Day In the Life of the Roger Pirates

Even though we’ve learned more about them as the manga’s progressed, we’ve never really gotten a long look at the Roger Pirates. Until now, that is! In this chapter, Oden comes face to face with Gol D. Roger himself, and gets inspired to go on his greatest adventure ever.

Becoming True Samurai

Since One Piece started the flashback to the life of Oden Kozuki, I’ve had mixed feelings about it. I like them, but they don’t tell us the important things. I want to know how Oden got out of Wano and his connection to Roger and Whitebeard. Thankfully, this chapter sees the story starting to get to the good stuff. In the short-term, though, we see the Nine Red Scabbards become true Samurai.

Nine Red Scabbards Assemble

A few weeks ago, Act 3 of One Piece’s Wano Arc started, to fans joy. However, it then immediately shifted into another one of Oda’s world-building flashbacks. In this case, it’s the origins of Oden Kozuki and his retainers, the Nine Red Scabbards. The last chapter saw Oden take up residence with Yasuie after his dad disowned him. The legend of Oden continues to grow in this chapter!
