One Piece Chapter 990 Review/Recap We’ve already seen it happen countless times throughout the course of One Piece, people. The good guys face a seemingly impossible situation, and it looks … Continue Reading A Lone Force To Tip the Scales
Two weeks ago, the Alliance of pirates, ninjas, samurai, and Minks began their raid on Onigashima. Thanks to the Beast Pirates spending the night partying, they got caught completely off guard. As a result, the Scabbards and the Minks separated Kaido from his army just as the full moon rises. But can the Alliance face down the might of two Yonko? After this chapter, I know they can.
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!
Well, One Piece goes on break for two weeks, only to come back and pull off a big plot twist. One that, honestly, caught me off guard. In hindsight, though, I think I should have seen it coming in the end. This chapter sees the Wano Arc take a new turn with the unveiling of the New Onigashima Plan.
I’m not sure if I’ve said it already, but if the Alliance wants to have any chance of beating Kaido, Orochi, and Big Mom, they need to keep the element of surprise. So far, they’ve managed to do that, despite the actions of Luffy, Zoro, Kid, and Killer. This chapter, though, sees some complications arise. Fortunately, the chapter also sees some new allies join the fight.
Last week, One Piece took a vacation as the Alliance finally assembled for the final battle. 5,400 pirates, Minks, ninja, samurai and Yakuza all poised to take down Kaido, Big Mom and Orochi. However, the Straw Hats roster is not yet complete with one member missing. Until now that is.
When I had heard about the rumor that there was a spy amongst the Nine Red Scabbards, I didn’t believe it. I had seen how loyal these men were to each other, and after everything they went through, the thought of one of them being a traitor never crossed my mind. After this chapter, though, I can deny it no longer: there’s a traitor in the Nine Red Scabbards. And you won’t believe who it is.
Some of us may want to get back to the action in the present. However, this chapter gives us a vital piece of information that explains how the Alliance won’t be stopped by Orochi’s plans.
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.
One Piece Chapter 970 Review/Recap The more we’ve seen of this flashback, the more I’ve been wondering something: how did Kaido beat Oden Kozuki? Oden was probably one of the … Continue Reading So that’s How Oden Lost!
I’m now ready for this flashback to be over. However, it would seem that Oda still has some more backstory to explain regarding Oden and the Nine Red Scabbards. Thus, we get to see how Oden went from being the one everyone hoped would save Wano into Oden the Fool.
Oden’s adventures with the Roger Pirates reach their climax as they reach the final island, Laugh Tale
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.
As Oden continues to have the time of his life living abroad, back home, Orochi Kurozumi begins his rise to power. KUROZUMI!!!!!!!
After trying to leave Wano for so long, Oden finally has his chance with the Whitebeard Pirates. The grand adventure of Oden Kozuki finally begins!
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.
