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.
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!
Last chapter of One Piece gave us our first look at the life and times of Oden Kozuki, and his life was crazy. His father couldn’t take it anymore, so he had to disown him. At that moment, though, the capital came under attack. By a boar so big, that it’s called the “Mountain God.”
One Piece has spent the entire Wano Arc building Oden Kozuki into this lather-than-life legend. How he was the only person to injure Kaido. How he was a member of the Roger and Whitebeard Pirates. Yet the Wano Arc’s entering its climax, and we know so little about the man. Thus, before the final battle for Wano, One Piece gives us its traditional, expository flashback. This is the story of Oden Kozuki.
Act Three of the Wano Arc begins, but despite everything that Luffy and the Alliance have done, has Orochi beaten them to the punch?
For the third week in a row, One Piece ended up trending on Twitter. It’s awesome!
