Sanji, For the Last Time, You Are Not a Monster!

Remember when Sanji started using that Germa Raid Suit, and how everyone thought that it was so cool? That may no longer be the case. On the one hand, it’s unlocked his latent super-soldier abilities. On the other hand, Sanji’s worried that it’s going to turn him into a psychopath like his brothers. As the fight for Wano reaches its climax, Sanji grapples with the notion that he’s becoming a soldier of science.

One Piece Chapter 1029-No Need to Hold Back

Sorry, Hawkins, but That’s the Way the Tower Crumbles

presents hope, inspiration and renewed faith. The ever-famous World represents the end to a cycle of life and the start of something new. However, what’s most relevant to this chapter is the Tower. The Tower represents upheaval and change to the established order, and that’s what we are seeing. Wano is witnessing the fall of two Yonko and the birth of a new order.

What The Heck’s Going On With Queen and Sanji?!?

Onigashima’s minutes away from falling on the Flower Capital. If Luffy can’t stop Kaido before then, the Flower Capital’s doomed. If Momonosuke can’t hold it up, it’s doomed. Meanwhile, the last of Kaido’s elite, King and Queen, are tooth and nail with Zoro and Sanji. However, something weird’s going on with Sanji right now. Also, Queen does…something that I can’t really explain.

The Battle for Wano Nears Endgame in One Piece

so hard, he screamed! Then Luffy followed it up by clashing with him once more. Only this time, their punches split the heavens! As a result, the Mink Dukes managed to best Perospero and Jack. With so many of the Beast Pirates officers out of commission, we’re nearing the endgame to one of One Piece’s biggest arcs ever!

One Piece Chapter 1022-Black Leg and Pirate Hunter Strike

Time For the Stars to Take the Stage!

The moment when the anime starts the actual battle on Onigashima in earnest, I will be eagerly watching the whole thing. Thus far, the climax of the Wano Arc has seen the Straw hats and their allies fight unbelievable odds, and, despite some losses, they’re still winning! However, with the Flying Six now out, the biggest threat to the Alliance outside of the Yonko are the All-Stars. Luckily, the Alliance has two big stars of their own ready to take center stage.

Oh Great! The Kurozumi Clan is Back!

Do you know which character from the Wano Arc I hate the most? Orochi Kurozumi. Yeah, I feel sorry for how the Kurozumi Clan got hunted down because his grandpa tried to take over Wano, but that’s no excuse for what he’s done. He ran Wano into the ground, he knows he did so, and he doesn’t care. So when it looked like Kaido outright killed him, I felt robbed. I wanted to see the Kurozumi Clan brought to justice for their crimes against Wano. However, I had a feeling that Oda wouldn’t kill off a villain like Orochi so casually. As it turns out, I was right. This week, the Kurozumi Clan returns with a vengeance!

Dude, Otama is One Piece’s Momotaro!

You guys ever hear the story of Momotaro? It’s an old Japanese tale about a boy born from a giant peach. In the legend, Momotaro goes to Onigashima to defeat the demons residing there. And during his journey, he convinces three talking animals to join him in exchange for the Kibi Dango he has. The four beat up the demons, take their loot, and come home as heroes.

Why am I bringing this up? Because the latest chapter of One Piece made me realize that cute little Otama’s the manga’s version of Momotaro.

Kaido Finally Takes Things Seriously

At the end of my review of last week’s chapter, I said that Kaido had not yet begun to fight. That he had only been holding back against the Red Scabbards, which is why they were able to get in so many hits. It’s a standard trope in Shonen stories: the bad guy treats the heroes like an annoyance because only the main protagonist can stop them. It turns out that I was right to be worried for the Scabbards, as Kaido stops messing around and starts fighting seriously. Get ready for blood.
