As the island of Onigashima continues to crumble around them, Komurasaki, AKA Hiyori, finally lets Orochi know just who she really is.
One Piece Chapter 1039 Review/Recap We all knew going into the Wano Arc that beating Kaido wasn’t going to be easy. In fact, it would likely be the toughest fight … Continue Reading I Think Big Mom Might Be Down for the Count
One Piece Chapter 1038 Review/Recap So, I’ve been saying for the last few chapters that the only major threats left to deal with are Kadio and Big Mom. Being Yonko, … Continue Reading Kid & Law Vs. Big Mom!
The fight between the swordsmen of the Straw Hat and Beast Pirates reaches its climax as the true face of King is finally revealed!
The way of the sword has always been the path that Zoro has chosen. As it turns out, it might be for a reason. His ties to Wano run deep.
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.
The Yonko and Orochi can try to resist the inevitable, but their reigns are over. The new generation of Yonko are about to rise to power.
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.
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.
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!
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.
For years, Robin has been unfairly known to the world as the “Devil Child”. But now, she embraces her moniker for the sake of her family!
Four of the Tobi Roppo, or Flying Six, Kaido’s Elite Guard, are down. They got felled by the Alliance, while X Drake defected to their cause. Now, the only one of them left is Black Maria, the spider woman, and she’s facing off against Robin and Brook.
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!
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.
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.
