One Piece Chapter 1026 – Luffy And Momonosuke VS Kaido: Resolve

One Piece chapter 1026 - Luffy and Momonosuke VS Kaido

It has been an age of terror, grief and unfamiliarity for Momonosuke during the past few months. The heart mourning the loss of his parents still remains entrenched in the dread of darkness blanketing his world from that day. Such a trauma compelled him forward but also haunted him with his inabilities. Twenty years may have passed but for Momonosuke, the death of his mother and father was but moments ago. Sorrow still fresh continues to overwhelm him. Now face to face with Kaido and in a position to stand against such a terror, Momonosuke fights off his fears and thanks to Luffy’s words and support, commits himself to a path of resolve.

[Theory] One Piece – The Story Relevance Of Yamato

One Piece chapter 999 - Yamato expresses their dream

Kozuki Oden had TWO wishes. One to open the borders of Wano and the second to assist the figure the world had been waiting for over the span of hundreds of years i.e. Luffy. It is pretty apparent at this point that Yamato has inherited the will of Oden and is currently fighting to see Wano Kuni liberated from Kaido and subsequently have the nation’s borders opened.

The battle which Oden mentioned would take place 20 years after his death was not just the battle against Kaido but also the battle against the World Government, the enemy which the Kozuki closed Wano Kuni’s borders to defend against. Yamato wants to fight on Luffy’s side. And such a desire will not only entail the battle against the Beast Pirates but also the inevitable battle Wano and those nations that align with their beliefs will have against the World Government when they become the target. Yamato’s wish to get stronger as he sails the seas before fighting in the war will manifest as they join the Straw Hat Pirates.

One Piece Chapter 1025 – Yamato VS Kaido: From Chains To Bonds

One Piece Chapter 1025 - Yamato and Luffy attack Kaido

I find it symbolic how the opponents currently standing against Kaido are those who unintentional consumed Devil Fruits. The power they attained isn’t something they sought but one derived through a twist of fate. A moment that now stands to shift the flow of the era down a different avenue as the actors within this stage fight for what they believe in. The shackles that once bound Yamato physically and mentally under Kaido’s shadow now shatters in the face of bonds connecting Yamato to a domain outside the blood flowing through him. Though a connection exist, Yamato is not Kaido and the path he traverses does not need to be the one governed by the conclusions of Kaido. Yamato is free. And he is not alone.

One Piece Chapter 1023 – Passion. Will. Heart. Conviction.

One Piece chapter 1023 - Momonosuke's transforms into his Dragon form after being aged up

That chapter. My goodness that chapter. What an unbelievably incredibly electrifying read. I loved it. My body was not ready for how amped up it would now be. Ahhh, how glorious. The threads of the journey unfolding throughout the manga have now found themselves converging at a point tying together a new thread on which the path forward has been constructed. The satisfying nature of payoff is a magical experience in how something so consuming and defined can yet surprise the avenues of the mind when the moment is presented in the manner as it was in this chapter. Certain elements were expected but the way they aligned and cascaded alongside each other, such a feeling evoked is indescribable. But if a word was to be placed reflecting the spirit of its conveyance – exhilarating,

One Piece Chapter 1021 - Robin's Demon Bloom takes out Black Maria

One Piece Chapter 1021 – Robin VS Black Maria: Demonic Bloom

Vigilant one should be in the presence of a will backed into a corner. Expectations can often become the debilitating web ensnaring ones judgment. Such was the case for Black Maria who seduced herself with her own ego, delusion and power. The projection she created dominated her perspective and shackled her foresight. Caution evaporated and left imprudence to pilot her actions. So entrenched was Black Maria by her arrogance, the thought of being overwhelmed by Robin became an impossibility. And within that absence of anticipation, a blind spot was spawned. Black Maria faced impossibility and could do little against the crumbling of her judgment. She was wrong and within her psychological descent, the terror known as “Devil Child” Robin overwhelmed Black Maria. Robin has won. And the Beast Pirates suffer another critical blow.

One Piece Chapter 1018 – Jinbe VS Who’s Who: The Heart Of A Fish-Man

One Piece chapter 1018 - Jinbe VS Who's-Who

What a exhilarating display of power, technique and composure by Jinbe. I am left in awe. To handle the six forms of the Cipher Pol secret arts and to defend, evade and then counter them. Jinbe is a master for a reason. Who’s Who has been utterly bested. The battle is over but Who’s Who will not be killed by Jinbe as the CP-0 expect. And unbeknownst to the CP-0, there are others present on Onigashima that possess more dangerous knowledge of the secrets hidden in the past that the World Government wishes kept buried (Momonosuke, Yamato, Kaido and Robin).

One Piece Chapter 1015 – Continue The Fight

One Piece chapter 1015 - Momonosuke relays Luffy message

Ah, what a glorious chapter. Within the inevitability of darkness, where prospects of hope and the tangibility of courage cease to exist, a glimmer piercing the veil of shadows endures. A miracle. A message. A mind unyielding to the inabilities of the past. Luffy has not lost. Luffy will not lose. Luffy refuses to lose. He will make it back to Kaido and beat him. The battle has not reached its end, it is but at a point where all hopes have gathered behind Luffy and Momonosuke. The Samurai may not know Luffy but they believe in Momonosuke and Momonosuke believes in Luffy. Every second endured is a second closer to Luffy’s return and Kaido’s defeat. Don’t give up! And Fight!

One Piece chapter 1013 - Ulti overwhelmed by Big Mom in one hit

One Piece Chapter 1013 – The Might Of The Yonko

One Piece chapter 1013 - Luffy knocked out and knocked off Onigashima Island by Kaido

None of the challengers so far facing off against Big Mom and Kaido have yet to escape the gaping chasm of differing power levels that exist between the Emperor and themselves. Page One encountered Big Mom and was taken out by one hit. Likewise, Ulti, looking for an avenue to vent her rage sourced from witnessing Page One getting injured has met the same fate when facing off against Big Mom. After one hit from Big Mom’s Master Cannon, Ulti is unconscious and defeated. The only two characters that have somewhat challenged the Yonko are Luffy and Zoro. Yet, both are incapacitated with Zoro momentarily out of commission and Luffy unconscious plummeting from Onigashima floating in the sky toward the ocean below or the Wano mainland if Onigashima has reached it. Will an ‘ally’ able to traverse the skies save Luffy or will the awaiting ground or ocean below greet Luffy with its vast embrace?

One Piece Chapter 1011 – Code Of Honor

One Piece chapter 1011 - Big Mom's anger directs itself towards the Beast Pirates who caused harm to those she feels indebted to

If the Beast Pirates knew beforehand that Okobore Town were associated with Linlin would they have acted differently? They certainly would have reconsidered burning the town to the ground and chosen a path more merciful if only to save themselves later down the line. But such a thing didn’t happen and now Big Mom’s anger has been directed toward Kaido’s followers who harmed those she is indebted to. Even with her positioned at the top of the criminal world, she has principles she adheres to and injuring those who showed kindness to her is one of those lines she dare not cross. Big Mom never had any loyalty to the alliance with the Beast Pirates and only endured it as a necessary stepping stone on her path toward her dream. If Linlin’s treatment of Page One is anything to go by, she is mad and those that burned Okobure Town to the ground now have the shadow of death behind them. The code of honor they failed to follow will now be beaten into them.

One Piece Chapter 1010 – Luffy VS Kaido

One Piece chapter 1010 - With focused awareness, Luffy applies his instinct and knowledge to his Haoshoku Haki

One of Kaido’s biggest errors was not assessing the potential of his enemies adequately. Blinded was he by the inexperience of the challengers standing against him that the apparent form of their threat became obscured by the arrogance of his own pride. Kaido had many opportunities to recognise the true danger existing in front of him but the delusion of his superiority mask what is now blossoming before him. The flame burning within Luffy has reignited and within its blaze is the awareness of Haki and the application that is possible. Kaido’s power may be vast but the opponent before has a potential not yet defined. And the longer Luffy comes to familiarise himself with the application of Haoshoku Haki, the more dangerous he becomes to Kaido.
