One Piece Chapter 1060 – The World Government’s Secret Weapon

One Piece chapter 1060 - The World Government's secret weapon

We have known about floating Islands in the sky since Skypiea and about man-made/alien Island flying constructs since that scene where Capone Bege was pulled into the sky pre-timeskip but this is the first time we have seen a Death Star type of weapon floating in the sky, although it could very be the construct Bege was attracted to pre-timeskip. With such a development, the World Government has now become the Empire within One Piece. If it was clear that the World Government are the final antagonist of One Piece (sorry Blackbeard), it should be very apparent now.

One Piece Chapter 1059 – Assault On Amazon Lily

One Piece chapter 1059 - Shakuyaku is the former Empress of Amazon Lily

What a spectacular turn of events to introduce the new technology of the Marines and consolidate the chaos erupting within the New World with the dissolution of the Shichibukai and the defeats of two of the Yonko. What appeared to be a likely victory for the Marines turned into a conflict that saw Blackbeard make an entrance and even the reintroduce Rayleigh into the story along with Shakuyaku who was a former Empress of Amazon Lily and the the former captain of the Kuja Pirates. How wild. I love it.

One Piece Chapter 1058 – A Clown’s Fortunate Misfortune

One Piece Chapter 1058 – Buggy's fortunate misfortune

Ever since the happenings surrounding Buggy within his initial appearance and the cover pages featuring him and his adventures, especially his meeting with Ace and the events that transpired within Impel Down, he has captured the essence of fortunate misfortune. Buggy may not get what he wants through the circumstances unraveling around him but what occurs is a miraculous level of serendipity that puts the fortune in misfortune. Truly, when it come to Buggy, when fortune strike, it always misses the mark for him hence that humorous spin of mis-fortune he is embraced by. Such a conveyance is expressed comprehensively within this chapter.

One Piece Chapter 1057 – Yamato’s Decision

One Piece Chapter 1057 - Luffy associates the Straw Hat Pirates with Wano Kuni

While within the realm of possibility, I am curious as to why Oda-sensei scripted Yamato in such a manner to only have him remain in Wano Kuni out of focus. I did suspect such a development, but I couldn’t see much reason for it considering the character and narrative momentum Oda-sensei has associated behind Yamato. One of the earlier theories I had which could have seen Yamato remain in Wano was the possibility of there being a seventh Wano Family and Kaido and Yamato being descendants of that family. In order to discover more about his blood and family story, Yamato would need to remain in Wano to uncover additional information. With Yamato not remaining in Wano to follow the “path” Oden took in traveling Wano, this could potentially open up an interesting path for Yamato to develop to be weaved into the story at a later point when the Straw Hat Pirates are in need of assistance.

Edens Zero Chapter 204 – The Story of [Ziggy]: Void

Edens Zero Chapter 204 - Ziggy's forgotten memories

I was absolutely wrong in my assessment of Ziggy and future <spoiler> in relation to the story and I don’t mind in the slightest because this has to be one of most affecting reveals I have experienced in Edens Zero. Everything from Ziggy’s inception, to the growing void in his heart, to the mission he was assigned with, to the Edens Zero’s origins. It all makes sense now. Why Ziggy began as such a character and why through the course of the expanding narrative, the shift occurred and entrenched Ziggy within the path he now finds himself on. It wasn’t nonsensical or illogical but a tragedy sourced from consequences of what came before.

Edens Zero Chapter 203 – Shiki VS Ziggy: Convergence

Edens Zero Chapter 203 - Future Shiki within the 20,000 year future timeline

The revelation within this chapter explains many things but it still leaves me confused in certain regards. The form Ziggy takes and the declaration he states conveys a clear narrative but the pathway toward this moment conflicts against its rationale. The Ziggy we knew was very much themed around a mechanical construct with limitations and operations consistent with that of a machine but given the current reveal, it appears human elements were apparent in the directives of Ziggy at least from the point when evil Ziggy revived after the Drakken Joe incident. The biggest question I have though, is why did “Ziggy” travel back to “that” moment? What was so special about that time? Was it lead Shiki down a certain path?

One Piece Chapter 1056 – Preparing To Depart Wano

One Piece Chapter 1056 - Luffy, Kid and Law decide their next destination

The Straw Hat Pirates conclude their loose ends in Wano and finally prepare to depart the land after having been disengaged from the outside world for a significant amount of time while events altering the landscapes of politics, power and possibility have transpired. The world has changed and the actions of Straw Hat Pirates on Wano have directly contributed to the reality they are about to return themselves into. The Straw Hat Pirates are now a Yonko crew with strong ally connections who are also about to get a new addition to their crew.

Edens Zero Chapter 202 – Holy VS Deadend Crow: Tears And Trauma

Edens Zero Chapter 202 - The conflict between Holy and Deadend Crow

I was prepared to have the pain of Holy’s past explored to the extent of losing a loved one but to have such a traumatic ordeal envelop her life, I was not ready for that. The rage Holy feels has been intensely intertwined within the scars of her trauma that unpacking it now involves more than just retribution against Deadend Crow. The nightmare that Deadend Crow exists as within Holy’s mind may be the immediate terror haunting her but will his erasure remedy the depths of her anguish or only reveal to Holy how consumed she has become by his shadow? The pain of her past has hollowed her out and left only rage from her scars to fill it up. This is where the Edens Zero comes in. They will assist Holy in the battle against Deadend Crow and be the light that illuminates the darkness Holy will find herself in after the battle. However Holy decides to move forward after the battle against Deadend Crow, she will have an answer to the emptiness awaiting her once the subject of her darkness is removed. An answer for how to build oneself back up.

One Piece Chapter 1055 – Momonosuke VS Ryokugyu: Be Free Yamato

One Piece Chapter 1055 - Momonosuke's unleashes his Blast Breath on Ryokugyu

The young yet tempered mind of Momonosuke has displayed the effects of its tragic and liberated journey against the towering force of one of Wano’s enemy’s most significant assets. Ryokugyu overwhelmed the Samurai but when Momonosuke was backed into a corner, even Ryokugyu felt the searing pain of the resolve affirming Momonosuke’s heart. Momonosuke bowed his head to save Wano and now with the nation released from the shackles of tyranny and darkness due to a combined effort of alliances and friendship, he realises the need for Wano to be able to defend itself. Momonosuke takes Ryokugyu on himself in order to convey to Yamato that the burden of being Wano’s defender has been released from him. Momonosuke understands Yamato’s dream and now that an opportunity has arisen, Momonosuke wishes wholeheartedly for Yamato to embrace it. The fear of facing an Admiral dwarfs in comparison to the desire Momonosuke has in wanting Yamato to be free. Momonosuke fights to give Yamato a send-off toward a future where he too has the freedom to pursue his dreams.

One Piece Chapter 1054 – Samurai VS Ryokugyu: Freedom

One Piece Chapter 1054 - The Samurai take on Ryokugyu

With conflict once again at the doorstep of Wano Kuni, will the Straw Hat Pirates be summoned to the nations defense or will the Samurai of the liberated Country endure to fend off the threat of the newly appointed Admiral? Based on what we have seen, while the Samurai can defend and fend off Ryokugyu’s attacks, they do appear to be overwhelmed by his abilities with just their current forces. If Yamato were to remain alongside them, I can see a path forward but with Momonosuke’s request, there may not be a conclusion for Yamato to this current battle. Along with the events in Wano, around the world varying forces are also making their move. Shanks has set his sights on One Piece and Sabo has become the icon for the Revolutions rebellion. Wrapping around all these developments is Sakazuki and his unphased desire to mete out justice. Once the dust is all settle, how will the structure of the conflict appear?
