One Piece Chapter 1028 – Sanji VS Queen: Metamorphosis

One Piece Chapter 1028 - Sanji undergoes a conversion

Sanji’s body has undergone an internal transformation and unbeknownst to him, effects of Judge’s research have begun to bloom within him, a son Judge once thought a failure. Sanji’s fears are perceivable but the heart he has cultivated over the years will not be inconsequential in raising him up. Empathy and emotion won’t be rewritten by the power now imbuing his body. The change arising has become less Judge’s experiment and more a power now a part of Sanji. All Sanji needs to do is embrace the inevitable metamorphosis now taking place. The power is his and he can choose how to use it.

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.

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 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 1014 – Kaido VS The Rebellion

One Piece chapter 1014 - Kin'emon defends against Kaido

After dispatching Luffy into the ocean, Kaido turns his eyes to the Samurai and in particular, Momonosuke, the Lord of the rebel forces currently fighting across Onigashima. Kaido intends to shatter the spirits of the rebels with the news of Luffy’s defeat and the annihilation of their lord, Momonosuke. What Kaido fails to grasp is the independence of each Samurai’s belief. They have all reached a point where they will happily give their life to protect and to fight for their lord, nation and people. Fear and desperation have already guided each of them to this point. Adding more terror won’t change the resolution burned into their soul. The Straw Hat Pirates won’t give up and neither will the Samurai. Kin’emon, the representative of the Samurai rebellion now stands against Kaido challenging him head on with the weight of the nation on his shoulder and the presence of his lord behind him. Overpowered by Kaido as he may be, Kin’emon still stands.

One Piece Chapter 1008 – Kanjuro And Orochi’s Return

One Piece chapter 1008 - Kanjuro's ink clone of Oden

It has finally been confirmed. Kanjuro and Orochi are still alive. Of course they are. From the moment their were presented as having been killed, it was obvious their deaths were only a misdirect to remove their presence from the focus of the story so that when they do reappear, a dramatic reveal could be possible. Death in One Piece for present time named characters is handled very subjectively. No matter how dead someone may appear in the story when their death scene is initially presented, if there is any ambiguity in their deaths, it is almost certain that they are still alive (looks at Vergo and Monet). The two conditions that are seemingly required before a present time named character can die are moving the plot forward substantially with their deaths and having another character(s) in the story ready to carry on their will. Neither Kanjuro or Orochi had any of that. Their reappearances more than a surprise were an expectant inevitability.

One Piece Chapter 1007 – Chopper VS Queen

One Piece chapter 1007 - Chopper transforms into his Beast Point and attacks Queen

Unknown to Queen, there exist a Doctor sailing the seas with the dream to cure any illness they come across. With medical knowledge and skill instilled onto him by the greatest doctors in the world, Chopper becomes pirate able to actualise his dream. Alongside his kind heart and advocation for life, the treatment he can provide does not discriminate against any in front of him. Instead, if a person needs saving, Chopper will make it his duty to help treat that person, be they friend or foe. Such a dedication to life has allowed Chopper to triumph over the Ice Oni Virus and win over the hearts of those afflicted by it, even his enemies. Now with Queen revealing the true face of the Beast Pirates and playing with the lives of those he considers insignificant, the Pleasures and Waiters have opened their eyes to the reality laid before them and as a result turned against the Beast Pirates who viewed them as worthless beyond dying for the organisation. Rather, the Pleasures and Waiters have cast their support behind the one who took it upon himself to save them. Their hero. Doctor Chopper.

One Piece Chapter 986 – The Courage To Face Your Fear

One Piece chapter 986 - Momonosuke recalls asking his father the meaning of his name

Say it! Shout it out loud for the whole world to hear. The resolve of your heart. The echoes of your suffering. The demons of your mind. Consolidate your courage and pierce through the shroud of terror crippling the conviction of yourself. In the face of the end, look straight ahead and express the unwavering will you hold. Kaido and the verisimilitude of death be damned. Who are you? Embrace your blood and burn your presence within the minds of those in attendance for your end. You are the man able to pull a country cast into ruin out from the hell it now exist in and into a reality outside exploitation, sadism and inhumanity. You are, what you believe you are!
