One Piece Chapter 1038 – Kid & Law VS Big Mom: Defiance

One Piece Chapter 1038 - Big Mom overpowering Kid and Law

The Yonko are indeed the titans of the current age whom influence macro and micro decisions of varying factions existing across the Grand Line. When you have someone like Big Mom who destroyed one of the leaders of the Elbaf Giants as a child and continues to threaten the role of the Marines through her dealings with the Underworld and her pursuit of becoming Pirate King, it is little wonder why her name evokes terror whenever whispered. And beyond Charlotte Linlin there is Kaido, Shanks and Teach. Each of these mysterious characters are elevated to the positions they hold by the power they possess. Their name, status and reputation ensured any challenge directed their way was kept to a minimum. But it is this hubris that blinded them to the true threat of the Worst Generation. Even now, Big Mom rejects such a reality. Her biggest and most severe misstep she has taken in her tenure as a Yonko is underestimating the opponents currently before her. The defiance Law and Kid have expressed has literally stopped Big Mom in her tracks.

One Piece Chapter 1036 – Luffy VS Kaido: New Generation

One Piece Chapter 1036 - Luffy VS Kaido

The Beast Pirate All Stars and Tobi Roppo have been defeated and all that remains are Kaido, Big Mom, Kazenbo, Fukurokuju, Orochi and the CP-0. The new generation are currently handling Kaido and Big Mom with Yamato rushing to the armory to prevent Kazenbo from igniting the explosives and weaponry. Raizou will take care of Fukurokuju with Hiyori and potentially Denjirou handling Orochi. Outside of these, the most pressing issue are the movements of the CP-0 and their actions relative to the Straw Hat Pirates. The CP-0 sense a potential problem arising with the new generation pirates overwhelming the Beast Pirates. Rather than be caught unprepared with their pants down, the CP-0 have decided to focus on procuring Nico Robin and dealing with the Straw Hat Pirates after they are weakened. Unbeknownst to the CP-0 are the developments taking place atop the Onigashima Skull Dome where Luffy and Kaido are gaining an appreciation for their opponents. As excitement swells up inside their hearts, a connection begins to form that will inevitably end up collapsing the future plans of the CP-0.

One Piece Chapter 1033 – Zoro VS King: Shimotsuki

One Piece Chapter 1033 - Zoro VS King: Death Lion Song

Even beyond his limits Zoro is still challenging the boundaries of what lies even further. His sight is set on an end far outside his current position. King is without question the stronger fighter in the battle at present but there is an inherit capacity within Zoro to get stronger within moments of strife. The wall that lies ahead of Zoro is one he knows he needs to overcome lest he fails to fulfill the promise he made to Luffy, to Mihawk and to Kuina. With his resolve now tempered, there is only one last thing he can do. And that is to go all out. Unleash and leave nothing in reserve.

One Piece Chapter 1032 – Zoro VS King: Flame

One Piece chapter 1032 - Zoro uses Dragon Twister on King

Limits are a concept Zoro has always pushed from his childhood when he desired to wield as many swords as possible, to humbling his pride when requesting Mihawk, the wall representing the obstacle he needs to overcome, to mentor him in the way of the sword all so he could eventually defeat Mihawk. To his current state of already being exhausted from fighting Big Mom and Kaido but having his body boosted from Mink medicine. The path Zoro is on has always been one directing him beyond his limits. In this moment the wall in front of him is King and the secrets behind his origins. In order for Zoro to devise a counter to King, he requires the power of knowledge.

One Piece Chapter 1031 – Sanji VS Queen: One Man’s Heart

One Piece Chapter 1031 - Sanji faces off against Queen

Whatever Sanji did during his blackout, he without a doubt didn’t harm a lady. Such a possibility is not only too obvious but it is grounded in a realm of improbability. Whatever happened to Sanji in the past, he never allowed harm to come to a lady in his presence, at least harm not paid back. There is a larger mystery in play beyond Sanji’s fears coming to reality. Not only has Sanji’s heart remained intact for all these years but his experimentation by Judge was varied from his siblings due to their mother, Sora. Whatever is going on with Sanji, it is different from what happened with Ichiji, Niji and Yonji.

One Piece Chapter 1027 – Zoro VS King: Fury

One Piece Chapter 1027 - Zoro breaks part of King's mask

The mystery behind King’s appearance is starting to unravel and inevitably the form of such an enigma will be unmasked. What will Zoro witness when he accomplishes such an act and will the image before him resonate with a figure he knows? Or will the image of a Lunarian beckon more questions than answers? What is clear is that Zoro is beyond his limits and King has suffered a blow unknown to him. Both combatants look to end the battle without delay and through such fury their battle has led them to the surrounding land outside the Onigashima skull dome. Both are now free to unleash.

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 1022 – Zoro & Sanji VS King & Queen: Wings

One Piece chapter 1022 - Zoro and Sanji VS King and Queen

The Wano Kuni Arc is building up as the representation of the Straw Hat Pirates message to the world. Once Kaido is defeated and Big Mom obstructed, the world will know in no uncertain terms that the Straw Hat Pirates have achieved what no one before them have. They challenged the Yonko and won. Ever since the great Pirate Age began and the Yonko were formed, none of them were completely defeated. Whitebeard died but he didn’t lose, not really. What Whitebeard set in motion will ultimately result in the downfall of the World Government. Luffy and the wings that support him will undoubtedly become the Pirates closest to the One Piece once Kaido is defeated and they acquires the third Road Poneglyph.

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.
