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.

One Piece Chapter 1009 – Big Mom’s Weakness

One Piece chapter 1009 - Big Mom attacking Kid after her Homies are disarmed from her

In the face of the otherworldly power Linlin possesses it becomes hard to perceive that behind such a destructive force, there is a glaring weakness in Big Mom’s fighting style. It became apparent during the Whole Cake Island Arc and is now on full display during the cliff hanger of this chapter. The Soru Soru no Mi grants Linlin immense power but due to her hubris and unrestrained arrogance, she has become completely intoxicated by the superior nature of her Devil Fruit abilities that it has blinded her to her own inabilities. At present, Big Mom is not even aware how lacking she is without the assistance of her main Homies. Once she reaches the bottom of her fall though, she will quickly come to reconcile the slip in her step.

One Piece Chapter 1003 – Luffy And Zoro VS Kaido

One Piece chapter 1003 - Luffy taking on Kaido

The qualities of an emperor are on full display within this chapter. Despite Luffy’s loss to Kaido earlier in the arc when he was completely overwhelmed, Luffy identified a path forward and during the two weeks leading up to the Fire Festival, training was undergone to prepare himself for the battle against Kaido. The inability to injure Kaido was the hurdle Luffy needed to overcome and thanks to Hyogoro and Luffy’s tenacity, Luffy was able to advance his Haki. The speechlessness of Big Mom and the pressured reaction of Kaido conveys how extraordinary Luffy’s growth is.

One Piece Chapter 1002 – Yonko VS The Next Generation

One Piece chapter 1002 - Luffy attacks Kaido

Immense is the obstacle before the next generation yet impossible is something it is not. Unbeknownst to the Yonko before them, the conviction behind the next generation’s acts carries the belief and capability that a possibility which should be improbable is entirely within reach. And in no small part is the underestimation of their abilities playing a part in seeing the pillars of the New World toppled. The Yonko have continually looked down on their younger rivals allowing for a blindspot within the Yonko’s perception of possibility to conjure itself. The lack of expectation and belief the Yonko have in their opponents capabilities will ultimately lead to their eventual downfall.

One Piece Chapter 1001 – The Path To Be King Of The Pirates

One Piece chapter 1001 - The new generation stands against the two Yonko

The new generation of Pirates who dared challenge the powers of the New World sea have now come face to face with the existences embodying such power. Rejecting the expectation of fear and refusing to bend under the strain of hopelessness, the five warriors choose a path of freedom. Even with the awareness of the enemies strength central in their mind, their belief in their own capabilities and the desire to fight for their dreams overwhelms any doubt weighing them down. The battle to decide the fate of Wano Kuni has begun. And the path leading the way to becoming King of the Pirates has started to be constructed. How will Kaido be defeated? And who else will join in on the battle against the Yonko?

One Piece Chapter 997 – Kaido, The Strongest

One Piece chapter 997 - Kaido lifts Onigashima Island up into the sky with his flame clouds

The shadow of destruction. The reflection of uncontrollable. The terror of possibility. The dragon of chaos. And the strongest creature there is. It took a while to get their but we finally begin to see what makes Kaido so OVERWHELMING. A distinct force that staggers any who seek to stand before him. Implausibility reckoned within mortal form. Now, with the plan in motion, Onigashima trembles.

One Piece Chapter 995 – The Phoenix, The Mink, The Marine And The Kunoichi

One Piece chapter 995 - The allies of the Straw Hat Pirates

Aside from the events transpiring within the Live Floor with the Ice Oni plague and against Ulti and Page One, the rest of chapter focused primarily on the allies the Straw Hat Pirates have accumulated over their journey. Each of the allies highlighted within the past few chapters have been positioned at integral areas to assist the Straw Hat Pirates within this war. The allies that have yet to make reappearances such as Law and Kid will appear in moments when the Straw Hat Pirates look to be overwhelmed i.e. when Luffy faces off against Kaido. At present though, Marco is looking to prevent Big Mom from stopping the Straw Hat Pirates. Carrot and Wanda have engaged Perospero with the intent to defeat him. Drake is targeting Apoo who holds the “antibody” for the Ice Oni plague. And Tama has arrived to save Nami and Usopp from the attacks of Ulti and Page One. Each of the allies didn’t have to fight alongside the Straw Hat Pirates but they have all chosen to. Such is the attraction of the Straw Hat Pirates and in particular, their captain, Monkey D. Luffy.

One Piece Chapter 994 – Yamato And Momonosuke

One Piece chapter 994 - Yamato determined to protect the Kozuki clan

Express your resolve and shout it out loud. For twenty long years, this moment has permeated in the depths of Yamato’s mind. Regret at her inability, frustration at her weakness and self-reproach for not being able to save Momonosuke whom she thought had died on that day twenty years ago. Now with his presence before her, Yamato gathers all those feelings alongside her conviction inspired by the spirit of Oden and declares her position to both Momonosuke and the Beast Pirates. She was not strong enough twenty years but in this moment, she will bear the weight of the Beast Pirates against her and challenge death itself if the need arises in order to protect Momonosuke and the dream the Kozuki family embody.
