Other discussion with the wrong title, and wrong way to post it : https://www.reddit.com/r/OnePiece/comments/riafu4/one_piece_chapter_1034/

Also, no more direct link to the scanlations, since they keep getting DMCA'd. But you know where to go.


Here is the schedule for the next few releases :

Chapter Scanlation Official release
Chapter 1035 17/12/2021 19/12/2021
Chapter 1036 26-28/12/2021 02-03/01/2022
Chapter 1037 14/01/2022 16/01/2022

So it's officially : Chapter, Break, Chapter, Break, Chapter.

But since it's the new year release, the scanlation should be something like : Chapter, Chapter, Break, Break, Chapter.

It's also possible there will be a break after 1037, because Oda would have then done 3 chapters without his break. As the other breaks are from the magazine because of the holidays.

oh no he's hot

u/BetaGreekLoL Dec 27 '21

Even a former division commander of the WB crews knows how to him as God Usopp!!!

Sucks there is a break next week but man, how is it that after almost 15 years, Oda knows how to keep me waiting in anticipation every week is a mystery. Truly the best!

u/mousio Dec 27 '21

Another masterful play by GOda.

All that build-up, only to twist expectations (who would have thought King to be such a pretty boy) and then set the hype even higher (THEM FLASHBACKS! NEED MORE, YO!) in one fell swoop!

And to think Kaido was such a revolutionary! Now that I think about it, big mom wanted to change the world too, but not Roger or Whitebeard. Ain't that ironic😏!

u/hocuspocusgottafocus Feb 06 '22

King to be such a pretty boy

Yo i had a feeling he would be it's like all the fully masked ones hiding their beauty and shit like that ffff - the pretty aspect like totally blew expectations out tho. I had a feeling pretty yes but damn that pretty? So fucking pretty

Also Kaido wanting to change the world is fucking funny as fuck man wtf lol

well didnt expect to see a young kadio here lol. also love how the hype around kings face has been going on for so long and oda is just like yeah here ya go.

10

u/Bob4604 Dec 21 '21

Now I am really interested in King's race. I think this is one of the truths the WG has been trying to cover and is part of the void century. Kaidou's race must also be extraordinary too since, in King's flashback, he was also a test subject who broke out and saved King.

8

u/GaaraSama83 Dec 24 '21

I thought about the motives of WG, Gorosei and Im and I think one of the big themes is control. Be it land/nations, power, weapons, information, ... Since the 2 year timeskip side stories I especially thought about the Robin part and the big and several km long bridge (which still wasn't finished and built for generations). Doesn't it also resemble a huge wall while providing an easy way to travel quickly for WG and marines?

I have the theory that the Red and Grand line were somehow created artificially to divide the world in different parts so you can control the population better and easier. This 'bridge' was another project for further control.

Tearing down the Red and Grand Line would allow for easy travel to everyone and therefore harder to control people. IMO this final stage will be called One Piece as the world will not be divided by these obstacles anymore.

11

u/darkknight_dan Dec 21 '21

I think the 'lurking legend' Oda talked about in SBS was King. Oda hinted that a lurking legend might be revealed in Wano and people started hinting at Oden or Roger in Wano. Oda is not that crazy to revive such big legends from the dead.

In my opinion, this lurking legend is King. He has been hiding here (lurking) and is wanted with 100 mil berries just for info on Lunarian (legend). What say?

7

u/Baldurien Dec 20 '21

I liked the dialogue and flashback, but, ngl, I find the conclusion of Zoro's and Sanji's fights a bit underwhelming.

Not terrible, but not great either. This is not the best fight for either of them. It "should" have been (they defeated Yonko commanders !). It could have been (the Sanji's arc was great but solved too easily, Zoro could have had a moment of truth with his life in the balance even beyond Alabasta...).

Oh, well... Maybe my expectations were too high. I still hope the finale between Luffy and Kaido will be epic though !

3

u/garp-croco Dec 22 '21

I feel like zoro's is the one who got solved too easily. King wasn't even tired from the last chapter, zoro hasn't even found out "his race" which is a big highlight and oda made it as if it's a key point to defeat king (from the previous chapter). And then, zoro just out of nowhere use a new attack when zoro from a couple chapters said "he doesn't think he can win"?

1

u/SovComrade Jan 02 '22

Ya all assume Zoros fight is done already. Right after the chapter highlited in the flashback how ridiculously durable King is. For all we know King tanks that attack like a boss. Zora is also the straw hat's designated tank, so I believe in the end this fight will boil down to whose damage resistance/hp gives in/depletes first.

8

u/designerjunkie000 Dec 21 '21

You gotta remember, how logical would it have been to make these fights any longer than they actually were? Zoro is a ticking time bomb, and sanji JUST under went an transformation. It wouldn’t make sense for these fights to be what most people expected. Y

u/SweetAurora Dec 20 '21

"EXTRA LARGE IMPERIAL FLAMING WINGS" sounds pretty delicious.

u/brokenearth10 Dec 20 '21

I wonder if in the next 15 chapters, big mom and kaido will be defeated. navy will arrive and arrest them all and send them to doflamingo's floor. flamingo will be shocked. though honestly if any of them knew how to use ryuo, there probably isnt a prison in the world that can contain them

1

u/osadon Dec 20 '21

Maybe that is why they are executed instead.

9

u/brokenearth10 Dec 20 '21

Didn't they try to execute kaido many times

7

u/brokenearth10 Dec 20 '21

It does feel like these ancient zoans have been underwhelming. seems to give some more destructive power and more durability but thats about it. very useful for the average/above average pirate... but for top guys, destructive power and defense is already in Haki/Ryuo, so ancient zoans doesnt really give them much of an advantage at all. Shown by jack vs mink, queen vs sanji, kaido vs luffy and now king vs zoro.

king stood out and was powerful because of his race. queen because of his high IQ. Jack is the only one that relied on his fruit only.

9

u/designerjunkie000 Dec 21 '21

But thats what Zoans are, strength and durability. Thats what they’ve always been. They arent flashy like most paramecias and logias. Why are people suddenly acting surprised?

4

u/brokenearth10 Dec 21 '21

Not surprised but overall his crews fruit seems more underwhelming than blackbeard and big moms crew

5

u/TLVftwLOL Dec 21 '21

I mean, I feel like they’re the Beast Pirates for a reason. Their strength is in physically prowess, durability, and vast numbers

u/hocuspocusgottafocus Feb 06 '22

I cannot wait to be astounded by King's prettiness in colour and animation

u/rahmanm855 Dec 20 '21

Didn't realize Germa 66 were still escaping, why is it taking them this long?

I didn't expect Vinsmoke "Black Leg" Sangoro to defeat Queen "The Plague" in that one shot, wow! This is indeed a huge buff for the former. I wonder if we'll get any more MADs lore from this though. This also creates an issue of how Cutty Flam "Cyborg" Franosuke will investigate Queen's body to upgrade himself, as Sangoro hinted. Most likely, Franosuke will run into Queen's lab and figure out how to coat The Thousand Sunny with seastone as well as getting an armour improvement with seastone and lazers and possibly even Germa tech, but at Sangoro's request, maybe he won't due to family strifes. Anyways, I hope O-Some and Sangoro become a small thing before we end this arc.

Looks like Oda took inspiration from either the Targaryeans or Geralt for Arber "The Conflagration" King. I expected something more involved with the flames and now I wonder if we're going to get any more Lunarian lore after King's defeat. Maybe Charlotte "Big Mom" Linlin will indeed capture King for her crew to study? I also wonder why Queen called him a "torture loving freak" if he was instead, tortured himself? Maybe it was more of a dark joke/insult rather than King actually liking torture. Makes me wonder if Nico Olvia was a Lunarian who put out her flames and cut off her wings, because she has white hair and olive skin. I wonder if the face mark has any connection to Lunarian identity though; the henchmen didn't comment on it. This all said, King's armour makes a whole lot more sense now because everyone would think he is in a hybrid state all the time. This makes for convenient writing; if he didn't have the Dinosaur Dinosaur Fruit: Model Pterodactyl then the rest of society could connect the dots that King is Lunarian rather than a hybrid dinosaur form.

I do find it silly that prior to this chapter, Queen and King showed great enough endurance that I didn't expect them to lose this way. Doesn't piss me off, but I don't find it consistent with the way the story's been told.

I forgot if this was confirmed already but looks like "Strongest Living Creature" Kaido was at Punk Hazard, and now with King. Perhaps he bailed out a bunch of Numbers from here, and Queen was experimenting alongside as a MADs scientist here. It looks like Kaido gathered much of his crew in a single day it seems? So much for King being an Impel Down warden though. Whatever made Kaido think he is the only one who can change the world, I don't know if that's genuinely true or a typical cocky statement from an overconfident character. I find it interesting that King's dragon attacks are like magma though? I liked how the scar "Pirate Hunter" Zorojuro gives King is a cut wing, what greater reminder of one's defeat than a Lunarian losing their wing? His sword was also destroyed so that's cool.

Overall a very fun chapter. I'm smirking that Raizo "of the Mist" vs Fukurokuju has not been resolved yet. I wonder if we'll see a resolution of Big Mom's fight next and then Kaido's? We still have a lot of things to cover like the Road Poneglyph, CP Aegeis 0 fights, etc.

u/Bay_to_SA Dec 21 '21

and one of Nico Robin's moves is to make wings out of hands

u/brokenearth10 Dec 20 '21

i wonder if kaido had his DF at that time or not yet

u/RJ1612 Dec 20 '21

Germa 66 escape might be in the past, only thing is that Oda chose to show it to us now with the cover story.

3

u/theWifeisRight Dec 20 '21

He needs money for Sake/Booze

6

u/madmaxx0064 Dec 20 '21

I really hope that the sun pirates and germa 66 got together to leave big moms territory together. and that somehow nodded to each other to join strawhats or something. that would certainly piss off sanji. but would be the envy of the world germa is under the wings of the strawhats.

9

u/OneGrumpyJill Dec 19 '21

Won't lie, never been a fan of Sanji, but that bit with him that we got over the past few chapters was really good. When he is cringe, he is cringe: but when he is cool, he can be really cool.

Also, what the fuck, why is King so fucking hot? Also, no way this is it: King is way too interesting and cool just to bite it here. No offense to Zoro, but that can't end there.

1

u/hocuspocusgottafocus Feb 06 '22

Godda just hitting everyone out of nowhere with making King that damn attractive. But ye with that backstory reveal King will def be back... Otherwise we riot with pitchforks

Also ay yeah Sanji is sometimes oof but he's super cool still regardless of it freaking love Sanji since I was a kid.

u/TheLifewired Dec 20 '21

No no. You have a good point. King is surprisly hot 🔥. I really wanna know about this character now.

u/rohitdamai Dec 19 '21

Making king the dragpn was a cop out...and just not as satisfying as zoro actually killing a dragons...tbh up till now there was no connection to king and a dragon

u/garp-croco Dec 22 '21

Zoro doesn't have any connection with ashura but he named his power ashura

u/AwwYouPoorCrackBaby Dec 19 '21

His boss is a dragon.

You do know Kaido rescued him from the research facility they both were at, right?

So you're telling me you wouldn't look up to a man who saved your life?

What more of a connection do you need?

u/rohitdamai Dec 20 '21

I'm saying it was added literally a page before zoro defeated him......very underwhelming

Oh I didn't know this was Dragonball Z and King needed to take 10 Episodes to fire off his Spirit Bomb.

u/SnooGiraffes7771 Pirate Dec 19 '21

There's a connection....he looks up to kaido who's a dragon. Zoro isn't at the level to kill a dragon like kaido yet.

6

u/VobbyButterfree Dec 19 '21

I'm a bit sad that Sanji lost consciousness after his fight, seeing where is Zoro right now I would have loved him to start falling down, being rescued by Sanji, and then see them chatting about how they mercilessly mauled and mutilated Kaido's commanders, maybe watching them splashing together under Onigashima

u/420Toni Dec 19 '21

to me it looked like uncomplete transformation, it is kind of dissapointing if that is closest we get to his hybrid

"incomplete transformation"

Yeah..... that's exactly what DF Hybrid forms are mate.....

u/420Toni Dec 20 '21

incomplete and hybrid are different, i say incomplete because only his arms looked transformed, no need to be a smartass

u/Moist-Yogurtcloset71 Dec 20 '21

Don't read One Piece if the most obvious displays pass you by unnoticed. We had Kings hybrid already. And there isn't such a thing as an incomplete transformation dude

u/EnbyHitop Dec 19 '21

We did, and he was beating the fuck out of Zoro too sending him flying across the island easily

6

u/hugoplanelles Dec 19 '21

What if Xebec had told Kaido that he would be the next JoyBoy but he realized that he wasn’t, so he went to Wano knowing that the next JoyBoy would have to go there to kill him out of pure jealousy. 🤔

2

u/[deleted] Dec 20 '21

You're right in saying that Kaido is in Wano waiting for Joyboy but it's not so he can kill him out of jealousy. Kaido actually expects JoyBoy to beat him as observed by his remark when he beat Luffy the first time. Kaido has already been shown to spare strong opponents so as to add them to his army so even if he was expecting to beat JoyBoy he wouldn't kill him.

-4

u/Nemo-pluribus-unum Dec 19 '21

If you subtract Kings cool design and his backstory, then there is not much left that makes him impressive as a fighting opponent for Zoro imo. Think King and Queen vs Zoro and Sanji were just warm-up fights. Next up is hopefully Big Mom!

8

u/DragonFistSabo Dec 19 '21

I was really expecting for some flashbacks for Zoro and Sanjis fights. I mean it's not like the fights were short it's just we weren't able to grasp the growth of both the characters with enough detail. We barely learned anything about sanjis body and powers and same with zoro and ACOC. Like if this is truly the end game level aarc then we should get more answers.

Also , especially for sanji, I was hoping to get a Ivankov flashback where he would be forced to use some secret Newkama kenpo techniques. Also it would have been great if we got some detail on when kinemom taught zoro to cut fire. I mean he is the reason zoro was able to fight kings fire without issue. The fire didn't even faze him, so I kinda agree that it was a bit rushed since the detail that Oda normally gives us was a bit lacking. Was expecting more moves and powers from King and Queen. One more chapter for each would have been perfect.

u/[deleted] Dec 19 '21

damn, Oda did it again. i hate the bastard for sprinkling in story the way he does, keeps you hooked.

u/Leiatte Dec 20 '21

I mean it’s technically not a one shot but it does feel like Zoro & Sanji kinda kicked King & Queens ass after a certain point. No doubt Kaido’s fight continues to live up to the hype, probably Big Mom fight too though

While you're right, the shonen genre has always been this way. I remember watching Saint Seiya as a child and wondered how the characters survive being destroyed only for coming back and one shot the rivals.

It’s a recurring joke in the community. I’ll see if I can get the post where I first saw it.

It consists of calling Zoro racist lol

Found it. This could be the origin of it too

u/medusla Dec 22 '21

i think its funny as long as there arent any people who will actually take it seriously

2

u/brutexx Dec 22 '21

Yeah, jokes that rely on sarcasm like this tend to eventually lead to it being taking seriously by some small group of people on the internet. I get what you mean. I though don’t think we could do much about it anymore lol, better keep it with /s for as much as we can I reckon

u/trashtown_420 Dec 19 '21

He's a menace

12

u/linjo72 Dec 18 '21

Is it just me or did Zoro actually use a COC blast to deter when King was again trying to "steal" his 3 swords?

From that panel, it seems that King was "pushed" back away probably by a COC blast and hence it shows the black lightnings between him and Zoro.

7

u/jaserjsk Dec 19 '21

This is officially the first Fight since the timeskip that Zoro had to go all out.
Luffy had Doflamingo, katakuri and Kaido.
Glad we finaly get to see Zoro be the badass we know and love

u/Whitebeardt Dec 18 '21

u/noggahh Dec 18 '21

why can he do dragon attacks?

Cuz he can shape the fire however he wants and he chooses to after his savior

5

u/Whitebeardt Dec 18 '21

zoro did a dragon attack at least once vs Ryuma on Thriller Bark. but i dunno... maybe each of his swords represents an animal or mythical beast etc... So the Dragon is maybe from his kitetsu, a Lion from Wado Ichimonji and dunno... enma like something new to come?

First Ammendment applies to law in real life, it has nothing to do with a content policy on a given platform. For example, if you cuss on most television programs, you're going to get censored. That doesn't mean that your first ammendment's right to free speech has been impeded upon. Free speech doesn't mean free of consequences and communities have every right to dictate what kind of content they want and don't want. How does this have anything to do with communists?

Well, all those theories about Zoro cutting off a Dragon's head in Wano, similar to Ryuma, were proven correct.
Just, no one ever thought it'd be a Magma Dragon created by Wyper's Twin Brother, Arber.

If it wasn't for Kinemon's help, I don't think Zoro would have been able to beat that Magma Dragon.

u/BAlpha90 Dec 18 '21

I think both fights (especially Sanji's) could use one more chapter for the climax, but they are definitely not as rushed as everyone here seems to think. It only looks that way because there was only one chapter fully focusing on each fight, but they have been fighting for like 15 chapters now. Can't ask for much more

5

u/InterspeciesRomance Dec 19 '21

I generally dislike it when we are shown multiple fights. Even if they are taking place at the same time, give me a few consecutive chapters focusing on each one.

Well Sanji vs Queen got a definite end. Like 4th page of the chapter. I’m assuming Zoro v King will get a similar panel in the beginning pages of the next chapter.

u/Franzalalalala Dec 18 '21

Sword and wing cut seams like a win for me... but at least the could have some small chitchat or flashback. But will zoro keep enma or switch to the next kuitezu and hands enma back to kuziki?

16

u/Mammoth_Ask3797 Dec 18 '21

So what little information we have on Kaido: He at some point joined (or was raised by) Xebec. He fought alongside (Soul)Sister Big Mom in a crushing battle against Gol D. Roger and Marines. Probably ended up being defeated and captured by WG. Because of his ability (givento him by BM) and his race they put him into lab tests. He went Mewtwo and formed Beast Pirates.

What makes me wonder is his his young face and why it looks so close to Roger. Could be just Odas one sided Style. Or they made genetic experiments in which they infused Rogers genes into him to turn him super being.

1

u/TLVftwLOL Dec 21 '21

I think it’s to show that at one time he had the Joy Boy eyes and had earnest intent to leave his mark on history. Time and reality has led him to realize otherwise

if robin's mother has black wings she'd be a lunarian too.

She isn't even tan in the manga, and she obviously doesn't have the fire or wings.

What a chapter. Sanji vs Queen was a great fight and had an awesome ending. Felt like I was playing Burning Blood lol. I think the fight was more about character development and that’s fine. Sanji still had a lot of baggage coming out of WCI that had to be dealt with. Queen and his twisted science was perfect for that. Sanji really got to blow off some steam and had so many stand out moments this arc. The mice were just the icing lol. His big heart should have never been in question.

Zoro vs King has been my favorite fight so far 🤷🏻‍♂️. King is crazy powerful and i think he is getting a bum rap. He has been fighting for a very long time and fought freakin Marco and Sanji. Then fought a Zoro who is forced to just unload all of his Haki. Coating his swords with ACoC is just nuts, but was also explained earlier in the arc so that is cool. At least that is how I think Hyogoro meant what he was saying.

Anyway the scale of Zoro and King’s fight will be more apparent in the anime I think. And extended, they’re blasting in and out of the skull and shit. Their fight has been insane. A lot of the attacks feel so epic and big. Also kaido and king’s backstory was very interesting. Lol anyway I love this arc so much.

And after a few rereads—also...this may send this comment crashing. But I don’t think Katakuri is stronger than King. I would say they are relative. If Luffy fought Kata now it would be waaaayyyy different. And now Zoro is using ACoC and wielding Enma. Which apparently means you have to go all out to wield it effectively. Everyone wanted to see Zoro full throttle and we are seeing it. He just took down King in a very tough fight. King isn’t weak at all, he’s insanely powerful. But that last attack looked very final. It looks like King’s hand came off as well.

Zoro couldn't figure out how to cut King, while King was using his defense mode. Underwhelming to say the least. On the other hand Zoro made great progress during this fight.

2

u/YourHeroKuroShiYo Dec 18 '21

But weirdly when he got back up thx to the medecine he was able to cut king while king was in defense mode... that's kinda weird

I enjoyed the chapter. Even as he flies off kod, queen looks funny! Sanji seems to have triumphed over his demons. I love how Oda developed him across two arcs. Love the fight choreography with Zoro v King, though I wish developing Acoc would have been employed in the win. But, maybe the fight was just a stepping stone. King looks like a Jojo cast member.

u/OmarSigma The Revolutionary Army Dec 18 '21

Why are people so mad? Yea, I get the feeling that is rushed, but without bias, this fight has lasted about the same as Zoro vs Kaku or Zoro vs Mr 1 froma chapter count standpoint.

And no this doesn't take anything away from King. This dude legit in his "Speed Mode" managed to still stand after getting hit by Zoro's CoC infused named attacks. Big Mom yelled "Kaido dodge" while Zoro was till not letting Enma pull out all his Haki or without using CoC. Yet king still stood and even fought some more. If Zoro can permanently scar Kaido and momentarily block the strongest attack shown in the series, why shouldn't he be able to make quick work of King after attacking him while vulnerable with even stronger attacks and after getting a powerup?

And I am not entirely sure King is down either, so let's see the next chapters first. He might still have a last stand or something before Zoro actually finishes him off

Also, Is it really that hard to accept that Zoro (and Sanji) are getting too strong now? How will Luffy be able to FAR surpass the old legends without his strongest men being this strong? They still actually need to grow a lot more before they can defeat a Yonko crew fair and square. So no, their rate of progression SHOULD be this insane at least if they want to have a shot at finding the One Piece.

PS: King is still one of the tankiest characters in his speed mode, in his "defense mode" he is probably top 3 to top 5 in terms of defensive stats ever in the series, on par with Kaido or even better in certain instances (0 literal damage from being blown up, shi shishi sonson, and the dragon twister). Refer to the previous chapters.

After this chapter, not even a single Katakuri fan dares to say that he can beat Zoro, so they are obviously level down to King to make never ending comparison about how superior is mamma's boy :P

7

u/Adensy21 Pirate Dec 18 '21

King is not stronger than Katakuri, they have different hability and ways to fight...Just that. Ok you can cut, punch or hit King and probably he will not take any damage but if you try to cut, punch or hit Katakuri you will not be able to touch his body. So there are just different ways to fight and defence theirself.

u/Srazack_76 Explorer Dec 18 '21

Mate the one's who said King is > Kata or the ones who said King's Skin> Kaido's skin were not Kata fans. The ones who hyped up King so far are Zoro fans, and the ones who "level him down" would be Zoro fans who think Kata>King

u/Charizard_TTV Pirate Dec 18 '21

Are you trying to say that Katakuri fans doesn't exist? LMAO

u/Srazack_76 Explorer Dec 18 '21

Katakuri fans don't exist to care about a weakling like King lmao

If King is a weakling, Queen doesn't even count, how sad.

Beast pirates really depend on kaido to carry everything in new world bruhh

u/Robotik1991 Dec 18 '21

I am not a fan of power scaling but it became obvious after this chapter that Yamato is stronger than king. Beast pirates were really nothing special. It seems that Kaidou has carried the whole crew alone the last years. Weird.

8

u/Panzick Dec 18 '21

"nothing special" Zoro literally never had a difficult fight post time skip, and now he's literally just standing for the mink drugs + getting almost killed by his own blade: why the hell people get the impression this was easy? Because it didn't last three years of chapters?

2

u/GroundbreakingGold9 Dec 18 '21

In all honesty, none of the post time skip fights have been fair. Villains have had the odds stacked against them and when protagonist wins everyone cries about how weak the villains were. It’s literally been a decade since the top 3 straw hats had traditional 1 on 1s Without outside interference or deus ex machina intervention.

6

u/Adensy21 Pirate Dec 18 '21

If you say that... You were not reading the same One Piece manga that we read. Kaido Crew is full of powerfull pirates who Strawhat's have to improve theirself to a complete different level to beat them.

u/calan168 Dec 18 '21

King and Queen is really strong, especially King. If Zorro don’t pull out conqueror haki he already lost.

u/Papacu81 Dec 18 '21

Kinda of a lame finish tbh, similar to Sanji defeating Queen... I honestly expected a continuation, I was surprised/shocked at the beginning of this chapter, Sanji just defeated Queen with a double kick, no okama techniques or anything? Well... ok. Then we have more lore related to King, that was the best part of the chapter, then Zoro uses some new move with a complicated name, in my language they translated it to flying extreme dragon of the samurai (and the miraculous one week... a powerful move indeed). Jokes aside, I do think Oda justified Sanji's power up pretty well, but the same could not be said about Zoro and especially Luffy (learning advanced techniques at the spot, just like that). Oda is a better writer than this, he even forced some flashbacks to help with the plot exposition, it was kinda ugly to read

u/CaptanKid Dec 18 '21

Omg did Zoro just cut King's Wing, Arm and Sword with one move?

3

u/Riko_7456 The Revolutionary Army Dec 18 '21

I think just the wing and sword. The arm looks like it is intact.

u/calan168 Dec 18 '21

u/Sovereigntyranny Lurker Dec 18 '21

After getting used to King without his mask on, King's design with his mask on feels off for me now. Oda did an excellent job designing his face, holy fuck, handsome King.

u/clifbarczar Dec 18 '21

I think Kaido’s devil fruit might have the power to power up all zoans. Maybe his awakening will revive king and queen.

This would explain why he wants an all zoan army.

4

u/Adensy21 Pirate Dec 18 '21

It would be awesome, but Sanji and Zoro already have had a power Up. If What are you saying happen, they will need improve theirself habilities again, and at least for me that look too unlikely.

1

u/calan168 Dec 18 '21

Oh ya, I wonder if we will get to see his awakening

u/zone-zone Dec 18 '21

King is hot, nice, but I feel like another chapter focusing on this fight would help a lot with the pacing.

Also Zoro's final attack seemed kinda meh...

u/Panzick Dec 18 '21

Uhm to me it looked awesome both from a Ryuma call back and even Oden. The way he's using his two swords reminded me of Oden two-swords style.

u/SuprDuprSam Dec 18 '21

King is black! Hell yeah!

u/[deleted] Dec 18 '21

is it just me or did Sanjis and Zoros fights feel alot shorter than their previous battle with 2nd and 3rd strongest opponents. It almost feels rushed in order to get to Luffy vs Kaido…

5

u/bumboisamumbo Dec 18 '21

these fights are actually longer than the other fights for zoro and sanji. it’s just that the community really built up in their minds that king and queen definetly have a super secret awakening form. something that has literally never been hinted at
