Oden Kozuki Flashback Comes to End
One Piece chapter 972 was easily one of the legendary chapters of One Piece because it showed us how Oden Kozuki died. Oden was able to survive the boiling for over sixty minutes which should have been enough to save the lives of Oden Kozuki and his companions but at the last moment, Kurozumi Orochi changed the rules of the execution unfairly yet again. He changed the boiling execution into a shooting one.
As soon as Oden Kozuki realised this, he threw his companions away all at once with all the strength he had left. He asked them to honour him by surviving and opening the gates of Wano Kuni to the entire world.
Kaidou then shot Oden Kozuki and killed him. Oden’s wife Toki found a letter in which Oden asked her to send his companions into the future using her power, Toki tore up the letter while getting emotional.
Now, this is how Oden Kozuki’s flashback ended. Now, from the next chapter, we’ll get to see the present timeline continuing. Kurozumi Orochi has cut off almost all the ways by which rebels can reach Oden’s castle, how will Luffy and others reunite? What will happen in One Piece chapter 973?
