We finally have One Piece 1099 spoilers and a full summary. The last released chapter shows us what is the ultimate fate of Ginny, which is also one of the most tragic and heartbreaking events of the story so far. However, at the same time, we have also discovered some hints of the upcoming hiatus of the series.
When the upcoming chapter opens up, we see another reader’s request for cover images. With this, we see that there are three tanukis that are sitting on Oden’s hair.
After Kuma overthrew King Bekori for burning villages, the people begged Kuma to become the new king even though he didn’t want the job. Kuma reluctantly accepted the royal title but chose to keep living modestly in his church instead of the palace.
Since Kuma didn’t know much about ruling a kingdom, former King Bulldog ended up taking over most of the real work as an advisor. Meanwhile, news spread about Sorbet Kingdom’s sudden change in power. This surprised Saint Saturn all the way to Mary Geoise.
Around the same time, Bonney happened to find and accidentally eat the Toshi Toshi no Mi fruit hidden somewhere in Sorbet. When she transformed instantly into an adult, everyone who knew young Bonney was shocked because they mistook her for being Miss Ginny.
So while Kuma remained king in name and Bulldog managed the kingdom affairs, Bonney adjusted to her new, unexpected powers. Sorbet began recovering under this unusual leadership arrangement born out of rebellion and circumstance.

King Bulldog paid a visit to Kuma at his church, bringing along his elderly mother, Conney. While they were there, Bonney practiced transforming back and forth using Conney as a model.
After multiple tries, young Bonney’s form eventually resembled Conney to a tee. This led to a comical scene where people kept mistaking Bonney and Conney for one another.
Unfortunately, Bulldog also brought troubling news. The ousted King Bekori had now convinced the World Government that Kuma had unjustly seized power.
King Bekori Is Back
According to Bekori’s version of events, he was the victim of an evil usurper bent on ruling the Sorbet Kingdom through force. As a result, the Marines agreed to help Bekori retake the kingdom by military means.
Realizing the situation was untenable, Kuma decided he would have to definitively stop Bekori’s ambitions once and for all, even though it likely meant he could no longer safely remain in Sorbet afterward.
Before leaving to confront Bekori, Kuma entrusted the stewardship of the kingdom to Bulldog. He asked Bulldog to take Bonney into the royal castle and make sure she avoided exposure to natural light from then on.
Kuma set out to confront Bekori, finding him aboard a Marine fleet out at sea. When Bekori commanded the Marines to kill Kuma, calling him a tyrannical usurper, Kuma sank the entire fleet single-handedly. Bekori’s ultimate fate remained unclear.
With the Marines now considering him extremely dangerous, Kuma fled and took to piracy. He quickly developed fearsome nicknames and an immense bounty due to displays of his strength, although the exact amount was undisclosed.
Bonny wants to be a pirate
Back in the Sorbet Kingdom, Bonney resided safely in the castle under Conney’s care. Though just a child, Bonney boldly declared that once she turned 10 years old, she would set out to become a pirate just like her father Kuma.
The kingdom remained in Bulldog’s capable hands. Despite Kuma’s necessary exile, his loved ones were protected and his homeland was stable thanks to the unusual transition of power brought about by Kuma’s brief but impactful rule.
In hopes of curing Bonney’s illness, Kuma embarked on a worldwide journey seeking answers. He visited all the locations where he had sent the Straw Hats during the Sabaody incident, questioning the inhabitants.
This included meeting with the people of Torino Kingdom, the scientists of Weatheria, and Heracles in the Boin Archipelago.
Even former bounty hunters Abdullah and Jeet tried apprehending Kuma for his bounty, but he swiftly defeated them.
Kuma’s travels eventually brought him to the Revolutionary Army’s ship Wind Granma, where he reunited with Dragon amidst the current Revolutionary Commanders.
Dragon informed Kuma that Ivankov and Inazuma had been captured and imprisoned. After serving as king, alleged tyrant, and now pirate, Kuma conferred with his revolutionary allies.
Among them, Belo Betty asked Kuma for permission to become Commander of the East Army. Dragon refused to appoint anyone without Kuma’s approval first.
So Betty sought Kuma’s favor in hopes of finally attaining the commander position she desired.
Dragon talked to Kuma about Vegapunk
Dragon updated Kuma about Dr. Vegapunk. He said he never actually recommended meeting Vegapunk before since accessing him in Punk Hazard was impossible.
However, the recent catastrophic lab explosion caused by Caesar Clown forced Vegapunk to relocate his facilities before fully reestablishing defenses. Dragon urged that now was the opportune time for Kuma to finally consult him.
Kuma replied that if he managed to cure Bonney, he would gladly return to fight alongside his revolutionary comrades once again. Dragon enigmatically encouraged him to “leave fate to the blow of the wind” as always.
Meanwhile, back in the Sorbet Kingdom, Bonney rigorously trained her fighting skills, soon able to defeat adults in hand-to-hand combat despite reverting to a child’s body.
When Kuma later returned to see Bonney, he smuggled her concealed in a box to avoid notice.
They arrived at Egghead, the winter island where Vegapunk had hastily set up his new lab.
While Vegapunk and Kuma discussed potential treatments, Bonney played outside in the snow with a youthful Sentomaru, not yet the stern Marine he’d later become under the Professor’s tutelage.
Kuma meets Vegapunk
Vegapunk informed Kuma that curing Bonney was possible using an advanced cell transplant procedure not yet seen in hospitals due to its complexity and high cost of development, akin to creating cyborgs.
Upon testing Kuma’s blood, however, Vegapunk was shocked to discover indications of Lineage Factor modifications.
He questioned why a pirate like Kuma would risk meeting a lead Government scientist. Kuma replied he trusted in Dragon’s judgment.
When asked how his blood differed from human blood, Vegapunk admitted there was insufficient sample data to provide clear explanations currently.
In a startling proposition, Vegapunk then offered to cure Bonney for free if Kuma agreed to serve as the host for an army of clones he wished to create.
Though wary, Kuma vowed to accept any condition necessary for Bonney’s health. He cautiously asked what purpose the clones would serve.
Vegapunk eagerly revealed his vision of clones becoming Marine soldiers, engineered with laser beam weapons to defeat pirates as well as durable body shielding to protect civilians.
He tried persuading Kuma it was a noble cause for the greater good.
Saint Saturn was spying on Vegapunk and Kuma
Meanwhile, in Mary Geoise, Saint Saturn eavesdropped surreptitiously on the conversation between Kuma and Vegapunk, unbeknownst to either.
Amused by Vegapunk’s shortsightedness, Saturn mused that the scientist failed to recognize the immense potential of this opportunity.
Turning over ideas privately, Saturn conceived a very different plan to utilize Kuma and Vegapunk’s proposed clones.
Back on Egghead, when Kuma declared he would agree to any conditions if the clones might save people’s lives, Vegapunk enthusiastically labeled him a saint.
However, Kuma demurred, stating he was merely a “Pacifista” – using the Japanese term “heiwa shugi-sha” meaning “pacifist.”
Intrigued by the term, Vegapunk proposed embracing “Pacifista” as the designation for their forthcoming cloned creations.
Believing these clones could become heroic “warriors of the future” defending justice, Vegapunk continued extolling his vision to the receptive Kuma.
All the while, Saint Saturn made silent calculations, developing an altogether different conception of how Pacifista technology could be exploited by the World Government’s hidden interests.
Recap and Review
Chapter 1098 reveals the heartbreaking fate of Ginny after being kidnapped years ago. We learn she contracted a rare, disfiguring disease called Sapphire Scale during her horrific captivity – which hardens skin into blue, rock-like scales upon light exposure.
Eventually released but unrecognizable from the advanced illness, Ginny returns to the Sorbet Kingdom but keeps her condition hidden from Bonney to spare her adopted daughter more trauma.
Instead, Ginny makes an emotional final visit to the church where she once stayed with Kuma, bidding farewell to her Revolutionary Army comrades over a den den mushi call.
Though her face is not shown, we feel the shock and grief of her allies, especially Kuma, who vows to rush to Ginny’s side, thinking they have lost her forever.
This is a painfully poignant scene about a tragic character coming back solely to say goodbye after immense, undeserved suffering over the years.
Kuma teleports to the Sorbet Kingdom upon pinpointing Ginny’s location but heartbreakingly arrives too late. She has already quietly succumbed to the terminal Sapphire Scale disease, leaving only grief in her stead.
