Wano country arc will continue with the Samurai’s infiltrating Onigashima in One Piece episode 989. The last episode of the anime saw yet another smooth progress for the Onigashima raid as Luffy and his group created a successful distraction on the live floor. We also got to see the extent of Apoo’s powers, but for Queen, he is still his usual playful self and takes it as a game. Meanwhile, the Tobiroppo continues their search for the apparent Kadio’s son as he would refer to him. Knowing Kaidou, he is only taking advantage of his power-hungry Tobiroppo with the promise of a spot as one of the All-Stars. So even if they were to find him and challenge one of the All-Stars, they had slim chances of defeating any of them.
Even though the anime has slowed down a bit in the recent episodes, it still managed to produce an interesting story worth following. With Luffy on the live floor and Zorro, who keeps losing his way around the castle, it will be interesting to see how they will make it to Kaidou. In the background, the Samurai alliance is moving without any noticeable difficulties. So it will be just a matter of time before they make it inside, as their infiltration route is currently deserted.
The submarine group traveling with Law and Inuarashi are also progressing well. So, for now, we will likely get more screen time from the live floor as it is the noisiest of all the areas on the island.
Once all the groups come together, it will be the beginning of an interesting fight as the Raid will be in full swing. With only one episode left for this month, then September will be an interesting month for the One Piece anime schedule.
Previously on One Piece Episode 988
The Onigashima raid continues, and Luffy with his group managed to slip off from Apoo’s attacks thanks to Killer’s information. In the recent episodes, Killer exposed Apoo’s weaknesses. But it turned out that Kidd was not aware of this, so maybe it’s because Killer had in-depth knowledge about Appo back when they were allies. One Piece Episode 988 continued from Apoo and Kidd’s fight, knocking the former to the ground. After Killer came to warn them about Apoo’s attacks, they managed to get away from him, with Queen continuing with his games and promising promotions for anyone who would kill them.
But this was the same as usual, Luffy’s group knocking down the headliners as they raid down the castle. Zorro got lost while Kidd was occupied with the gifters, so Luffy decided that this would be a good moment for him to practice his Ryou. He seems to have mastered it at this point, so knowing that soon he will be facing Kaidou, he saw this as another opportunity to polish his skills. Kaidou is busy drinking, and Black Maria joins him and seems to have no interest in looking for Yamato.
We also got to see Kanjuro appearing with a beat-up Momonosuke. We have not got any updates from their side for several episodes. But with Momonosuke’s promise, we expected to see them sooner or later. So, for now, Orochi, Kaidou, and Kanjuro are gathered in one place.
Momonosuke faces Kaidou once again, so we would think that his execution will mark the end of Kozuki Oden’s lineage. So it would be interesting to see how Kaidou intends to do it this time. We know that he is the kind of person who likes to broadcast such events, so the next episode should carry more developments towards that side.
