One Piece Episode 996 is delayed, but the anime will run with a new episode this weekend. Akazaya Nine vs. Kaido begins with One Piece Episode 996, with Kaidou telling Orochi’s underlings to join him or suffer the same fate as Orochi. In the previous episode, Orochi and Kaido had some arguments that led Kaido to take King’s blade and cut Orochi’s head. Big Mom has arrived with two members of the Straw Hats. From the previous episode of One Piece, we saw Kaido shocked after having flashbacks of Oden beating him. Kaido realizes that Oden would have taken him down in the past, but it is all thanks to his plans and Orochi.
Even though Orochi got betrayed, he played an essential role in Kaido’s life. Orochi’s men had no choice since no matter what they do they couldn’t defeat Kaido and the likes of Queen. They decided to join Kaido and celebrate Orochi’s death. But Orochi’s head is still on the ground with Kaido’s feet on top of it. This made Big Mom laugh after realizing that she and Kaido would rule over with no one interfering. But the problem is the brat that is tied to the poles. Kaido feels that he is threatened and decides to punish Momonosuke.
But he thinks that a coward like Momonosuke will never be Oden’s son since Momonosuke keeps on crying and is not brave enough to avenge his father. Kaido announces that if the brat is not Oden’s son, they won’t kill him. Momonosuke realizes that he has to say something since Kaido insists. Hyogoro wanted to take action, but his allies stopped him. Shinobu uses her Ninja moves to steal Momonosuke before Kaido kills him. Kaido’s underlings laugh at Momonosuke that he has to lie to save his life.
Boss Hyogoro worried and also shed tears since he can’t bear to lose another master. He believed that Momonosuke would tell a lie to save his life. But the opposite happens, and Momonosuke proves that he is proud to be Oden’s son even though he might face death. Momonosuke shocked Kaido after saying that he would become a Shogun and take Kaido down. On the other side, Yamato and Luffy are dashing at full speed to reach the Live Performance Floor before Momonosuke dies.
Yamato learned that Momonosuke is Oden’s son, and she realizes that she met some Samurai and they are Akazaya Nine. That brought happiness to Yamato since she thought that the Akazaya Nine had died. The two encounter some of the Pirates and begin to smash them. Luffy also uses some Gum Gum strike as he punches the enemies.
Near Onigashima, Prospero faces Marco after realizing that he has to make Marko pay for kicking their ship away when they reach Onigashima, and King is on them for people who will pay since King did the same as Marco. The two had an intense battle, but Prospero had a proposal. Prospero tries to fool Marco after telling him to join Big Mom’s pirate since they aim to take down Kaido.
He believes that Kaido will be defeated and eliminate everyone and make Big Mom the King of Pirates. Inside Onigashima, Luffy finds a solution to Yamato’s cuffs and takes them off. But it caused a massive explosion, and the two got sent flying and arrived inside the Live Performance Floor. The Akazaya Nine also arrived and began to punish Kaido. They also beat him and sent him flying, where he lost his weapon.
One Piece Episode 996 will be released on 24 October 2021. Luffy had decided to give the Akazaya Nine a chance to vent their anger on Kaido. Queen told his men to get their weapons to face the ghost and the intruders. Big Mom notices that the Straw Hat is here, and she has been looking forward to fighting with him after all things Luffy has done. The Akazaya Nine vs. Kaido and Luffy vs. Kaido continue in the next episode. Let’s look at One Piece Episode 996 Preview and the official updates below.
