Hey guys! In this post, I want to talk about One Piece chapter 896. Before I begin, I want to let you all know that this post contains a lot of spoilers. If you don’t want to be spoiled, then I suggest you leave this post, or stop reading. However, if you don’t mind being spoiled, then let’s continue with the post. One Piece chapter 895 ended with Luffy and Katakuri’s fight finally concluding.
The victor wasn’t quite clear to us, but thanks to the spoilers for chapter 896, we now know what actually happened. I’m getting straight to the point here. Luffy was able to dodge Katakuri’s Dice Mochi, and hit him with King Cobra attack. Katakuri coughed up blood, but even that wasn’t enough to defeat him.
Katakuri prepared another attack to land on Luffy, but Luffy ran out of stamina, and he passed out due to exhaustion. Meanwhile, Katakuri stopped his attack now that Luffy collapsed. He let out a sigh, and then collapsed on his front. After Luffy wakes up, he climbs out of the hole he was in, and sees Katakuri standing. Katakuri asks him if he’ll return to defeat Big Mom in the future, and he says that he will.
After hearing his reply, Katakuri collapses, and Luffy covers his fangs with his hat. Then Luffy collapses as well. Pekoms enters the Mirror world somehow, and then takes Brulee in his control, and attempts to save Luffy. Meanwhile, the Big Mom Pirates prepare for Luffy’s exit. On the other hand, Sanji prepares to save Luffy from the army, and he says a tearful goodbye to Pudding in the process.
Jinbe and the Strawhats get closer to Cacao Island, and there are just 5 minutes left until 1 am now. That’s basically it from the entire chapter. I like how Oda handled the fight between Luffy and Katakuri. Katakuri spared Luffy at the end, and the fight ended in a draw, which I think makes a lot of sense. Luffy has also gained new powers, and he is now set for Wano Country arc, where he’ll display his abilities to the maximum.
I’m really interested to see how Sanji saves Luffy, and deals with the army. Unfortunately, we didn’t get any action with Germa Kingdom yet again, but I guess that will change soon. Over all, the chapter looks great, judging from the spoilers and I can’t wait to read it.
