One Piece Chapter 1049 is scheduled to be officially released on May 3rd, 2022, and it seems that things are about to get serious between Luffy and Kaido. The previous chapter of Eiichiro Oda’s manga series is a roller coaster as we see an unexpected end for Orochi. At the same time, the manga also sees the character development of the heir of the Kozuki clan.
The manga featured another flashback during Kaido and Orochi’s invasion. As we get closer to the final moments of the Wano Country Arc, here is everything you need to know and what to expect about the upcoming Chapter 1049 of the One Piece manga series.
What to Expect in Chapter 1049
The cliffhanger of the previous chapter finally sees Luffy’s serious face. After his awakening, Luffy has been enjoying the fight against the strongest creature in the world of One Piece. Many are expecting to see another all-out fight between Luffy and Kaido, which will likely happen in the next chapter. Kaido has also revealed another transformation that makes everything more complicated for his opponent. Thankfully for Luffy, he already learned another level of Haki that allows him to attack and hit the enemy without touching them.
Moreover, there’s a chance that the upcoming One Piece Chapter 1049 will feature another flashback or another scene and happenings inside the Skull Dome. As we all know, the remaining members of the Nine Red Scabbards are still in a bad situation, and they surely need some medical attention.
Previous Chapter Recap
The previous One Piece manga chapter, titled “20 Years,” started with Momonosuke struggling to save the flying island of Onigashima. The fight between Kaido and Luffy continues with Kaido transforming into his Flaming Drum Dragon. This new form of Yonko covers his dragon form with flames that burn everything it touches. Luffy experienced the heat and pain after he tried to grab Kaido’s head. However, that doesn’t stop Luffy from continuing the fight as he already knew how to use Ryuo.
Inside the Skull Dome, Usopp was seen apologizing to Kinemon and Kino and begged not to die. The other samurai are also cheering for Luffy to defeat Kaido. Raizo also noted that the nightmare will not end unless Luffy defeats Kaido. The next scene we see is a flashback from Kaido and Orochi’s invasion. The citizens of the Wano Country begged Kaido and Orochi to stop chasing the Kozuki, but they were attacked by the pirates. When Kaido asked the 4 daimyos of the country if they were willing to cooperate with them, they rejected the pirates’ offer and opposed them, resulting in their being jailed.
Back to the present time, Orochi was burning and was about to attack Hiyori. However, he wasn’t able to attack Hiyori as Denjiro arrived and beheaded Orochi. As the manga gets close to its final spread, we see the citizens of the Wano Country smiling as they set the lanterns along with their wishes into the air. Meanwhile, Luffy gets serious as the fight against Kaido continues.
