One Piece Episode 1048, titled “For the Future! Yamato and the Great Swordsmen’s Pledge,” aired on January 22, 2022.
In my overview of One Piece Episode 1045, I mentioned that Momo nonetheless has a concern of heights that he would want to beat in an effort to fly in his dragon type.
And it seems to be like I used to be proper as a result of as quickly as Momonosuke took to the air, he panicked and crashed again into the bottom. I suppose it could be a while earlier than the Azure Dragon, Kaido, can face off in opposition to the Peach Dragon, Momosonsuke.
Yamato vs Kaido
The chapter continues with Yamato vs Kaido, and I gotta say Yamato’s energy is not any joke. She is way stronger than I initially thought. To be capable to combat Kaido’s hybrid type for therefore lengthy tells me that she is unquestionably stronger than a Yonko Commander. I’d even go so far as to say she could be nearly as sturdy as a Marine Admiral.
We additionally get a little bit of Yamato’s backstory, the place she assaults the Beast Pirates as a child calling herself Oden. Even as a child, she was sturdy sufficient to knock out a number of Beast Pirates members along with her Conqueror’s Haki.
Kaido locks Yamato in a cave with three Daimyo of Wano that have been captured for rebelling in opposition to Kaido. He provides Yamato and the three samurai one month to make their determination and leaves them one portion of meals.
But in contrast to what Yamato anticipated, the samurai didn’t resent her. Instead, they gave her the meals that Kaido left although they themselves had not eaten for a number of days.
After all, “samurai don’t get hungry.”
There was additionally one other flashback inside this flashback displaying Oden’s journey with Roger as Yamato reads Oden’s logbook.
After studying concerning the battle that’s imagined to occur 20 years from then, the samurai determined to interrupt open the cave and assault Kaido as they will’t wait that lengthy.
Oden and these three samurai are the rationale Yamato is at the moment combating his personal father to guard Wano.
Yamato’s battle with Kaido continues after the flashback, and my god, the ultimate battle sequence between the 2 had movie-quality animation.
If Toei is doing this high quality for these episodes, then I can solely think about how beautiful the ultimate Luffy vs Kaido battle will look.
