One Piece chapter 1043 raw scans are out and this chapter is a contender for one of the best One Piece chapters of all time without a shadow of a doubt. The biggest takeaway from the recent chapter is the return of Joy Boy which many fans of the series have been waiting for.
Written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda, One Piece is one of the longest-running manga series of all time with its tenure spanning more than 20 years. With over 1000 chapters, One Piece has found its popularity worldwide. Let’s discuss One Piece chapter 1043 breakdown.
One Piece Chapter 1043 Breakdown – Farewell, CP0 Agent
When the CP0 agent interfered in the fight between Luffy and Kaido, he knew what was coming to him and he pretty much accepted the situation. The agent was also quite envious of Drake as he had the liberty to make his own decisions. As everyone expected, the agent got trampled in the latest chapter.
In the past few chapters, Oda has provided an edge to this CP0 agent. He has given him a character that has motives and is not just a mindless idiot who is following orders from the government. As he gets trampled, the agent gets a farewell scene with an indication that he is probably dead.
Kaido is declared the winner of the battle and descends to the floor. Kawamatsu asks everyone to evacuate because there’s no honor in burning to death. Kaido asks Momonosuke to give up as Luffy has been defeated. Name arrives and calls Kaido a snake and a liar.
Kaido goes to attack Nami but Marco blocks him and protects Nami. Kid and Law hear about Luffy’s defeat and advance to attack Kaido. Amidst all of this, Momonosuke is a bit skeptical about what he should do. If he doesn’t give up here, a lot of people will die.
The Return of Joy Boy
Kaido challenges everyone on the floor to have a go at him. Momonosuke is about to break and give up but Zunesha tells him something important. He tells him that the drums of liberation are singing.
Yamato also asks Momonosuke to not give up and die together. Zunesha mentions that he hasn’t heard the sound in years and Joy Boy has arrived. In the last panel, we see Luffy’s body melting along with his Strawhat and he has his signature smile on his face. The SFX beside him reads “Nika”, implying his connection with Sun God Nika.
One Piece Chapter 1044 – What to Expect
There’s only one thing that you can expect from One Piece chapter 1044 and that is the reveal of who or what exactly Joy Boy is. As Zunesha mentioned, he has noticed Joy Boy for the first time in 800 years. So far, we only have a hint that Luffy’s hat is melting and he is smiling.
What kind of significance does it have with JoyBoy? We don’t know yet. But knowing Oda, he surely has some crazy ideas in a plan that he might’ve planted way earlier. It’s crazy after so many years, the moment has finally come for the fans to learn more about the void century. Moving forward, the One Piece chapters are going to be amazing.
