Quick Recap of One Piece Episode 975
The last episode showed the aftermath of the death of Oden. There’s no longer any group that can directly resist Orochi, and the citizens will have tough times ahead. Let’s take a quick recap from the latest release of One Piece.
What’s Your Name?
All of the Scabbards return to Kuri and regroup. They are still sentimental about Odens death and suspect a snitch among them. Back at the Oden’s castle, Kaido arrives and grabs Momonosuke by his throat.
He asks him his name, and Momonuske yells with an extended shout and claims that one day he will become the Shogun of Wano. Kaido sets the entire castle on fire.
Toki asks Kinemon and Kanjiro to go 20 years into the future along with Momonosuke. People outside of the castle watch as the building starts collapsing. Lady Toki comes out and tells them about the dark times that Wano will go through.
However, she also tells them about a group of 9 individuals who will arrive and put the dark times to an end.
