The tensions and troubles are increasing as One Piece approaches the thousandth episode. Everyone and everything is going haywire in the face of danger. It will be worth watching what the new edition has in store for us this time.
It’s almost been two years since we saw Oden come back to the Land of Wano. The last war between the Gecko Pirates and the Animal Kingdom Pirates was held in Ringo. In the battle, we saw Gecko Moria and Kaido facing one another. Another twist that came was the revelation that the God of the Blade Ryuma’s grave was vandalized. On the other hand, in the flower capital, Oden continues to enjoy his lavish life. Yet, Orochi remains a Shogun amid all this. One Piece had visited the great war that happened in Oden’s era. So, let’s explore what will happen in the upcoming episode of the popular series.
One Piece Episode 972: Plot Details
One Piece Episode 972 is titled “The End of the Battle! Oden vs. Kaido!.” It will feature Oden and members of Akazaya Nine going off to Kaido to take him down. However, they are shocked when they get to know that there was a traitor in the team. One of Oden’s associates was planted among the group who already told Kaido about the attack. As a result, Kaido was all prepared with a thousand soldiers to face Oden and the others when they arrive. It is evident that this is a time for war now. Oden and Kaido will be up against each other.
The next episode will have an epic battle scene between Kaido and Oden & Akazaya Nine. As the title suggests, this will be one of the most intriguing and amazingly unequal fights of the show. If you look at the manga, it points towards an incredible scene where Oden takes on Kaido’s dragon and cuts the creature into two. It will be worth watching how this scene comes to life in the anime.
Previously on One Piece Episode 971
In Episode 971, we saw that the Gecko Pirates were up against the Animal Kingdom Pirates during the second year of Oden’s return to Wano. Here, Oden is still unstable and continues to make a fool of himself. People of the country make fun of him, but he still appears to perform his ridiculing dance every week. Five years later, Orochi returns to Kuri only to tell Oden that he wished to erect weapon factories there. Hence, Orochi tells him that he has imprisoned Hyogoro and handed him over to Kaido. In fact, Hyogoro’s wife is also under their arrest. On the other hand, he plans to break the promise by staying in the country with Kaido.
