“The Worst Generation Charges in! The Battle of the Stormy Sea!” is the title of the One Piece Episode 978. The title itself is enough to tease one of the most anticipated battles of the anime. The Land of Wano is burning under Orochi’s rule. Both Orochi and Kaido have burnt all the ports around Wano to destroy refuge for any foreign fleets.
All this was possible because of the mole that they planted amongst the rebel clans. The previous chapter also saw the revelation of this betrayer. Well, One Piece has officially come out with the titles of its following four chapters. The entire internet is discussing theories on the basis of these names. So, here is everything that you must know about One Piece Episode 978.
One Piece Episode 978: What’s Next?
The end of the previous episode pointed that the Akazaya Nine were being attacked by Orochi’s minions. But Luffy’s ships arrive just in time to balance the odds. Moreover, the Akazaya Nine, along with Straw Hats, Heart Pirates, and the Kid Pirates, will finally draw a plan to siege the city of Wano. For now, Orochi is not aware that help has arrived from the sea. So, it will take time for him to counter the attacks.
On the other hand, Momosuke is struggling with Kanjuro while they both escape seeing Kaido. We can also expect to see Denjiro come out as his true self and join the Straw Hats Pirates. Now that Kaido and Orochi are weakened in numbers, we can expect intense action in the coming episode. The 979th episode is titled “Strong Luck?! Leader Kin’emon Total Plan.” Following this, we will witness “Promise of Tears! The Kidnapped Momonosuke”. Lastly, episode 981 is “A New Companion! Knight of the Sea, Jinbei!”. Let’s wait until the One Piece Episode 978 comes out before forging theories about the newer ones.
