One Piece Episode 1004 recap

In episode 1004 of One Piece, fans witnessed Monkey D. Luffy and Sanji team up against Kaido’s underlings. Jack was finally taken down by Cat Viper and Dogstorm, who gave their best to defeat him.

Fans thoroughly enjoyed this episode as it featured a ton of action. The Queen used her Oni Ice bullets, which seemed quite effective. But, one of the most anticipated parts of this episode was that the members of Akayaza were finally about to face off against Kaido.

But, One Piece fans know the outcome of the battle given the sheer difference in power level and ability between the two parties.

What to expect in One Piece Episode 1005

This episode of One Piece will most likely show the battle between the Akazaya Nine and Kaido. That being said, the chances of Akazaya Nine beating Kaido is slim to none.

In the show, it has been established that Kozuki Oden is far more powerful than the Akazaya, and he couldn’t beat Kaido. Following that, the next set of episodes should feature a fight between Monkey D. Luffy and Kaido.
