Despite recent delays, One Piece Episode 1016 is scheduled to proceed this week.
The previous episode shook the very foundations of the anime community. Luffy struck down Kaido with his new technique, Red Roc. Considering the pain and suffering he caused in Wano Country, Kaido absolutely deserved that punch. Regardless, the Emperor isn't going to let that slide.
One Piece Episode 1016 will continue where the previous episode left off. The rooftop battle will likely be the main focus. However, there will also be scenes involving Sanji and Black Maria, so fans should temper their expectations.
