The exciting battle between the Yonko and the Supernovas will continue as soon as One Piece Episode 1027 is released. Big Mom is out of commission for now, falling towards the sea, but that does not mean their Worst Generation is safe since Kaido is still there.

However, the excitement does not stop there, since the number of fights inside the Land of Wano keeps increasing. Chopper and Marco still need to defeat Queen, while the Scabbard are finding new opponents on their quest to find Kanjuro.

Last episode’s recap

One Piece Episode 1026 started with a deranged Orochi laughing for having set Kaido’s castle aflame. While running in search of Kanjuro, the Scabbards ran into the former shogun. Kin’emon told Orochi to move, but the man was too far gone and took that as an invitation to fight, causing his own demise since the Scabbards made quick work of him.

On the roof, Luffy and the other Supernovas struggled to keep up with Kaido and Big Mom’s powers. The Emperors were quickly losing interest in the fight and wanted to end it as fast as possible. Luffy intervened to remind Kaido that the young pirates were still resolved to win.

Kaido became furious with the Straw Hat Pirate’s words, claiming determination was not going to save their lives. He sent Luffy crashing into the ground and when he was about to kill him, Zoro stood up for his captain. Kaido instead tried to kill Zoro, prompting Luffy to stop him, which surprised the Yonko.

Luffy was able to keep up with Kaido for a little while, but was distracted by Big Mom, allowing Kaido to regain control of the fight. Kid, Law, Killer and Zoro all combined strengths to separate Big Mom from her sentient weapons and sent her flying out of the floating island.

What can you expect from One Piece Episode 1027?

This upcoming episode of One Piece will be titled Defend Luffy! Zoro and Law’s Sword Technique! As the title implies, it will revolve around Zoro and Law trying to keep Kaido from killing an injured Luffy. Big Mom may be gone, but Kaido is still a major threat the Worst Generation has to deal with if they want to live.

To accomplish this, Zoro will have to use his Conqueror Haki, as proven by the preview for the episode.

It seems like Big Mom will also have her own moments in One Piece Episode 1027, considering we can see her floating in the sea, like she is thinking about something. We also hope the episode will continue with other battles happening inside the Land of Wano, like Dogstorm and Jack’s.

Fans have been loving the animation and stories the last few episodes have had, praising the people involved with their creation. Let’s hope this new episode will also have an amazing art style and will please fans as much as its predecessors.
