A recap of the last episode
One Piece Episode 1028 started with Big Mom creating a new Homie after being convinced by Prometheus to give him a girlfriend. Using the power of this new creature, Big Mom was able to send Kid and Killer through the walls of Onigashima.
Inside the castle, Usopp, Nami, and Otama were doing their best to lose Page One, who was chasing them through the corridors of the castle. Elsewhere, Kid and Killer were recovering from Big Mom’s attack, prepared to fight her again. On their way towards the Yonko, they were intercepted by Hawkins, prompting Killer to stay behind and defeat the traitor.
While all this was happening, Luffy was finally waking up after being knocked out by Kaido. Thanks to this near-death experience, Luffy figured out how to unlock his Advanced Conqueror Haki, which allowed him to stop Kaido’s attacks, something that seemed impossible before.
Without warning, Luffy started attacking Kaido using his new power, sending the Emperor flying towards a rock. The episode ended with Luffy smiling at his friends and claiming he would beat Kaido no matter what happens.
What can you expect from One Piece Episode 1029?
As stated before, One Piece Episode 1029 will deal with Luffy and Uta’s shared past, starting from the moment they met as children. While it has not yet been confirmed, the episode could also explain how Luffy and Shanks met, most likely thanks to Uta.
We may also get a bit more information about Shank’s past, something fans have been claiming to know for years now. Unfortunately, the fight against Kaido will have to wait for at least two more weeks, as there is still another tie-in episode about the new movie.
This is a disappointment for many fans who are waiting to see Luffy reach his Gear V mode in the anime. Still, a large portion of the fanbase is hoping that One Piece Episode 1029 will be as interesting as the previews made it seem. Let’s hope that the episode fulfills their expectations, while giving us more information about some of our favorite characters.
