A quick recap of One Piece 1029
Last week’s episode started by showing viewers Luffy’s lifestyle before he ever dreamed about becoming a pirate. He would get into fights, play pranks on others, and eat as much as he could. This changed when he met Uta and Shanks, the day the Red Hair Pirates arrived at Foosha Village.
Since that day, Luffy started to ask Shanks to allow him on his ship, dreaming of becoming a pirate someday. Uta, Shanks' daughter and the Red Hair Pirates performer, was unhappy with the idea as she found Luffy’s style tacky. Nonetheless, the two kids became great friends, motivating Uta in the present to follow her dreams.
What can fans expect from One Piece Episode 1030?
Continuing Uta and Luffy’s adventures as children, One Piece Episode 1030 will focus on the competitions both kids had after becoming friends. It will also reveal the promises they made to each other for a better tomorrow.
However, not everything seems to be wholesome and happy in this episode, as Shanks will have a rough conversation with Luffy that will leave the little boy crying. Right now, fans have no idea what Shanks and Luffy will talk about, but it may not be pleasant for them to watch.
As this is the last tie-in episode of One Piece Film: Red, Uta’s story will have to be concluded in One Piece Episode 1030. After that, fans will sadly have to wait even longer before the show returns to the Land of Wano, as episode 1031 will be a recap episode.
Nevertheless, let’s hope the rest of Uta’s story is as enjoyable and informative as the preview promises it will be.
