Episode 1061 recap


One Piece episode 1061 began with Queen and Sanji continuing their clash in the Pleasure Hall. Queen expressed his frustration that Sanji destroyed the Raid Suit, meaning he couldn’t compare his own technology to that of Judge’s.

Sanji then destroyed Queen’s mechanical arm, turning invisible with Stealth Black-esque technology. In response, he became invisible by moving at breakneck speed, prompting Queen to decide to wait until he tired himself out.

The episode then showed Osome, the Geisha whom Sanji allegedly hit, stay behind to look for her mouse, Chuji. It’s then revealed, after she arrives at the invisible battlefield, that Queen is the one who actually hit her, not Sanji.

The episode then saw Sanji figure this out for himself, prompting the enraged Straw Hat to use his newfound exoskeleton to give birth to the Ifrit Jambe.

With his new and improved Jambe technique in action, Sanji used the Boeuf Burst to send Queen flying. He then reunited Chuji and Osome before collapsing from his injuries and being announced the winner of the fight.

What to expect (speculative)

Based on the preview for the upcoming installment, it seems that One Piece episode 1062 is set to focus exclusively on Zoro’s fight with King. While there could be other perspectives interspersed, the preview essentially only shows scenes from this fight.

As a result, it’s a safe bet that this will be the primary focus of the upcoming (and unfortunately delayed) installment. The juxtaposition between a Sanji-focused episode and a Zoro-focused one should be interesting. As for what One Piece episode 1062 could show alongside Zoro and King’s fight, a few options stand out.

One would be yet another update on Nico Robin and Brook’s status, with the two being hunted by CP0 currently. A brief focus on either Yamato’s race to the armory against Kazenbo or Momonosuke’s efforts to slow Onigashima’s progression is also likely. Either way, it will be a difficult two weeks for the fans.
