ANALYST

Initial One Piece Chapter 1033 spoilers have come out, and with them we learn Kingโ€™s race and see a new Conquering King appear. Entitled โ€œShimotsuki Kozaburo,โ€ this chapter seems to be bringing King vs. Zoro into its final stages.

We also check up on Sanji vs Queen quickly, but assuming these spoilers are accurate, a vast majority of the chapter focuses on Zoro. Zoro also seems to get a massive powerup to close the chapter out with, assuming these leaks are accurate.

While we donโ€™t have page leaks for One Piece Chapter 1033 yet, we can still break the chapter down into rough sections. In what seems to be One Piece Chapter 1033โ€™s opening pages, we see Zoro attack King, which results in an explosion. Based on how the fight has gone so far, this explosion was likely King blocking or countering Zoroโ€™s attack.

One Piece Chapter 1033 then cuts to Queen vs. Sanji, where Queen begins explaining Kingโ€™s race to Sanji. King, apparently, is a member of the Lunarian race which โ€œwould have been annihilatedโ€ if not for Kingโ€™s survival.

Queen further explains that the Lunarians were monsters that could survive in any environment, being called Gods in ancient times. Sanji asks why they were annihilated, to which Queen responds with, "Ask King directly."


Zoro vs King

One Piece Chapter 1033 then goes back to Zoro vs. King, showing us Zoro surviving the explosion by covering himself in Armament Haki. Zoro attacks King with a Shishi Sonson, but the attack does no damage. King counterattacks, presumably knocking Zoro near the edge of the Skull Dome, given the next few events.

Zoroโ€™s swords begin to fall off Onigashima, as Zoro starts to have a flashback. He remembers Hitetsuโ€™s words about the Wado Ichimonji and Enma being made by Shimotsuki Kozaburo. Shimotsuki Kozaburo is later said in this chapter to be Kuinaโ€™s grandfather by way of her own father.

Zoro questions how the Wado Ichimonji, a Wano sword, ended up in the East Blue. This presumably leads into a flashback, but the leaks arenโ€™t specific on whether Zoro experiences this flashback or if itโ€™s for exposition.

Regardless, watchers get a flashback showing Kozaburo saying each sword has its own personality. Kozaburo says weak swordsmen who canโ€™t control strong swords are afraid of them, which is why they call them Cursed Blades. We then (presumably) see Zoro discovering Kozaburo is Kuinaโ€™s grandfather.


A new Conquering King appears

#ONEPIECE1033 SPOILER!!!!! YOOO!!!!!! YOOOOOO!!!!TAKE MY HAKI??!!!!! YOOOO!!!!!IS IT CONQUEROR???!!! WAIT, WAIT LET ME READ AGAIN...YOOO!!!! YOOOO!!!! IT'S CONQUEROR YOOO!!!!!MY BOI!!! ZORO!!!!! GOAT!!!!! https://t.co/6H7aJXeCnF

One Piece Chapter 1033 then cuts back to Zoro vs. King in real time. Zoro says he lacks strength before asking Enma if Oden was able to use the sword, despite Enma draining Haki from its user.

Beast Pirate fodder begins crowding in on Zoro, before Zoro abandons the regulation of his Haki and lets Enma take whatever it wants. Suddenly, the Beast Pirates that were approaching Zoro begins collapsing and fainting.

King asks Zoro if heโ€™s really going to try to become a โ€œKing,โ€ referencing the Conquering Kingโ€™s Haki, that Zoro just awakened. One Piece Chapter 1033 ends with Zoro saying of course, because he has a promise he made with his best friend and Captain. Fortunately, there is no break for the series next week.


Final thoughts

One Piece Chapter 1033 saw Zoro awaken Conquerorโ€™s Haki, an amazing powerup which undoubtedly puts him on a similar level to other Yonko right hands. Zoro also seemingly masters Enma here, based on his decision to stop regulating his Haki while using the blade.

One Piece Chapter 1033 giving an official name for Kingโ€™s race is great too. While fans have heard the name Lunarian before, and it was teased to be Kingโ€™s race, this is the first time the two have been directly associated.

Zoro vs. King seems to be heating up quickly and while Luffy vs. Kaido is still going on, Zoro vs. King seems to be one of the best Wano fights so far. Itโ€™s been somewhat of a stalemate with King recently gaining an edge, but hopefully One Piece Chapter 1033 gave Zoro everything he needs to get the advantage back.
