Chapter One Piece 1048 : 20 years
Cover: It’s Ichiji and Reiju the intruders in the Chocolate Village of Pudding.
Momonosuke continues to push Onigashima to dodge Luffy’s attack.
Kaido transforms into a fire dragon, the transformation is called “Great Flame Dragon”.
His body touches Onigashima’s horn which was still intact and it melts like butter.
Right after Kaido transforms into a giant Fire Dragon and his body melts Onigashima’s horn, Kaido opens his mouth and Luffy approaches his giant fist and there is a huge collision without touching.
Kaido is then seen with his mouth open and Luffy’s fist almost touching his teeth.
Luffy uses an attack called “Gomu Gomu no Bajrang Gun” (Monkey King’s Gun).
Kaido uses a new attack called “Shoryu: Kaen Hakke”.
The scene changes and we go inside the castle.
There are the samurai who want Kaido defeated.
Kawamatsu remembers what happened after Oden was executed 20 years ago. A flashback begins.
Kaido discovers that Oden has a son.
Kaido searches for Momonosuke and eliminates any townspeople who get in his way.
We see Oden Castle burning.
The Daimyos of Wano unite to fight Kaido and Orochi.
We see a space for each of the Daimyos, there is Tonoyasu and the 3 samurai that Yamato met in the cellar. (Shimotsuki Ushimaru included).
They are all defeated.
They start enslaving people and the country falls apart.
We return to the present, Orochi is still on fire.
He tries to take Komurasaki with him.
Denjiro arrives and chops off Orochi’s head.
We see the wishes of the inhabitants already crossing the sky.
“Make Orochi disappear” or “I want to escape from this hell” are among the visible wishes.
At the end of the chapter, Luffy and Kaido are about to confront their attacks.
The last double page is in three parts, one of the parts is the confrontation between Kaido and Luffy:
Kaido is still in full Dragon form, he just surrounded himself with fire. He used the clouds of fire, this is not the awakening of his power.
He collides with Luffy, both of them using Advanced Kings Haki. Like the shock between Roger and Whitebeard, they don’t touch each other, there is a huge shock wave around Onigashima with lightning.
They use the same techniques as before, but we see it from further away. The chapter ends with Kaido and Luffy’s faces looking quite similar to those at the end of chapter 1047.
End. One Piece Chapter 1049 releases on May 13, 2022.
