One Piece Chapter 988 Discussion:
We start where we left off last chapter as the Minks were about to transform into their Sulong forms. This chapter starts with Jack and the Beast Pirates coming to help Kaido while the Guardians and the Musketeers Squad jump into battle him in their Sulong forms while Inuarashi and Nekomamushi save their transformations to beat Kaido. Inside the Skull Dome, Shinobu tries to save a restrained Momonosuke as the attempt is foiled by King who’s in his Pteronodon form.
Just then, we see Sanji who was invisible till now, in his Raider Suit glory manage to free Momonosuke as King battles him and crashes him into a tower nearby. Luffy entrusts Yamato to protect Momonosuke and proceeds to face off against Big Mom as she attacks him with her Elbaf spear which he dodges.
Big Mom meanwhile summons back Zeus from Nami who tried to steal him and attacks her relentlessly. Nami screams at Zeus announcing that their friendship is over. Big Mom keeps on attacking Nami as Franky literally rolls over Big Mom with his Kurosai FR U IV while Brook cuts Zeus down.
This chapter, as said earlier was again, all about setting up some amazing future battles. We have the Mink tribe facing off against Jack and the Beast Pirates while their leaders are all set to battle Kaido. We have Sanji and none other than King facing off. Though Sanji is an extremely well liked character, it’s kind of improbable to visualize him defeating an entity like King. So he will have aid in that battle. Probably Zoro because he was widely speculated to be King’s ultimate opponent by the fandom. Finally we have Luffy and the Straw Hats facing off against Big Mom.
ONE PIECE CHAPTER 989 Spoilers & PREDICTIONS:
So this chapter was about setting the various battles but it looks like we’ll probably see skirmishes rather than one on ones. As stated earlier we might see Zoro join in to help Sanji fight King. We could see the Mink leaders transform into Sulongs next chapter but it still looks improbable that the Minks and the Samurais will beat Kaido. Yamato, meanwhile was an interesting facet this chapter with her looking confused about the entire Momo is my son act.
There is a possibility that Yamato might join the Straw Hats after the Wano arc gets over. As to who will fight Queen, it’s another possibility that Sanji and Zoro will face off against both King and Queen in the coming chapters.
As of now, it’s looking too good for the alliance and will probably continue to be good for at least for a couple of chapters more until the tide actually starts turning against them. Due to the total chaos happening everywhere, we might not even see the Mink/Samurai vs Kaido battle.
We’ll probably just see Kaido emerging victorious after having everybody fall. There are speculations that Kaido will be only defeated in the mainland where the citizens can see it happening and this has the maximum possibility given the trend the manga has always followed.
