With more than 1000 chapters published, One Piece is by far one of the longest-running Japanese manga of all time. The series focuses on Monkey D. Luffy, a young man who, inspired by his childhood idol and powerful pirate Shanks, sets off on a journey from the East Blue Sea to find the titular treasure and proclaim himself the King of the Pirates. Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming One Piece Chapter 1022.
Anyone who reads One Piece manga surely loved Robin and Black Maria’s fight in the previous chapter, and now, everyone waits for Chapter 1022 to come out. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming chapter’s release schedule.
Like the anime adaptation, One Piece manga also follows a weekly release schedule. And this week, everyone is eager to read Chapter 1022.
Previous Chapter Recap:
In Chapter 1021 of One Piece, Black Maria and Nico Robin get into an epic battle. Shockingly, Black Maria turned into a Demonic form that ultimately led to the defeat of the Nico Robin. She told everyone that her demonic powers are a result of her ‘Deminio’ dragon fruit. Later, Luffy and Momonosuke, who were on their way to Kaido’s castle, met Caribou. Caribou is essentially the ally who provided food to the pirates to regain their strength while fighting.
Lastly, the chapter ended with a breathtaking battle between Robin, Brook, and Tobiroppo. The formers easily won the combat winning one point to the Straw Hats.
One Piece Chapter 1022 Delayed?
One Piece fans were expecting the next manga chapter to come out this weekend; however, the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is on a break this week. Meaning, you’ll have to wait one more week to read Chapter 1022.
One Piece Chapter 1022 Preview?
The upcoming chapter is likely to finally begin the Luffy Vs. Kaido showdown. After Luffy’s fall, a lot has happened in the Land of Wano. But now that he has finally recovered, Luffy wants to avenge every loss so far. Even Momonosuke will find his time to shine in Onigashima. Since Kaido has not entered the battle just yet, he is fresh with strength. However, Luffy is still regaining strength post his fall. The latest plot details suggest that Raizo and Fukurokuju will clash in the castle.
In the last few chapters, the Sanji and Queen combat has been on pause. Thus, there are high chances that this fight will soon bring justice to King and Queen. Moreover, Zoro will also recover from his wounds and join Sanji to take down Queen. But Onigashima would also be at the brink of collapsing in the next fifteen minutes. As a result, Luffy and Momo will rush to Kiado’s quarters as fast as they can. One Piece Chapter 2023 will end with Zoro and Sanji announcing that if they win this battle, Luffy will become the King of the Pirates
