    I am still in awe of the Momo spread.. Dude looks intimidating as fuck and will likely be the bulwark against further Marine intervention..

    Carrot and Wanda must've been more hurt than i thought, or less time has passed, because they still seem to be laying in the same place they got beaten in before. Can they even move? Or will they just watch big Garfield beat Pero?

    Wait, I thought there was no break next week? Mangaplus says next chapter lands on September 12, not 5...

    Good lord what a meaty chapter, and I wasn't ready for how awesome Momo would look, even though we had an obvious template through Kaido's own dragon form lol

    The King/Lunarian stuff sounds interesting, but right now I'm mainly curious about what the deal with Sanji is.

    VIZ Manga says seven days, and the earlier report did say no break, but good to know we should keep watch for a change in plans.

    Well, I'm surprised official Viz didn’t translate the important line of Ushimaru being
    "大剣豪" (Dai-Kengou, meaning great swordsman) in this chapter.
    It’s important because only him, Mihawk and Ryuma have been classified as Dai-Kengou in all OP chapters till now.

    (According to Vivre Card, Vista is called Dai-Kengou as well, but maybe it's not 100% confirmed about it since editors have made mistakes about Vivre Card/Blue Deep..)

    Zoro said his dream is to become the strongest Dai-Kengou in the world.

    I'm guessing it's not a coincidence that Sanji's second time in a raid suit involved him being physically close to or touched by a Lunarian named King. If he does have some sort of latent connection, then that might be why he's feeling "off." Something could be "awakening."

    That chapter. My goodness that chapter. What an unbelievably incredibly electrifying read. I loved it. My body was not ready for how amped up it would now be. Ahhh, how glorious. The threads of the journey unfolding throughout the manga have now found themselves converging at a point tying together a new thread on which the path forward has been constructed. The satisfying nature of payoff is a magical experience in how something so consuming and defined can yet surprise the avenues of the mind when the moment is presented in the manner as it was in this chapter. Certain elements were expected but the way they aligned and cascaded alongside each other, such a feeling evoked is indescribable. But if a word was to be placed reflecting the spirit of its conveyance - exhilarating,

    Now this is a twist that could work. At least, it's better than unethical eugenics being the answer to everything.

    King is slowly coming along, but i'm still not impressed. Oda has done a lot to set up the 4 "commander" battles because he most likely will finish them after the other battles like Apoo, Hawkins, Fukurokuju, 4 Numbers, and Lord Orochi.

    5 Sanji and Zoro's whole back n forth
    4 Name of King's race finally

    Just a hunch but, taking into account the spanish version of mangaplus has not released the extra chapter Vivi's adventure and that in the english version this extra chapter is listed after chapter 1023, I would bet the date of the next chapter gets automatically computed each time a new chapter is released by adding 7 days to the previous date. And since in the english version two chapters were released it added 14 days while in the spanish version it only added 7.

    The hawkeyed one vouched for his street cred back in MF so it think we can allow him an honorary great swordsman title in the interim

    Ryuuma looks awesome and him being one eyed, I hope this will put some end to the Zoro will open his left eye for some shit.

    Abour Sanji... How was he using the raid suit 2 times.

    1. Against Page One
    2. Against Drake and Hawkins
    3. Against King

    Or do Oda want to say that after Page One he never transformed back

    This actually makes a ton of sense. Good guess!

    As for the chapter, counting the spoiler thread and all, it has definitely sparked a lot of controversy and debate, but I think, in itself, it's a pretty good chapter. It makes for an even better one-two combo when read right after 1022, as they seem to go totally hand in hand.

    Kinda weird seeing King as the trigger for the "gods" flashback. Cause, it's him that's making Marco reminisce, right?
