On Wednesday night, raw scan photos of One Piece Chapter 1054 began to appear online, giving fans they’re first to peek at the forthcoming issue. These photographs corroborate and expand on the events of Chapter 1054, courtesy of Redon’s return to regular spoiler duty (as well as the efforts of others in the community) earlier in the week. Preparation for the Straw Hats’ departure from Wano and a review of prior world events appear to be the main focus of this chapter. Chapter 1054, as many fans are aware, finally provides an explanation for what happened to Sabo at the Reverie.
Spoilers ahead for One Piece Chapter 1054!
To prevent Ryokugyu from reaching the Straw Hats, the remaining Akazaya Nine have agreed to confront Ryokugyu in One Piece Chapter 1054. Before they start fighting, the two factions gather outside the Flower Capital and exchange a few words. First, Ryokugyu looks to have made a move with his Logia type Forest-Forest Fruit. As a part of his massive assault on the Akazaya, the Admiral summons fist-sized trees from the earth. Denjiro and the rest look to be holding their own until Yamato comes and manages to smack Ryokugyu in the head before joining her friends. Later, Momonosuke joins the fight as well, making Ryokugyu face an equal-sized opponent in Momonosuke. Admiral’s bite appears to cause some damage but appears to be insufficient, as he replies by crushing the Dragon-form Shogun hard with branches.
Once outside Wano, Chapter 1054 moves the action to the waters. On board the Red Force, the Red Hair Pirates can be seen with their crew of pirates. Yasopp, Lucky Roux, and Benn Beckman, who will appear later, are among the crew members who will be remembered.
In the beginning, when Shanks first spotted Luffy’s new position as a wanted criminal, we witness a flashback of him beaming at Luffy’s current wanted poster. Before Shanks and Luffy’s connection is seen, the crew seems to discover the Gum-Gum Fruit and decides to travel to Windmill Village with it. The main crew seems to be debating their captain’s newest movements, while Shanks, Lucky Roux, and Benn Beckman are having their own private talk on the ship. As he and Beckman sip sake, he says something that, based on the way he is shown and the entire tone of the page, appears quite serious or harsh.
Finally, for the last act of the chapter, One Piece Chapter 1054 shifts focus to Fleet Admiral Sakazuki and the Marines as a whole. It’s revealed here that, at least to the best of the world’s knowledge, Sabo was responsible for the assassination of Cobra Nefertari at the Reverie. That he and the other Revolutionary Army leaders battled off Ryokugyu and Fujitora, freeing Kuma in the process, seems to have been proven in this excerpt. Sakazuki, Kizaru, a Celestial Dragon who may be Saint Mjosgard, and the newest character, Kurouma, are all involved in this secret debate about these specifics. Kurouma’s naming pattern is similar to those of other Admirals and Admiral-level figures, such as Ryokugyu and Fujitora, however, this is unverified. A black horse, a green bull, and a purple tiger, respectively, are the translations for the first two.
To be clear, spoilers clarify that his function is that of the head of the Marines’ investigation unit, and his major objective right now is to establish the truth regarding Reverie’s occurrences. Because of the nature of this discussion, which took place behind closed doors, it appears that he will be the primary source of information for fans. After Kurouma’s introduction, the raw scans appear to be out of order, but the final sequence of events appears to begin with an announcement to the general army. Chapter 1054 concludes with an angry Fleet Admiral Sakazuki staring out to sea in the final two panels, which show the crew celebrating their victory. In the wake of the series’ return from hiatus, One Piece Chapter 1054 appears to be an exciting issue, putting the Wano arc’s finish above all else.
It’s done in a spectacular way, beginning with an action-packed sequence, then transitioning into a fan-favourite cameo, and concluding with an educational tidbit. This highly-anticipated issue will be released on Sunday, July 24, but the scan photos and spoilers seem to confirm each other’s validity. Fans should anticipate scanlations to be posted before the issue’s official publication, which should help readers better understand what happened in the chapter between now and when this article is published. Fans will be delighted with this return to One Piece with Chapter 1054, which is an issue that puts the interests of its readers first. A cameo appearance by Shanks and an explanation of Sabo’s fate are the only viable options.
