Information for other Weekly Shonen Jump series, including One Piece chapter 1068, has also been leaked despite the series being on hiatus this week. Although not as thorough as the spoiler material other fandoms are receiving as of this article’s writing, the editor’s note for the chapter undoubtedly suggests a big development. Until the week that the issue is actually released, fans probably won’t find out anything about One Piece chapter 1068. Thus, with the issue’s official publication date being Monday, December 5 at 12 AM JST, fans are still a long way from knowing anything new about it.
Nevertheless, this newest tease is undoubtedly an interesting one. Follow along as this article extensively analyses the latest One Piece chapter 1068 plot tease, as well as speculates on just what it may signify. In light of the most recent editor’s remark, it appears like Luffy’s battle with Lucci will commence in chapter 1068 of One Piece. With the publication of spoilers and raw scans for other Weekly Shonen Jump series, One Piece chapter 1068’s editor’s note also leaked. Editor’s remarks are generally added as a tactic to generate excitement among the viewers for what could come next, especially with the series being on a break week.
While these remarks don’t always reveal what’s exactly ahead, they do anticipate the near future with a solid record. The issue’s editor’s note, released by Twitter user and renowned series news account @ONEPIECESPOILE1, suggests that someone will arrive in front of Luffy’s crew. While Dr Vegapunk has appeared in the previous few issues of Luffy’s gang, it seems needless to further hype his recent arrival in this topic. Since Dr Vegapunk has already been presented, it wouldn’t even be a “tease” in the traditional sense. As such, fans are speculating about whether this pertains to the recently-arrived Rob Lucci and CP0, or another, yet-to-be-introduced persona.
The most likely scenario is the former, with Rob Lucci likely to discover and appear in front of Luffy sometime throughout the issue. Because of the time commitment involved in drawing a fight scene between the two, it’s understandable that Oda has decided to take a week off this week. Bartholomew Kuma is a strong possibility, while it is more difficult to predict who may appear in One Piece Chapter 1068 outside the current cast members at Egghead. It was unclear in the previous issue whether Oda’s flight from Kamabakka Kingdom was in the past or the present when he showed readers that he was on the run.
So it’s possible that Kuma departed the Revolutionary Army’s headquarters before the events of the previous issue.
Even though it’s not Oda’s usual approach, he can surprise viewers by setting up the story of the series in an unexpected way. A new Marine Vice-Admiral or someone of equivalent rank is the most likely candidate, however, a new SWORD agent is also possible. If Vegapunk were to be revealed as the SWORD group’s commander, it would be a fantastic addition to the Egghead Island narrative. However, this is just conjecture as there is currently no official information on One Piece chapter 1068. Until the issue’s formal release on December 4, 2022, fans should not form any preconceived notions.
