One Piece Chapter 1048 Release Date, Time & Spoilers After Delay Explained

No new One Piece chapter this week.

May 3, 2022

The previous One Piece chapter was full of flashbacks, and we also saw Luffy covering the sky of the capital with his fist. Now, every fan is looking forward to the release of Chapter 1048. Well, after being on a break, One Piece is coming back with the next chapter this week.

Luffy and Kaido’s fight has just started in the One Piece anime series, but the battle is already far ahead in Eiichiro Oda’s manga series. Luffy is now powerful enough to show the Emperor of the sea, Kaido, why he will be the next King of Pirates. Of course, Kaido won’t be defeated this early, but it’s hard to deny that Luffy has surprised him with Gear 5. So, it would be interesting to see how Kaido will respond to Luffy’s attacks in the upcoming chapters.

One Piece Chapter 1048 Spoilers Are Finally Out

After a long wait, some detailed spoilers for One Piece Chapter 1048 are finally out. According to the leaks, the next chapter is titled “20 years,” and as the title suggests, the chapter will reveal what exactly happened all these years ago. A small flashback will feature Kaido, who’ll learn about Oden’s son. So, the ruler of the seas, along with Orochi, will kill everyone in his way to find Momonosuke. At this time, we’ll see Oden’s castle getting covered by flames.

While Momo tries to move the island away, Kaido faces Luffy’s attack without showing his back. Kaido will reveal his new Fire dragon form. In this form, everything that touches Kaido melts, so Luffy will counter Kaido’s technique with his new attack called “Gomu Gomu no Bajrang Gun.” Meanwhile, Orochi, who is still on fire, will try to take Komurasakiii, and that’s when Denjiro will return only to cut off Orochi’s head. On the last page, we’ll see Luffy and Kaido getting ready to take on each other’s attacks.
