May 12, 2022

After the previous chapter’s cliffhanger, One Piece fans are looking forward to the official release of chapter 1049. Well, some spoilers of the next chapter have surfaced on the internet ahead of its release. While the leaks don’t reveal much, we do learn the outcome of Luffy and Kaido’s latest attacks.

We’ve seen several battles at the Onigashima coming to an end in the recent chapters. Zoro, Sanji, Kid, and Law have finally defeated their opponent, and now, everyone has been looking at Luffy and Kaido’s fight. Straw Hat Pirates are definitely surprised after seeing their captain’s Gear 5 transformation. However, Luffy has to use every new ability up his sleeve to defeat the Emperor of the seas.


Kaido is still standing against Luffy, but Eiichiro Oda has confirmed that Luffy and Kaido’s battle is reaching its climax. Well, the spoilers for Chapter 1049 do give us the impression that we are reaching the current arc’s end.

One Piece Chapter 1049 Spoilers Are Out

According to the spoilers, the upcoming chapter is titled “The World we Should Aspire to.” In the forthcoming installment, Luffy tells Kaido what kind of world he wants to create, and the chapter’s title has been hinting toward the same.

In Chapter 1049’s cover, we see someone burning Niji and Yonji’s books. In the ongoing story arc, we’ve seen flashbacks of Momonosuke, Luffy, and Yamato; however, the next chapter will finally give us a Kaido’s flashback. We see Kaido’s childhood in the Kingdom of Vodka, where Kaido learns from Whitebeard that Rocks wants to meet him.

In the present, the water that Raizou released in the castle starts coming out, and “Cloud of the Flames” starts disappearing from the sky. But fortunately, our beloved Momonosuke started creating a new cloud.

Finally, the chapter takes us back to Luffy and Kaido’s fight. Before landing the blow on Kaido, Luffy says that he wants to create a world where none of his friends would starve. After that, the Straw Hats Pirate’s Captain punches Kaido, who then falls down on the ground of the Flower capital.

Of course, it doesn’t confirm that Kaido is finally defeated, but it’s safe to assume that the tables have now turned against him. Also, the chapter teases the ultimate outcome with another flashback, where Kaido confirms to the King that only Joy Boy can defeat him.
