Yes, you heard it right! One Piece 917 is delayed and there won’t be any new chapter this week as the author is taking a one week break. So, in this article, we are going to have a look at what to expect from the upcoming chapter!
Ever since the Wano Kingdom Arc began, it feels quite underwhelming and seems that because of all the hype created for the past several years about the story, it hasn’t lived up to the readers’ expectations. That’s just a personal thought, but the last chapter, One Piece 916 was really great as we saw Luffy back in action and fighting against a Sumo wrestler.
After O-Kiku chopped off the Yokozuna’s top knot, Urashima tries to eliminate her but Luffy walks in an challenges him to a sumo wrestling match. He says that he can do anything to O-Kiku once he wins the match. But Luffy easily manages to overpower the wrestler and sends him flying using Gear Third through Holdem’s house forcing him to come out into the open. We see Holdem’s holding O-Tama in the mouth of the lion on his stomach and the chapter ends with a shot of Luffy, Holdem, Basil Hawkins and Law promising a great matchup in the upcoming chapter.
One Piece Chapter 917 – What to Expect?
If you are expecting to see the other Straw Hats in the upcoming chapter, then there’s a high chance that none of them will appear as the story will focus on the rescue of O-Tama and the subsequent equation of her with Luffy, Zoro and Law.
For now, we can expect that there will be a fight between Holdem and his underlings versus Luffy, Zoro and O-Kiku where they’ll have to be careful as O-Tama’s held hostage in the mouth of the belly lion and one mistake means she will be crushed to death. Moreover, as both Basil Hawkins and Trafalgar Law are on their way to the Bakura District, there will surely be another battle between the two Supernovas and we’ll get to see how much both of them have grown.
I personally am looking forward to the development of O-Kiki’s character as I am quite liking it. She’s quite beautiful and looks innocent even, but is extremely skilled with the sword as shows on different occasions. Even Zoro told her that he won’t be watching her back, which means that he thinks she can take care of herself, so it would be really awesome to see just how her character is developed from here on out!
But there’s also a chance that the story will completely shift from Wano Kingdom and take us back to the Reverie as that’s still going on and give us more developments on what’s happening there. The story completely left us hanging on multiple mysteries like who is Im Sama, the giant straw hat, why Shanks meeting with the Gorosei and many more; so it would make sense if Oda sensei gave us more information on what’s happening on Mariejois.
One Piece 917 – Release Date
Since the manga is on break this week, the new release date of the chapter 917 is scheduled to be September 15, 2018 but the scans are likely to be out 2-3 days before that.
So, are you looking forward to the upcoming chapter of One Piece? What do you think is going to happen? Will Luffy and Co. manage to save O-Tama from the clutches of Holdem or will they be a part of a big battle that will involve even Hawkins and Law? Let us know in the comments section below!
