Things are heating up in One Piece and Eiichiro Oda has completely surprised us with the story so far! All of us thought that Luffy vs. Kaido will be at the finale of the arc, but that’s not the case as Luffy’s already punched Kaido and started a fight in the recent chapter, and it’s only going to get more epic in the upcoming One Piece chapter 923 once it’s out!
We saw that true power of Kaido as he descended down upon the Okobure town in his “Dragon” form at the end of chapter 921 and the previous chapter 922 ended on a more epic note. We get to see the reactions of the alliance members on seeing Kaido as a dragon and Kinemon is clearly angry that Zoro, Luffy and Law were exposed which made Kaido come to the town himself. Luffy immediately rushes to Kaido after he realizes that the town and its people are in danger and Law follows him, preventing others from exposing themselves. In the town, Kaido talks with Shutenmaru and tells him that he remembers him, which further makes me think that Shutenmaru was one of Oden’s allies who fought against Kaido and the Shogun.
Moreover, we see that Kaido is completely drunk and Jack’s worried that he’d go on a rampage in the town and destroy the people, who are the workforce of the factory. Hawkins steps in and tells him that Luffy and Law are at the ruins of Oden Castle to drive him away from the town, which works fine!
It’s also important to note that Momonosuke is connected with Kaido somehow, as he was shown to be uncomfortable when Dragon Kaido appeared. So, there may be some important role that Momonosuke’s going to play in the upcoming chapters!
One Piece Chapter 923 Spoilers
Kaido starts going towards the Oden Castle, and the members of the alliance are clearly flustered at seeing him approach them. Kaido then fires a “Heat Breath” attack that completely destroys the ruins of the castle which angers Luffy and he immediately leaps in the air and punched Dragon Kaido in the head!
The chapter ended on a high note and we’ve been waiting for the upcoming chapter to drop so that we can see what will be the consequences of Luffy’s actions. The spoilers suggest that Dragon Kaido is going to transform, maybe back to his human form or something else entirely, and fight against Luffy. Law will definitely join the fight to aid Luffy as he’s no way strong enough to take on a Yonko.
The only way Luffy can save himself is to run away, but that’s not going to happen as he thinks that his friends have been hurt by that attack. Even though we know for a fact that every single of them is safe and sound, Luffy doesn’t and will not back down without a fight. So, Law will have no option but to provide support and make sure that both of them don’t end up dead.
Kaido is someone who’s been unsuccessful in dying so far, so it pretty much conveys the fact that Luffy’s punch didn’t even affect him a little bit. We may see Kaido getting a bit sobered up in the next One Piece chapter 923 after seeing Luffy and Law in front of him.
There are speculations that the duo will get defeated in the fight and captured and they will meet Eustass Kid as prisoners. If that happens, then the Straw Hats and the alliance members are going to come up with a plan to rescue them before their attack on Onigashima, or the rescue op will take place at the same time as the festival. Since there isn’t much information available on the chapter at the moment, we can only predict the events that may happen. If the spoilers are leaked before the official release, then we’ll update the article to let you know all about it.
One Piece Chapter 923 Release Date
It’s great to see that there’s no break this week, which means that the next chapter will release as per its schedule. So, you can expect the official release date to be 5th November, 2018 but the scans of the chapter will probably come out 2-3 days prior to that. Even if you read the scans, make sure to read the official release as well and show your support to the mangaka as well as the anime and manga community!
