One Piece 949 was filled with interesting stuff to the brim, and I think it was a chapter truly worth waiting two weeks for. From the cover of Shueisha’s Weekly Shounen Jump to the new color spread by Oda, everything was great, in our opinion. The chapter itself had a lot of interesting stuff as well, but all of it was focused on Udon Prison. Kaido’s men were being taken out one after the other, and they couldn’t do much to stop Luffy.
Their new weapons were effective at first, but Luffy quickly put a stop to all of them, and he was able to defeat Babanuki as well. With that, Udon came under Luffy’s direct control, and the final battle stays just eight days away. Now, let’s talk about One Piece 950, shall we?
Before we begin, please note this post may contain official spoilers from the next chapter of the manga. If being spoiled is not for you, I suggest that you stop reading the post here. However, if spoilers don’t bother you, we can get started. Also, note that we did not create the spoilers or leaked them. They’re available all over the internet.
One Piece 950 Spoilers
While we did get to see the aftermath of what happened at the Flower Capital, as expected, all the major battles had already been off-paneled by Oda. We didn’t get to see how Zoro got away, neither did we see how Sanji and XDrake fought.
Law’s fight against Hawkins was entirely offscreened as well and that’s very disappointing. However, what we do know is that the Strawhats got away and so did Zoro and Hiyori. Zoro’s plan is to get Shuusui back before the final battle and it’s going to be interesting to see how he faces off against Gyukimaru again.
Meanwhile, Sanji and the Strawhats are at an unknown place, but I think they’re nearby in Ringo. Trafalgar Law has been captured by Hawkins, which is perfectly understandable because the lives of his crewmates were on the line so he couldn’t fight properly. Drake and Hawkins are questioning Law now, and they want to know what exactly he plans to do here at Wano Country. It’ll be interesting to see whether Law will be tossed to Udon Prison as well, or if he’ll manage to escape somehow.
Speaking of Udon, Luffy offered Kid a helping hand and asked him to join the alliance, but after seeing what the previous alliance yielded, he says he’s done with the alliance and breaks out of Udon. Kid doesn’t want to join the alliance for now, but I’m sure that he’ll turn back sooner or later. He has to be a part of the alliance and that goes without saying.
Finally, we also got to see what Ashura Doji’s secret was. Apparently, 10 years ago, the samurai who wanted to free Wano lost patience and they attacked Onigashima, only to get crushed by Kaido. Ashura Doji shows the graves of the fallen to Kinemon, and he swears that in 8 days, Wano Country will be taken back from Kaido.
One Piece 950 Predictions
One Piece 950 will likely focus away from Udon Prison. With the last 3-4 chapter having been based on the story in Udon, it is time that we go back to the Flower Capital now. The Rasetsu district had some crazy stuff going on with Zoro fighting against Kyoshiro, and Sanji fighting against XDrake.
We didn’t see how they managed to get out of there. With the next chapter, we think we’ll see Zoro and Sanji having retreated to Ringo somehow. Law vs. Hawkins will likely have concluded off-panel as well, and we know the fans will be annoyed if that does happen, but that’s our opinion.
Moving on, we also didn’t get to see what Ashura Doji wanted to show to Kinemon. It seems that it is some sort of a big secret. We’ve waited for about two months to see what this secret is now, and hopefully, it’ll be revealed in One Piece 950.
One Piece 950 drops officially on July 29, 2019. The scans for the chapter will be out on July 26, 2019.
