After a cathartic episode that brings many of Wano’s plot threads to a satisfying conclusion, A piece will take a short break before releasing episode #1079. This isn’t anything new for the Wano arc as before this point, the series had taken several breaks to deliver some truly incredible fight scenes. However, this break is probably not a sign of Sakuga’s upcoming excitement.
What time is One Piece episode #1079 released?
One Piece episode #1079, titled “Dawn Comes! The relaxation of Luffy and everyone!” will air on Sunday, October 15 at 9:30 a.m. Japan Standard Time (JST). It will then air simultaneously on Crunchyroll on October 14 at 7:00 p.m. PDT, 9:00 p.m. CT, and 10:00 p.m. Eastern (EST) in the United States. It will release on Sunday, September 17 at 3am British Summer Time (BST) for One Piece fans in the UK. Fans of the English dub will have to wait for that version to premiere on Funimation at a later date.
What happened in episode #1078 of One Piece?
The main plot development of episode #1078 is the reveal of Momonosuke and the Scabbard to the people of Wano. Momonosuke’s adult form was also revealed at that time, revealing him to be the spitting image of his father Oden. This allowed the people of Wano to more easily accept him as their new general after the defeat of Kaido and Orochi. As if Momo accepting the position of shogun wasn’t emotional enough, the episode also tells Tama’s tragic story, showing her being orphaned and then starving until Tenguyama found her. The episode ends with Yamato asking the Straw Hats if they can join his crew, which is a much less tense situation than in recent episodes.
One Piece Episode #1079 Will Let The Straw Hats Relax
Based on the title of episode #1079, it will likely show the Straw Hats taking a well-deserved break after all the intense fighting they had to do during the Onigashima Raid. The increased focus on the Straw Hats will also be a welcome change for fans, who haven’t had the chance to see the Straw Hats interact together in a peaceful setting in years. Episode #1079 will likely also show Luffy making a decision on whether Yamato will join the crew or not, which is a question many fans have been asking since their first introduction.
Often when celebrating the conclusion of a season, One Piece will release important information about the world at large. This could include new crew bounties but in this case it will likely also focus on showing how various characters will react when Luffy defeats Kaido. This means that although the battle of Wano may be over, One Piece episode #1079 and more will be extremely exciting for fans looking forward to seeing the series establish a new status quo going forward.
