The latest One Piece Chapter 1104, titled “Thank You, Daddy”, comes full circle from the events of Sabaody Archipelago, making a 15-year-old reference in one of “one of the great panels best” of all time.
One Piece Chapter 1104 sets up the same multiplayer from Sabaody, starting in 2008. With Worst Generation members like Luffy, Zoro, and Bonney (and technically Caribou), Marines like Kizaru and Sentomaru, and Jaygarcia Saturn playing an even larger role than a Celestial Dragon, many One Piece fans note that the current theme of slavery with Kuma not only refers to but also completes the events of Sabaody — when Kuma unleashed one of his fiercest punches since Luffy flattened St. Charlos at Human Auction House.
The debate erupted after the premiere of Solo Leveling which was said to beat the One Piece Gear 5 episode
One Piece and Solo Leveling fans are arguing over claims that Gear 5 Luffy’s animated premiere was surpassed by the manhwa-based premiere.
As one of the longest-running manga series in history, One Piece can and often does take its chances to create themes that span arcs, and even decades in this case. The series has become famous for its callbacks, and the debate over whether Oda intentionally foreshadowed or just left enough room for himself is a constant source of debate among fans. The truth lies somewhere in the middle, as the One Piece creator revealed that many important plot points were not planned in advance.
As Kuma ends this chapter on a strong note, One Piece is looking forward to a breakout year for the series. The “Egghead” season has been a huge hit with fans, and Netflix licensing the current season means that two of the world’s biggest streamers are now both showing the anime. Meanwhile, the manga’s highly anticipated Chapter 1105 will be released on Sunday, January 28 for North American readers (Monday, January 29 for readers in Japan).
