One Piece Chapter 979 Recap
The previous chapter is not as action-packed as before but it is still an interesting chapter due to the character progress and more introduction of Yonko Kaido’s family. Chapter 979 titled “Family Trouble” showcased the gathering of the strong members of Beasts Pirates.
There, we spotted the Beasts Pirates’ All-Stars and the Flying Six also known as Tobiroppo. The spread also sees the return of the traitor Kanjuro after kidnapping Momonuske, it was his first time in Onigashima and the Kaido’s force still don’t know that he was their ally. Kaido still can’t see his son named Yamato which why he ordered the Flying Six to find him. Anyone who managed to find his son will be having a chance any of the All-Stars and will replace them if they defeat them.
Meanwhile, Kinemon’s forces have started moving to the east part of Onigashima, Denjiro’s forces also moved to the southern part, and Law’s forces are now travelling underwater towards Kaido’s castle. Just before the forces started to invade, Kid’s crew rushed in towards the battlefield.
Luffy is aware that Kid doesn’t know the plan and decide to pursue and stop them but he failed. As Luffy started searching for Kid, he found himself in a banquet where lots of foods have been gathered. There he meets some enemies who are throwing the red bean soup. As the two enemies fight to throw the soup, they mentioned and belittle the people of Okobore town. Luffy remembered how happy O-Tama was when he gave her a bowl of soup. This triggers Luffy and it seems that he’s ready to punch the enemies.
