Chapter 970 of “One Piece” revealed that Oden and the Nine Akazaya could have won the battle for Wano’s freedom if Kaido had fought fairly. The previous chapter already revealed that Wano’s Daimyo and his servants would be executed in three days. But, it seems that many things will happen in Chapter 971 of “One Piece” before fans can see Oden’s execution.
One Piece 971 Oden vs. Orochi and Kaido
In “One Piece” Zou Arc, fans learned that it was the Kozukis who made the stone ponglyphs, which carry the history of the world, including the Void period. Oden is the last remaining Kozuki who knows how to read the legendary stones that could lead pirates to “One Piece”. This knowledge is also Oden’s trump card against Kaido and Orochi.
Wano Daimyo may know that Kaido would like to have what he owns for his ambitions or future plans. Perhaps Oden would reach an agreement with Orochi and Kaido to give them the information they want in exchange for the freedom of their servants. And that I would tell them everything they need the day of their execution.
Fire in the castle
Oden could fool Kaido and Orochi, and on the day of his execution, he would refuse to tell them the secrets they want to know. Because of this, Kaido would look for Lady Toki at Kuri Castle or look for Oden’s diary in the hope that she could learn something from him. Frustrated and disappointed, Kaido, upon learning that there is nothing in Kuri Castle, would burn him to the ground.
Chapter 971 of “One Piece” could also reveal the traitor at Oden’s camp. In addition, it could show key personalities that were instrumental in helping the Nine Akazaya escape their imminent execution.
“One Piece” Chapter 971 would be delayed. The chapter will be released on February 16 in Japan. It is possible that the flashback of Oden’s story continues until Chapter 972, bearing in mind that there are still many reasons to discover.
