One Piece chapter 1008- Recap

In the last chapter, various fans were shocked, just like the Scabbards, to see Oden return. They were confused and conflicted about whether he was Oden, however, amongst all the chaos, a voice of reason came from Ashura, who told the others that it wasn’t Oden, but Kanjuro. Ashura and Kanjuro battled it out, and Ashura was badly injured.

Jack appears in front of the Scabbards, and Inuarashi prepares to fight him off alone, elsewhere, Orochi and Fukurokuju are revealed to be alive, as they start fires inside the Skull Dome. We are yet to find out how they survived, and this will most likely be revealed in the coming chapters.

This is the very first time we see Kaido’s hybrid form. Many fans are disappointed as the hybrid wasn’t as powerful or intimidating as they had hoped it would be. During the battle, it can be noticed that Kado is bruised-up, while Big Mom is still going strong, without any bruises. This is another testament to her strength, showing just what a monster she is.

We also witness Momonosuke’s powers as he describes Luffy’s condition. Fans are interested to know more about it. Luffy is still fiery and confident that he will defeat Kaido. Zoro and Law agree that Kaido and Big Mom must be separated, as this will help them defeat the Yonkos.
