One Piece episode 980 recap

In episode 980 of One Piece, Kanjuro kidnapped momonosuke and ran away with him. Draw a bird that takes it through the air. Kanjuro flies towards Onigashima, but Sanji attacks him midway.

Momo’s speech

Sanji uses Air Walk and launches into the sky. He reaches Kanjuro and starts kicking him. Kanjuro defends himself using his brush and pushes Sanji away. He starts to draw something with his hair and it turns into dark clouds. Turns out it’s actually a cloud of ink that rains arrows of ink on everyone.

The samurai begin to deflect them with the sword, but some are injured. Momo is frustrated, gets up and addresses everyone. He says they don’t need to worry about him because he will save himself. Luffy applauds his determination.

First son of the sea

Kanjuro flees and the group of samurai begins to march towards Onigashima. All enemy ships also retreated. However, just when things seem too easy, a cannon hits one of the samurai ships from afar. One of the Beast Pirates uses a long-range cannon, capable of firing at great distances.

Losses continue to mount and other ships sink. To save the alliance, Jinbe arrives from the bottom of the ocean and beheads the enemy ship. He announces that he returned as promised to Luffy and that he is now a member of the Strawhats Pirates.

Kinemon presents the plan in front of all the samurai. But Denjiro thinks that maybe this is the same plan he presented to Kanjuro to trick him, when it is the real plan. Law takes the situation in hand and presents a revised plan.

They will split into two forces and approach Onigashima from the left and the right. Law will take the samurai in his submarine and transport them to the rear of Onigashima. Kid and Luffy will act as a decoy and enter through the front door.

Strawhats show

Luffy’s ship bursts into the front door and Strawhats attacks the enemies stationed there. It does not take them long to defeat the enemies. The Akazaya and the others are impressed and prepare to go ahead according to their plan.
