One Piece chapter 1049 spoilers leak online
The early spoilers for One Piece chapter 1049 have now leaked online via the popular and reputable OPspoiler Twitter page.
Per the post, the upcoming manga chapter will be titled “The World We Should Aspire To” and will feature someone burning Niji and Yonji’s book on the cover.
In a flashback, Kaidou revisits his childhood and growing up in the Vodka kingdom. During his teenage years there, he met Whitebeard who told Kaidou that Rocks wanted to be introduced to him.
Briefly cut back to the present, some of the water from Raizo is streaming out of the castle and is starting to stop the fire clouds created by Momonosuke – who quickly rushes to make a new one.
Luffy says that he will one day create a world where none of his friends will ever starve again – hitting Kaidou with an incredibly powerful attack that knocks him to the ground of the Flower Capital.
One final flashback to Kaidou’s earlier days, where he tells King that the only man who will be able to defeat him…is Joy Boy.
Fans should note that more detailed spoilers are expected to be shared online within the next three days, so keep checking back in for the latest updates.
