What Happened Previously On One Piece?
As planned, Mononosuke tried creating Flame Clods to move Onigashima, but his clods were weak, and they quickly vanished. Yamato left to save Onagashima. He entered the Skull Dome to prevent the explosion that could take place because of the explosives on the island when Onigashima fell on the Flower Capital.
The scene then shifted to Lucci and Guernica inside the castle, who talked about Mononosuke’s dragon form and the ongoing battle. Lucci updated him on how the World Government planned to capture the Wano Capital in case Kaido lost. He also mentioned that the backup was on its way and then told him they needed to capture Nico Robin. The next scene revealed Kaido’s minions trying to capture Robin while Brook tried to protect her.
In the meantime, Sanji and Queen’s battle intensified, and Sanji used Diable Jambe against him. Queen detached his head and tail from the main body and trapped Sanji. Queen crushed Sanji and broke his bones unless he accidentally fired his missiles on himself, freeing him from his hold.
But surprisingly, Sanji was hardly injured by the attack, although his bones were broken. Queen then used his sword to behead Sanji, but his blade broke after hitting his neck, and Sanji, on the other hand, just felt a little pain in the neck. Sanji started to realize that his body was acting similarly to his sibling, and he got stressed as he didn’t want to be like him.
