One Piece Episode 979 Spoilers
In episode 978, the arrival of Straw Hats, Kid Pirates, and Heart Pirates feel the Akazaya with hope. Meanwhile, Kanjuro wonders why these pirate groups are there when he has constantly sent Orochi information. The Grifters are equally baffled, especially after the bomb attack they launched on Thousand Sunny on the previous day. The Straw Hats laughingly reveal that Sunny was built from the wood of Treasure Tree Adam, and mere bombing can never do anything to it.
When Luffy and others wonder why their other allies aren’t showing up, Kin’emon takes responsibility for Kanjuro’s betrayal. The Grifters reveal that they have sunk all the ships on the port, and Orochi has ensured that bridges connecting the region are destroyed as well. And then they reveal the most troubling information of all: the Beast Pirates have allied with the Big Mom Pirates.
While competing against each other, Luffy, Law, and Kid pulverize one of the ships belonging to the Beast Pirates. Soon, Kyoshiro shows up and destroys a second Beast Pirate ship. In episode 979, Kyoshiro’s real identity will likely be revealed. Kanjuro might take Momonosuke to Onigashima to deliver Oden’s son to Orochi and report what has transpired.
