One Piece Episode 980 Spoilers
In episode 970, as Luffy, Law, and Kid continue to compete against each other while destroying the Beast Pirates’ ships, Kyoshiro arrives with the Yakuza. The initial dread that the Akazayas feel is turned into joy and hope when Kyoshiro reveals his real identity. Denjiro tells his comrades how he has spent years masking his hatred for Orochi as subordination. As he did so, he was able to free 1,000 samurai.
He went on to reveal what he perceived as a clever plan on Kin’emon’s part, intentionally misreading Yasuie’s altered message so that the spy among them would not know the real location of the gathering was at the wharf by Port Habu. However, the rest of the Akazayas realize what has happened: Kin’emon really didn’t understand the message. As the other allies arrive, Kanjuro draws a crane and flies away on it with Momonosuke. In episode 971, as he is taken away, Momonosuke will likely ask his friends and his family’s retainers to continue fighting without worrying about his fate. Enraged by his abduction, Luffy and his crew might destroy any resistance that Kaido sends their way.
