Episode 1059 recap
One Piece episode 1059 began with several people attacking Kazenbo to no avail. Yamato then realized that she was in a race with Kazenbo toward the armory after it became clear that the spirit was deliberately headed to the basement. CP0, meanwhile, continued their relentless pursuit of Nico Robin, who was still accompanied by Brook.
However, Scratchmen Apoo and X Drake both distracted CP0, unintentionally assisting Robin and Brook in escaping yet again. Sanji, meanwhile, remained unwavering in his determination to make Queen pay.
Queen, in turn, decided to attack Zoro, saying there was no chance he’ll defeat King. Queen claimed this to be due to the fact that King belonged to the Lunarian race, who were once thought to be gods. Sanji then asked Queen how such a powerful race became extinct. However, Queen had no answer.
The episode then focused on Zoro’s fight against King, with the former still unable to damage the latter. Enma then began uncontrollably drawing out Zoro’s Haki.
The episode ended as the stress of having his Haki forced out caused Zoro to realize that both Enma and his Wado Ichimonji were both made by Shimotsuki Kozaburo.
What to expect (speculative)
As showcased in the episode’s preview, One Piece episode 1060 will primarily focus on a flashback story regarding Zoro and Shimotsuki Kozaburo. Resultantly, fans should fully learn who Shimotsuki Kozaburo is and what the significance of this flashback and the connection is. An explanation as to why Enma is so powerful may also be on the cards.
However, once this flashback concludes, it’s unclear what direction One Piece episode 1060 will go in. While a continued focus on Zoro would make sense, it doesn’t seem any more likely than a return to focus on Sanji versus Queen or even Kid and Law versus Big Mom.
Considering the erratically shifting nature of the narrative’s focus in previous episodes, it’s best for fans to expect the same from 1060.
