What happened last time?
One Piece Episode 1030 gave fans more memories of the friendship between Uta and Luffy when they were kids. The two kids talked about their dreams of changing the world for the better in the future, promising each other to make those dreams come true one day.
Unfortunately, the episode also focused on Luffy’s heartache after Shanks decided to abandon Uta. The future Straw Hat captain was devastated by the loss of his first friend, to the point that he grew to hate Shanks.
Eventually, Luffy understood that Shanks had his reasons for doing so, forgiving him and growing stronger through the experience.
What can you expect from One Piece Episode 1031?
After years of waiting to learn more about the enigmatic Shanks, fans will finally have the chance to learn more about the red-haired Emperor in One Piece Episode 1031. Although the episode will focus on Shanks’ relationship with Uta after he dumped her, it will also reveal many details about how Shanks sees the world.
In the final episode, it was revealed that Shanks’ involvement in the destruction of Elegia was tied in some way to Uta’s abilities. This week’s adventures are likely to focus on these events and their repercussions within One Piece’s story.
The episode will apparently also focus on Coby’s actions during the events of One Piece: Red, as he is the preview narrator for One Piece Episode 1031. We still don’t know how Kobby will contribute to the story, but it might have something to do with Shanks himself.
Fans are hoping One Piece Episode 1031 will further develop the character of Shanks, giving us information that has yet to be revealed in the manga. Either way, the prospect of an episode devoted entirely to one of the franchise’s most intriguing and beloved characters has fans of the show wishing Sunday came sooner.
