One Piece Episode 1037 Recap

One Piece Anime

Kaido catches up on Momonosuke and Shinobu after disposing of Kin’emon. The Beast Emperor discourages the anguished Momo, declaring that all hope is lost.

Seeing that Kaido has them cornered, Shinobu uses her Ripe-Ripe Fruit to cut off a part of Onigashima. Shinobu and Momo fall from the floating island, their status unknown.

The frog Mary that Momo used escapes the fall. The network of Marys finds out about the incident, reaching Bao Huang. They excitedly plan to reveal this and further demoralize the samurais and the Alliance.

Nami, Usopp, and Tama are running toward the performance stage. They plan to have Tama order those who ate her Kibi dango. Then, out of nowhere, Nami’s Climate Baton talks and shocks the trio.

Big Mom taunts Eustass Kid, saying she does not believe Luffy is alive. Trafalgar Law comes, disputing that the Luffy he knows and works with can do such a miracle.

Kid and Law, in turn, taunt Big Mom, telling her that the new ear doesn’t have a place for old-time pirates like them. This enrages Big Mom.

In Wano’s Flower Capital, a fire festival to honor the dead rages on. Toko attends the celebration with Kozuki Sukiyaki.

The smiling Toko wonders if his adoptive father, the late Shimotsuki Yasuie, is watching the fire.

In a guest parlor in the Onigashima castle, a shamisen-playing Mary reports the war’s status to CP0 agents. The CP0 spokesman remarks that none of the Alliance surrendered even if they lost Luffy.

Back to the trio of Nami, Usopp, and Tama, the Climate Baton talking was actually Zeus, who survived Hera’s attempt at consuming him.

Ulti pops out of nowhere, knocks down Usopp, and grabs Tama. Nami and Zeus attack her, but it is Usopp’s Sargasso that successfully separates Tama from Ulti.

Deep in the ocean, the crew of Heart Pirates aboard the submarine Polar Tang is spooked by a voice they hear.

They trace the voice and find an unconscious Luffy, surprised at how Luffy managed to communicate with them. They see he is still breathing and rescues him.

Yamato searches for and confronts Kaido. He calls the Beast Emperor by his name. Kaido is irritated by this and reprimands him.

Yamato announces that he is cutting ties with Kaido.
