Predictions for Chapter 981 of One Piece manga

The upcoming chapter will finally be another battle centric chapter. In the previous chapter, angered Luffy wasted all the plannings, we have seen in the past few chapters. Kaido’s crew is now fully aware of Luffy’s arrival.

That being said, Zoro and Luffy will probably try to evacuate from the fight, as they do not want their plan to get ruined any further. Also, Kaido’s son might show up in this chapter.

We believe, Chapter 981 will cover –

Queen vs Tobiroppo member.

Jack vs Luffy.

Zoro vs King.

Apoo vs Kidd.

In “One Piece” Chapter 981, There are high possibilities of Scratchmen Apoo vs Eustass Kid. The Queen would most probably reveal the name of ‘Tobiroppo’ whom he is going to slay in the upcoming chapter.

Queen - One Piece Chapter 981

There have been predictions on the internet regarding Queen, King, and Jack joining the battle. However, as per our speculations, it won’t be possible until Sanji and other members show up. Moreover, Luffy still hasn’t shown up his new armament haki, there are high chances of his using it in One Piece 981.

Are we headed towards the final battle with Kaido? Since we are near the 1000th chapter of One Piece manga. Eiichiro Oda has some great plans for us. It could be Luffy vs Kaido, or Luffy pulling out a never seen before gear.

Readers all around the globe are looking forward to reading One Piece manga’s 981st chapter. The next chapter will surely reveal some major details from the story.

Where to read One Piece Chapter 981?

You can read the One Piece 981 online exclusively on Viz. You can read the One Piece manga in English, Espanol, and other languages on the Manga plus app.

One Piece Chapter 980

Like this chapter, the previous one was delayed as well. Chapter 980 was titled, “Fighting Music”. Luffy got angry when he saw the Beast Pirates wasting excess Oshiruko (the red bean soup) on the floor. At first, Zoro tries to stop him but when he realized what the beast pirates have done. Even Zoro goes on a rampage with Luffy.

Apoo notices Luffy and uses this as an opportunity to get some praise from the Queen. Meanwhile, Queen is shown angry at someone from ‘The Flying Six’. In the upcoming chapters, there are high possibilities of Queen annihilating a member of Tobiroppo. On the other hand, Queen has offered the seat of an unknown member of the Flying Six to the one who will catch Luffy and Zoro.

Apoo then uses his “Fighting Music” to attack Luffy and Zoro. While Luffy stands unharmed, Zoro has got a cut from Apoo’s attack. On the other hand, Eustass Kid has finally decided to break silence and take his revenge on Apoo for betraying him in the past. At the end of this chapter, Kidd uses Punk Gibson against Apoo.

The members of ‘The Flying Six’ are:

  • X Drake
  • Ulti
  • Page One (human form)
  • Who’s Who
  • Black Maria
  • Sasaki

Which member will Queen slay? We will surely get an answer to that in the upcoming One Piece manga chapter 981.

Chapter 981 of One Piece manga might start with confused and gravely injured Apoo.
