One Piece is slowly but surely going through the Wano arc with Episode 1044 on its way. In the previous episode, Toei animated Chapters 1020 and 1021 of the manga, continuing the battle between Robin and Brook vs. Black Maria. With over 35 chapters remaining for Wano, we’ve still got a long way to go before the Wano arc ends.
There are several moments and battles to look forward to in the upcoming episodes. For instance, Luffy is finally getting ready to head back to the fight, as he’s currently eating a lot of meat and asking Momonosuke to fly him back to Onigashima. You shouldn’t miss Luffy’s return, so here’s the air date for One Piece Episode 1044, along with its release times and plot.
One Piece Episode 1044 Air Date and Release Times
One Piece Episode 1044 will be released on Sunday, December 11, 2022, with the title “Clutch! A Demon Incarnate, Robin!.” There are no breaks or filler episodes in between, so Episode 1044 will be available this Sunday at the following times, depending on your time zone:
Japan Standard Time – 9:30 am Pacific Time – 7:00 pm Eastern Time – 10:00 pm Central Time – 9:00 pm British Summer Time – 3:00 am Australian Central Time – 11:30 am India Time – 7:30 am
One Piece Episode 1044 will follow the same release schedule as the previous episodes. After it releases in Japan, it takes 1 and a half hours before it releases in other countries.
One Piece Episode 1044 Plot
Unfortunately, Toei hasn’t revealed the plot of Episode 1044. Still, we can analyze the preview they showed in the previous episode, or you can check the upcoming manga chapters to get an idea of what Episode 1044 is about. Before that, here’s a quick recap of the last episode.
“In the dense mist, Brook is surprised to see his old friends, the Rumbar Pirates. Robin and Black Maria begin fighting in earnest, and Luffy asks Momonosuke to bring him back to Onigashima.”
Episode 1044 will likely cover the rest of Chapter 1021. Considering the next episode’s title, we might see Robin fully show her strength and abilities against Black Maria. Furthermore, we also see Luffy continue to eat meat to regain his strength for his return. And finally, the preview also shows Momonosuke talking to Shinobu while crying. What are the two talking about? You’ll have to watch the next episode since we don’t want to spoil much.
Where to Watch One Piece Episode 1044
Crunchyroll is the best place to watch One Piece since it simulcasts the latest episodes to other countries outside Japan. One Piece is also available on other platforms, but unlike Crunchyroll, they don’t have the latest episodes.
However, Crunchyroll may have some licensing issues in some regions, so you might have to get a VPN. Moreover, the latest episodes are only available in Japanese dubs since the English dub hasn’t reached the Wano arc. But don’t worry, the Japanese dub is accompanied by English subtitles, as usual.
