One Piece Episode 1049 Plot
The plot of Episode 1049 hasn’t been revealed yet, but we can analyze the previews and manga chapters to get an idea. Before that, here’s a quick recap of the last episode.
“The battle between Kaido and Yamato gets intense. Backed into a corner, Yamato remembers three great swordsmen who he met when he was a child. Their stunning choice for the future of the Land of Wano encourages Yamato.”
After crashing down in the last episode, Momonosuke looks to redeem himself in the next episode. The preview shows Momonosuke trying to conquer his fear of heights, with him and Luffy finally finding their way to the floating Onigashima. With that, we can expect Luffy to help Yamato fight his father, Kaido, when he arrives at the rooftop. Furthermore, we’ll likely see a showdown between Momonosuke and Kaido in their dragon forms.
Where to Watch One Piece Episode 1049
Crunchyroll is still the best place to watch One Piece since it simulcasts the latest episodes to other countries outside Japan. However, Crunchyroll isn’t available in some countries due to licensing issues, so you might need to get a VPN.
One Piece is also available on other streaming platforms, but they don’t have the latest episodes as Crunchyroll does. You should also know that the newest episodes are only available in Japanese since the English dub has just started the Wano arc.
