One Piece Episode 1052 Plot

As usual, Toei hasn’t revealed the plot of Episode 1052. Still, we can analyze the previews and manga chapters to figure it out. Before that, here’s a quick recap of the last episode.

“Yamato helps Momonosuke conquer his fear of flying and the two take on the most important task of saving Onigashima. Meanwhile, Luffy and Kaido clash which parts the heavens. The clear skies help Duke Dogstorm and Cat Viper finally defeat their foes.”

The preview shows that Onigashima is now on the verge of dropping into the Flower Capital, so Yamato and Momonosuke try to find a way to stop it. Meanwhile, Luffy continues to clash with his fellow emperor, Kaido, hoping to free Wano once and for all. Furthermore, Zoro and Sanji hope to finish up their respective fights against King and Queen.


Where to Watch One Piece Episode 1052

If you want to watch One Piece, Crunchyroll is your best bet since it simulcasts the latest episodes to other countries outside Japan. However, Crunchyroll may not be available in your country due to licensing issues, so you might need to get a VPN.

You should also know that Crunchyroll only offers the latest episodes in Japanese since the English dub has just started the Wano arc. On the other hand, alternative streaming services are available in some regions, such as Bilibili, for viewers in Asia.
