One Piece Episode 1056 Plot
Unfortunately, Toei hasn’t revealed the plot of Episode 1056. However, we’ll analyze the previews to get an idea of what it’s about. You can also read the manga to be adapted, which will most probably be the rest of Chapter 1030. Before we continue, here’s a quick recap of the last episode.
“Kin’emon survives his defeat in battle, having been cut into two pieces. Meanwhile, Kanjuro gives his “final performance,” creating a flame monster and setting the castle on fire.”
The next episode will most likely focus on the battle between Trafalgar D. Law and Eustass Kid vs Big Mom. Based on the preview, Law and Kid will be backed into a corner due to Big Mom’s overwhelming power. However, the narrator also mentions that they’ll awaken their Devil Fruits and work together to take down Big Mom. Will the awakened Op-Op Fruit and Magnet-Magnet Fruit be enough to defeat the Emperor? You’ll have to watch Episode 1056 to find out.
Where to Watch One Piece Episode 1056
Crunchyroll is still the best place to watch One Piece as it simulcasts the latest episodes to other countries outside Japan. However, you may need a VPN to watch One Piece on Crunchyroll due to licensing issues.
It’s also worth noting that Crunchyroll only offers the latest episodes in Japanese since the English dub hasn’t caught up yet. Meanwhile, other streaming services are available in some regions, such as Bilibili, for viewers in Asia.
