We can expect to see Yamato, Kaido’s daughter, intervene and stop Kaido from doing as he pleases. We see both of them throw hands, but it will lead to Yamato’s inevitable loss.

We will also see the ongoing battle amongst everyone favoring the Samurai after hearing the words of reassurance from Momonosuke.

The raw scans and spoilers for chapter 1016 of One Piece manga have been leaked. The chapter is titled “This Is Otama.” The chapter starts off with the people of Wano enjoying the fire festival, unaware of the battle taking place at Onigashima.

The CP0 is carefully analyzing the battle and states that the battle seems to be majorly favoring Kaido. However, they find it amusing that the disparity in manpower keeps shrinking with each passing minute.

Zeus morphs with Nami’s Clima-Tact and helps her use a new attack and defeat Ulti. Next, Kaido threatens Yamato to do as she is ordered and become the shogun of Wano.

However, Yamato has decided to stall Kaido till Luffy returns because she believes that Luffy is the one Oden talked about who will change the world.

4. Recap of Chapter 1015

Chapter 1015, titled “Chained,” starts off with everyone being made aware that Luffy has been defeated by Kaido and is sinking to the bottom of the sea.

The entire battlefield is in chaos after hearing this news. Everyone is losing their will to fight.

Chopper is caught off-guard by this news while he is engaged in battle with Queen and Perospero. They use this chance to sneak an attack on Chopper and the others.

However, Sanji, who is carrying an injured Zoro, makes it just in time. He attacks Queen with so much force that Queens ends up spiraling in the air, deflecting all the arrows shot by Perospero back towards him.

Sanji reassures Chopper’s faith in Luffy and hands over the responsibility of healing Zoro to him. Sanji then proceeds to face Queen, which in turn encourages everyone around him. 

Meanwhile, in the castle interior on the first-floor attic, Kaido stands beside the body of an injured Kin’emon who was trying to stall time while Momonosuke escapes.

As Momonosuke is escaping with Shinobu, he spots a frog that Kaido used to announce his victory over Luffy. He uses this opportunity to convey a message to everyone.

Momonosuke assures everyone that Luffy is still alive and he will definitely return and defeat Kaido. He requests them to continue fighting until their last breath without losing hope because Luffy will win.

Around the same time, Law’s crew members that are underwater happened to find the sinking body of Luffy and head to rescue him. 

The chapter ends with Law pulling up on Big Mom and supporting Kid, asking him to play nice until Big Mom is defeated. Yamato, Kaido’s daughter, also calls Kaido out, itching for a fight.

One Piece is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine since July 22, 1997.

The man who had acquired everything in this world, the Pirate King, is Gol D. Roger. The final words he said at the execution tower were “My treasures? If you want it, I’ll let you have it. Look for it; I left all of it at that place.” These words sent many to the seas, chasing their dreams, headed toward the Grand Line, in search of One Piece. Thus began a new age!

His diverse crew is joining him along the way, consisting of a swordsman, marksman, navigator, cook, doctor, archaeologist, and cyborg-shipwright, this will be one memorable adventure.
