One Piece Chapter 979 Hints at the possibility of a New All-Star

The One Piece manga is currently exploring the Wano arc. The alliance of the Strawhats, the Kid pirates, and the samurai of Wano are aiming to take down the pirate alliance of Kaido and Big Mom.

While we are already in the late stages of the arc, the war itself is just about to begin. It looks like there’s going to be some restructuring in Kaido’s crew before that happens.

Chapter 979 of One Piece hints at the possibility of a new All-Star. Kaido offers the Tobi Roppo a chance to upgrade their position by dueling an All-Star of their choice, if they can find his son Yamato.

In the chapter, we see the Tobi Roppo meeting with Kaido. It turns out King had called them under the name of Kaido as Who’s Who and Sasaki would not have responded otherwise.

King had been tipped off about Kaido’s family problem and had assembled the Tobi Roppo to help him out. There seems to be a lot of animosity between the King and the Tobi Roppo.

Kaido gives them the task of finding his son Yamato who disappeared a day before. He tells them that if they succeed, he will let them duel any of the All-Stars for their rank.

Who’s Who in particular is very excited about this opportunity. Jack and King, the only All-Stars present, seem to have no problem with this arrangement.

Who’s Who or Sasaki will most likely take the position of Jack or even Queen. It seems improbable that any of them could defeat King as he is the strongest All-Star.

Is Shanks the strongest in One Piece? Is he stronger than Kaido?

About One Piece

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, and has been collected into 95 tankōbon volumes.

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!

Seeking to be the greatest pirate in the world, young Monkey D. Luffy also heads toward the Grand Line in search of One Piece. 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.
