3. Recap of Episode 978
Episode 978, titled “The Worst Generation Charges In! The Battle of the Stormy Sea!” starts off with Luffy, Kid, and Law making their appearance on the sea.
Kaido’s men immediately go on the offensive with hopes to take them down quickly. However, Zoro finds this to be the ideal opportunity to use his new sword Enma. Usopp assists him with his Green Star to take down a part of their battleship.
Kanjuro is surprised to see Luffy and the others arrive. The information he had passed onto Orochi should have guaranteed their absence from the battlefield.
Kaido’s men, who were given the task of destroying Luffy’s ship, are surprised to see the ship unharmed. They were sure that they had bombed it.
Franky mockingly tells them that their simple bombs can’t damage the Thousand Sunny as it is built from the Jewel Tree Adam.
Luffy and the others notice that they are the only ones present on the sea. Luffy asks Kin’emon where their allies are, to which Kin’emon grovels and begs for forgiveness as he feels responsible for the plan’s leakage.
Kaido’s men proceed to attack Luffy and the others. While attacking, they mention that there is no way their allies will make it to Onigashima as they have destroyed all the ships and bridges, thus cutting off their path.
They also reveal that the feast at Onigashima is also to celebrate the newly formed alliance between the Animal Kingdom Pirates and the Big Mom Pirates.
Luffy, Kid, and Law, unbothered by this revelation, take their stance to attack the battleships. All the three of them order the other two to stay out of this as they all feel like they’re enough to take down this insignificant fleet of battleships.
The episode ends with Kyoshiro appearing on the scene and being asked to help by Kaido’s men. However, he ends up taking down Kaido’s battleship, surprising everyone.
