Oda always knows how to surprise readers with unexpected details. While fans are waiting for a strong, shining Luffy in the beginning of 2022, Oda made an extremely harsh “turn” when One Piece chapter 1037 and also the opening chapter of the new year was called “Long live”. Eight Trigrams of Death”. With a long experience of reading One Piece, it seems that the new year is the moment when Kaido swings his mace. The ability “Long Jiu Bagua” is a new technique of this Yonko and he decided to use it to confront Kaido.

Of course, One Piece fans, unlike other series, are very excited that Kaido will shine in the new chapter in early 2022 and may be able to feed Luffy. Besides, many readers who are very good at relating One Piece events realize one thing that Oda seems to be taking the idea of Chinese martial arts to create a set of moves and skills. Battle of Yonko Kaido. This is somewhat reasonable when in One Piece chapter 1037, Kaido used “Long Jiu Eight Trigrams” to fight Luffy.
In movies, often the people who exercise the right are in a state of intoxication, not distinguishing between true and false, right and wrong. The eyes are lethargic, the gestures are sloppy and brooding. The more alcohol, the more sublimated and powerful martial arts. In terms of personality and character creation of Kaido, it seems that this Yonko also seems to often fight in a drunken state. Meanwhile, Loi O Ba Quai or the latest Long Tuu Ba Quai are often spontaneous moves, “no moves to win with right moves” just like the way that drug users often use. It seems that Kaido appears drunk, drinking a lot and seems bored with life is not a coincidence, this personality is closely related to this Yonko’s strength and fighting skills.
Basically, many One Piece readers think that with the “authoritarian power” that Kaido uses, it is likely that Luffy will be “banned” in the new chapter in early 2022. Most likely the captain of the Straw Hat Pirates will have to continue. Use your “baby” Haki and unleash your new powers to overcome a truly powerful Kaido.
