After 2 weeks of rest, One Piece 2022 begins with the first news about chapter 1037. This new chapter is called Long Jiu Bagua. It seems that this is another variation from Kaido’s “Thunder Umbrella Bagua”. From the title of the chapter we can also guess that this new chapter will focus on the battle between Kaido and Luffy. With the familiar motif of One Piece, it is likely that the Eight Trigrams Long Jiu will be a new move with greater power and destructive power than the Yonko Kaido. It is possible that now the strongest creature in the world feels that the opponent Luffy is no longer as easy to play as before, he needs to use his special skills to defeat the captain of the Straw Hat Pirates.
Immediately, the information about the new chapter and Kaido’s moves made the One Piece fan community stir up and talk excitedly. Many readers think that the Eight Trigrams Long Jiu is probably Kaido’s ulti (ultimate move) for Luffy, an opponent that this Yonko must use all his abilities and strength. Many other humorous readers think that there will be more timeskip, one more white eye of Luffy in this Wano arc.
It is true that there has never been a main character that when they are “sick” makes fans excited and gloating like One Piece. Luffy will have to face Kaido’s great technique and the image of the Straw Hat captain being beaten up right in the first chapter of the new year 2022 makes many readers feel great.
Besides, Kaido’s Eight Trigrams Dragon Jiu was introduced in chapter 1037 also made many One Piece fans start talking about Gear 5 or a new form of Luffy’s power to confront Luffy. At the beginning of the new year, Luffy being bullied can make many fans happy, but Gear 5 or a new form of power of the Straw Hat captain in the new year 2022 is also a special mark, isn’t it?
What do you guys think about the new One Piece chapter called Long Jiu Bagua, will the first new chapter of 2022 see Luffy being “beaten up”? Please leave your comments!
