One Piece 1046 should have some major revelations in store for readers. What can fans expect out of the chapter?

p>One Piece's previous chapter gave the fans a proper look at Luffy in his new Gear 5th form which he gained access to after finally awakening his Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Nika fruit. With a rubber body that got strengthened even further and an ability that now allows him to fight with even greater freedom, Luffy has become incredibly powerful and is a match even for the likes of the Yonko such as Kaido.

One Piece 1046 will most certainly continue from where Chapter 1045 left off and continue the heated battle that is currently going on atop Onigashima. Luffy is, without a doubt, going to go all-out against Kaido but the Yonko is most certainly going to do the very same soon as the fight heads closer to its climax with each passing chapter.

What To Expect From One Piece 1046?

One Piece's previous chapter gave the fans a decent look at what Luffy's new transformation is capable of. According to Kaido, the form is rather unique even for someone who awakened their Devil Fruit. The ability to affect ones surrounding with their powers is the mark of a Paramecia type, however, transformations such as Luffy's is the mark of a Zoan type. Luffy somehow seems to be able to do both at the same time, which can be attributed to the fact that his Devil Fruit is quite special indeed.

It appears both Luffy and Kaido are close to their limits, as seen when Luffy started to lose his Gear 5th and Kaido also fell to his knees. One Piece 1046 will most certainly continue the fight but this time around, more focus could be thrown on Kaido. The last chapter gave fans an idea of what Luffy is capable of. Now, it could be time for Oda to reveal Kaido's awakening. Being a Mythical Zoan, Kaido most likely has a transformation-based awakening which fans could very well end up seeing in One Piece chapter 1046.

At the same time, the full extent of Luffy's powers hasn't been seen yet either. After all, Luffy is still getting used to his awakening as well. Fans could see more of what Luffy is capable of in chapter 1046 of the story as he tests himself against the very strongest creature to live in the One Piece world. Either way, the battle is now closer to its climax than ever and will likely conclude within the next few chapters.

One Piece 1046: Joy Boy Lore And Kaido Flashback?

Towards the end of the previous chapter, fans saw Kaido astonished by the fact that Luffy was fighting with immense freedom. According to him, he'd never seen anyone fight with as much freedom as Luffy before. Given that Kaido has a lot of knowledge about Joy Boy already, it wouldn't be a stretch to say that he could very well realize that Luffy is Joy Boy and quite possibly the man Kaido himself was waiting for years.

One Piece 1046 could potentially dive into more lore about Joy Boy through Kaido as he figures out that Luffy managed to become the person that he always wanted to be. This also opens up the room for a Kaido flashback, which fans have been desperately waiting for ever since the Onigashima war began. If a flashback does indeed take place, fans could get to see things such as Kaido's origins, how he met Rocks, and why he is so obsessed with the legend of Joy Boy. At the same time, this could also give fans a good look at the Rocks Pirates, and events such as the God Valley Incident as well.

As with every chapter, fans will also likely see bits from the rest of the Onigashima. It is quite interesting to note that one member of the CP0 is still alive and he could report the current events to the Gorosei in the Pangea Castle in Mariejois. The Elders could very soon find out that their attempt to stop Luffy only led to him awakening his Devil Fruit and that the person that they fear the most is back after 800 years. This could very well speed up the plot even further and see the World Government prepare for a Great Cleansing or the Final War, just like the one that took place in the Void Century. Either way, One Piece 1046 will definitely see the Wano Country arc edge even closer to its end as Kaido and Luffy's fight reaches its climax.

When Will One Piece 1046 Release?

One Piece's break week is edging closer, however, fans will get a new chapter this week as Oda usually writes three chapters before taking a break. One Piece Chapter 1046 is set to release on April 10, 2022, according to the MangaPlus. The chapter can be read for free on MangaPlus or alternatively on the Shonen Jump app as well.
