One Piece 968 spoilers: Oden VS Orochi - Kaido appears!

This One Piece article is based on spoilers. Only those interested in spoilers should take a read.

One Piece 968 spoilers are finally out. Raw scans of the upcoming manga chapter were posted on Reddit and Facebook today. And it looks like we are finally going to see some serious action as the flashback of Oden comes near to its conclusion.

The title of the upcoming chapter will be Oden’s Return. It bridges some gap from the moment they find the treasure and the moment they drop Oden at Wano. So far there is no detail about Whitebeard showing up in the chapter.

Parting from the Pirate King’s crew

A lot of spoiler images show the sad parting of Oden from his latest crew. These may be the scenes following the first pages of chapter 958. Naturally, Roger Pirates celebrated their success after finding Joy Boy’s treasure.

From the spoiler images posted on Facebook, it seems like Oden was just dropped at Wano. There was no indication that Roger and the rest of his crew remained in the country for some time. Maybe they still had some important errands that they just don’t have much time to linger.

It is evident in another spoiler image where Roger was seen with Sharley. However, it is also possible that that was just a flashback when they were on Fishman Island.

Oden takes back Wano from Orochi

When Oden returns to Wano, his first order of business was to confront Orochi. In the previous chapter, Oden already knew that something ominous was happening in the country. He knew he had to do something about it but had to forgo for the time being until they finish their journey.

Among others, the most prominent change in the country was the existence of large weapons factories established by Orochi. It will be remembered in chapter 965 that the weapons factory was part of Orochi’s plot to entice strong people to be his allies.

Since it has been years since Orochi’s plot, it is possible that by that time he already had some contacts from the underworld black market. Since the old lady who helped him had years of experience outside Wano, she may even be the source of Orochi’s connections outside.

Kaido appears

Naturally, Oden was mad at Orochi for what he has done in the country. Oden had almost no idea about what happened after he left Wano. I bet he is not even sure how Orochi became the shogun in the first place.

In response to his anger, he marched into the shogun’s palace in search of Orochi. According to a spoiler thread on Reddit, Orochi was trying to convince Oden about something. Probably to spare his life. Oden’s response was to cut Orochi first and then he’ll think about it.
