‘One Piece’ Episode 960 to feature Kozuki Oden’s legendary story, major flashbacks


One Piece Episode 960, titled “The Best Samurai in Wano Country! Kozuki Oden Appears,” will be true to its title. Fans will finally see the journey of the daimyo in Kuri, as he plays a major role in the entire Wano arc.

The storyline itself is connected to Oden, along with the Flower Capital’s freedom and opening Wano to the world. Fans may also see a significant flashback of Kaido and Oden’s fight in One Piece Episode 960, revealing the strength the former Shogun’s son has.

Episode 960 preview, spoilers, and more

The new episode preview showed Oden eating something, and then it suddenly shifted to a scene where the Thousand Sunny ship exploded.

Orochi is celebrating what happened, as he successfully destroyed the vessels, which are on their way to Wano. He also believes the Straw Hat pirates are now gone.

Opposite of Orochi’s reaction, the Red Scabbards and Momonosuke are both sad to see the ship’s destruction. They then promise to get to Wano to take their revenge.

The trailer then ends with Oden, jumping off a clip and is all ready to fight.

According to BlockToro, One Piece Episode 960 may feature a major flashback to 20 years ago to give viewers a glimpse of Oden’s first meeting with Kinemon. It may also reveal how the Red Scabbards have become his followers.

Elsewhere, Luffy and his pirates are now ready to launch their attack on the Fire Festival. However, there will be a significant twist that fans have to wait and see.

The start of Oden’s legendary story

Duniaku added One Piece Episode 960 might begin the legendary story Oden has. The Akazaya Nine will remember how Oden, who they call the “master,” made them the great samurais that they are today.

The new episode will show how strong Oden is, though Wano residents found him arrogant at first.

In case some don’t know, Oden is the son of the Shogun Kozuki Sukiyaki. There is more to reveal about his story, and it may be disclosed in the next episode.

Release Date

One Piece Episode 960 is set to be out on Sunday, Jan. 31, around 9:30 a.m. Japan Standard Time, per Otakukart News. It can be seen for free on Crunchyroll, AnimeLab, Funimation, and Netflix.

Its English translations are expected to drop in other parts of the world at a later time. So, the international audience will have the chance to see One Piece Episode 960 on its official channels.
