‘One Piece’ Episode 971 may reveal the reason behind Oden’s surprising behavior


Fans will continuously see the backstory of Kozuki Oden in One Piece Episode 971. The new episode will reveal the mystery behind Oden’s surprising attitude in the previous episode after he danced naked in front of the crowd.

Oden went to the Flower Capital, completely mad, to face Orochi. However, after their talk, he walked out of the castle, and no one knew what happened inside. Will One Piece Episode 971 reveal what occurred?

A violent Oden

According to Epic Dope, fans are about to see a violent Oden in the next episode. He will be going crazy against Orochi and Kaido, along with Akazaya Nine’s help.

Hence, it will bear the title “Raid! Oden and the Akazaya Nine!”

One Piece Episode 971 will finally reveal one of the most anticipated events in the manga story, his raid against Kaido.

Sadly, viewers already knew what would happen here. Oden and the Akazaya Nine would be captured.

Episode 970 recap

One Piece Episode 970 featured Roger and the rest of the gang finally reaching the last island of Laugh Tale.

Roger announced to his pirate crew that the Roger Pirates were already disbanded, per OtakuKart News.

Oden then returned to the Land of Wano and learned that Orochi had become the new Shogun. He also found out all the evil plans Orochi wanted to do.

He knew Orochi had sided with the Beast Pirates Captain Kaido. This made Oden incredibly mad that he wanted to attack Orochi immediately.

So he asked the Seven Scabbards to look after his family as he prepared to face Orochi. Kinemon was surprised to learn that Oden wanted to raid Orochi.

Oden, on the other hand, told Toki not to be afraid, though he realized Orochi’s men tried to kill Momonosuke and Hiyori.

Raizo advised Oden not to go to the Land of Wano and attack Orochi without crafting a plan. However, Oden suddenly jumped out of the window, saying he would leave Kuri in their hands.

He rushed to go to Orochi’s castle and vowed he would never let a fool handle the Land of Wano.

By the looks of it, the current anime arc was mainly focusing on The Open of the Great Pirate Era.

What would happen next could be seen when One Piece Episode 971 drops on Sunday, April 25, at 9:30 a.m.  Fans can see it on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Netflix.
