One Piece is now gearing up for the final saga of the long running action manga, and one awesome cosplay is truly tapping into how much has changed with Kaido over the years! When Kaido was first introduced to the series, he was an invincible being that somehow could not die despite his seeming desire to do so. We then got the fullest look at the Emperor of the Seas during the events of the Wano Country arc as Luffy and the others made their way to take down both he and Big Mom during the biggest war of the series to date.
Up to this point in the story, Kaido represented the biggest single threat to the seas overall as Luffy and the others discovered over their journeys through Zou, Punk Hazard, and even Dressrosa, the Emperor had his hands in a number of different major elements over the seas as a whole. Then it came down to facing off against Kaido himself as the series continued, and Luffy found he was just as fearsome as had been teased over the course of the New World arc to this point. Now artist @kappy_w on Instagram has brought the Emperor to life with some fearsome cosplay showing off the pirate's power:
One Piece's Wano Country arc was the longest in the entire series to date, and the events on Onigashima will likely shape the seas in some pretty huge ways moving forward. Original series creator Eiichiro Oda is now in the midst of a hiatus for the Summer while he prepares to kick off the final saga of the series overall, and the last time we had seen the manga in action it was teased that the worlds outside Wano have gotten even wilder since Luffy and the others last had seen any of it in action. At the same time, there's still a lot that Wano needs to work out as well.
As for the anime release, the latest episodes of the series have been working its way through the fights on Onigashima as Luffy and the others are finding out how much of a threat Kaido and Big Mom really are on the roof of the Skull Dome. At the same time, it's still far from where the manga is at currently and thus a ton to keep an eye out for moving forward. How did you like Luffy's fight with Kaido overall? How are you liking seeing it in the anime so far? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments!0comments
