The previous One Piece chapter was full of flashbacks, and we also saw Luffy covering the sky of the capital with his fist. Now, every fan is looking forward to the release of Chapter 1048. Well, the next One Piece is delayed, and here’s everything you need to know about its new release date.
Luffy and Kaido’s fight has just started in the One Piece anime series, but the battle is already far ahead in Eiichiro Oda’s manga series. Luffy is now powerful enough to show the Emperor of the sea, Kaido, why he will be the next King of Pirates. Of course, Kaido won’t be defeated this early, but it’s hard to deny that Luffy has surprised him with Gear 5. So, it would be interesting to see how Kaido will respond to Luffy’s attacks in the upcoming chapters.

One Piece Chapter 1048 Spoilers aren’t out yet
Early spoilers for a One Piece chapter arrives 4-5 days before its physical release in Japan. But since the magazine is on a break because of the Golden Week, no spoilers for chapter 1048 have come out. You’ll hopefully get some leaks about the next chapter around May 3rd, 2022. So, we have to wait for a few more days to get a glimpse of the upcoming events.
What Should We Expect from One Piece Chapter 1048?
The previous manga chapter ended with Luffy creating a fist that is similar to the size of the island. It’s clear that Luffy is done playing around, and he is ready to end things once and for all. He is all set to crush Kaido with his fist, but there’s only one problem. Apparently, Luffy plans to punch Kaido right through the island, meaning, his attack could very well destroy Onigashima. However, before launching the attack, Luffy asks Momo to move the island. Of course, Momo isn’t sure that he could do it, but Luffy believes in him.
So, one of two things might happen. Momo will come to the rescue by moving the island away from Luffy’s attack, and the Straw Hat pirate captain will land a powerful blow on Kaido. Either that or Momo will fail the task, and if that happens, Luffy will have to stop or slow down his attack to protect the island. In the second scenario, Kaido will probably get some time to recover, and he’ll be able to contain Luffy’s attack.
