One Piece Episode 1040 Spoilers
The Jinbe against Who’s-Who fight is one of the most likely opening scenes for One Piece Episode 1040. The latter appears to personalize matters by discussing his relationship with Monkey D. Jinbe, who has recently joined the crew, and has the ideal opportunity to defend his captain by attacking Luffy using the Gum-Gum Fruit. Due to the consequences of Otama’s Devil Fruit, viewers will probably continue to witness the many Gifters in Onigashima betraying the Pirates of the Animal Kingdom.
This is expected to continue until the rebel coalition troops are on equal footing with the Animal Kingdom Pirates, having radically changed the course of the fight with the first wave of traitors. Additionally, the fight between Yamato and Kaido, which began at the conclusion of Episode 1038, was left hanging in the previous episode. Although uncertain, fans can probably anticipate.
Finally, One Piece Episode 1040 is unlikely to provide significant updates on Luffy’s condition. Eiichiro Oda, the creator of the series and illustrator, is now away from Onigashima, so it is obvious that he is attempting to spend more time finishing up the many other bouts. Fans should anticipate Luffy to be playing a supporting role in current issues until the majority of them have been properly settled.
