Release date and time, where to watch
One Piece Episode 1054 will air on local Japanese channels at 9:30 AM JST on Sunday, March 19, 2023. For a minority of international fans, this translates to a Saturday night local broadcast window. However, most international fans, like Japanese viewers, will see the episode become available locally on Sunday mornings.
International viewers can stream the episode on Crunchyroll approximately 90 minutes after the episode begins airing in Japan. Funimation continues to release new episodes of the series for its subscribers every week. However, the streaming time is much longer than that of Crunchyroll. Crunchyroll is therefore the best option to watch the upcoming episode.
One Piece Episode 1054 will be available on Crunchyroll at the following times in the corresponding time zones:
Pacific Standard Time: 6:00 p.m., Saturday, March 18 Eastern Standard Time: 9:00 p.m., Saturday, March 18 Greenwich Mean Time: 2:00 a.m., Sunday, March 19 Central European Time: 3:00 a.m., Sunday, March 19 Indian Standard Time: 7:30 a.m., Sunday, March 19 MarchPhilippine Standard Time: 10:00 a.m., Sunday, March 19Japanese Standard Time: 11:00 a.m., Sunday, March 19Australia Central Standard Time: 11:30 a.m., Sunday, March 19
Recap of episode 1053
In the previous episode, Momonosuke was asked to create flame clouds by order of Yamato, who left to deal with Onigashima’s explosives. Before leaving, Yamato shared some touching words of trust with Momonosuke, which seemed to inspire him.
Fans then saw CP0 contact Rob Lucci. The conversation revealed that preparations for Kaido’s loss were already in place and on their way to Wano. Fans also learned that CP0’s new goal is to get Nico Robin into the World Government, regardless of who wins or loses the fight in Onigashima.
The episode ended with a clash between Sanji and Queen. Fans saw Sanji take a suspicious amount of damage without being particularly hurt or affected. This created a sense of fear in Sanji, who feared that the Bloodline Factor manipulations that had failed within him would eventually be activated, risking turning him into an emotionless soldier like his siblings.
What to expect
As mentioned above, One Piece Episode 1054 seems to focus on the clash between Killer and Hawkins, while giving Kid some context, given his role in the fight as Hawkins’ human shield. A promise between Killer and Kid is hinted at in the preview, suggesting that a thumbnail flashback showing the promise the two made will be a focal point of the episode.
If the episode covers anything other than the fight between Killer and Hawkins, the most likely fight fans will see will be Sanji vs. Queen. The anime ended on Sanji’s fear of becoming an inhuman soldier like his siblings, so it would make sense to partially revisit that plotline. Similarly, a brief Zoro vs. King or Luffy vs. Kaido update is also possible.
Yamato’s efforts to manipulate Onigashima’s explosives are most likely to be shown at the end of One Piece Episode 1054. Given the emphasis on the danger of an Onigashima explosion, this will no doubt be a focal point for the next installment and those that follow.
