The One Piece anime returned after a two-week break yesterday, and once again, the anime blew us away with its quality. So far, we’ve enjoyed the anime much more than we’ve enjoyed the manga, and we hope that continues to be the case every week.
Who is Kozuki Momonosuke ?
Kozuki Momonosuke is an inhabitant of Wano Country and the son of the late daimyo of the Kuri region and patriarch of the Kozuki Family, Kozuki Oden. He was born 28 years before the present day, but traveled 20 years forward in time when he was 8 years old.
Who is Kin’emon ?
“Foxfire Kin’emon” is a samurai from Wano Country, a retainer of the Kozuki Family, the leader of the Nine Red Scabbards, the husband of Tsuru, and a former thug. He posed as Momonosuke’s father during the journey to Zou. He was born 56 years before the present day, but traveled 20 years forward in time when he was 36 years old. He is one of the central allies of the Straw Hat Pirates during the Dressrosa and Yonko Sagas.
One Piece’s Wano Country – The Recent Events
The last episode was possibly one of the best-directed episodes in the Wano Country arc so far, and even though it didn’t adopt a lot of content, it did expand a lot on what we got in the manga and made it seem natural, which is what a good episode should do. As one of the most important events in the Wano Country arc so far, this particular episode needed to be perfect, and it was just that!
In the previous episode, Luffy and the others traveled to the ruins of the Oden Castle, where an important revelation was made. Although Zoro and the others had heard it already, Luffy and his crew hadn’t, and Kin’emon let them in on a huge secret as well.
One Piece – The Secret of the Time Travel
According to the events that unfolded, Kin’emon and his group were revealed to have been from the Wano Country of the past. As mentioned by Kin’emon himself, he, along with Kanjuro, Raizo, Kiku, and Momonosuke, have traveled 20 years ahead in time to the current Wano Country.
This was done thanks to the powers of Kozuki Toki, the wife of Kozuki Oden. It was 20 years ago when Kaido and his forces joined hands with Orochi and attacked Wano, destroying everything in the process. As these events transpired, Toki saw it fit to send them 20 years ahead in the future using her Devil Fruit powers.
Since she had a Devil Fruit related to time, she likely also had the power to see when and where events happened. After seeing Orochi’s end in the current year’s Fire Festival, Kozuki Toki announced it publicly as a prophecy, whilst she sent the people into the future, choosing to stay back herself.
This revelation will surely be key to a lot of important events to come in the future of One Piece. Hopefully, they’ll all tie together and any questions that are arising in our minds right now will also be answered.
So Momonosuke, Kinemon, Kanjuro and Raizo are all “Yūrei” (ghosts in japanese folklore) created from Oden’s devil fruit. They have to resolve their emotional conflict, which is to take down the Shogun and open up the borders of Wano kingdom to move on to the afterlife, except from Momonosuke who wants to kill Kaido. Since Kaido is thought to be “immortal”, Momonosuke won’t be able to move on to the afterlife and will stay in the physical world.
