Recap: What Happened in One Piece Episode 1052?
The fight between Luffy and Kaido goes on. Momonosuke is able to fly and make Flame Clouds with the help of Yamato. As they are flying, rocks start to fall in their path. Yamato sees that the island’s bottom is falling apart because the Flame Clouds around it are unstable. Then, Yamato figures out that Kaido’s power must be going down.
Momonosuke tries to stop the island from moving by pushing it. Yamato, on the other hand, tells him to make Flame Clouds that are stronger than Kaido’s. He also tells Momonosuke that at the bottom of the island is a room full of weapons that would go off if the island falls. The two decide to take care of the problem on their own.
The fights between King and Zoro and between Queen and Sanji are still going on on the Performance Floor. Queen hits Sanji pretty hard, and Sanji thinks he broke some bones. However, he feels fine. On the other hand, Zoro is able to cut off one of the spikes on King’s mask.
It looks like Sanji has taken another hit. Queen tells Sanji to put on the raid suit, but Sanji says no. He says he feels like something is wrong with him. After King attacks, Zoro almost falls off Onigashima. The mask on King is slowly coming apart.
Spoiler: What Will Happen in One Piece Episode 1053?
Episode 1053 of One Piece will most likely focus on Sanji versus Queen, judging from the trailer. Given that something appears to be amiss with Sanji’s body, the episode will likely focus on the cook’s inner thoughts and emotions as he is attacked by Queen.
Between these scenarios, it is likely that fans will receive updates on Zoro vs King. Due to the fact that Zoro and Sanji’s battles on Onigashima are arguably the two most significant outside Luffy vs. Kaido, they need continuous focus in the upcoming episodes. Fans may rest assured that Toei Animation will continue to do so in One Piece episodes 1053 and beyond.

Crunchyroll is the best place to watch One Piece because it shows the newest episodes at the same time around the world, even in places other than Japan. But because of licensing issues, Crunchyroll might not be available in your area, so you might need a VPN.
