One piece Episode 1054 preview suggests a Kid- and Killer-centric episode and teases the conclusion of Killer vs. Hawkins
Date and time of publication where to see
One piece Episode 1054 is scheduled to air Sunday, March 19, 2023 at 9:30am JST on local Japanese channels. For a minority of international fans, that means a Saturday night local release window. However, most international fans, as well as Japanese viewers, will see the episode become available locally on Sunday morning.
International audiences will be able to stream the episode on Crunchyroll approximately 90 minutes after it begins airing in Japan. Funimation still streams the new episodes of the series weekly for its subscribers. However, their lag time is much longer than Crunchyroll’s. This makes Crunchyroll the better overall option for watching the upcoming episode.
One piece Episode 1054 is expected to be available on Crunchyroll in the appropriate time zones at the following times:
- 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 19 March
- Central European Time: 3:00 a.m. Sunday 19 March
- Indian Standard Time: 7:30 am Sunday 19 March
- Philippine Standard Time: 10:00 a.m. Sunday, March 19
- Japan Standard Time: 11:00 a.m. Sunday, March 19
- Australia Central Standard Time: 11:30 am Sunday 19 March
Flashback to episode 1053
The previous episode began with Momonosuke being told to create clouds of flame at Yamato’s behest as she set off to deal with Onigashima’s explosives. Before leaving, Yamato shared with Momonosuke some touching words of confidence that really seemed to inspire him.
Fans then saw CP0 contact Rob Lucci. The conversation revealed that preparations for Kaido’s loss were already made and on their way to Wano. Fans also learned that CP0’s latest goal was to bring Nico Robin into the world government, regardless of who exactly wins or loses the fight in Onigashima.
The episode ended with a focus on Sanji versus Queen. Fans saw Sanji sustain suspicious damage without being particularly hurt or concerned. This created a sense of dread in Sanji, who feared that the lineage factor manipulations that had gone awry in him would finally activate and risked him turning into an emotionless soldier like his siblings.
What to expect (speculative)
As mentioned above, One piece Episode 1054 appears to focus on Killer versus Hawkins while also giving context to Kid given his role in combat as Hawkins’ human shield. A promise between Killer and Kid is teased in the preview, suggesting that a miniature flashback showing the promise between the two will be a focus of the episode.
If the episode covers anything other than the Killer vs. Hawkins fight, the most likely fight fans will see is Sanji vs. Queen. The anime stopped building Sanji’s fear of becoming an Inhuman soldier like his siblings, so it would make sense to partially revisit that storyline when she returns. A short update on Zoro vs. King or Luffy vs. Kaido is also possible.
Something more likely to be shown at the end One piece Episode 1054 is about Yamato’s efforts to deal with Onigashima’s explosives. Given the emphasis on the danger posed by an Onigashima explosion, this will no doubt be a constant focus for the upcoming episode and beyond.
