One week has passed since ONE PIECE 1019 was published on MangaPlus. Still full of emotion, another phase of the Battle of Onigashima closes, but it will be a few days before the official wait for the next one. However, the first spoilers of the next issue have already surfaced online.

ONE PIECE 1020 won't appear on Weekly Shonen Jump and MangaPlus until August, but the Korean leakers have managed to get their hands on some information. We therefore saw in the spoilers of ONE PIECE 1020 what the chapter will focus on, or the clash between Nico Robin and Black Maria. There is one sentence in particular that needs to be analyzed, namely that of Nico Robin calls Sanji "Luffy's wing".

This expression has already been used by Eiichiro Oda in the past and was better explained in an SBS. The author said that Luffy has two irreplaceable companions and they will be the ones who will primarily help him make him the new king of the pirates. THE two characters in question are Roronoa Zoro and Sanji Vinsmoke, officially called "The Pirate King's Wings"., and now with Nico Robin's sentence, all of this thought effectively becomes canon in the manga as well.

Another confirmation of how important Sanji is to the crew and that he's playing a much more prominent role than Jinbe, at least for now.
