The world of ONE PIECE currently has many characters who could destroy entire islands with just a few attacks. And these men were also present in the past, as we are gradually discovering with Oden Kozuki's flashback. Told of his faithful samurai, the nine red scabbards, continues the story of the past of one of the strongest swordsmen.
The episode 963 of ONE PIECE published on Crunchyroll makes Oden Kozuki the protagonist again, but this time the samurai is accompanied by a different character. After the mention of the pirate rocks, ONE PIECE anime features Edward Newgate, known as Whitebeard, in his youthful version. And what would happen was already hinted at last week in the ONE PIECE 963 preview.
The pirate ends up in Wanokuni, where he is attacked by Oden. The two will enliven an extraordinary meeting at which they initially appear to be equals: Oden uses his katanas Enma and Ame no Habakiri, while Whitebeard shows off his brave Naginata Murakumogiri. The video below is an excerpt from ONE PIECE episode 963 that shows us this Battle between Oden and Whitebeard.
But in the end Whitebeard will also unleash the Gura Gurahits Oden in the face and he is thrown away. With Whitebeard a new life seems to start for Oden.
