• "One Piece" 1035 is reportedly titled "Zoro vs King"
  • The upcoming chapter will release on Sunday
  • "One Piece" 1036 will be the first chapter to drop in 2022

"One Piece" 1035, being the last chapter to be released this year, is definitely living up to the hype, especially for fans of the Straw Hats' swordsman. According to the latest set of spoilers, the upcoming manga installment centers on the explosive fight between Roronoa Zoro and King the Wildfire.

The latest set of spoilers is courtesy of the reliable insider who goes by the name Redon and other insiders in the community. "One Piece" 1035 is reportedly titled "Zoro vs King" and will roll out Sunday.

Given the length of their battle, Zoro, according to the latest spoilers, now realizes some of his opponents' weaknesses. It turns out that Kaido's strongest Calamity moves a lot faster when the flame disappears from his back.

And while King gains speed, the disappearance of the flame on his back nerfs his defenses. Aside from this, fans will finally see the actual face of the warrior who, many believe, came from the ancient but powerful race of Lunaria.

Based on the spoilers, King the Wildfire sports gray hair and brown skin. The World Government also set a high bounty for this race, rewarding whoever has the information about them with a whopping 100 million Berries.

"One Piece" 1035 will also showcase some sort of flashback about King, which will reportedly allow fans to learn more about the Calamity during the moment he met the Emperor of the Sea Kaido in a government research facility.

The insider is not yet certain about King's real name since according to them the romanization is not that clear at the moment. After the flashback, the manga will focus on the fight between Zoro and King.

Kaido's right-hand, King, will use an attack called "Omori Karyudon" while Zoro in retaliation will launch a new attack called "Dragon King of the Three Flames." The chapter will reportedly end with Zoro attacking King.

The latest spoilers also revealed that based on the events in the previous chapter, Sanji has already defeated one of Kaido's Calamities, Queen the Plague. It may be recalled that Queen stole the strengths of Sanji's siblings and used them against the Straw Hats' cook.

However, this apparently did not work with Sanji, who proved to Queen that he is powerful even without the aid of Germa's scientific innovation. It remains to be seen if Sanji has ultimately defeated Queen or if fans will see another round of their battle in the succeeding chapters.

Whatever the case, the stakes are a lot higher now and the Straw Hats could not afford to lose in any of their fights if they want to reach Raftel and acquire the "One Piece." Meanwhile, there will be no new chapter releasing for the rest of December because of the holidays.

"One Piece" 1036 will most likely release sometime in January 2022 but there are rumors that insiders might share an early set of spoilers for the said chapter sometime this week.
