“One Piece” Chapter 979: Kaido’s Son Revealed

Following a series of speculations and rumors about Kaido’s son, it looks like “One Piece” Chapter 979 will finally reveal the name of the mysterious character. Previously, fans learned that Kaido’s son is named Yamato. But since the earlier set of scans removed the part that mentioned his name, some thought that it was fake.

Surprisingly, the new set of “One Piece” Chapter 979 scans confirms that particular detail revealed in the previous scans. The spoilers repeatedly mention the name of Kaido’s son and even quotes Tobi Roppo’s Black Maria addressing him as Young Master Yamato. Additionally, the new scans also share the reason why Kaido wants the Flying Six to be around when he summons his son.

“One Piece” Chapter 979: Kaido’s Big Announcement

Aside from seemingly confirming the name of Kaido’s son, the new set of “One Piece” Chapter 979 scans also shares some details about Yamato’s personality. The upcoming chapter would show Kaido’s meeting with the Flying Six. It also underlines that Kaido’s big announcement  is related to Yamato. It appears that even the powerful Tobi Roppo is having difficulty with Kaido’s son.

Black Maria notes that Yamato is difficult to deal with, while Ulti upon learning Kaido’s request to look for his son, finds the task troublesome. Who’s Who also doubts if they could bring Yamato in peacefully. However, Kaido’s offer for completing his task is hard to turn down—the chance to challenge for the title of All-Stars.

“One Piece” Chapter 979 will also show how the Straw Hats and Kidd crews infiltrated Kaido’s mansion. One of the leaked scans reveals Robin and Jinbe garbed in Beast Pirate’s clothing. Moreover, the upcoming chapter would also introduce a female headliner that makes Kaido’s schedule. The latest “One Piece” Chapter 979 scans underline the crucial role of Yamato in the battle at Onigashima as well as in the fate of the Straw Hats alliance.
