Roger's earnest desire is to reach the last island on the Grand Line. In the new episode, he will continue his journey. However, fans of the anime will have to wait a little longer as "One Piece" Episode 966 is not broadcasting this Sunday.

Episode 966, which is titled "Roger’s Wish! A New Journey!," is now slated to air on March 21. The official preview trailer for the upcoming episode is out.

According to the preview, Roger wishes to continue his adventure and the key is the forbidden cultural heritage of Kozuki Oden and Ponegliffs. In the new episode, he is ready to set sail for a place where no one has gone before.

Meanwhile, the previous episode revolves mostly around Kurozumi Orochi's past story. The majority of the episode tells Orochi's backstory and how this timid young boy became a ruthless man.

His story starts with several men chasing him in the forest as he struggles to find a safe place. Later, he bumps into his distant relatives and one of them is Kurozumi Higurashi.

She tells Orochi how he is destined to become a Shogun in the future. Higurashi even shows him the way to become the next Shogun.

In the present timeline, Sukiyaki's condition is critical and the Daimyo of each region rushes to the Flower Capital.

Sukiyaki expresses his desire that Oden must succeed him as Shogun. Since Oden is on an adventure, he wants a proxy until Oden returns. He chooses Orochi to be the proxy Shogun.

Elsewhere, Oden is traveling with the Whitebeard Pirates and they encounter the Roger Pirates. Toward the end of the episode, a brutal battle ensues between Roger and Whitebeard.
