The latest episode of “One Piece” revealed that the World Government yielded to Admiral Fujitora’s request of abolishing the Shichibukai System, which tilted the balance of power in the world.

There are three major powers in “One Piece” that are crucial in maintaining peace. These are the World Government, the Shichibukai or the Seven Warlords, and the Emperors of the Sea. The Shichibukai is a group of seven powerful pirates allied with the World Government and deemed as one of the great powers that kept the world in balance.

Based on the latest “One Piece” episode, the council of rulers on the recently concluded Levely voted to scrap the system. Even before Morgans published the story, the Marines were already dispatched to catch the five remaining Warlords of the Sea. The World Government immediately had the bounties of the Shichibukai defrosted and made them enemies once again.

One Piece Stampede The world’s largest festival of the pirates, by the pirates, for the pirates.

The latest episode of “One Piece” showed that the Marines are already at the locations of Boa Hancock, Dracule Mihawk, Edward Weevil, and Buggy, preparing to catch them. These powerful pirates, except for Buggy, are obviously unfazed by the turn of events. And judging from the way they acted, it seems that they are willing to give the Marines a run for their money.

The news did not reach the Straw Hats since the Land of Wano is a closed country and cut off from the rest of the world. Among those in Wano, only XDrake knows that the Shichibukai has been abolished and he learned the news from Coby. But, at this point, it will not yet affect the situation in Wano.

Even before the World Government dissolved the Shichibukai system, Luffy already destroyed it. The Straw Hats captain revealed to the world the filth of Crocodile and Doflaminggo, who were both sent to Impel Down. Luffy befriended Boa Hancock, who later fell in love with him. He allied with Trafalgar Law and even has a nakama who was once a Shichibukai-Jinbei.

The upcoming episodes of “One Piece” are going to be explosive as the war in the Land of Wano builds up. “One Piece” episode 958 is another installment that fans should not miss since it will feature Garp and the Pirate King himself, Gold D. Roger.

“One Piece” 957 is now available on Crunchyroll and Funimation.
