One Piece Episode 1092 Review

One Piece Episode 1092 Review

New Island, New Outfits

Right at the start of One Piece Episode 1092, we get some exposition about the Vegapunks. As expected, there are six of them. But, what I didn’t expect is that they aren’t the same as Judge Vinsmoke’s children.

The Vegapunks (officially called Satellites) are different aspects of the Dr. Vegapunk. Because he’s so busy, he split his personality up into different bodies. Shaka is the good one, Lilith is the evil one, Edison is the thinker, Pythagoras is the wise one, Atlas is the violent one, and York is the greedy one.

For now, it’s still unclear if the original Dr. Vegapunk still exists. In the OP, we only see him as a hologram. So, it’s possible that his original body no longer exists. It might just be the six Vegapunks now. Or, he could exist without those personalities within him.

Enough about the Vegapunks, though. The more important thing we got from this episode is some new outfits. Luffy, Chopper, Jinbe, and Bonney all got their Egghead Island outfits. I know Bonney isn’t a member of the Straw Hats, but I’m glad she got a new outfit too.

Seeing Bonney in her Egghead outfit was a nice teaser for when we eventually get Nami and Robin in theirs. I know we’ve already seen their Egghead outfits in the OP and mid-roll. However, I can’t wait for the official reveal. I hope we don’t have to wait too much longer.

Anyway, there are two kinds of outfits to choose from. There’s the SSG (Special Science Group) futuristic outfit. And there’s a tropical outfit with a Hawaiian shirt. Jinbe goes with the tropical outfit while Luffy, Chopper, and Bonney go with SSG outfits. They all come with SSG boots, though.

Bonney’s Lamentation

I thought Bonney said that Kuma was her father in Episode 1091. But, I guess all she told Luffy, Chopper, and Jinbe was that Dr. Vegapunk turned her father into a cyborg. She didn’t tell them she was talking about Kuma until Episode 1092.

Well, now they know. And, that could make things a bit more complicated. If Bonney won’t let the Straw Hats fight the Pacifistas, things could get tricky. But, maybe they’ll be able to convince her that the Pacifistas aren’t Kuma. They’re based on Kuma, but there’s still only one original that’s Kuma.

Do we know if the Pacifista currently with the Revolutionary Army is the original Kuma? I think it is. But, I don’t remember if we know that for sure. If it is, do you think Bonney knows where he is? Or, does she not know which one is the real Kuma?

I suppose we’ll find that all out in this arc. And, hopefully, we’ll get more information about how Kuma and Bonney are related. He definitely raised her based on the flashback we saw in this episode. But, I’m still not convinced that they’re related by blood.

Also, speaking of Kuma, we saw a new Seraphim based on him with CP0. That should make things even more interesting with Bonney. The Seraphim version of Kuma is pretty different than the original Kuma. So, how’s she going to view that one? Is she still going to think of it like Kuma?

Oh, and I almost forgot, didn’t Kuma volunteer to be the model for the Pacifistas? I seem to remember that being the case. Was that World Government propaganda or was it true? And how do you think that will change how Bonney views the Pacifistas?

Blackbeard Vs. Heart Pirates

Toward the end of the episode, we caught up with the Heart Pirates and saw them run into the Blackbeard Pirates. If you were paying attention to the OP, you’ll have known this was going to happen at some point.

In the OP, we see Luffy fight Lucci, Law fight Blackbeard, Kid fight Shanks, and Garp fight Aokiji. Also, Zoro fights what appears to be one of the Seraphim. Considering this is Zoro we’re talking about, I assume that’s the Seraphim based on Mihawk.

So, we have those fights to look forward to in this arc. And the first seems like it’s going to be Law vs. Blackbeard. And, if I’m being honest, I don’t see how Law’s going to win this. Yes, Law’s strong. But, is he Blackbeard strong? Also, his crew is a bunch of weaklings compared to Blackbeard’s crew.

From my understanding, none of Law’s crewmates have devil fruit powers or even the ability to use Haki. They’re just normal pirates. Law is the reason why they’re a strong crew. The rest of them are there more for comedy than anything else. So, they’re not going to be helpful in this fight.

Does that mean this is going to be the end of Law? I wouldn’t actually mind that. I don’t feel like Oda would kill off Law here. But, there’s also not much reason to keep him alive, either. His story ended with the defeat of Kaido.

My prediction is that Law won’t die here, though. Sure, it would reinforce Blackbeard as a major threat. But, that’s not necessary. Instead, I think Blackbeard is going to capture Law and try to get him to perform the immortality surgery on him. Remember, that’s a special thing Law’s devil fruit can do.

Final Thoughts

What do you think of One Piece Episode 1092? Of the four new outfits for Egghead Island we’ve seen so far, which is your favorite? How do you think Bonney will react to the Kuma Seraphim? And, do you think Law will survive his encounter with Blackbeard?
