Fans have a lot to look forward to in the coming One Piece Chapter 879 of Eiichiro Oda's hit manga series. The coming installment is expected to feature one of the most highly anticipated fights in the Whole Cake Island arc, the match between two powerful fighters Luffy and Katakuri.

In the latest One Piece manga Chapter 878, which is already available on a number of online sites such as Mangastream, finally revealed the aftermath of Pedro's suicidal attack. Previously, he detonated the bombs he was carrying in close proximity to Perospero in the hope of killing Linlin's first-born son and reversing his spell on Brook and Chopper as well as turning the sea to normal for the Thousand Sunny's escape move.

Thankfully, it worked. Chopper and Brook no longer turned into candies and are back to their normal selves. Even the candied sea that gripped their ship Thousand Sunny became normal. Thus, they were finally able to activate its signature move, the Coup de Burst.

And it could not have been more well-timed. Just before the maneuver launched the ship into the air, all of Big Mom's ships have already trained their cannons on Thousand Sunny and getting ready to fire. Meanwhile, The Yonko herself seemed to have caught up with them and was clinging to the side of Thousand Sunny demanding that they give her the wedding cake.

Since Katakuri was not keen on allowing the Straw Hats escape, Luffy had to temporarily neutralize him by trapping him and Brulee in his Elephant Gun. Promising to his team that he will definitely return, Luffy dragged them both inside Brulee's Mirror World and destroyed the particular mirror that leads back to the ship. Thus, Katakuri and Luffy will have all the space they need to fight a proper battle in One Piece Chapter 879.

Sanji, Pudding, and Chiffon were not featured in the previous chapter yet. Thus, they could also reappear next installment hopefully carrying a finished cake so fans might not have to endure several panels of cake baking.

One Piece 879 will be released sometime next week. Meanwhile, enjoy some of the speculation from YouTuber Gear 5 below.
