One Piece Chapter 1085, titled “The Death of Nefertari Cobra,” by Eiichiro Oda, translated by Stephen Paul and available in English from Viz Media, has finally arrived after a two-week break. And it is safe to say that this chapter has exceeded all expectations, delivering one of the most thrilling and shocking moments of the year. The wait was undoubtedly worth it, as Oda masterfully crafted a chapter that left fans in awe.
As anticipated, Chapter 1085 delves deep into the events of the Reverie, covering the aftermath of the previous chapter and introducing a pivotal turning point that will undoubtedly reshape the world of One Piece forever. Brace yourselves, for this chapter is nothing short of mind-blowing.
Imu, the enigmatic sovereign of the world, made a striking appearance in the final pages of the previous chapter. Walking into the room where King Cobra had an audience with the Five Elders, Imu’s entrance sent shivers down the readers’ spines. Cobra, aware of the significance of Imu’s presence, had raised questions about the mysterious death of Queen Lily and the true meaning behind the “D” initial. Imu’s arrival atop the Empty Throne marked a profound moment in the story.
Chapter 1085 picks up right where the previous one left off, with Imu continuing the conversation with Cobra. While the specifics of Queen Lily’s demise remain unanswered, Imu sheds some light on the larger picture. According to Imu, those with the “D” initial are not only their enemies but also the architects of the World Government itself. However, the current bearers of the initial are mere empty shells, unaware of the true meaning behind their own names.
Imu goes on to reveal a shocking truth: Queen Lily, as confirmed in this chapter, was a member of the “D” family. In an astonishing twist, it is also revealed that she played a crucial role in spreading the Poneglyphs throughout the world. Imu refers to this act as a mistake, but it becomes evident that Queen Lily’s actions were intentional. She left behind a letter urging the people of the world to protect the Poneglyphs, a symbol of liberation that will one day lead to a brighter future.
The death of King Cobra takes center stage in Chapter 1085. With Imu’s arrival, Cobra’s fate was sealed, and he realized that his end was imminent. Desperate to escape, Cobra pleaded with the Five Elders for a chance to survive, but their response was resolute: his fate was sealed. Before meeting his demise, Imu imparted some secrets to Cobra. And just like that, a tail-shaped arrow pierced Cobra’s gut, delivering a fatal blow. The true nature of this arrow, whether a mere projectile or a manifestation of an ancient creature, remains to be fully revealed.
At this critical juncture, Sabo, the revolutionary army’s chief of staff, intervenes, springing into action against the highest authorities of the World Government. Surprisingly, none in the room noticed Sabo’s presence, a testament to his mastery of hiding his aura, a skill known in the world of One Piece. Despite his valiant efforts to save Cobra, it becomes clear that Sabo is outmatched by the combined might of the Five Elders and Imu.
In a stunning turn of events, the Gorosei and Imu reveal their devil fruit powers, but their transformations are left tantalizingly shrouded in silhouette. Allusions are made to Zoan-type devil fruits, possibly of the mythical variety, and hints of Hito Hito no Mi powers are also implied. As the battle ensues, Sabo realizes that he cannot take on this formidable group single-handedly. With his life in danger, Cobra sacrifices himself to buy Sabo time, urging him to deliver a crucial message to Luffy and Vivi—the message that they are the bearers of the “D” initial and the torchbearers of a brighter future.
Meanwhile, amidst the chaos, Wapol, a character known for his less-than-admirable traits, bears witness to these world-shaking events. Despite his disdain for Cobra, the revelation of the true identities of those at the pinnacle of power elicits a twinge of empathy within Wapol. Sensing the danger, he makes a desperate attempt to escape the cursed place, with Vivi clinging onto him for dear life.
As the tension rises, it is revealed that Vivi has been captured by Cipher Pol, indicating that Cobra’s death and Vivi’s abduction were meticulously planned. The World Government and Nobles have sinister intentions for Vivi, possibly intending to make her a slave. In this dire situation, Wapol emerges as an unexpected ally, racing through the castle walls in a bid to secure their survival.
While the chapter leaves readers on the edge of their seats, wondering about the fate of Vivi and the grander implications of these revelations, it also raises questions about Big News Morgans, a renowned journalist in the world of One Piece. Morgans, who witnessed these earth-shattering events, has yet to spread this critical information about Imu to the world. His motives and plans remain shrouded in mystery, leaving fans eager to discover his next move and the role he will play in shaping the narrative.
Chapter 1085 of One Piece is an absolute masterpiece, showcasing Oda’s unparalleled storytelling prowess. With each page, readers are left breathless, craving more of the captivating tale that continues to unfold. The events of this chapter have undoubtedly set the stage for a monumental shift in the story, promising an exhilarating journey ahead.
As the reverberations of Chapter 1085 echo throughout the fandom, fans eagerly anticipate the next installment, yearning to unravel the mysteries that lie within the vast world of One Piece. The journey continues, and with every new chapter, Oda solidifies his place as a true maestro of the art form, captivating hearts and minds with his extraordinary storytelling.
