One Piece 1081 is here, and we’re ready to talk about it on Rookie Pirate Radio, a podcast dedicated to the world of anime and manga. This week, Jon Negroni (me) and Travis Hymas discuss the latest chapter of the One Piece manga, titled “Tenth Ship Captain of the Blackbeard Pirates, Kuzan.” We chat about One Piece 1081 in our usual overload of detail and speculation, particularly when it comes to the age-old question, what is Kuzan’s deal? We also discuss the color of the supreme color spread, that Hibari/Akainu theory, and OK seriously what are the Blackbeard pirates going to do in Egghead?! Tune in to hear our thoughts on all these questions and more!

One Piece 1081 is currently available to read for free on Viz.

We want your feedback! If you have any questions, corrections, or your own theories and speculation, please leave us a comment below. You can also email us ( or join our Discord and message us in the One Piece Spoilers Chat server. We’ll be back to discuss One Piece 1082 after it comes out, but in the meantime, be sure to subscribe to Rookie Pirate Radio on your favorite podcast app, so you can stay up to date on all our releases.
