One Piece 1088 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 “Final Lesson.” And one lesson we’ll keep learning over and over again is to never assume our predictions are correct…

We chat about One Piece 1088 in our usual overload of detail, speculation, and free analysis. And definitely stick around for our anime check-in at 00:57:20 to hear about the latest stuff we’ve been watching, both new and old. From yet another random trash rom-com that Jon wants to rant about to what Travis proudly dubs commie propaganda, we have plenty to discuss this week.

One Piece 1088 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 1089 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.
