one piece 1089

One Piece 1089 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 “Hostage Situation.” In which we discover that Oda has been holding our expectations hostage.

We chat about One Piece 1089 in our usual overload of detail, speculation, and free-wheeling analysis. Plus we end the show with a discussion of the Gear 5th reveal in the anime (episode 1071). How did the anime event of the year(?) go over with the broader community? Time to discuss!

One Piece 1089 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 (invites aren’t open at the moment but will be again soon!) We’ll be back to discuss One Piece 1090 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.
