One Piece Chapter 1081 is titled “10th Ship Captain: Kuzan”. Color Spread in the cover. We can see Straw Hat crew sleeping with bubbles floating above them.
One Piece Chapter 1081 Summary
Chapter starts where last one ended. Kuzan appears and frozes Hibari, Koby runs to help her. Then Kuzan goes to face Garp (the other Blackbeard Pirates are not with him).
Kuzan: Will you be able to kill your former “No.1 apprentice” to save your current one!? I like how you always have done whatever you liked… Now I’m doing the same, that’s why I’m following Teach!
Garp: I thought I taught you to live in the present!
Kuzan’s Flashback Begins
A flashback about Teach and Kuzan starts, it took place in a certain island 1 year after Kuzan Vs. Akainu battle in Punk Hazard.
Part of the Blackbeard Pirates arrive to the island and they see some of their nakamas frozen (San Juan Wolf, Vasco Shot and Doc Q). Blackbeard Pirates enter in a bar and see Kuzan, then they drink and get along.
Lafitte whispers Teach to kill Kuzan and take his power for the crew. Kuzan hears it and gets angry, ready to fight against them. But Teach apologizes for Lafitte’s words and offers Kuzan to join him instead.
Teach asks Kuzan about “the man with the burn scar” because it seems that man has the remaining Road Poneglyph. It is said that “the man with the burn scar” rides on a black ship and he can create whirlpools to sink his enemies in the sea (we can see the silhouette of a ship while both talk about him).
Shiryu: Maybe that “man with the burn scar” works for World Government. It won’t be a surprise if World Government keeps one Road Poneglyph with them to prevent pirates can reach One Piece.
Kuzan denies knowing anything about that man.
Kuzan: Umm… Maybe I’m that man! Seriously, my only memories about Poneglyph are at Ohara. If I’d have seen a red stone there, I’d have remembered it…
Kuzan’s Flashback Ends
Garp Vs. Kuzan continues. Kuzan uses his attack “Ice Ball” on Garp (like he did with Whitebeard in Marineford). But Garp breaks the ice easily. Then Garp grabs Kuzan’s head and uses a new attack.
Garp: Those who hesitate are weak! “Blue Hole” (7)L——JL (ŒT – Kanji mean “Fall to Seafloor”)!
Garp smashes Kuzan’s body and splits the ground with his fist. Kuzan’s entire body fall into the ground.
Cut to Winner Island
Law has been defeated. Teach is panting with blood on his face, he’s deciding what he should do now.
Teach: “Zehahaha! What should I do with his power! Should I use it or… Maybe should I sell his power!?”
Bepo sees what is happening with his captain. Bepo then takes a special medicine that Chopper gave him. This medicine lets Bepo turn to Sulong form. Bepo looks badass in Sulong form, he’s like a huge polar bear. We can see Bepo Sulong in one full page panel.
Bepo attacks Teach before he can steal Law’s power. Then Bepo takes Law into the sea. In a huge spread, we can see that “Polar Tang” has been destroyed and the rest of the Heart Pirates are in the sea or lying on the ground…
Narrator: “At Winner Island in the New World… The pirate Trafalgar Law and his Heart Pirates have been defeated!”
