One Piece Episode 1018 plot
The plot of One Piece Episode 1018 is not known at this moment. Since Episode 1017 has still not aired at the time of writing this article, we are going to bring you a short recap of Episode 1016 so you know what you can expect:
While Zoro, Kidd and Killer point out the Ambition level of Luffy’s armor, Big Mom is annoyed by his arrogance, and Kaido wonders how he managed to hurt him despite the outcome of their fight a few weeks earlier. He then attacks the boy, who is unable to avoid him despite having foreseen it. Big Mom attempts to do the same using Prometheus, who is cut in half by Zoro.
When Kaido prepares to deliver a second blow, Law teleports Luffy in front of him to complain to him that she treated him like a subordinate, as she ordered him to do what she would do anyway. Kidd joins the squabble and when Prometheus shoots fireballs at them, the three challenge each other not to react, getting hit.
At that point, Kaido asks Big Mom to stand back to see how strong their enemies are, while Zoro dons his own bandana and reveals to Killer that he recognized him as Kamazo because of his laugh. The two swordsmen, similarly rivaling their captains, strike the emperor, who is not affected.

Crunchyroll offers the series regularly through simulcast, but you’ll have to watch it in Japanese, with English subtitles.
