What Happened in One Piece episode 1078?
In the previous episode, One Piece portrayed the immediate aftermath of Luffy's battle with Kaido. Wano has been freed from their oppression, and the Akazaya Nine begin to reveal themselves to the civilians. Momnosuke exits his dragon form and walks through the smoke to unveil himself as the new ruler of Wano. He is now in his adult form and communicates to the people that they are free and the years of forced labor have come to an end
In Onigashima, the fight has nearly come to an end as Yamato rushes in to inform the warriors that Kaido has been defeated. Yamato introduces herself to the Straw Hat crew and announces her desire to join the team. Jimbei declares that he will wait for Luffy's approval to recognize Yamato as their new member.
The show then shifts towards Otama and her past. Otama explains that her powers will wear off after a month for the animals and she asks Horselina to look after her as she sees her as a maternal figure. In a flashback, Otama loses her parents and holds out hope for the return of the Kozuki clan to save the land. She makes and attempts to sell hats as she lives by herself until she comes across Hitestsu. She also remembers Luffy's promise to her as she witnesses Momonosuke announcing the return of the Kozuki.
