What to Expect in One Piece Episode 1071?
Given the current state of affairs in One Piece, it is highly probable that Luffy’s revival and return in episode 1071 will occur. Fans eagerly anticipate the episode’s opening, which is expected to focus on Luffy and his transformation.
This transformation is unique in that it significantly impacts his hair, unlike any previous changes he has undergone. The episode needs to explain what is happening to Luffy’s body, considering the significance of this transformation.
Additionally, viewers can anticipate that the fight between Luffy and Kaido will likely resume towards the end of the episode, setting the stage for a potential rematch in the following instalment.

One Piece Episode 1070 Recap
In One Piece episode 1070, the story unfolded with Luffy experiencing a sudden release of air from his body, causing him to be propelled off the Skull Dome Rooftop and onto a lower part of the island.
This resulted in him losing his ability to use the Voice of All Things, which concerned Momonosuke and the others. Meanwhile, Kaido punished Guernica for interfering in his battle with Luffy.
Subsequently, Kaido crashed through the Skull Dome Rooftop, announcing Luffy’s apparent demise and demanding Momonosuke’s surrender. Luffy’s defeat evoked reactions from Kid, Law, Tony Tony Chopper, Nami, and Otama.
However, Marcou encouraged them not to give up hope. Despite feeling exhausted, Kid and Law decided to continue fighting Kaido. Yamato and Momonosuke engaged in a debate over whether to persist in their fight or surrender.
Amidst this, Zunesha, the ancient elephant, called out to Momonosuke, and they heard the Drums of Liberation after 800 long years. As the episode concluded, Luffy’s body began convulsing and emitting smoke. Surprisingly, his appearance changed, and he started smiling, leading Zunesha to proclaim the return of Joy Boy.
