"One Piece" chapter 1005 is arriving this week and there are plenty of reasons to be excited about. First, the mystery person assisting the Scabbards will likely be revealed and most fans believe it is Kozuki Toki.

A poll was held over at Reddit on who the mysterious figure is. Fans are torn between Kanjuro, Hiyori, Caribou and Toki but here's why these characters except Toki is the person of interest. Kanjuro, presumably dead, was last seen fighting the Scabbards and was left on the ground fatally injured.

Meanwhile, Hiyori made a commitment to her brother and retainers not to show herself until the war is over. Plus, she has no fighting skills that will allow her to survive in the ongoing onslaught in Onigashima. Caribou is a sound option but the silhouette is far off from his appearance.

Then, there's the fact that Oda uses silhouette when he's teasing a character yet to be revealed. Although Toki was unveiled in Oden's flashback, her appearance might have changed a lot since the time skip.

Meanwhile, fans believe Nico Robin will anticipate Black Maria's move to end the injured Scabbards, setting the stage between the two Femme Fatales of the Straw Hat and Beast Pirates.

Fans might also see the continuation of the ongoing battles in Onigashima. Currently, Franky is engaged in a battle with Sasaki, while Jinbei is battling Who's Who. Also, Luffy, Zoro, Law, Kidd and Killer are struggling against Big Mom and Kaido, whose hybrid form is to be unveiled once the action on the rooftop continues.

Also, the "One Piece" World Top 100 popularity contest is ongoing and fans can vote for their favorite characters here. As of this writing, the 10 characters leading the polls are Monkey D. Luffy, Roronoa Zoro, Vinsmoke Sanji, Trafalgar Law, Portgas D. Ace, Nami, Nico Robin, Sabo, Boa Hancock and Shanks.

"One Piece" spoilers and raw scans are likely to be released on Thursday, Feb. 25.
