Fans can hardly wait for the “One Piece” Chapter 963 release date to arrive. After Oden attracted a few loyal followers and established himself in Kuri, it appears that Eiichiro Oda is hinting on the introduction of new powerful characters that will complete the nine Red Scabbards as well as the rise of the three powerful Yonkos in the next installment of the hit manga series.

“One Piece” Manga Chapter 962 is basically a chapter dedicated to Oden’s backstory. After successfully defeating the Mountain God and forced out of the Capital, Oden decided to go to Kuri for a little “sightseeing” after he learned that it is crawling with criminal and is basically an area where lawlessness prevailed.

By this time, he already has two loyal followers that he just can’t get rid of. Denjiro and Kin’emon decided to follow Oden and announced themselves as his retainers.

On the way, the group met several other characters, most of which later became members of the Nine Red Scabbards, as predicted by a previous “One Piece” manga spoiler by Latin Times. Oden’s group met Kikunojo and Izo, who were still children at that time, Kanjuro who had this weird habit of stealing hair from both the living and the dead, and the former Oniwabanshu member Kaizo.

Meanwhile, the strongest fighter of Kuri, Boy Ashura, instructed his subordinates to capture Oden. However, his men did not need to find Oden since he came to their stronghold instead and proceeded to defeat everyone, including the boss Ashura, who also became his trusted subordinate.

With the help of his retainers, Oden established law and order in Kuri, and for the first time, its citizens enjoyed peace. His father was impressed and recanted his decision to disown Oden. In fact, he was so proud of his achievement that he even named Oden the Daimyo of Kuri.

Now, here are a few interesting “One Piece” Chapter 963 predictions. On the last page of the previous chapter, Kawamatsu was seen strolling along the beach when he noticed two bodies that washed up ashore.

According to Otakukart, it’s highly likely that the two are Nekomamushi and Inuarashi, The former is a feline mink while the latter is a canine mink which seems to match with Kawamatsu’s description when he can’t decide whether they are grotesque monsters or hairy men.

There’s also a good chance that “One Piece” 963 might also briefly feature how the survivors of the destroyed Rocks Pirates recruited their own crew. If this happens in the upcoming manga installment, expect the rise of Whitebread, Kaido and Big Mom.

“One Piece” Chapter 963 release date is on November 24, 2019. Stay tuned to Latin Times for updates on the popular manga series.
