Devoted readers of the popular Japanese manga series are now thrilled for its upcoming new chapter after it took a temporary hiatus. Eiichiro Oda works very hard to make the plot of this famous manga series more interesting. Now that the release date for One Piece Chapter 952 is fast approaching, fans are curious about the possible happenings in the imminent new installment.

No official details about the forthcoming new chapter have been made public as of yet, pushing some readers to create theories and speculations. Among the most popular theories is the possible alliance of Big Mom Pirates captain Charlotte Linlin and Beast Pirates captain Kaido. Rumors are rife that the pair would continue fighting in One Piece Chapter 952.

However, at some point, Big Mom is said to ask for Kaido's help to bring Monkey D. Luffy and the other Straw Hat Pirates down. It is claimed that One Piece Chapter 952 would feature the past bond of Big Mom and Kaido, who used to be members of the Rocks. The Rocks, for starters, is a group of powerful and influential pirates before the late Pirate King, Gol D. Roger, reigned.

Before One Piece Chapter 952, Eiichiro Oda already teased about the past relationship of the two emperors when Emperor Big Mom reached out to Emperor Kaido when the Whole Cake Island Arc came to a close. It remains to be seen, however, if the duo would set aside their personal issues and become friends again to kill off Luffy and his friends.

Other One Piece Chapter 952 suggested that Roronoa Zoro, who is also known as "Pirate Hunter" Zoro, would act as a temporary Straw Hat Pirates captain since Luffy has yet to recover from The Mummy virus. Zoro is, currently, looking for the Shusui sword and he is rumored to meet the weapon's first owner in the forthcoming new installment.

Zoro would be able to meet Gyukimaru, who is the current owner of the Shusui. When the Straw Hat vice-captain asked Gyukimaru to give him the sword, the latter refused to do so for some unknown reasons. Kawamatsu would, then, try to attack Luffy's. Luckily, Zoro was able to defend himself. It remains unclear if Zoro would be victorious in getting the sword again in the up-and-coming One Piece Chapter 952.

The digital scans for the imminent new installment would be available this weekend. The upcoming chapter would arrive on Aug. 19. Stay tuned to Business Times for more One Piece Chapter 952 spoilers, predictions, theories, news, and updates!
