One Piece Chapter 1059 was a bombshell of recent data, because it noticed the return of many fan-favorite characters. The Hancock sisters, Rayleigh, Koby, Shakky, and the Blackbeard Pirates reappeared after disappearing from historical past for some time.
This chapter additionally noticed the debut of the World Authorities’s terrifying new deployable weapon: the Seraph. An upgraded model of the Pacifistas, who had been modeled after former Shichibukai Bartholomew Kuma and endowed with the means to shoot gentle beams like Admiral Kizaru, Seraphim are an total improve. When the Pacifistas first appeared in the “Sabaody Archipelago” arc, the Straw Hats struggled to take down a single one, solely succeeding after two years of coaching. Seraphs, on the different hand, are a lot more highly effective than earlier fashions, able to destroying large elements of an island in a single assault.
Two Seraphim had been proven in the chapter, and like the Pacifistas earlier than them, they look like modeled after the Shichibukai. A Seraph resembling Dracule Mihawk was proven carving up an enormous chunk of the mountain on Amazon Lily, the place most of the chapter takes place. The opposite Seraph on the island seems precisely like Amazon Lily’s Empress Boa Hancock. Maybe most curiously, these Seraphim have the our bodies of a brand new race of individuals launched in the Wano arc: the Lunaria.
The Lunaria had been a race of moon worshipers who lived on the Purple Line, and so they had been equated with gods at the time of their existence. They’ve the distinctive means to provide and emit flames for terrifying assault energy, but additionally defensive skills. Their resilience is unmatched, as proven by Zoro’s combat in opposition to King, the final residing Lunaria. Lunarias are distinguished by the flames they stick with it their backs, however in addition they have white hair, darkish pores and skin, and black wings. Whereas it’s unknown why they possess these traits, it’s identified that each one Lunarias possess them, and subsequently, so do Seraphim.
The Lunarias had been in all probability chosen as a “base” by the World Authorities to construct the Seraphim due to their assault energy and resistance. Via an unknown course of, they had been in a position to make them immensely highly effective, very similar to the Shichibukai, which their look displays. After the “Dressrosa” arc uncovered the corruption of the Grand Corsairs to the world, the World Authorities abolished the Shichibukai System, sending dozens of warships to hunt them down. Nonetheless, there now seem like causes that transcend exposing corruption.
With the Seraph, the World Authorities basically has the Shichibukai beneath its full management; excellent troopers who will do no matter they are saying. Although they are solely imitations of the actual ones, the energy the Seraphim have proven up to now proves that they are going to be a formidable impediment to anybody who crosses their path.
