The adventures of Monkey D. Luffy and his crew in search of the legendary treasure – One Piece, have been serializing chapters for over two decades.
This 900+ chapter series is often regarded as the King of Manga because of it being the highest-grossing manga for a decade.

Chapter 991 will be released in the Weekly Shonen Jump on Sunday, September 27, 9:30 am PDT.
3. Chapter 991 Speculations/Predictions
Chapter 987 officially kicked off the war on Onigashima. With the declaration of an all out war against Kaido, Big Mom, and Orochi, Luffy drew a lot of attention to himself.
Since there is a lot going on at the same time, it is more than likely that we will see parallel storylines instead of just one.
I. Sulong Form Minks
The Mink tribe’s dreaded Sulong form was first hinted to us during the Zou arc and we saw it in action for the first time during the Whole Cake Island arc.
This form seemed overpowered, as someone like Carrot, who is relatively weak, became so powerful that she was able to take down dozens of ships by herself.
Chapter 987 ended with Nekomamushi pointing out that the full moon is visible. We will definitely see the devastating power of the Sulong form of Nekomamushi & Inuarashi in the coming chapters.
II. Drake Joins the Rebellion
Chapter 990 showed us that X Drake has been kicked out of the Beast Pirates. For helping Law escape the prison, X Drake is now being hunted by Queen.
In this desperate situation, Drake reached out to Luffy to let him help in defeating the Beast Pirates.
Knowing Luffy, he will be able to sense the good intentions emanating from Drake and will let him join the rebellion forces.
While this is not a major help to the rebellion, they need every last bit of power they can to take down the Beast Pirates.
III. Strawhats vs. Big Mom?
Wano’s matchups are turning out to be even messier than the matchups in Marineford. With so many insanely strong characters gathered in one place, we are bound to witness chaos.
Chapter 988 ended with Franky ramming his Kurosai motorbike into Big Mom’s face. This may lead up to the Strawhats ganging up on Big Mom to delay her so that Luffy can go join the fight against Kaido.
While Kaido is surely going to be taken down at the end of this arc, Big Mom will definitely survive as her character arc will not end till Elbaph.
4. Chapter 991 Raw Scans, Leaks & Spoilers
Raw scans for the Chapter 991 of the One Piece manga have not yet been released.
These scans usually surface on the net 2-3 days before the weekly release day, i.e., Monday. The scans will probably be released by September 24, so be sure to check back!
5. Where To Read One Piece
6. Chapter 990 Plot
Chapter 990, titled “A Lone Force,” starts by showing that Sasaki has escaped. The tree binding him was taken down from Big Mom’s attack and he is officially back into the fight.
We then see the scenes from Onigashima’s roof where the Minks are fighting Jack’s forces. At the end of this scene we see the silhouette of Nekomamushi and Inuarashi’s sulong form attack Jack.
Back at the performance hall, all hell is breaking loose as both sides relentlessly attack each other. In the midst of this, King contacts all Tobi Roppo to inform them that the right to challenge an All-Star has been put on hold.
The Tobi Roppo are now given a new mission – stop anyone trying to climb to Onigashima’s roof.
In this chaos, we see X Drake and Hawkins having a conversation about the survival chances of “that man” being 1%. Who’s Who comes in and asks Drake for his help in taking down Queen while everyone else is busy.
The scene shifts to the fight where the samurai are trying to carve a path in the enemy forces for the Strawhats.
One of the numbers swings his giant mace towards them, but is promptly disarmed by Zoro cutting his weapon in two. Luffy then goes in with his Gear 4 attack to take the number down.
Before the attack hits, we see Drake – beaten up and on the floor. Law escaping from the Flower Capital is traced back to him, and he is kicked out of the Beast Pirates.
In this moment of desperation, he runs and finds one of the numbers in his way. In sync with Luffy, he takes down one of the numbers and asks Luffy to let him join the rebellion.
7. Chapter 990 Cover Page
Apart from the main storyline in the manga chapters, One Piece also advances the storyline by featuring scenes around the world in the form of cover stories.
Chapter 990’s cover continues the Gang Bege’s OH MY FAMILY cover story. Convinced by the proof given by Pound in the last chapter, Lola and Chiffon pull him to the ship.
Hopefully this cover story will conclude soon, because frankly it has gone on for too long.
8. About One Piece
One Piece is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine since July 22, 1997, and has been collected into 96 tankōbon volumes.
The man who had acquired everything in this world, the Pirate King, is Gol D. Roger. The final words he said at the execution tower were
“My treasures? If you want it, I’ll let you have it. Look for it; I left all of it at that place.”
These words sent many to the seas, chasing their dreams, headed toward the Grand Line, in search of One Piece. Thus began a new age!
Seeking to be the greatest pirate in the world, young Monkey D. Luffy also heads toward the Grand Line in search of One Piece.
With his diverse crew joining him along the way, consisting of a swordsman, marksman, navigator, cook, doctor, archaeologist, and cyborg-shipwright, this will be one memorable adventure.
