One Piece's anime is starting to set the stage for the next major arc from Eiichiro Oda's original manga series, and the promo for the next episode of the series is setting up for a return from Boa Hancock, Koby, and even Blackbeard! As One Piece begins to fill in the gaps of what happened after the Reverie while Luffy and the Straw Hats were stuck on Wano, some big reveals have shaken up the pirate hierarchy in some pretty wild ways. And with the Seven Warlords system dissolved during the Reverie, it left the Warlords themselves fighting against the Navy.
With the newest episode of the series updating the Straw Hats' new place in the world, and explaining how Buggy ended up being recognized as a new Emperor of the Sea, the next episode of the anime teases a follow up to another former Warlord, Boa Hancock. Picking up from the tease that saw the Marines attacking her island following the Reverie, it's teased that both Koby and Blackbeard were involved in a chaotic new battle. You can check out the promo for One Piece Episode 1087 below.

They tease the One Piece anime as such, "Monkey D. Luffy refuses to let anyone or anything stand in the way of his quest to become the king of all pirates.
