Before moving ahead here is a quick summary of what had happened so far in the story:
Previous Chapter Summary
Yamato encourages Momonosuke to make large flame clouds, but he claims it’s easier said than done. He then thinks back to the day his home was destroyed, when his mother, Kozuki Toki, told him to flee to the future. He admitted he felt he couldn’t unless she and his sister accompanied him, but Kin’emon reminds him that in the Land of Wano, when one suffers a great failure, they forfeit their life, and therefore, he can’t question the resolve of his mother.
On the roof, Kaidou remarks on how Luffy was able to actually grab lighting, as Luffy uses a new move called Gomu Gomu no Thunderbolt and hurls the lightning bolt at Kaidou. Kaidou, however, sidesteps it and smacks him with Hassaikai, sending him flying off only for Luffy to grab another lightning bolt and swing around and back at Kaidou with an inflated leg.
He retorts that he is just a kid, but Kin’emon says that with Oden gone, he isn’t just his heir anymore. With tears in his eyes too, Kin’emon begged for Momonosuke to give him another chance to fight rather than die a shameful death by fire. Though he was reluctant, Momonosuke agreed to leave his mother behind with his followers. In the present, Momonosuke regains his own conviction and declares that he would never be able to face his mother if he gave up now, and continues to try and stop the island.
