Gotti attacks the Marines.

Short SummaryEdit

Following Oden's execution, the Nine Red Scabbards raced to rescue his family in Oden Castle, which Kaido had set ablaze as he confronted Momonosuke. Toki sent Momonosuke 20 years forward in time with Kin'emon, Kanjuro, Raizo, and Kikunojo while Kawamatsu took Hiyori to safety. Toki then appeared in front of the onlooking citizens and gave her prophecy before she died.

Denjiro went to a hut, and emerged after a long period of time with his appearance having changed due to his rage. He went to the Flower Capital and started attracting followers, calling himself Kyoshiro. As Kyoshiro, Denjiro rose to become a yakuza boss and entered Orochi's service as his bodyguard. Seven years after Oden's death, he took in Hiyori after finding her on the street, and raised her to become Komurasaki as they prepared for the day of the final battle.

Long SummaryEdit

As the Roger Pirates were leaving Skypiea, Kozuki Oden lifted his son above his head, allowing him to see the horizon, and told him that this is just a small part of the vast world outside Wano Country. During their travels, Oden started teaching Momonosuke various things, much to the surprise of the rest of the crew regarding the subjects he is teaching his young boy. After Oden returned from his travels, Oden spent time with his family, told his retainers about Zou, and listened to his daughter music.

As the Scabbards ran from the Beasts Pirates, Shinobu brought the samurai their weapons, allowing them to cut through the enemy. Shinobu then asked if she could became one of the family retainers, to which Kin'emon replied that none of them asked to become one, so it is up to her to decide, which she tearfully accepted. At the back of the group, Inuarashi and Nekomamushi started to argue, blaming the other for being Kaido's spy, which ended with them being cought by one of the Numbers. Denjiro and Ashura Doji staied back to help them, while the rest head forward to Kuri.

At Oden Castle, The Beasts Pirates surrounded the place, as a fire was set below it. Inside, Kozuki Toki held her children as the pirate broke in. After knocking her out, Kaido held Momonosuke by the throat on the roof, planing to kill him to end the Kozuki lineage. Momonosuke replied that he will succeed his father, as a great warrior. Kaido then tossed Momonosuke inside the burning castle as he flow away. The Scabbards then crushed in, and Toki called them forward to instruct them about the plan.

After Kin'emon group was sent away, and Kawamatsu escaped with Hiyori, Toki rode to Bakura Town, to deliver her prophecy, as she recalled her life with Oden, before collapsing from her wounds. Fearful of the prophecy, Orochi could not stop shivering. Meanwhile, Ashura, Kawamatsu, and Denjiro prepare themselves for the 20 years to come.

Sometime later, Denjiro's grief and anger, transformed him, making his appearance unrecognizable. Denjiro then headed to the Flower Capital, where he introduced him self as "Kyoshiro", and gathered new followers. With his new reputation, Kyoshiro met with Orochi, and began serving him as the Yakuza boss, taking Hyogoro's position. At the same time, the citizens of the capital began noticing Kyoshiro tired appearance, calling him "Dozing", unbeknownst to them that the reason for this was Denjiro spent his nights stealing money as the "Ushimitsu Kozo".

Thirteen years ago, after Hiyori left Kawamatsu, she was found and brought to Kyoshiro, who recognized her and brought her in. After identifying himself, Denjiro swore to protect Hiyori in Kawamatsu place, and trained her to become "Komurasaki", hiding until the day of the battle foretold by Toki.
