"A Flower Falls! The Final Moments of the Most Beautiful Woman in Wano Country" is the 928th episode of the One Piece anime
Orochi takes his rage out on Komurasaki as Robin protects Toko. Brook, Nami, and Shinobu arrive at the banquet hall to aid Robin. Right after Orochi releases his grip on Komurasaki during the commotion, Kyoshiro faces the oiran and seemingly cuts her down. Orochi then pursues Robin and Toko, intending to kill the little girl. Nami manages to stop Orochi with Zeus' help. Afterwards, the group at the castle escapes with Shinobu.
In response to Komurasaki defying him, Orochi goes on a rampage and grabs her with the mouth of his main Yamata no Orochi head. Kyoshiro smiles at the chaos unfolding, and one of the banquet guests pleads for Daikoku to stop Orochi's rampaging, but Daikoku replies that the shogun can do whatever he wants. As Daikoku attempts to attack Robin and Toko, Fujin and Raijin suddenly run into the hall in terror as they are chased by Brook's spirit, which they mistake for a Gashadokuro. The other Orochi Oniwabanshu members start running in fear from Brook as well, and Robin repels some of them with Gigantesco Mano. Nami watches this unfold from the attic, and Shinobu says that they should head out to the banquet hall. Suddenly, a ninja shoots a chain at Nami and wraps it around her neck, though Shinobu quickly frees her from it. The ninja then crawls toward the duo, and Shinobu recognizes him as Hanzo. Hanzo initially recognizes Shinobu, but then decides it is not her due to remembering her as beautiful and enchanting in the past. In response, Shinobu strikes him in the groin with a projectile, incapacitating him. She then makes the floor rot and collapse, causing her, Nami, and Hanzo to go down to the banquet hall.
Part of the floor lands on top of Orochi's head, causing Komurasaki to be dislodged from his mouth. Before Orochi can attack Komurasaki again, Kyoshiro stands in between them and faces the latter. He asks her if she is ready for what is about to happen, and she responds in the affirmative. Kyoshiro then cuts Komurasaki down, apparently killing her and leaving everyone in the banquet hall in shock. Orochi angrily confronts Kyoshiro for doing this, and Kyoshiro responds that he gave her a samurai's mercy to address her committing the unforgivable crime of defying the shogun. Kyoshiro then finds the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance's secret message on the floor nearby and picks it up and puts it in his kimono. Orochi then decides to start chasing after Toko again, and he rampages toward her and Robin. At this point, the Orochi Oniwabanshu realize that Brook cannot harm them and more of Orochi's forces are heading toward the banquet hall. However, Nami brings out Zeus and charges him with storm energy, allowing her to strike Orochi with a thunderbolt. Shinobu then flies Nami, Robin, and Toko out of Orochi Castle on her kite, and she commends Nami's performance as a kunoichi.
The next morning in the Prisoner Mine, Grandpa Hyo approaches Luffy while he is working. Luffy tells Hyo to get his breakfast, and Hyo looks forward to using the meal tickets that Luffy gave him. However, unbeknownst to them, the vice warden Daifugo is watching their exchange. Meanwhile, the prison guards discover that Eustass Kid has managed to escape.
In Okobore Town, Tsuru gives Big Mom a bowl of oshiruko to eat. The small serving does not appease Big Mom's hunger, but she thanks Tsuru for feeding her with the little resources she has. Tama finds out from Chopper that Big Mom is extremely powerful, and so wants to use her to free Luffy from imprisonment. Chopper does not wish to work with her in case her memories suddenly return, but Tama and Momonosuke both push him to get her involved in the plan. Chopper goes to ask her, but becomes frozen by fear, leading Tama and Momonosuke to tell her that there is a lot of oshiruko in Udon. This immediately excites Big Mom, and she agrees to go there.
