"Oden's Determination! Whitebeard's Test!" is the 963rd episode of the One Piece anime.

Short Summary

Kozuki Oden's dreams to leave Wano lead him directly to Whitebeard after he learns of the pirate's arrival. After a brief battle, Oden begs Whitebeard to let him join his crew. Whitebeard denies his request due to concerns about Oden's character. Once their ship is repaired, the Whitebeard Pirates leave at night to avoid Oden's advances but he catches up anyway, attaching a chain to the ship and riding with Izo through the ocean. Marco saves Izo and brings him onto the Moby Dick where he is tied up. Whitebeard tells Oden that if he holds on for three days, he can join the crew.

Three days have passed and Oden only has an hour left before he can join the crew. However, after hearing the screams of Amatsuki Toki, Oden lets go of the chain to save her life.
