As the plot thickens in the iconic manga series One Piece, speculation surrounding the mysterious circumstances of King Cobra's death and Imu's potential as a formidable antagonist continues to grip fans worldwide. Chapter 1085, slated for release in early June 2023, promises to shed light on these enigmas.

The upcoming chapter will be available to readers in the US, UK, and Europe on June 4, 2023, and in Japan on June 5, 2023, following a scheduled week-long hiatus by the manga's creators.

In Japan, fans can eagerly anticipate the new chapter at 12:00 AM JST on June 5. For international fans, here are the projected release times in various regions:

Pacific Time: 8:00 AM, June 4 Central Time: 10:00 AM, June 4 Eastern Time: 11:00 AM, June 4 British Time: 4:00 PM, June 4

The events leading up to Chapter 1085 have unfolded in riveting fashion at Pangea Castle in Sacred Marijoa, where protagonists Sabo and Jewelry Bonney launched their audacious plan to liberate Kuma. While executing their mission, Bonney reveals she has been tracking the activities of the revolutionary army.

After gaining possession of the keys to the slave collars, Sabo tasks Karasu with informing Morley to evacuate Kuma and other prisoners. Bonney discloses her intention to travel to Egghead Island after their operation in Marijoa, hoping to enlist Dr. Vegapunk's aid in restoring Kuma's mind.

The pair separate after an encounter with castle guards, overhearing whispers of a legendary phantom room within the castle grounds - a revelation that piques Sabo's curiosity.

In a parallel storyline, King Cobra of Alabasta gains an audience with the Gorosei, recounting the formation of the World Government 800 years ago by 20 distinct monarchs. These monarchs relocated to Sacred Marijoa, forming the Celestial Dragons, the world's ruling class. A vacant throne was erected as a symbol of their unity, with each monarch bequeathing a weapon to assure no single ruler would emerge.

The Gorosei's discussion with King Cobra takes a surprising turn when Imu unexpectedly appears and audaciously seats himself on the empty throne, sending shockwaves through the castle and hinting at potential turmoil in the chapters to come.

Fans are eagerly anticipating the release of Chapter 1085, with theories flying about Imu's true identity and motives. Whether Imu turns out to be Roger, Lili's younger brother, a young boy, a woman, or even Luffy's mother, the possibilities seem endless, keeping the One Piece fandom captivated.

While some characters remain on the quest for the One Piece Treasure, others find themselves marooned on Egghead Island. As we count down the days to the release of Chapter 1085, fans are excited to unravel the many mysteries that One Piece continues to offer.
