EP 812 – 852
Well, it’s been 22 weeks now. Back on April 9th, 2018 I watched my first episode of One Piece and Now 22 weeks later I’ve finally caught up with current episodes. When I started I thought it was going to take me a year to get through all of these episodes but it One Piece was is so good it took me less than half the time. It’s been a pretty fun binge. I look forward to watching it week to week now, but it will definitely be an adjustment. Oh, I guess I’m jumping the gun a little bit you guys probably want my thoughts on the episodes I watched this week.
To pick where we left all last week Luffy and Nami ended up being captured by the Big Mom Pirates once Luffy finally passes out. They end up getting rescued though by Jimbei. Luffy and Sanji end up meeting at the spot they had previously determined. Sanji agrees to come back to the crew, but he wants to save his family who are about to be eliminated by the Big Mom pirates at the wedding so Big Mom can take control of Germa’s technology. Luffy decides that they are all going to help.
Then, Jimbei suggest that they join forces with Capone “Gang” Bege who is secretly plotting to kill Big Mom. They meet, and the crew gets some cool mobster clothes. Eventually, they decide to work with each other and come up with this Big plan to kill Big Mom.
The assassination attempt fails. None of the poison that Caesar made and put into missiles even made it Big Mom. This put the Straw Hats and Bege in a very bad position. Their escape route also got crushed so, they had no choice but to make a run for it. Through a little luck, they manage to put some distance between themselves and their army of enemies.
When they finally make it back to their ship the fall into an ambush and get put in a pretty tough spot and sadly Pedro sacrifices his life to help everyone else get away. It was pretty sad. Jimbei had some encouraging words though that helped.
Luffy not letting Pedro’s sacrifice go in vain, used it as an opportunity to trap Katakuri one of Big Moms Sweet three generals in the Mirror World. Luffy is currently fighting Katakuri in the Mirror World but he’s having some trouble fighting this man that over a billion-berry bounty.
Katakuri seems to be able to do all Luffy’s moves better than him with his Mochi abilities. He’s also faster than Luffy and he can see up to 1 minute in the future with the power of his Haki. Luffy is going to have to push past his limits if he’s going to beat Katakuri. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with to take out Katakuri. Maybe a new form of Fourth Gear or maybe even 5th gear. Who knows…
Sadly, I couldn’t fit everything I wanted to in this post I ended up leaving out how Brook got a copy of the Ponegliff, the truth about Big Mom’s past, and Pudding showing her true colors and then going on an emotional roller coaster. Leaving things out that I feel are important shouldn’t be a problem in the future though since now I plan on writing up one episode at a time since we’ll be watching it week to week. Now that we are all caught up I plan on catching up with my arc reviews and watching other anime. If you’ve seen One Piece and have suggestions on what we should watch next, please leave a comment down below.
