Another week and another One Piece Episode. This weeks episode was mostly just Luffy VS Katakuri. Katakuri said he wasn’t going to underestimate Luffy. Which was pretty cool because we got to see Katakuri use his devil fruit awakening. Much like how Doflamingo was able to turn the things around him into strings, Katakuri was able to turn the things around him and Luffy into Mochi. This ability allowed him to seemingly defeat Luffy by burying him underneath a mountain of mochi. We all know that Luffy will escape though.
We also got to see some of the other Big Mom pirates talk about Luffy and some of the other Straw Hats. They decided that they will no longer keep underestimating the Straw Hats. I felt like this was refreshing because the antagonist is always underestimating the main characters in anime. Now that the Big Mom Pirates have decided to go all out when the Straw Hats beat them everyone will know its just because they were better. I look forward to that.
Lastly, we got to see a brief scene with Grema 66. They beat all ten thousand of the soldiers that the Big Mom Pirates sent after them. They are truly superhuman. Which is something we already knew but to defeat ten thousand soldiers with four people is pretty crazy. The icing on the cake though is that they were able to use this unique ability to sound like one of their defeated enemies while on the transponder snail with the other Big Mom Pirates. They used this ability to make the Big Mom Pirates think they had beat Germa 66, and they also got an update on what’s going on with the Straw Hats. Who knows what they’ll do next but I’m looking forward to it.
