Great episode. I liked the flashbacks with Garp and Luffy. So Sengoku is a giant budha. I always wondered what powers he had, but it didn't looked so great. Mr. 3 did something good and saved Ace unlike Buggy. Boa was so funny when she said that Garp is her grandfather. Finally Ace is free. Now we can see the duo in action.
Amazing episode. Finally Ace is free! :D His entrance was pretty damn awesome.

Fucking this. For real guys, this is the episode 480 discussion, not LOL I'M COOL I'M GONNA GIVE OUT OBVIOUS HINTS BECAUSE I READ THE MANGA HERP DERP. It's great that you read the manga and all, but don't be faggots and ruin it for the people who only watch the anime.
Great ep. I loved how they wnet and showed Luffy and Garps past. Im a manga reader but I cant wait to see how much they will animate the events to come.
Manga Readers only
To the other manga readers dont give hints about whats going to happen cause that was the reason I started reading manga since someone told me how this arc ends. It really takes away from how much you can enjoy it.
A man who knows nothing and says something IS the dumbest person alive. A man who knows something and says nothing could possibly be the smartest person in the world -Unknown
Anime-only watchers should now stay away from this forum until the current arc ends. Otherwise the epic-ness of the conclusion of this arc is going to haunt you for life.
I'm surprised Ace got freed in this episode, Luffy covered so much distance in this episode AND freed Ace, all in a few minutes. The flames bursting out, god, it seemed forever since Ace's flames were last animated. Now they just need to free Marco, and the whole arena can start the fire heat brawl now. :D
Man they stretched this out! But it was well worth it. The whole time Luffy was standing, smiling on that platform I was just like, "uh... you wanna hurry up? Sengoku! Sengoku!" Now that Ace is free it's time to unleash the gates of hell. I'm really excited for this arc now.

Well, thanks for the heads up ^^.
Though I fear I was already spoilered just by reading the title of the most recent topic from the manga board while being on the forum overview once :/
How lame a way to get spoilered is that -.-
Something about a time lap and some new crew members of the Straw Hats. Haven't confirmed it though, and I don't plan to ^^.
Anyway, great episode, I didn't expect to see Ace getting freed yet, but it's great to finally see it happen.
The animation was amazing. I'm disappointed that they didn't focus on Mr. 3's words regarding Bon Clay a bit more. I found that part to be moving in the manga, and I was looking forward to it in the anime, since they usually tend to lengthen certain scenes for dramatic purposes. Oh well.
The episode was amazing! The fight between Luffy and Garp must've been hard for them.. I mean.. Garp tried to raise a son in his image as an ideal Marine but totally went opposite to his thinking.. In actuality.. Luffy and Ace grew up to be "good" pirates.. which made their fight so emotional..
Last part was the much awaited reunion and rescue of Ace! Damn the feeling after his cuffs came off was exhilarating! haha
