THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Had some nice moments, but the anime managed to make me dislike this part.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

Sumo wrestlers, samurais, this arc has everything.

The animation was pretty good at the end. Overall it was a pretty boring episode though.

Yeah you will see this alot in WANO. this arc is just chock full of Japanese stuff. It is a very Japanese arc. In any case, this specific chapter was actually one of the most boring ones that fans didn't really care for because of where it was potentially placed at in the more important plot. It felt like some little side trip or something. How ever i guarantee you this arc will surpass your expectations. There is a reason that ODA has been wanting to draw and foreshadow wano in the story for so long. You will see

Yeah, my expectations are high. Every arc in One Piece starts off slow in my opinion.

I hope it make better progress, my expectation is too high for this because of people on the internet seems to hype from this arc even my friend but I don't see why
many boring episodes, many unreasonable event happened (like Luffy decide to use katana but he only uses punch)

I hope the story gets better before I drop it
or no more boring episode

haha, luffy will never change you know that. I guess thats the kind of charm to his character, but also his nativity is pretty bad. Definitely not Pirate king material. Though he thinks a bit more rationally then when he first started this adventure. I am not sure what oda is going for in regards to that. it seems like OP is coming to an end soon and Luffy still makes horrible decisions and premature mistakes that can put his crew in Jeopardy.

In any case with that being said, with out spoiling anything, lets just say WANO is a Key arc in the one piece story line. It will push the envelope of the plot beyond anything we have seen. (we are starting to see this now in the manga) Even oda him self says One piece will start to become more and more exciting from here on out. So this would be a real bad time to drop the show, just keep sticking with it. That is all I am saying about this. No more hints lol

Hmm all of the mobs were on same level as the ones who kidnaped Otama, Luffy uses conquares Haki so it doesn't cause a ruckus but he didn't use it to stop Otama from getting kidnaped. Now I knw he is dumb but this thing is too forced.

What a funny and exciting episode ๐Ÿ˜‚. I love Okiku, she's cute, but also great, she has a deadly look. Is it my idea or is it a bit bipolar, or does it just appear? xD. Zoro and Luffy do know how to be discreet, hahaha, great riot that they just did. Poor chubby, he was and will be ridiculous.

Ps: I liked the sound effect of Haki better before this arc ๐Ÿ˜…, it sounded more imposing worthy of a King.

Well, I wasn't really big fan of this part of the arc so hopefully it will end in the next episode. But damn, judging from the PV, it seems they are going to drag the hell out of Luffy vs Urashima which is really boring and uninteresting.

Lmao good episode, but what's up with Okiku? Split suppressed personality? She switches a lot it would seem

So next episode wil be completely about that stupid sumo match I really don't give two fucks about... Realistically Luffy should just oneshot that fat fuck and search for Otama before she gets tortured but hey, let's enter a sumo match instead!

This is still Toei, don't get your hopes up. It will look average at best.

At the preview for next episode we see Urashima using the same technique as
enraged Luffy when he was hypnotized & fought the Black Cat Pirates.
So many flying hands.

I really like samurai manga and anime so I waited for one piece to reach this arc looking foward to oda depiction of it. so far I'm a little disappointed, to many boring and nonsensical things. like fluffy holding a sword but still punching people and having khaki but not using it to save tama. does the arc get better? I wanna keep watching or maybe finally transferring to reading it but idk.

This episode left a very bad taste in my mouth. If this keeps going we'll have ourselves the second coming of Dressrosa, a fucking great arc filled to the brim with emotion but with shit tier pacing.

I think that I might wait not for the next episodes to drop but for the One Pace team to make them enjoyable.

The story will get better once Holdem is taken out and Luffy meets Kinemon again. Including introducing a new story element that has never been in One Piece up until now.

Alright ep., but the problem with this anime/maybe manga have always been that the author/director make the women (especially the side characters) look so weak. No screentime for a side-character is shown. It's always the main character who comes and saves the day. It's good to see him too, but it's annoying that they portrait him as the hero who saves all the woman. Where is the woman power in this series. If she have a famous sword and is a samurai show us more than cutting a top-knot, which was by the way very good move, but however it was too short. The women need to participate more in the fights and not be some scared weak ducks. -.-


In this case, for example, I would actually expect that she resisted that slap of the purple haired sumo wrestler, not being saved by Luffy. It's true this is a shounen anime, but at the same time the women need to be portrait stronger than they actually are. There are actually some good shounen anime where women are portrait stronger than this one.


All in all, a fine ep. Nothing special to brag about beside that the animation looked alright. What I really love with this director is that he doesn't show the same frame of the audience again and again when something happens. This was the case in Dressrosa arc in the Colosseum fights which I somehow found very annoying.

Kiku is a decent fighter, she's just holding back because she doesn't wanna draw attention. I'm confident she could have beaten Sumo guy with no difficulty.

What a boring episode. Even this new conqueror haki animation is boring. The first ones were so much better!

I agree with most people here. Nothing to much happened in this episode and atm it feels more like a side story. But tbh the kings haki at the beginning was pretty cool. The new style they use for haki overall looks so good.

I can't really judge Okiku. In one moment she's acts like a super shy and helpless girl and in the next moment like when she cut the bun of Yokozuna she looked like a real samurai for a moment.

Zoro with all his samurai pride didn't want to cut a naked man :D

I was hoping Luffy would go to help Okiku. Luffy as a sumo wrestler. Should be fun to see this fight.

You may be right, but there have been moments where they have deliberately made the women look weak. But yeah as you said it may be that she was holding back.

It's just that the anime is dragging out the things from the manga. I honestly enjoyed this part in the manga because it wasn't so slow. But the anime is adapting half a chapter per episode now, so it feels really dragged out and boring.

The arc gets a lot better though. I can recommend reading the manga because it's way better.

Man i stoppped watching OP at episode 825, 2 days ago i was like "eh lets just see hows OP now" since i knew big mom arc was over i went for it plus i heard people saying about the new animation of wano arc and since PW4 is coming out... so i started watching again, and god... Big mom arc was the most boring shit i ever watched the only good thing was Purin and Katakuri, 902 episodes and one piece still the same shit, Luffy beats people with 1 billion Belli(Katakuri), then says "im strong" and after some minutes later he cant beat a fucking BatMan and a gazzelle guy, this is just boring and one of OP biggest problem with power leveling, how the anime/Mangaka makes chars hold their powers, ffs Luffy has 1,5b belli bounty he should fking 1hit this figurants chars...aside from that at least the animation is worth the time now, and O-Kiku seems interesting (plus she a beauty) oh yeh and finnaly we see best girl wearing a Yukata Robin <3

PS: from a 24min episode we have 10ish minutes of content cuse of the way toei animation been draggin episodes after the time Skip....it makes the show boring which makes me sad cuse i like OP and many of it chars.

I got you and of course I undertand you but it's what happens in the long series like this.
If you don't get down the level of Luffy or main characters the audience it's gonna get bored.
Bored of what? Bored of an superpowerfull and over strong character as you expect of his recompense.
Plus, maybe you feel like this because of you are reading in paralel the manga and sometimes this gets things so much boring than sees the anime without know anything.
Maybe that is one of the reasons why you stopped to follow the animation and got bored during the arc of Big Mom.

Okk this episode was totally dragged to show that Luffy is a wannabe Sumo... but at least they didn't moved it to more than 1 ep xD

Overall pacing is slow... but I guess starting episodes are always weird

Luffy better slap Holdem even harder after what he's doing to Tama.. D:<

This is probably the first time that I didn't like seeing Luffy's conqueror's haki I mean what the hell was that yellow light thing? If they think adding that makes it cooler then it had the opposite effect
