Hello Everyone!
Welcome back to another fun-filled anime review.


The One Piece has been keeping us on edge with this new war arc, and it is nothing less than magnificent.

Dogstorm and Nekomunshi from Zou and a bunch of their followers have assembled outside Onagashima. They have been waiting for the full moon so that they can be at their strongest when facing Kaido. As per plan they transform into their Sulong form and attack Kaido. Jack, one of Kaido’s top men, tells him that it is a momentary transformation and he can last the attack force until it ends.

Back at the main stage, Momonosuke’s execution turned out to be a historic turning point for Wano due to the sudden attack of the Akazaya Nine on Kaido. Shinobu tries to remove him from his shackles, but Queen spots her. She is flung from the top of the stage and plummets to the bottom. At that moment, Momonosuke’s shackles break and he floats on thin air.

Queen and King were shocked, suspect that it might be the work of the devil. It’s non-other than Sanji in his raid suit. He stops King’s advances and throws Momonosuke onto Shinobu’s safe hands.

He commends Momo between all this madness. Sanji and Momonuske have had a lot of funny fights and disagreements but they always seem to make things right. Sanji accepted Momo as a man on this day and it is wonderful to see their relationship bloom.

While Sanji wasn’t looking King transforms into his animal form. He turns into a pterodactyl and almost pierces into Sanji’s stomach. King is not kidding when he says that he will make a hole in him and split him in 2. They crash into a building and the fate of Sanji is again, uncertain and hangs in the balance.

Big Mom goes all out against Luffy. To recap, Luffy ruined the wedding, the tea party, and now the fire festival at Onagashima. Big Mom getting angry at Luffy is the most natural thing and from her point of view for good reason. She attacks Luffy and he realizes that he has to deal with her here and now before she helps the others.

Big Mom spots Zeus and rushes towards Nami to attack her. Zeus falls into the clutches of Big Mom. Nami is heartbroken but at that moment Sanji enters the scene, and this is by far one of the funniest moments since the war arc started.

He enters in his General Franky robot and squishes Big Mom’s head with its tires. Brook also joins him and It was so satisfying to see hope restored for the alliance.

When something serious is going on the Strawhats getting into trouble, in the most hilarious is what One Piece is famous for. It is a fun story about adventure and drama. Eichiro Oda hypes up the scene in every chapter and we can’t get enough of this. One Piece continues to build upon its war arc and it continues to excite every reader. I would suggest you read this spectacle from the comfort of your home.

Until Next time. See ya!

One Piece Episode 935 : Zoro Stunned ! The Shocking Identity Of The Mysterious Woman ! – A Review

Hello everyone!
Welcome back to another fun-filled review.
Today we are going to discuss One Piece episode 935.

Let’s dive in.

Introduction:

One Piece is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Eichiro Oda. It has been the top-selling manga in the world for over 2 decades and is still going strong. One Piece follows the story of Monkey D Luffy and the Strawhat pirates in the pursuit of the coveted treasure One Piece. He aims at becoming the pirate king and changing the perspective of the world.

Opening 23:

The new opening Dreami’n On is a treat for manga readers. As always Oda has included a lot of spoilers in the Opening that only the manga readers can find out. It serves the purpose of hyping up people for the events of the upcoming year and the year after that.

The journey of Oden and Whitebeard, the fight between Whitebeard and Gol D Roger, and a glimpse of young Blackbeard as well hype me up.

Next round of Queen’s Sumo Inferno:

The next contenders who are up against Luffy are Alpaca-Man and Armadillo- Man, to of the gifters. Armadillo -Man has a hard shell and has a gun containing sea-stone bullets. Sea- stone is a material considered effective in subduing Devil fruit users. Alpaca- Man has a deadly spit and is also a swordsman.

Armadillo – Man possesses a rock hard body that will enable Luffy to evolve his technique more. He can freely execute his new move on him.

As a manga reader, this was one of the episodes everyone looks forward to. Luffy uses his Haki to predict the movements of the attackers and attack accordingly.

Old man, Hyogoru had lost his will to live, defeated and embarrassed, demoralized to the edge. Luffy has this aura on him that he projects on others which boosts up their morale. Luffy instructs Old Man Hyoguro to follow a certain pattern of movement. He delivers a nice blow on Alapca- man and he goes down.

Armadillo – Man bombards Luffy with bullets but he manages to evade them all. The control over his Haki has improved drastically and he moves with easy, not even graced one bit. He tries to use his new Haki technique on Armadillo- Man but it does not work. He is ambitious and doesn’t want to back down from a fight.

Armadillo- Man, and Alpaca- Man combines their strengths and turns into a spinning top equipped with specific artillery. Luffy evades their shots with Old Man Hyugoro on his back. Finally, he pummels them down with the special Haki. He still is only able to unlock a small amount of that power.

Luffy’s determination to find a new power interest Old man Hyuogoro. He finally understands that his goal is much more than escaping. The next episode is going to be a treat for the fans.

Rasetsu Town Public Prison :

The prisoners that X Drake and Basil Hawkins captured have been reprimanded here. Every one of them had crescent moon tattoos on their legs and hence transferred to this prison. They argue that it is a popular tattoo in the flower capital.

Furkurukoju shows them the flyer that he found which is a call sign for a rebellion against Kaido. The shock and concern about the sudden developments leave them speechless.

Bepo and the others are imprisoned as well. Beaten up to a pulp, they are incapable of moving. The worst of their fears is that if everyone would think that they spilled the beans on the information. They believe that their captain will come to save them.

The real identiy of Komurasaki:

Zoro, Komurasaki, and Otoko recuperate at an abandoned house at Northen Graveyard in the Ringo district. Zoro has been plastered up and is resting.

He wakes up and by his side is Komurasaki, preparing food and medicine to help him. She thanks Zoro for helping in saving their lives.

Otaku wants to help out Zoro with the toad oil she stole from Ussop. I genuinely appreciate how friendly Otoko and Zoro’s interactions are. He is very kind to Otoko and she applies the ointment on him. She touches Zoro’s hands and requests him to stay with him. Zoro is genuinely touched by this and stays as she says.

Eichiro Oda has a purpose for each of his characters. He truly envisions them and flushes out their traits. The sweetness of that girl towards Zoro, him reciprocating those feelings, and providing them with hope is just a wonderful sight.

Zoro eats some food and drinks Sake. He asks details about who they were and why they were attacked by the assassin. She tells him that she made Orochi mad and that’s why the assassin was after them.

As Zoro drinks his Sake, Komurasaki wants to tell him a secret about her identity. She wants to request Zoro in assisting her to find her brother.
” His name is Kozuki Momonosuke,” she says. The shock on Zoro’s face is clear. The rest you can figure out by watching the episode. πŸ˜€
TO BE CONTINUED.

Review:

One Piece slowly and steadily picking up the pace. As Oda has mentioned this is the beginning of the end. Old Man Hyogoru is slowly realizing what kind of person Luffy is. He is a person who’s goals far exceeds anything that he would’ve ever imagined. Toko and Zoro share a wonderful relationship and I love that Zoro can be a sweetheart as well. The reveal that Komurasaki is Hiyori Kozuki is just mind-blowing. The backstory about that is much awaited.

One Piece episode 934 : A Big Turnover! The Three-Sword Style Overcomes Danger! – A Review

Hey Everyone!
Welcome back to another anime review. Today we will be discussing Episode 934 of One Piece.
Let’s dive in.

Introduction:

One Piece is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Eichiro Oda. It has been continuing its story on Shonen for more than 2 decades now. The anime adaptation has been done by Toei animation. It revolves around the life of Monkey D Luffy and the Straw hat pirates, going on an adventure to find the great treasure One Piece. Luffy wishes to become the pirate king and bring change to the world.

Synopsis and review:

Photo Courtesy : One Piece episode 934

As a big-time One Piece fan, I agree that there were low points in the timeline of the anime. Today I can be a proud One Piece fan and say that slump is over. The quality in the animation, the pace, and the story building have reached great proportions after the hiatus.

The episode starts with Zoro, Hitokiri Kamazo, and Gyukimaru standing off against each other on bandit’s bridge. An epic battle is going to wage between these three. The tint for this scene is just like an old samurai film. Blue tint with a little bit of slow-motion animation in the snow. Zoro blasts off to face of Hitokiri Kamazo and engages in an epic fight scene. Zoro is always a treat to watch and I’m proud of Toei for redeeming him for the whole of the Wano Kuni Arc.

We are shown Queen’s Sumo Inferno and Luffy has defeated Batman and Gazzelman. He demands Queen to give him much stronger opponents. Queen sends in a Bear-man who possesses a bear smile fruit.

Luffy starts punching him but the bear does not feel any of his punches. Luffy realizes that he is the perfect opponent to try out the new Haki he has been practicing. He gets excited and charges up his Haki. he imagines an imaginary shield on top of his Haki and stops bear-man’s punch in mid-air without even touching him.

He then proceeds to punch him in the gut piercing through his abdomen, incapacitating him completely.

Dogstorm and Kinemom meet up. They discuss a major problem that could be a hindrance to their plan. The secret of the crescent moon tattoo and the flyer has been exposed and their rebellion may be blocked by Kaido’s men. Their allies are being caught by Kaido and Orochi’s men.

Kyoshiro is seen at the brothel where Komurasaki’s wake has been canceled. People are uneasy due to this. Orochi is furious by Komurasaki’s death and goes crazy.

Orochi’s men are more concerned with the flyer they found. They decipher the contents of the flyer. The fire symbol suggests the fire festival, the two birds suggest twilight, and the snake, in the end, suggests the rendevous point, Habu port.

In Ebisu town, Law, Shinobu, and the straw hats discuss the recent events. With the capture of Bepo and Law’s crew, Shinobu suspects that they might have ratted them out to Orochi’s men. Law is rushing to save them but is being persuaded by all the StrawHats. Shinobu suggests that they kill them to contain the issue, but Law is totally against it.

The people of Wano Kuni have been waiting for 20 years for this day to come and that desperation has led them to take drastic measures. The feelings they go through, the things they have seen are too gruesome. Oda conveys the aspects of slavery, redemption, and vengefulness in this episode. In the end, Otako’s father enters the hut where they were discussing. He immediately understands Shinobu and Kanjuro. A past connection perhaps. Will have to wait and see.

Photo Courtesy : One Piece episode 934

At the bandit’s bridge, Zoro and Hitokiri go head-on. the animation is spot on and every frame is different. I love a good old samurai fight. As Zoro defends against Hitokir, Gyukimaru notices his back is unguarded and pounces to attack him. Zoro dodges but in that instant Hitokiri takes advantage and stabs Zoro with his weapon.

Zoro, being the badass he locks the weapon inside his shoulder so that he cannot remove it. Zoro evades Hitokiri and removes the weapon and uses it as the third sword.

Zoro, being the badass he locks the weapon inside his shoulder so that he cannot remove it. Zoro evades Hitokiri and removes the weapon and uses it as the third sword.

After such a long time, Zoro’s patent fighting music plays and he uses three sword style Onigiri. In a fraction of a second Zoro dodges Hitokiri’s attack and slashes Hitokiri making him bleed on the floor. Zoro has also lost a lot of blood and he falls to the floor.

Photo Courtesy : One Piece episode 934

The epicness in this episode is mind-blowing. When the manga is getting good, the anime is trying to do good to the final arcs as well. I appreciate Toei animation is taking a really good approach to this. They are doing justice to the anime. Looking forward to the upcoming episodes and this episode was totally amazing. 10/10 for this episode.

One Piece Episode 933 : Gyukimaru ! Zoro fights a duel on bandit’s bridge!- A review

Hello Everyone!
Welcome back to another anime review.
Today we are going to discuss episode 933 of One Piece.

One Piece is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Eichiro Oda. It has been running Shueisha Shonen Jump Magazine for over 2 decades. After the Haitus due to the COVID 19 virus, One Piece has been on a roll. Let’s dive into today’s episode.

Luffy continues to fight Queen’s men in his Sumo Inferno along with Old man Hyogor by his side. Luffy wants to learn a new kind of technique that was before shown to him by Rayleigh. He is adamant in learning that moves through this tournament that he pulls out all the stops. He understands that it is the only way by which he can take down Kaido.

The next round begins and it is against the gifters, Batman ( I hope there are no copyright issues there πŸ˜€ ) and Gazzeleman. These were the same people who abducted Tama from Luffy’s hand, leading to an altercation with Holdem.

Photo Courtesy : One Piece episode 933

The animation in this episode looks fluid. Luffy takes down Gazzelman with his Haki in a single blow. Batman rapidly shoots arrows from the air. Luffy dodges all his attacks like a swift ninja.

He remembers Rayleigh’s words when he says that before using that specific kind of Haki he has to imagine an invisible armor around him. Through this process, he can defeat an opponent with a direct strike and you don’t even have to touch an opponent to land a blow on him.

We jump to the next scene where Zoro is confronting Gyukimaru. He suspects that he has stolen his sword Shisui. This ends up in an epic fight to the death. Zoro is told about Ryumu , the legendary samurai of Wano who fended off pirates who were searching for gold there. He is slightly enticed by this fact but all Zoro wants is his sword back.

He hears a voice calling for help. When he turns to look, it is none other than Komurasaki and the girl who smiles Toko. They are frantically running towards the bandit’s bridge and chased by someone mysterious.

This person flies in from the sky to assassinate Komurasaki and Toko but his efforts are thwarted by Zoro. His name is Hitokiri Kamazo. He is a wanted man in Wano. He was apparently sent by Orochi to finish off Komurasaki and the little girl.

Zoro agrees to handle the issue in return for Sake and Food. He has met a very strong swordsman. At the end of the episode, Zoro removes his robe to be freer. Now the fun begins.

My review:

I thoroughly enjoyed this episode. It had action, a great pace, and the animation was flawless. Luffy’s character development is not noticed by many but he has changed in leaps and bounds. I feel like now he is thinking more before attacking ( I’ll regret these words ahead in the story: Spoilers!!!).

Whenever Zoro appears on the screen, he has this great presence to him. The fight scenes with Zoro involved are badass. He is an all-around slasher when it comes to protecting someone. The next episode is also going to be incredible and something to look forward too.
