    That was sick. How many times is Luffy gonna stand back up after getting knocked down.

    Toei has a hard on for DBZ or something. Luffy with the Yamcha pose.

    Anyhow, it was a decent episode. The pacing was brutal, but it was animated well, and nothing extra dumb for the fillers. The source material wasn't too great at this point in the story regardless. We need at least another 5-10 chapters/episodes to get to the meat of the battle.

    Toei also did a great job of outlining how big Katakuri's copycat Elephant Gun was. There are some doubters to how strong (in terms of weight) that move really is.

    Average episode but well adapted.

    Meh middle part with the whole 31 chefs pudding, chiffon, and sanji.

    So that weird face of sanji from the manga was exactly animated..lol!!

    Katakuris replication of luffys moves was well done. So this one sided beginning of the fight has been respectable but nothing mind blowing.
    We have a two week break before seeing jimbei in action as a helmsman. Hopefully it gets animated decently.

    Finally the filler was fine and in the realm of possibilitys, Katakuri being able to copy Luffy's other G3 move made totally sense, unlike the nonsenscial floating/flying Soru.

    I can just agree, Toei really did a good job at adapting the manga panels.

    The craziest thing about this is Katakuri is just copying Luffy, using techniques he has never used before and overpowering Luffy with no effort.

    Very good episode when it came to the Katakuri-Luffy stuff. I thought the animation on both Elephant gun's was great. All the cake stuff ruined the pacing though.

    Very good episode, we see again the great speed of Katakuri and his power, Toei bring the feeling about Katakuri are better in speed/Power then Luffy in anime very good. Hope Chapter 884 get same good animation.^^

    I didnt care for the stuff with sanji and pudding in the manga so cant blame toei but really liked what they did with luffy vs katakuri much better than last episode maybe my favourite fight filler in one piece.

    Very nice episode : we can feel the power of Kata especially when he rose and did his gatling gun, the slow motion was well done !

    The only small complain is that Luffy only bled after the final gatling, he took the majority of the beating without bleeding , I know there is censorship etc but come on, I don't know how they will show Luffy after being a punching bag during hours.

    ... I don't understand why Toei tries to act like the western baby-treatment censorship... They really forgot how Aizama's face looked like after Nomu stomped his face to the ground.

    Katakuri power strenght is amazing but still he only use Luffy "moves" and not his own arsenal of Attacks.
    Later in anime we will see Power mochi Gatling, a attack who Knockdown Luffy for several seconds.

    Katakuri Awakening power+his Block Mochi are stronger then the Gear3 Gatling version of his own who was already stronger then G3 of Luffy in the anime. I have good hopes for chapter 884, they will do more for G4 Luffy vs Katakuri.

    One piece is not as brutal as My Hero Academia but even in the One piece manga Luffy was bleeding after the first Big G3. Here Toei decided to add even more big Kata attacks and Luffy's face was almost perfect it doen't make a lot of sense.

    Aizawa is a boss even with this face ^^.

    I guess that Katakuri change his fighting style according to his opponents.

    Was a nice episode.

    That Gatling of Katakuri against Luffy was more brutal than that Gatling of Luffy against Lucci lol.

    Felt cool to see Sanji's theme being played again. The atmosphere around the cooking is great. The way Sanji talked about cooking against time emphasised the importance of the cake even more.

    I love Katakuri's quote : "There will be no victory in your future !"
    That's a really badass boast.
