And thus the great battle continues to end all the great battles.
In the first half of the episode, the Worst Generation throws everything they own at Big Mom, the shores of Onigashima and into the ocean, while also trying to stop her various animated companions from saving her. It sounds silly when you say it out loud but it’s actually the whole point of view – and it’s totally understandable. Why fight two emperors of the sea when you could fight instead of just one?
It’s strange to think about, but Devil Fruits’ weakness is rarely a significant aspect of the story. Sure, it’s never forgotten as far as plot or abilities go, but for a series that takes place almost entirely around water, it’s rare that characters who drown to their deaths come across in battle. . In fact, I think you could make an argument that it would be far more difficult to completely kill an opponent in a fight between extremely powerful Devil Fruit users and to knock them off their ship and into the water Smash Bros. style will be more efficient. ,
Joe… what our lucky hero is doing here: aiming to knock out that big ring. Sadly, it doesn’t work out and Big Mom is soon back on her way.
The second half of the episode focuses on Zorro trying to stop Kaido from giving Luffy the ol’ coup de grace while he is held out. This gives us the return of Demon Asura’s Strike, one of my favorite Zoro abilities. What it is, twenty years after we’ve last seen it and we still haven’t got much in the way of an explanation as to what it is. Although shocking to Zoro, this one major attack doesn’t win him the fight immediately. But, it actually looks great in Vano fashion and re-establishes Luffy’s triumphant rise which is a nice bonus if nothing else.
So yes, more vano means more grand fights and it doesn’t seem like it will end anytime soon. See you next week for more.
