    A fairly un-eventful episode. Next one should be better when we see fat ass Yokozuna get his fat ass kicked by Luffy/Zoro. :)

    Why did the anime gave Armament Haki to Batman? Did Oda approve this? They might give one to Urashima and the likes of Holdem, too.

    No idea. It seemed kinda silly that Luffy even remotely struggled against him, considering that Luffy's taken down some strong baddies. Even in his base form, Luffy should've been able to knock out Bat Dude with a single punch.

    @Seiryu @Jawahib @Marco Polo are you guys watching the anime? This episode/hell this arc and the way Haki has been treated has been fascinating so far especially if Oda really is involved in having them flesh things out that were packed into the panels densely, etc. what do you guys think about that? There’s a way to talk about this only up to this point, right? Like maybe this should go back to the believability thread that I abandoned? (Yeah I know I said I was gonna get back to that but well... things—life—happened, mea culpa).

    I was definitely disappointed that Luffy’s enraged punch had zero affect on the bat man. Absolutely unacceptable for someone “considered”
    As a 5th Yonko.

    And, when did the new user titles come
    out. (Yonko commander, captain, etc) looks cool.

    Nah, honestly I abandoned the anime mid-way through Zou; the animation quality was starting to be a little too much to handle. I've heard it's had a major upgrade since then so I've been meaning to get back to it, just haven't quite done it yet lol

    I need to catch up with it but I hear that people be mad about a Haki decision that was made this episode. Will post more once I’ve watched the episode.

    The new art style is really nice, it’s a huge upgrade on Zou/WCI. It keeps the same colourfulness but it’s not got that same “shiny” feel that a lot of the post-TS episodes have had (I don’t know the proper term for it).

    I know you’re not a Dragonball fan but the new style is similar to the one they used for the new Broly movie, which was incredible visually. Another similar reference would be Pokemon Sun and Moon - they go with a lighter, more cartoony feel and I think it works a lot better.

    The Wano Arc starts from Episode 892, by the way

    There’s a couple of reactions in the thread already but in case mine wasn’t clear from my post, it seems interesting to say the least that Batman has Haki. The possibility that Luffy wasn’t that angry exists also. There are other possible explanations for it like the fact that it’s shonen and you never start off at full power plus it’s a yonko’s crew so they’ll be more powerful than most and he’s a gifter so that might make him stronger? The triplets on WCI had Haki and weren’t easily knocked around. Luffy’s also hungry.

    Thanks for the tag. I think I'm caught up to episode 900, but yes, I'd bet the house that Oda is directly OK'ing the clarifications. I'm a little surprised we saw the sword haki (the effect where is seeps out of the sword anti-gravity) in an earlier episode.

    The red eye flash for kenbunshoku is a nice visual confirmation (I think Katakuri had some sort of glimmer when the first foresight scene was shown).

    Most of the people responding are manga readers, but furthering the original discussion necessitates discussing spoilers, so a legit continuation would have to switch over.

    But, I'm completely happy with the revisionist history (Jack is going to be different from the manga based on the recent data books). At least Oda and the team had more time to iron things out, and at least the finalized version seems befitting in all aspects.

    Reading the most recent comments, seems like I have to watch the episode since there's even more additions...or just spoil me since I'll still watch it regardless.

    Batman will protect Wano like Gotham no big feelings Luffy. He is trained by Raz Al Ghul after all.

    So I meant to come back to this but forgot until I saw this on Twitter. Here’s what the hubbub is about. Basically some amazing animation used in a manner that’s pretty questionable. https://twitter.com/OPSakugaTweets/status/1170712368445370368?s=20

    I'm not as angry with the decision as the people on Twitter. Luffy has the strength of an oversized human, but he's still not an oversized human. Luffy needs one of his gears to have his "normal" fighting potential. Plus, I think this has to do with the new "Numbers". We may have 300+ powerhouse SMILE users that contradict the weaklings originally shown. Oda's doing more revisionist history, but things look like the breadcrumbs will all match up perfectly.

    I hope that's what the link is referring to...
