One Piece Episode 480: The Moment we Have All Been Waiting for Has Arrived!
This week is THE week. The one we have all been waiting for…
As Luffy runs down the path to Ace
Anyhow, Luffy has now made it to the scaffold!
Um…Yeah, so much for being overjoyed for about 5 seconds. Until Sengoku finally decides to act and to show that he does more than just look at Whitebeard and say “You will lose!”. In fact, he has this kind of devil fruit power that transforms him into a gigantic buddha that can basically destroy everything. Anyways, Luffy is about to open Ace’s Kairouseki handcuffs when Kizaru destroys the key! Omfg! No key? Now what? Of course, Mr. 3 shows up! He was apparently one of the executioners who got knocked down, and he got there because he has finally decided to help Luffy, just like Mr. 2 did in Impel Down. DAMN RIGHT! THESE CHARACTERS PROVE THEMSELVES USEFUL ONLY IN CRITICAL MOMENTS!
YES OMG I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THAT EPISODE FOR SUCH A LONG TIME OMFG!!!!!
Alright, now let’s talk about the first half of this episode before I go crazy. I’m glad they showed a little bit of plot between Garp and Luffy. We hadn’t seen much so far and showing this made us understand a bit more what bonds they had, how much Garp must have been deceived to be enemies with his grandson and all those family ties that would make us weep if it didn’t end up being a good thing in the end
in this instance, Luffy getting past Garp. It makes us understand why Garp fell and let Luffy go. Alright, it was totally anti-climatic I must admit because they made a big deal out of it, but hey, at least now we know a little more about Luffy’s past. It also gives us an idea as to why Luffy became so strong -_-‘ His grandfather’s a crazy maniac, that’s why.
Now, on to the second half. The one where Luffy finally rescues his brother. OMG! I was in a position where I couldn’t stand at the edge of my seat when I saw this and so could not stand at the edge of my seat, but if I could have, I would have. They really put a lot of suspense into this whole part of the episode and at least Sengoku tried his best to stop them. I would have been really deceived if he had just stayed there to do nothing, which he has been doing ever since this war started. I forgot I was watching One Piece though, and obviously these guys never let characters not take part in big fights!
Especially in this one… Oops, I might wanna shut up before I say too much. Anyways, now Ace is on the loose, all fired up literally, and he’s ready to KICK ASS.
Man, Luffy’s determination is amazing. He has one idea in mind, and he always manages to get to that idea, even if it sounds impossible to everyone else. This show really gives off a “never give up on your dreams” vibe, and it psyches me up much more than Naruto does XD No offense to Naruto fans, but I mean come on, fighting off the World Government for his brother and actually being successful?
So basically, this episode kicked ass. End of review.
