    Was expecting the song to be like BM's.

    Eh, looks like the episode ended about where I expected (and hoped it wouldn't) based on the magazine preview: IE on the exact same cliffhanger as the previous one's. Well the body of the episode should be fun, at least, and what's in the preview looks fun and decently-animated too.

    Well we did see him colored already on the Vol. 87 cover.

    His outfit looks better without the jacket, IMO.

    I find it hilarious how toei sexualizes everything to the detriment of regular scenes but tones down the actual fanservice by like 90%

    This was a fine episode. A little bit of calm and relaxation before what's coming. Nothing to write home about, but nothing bad either.
    I do like how they're handling the buildup, though. Every episode cranks up the tension of the wedding by introducing a new son, which is smart. Even Streussen's little intro song (though awkwardly placed in there) was cute.

    Maaaaaaybe? There aren't really enough closeups of the main cast to be sure, but some of the shading on Capone does remind me of Shingo Fujisaki.

    This was surprisingly solid for a Ueda and Shingaki episode and the key animators list being mainly comprised of Toei Phils animators makes me excited for the staff we'll see during the Tea Party on Japan's side

    I am not even sure that it's supposed to be a gag, but the Big Mom officers opening the gate running gag is hilarious.

    I don't know if I am starting to adapt to the anime pacing, but for once I was not annoyed by how much they slow the scenes down (although I was still bothered by the "teeth growing/skull healing" that killed the joke instead of directly jumping from "drinking milk" to "fully healed reaction" - I am very picky with comedy timing).
    Overall I thought it was good!

    I wish next episode they do a lackluster version of the gate scene with Compote doing nothing and waiting for them to open it.

    Streusen's song was fun. The tidbit with the Germa robot was a nice addition as well.

    Or better yet, have Smoothie try and fail miserably. But knowing her miserable character, she wouldn't even attempt to Open the gate.
    HOW COME LUFFY NEVER KILLS AN ENEMY?
    ODA:ITS BECAUSE IN THAT ERA EVERYONE USES THEIR LIVES TO FIGHT FOR THEIR DREAMS. FOR AN ENEMY WHEN THEIR DREAM HAS BEEN SHATTERED,IT IS AS PAINFUL AS DEATH,I BELIEVE FOR A PIRATE NOT TO KILL AN ENEMY , IT'S GIVING THEM A SECOND CHANCE TO FIGHT FOR THEIR DREAMS.

    That's so funny that I'm 100% convinced they'll never do it.

    This is a Smoothie hate-free zone, please take your impotent hatred of my big daughter somewhere else.

    She's also already been introduced, so

    This was an episode that could have easily been a drag but wasn't. Is "Hope" gonna play after the recap now? Cause the recap was pretty long but it coming first makes it feel less so. I like the BM pirates songs and hope the anime adds more - *wishes for Nippon Judan 2 intensify*

    So...
    • Katakuri waits patiently and politely for the door to be opened.
    • Daifuku is impatient and opens the door himself.
    • Oven just walks right through the door because he's an asshole.
    Since she's the last one to be unshaded in the opening, is Compote going to come by and simply enter the castle without any door-opening powers as there's no point to it anymore?
    Spoiler:
    Because it certainly doesn't look like she's going to be seeing any action at this point in the manga!
    The episode was fun. Could've been more fun with a better director behind the wheel though. Shingaki was shockingly well-behaved during the extended bath scene with the girls, and it was obvious that he drew all the shots with Nami and Carrot in them himself; consequently that was the best-looking material he's put out since his Punk Hazard days lol. Though why he's been drawing Jimbei with that weird scowling lockjaw expression I don't know. I don't remember that from Fishman Island and prior!

    Bege's new music track at the start was a nice treat (Come on, new OST release, you know you wanna!) and I guess cold opens are going to be a thing going forward now? Bit of a pain for those who skip openings I suppose, but I've never been one of them.

    Finally I noticed that the seating arrangement at the meeting is completely enclosed. So did everyone have to, like, clamber over the couch backs to take up their seats, Bege included?
