    This says 830PM EST. Does that mean the Crunchyroll episode should be out now, or is that the Japanese release? If the latter, when will it be out on Crunchyroll?

    It should drop on Crunchyroll in about a half hour I think? The time there's the Japanese airtime converted to my timezone and it's largely a relic from when livestream links were being regularly posted here in the pre-simulcast days

    Looks like the staff called uncle and are rendering Kid's giant metal trash arms with CG. For the best, IMO, since even in Stampede they had to take shortcuts and the animators will already have more than enough on their plate to animate as-is. They actually look pretty well-integrated too, thankfully.

    Sadly, we are back to the old eyecatchers..

    I hope we’re getting new one soon in the raid.

    Man, I know it's a small thing, but I really miss the eyecatchers for all the crew. It'll be an effing shame if they never come back, or worse, if we don't get one for any potential future crewmates.

    I agree. I know it's cheaper to not have to animate an eye catcher for the growing list of crew members, but still.

    Now this was a nicely-animated episode. Sure, plenty of flashback padding. But they made it count where it mattered. That traitor's reveal, man oh man, I've been waiting a long time for that moment, and it delivered. The way the droplets showing his acting face disintegrated was pretty nice, but that smile... Ooh, gave me chills! Brilliant stuff on the imagery front.

    The padded conversations, though? Eh, I could have lived without the extra Kin blaming, and the two times someone agreed with Kiku when it was just once before, but most of it worked to give everyone something to say. It was really the scene of Shinobu and Momo getting ambushed that irked me. I thought it was good to see how Shinobu was ambushed, but it seemed farfetched that they could see what was happing in that boat in the storm from that far away, and that they knew the one behind them was a traitor before he struck. It really made the situation less a matter of being taken by surprise and more like a slow response, which I wouldn't expect from a ninja.

    Still, a major improvement from last week. We've actually been watching every week, but I haven't thought to comment much before now. One earlier anime-added thing I'll say I loved was the death scene of Toki, with the moon reflected in that pool of blood. It was brilliant imagery, and I do think on the whole that Wano has really stepped up the game, especially D'ART's output. Madillo Man, that was something else...

    I still think Kanjuro suddenly flipping a switch to "It was me all along, Austin!" is silly, but I figured it would be good fun to hear Takumi Yamazaki deliver that monologue and sure enough it was worth the wait. Hosoda can be a rather hot/cold director but this was one of his "hot" episodes and his choice of Stampede tracks were very fitting and effective. I don't mind us going back to the old eyecatches as long as the rest of the crew finally get their due, just like how we originally had to wait until the end of Water 7 for the non-Luffy Straw Hats to get theirs' after the HD switch.

    My complaint with this episode had to do with the sound mixing. Maybe it was just me, but the rustle of the falling rain just felt like it was too loud and was diminishing the music and dialogue.

    To be honest, I think in terms of direction this was a pretty weak episode overall. Loads and loads of flashbacks presented in a really straightforward manner.

    Despite that, the episode was still watchable. Massive downgrade from last week.

    The art was nice.

    The NEP makes it seem next episode will have some great stuff.
