    Great episode. I like that Overtaken played during Jimbei's speech. Also Jimbei's attack against Kaido's crew was done really well.

    I thought this was kind of a weak episode... but something tells me this was a sacrifice to give the animators more time to work on really astounding scenes in later episodes. Not every episode can be a sakuga fest nor they need to be.

    Oof, some of the drawing in this episode. Definitely a budget saver. XD

    OK, this is bugging me, didn't Momonosuke learn to fly as a dragon at some point? Why can't he just fly right off that bird, he's not being restrained? :P

    Drawing quality isn't relative to any sort of budget at all

    Yeah I know, only been following these discussions for 16 years, just a bad joke.

    Man, it’s taking a while to travel to Onigashima. The manga chapters here flew by comparison. I’m back and forth on my excitement for the war part of this arc. On one hand, we know they’ll feed us with great animation here and there. On the other hand, half-a-chapter episodes really only work well when they have a good bit of dialogue and smart implied filler. I don’t see that happening here. The war chapters are mostly action, which is adapted too quickly, and there arent as much opportunities for implied filler. The “implied” filler here is mostly additional fighting.

    My obvious prediction here: we’re going to see a *lot* of filler lackey fights every episode.

    Probably ~75% of this arc has been decently paced because of the high amount of dialogue and plot in this arc. That’s about to drop away a bit.

    Yeah we will get a lot of fighting between the samurai and kaido’s goons which on one hand gonna slow the pacing but on the other hand give a sense of how epic this showdown really is. As long as the art and animation maintains the current standard, I’m happy.

    I mean... Has Oda not been skimming the fights a lot in here? Heck, did we even get
    Spoiler:
    a proper Kanjuro fight? Because it felt to me like they just jumped from "Kiku is about to fight him" to "Kiku has won" and then when he later turned out to be Not Quite Dead we got "Kiku is about to fight him again" and then we really only saw the end of the fight.
    In theory, this to me feels like prime filler material. Though I feel like if that happens the overall animation quality might take a hit because we have yet to see any stretches of continuous action this long in Wano.
