    Great episode. I really like the music that was played when they entered Onigashima. It really give me, Bowser's Castle vibes.

    The Kidd pirate crew laughing to support Killer was both cute and terribly sad.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Real tough to follow up that last episode, eh? A few really great compositions particularly in the first half of this episode, but when introducing a new location, I really like to understand the character blocking and area, and I feel like there were too many closeups to properly understand the space. I see things that are in the space, but have no idea where they are in relation to the characters and the sea/boats. Also, there were a handful of reused shots and there wasn’t much animation this episode. Covered seemingly little content, too. I’m giving this week to the manga, particularly the entrance spread that Oda nailed so well. The anime version of that page was pretty, but not quite as insanely detailed and alive.

    Well, while it surely was a hard task to follow last week's, the fact a half-Deguchi episode is allowed to look this good is proof of how far we've come.

    Last week I commented on how spectacular the show's highs have gotten...

    This week we basically see what the show's current lows are like. And... it's honestly still plenty serviceable? Nothing particularly impressive but still fairly decent.

    Besides the pacing and lack of overall storyline progression in this episode, I still found it to be visually interesting to look at. I think the storyboard was great, and the characters looked good also. I really liked Law's submarine descending beneath the water.

    I loved this episode, it did its job and shows the show wont be a sakugafest all the time. I dont know why people hate sakuga but they do so this episode goes to them I guess.
