My fellow One Piece fans, I’ve been waiting for this day for almost four years now. It’s been a long and winding road for the Straw Hats to get to this moment, including some unwanted detours. Still, here we are, the moment when the war to take down Kaido and Big Mom begins! And as we see in this chapter, it’s apparent that Oda’s not pulling any punches. Wano descends into all-out war!
Did you guys know that Sword Art Online got a movie a few years ago? I’m not joking; there is, in fact, a Sword Art Online movie in subbed and dubbed format. Called Ordinal Scale, it took place in between the events of Seasons two and three of the anime, and is fully canon to the anime’s timeline. However, I never expected that it would play any factor in Alicization. Turns out I was wrong, because two of the characters from that film end up playing a small yet important role in this week’s episode.
By the way, the action this week is actually pretty good, and we see some of PoH’s twisted backstory.
