One Piece Chapter 1011 Review/Recap
Have you ever heard of the trope “even evil has standards?” It’s a very popular trope created for a sole purpose. And that purpose is to show that if even the villains are disgusted by something, then you know that it’s bad! And in this case, it’s Big Mom who shows us that even evil has standards.
On the roof of Onigashima, Kid and Killer are dismayed to see that Big Mom’s alive and headed their way. Worse, she reveals that she just made a new Homie, Hera. Hera’s a Homie made from actual lightning, and Big Mom wastes no time in using her power to send the two into the skull dome. That’s when their luck gets even worse as they’re confronted by Hawkins. Killer stays behind to face his fellow Supernova while Kid goes to find Big Mom. Meanwhile, with everyone else having left the dome, Kaido and Luffy resume their fight on much more even terms.
Down below, Usopp, Nami, and Tama are still running from the wrath of Page One. They’re throwing everything they have at the freak, but he just shrugs it off.
Just when they’re on the ropes, Big Mom herself shows up! Fortunately, she remembers Tama from when she helped her before and thanks her for the kindness she showed her. However, when she learns that Kaido’s men burned down Leftover Town, she becomes enraged. As a result, she declares that even in the world of pirates, people still have standards, and attacks Page One. Much to everyone’s shock. Even evil has standards.
Holy cow, you guys. I wasn’t expecting this turn of events. Like, at all! I actually think that I forgot about the fact that Big Mom got amnesia or that she befriended Tama and the people of Leftover Town. I had thought that after she got her memory back, she stopped caring about them. But I guess I was wrong. Even someone as evil as Big Mom can have standards in the end.
I’m not going to say that Big Mom’s an ally just yet, though. She’s not going to forgive Luffy for all the trouble he’s caused her. Best case scenario, she’s now a wildcard in the fight for Onigashima. And given how many wildcards are already in play, that’s saying something!
It’s a shame that the manga’s on break again next week, but I’d take that over Oda letting his health deteriorate. That man’s a global treasure and deserves as many breaks as he wants. As for me, I can’t wait to see what happens next in One Piece. and for the anime to reach the raid!
I Give “Anko Standards” a 3/5
