One Piece Chapter 1013 Review/Recap
Well, if there was ever any doubt that Big Mom was still going to throttle the Straw Hats, then that’s gone straight out the window. Not only does Oda show us that she’s still the enemy, but that any chance at changing brought on by Otama is non-existent. In addition, she also proves how cold and unforgiving she is to poor Zeus, as she finally discards the poor Homie.
Man, I feel really bad for Zeus!
Now thoroughly enraged by Ulti attacking Otama, Nami hits the Beast Pirate with everything she’s got! But even that is not enough to stop the dinosaur, and before long, she’s at Ulti’s mercy. That’s when Big Mom steps in and uses Hera and her other Homies to show off a new move straight from the Godzilla franchise.
No sooner has Big Mom dealt with Ulti, though, that she turns her attention to Nami and Usopp. At that moment, though, Zeus finally tracks down Big Mom, only to hear Napoleon and Prometheus bad mouth him as a fool and an idiot. To make matters worse, Big Mom decides she no longer needs Zeus. Thus, she lets Hera devour him to become stronger. Realizing it was a mistake to keep working for Big Mom, Zeus turns on his creator to buy Nami time to escape.
But it’s too late. Hera eats Zeus and gains all his power. However, before Big Mom can finish off the trio, Kid shows up with a massive amount of metal, ready for a rematch!
Meanwhile, on the roof, the battle has come to an end for the moment. Luffy has been seemingly defeated and is left plunging away from Onigashima, as Kaido admits he should’ve killed him when he had the chance.
Dude, I know that Zeus was a spineless coward that turned on Nami as soon as he found Big Mom again, but I feel bad for the guy. All he ever did was serve Big Mom faithfully, and his partners just bad-mouthed him like that! That little cloud Homie didn’t deserve to be taken out like that! Now more than ever, I want to see Big Mom go down for good! And if we’re lucky, maybe Zeus will somehow return before this fight is over.
However, the more immediate concern should be about Luffy. We didn’t see what happened, but my guess is that Luffy’s fatigue caught up to him, costing him the fight. Now he’s careening away from the island and the Alliance. But despite Kaido admitting he should’ve killed Luffy when he had the chance, he still makes a big mistake: he doesn’t finish the job.
Am I worried about Luffy right now? Yes, I am. He’s falling from high in the sky to the ocean below, meaning he’ll drown. Even if he doesn’t, though, Onigashima’s going to be hard to get back to. But I know that he’ll manage to do it, somehow. He’s Luffy; as long as he’s alive, he’s not going to give up. Kaido better watch his back, because round three is coming, and Luffy’s going to win this time!
I Give “Big Mom’s Anarchy” an emotional 3.8/5
