First I was hoping that Luffy wouldn't end up being able to see into the future on Katakuri's level, since it was established that it takes years of Observation Haki training to actually see into future. As Katakuri explained his reason for killing Jigra, he also reminded Bege of his rank as a Rook. Without her, this dimension does not exist. Funny how plot works both ways. He acted similarly when Luffy attacked Brûlée, protecting her without hesitation. Katakuri was the main problem. The fight is really spectacular, since for the most part Kata was on top of Luffy and only in moment of confusion he got hit.
The attack hits Katakuri in the face. Luffy getting hit by Power Mochi. Before I start I want to let you all know that this post contains spoilers from Whole Cake Island if you are not up-to-date until 850 stop reading and watch the episodes you are missing. This all was not in Luffy's aresenal anyway, 10 min, in an open area, outside Mirror world, would have ended in the same freaking shit, few hits on Luffy but not going down, and he gets then his haki back and battle continues, ending in same result! Oda definitely needs to take a thing or 2 from series like HxH, Yu Yu Hakusho, etc. Katakuri realized Bege's betrayal when he attempted to shoot him but he was unharmed. However, this form is a lot less predictable than Boundman. It was one of the best fights since the start of the time-skip.
Let me know about your thoughts on Luffy vs Katakuri. Currently, the series is exploring the 'Whole Cake Island' arc which has pit Monkey D. One Piece chapter 895 saw Luffy go Snakeman for the first time against Charlotte Katakuri. That means the anime will jump in and out of the fight for a long time still. Did Luffy just had nore stamina than Katakuri? Sanji Retrieval Team Katakuri made an enemy out of the Straw Hats when he attempted to kill Sanji himself after he foresaw Pudding's failure in her task and Sanji dodging the priest's shot.
He was also worried at the thought of Luffy achieving his level of Haki and tried his best to finish the fight quickly. Katakuri is unable to accept anybody seeing what his mouth looks like to the point he refuses to let anyone live after seeing it out of fear of the something similar happening to his family again. Did you all notice that Luffy's fist has changed? Katakuri is just better, and stronger. Thirdly, I didn't want Luffy's Snakeman transformation to turn the fight into a one sided beat down. Luffy against Big Mom and her even bigger crew.
Unfortunately, the day such expectations were deflated is today, the day Katakuri will be defeated. Then you've got Katakuri's sudden swap from terminator mode and hunting down Luffy in order to prevent him from harming his family, to suddenly caring about a 'manly duel'. I don't know, I loved the fight. Though it did say much,there is still stuff that coulf have been done with him,but never was. However, when Katakuri caught Flampe's interruption, he went to her and angrily berated her for her meddling actions after stabbing himself with his trident and revealing his full face to her. In the anime, he wore a dark cloak when arriving at the Whole Cake Chateau.
As he laid beaten, Luffy showed some respect to his downed adversary by covering his mouth with his extra hat before leaving. One Piece Episode 861, which is currently available at , featured the continuation of the battle between Strawhat Pirates captain Monkey D. Katakuri swings out a mochi arm covered in flaming Busoshoku Haki and spikes which he calls Diced Mochi. His gear 4 weakness from a week ago was gone and on to of that he got future sight just like that. Katakuri was wondering why Luffy chose to go back to the Mirror World instead of escaping and reuniting with his friends.
Katakuri has been a narrative mess and it didn't look good either. It had impact, was action-packed, a lot of character Development for each side, power boost for Luffy, relatable, each side was respecting the other. This was seen again when he angrily cast Luffy's successful attack on him as a fluke and boasted about his powers and being superior to Luffy's. Now obviously jack is a zoan possibly awakened which would give him a boost in endurance but if jack can go on fighting the dukes for 5 days, it shouldn't be unthinkable for Luffy to do something similar. Luffy is rubber all the way through and always will be, same with katakuri as mochi. He has a tendency to foresee what other people say and respond to them before they actually talk. Let us take note of the fact that Katakuri did not finish off Luffy when he had the chance to, on multiple occasions.
Luffy's endurance skyrocketed in comparison to Dressrosa 4. So, she had to stay close to Katakuri 5- It was shown and proved how much she cares for Katakuri! This however made her lose all respect for him and she and her subordinates cruelly mocked and ridiculed him for his pelican eel mouth. There are great episodes, and then there are weak ones. She meddled in his fight with Luffy, wanting to preserve her brother's perfect status and become his favorite little sister. Luffy Vs Katakuri is a long fight nonetheless and it will be approximately 10-13 episodes long depending upon how much stuff will be covered in 1 episode. Recently, fans got their very first taste of Luffy v Katakuri in the anime.
Because I saw no real reason dogtooth lost, snakeman be damned. Oda even went out of his way to have Luffy take a barrage of unguarded attacks from Bellamy, to achieve that effect. Having fought a sweet commander for over 11 hours, being beat up by sanji, and then going on to fight the enraged army. I doubt if Luffy can win this battle. I think that this was one of the best fights in One Piece since the time skip.
I mean, it wasn't even a real fight half of the time. Oda gets a pass because he does it so rarely. Katakuri is definitely a beast. People defending that Katakuri could've killed Luffy countless times makes me think that they completely missed the whole point. Katekuri beat him repeatedly for hours with out much consequence.
