「クマに起きた異変 イワさん怒りの一撃」 (Kuma ni Okita Ihen – Iwa-san Ikari no Ichigeki)

One Piece – 468

「激戦の連続! 能力者軍団VS能力者軍団」 (Gekisen no Renzoku! Nōryokusha Gundan VS Nōryokusha Gundan)”
Hard Battles, One After Another! Devil Fruit Eaters vs. Devil Fruit Eaters!”

So I start up OP 468, skip past the intro, and then the recap. Imagine my face when I noticed the recap was less than a minute long compared to last week’s almost 6 minutes.

「魔人の子孫! リトルオーズJr.驀進!」 (Majin no Shison! Ritoru Ōzu Junia Bakushin!)
“A Descendant of the Beast! Little Oars Jr. – Full Speed Ahead!”

One Piece – 463

「すべてを焼き尽くす!! 大将赤犬の能力!」 (Subete o Yakitsukusu!! Taishō Akainu no Chikara!)
“An All-Consuming Inferno!! Admiral Akainu’s Power!”

「決戦の幕開け! エースと白ひげの過去」 (Kessen no Makuake! Ēsu to Shirohige no Kako)
“The Beginning of the War! Ace and Whitebeard’s Past!”

With the war pretty much completely about him, much akin to Helen of Troy, what better time to finally learn about Ace’s past?

One Piece – 460

「巨大艦隊あらわる 襲来! 白ひげ海賊団」 (Kyodai Kantai Arawaru – Shūrai! Shirohige Kaizoku-dan)
“A Vast Fleet Appears! Here Come the Whitebeard Pirates!”

IF HE’S THE SON OF THE PIRATE KING, HE MUST BE EVIL! Ah, sheep of society, how little do you know. After last week’s “epic” reveal, the world is in total shock.

「仲間達の行方 革命軍と暴食の森の罠!」 (Nakama-tachi no Yukue – Kakumeigun to Bōshoku no Mori no Wana!)
“The Friends’ Whereabouts! Revolutionaries and the Gorging Forest’s Trap”

I went into this episode with much more interest than last episode, as Robin’s placement actually had some serious consequences, and we all know that serious consequences make a plot more exciting.
