One Piece Episode 1071 Recap
The episode picks up where it left off, with Luffy in the midst of transforming and Zunisha announcing to Momonosuke that JoyBoy is back. Lightning shoots out of Luffy’s body, and his chest is pounding. Surprisingly, Luffy gets up and realizes he’s still alive. Overwhelmed with happiness, he starts laughing and jumping up and down. The ground bounces like rubber, and his body becomes super elastic.
The scene shifts to the Gorosei, who discuss their long hunt for the Gum Gum Fruit, spanning over 800 years but never getting the chance. They also reveal the other name of the fruit: Human Human Fruit Model: Nika. The previous wielder of the fruit was a god known as Nika The Sun God, or the Liberation Warrior, who fought with freedom and absolute strength.
Luffy causes a commotion, and the other StrawHats hear him, realizing he’s not dead, which brings them joy. Using his Conquerors Haki, Luffy knocks out the Animal Pirates and pulls Kaido out of the Main Floor and back outside. He dominates Kaido while toying around with him. The animation in the episode is extremely goofy and cartoonish, adding to the appeal of Gear 5.
Luffy now possesses the power to turn objects into rubber. He reflects a Blast Breath back at Kaido, giving him a taste of his own medicine. Kaido is thrilled to have the chance to properly defeat Luffy, and Luffy is equally excited for the confrontation.
The episode concludes with Luffy and Kaido staring each other down, ready to fight.
