It has been a long wait for the new episodes of One Piece but they have been well worth the wait. This was proven yet again by the One Piece Episode 1015 reaction as they finally adapted the highly anticipated "Roof Piece" from the manga.
Not surprisingly, fans have caused the anime to trend as they declare the latest episode as the best one in the franchise so far!
One Piece Episode 1015 adapted the latter half of the One Piece manga's Chapter 1000 which has long been believed to be the best part of Eiichiro Oda's work. In the episode, fans finally got to see Luffy go into Gear 3 during his fight against Kaidou.
The episode also featured Luffy's new attack Gomu Gomu no Red Roc, effectively slamming Kaidou into the ground and causing him to bleed. Once again, Luffy declares that he is the man who will be the King of Pirates.
It all made for one stunning episode and fans can't help but rave about One Piece Episode 1015.
One Piece Episode 1015 Reaction
Fans were also quick to praise Megumi Ishitani for her amazing direction in One Piece Episode 1015. Ishatani had previously worked on Episodes 957 and 982 but people believe that Episode 1015 is her best one yet.
One Piece Episode 1015 was originally expected to premiere last month but production on the episode had to be pushed back due to the Toei Animation hack earlier in March. The anime, along with many others, were forced to go into an extended hiatus. Luckily, One Piece resumed broadcast earlier in April and the new episodes proved that they were well worth the wait.
Fans can look forward to a new special episode next week. Although details about the new episode have not yet been revealed, it will be broadcast on May 1. One Piece Episode 1016 is titled Battle of Monsters! Three Captains Stubborn to Each Other ("Kaibutsu Kessen! Ijihariau San Sencho") and will air on May 8, 2022.
