One Piece Episode 488: Useless Killings

FUCK YESSSSSSSS Screw censoring right now!!!!!!!!! I WAS HOPING HE’D SHOW UP DURING THIS EPISODE, OMG OMG OMG OMG IT’S SHAAAAAAAAAAAAAANKSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH I think I just went crazy

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!

This week’s episode made me happy :D.

Summary:Continuing along on the wave of trouble sent by the Marines, Law tells Buggy to hurry up and to put Luffy and Jimbei on his submarine so he can run away. Meanwhile, Marine ships start attacking them, and on the coast more Marines show up and kill the pirates one after the other. Blackbeard brings down the island even more using his newly-acquired Devil Fruit Power, splitting the sea into pieces and causing tsunamis reaching all the way to Sabaody Archipelago PSH! No big deal. The war from before now turns into a carnage, as the Marines decide to show the running Pirates what “justice” is, while the pirates desperately try to escape. Even if everyone is passed their original goal, everyone keeps fighting when the war should already be over. Coby, seeing all this, becomes really sad and angry, then runs over to the frozen sea and yells out to stop fighting, because they are wasting precious lives.

Coby is told by Akainu that all pirates should die and he’s about to get beaten down by him when all of sudden Akainu’s punch is stopped by a sword: Red-Haired Shanks has appeared.

Before I get into the actual review, let me say this: I FREAKING LOVE SHANKS!!!! He’s soooo damn badass and sweet-looking and he’s such a freaking cool pirate and WAAAAAAAAHHHHH I LOVE SHANKS WOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO! If you hadn’t realized it yet, I’ve been waiting for this episode for a while.

From what this episode told us, it seems like the war is about to end, because that’s basically what Shanks has come here for, to stop the war. I’m surprised Coby was actually useful in the end Well, he almost got his ass burnt off, but he was useful nonetheless. He felt everyone dying around him and really thought that he should bring about a stop to this war, and although what he did was absolutely insane and stupid, he tried and did it anyways, which was really brave of him He is, after all, a really good friend of Luffy, the most reckless and idealistic kid you can ever meet on the planet!. Apart from that the episode felt really short, and I’m surprised how short this review actually is when one of the most important plot points happened in here O.O.

K, seriously. Even if the episode is incredibly intense and kinda sad, how can I NOT LAUGH AT THIS FACE?!?! Come on!

Oh, and I don’t think I need to mention that this episode had a good cliffhanger, I think you can figure that out by yourself :D.

…Shaaaaaaaaaanks!
