'One Piece' Teases Luffy (Gear 5) vs. Lucci Rematch in New Promo Ahead of This Week's Episode!

One Piece‘s 1100th episode will be airing this week on Sunday, April 7, 2024. As always, the series will be available via Crunchyroll, but also via Netflix, which has also acquired the distribution rights to the series. And while the fact that the 1,100-episode milestone has been hit is certainly interesting and important, that is not the main reason why we are talking about this week’s episode, as you can imagine. Namely, this week’s episode is going to feature one of the most anticipated rematches in the whole series, as Gear 5 Luffy is going to fight against Rob Lucci on Egghead in one of the arc’s best fights.

The original fight between Luffy and Lucci was one of the series’ most epic clashes and is still dearly remembered by fans. At the time, the fight pushed Luffy beyond his limits and also provided us with the realization that Lucci was, indeed, one of his trickiest opponents ever. Now, in light of their significantly changed roles and circumstances, the much stronger Luffy is going against a much stronger Lucci.

And if you’re thinking that we are blowing this out of proportion and that the upcoming episode is just another one in the batch, think again, as even the producers think that we’re entering a crucial phase in the anime’s evolution. In order to hype everyone up, an official teaser promo video has been released and you can check it out here:

The episode will, as we have said, air this Sunday, April 7, and will be titled “Powers on a Different Level! Luffy vs. Lucci!”. This fight will show Luffy, in his Gear 5 form and his Awakened Devil Fruit form, fight Lucci, who has also managed to awaken his Devil Fruit. On top of that, Vegapunk is also going to reveal additional information about the Devil Fruits and their nature in general, so this promises to be a very exciting episode.

This is all we have for you here, as we don’t want to spoil the plot of the upcoming episode. But, despite that, be sure to keep following us for more information and updates related to One Piece.
