In the latest chapter, One Piece fans were surprised with Luffy’s new strength. Not only possessing a Mythical Zoan-type devil fruit that has awakened and achieved Gear 5 status, Luffy now also has an extremely powerful recovery ability. Most recently in One Piece chapter 1045, the captain of the Straw Hat Pirates had a very strong show for Kaido and turned this Yonko into a “Four Clown”.
More specifically, in the last One Piece chapter 1045, Luffy used the legendary Gear 2 pose to activate Gear 5. If we calculate the timeskip time from 2010 to now, it has been more than 10 years since this pose has been new. Reappear. More specifically, in One Piece chapter 387, Luffy said “All my skills have gone to another level.” This sentence also coincides with the name One Piece chapter 1045 which is “Next Level”.
As we all know, Gear 2 first appeared in One Piece chapter 387, opening the concept of “Gear” of Luffy, bringing the strength of the Straw Hat captain to a new level. After the timeskip, Luffy removed the superfluous movement and only needed to stretch his arms to activate Gear 2, so this pose no longer appears. During CP9’s battle with Blueno, Luffy surprised the agent with his newfound powers.
By reusing Gear 2 pose after 10 years of absence from the battle with Kaido, we can see that Luffy is still on his way as all of his skills have now taken a level up. other. Indeed, Oda was very intentional when using the Gear 2 image to use when Luffy activated Gear 5 and attacked Kaido.
Obviously, Oda himself still creates an extremely tight storyline, where the seemingly smallest details are strung together and become extremely meaningful. No one expected that in the battle between Luffy and Kaido, the image of Gear 2 was recreated in Gear 5 when now Wano’s Luffy was stronger than Luffy when Gear 2 appeared too much.
What do you think about the fact that after 10 years, Luffy’s ready-to-go Gear 2 stance reappears in One Piece? Please leave your comments!
