One Piece is definitely putting the Straw Hats through the ringer as the Whole Cake Island arc has put them into a pinch with two halves of the Straw Hats dealing with equaly deadly things.

While the last episode focused on Luffy’s run from Big Mom, the most recent episode showed the other half of the Straw Hats as Brook and Chopper have to defend the Thousand Sunny from the invading Katakuri and Perospero.

When Chopper and Brook approach the Sunny in a submarine, they reveal themselves thinking that Luffy and the others already made it back. Unfortunately, it’s revealed to be Perospero and Katakuri, who had previously snuck onto the Sunny through the mirror in Nami’s room.Perospero gives them the option to flee, thinking Big Mom had successfully killed them with Zeus (but that was Nami), but Brook and Chopper coolly challenge them all to a fight in order to win the Sunny back. The two go on to defeat many of Big Mom’s soldiers, with Brook displaying all sorts of cool sword skills and even a return of his Soul King attack.

But the episode ends when Brook and Chopper eliminate all of the weaker Big Mom soldiers. This leaves only Katakuri and Perospero, setting up for an even tougher battle ahead for Brook and Chopper moving forward.

Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece first began serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump in 1997. It has been collected into 87 volumes, with a few chapters yet to be included. It has been a critical and commercial success worldwide with many of the volumes breaking printing records in Japan. The manga has even set a Guinness World Record for the most copies published for the same comic book by a single author, and is the best selling manga series worldwide with 430 million copies sold worldwide.

Eiichiro Oda also revealed some upcoming news for One Piece‘s future in a recent interview as well. Stating that he was about 80% done with the series at this pointwith the Wano arc, this might scare some fans a bit seeing how much more has been revealed about the series’ world, but it wouldn’t be wrong to infer that the ending will most likely still be years away.

The new live-action One Piece series also got some new information as it was revealed that the series will portray the Straw Hats’ adventures from the very beginning, and will take place in the East Blue. One Piece‘s anime series is currently in the middle of the “Whole Cake Island” arc and is now streaming on Crunchyroll and Funimation.
