The fuck was this shit? I withheld judgement last episode because I hoped that the finisher for Franky's fight would be moved to an episode with higher budget, so at least that bit would look good, but nope, it looked as bad as the last episode and it doesnt even feel like a finisher now. Yamato didnt look much better either, they kept the camera in angles where they could hide the actual fighting, giving us only bits of movement and the sound of the clashes, and they didnt even show the clash of blasts breaths, good lord. Only reason I dont give this episode a 0 is because I liked Yamato pulling some Aokiji shit with those icicles(even though they didnt even hit Kaido), the OST that played during that scene(I wonder if its new) and the Robin scene, though it was 90% filler and with barely any animation, but it still looked ok and was a bit of a tear jerker
