Drunk Roger and young Crocus sound like completely different people. Then again, so do young Buggy and Shanks.
These Roger Pirate color schemes, man. Sunbell looking more of a generic fishman with the blue skin. Spencer now easily more confused for a girl. Bankuro looking like a sheep, probably just a costume. Seagull "Guns" Nozdon with the minihawk that goes all the way down to his nose?? And Erio might be Buggy's father
Great view of Hakumai. Orochi's fleet has some lovely ships too.
Fire Festival getting its own OST is a very nice touch
Kiku doesn't look so devil-ish when it turns out the armor is white and gold.
Kin'emon yelling at the smail in desperation
The Strawhat Kabuto armors look even better in the anime. That Luffy in red and Brook in grey. Such a shame they threw them away.
Oh yeah...we still don't know what happened at the end of WCI arc.
Orochi surrounded by horned beast babes. This man living the life.
Quite impressed with that first half, then quality declined in the second half. Great job bringing the Fire Festival to life with the OST, lighting and colors, even adding extra scenes like kids playing games or food being prepared to further build it up the atmosphere. Then the contrast with how drab, colorless, utterly hopeless the Scabbards' scenario is. The rain itself looked like black ink pouring down. The episode bookends nicely with the party on Roger's ship, transition to Orochi's celebration and the Fire Festival, then the drama starts filling in and you finish with the current perilous situation.
Looks like Oden's flashback starts halfway through next episode. Excited to see if they give him own theme, how Oden's Wano contrasts to the current Wano, how the VA pulls off teenage Oden, and that cold opening that makes Oden look like an evil barbarian.
