One Piece anime’s latest episode number was 1069, and it saw the inevitable happen, which is Luffy’s defeat by Kaido’s hand. The latest episode of the series was one of the most amazing episodes as Luffy was on the last breath of his Gear 4, switching its application to keep up with Kaido’s drunkness and his unavoidable attacks.
As Kaido keeps attacking him and Luffy does not intend to give up, in his last shot, followed by the same attack, Luffy is determined to either lose or defeat Kaido. As both were getting close to each other with their attacks, an unexpected interference by a member of CP0 ruined the battle, which did not let Luffy’s attack commence resulting in Luffy being hit by Kaido’s attack at full power.
Kaido’s expression for the latest spoke it all as he was displeased and did not want this battle to come to an end like this. However, is it really the end? Well, as fans know that something big is about to happen, and that is Luffy’s new Gear 5 appearance and the awakening of his devil fruit. Thus, after Luffy finally being defeated, fans await the epic transformation that is Luffy’s gear 5.
With so many things going around all over the place in the anime, fans wonder what is an exact episode that will showcase Luffy’s use of Gear 5, and we are here to provide the information for all the questions about Luffy’s Gear 5 and its use. With that being said, let us determine when we will start seeing Luffy’s Gear Five transformation and its uses.
What Episode Luffy Uses Gear 5?
The upcoming One Piece episode is now the most anticipated episode of the anime fans might see the appearance of Gear 5 Luffy. However, the upcoming One Piece Episode 1070 is indeed not going to be the episode that will see the transformation of Luffy’s Gear and it uses. However, it will be the episode that will commence at the beginning of Luffy’s gear five.
Luffy’s Gear Five, as mentioned earlier, is indeed going to be one of the epic transformations of the anime, and when Luffy uses its abilities, it will bring joy to the viewer’s face as the author of One Piece has intended. Therefore, due to all the reasons mentioned above, Luffy will use the Gear 5 in One Piece Episode 1071.
Whereas, for the upcoming episode, we will see the narrator announcing the winner of the battle that is Kaido, who is pissed about having the epic battle interrupted by a CP0 member and will surely kill him. As Kaido rampages, he enters the lower floor of the battle announcing Luffy’s death and making a huge commotion of the announcement.
While all hope will be lost by this announcement, Yamato and Momonosuke might be the only ones currently who could take Kaido for a while.
However, if Momonosuke gets out of the way, then it will make the island hit the flower sooner, resulting in the deaths of thousands. Thus, after all, hope seems lost, and Luffy will awaken at the end of the episode following Zunesha’s announcement that Joy Boy has returned.
Then, One Piece Episode 1071 will see the appearance of Luffy Gear 5 and its uses for the first time in the anime, and it will make one of the best episodes of the series indeed. But when will the said episode release exactly, you ask? Check out the details for it below.
