Hey everyone! Today, I want to talk about One Piece Chapter 891. Before I begin, I want to let you all know that this post contains major spoilers from the chapter. The chapter is out already, and if you haven’t read it yet, I suggest that you do so. If you haven’t read the chapter, then please continue at your own risk. With that out of the way, let’s begin.
One Piece resume after a two week break, and chapter 891 amazed fans. This week, we finally got a glimpse at Katakuri’s battle against Monkey D. Luffy. It has been a while since we last saw them fight. In chapter 889, we saw Luffy going back into the Mirror World. In this chapter, the finally resumed their fight. Monkey D. Luffy abandoned his fight for a while in order to regain Haki.
As you all know, Gear 4th has a time limit. Once Luffy is out of Haki, he cannot maintain this form anymore, and that’s why he needs to take cover for about 10 minutes. Once his Haki returns, you would expect him to ho back into Gear 4th, and try to overpower Katakuri. But surprisingly, that’s not what he’s done. Instead, he is trying to beat Katakuri at his own game.
What Luffy is trying to do is to see future just like Katakuri himself. Katakuri has developed this technique after years of practice. Surprisingly, in One Piece chapter 891, Luffy actually did it. I’ll be honest, I didn’t think he would be able to pull it off. Monkey D. Luffy can now see into the future. But there is a catch, and something I’m sure not many noticed.
Luffy cannot actually look into the future consistently. Katakuri himself mentioned that he is doing it inconsistently. When they fought, Luffy saw the same future that Katakuri saw, and he was able to match his Power Mochi wth Elephant Gun. But, Luffy wasn’t able to foresee the incoming kick that Katakuri delivered. This means that he cannot see the future like Katakuri, and also that the during for which he can see the future is lesser than Katakuri.
We know that Katakuri can see a future of about 5-6 seconds, or maybe a little more. In Luffy’s case, it is probably going to be 2-3 seconds, and there’s no guarantee that he will be able to see it in the first place. I like this a lot, because I don’t want Luffy to grow suddenly. Future sight is a huge power up. I think it is something that Luffy should learn, and then slowly develop in a fight. By Wano, he should be able to see slightly into the future on a regular basis, but right now, he can’t do much. What do you think about his Observation Haki?
Monkey D. Luffy Just Figured Out A Way To Beat Katakuri
Monkey D Luffy vs Katakuri has been going on for a long time in the Mirror World now. It began about 10 chapters ago, and we even had some breaks in between. Back in Chapter 889, we saw that Luffy was preparing to go back into the mirror world, and a couple of chapters later, he was finally there.
Luffy was originally out to regain his Haki which he had lost after extensively using Gear 4th against Charlotte Katakuri. But this time, surprisingly, he didn’t go for Gear 4th. Rather, he decided to do something unprecedented. He decided to try and look into the future just like Katakuri himself.
Luffy is not an Observation Haki specialist. He cannot use it as well as many other characters can do. But with enough training, I think he can actually pull it off. That’s the way Oda is intending for it to happen, it seems. So, how can Katakuri be defeated? The biggest issue in defeating Charlotte Katakuri is his Observation Haki. You cannot do anything against him, because he will read you like a book.
This is what Katakuri said himself. But, if you do want to beat him, there are only two things you can do. Either distract him, so he cannot see the future, or see the same future that Katakuri does. So in order to beat Katakuri, all Luffy needs to do is to see the same future that Katakuri sees.
The only way to do that is for Luffy to improve his Observation Haki. We saw that he was able to see glimpses of the future in this chapter.
