One Piece fans are on the edge of their seats as the highly anticipated Gear 5 reveal draws closer. This upcoming moment has been likened to Goku’s Ultra Instinct in Dragon Ball Super, both in terms of excitement and its potential impact on the plot. The Wano Arc has already provided some of the series’ best moments, with Toei elevating the animation and storytelling to new heights.
The excitement surrounding Gear 5 stems from the episode 1070 preview, where Luffy appears battered and defeated against Kaido, leaving fans anxious for his well-being. However, those familiar with the One Piece manga know that this is just a setup for a thrilling twist. As the true nature of Luffy’s devil fruit, the Gomu Gomu No Mi, is unveiled by a member of CP9, the tables turn dramatically, paving the way for Luffy to attain the next power level – Gear 5.
In the preview, the CP9 member is seen having a crucial monologue, presumably reflecting on the true potential of Luffy’s Devil Fruit, setting the stage for the long-awaited revelation. The upcoming episode could mark the moment when Luffy achieves Gear 5, unleashing a formidable power that could change the tide of the battle with Kaido.
Drawing parallels to Goku’s Ultra Instinct awakening, where he overcame adversity and mastered the powerful technique, Luffy’s Gear 5 is expected to be his own Ultra Instinct moment in the One Piece universe. The impact of this reveal is predicted to be monumental, potentially rivaling or even surpassing the significance of Goku’s Ultra Instinct transformation in the Dragon Ball community.
As the excitement builds for these iconic moments, fans eagerly await the episode that could redefine the course of the Wano Arc and solidify Luffy’s status as a formidable force in the world of One Piece. Whether it lives up to the hype or exceeds expectations, Gear 5 is set to leave an indelible mark on the hearts of fans and the legacy of this epic series.
