Episode Summary

Bursting Out! Merman Arlong Fearsome Attack from the Sea!
The battle between Luffy and Arlong continues and Arlong begins using his sharp teeth as a weapon by pulling them out and regrowing them at high speed. Luffy dodges most of the strikes but he is still bitten a few times. Arlong tries throwing himself at Luffy like a torpedo but finally Luffy drives him to the ground. When Arlong rises though, his eyes are changed to those of an enraged Sea King. Arlong draws a weapon called Kiribachi and the battle continues up into Nami's room.moreless

  • Dammit just fight Luffy >_

    While it is in Luffy's nature to often dick around during fights and come up with stupid ideas, in this particular episode you wished he would actually take a fight fully seriously for once. The previous episode ended with Luffy pounding the crap out of Arlong with a chain of attacks, and then it follows up with Luffy wanting to use Arlong's teeth like his own, using swords for like the first time in his life, and a bunch of other nuisances. To his credit he came up with some pretty cool attacks, such as his shield and net, and it at least ends on an interesting note.moreless
