Episode Summary

Luffy in Trouble! Mermen VS Luffy Pirates!
Luffy attacks Arlong and punches him into a wall. Arlong is angry but his other mermen calm him down. Hachi calls the sea bull Mohmoo but when it arrives and sees Luffy and Sanji. It chickens out and turns to leave. Arlong's dangerous voice pulls it back, but not for long as Luffy sends it flying. The technique leaves Luffy trapped with his feet in the ground however and Arlong takes the opportunity to throw Luffy with the rock on his feet into the water calling it a game to see if they can rescue him before he drowns.moreless

  • Usopp's first big fight...which he spends a lot of the time running.

    Much like how One Piece has previously delivered, excellent, spontaneous, funny, and exciting all of the same time. Seeing Luffy dimwittedely screw his legs into the cement with no plan to break out of it was pretty funny, but it is later used as a device for Arlong to make it impossible for him to escape after throwing him in the sea. A lot of the episode consisted of Luffy destroying the random grunts and the match ups of the fighters; Sanji gets Kuroobi, Usopp Chew, Zoro Hatchan, and of course Luffy Arlong. The match ups weren't just randomly selected though, a (short) history is behind them, well, at least for some. Kuroobi insulted Nami which caused Sanji to stick up for her, Zoro tricked Hatchan, and Usopp...well, when trying to get Luffy out, he accidentally smacks him. It doesn't feel like a serious episode, but still very fun.moreless
