Many episodes of "One Piece" have passed since the deadly combat between the captain of the straw hat pirates and one of the three gentle generals took place in the world of mirrors. After Flampe's onslaught, the fight seemed to turn in favour of Katakuri, however, as the battle turns towards the final, things do not seem to be that way. Luffy and Katakuri have now reached an extremely high level of strength in the last episodes of "One Piece" and, for the first time, are on a par. Only willpower will be the factor that will help one of the two challengers to win.

Episode 869 of One Piece

It seems like the fight between Luffy and Katakuri is finally going to hit its end in “One Piece” Episode 869.

The title of “One Piece” Episode 869 being “Wake Up! The Color of Observation Able to Top the Strongest!.” According to ComicBook, the preview for the episode teases that Katakuri once again has taken control of the fight and is pushing Luffy back at every turn.

However, it seems that during the fight he will relive another training moment with Rayleigh, and is doing much better at dodging his attacks. In the next episode, it seems that Luffy will be able to fully awaken his Observation Haki, obtaining a remarkable power-up that will overwhelm one of the most lethal battles faced by the captain in "One Piece" in his favour.

Thanks to some tweets, one can observe different scenes of the last episode, the one that probably most of all started the final stages of the interminable fight.

After Katakuri understands the strength of Luffy and accepts the captain as his equal, he hurts himself to compensate for the wounds that straw hat was vilely beaten by one of Katakuri's younger half-sisters, Flampe. The clash resumed with a fight between King of the Conqueror and then continued with a close sequela of blows and punches. Just at the end of the episode, an exchange of direct reinforcements from the Haki of the Armor shows once again how neither of the two contenders wants to give up.

Luffy's statue

The well-known Japanese manufacturing company Banpresto has recently announced a new statue dedicated to Monkey D. Luffy, which will show off its most recent power-up for the occasion.
