Why is Gear 5 so Hyped?
The Gear 5 transformation is a significant milestone in the One Piece universe. It represents the full awakening of Luffy’s fruit after over 1,000 chapters, bringing his strength to demi-god levels befitting the future Pirate King.
The transformation is also deeply tied to the lost history of One Piece, suggesting that Luffy may be the latest rebirth of the iconic freedom fighter, Joyboy.
In his Gear 5 form, Luffy attains demi-god levels of power. His rubber body can freely stretch, expand, and contort without limit. He can toss lightning bolts, turn the environment into rubber, and even warp Kaido’s body like putty!
The transformation is so powerful that it has fans on the edge of their seats, eagerly awaiting its animation in the upcoming episode.
One Piece fans have seen Luffy struggle even with the enemies he defeated. With him attaining Gear 5, fans are awaiting an overwhelming victory of Luffy against his enemies in the future.
Moreover, some of the industry’s best animators, including an animator that worked on Luney Toones’ cartoon, is working on making Gear 5 come to life. With so much talent working on the transformation, fans should expect nothing but a masterpiece episode.
