'One Piece' Chapter 894: The Fight Continues

Mark Jason Alcala

Fans can expect the fight between Luffy and Katakuri to enter into a whole new level in the coming Chapter 894 of Eiichiro Oda's hit One Piece manga series. In the previous installment, it was revealed that the StrawHats Pirates captain finally gained mastery over his Observation Haki, ensuring that this fight is going to get even more interesting. But more importantly, it looks like the boys will bringing out their big guns in the upcoming fight as they will be mixing Observation with another type of ability that they are both capable of: the Conqueror's Haki.

The first needle was able to hit Luffy's leg which drastically limited his movement and resulted in Katakuri wounding the Straw Hat with his trident. However, when Flambe attacked the second time, Luffy successfully dodged the soundless needle attack, which was only possible due to the fact that he was finally able to gain mastery of the ability.

What this ultimately means is that a fully functional Observation Haki will increase Luffy's battle prowess drastically. It would become harder for Katakuri to successfully deal additional damage to him because, just like the Sweet Commander, he will be able to anticipate attacks before they happen.

In fact, to even the odds, he stabbed himself in the same area where Luffy's injuries are located. In addition, he seemed to have lost the urge to hide his true appearance and even revealed his fearsome fans to Flambe and her subordinates, which caused them to flee in shock and terror. It looks like Oda is painting Katakuri in a totally different hue compared to his siblings, and one can only hope for the complex character to stick around even after the current arc is concluded.

One Piece Chapter 894 will be released next week. In the meantime, enjoy a manga review by YouTuber RogersBase.
