My Impressions of Anime I’ve Recently Seen: One Piece Season Five Voyage Four

Recently, I checked out a copy of One Piece Season Five Voyage Four from my local library system. This set includes episodes 300-312 of the series.

And this set continues on with the Enies Lobby arc, which has been going for quite a while already. Fortunately, this episode only has one filler episode in it; unfortunately, it’s a rather painful filler story. It’s set in Grand Jipangu, where Luffy and the others have different identities in this town. There have been some other filler episodes with the Grand Jipangu location and these versions of the characters, but I haven’t enjoyed a single one of them. Hopefully there won’t be any more in the future.

Luffy’s fight with Rob Lucci just seems to drag on for most of this set, which made it hard for me to stay interested in their battle. Fortunately, other characters’ fights and stories progress in this set a lot faster. I don’t want to give too much away, but I will say that Luffy and Lucci’s fight does actually end before the end of this set. Hooray!

The only other thing I will say is that the last episode on this set ends on a very emotional note. And with the way this ends, it makes me curious as to how the story will progress.
