One Piece – Episode 899: Inevitable defeat – The assault of the dolls of straw! | Review
As we have already seen in the previous episode of One Piece, which you can find here my review, our swordsman Zoro, known in Wa as the ronin Zorojuro, seems to be particularly interested in the idea of colliding directly with Hawkins, the Magician (if you want to discover everything regarding it, and that we have been able to discover up to this time about him, I refer to my special article focused on Basil Hawkins), mainly for the fact that this Pirate Generation is the Worst to use as a main weapon just a sword.
Certainly, the power conferred on him by his Devil Fruit, the Wara Wara no Mi, has not made things simple for Zoro, but we know very well that this is a skilled swordsman you just love the challenges! For these reasons, Zoro decided to deal with personally to the one who at this moment is putting a spoke in the wheels to him and to his Captain, intent on searching for someone that could help the small O-Tama, which has suffered a poisoning due to the ingestion of the polluted water of a water course, the girl has been drinking, although she was well aware of the risks to which this would have exposed, to appease his hunger.
STRENGHT BEYOND STRENGHT
Basil Hawkins is a man very dangerous to his opponents as his allies, and was certainly not going to miss the two pirates like Zoro and Luffy, strong also of the fact that a particular card of his Tarot, the Pope turned upside down, has given a remarkable bonus that concerns the pursuit of its objectives.
The fighting techniques of that has this pirate, which, I remember, is located in the Country of Wa as it is now become a subject of the Emperor, Kaido of the 100 Beasts, considered to be the strongest man in the world, are many and varied, and will certainly not be easy for Zoro to be able to get rid of it, at least for the moment.
The ex-bounty hunter must then work hard to not soccombergli, and the fact that it has the indisputable advantages that they can bring into battle the powers derived from any Fruit of the Devil, as it may seem to be a point against Zoro, not be said to be: Eiichirō Oda has, in fact, envisioned a world in which even those who do not have special powers to be able to deal with enemies who have eaten a Devil Fruit, and Zoro is with Luffy, one of the best examples of how we can count on strength and combat techniques inhumane, even without being able to count on any kind of the Fruit.
Basil Hawkins, for his part, can count not only on his extraordinary powers, but also on cartomancy, which this man takes this incredibly seriously: if his cards for him, suggest not to proceed in his action, Hawkins does not challenge never the fate, strong of the fact that his predictions are very, very, very reliable.
As we all know, however, Hawkins is not the only problem our heroes have to deal with: the conditions of O-Tama does not make that aggravation, and the girl, who now also has a very high fever and lost consciousness for a long time, because of his poisoning, he was in serious danger of losing his young life, if Zoro and Luffy will not be able to take it to someone who can treat you. However, according to the Tarot of Hawkins, unexpected help is about to come...
Again, you will find the themes, incredibly topical, pollution and overexploitation of natural resources, which inevitably lead to the deterioration of the natural environments themselves. Unfortunately for the inhabitants of the Land of Wa, there are places in which we can consider safe from similar environmental factors so strongly altered, unless you are part of the restricted and the rich elite that have water and food that is not contaminated, of course.
In the light of all these difficulties, it might be really complicated to be able to find a cure for the acute intoxication of the sweet little O-Tama, but Luffy and Zoro are not men inclined to give up, and will do everything in their power to save the life of the little friend of the now deceased and the late Portgas D. Ace.
The truth about the Country of Wa is far more gruesome and dark than we have been able to see, up to this moment, and lots of new information about it will be revealed in the next episode of One Piece, from the title of The most beautiful day of my life – the sweet soup of red beans O-Tama. Kaizoku ou ni ore wa naru!
I remember that Stampede, the newest film of One Piece, saw the light in Japan last August 9, and will be distributed in Italian cinemas, thanks to Koch Media, starting from the next October 24.
