As the story arc draws to a close, the expectation is growing as episode 1071 of the show, which will air on August 6, 2023, promises to reveal the Gear 5 transformation.
The teaser’s reception from the audience has been nothing short of spectacular. As anime and manga fans express their delight in the anime’s portrayal of the transition, Twitter is a hive of activity.
Some people express their joy at seeing Luffy’s Gear 5 and draw comparisons to the famous Super Saiyan form from another well-known anime. Other essential phenomena are anxiously anticipating the visual extravaganza that Toei Animation has promised.

Does the One Piece anime’s Gear 5 already have amazing visuals?
Only a little glimpse of Gear 5’s anime representation has been provided thus far by One Piece, but even that makes it seem incredible. Every frame of Gear 5 in animation flawlessly captures the wild energy the form is designed to symbolize.
The art and animation have the same degree of fluidity and imaginative choreography that’s generally associated with the greatest episodes of the Wano arc. Gear 5 was such a huge event that the anime needed to make its premiere as large as it could, and the teaser makes it very apparent that’s precisely what’s happening.
The team for episode #1071 also helps to explain the amazing caliber of Gear 5’s debut. Episode #1071 will not only be directed by Tatsuya Nagamine, widely known for his work on Dragon Ball Super: Broly but it will also be drawn by Midori Matsuda and Keita Saito, the same team behind the stunning animation in Zoro and King’s Fight in episode #1062.
Just from this teaser trailer, it’s evident that the One Piece anime is bringing some of its greatest talents to bring Gear 5 to life, and it will certainly result in one of the largest episodes of the anime to date.
Episode 1,071 of the One Piece TV anime, which will debut in Japan on August 6 and be available to stream shortly after, will feature the “peak” of Luffy’s power. One Piece Film Red, which will be streaming on Crunchyroll on July 27, will give you a preview of Luffy’s strength at its height before then.
