Episode 871 of ‘One Piece‘ is titled “Finally, It’s Over – The Climax of the Intense Fight against Katakuri”.
The Episode starts where it ended the last time. Luffy and Katakuri both gave their all in the last attack.
We see Brûlée untying herself and planning to join Oven. The scene was added in the anime.
The anime also adds a scene where Oven mistakenly hits Newsan. Unlike in the manga, one of the decuplet females mistakenly hits Newshi. Afterwards, both Newsan and Newshi punch Newji.
The anime reveals that Newji is the one who asked about the possibility of Katakuri losing.
Then we see Sanji and Pudding who are still in hiding waiting for Luffy. Extra flashback scenes of Sanji and Pudding prior to Pudding’s farewell are added in the anime.
We finally see the scene where Pudding kisses Sanji (not shown but obvious).
It was indeed a sad Goodbye!! We will see some details about the kiss later probably in 2,3 more episodes.
I am sure Oda plans to reunite Pudding and Sanji someday.
Coming back to Luffy and Katakuri, it seems Katakuri’s attack was far too much powerful. It sent Luffy to the underground again.
Luffy’s Gear Four wears out but Katakuri has also taken damage from Luffy’s King Cobra , as a result he falls forward.
As he falls, Katakuri says that he would never lose, this last dialogue was added in the anime. At this time there are only 22 minutes remaining until the rendezvous.
Then we see some extra scenes of Chiffon spotting Funwari Island and Brook asking to see Smoothie’s panties.
After that Luffy comes back from the hole. He sees Katakuri who fell on the ground after Luffy’s attack. Luffy thinks that even if Katakuri didn’t fall on his back it is still his win.
Luffy then remembers Nami’s words about meeting at 1 am. As Luffy crawls his way, Katakuri stands up again. Seeing him Luffy also stands up and gets ready to fight more.
But then to his surprise, Katakuri asks Luffy if he will come back to take down Big Mom in the future. To which Luffy answers “Ofcourse I will, I am the man who is going to be the Pirate King!!”
Hearing this Katakuri grins a little and tells him that ‘he is seeing quite far into the future’.
After saying that Katakuri falls on his back as a way to accept his defeat against Luffy. At this time there are 11 minutes until the rendezvous.
Luffy and Katakuri appears to have less blood on their faces than in the manga.
Katakuri will get stronger and wait for a rematch with Luffy until he comes back again someday.
At the end Pekoms comes to Luffy’s rescue but disguising himself as Nazoms. But Luffy identifies him anyway.
Pekoms is also carrying Brulée to ensure that Luffy and his crew gets out of WCI.
At this time there are only 6 minutes until rendezvous.
