Episode 873 of ‘One Piece‘ is titled “Pulling Back from the Brink – The Formidable Reinforcements Germa!"
The Episode covers the whole Chapter 898: We’ll definitely Return!!’
The Episode starts where it ended the last time. Germa 66 came to Sanji and Luffy’s rescue.
Germa 66 asks Sanji to take Luffy and leave the Island while they will fight out with the Big Mom Pirates.
After Oven asks what happened to Nusstorte and the army sent to kill Germa, Ichiji tells him that they defeated and dumped them into the sea. Considering most of Big Mom children are Devil Fruit users, they probably wouldn’t survive this.
Sanji and Luffy were getting away but the male decuplets target the two Straw Hats with bazookas. Ichiji, Niji, and Yonji then used Black Bug to intercept the bazooka fire.
This whole scenario was added in the anime. They sure are emphasizing on Germa’s powers.
After that we also see Judge ordering his soldiers to attack the Big Mom Pirates’ ships. In the manga, he did not appear until he defended the Thousand Sunny from Smoothie.
Another scene was added in the anime when Nami questions about Germa’s presence, Brook wonders if Reiju came to show her panties.
In the midst of the chaos Brūlee tells everyone that Strawhat Luffy shouldn’t be forgiven as he defeated Katakuri. Everyone gets more angry after hearing this especially Oven.
While running away Sanji gets hit by a bullet on his left arm. About time he got hit, I was just thinking so many bullets are raining down from everywhere and none of them hits him.
Angry Oven corners and attacks Sanji and Luffy but thankfully Ichiji comes to their rescue. Ichigi uses ‘Sparkling Valyrie’ to stop Oven. Another flashback scene of Sanji is added in the anime.
Sanji once again starts running through the sky but Yuen approaches to attack him. Yonji breaks Yuen’s hammer and attacks him using ‘Winch Guillotine’.
Another guy shoots a bazooka at Sanji but Niji blocks it and helps Sanji get away with his speed. We also see Niji’s light speed attack ‘Henry Blazer’.
Sanji and Niji’s conversation is also extended in the anime.
In the manga, Reiju only helped Sanji by using ‘Pink Hornet’ on some of the Big Mom Pirates. But in the anime, she also saves him from bazooka fire.
Reiju says her final words to Sanji and asks him to not let go of Luffy.
Reiju’s flashback scene and their conversation is also added in the anime.
At the end of the Episode, Sanji is in a visible distance to the Sunny. In the next episode Sanji and Luffy will arive on the Sunny.
