One Piece has returned from its hiatus with the release of episode 930. The installment further features Luffy breaking quarantine directives.
After being on a break for two months, One Piece has made its comeback with the release of episode 930. The show’s highly-anticipated installment was entitled A Lead Performer! Queen the Plague Emerges.
One Piece Episode 930 continued to showcase Luffy’s story in prison after his defeat at the hands of Kaido. It specifically featured Luffy saving an old man named Hyogoro from being bullied by prison guards.
One Piece incorporates quarantine scene
The anime series’ 930th installment has not only satisfied fans with its action scenes. It also left fans in awe after incorporating a scene that draws inspiration from COVID-19 directives.
In one part of the episode, Luffy ripped off a prison guards’ face mask. As a result, those who were restraining Luffy sneezed on him.
Since the series was on hiatus due to the effects of the pandemic, One Piece helmers have certainly drawn comparisons to the real-life quarantine. With this at hand, devotees who have considered facial masks as part of their life described the installment as cathartic and meaningful.
“Old man, let me help you!”
