One Piece Teases Fans with a Sneak Peek of Luffy’s Gear 5th in the Official Anime Look

The latest episode of One Piece has left fans in awe as it showcases Luffy’s epic battle against Kaido at the climax of the Wano arc. But what’s even more exciting are the hidden gems in the form of impact frames that pay homage to Luffy’s various transformations and tease his highly anticipated Gear 5th power-up. While the manga took a break due to the creator’s recovery from minor surgery, the anime has been delivering stunning episodes during this time, keeping fans thoroughly engaged.

In episode #1069, Luffy unleashes all he has in his Fourth Gear Forms against Kaido. However, keen-eyed viewers spotted something special during his final charge. Around the 21:15-minute mark, quick images flash on the screen, showcasing each of Luffy’s gear forms, including a mysterious and shiny glimpse of Gear 5. Notable content creator Artur from the Library of Ohara shared these intriguing frames on their Twitter account.

For manga readers, Gear 5 is no secret, and the upcoming transformation is a game-changer in the series. It involves Luffy’s awakened devil fruit and grants him incredible abilities that even the Five Elders fear. This transformation has been teased before in the non-canon film One Piece Film: Red, where Luffy briefly shifts into Gear 5 during a climactic moment. However, the true extent of the form’s power remains shrouded in mystery.

The anime’s animators have been cleverly dropping hints about Gear 5 in impact frames since episode #1028, building immense anticipation among fans. As the popularity of One Piece continues to soar worldwide, the excitement surrounding Luffy’s transformation is reaching unprecedented levels. With previous episodes already setting high standards for cinematic action, the debut of Gear 5 promises to be one of the most significant moments in anime this year—a moment that may very well shatter all expectations with its island-sized impact.
