Warning! Contains spoilers for One Piece Episode #1066!Pirates Eustace Kid And Law of Trafalgar are some of the strongest characters in A pieceof manga, but the anime has made them surprisingly stronger. This is a bit surprising since in the current Wano arc of the anime, the characters are already so strong that it doesn’t seem like they will need this kind of upgrade. But ironically, it is because of the average strength of these characters that Kid and Law have to become stronger in the anime.
In episode #1066, Kid and Law continued their fierce battle with Big Mom. For the most part, this fight plays out almost exactly like in chapter #1039 of the manga. However, to fill its length, the anime stretched multiple scenes showing Kid and Law being attacked, really showing the destructive power of Big Mom’s attacks. In one particularly notable instance, an attack from Misery that took over a console in the manga was extended into a series of barrages of blows that sent Kid crashing to the ground. However, despite all the damage they took, they were still able to take out Big Mom with a series of devastating attacks of their own, showing that both Law and Kid are more resilient in the anime than they were in the anime. with manga.
Anime One Piece makes Kid & Law more durable in Manga
Of course, this isn’t the first time the One Piece anime has made its characters more impressive. In Wano alone, anime has raised many battles from manga to new heights. The Zoro vs King battle in One Piece episode #1062 is perhaps the best example of this, with the visual spectacle of the animation raising the already high elevation that the manga sets for that fight. Aside from the specific examples, Toei Studios gave the fights in this installment in general the same quality as the Dragon Balls, with many of the characters using Haki that resembled the much more melodramatic battles in that series.
Ultimately, these changes to battles and character upgrades are just reminders that anime and manga are fundamentally different. They may be telling the same overarching story, but when it comes to the details, they will certainly be different. This is because they are essentially different medias with different constraints. Anime needs to fill a certain amount of running time, which often causes it to stretch parts of the manga. Also, it often needs to make things clearer than the manga, such as when it changes Sanji’s pivotal One Piece battle with the Queen. However, these changes are not necessarily good or bad.
One Piece and Kid’s strengthening law makes their fight better
While some fans of the manga might complain about the anime making Kid and Law seem stronger, it ultimately makes their fight against Big Mom all the more epic. And given Kid’s handling of the manga after Wano ended, seeing him have a more progressive moment in the anime could make many fans of the character very happy.
