Finally the fifteenth season starts. The last season has been a chaotic mess with boring villains and far too long drawn-out conflicts; still I have high hopes for this season as I presume we will finally see the New World.
This season opener has potential, although it still suffers under the astonishing negative weight of the fourteenth season. Still, starting the season with an episode full of party, friendship and happiness is surprising and it feels fresh; usually, the first episode of an One Piece season always presented us a problem.
Jinbei is going to be a part of Ruffy's crew, I welcome that, as Jinbei is one of the best characters introduced in the last few seasons.
So, let's start into this new chapter. I hope we will get the usual One Piece story twists and turns.


Ruffy, injured from his fight with Hody, requires a blood transfusion. However, no one from the island is willing to help as he is a human. Jinbei volunteers, and organizes a new law for the fishmen. Ruffy then offers Jinbei to join his crew. Jinbei reluctantly tells Ruffy that he cannot join his crew at the moment but he will in the future when he is finished with his tasks and obligations. They are all soon called to celebrate their victory at the Palace with merriment, music, drink and food. Robin asks and discusses a troubling and possibly dangerous secret with King Neptune surrounding his daughter, Shirahoshi, the ship Noah and the mysterious Joy Boy.
