One Piece Chapter 916 Review: Wano Country Sumo Wrestling


Kiku seems to be surprised that Urashima was enraged that she cut off his topknot. This doesn’t make any since to me, considering what I assume is a cultural fact regarding Sumo wrestlers and the value of their topknot’s. Regardless, he attacks her as she apologizes, however, Luffy counters with Gomu Gomu no Thrust. It’s an open palm thrust that clashes with Urashima’s. They both lose their balance and are about to fall out of the ring. They recover, Urashima demands Luffy move so he can “tear Kiku limb from limb.”

Obviously, Luffy would never let that happen. He challenges Urashima to a Sumo match, claiming that he’s “super good,” at Sumo. The newly minted “Sumo Aspiring Pirate: Luffy no Umi,” Luffy get attacked by Urashima’s Bodhisattva Palm. Luffy dodges eat attack without difficulty. Urashima uses Ear Crusher and Eye gouger. Luffy questions where these attacks are against the rules. Luffy uses his Gomu Gomu no Giant Thrust on Urashima.

This sends Urashima flying, as a massive gust of wind blows over the crowd. Zoro gets outed for being the killer of the magistrate and the crowd assumes that they are “rebels.” They go on to save Tama. Kiku apparently is a bit of a ditz. I don’t like that characterization. She’s a clearly competent Samurai, but I didn’t really by that she was so helpless to make decisions for herself. Anyway, Lord Holdem finally shows himself. Tama is being held with in his lion’s mouth. I don’t feel that Tama’s in any real danger, I’m predicting that she use her abilities to make the lion like her. All this as Law and Hawkins arrive.
