This is was a really good episode! It's getting me excited for the arc, and that's always a good sign. I love how weird and mysterious PH starts out
Lots of things to be happy about - everyone looked good (especially nice to see the girls drawn better); the gas animation was cool; everything about Kinemon; and that music for CC was soooo perfect. The little chiming tune reminded me of a daycare….a creepy daycare. Speaking of, the Biscuits room really benefited from being in color - it looks nice. All the kids wearing white is interesting.
Sanji has always kicked anyone who stares at the ladies, his own behavior notwithstanding. I'm just watching through Fishman Island, so I can really appreciate the fact that he can interact with Nami as an actual human being again, though. And his knowledge of the samurai and willingness to bring him along is great (also, I thank him for fixing the head...that was driving me crazy!). This is a really good arc for Sanji.
