Synopsis

"Silver Mine" deals with Luffy and Bartolomeo getting kidnapped by the Silver Pirate Alliance. The story arc, called "Zou", adapts material beginning from the middle of the 80th volume to the middle of the 82nd volume of the manga by Eiichiro Oda. The Straw Hats arrived at Zou to reunite with Sanji and the others, only to discover Sanji has been swept up in a personal conflict and that Zou has been under siege by the Beasts Pirates. "Marine Rookie" deals with Luffy robbing a marine base for food after running out of it on the ship.

TL;DR Review

The 18th season of One Piece starts off with the filler episodes and ends with more filler episodes. The filler episodes are 747-751, 775, and 780-782.

The only none filler arc this season is the “Zou” arc, which covers the Straw Hats adventure on Zou, a giant walking elephant island. Here we learn more about the Ponegliffs and their importance to One Piece. Again we get introduces to many new allies that will help the Straw Hats on their path. Of course, we are also seeing new villains that will hinder their path as well. This arc is important in that this is the start of the Straw Hats path in challenging the Yonko. The Yonko are the four most notorious and powerful pirate captains in the world. They are not allies nor are they strictly enemies of one another.

I highly recommend this season to One Piece fan. One Piece contains strong graphic violence and moderate suggestive themes/dialogs.

Pirates are evil? The Marines are righteous? These terms have always changed throughout the course of history! Kids who have never seen peace and kids who have never seen war have different values!
