This episode turns out to be exactly opposite to the first episode of the series, which had enormous content. In this episode the story didn't seem to progress any further, it could have been done in about 5 to 10 minutes easily.
The blind man gives a teaser of his abilities, to which the crew as well as all the people are baffled. He refuses to tell Luffy his identity, meanwhile, Zorro's Shusui goes missing and he heads in pursuit of the thief.
The episode started well with the blind man's attack, which was good and well animated, but after that it's just a downfall and the story progresses at a snail's pace. It also lacked any comic moments. Luffy's reaction to a shocking revelation could have been better animated. Even so, the episode ends with a good build up for next week.
Story/Screenplay: Slow and weak.
Overall a slow and short episode, rather a disappointment after a weeks wait.
