It took a year and 61 episodes to reach the end of this legendary fight. This is the longest combined battle of any anime.
This article contains material set in the final episodes of One Piece.
Luffy VS Kaido: the longest fight ! It was on September 17 when One Piece episode 1076 aired. The latter is the conclusion of a long and fierce battle between Straw Hat and Kaido. In recent weeks, fans have also been able to discover the true nature of their Devil Fruit with the Gear 5. It is, in fact, the physical representation of the Sun God: Nika. This part of the Wano arc also featured some plot twists. However, it remains the longest fight in anime history: 61 episodes and over a year. Some Twitter users, like @kaneda471, also had fun making statistics compared to other Japanese animated series to visualize the duration.
61 episode…. This is unheard of in PTN and I have scary statistics. 61 episodes are:
-3 more episodes than the entire Chimera Ants arc
-18 more episodes than the entire GTO anime
-24 more episodes than the entire Death Note anime
-3 episodes less than the entire FMA anime.
-14 episode… https://t.co/niLol68Jmo
