The piece, in particular, comes from WodenCreativ on Twitter, as you can see below. It was there that the hype illustrator A pieceLuffy’s big reveal with an anime makeover, and Luffy’s new Gear form looks absolutely stunning.

As you can see above, the form focuses on Luffy once he activates his Devil Fruit following Kaido’s victory. For a moment, it looked like the Yonko managed to kill the Straw Hat Captain, but that was before the truth was revealed. Luffy received a second wind from the Hito Hito no Mi – the real name of the fruit he ate as a child – and it helped him free Gear Fifth.
The form doesn’t do much to Luffy’s body at its core, but it does give him the ability to cock and pump it up on command. It gives him more agility on the battlefield as you might imagine, and Gear Fifth causes some physical changes. After all, Luffy’s dark hair is replaced with yellow-orange flames and his expression takes on a cartoonish look. Not to mention the fiery design his eyes adopt, and a cloudy substance seems to follow Luffy wherever he goes when he enters Gear Fifth.

It’s obvious that this form is unlike any other Luffy has unlocked before, and A piece barely touched its surface. There’s a lot to explore with Gear Fifth, and Kaido will be the first to feel its power firsthand. And if the World Government is right, well – the captain of the Beasts Pirates could very well lose this battle.
