"Boss Luffy Returns! A Dream or Reality Lottery Trouble" is the 291st episode of the One Piece anime.

Short SummaryEdit

The Straw Hat Pirates and the Buggy Pirates are in an alternate reality based on feudal Japan, called Jipangu. Buggy tries to sell Rika as a slave to make up for Pandaman's debts, who Buggy thinks is Rika's father.

Long SummaryEdit

In the Edo period-based alternate reality Grand Jipangu, the small girl Rika takes an ill person, whom everyone calls Tot-san (which means "father" in Japanese), to her house to nurse him back to health. Organized crime boss Buggy the Clown and one of the town's highest officials scheme to get rid of Detective Luffy. Mistaking Rika to be the daughter of Tot-san, Buggy kidnaps her to collect Tot-san's debt. When Luffy comes to rescue her, the high official attempts to exile him for attacking an innocent citizen. Instead, he himself is stripped of his position for joining forces with criminals by the shogun's daughter Vivi.

Anime NotesEdit

  • This is the first episode where Pandaman is a main character.
  • This is one of the only few episodes where Luffy uses a weapon, a small Jutte (throughout the series, Luffy also used a Katana during the Thriller Bark Arc when he absorbs a marine swordsman's shadow. He also used a gun at one point to save Nami), though he just carries it in his hand while he punches.
