"A Great Buildup - The Fake Straw Hat Crew's Intimidation" is the 520th episode of the One Piece anime.
Brook finishes his concert when the Marines arrive to capture him, but he escapes. Usopp, Chopper, Robin and Nami all reunite at the Ship and find Franky.
The episode opens with Brook finishing his concert and thanking his fans. Later, he goes backstage and is given a bottle of water and pours the water on himself. Later on, his fans call for an encore which he accepts. Then the Marines come and want to arrest him because he is a member of the Straw Hats. Brook starts to sing his last song, proclaiming that Luffy is still alive. The Marines open fire, but Brook already escaped on a flying fish. The episode also shows when Chopper, Usopp, Robin, and Nami reunite at the Thousand Sunny. Chopper and Usopp find Franky and seem to be amazed over the new equipment of his body. We also notice that Franky's voice can become seemingly robotic and he can do several changes to his body parts. His hands have become fairly larger, but we see that a new arm is revealed.
Characters in Order of AppearanceEdit
- The "New World" song is longer than in the manga, where Brook only starts to sing it.
- It is shown how Brook escaped the Marines and some scenes of his past with the Longarm Tribe. Furthermore, the anime also shows his managers feeling some regret for reporting him to the Marines, having developed a sense of comraderie during his rise to stardom.
