Will It Slice?
I saw this anime-original scene of Sanji slicing bananas like a samurai and I was done. I love the overly dramatic cooking here.
Pudding’s reaction is priceless. Of course she would swoon over cooking techniques.

Showing His Fangs
WOAH! Major reveal for Charlotte Family fans! Basskarte revealed his fanged features to Yonji during their battle! Is he Bartolomeo’s long-lost brother? ^O^
Also, as an aside, I didn’t realize how freaking huge Basskarte is until now!

A Growing Family vol.8
At long last! Charlotte Custard -previously only mentioned by name- makes her grand debut!
Wait…she’s Big Mom’s…SIXTH daughter!? She’s older than Brûlée!? Older than Smoothie even!? Age is kind to some I guess!

But do they have Super Powers?
New opening by V6! Wow, haven’t heard that group perform in a LONG time!
So first up we have infamous shaded scenes that, as the story progresses, will probably see some changes or reveals. I have a feeling we’ll be seeing that Luffy and Big Mom but I’d be happy if Carrot stays just as she is.
Toei made an interesting thematic choice for displaying and dividing our heroes and presenting their so-called titular ‘Super Powers’. Notice that the Whole Cake Island Strawhat team’s powers are portrayed in the first half of the opening -with Sanji’s ‘power’ alluding to his confectionary skills rather than his combative prowess- while the Wano team’s powers are clearly separated from the first half.
Not only that, look carefully and you’ll see they aren’t fighting mooks from Whole Cake Island, they’re going up against ragtag pirates and Marines, suggesting that these vignettes are from their adventures towards Wano!
