Truly a special day to be an One Piece fan ! Luffy reached its peak, One Piece reached its peak.
Did Luffy’s Gear 5 Broke The Internet?
Luffy’s Gear 5 did broke the internet but it was limited to few regions. While many were watching the episode 1071 of One Piece without any server issue, some were having server crashed issue in Crunchyroll and even in few pirated anime websites.
Honestly, I was watching it too and I didn’t have any problem or server issue. The crash was limited to few regions and majority of viewers didn’t face any server breake during the airing of episode.
Here, someone even recorded the clips of Luffy’s Gear 5 episode during the airing from Crunchyroll and Aniwatch (zoro.to) and as we can see the servers are just fine.
In conclusion, Luffy’s Gear 5 did break the internet! We did the research and Crunchyroll outrage reports were spiking before & during the airing of One Piece Episode 1071. Not just crunchyroll, many other anime websites were also down.
The animators really outdid themselves with the whole gear 5 sequence. During the episod, the “Special Announcement” was also made, which is the Re-screening of One Piece Film Red (4K) in October 20, 2023.
