Was gear 5 already animated ? 

There have been glimpses of « Gear 5 » in the non-canon film, One Piece: Red. In the movie, Luffy appears to transform into a new form in a red version, which some fans speculate could be a Gear 5. 

So, Gear 5 was already animated But not in an official way yet.

When will gear 5 be animated ? 

In analyzing the data, we think Gear 5 will be animated around July and during episode 1070-71. If you are curious, check our process :

In which episode will gear 5 be animated ?

First of all, we know Gear 5 appeared in chapter 1044. Now, let’s take a look on the gap between Wano’s epic moments first appearance in manga and tv :

Wano’s epic moments chapter episode  gap
Yamato’s transformation 1019 1041 22
Momo’s transformation 1023 1047 24
Ifrit jambe 1034 1061 27

The gap is now around 26.
Based on the current pacing of the anime, which covers about half to one chapter per episode, it seems like gear 5 is still weeks away from being animated. Despite the slow pace, fans are eagerly anticipating the arrival of this highly anticipated gear, which may take some time to come to fruition.
The release date for gear 5 in the One Piece anime is uncertain and depends on the number of breaks the anime takes. However, our estimation lies between episodes 1069 and 1071.
Our prediction is based on the analysis of the previous anime gears and the current pacing of the One Piece anime. Based on our analysis, we can conclude that gear 5 will most likely appear in episodes 1070

What date will gear 5 be animated ?

Let’s take a look on each Wano’s epic moments first appearance in manga vs tv :

Wano’s epic moments manga Tv Time
Yamato’s transformation July 19, 2021 November 20, 2022 16 months
Momo’s transformation August 30, 2021 Janaury 15, 2023 16 months
Ifrit jambe December 6, 2021 May 7, 2023 16 months

As we can see there is a pattern, 16 months between release in manga and appearance on tv.

Chapter 1044 was live the 28 march 2022. If we make an addition, march 2022 + 16 months = July 2023. So we think, Gear 5 will be animated in July 2023. 

We talk deeply about it in this article : How long until gear 5 in anime ?


In conclusion, while One Piece fans are still eagerly awaiting the official debut of Gear 5 in the anime adaptation, we do have some clues and hints that can give us an idea of when to expect it. Although it has been seen in the non-canon movie One Piece: Red, it has yet to be featured in the official anime. Based on our analysis of the previous gears and the current pacing of the One Piece anime, we estimate that Gear 5 will most likely appear in episodes 1070-71, which are expected to air in July 2023. Of course, the release date may vary depending on how many breaks the anime takes, but fans can still anticipate this power-up of Monkey D. Luffy in the near future. Until then, we will continue to follow the exciting adventures of Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates as they navigate on the road to laugh tale.
