One Piece episode 1091 recap
In the previous episode, the Straw Hat crew encounter a huge robot with a woman revealing herself to be Vegapunk. Franky is excited and announces his appreciation for Vegapunk's works as they inspired his own craft. Usopp is screaming with Joy about the robot, Sanji is overjoyed at the sight of the woman and Zoro is on guard.
Robin enters her attack stance as she is suspicious that Vegapunk is a woman and the scientist elaborates that she is Punk-02 "Lilith". The research budget is tight so she decides to loot the Straw hats and surrounds the crew with robotic sea beasts. Lilith receives a call from Punk-01 "Shaka" and he warns her to retreat as she is in over her head for confronting the Straw Hat crew. He warns her that Zoro can eliminate her at will and Zoro then threatens Lilith but Shaka recommends that she bring them to Egghead Island.
The episode cuts to Luffy, Bonney, Chopper, and Jimbei. Bonney points them towards the island and she explains that she was here as a child and has resentments towards Vegapunk. The scientist turned her father into a cyborg and she is set on revenge.
The group arrives on the surface and they discover a futuristic city where giant creatures are fighting. Luffy jumps towards the monsters but passes right through them. The group then spots a parfait and attempts to eat it but fail again. Luffy begins to think they are in the afterlife but Jimbei realizes that the food and creatures are holograms and then a giant girl arrives.
Luffy thinks she is a hologram and she punches Luffy towards a machine that serves food. Luffy enjoys a hamburger and the group then dines on many dishes. The woman is angry that she can't mass produce her inventions and that they need more technicians as she reveals her light pressure gloves allow her to touch holograms. She introduces herself to the group as a scientist Dr. Vegapunk and the group responds with surprise and with suspicion from Bonney.
