Ugh, Luffy not using Gear 4th immediately despite being outmatched otherwise takes a few points off this arc's overall quality. It's as dumb as Goku and Vegeta constantly fighting in their base form in the ToP.

I'm not really keeping up with the manga or anything so I wouldn't know what's going on but doesn't Gear 4th have a recharge time or something?

Yeah it makes sense for Luffy to feel out his opponent before going gear 4. Gear four seems to be worse on him than gear 2 was originally. Not to mention he can't just force himself to use it when it reaches it's limit like he at enies lobby.

He's going to need something more than regular gear 4 to get out of this anyway. He barely beat Cracker with Nami's help. Katakuri is far stronger and has godlike observation haki.

It does, but it's well past the minimum recharge time now, since it's been almost an entire day since he last used it

He would've already known how strong Katakuri was from their first clash at the Wedding Ceremony. Had Katakuri been seriously going for the kill, Luffy would be dead by now, so there's no real reason for him to hold back his trump card, regardless of the consequences.

When has luffy ever not held back his trump cards though? He'll continually try ineffective attacks long after they're proven useless. And their brief clash at the wedding really doesn't give us any indication of how powerful he really was.

Also crews boned, luffy's boned, series over.

Which shows how much of an idiot Luffy is and how little he's learnt from his past experiences.
And their brief clash at the wedding really doesn't give us any indication of how powerful he really was.
He countered an Elephant Gun with his own punch and gained the advantage. That should be more than enough for Luffy to know anything below G4 would be useless, especially when combined with his precog.

I still don't think that's enough for luffy to really understand his strength or powers. It certainly wasn't enough for us as readers to understand the extent of katakuri's ability.

I think it's interesting that luffy is able to dodge his attacks even with his precog observation haki. Luffy must have some pretty amazing observation haki himself.

Is Luffy dead yet?
Is Katakuri seriously awesome?

Katakuri is easily the best of big moms crew.

Honestly her commanders have all been pretty lame so far

What even happened in the last chapter again? Luffy is about to use Gear 4?
