"Impossible to Avoid!? Admiral Kizaru's Speed of Light Kick!!" is the 401st episode of the One Piece anime.
Admiral Kizaru appears at the Archipelago and demonstrates his mysterious light abilities, before taking on the Supernova, Basil Hawkins, whilst Urouge and X Drake fight a Pacifista. Kid and Law continue their bout with another Pacifista, while the Straw Hat Pirates come face to face with a third one. A mysterious figure with a giant broadaxe is seen at the end, waiting for a call.
In Grove 27, pirates are trying their best to distance themselves from Kizaru whom we're finally introduced to properly. One pirate tries to shoot the admiral but the shot does not even affect him as it phases through the admiral. Kizaru then appears in front of them trying to ask them where he can find someone named Sentomaru but the pirates run away in fear. Kizaru then attacks them with light coming from his foot, which he kicks outwards. This not only passes in between the pirates, it also topples a mangrove in the process much to the disapproval of his troops. Although this terrifies the two pirates, Apoo, who is nearby, does not seem impressed by his power. In another part of the area, a few of the marines have been turned into either old men or children. The culprit of such being Bonney, who laughs at them as she stuffs her face. A few more marines encounter and surround Bege, but he informs them that they've already lost. Kizaru then comes across Hawkins, whose crew wish for him to run. He calmly tells them that he is not destined to die on that day. Back with the Straw Hats, as Usopp tries to convince Luffy not to go back to the amusement park, a figure stands before them prompting Luffy to ask who he is.
