The long-awaited anime, Monsters is officially released on Netflix. With the full title Monster: 103 Mercies Dragon Damnation or Monsters: Ippyaku Sanjou Hiryuu Jigoku, the anime tells more about one of the important characters in One Piece, Ryuma Shitmotsuki.

Ryuma looks young, fresh, and has black hair which was tied in the end with a topknot. He wears a simple khaki samurai gi and simple zori sandals. He looked so different when he turned out to be a zombie with his skull face, no eyes, and no nose. The episode closed with a great scene as fans can see Zombie Ryuma meet Zoro. Monsters is now available on Netflix. Don’t miss it if you are Nakama.
