That's not what Strobacaxi said at all...
Give him a break. Not his fault he got saved by Crocodile, Buggy and Law. The guy even said, after waking up, that he was ashamed of being alive. Clearly he's as good as you want. It just happens that he still lives LOL
Katakuri (potato starch, damn it! I love plants but that name dogtooth is so stupid) dodged by jumping up towards Luffy. That's actually effective because he got to dodge and close the distance to attack at the same time.
No, not missed kick, Luffy dodged to the left and got behind him before he even kicked so what he did next was actually rotating his body in the air, using his left leg as sort of like a pivot, turn I don't know maybe 180 degree and kicked Luffy by his right leg.
Hey i think it is funny, i am waiting for the crew to be eating dinner with jimbe.
Luffy "hey jimbe pass the salt"
Jimbe "i am ready to lie down my life for the sake of passing the salt"
Usopp "hey jimbe pass the mayo"
Jimbe "i will acomplish this task even if it kills me, i am ready to die"
Oh so he turned in mid air? Makes a litte more sense but i have to then knock luffy for dodging so slowly.
It just doesnt make sense considering the cirmstances. He has all the tools in the world and he used the same attack twice? The guy has a DF he has a staff, jelly beans he uses like bullets, he can punch... so after the first kick was dodged he threw a second kick.
Like i said above about how the scene looks, i get it, he was one upping everything luffy did, luffy threw a kick so he had to hit luffy with a kick. But the shot looking cool is no excuse for throwing two kicks in a row.
But i am harping on that a little too much, my mai problem is the lack of defined positions in the fight, dodging is one thing but non stop teleporting is another.
Katakuri literally has several arms. Luffy doesn't. His gattling (and similar moves) is just him punching repeatedly
If he can turn other stuffs into rubber then he can manipulate (control and shape) them, imbue CoA and do a 360 degree Kong Gun fest like DD made a bunch of giant thread needles to stab Luffy.
Or add the extra rubber on his body to make him a giant
Superhuman (or whatever Katakuri is) doesn't give a fuck about that. If he's fast enough then he can rotate in the air no problem. Doesn't even need Geppou. All he has to do is kick his left leg up then move it backward so fast so he can rotate.
Well the thing about rotating in air, it isnt possible in such a short distance. If he used his df it would be simple but he didnt.
And for him to simply rotate in mid air without landing would rob his kick of nearly all its power.
Unless of course like you said (and me) he can fly and use moon walk.
