I figured I should only post this like two, three days after One Piece episode 482 aired. I’ll assume most One Piece anime fan would have watch this week’s episode already.

She introduces herself as second year Tōko Amano, the literature girl, and asks him to join the Literature Club so that he doesn’t expose her secret.
