One Piece 1059 Review


Recommended Posts

Okay so my first thoughts about this chapter are that it seems like Oda wants to let us know that Marco is relevant and will continue to be so in the future. I'm a bit surprised to see him talking to the red hair pirates. In my mind, I'm like, why show that at all? Did they discuss something important. Did Marco reveal some much needed information? I guess we'll find out. 

We also get to Yamato tell Luffy that she's staying behind! That was disappointing! A total fake out by Oda. He had everyone thinking that Yamato was going to join the crew. It makes you wonder if the crew is now completely set. There has been a ton of opportunities to add new crew members and we just haven't gotten any. Yea, sure we finally have Jimbei aboard but its taken forever! And he's not new! I would have loved to have 2-3 new faces to join in on the adventure by actually sailing with the crew.

I wasn't expecting to see Boa hancock this chapter, she came out of nowhere. We get to see her thinking about the fact that as long as she's on her island it will always be targeted by the Navy and other troublemakers like blackbeard. It makes you wonder if she might find her way to Luffy at some point down the line. At this point I really doubt it. There has been basically zero romance in One Piece. It's always been about discovering a new island and helping the local inhabitants overcome their oppressor with the help of Nakama. I think injecting a little romance in to it would up the stakes even more and inject some new layers into the manga. This manga has been going on for 20 years. It has plenty of mature fans that I think would appreciate that sort of evolution.

So we get to see Boa Hancock's island raided by the Navy and marines. Koby sure is leveling up fast. Boa Hancock manages to petrify everyonebut Koby and blackbeard and Rayleigh. And that pacifista was wrecking everone before Blackbeard used his "blackhole".  These new Pacifista's are going to be a problem. It seems like if you're someone that doesn't have advanced haki you won't stand a chance. And can we just take a moment to appreciate Blackbeard's pants. He has the most stylish pants in the whole manga. He's definitely the most stylish Yonko. Three skulls on his hats, fancy pants😂, 3 guns, captains jacket, epic beard with three separate knots at the ends. He is arguably the most detailed oriented guy in the manga.

Anyways, Silver Rayleigh steps in to help save Boa from the marines and blackbeard. Now that Koby has been kidnapped by the blackbeard pirates it makes you wonder what Marshal D Teach has planned for him. Several thoughts run through my mind: he will use him as leverage to get something he wants from the marines(i can't imagine he simply wants to torture him), Koby has some information that blackbeard needs, Blackbeard will use him to try to control the pacifistas in some way. I also think its possible that Luffy ends up saving Koby from the Blackbeard pirates. There are a lot of different ways that this could go.

One last thought it looked like Shakuyaku indicated that one of the pacifista's looked like Boa Hancock when she was young. Is it possible that the Navy is cloning powerful pirates and using them as their replacements?
