About Me

  1. I love the start of this chapter. Right away we have Luffy screaming that Sabo would never do that! In regards to the news being reported that Sabo killed king Cobra. Nico Robin instantly agrees. As a side note I love how Robin almost always seems to be in tune with Luffy's feelings. The way Oda characterizes her is that she seems to understand Luffy more than anyone. Zoro comes in at a close 2nd but he butts heads with Luffy pretty often. Robin on the other hand seems to know exactly how to handle Luffy and seems to be in sync regarding his thoughts and feelings. That's part of the reason, I'm not a big fan of shipping Robin and Law😏. I love how when Luffy says "lets go to marijoa" and Zoro second guesses him, Luffy immediately says "are you scared or something?"πŸ˜‚. Zoro immediately gets upset. I like seeing Zoro display some common sense for once but in this instance it would have been even funnier to see Zoro get so riled up by Luffys accusation that "he's scared", that Zoro starts campaigning to go to Marijoa even more than Luffy, like a challenge. From there the two of them would get angry at the rest of the crew for having a little more common sense a recognizing that it's a bad idea. Chopper, Nami and Sanji being torn up about Vivi is priceless. Interestingly enough, Ussop is more sad about King Cobra. I would have thought that everyone would be feeling bad about Vivi. But I guess this is just Oda's way of showing us that the Strawhats cared about both of them. Nico Robin telling Luffy that there are more names in the news that have a connection to him and asking if he wants to know is just another example of how well she knows him. The two of them are just laid back and calm about it. Luffy's like just tell me if its "really bad", to me, that's like saying just tell me if I need to go rescue someone. In hindsight though, I find it curious that Koby's abduction by the blackbeard pirates wasn't put in the paper. You would have to think Luffy would at least be a little concerned. And to me that would register to as "really bad". At least bad enought to let Luffy know. So it is curious to me that Robin doesn't mention it at all. I would also love to know what Garp and Sengoku have been up to. Robin's panels are always so interesting. When Luffy shares his real dream with the crew(not his dream of wanting to be pirate king) Zoro, Jinbei, Nami and Ussop are shocked to the point of near confusion. Brook, Franky and Sanji find it hilarious, Chopper is impressed and Robin is just stunned but seemingly in a good way. Later on, Luffy is like oh yeah, I forgot I never told you guys about this dream, only shanks, ace and Sabo. We then get another panel of Robin on the same page, no other crew member but Robin reacting, she is leaning over intently while smiling and she asks Luffy what they said when he told them about his dream and he says they all just laughed and that Shanks had tears in his eyes. He says it in a calm peaceful way, with his hands behind his back. I don't know about you guys, but to me it sure seems like Oda drew these last few chapters on the ship with Robin and Luffy having some STRONG vibes passing between them. He doesn't make it overtly obvious, or show the rest of the crew reacting to it but often times when Robin is talking to someone when the rest of the crew is around she's talking to Luffy or reacting to him. Lately Robin always seems to know the perfect thing to do regarding Luffy or at least already have a good idea of how he'll respond to something before she says it. I remember that scene in Wano right after they had beaten Kaido and Big Mom. Robin had just learned that the ancient weapon Neptune is in Wano. Robin asks Luffy if he's interested in Neptune and he's like nahh. And she's like, "I figured that you'd say that". And she has this self assured look to her. I don't know I'm sensing some early makings of a romantic setup. Definitely something to keep an eye on. The discussion on the ship ends with the crew discussing the need to get to laughtale but the problem is they don't know where to find the last road poneyglyph. We cut away to navy HQ where big things are going down. The navy was able to trace Sabo's call over the den den mushi. It seems like he didn't use a secure line. They've pinpointed his location to Lulusia. One of the 8 countries that revolted. Sabo begins telling dragon that he wasn't the one that assassinated king cobra. And that the throne that is supposed to be empty actually isn't. And then seems to be cut off. As a side note I don't see how this information could have been kept secret for so long. But either way. They begin jamming Sabo's communication, the citizens of Lulusia see something in the clouds overhead. We see a panel of Lulusia on the map and then another panel of Lulusia being crossed out. Next thing we know, we see this huge light that appears to be shining down on the citizens. With this citizens looking up to see what it is. Interestingly enough Sabo sees the light too. But it appears he's look up and to the side. He's not looking directly up. It gives the impression that he's not directly under the light. And then in an instant the light comes down, our perspective zooms out and it appears that the island is totally obliterated. Now part of me feels like it was something akin to a nuclear weapon. The fandom thinks its "uranus" one of the three ancient weapons that has been talked about for years. I will admit that it does make sense for the the world government to be in control of the weapon. How else would they have gained control of the world. Having a huge deterrent like that makes sense. However another part of me feels like it could be Imu's power. It makes sense that Imu would have an incredibly strong devil fruit. Some have specualted that its immortality, others have speculated that Imu can control the sea because Imu is Umi backwards and that means sea or ocean in Japanese. But what if it's something totally different. What if its some kind of sun fruit, star fruit or meteor fruit. The fact that the citizens could see a shadow in the clouds makes you think that it could perhaps be some kind of big object that was falling. But the fact that it seemed to be a bright light seems to dismiss that idea. At this point its honestly too hard to know. But whatever the weapon is, Imu is obviously in control of it. It has to have some kind of recharge or limit to it. Also you can't just destroy an entire island and everybody just forgets that it ever existed. Also why destory the island in this way? Why did the navy do a buster call on the island of ohara. If Imu could do this, buster calls are pointless. There are a ton of questions here and I doubt we'll get any answers to this anytime soon.
  2. 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 pantsπŸ˜‚, 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?
  3. I get it. Placing Luffy in a cage and having Nami yell at him is funny. But with Luffy's newly established emperor standing it feels a bit over the top that he would be weak, battered and bruised locked up in a little cage. Especially after that fight with Kaido. The only way that could make sense is if that cage were made of seastone but even then I don't like it. Jimbei just laughing about it and Nami turning around screaming at him to , telling him not to coddle luffy is gold though. It's particularly interesting because when she yells she's on fire! And Jimbei is like whoa is that supreme king haki? Now me personally I highly doubt that Nami has supreme king haki. But with Luffy finally awakening his devil fruit which gives him the freedom to kind of warp the world as he pleases, it kinda makes me wonder if there isn't some kind of fruit affect happening here. It would explain how Luffy could be all beat up and could also explain the flames coming from Nami. Franky is ecstatic to see how the Sunny was easily able to handle the fall and Zoro is just sleeping through everything. This chapter is obviously a bounty update chapter. It's fun to see the crew react to all of their updated bounties. All of the reactions are cool but a few stick out to me. For one, the idea that Ussop's bounty is 500 million is ridiculous. All those years ago could you ever had imagined that Ussop would get this strong. I remember a time when Luffy's bounty was 300 million. I still feel like that version of Luffy could still easily overcome this version of Ussop. Sanji being raging mad and sad at the same time over Zoro and Jimbei having a higher bounty than him is lovely. Zoro in particular just drives the stake through hie heart when he says "who cares what fourth place thinks"πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜… What's even more interesting to consider is that Zoro's bounty is slightly higher than Jimbei. We all knew it was coming eventually. There was no way Luffy was going to be in contention for pirate king when his first mate wasn't capable of going one on one with other captains. But still its still a bit eye opening to actually see it happen in real time. I actually feel like eventually Zoro is going to have to reach the ability to easily defeat a character on the level of Trafalgar Law. Now we know he's going to have to over come Dracule Mihawk one day, whose bounty is revealed to be even higher than Luffy's, which absolutely nuts considering everything that Luffy has done. There is an idea that has been floating around that the world government is intentionally keeping Luffy's bounty low. I for one am inclined to agree. In the end, Luffy fought Kaido one on one and beat him and Law and Kidd fought big mom together and beat her. Neither of the battles were completely clean wins. Both Yonko had incurred some damage throughout the arc by different people. But I think we all agree that Luffy's bouty at a minimum should be higher than Law and Kidd's bounty. So I think Luffy is much closer to Dracule Mihawk than meets the eye. Later on, its revealed that Buggy is an emperor of the sea and has created something called the cross guild. Mihawk and Crocodile are the real leaders in charge using Buggy as a figurehead. Last but not least, as this chapter closes out we see Sabo calling Monkey D Dragon to set things straight about what really happened during the events of the reverie.
  4. I must admit one piece chapter 1057 was not what I expected. I was extremely disappointed when it was revealed that Yamato wouldn't be joining the crew. Yamato would have fit in perfectly. It feels like an extreme fakout by Oda not to include Yam in the crew and a bit unnecessary. Also it seems like this chapter serves as an official conclusion to the Wano arc. We saw a lot of flashbacks with Momonosuke. Sometimes its easy to forget that he and Kin'emon have been around for nearly a decade. The coolest thing in this chapter for me was Luffy giving his jolly roger to Momonosuke. Now the Straw hats have a lot of territory that's under their protection it makes you wonder if the world government or some other big pirate crew will put their commitment to the test. All in all not much happened this chapter so I'm definitely looking forward to the next one. I can't wait to find out what the next adventure will be.
  5. I think Luffy being able to still level up his haki is pretty cool, it gives us fans something to look forward too. So I think it's great that we've learned that there is a way to cancel future sight via conquerors haki. However, I personally would like to see Luffy start to walk his own path. He gets so much help from all the elders and older adventurers in his development. He needs to develop something that is uniquely his. For example, I love how blackbeard sticks out. He has found some way to harness the power of two devil fruits. He's a rule breaker, he's definitely blazing his own trail. With the confirmation that Luffy has the Nika fruit, it makes you wonder if this will somehow affect his ability to fuse haki with his fruits ability. I don't necessarily understand how that would help but I really feel like he needs to find a way to be unique and distinguish himself from the other powerful guys and it feels like that simply upgrading his haki won't be enough.
  6. I think Chopper is one of the most valuable members of the crew. He is not a top tier fighter but his value is comparable to that of Franky and Robin. The three of them provide essential services for the crews journey. Robin is the archaeologist without her knowledge of history and ability to read poneglyphs, the crew would have little hope of reaching laughtale, Franky is the inventor/shipwright and chopper is the scientist/doctor. When I think about it, its actually a bit unfortunate that Chopper and Franky don't seem to have more a of symbiotic relationship. You would think that two intelligent crew members would have a lot more conversations about their work and bounce ideas off of each other.
  7. Shinobu and Raizo look like complete corpses. I know some people have discussed how greenbull actually seems like the weakest admiral revealed to date, I have to disagree. I think greenbull has shown plenty of power. In addition to being a logia, he can fly, he can cause growth and regeneration to the soil and he can suck the life out of people, causing them to become shriveled corpses near the point of death. I'm a bit disappointed that it seems like Carrot won't be joining the crew but I always like to see the Straw Hats getting a loyal ally in a new territory. Who knows, perhaps Carrot actually turned down her leadership role to join the straw hats. Robin asking Luffy if he wanted Pluton and Luffy just casually saying nah is hilarious but totally in sync with his character. At times I do wish that Luffy would have a little more mastermind/high level planner type to him. He's like the most ambitious character in one piece but has absolutely no plan. While its does make for great entertainment its not very consistent with the mindset of ambitious people. In addition to working hard, ambitious people tend to be detailed oriented, have a certain level of cunning and develop multiple plans to reach their goals. Luffy, Law and Kidd haggling about which direction each of them will head in brought a smile to my face. They really do seem like bickering brothers. What I don't quite understand is why they don't just come out and make a permanent alliance. If I had to guess Kidd will end up having a serious fight against Shanks or Luffy. It feels very obvious to me though, that at some point Law is going to bow out of the competition to reach Laughtale and claim the one piece. There will probably be a critical moment and Law ends up helping the Strawhats. The revelation that Buggy is now an Emperor of the sea is still absolutely ridiculous but at least we now have a better understanding as to why. It seems like Buggy is working with Crocodile and Dracule Mihawk. Although, if I had to guess I suspect that the three of them came to some type of arrangement to allow Buggy to function as the figurehead while Crocodile and Mihawk actually run the organization. Things really do seem to be changing though. Marines now have to worry about bounties being placed on their heads. With all of this chaos, I think these are prime conditions for someone like Coby to really start to rise through the ranks. It really does feel like Coby will reach the rank of admiral at some point. If I had to guess I would imagine that Coby actually ends up as the grand admiral over the entire Navy and he changes the institution for the better. The end of this chapter is where things being to get really interesting. Law throws down a copy of the road poneglyph and gives it to Kidd's crew. This is a bit surprising since the alliance is "over" according to Kidd. Something that he's reiterated multiple times in the last few chapters. But after this bit Killer makes a statement about putting "all their strength into this task" if they want to participate in the war for the one piece. And Kidd mentions finding the man with the burn scar. There is a close up of Law's face which is darkened heavily in shadow. And then a close up on Robin's face which is more or less blank and her speech bubble has a question mark. To me it feels like Robin and Law had an extended conversation after discovering that Pluton was in Wano underwater. It seems likely they've hatched some type of scheme knowing that Luffy wouldn't be interested in doing any type of future planning even though its obviously very necessary. Which is part of the reason Robin asked Luffy if he was interested in Pluton, to which he promptly said no, which served as confirmation of her original assumption and served as a type of signal to proceed with the plot. What if Robin came to an agreement with Law to tow Pluton out of Wano? It obviously can't stay in Wano forever. Caribou overheard them talking about it earlier in the manga. Surely his presence didn't go unnoticed in a room full of Haki users. Robin has to assume the secret is out or that it will get out soon. So there needs to be some contingencies put in place now. Law is a smart guy and likely understands the potential danger as well. If he truly felt like the alliance was over I honestly don't think he would have given the road poneglyph to Kidd. I think he wants to make sure that they all make it to the next big battle and doesn't want Kidd to be left behind. The big worry though is Luffy's relationship to other movers and shakers outside the crew, which brings me back to the close up on Robin's and Law's faces. The" man with the burn scar" that Kidd and Killer are looking for in all likelihood is Sabo. And if it is, Luffy is going to have a huge problem if they go after him in anyway. This could possibly disrupt any future plans they could have about the three crews teaming up again later on, like say against blackbeards' fleet. Plus, we know that Kidd's crew has some bad blood with the red hair pirates(red hair pirates took his arm). My theory is that Law and Robin's plan(if they hatched one) hinges on how Luffy responds to Kidd's actions. My guess is there will be some huge fireworks. The end of this chapter is another Yammato tease about her joining the Strawhat crew. She really needs to go ahead and join! I'm tired of the teases. I've seen some speculation that she won't actually join because there are no more roles on the ship needed. Well to that, I would say Shanks has plenty of crew members Whitebeard had plenty as well. You always need more powerful soldiers/vice captains. I've seen some suggestions that Yammato will join the crew and be like Oden serving as a sort of journalist. In my mind though it feels like Robin should already be fulfilling that role. But I'm not against it. A precedent has been set. Either way though as long as Yammato joins I'll be happy. Last but not least it feels like its past time for Zoro to get some character development. There has been a lot that's happened recently, but Zoro is the only one that hasn't had a huge backstory. I want some answers about when he was confronted by the grim reaper. Everybody was expecting him to have a huge Wano connection, but it seems like we won't be getting any huge backstory scenes from him. Maybe the next island will deliver the goods. But he's over due!
  8. So it appears that the ancient kingdom has actually been located in Wano this whole time! Or perhaps its more accurate to say that Wano is located inside of the borders of the ancient kingdom. What a nice little surprise!
  9. So its confirmed, Ryokugyu eat the woods-woods fruit and is a logia type. I don't know why he thinks he can just walk into Wano and take down Luffy all by himself. I mean everyone that is currently present, were the same people that were able to beat both Kaido and Big Mom. I actually low key want Ryokugyu to somehow reach Luffy and then I want to see Luffy just nonchalantly proceed to wipe the floor with him. But Ryo obviously has some other key role to play. Again, most of us are noticing how Ryo is actually reviving Wano step by step. His wood-wood power seems to be recultivating the soil as he walks. It makes you wonder if him coming to Wano to grab Luffy is just a ruse and he is actually trying to help them. Wouldn't it be cool though, if right after taking down Kaido, Luffy takes down an admiral! He'd make the front page of the news all over again! He'd definitely become public enemy #1, if he isn't already. I also loved how Yamato just comes out of nowhere and hits Ryokugyu(aka greenbull) with her Haki. If there was any doubt as to how strong Yamato is we now have plenty of evidence. She squared off against Kaido and then held her own against an admiral. Curiously enough after Momonosuke engages with Ryokygyu Momo tells Yamato she must not fight and then Oda cuts away to Shanks and his crew! Is Momo telling Yamato not to fight because he needs to prove he can take down an admiral and protect Wano himself? Or is it something to do with the WG engaging with the Straw Hat crew? After seeing this latest scene with Yamato I feel like its almost guaranteed that Yamato joins the crew as the newest member. And then finally Shanks makes an appearance and then proceeds to destroy the hopes of not only his crew but the entire one piece fan base when he announces that instead of going to meet Luffy now they are going to go on to claim the one piece! Does this mean that we'll eventually get a one on one battle between Shanks and Luffy or perhaps a crew vs crew battle between the straw hats and the red hair pirates? I think that Luffy and Shanks relationship has been built up for so long that at some point they are likely to clash or fake fight to just kind of test each other out. Some people are predicting that Shanks will actually die before meeting Luffy and this will be a triggering event for Luffy. Only time will tell but I really want to see them meet and discuss some cool stuff at least once. I'm glad to have one piece back its been too long!
  10. My favorite one piece theory was that Luffy's DF wasn't paramecia but instead it was actually a mythical zoan fruit. And it turns out that theory was spot on! I also like the theory that One Piece is not actually something to be discovered but more like something to be created. Some people think that Joyboy has the power to actually pull all the islands to gather to make the world one piece. As in one landmass. While this doesn't necessarily sound like something that Luffy would want to do, but we now know that with his awakened powers, he technically seems like he has the ability to do that now.
  11. Well this was shocking. The world government placed a 3 billion beri bounty on Luffy, Eustass and Law. These bounties feel a little bit absurd considering the fact that Luffy is the one the brought down Kaido and that Kid and Law teamed up to bring down Big Mom. It makes you feel like Big Mom was a lot more powerful than we initially believed. Also it's a little strange that Luffy's bounty would be in line with there's especially with Luffy's awakening of his mythical zoan. Perhpas its part of the the government's plot to still try and keep that underwraps. I have a feeling they won't be able to keep things underwraps for long since the new admiral Ryukugyu is on the island. Ryukugyu looks like a beast! It seems like he easily took down Queen and King without breaking a sweat. And he's headed straight for Luffy! Things are about to get interesting very quickly. I think his entire role will be to show just how far Luffy has come. In the past an admiral showing up has meant certain defeat. But with confirmation that Zoro has the offensive fire power to harm Kaido and Luffy's Joyboy awakening you'd have to think that Luffy is going to wipe the floor with Ryokugyu. Three other things of note. Buggy the clown is a Yonko now? What in the world is happening? What in the world has happened? Buggy's devil fruit ability allows for some interesting scenarios upon awakening but even so, I can't imagine a power boost large enough to make him a Yonko. There has to be some exigent circumstances. He must have gained a powerful weapon, stole a powerful item or made some kind of powerful pirate alliance. Buggy becoming a yonko is so hilarious and just like Oda to do something like that. I wonder if it has something to do with Shanks going to visit the five elders at the world government about a year or so ago. Nico Robin has gotten the former shogun(oden's father) to confirm that Pluto is indeed on Wano. Will we be seeing the ancient weapon soon? And last but not least, on page 4 we get a Sabo sighting. It looks like Sabo is rich or at least is in some type of highly recognized position of authority. If the government actually captured Sabo and have brainwashed him or somehow forced him to do what they want, Luffy is going to be enraged. Lots of stuff to look forward to, I can't wait to continue the journey a month from now!
  12. No big reveals this chapter. Just more of Luffy showing off how ridiculous his powers have become. I don't like the fact that Luffy is taking tons of damage. I love the huge Haki fist coming out of the clouds though. I' ready for Luffy to finally beat Kaido. I need some more story elements moving forward.
  13. Luffy is able to grab lightning now. At this rate Luffy is becoming more powerful by the panel Its important to note though, that we haven't seen Luffy use his awakened powers on a huge scale like that of Donflamingo's bird cage, Big mom's soul abilities or Kaido levitating an entire island while engaged in battle. At the end of this fight I can definitely see Luffy doing something absurd like causing Onigishama to bounce when it falls and it ends up in a completely different part of the world. That would be epic. Zoro is still out and we still don't have any answers about the grim reaper but at this point I think its safe to say that Zoro is somehow fighting death or is in the process of forging a black blade or some combination of both. Raizo using ninja arts to unleash a torrent of water and put out the fire was wild and totally unexpected.
  14. So we have confirmation that Luffy can now give the environment properties of rubber I think its likely he'll be able to do that to the sea as well. Also its now evident that Luffy can give people the properties of rubber, when he stretched Kaido's body out(after he swallowed Luffy whole) and he also punched Kaido in the face stretching out his face in the process. It makes you wonder if Luffy will be able to extend the properties of rubber to inanimate objects and have them retain their new form after doing so. Luffy's awakening seems to emphasize the heart as the most important aspect to keeping his "Joyboy" form going. I suspect in time, with additional training, he will be able to keep it going longer.
  15. The Gum Gum fruit is actually the Zoan-type human-human fruit mythical type, model Nika! Zoan fruits have wills of their own? It makes me wonder if there won't be some type of inner dialogue going on later. By awakening, this fruit brings Luffy greater physical strength and freedom. Also did Luffy's Haki go up another level? Some of Kaido's minions were knocked out and wondered aloud if it was supreme king Haki. I feel like the weak ones would have already been knocked out if that were the case. It seems like Luffy grabbed the ground and gave it the properties of rubber, he may have been able to reflect Kaido's blast using this power. It seems highly likely that Luffy will be able to gift the properties of rubber to anything he touches. It makes me wonder if Luffy will be able to cross the sea without a ship, similar Aokiji.

  16. Law and Kid continue to show out. Big Mom started to get back up, tried to scare the kiddies but they weren't budging an inch. They put her right back down. Tag team FTW. Now according to the manga, it looks like this will go down as a win for Law and Kid but its still pretty clear that neither of them is on the same level as Big Mom. Neither one deserves to be an emperor, so I wonder if the world government will make a secondary classification for them. Luffy is obviously going to be next up against Kaido. And I'll be honest it's still hard for me to envision Luffy beating Kaido 1 on 1. Its frustrating to see Law and Kid use their awakened abilities but Luffy is still learning Haki on the fly and hasn't even reached his awakening, yet he's supposed to be the strongest one. Luffy is going to have to awaken sometime during this fight. That's the only way he can win and still somehow manage to fight off the world government that is still trying to snatch Nico Robin and seems poised to takeout whoever is the loser in the fight. Last but not least, you gotta love Momonosuke's mention of Zunesha's crime and Joy Boy at the end. It seems like we'll be getting a One Piece history lesson pretty soon.
  17. Wow, what a double team by Law and Kid. Law seems to have crazy offensive firepower now. He was always strong but man it seems like he's pulling out a new move every 50 chapters. Luffy on the other hand is still stuck using different variations of punches and kicks. Kid meanwhile is using some kind of cobbled together cannon. Im not sure what to make of that but Big Mom definitely felt that one. Ultimately though I still don't feel like these two have enough to take down Big Mom. Maybe enough to knock her out of the battle temporarily giving Luffy enought time to figure out a way to beat Kaido. But Big Mom's stamina is otherwordly and Law and Kid seem frail by comparison. I just don't see how they could go toe to toe with her and win right now.
  18. Big Mom is still causing havoc. I really thought Kidd and Law were gonna be down for the count. I started imagining Big Mom headed up top to join Kaido in finishing off Luffy and then Luffy finally undergoes his awakening. It seems like we'll just continue to get more of the same though. I think Luffy is overdue for another flashy moment. I feel like his awakening is not far off. How else could he possibly defeat Kaido?
  19. First things first. I like many others loved the cover art for this chapter. Zoro looks great. I just need him to do a little more. Many of the other first mates on this cover are absolute beasts and I feel like Zoro is still holding a card or two in his back pocket. Sanji stepped up in this chapter, and made a decision not to use the RAID suit, good for him. I'm not caring much for these these little skirmishes between the big battles but if its got Sanji in them its hard to complain. Law and Kid battling Big Mom actually feels like a more epic battle than Kaido. I know Kaido has the mystique of being unkillable but Big Mom is crazy powerful and influential. In terms of name recognition it still kinda feels like Big Mom and her crew are still a bigger deal although Kaido maybe considered more dangerous due to his Zoan and underworld connections. Two weeks wait for a new chapter is painful but I understand why, these panels are crazy detailed, packed with art and dialogue..
  20. What in the world is going on with Sanji? It doesn't seem to be anything negative if anything its a positive. Just tack on one additional ability for Sanji. Zoro is still my fave non Luffy Straw Hat crew member but I don't want Sanji to fall to far behind power scaling wise. I'm not really impressed by the whole Big Mom Kidd fight. Kidd was kinda cool early on. I know he is a strong Haki user but I really don't have a strong interest in seeing him beat Big Mom. I'm not opposed to it but there has been no real set up for it. But ultimately I want to see the big heavyweight fight between Luffy and Kaido. No more interruptions, commercial breaks, or timeouts. Let's get to it!
  21. It seems like there is some kind of grand secret about the gum-gum fruit that Luffy eat. Perhaps this is set up for Luffy for when he engages Kaido for a 3rd time. We may see Luffy's awakening! Its been a long time coming. The time feels about right too. Also Zoro's current predicament is hilarious. I can't wait to see what else he does in this arc.
  22. I think Zoro looks absolutely ridiculous bandaged up like that. I like that his face is still uncovered though. I can't help but to think that it would be really cool if he got surrounded by a bunch low level henchman opened his eye and knocked them all out with Haoshoku Haki. The other major event of the chapter is that it seems like Nami is about to go head to head with Ulti. It's been awhile since we've seen here cut loose so I'm interested to see how much she's grown.
  23. So now the true battle begins! Luffy finally has the means to fight Kaido 1 on 1. And then...we cut away!😁 One day we'll get an entire uninterrupted fight. One sweet day! Another big development, is Big Mom going after Kaido's crew! Now we have 3 different yonko in the same place, going at it. I expect there to be absolute destruction and mayhem everywhere. At this point of Luffy's development, it seems almost pointless for him to use a weapon. If you can attack somebody without making contact what's the point? With Haki, in 1 on 1 battles, devil fruit abilities and weapons feel almost entirely pointless. I'm hoping that there are still a few more surprises in store for us in this battle.
  24. Finally! It looks like Luffy is about to fight for real. Big Mom is out of the picture, Traffy is down, Zoro is down, Kid and Killer are off screen. Just Luffy and Kaido!😁πŸ”₯ I love that Zoro got a clean hit in on Kaido. It seems like there is some debate as to how. Was it color of supreme king that Zoro accidentally used? Or was it some type of unknown power related to his 9 sword style?
  25. At some point I feel like Zoro/Zolo(he'll always be Zoro to me!πŸ˜…) Is gonna open that left eye and its gonna be the beginning of the end! This was the perfect chapter to do it but he still manages to shine without letting loose. One day though, I know its coming.
