I swear Panda mistranslated again.
In the original Japanese, Brook said 戻る気がありません which should means "He doesn't have any will to return."
He told Sanji that Pudding has a wee-wee.
So, is the flashback over now? Sanji is already gone, so it'll probably switch to the SH's point of view back at Zou.
Hopefully SOMETHING happens there, I can't wait to see more of Sanji's side.
I thought we already had her reveal in Fishman Island, but this silhouette and the one she had a few chapters ago look nothing like what we saw in Fishman Island. Is Oda planning to completely redesign her or something?
So Sanji has fire manipulating powers confirmed? I always thought his "leg on fire" thing was an odd powerup.
So, given that Brook seems to know about the Vinsmokes, next chapter is going to be Luffy's point of view and Brook talking about Sanji's family then?
I don't think we'll see Sanji in a little bit. Or maybe Oda will have some chapters of his standalone adventures there. I expect Pudding to be revealed not too late, anyways.
You are a special kind of special, aren't you?
I did, but I just didn't think cigarettes usually combust like that even when lit.
i think it looks a lot alike, we just didn't get hair at fishman island.
SANJI IS A DEAD MAN
STRAW HAT LUFFY WILL BUST DOWN BIG MAMA'S DOOR AND YELL
GIVE ME BACK MY FUCKING COOK!!!!!!!!!!!
OHHHHH LUFFY MAY ACTUALLY COMMIT MURDER THIS TIME AROUND, I THOUGHT DOFFY GOT ON HIS NERVES. BUT TAKING A CAPTAIN'S COOK IS UNFORGIVABLE
LUFFY WILL BECOME A YONKO AFTER THIS ARC, FORGET KAIDO, LUFFY TAKING BIG MAMA TO DINNER AND SHE'S ON THE MENU
LUFFY'S GONNA TOSS HER SALAD
Looking at Nekomamushi in the pic, it's left arm seems to be roughly the same size as the right one, except all bandaged up.
Do you guys think Chopper found the missing arm and reattached it?
How the fuck is Capone powerful? Literally in New World this bitches DF powers are pointless. He can't be admiral level or even vice admiral level.
Anyone with Haki would fuck him up if he put them inside of him.
This bitch is a got damn Looney Tune Character
>He can't be admiral level or even vice admiral level
Of course not, he's not a marine.
>god damn Looney Tune Character
You mean like Luffy, who pumps air into his bones by blowing into his thumb?
I think pudding will be hot, simply because it'd be too easy for her to be ugly. she not only be hot, but she'll also be someone sanji will like as a person, or at least respect, she'll want to stop serving mom and so on
I swear One Piece is so fucking retarded, Once again our "Cat Thief" Nami does NOTHING, meanwhile Brook who's DF is as useless as a sack of bricks just serves as a spectator.
Why didn't chopper use his powers and grow enormous in Capone? Wouldn't that have literally killed him?!
Why didn't Sanji go Black Leg and fuck his shit up? These guys have been in rougher spots than some castle fruit eating wanna be mofia bitch to a fat woman who eats people.
Sanji could have jumped out of Capone with everyone else and let Big Bad Kitty fuck Capone's shit UP.
>Big Mom will destroy Fishman Island if you don't comply
>Vinsmoke family will destroy the East Blue if you don't comply
>The navy will send all three admirals and high tier vice admirals if you don't suck my dick
I'm getting the feeling Sanji's family is organized crime, not royalty. I think Pudding will be the 3 eyed girl. I can even see a scene like Luffy and co coming to get Sanji and Sanji then announcing his formal leave of the strawhat crew to prevent them from being part of Big Mam's fleet.
In the panel where it shows their loss of limbs, it seems Jack cut off his arm right below the elbow joint. In last chapter's panel Nekomamushi seems to have a great deal of arm below the elbow, so I think Chopper might have reattached his arm.
Of course it's still hard to say given that Inuarashi wasnt shown from the waist down after the Jack fight, and because Oda's sometimes wonky scaling.
This can't be actually fucking happening, right?
Why Sanji what the fuck?
I like characters like Capone. They are not necessary that powerful, but they are respected leaders who get the job done.
But anyway, have you seen the tank Capone? We don't know the extent of his powers yet.
>we'll never hear his kyaas again
>Once again our "Cat Thief" Nami does NOTHING,
Not much she could do. I'll agree with anyone who says its lame that she couldn't break out of the chains by picking the lock or whatever, but still nothing she could do inside Capone.
>Why didn't chopper use his powers and grow enormous in Capone?
I thought it was obvious the chains were seastone since Caeser could just turn into gas and leave if they weren't.
>Why didn't chopper use his powers and grow enormous in Capone?
Even if he went Monster Point, considering the sclaing down that happens, I don't think he'd be big enough for that.
>Why didn't Sanji go Black Leg and fuck his shit up?
Seastone cuffs on the SHs, Capone had Nami, Brook and Chopper as hostages, he couldn't just fuck shit up, when Capone could simply sink Nami to his balls
>Sanji could have jumped out of Capone with everyone else and let Big Bad Kitty fuck Capone's shit UP.
Probably related to the secret he was told by the Capone Henchmann. He was only shown willing to go to the wedding after that.
>people actually believe that Sanji will die in the upcoming arc
> meanwhile Brook who's DF is as useless as a sack of bricks just serves as a spectator
every DF user will be useless if they're tied with kairoseki chain
>Why didn't chopper use his powers and grow enormous in Capone? Wouldn't that have literally killed him?!
>Why didn't Sanji go Black Leg and fuck his shit up? These guys have been in rougher spots than some castle fruit eating wanna be mofia bitch to a fat woman who eats people.
you cannot underestimate a supernova
>Sanji could have jumped out of Capone with everyone else and let Big Bad Kitty fuck Capone's shit UP.
are you retarded?? sasuga speedreader
>Oda has been making the story grow progressively darker and edgier
Enel's going to smite her fat ass and take her spot as Yonkou.
>turns his lower half into tank treads
How the fuck does that make any sense?
So powerful indeed,
>complete womanizer in the past
Don't take it from me, but Dr.Vegapunk's creation is a machine that can swap other people's DF's for different ones by controlling the energy connected to DF's when eaten by the User.
Want to know why Kuma lost his powers after being turned completely into a robot? Vegapunk still has it.
Loved this page so much. My nigga Sanji stand by his captain.
>There are people that actually thought Pekoms died
but that "Carpet" is supposed to be Capones Body which he can manipulate freely.He could have just extinguished it using that very carpet but no, he really went off his chair and put it out himself.
Who says Seastone can't be affected by DF powers? Law cut some cuffs during PH iirc. Once they're on a user they can't (no powers to actively use), but if they don't touch it themselves whose to say they can't?
That stuff that implied Brook knows who they are seems like Panda being Panda, considering he later implies he doesn't know who they are when he talks about Sanji getting to East Blue.
You people never learn do you? Its safe right now to assume all of you idiots above me read the MangaPanda version because you just can't wait for the Mangastream translation.
You thirsty motherfuckers, why do you hurt yourselves like this. We all know how bad they suck but you just NEED to get that dose of One Piece. Fucking Crack Addicts, I bet my ass if someone told you that Oda asked Jump to stop Online English translations you fuckers would make a petition or fly to Japan to keep reading.
Patience is a virtue, that obviously lost its way in humanity's egotistical assumption of mind and body when it comes to media and arts.
Patience these nuts you mother fucker.
Since I saw his name come up somewhere in this thread, it got me wondering again:
What exactly were Bartholomew Kuma's powers? (the bear-paw send-flying extract-pain thingy)
>only reading one translation
If you don't read Viz, MS and MP to get a proper idea, then you can't really be saying that.
So, giant cat guy did lose the left paw, right? Did dog guy lose anything, too? I don't think I saw it but it would seem kinda unbalanced if the equally strong fighters would now stop being equally strong.
The usage of Caesar this week had me laughing hard.
On a scale from 1 to 10 how obvious is it that this dickface has the salamander mythological zoan fruit.
If you look closely, you can see half Inuarashi's leg gone..
>mfw patiently waiting for Bonney to marry Sanji
The only thing that resembles a salamander/lizard is his long tongue. Which isn't even split.
Maybe charmeleon or some shit but I don't think it's salamander.
Also, ain't mythical. wat
No, even Platon meant the actual salamander when talking about the thing. People thought it had something to do with fire for some reason, and that it was born from flames - much like toads just randomly appearing out of mud.
That makes me somewhat sad. We won't see them clash at their full power.
Also, it kinda feels like the Zou arc was... somewhat skipped. Like, it was supposed to be there, but it was cut at last minute and replaced by something that sums up its most important points so now we are getting to the next arc.
I assume a new villain will appear, possibly a weakened Jack, and be finished off in a few chapters, the story with Momonosuke will be "resolved", Jack will be defeated by Luffy and we can move on.
>mfw patiently waiting for Bonney to marry Sanji
Are we all going to ignore Capone's good taste in pens? That is one sweet pen. That guy doesn't fuck around with weak-ass pens. Capone knows how to live with style.
I liked this chapter. Even the sheer fact we've seen another silhouette of big mom would be enough for me.
can't wait to see what the strongest mama's members look like. I'm expecting some seriously freaky guys.
People discussed in previous threads whether he was producing fire out of his hands. We don't actually see a lighter. It's also suspicious that he's part of the Firetank Pirates.
That's generally how you light something, if he had an ability that created fire out of his hands then there's no need to shield it but I guess I could see it being done as a red herring to make you think it's a lighter.
Shit then who is producing those based pens? Is someone with the Pen Pen Fruit running around and distributing these heavenly sticks like the secret santa of writing instruments because if it's true then I am mad jelly of this lifestyle.
What's that? You're trying to punch/shoot/cut me? Enjoy getting turned into an ant, barely felt it, who's the manlet now bitch?
Think I don't see you? I have 20 snipers aiming at all directions at all times, no use running.
See that nuke that just destroyed Zou? I can carry 50 of those wherever I go, I'm a literal island destroyer.
You're fucked kiddo
There's a difference between surmising something and actually knowing it happened. People have been calling Sanji went to Big Mom's from as far as a month ago, doesn't mean we don't still need to know how it happened
Sure. I don't want to come off as whiny, and in that sense maybe I shouldn't have bothered posting in the first place, but it would have been nice if we got a bit of something to chew on w/r/t the Vinsmoke family or Pudding.
His knuckles are pointing downwards, so the flame is coming from the palm of his hand, or maybe his fingertips
I was going to say that the fire was coming from his tattoo, and it was like the things Kaidou's crew could do, but now I don't think that's the case
so if vinsmokes are so important why do they want sanji to marry big moms daughter? as a punishment?
or was it big mom that made the wedding and sanjis wanted poster only alive? i dont think she has that kind of power
Who could or would cash in a bounty this high? And how?
Would you walk to some backwater marine outpost and say "Hello, my name is Shanks, and I've caught this guy you're looking for" and expect them to hand over the money? 1 billion berry in cash?
The long game Oda has been playing is absolutely insane
what does he know????
also i didnt realize hancock was mentioned before her introduction
>mfw never even thought about how you get from north blue to east blue
>Of course if your name is Shanks and you try that it might not work out so well
See that's the problem, who else would even be strong enough to take this guy down?
Anyone who could achieve such a feat would have the same trouble, I imagine.
There are bounty hunters so I'm sure it's just like that. I doubt you could turn in the bounty for a yonkou though, the marines would probably determine you're too dangerous so you either join them or be imprisoned.
He said: "Hey, actually this Purin-chan is incredibly cute, you have to meet her"
I'm assuming pirates don't cash in on other pirates
But if they did, wouldn't it be best to have a resident bounty hunter/liason to take them to the marines. Shanks could always call up mihawk and split it slightly
yeah i guess it could have been either he said that the same person that arranged the wedding arranged for his safe capture. Big mom was my first thought but the family makes more sense.
Why is Sanji only this manly sometimes and not 80% of the time?
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little rookie? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Big Mom pirates, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret missions on her ship, and I have a bounty of 300 million Belly. I am trained in devil fruit warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire Big Mom crew. You are nothing to me but just another rookie. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Blue Sea, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Den-Den Mushi? Think again, rookie. As we speak I am contacting my underworld network of spies across the New World and your location is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my hands. Not only my crew is extensively trained in armed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal inside of me and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the Grand Line, capisce? If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit tank tracks all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, rookie.
So who is the person that has arranged the marriage and "Only Alive" poster?
It must be a Vinsmoke, right? Probably his father, or older brother or something like that. I'm convinced that the Vinsmokes are a family of gangsters/underworld criminals that have deep connections to the WG.
It would suit Sanji equally or even more than the whole noble thing.
It's a case of something planted to be used later, similar to Laboon's crew (there's no Brook in the flashback).
We've also got Franky and Nami's parents to look forward to. I think Franky's are most likely famous pirates, Nami's were probably nobles of some kind.
I keep seeing people hoping that Caesar will become a crewmate, but it's just wishful thinking, here's why.
Oda hasn't built him up with a single sympathetic trait. Whenever he does good things, he does so against his will and under threat, and Oda is making it very clear that the crew despises him as a whole and don't care about what happens to him, it's not even a "you're not a good person, but I'm gonna be the better man and not let you get hurt" thing, I don't think Luffy himself would save him if he was getting executed in front of him while pleading for his life.
Even with Robin and Franky there were signs early on that they weren't actually as bad as they looked. People like Caesar for his reactions and he's a fun character, but Oda certainly isn't writing him up to be a crewmate, far from it. If he was, there would have been signs earlier. Oda is writing him as a complete piece of shit that no one feels sorry for or sympathizes with because right in his introductory arc he was built up as this unscrupulous maniac who doesn't care about the suffering of anyone but himself. There isn't any sort of possible scenario where he redeems himself anymore, there was healing the Minks but even that was done unwillingly, he is too blatantly evil for that. I'd sooner believe Doffy becoming a crewmate than him.
He will definitely be gone after this arc and everyone in-story will be glad he's gone. It sucks because he's great fun and has cool powers, but if there's any new crewmates in the near future he isn't one of them.
>Nami suddenly cares about Sanji after knowing he came from rich family.
I think he'll show up sometimes in the future. I can see him being an enemy to the SH that's not that much of an enemy.
Hell, I could see him belonging to Luffy's fleet in a way or another. But as a crewmate, yeah, no fucking way.
So it's confirmed that Capone is shit right?
I mean this chapter has basically proven how much of a coward and shit he his. 1. He can only talk shit since he has big mom backing 2. Most of his shit talk is about how strong big mom is 3. He can only really use his men to fight and if the opponent is to strong he runs like a bitch 4. He's just shit who if he didn't have numbers sanji would of BTFO
It doesn't even seems like the marines even bother fighting the Yonkou if they don't need to, I can't remember it even being mentioned.
Wouldn't they find it easier to just alter Sanji's poster instead of going against Big Mom.
he would make for interesting crewmate
he could stay a prisoner of straw hats but during arcs they could force him to fight or he could be fighting people that hate him and want him dead etc
If Eustass and the others get on this thinking Luffy wants that Yonkou status it'll be pretty hype
You must cross over RED LINE. Remember? Huge fuck ass mountains that go beyond clouds.
That much is logical since giants are expected to have a long lifespan. Brook is a human and looked like a normal living person when his last bounty poster was issued. Although it is possible that the government was aware he ate a resurrection fruit and decided his poster should remain permanently active.
That won't happen because that's not how the SHs roll.
It's been shown very clearly that they want him off their backs and off their everything. If they weren't the protags they probably would have thrown him in the ocean already.
Mythical traits were ascribed to it, but the thing itself was never mythical. That's like saying that the fox is a fabled animal because in some fables there were smart foxes.
And to cross the Red Line, you need to either go through Reverse Mountain, go down Fishman Island, or cross through Mariejois
And if you had the authority to go through Mariejois, you would probably have the authority to change a bounty to Only Alive
So, what do we know about Vinsmoke? Try to help me out, anons.
- They are a powerfull family, most likely noble;
- They are from north blue;
- They can easily pass throught the red line;
- They dont seem to be tenryuubito, they only live in Mariejoa;
- They are widely known;
- They are terrible/cruel
- Most likely, they play in both Marine and Pirate side
>probably went through reverse mountain
Reverese mountain is a one way stree anon. Even if you be able to somehow sail against the current rushing down from the top youd still be hit by the ships who're trying to enter grand line.
At least we can discuss the new chapter in full enthusiasm while you make posts about patience.
plz no bully, caesar did nothing wrong
Fuck. That's exactly how I felt.
I keep on reading his lines with Monarchs voice.
>people kept calling Sanji an irrelevant character from the beginning
>just guy who smokes and cooks
>all for 15 years
I never doubted him for one second.
Huh. Pretty big flame, maybe the mythical salamander thing isn't bullshit.
There are people in the world who get really strong without joining the Marines or becoming a Pirate. Like Fujitora, who was so strong before he was drafted that they immediately made him an admiral. So unless you think Jack can defeat admiral level people, there's at least a few law-abiding people out there strong enough to collect a 1 Billion bounty.
I'm still waiting for the chapter where Enel shows up out of nowhere with his stupid airship.
I want him back.
I remember the last time someone thought a pervy idiot wasn't important.
This actually isn't, I think. Let's look at what we were given: Sanji's first seen on a boat working a kitchen job, no parents in sight. That basically screams stowaway.
Then there's the whole North Blue thing. It basically demands the question of how he got in East Blue (people were actually discussing this before).
Also the scene with Kalifa REALLY raises some questions.
I think Oda had Sanji's heritage and past set up a long time ago.
It's really unfortunate westerners demonize arranged marriage so much.
Mainly because we always hear about it is negative connotation:
When muslims sell their girls for citizenship marriages.
When hollywood TV drama cook up some political convenient marriages.
In reality it could be something as innocent as your parents introducing you to the girl of this family their once knew, without any forcing.
>I think Oda had Sanji's heritage and past set up a long time ago.
of course he has, he's Oda after all. Even though he is hated as fuck here for some reason Sanji still is one of the central members of the straw hats, the least Oda had in mind was "I'll make him a prince of some far away country one day" but knowing how he operates he probably had the whole story already planned out when we fucking met him.
The problem with Sanji is that he was being used really poorly after Enies Lobby. Especially after the timeskip, he got reduced to a joke character with his nosebleeds and okama jokes.
Instead of having a somewhat of a threat as an opponent during FI he gets to kick a giant blowfish and has to share the victory with Jinbe.
Then he jobs agaisnt both Vergo and Doffy.
Being a Sanji fag has been hell for years now, it's about damn time we see him bounce back.
I don't know why you'd mention the scene with Kalifa, it makes you think of how he said he was raised not to hit women. Whereas in the SBS Oda says that was just Sanji's pride and the truth is that he is physically incapable of hitting women, which is much stronger evidence for something like what you said
although given how much he seems to absolutely hate slavery it could even have been a female slave belonging to his family that inspired it.
Komodo dragons were named after the mythological creature of the dragon (and even that only in english). They had little influence on the fire lizard of european mythology, seeing how they do not live in europe.
>Law is D
>Sanji is son of noble from big kingdom
What's next? Nami dead parents is celestial dragon? Zoro family is noble samurai from Wano?
He "died" without the Marines knowing it. Also, he is 90 yet, and people in One Piece can live to 120+, see Dr, Kureha.
Didn't Kizaru say something like "Bounties don't expire, especialy those of the Roger Pirates" to Rayleigh?
He may have had a basic idea but it's clearly just a slab for use later. It's pretty common in manga.
Ever heard of the Vinsmocks before?
According to Brook they're relatively famous, yet we hadn't heard of them until last chapter.
Yeah I know! I mean check out those crazy blonde locks. Will they ever stop rubbing this royalty=blonde meme into our face???
To be fair, none of the Strawhats had a threatening opponent on FI.
And he did not exactly job against Doffy, seeing how Doffy was the final boss of that arc.
Losing against Vergo I give you, though wasn't that more like a draw?
>>Zoro family is noble samurai from Wano?
>"I'm bored. I'll go fishing."
>"ok Zoro but please don't get lost again"
>"I ain't retarded dad, I'll be back by noon."
>got lost so hard he came out in east blue
why the fuck would that be a bad thing anon?
>That shit with Jinbe was probably just to show that they're on par with each other
Seeing that everyone here tardscreams how much of a jobber Sanji is I almost thought I was the only one who saw this the same way. You restored my faith in humanity anon.
I see both of them as jobbing, you get someone who hasnt proved themselves in combat against someone who the readers know that is capable, have the second have problems/lose agaisnt the first so that the readers know that he is the real deal.
Sanji has had the worst time when it comes to being a tool to help bring plot points to the reader, let's not forget that the purpose of that stupid, overplayed nosebleed joke was to bring that blood donation law into play.
I've been literally saying this every time people bring up the salamander/fire fruit thing and nobody listens. I've given up by this point since most of these people's tinfoil hats block out common sense.
>haven't read OP in months
>Sanji getting married
I'm positive some anons had predictions about this long before, but still. I hope the bride is Sanji's perfect woman and has cooking skill to match his own. Kinda like that one filler chick.
It will make him running away all the more sweet.
Also, thread theme:
>people seriously don't pick up on Luffy/Sanji parallels throughout the manga that make it pretty obvious thematically that Sanji has to be the son of a World Noble
Donflamingo was double teamed and needed to be severely injured before Luffy could take him in Gear 4th and that still wasn't enough. He needed time to rest to get recharged again to finish him off.
Donflamingo needed to go full out with someone else besides Luffy.
>I hope the bride is Sanji's perfect woman and has cooking skill to match his own
Most likely she'll be a fat pig who likes eating the food he makes. Match made in hell
Oh come on u silly boy, all and all, every SH cares for eachother, nothing to do with wealth.
Chopper comes from a long lineage of pedigree Celestial Dragon reindeer pets that are fed Devil Fruits to serve as additional bodyguards.
His father Tony Tony Prancer sacrificed himself to get him away from their owners and smuggle him away on a ship to Drum with his mother Comet. She managed to get to a group of wild reindeer before dying shortly after because of not being able to adapt to the climate after living all her life in luxury.
I feel like that's just too easy though. Okama Island was great because it was just something I don't think anyone could have predicted. Unless it were a lucky guess. The bride should be an extreme of something, but ugly would be bland.
U cannot go to East Blue from North Blue thru Fishman Island. One can only go thru R.M.
That's not what the parallel would be like though.
The opposite of a world noble is a pirate, not a revolutionary.
A revolutionary is an underground organisation that's aimed at causing an uprising against the government, so the opposite of a revolutionary would be an underground organisation aimed at defending the government or opposing pirates.
Sanji confirmed for being part of an assassin family.
Yeah, I guess.
The way I'd like it to go is for her to be literally perfect for him in every way, but he has to turn the offer down and make up for it to Big Mam in some way in order to return to his crew. It would be great in that it adds strength to Sanjis character since he's finally got what he always seems to want, but he has to face up to the fact that his crew needs him more than he needs to bang a hottie.
There was barely a clash with Crocodile.
I could give you Smoker but let's not forget that during the arc he was showcased to have fallen behind Luffy and had his face kicked in by Vergo moments earlier, at that point defeating Smoker didnt look that much of a feat for me.
Did Niggerstream and Panda insert new lines or did Oda rewrite the dialogue? I'm looking at the original chapter and Sanji doesn't do any of that "oh n-nevermind it doesn't matter" shit after Usopp talks to him
You can't do even that with the rapids going up the mountain and down only into Grand Line
honestly he went through enough shit those two years. I really hope the girl isn't to fucked up. Never mind all that though he won't even marry her because he will meet princess Viola at reverie.
i found two translations where he adds "but whatever" after "i grew up in east blue"
