This Kaidou guy is becoming more and more appealing as the story goes on.
The guys working for him actually seem both competent and ruthless without being mustache twirling imbeciles.
Jack and Drake appear to have serious Balls and a sense of initiative that rivals Blackbeard.
Plus he's the strongest being in the world, suicides for the lulz and wants to start the greatest war of all time.
What's not to like?
Who's gonna replace him now that he left the crew and Luffy isn't interested in getting him back?
Jinbei is less of a jobber and swims even faster. Fills his role perfectly. Plus he probably knows how to cook fishes like no one else.
So Jack is Mammoth zoan confirmed. Still pissed we didn't find out what actually happened to Sanji, although he isn't dead. Also a bit wank that they literally just counterattacked with generic attacks and damaged Big Mom's ship, AND managed to escape. I was expecting something more.
Really, really glad Sanji wasn't kidnapped though. That would have been yet another nail in the coffin that is Post-TS Sanji's feats. Let's hope he's trailing Jack to bring back Raizou or something.
One day he reaches one of the most elusive Islands in the New World and goes up against an entire kingdom to find one man.
The next day he assaults 4 Marine Battleship with 3 legends on board, sinks 2 and manage to survive.
That guy just never rests.
Jack is more worthy of becoming Pirate king than Luffy.
I was hoping for an adventure on Big Mom's gigantic ship followed by a daring escape, then shenanigans with Capone, then going to Zou and more shenanigans.
But apparently Oda is too much of a hack to come up with complex developments and Big Mom's threat was reduced to two pages of sending a generic attack then running away like it's the easiest shit they ever did.
The question that stands now more than ever, though, is what the fuck is the deal with the three samurai and Mononosuke or whatever his name is? There's obviously something insanely important about them with regards to both Wano and Kaidou, but the three of them seem so pointless and goofy. Oda's playing the long game like FUCK with these temporary companions, like Vivi on steroids or something.
Anyone else think it further serves to remove One Piece from being 'just another battle shounen'? The plot shit Oda weaves into every chapter is more like an epic fantasy saga done through drawings. fuk yea oda
i really don't get what people expected.
Many people called a flashback 2 weeks ago. Now we even got to know that Sanji is not dead (everyone knew that anyway, but oda didn't even keep pretending that he is) and he's also no captured.
I didn't expect that we would know so much about sanji after this chapter.
I understand what you're saying, but this was a way to show that the crew has some unique powers (Nami's wheater control, Chopper's monster point and Sunny as a unique ship). I think this was just to show that they are capable of something by themselves.
>I was hoping for an adventure on Big Mom's gigantic ship followed by a daring escape, then shenanigans with Capone, then going to Zou and more shenanigans.
How can someone have such unrealistic expactations?
>complex developments and plenty of stretched out story in Dressrosa
"fuck you Oda go suck a cock, don't drag this shit out any longer"
>Big Moms attack (Big Mom very likely wasn't even on the ship) is held short
"fuck you Oda go suck a cock, we need a timeskip for about 10 chapters where they fuck around on the ship, steal Big Moms Dildos and kick more shit in on Zou!"
God damn I love these designs this arc.
>Franky looking handsome with the hipster cut.
>Brook has a way better design than his default time-skip outfit.
>Robin is cute.
>Nami looked good in the flashback and in the new black dress.
>Zoro back to his classic look.
I am pretty happy desu senpai
>Opportunistic citizen crying and running
>Dwarves doing unimportant shit
>Interesting fights being cut to make room for more crying
>Law edging edge's edge
>More rebecca crying
Interesting development indeed.
The only thing missing was Marines crying.
How did Shanks even measure up against other emperors in the first place?
That scene where the SH defend from big mom...the most bullshitty thing I've seen in OP for months.
1. "Hey, that's a pretty strong crew, known for taking down a samurai and a renowned ability of deflecting cannonballs. Let's shoot some of those at them, even though they've become useless at that point in time."
2. "We're one of the 4 strongest crews in the world, currently on our main ship, but sadly lacking any ability to defend from cannonballs. Of course, no member of us shown in the present and future will is capable of doing such a thing, especially not a guy with a defensive tortoise DF."
It makes big moms crew look extremely incompetent, especially when dealing with the weaker half of the SH.
Also, has it ever been explained why cannonballs made of steel have a notorious need to explode in contact? It's not like Mr.5 donated his blood for the iron in production.
so what happened to Sanji in the end?
He went aboard Big Moms ship to distract them?
He's actually a jobber. He probably got in because Whitebeard liked him and the other two did not care about him.
Pretty sure Kizaru would be enough to destroy his entire crew.
He will be killed to show how strong Blackbeard is. Wouldn't be surprised if a loser like Kidd deals the finishing blow.
The only problem I have with Dressrosa is the Bridcage
It took Zoro, Fujitora, several high ranking Marine swordsman, Bartolomoeo, Robin, the remaining gladiators, Franky, all the dwarves - who are allegedly just as strong as franky- and many citizens to stop it for an instant
all while Doffy was Occupied with Luffy
All these stupid fucking plot hooks that go nowhere, like Nami crying over Sanji last chapter, Wanda looking ominous while talking about corpses turning out to be a nickname and her being constipated or something, and Big Mom's ship ending in an anticlimax. It really feels like I'm reading Clickbait: The Manga
You won't BELIEVE what happened to Sanji! Number 5 is BONEY!!!
Everyone remember to do your best to appreciate Penguin today!
Penguin is not fat, that's just his suit!
it was his ultimate attack. Luffy puts his power into something like king kong gun
doffy developed a city ender of his own that is ill suited for 1 vs 1 combat. It's an appropriate level of power for someone at that level.
What's bothering is that Doffy apparently has this power to overwhelm even the strongest fighters all at the same time, without apparent effort.
And somehow he couldn't make use this kind of raw power in another form against Luffy.
>all while Doffy was Occupied with Luffy
Why do some people think it drains your energy when a character creates something with his df powers and controls it remotely? This has NEVER been shown or confirmed.
I think it was more mental than anything. All of his family were getting defeated left and right and he probably was thinking even if he dealt with luffy he still had to deal with fujitora and the rest of the pirates. He couldn't fight at 100% .
Law fucking up his plans, potential clash with kaidou even if he survives this, they kidnapped his golden goose in caesar, fujitora standing there like an idiot when he asked the marines for help, trebol couldn't even keep sugar safe from God Ussop, etc
It was a really..really bad day.
Oda is trying to reenact a skypiea-water 7 fusion arc,followed by an enies lobby arc.This shit is getting old.
Some new ideas would have been good,even if he took a gamble and didn't work out.
>also good job in posting a clearly Bleach/Naruto related gif. into a One Piece thread.
That level of delusion.
The lack of self awareness you would expect from outsiders who only come on 4chan to post in one piece threads.
we still don't know wether there were any consequences or not. maybe later down the line.
don't expect things to play out exactly as you want.
a full-on big mom confrontation would've been pretty sudden too
Not a single mention of Kaidou in the whole chapter.
>This Kaidou guy is becoming more and more appealing as the story goes on.
Not a single mention of that elephant being Jack.
>Jack confirmed zoan mammoth
/A/ please. Don't be retards,
As someone who read the big 3 and enjoyed them in their early-mid stages, I was happy when Naruto finally got salvation after its last arc and am sad every time I read the latest bleach release.
One piece is still as interesting as ever. It's not like the other 2 were inherently bad, but you can only keep a high standard for so long once you run out of ideas.
>Pretty sure Kizaru would be enough to destroy his entire crew.
Ben Beckman pointed at Kizaru with a normal pistol and that was enough to get Kizaru to put his hands up and hold still.
Don't underestimate the Red-Haired pirates
As someone in the same situation but with actual tastes I can affirm that the former big 3 have been going to shit after high points a long time ago.
For One Piece of course this means since the timeskip though both Thriller Bark and Marineford had already some of the bad elements that would be featured more extensively later.
>Not a single mention of that elephant being Jack.
literally everyone not being retarded knew he had a mammoth or elephant related zoan when they saw the ship, saw the footprints and thought about the fact Kaidous army is made of zoans. He tortured the village. Now we see a giant mammoth looking thing in the flashback.
So yes, congrats for reaching a whole new level of retardation
not to mention
Doesn't have to be a full on confrontation, but at that scene, the BM pirates looked pretty bad and unorganized. You would've expected the SH to barely make it out alive instead of mocking a supposedly extremely powerful opponent who could deal with the likes of whitebeard in the past. Totally different than their introduction.
Big Mom has the more interesting crew, Kaido is just a beast with all types of DF animals serving under him.
Big Mom though, I don't understand one fucking thing:: what makes that fat woman so fucking strong, why does whole cake island exist, why is that ship figurehead singing and making faces, who are those edible henchmen she consumed in her first apperance, and why do all sorts of weirds (Minkmen like Pekoms, retards like Bobbin, classy men like Tamago and Capone, three-eyed girl) put up with her if all she wants is candy?
I'm starting to doubt Big Mom will ever actually fight anyone and just stay in the background, she might the Yonko defeated to show off the power of Akainu's new navy.
Kizaru was just fucking around. Garp, Ao Kiji, Kizaru and Sengoku were barely injured and could have easily handled another yonkou, given how disappointing weak WB's crew turned out to be.
There's no way Shanks is stronger than an admiral, with all his crew he might be able to injure one.
>going to shit
yeah that will happen when Oda kicks the bucket and someone is forced to continue his unfinished work but until then enjoy your legit shit taste. One Piece has seen better moments but it is as far away from shit as you are from getting laid.
>WG took his crew mate
He destroys their island
>Assaults a tenryuubito and lives
>His pirate brother is going to be executed
Instigates the worlds first mass breakout from Impel down
If you beleive the newspapers in One piece Luffy is pretty much an unstoppable terrorist who's the son of an even worse terrorist
of course, He's always by his side
>There's no way Shanks is stronger than an admiral,
your reading comprehension is shit
I'd venture to say all of the yonkou are stronger than admirals even a level above so that their first mates are admiral level themselves.
Guys, Sanji was posed with the mutilation of the minks if Raizou wasn't turned over, so in based Sanji fashion, he surrendered under the guise of Raizou for the Mink's safety, much like Robin did to spare the SH crew. Sanji best SH.
>Oda kicks the bucket
Anytime soon. You know something is wrong when he married a hot wife and only had one kid.
It's probably not his and his breaks are becoming more and more frequent.
Is Franky using Iceburg's hairdo right now?
OP is picking up again in this arc. the plot is a little more dynamic this time again, it reminds me of W7/EL which makes me hopeful.
Naruto has always been average at best after its high points.
bleach is not worth reading.
>their first mates are admiral level themselves
this is dumb
if the yonkou had admiral level crewmates the marines wouldn't pose a threat at all
in the WB war you could see they were pretty strong but still not admiral level
Fine, I will appreciate him even if he's chubby
You do realize that Shanks stopped Kaido's fleet who wanted to take down WB just before the Marineford?
And a hundred chapters earlier, broke through the marine fleet to meet WB.
Guys, guys, guys. Hold up. What if Jack actually hasn't a Mammoth zoan and is actually related to the fucking huge ass Zou island elephant himself? He might have a human related df.
Well, we still do not know what happened there, but kaido either listening to or not wanting to fight or being driven away by shanks is enough testament to his power.
>One-armed shanks and WB splitting the clouds

Is it tho?It was stated that the WG would have to send all the admirals in order take down Doflamingo if it was needed.
And i don't see Doffy being as strong as a Yonko.
Also the Yonko think that marines don't pose that much of a threat ,given that they do whatever they like in the new world.
That is not fucking Jack but this guy.
Shanks is relatively ordinary
no singing ship, no army of beastmen/ borderline immortality , not two devil fruits
his abilities are to be a one armed guy with a sword and he's not even a proper swordsman
Well, because funkfreed already has the zo zo no mi. Only if there's more models like african/indian/dwarf elephant.
The mammoth fruit will likely be an ancient model of the zo zo no mi.
Eating fellow mammals is haram and elephants are their holy cows but rhinos and hippos are kosher. I wouldn't mind Carrots being all cuddly, rubbing, biting and licking me but I wanna exterminate all male Minks.

Digitally coloured version...haven't tried to get it so not sure ifl/where scans available. Also, obviously always later than original releases. If you're not sure what happens, read the wiki.
Big Mom will be killed by another new Schichibukai
Whatever Sanji is doing Caesar is probably with him. He probably needs to do some shit and didn't want to leave Caesar with the others for safety reasons so he took the shit face with him
Sanji is personally wanted by a member of the Gorosei and went to deal with the issue himself to avoid putting the rest of the crew in danger.
Caesar was captured by either Big Mom or Jack.
Raizou is with either of them or hiding comically somewhere on the elephant.
Place your bets!
In how many chapter will we see this fucker as a pun from Oda?
I doubt that's what Sanji is doing right now, not exactly the time for that. Caesar wasn't captured by Big Mom since they got away, it's possible Jack got him though. Seems likely to me Raizou is hiding somewhere on Zou, yeah.
>Seems likely to me Raizou is hiding somewhere on Zou, yeah.
>hiding as Jack genocides an entire civilization in search of him
What a dick
What >>133717351 said. As Mihawk pointed out Luffy's strength isn't in his own skills or power, it's in something else entirely which is how he gathers allies. That absolute trust in his allies and vice versa lets him perform at his maximum at all times, and is a central theme to all the big fights in the series.
>Crocodile couldn't use Haki because he lost his true 'ambition' and had to resort to chasing the wild goose known as Pluton for escapism and would have otherwise shit on Luffy
>Luffy and friends got wrecked in W7 because they were completely shaken with Robin only to blow past their limits once they found their resolve
On the same note, Doffy throughout Dressrosa got slowly cornered bit by bit until he was all alone and he still had to play the arrogant Young Master that his family expects of him, at least in his mind. He just cracked eventually. Course tons of other factors came into play, but it's a important aspect. Just like how he never beat Ace or Sabo when he was a kid but due to being the little brother always received the most support, Luffy right now is one of the weakest contenders for Pirate King, yet has growing support that's close to surpassing all the others.
Luffy has never ever beaten a big shot through legitimate means so far, unless you count Enel which is pure luck on the matchup.
Brook mentioned that the minks were angry at samurai and Wano.
He'll likely appear in the flashbacks and is now hiding because the minks want his head on a pike for some reason.
AHHHHHHHH YOU THINK I FORGOT AFTER ALL THIS TIME JAPAN
DOUJINS FUCKING WHEN
S I N D O L L
B U R I E D F R O G
A M A K U C H I
P O W F O O
How was luffy beating Lucci not legitmate? He understood that Lucci was the the biggest obstacle and he beat him
He wasn't holding back or hindered like crocodile or Moria
Are ther contenders for Pirate King besides Luffy, Kidd and Teach?
What happened to this guy? If I'm not mistaken, he can't be used as a hostage anymore.
Are we gonna get Sanji/CC as an uncooperative, fun duo on a run?
the "corpse" thing was really really poorly done
and not hearing about Sanji sort of sucks, but we got enough clues to piece things together (I say Jack took Caesar and Sanji is trailing after him).
the Wanda-corpse thing is really cheap though. I expect more out of Oda than that
Kizaru barely gave a fuck about Benn. He quite literally jumped into the air a few seconds later without even caring about him to attack Law's submarine. The guy's always fucking around.
I'll say that though, he did acknowledge Benn. That's something, but it's far from feeling scared or threatened.
>the Wanda-corpse thing is really cheap though. I expect more out of Oda than that
Actually this kind of joke is exactly what you can expect from Oda, it is pretty typical so I don't get why you are upset
>It was stated that the WG would have to send all the admirals in order take down Doflamingo if it was needed.
I find this very hard to believe, care to point me to the source chapter?
Kaido's crew didn't do shit. They're still looking for the samurai for god knows how long and got wrecked trying to rescue Doflamingo
All they did was torture a bunch of animal people
Kizaru really fucks around a lot doesn't he
As far as I know the only time he showed genuine fear was in Z
Depends if you think filling in blanks is not story progression, oh and I liked your better when you posted "Nothing happens The chapter", please stay true to your memes my friend
Nearly all of the characters were better pre-timeskip because we saw their development and back stories. Now they have to share screen time with fresh and new characters like Law and basically the Dressrosa arc. It's all one-dimensional behavior and shouting.
>because Wanda looked morbid as shit when she said it?
no she did not, she looked worried when Luffy mentioned Sanji though
Seems I was confused.
Even then, why /only/ mention Brook? Because she's a dog and likes to chew on his bones, so she thinks of him first? It's a weird method in any case. She literally says "I'll take you there! Brook is there!" Why only Brook? Why not everyone?? It's a cheap tactic. It would make sense to say "I'll take you to your dead comrade" if someone was actually dead, but if it's just Brook, who's alive an well, why single him out? It did nothing but stir up interest in a lot of readers, just so it could culminate in a really cheap joke
I suspect Jack might have gotten his hands on Ceasar. Now this is purely speculation, but maybe that's why Sanji is gone, he's trying to get him back on his own. Sanji's job is to protect the crew from the shadows. That's what Mr. Prince does. And maybe, because he is up to his head in Kaido-related business, he is of some use to the government, hence the "wanted alive" poster.
Not him, but /a/ is Reddit-tier and insular. It is kind of entertaining to see you faggots freak-out when someone has a negative opinion about Dressrosa, for example. Now that I think about it, /a/ is more Tumblr than anything.
What are your thoughts on the two princes?
I understand that neko=cat and inu=dog but does the rest of their names have any significance?
Could it be one dog prince who turns into a werecat at night?
that can't be good for the back.
>He probably got in
The Yonko isn't a club or organization.
You get named an emperor when you control a large fleet and hold large territories in the New World.
If Blackbeard hadn't amassed a fleet and territory during the 2 year timeskip there would likely only be 3 emperors, with Shanks, Kaido and Big Mom dividing Whitebeards territory among themselves.
isn't that kind of strange?
have we even seen any birds on the island so far?
***********/A/ PLEASE LISTEN********
I BELIEVE THAT KAIDO IS THE MAMMOTH!!!!!!!!
THE BACK OF THE MAMMOTH IS THE SAME THE KAIDO
GOYS PLEASE LISTEN. ODA is TRYING TO RUSE US. DONT LET IT HAPPEN SENPAITACHI. COPT AND PASTE IN EVERY THREAD
you have a point.
they probably eat human too.
I think it's weird that it's not based on animal traits(mammalian, avian etc.) but instead they just eat anything without fur, like they listed a bunch of reptiles after hippo as if they think they all belong to the same class of animal
can we discuss how Chopper was absurdly cute this chapter
platypus mink when?
Does anyone know what happened to Ceasar?
Is he still a captive with the Strawhats or did Sanji kick his butt over to the Big Mom ship?
>So Jack is Mammoth zoan
Really? How heck did a Zoan user think he could take on 2 Admirals and a whole giant fleet of marine?
>Buggy trained to be better at using his DF
>as a result, he awakened the bara bara no mi
>he's now capable of splitting things on the atomic level
>Buggy Balls are now nukes
Because Zoan has an unlimited power gain. Its somewhere stated, that there is no limit if you train as a zoan typ. So you can become stronger and stronger and thats maybe why Kaido is 'the strongest beast'. There were no notable Zoan user so far (expect CP9, but they jobbed) so we really don't know much bout their powerlevel.
>Capone Bege is assisting mam
I'm really tired of oda constantly copying kishimoto and being sexist. Why does the female emperor have to have a assistance? And don't give me that kaido shit. The only reason drakes with kaido is so that fatass can get more hype. Why didn't shanks need assistance from a supernova? Of course the female does tho.
>There were no notable Zoan user so far
I think pekoms should count
>He can split body and soul
>he can split krazy glue
>he can split the earth
>he can split the time-space
>implying the ninja wasn't spying on Kaidou's operations before this fiasco
I hope Raizou is somewhat competent unlike the two retards who got knocked off of Zou while playing peekaboo.
ok yeah, you're right. Let me say it otherwise: We didn't saw much of a zoan typ, thats maybe why people might think its the weakest type (When you see badass logia and awakend paramecia)
And the guardian beasts from Impel Down where pathetic, I think Zoan User from New World are pretty strong
How were they pathetic? Minotaurs took on Jinbei, Luffy and Crocodile at once and was only taken out for like five minutes. Awakened Zoans are fucking monsters in terms of stamina, durability and recovery
>Momonosuke is the son of the emperor of Wano.
>Kin'emon, Kanjuro and Raizou are his bodyguards.
Please but this shit theory away
Momo ran sobbing into Kinemon's arms yelling "DAD!", that was genuine emotion
Seeing as Jack only called out Raizou's name while raiding Furrytopia the ninja is probably special for his own reasons too
Paramecia has the most unpredictable hacks though.
Sugar's mind control.
Law's ope ope fruit.
They offer their users unpredictability and opponents get fun surprised they never would expect.
A Zoan though? No surprises as all, they are all predictable, and you either counter them with even more force or through paramecia hacks.
Bepo confrmed for best Heart Pirate
Yeah but Pre-Time-Skip Luffy fucked the Minotaurus over. Now he is many times stronger but Luffy is now in the New World, which means there must be far stronger than the Impel Down beasts. I mean they are pathetic in comparison with the new world. Imagine a Kaidou or Jack are Zoan and awakend... I think of a Wolverine-OP-ability like Self-healing and shit. That would explain why Kaidou is called the strongest beast
Reminder that this is DEFINITELY a parallel arc to Skypia, hence
>The climbing up at the start of both arcs
>The guardians of Zou parallel the priests of Skypia
>Ambiguous new power (electricity) to parallel mantra (I think itd be linked to the elctric we sometimes see with haki
>There's a bloody BELL in both arc. I bet you one million berri it's going to get rung at the end of the war that will take place on Zou
>Oh yeah, there's going to be a Minks vs Kaido war to parallel Shandorans vs Enel. I heavily presume.
What future parallels do we think will be made? A Poneglyph on Zou like how there was one on Skypia?
>Luffy and Zoro treat Sanji like part of monster trio
>HURR DUR IT'S OUT OF CHARACTER
Are Sanjifags secretly part of the Sanji hatebase?
So he can die. He wants to start shit with the largest amount of powerful people he can, so one or several of them will kill him. He'll probably fish around for a pretext until it happens too. Or Luffy goads him into living anywhere from a year to ten years longer just to keep fighting with him.
As it stands though, I'm sure he would readily start something just as bad as the Marineford War , although the WG and Marines would be leery of it because they still haven't fixed the fallout of that one, and Kaidou would probably cause more damage because he's a suicidal ass. He would do ANYTHING to force the Admirals hands and make them fight hard enough to kill him, including basically making ANOTHER Island just as uninhabitable as Punk Hazard. If it's possible he'd probably try and make Akainu truly angry, angrier than when he was at Punk Hazard.
Yep. There's just too many similarities for it not to be a parallel arc. I mean come fucking on. ANOTHER person who can change their weight? I love what Oda's doing. It's not a literal copy of an arc, it's just a really nice way of linking with the Grand Line saga in a subtle way.
First off, Zoans have unique tricks of their own, like Pekoms having a super shield built into his back and everything Kaku did, even Lucci could control his tail. Devil fruits are restricted to how you use them, not what they are.
Secondly, even if there are no surprises, it's still a fruit that grants it's user additional abilities, from highly boosted strength, speed and durability, to whatever natural strengths it's animal form has. Treating them as worthless because they don't have crazy abilities is the same as saying Sanji, Zoro and Garp are worthless because all they have no special powers and are limited to their physical skills.
Of course. Sanji is already setting up Water 7.2 with his big mystery plot. Of course he's royal. Just like Robin, the Govt want him, and the SH's will save him, like how they saved Robin. And just like Robin, we'll learn about his vague past. What I love is that Sanji was set up to be just one of the original 5, with no exceptional story twists. But what Oda is doing... it feels very rule-break-y, in terms of One Piece.
But I mean, it hasn't been addressed. Until it's addressed, we don't know what it is. As plausible a suggestion that is, it could be something else, it's not definitely fur based. Even if it is, it's still an ambiguous and unique power like mantra.
The Barto Club aren't with the SH's. They left because they'd dropped them off at Zou. Guess they could've gone with em but, they are a separate crew after all, probably with their own plans.
>le edgy 4chan meme phrase heuheuheu
No. I agree that all of the other crews in the SH fleet have their own shit going but Barto's sole and only goal was to be a fanboy to the SH and to be of use to them.
So why the fuck did he bail.
This isn't even me. I was just going to ignore your shitpost but someone else that had no involvement in the matter found your post so fucking stupid that he deemed it accurate to reply to you in greentext and naruto image.
Just let that sink in for a few seconds.
Friendly reminder that Luffy beat up a Tenryuubito, invaded Impel Down, caused a major breakout, fucked shit up at Marineford, returned there again for publicity and got away with it all in a span of a couple days.
Idk, maybe he's scared? Feels he's outstayed his welcome? He may be a fanboy but he's respectful of the crew, it seems. For him to still be with the SH's on Zou would be a bit invasive. Or Bartolomeo really does have other goals, who knows.
Or Oda just wanted to have this arc focus on the SH's and such.
>Reminder that Dofflamingo wasn't a big bad, he was a mini-boss.
Of course he was just a miniboss seeing as the big guys in the New World will be the yonkou. They explicitly say he's just a part in the plan to take down Kaidou.
Don't forget that he still is pretty young, around his 20s, while Garp and Don Chinjao were wrecking everyone and everything when they were around their 30s. Luffy has a lot to learn
Yeah, plus the training to uncrease these power. Basically, Fishmen are 10times stronger than human, but Oda makes them look like idiots. Even Jimbe, because he's not that strong. Maybe there are some badass fishmen among the revolution.
Well nothing you're saying's really ruling it out. It's possible that he just doesn't want to out stay his welcome. Or not. Like I said, Oda might just want to have this arc be about the Straw Hats.
Whenever he splits himself, the parts act like still connected and don't act as actualy split.
Would splitting Atoms even result in nukes this way?
When he splits himself, there's no blood pouring out. Why would the energy burst out of the Atom?
But the excuse of "it's a kid's story" is pretty shallow. I agree, he can do as he likes, but target audiences shouldn't really be relevant. The fact of the matter is, this manga is clearly a lot deeper than a simple action-picture book for kids, the plot is coherent, long, sometimes complex, deals with things like drugs and racism, and he knows for sure that people of all ages, both genders, etc, watch and read it.
>Awakened devil fruits become a thing
>Shits that is clearly not string starts turning into string
>lol Gear 4 though
Thinking back, I'm surprised we didn't have a bigger shitstorm over this. People were commenting on how stupid "awakened" sounded but it just sort of happened.
I still feel that awakened zoans made more sense than turning buildings into string. That sentiment was tossed around a lot when awakened paramecias were revealed but it still blew over pretty quickly.
This chapter just proved Gas Gas can also turn into solid cloud and choke/hold humans/items.
So Smoker is simply outdated on EVEY parameter.
Gas Gas can do everything Smoke Smoke can.
It can also shoot lasers.
Control the surrounding atmosphere.
And other strange shit which Smoke Smoke fruit could never do.
>Speaking of Pekoms I wonder what his relationship with the rest of the minks is
Probably the runt of the lion-mink litter who was constantly teased for his laughable innocent eyes, hence the shade, with Pekoms, ultimately leaving Zou to toughen up and ended up in Big Mom's crew of freaks.
Luffy has like the 3rd highest active bounty in the series that we know of and he's only 19. Chinjao probably got his bounty in his prime at around age 30 or so and it never went further up once his power begin to deteriorate/Garp wrecked his head.
Caesar could do all that since Punk Hazard, speedreader.
Also deal with it, Oda has made it a point that some DFs are superior to others.
Not exactly confirmed but Gas>Smoke is a logical conclusion.
He didin't say they were worthless, he said they were predictable. And that's true, all zoans have a physical boost plus the special abilities of whatever animal they are, which you can deduce with just one glance. For example, the mole Zoan uses tunnels, it's obvious before she did it.
And the boosted strenght speed and durability aren't that much of a big thing since normal humans can achieve those levels too. Fishmen were supposed to be 10 times stronger than humans and were still reduced to cannon fodder to the point that Zoro can beat them underwater.
People like Zoro and Luffy are obvious exceptions. Fishmen are still much more powerful than normal humans because of their arbitrary 10x strength modifier but also since their homeland's location is near fucking impossible to get to.
