You wake up and find yourself in the One Piece world.
What would you do from now on? Will you join the marines and become an instrument of justice? or will you become a pirate and venture the seas?
or will you become a normie?
tell us about it
Some times I just wonder if the retards that desperately try to make new memes like this are believing their own bullshit. I mean the delusion would transcend this plain of reality but still I wonder if people like that actually exist
Anyone who says anything other than normie is either autistic or suicidal, and you're autistic for posing a question like the ones you'd find on narutoforums or wherever the fuck.
>mfw patiently waiting for Bonney to marry Sanji
yes Sanji will get powerup true. Might become Blackbear level
Lets play a game anons
Kill 1 pick 2, the rest is out to kill you.
How fucked are you?
Welcome to 4chan, where video game generals become /pol/ when asian players/teams win, where anything rated a 7 is mediocre and below that is utter unplayable dogshit, where there are people who unironically read AgK, Hitman Reborn and Nurutu, and where a man quits a company for misdiagnosed staph infection will be called a cuck.

>She'll be the ninth

>Jinbe will meet up with the rescue group and officially join at the end
2016 is about to get crazy.
Rayleigh, Sengoku and Garp are old, and way past their prime, they won't be able to hold off Akainu and Shanks.
Shanks is most certainly stronger than Mihawk, Mihawk is just a better SWORDSMAN.
Shiki is a shit tier jobber.
Kizaru is pretty much the only one who's a challenge.
His fight with Kizaru was 2 seconds long, he blocked a attack and kicked him away
Plus he save Luffy from Aokiji and Akainu
He would definitely lose on a long fight, but he landed hits on Kizaru and Aokiji, and blocked the same attack that killed Ace, Zoro just blocked a non named attack. Marco is probably stronger than all SH
A shame she's getting neglected when she and Carue were the unofficial eighth and ninth members back in the day. And this scene was always her defining moment, even if it was futile.
that had more to do with oda's shitty writing
With all the awakened fruits b.s. you'd think they would have used it to save ace
Look how much stronger the strawhats are compared to pre ts. Whitebeard pirates should have been much stronger than post ts strawhats.
Since people like drawing parallels from Dressrosa to Alabasta, I guess this would be another one
No you idiot, it was blatant that the strawhats would need to be stronger than than the Whitebeard commanders to go to Raftel.
I mean I don't even get why you thought anything less of Luffy training with the first mate of the pirate king, who actually wounded Kizaru rather than just tanking damage from the guy until cuffed and raped by sea stone.
Rayleigh also has no DF which means that even beyond all the new shit Luffy learned with his Devil Fruit, he also certainly learned to be less dependent on it when needed, like when he has to fight Blackbeard.
I base it on Marco getting his ass kicked even when he didn't mean to get his ass kicked
Did you even read that arc?
And then I said that characters weaker than Admirals can still block or avoid a few blows but they would clearly get their ass whooped
>Marco is probably stronger than all SH
I agree with you about Marco. Marineford showed us that he was a very weak combatant (nowhere near on par with an admiral except for) with a very strong devil fruit.
Zoro has no devil fruit and was fighting against an admiral who could control gravity. I'm asking where you draw the parallel that Zoro is weak like Marco is post skip.
He broke an admiral's devil fruit ability without sea stone and went on the offensive, then Fujitora ran away.
Nah you're an idiot
Whitebeard pirates were the strongest pirates out there and were completely written off by Oda, because Oda is a shitty writer.
You have THE strongest forces going against each other and all Marco managed to do was get cuffed by a low ranking VICE admiral.
Those guys are complete fodder for the Strawhats now.
Oda was a complete shitty writer during Marineford.
He broke a rock, not the ability. Fujitora's fruit is hilariously broken, he can force everyone not to act. If he didn't have an agenda it'd be absolute bullshit that the SHs managed to get away
And they didn't do fuck all during the war.
Imagine Post ts luffy going to war. He'd have a field day given how Oda held everyone back. All the characters basically stood around the entire time giving speeches.
The fact is the only character actually strong enough to deliver Luffy (and Jimbei) from the admirals was Buggy. Everyone else could only run from the guy for a moment, Jimbei was mortally wounded in his own attempt.
>Nami being the happiest we have seen her since Sabody because Usopp made her a new weapon.
>Nami x Sanji fags BTFO
Pic related is happening and nothing can stop it.
>he can force anyone not to act
Except Zoro who already canonically was able to act against it until the admiral flew away with Doflamingo instead of defeating Zoro.
I agree it's a broken strong fruit but it's not impossible to fight Fujitora.
>And mark my words, in some of their backpacks Carrot is hiding.
This, the fact that she didn't show up at all on this chapter and how adamant she was about going with Luffy. She will definitely sneak on board.
>complains about the shonen scheme
Are you serious?
However One Piece one of the top shonen and far better as the most shit, it's still a shonen and it's has "rules".
Luffy should die countless times bfeore if he wasn't the mc.
Lunafags you guys are losing it man.. you faggots make me feel bad for you guys.
by using usopp and nami u guys are basically admitting luffyxnami is dead. Did you guys finally open your eyes? nice
No it was made very clear by Oda that Whitebeard was the strongest pirate out there, but that he did not recruit his crew based on how strong they are, and he did not have the ambition to be the king of pirates.
His commanders were all Jimbei tier, which is still pretty decent.
The WG is written as the most powerful force in the world, seeing as it's strong enough to claim ownership over the vast majority of the world's territory, with only the brink of the world, blocked by natural barriers, still claimed by other forces.
Naturally, 800 years ago, you could imagine the WG had less territory. It had been encroaching on the world until Gol D. Roger was executed and started the Great Age of Pirates.
CoC is rare.
Devil Fruits are relatively rare, just because people in positions of power have Devil Fruits, meaning they have better access to them, doesn't mean they aren't.
Soon you'll start arguing that everyone in the One Piece world is strong because pirates in the New World are strong.
And Whitebeard stood around for the most part
Didn't use an advanced haki attacks
Foreshadowed by Buggy himself that Whitebeard pirates were absolutely legit
Then Oda completely washed them out just like he did with Fishman Island
Shitty writing is Shitty
It was basically I'll show you a special attack and you show me yours type of battle
Far from a War of the best.
Anon, both of those things are rare. As we're going higher and higher up in the world, the powerlevels are getting higher and higher, so obviously people are going to have strong abilities. In fact, nowadays people complain if antagonists DON'T have some form of super-haki.
Whitebeard was on literal life support before the fight began. Whitebeard went to Marineford knowing he would die 100%, but hoping that Ace would escape.
Whitebeard was depicted as mortally ill from his first appearance.
Akainu then had Whitebeard backstabbed and it was directly talked about how a healthy Whitebeard wouldn't have been stabbed.
Whitebeard used a haki attack on Aokiji, but Aokiji dodged it.
WB was weak as shit. The life support things kept him alive. And he removed them befor they arrived to Marineford which was a mistake.
He got a heart attack when he tried to use haki saving Ace from beheading.
You wake up and find yourself in the real world
What would you do from now on? Will you join the marines and become an instrument of justice? or will you join ISIS and venture the deserts?
or will you become a normie and browse 4chan instead?
tell us about it
>Zou is now officially the second-shortest arc after Jaya
>Jack, much like Bellamy, was massively hyped up only to be revealed to be a complete bitch and taken out in one shot, left ambiguously dead
Does this mean that in 500 chapters we'll have jackfags convinced he's joining the crew?
Were the rest of the pirates on life support?
Whitebeard clearly could have caused more quakes to occur
Oda hyped them to be the strongest opposing force out there and a shipload of them were weaker than pre ts luffy
Imagine Shanks having that weak of a crew Post ts or any of the Emperors after being lauded for being the big bad fish of the sea
Post Ts Strawhat crew would have saved Ace along with Whitebeard Pirates, but the ENTIRE Armada of pre Ts Whitebeard Pirates were complete fodder thanks to Oda and not what they should have been
>Jack, much like Bellamy, was massively hyped up only to be revealed to be a complete bitch
All memery aside: Jack was undoubtedly a very strong motherfucker as it was stated in the manga itself multiple times. Him getting one-shotted by Zunisha does not make him weak or a bitch since pretty much anyone would have been wiped out by such an attack.

>16 DF users in the entire country

I'll tell you why Straw Hats keep running into DF users: because only the strong can survive on the Grand Line, and DF users tend to be stronger than most for obvious reasons.

Fucking casual speedreaders
Who else? A FI or Dressrosa rep, somehow?
Skypeia still unofficially exists, W7 was a mistake, TB was just a ship, and Sabaody was a disaster for them. I don't think anybody gives a shit about East blue either. Not to mention all the bad press they probably got from the war.
Is Jinbei officially an ex-schikibukai now, or will he be there too? It's been years since FI.
So Sanjifags literally BTFO by Godsopp and his manly rod?
Is this going to become the one piece version of:
>Halo is suddenly popular
I don't like this type of bump/bait/spam. The sorts of responses these get aren't genuine conversations. Having back and forths about current events and firing off theories is the lifeblood of new chapter threads. Replying to spam with expected responses/fanfiction is kinda derailing and there are surely better places to RP than here.
>Wapol (better off then ever thanks to Luffy)
This, they how will they ever recover. Maybe they can start by fucking off and not posting their shit ship on every fucking One Piece thread.
>a crazed god emperor who controls lightning tries to eradicate an ancient civilization in the sky

>Marineford was in the grand line
>the Florian Triangle
Seemed pretty dangerous.
Also, the WG doesn't want people going there AND it's very difficult to get there, so for example as a person of east blue, imagine Don Krieg's fleet entering the grand line, and then returning shattered as fuck. Then a single man follows them back to the blue and wrecks them even more before going back to the grand line. That's what the people of the blue seas see of the grand line.
>Maybe they can start by fucking off and not posting their shit ship on every fucking One Piece thread
Maybe they'll do that if newfags like you ever learn to NOT give them attention and reward them for each and every post they make.
>All of these boisterously loud and crazy people in one room defending a man who punched a royal square in the face and grazed past each Admiral
The reverie is going to be an absolute shit show for everyone involved. I'm more excited for this than the Sanji rescue.
I guess Fujitora will probably be there too, undoubtedly being "grey" but giving the SH fans support.
>"Luffy is a stand up guy, thanks to him, I started my Jew empire selling superior steel to anything that came before, making weapons and selling them all over the world."
>which convenes in the new world
It's at Mariejoa, and I don't know what that has to do with the fact that she is unable to get to Whole Cake Island before Luffy does.
Oh wait, maybe you should just fucking read posts before responding.
Daily reminder that SanjixNami will be canon soon.
Jimbei explicitly states three months. In a way, this is still arbitrary, because it's often difficult to gauge time passed in the one piece world and we aren't regularly shown a calendar. But three months is stated.
I wonder if they're going to do much more than briefly mention Luffy desu, they'll focus on Yonkou stuff and Dragon, and who knows what else is going on on the mainland.
I expect Blackbeard will be a main concern.
I'm looking foward on what made Sanji Sanji and both the Reverie where we might she Wapol in all his douchey glory again. Maybe Vivi can get some payback for when she was a child.
We'll probably get to see [Green Bull] at last, who'll either be Akainu-lite or unpredictable as of now. After all the shit that's going to be uncovered with Doffy, the schikibukai system really has no reason to be anymore.
And that sucks the most for Boa, who's the only one actually using the title for something important, even if the Amazons are still legend-strong.
I expect Green Bull to be absolutely batshit, since Akainu appointed Fuji who is more mellow, he or she is going to even that out.
>Sure LuNafag sure.
Nah man, I'm Buffy Team (Boa+Luffy)
I don't even ship Usopp with anyone else but Kaya, because Kaya is pure and only for Godsopp. But bitches keep jumping on Godsopp lap
It's already confirmed that the Sakura (Drum) Kingdom, Alabasta, Dressrosa and Fishman Island are part of the Reverie.
The only question is Wapol but frankly there's too much comedy potential there for Oda to not do it
They were admirals
Spider legs is definitely lower than them
Being the 2nd strongest of the Whitebeard crew would have meant Vice admirals aren't doing shit to him
Marco could've used Observation haki, but that would have been too convenient
Is it stated that Vivi is going to Whole Cake Island? You're right that Reverie is in Mariejoas, my mistake there. I was under the impression she's going to reverie since that makes the most sense though, and Mariejoas is a long distance away from Alabasta even though it's only at the border of the grand line/new world.
The Alabasta royal family was already shown to be there once, speedreader-kun.
Well Fujitora is friendly but won't take shit from his boss, Kizaru lacks any sort of mercy, so Ryokugyu is either a butt kisser, a psychopath or a woman.
I wouldn't mind a woman based on a famous Japanese actress.
>inb4 Green Bull is more like Green Cow
Huge ara ara nechan who coddles her subordinates and has retarded physical strength.
Knowing Oda's current character designs It will probably be another lame muscular old man.
>people are seriously using this as an insult now
I mean, I can read One Piece without analyzing every single panel like an autist and still remember the details, you know?
Some people are just dumb and forget.
Sabo was strong as fuck without any devil fruit and then obtained an overpowered one. Marco was average as a fighter from what we saw, but had a god tier devil fruit. Imagine Marco fighting Kizaru without Phoenix. Sabo likely could hold his own, he's a stronger character.
I'm not sure how asking that question makes me a retard, I was the first in this thread to assert she was going to Reverie and not the wedding. I was making sure I didn't speed read.
>Green Bull is actually Green Cow, a huge breasted ara ara milf lady who's Devil Fruit power controls wood.
>Everyone loves her of her mature beauty based on a classical actress of Japanese acting.
>She believes in "Motherly Justice" and all her privates act as her children.
No idea, I think they are talking about this guy.
It makes perfect sense for Sabo to be stronger than Marco.
Sabo was a combatant since childhood, with no devil fruit, who was saved and recruited into a child soldier for Dragon.
He's basically Dragon's Lucci, and now on top of that he has a fire logia.
Marco got a fruit that gave him so much damage negation he could ignore an admiral's attacks. But other than that he's never depicted as an exceptional fighter. But Sabo has been fighting since he was like five years old, and is directly trained in fighting into adulthood by the likes of Dragon and Ivankov (who did the best of anyone other than Whitebeard vs Akainu).
Ace wasn't weak. If neither he or Akainu had a devil fruit it's unclear who would win. Akainu was not able to land an unblocked/undodged blow against Ace, it's just that even blocking, Akainu's magma burned Ace.
Akainu's killing blow was not fair combat. You're underestimating Ace.
He'll make a gigantic fort on Zunisha's back. The buildings are fucked anyway and he has a country full of workers to help him build all that.
It'll look similar to this but obviously higher tech.
Whitebeard didn't train anyone? No one decided to train within the Whitebeard crew? At all? Ever?
What about Marco wanting to show off when about to save Ace?
Sabo stronger than Doffy you think? It was pretty obvious to me.
>Oda sensei this rabbit is very popular among young people. We need more rabbit girl.
He's going to build a Elephant Trojan to wreck Kaido
>Instead of making a single character Sun Wukong, Oda puts references of his powers in different crewmembers
I love it and can't wait for it to zap some cake ass.
Actually this chapter disproves you. Nami geting a new Clima Tact always leads to her fighting in the next arc (please Oda, don't forget about her after WCI)
Does Oda usually get request from his editors or he is forced, I picture him as the guy who likes to do whatever he wants since he makes megaton amount of money for Shonen Jump.
Oda's stated before he doesn't let his editors add story elements. The closest there's ever been was when an editor said Sabaody was a bit empty, so Oda made the Supernovas in a day.
I'm just asking because I can't remember or find the scene at all, not because I'm doubting you. I can't say that I paid the most attention during Fishman Island considering how dull of an arc it was.
>In a way, this is still arbitrary, because it's often difficult to gauge time passed in the one piece world and we aren't regularly shown a calendar.
We actually have a pretty good grasp on the post-Loguetown timeline.
The journey through paradise took a little less than three months, and the timeskips been two weeks.
I believe he takes missions then trains
Look at him practicing with the mera mera when he got back on a cover page
Luffy trained two years as did the other members
Marco could have trained for 10 years
I'm happy to see Nami having a new weapon but i'm mad that Oda gives her the Nyoi-bo
I wanted a fighter who fight with that sort of weapon in One Piece for years but Nami is more of a mage, what a waste ;_;
Of course he trained to some extent. It's unlikely he was as motivated as Sabo, who was shot down by the Tenryubito and then rescued by the Revolutionaries who aim to depose them.
Sabo's motivation is implied by the fact that he's second in command of the entire revolutionary forces.
Whitebeard already achieved his dream. Marco's dream was achieved too. They just wanted Ace to be pirate king, that was their last ambition.
Dragon and his forces though, don't just want to live in a happy family, they want to down the WG.
>mfw Chopper probably even smells her but isn't saying anything because he hopes to get laid
I want to give a shout out to all the people saying SaNafags btfo.
Because all the lunafags saying this are admitting that their delusional ship burned down once again.
No one has even mentioned lunafags getting btfo by usopp because its not even worth trying to show them all the times the have been btfo. This chapter basically killed all lunafags.
Atleast SanjixNami is still alive, are you guys forgetting we are going to get a whole SanjixNami arc on whole cake island?
Pick shanks and mihawk
They will not surrender for their ego, as they will fight to the max only to surpass the other. Only rayleigh could stop shanks as he was his former superior.
And in order to achieve your dreams you have to have the power to go out and do so.
In order to maintain being the strongest crew out there you have to back it up.
Maintaining territory and so forth. Marco was washed out by Oda and it's that simple.
It felt like at the start of the timeskip Oda was trying his best to make their designs feel different.
Now that the timeskip doesn't matter anymore he's falling back into their older styles and designs.
I don't agree.
>In order to achieve your dreams you have to have the power to go out and do so.
The Whitebeard pirates were able to fight against the entire Marine Forces + Shichibukai.
Marco was strong enough to 1v1 Kizaru until a third party snuck cuffs on him. I'm not sure what more you want. Marco is not as strong as Whitebeard, I'm sorry anon. You don't have to be the strongest in the world to pursue your dreams.
Which is good since her old outfit made her look like a 50 year old cougar. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
Ace was pretty damn strong, enough to be 2nd in Whitebeard's crew behind a man who can't really die.
Keep in mind at Marineford that Ace had been in prison for god knows how long, and physically/mentally exhausted from all the shit he'd been through. I don't even like Ace, but dude and his fruit definitely weren't pushovers.
So, basically these two can snipe everyone else while I comfortably sit on my inland.
Why would you even need to run? If serious Kizaru is a mad sniper, and Whitebeard can sink fleets or islands. There's now way that they can get near of you. And without Shiki dropping islands over you, they can't touch you.
Yeah, I get what you mean. Just saying that outfit was definitely the worse of the crew. Still miss her bangs though :(
Blackbeard has a conjoined twin brother under his clothes, that's how he can use two devil fruits, and also the reason why he ate the second one under wraps, because Basketbeard is fucking gross.
That one's been pretty varied. The whale happens to be the same basic shape as his pompadour, but consider all the styles he's done that are different, like the braids or the kabuto.
I think the hairstyle change works.
The bangs gave her a more reserved and mysterious vibe. Her more casual appearance now is very open and friendly, which fits how she's developed since Enies Lobby.
The warlords stood around for the most part and had they been as active as others it would have been a crushing defeat.
The cuffs weren't snuck on they were written on him by Oda.
Blackbeard was already stronger than any Whitebeard commander pre skip. He killed Thatch, captured Ace, and killed Whitebeard, all pre skip.
It's stated by Shanks that he'd been hiding his power level, and he scarred Shanks face before he even had a devil fruit.
If a yonko says "this guy is hiding his power level, WHITEBEARD, don't fuck with him." you know the guy is strong as fuck.
Akainu melted off half of Whitebeard's face but he could only damage Ace via "lol my fruit is stronger than your fruit" and by targetting Luffy because he realized it was a waste of time to fight Ace for five hours before Ace finally goes down legit.
After all, Ace was overly reliant on his Devil Fruit, that's why lost to Blackbeard, who if you recall, can completely negate DF abilities.
Everyone who relied on their Devil Fruits automatically lose to Blackbeard, so that literally isn't an argument.
>a severely weakened Ace was one shotted by Akainu because if Ace hadn't blocked the hit, Luffy would've died
I think most people didn't like the change just because it, along with Nami's eyes being smaller, made the girls look too similar to each other and Hancock. Since then though, Nami's eyes have grown and are sometimes back to pre-timeskip hugeness, while Robin's face has been refined and simply drawn better to look more like her old self again. Now the only loss is that her hair is slightly less unique.
This chapter feels like a return to form for some reason. Maybe its because things are finally picking up again. I've got a great feeling about the next two arcs.
I would totally watch Basketcase starring Blackbeard.
>I've got a great feeling about the next two arcs.
Empress Big Mom
Maybe Marco is training to awaken his fruit
No it tells everyone you're retarded for trying to defend your headcanon. Vice Admirals have always been jobbers, always will be. Even Garp for all his amazing shit, hasn't done much outside of flash backs besides whack the shit out of jobbers like Marco. Guy combo'd with Sengoku and couldn't even do jack shit to Blackbeard and would have lost all of Marineford unless Shanks came along. The same Blackbeard that was crying like a bitch after a single hit from a 1 hp Whitebeard.
Amazing foreshadows and master planning aside, what are some aspects of One Piece that were obviously not that well planned or thought out beforehand? Maybe even complete asspulls.
>shanks being a big shot yonko while fucking around in east blue, getting his arm bitten off by some lvl1 fish after having been on roger's ship
>zoro's backstory is so basic and unimpressive by today that we're due for another retcon of his past like for luffy and sanji
>luffy and ace being kids to the most notorious people in the world
>Instead of making a single character Sun Wukong, Oda puts references of his powers in different crewmembers
Sorry but I have to ask:
What other crew members show any sort of abilities displayed by Sun Wukong?
I guess Chopper can transform...? And Luffy obviously has the super strength, but that's not really indicative of Sun Wukong, that's a power everyone and their mother has in One Piece.
So a jobber managed to defeat the 2nd strongest dude in Whitebeard pirates when they're the strongest pirates out there?
Oh yeah that's definitely shitty writing there.
Thanks for the clarification faggot.
Armament Haki came completely out of nowhere and wasn't well written until the timeskip where he introduced hardening.
As much as I like Sabo as a character his introduction to the narrative was so left field that I'm convinced he was concepted during that saga while Oda was writing the Ace and Luffy flashback.
The existence of the Goa Kingdom as a whole feels like a later addition once One Piece started getting more involved with the world nobles and themes of greed in the upper class. Foosha Village is so distances from the rest of that setting.
If there aren't some hot ass doujins from the next two Comiket's I'll rip my dick off.
How, exactly? Nothing I predicted was disproven, besides that Pekoms might not come. He's still gotten fucked up twice now, whatever travel method he has to Whole Cake may no longer be on him anymore.
So that he could keep the character in the manga using Sabo.
Because lets face it. Sabo is Ace light. He's got the same fucking ability, similar character design, Luffy's older brother and a similar personality.
then why even back on alabasta was Ace's name spelled AsCE? with the S crossed out? its an homage to Sabo.
Oda said in an SBS that he knew Ace's fate when he created the character. There are also hints of a 3rd sake cup in Luffy and Ace's small flashback. Sabo has been always there alongside Ace. You just read too fast to notice.
This, always dumbfounded with all the people that felt sad for his death. I was so fucking angry, after all the shit Luffy did to save that him he falls for cheap bait and dies like a bitch.
>le speed reader meme
I wasn't the one who said that Sabo was made after Ace died. I'm sure Oda had planned it from the start.
What I said is that his character is disappointing in how similar he is to Ace. It feels like Ace was replaced with Sabo.
>then why even back on alabasta was Ace's name spelled AsCE? with the S crossed out?
It was a visual gag.
>Oda said in an SBS that he knew Ace's fate when he created the character.
What does Ace dying have to do with Sabo?
>There are also hints of a 3rd sake cup in Luffy and Ace's small flashback.
This happened during Impel Down.
Sabo was definitely something he invented further down the line after Ace. Oda's generally a good story teller so the fact a huge player in the storyline wasn't even mentioned until the end of Act 1 and he had to be handwaved with an amnesia subplot comes across as "I came up with the idea while I was planning out the Whitebeard War" to me.
If he wasn't a late addition then it was just terrible storytelling. Sabo still feels like a replacement for Ace.
but thats not the case. youre memeing as much as i am when you say that. there are clear differences between two characters youre just saying
>lel le brothers are so same. Oda is hack amirite?
the amnesia bit is a cliche, ill give you that. but otherwise sabo is a very well written character. He had a lame ass dad but still wanted to travel the world and write a book about his adventures. He wasn't hung up on misfortunes.
He's sooooo much smarter than Ace and Luffy and probably much stronger as than either of them as well.
He's a good character and to dumb him down to Ace 2.0 is not accurate.
Is it just me or is there something off here? He is wrapping both arms around the whole group, so there should be two lines (arms), right? Or else he learned to detach both arms or something.
Robin can create clones.
Sure they don't come from her hair, but thats good enough for me.
And that was my list for now (Luffy, Chopper, Robin, and now Nami). If anyone can think of anything else, please say.
Which was also well into the story, for being such a universal thing, it's odd in-universe how it's not even mentioned until long afterwards.
Like, realistically Shanks would've explained it to Luffy after he gained devil powers as knowing that there's shit around that can negate your powers could be vital lifesaving information later on.
No attention was ever brought to it. Luffy never asked about it, Ace never made it out to be anything more than a tattoo, it reads as a misspelling of his name by the tattoo artist.
Nobody ever looked at that and said "yes this is definitely hinting at a dead brother further down the line." It's something that can only be connected in retrospect.
why would Luffy need to ask about it? He was there when Sabo died, he would understand what it means
And if you've ever gotten a tattoo, it would be obvious (especially on your arm, you can see the work being done) that the artist is fucking up. The S crossed out was intentional, not some mistake that couldn't be corrected.
We'll see. Usually by now the story shows them revealing a Log Pose or a Vivre Card on how to get somewhere. And it's not the only way she comes back, just the one that can help escalate this arc without some serious stretches to the motivations of others.
I mean, the end goal is Big Mom vs. Kaidou vs. the Alliance clearly, so it's either Big Mom has no reason to escalate her fight with Kaidou while dealing with the Allaince, or there's got to be some unknown third party involvement.
Nowhere was it said the Whitebeard pirates were the strongest pirates out there. The only fact was that Whitebeard was the holder of the Strongest Man in the World, and he obtained that title by default simply after Roger died. The only people we know for sure that challenged him and lost were Crocodile and Kaidou, and we don't even know when he fought them other than Crocodile doing it ages ago. If you seriously take titles and people hyping each other up as absolutes you're no different than beri/belli power level fags who can do nothing but read text and take everything at face value instead of looking at the actual results and mongolian pictures.
Your shit posting is getting worse and worse having to spam retarded reaction images, proving you fill your hard drive with garbage just like your head. Might as well just tell us you fucking read One Piece in LN format, cause you sure as hell don't read the manga.
Now piss off nigger. Not even your mother could hold back from bitch slapping you if she saw you sperg out over a mere rank in a children's comic being turned into jobber tier.
She said her goodbye's to Nami. She's not coming. Carrot is the only one confirmed not shown this chapter. She said she wanted to go. There's also the awesome color spreed from last week.
The AsCE thing could've easily just have been a joke that Oda used to his benefit to link Sabo to the story.
Giving deeper meaning to really vague shit or presenting Luffy knowing Roger was Ace's dad as a joke are ways to make the retcons seem more natural to the story, but had he thought of that shit from the start he would've given more and clearer hints.
Which makes it even funnier to me how the "lesser" novas like Capone, Apoo or Uroge have much more interesting designs and skillsets than mf Kidd.
>edgy hothead magneto
I hope Oda already planned some nice creative uses for the magnetic fruit, otherwise let that fucker die in that cell.
I know his hands are locking, that's what I circled red. What I was wondering is: He is reaching back with both arms to encircle all people, so both arms have to make 360° - So there should be another line of arms.
Sabo's story felt so sudden and came across as Oda quickly replacing Ace since the character was so popular. If he really planned out his story as far back as Alabasta then he really dropped the ball on that reveal.
>Sanji's backstory unimpressive
Sanji had the series first great flashback, its the definitive tragic backstory other than his mentor not dying
>luffy and ace being kids to the most notorious people in the world
But the parallels to Luffy and Roger were introduced at the same time as Dragon, Oda clearly had a plan for Dragon that early to fake out the "Roger is Luffy's relative" hints
Douriki is a thing he used once and never again, probably the weakest idea in the story overall. I get it was supposed to rank the CP9, but it was such a specific idea it feels weird to never have it brought up since

Wasn't the only way to measure it by hitting whatshisface chapapapa or something? Not really convenient for measuring everyone else
>>Nami got a new dildo
As soon as I saw that page I immediately thought "huh, looks like a penis." Then i saw the panel where is changes all kinds of different sizes and thought "welp, everyone's gonna make dildo jokes now"
And I was right.
>Cute Rabbit that got the jump on Zoro
>Beaner Jaguar with a meh design
Rabbit >>>>>>> Jaguar m8 not even a contest tbqh.
He's not going, he's saying goodbye right there. And Pekoms is absent too, and Sanji's there even though he's supposedly the one getting rescued. The whole page seems to just be what Oda wanted to draw right then rather than any official Rescue Team dossier.
How is "edgy hothead magneto" worse than "Literally Just Al Capone"
Urouge hasn't done anything yet, but being a sky person from the island Enel destroyed has a lot of obvious future relevance.
Not to sound like a Capone hater now but he was clearly the least thought out. His power is interesting but pretty simple (as of Saboady), his design is bland, he had no interactions with other Supernovas. I love him now though, he's great as just a big cunty villain
>Beaner Jaguar with a meh design
It would be weird for Big Mom or Sanji's family to send out invitations to people who actually are befriended with Sanji.
I don't think this kind of stuff is in the newspaper, either, and just inviting herself or crashing the party would be stupig. What could Vivi hope to do?
Daily reminder that literally everyone besides Bellamy, Rebecca and Monet joined
So, will this guy show up at Reverie and rant about how he saw Dragon's threat coming years ago but nobody took him seriously and now it's too late?
