Chapter title is "Ray of light".
In Mirror World、Chopper tries to find Luffy and Co , but there are too many mirrors.
Sanji goes to deliver the dish to Pudding.
Luffy tries to escape even if his arms tear off.
3rd floor courtyard
Pedro is fighting Tamago. Tamago asks him why he came back.
Pedro strongly answers that Straw Hats are the only guys who can lead the world to dawn. Pedro slashes/bisects Tamago.
In front of Pudding's room
The alive door prevents Sanji from entering the room. He has no choice but to go to Pudding's location from terrace.
When Sanji sees the inside of the room, he finds Reiju on a chair and 3-eyed-Pudding.
Pudding sneers at Sanji(, whom she thinks is not near the room). Actually Pudding is one of Big Mom's favorite and she is good at acting.
Pudding was cheating Straw Hats.
Puddding whispers something to Luffy.
Pudding "I will shoot to kill that idiot, who fell in love with me as I expected, which is why I don't get married.
I won't let you keep alive anyway. Good Bye, pitiful rats."
Blood is falling from Reiju's leg. Reiju's arms are constrained.
Pudding "Mama wants clone soldiers and Germa science from the beginning.
The whole Germa Kingdom lies at anchor on our territory.
Thank you all you idiots for being invited to Sanji's political party.
We'll kill all Vinsmokes in tommorow's wedding."
Sanji shows an expressionless face listening to Pudding's talk secretly in thunderstorm.
- Big Mom is the only person who knows Pudding's true personality.
- When Sanji goes to Pudding's room, one of the guards asks him if he goes out.
Sanji answers, "I'm gonna go to be healed by a ray of light in this world" (chapter title).
We'll have to wait for visual confirmation on the spoilers' sense.
Whats clear is that, at this point, Puddings actions are very confusing and the writing is a bit dizzying for the average-demographic reader
While its true that some panels may have been interpreted as a hint of her hiding something, they still dont fully explain her ways
Either if shes playing sixth-dinensional chess on everyone, or if shes plain evil and a great actress, I think Oda wont leave it here
There are still things to explain because things dont add up either way, and right now it makes this situation really confusing
>Puddingfags are killing themselves right now.
Here's a thought..
What reason would Pudding have for breaking character? If she is this grand evil, whose true nature is not even known to her own siblings.. Then why does she go tell Luffy and Nami their plan?
That's right, she's telling as many people as possible that the Vinsmokes are getting shafted, hoping that this will cause everything to go to shit before the ceremony itself.
Pudding is helping.
What's even funnier is that Sanji is just going to be a major cuck and forgive her
NAMI VS PUDDING IS BACK UP!
NAMI VS PUDDING IS BACK UP!!
>What reason would Pudding have for breaking character?
its possible Reiju overhears a conversation between her and BM or something of the like
Nah honestly I think this arc's major purpose is to fix Sanji.
He needs to put his lust over women to the side and become fully loyal to Luffy and the SHs.
Him getting fucked over and realising that Luffy is more important to him than women is the best way to have this happen
THE PUDDING NAKAMA TRAIN HAS CRASHED AND BURNED! THE CARROT NAKAMA TRAIN IS GOING STRONG AND PICK UP SPEED!
>What the hell is Sanji's problem?
He's a thirsty faggot who is desperate for love because he never got it from his siblings or his father,, and his mother died at an early age.
Notice how One Piece is good when Sanji is a central character?
Fishman Island: Sanji nonessential, bad
First half of Dressrosa: Sanji essential, good
Second half of Dressrosa: Sanji nonessential, bad
Zou: Sanji essential, good
Wholecake island: Sanji essential, good
Depends what you mean by political.
OP has a lot of underlying politics that are hinted at subtly, however its connection to the real world is questionable at best.
I have my doubts Dragon will be a revolutionary socialist rather than a standard reactionary hero fighting against the evil that has masked itself in good through propaganda
Cry more LuNafag. I told you pudding was not going to save you.
>character development is now bad
>he can't see where this is going
>he doesn't notice this is another arc to solidy loyalty to Luffy
>he doesn't realise this is hyping up the eventual BM vs SH fight
Carrot is obviously best girl this arc but now we know there's only one pure (human) waifu left now.
>I-It was Capone g-guise look at the lamps
Where are they now?
>he saved both the remaining crewmembers and Zou itself
Pretty sure that was Caesar and Chopper, but whatever.
>Wano, poneglyph etc BS was pure filler
Oh, it's just bait. Nevermind then
Reiju and Carrot are my favorite girls of this arc desu.
There are as many reasons not to believe it was all just an act as there were for some of us to believe she was hiding things.
She is still being deceptive, if not on the whole 'I was playing my part for BMs sake', for other still unknown reasons.
>Luffy is crying in a jail cell like a little kid
Meanwhile brook is off paneling Big Mom.
Will Luffy and Luffyfags ever recover?
How was the first stages anon? It is obvious you are on the testing stage right now.
Should've used that one image of Sanji in his room cowering hoping Luffy doesn't do anything rash. But other than that 10/10
>Post yfw she actually uses dragon of the sugar flame.
Could be another angle here. Maybe Pudding really is evil, but she lied to Luffy in an attempt to get him fired up. She's not settling for an arranged marriage, she's aiming Luffy at BM so she can take over the family business
what if pudding is just pretending to be secretly evil?
>implying you being a retard is our fault
>mfw Zoro's dad is the long lost WB 2nd divsion commander that Ace replaced
>While the people who were suspicious of Pudding all along are celebrating their correctness, a lot of Pudding fans are understandably disappointed she isn’t their sweet little cinnamon roll who did nothing wrong and just wants Sanji to be happy.
>Please keep these fans in mind over the next several days and as the story develops as they might not be feeling as celebratory right now and they are allowed to have those feelings. Ok? Okay. Keep it classy guys.
>For the record, I was leaning towards her being good in the end but I spent a looooong time on the other side of the argument and I’m okay - this isn’t about protecting my feelings, I think she’ll be fun as a bad guy.
Sweet tears of puddingfags.
>even the author of this article trying to save face
you can't make this up
This is why you should love other boys instead of treacherous disgusting women.
It doesn't make any fucking sense for Pudding to have flashbacks about Lola trying to find her own way and standing under the rain alone and sad if she was just a deceptive bitch, spoilers are bullshit
>Everyone already forgot Viola was forced to be evil
Pudding is secretly pure. Don't forget Oda never draws bad people as cute.
There's no such thing as Puddingfag. You lyingfags made up false arguments for months, normal at some point people were pissed off.
Pudding has to be totally crazy. Pudding has to fool even her own family. Pudding has to act in the most nonsesical way possible in order for this twist to be believable. I don't have a problem with Oda doing that but don't act like her being evil is the logical outcome.
>what if pudding is just pretending to be secretly evil?
It's ok to cry you know
>tfw you're sanji right now
>have your way with me
A bit fucked up mother instinct that made her treat those kids as hers, despite of side effects from Caesar's experiments.
Also, servitude and life debt to Dodo, who used her and her sister's (Sugar) situation to gain their complete loyalty.
>made up false arguments for months
>they got sent to a deadly forest
>pudding wasnt there but her siblings were
>maybe its a trap?
>hurr durr youre autistic
The happiness stems from 6 months of being called an autist and being correct in the end. A fair number of people saw something that Oda was setting up and got grilled at the stake for it.
is like you didnt read the spoilers.
Are you implying that keeping dangerous prisoners in Impel Down is wrong? Did you allowed Hannyabal's speech go way over your head?
Besides, there is nothing wrong in having fetishes.
When Big Mom has been confirmed to spy on people with her homies? When Pudding in this scene is acting in front of her allies?
Do you understand that if Pudding knew Pedro and Brook were there, it does mean she let them go? Be serious 2sec it was never a valid argument when you have to justify it by "she's crazy". Again i have no problem with Oda justifying it like that. I'm just saying it was never a valid argument.
It was blatantly fucking obvious that pudding sold luffy out when she gave him the map but even then I didn't want to believe it. She fooled even the people who knew she was a fucking liar
And that's just refusing to see what was actually happening. I'm not sure how you arrive at the conclusion she was trying to help when she didn't mention the woods. It was a trap from the beginning.
Here's my take on this.
Pudding isn't really evil, she's just doing all this to cause tension between the vinsmokes/big mom to maybe start a fight between them, during the chaos of which, she can help luffy/nami/sanji/chopper/carrot/brook/pedro escape.
Otherwise it makes no sense for Oda to show panels of pudding being disapproving of big mom. She was crying because though she was saying what she said, her real emotions were that of crying.
not even a puddingfag btw
>THIS IS NAMI'S FACE AFTER HEARING HER BELOVED SANJI-KUN IS GONNA BE KILL SOON
HAHAHA LUNAFAGS BTFO
the woods wasn't the meeting point iirc. Everyone just went there because they thought they saw Sanji. Of course, a fake Sanji being there IS a trap, so this is more me clarifying than anything.
You have the right answer, not the right process.
I know that fucking idiot. That's not a problem.
Don't act as if it was an argument proving she's evil. Her being crazy is not logical at all, her behavior is not logical.
Oda disclosed in a SBS that they had a rough life before being groomed by Doflamingo. They were still nice at heart despite following bad orders.
Oda's cute = good natured rule for OP girls is never wrong.
This makes sense for why she's going evil. I mean sanji did explain to her how he had nobody on his side and that his family actually didn't care anything about him. So doing this to reiju and telling her that plan is a great way for her to get the vinsmokes involved in helping sanji escape. Plus if she knows that sanji is out there it would also push him into wanting to escape and not be in love with her( or so she thinks). Only thing that's gives me pause is the whispering thing. It's no point in telling luffy and Nami that unless she really is evil. Unless she thinks and knows that they would also try to help her escape too since they now know that BM wants to kill Lola for running away and would definitely kill pudding for ruining such a huge marriage also. So she's trying to cut ties with them before hand also so they can just leave with sanji and not worry about her. I'm calling it now then, she's pulling a viola but only difference this time is sanji will break his golden rule and slap the shit out of her to bring her back to her senses.
>puddinfags looking for possibilities where there are none
When Bobbin and other fodder reported to Mama during the FI arc Pudding was shown sitting with her tits and third eye out
The part of the spoilers that say that only Mama knows she's evil can't be real
Her being the daughter of Big Mom, no introduction box, Pedro warning them, her becoming a nakama being scenaristically hard to believe, Sanji having a wife being scenaristically hard to believe. All of this is ok, never argued about it.
Beach trap? Never, fuck you. I will never accept a scene proving she's genuine later being explained by her being crazy and fooling even her own allies for no good reason other than her being crazy as an hint.
>SaNafags get BTFO for a while during this arc and their cancerous posts are less common.
>Puddingfags get BTFO now SaNafags are back in full force with a vengence
Following /a/ One Piece threads is suffering.
The fact that the beach was a trap when they landed is what sparked major suspicion. More than any other evidence. It doesn't matter that you got tricked by a red herring scene later.
>every thread starts with SaNa shitposting
Are you blind?
Not true. Pedro warning them and "she was really vague when talking about Sanji, right right guys?" started it. After that fucking everything happening was said to be a proof of her being evil. Her really being evil doesn't make every arguments made correct.
Pic related she was scared she got caught.
Look at the sweat
Cant wait to read the chapter.
Just a thought that cross my mind, but what if Pudding is like a triple agent.
She could be playing BigMom and cancel the wedding, meaning she would either die or get disowned by her family, hence the tears...
>inb4 butteurs Puddingfag
I dont give a flying fuck about her
but it seems the tears like we saw last chapter seem real to me (even if she is a good actress, it doesn't seem fake to me)
You're looking at it backwards and trying to invalidate the claim based on that? You're a piece of shit I think. She was suspicious and never followed through on anything she said.
>Big Mom is the only person who knows Pudding's true personality.
Nah, she's just fucked up. It's like a Decoy Octopus, MGS deal. Gets so in to her role that she holds it around even those who know her.
She told Luffy and co because she's sadistic and knows no one will believe them (and no one can even contact them anyway, they're imprisoned).
She told Sanji because Sanji caught her beating up Reiju, throwing the disguise. She's beating up Reiju because either: She figured it out somehow, or they plan to kill the Vinsmokes with poison which Reiju could heal.
>she doesn't know anything about him except the obvious
Anon that arguement was always retarded. She knew he smoked and let me guess " she got that from his old wanted poster" ok so then you lyingfags could never explain how she knew that he was a gentleman, he was a great cook and wanted to return to his crew. None of those thing where obvious. Your argument is based on a " what if "
Saying pudding is doing the same thing as Sanji is retarded.
Why would Pudding want to make Sanji hate her when she already admitted Sanji would rather not marry her.
Same as the first 1 she doesnt need to convince Sanji for nothing.
Why would she threaten Luffy and Nami too? Literally no reason other than she is just a bitch.
Huh? Anon why would she mention to tamago that she had to go to the coast to meet luffy? That's just retarded, that's why she tried to get away with she had a prior engagement
>year of sanji
>he probably has cried every single day and things just keep getting worse
Fandom is going mad.
1)4chan is yelling ITSHABBENING and does not know what to do.
2) OJ are...lost.
3) AP is silent as fuck.
4) One-Piece.ru is polite, predictious, yet skeptical.
I swear the amount of speedreaders in this arc is off the charts.
People already saying that this twist was completely out of the blue and not foreshadowed at all.
Let me break it into three basic pointers for all you Spee D. Readers.
Point 1) Pudding didn't receive an introduction box. We've seen almost every major character in an arc getting one, and some even are re-introduced once their true identity is revealed (Momonosuke, for example) Pudding doesn't have one, which means we haven't seen her TRUE nature as of yet.
Point 2) Big Mom learning about straw hat having arrived only moments after they set foot on WCI. How? Pudding supposedly covered up for them, didn't she? Yet in the -very same chapter- big mom is singing with the homies, and revealing she learned about Luffy n co' having arrived. It's obvious Pudding snail'd Big Mom and told her of their arrival right after she sent them to Brulee.
Point 3) Pudding sending Luffy and the others to the Seducing Woods. She told them she'd meet them on the coast. But of course she wasn't there, only a random animal made from Brulee's powers. How? Pudding arranged this with Brulee. She told her the SH crew would arrive shortly, so Brulee used her powers beforehand to fuck with the SH crew and keep them busy. She was waiting when they arrived.
Many more points to make, but I'm sure it's easier to move a mountain than convince this bunch of delusionals that this twist was expected and foreshadowed chapters ago.
Pudding has split personality.
She becomes evil when she shows her 3rd eye, that's why we see Pudding worried about the strawhats even when no one can see her.
Don't tell anyone or I could lose my job on Jump.
SCREENCAP THIS POST
The leakers are taking the piss out of us with fake spoilers.
I'll donate 1000 bucks to Hirohito if I'm wrong, or else may the mods ban me from /a/ until the end of times
>all this empty hope from puddingfags
is over. You should know when to give up
IDK if the guy on side of Pudding is still in the thread or not, and I do see your point in that scene, but that can be easily covered up.
Possibility 1: She wanted to go to the forest to see her pray fall into her trap.
Possibility 2: She DID have a prev appointment, maybe a progres report with BM given that she is the only one that knows of Pudding real nature and told her the SH would arrive at the forest.
Or even a number 3: She knew Pedro and Brook where there, but could not catch them cuz that would have shown everybody else that she is in BM's side, and she wants to trick everyone other than BM herself
>everyone on Gol D Roger's crew was stupid enough to get tricked by Buggy when he was like 16 years old
Does this confirm that Buggy really is a genius or that Roger really isn't that great and just got to the end of the grand line by luck?
Adding to this.
Why would pudding attack Reiju? She knows Sanji hates his family and doesn't know what Reiju did for Sanji. She doesn't know Sanji cares for Reiju
This is not acting.
The delusional puddingfags are just that, delusional
i really dont care about pudding, just wondering about the meaning of the tears as they dont look fake to me.
Aaaah like only the third is showing her trueself or something? could be interesting, hope she is powerful then, just being a crafty bitch is not enough
just personal impression.
>There are people who think Pudding isn't going to be redeemed
Oda a Hack.
At least one of Roger's enemies was a DF user.
No way nobody on that shit didn't know shit about the DFs.
Devil Fruits are rare. Grand Line is dangerous, haki is rare, and so on. All of those shit writin
MSNBC is covering the news that pudding is evil
Oda cleverly solved Luffy doesn't lose any stamina or get hungry during the whole situation.
Big Mom clearly stated the creatures in the books aren't aging or anything they remain in the state in they were when they were sent into the book.
So if Luffy finally escapes he will be fine and he didn't need to break his promis about not eating anything which doesn't come from Sanji.
The woods can move as well though. That's a particular danger worth mentioning if she actually wanted to help out. But yeah I see what you're saying. Those clones were also telling.
>Big Mom clearly stated the creatures in the books aren't aging or anything they remain in the state in they were when they were sent into the book.
I wonder if she managed to capture a Roger Pirate in her book.
not all of them were monsters like Rayleigh and Buggy.
Nice so Pudding is evil. Caesar joins is next right?
i feel like a really big implicit thing about one piece's history is that the post-golden age of pirates world got REALLY powercreeped on average.
Sure you could have the Roger, the young WB/Garp, or even going backwards the Norland but those were probably just the very minor elite.
>All these people calling Pudding evil
>When she's just loyal to her loving mother
It's obviously the opposite. She'd be an evil traitor if she sided with some random pirates she just met instead of her own mother.
>lyingfags really believe Pudding be an ally when this is all over
It's like you fags haven't reading the same manga have for the past 20 years. I look forward to coming back here on the day you mofos get btfo.
Is this the weirdest character in one piece? (whose weirdness isn't attributed to a devil fruit)
How long have you guys been watching/reading one piece?
I've been watching since 2005, started reading it in 2007.
Damn, it's literally been more than a decade.
He already has Robin.
Cheer up Zori. You got the shitty cook's sis to deal with too
It was hinted from miles away and not exactly subtle either. The whole shit with 3 eyes and being chill while Big Mom eats some nigga? Being so painfully unrealistic nice? It was given that something more is going on but the whole "fake being nice but be a bitch" thing is so overused in media. It would be more of a "oh, I see" moment instead of something surprising. Oda is better than that.
Started watching around 2005 too, started watching again in 2009 or so (Thriller Bark) after I found out about streaming and was forced to learn English. Started reading in 2010 or so. Wonder if I manage to survive till Raftel.
Her own mother would eat her up just because she can't have a candy.
I'm calling this fake, why would she be a cunt and then reminisce about Lolas if she meant a lot to her? I guess after all the shit Oda has pulled with Sanji, this isn't very far to believe.
Franky has Kyuin as a girlfriend.
I thought Robin wanted to fuck Chopper?
When Franky and Chopper's bodies got switched Robin seemed pretty disgusted that Franky was even using Chopper's mouth to talk.
Fatfags are the worst, just saying.
Robin likes cute things. Franky was ruining everything
>Zoro x Perona
Perona is Mihawk's waifu
One Piece tends to subvert basic tropes like that. See Violet or even Robin. Shit, even Nami looked like a total bitch for couple pages but they all had their reasons and their "nice personality" wasn't a complete fake.
>Zoro x Perona
>Usopp x Nami
These make no sense.
Rest is legit.
The following relationships are canon
Zoro x Tashigi
Sanji x Nami
Robin x Franky
Luffy x No-one, if he lived past the end of One Piece he would have relations with Hancock but he won't live past the ending.
>Will Sanji finally beat up a woman
Mihawk is even more swordsexual than Zoro
But Miwahk probably got married.
>Sanji finally hits a woman.
>Luffy & co: Huh? W-wait Sanji didn't you say you'd never hit a women?
>Sanji: Yes that's right. I'll never hit a woman, but I have no problems with hitting a monster.
whenever the anime started enies lobby. Say what you will about 4kids, but I never would have become ineterested in one piece or even known about it without that piece of shit adaptation
Am i wrong for wanting Brook/Nami stalemate Big Mom during this arc?Not outright beat her or anything,just these 2 working together against her and managing to keep her powers at bay.
Didn't notice whether the intro box is really that consistent, you might be right to be fair. Also it's not like her 3rd eye has to be a special ability. There were tons of weird characters already.
>pudding will get defeated by someone this arc.
As long it's a good fight, why not. I don't even dislike the idea of Pudding being a great actor and a pure fake but the characterization should've been done more subtly. From the point we saw her chilling with Big Mom it was always a very likely possibility and takes the surprise away.
tfw even balls deep in Reiju's pussy Sanji would still be thinking about Nami
Will Big Mom really go down this arc? Seems kinda weird, wouldn't make sense for a yonkou to be defeated in 50 chapters and with the weaker half of the crew when it took 100 chapters to take down Doffy
When did SJ start getting published in the U.S.? I remember buying it from a blockbuster. First issue I ever bought has yusuke on the cover. I though One Piece was shit back then because the art was cartoony. Now it's one my favorites and I can't stand any of the other manga I read back then.
>mfw when Brook defeats Big mom with no effort
This kinda bother's me too.We had to wait for the 2nd half of Doffy's arc for him to join the battle and learn a bit more about him while with Big Mom we already know her powers,have seen her use them and know her goal.I guess it might've been cause he was hyped long before but i have this gut feeling that Big Mom won't be the last boss of this arc,more like a mid-boss before someone else comes and finishes the job or something.
Alternatively,Nami makes her see the wrong of her ways and Mom teams up with Luffy leading into a "war with Kaido" arc.
>falling for this meme
Luffy had a lot of help to defeat Doflamingo and almost lost.
Cracker was not even able to hurt him and the only help Luffy got was some water so the fight would be funny.
You mean, from the point we saw her disaproving Big Mom behavior?
People acting like this twist was obvious... No ones believed it anymore. Lyingfags were mocked. Almost absent from the threads.
In order for this to work. Pudding has to be fooling her own family. She has to do this only for the sake of doing it.
Oda went as far as possible.
I don't even like Doflamingo, but it is true that he is stronger than Luffy.
Luffy had to hide for 10 minutes after fighting him using Gear 4th, without any help he would die right there
Breh Donfamingo could even hurt G4 and got his ass kicked whenever he was in that mode. Not only Cracker an even match for G4 and could actually hurt Luffy in it he was only defeated by having his own attack reflected back at him. Luffy didn't even manage to touch Cracker ordinarily despite havng help from Nami and homies.
Cracker would be hard countered by Law, there wouldn't even be a fight for Luffy to finish.
Room slices dozens of biscuit soldiers at once in half like Sugar's immortal nutcrackers, the real Cracker trying to run or hide gets teleported with a rock and he faints from unbearable pain after taking a single surprise stab from Law..
Disapproval is a too strong word for it, she didn't seem to fazed over some random being devoured. Besides the whole eye thing, hinting that there is more to her than ... meets the eye. Given how it was never revealed afterwards, it was pretty much given that a major twist is incoming, her being a liar being the most obvious option.
Had Oda skipped that scene and perhaps given another softer hint like making Pedro more suspicious the whole thing would be a lot more surprising while still foreshadowed.
>People acting like this twist was obvious... No ones believed it anymore. Lyingfags were mocked.
While it was obvious, it being SO obvious always offers the chance that shit isn't as simple as it seems. Take Tobi - Obito.
>She has to do this only for the sake of doing it.
Which should ideally have some establishing too The perfect acting mastermind who raped Reji works in a bakery for fucks sake. That's quite the dedication for the fake persona.
Shichibukai wastly vary in power, as do yonko crews it seems.
>The perfect acting mastermind who raped Reji works in a bakery for fucks sake. That's quite the dedication for the fake persona.
You can be a complete psycho and still have other hobbies/interests.
His offense was greater than Doffy's too, he actually pierced G4's haki, something the strings never did. Cracker's problem, in addition to being a glass cannon, was lack of skill, he had better offense and defense than Doffy but his only tactic when fighting was to create infinite soldiers to tire out his enemy before he finishes them off. Makes sense with his personality of hating pain, he avoided direct combat despite his freakish physical strength.
So overall I think Doffy is better, because he has incredible endurance, maneuverability, and long-range attacks. But Cracker has better strength and a better shield move.
Why? Multiple characters have questioned Pudding's word. It turns out they were right to have. We also never saw her personal thoughts and saw very little of her on her own.
On top of this, you can't flat out reject the idea that this isn't also some kind of ruse. I doubt it, at the moment, but you never know.
>Oda said Tashigi has a crush on Zoro
It might be a weird concept for 4channers but one sided crushing doesn't cause relationships.
Franky and Robin are legit though. Handjobs are a solid start.
I'm not a Puddingfag, so, no.
I find it pretty funny you are trying to argue there is nothing between Zoro and Tashigi while saying Franky and Robin are a thing.
The only power level I really care about is the gap between Garp and Akainu. I want so badly to see Grap just wipe the floor with Akainu's face.
One sided crushes can start relationships though.
Reddit or Tumblr?
>D: In chapter 692, there's a scene where Nami and Luffy reunite. You can see a stocky-looking sailor who appears to be carrying Tashigi on his shoulder. That's her, right?! Why is she riding him? She told Zoro, "Let me down when we find my men." Is Zoro really that worried about her health? Heehee. --Someta
>O: Well spotted. Yes, that is Tashigi, but that wasn't on Zoro's orders. I think Tashigi being embarrassed by Zoro was simply that she didn't want her subordinates to see her being helped by a pirate, but being carried by her own men is different. I suppose she might be embarrassed in a different way, though. I don't really know how young women think.
Cracker`s offense was shit.
The only time he was able to hurt Luffy was when he caught him by surprise and still he didn't deal much damage.
If he was stronger Luffy would lose his arm right there.
Cracker was clearly a defensive tank king whose fighting style functioned around outlasting his opponents and wearing them down. The only reason it didn't work was because Luffy's a big eater.
Outside of the whole "they are team mom-dad" stuff confirmed by Oda, they seemed suspiciously comfy near each other and there was some flirty line between them (something about Franky's body after he went back to normal)
Sure, Oda could squeeze in some Tashigi - Zoro shit but he sure didn't do it for now.
Pretty much never, unless it's the genre. One sided crushing on a guy who rather plays with his own sword sound even less promising.
>>almost cut gear 4 arms off
A few pages later Luffy was completely fine, picture related.
My point is, if his attack was strong he would cut Luffy's arm right there.
The only thing Cracker had going for him was his top tier defense.
Yea that was his whole fighting style he hates pain he kills with bug bites so he wouldn't get hurt, but it still took luffy 14+ hours and namis help to beat him even if he wasn't physically stronger then luffy he was the better fighter.
Also through the entire Cracker - Luffy fight, Luffy was pretty much uninjured, just tired. Crackers offense is pure shit.
Miss Monday did nuffin' wrong.
What about Monet though? Will she come back and kick Puddings ass? There is no way Oda gave her a backstory months after off paneling her just for the keks.
>Luffy was eating for hours
After Nami soften them up and Cracker killed all the homies or are you just going ignore those parts to fulfull your shitposting agenda? and as anon said above Doflamigo couldn't even scrath gear 4 luffy but kick the living shit out luffy in general and survived the first gear 4 assault.
He was not strong enough to defend Luffy's attacks, but he wasn't defeated easily.
Luffy lost all his haki before he could defeat Doffy, those 10 minutes would be enough to kill him.
>His attacks were shit beforee the rain
No they weren't They cut luffys arm deep and sent him flying, if anything nami making them soft also weaken his defense because they weren't nearly as hard and solid so he couldn't hit as hard. Why are you so upset about Cracker being stronger then luffy?
>They cut luffys arm deep
Where did you see it?
That cut was barely strong enough to hurt Luffy, next page he was alright.
Nami did weak his defense, but he would never defeat Luffy anyway.
>That cut was barely strong enough to hurt Luffy
