END OF CHAPTER
This chapter isn't meant to come out for over a week. We're technically on a week break now but the chapter has been leaked. We get the next chapter on around 12th Jan going by the normal schedule.
>mfw puddingfags are still in denial
So are Pudin powers the same as Sugar's??
I want my waifu Reiju back
At this point I feel like Prometheus and Zeus are BM's main fighting method. She can't just remove the souls of her opponents in a fight, Luffy's Haki would probably resist it too.
>So are Pudin powers the same as Sugar's??
Not since pic related has there been a more fun and unexpected betrayal.
Sanji better pull an awesome comeback.
Because current him obviously completely broken and useless.
Aaaand suddenly I want him to marry Pudding.
Or at least fuck her.
It's not gonna happen because it's One Piece, but it would be awesome poetic justice.
Plus she is fun and looks much more alive when sincere(assuming she is).
Man this is the one and only time I feel it would be great if zolo was here. He would be somewhere where sanji couldn't see him observing quietly also. And then he would chop this bitch us.
I want to marry Jinbe, along with many other things :3
Why isn't he your husbando yet, /a/?
>can take people's memories out of their head, then read or rewrite them
>can turn people into toys that follow her commands, everyone forgets they once existed; also, turns user into a child
Clearly, a 1:1 rip-off.
>oh no, he's given X numbers of years to big mom with only an unspecified Y numberof years left to live.
>he's going to die guys.
>just like pedro.
You realize this is fucking One Piece?
Nami needs to defeat Pudding immediately.
Well, aside from being the best bro, Bon-chan is like an all-you-can-eat-buffet.
>Sanji continues trying to light up his cigarette, but he can't. He hangs down his head and sheds tears with his body trembling.
Sanji fell sp low.
Thank you Oda.
He'll probably just let it happen.
His ray of hope is gone completely and he can't go back because of Zeff.
Also considering he got shat on from all sides ever since this arc began he probably just lost his will to live too.
First he needs some mental support from his friends before he can go kick some ass again.
I honestly hope pudding is the first girl Sanji decides to kick and beat the shit out of. Some character development right there that not all women are meant to be treated well and lose your self respect for.
>Pudding shows various kinds of facial expressions
I can probably see zoro not be a douche to Sanji anymore after this arc if they do pop up and probably blame his family for making him a wuss to him. I'd be interesting to see zoro against one of the brothers like ichiji or something.
I can see some gintama in this chapter alone especially with pudding.
The comical character dialogue and how critical it comes off with the expressions. I think odas been reading if a lot lately.
>tfw 2016 was supposed to be sanji's year
>tfw didn't ask for this
Have you not been reading this past arc lately? Zoro is fortunate to not have lived a hellish life of running away from a shit family; he most likely probably got lost in his past like he always does. Sanji was doomed from the start.
So the best fish is back and confirmed to be joining at the end of this ark. Now all we need is the best bun to join too
>Unless she is a sweet commander
She probably is.
And I repeat: Sanji needs to sort this shit out himself.
Maybe by using his wits, maybe by beating her in a fight(he can dress as an okama as a clever workaround), perhaps some other way.
But it's obviously his mess, which he needs to sort out, not Nami's or Luffy's.
Stop with this already. It's not confirmed either it's Germa or Big Mom assassins who have been sent.
Bege or Vito said "You better not refuse Big Mom's invitation" when they played the Zeff card. And she's the one known for threatening the lives of your family friends.
It's not possible to know wether it's Germa or Big Mom for sure. But the most likely at the moment is Big Mom.
Well I don't blame the king for being angry. He lost thousands of men on that journey. But then he went and had a false witness at his execution say that everything Noland had ever said was lies. So yeah fuck the king.
The Journey was an entirely selfish one, he was happy to throw away all the lives of his men just to get the gold. If the island hadn't been blasted up into Skypeia the king would have likely ordered Norland to attack the Shandians.
Weak? No way. Not only does she have deceptive acting skills, but she has a fruit power and overpowered his sister whose also pretty powerful also.
In all honesty; I doubt she's nowhere near as weak as she makes herself come off as. She's probably a lot stronger than she gives off.
Remember; she's s damn good actress; and for all we know; may try to overpower big mom somehow also playing with her as well.
We never know how this will pan out.
>He's boring as fuck.
Don't insult my husbando, you tasteless fuck! He's beautiful, and I love him.
>tfw you will never hug Jinbe
I agree... He's a cool dude don't get me wrong. Seeing him once in a while doing some badass shit is always nice and all but... It's like Rayleigh, he would get boring if we was hanging around everytime.
I think it's a sex thing like the Rebecca etc. But for gay people who wants to suck his fat cock. He has the body type, twinks dream about or something.
>may try to overpower big mom somehow also playing with her as well.
I think that she knows that Sanji is listening.
My bet on her is instigating the war between Germa, SH and BM.
Then she would pull the coup to finish the weakened winner.
People like Jinbei because he's a chill bro with some of the most hardcore loyalty in an entire manga worth of incredibly loyal people. He has a fun still mostly unexplored fighting style, some really neat moments in the war like when he stared down Akainu for Luffy.
I think my favorite Jinbei moment is when he caught Akainu's followup blow on Ace with his bare hand and got burned for it. His friend was dying and he and they all knew it, but he refused to let his body get desecrated more because that's just the guy he is.
I can't speak for the Jinbei husbandofag, but I genuinely like him as a character.
>Jinbe will never hold you tightly with his large arms and press you against his chest
His true loyalty was to the Luffy, Whitebeard, Ace, and his island, he only worked for her to protect his island because of said loyalty.
And despite that he still has enough of a sense of honor to formally quit her crew instead of bailing like another pirate would.
Sanji will probably go okoma. Oda can still make him look cool. He can go with a Corazon kind of look.
Duuuuuuude; you so got it on point right there yo. For real. That's a really cool way of thinking it like that. I can totally see that happening as the climax of this arc and her being the main villain over mom and everyone else and try to wipe out history and their memories as their leader.
She probably already used her power on mom already to give her the benefit of the doubt as her favorite if you think about it. She's literally wading her time.
It makes me think. An anon, said the first dude (Hawkins pirate) looked like a guy from a music band. And asked if the others were dispatched in others crew.
This dude is one of them, right? And what's the name of the group again?
Brook never needed redeeming though
While he doesn't do a whole lot for the Strawhats, he pulls his weight, finishes the fights he starts and has saved the other Strawhats on several occasions
brooke is literally a nobody lmao
the only strawhats that matter are the original east blue squad and maybe robin/franky, hell even chopper has his uses
brooke is literally useless, remove him from the strawhats and not much would change
When there were less SHs and the manga had a simpler pace/focus, there was much more interaction and banter between crewmembers. So the original quintet kinda got better established personalities than the rest of the cast. You can add Vivi to the same group, Chopper is borderline.
From Alabasta onwards the story started getting super big arcs with lots of factions and side characters and chapters/pages/panels started focusing on many different things simultaneously so it's been ever harder for Oda to really build his characters outside of pre-designated story relevant scenes or small panel sidegags.
What's wrong with Brook?
He's interacting nicely with the crew, has enough screentime, a nice backstory, an original DF, an original character design, an original fighting style, he's decently strong, has his lot of cool moments, some nice lore with him being the oldest, he's a rockstar world wide known of his music skills, he's the main element of every "end of arc party".
The dude has no real flaw. He's just lacking a very big evenement
I swear people are picking on him because of Nami and only because of that. It started around that time when they said "No shut up Brook you were not a member yet at that time" when they were talking about Arlong in FI.
I think Oda realized this problem pretty early and so he often splits the crew up for the arcs. We had Luffy/Robin/Franky/Ussop during Dressrosa and now Brook/Chopper/Nami/Sanji have their turn to shine.
But Now he knows his only chance Is beat Big Mom and save Luffy.
It's okay to want to protect Zeff, but on this position where Big Mom won't keep her promise I'm sure Zeff would tell him to save his Friends, even at the risk of his life.
If a war between the vinsmokes, strawhats, and BM break out, Zeff wont be targetted.He's a nobody.
At most, she'll target Luffy's village but Garp is there on vacation and shit's all over who ever comes.
You aren't wrong, but his character has been stale for a while. Even the Jora victory felt hollow.
It seemed like Brooke had lost his integrity as a character. His serious mode and unyielding loyalty to Luffy make him a top tier nakama.
Shut up, retard. If you can't see this manga for what it is now, you're hopeless. It isn't a masterpiece anyway.
>pudding now has Heavens Door
Huh I find find mind powers all about the same In anime.
Also anyone have a good link to the gold movie?
>Sanji is never going to poison food
Citation required. His behavior changes when it comes to food. He was ok using the knives in the kitchen, and he likes general idea of weaponizing the food(to buff himself and his crew but weaponise nonetheless).
And the only person whom he likes happens to be immune to poison.
It's one of the options, yes. The biggest problem is that he becomes as flexible as a pig iron when dealing with women.
TB was good and Brook in TB was a good character worthy of joining the SHs. The problem is as I mentioned above, once they're in the ride they just become part of the charactersoup that is every arc where the focus has to be split so many different ways (including arc-exclusive characters who tend to get the main development), that it's hard to build a sense of each crewmembers' presence in the minute dealings of the others. With someone like Brook who got added so late into the story this problem is at its worst and since he isn't AS gimmicky/instantly memorable like Franky with his weird robot shit and catchphrases, he feels way too minor for a main party member.
This is also something I fear might happen to whoever joins the crew at this point. They just wouldn't have been through enough shit with them for any attachment to feel real. No 3D2Y (it was already a stretch for Brook and even Franky I'd say), no worrying about their captain's mental state, no collective milestone achievements like crossing the Reverse Mountain or reaching the NW, no real journey to speak of. I don't particularly care one way or the other about it but I think the Fleet thing was a wise move by Oda precisely because of this phenomenon.
>And the only person whom he tolarates happens to be immune to poison.
Poisoning food goes against his autistic as fuck cooking creed and the groom isnt cooking anything in this wedding reception.
Oda is really smart in the way he's managing his different characters. That's one of his best quality. He know how much exposure they need to stay interesting.
Like the way he handled Law was really nice. He put the "edgy good looking dude" into the light for a long time (as a lot of fans wanted) but added moment when they were making fun of him and characters disrespecting him (Barto). He din't overshadow the rest of the cast. And he made him leave the story as soon as needed.
He also loves making people look bad for a certain amount of time only to give them a really big moment after to add contrast and power to their big scene. The God Usopp one was so funny. Everyone was like "huh i hate Usopp, useless character blabla" for a month and then he had one of the best scene in the whole manga to shut your mouths. I'm telling you Sanji will get something real. Same goes for Kid.
>Poisoning food goes against his autistic as fuck cooking creed and the groom isnt cooking anything in this wedding reception.
Yes, probably. I said that I don't believe it myself: >>151547606 But it would be cool.
Some sleeping drugs is more believable option.
Except he did a shit job at it during Dressrosa, which was 80% Law, Gladiators, and the Rikus.
-Robin didn't do shit.
-Zoro and Franky pulled their weight, but their personalities were at their most bland, especially Zoro
Only Ussop was handled well overall, and even then we still had that awful scene where he ran away from Sugar and Trebol.
Being a coward is a key component to Ussop's character, like Nami's greed, Sanji's lechery or Zoro's poor sense of direction. He might have ran away but once he fully came to appreciate just how much was riding on it and how everyone was depending on him he was able to stand up against these overwhelmingly powerful antagonists.
That's cause if the full crew had stayed or if the half of the crew that stayed in Dressrosa had really worked on it. They would've wreckd Doffy before ten minutes of birdcage.
By early, I mean in this arc.
The Tamate Box is going to blow up, Brook has been propped up in an arc involving a villain with soul powers, Nami has been shown to have some form of control over Big Mom's storms, and other factors seem to be leading up to a confrontation that tilts surprisingly well in Luffy's favor.
Even with only half the crew you still had powerhouse Gladiators+Law+A fucking admiral that barely did jack shit. One of the biggest problems with the ending of Dressrosa is how little Gear 4 mattered, Zoro or Fujitora could have stopped Doffy even if Luffy didn't finish him.
Honestly, for me it only added to the whole thing. It's like Zoro getting lost, being late but still saving the day in the most flashy way possible. God Usopp moment was amazing.
Usopp's actual moment in Dressrossa was the powerlevel thingy with Haki. The whole coward schtick felt redundant for his character.
Oda could've still made the God Usopp thing happen, but frame his confrontation and posterior win-by-luck in a different manner than actually, honestly going for the same exact "don't care anymore gonna drop everything" angle and take it wholly seriously as if Enies Lobby+Thriller Bark+fucking 3D2Y had never happened.
>Everyone was like "huh i hate Usopp, useless character blabla" for a month and then he had one of the best scene in the whole manga to shut your mouths
Really? Though that sniping sugar from super far away and unlocking haki was kino as shit. Viola sucked him off so hard,Sanji would be jealous
The biggest issue for me is Fujitora and Sabo. For Fuji, ok i kind of get why he did nothing but Sabo? He had no reason to not take down Doflamingo.
Honestly if they wanted, they could've ended the arc as soon as Sugar as been knocked off the first time.
Yes. I remember it for well. I was arguing with people over it a lot. People seriously believed this wasn't a set up for a big moment. In retrospect i think... They were most probably naruto fans. Because at this time there were people who really tought the second half of the crew wouldn't get their arc...
This. Oda obviously wanted to give Usopp a "low point" so that his redemption would be all the more satisfying, but it just felt repetitive and out of character.
I think he's doing something similar with Sanji right now, but in a much better written way.
I'm not a Zorofag and I hope he gets his shit pushed in on Wano but you can't deny the fact he overdeveloped for the New World and hasn't had a serious fight since Ryuuma.
Oh right I forgot about that, make that THREE other characters who could have stopped the big bad of the arc. It'd be like if Ace had hung around in Alabasta.
sabo was busy with other matters and trusted luffy to take doffy down
but yeah doffy fucked himself over way too hard, even if he beat luffy he'd still have zoro/fujitora/sabo/cavendish/etc. to deal with
He's been milking it since he decided to rip off DBZ.
Their job was to investigate Doflamingo shady business in the first place (the previous ones had been taken down by Sugar). And do you really believe Sabo has to ask permission to take down a guy who threaten the lives of a whole country?
Toriyama is such an underrated artist and colorist
Dressrosa thing was that everyone wanted to leave the battle to others. >Usopp wanted to leave the battle to the tontanas
>Franky just stalled and left the fight to others
>half the SH's left the fight to the other half
> Robin didn't help Kryos at all
>Sabo left the fight to the SH's
> Fuji left the fight to the SH's
> Law and Luffy left the fight to the gladiators on their way to the plateu
> Zoro insta took down Pica and left the fight to the rest.
If the entire group has swarmed the Doffy family and then swarmed Doffy things would've been over too soon.
Luffy was arguably the only SH that cared about beating Doffy.
>Jack, one of Kaido's calamities is a Mammoth zoan
>He also appears to have Drake, a tyrannosaurs zoan, in his crew
I'm dearly holding out that the third powerhouse in Kaido's crew is a swordswoman with the sabertooth zoan who will simply speed demon all over Zoro's shit when he tries to take her lightly.
Not really, the straw hats do rely on their captain a lot though. Zoro was helping with the cage after he stomped pica, Robin protected the Princess and rightful heir to the throne of Dressrosa, Sabo had other pressing matters to take care of and trusted that Luffy would defeat Doffy, Fujitora was busy protecting civilians, Usopp took out Sugar, Franky did his part at the factory. And of course Luffy and Zoro left the plateu for the mooks, they had more pressing matters.
I'm not arguing their reasons, I get them that's why I like how Dressrosa plays out, but if the SH's had been entirely devoted to taking down Doffy as a team instead of delegating that job to others, they would've roflsompled Dressrosa, even if no one bothered in slowing the birdcage.
They all did their part and they were important parts, sure, but they didn't give their 100%.
pudding will redeem herself and become a strawhat ally by the end of this arc or else i'll kms
Triple agent? Don't really care for trickery so much not that it should be too unusual for pirates, just gets boring if it repeats a lot, just had Viola and a few of the royal army that became gladiators or whatever.
So far, remember Viola first was just a dancer that asked Sanji for help, then tried to catch the SHs through him, then became an ally. If Pudding switches it would be Viola 2.0, but I'd prefer that not happen, too much repeating.
>Usopp voices Shigechi
>Sanji voiced Polnareff in All Star Battle
>Chopper voices Mannish Boy
yfw she can literally project onto other people
Holy shit he looks miserable. When characters are sad, Oda usually draws them crying their eyes out, mouth wide open and snot splashing around. Sanji looks so much better than them without this over the top bullshit. This panel here is pure art.
I'm not even a Sanjifag but it really hurts to see him like this.
The guy has to be at the utter rock bottom
>Hated by his family, couldn't even protect a cute chef, father outright loathes him as a failure
>Just realized the wonderful woman that was the last ray of light he had is in fact an evil bitch who makes fun of him relentlessly
>Explosive collars on wrist+hit on Zeff, can't run away
>Realizing he's literally just an insignificant, expendable pawn on a chessboard that nobody cares about
>And he just severed his ties with the only people who do
Agreed. We've all been shitting on Sanji since his nosebleed fiasco in FI and then when he nearly broke his leg against Vergo. But this chapter... if Oda has a massive turnaround planned then he's set things up perfectly for it.
Don't mind me, just making space for this chapter's additions to the YEAR OF SANJI
>tfw well get one of these arcs next year just with Zoro and some messenger telling him that his old village got raided with everybody slaughtered and that Kaido raped and murdered his parents
>You now Nakama with cool kid, who really impressed you
>Chilling at helmsman spot
>Suddenly Navigator-san start yelling and beating you for nothing
>Long nose and tanuki running circles in panic
>bushido fights with cook
>Mr. Skeleton do 45 jokes non stop around the mast
>Cyborg man do strange poses
>Only Poneglyph Lady have some calm
>Luffy jump on crow's nest screaming about islands
>Everyone suddenly start party
>You didnt get jokes
>Poneglyph Lady make dark death predictions after every joke
>Tanuki with sticks in the nose and mouth looks horrible
>bushido fights with cook, again
>Navigator start beat crap from Luffy
>You don't know what to do
>Long nose constantly interrupt party with some kind of nonsense shit
>bushido want's to drink with you every half of hour
>Drunk Cook look as if he want to prepare you on grill
>Luffy laughts and screaming every minute
>Cyborg man still do strange poses
>You want back to your fishman crew.
I was just enjoying his suffering before, but this is too much now. It can't get any worse, can it?
Bobbin rapes Nami in front of Sanji while he is getting gangbanged by some okamas
Brook needs some milk. Where is the Milk ministress with her huge titties? Cow-Cow fruti model Milk Cow
In the OP universe, strong enough swordsmen can emit energy from their swords which can either cut, concuss or punch through people and objects. Its a bit like the force from Star Wars, but channeled from the users body through their swords
AN ANON FUCKING CALLED THIS WHEN THESE TWO WERE SHOWN WITH PUDDING IN FRONT OF HER SWEET SHOP. SOME FUCKER CALLED THIS EXACT SCENARIO, THAT THEY'D BE INTRODUCED WITH TITLE BOXES AFTER WE'D LEARNT SOMETHING ABOUT PUDDING
Well not as bad as Xusasu I suppose, translating names always amusing.
Would be amusing if her name isn't actually Pudding thus why we haven't had a proper introduction plate yet.
Jinbe has both arms and at least a leg. So what he lost, his honor or some of his lifespan?
>Brook standing up to face Big Mom head on
The skeleton has bigger balls than anyone else on this island.
I'd guess she's going easy on him, wants to know why he's after the poneglyph in the spoiler or something.
Seems we forgot to repost it this thread.
In any case they're in her territory, basically she has all the advantage so she can toy with them as she likes once she finds each one in her mind. Though it will be curious how her power and his mesh, he has power over her minions and he's technically already died.
Things I loved:
-Brook super badass against a fucking Yonkou
-Luffy and Nami super happy to see Jinbe
-Sanji leaving the flowers, but the basket with the food is nowhere to be seen. I hope he brings it to Luffy. I would probably die in tears seeing this
What is Chopper exactly asking? The mirrors, if they talk back, can't know Sanji, but if he tried to describe him to them he would surely mention the curly eyebrows. What if they end up where Reiju or the brothers are?
>imblying he not a MOTIVATED skeleton
>Lone skeleton bard swordsman against the forces of nature and one pissed off fat woman
Every single thing in this panel is transcendent.
>Blazing whirlwind of fire surrounded at the feet
>Clothes are torn and ragged
>Ponyglyph on his back ready to get the fuck out of here
>Big Mom's skull hat is deeply concerned for his skelebro
The more I look at this panel the more god-tier it really is, the mad man actually snuck in panel of the year 2 days before New Years.
As much as I like brook. I will dislike it if that ever happens. Big mum portrayal will be underwhelming as fuck. You don't do this to important characters such as the yonkos.
It already is underwhelming. Half of a SH's minicrew challanged her on her home turf and send on of her commanders flying. If they ruin the wedding, steal the poneglyphs, bomb her face and poach her crewmembers, then BM's reputation means nothing.
I am alright with luffy defeating cracker since gear 4th pushes luffy to above commander level and I don't think Smoothie and Katakuri will be defeated in this arc. Chopper and jinbei only defeated the low ranking members of her crew so I don't really see the problem.
I'm really hoping that this arc is a chance for Brook to really shine. I've loved his character ever since the Laboon reveal, so despite not having as much attachment to the crew as the original East Blue gang he already has some attachment to the crew thanks to a common thread. It's such a shame that after so many years he hasn't had as much development as the others.
Shit, Luffy saved him from 50 years of loneliness. If that doesn't make anyone attached to their captain I don't know what the fuck will. Dude became a famous rock star and used his world tour as a ruse to throw it all away just to get back with his crew.
>I'm really hoping that this arc is a chance for Brook to really shine
Are you blind? It already is!
Post TS Brook has had some of the best and most plot-relevant secondary fights
Damn, BM and her crew appears pretty pathetic so far. Pudding seems the only cool character there so far and her DF is weak as fuck too.
Also holy shit, Sanji gets more pathetic every time we see him. I hoped he had a better plan than trusting BM pirates not acting like pirates and getting totally fooled by a chick? Is he officially out of monster trio by now?
Year of Best Skelly, my friend.
new jersy low tide on the hottest day of summer.
She got a shitload of non-fodder soldiers and the most of them can use haki. The likes of Cracker would be able to give any admiral a good fight. Also her army has a lots of hax df powers
>>The likes of Cracker would be able to give any admiral a good fight.
Unfortunately nope. Marco and jozu are the only one that can give any admiral a good fight excluding akainu.
Yeah, I've been following it since the old US Monthly Jump and it saw an uptick in popularity after Arlong (though still overshadowed by Naruto and Bleach since anime culture at the time was more into those two since OP had a more western feel and goofy artstyle). It was one of the first major instances of world building in the series, especially in the aftermath when Luffy got his first bounty.
I still enjoy the East Blue arcs aside from Kuro but looking back there are is a fair amount of shit that shows it was Oda's first attempt at serialization. But hey, fast forward 20 years and it's one of the most popular series in Jump.
Her devil fruit really doesn't lend itself to her being a great fighter. She's probably got a lot of raw power considering she's so big, but I'd argue her real strength is in her military power.
Which, in hindsight, makes Bege joining up with her make perfect sense.
Doflamingo used string clones to fight and stayed away from direct confrontations every time a fight broke out near him. For years.
We can't know how strong Big Mom is until she actually fights.
It's not even hax, it's basically Sugars fruit that takes more effort/time to use and only affects one person. Also we still don't know how good she's at using the gun. Reji probably didn't expect getting ganged on and shot by people who wanted to marry her brother.
After so many lows, the heights gotta be crazy and go beyond "Sanji does one cool thing that improves the situation a lot".
His real form design screamed FOODER. Hell, he only managed to injure Luffy once.
The book guy seemed to have pretty nice powers but we have no idea how effective he is in real combat. Tamago got done in by a furry. Brûlée looked interesting but got owned in her own world.
>The likes of Cracker would be able to give any admiral a good fight.
His fruit would probably get affected by the elements of the old Admirals too much. Kizaru is pure hax and only limited by being high most of the time. Maybe against Fujitora, but he would probably throw the "clones" back at him.
Yeah, her main power is probably the military power/connections in the underworld.
It's given that her raw power is high, just how high compared to the admirals and other yonko? Probably not so much.
True, but Oda has given us blue balls with him doing cool shit a fair amount of times by skipping to another scene immediately after. His snippets in Punk Hazard were great and I don't recall that issue happening.
I just wish we could get more than a brief scene of him doing cool shit building up to the next cool scene five chapters later.
>>His real form design screamed FOODER. Hell, he only managed to injure Luffy once.
He injured gear 4th luffy even doflamingo can't draw blood from gear 4th luffy with his attacks. That means cracker haki is slightly stronger than doflamingo haki.
>the heights gotta be crazy
It'd be enough imo to have a decent amount of character developement.
Get rid of his gimmick-limits, reduce his weaknesses, improve his abilities and a powerup is all I need.
Doffy had CoC mastery, so unlikely. Besides, he isn't even really a fighter while Crackers job is to fuck shit up when someone doesn't deliver candy. Another commander got finished by a supernova. Kid was raiding her ships. BM just isn't that big of a deal.
The biggest factor in the injury seemed to be the surprise, besides it didn't even really affect Luffy.
Not necessary in the last scene but when they met before, Pedro had the upper hand.
I still can't believe this Pudding is evil meme turned out to be true. What's next? Brook will take down Big Mom alone? Jinbe will really die?
>It's not even hax, it's basically Sugars fruit that takes more effort/time to use and only affects one person. Also we still don't know how good she's at using the gun. Reji probably didn't expect getting ganged on and shot by people who wanted to marry her brother.
how much you wanna bet she isn't even big mom's daughter?
Pudding can rewrite everything, even make people want to do things, I be Lola was the favorite child and pudding fucked it up.
Did something changed recently, or is pic related /a/ thing?
Perona could trash entire crew except of Usopp.
Enel could trash entire crew except of Luffy.
There's always a situation when someone is perfect opponent to somebody without being a bigger fish.
