So how OP is the meme meme fruit?
Reminder it is the older sister that will approve of who her little brother hangs around with
Reminder Reiju noticed Sanji has become a great person while being with the Strawhats maybe even a man she admires
Reminder Nami will learn a lot from Sanji from Reiju because big sisters pass on information of their siblings to potential love interests
Reminder Nami only pushes Sanji away because she doesn't realize he is from a completely broken and fucked up past just like her and that will get her wet
Reminder Nami will find new feelings for Sanji after this arc but the dynamic won't change between them other than maybe Nami blushing while acting tsundere
>year of brook
Reminder that Monet is Cute.
Well it is the meme meme fruit, so let's make it an exploitable.
For an arc entirely about Sanji, I'm surprised we haven't heard anything about Gin yet. It would've been interesting to see how much stronger he got over the years.
I maintain that he's probably a legit stronger fighter than Don Krieg, and had a level of compassion Krieg didn't. If anyone would have broken off from the Krieg pirates it'd have been him.
>P-Pudding is only putting on an act!
Depends on what the limits are to its ability. It can erase, transplant, or overwrite memories. Is the effect permanent? Does it exist for as long as the DF user is conscious like Sugar's hobby hobby fruit?
It can be as hax as Oda wants it to be. Could Pudding have transplanted all of a soldier's memories into Reiju and made her a henchman?
Wasn't Pound surprised by Big Mom's indifference to him?
Or was a hated daughter, but found the Mem Mem fruit and swapped positions with a loved daughter (Lola being an obvious suspect).
Give one good reason why you DON'T love him
Anybody can tell me how accurate this translation is?
I think it's a set up for the return of a Mr. Prince.
Still can't believe Brook called Big Mom "young Lady". The fucking nuts on this skeleton. How is it even possible for Sanji to get BTFO in terms of character in his own arc?
Germa is seeking alliance with Big Mom, who Caesar is in trouble with as she is forcing him to do work he isn't able to complete, so by the end of the arc she'll probably want to kill him
Seems to have a similar insta-K.O. like Moriah's shadow snipping, but I doubt it has all the crazy extra shit on top that Moriah got.
So, great for a single encounter, but she's fucked if there's more than one person there.
>Zoro most likely killed people when he was a bounty hunter
>He can learn to care about his nakama
>That's just a personality trait and doesn't necessarily make him a bad person
Caesar will hone his skills and surpass him
he abuses his mens loyalty for his amusement
OKay Sanji doesn't fucking deserve this.
First he gets tortured on tranny island, then he jobs for 200 chapters, and now he gets fucked by pudding and his own family?
Jesus Christ Oda, why? None of the other characters have had to deal with almost constant failure and pain like this. Robin's past is fucked sure, but at least she felt the love of a family before they all died, Brook had it bad to but once again Brook had it great before shit went South.
Here's a timeline of Sanji's miserable existence:
Horrible pain and rejection delivered by his own family
Homeless and watches his new father eat his own leg
Gets to have fun cooking for a while
Gets to have fun with strawhats for a while
Hey it's looking pretty good
Oh wait I'm a jobber
Oh fuck now I'm literally just comedic relief and my nose won't stop bleeding
Jobbing to Vergo
Jobbing to Doffy
Oh my family is back, and they're worse now somehow
Now I'm a prisoner and there's no way out, at least I have this cute wif-
Suddenly I'm interested in her specific standards for the potential husband.
It would be hilarious if she will fall head over heels for Sanji by the end of this arc despite being the only attractive woman whom he will flat out reject no matter the circumstances.
Will the suffering this arc actually break Sanji and change his character? There's no way Sanji comes out of this arc as the same character he was coming in.
If his attitude towards women doesn't become more subdued and cautious Oda will cement his hack status.
>OKay Sanji doesn't fucking deserve this.
1. Going to prove to his family that he's the only good to ever come out of his bloodline
2. Finally be free from his past
3. Get a more than decent amount of character development
4. Continue to be one of the best things that happened to the strawhats
5. Do the thing that Sanji does by staying out of the fighting until the right time to move appears, like he did in Alabasta
safest bet of a change would be >>151591040 where he finally rejects a pretty girl because her soul is 'ugly' or something along those lines, showing he's still a pervert but he takes the woman's character into account or something.
he's obviously never going to hit Pudding because it'd break his personal code
if Pudding's in any way redeemable by the end he'll forgive her because of his infamous 'a man forgives a woman's lies' line, but only in that circumstance.
also possible is Nami ends up saving him and he changes from lusting after all women to literally Nami is his one true waifu now and he just redoubles his efforts on her alone.
I want his attitude to be subdued and changed, but I don't think it should go away forever.
Of course, I know that if he makes heart eyes just one time Post-WCI, trolls/speedreaders will jump on it even if he gets toned down overall.
No matter what happens this arc will be good for giving us
second-bestgirl. Robin a besto.
Post yfw Luffy tells Big Mom to her face that he will be pirate king before escaping with everyone and maybe the poneglyph shit.
Anon, everyone here knows how this is going to play out.
By the time this arc is over his father will be bawling his eyes out apologizing to Sanji, his brothers will give him bro hugs, Pudding will promise her eternal love to him and Reiji will let her play with her tits and jerk off in her panties.
It's as plain as day.
So her whole plan hinges on the guy who regularly dodges crazy anime ORA ORA barrages with his magic spidey sense is going to get shot with a gun...like really Oda? I know he hyped it up that this gun can hurt Reijuu but a revolver seems like a step down from the things Sanji has tanked so far in the series.
>implying it hasn't been hinted that she already has observation haki
Nami is very observant. Also she's able to predict weather in the grand line. Even through it's said to be unpredictable
It wouldn't really factor into her fighting style even if she had it. She's always been able to predict her opponents to some degree. So it's not like using Haki to predict her opponents would be a shift even if it may be a step up, and she'll never be strong enough to compete with others in the area of raw strength. Her biggest attacks all rely upon weather effects that are way too complicated and distant to add haki to. Besides her big attacks are some of the strongest in the crew they just take a long time to set up.
A point blank shot to the head at an unsuspecting Sanji should theoretically be enough to kill him pretty easily, especially with how powerful the bullets are.
How else would she kill him anyways? Not like there are many other weapons she could use.
>cute dumb rabbit girl
>implying there is literally anything more to her character than that
ugly nose too
fucking bitch I'm so mad she didn't get eaten that would've hot as fuck
Luffy, Zoro, and Franky were depressed with Sanji in the same way, effected by the negative hollow
whoever made this 'infographic' cut Chopper, Usopp, and Luffy out of this panel
>terrified, apologizing, damn you brook
They were the ghost ship exploring trio with Luffy. Characters reacting in unison-- opposite of Luffy, never seen that happen in One Piece before.
SaNa confirmed dude, good job.
I understand your confusion, but just because you detect danger doesn't mean you'll be able to dodge it. It's safe to assume that Pudding herself is much stronger/quicker than she lets on, so being able to pop a shot on sanji isn't out of the question (before he knew about it).
This arc is perfect for him to appear again though. He'd be saving Sanji in a moment where he's the most miserable, just like Sanji did for him long ago.
I believe there's a huge probability >>151589309 will happen. Oda never forgets.
>Been behind since college so I finally marathon the last 50 chapters of Big Momma's House
>All this despair
Sure Doflomingo had is "and I must scream" universe of his but you knew the Strawhats were gonna' make mincemeat of the baddies because they were still strong as fuck, now they're meeting their match and our boy is suffering the way he is, it just feels so fucking bleak I was unprepared
This issue is to come out in stores about one week from now. You could say this was a bad year for Sanji, but it still isn't over yet. There's no sign of letting up yet for his suffering. As long as Baratie is held hostage, his hands are tied.
having multi racial children is something she wants, why should she stop at just one mermaid child?
Jimbe is a pretty tough guy so his offspring would be too, but I doubt the arc antagonist is pregnant
with one of the strawhats children
Fishwomen can birth mermaids/men and Mermaids can birth Fishmen/women
Will Sanji ever NOT get fucked in the ass? Every time I think he will have something good for him, Oda screws him over harder.
I thought it was the shaming of his honor to the masses, at least it was advertised in the newspapers in Totland that he was basically a coward.
I'm probably wrong and maybe he back-tracked, but for someone known as the "Sea Knight" I assume his honor would be paramount to his character.
Either way, I love Jinbe and can't wait to see him help Luffy and Company tear Big Mom's shit up.
>Think that sanji and pudding are cute together and hope they have a happy marriage
>Compare them to me and my fiance since we both like cooking
>"Yeah you're definately sanji honey!"
>She ends up leaving me late november and was only in it for personal game.
>Bitterly look at sanji and pudding with those memories
I'm sorry I caused this sanji..
You know what? I agree with you. I don't even like Sanji but I genuinely felt bad for the lad this chapter. This was supposed to be the year of Sanji and all he has gotten so far is:
>jobbed against Capone
>engaged to some mutant girl
>horrible past revealed
>jobbed against his faggot dad
>threatened to get Zeff killed
>threatened to lose hands
>jobbing against niiji
>had to play villain, beat the shit out of luffy and leave the crew
>got slapped by nami
>fell in love with cyclops thot
>got betrayed, mocked, and heartbroken
That is fucking bullshit. Sanji used to be my favorite character when I started One Piece but Oda has been slowly ruinning him, shitting on him, and making less relevant. For fucks sake he was sent to OKAMA FUCKING ISLAND before the time skip!! Get the fuck out of here with that, what the fuck did he learn? Okama kenpo? I can't keep on laughing at a character that was once so great and now is nothing but a jobber nose-bleeding fag. What the fuck is Oda doing? Does he want all Sanjifags to hate him or kill themselves? Fuck you Oda, this was Sanji's year and you fucked up.
I really hope things go better for Sanji next year, he didn't fucking deserve all the shit he got in this arc.
Knock out weak willed people. I guess he isn't physically harming them. Shit, you're completely in the right. I'm sorry.
I know the word has lost all its meaning but seriously? All three fucking times Sanji had stuff holding him bck. All three fucking times he didn't lose to make the enemy look strong. All three fucking times it was made very fucking apparent by Oda that Sanji could beat the shit out of his opponent if it wasn't for bullshit hostages or other people.
I hope you fucking get a cold or some shit.
Looks like you have a crippling case of
I'm the type of guy to wish people a happy birthday on /b/ and hunt Google for shitty puns to make people laugh.
>over a cold
Pudding did nothing wrong.
>helped Luffy and Chopper out of trouble even though she was in no obligation to
>led them to the Seducing Woods like the loyal daughter she is
>wants to kill all Vinsmokes because who doesn't?
>injures and mindfucks Reiju because Vinsmokes made their bed and have to lie in it
>rightfully mocks Sanji for being a lovestruck faggot
Pudding is our girl.
So not only an award for best acting. Also for best editing?
Does she do her own makeup and costumes aswell?
Jinbei obviously lost his most precious possession: his integrity.
>Jinbei opens his robe revealing his shaved naked body
>Jinbei shows off his new gay tattoo
>he talks about how he's a performance artist male only
>talks about deep dark fantasies
>fisting is 300 bucks
>Vegapunk is Franky's biological father
>He went back to an archived thread to find something to be butthurt about.
Hey now, no need to talk shit about best skelly.
If One Piece was more realistic being a musician and keeping the morale of the crew high would be way more important than drawing, in this setting as Brook's music has some hypnosis effects it is again more useful than drawing.
Not at all. Bards were a big part of pirate crews. Luffy always wanted one, and for the SHs the melodies of Brook "boost" the crew.
What is drawing going to do at all? It has nothing to do with being a role on the crew and serves no purpose. About as useful as Brook's ability to lean 45 degrees.
>I can't believe Kubo pulled a Kishi on us... Why, WHY did he tease IchiRuki so much (one of the many examples being this HONEYMOON spread)
This is suspicious as fuck though. Jinbei was facing the roulette wheel the last time we saw him, he was proper fucked and here he is absolutely fine. There is no way he is going to step foot on Sunny and I hate Oda for it.
Why are you assuming the worst? He will join once BM goes down.
>Pudding gets beat in to fucking submission
>As a last resort she tries to alter Sanji's memories to make him loyal to her
>Sees how shit his life has been
>Edits his memories so he doesnt remember his childhood of garbage
Wait, literally WHY do people think Monet is going to be a straw hat, wait scratch that why do people even think she's still fucking alive?
I'm not trying to start shit I'm legitimately curious, is there like some conspiracy theory going on?
Sabo is truly one of the very few One Piece characters that I dislike. The way he was introduced, his role in the story now. It just reads like a complete asspull.
It wouldn't be so bad if Oda had shown Sabo before Ace's death. Instead, Sabo just feels like a replacement Ace. He even got the fruit now.
No that's not even what I mean, literally everything about them is exactly the same except for the fact that Sabo isn't a pirate nor does he eat a bunch and sleep randomly. There's almost no difference between the two characters.
These are the only complaints I see about Sabo and they're dumb. Aces tattoo was a give away. Their characters and motivations are completely different. In fact the only similar thing between them would be the mera mera. This actually introduces an interesting concept as well - a fighter getting a devil fruit AFTER developing a great fighting style.
If you guys can keep saying is muh ace 2.0 then I can't wait for you to eat your socks when Sabo solos Akainu.
Go in the archives and find out. The arguments have been made again and again, everyone who was going to read them knows them already. Monet is alive, and she's going to be a Strawhat.
Can't wait until Sabo dies and it turns out Luffy had another brother called Babo.
>If you guys can keep saying is muh ace 2.0 then I can't wait for you to eat your socks when Sabo solos Akainu.
I don't give a shit how "strong" the character is. He's a badly written character that came out of nowhere 700 chapters into the story. This is my main complaint against him.
Sabo's existence is basically just Oda going "I know readers still miss Ace, so here, have another character that's literally the same"
Can't believe it actually worked and Sabo became one of the most popular characters somehow
It's a wedding crash man.
You're supposed to crash through the candy glass windows when the priest says "IS THERE ANY SOUL IN THIS ROOM THAT OBJECTS TO THE MARRIAGE OF THESE TOO YOUNG PEOPLE"
I guess I don't understand intentionally diluting a character down in your mind then complaining about your diluted perspective as if the onus is on Oda.
Sabo has plenty of defining qualities.
>very smart but would rather explore
>fallen noble in a sense
>wants to write a book about the world and his travels
Sabo was an earnest young boy that hated the stench of nobility. Now he lives to level the playing field for everyone. Sabo had shitty parents but still wanted to make something for himself. All Ace ever did was complain about his dad and then kill himself. Sabo is incomparably better than Ace.
hmm, I fucking wonder
Oh yes, we should have totally known that Luffy has another brother, because Ace had a tattoo of a crossed S.
So, there are probably 3 other brothers as well, right? Who are A, C and E then?
Sanji must be the same as Ace too then. He's like a brother to Luffy. Uses fire. Woah.
Do you know how many time Heaven's Door have been already mentioned? Three.. No, it's four times already
Ace's tattoo, apparently:
>A "S that's been crossed out" C E
Pretty far-fetched though, it just gives the reader the impression that Ace was too stupid to remember to spell his own name. Which is plausible because he is(was) Luffy's brother.
I thought they were half-brothers or something, but turns out they're not related at all
Also in one of the chapters after the war showing Luffy and Ace's past in one panel you can just make out that there is a third sake cup of brotherhood or whatever.
What the fuck are you guys on about? Even if Ace was too retarded to spell a 3 lettered word, it wouldn't be him tattooing. It'd be the tattoo artist. And the tattoo artist wouldn't just go "A S-ah fuck, scratch that- C E". No, don't be stupid. The S was a tribute. Have to be. Otherwise we're gonna have to accept that there is some brain dead retard tattoo artist. Ace isn't even that dumb. He's got a sleeping disorder, yes, but Ace was never portrayed as stupid, iirc.
Don't make me fucking laugh. I asked how the character was teased and I get presented this weak shit. I expected some panel like with Dragon in Rogue Town, instead I get shown a fucking typo on some dudes arm as a justification for a shit tier character.
I had nothing to do with that. I onkh made a joke about Monet, Pudding and Gin Rummy having the same eyes, thus must be the same person. But seriously, Ace wouldn't be tattooing himself. That's just silly.
It's a dart board. Why would anyone use niggerstream translations as cannon.
Jinbe hit bullseye and saved himself. Foreshadowed on fishmanisland that he has incredible throwing accuracy.
Learn Nippon. I think sakazuki stands for 3 sake cups. Sabo read the headline "sakazuki kills ace" and which caused the memory to return. Amnesia is an awful plot device though. I hate that.
Stop being autistic, that's just a guy with a sweet hat.
Dunno why you don't believe Ace's tattoo wasn't foreshadowing of Sabo, it was just subtler than "HEY LUFFY YOU REMIND ME OF OUR BROTHER FROM ANOTHER MOTHER YO"
Annoying meme villain only autists like.
>Oda forgetting how to spell the word Ace
Why do you think this is more credible than Oda foreshadowing?
This is objectively the correct answer. Flags are the exact same, it's essentially canon the S is a tribute to Sabo. You'd have to be willfully ignorant to even argue it.
There's also the fact that we can see the shadow of a third sake cup when Luffy and Ace did the whole brothership thing, which is obviously Sabo's cup.
Even more proof that the S is a tribute to Sabo is in pic related. Since in this "timeline" Sabo never actually died in the first place, there is no tribute "S" in Ace's tattoo.
Nah, that's the thing see, when you read it without knowing about Sabo, you think it's just a funny tattoo, done because Ace / the tattoo artist was dumb, and it shows Ace's not a serious guy either. Then when you get to Luffy's flashback with Sabo, you get reminded of the tattoo (although quite frankly I forgot if there's a panel about the tattoo in the flashback, but that also applies when you reread Alabasta), and you realise Oda's been planning it.
It's nice because it's open, see, because if at any point in the 400 chapters separating thoses two points, Oda would've changed his mind, either changing Sabo to another guy/girl with a "S" name or taking the character out of the story entirely, then he could've done it and no one would mind.
Maybe it's a bit strong to call the tattoo foreshadowing. Foreshadwing would be (to take the first example that comes to mind) how the shark lady in the Fishman Island had a vision of Luffy destroying the island. It's more like a stepping stone that Oda can use if he likes, I'm sure that if you search a bit you can find a few others like that in fiction.
Dude, Sabo was invented during that sake cup scene. I bet you're one of the retards that believes that Oda had the concept for haki planned out since Chapter 1.
Oda is REALLY good at retroactive foreshadowing. He can make things fit into story because he designs new things based off of the loose and undesigned details he leaves in his writing.
I'm starting to think that Sanji will get out of this mess partly on his own.
Attack Cuisine has barely been used in the story so far. I wouldn't be surprised if that changes in the next year.
These two pages justify Brook's existence to me.
I always complained about his lack of screen time but this shit right here won me over. The amount of character he showed here is nuts.
You sound like a theist. I'm just rejecting your claim of intelligent design. Your proof isn't strong enough to make the claim that Sabo was planned out since Ace's introduction.
Look at this and tell me why your eyes aren't heart shaped.
Are you gay?
So.. Why did she tell reiju any of this in the first place? Why was she shot at, what did she walk in on that required them to capture her and remove her memory? Surely they didn't just sneak up on and shoot reiju, then tell her the whole plan, then remove her memory just for shits and giggles.
Pudding is only evil because her memory is altered for whatever reason we don't know yet.
Once she is knocked out senseless, the effects would be unraveled and she'll become good again. You'll see.
You've got a long way to go but one day you'll reach the absurdity of Monetfag. Keep at it, son.
Oda originally intended for Nami to be the heavy hitting cyborg character, but changed his mind.
The chances for the Vinsmokes to join the strawhat fleet at the end of this arc are rising.
I could've sworn it was himself that made the tattoo.
Turns out I was wrong.
Also turns out that the fourth databook does actually confirm that it's a tribute to Sabo. So my bad.
are you claiming the 'S' was just Oda being "lol so whacky randum XD"?
>we will never have a WCI where Franky learns about how shitty Ichi and Niji were as big brothers and beats the shit out of them
His own family threw him out, sure, but I can't imagine he'd be very happy seeing how the Vinsmokes treat each other/their subordinates.
Yes, but my question is what rationale he thinks Oda had for deciding to put an 'S' on a tattoo spelling ACE. You don't do shit like that just because you're feeling random. Maybe Sabo was something else back then.
Which doesn't prove much, because we don't see his face unlike Dragons. Dragon gets an entire panel for himself, while this Sabo is just random dude in the background.
But I would like to ask you guys something regarding Sabo. Wouldn't it have been better if
a) Sabo/Luffy/Ace flashback happened before Ace's death. Like say at Impel Down. Ace sits in the cell and thinks about what a shitty brother he has been, forcing luffy to lose another brother -> cue flashback
b) Sabo actually being dead instead of lol amnesia. It would be history repeating himself for Luffy, like pottery.
did sanji even hear the part about memory DF?
he basically ditched his sister to an uncertain fate.
>Fucking Zoro somehow ends up saving Jinbe and get Pedro's life back because of how lucky he is.
>Big Mom just stands there, stumped
>Post yfw Nami's final attack in the story is Thunder Tempo: Storm Axe, as a way of paying tribute to the Gum Gum Battle Axe that KOed Arlong.
Something's definitely off about Jinbei. He's either
-Going to betray them (due to being mindcontrolled or something, definitely unintentionally)
-Gave up a certain amount of his life like Pedro
-Going to die pretty soon as a result of the last one
Why did Sanji leave the flowers? He even placed them up against the wall.
Why is Luffy growing less and less appealing?
He used to be the personification of youth and passion but now he just comes off as mentally handicapped and awkward.
rock bottom is being on a rock and eating the leg of someone you were talking shit about to survive
This is par for the course
The only way his life could have been worse if luffy and zef both got killed waiting for him after he pulled that stunt. I think that would have been worse than the rock .
At least it's all uphill from here. We as readers know he wont die nor will the vinsmokes.
Will Big Mom really be defeated in this arc though? The Strawhats don't have that many allies on WCI and it wouldn't feel right if the first yonko was defeated in 50 chapters and with only half of the crew
I unironically ship Sanji and Nami but I am not a tumblr tier shipper, meaning I wouldn't give 2 shits if they don't end up together. I just like the idea of those 2 ending up together
>Jinbei will soon replace Sanji in the monster trio
Is it possible to be more cucked?
Why are these shonen jump issues one month ahead? Is it common knowledge that Japan is like a month ahead or something?
It can't be that it gets leaked that much ahead of time each week since VIZ is only a week behind the fan translations, right?
Sounds good. I never liked that whiteknight cuck anyways.
