New chapter is out.
Let's figure out what oda is planning with this freshly introduced character.
Best pairing! Incredible chemistry in the manga and great doujins!
>Trying to read chapter
>Uncomfortable boner for Carrot
My fucking sides
It's like that Share the Urouge vid but with Caesar instead
so, Bege has a big, evil plan to take down BM. he also seems to be very unlikeable and shady.
does that mean that he wants the straw hats to do all the hard work and then kill them too?
as we all know, every single plan in the history of OP was blown up by luffy.
what does that mean for the story? will BM suddenly become an ally? or the germa? or noone and only the straw hats win?
to me, it all doesn't matter as long as the bunny stays
just look at his females.
The following look the same.
Nami, rebecca, koala, pudding
Robin, hancock, viola, baby 5
There are even 3 characters walking around who look the same as caesar.
mirroring parts of the plot with a different take on it is a narrative technique not a sign of unoriginality, you dumbass.
The first Yonnko to fall was known as a father to his crew, who loved him as such, and went to war to save one of his sons, but was betrayed by one who was deceived and forgave him, and in the end they fought together.
The second Yonko to fall is literally the mom of her crew but many hate her and she's using her children as means to an end, and she will be betrayed by her own child, and she will rage at it and she will fight against her own children and against her enemies.
>plot twist: literally everyone is planning to assassinate big mom during the wedding
>it turns out like the strawhats vs oars battle
10/10 chapter. But I'm really starting to miss Robin and Zoro.
I'm praying that after this arc we don't get the typical flash forward to Zoro having beaten his enemy then show us a flashback of what happened.
>Luffy grows his tooth back with milk
Uh, has he done this before? It just seems like an asspull to me.
If Brook can heal his bones with milk, by in-universe logic it makes sense that anyone with a skeleton can heal their bones with milk as well.
It also means that BB hasn't drank milk in ages.
I was expecting some basic symbolism with the missing tooth representing the rift between Luffy and Sanji. Was 100% convinced that after Luffy ate something Sanji cooked he'd have gotten the tooth back. I guess this way is more... realistic?
>Want to have adventures on the high sea
>End up embroiled in cloak&dagger espionage and betrayal where a daughter wants to assassinate her own mother
Is Carrot still having fun?
Milk is fucking OP.
>break an arm
>glass of fresh milk
>good as new
>get your teeth painfully pulled out one by one
>glass of fresh milk
>new set of teeth ready for more excruciating torture
>get attacked by some DF using maniac
>bones crushed in entire body, might never walk again
>glass of fresh milk
>as if nothing happened
I love the symmetry of this shot, Luffy is flanked by four crewmates, two temporary allies and two future crewmates. All perfectly mirrored on either side.
Oda is a great artist.
>End up embroiled in cloak&dagger espionage and betrayal where a daughter wants to assassinate her own mother
She voted for it, she was the other besides Jinbe in the 4-2 split
>implying they're the same person
>two future crewmates
jinbe is already a crewmate.He literally already joined. Carrot is a possible future crewmate but we can't say for sure and in any case she's sitting beside jinbe not in front of him
Sogeking's probably been busting his ass training between the timeskip. He was already stronger than Usopp before. Also seemed like the type to have CoC haki with his strong leadership potential and heroism.
So his side, most likely.
>and two future crewmates
Almost got me.
Memes aside it's a great spread though, one of my favorites in a long time. I loved it when the crew dressed formally in Strong World, so it's nice to see the main series also pull it off
>Nami, rebecca, koala, pudding
that's the only reason I can see Bege wanting to be with Chiffon
yes yes you're so funny and creative
haha they're pretending that gastino is a new character, such wit! Surely the previous hundred posts repeating the same joke have not ran it into the ground and turned it into annoying shitposting.
Nope, it's so fresh and clever still.
Go hang yourself with your own entrails shitheads.
>Nami sit especially far away from Sanji, because they still dosn't get proper reunion
>Simultaneous comment about Caesar and their poses confirmed this pretty clear.
>Muh Luffy and Nami close to each other!!1 It's a love!11
LuNa never change.
HAHAHA STILL NO "SANAMOMENT" EAT SHIT YOU SHITPOSTERS
>Only one kneepad on Nami
Oda still copying DB I see.
I just realized that the numbers represents the Strawhats' birthdays
ALRIGHT, anyone else super curious in what order everyone sat down and chose their seats?
gastino, pedro, jinbei, and chopper were probably already sitting down. then luffy came in with brook and sanji in tow, luffy of course sitting at the head, sanji choosing the solitary seat by pedro, and chopper the seat next to luffy and the snacks. then finally nami and carrot, who i assume take the longest to bathe came in last, nami choosing the seat next to her captain, and carrot squeezing in between jinbei and brook in order to reach the snacks
>tfw this isn't even mentioned in the whole thread yet
Chopper without the hat is fucking adorable.
I wonder how Stelly's and Sabo's Reunion at the Reviere is going to be like.
wtf, he's here too? i started a conversation with him on /int/, with me ending up recalling why i stopped reading the manga
i though you'd reply so, shonen fag
This is by far one of the most stupidiest things I ever saw in 4chan and I can't stop laughing.
Where the fuck IS zorro? I can't even remember at this point. What is he up to?
And the guy with the gun on his arm is looking at Gastino's dick
It just gets worse the longer you look at it
>ask for carrot
>someone posts the mashup i made
im impressed and disappointed
Why doesn't Caesar just convert the O2 in people's blood to O3 and instantly kill them?
>good Carrot doujins
Hell, I'd settle for any pics/doujins of Carrot, we're lucky we even get as much as we do.
>yaoi is bad
Not him, but seriously?
Caesar can already do shit like suffocate people on a whim.
The problem is everyone holding him hostage has his fucking heart and can crush it faster than he can knock them out.
Why didn't Chopper just give Hiluluk a bottle of milk?
Carbon monoxide is literally everywhere and would poison a person before they even knew what he was doing to them. Hell he could just displace all of the nitrogen in the air and poison them with oxygen too.
Cesar how the fuck do you spell his name?
Can do the following:
flammable gas Oxygen Hydrogen
explosive gas something with Nitrogen in it
Poison Gas could literally be fucking anything probably sulfur dioxide or something
So Cesar Caesar Ceasar? can manipulate gaseous elements.
Has anyone tried to decipher the text under Gastino's name? I feel like it may provide a clue to his past.
Anyone find the world of One Piece to be very boring. I mean its the boring blue oceans then some shitty countries in the Grand Line, hell on earth in the New World, and that eyesore called the Red Line.
I mean sure it has alot of countries buts its so boring, idk guys maybe I just like continents or something.
It's a story about sailing from point to point. The world is designed in a way that best compliments it.
Luffy and co., like most pirates, would have no reason to venture further than a harbor in a possible continent, and a full-blown, year-long saga of traveling on land would likely piss more people off than it would please. There's no reason for it.
Though I guess I sort of understand your map autism.
>Other characters like fucking Bellamy learned haki during the timeskip
>Enel, who already has the strongest Color of Observation in the entire series, couldn't have possibly discovered Armament during the two years.
If he played it smart literally no one would be able to touch him. All he'd have to do is coat some of his lighting in haki and strike people from miles away. Not to mention he's the fastest character in the series with the second best CoO.
He went to the fucking moon where nobody could hurt him hes not going to learn like that plus you have his whole god complex he thinks hes better then everyone and the sniper guy Van whatever Arguably has better observation haki
That's all low tier haki. Save for hair jumping, which is just fiction physics.
You know how a helicopter can lift it self off the group by just spinning the blades.
Well the air jumping is them doing that. Just them pumping their legs up and down faster than the eye can see. Or that's how it was explained, at least.
I've broken 5 inches of sold wood with my fingers before. But the trick to the is keeping your fingers bent.
What they're doing is hardening their fingers with haki, so it really wouldn't effect the joints or bones.
Haki doesnt create shockwaves nor an invisible aura gun.
For that to work they would to somehow to push air into a point while that air has enough pressure to create an explosion that pushs them up then do that constantly meaning they could never ever stop moving their legs and their fluid flight would be impossible. Bluewalk is just fucking bullshit.
was gonna post that but ya beat me to it. Gotta say I'm glad Oda took this piss yet again on, dunno what we were all expecting
That fight was bullshit since Doflamingo could have ensnared Luffy in strings then rip him to pieces but instead shot strings in one direction like a fucking retard. Also he has that parasite hax of his to make Luffy walk into the ocean.
A finger have lower surface than a hand, it is easier to stab with a lower surface, try cutting yourself with a slab of iron, it won't work, because the surface is too big, now do it with a knife, you caan do it now, because the blade have a smaller surface
>Not to mention he's the fastest character in the series
Lasers dont explode they cause explosions by rapidly heating matter though so Kizaru could make your face burst into vapor if he felt like it. If Kizaru used real light it would be impossible to parry any of his attacks because they would vaporize your fucking hands and HIT YOU BEFORE YOUR BRAIN WOULD EVEN REGISTER THE PAIN.
now that the dust has settled, whats the general consensus on our new crewmate?
>carrot will never smotherfuck you and finger your asshole
but maybe, just maybe anon, if we live long enough we'll see some decent doujins
But what about there families that remembered them? There is a million things doffy could've done but he didn't because he was a king and was over confident so the heavenly demon pretending to be a god fell back to earth.
Sugar's powers are way more hax because she can turn you into a useless piece of whatever for the rest of your goddamn life.
Also the people she turned into toys can't use their df powers at all so even a broken motherfucker like Kizaru would be finished.
I fucking love Caesar one of the most entertaining villains in the series
>Awakened pudding powers = Aizen?
>Bleach is the only manga with good illusion/mindfucking swordsmen
god damn it why did bleach have to give me such a hard on for this type of character if theres almost none out there.
Oda likes to make random DFs OP over obvious ones like Caesers, Enel, Kizaru etc. instead we get cracker, string and soon tomato clones. Pudding might be the last memory altering DF we see :(
It wasn't, Fujitora or Sabo would have stopped him if things got too rough. And he would have lost his status as a Shichibukai and wouldn't be able to keep up his deal with Kaidou.
I fucking hope so man. I don't get the hate for him. He finally adds another DF to the crew, and one of the most powerful that would counter other high tier DFs in almost every other crew.
I'm sure if you just randomly deleted 50% of a person's life experience it'd cause them to break down and become nonfunctional. She wouldn't even have to be precise about it.
You would suddenly have no rational way to link A to B in your entire life history, you'd go tarded.
Actually anon brain has proven a human can literally forget how to walk even if you show them thousands if times, their brain just doesnt make it an instinctive memory. So Pudding could win any fight by making you forget how to fight.
since chopper and carrot would be a pair, she would constantly be given credit for his feats, making her bounty soar while the WG thinks chopper is still a pet. im guessing 30 mil
I feel like the Strawhats having a logia wouldn't fit. So far most of the logia have been villains except Ace right?
At this point I expect Caesar to stay with Bege, Carrot to join, and Jinbe to die. But I have an abysmal track record with predicting what Oda will do so you can safely say the opposite of that will happen.
for now this is all i can do for you
the only way i see Caesar ""joining""" is because Chopper and such dont want him running around and making nuclear drugs that turn fish into bombs or something.
Still want Carrot to join. let her see the world and shit
That depends on how exactly Pudding's powers work.
As we saw with Reiju it actually took her some time to delete and edit a single memory and Reiju didn't have the chance to fight back.
Sugar can make the strongest motherfucker utterly useless by a single touch. We don't know if Pudding can do the same.
Shit got cool at the exact moment Brook started shining, and it got even cooler once Bege became big in the last few chapters.
So much for the year of Sanji, he's severely upstaged in this arc.
For example, how often have we even talked about or referenced the Vinsmokes in the last several threads? Not very often.
3 hours 30 minutes remaining...UNTIL THE FULL MOON
So do you think Oda actually read a whole encyclopedia about the human brain before he decided to introduce the memo memo no mi?
I always have to chuckle when people here try to explain supernatural powers in a children's manga with scientific arguments.
The roulette has been hyped up twice now.
I believe it will be used again in this arc.
Most likely, it will involve Luffy and his lifespan.
Anyone here have decent predictions/scenarios in relation to the roulette?
Arab Brook was good, sure, but this new Brook is so fucking fresh.
So Sanji is pretty much confirmed to have released his genetic potential, only with a big timelapse? I mean Diable Jambe, what the hell it even is, it's clearly not a DF or haki, don't bullshit me around Oda.
>Capone has an actual and has been building up through all the arc
>Sanji and Luffy reconciliated so Oda got rid of the drama
>Luffy-Capone aliance is one of the most strange and disfuncional things in the entire series
Add a timer to build up the tension and voila you have the perfect recipe for the biggest shitfest of the year everybody is invited now just take a seat and enjoy the ride
oh shit Happy SUPER B day Franky!
also I love how Robin is just chillin in the back with some tea
I wonder what the match ups are going to be for battles. It feels like most of BM's crew already had some time to shine, it feels like there won't be many battles in the climax, but that doesn't feel like it fits the scale of the arc.
The wedding is completely unpredictable to me, almost anything could happen and I feel like anything I can speculate about is baseless.
What the fuck are you talking about anon, he only asked a simple question.
I doubt Gastino has a DF, there's been too many introduced so far this arc - they wouldn't give some random background shitter another fruit power.
I thought about that, but it'd feel weird to have most fights be against characters we've barely seen, especially if the first half focused on so many others.
I'm feeling like the wedding will be set up for more of her crew and there won't be many battles, and in the future they'll participate in a big war-like arc.
I don't even know if Oda will kill anyone. It is set up to be a blood bath, but it will probably be toned down. I bet all of Germa lives, they are almost irrelevant if Big Mom is taken on before hand.
So we have
>Big Mom planning to kill Germa
>Luffy and Bege planning to kill Big Mom
>the bomb nobody knows about
>foreshadowing with the cook
>possible pudding shenanigans
It's gonna be fucking wild
>in the future they'll participate in a big war-like arc.
If Big mom or her crew survives they might team up with Kaidu and BB against Luffy and Shanks for an all out Yonko war after this
my dick is ready
I really want Ceasar Clown to join, he's just weak enough of a Logia to be doable.
>implying it won't end in Shanks fighting Luffy in an intense brawl and BB coming out of no where to attempt and kill Luffy, with Shanks making one last final gamble on the new generation and sacrificing himself for Luffy.
I don't think you realize
This arc will end with Big Mom defeated and everybody on a post-battle high at a party
Then we'll see a newspaper that says Shanks has been fucking murdered by Blackbeard while Luffy was busy with this
You really think he's ever giving that hat back except to a gravestone?
>I mean Diable Jambe, what the hell it even is
Sanji can set his entire body on fire by getting extremely angry and uses friction to heat up his leg. That's the best explanation you're getting.
Luffy can inexplicably use fire punches, Zoro can make wind tornados and grow arms, minks can electrocute their enemies naturally, we've once fought a guy who used afros as a weapon. Don't take the logistics behind powers too seriously, things run on cartoon physics.
The joke is Luffy grew a new tooth while Brook mended his bones.
One being a more accelerated reality of what calcium does and the other is literally fucking Luffy being Luffy.
He can store things in it though, so it's actually pretty good
Any Logia in the hands of a decently smart person who knows some Haki is pretty good
Average person would probably best served with a Zoan because at least that's a guaranteed increase in strength, but if you're not a complete retard even the Swamp Fruit is god tier
For a while I had money on Gin being with Mom, and then the Vinsmokes (before we knew how they worked), but if he hasn't shown himself yet he never will. The perfect moment for Gin to reconnect with Sanji, while he's alone and conflicted, has passed
Luffy and Law already discussed about the possibility of Luffy having to fight Shanks.
I doubt Shanks will be offed without Luffy being present and it happening to him right before his very eyes.
We'll see, and I hope you're right, but years from now if it happens remember that I called it - Shanks is gonna get off-paneled and we will never actually see him fight.
It will cause a shitstorm like few before or after
It's entirely too early to kill Shanks and it sure as hell isn't happening off-screen. The time for a major battle between the two crews will come after all the road poneglyphs are gathers, because once Blackbeard takes Shanks' head the finale will be set in motion.
And Big Mom's not going down yet. Oda's very heavily implying a lot of shit between her and Elbaf that still needs to be covered, and we haven't even met two of her commanders yet. There's going to be a scuffle with her but her role in the story won't be finished until Elbaf.
>didn't even have an 100 million bounty
>was a decent new world pirate some years ago
Did he become a Warlord way back when or did Oda actually reveal himself to be a fishman from the revolutionaries
I thought this as well and have been wondering what a certain yonko, that happens to be making an army of zoans, would think if he was to ever see a drug that allows a zoan to control it's awakening
>if Chopper went to Wano right now
Remember Crocodile paid off the government to suppress his bounty
He knew the Revolutionaries and tried to kill Whitebeard and knew about awakened Zoans
Croco was New World as fuck
the only thing that doesn't fit with croc and the current understanding of the nw is that he knew shit about haki
but i wouldn't put too much stock into bounties from 15 years ago, oda probably didn't think he'd be churning out $1bn fags down the line. luffy was 30m, having croc show up with something like 250m would have made it seem unrealistic when he finally beat him.
It was said in an SBS that, had they known Crocodile was the leader of Baroque Works he would actually have been in the 160 million range during Alabasta.
He might have been a similar situation to Hancock, being recruited into the warlords pretty quickly after he obtained a bounty.
Just read right to left and read a good scan at a comfortable resolution for your eyeballs
People are going to shit on you for literally never having read a manga before but One Piece is a good one to start with so just do it
He might have never caused major trouble for the government and maybe gave them a gift. Logically high bounties means the government has to consider you worth ignoring all the crimes you committed for the bounty.
I always viewed it as he lost his Haki because he literally lost his willpower, like Moria
It seems like the kind of thing you can lose if you feel like you're defeated psychologically
Croc never said he didn't know about Haki, he just never mentioned it because it was never relevant
Maybe they just didn't put him too high because they knew Admiral, maybe even Vice Admiral + bucket of water = Croc in cuffs. I mean Oda knew the bounties would get high, he said Eneru would've had some New World level bounty of 400 mil+ if he was actually on the Grand Line didn't he?
This is probably the case.
Either that or they were prime examples of Paradise pirates who blew through the first half of the Grand Line, got their asses kicked in the New World, and went back to their comfort zone in shame. They might not have spent enough time in the New World to learn it
He didn't need haki to fight Doflamingo as an equal, so he probably just made up for it by being good with his devil fruit.
So could that be crocodile's weakness that Ivankov mentioned?
I'd say Eneru is probably stronger than Ace given that there are probably less counters to lightning than fire.
Now that you've found the Golden Quads let us ascend to Fairy Vearth!
i'd say by the point in the story that enel showed up, one piece was much more fleshed out and grander in scale than whiskey peak when croc's bounty got settled. i have absolutely nothing to base this on than my own intuition but i'm pretty sure oda greatly expanded the scope and world of one piece during the bw saga and the shift can be seen at alabasata when they start getting into pluton and the poneglyphs. i mean oda did say he was planning a much simpler story at the beginning that he would finish in 5 years.
>So could that be crocodile's weakness that Ivankov mentioned?
No I think Ivankov's secret is more about his ties to the Revolutionaries. It's not that he was once a woman, or anything like that. It's probably something pretty serious.
Fire can start where lightning strikes so chances are they'd tie like when Ace fought Smoker.
The real question is if Ace could defeat that fancy new fellow Gastino or not. That'd be a match to see.
I've seen people creatively interpret this page as Crocodile being aware of Haki. Oda must have at least thought up something for Logias at this point unless Smoker was really unbeatable except in windy areas, and there's room for an argument that Crocodile wasn't thinking about the water weakness since he just laughed when Luffy revealed his trick.
I think Gastino has the Maze fruit and can turn anything into a Labyrinth
retrospectively, croc is really pathetic compared to doffy
think about it
base luffy beat the shit out of croc
post time skip gear 2 haki luffy's attacks literally didn't even phase doflamingo
pre timeskip gear 2/3 were enough to hurt lucci
croc is pathetic
Yeah, they showed the cook for the wedding giving out orders and gave him a name and a rank and everything. No bounty though.
Oda wouldn't have done that if that guy isn't going to do something
The only reason I'd think otherwise is because during their fight Blackbeard was teasing Ace about how it must have been years since he's felt a punch, which makes no sense given how armament works.
It's always felt to me like Oda hadn't really figured out how it worked until the timeskip, while Observation and Conquerors had a lot of teasing.
Unless it's been proven Doffy was able to infuse his strings with Haki it's plausable for Croc to have been weaker yet able to fight on par with him. It's shit like that that makes me love this series.
exchanging a blow with doffy's kick with his golden hook isn't fighting equally, doflamingo wasn't even trying
doflamingo was able to use parasite to completely stop jozu, luffy broke free from parasite
crocodile is pathetic man in terms of physical endurance, I'm sure you can at least agree on that, if you don't then you're a literal retard
also wb's pirates call shanks weird super coc just "haki" when in current story anyone looking at it would be way more specific. for example when luffy and chinjao or luffy and doffy clashed, the reaction was "a clash of conqueror's!!!!!" rather than "wow such haki"
vanilla "haki" as a term is probably used for coa, like judge with sanji. so it being used like that by experienced pirates like marco shows that oda didn't have it fully thought out
>crocodile is pathetic man in terms of physical endurance, I'm sure you can at least agree on that, if you don't then you're a literal retard
Easily true. Croco probably would've curbstomped Luffy if he didn't rely on his fruit like a goddamn crutch beyond belief.
Don't forget Garp
and Nami during slapstick
Croc is low on endurance and he obviously lost or never had haki but his mastery of a pretty basic logia makes me love him
Plus he's just cool as fuck, and dared to challenge whitebeard. His hidden backstory is one of the best mysteries of the manga.
I also think it's very possible he regained his Haki. If you can lose it you can probably get it back, it's just your "willpower" anyway. I hope Moria shows up again swole.
He definitely felt a need to introduce a physical devil fruit bypassing form of haki, yeah. It was all over Amazon Lily too.
But at that point it was being compared to an impact dial and was this invisible armor thing. It wasn't until after the war saga that Oda starting coloring it black and detailing how it actually worked.
You sure about years? The version I saw just had a while, which makes sense since Ace probably doesn't get much challenges as a member of Whitebeard's crew.
I also think there's something more to the whole logia-haki thing since the admirals got hit with a dozen attacks from characters who should have armament but take no damage. I just hope it isn't a haki is greater than yours sort of thing.
It was necessary, since otherwise they'd need some bystander to mention haki was being used whenever someone did a technique based on it.
I wouldn't be surprised if one of his editors told him to do that
I swear to God if Carrot won't join I'll flip my shit.
She's perfect for the crew and add tons of new interactions as well as having unique powers and being another female. Oda also keeps implying her dream being that she wants to see the whole world or something like that. Also she's cute af (I'm not even a furfag)
As Akainu demonstrated, elite logia users can still be unaffected by haki attacks. It just takes actual effort on their part.
Ace was one of WB's top commanders. He probably laughed whenever some scrub thought they could touch him just because they had learned CoA.
I don't think you have to be a furfag to want to pound that bunny cunny.
>when you're the only one who understands that nobody is joining this arc and the next nakama is Momonosuke as the cabin boy
