    Shit, I first read this chapter on my shitty tabet and completely missed that the CP0 Aegis dude was Rob Lucci. My fault for not reading it multiple times and on a better device.

    I don't know about Sanji being some noble or something, I get the feeling he knows something, or someone thinks he does that they need his cooperation for and unlike with Robin, it isn't something the majority of the government want buried. Either way, I hope we get a decent look at what went down while he and the others have been away. I think this arc happened in the span of a day and a half maybe but how long will Oda make it before the crew reunites again?

    Chopper looks like a goofy animal . One piece most folks haven't seen him fight nor would believe in a talking reindeer regardless of how wacky the world is

    We're talking about a universe where inanimate objects can eat Devil Fruits and become sentient living beings. I.E that dog gun or that elephant sword. But a talking Reindeer is too farfetched?

    First consider the source of the information as well as how he would likely recount it if his personality is exactly as we have seen.

    Next also consider, if he told anyone that is unfamiliar with Chopper the exact facts of the fight, the talking Reindeer that shape-shifted into multiple forms and ultimately beat his ass in the form of a sub giant monster human reindeer.

    Also, consider that outside of medical emergencies or fights, most of the time Chopper acts like a idiot on par with Luffy.

    Lastly, consider this is world where God Usopp and Buggy the Star/Genius Clown are considered legit threats. Chopper being that low makes perfect sense for One Piece.

    If it doesn't turn out that he's the son of a Noble. I can almost bet a celestial dragon just wants him as a slave.

    I hope the whole new plot is well thought out because Sanji has been really under utilized in the manga for a while now. Honestly, when you consider both his occasional badassery and frequent goofball humor moments he's one of the better contributing characters when it comes to the entertainment quality of the series.

    For example this just killed me:

    After the time skip Sanji became pretty dumb. I don't know why they made him so stupid when he was the baddest motherfucker on the crew.

    It's because Oda hasn't had an arc or moment to give any character development to any single Strawhat since the beginning of Part 2. Whether it's due to the fact that we had a lot going on with characters in Dressrosa or not, I hope that these next few arcs will do some of them justice. Lately, it's just Oda bunching a few of the Strawhats together and then focusing his attention else where. This Sanji bounty thing has a lot of potential and I'm reading some pretty decent theories regarding what the reasoning could be. So I'm excited.

    Sanji's main role has always been behind the scenes/ espionage. I'm sure Oda has big plans for the other Mugiwara's since he's well aware that they were MIA for over a year now.

    Usopp has had some pretty significant developments in the Dressrosa arc. Increased courage plus Observation haki. Considering his dream of becoming a "Brave Warrior of the seas" he's well on his way.

    I have a feeling that

    Is Sanji's father

    That's a bit much
    Sanji was not the baddest in the crew
    He didn't regulate women when he needed to in the earlier arcs and put his friends in danger

    Zoro was always the most badass
  • Raz0rRaz0r Did you really just write that? Joined: Posts: 25,824 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    Zoro is a badass if you're one of those wimpy dudes who went through life being picked on wishing you could do something about it. Sanji has style with how he does things.

    Sanji is cool peeps.

    He's probably my third favorite Straw Hat behind Luffy and Robin.

    New chapter up. Mangapanda's version http://www.mangapanda.com/one-piece/802
    Self-proclaimed son of Whitebeard going fucking in on all of whitebeards old affiliates. Also he's a Warlord.

    We were just talking about Minkmen and what do you know? They're about to show up. Also a thousand year old Elephant that towers a skyscraper.
    "You embarrass me," said Shadow, smiling. Then Shadow took his penis out and picked Cream up. "Let me charge up for a super ejaculation!" Shadow laid Cream down on the ground and then took his penis with him, which was already huge and shaking with sex energy, and found Cream's Piggy Bank, which was full of coins and dollars and things to save up for money, so she could buy what she wanted when she had enough inside it. Shadow took it and using his muscular penis, smashed a hole right through the piggy bank so now it was sitting on top of his penis like a hat. Shadow's penis looked like it belonged in a fashion show.

    Who did whitebeard fuck to be having children?

    EDIT: Whitebeard did not fuck her they are lying. Whitebeard would be in some nice exotic fine women.

    As strong as he is, he might legitimately be his son.

    I don't understand the elephant tho. All those years of shit on your back you never once thought about rolling around in the water to scratch that inevitable itch?

    Agreed. Those retarded proportions with guys being absurdly top heavy with chicken legs is just infuriating to me. Like how the fuck can somebody walk like that? They'd have to walk on their fist like Mugshot from Sly Cooper. Also what women could Whitebeard have fucked without killing them? Damn sure not that lil munchkin. His dick was probably bigger than her. Scum bags are the new Strawhat imposters but they're getting rich and fame off of Whitebeard's name instead. But can't wait to see the return of Marco and company. And how insanely tall does that Elephant have to be to be able to walk across the ocean???

    I just read the chapter a few hours ago and it was pretty decent, especially the ending where we finally get to see Zou and find out that it's a living island due to that 1000-year-old elephant being a major part of the island itself.

    As for that so-called "Whitebeard Jr" and his mama, sorry but I smell some scamming bullshit from the mother who I think is just using Whitebeard's name to become famous and is only using her strong and child-like son as a pawn. -_-

    Design looks really stupid, I think Oda maybe goes abit to far sometimes.

    I was expecting something badass like Kaido's design

    Jr is legit strong there, so there's a silver lining.

    Have to assume Jr is a scam just based on how obviously suspect the mother is. Admittedly that could be Oda throwing out a red herring to keep us guessing.

    I was pretty amazed at how much ground was covered in this chapter- an entire sea voyage, characterization of Bart's crew, a quick check in with Kizaru at marine headquarters (have we seen him since the time-skip?),new antagonists revealed along with a heap of his relevant background (Shikibuchi status, apparent motives, recent history, his potential rivals: Marco/Blackbeard/Luffy), and finally establishing a whole new idiosyncratic setting for the new story arc.

    Busy fucking chapter, all without it seeming awkward or too forced.

    Edit- other thoughts:

    There's some pretty interesting stitch-work on Jr's body, makes me wonder if he's been surgically modified or constructed to have Whitebeard's level of strength and some passing similarities.

    Also that name "Weeble"... weebles wobble but they don't fall down because they are ridiculously bottom-heavy, which is the exact inverse of this guy.

    Minkmen on Zou. Why did Law hide his crew in such a hard-to-reach place?

    'Cause as has been pointed out here, Bepo is likely a minkman. Which explains why he would know of it, while the rest of the people had to get there via vivre cards.

    Zou, then, doesn't seem like a likely location for the Strawhats to run into Marines OR Weeble. Which makes it likely to be a (relatively) shorter arc, maybe? Would be weird for Oda to plant both the Sanji subplot and Weeble right before leaving them entirely alone for a whole year.

    Then again, this IS One Piece. So you never know.

    Also, Weeble looks oddly familiar... Hmm. Oh, I know:

    Well not really, have you seen the episode of futurama where Fry finds the lost city of Atlanta? He was about to bed some mermaid but when he realized that she would release her eggs into the water and he would then fertilize them and not actually have sex Fry ran for the hills.

    Often Sharks and other fish expel their eggs which attach to sea plants to remain planted through the fertilization process. Besides look how large that princess was as a baby, she would have torn Queen Otohime in twain.

    Here's hoping this Zou arc isnt as fking long as Dressrosa. I mean sure its a giant Elephant, but there is only so much you can do there... right?

    Anyway, what are Minkmen? Furries? Animal equivalent of Fishmen?
  • JoshkazJoshkaz Princess Luna is my Waifu Joined: Posts: 15,278
    No one knows.

    Assuming they're animal humanoids.

    Also can't see this arc taking a long time. Hopefully.

Like a poster above said that Elephant probably saw the horrors of the void century and kept moving without looking back .

    One piece deals with the idea of freedom heavily and the burden of the past on the present and future .Tijuana Wolf got a land bridge that's been worked on for over a hundred years for no apparent reason besides the need for slaves.

    Now that I think about it, that rush of water Sanji and co. we're hit by was probably a result of the elephant spraying itself with its trunk.

    This means that deer girl they spotted is probably one of the mink[wo]men and that Kaido's men are also on the island for whatever reason.

    The reunification will happen soon!
