Quick question: I was running issues with the officials because they don't allow copying of the image link (or at least when I tried a couple times). Are you just using the URL of the chapter? Since it's a reader, I don't think the URL changes, so I'm not sure on the mechanics (which I could be thinking of the wrong button with "imgur function" too). >
> Sanji and Jinbe are making light work of Kaido’s Gifters. Certainly making it look a lot easier than Zoro, Kidd and Killer were earlier.
> Speaking of Sanji, I think he might win his end of arc fight without his Raid Suit. It’s time for his name to be as well known as “Straw Hat”, “Knight of the Sea” and “Pirate Hunter”. We don’t want him just known as “Vinsmoke”, because that’s not who he is. His best moments have come when he’s been an unknown quantity (see: Alabasta, Enies Lobby). But again, it’s time to put the name “Black Leg” on the map.
Context is everything. The excessively goofy character designs as well as their comedic relief personalities is the aspect getting twisted here. If Sanji were doing this to the Gifters Yamato is fighting, we have a case for this second point here. Sanji is not all that different from Page One with the power ups from the Raid Suit. Unless his climax fight is against someone low ranking, the Raid Suit is a necessity. >
> Zoro vs Queen setup is happening I think? It looks like he’s going to have to deal with Apoo as well to secure that antidote (unless Chopper, Brook and Robin take him down - which would be HUGE, I think).
I hope so on everyone else being able to take on Apoo. It's a perfect situation since there is an easy and universal way to negate his fruit ability. Plus they have tons and tons of "allies" in the goal. >
> The highlight of the chapter for me HAS to be Young Master Yamato, though. Like, what a way to announce yourself to everyone. Tanking an attack head on without blinking,
Even worse/better, she took it to the back of the head (vs. head on). They cheap shotted Yamato, and it didn't do anything other than cause minor scratches/maybe minor burns.>
Queen played Appo dirty. That was very hilarious. Appo is going to have a hard time trying to keep the antidote away from the strawhats.
From everyone! Even some of the weak Kaidou underlings are going after him.
Galkie lots of great stuff for sure!
Chopper vs. Queen in regards to the ability to "mass produce" the antibody. I don't know how Oda plans to pull this off...
It isn't all that hard when you are given the "answer" to a test. But I do think that eventually Oda has to move on from the pet joke. >
When Kaido said 'WB and Roger did it right,' was he referring to the fact they they both died in a very outstanding manner? In which they themselves chose to die? I'm seeing a hint of a backstory.
This is in regards to all of them (including Kaidou) having respect for Wano Kuni's "warrior spirit" (to use a generic kamikaze, fight until the death, etc. mentality). I do agree with you and Marco that it is a major "inspiration" point that they all naturally relate to. They all already had it in them before they encountered samurai, so it is probably only to emphasize that it is universal among samurai.>
With the way things are going I'm pretty sure BM will have something else to focus on to make her leave (obviously something related to the ancient weapons).
So it is true that the figure with that clothing back at the execution was Yamato! Hats off to Artur (from Library of Ohara) for noticing that tiny detail.
Yup. What Oda chooses as her parting words in regards to Luffy will be key for me.
Nice, Oda's going to have the breadcrumbs, so glad someone picked up on it.>
Lol I was also wondering about that. To cure all those people means that he has to prepare them in a very short amount of time but there's no way that is possible lol. It's not like you can just copy paste the antidote I guess we'll see what he's gonna do.
Exactly...it's protected by plot armor so I give it a pass, but he needs at least a makeshift lab to make it somewhat believable. Queen having all of his weapons close implies Chopper can possibly access Queen's lab (Jump Point while someone distracts Queen, which is quite easy).>
Epic chapter! Loved the dramatic takes here. And wtf were those giraffe and chicken smile users hahahahahaha
"Dramatic takes" in the chapter or on the board? 100% comedic relief characters. I mean...the guys face is on the chicken's butt...>
How long did it take Chopper to cure the people back in Zou island? I think that might give an idea.
It took both Chopper and Caesar to work together to make the antidote. Caesar didn't have one, so they had to do the real process of isolation and trial and error over and over. Off the top of my head, there was a 24 hour time limit for death. They cut it close, and that was with a full lab (the ram-doctor) and two experts working together.>
I don't know about you guys (you'll probably criticize me for this) but I think he's right.
Read below the Twitt to understand what I mean.
I'm probably the biggest proponent of this sort of "defending the plot". It will come, but MUCH later than people are thinking/implying. It isn't what we want, but that's the reality of Luffy being way too weak. Zoro, Jinbei, and Sanji (hell the entire crew). Everyone is way too weak.
