So even the cover stories are having empty content...I guess new lows for the series will become a norm.
Similarly, I have no idea why Oda is overlapping a commoner with the actor that inspired Akainu.
I don't know how Kaidou is getting drunk off of such a small barrel, especially considering we see him drinking from bigger containers normally. Kaidou isn't shown sweating like Luffy, so he isn't dehydrated.
Oda doesn't mention or label the first part as a dumb drunk phase, so Kaidou's memory is at least relatively accurate...so now even more B.S. is expanding. It isn't all that hard to remember WHITEBEARD. Sure we had 3D2Y since then, but getting a beatdown in a 1v1 should be hard to forget. This is similarly matched by Kaidou suddenly regaining fast reaction times without any kenbonshoku usage. He can dodge things without paying attention, but he cannot react to an obvious attack later? Pretty much all of Luffy's attacks are obvious since he has to combine Gear Second with Gear Third (and technically also haoushoku coating since most of Luffy's attacks and defenses have the visualization for it [the kick has it on the panel after]).
The one interesting point for me is the person the Gorosei want to eliminate outside of Kaidou and Big Mom. But then again, with all of the B.S. the normal pattern of diversion might not be accurate anymore.
And that's a disappointment...Zunisha is just the most legendary devil fruit? This not only kills the essence of Blackbeard's hype and rise, but it now creates the opportunity to completely delegitimize Luffy's victory. Zunishe BETTER NOT be the one to deliver the winning blow. I forget if they had a male or female voice, but he/she can be the one to defeat Big Mom.
Just in case people forgot: Zunisha tells us that they were forced into the "punishment" of having to walk around endlessly. Some sort of Ancient Kingdom technology would have been much more fun, but it just being the truly strongest fruit ability is a bit lame and also is contradicted by there being multiple super-giant shadows in the Floridian Triangle. Unless that's just re-using the phenomenon of Skypeia. Oda doesn't have the credit to think he will properly connect everything, so this just being more rushed B.S. changes is what I'm going to operate on. And Sanji befriending a second mouse is probably the only positive outcome out of many failures which is the opposite of the normal ratio.
