Niji and Yonji being captured is definitely better than completely empty/useless cover story page, but I don't see the point if Big Mom gets defeated in Wano Kuni. If Sanji is the one to save them, that would fit the most for the plot, but that probably won't happen due to the time restrictions Oda is putting on the series. I guess we'll see where this goes.
So just like the anime accelerating the rate of Ice Demon freezing people, are we accelerating how fast heat is killing people? Even the weakling fighters are supposed to be much higher than just one douriki, so dehydration isn't that big of a problem since people are shown dealing with much worse. I'm really not liking the fake drama.
And speaking of which, Oda has to do the same thing for Zoro? He's already done the EXACT SAME THING BEFORE (Kuma after the Moria fight). That's how we know things are bad when there is clear rehashing of content. I just hope it is a real grim reaper and not just some illusion. Brook isn't that tall/his arms aren't that long, so even though the face is similar, it should be someone or something else. If it's Brook...even worse in my eyes so hopefully not.
WTF...really?! Kiku wasn't enough of a sacrificial lamb that now even Izo has to be defeated? Even worse, CP0 is being weakened just as much as Yonkou/admirals so it takes an INJURED Izo to lose (vs. direct contradiction of Yonkou execs being easily defeated). I think this is the part of the B.S. that annoys me the most. There has to be a sacrifice/lost since things no longer fully connect, and this is the crap that is just ruining the series. This sort of stuff isn't needed and shouldn't have been needed, but we just keep getting more and more with the series going in this new direction.
So even Kanjurou's dead spirit is being powered up. Yay...more fake drama. Why not just keep Yonkou at their power level rather than weaklings powering up? We had an ABUNDANCE of enemies and Oda STILL couldn't give us climax fights for the entire crew. God damn...that is so pathetic.
Unless Law and Kid have unlimited awakening energy, I am dying to know how Oda explains attacks without haki are actually damaging Big Mom. Her defense is pretty much exactly the same as Kaidou with her "iron balloon" (which is still an inaccurate description by Sanji if I'm remembering correctly). I wasn't going to be fully negative, but even more B.S. with the soul homies just watching Big Mom get attacked. They are fully autonomous so Oda tries to explain it by Hera's hair blocking the view of Law. If fans actually accept this without question then I think I get confirmation of my bias of how stupid people had no idea the depth of complexity and truly only were capable of reacting "OMG ONE PIECE!!!". Ugh...
