A Sucker for Strawhat Crew Group Shots [One Piece 989]

Look at at Monster Trio in the middle looking all cool. Yeah, I said it.

Talk about fan service! I love the Strawhat Crew, and baby, that’s what I got in spades.

Franky’s definitely the MVP of the chapter. Not just with saving Nami and Carrot, but having such cool lines about what it means to be the crew of the Future Pirate King. And, that’s exactly who Luffy’s crew is! Now, it’s time once again to put their money where their mouth is.

Actually, I’m not really worried about the crew’s opponents besides Big Mom, Queen, and King. The Tobi Roppo? Bleh! The Strawhat crew can deal with them, no prob. The Numbers? Who cares?! General Franky and Monster Point Chopper’s got them. Honestly, I’m a bit disappointed at how lackluster Kaido’s crew is overall. Very few of them screams powerful, it’s mostly a numbers game backed up by ancient zoan fruits. The Big Mom Pirates are way more interesting to me.

Finally! An appropriate reaction to someone named Oden.

I did like Nami going Full Little Sister Mode when Franky saved her and Queen’s shocked reactions. They never get old. A shame Queen is the only member of Kaido’s crew I give a crap about. But, hey, that can always change. The arc’s not over yet, y’all.

So, how’s Luffy gonna reach Kaido? Guess someone’s gonna have to keep King and Queen distracted. That’s where Zoro and Sanji come in, I guess. I mean, who else is there? Kid and Law? Perhaps, but I see them ultimately battling Kaido alongside Luffy so I’ll put my money on Zanji taking out Kaido’s top 2.

You can practically taste the sexual tension.

This was a good chapter! Give me Strawhats interacting with each other and baddies and I’m a happy camper. Give me Nico Robin delivering a Ted Talk and I’ll be even happier. Hey, if Sarah Silverman can do it, so can Robin.


  1. I think the entire rebellion is going to team up against Kaido- and it’ll ultimately come down to Luffy, Kid, Law, Zoro, Kin’emon, Killer, Inu, Neko, Sanji, and possibly Yamato teaming up to bring him down.

  2. Hey there I am so glad I found your blog,
    I really found you by accident, while I was researching on Google for something else, Nonetheless I am here
    now and would just like to say many thanks for
    a incredible post and a all round interesting blog (I also love the
    theme/design), I don’t have time to go through it all at the moment but
    I have saved it and also added in your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be
    back to read much more, Please do keep up the excellent work.

    • Thanks!
