Luffy gained Wifi Haki. Cool, but he still needs a Gum-Gum VPN if he doesn’t want the World Government knowing his browser history.
So it was Luffy calling Momonosuke, not Seakings. Okay. Law’s submarine saves Luffy’s butt once again. The Heart Pirates should start an Uber service with that thing. He’d be the richest pirate in the Grandline just from charging Luffy alone.
That takes care of the rubber man, but what about Momonosuke and Shinobu? They’re falling now too (How long has it’s been since Shinobu used her devil fruit power? I forgot she had one.)! No problem. Momo can fly in his beast dragon form and Shinobu can ninja glide.
And with Kaido distracted by Yamato, nows the perfect time for them to make their escape. Yamato VS Kaido. It’s been a semi-long time coming. I’m jazzed about it. But that also means we’re probably getting flashbacks of their past and current relationship. The Wano Hater™ in me is not happy about this arc lasting even longer but what can I do? Stop reading until the Wano Arc ends? Hahahahaha! ……Could I? I’ve been reading One Piece “weekly” for over a decade. I never considered it until now…
Noooo. The Wano Arc isn’t that bad. I can keep going, just like Zeus. Yep, it finally happened. Zeus merged with Nami’s climate baton, instantly making him a permanent part of Nami’s arsenal going forward. It’s the upgrade we all knew was coming but very much welcomed.
Nice of Oda reminding us of Tama’s dumpling plan. Guess I’ll start the clock on that. I give it about 10 to 15 chapters before Operation Dumpling’s fully realized.
Sanji VS Queen is a go! Let’s see where that goes. By the way, I love Sanji’s interaction with Chopper. Chopper really is the little brother of the crew and I love how it shows with everyone, even the Straw Hat Pirates’ chef.
Law and Kid VS Big Mom. Yeah, we knew it was coming. Can they win? Depends. It’s possible but I’m thinking they’ll get some help at some point. Or maybe not. …Hmm? If Luffy beats Kaido, then his rivals need to keep up with his feats. Law and Kid beating Big Mom could be how that happens.
This was a good chapter! I liked the announcement and Sanji the most. Queen comes in next, but he’s always a treat to see. Am I forgetting something? Oh, yeah! Kin’emon’s dead. I think. It’d be a good way for him to go out but this is One Piece. Oda keeps his death cards close. And if anyone in the Akazaya Nine has enough plot armor to survive this arc, it’s Kin’emon. And Frog Mary. Don’t sleep on Frog Mary, it’s gonna be the next breakout character. You heard it here first.
