Never thought I’d say it, but I think I’m interested in Who’s Who now.
A former CP9 agent with fighting potential on par with Rob Lucci? Possibly thrown in jail for not guarding a devil fruit? I’m all ears, Oda! But why was he thrown in jail over losing the Gum-Gum fruit to the freakin’ Red Hair Pirates? Hmm… Could the fruit had been originally for a Celestial Dragon or other royal big-wig? And ole’ Whosey got thrown behind bars because of their hissy fit? There’s few people with authority over CP9 so it’d have to be someone high on the World Government food chain. Well, maybe it was just Spandine being a petty jerk. A simple answer, but it makes sense.
Welcome to the man-beast portion of the officer fights. Who’s Who and Queen are up first. Ah, yes, Queen. We learn he was once a member of Judge’s research team called MADS and a…CYBORG! Whaaaaaaaaaa? And here I thought all Brachiosaurus can extend their necks and shoot laser beams out their mouths. That’s sarcasm, Y’all. Look it up.
Cyborg Queen VS Raid Suit Sanji. Safe to say that’s coming. So is King VS Zoro (Miyagi’s about to give Zoro that restorative OG Kush). What? You thought Marco was gonna take King down? Nah! He’ll find something else to do or maybe provide an assist before giving Luffy a protein shake and quick patch up.
Chopper’s Baby Geezer mode. It exists. Moving on.
Tama activated the Gifters! It’s the primary focus of the chapter and nice to see finally happen but there’s nothing much to say about it. Yay? I guess?
This was a good chapter! Sanji and Zoro’s fights are [relatively] approaching, Luffy’s rescued, and the officer battles are kicking into high gear. Robin. It’s almost time for your return. I can feel it in my heart. Wait, no. That’s heartburn. Darn you spicy takeout! Agh!
