First of all, I'm surprised that it did not take long for Luffy to pick a fight with Kaido. I don't blame Luffy for trying, but he should know that he can not defeat the final boss so early. At least it was enjoyable watching Luffy beat the snot out of Kaido's men before this happened. I was hoping that Law would retrieve Luffy, but Hawkins got in the way and Luffy is thrown into a prison again. The good news is that Law got away and Kin'emon's plan isn't entirely ruined yet. Once again, Luffy's luck played a role. Kaido could have killed Luffy right there, but he decided that Luffy is worth keeping around and I'm sure we can all expect that he's going to regret it later. I'm certain that Luffy's experiences inside Udon prison is going to …Read more >
There's nothing much to say about this chapter except that we got an awesome Round 1 fight between Luffy and Kaido. This chapter was a short one with an expected ending.
Only other info we can cover are that Speed failed to protect Tama and we don't know what happened to her. Also, we don't know the fate of the Straw Hats and the Allies, but I assume they'll be saved somehow. Luffy seems to have gotten a good fight in against Kaido even if he didn't stand a chance against him. It seems that Kaido is weakened if he's drunk as enough of Luffy's punches knocked him out of his drunken stupor. What impressed me about Kaido was him mocking Luffy's declaration that he's going to become the Pirate King with a nice swing of the mace and a badass…Read more >
Aren't I amazing?
No, I'm totally not drunk. Everything I do is completely intentional, and is perfectly designed and executed to obliterate my enemies. I just one-shotted some of my pesky enemies in a single page. Big Mom never did that, the weakling. I can't wait until I vaporize that old hag too.
Though it really is a shame, I was hoping there might be a challenge that could kill me. That blow to the head certainly hurt, but if that's the best whoever's got then he'll probably be dead in half a chapter. A real shame. Whitebeard got to meet death, Vergo and Monet too, so why not me? Alas, I fear the Wano arc will soon be over, but such is the life of me, Kaido of the Beasts. At least it was flashy.

Kaido's sudden appearance in the Kuri region is what I would say horrible timing. Kin'emon already told Luffy's group not to be discovered, but Jack already has been made aware of Luffy's presence and is searching for him so Kin'emon's plan is already facing complications. And what's worse is that Kaido orders Jack to capture his enemies immediately. So basically, the Straw Hats are facing a conundrum and we already saw what Jack is capable of when it comes to his missions.
Right now, I see two choices for the Straw Hats. The first one is remain hidden even if it means letting Jack slaughter innocents and there probably won't be anything left to save in the Kuri region by the time of the Fire Festival. The second choice is fight Jack and pr…Read more >
Welcome back from the One Piece hiatus where we're given such a loaded chapter like this one. Once again, a fan theory is proven to be correct and this chapter lives up to the hype.
We begin with an explanation for the festival that's going to take place on Kaido's personal island. When Kaido, Orochi, and their men are drunk from the banquet, the Straw Hats and their allies will launch their attack and start their rebellion. However, Kinemon needs to find some allies based on the crescent moon mark on their left ankle. We also find out that Kinemon is married to O-Tsuru which is kinda unusual. Kinemon hands out the roles to the Straw Hats: Zoro and Usopp will be stationed in the capital city even though Zoro screwed up, Franky will find…Read more >
Surprisingly, despite Kaido contributing to the chapter page, he still did not make any reaction/review blog post. So it's another job for this lousy MF to take over. CHAP[TER] REVIEW *claps* CHAP[TER] REVIEW *claps*
I was supposed to do this review last night but it's already past 11 pm here in the Philippines. I think it's not healthy to continue posting this anymore so I decided to continue doing it this morning. I won't also be doing pun polls because this is not the way I do my comedy. The point here is that this particular flashback solved almost anything that's needed to be asked about the origins of the Kozukis. We just have to dive into the details.
So the Kozuki Family members have been named: Sukiyaki the grandpa, Oden the dad, Toki th…Read more >
Some major info-dumping this chapter, which is to be expected given that this is the point in the arc when we get the historical context on why the bad guys need to go down. We however also find out that there's a freakin Devil Fruit that can literally send you forward in time, and Oda cleverly closes the can of worms by clarifying that the time traveling can only be forward. Certainly begs the question of the fruit's current whereabouts if Toki is indeed deceased, but all in due time! Let's dig in shall we?
I first find it quite interesting that there appears to be some kind of door at the base of the rock formation Oden Castle rests upon. It could end up being a completely minor detail, but it piqued my curiousity nonetheless just what c…Read more >
First of all, I like how the Wano Arc started, with Luffy kicking butt like nobody’s business. This is much better than how the Whole Cake Island arc started, with Luffy's stupidity putting the Sanji Retrieval Team in a food shortage crisis. After his victory over Katakuri, I don't expect anyone below the Three Disasters to be a problem for Luffy unless they have some tricky abilities like Hawkins. May as well enjoy watching Luffy win some easy fights before the next hard one comes. I'm also glad that Zoro's first appearance in this arc was him cutting down a scumbag in a badass fashion and walked away like he doesn't give a damn. Still, I hope that the Revolutionary Army's declaration of war will be shown in story and not happen off-panel…Read more >
So, last week, folks were speculating about the graves at the end of Chapter 918. A good amount of fans were split on whether Momo and Co. were ghosts or somehow traveled through time. Eventually, people were right about the time theory for now, but we'll dig deep into that later.
We start off with Tama being able to tame Speed and use her as a personal steed on the way back home, followed by the villagers thanking Luffy for giving them food. Said food was enough to keep the villagers healthy for the first time in almost forever, even if Law thinks it's wrong for a pirate to be nice. With Tama going home, we'll probably see Tenguyama along with Tama and Speed soon. Remember, Tenguyama is still waiting for someone to meet with him at hi…Read more >
Decided to exclude a pun-like way to identify this blog because nothing comes to mind, but that's hardly important, anyway.
Not surprising that Luffy took down Holdem and "had his way around" Speed followed by doing something charismatic for Tama's people as thanks for her earlier help. Although I'm not sure if the average Headliner is weaker than him, he has always found his means to get out of a life-threatening situation, even though we'll more than likely to see Jack and hopefully more Beasts Pirates soon. What really surprised me was that both Tama's Devil Fruit power can be used on someone like Speed which adds light to why she was targeted in the first place other than the gorilla swordsman thing and how Speed seemed to have been a b…Read more >
