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 >
And we're back, but hey, we got an early chapter this time. It's also reported that chapters 918 and 920 will arrive early in their weeks while chapter 919 will get a normal release.
We learn more about the Paradise Food Reserve and how the Beasts Pirates are robbing the people of Wano of healthy food and clean water. Speed finally makes her debut and she looks gorgeous, but she needs to work on her smile. The biggest concern is how long she'll last since she's a Headliner like Holdem, but we'll get to that later.
The main focus on the chapter is rescuing Tama from Holdem. After, Holdem interrogates Kiku about Shutenmaru and his gang of thieves, we get some bad news. Jack was rescued from the sea after getting wrecked by Zunisha near Z…Read more >
i havent made a blog in a while and idk what the rules even are anymore but im voicing my appreciation that people still write these from time to time. keep up the good work and smile :))Read more >
Wano is undoubtedly going to be one of, if not the biggest arc in One Piece up to this point. Luffy and his allies are going after the strongest creature in the world, in one of the world's most legendary nations. And this massive-scale conflict will be triggered by...a sumo match. Who'd've thunk?
I've appreciated the ability of this arc to start small and slowly build up to the epic scale we'll eventually be on while developing Wano's rich culture, and so this sumo fight was a lot of fun for me. Just getting to watch Luffy cut loose and be himself was a nice pace that can sometimes be lost when an arc gets into the thick of things, and I think Oda was having a lot of fun with it as well. Luffy barely knows Kiku and so doesn't give a shit a…Read more >
Well, another week and another set-up chapter for another town in Wano. This time, we explore Bakura Town and learn more about our new female characters. But first, let's talk about Bellamy. It feels refreshing to see Bellamy turn things around and leave his pirate past behind. I don't usually talk about the cover stories, but I felt that I had to talk about Bellamy's developments.
We start off with Urashima's obsession with Kiku and how he wants to get her hand in marriage. He is convinced by another Smile User known as Mouseman to just take her by force no matter what. We get to see Urashima evolve as a villain and you gotta feel bad for that racoon dog.
Now we're introduced to another goofy character in the form of Holdem who's a f…Read more >
Since apparently the usual reviewers haven’t written down this, I took it upon myself because I wanted to say some things while I had the time.
Apparently, there’s now a side story with the Grand Fleet. I have no idea what it’s about, or even if it might involve Bellamy by default for having Luffy’s Vivre Card as well, but it should be interesting.
Back to Wano, it’s nice to see that Ace’s one-time “Koby” is all healed up and eating well. It also appears that the Kozuki Family were even more prominent in Wano than they were before Kaido started backing the snake of a Shogun. Whether that means Shoguns were once chosen by merit, or that Wano used to have a legitimate Emperor in power before things went topsy-turvy for the place is beyond me a…Read more >
Dammit, I hate when a single chapter gets sandwiched between two breaks, but we have a Japanese holiday next week as all of Weekly Shonen Jump will take that week off.
So, we start off with an alright fight between 3 Supernovas and right off the bat, Luffy has his dumbass moments. First, Luffy lying about Kaido badly when Zoro told him he shouldn't have answered Hawkins' question about who runs Wano and second, Luffy not knowing how to use a sword despite Zoro wanting to use it since it's a high ranking sword. It's funny that Zoro can be foolish when he chooses to pay attention to a sword instead of the enemies. Even with this cursed sword, Luffy, and possibly the other Straw Hats, have a 19% chance to leave Wano after a month. Please …Read more >
Say Hello to one of my OC's
Wil D. Magnus: Also known as Wild Magnus, he is the captain of the Wild Pirates, a group of pirates who are known for their wild and unpredictable nature. Later he is given the name ‘Dread Wolf.’. In truth they are a kindly group who would rather help people than rob them preferring to only steal or hurt those who are in a position of power and abuse their lessors. Wil in particular is a strong believer in using his strength for good and is a intelligent individual.
His physical appeance as follows. He has white hair that is long and spiked back reaching the bottom of the back of his neck. He also has two miniature dreadlocks near the front of his neck. He has big green-blue eyes, he has a very angular face and h…

I'm alive! I think...
This chapter, like the last one, managed to be both full of exposition while incredibly fast-paced, so much so that I'm almost out of breath. This is exciting!
There were some pretty nice panels in this chapter. Luffy's simple declaration that Ace is dead, Tama hitting him when they're riding, the shot of Wano Wasteland...pretty captivating stuff.
The character that's the most interesting to me in all this is Hitetsu. There's so much about him that seems untapped, like the history of his clan, the person he's waiting for, how his nose seems to grow and shrink. I hope we get to see him again soon.
Luffy's reunion with Zoro was pretty charming, and it's great to see them back in action together. And now we have three Supern…Read more >
First of all, shame on Kaido for slacking off on last week's review, he has the even numbered chapters while I have the odd numbered chapters. Second, it was kinda hard thinking up of a 9/11 joke with the title especially when I could have used some Jet Fuel Can't Melt Steel Beams joke, but whatever. Third, let's see how long we can adapt to the new arc princess, Tama.
We start off with knowing how Sanji and Co. survived the storm as Luffy inflated himself like a Dobson drawing and had his crew jump off of him. However, that octopus from the last chapter grabbed onto Luffy and made him and the Sunny get sucked into the whirlpool. Fast forward to the present, as Luffy has survived and lost his Vivre Card from the storm. As Luffy is abo…Read more >
Since I'm very bad at making puns or reacting to them, I'm paging you Kaido and Ghmorello. Yo, where are you guys? I mean it should be Good Morning America the time I was supposed to post this almost 2 hours ago. This is your job, not mine! Anyway, here's my review. My personal thought to this chapter is pretty much the same way I would react to pun jokes. Meh.
As mentioned in this undone revision by Rhavkin, this type of opening happens on most arcs so this is not surprising, further supporting my claim on why this chapter is meh. Some people at One Piece Reddit says this is a normal One Piece arc opener, reminiscent of Skypiea or Fishman Island Arcs. What I think is that the hype on the previous chapters were a little too much that this chapte…Read more >
This series has been the longest thing i have ever watched and read and will continue to watch and read, but im just getting a little tired. They have so many stories needed to be concluded like luffy reunitimg with shanks and usopp seeing his dad, does luffy become a warlord, will jimbei join the straw hat pirates, and most of all will they ever get the one piece. Im sure the answers will be revealed but i feel like ive been waiting an eternity. Well nothing i can do but wait.
Also i hope they tell us gold rogers whole backstory.Read more >
So, we're finally here in Wano and we get to see some familiar faces for the first time in two years. So, let's see how this arc begins.
We start off with the Minks near a random village where Nekomamushi is meeting up with Marco. It seems that Marco is starting to take a Rayleigh-like appearance with the glasses as it's revealed that he was the doctor of the Whitebeard Pirates. Now serving as a village with doctor with his phoenix powers, we get a calmer side of him. It's also revealed that this village is where Whitebeard and Ace are buried and we also get into Weevil. While Weevil and Bakkin are looking for some lost Whitebeard treasure, it turns out Bakkin may have conceived a child with Whitebeard since she was on his ship 40 year…Read more >
Serious talk. (DISCLAIMER: This blog post falls under One Piece Wiki things, not to the work One Piece itself)
So some of you might have heard or read about the details of the Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market, especially those of you guys from Europe or just really interested with what's going on over there so you're updated with whatever European news was available. Thanks to the EU website and the trusty Wikipedia, a directive (for those of you who don't know) refers to an act that sets a goal that all EU countries should attain, but it is up to the member countries on how will they follow.

Was it ever said how the unjustifiably angry people of Dressrosa learned Rebecca was a member of the Riku Family? I don't think I looked over that part. I wouldn't be surprised if Donquixote Doflamingo wanted to be a sadist even after everything that had happened, but last I checked, her Mom faked her death to avoid a scandal of marrying a criminal in secret. Can anybody fill that question for me, please?Read more >
I am a huge fan of Urouge, along with Law and Kid. However, lets focus on Urouge for now, who has gotten the least amount of exposure. When he was first introduced he had the lowest bounty at 108,000,000 from the other Super Rookies. This could make people think that he was one of the weakest from the group; however, I always thought that he would actually be one of the strongest from the group. He is the oldest from the group, plus he hailed from a sky island. His bounty could also be this low because of him possibly having a laid back personality. Thus the marines do not see him as huge threat. Meaning that his activity in the blue seas could be fairly recent, thus his bounty might not accurately reflect his strength. I think this is fur…Read more >
First of all, I’m fine with having an arc that focuses on other people aside from the Straw Hats. Sometimes, it’s good to have a break from watching the Straw Hats causing trouble to see what else is going on in the world.
This pirate group that Garp and Hina mentioned sure is interesting. I guess this means there are still more enemies (beside the Yonko) for the Straw Hats to fight. The straw hat in the secret chamber sure was unexpected. How many more mysteries are we going to be introduced to in the future and what is this invention of Vegapunk’s that is supposed to make the Shichibukai system obsolete? Also, you don’t suppose that the fourth Road Poneglyph is hidden somewhere in the Holy Land.
I really feel sorry for Shirahoshi. She is f…Read more >
The imbodiment of the World Government hype I've been building up in my 5.5 years of reading One Piece. Something unimaginable, an immense, grim, figure that held it all. It all feels so imminent, and yet, still immeasurably far. Idk why I'M imparting so much flowery poetry, I haven't slept im nearly 24 hours, but it was all worth it to see 'im.
Yeah, Kuma's been impounded and is getting impaled, Bonney continues fueling speculations and implications galore, the Revolutionaries are hoping their impudent declaration of war won't come to an impasse, the Levely is impending, yada yada yada. Someone else can write a blog about that. Let's go back to Im before I implode.
OK, actually, I don't know what else to think or imply about Im. I'm impr…Read more >
Well well well, Oda sure does love Game of Thrones so much that he made a throne inspired by it, but let's get to the chapter.
We start off with Big Mom talking to Kaido of all people about who should beat Luffy as well as something that Kaido owes Big Mom to. Was it likely that Kaido was one of Big Mom's husbands? Was Kaido the father of Katakuri, Daifuku, and Oven in a way? There's also a chance of seeing Kizaru in the Wano Arc since he asked Sakazuki on whether or not he should go, but the samurai are a force to be reckon with. It's also good to see Garp being his joyful self again.
We also see Sterry being himself again as he witnesses the Empty Throne which symbolizes the peace around the world even though we don't have any peace,…Read more >

Pretty chill chapter.
Seeing Columbus on the front cover gives me flashbacks to 2015 when she was first mentioned - I remember some of us thinking she was a generic-looking dude. Well holding off until we got confirmation really paid off this time, and she amuses me quite a bit.
The interactions between the variety of characters was fun. Shirahoshi and Rebecca may not have been too beloved in their own arcs, but their amiableness is easy to get behind here and it's funny to see characters like Dalton become fellow Luffy fangirls. I was surprised to see Sai at the wedding, since the king had initially thought the Chinjaos wouldn't be coming with him. And Wapol adds yet another scumbag to the hive, wonder how long it'll take for the likes of h…Read more >
This is intended chiefly as a forum for debate over the introduction of time-travel/time-powers into One Piece. Apologies if this discussion has been had before.
In the previous post by Ghmorello summarising chapter 905, A FANDOM user pitched the idea that Ryokugyu could be a time-traveller, albeit one who travelled through a machine.
It’s worth considering: being an Admiral, Ryokugyu no doubt has a devil fruit, and the idea that it is related to an overpowered ability like time would easily put him on a par with (if not exceed) Fujitora’s own abilities. Besides which, other aspects of his character may hint to this being the case as well, i.e. he hasn’t eaten in 3 years, but if his body clock has been stopped, why would he need to?
At the ve…Read more >
So, we're back at the Reverie as we focus on the Royalties and get a big reveal even though it was a teaser.
We start off at the World's Biggest McDonald's known as New Marineford where once again, Akainu is pissed off about Fujitora and his actions back in Dressrosa. The Reverie Arc will also focus on the Admirals especially Ryokugyu.
At the base of Mariejois, we're introduced to some new kings and queens including a Mexican, some Russian Nesting Dolls, and fucking Abraham Lincoln of all people! More importantly, Princess Shirahoshi is achieving her dreams of exploring the outside world from her underwater kingdom. We finally see adult Stelly who is just as whiny and ugly as usual, but thankfully, Garp is there to put him in his place.…Read more >
As I look forward to the war with the Beasts Pirates, I decided to make my own prediction.
Read more >
In the first phase of the war, the alliance battles against Kaido's subordinate crews. Apoo battles against the alliance, not wanting Kaido as an enemy. After getting past the enemy crews, the alliance directly battles the Beasts Pirates. Luffy charges straight at Kaido. Some of the Beasts Pirates try to stop Luffy only to be pushed back by Luffy's allies. Two of the Three Disasters confront Zoro and Sanji. Jinbe joins late in the battle, apologizing for being late and fights the third Disaster. Some of Luffy's allies try to help Luffy only to be beaten by Kaido, leaving Luffy to fight Kaido himself. Kaido taunts Luffy, saying that he being called th…
It's about time the Revolution Army makes a decisive move against the World Government. Dragon, Sabo, and the revolutionary executives only specified on targeting the World Nobles and they did not say anything about the Gorosei or any of the royals attending the Reverie. Perhaps, they aim to bring down the World Nobles before going after the government leaders. I suppose they need to gain the people's trust and vilify the government before they focus on dismantling the current world order. By taking down the World Nobles, the Revolutionary Army could gain support from countries that suffered at the hands of those tyrants. While I'm looking forward to see the World Nobles get what's coming to them, I'm curious on what exactly the Revolution…Read more >
Apparently this chapter was really short, which I didn't pick up on at first because hoo boy is there a lot of new characters and new abilities here.
I really love the four Revo. executives for their diversity. We've got a giant okama, a mink, a token girl, and a guy who can turn into the flock of crows that we saw on Dressrosa. Maybe it's just me, but they feel reminiscent of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Morley is Drax, Betty Boop (which I will probably always call her) is Gamora, Lindbergh is Rocket and Karasu is Groot. All they're missing is a cocky guy to lead them, which I guess might be Sabo.
The powers were all pretty great too, and simple, from moving the ground like clay to turning into crows to strength through inspiration and also…Read more >
in chapter 903 we know sanji got 330 million bounty and luffy 1.5 billion bounty, but what about other straw hats?
in dressrosa when luffy beat doflaminggo, everyone that go to zou got raise 50 million (except chopper), so in this current arc the others (zoro, robin, franky, ussop, law) got raise how much? is it like last time 50 million?
in dressrosa who play active role like zoro got 200 million raise, franky and robin 50 million, ussop 170 million, so the WCI that play active role go how many raise?
well in dressrosa everybody got raise so no way in WCI got no raise right?Read more >
That's about all I can say. AnonymousAnomani (talk) 01:37, May 3, 2018 (UTC)Read more >
Pudding has been one of the foci of this arc, not only due to it being her wedding, but also by how interesting her character is constructed. Oda has always been great at creating characters that have unique personalities. Not only is he amazing at telling the stories of even the most unlikely characters in amazing ways, but also that he does it at all with certain minor characters like Mr. Pink. But is Pudding really one of those characters? Is she not simply a plot device? I'll try to debate this topic a bit while going through the arc as chronologically as I possibly can, and relate her to us (the audience), Sanji and herself.
From her initial meeting with the Straw Hats, Pudding was what felt like an amazing girl for Sanji to marry, es…

Hello recently Vinsmoke Sanji was change back to Just Sanji by a Majority vote In my option I believe the change was unnecessary because Sanji Vinsmoke linage was reveal to the world and Sanji simply stated that he does not want to hear anything Vinsmoke and Germa before his Vinsmoke linage it was reveal to World and his bounty poster was set under his real name
I like to hear your option on the change but let tried to civil about it because I don't want this blog to be delete it
I also created a poll so I can determine how many people agree that Vinsmoke Sanji should be change to Just Sanji or those who doesn't agree with the Change then go the Talk and have re discuss on the talk page
Also for any who vote for Vinsmoke Sanji or Just Sanji p…Read more >
Well, we're in a new story arc for the first time in two years. The Reverie is underway and we get some reactions from around the world.
First, we have Sanji trying to distance himself from the Vinsmokes by rejecting his own Raid Suit that was given to him by Niji even though Chopper and Luffy object. If that isn't enough to trigger Sanji, he discovers that his wanted poster now has "Vinsmoke Sanji" on it along with "Dead or Alive." Oh yeah, we got some new bounties and now Sanji's bounty is higher than Zoro's as it's currently at 330 million berries. Another crucial piece of info for the Straw Hats is that Zeus is with Nami now instead of Big Mom. Will Zeus remain with the Straw Hats or does he pull a Vivi and return to Big Mom?
So, l…Read more >
When Jinbe explained about Bege's past, I thought he was supposed to be a vicious person who is the type to follow the law of the jungle.
He had an opportunity to kill Big Mom when through some stroke of luck, he discovered a weakness he could exploit. Unfortunately, even with Luffy's help, he wasted his chance and the only damage his assassination attempt had inflicted on Big Mom was her scraped knees.
Another opportunity had presented itself when Bege had access to the one thing that Big Mom was after during her craving rampage, but he let that second chance slip by just because he gave Sanji his word of not sabotaging the cake. In this case, I’m not sure if I should be glad that Bege is honorable enough to keep his word.
Considering that S…Read more >
Although Whole Cake Island had finally ended there will be no new chapter this week for One Piece and instead we'll have to wait an extra week for the next arc's first chapter to come out. The reason behind this which I confirmed on page 254 on Viz's English release for the April 23rd volume has to do with the Golden Week holidays in Japan (because this affects the whole magazine, it can only be confirmed at the end of the WSJ volume instead of the end of each chapter which makes it harder to detect this).
Though I am disappointed to have to wait an extra week, at least for me it makes it easier for me due to a dental-related operation so I'll be happy when the end of next week rolls around to get the information from the next chapter.Read more >
Sanji: ok I'm leaving the cake in your hands. You better not do anything to it before Big Mom eats it.
Bege: do not worry. You can leave the cake to me.
Sanji then leaves Bege's ship with Pudding and heads back to the Thousand Sunny.
Bege: (whispers to himself) Screw you Black Leg. I’ve come so far and I'm not about to pass up on a chance to kill that lousy old hag. In the world of pirates, it's the law of the jungle you fool.
As the Fire Tank Pirates lure Big Mom away from the Sunny, Bege secretly orders his men to poison the cake and they do so without Chiffon noticing. They later reach Funwari Island, drop the cake off, and flee.
Big Mom eats the whole cake, enjoys it, and lies on the ground in bliss. Not knowing that Big Mom has been poison…Read more >
Now that the Whole Cake Island arc has ended, there are many comments I would like to make.
This sure has been one hell of an ordeal for the Straw Hats. Eat your heart out Urouge. Luffy defeated two of the Sweet Commanders. Snack must be the weakest of them since he was beaten by a rookie that wasn’t Luffy. Honestly, I don’t think any other super rookie could achieve what Luffy has accomplished unless they possess some overpowered Devil Fruit or have some incredibly dangerous weapons at their disposal such as Caesar’s Koro gas weapon. I say that Luffy should have the No. 2 spot in the Worst Generation. Unfortunately, Teach is No. 1 until Luffy defeats him. Oda really had me worried with Chapter 900. I thought it would be the chapter where t…Read more >

This is not at all how I expected the Whole Cake Island Arc to end.
Even though it felt clear for a year that the Straw Hats would have to get out of here by escaping rather than fighting, there always was the expectation that they might find a way to get everything out intact. There might be a sacrifice along the way, like Pedro, but for basically everything who's not a Straw Hat to be in jeopardy is...wow. I get that there might be some discontentment due to the Straw Hats having a penchant for willing their way to success...but honestly, what better way is there to demonstrate just how fearsome Big Mom is? Her arrival at the very end of this chapter (and likely arc as a whole) was absolutely chilling, and should set a very good tone for …Read more >
Are you familiar with the “How It Should Have Ended” (or HISHE for short) parodies you can find on YouTube?
I thought of some scenarios that could have gone differently in the Whole Cake Island Arc.
After Katakuri saw a terrible future during the Tea Party.
Katakuri: I see what you’re going to do.
Instead of telling Bege to kill Luffy, Katakuri traps both of them in mochi.
Katakuri: problem solved.
At the wedding venue, when the Charlotte Family holds the Vinsmokes at gunpoint after Perospero immobilized them.
Perospero: why are we just pointing our guns at them? Let’s get this over with and shoot them already!
The Charlotte Family then fires their guns, popping the Vinsmokes full of holes.
Perospero: Mission accomplishe…

It seems like we're finally done with the Whole Cake Island arc. While this is a big relief for all of us, it makes me think about the events that went down on WCI and how the world of One Piece will react once they see/hear about the damage that Luffy has caused with only HALF of his crew. More importantly, I want to get into the discussion of bounty predictions. I feel that it is really soon that their bounties are going up after being only an arc and a half away from their Dressrosa bounties but how could they not go up? Big Mom's tea party was filled with all sorts of underground crime bosses, the Germa 66, CP-0 agents, and Morgans, the president of the World Economic Journal. Once this news spread across the world I'm sure that not on…Read more >
So, we're back from the two weeks of waiting to see if the Straw Hats survived or not, oh, and yay for Gerth I guess. Come on, you knew they would not be killed off that easily.
First of all, Big Mom is back to her big fat old self again after enjoying the cake. Second, Smoothie is still doing nothing. Third, Moscato is alive. MOSCATO IS STILL ALIVE?! Does that mean Opera survived the soul suck too. In before the Pound and/or Pedro are still alive train goes full speed again.
Anyways, the Straw Hats survived by being eaten by Wadatsumi who decided to replace the Thousand Sunny with the Sun Pirates' ship, a ship that was built by Fisher Tiger himself. However, should-have-been Sweet Commander, Oven unleashes another attack in an attemp…Read more >
Now this may come as a shock to most of you, but I have some very sad news. Even though he's coped ok with health problems so far, Oda has tweeted that he's going to discontinue the manga so that he can recover for a year or two (although the tweet was since deleted so there is still hope). Very sad news, I'm sure you'll all agree, so with that in mind I know there's going to be questions. Everyone knows that when a mangaka starts delaying their series for health reasons, it's never a good sign - look at Hxh - so we can probably expect that even when it comes back it'll be substandard.
Regarding the plot, it's not a great place to hiatus or end, but at least there's a story reason for it - Luffy and the others are dead or captured. Going up…Read more >
My review blog for Chapter 873, all the way back in last summer, was titled "It Isn't Over Until the Fat Lady Eats". And now...it's over. It's all over.
I don't really know. I actually find it pretty fun when things get dark like this. Of course, the voice in my ear is telling me that this is hardly going to be lasting, they'll get out of this somehow, etc. But until then, I just like to relish it. The indomitableness of a Yonko crew. No matter how much they bend, they just won't break. Only when you feel like you've reached the top do you actually hit that wall. They may get out fine ultimately, but unless this is all an illusion or something it should have a considerable effect on how the crew is…Read more >
Hey y'all, Before I start on this, I just want to say that this is my first blog post, so I apologize in advance if it breaks any rules or policies on this wiki, as I haven't taken the time to read them yet..., (sowwy) since I usually don't come here other than to read the blogs y'all make for recent chapters (which I LOVE doing by the way, keep it up xo).
Also, I'm not a native-english-"speaker", (if that's what you call it), so I apologize if you experience any difficulty in trying to understand what I'm saying in this blog, as it is totally not my intention to give you a hard time with my english.
With that said, let me get to the topic at hand.

Anyways, this chapter served as a nice setup for what's to come next week in chapter 900. It feels good to see some refreshing faces in this chapter especially with Judge and the Sun Pirates.
We start off with the Big Mom Pirates panicking over Big Mom and what's to come with the consumption of the Wedding Cake. Perospero speculates on 3 consequences: 1. Big Mom eats the possible poisoned cake and dies which would end the Big Mom Pirates Empire. 2. Big Mom becomes immune to the poison and dislikes the taste thus continuing her rampage. 3. Big…Read more >
Halfway through this chapter, I was pretty worried it was just gonna be a boring exposition chapter. The Big Mom Pirates catch up on shit, stuff gets ready to go in motion.
But then stuff got in motion real fast. And it was captivating.
I don't care for the Vinsmoke boys. I don't really know of anyone who does. But they almost make up for their lack of character with some absolutely bitchin' action pieces. It was great to see Winch Green and Sparking Red in particular, Winch Green was good enough that I didn't even feel sad when my baby Yuen got pounded into the dirt.
I will say, though, this chapter didn't satisfy me in one aspect - Sanji. He does beat some guys up in the beginning, but as things unfolded all my hopes for him to unleash some…Read more >
