Twelve weeks to 2018 and if I remember correctly (damn you Pudding!) we were promised Reverie Arc and Wano Arc in 2017.
Twelve weeks to 2018, shortest arcs are five chapters long (Loguetown, Reverse Mountain, and Return to Sabaody), at least one to call it "the beginning of Wano Arc", and a break this week. Simple math tells us there are five more chapters to WCI, so during this "no chapter week", what do you think each of those five chapters will entail?
Here's my thought:
- Luffy fight against cracker (hopefully new gear 4 form\gear 5), exhausted Luffy surrounded by BMP, grubs Brûlée and jump through a mirror and brakes it on the way, Perospero tells Big Mom the cake was washed ashore Cacao Island, the cake is finished and the cooks try to find a wa…
These days I read a lot about 3 three ancient weapons that are used by ancient kingdom. We know that the POSEIDON Shirahose ii speculated that the Uranus momonoske. As we know for Pluto we first heard in Alabasti when it is requested Crocodail pluton is mentioned in the water seven when Frankie burned the blueprints for making Pluto. This theory will be based on the theme of Pluto as a board but the same case as POSEIDON and URANUS (one is safe and possible for the second). Is it possible that the ECHI Oda from the start reserved a place for Pluton and that we were not aware of that. To go to the very essence of what I mean! What if Plutom IS Luffy (to be more precise on and its effect on the world this can be even refer to the very crew of S…Read more >
Hmm, I don't have too much to say about this chapter, but goddamn Jinbe. Way to fill your new role in the crew. This probably has to be the most magnificent thing a new crew member has done to display their talent in a role. Welcome to the crew, Jinbe.
Otherwise, I thought this was kind of a meh chapter. Luffy had to wrap up some loose ends with the crew after he went into Mirro-World and that was pretty much the end of it. I was surprised by the crew saying it would take them 10 hours to get to Whole Cake Island - I mean, it makes sense given how long it took them before, but it throws a wrench into Sanji's whole plot. Can't wait to see what trials and obstacles lie in store. And of course, it's time for Luffy vs. Katakuri to get serious -…Read more >
So in the latest chapter. Jimbei is an amazing helmsman.
What if Carrot joins the Strawhat also? What do you think her role will be?

Since the end of Punk Hazard this thought keeps crossing my mind every time chopper is shown: "Is he falling behind?" During Fishman Island the reveal of his power up was interesting and exciting and during Punk Hazard he saw more of his growth as doctor. But after that he seems to have reached a stalemate while the rest of the crew are still showing new stuff:
- Luffy showed his Gear Fourth and expected to show more forms.
- Zoro his Busoushoku Kouka.
- Nami has shown to skillfully use the weather itself for attacks.
- Usopp showed amazing marksmanship and all kinds of new pop green. Even developed Kenbunshoku Haki.
- Sanji is still showing his growth as a fighter and cook.
- Robin her reflexes (stopping Hakuba).
- Franky has his ever expending…
Tired as all hell right now so this will be pretty brief.
Good to finally see the cooking crew get started on making the cake. Hopefully we get to see some dynamic cooking going on; it's great to see Sanji in his element performing at 110%. I wonder what his secret ingredient is...
The fact that the cake is going to take three hours to build sheds quite a bit of light on just how bad of a situation the Straw Hats are currently in. Luffy can't use Gear Fourth unless he develops a game plan that guarantees Katakuri's defeat, and the others...well, it isn't so much about surviving for 3 hours as it is surviving right now! They do have a few options regarding this huge ass fucking wave:
- Brook! Guy has had dominant performances against homies and …
OK, I already know wht you're thinking. "There's no way Jinbe would become 1st Mate or Vice Captain!!! THAT'S ZORO'S POSITION!!!!!!!"
Yea yea yea, but hear me out. (Before I begin, I want to say that I love Zoro. He's definately one of my favorite characters, but I'm putting my faandom aside and thinking about this logically.)
Firstly, Zoro was never officially given that role. His official role on the crew is "Swordsman". Which means the position is open. Zoro has been compared to a 1st mate and has been mistaken as a 1st mate, but he was never given the position officially. But ask yourself, Who fits the role better? The job of the 1st Mate is to lead the crew in the captains absence. To take command if need be and also advise the Captain …Read more >
First off, let me say that I hope releasing on Friday doesn't become a regular thing. I liked the release days being Wednesday/Thursday because they're otherwise hohum days, but Friday is...well, Friday.
Uholisia/however you spell her name giving Sai an epic beatdown was HILARIOUS. Betting Sai will have to face Chichilisia in a fight to the death or something now.
The speech Jinbe gave about Pedro's sacrifice was exceptional and very much needed. He already fits in perfectly with the crew. And honestly...each week I'm saving up more money to buy a ticket for the death train. I really don't see what good Pedro surviving would accomplish - remember how both Pell AND Igaram suddenly came back to life at the end of Alabasta? Yeah, that was stupi…Read more >
Profiles of the One Piece universe main and recurring antagonists.
The first antagonist in the Romance Dawn Arc and the series. The leader of a group of bandits who mocked Shanks. After Luffy tried to defend his friend, Higuma kidnapped him and took him to the sea, where he was finally devoured by a sea monster.
One of the main antagonists in the Romance Dawn Arc, and one of the major antagonists in the Loguetown Arc. The captain of the Alvida Pirates, who had Coby under his orders, until she was defeated by Luffy. Later, she ate the Sube Sube no Mi and formed an alliance with Buggy to take revenge on Luffy, and they set out for Grand Line after him. Currently she is a member of Buggy's Delivery. Currently has a bounty of 5,00…

First, I think all of you guessed in this blog I’ll be telling a theory of my own about Smoothie will become the leader of the Big Mom Pirates. And of course I’m hoping to discuss my idea with you all.
To start my idea, I want to summarize what we all know about Sweet Commander Charlotte Smoothie. As a Sweet Commander she’s one of the three highest ranking member of the crew and has the greatest amont of authority among the crew. (After Big Mom, of course.) Smoothie has a bounty of over 900 million and an unknown, probably paramecia type devil fruit. But as some of you already stated that until now she’s underwhelming. To be honest I also expected so much more from Smoothie, but looks like she’s not gonna activate herself.
Now I think you al…Read more >
The fact that a five-year old Linlin was able to devastate an Elbaf village so easily made me question how great the giants are supposed to be.
Chiffon stated that the army of Elbaf is supposed to be the strongest, but let’s picture a scenario where a Yonko’s crew battles against an army of Elbaf giants. Surely, the giants can deal with the low-rank grunts, which would leave the captain and those high in the crew’s hierarchy (such as the ministers and the Sweet Commanders of the Big Mom Pirates or the Three Disasters of the Beasts Pirates) as the legitimate threat. We already saw powerful humans who could take down giants like nothing. Whitebeard took down Ronse and then John Giant. Luffy defeated a Marine giant with just one Gear Third pun…Read more >

Man. Let me just go ahead and say, this was the best chapter I've read in a while, and one of my favorite chapters of the entire arc.
It was really nice to see Pedro get more flashback; I'd have liked to see much more of him across the arc but I enjoyed how his story has tied in with the story of Zou as a whole. I miss the rest of the minks...also, it was neat to see Carrot emotional, we've usually only seen one emotion from her and her reaction was appropriate.
Honestly, I wasn't too surprised to see Perospero survive. He is supposed to be pretty strong, after all. Jury's still out on Pedro though. And man, Katakuri's displayed enough badassery for two Sweet Commanders (that moment when Oda doesn't even make the effort to insert Smoothie in…Read more >
Wow, I must say this chapter was really tense and started off the post-break streak in a very strong way.
We start off with a quick flashback-within-a-flashback which reveals some of Pedro's childhood when he witnessed the Minks travelling with the Roger Pirates and it's so nice to see Gol D. Roger himself too. We also see a young Wanda as well as Pedro's downfall when he had his 50 years taken away from him.
Unlike Pell, there is now a good chance that Pedro is dead considering that Perospero survived the explosion albeit he has one arm now. While the Straw Hats mourn Pedro and readies the Coup-De-Burst, Carrot foolishly attacks Katakuri only for her puffy tail ass to be kicked. If Carrot were to join the Straw Hats, then she now has a…

As of recent I have been thinking more and more about the theory Kuina is alive.
Now I know many disagree and say she is outright dead, but this is just a series of ideas and theories that I think would work well, and may possibly happen.
1. Kuina and Tashigi are one in the same. Now while I do see this being unlikely I went around and had a look at various videos of people like Tekking 101 and The Legend Mac, and while some agree with this theory I couldn't bite their reason that she one just ran away and joined marines, but the biggest problem was that she is considerably weaker than how I could visualise Kuina.
A thought I had though that could fit this story is that she did fall down the stairs and fell into a coma or brain injury, and af…

Now as many of us are hyped about Wano there is yet another arc coming that has a similar mystery and heir. The Reverie arc is going to be massive in setting a precedence and setting for future events, and I see this being set into motion by the biggest mystery organisation The Revolutionary Army.
Dragon, and Sabo a former noble are perfect to cause mayhem and panic at the Reverie, now while this is just a theory I do have some reasons to speculate this
1. We have not seen much of Dragon and his powers, and now would be a great time to see and understand how strong he is in regards to admirals yonkos as such
2. For his organisation The Revolutionary Army the Reverie would be the perfect time for Dragon get a win over the world government along…Read more >
I am a long time One piece fan. Recently I have had some thoughts on Zoro and possible new powers history and swords along with possible battles in wano. I made a YT video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLi_bByRWEg but didn't feel I got it across clear enough.
1. New powers: After the 2 year timeskip we have not seen Zoro use many new moves or techniques, the most noticeable though is his use of bushoku haki and ranged slashes with higher pound ho levels. In saying this though he hasn't been pushed to the limit with either of these so it makes me think he is holding back another form/ moves and I believe they correlate with his demon aura like ashura. His Ashura while powerful opened up to a tonne of new powerful moves possible by him, and p…Read more >
I enjoyed this chapter very much. We had three chapters in a row of running away and setting up the cake plan, so for this chapter to focus pretty much entirely on battle was very enjoyable.
A lot of it seemed rushed on my first readthrough, but reading it again I began to enjoy the time and attention put into everything currently going after the Straw Hats. We got reminded that Big Mom was there, but didn't have too much focus on her as we got to see more new people. Perospero kicked utter ass as we finally got to see his candyfication in action - honestly, this guy deserves to be a Sweet Commander much more than Smoothie does. He even overpowered Pedro in combat! Katakuri did pretty well to boot, showcasing his pretty weird DF abilities a…Read more >
So... Ever noticed how very different the models of the characters can be in the games?
So I have Grand Adventure on the PS2 and Pirate Warriors 3 on Steam. Can't help but notice how very different models in games can be. Typically, I'll take Shanks as an example.
Now Shanks is a weird character for Oda to draw. In some instances he is handsome and in another frame he can be a little strange looking. Generally most of the video games tend to struggle with matching his face to the artwork for this reason. The proportions of his facial features in the video games (and in some models) tends to be a lot more different then with characters like Whitebeard, Luffy, etc. In one game series his chin can be narrower, in another his forehead wider,…Read more >
Thanks to Mangastream and their...interesting word stretching for my chapter blog title.
Overall? A lot of this chapter was just stuff falling into place for the conclusion I inevitably knew was going to happen because I've been hearing about it all the time for the past few months. So this was a bit boring, but still pretty necessary.
Pudding. On my first readthrough, I didn't have much of a patience for her antics, but as I read the chapter more in depth while writing the long summary, I began to get a bit of appreciation for her wild behaviors. I'm enjoying how legitimately conflicted she is, rather than just pulling a 180 after Sanji called her eye beautiful. Also, it was cool seeing her memory power again for the second time! Hopefully …Read more >
Here is how I image Bartolomeo meeting Shanks.
Somewhere on an island in the New World, Shanks and his crew are just chilling and drinking sake as they usually do.
However, a member of the Red Hair Pirates receives word of what is going on in one of their territories and reports to Shanks.
Red Hair Pirate member: Captain! I have some urgent news to report!
Shanks: (sighs) what is it now? Can’t you see I want to drink some more?
Red Hair Pirate member: There’s a pirate crew causing trouble on one of our islands! And get this! They even burned down our flag!
The other Red Hair Pirates are alarmed at the news.
Benn Beckman: wow, I’m not sure if they’re bold or just plain stupid.
Rockstar: The nerve of them! How dare they disrespect Shanks like that! …

When I saw the title "A Woman's Honor", I was a bit worried at first that Oda was going to do something a bit sexist...but it actually ended up being pretty great! We haven't seen much of Chiffon throughout the arc, and I'm looking forward to having her directly help the Straw Hats and possibly confront Big Mom.
This was a bit of a slow, naturally paced chapter as we basically had one continuous event instead of skipping between them. It was cool to see Prometheus get some solo action again, and to have Luffy and Jinbe get the chance to try their hand against sun boy. Then of course, there was Nami manipulating an eggstatic Zeus, which continued to be funny but thankfully got a big conclusion this chapter with a massive lightning bolt. Whil…Read more >
Hello denizens of the wiki (and Pau). This is a sequel to this blog, and you might say sequels are never as good as the original, to which I reply
But alas, times back then were simpler, and the way of image posting life people once knew has ceased to exist. But fear not, I come to tout the solution we still have!
Why is this necessary? Well, our evil tyrant admins decided one day that only certain types of images can be uploaded on this wiki. Images from One Piece, that have to be used in productive wiki articles (the horror). So you can't upload things just for your user page, or your blog post, you know, the important stuff. However, thanks to the wonders of the internet, there is a way to make images appear just by linking them, as I've …Read more >

Since we have a song series with Japanese prefectures, how about a series with world countries? Here are a few thoughts of mine (aside from the Straw Hats)
- Charlotte Linlin - Germany (Sweets, Grimm's Fairy Tales)
- Hannyabal, Chaka & Pell, Vivi - Egypt (Egyptian gods)
- Diamante, Doflamingo, Viola - Spain
- Crocodile, Capone Bege - Italy (mafia)
If anyone else has any ideas, please share them.Read more >
This has been an interesting week. A delayed chapter and no Kaido to do his usual review blog because he's out in the woods preparing for the Hunger Games. Without further adieu, let's get to it.
We see Big Mom still going crazy trying to attack the Straw Hats. Poor King Baum is being used as a punching bag. After suffering a fatal strike from Napoleon, Nami reassures him that he will live, only for him to get set ablaze shortly after. Then we had Nami winning over Zeus with her lightning as some had predicted. Meanwhile with the Big Mom Pirates, Brulee has an army in the mirror world ready to attack at anytime. And there's a mirror still on the Sunny... To make matters worse Katakuri is already on the Sunny waiting for the …Read more >

Wait an extremely long blog out of the blue form the extremely long gone OPN. Yeah you see it right, Christmas has come early, for some people my return as just a blogger on this site will be a terrible Christmas, but that says more about them then me. Since it has nearly been five years since I was any kind of active here and a lot has changed and happened in those five years and I now just want to get my theories out there especially this one that is the second of my 35 strawhat related theories and which took me 9 and a halve hours to make.

Hi... My first Blog, so I'll go straight to the point.
As over the course of the last three years several Shonen series -both from Jump and other magazines alike- have reached its conclusions -like Naruto, Bleach, or Fairy Tail-, and given that One Piece may and will last for longer than all of these (Oda said in an interview in 2014 his work may last another decade, so doing the mathematics, there are like 6-7 years more to go). My question is, are there still any newcomers who can give One Piece a good fight?
Why do I ask this, you may wonder? Well... since the word "Competition" was made relevant in any given media, contendors in both ends, be it leaders, imitators, or just new contenders, tried to outdo each other -and in the process, ou…Read more >

So they finally announced it, they are going to bring in a One Piece live action television series on TV with a guy who worked as a producer on Prison Break involved in the project. Well will this series get a Game of Thornes treatment? Will it follow the original story? Will it be popular like Games of Thrones? Even Oda is excited by this news. However this is not going to be in Japanese, this is going to be made here in America, made by tomorrow studios.
Just imagine if this ever happened, this wiki is going to explode, we are going to end up covering t…Read more >
Welp, as we celebrate OP's 20th Anniversary, we were in for a treat with some fanbase dividing news. The boys in Hollywood have allowed the executive producers of FOX's Prison Break (check that show out) to make a live action adaption of One Piece. [OP Fans Booing Intensifies!]
Now, looking back at live action versions of anime in the past, the track record is not that great. Dragon Ball Evolution and Avatar: The Last Airbender were big bombs at the box office and Rotten Tomatoes, Ghost In The Shell was mediocre despite all the whitewashing controversies, and fans are pissed off that L is black and Light is Disneyfied in Netflix's adaption of D…Read more >
Why you have to make me excited right before a hiatus, Odacchi? And to put another hiatus in three weeks to boot...if you see a news story about some guy raging through Japan looking for a chapter, that'll probably be me.
Overall, lots of exciting plot developments here, and my favorite out of all of them is probably King Baum's resurrection. Just when we were done putting Caesar through hilarious tasks, here comes the other whipping boy. I'm liking this brand of humor a lot, it hasn't gotten old so far. Damn, Baum is a player. Also, Opera dies, which is pretty much his just desserts - no complaints from me here.
And that's not to mention Pudding! Just when I feared she would forever fade into irrelevance, here she comes with a deliciously e…Read more >

So, we already know the names of the Four Emperor's/Yonko's who rule over the new world , they are Shanks , Charlotte Linlin , Kaido and Marshal D. Teach . Now I am going to mention the names of the characters who have the caliber to beat a Yonko.

We all have learned that the Marines under Sakazuki have been pretty busy with conscription after the Battle of Marineford among other aggressive things. However, I can't help but wonder what Kuzan and Borsalino would do if either of them succeeded Sengoku instead. I honestly can't tell how much of an effect either of them would have on the Navy as a whole, but I am admittedly not confident that they would immediately rise up to the level of responsibility being Fleet Admiral entails. At least not at first.
Take your time in thinking this line of thought over. And please take it seriously.Read more >
I wanna get away, get away...
Lots of things from the past rearing their heads as the alliance prepares to make their escape this chapter. First, the Tamatebako. We got a recap of when it first popped up, and let me just say again, I wasn't expecting it to be used in that way at all. Though considering the magnitude of the explosion, I guess that was the best case scenario hahaha).
So the Straw Hats fly away, and the Big Mom Pirates fall...could this be the end? Wait! Here come Streusen's flashback powers to the rescue! We get some details about it, such as its food not tasting very good...and here comes Big Mom's food cravings again. I enjoyed how Oda utilized these plot elements from earlier in the wedding to keep things flowing smoothly, …Read more >
After looking at the cover page for Chapter 872, I felt like giving each Straw Hat germa names. Here are my names for each of them.
Elastic Red Luffy
Sharp Green Zoro
Weather Orange Nami
Star Yellow Usopp (the “star” is a word that Usopp uses in his usual attack names)
Blaze Blue Sanji (the “blaze” is referring to the fire from his Diable Jambe)
Cotton Pink Chopper
Petal Violet Robin (as in flower petals)
Battle Tank Sky Blue Franky
Skull Black BrookRead more >
I have to say that it was a pretty good chapter with a bit of action and a lovely plot twist. Oda is clearly putting a lot of thought into this arc.... Like Bartolomeo selling out Straw Hat products.
The chapter continues from the point where Caesar carries Bege in an attempt to escape from this Totland hell, but the Big Mom pirates have been proved to be way to big of an obstacle for this plan to succeed.
Thankfully Luffy, Sanji and the Vinsmoke family are there to assist Caesar while putting their lives into great danger. We even got to see a little Vinsmoke brother combo the Black Bug (seriously someone give Oda the attack naming award of the year).
At the same time a greedy Du Feld is trying to get his hands on the Tam…Read more >

Kind of disappointed to have to wait 2 weeks for a slower-paced chapter, but this was definitely a needed change in pace and it had some nice moments.
The biggest standout scene was, of course, Judge confronting Sanji over their rescue. A lot of Sanji's initial resolve to save his family felt kind of weird, as it was based pretty much entirely on his "empathy" that Reiju had sold so hard earlier. For Sanji to give an in-depth explanation regarding Zeff, and how he felt about his father and the man who sired him, putting Judge in his place, that was great to see. Plus, it takes care of the Vinsmokes' threat on the Baratie. Well done, Sanji. Though wait, there's more...

The Saga of the Straw Hat Grand Fleet, Bartolomeo Arc: Have you heard about our lord and savior, Monkey D. Luffy?
Big Mom stands in front of Bege, focused and enraged.
Big Mom: BEGE! You attempted to kill me...you helped break the portrait of mother...you destroyed my cake! Your actions are unforgivable and deserve worse than death!

One Piece, while featuring a lot of battles, never goes out of its way to match up every character it can to duke them out. Thus, we're left with questions as to what would happen if two characters duked it out. In this blog, I'm going to create several matchups between characters, and you get to vote on who would win!
Feel free to create more battle polls in the comments, but please, no power level discussions, as that's against the rules and will result in you having to pay your fine or serve your sentence :)Read more >
Over the course of these past two arcs, a few plot points have been set up that interest me greatly, but don't seem to have been discussed much on the wiki.
The "Magic Wand"- The one part of Nami's previous Clima-Tact that Usopp couldn't integrate into the new one. I can see two ways that this could become relevant; a. The absence of the wand negatively impacts Nami's ability to fight, or b. It somehow ends up being useful to Usopp and the Wano team. So far, its absence doesn't seem to have affected the Clima-Tact's performance, but with a big battle on the way, that could soon change. On the second point, I have a theory. Since Usopp, gadgeteer extraordinaire, couldn't figure out how the wand works, I wondered if Franky might be able to do…Read more >
It's been a while since I've been free to do one of these chapter reviews, but annual leave has coincided with a Thursday, so here goes:
Well, Big Mom has snapped out of it. Maybe. She's too angry to really tell, but the good news is that she's stopped screaming for the first time in over a month. The anime is going to have to hire someone with very strong lungs to cope with that.
The bad news is that there's not an obvious way out of this one for our heroes. Even after their big flashy transformation scene, a nice look into the camera shot, some individual attacks - they're toast, and the pirates are probably screwed as well.
Brulee was taken back as well, so there's no ex machina likely to happen with her - unless someone was hiding inside …

This blog is going to cover two different topics because I don't feel like writing two separate blogs. The first has to do with Big Mom, the second has to do with the current situation in the story.
The most intriguing part of chapter 868 is that Charlotte Linlin somehow acquired Carmel's Soul Soul power. She did not acquire the power through conventional means. We know this based on Streusen's reaction to her sudden ability to give things souls, as well as her own surprise, and most importantly, being seemingly completely ignorant of Devil Fruit powers at the time. She called the ability a trick and then said she could do it too now. Most of you have probably figured out what I'm getting at by now, especially if you read Attack On Titan, b…

I would like to propose the theory that Monkey D. Dragon is a wind logia. The first point I want to address is when Dragon confronts Smoker in Loguetown. The weather condition present at Loguetown resembles the characteristics of a hurricane. If Dragon were able to control the winds then he would be able to dictate the direction of warm and cold fronts. When those two fronts merge together they may form a cumulonimbus cloud and produce tornadoes and lightning.
When Dragon saves Luffy by grabbing onto the hilt of Smoker's sword, the hilt seems to go right through his left palm (Not sure if it was intentional or if there was a mistake)
The tattoo on Dragon's face are in the shape of diamonds. According to this website on Native American symbo…Read more >
In stating the obvious, Bege’s assassination attempt was a complete failure. If they only had 3 KX Launchers, then it’s safe to assume that the KX Launcher plan is a complete bust. It wasn’t smart of Bege to use all three of them at once. He should only start with one to see how it goes. It pains me to say this, but Pekoms was right.

And of course, the main story. The Straw Hats are in mortal panel, but it's still so funny! The facefaults from the Firetanks, Caesar, and the Straw Hats all make this chapter really worthwhile. Big Mom nullifying the weapons and breaking the mirror was to be expected, but the reactions to this made this chapter worth it. Any chance to see my bois Bege and Caesar stretch their face muscles is precious.
In a weird twist of fate, minor charac…Read more >
