Well, the backstory ends. We finally know the full truth about Sanji's childhood.
And to be honest, it wasn't bad. Some parts were predictable - the "you'll find people like you" speech again was a nice callback - while some parts weren't. Like Judge acknowledging that he can't bring himself to kill his own son, even after he's cast him out. Looks like the old man has some emotion left after all.
Also, I know we all saw that the Vinsmokes chill out on giant snails that may or may not be related to Den Den Mushi, but that's one hell of a way to cross the Red Line. Also, this literally just hit me, but is it ironic that Sanji (the pseudo Frenchman) comes from a family that lives on giant snails? Or is that just coincidence?
Oh, and Sanji's moth…

Well that was one hell of a chapter. Where do I start?
Runt of the litter, beaten up by his siblings and scorned by his father. Even locked up and forced to wear an iron mask - I can't tell if this was a deliberate reference to Eustache Dauger, but I do see that Duval fits in nicely - it's no wonder he made a break for it. But hard times make hard men, and it doesn't look like any of the rest of them went through as hard times as he did...
The technology of Germa seems to be pretty advanced, although if it's a replacement for lack of Haki as I seemed to understand that does take away a bit of it. Franky is going to love this place, and I can already see that electric shock attack not working on Luffy. As for that particular medical procedure…Read more >
So it's come to my attention that a lot of people don't actually know how to start, participate, and conclude talk pages. Whether it's as simple as not signing a post to just repeating "I already told you", it can be hard to follow a discussion these days, let alone reach a conclusion.
With this in mind, I have decided to make an utterly unofficial blog - yes this one - detailing how I believe people should act on talk pages.
When you make a new topic for discussion, remember to actually separate it into a new topic. This saves the next person to come across the discussion the time it takes to do this, and it helps people to take you seriously. Simply adding something along the lines of "Character X was in this chapter" at the end of a discuss…

Infodump ahoy! Anyone receiving?
Weekly expectations here, infodump, what are you carrying?
Not much this time, expectations, just some stuff about Pudding liking Sanji and Big Mom having a really big family.
Well, it'll have to do, let's start unloading.
Ok, so Pudding has met Sanji, thinks he's hot shit, wants to bang him. but he said no.
Wait, wait, Sanji said no to a woman? And a fairly hot one? And one who cooks?
Oh and one of Big Mom's daughters went wandering about to find true love or something, we're all 99% sure it's Lola.
But haven't people been predicting that literally since the end of Thriller Bark?
Yup, they have, but once again the fan theories are probably going to be right.
What about Pekoms? Is he still there?
No, he's go…Read more >
So what with Sanji having some childhood history and so forth, I wondered what it might be like if the rest of the crew got backstories out of nowhere that make no sense at all. Bear in mind that this is in no way serious and is the result of cider. So here goes.
Luffy So Dragon knocked up a rice cracker maker and Garp only found out about it after the kid was like 5. Every time he eats crackers he's remembering he has a grandson.
Zoro Cast out on the mountainside by the Spartans for having green hair, the young baby was driven by an instinctive need to become the strongest warrior ever. Kept forgetting which side to hold the shield on so gave up and used two swords instead.
Nami Nami was a baby princess abandoned on a battlefield as her parents …
