First of all, it’s nice that this arc finally confirms who Lola’s mother is. However, it is disappointing that Big Mom is not the loving mother that Lola thought she was. At least Big Mom’s vivre card was useful… in an unexpected way… while it lasted. Let’s hope that Nami will steal back the card later.
Second, Pudding displaying a sinister side was shocking. I guess there is more to Pudding than meets the eye. What is Sanji going to do next? Is he going to sweet talk Pudding like he did to Viola and say something about not doubting a woman’s tears?
Before jumping to conclusions, I would like to say it is possible that Pudding’s claim of Big Mom plotting to kill the Vinsmoke Family is a ruse to turn the family against Big Mom and she is acti…Read more >
After Big Mom was first mentioned, people have been guessing that Big Mom is Lola's mother. However, when I first saw Big Mom's personality during the Fishman Island Arc, I did not want to believe it. But it had to be true in the end.
Lola said that her mother would give the Straw Hats a helping hand if they need it. I guess she never expected that her mother would be the cause of their current predicament. And Big Mom learning about Lola's friendship with the Straw Hats isn't helping at all.
Now that Big Mom showed her low opinion on Lola, I do wonder how much Lola actually knew about her own mother. How would she feel if she heard that Big Mom was willing to let her father die? And what would she think if she heard what Big Mom just said a…Read more >
Franky: apparently, Luffy and his team quickly found a lot of trouble right after they arrived at Whole Cake Island.
Robin: should have known that the rescue operation wouldn’t have gone smoothly.
Zoro: If I had known that they’ll encounter a powerful swordsman, I would have gone with them. I can’t believe I passed up on an opportunity to face a worthy adversary.
Franky: I bet things at that forest would have been different had we’ve been there. A bunch of talking trees doesn’t sound so threatening to me.
Homie 1: Let’s get him!!!
The tree homies charge at Franky.
Franky: You don’t scare me! Franky Iron Boxing! (repels the attacking homies)
Homie 2: This one is strong!
Homie 3: Don’t worry! We can still overcome him with numbers! Press on the atta…

Yonji: hey Sanji
Yonji: your crew’s navigator sure is hot.
Niji: yeah, I can’t believe someone as worthless as you get to be around a girl so beautiful for all this time. Lucky bastard.
Ichiji: I’ve decided. I’m going to make her my bride.
Niji: No way! She’s going to be my personal maid!
Yonji: Hey! I want her all to myself!
Sanji clenches his fists.
Sanji: None of you is going to lay a finger on Nami-swan!
Ichiji, Niji, and Yonji: …………………
Ichiji: and who are you to presume that? Do you need a reminder on who’s the inferior one?
Niji: yeah. What are you going to do? Bark at us?
Yonji remains silent, thinking back to the time Sanji dented his face.
Sanji: if I were to allow Nami-swan to fall into the hands of scum such as you three, then I…Read more >
So, it is confirmed that Lola is one of Big Mom’s children after all. I guess this changes everything, or does it. Lola was confident that her mother would help the Straw Hats if they needed it. But this is Big Mom we’re talking about. I’m pretty sure you don’t need to be reminded that she’s a monster who would destroy a country for candy and we all saw that she has no qualms killing people just to gather ingredients for a wedding cake. Even Sanji’s father doesn’t think highly of her.
So here’s the big question: will the revelation about Lola being Big Mom’s daughter help Luffy’s team at all?
Is Big Mom really going to be indebted to Luffy for helping Lola at Thriller Bark? I will be surprised if it would be that easy. Lola did run away from…Read more >
