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! …

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 >
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. Bege has been underestimating Big Mom and now the alliance is going to have to suffer for it. Unless Bege’s fortress has powerful defenses, the alliance will still be sitting ducks unless Bege could fly away.
While things look grim, it may not be completely hopeless. Right now, Luffy and Bege’s best chance to get out of this predicament would be to join forces with Germa 66. Hopefully, Judge can summon his army…Read more >
Other than the Big Mom assassination operation, another thing I would like to discuss is what the Vinsmoke Family is going to do next. I am curious on how Ichiji, Niji, and Yonji are going to respond to Sanji rescuing them. Even though they have no emotions, I’m sure they have their pride and they’ll probably say something like they rather die at Big Mom’s hands than be indebted to the “failure” of the family. Judge would probably take a moment to process all that’s happened, considering that not only all his efforts in searching for Sanji and blackmailing him into the marriage were all for nothing, but he also ended up being saved by the very son he disowned.
Assuming that the Charlotte Family and the Big Mom Pirates will still be incapaci…Read more >
As expected, not everything in Bege’s plan went exactly as planned. I can’t say I’m surprised that there were some complications. One of those complications is in the form of Katakuri and Big Mom did not start screaming earlier because Luffy went overboard by ruining the wedding cake. Despite some setbacks, the Retrieval Team-Fire Tank Alliance successfully reached the critical point of the Big Mom assassination operation and Bege, Vito, and Gotty are about to fire their KX Launchers at Big Mom. However, I have an uneasy feeling that it’s not going to end the way Bege hoped it would.
Here are the possible ways that Bege’s plan could still go downhill:
- Katakuri uses his mochi powers to create earplugs for himself and stop Bege, Vito, and Gott…
