Well, we got a new Gear 4th form, but we get a short chapter with little to no dialogue. Even with a quick chapter, the action should be fun when animated.
As for Luffy's Snakeman form, it's what I expect it to be - thin, long, more movement, and most importantly, it's the basis for Luffy's speed attacks which is what he needs to counter Katakuri's Observation Haki abilities. While we saw these new moves, Katakuri decided that he wants to be a doughnut and unleashes his ultimate move, Spiked Mochi in which his arm turns into a giant mace. The chapter ends with the two making one last explosive clash. Who won? Will we see the result next time? Well guess what, Oda adds insult to injury by making us wait through another break. The way…Read more >
Back for another chapter as we completely focus on Luffy vs. Katakuri this time. I'm quite surprised that the cake eating will be delayed for another chapter, so maybe, this chapter is taking place at the same time as the events of the previous chapter.
We start off the chapter by confirming that Luffy DID get hit by Katakuri's last attack and that it wasn't a vision from CoO. Katakuri becomes disappointed with Luffy while Flampe and her men laugh at the defenseless Luffy. While getting kicked around like a "newborn fawn" Luffy remembers about Rayleigh teaching Luffy about using CoO while being unconscious. After Luffy gets up, we see Flampe's bitchy side as she hopes to impress Katakuri by firing a dart at Luffy. After Luffy dodges i…Read more >
Well well well, looks like we have one more chapter left for 2017, but the official release is on January 1st back in Japan, so it's unlikely we should include the chapter in our Best and Worst of 2017.
Nothing much to say about 890 since it's just a Final Fantasy-ish battle between the Straw Hats and Big Mom.
We start off with Big Mom tearing apart the Thousand Sunny looking for the Wedding Cake. She remembered Perospero's promise that the cake would be on the ship even though Jinbe is telling her the truth. We see Jinbe clash with Big Mom's flaming sword attack with Haki, and while it's impressive, Jinbe is still pushed into the sea.
Nami tries to plea with Big Mom since Carrot is resting and Brook notices that the sails are starting to…Read more >
Well folks, we have been given the final chapter of 2017 (even if we get a chapter next week, it would come out on January 1, 2018, but it's unlikely), and we had a fun year.
As expected, we get a new cover story with Leo and I can't wait to see what Leo and the Dwarves will do as pirates.
We start off with Sulong Carrot still kicking ass, but the pros have to come with cons. Jinbe, the Mink Expert, informs the Straw Hats that Sulong Minks will tap into their primal instincts and go wild. While this makes them strong, it quickly drains a Mink's stamina and could possibly make them die of exhaustion. We see Daifuku use his genie against Carrot, and even though Carrot is still doing her job, Brook has to come to the rescue.
Elsewhere, Sanj…Read more >

Well, we're about to enter a break and we enter it on a high note especially when this chapter could be a last second contender for Chapter of the Year (doubt it will win).
First off, we have another rematch between Luffy and Katakuri and I like how Luffy disregarded Katakuri's options of dying or joining his crew. Let's see if Luffy can get the job done this time.
Back at the seas where the BM Fleet is firing a bunch of Bullet Bills at the Thousand Sunny and have the SHs surrounded. However, due to the entire chase, Big Mom has lost a bunch of weight and whether or not this is a good or bad thing for BM is yet to be seen, so we'll have to debate on giving her the cake.
Finally, ent…Read more >
