I'm ever so slightly disappointed with this chapter because the lack of Doffy's eyes but I mean when you get a chapter like this you can't complain.

I ended up crying (again, since right now I'm watching the "nakama ga iru yo" part of the anime and manga) as I felt such a relief that Doflamingo's birdcage and with that even the real "Birdcage" that has been enclosing Dressrosa all along. I love how Gatz adresses once more the whole "metaphor" of the birdcage (if you don't know what it is, go search it yourself, that's the beauty of it) connected to the real world criticism that Oda does.

I mostly cried because I live One Piece very personally and to me it really felt like the birdcage ended. Not just for the people suffering right there but also for the people who have suffered, some without knowing, during all these years...

Also Kyros smiled :O But it was nice to see him cry. I love how he cries in secret, because he's too ashamed.

For a huge fan like me there's no point in rating a chapter because I mostly love all of One Piece. I'm like the perfect core demographic for the series so I love everything I get, even if it wasn't what I was expecting.

It's perfectly fine if you don't love One Piece as much as I do and you have things that don't interest you, just keep in mind every weekly chapter can't exactly "satisfy" you, if not the whole story would be compromised and ruined because of this.

Also Doffy without glasses using his manga eye:
