With this chapter focusing on Nuts Island and cream, I'm sure you can imagine all the sex jokes that might be flying through my head right now. But this is No Nut November, so I will stay chaste, wait till marriage, all that Christian stuff. Big Mom seems to be a pretty big adherent to it as well, considering that she's trying to destroy Nuts Island. Yeah, she's acting a bit nuts herself, between the sex jokes and the bad puns I feel like a 12 year old again.
It looks like it'll take more than just breaking Katakuri's cool to defeat him, but to just stay alive Luffy has to activate Gear Fourth. I figured that he was saving it earlier in the fight because he'd be powerless once it ran out, but it seems that Luffy can voluntarily deactivate G…Read more >
Well, that was definitely an unexpected chapter. Overall nothing revolutionary, with the exception of a very important revolution about Katakuri's power.
Katakuri's weakness in terms of his Haki wasn't too surprising, but what was surprising was how his Haki works with his Devil Fruit power. I was starting to wonder if Oda would just gloss over him acting like a Logia those few times, but no, he had a plan for that! At least, somewhat. How does his body transformation work exactly? Can Luffy achieve a similar result by making a part of his body pure rubber? I'm interested to see what Oda does with this combination in the future. Also, Luffy gets thrashed around in Gear Fourth! Looking forward to what he does next.
I wasn't expecting to see e…Read more >
A chapter is finally out! What year is it??
Brulee idolizing Katakuri is super hilarious, we've seen some nastier ends of the sibling dynamic so it's cool to see ridiculous stuff like this on the other end of the spectrum. Katakuri responded to it nicely telling Brulee to shut up and going on to espouse the ideal of Doflamingo and Law - if you're weak, you don't get to decide your fate. It's a nice little theme among power wielders in the New World.
And to no one's surprise, Katakuri is awakened, but it seems just like Doflamingo's awakening where he can turn his surroundings into mochi. Well that doesn't help lol, we still have no answer to why he's all intangible. In due time...maybe... :^)
Tamago/Niwatori is one wise chicken. The Big Mom P…Read more >
Hmm, I don't have too much to say about this chapter, but goddamn Jinbe. Way to fill your new role in the crew. This probably has to be the most magnificent thing a new crew member has done to display their talent in a role. Welcome to the crew, Jinbe.
Otherwise, I thought this was kind of a meh chapter. Luffy had to wrap up some loose ends with the crew after he went into Mirro-World and that was pretty much the end of it. I was surprised by the crew saying it would take them 10 hours to get to Whole Cake Island - I mean, it makes sense given how long it took them before, but it throws a wrench into Sanji's whole plot. Can't wait to see what trials and obstacles lie in store. And of course, it's time for Luffy vs. Katakuri to get serious -…Read more >
Tired as all hell right now so this will be pretty brief.
Good to finally see the cooking crew get started on making the cake. Hopefully we get to see some dynamic cooking going on; it's great to see Sanji in his element performing at 110%. I wonder what his secret ingredient is...
The fact that the cake is going to take three hours to build sheds quite a bit of light on just how bad of a situation the Straw Hats are currently in. Luffy can't use Gear Fourth unless he develops a game plan that guarantees Katakuri's defeat, and the others...well, it isn't so much about surviving for 3 hours as it is surviving right now! They do have a few options regarding this huge ass fucking wave:
- Brook! Guy has had dominant performances against homies and …
