This chapter was pretty much a wiki editor's wet dream and nightmare at the same time. So many new names for characters to get pages, some reappearances, abilities n shit, it's all cool. With the encyclopementries out of the way, let's review and discuss the chapter as best as I'm able to at 3 in the morning.
Luffy's and Katakuri's fight was a nice continuation from where it left off before. Luffy's on Katakuri's level now, and the two can trade blows like there's no tomorrow. And of course, Snakeman. The one and only form where Luffy concentrates all his power into his anaconda and stretches it infinitely like a Gomu Gomu no Culverin, because even though Katakuri said that anything Luffy can do he can do better, he probably has a baby weew…Read more >
When the forces of the Japanese government conspire to take on the scanlation power duo Jaimini's Box and Mangastream, new heroes shall rise in their place. We experienced the reign of terror of Z-Ani, and this time, the translation isn't quite so bad, but by no means is it good and it's even more fond of gratuitious swearing than Mangastream (though it does keep Katakuri's name, so in a way it's already better than MS). You can read it here; if you're morally opposed, you'll probably have to wait till tomorrow or Sunday. The future of illegal scanlations may never be the same.
Anyways, for those of you who were daring enough to read, let's talk about the chapter. Honestly, it surprised me if only because I was expecting for Big Mom to imme…Read more >
Charlotte Family 33rd daughter: Charlotte Flampe, 15 years old
Hello everybody and welcome to my chapter review blog. This week: the fight against Katakuri continues, some other stuff happens, and Pudding is, at most, 15 years old.
OK, maybe it's a mistake. At least, I hope it is. Though honestly, if Pudding isn't 15, then she's a good chance at 14, right? Rebecca was 16 and already had that voluptuous figure, after all. Maybe Three-Eyes age at a faster rate than normal humans. Ah, no matter how I break it down it just doesn't feel right. I guess we'll have to wait for the volume.
As for her..."big" sister Flampe, apparently there's also a species of people that can exhale helium. Big Mom should export her. Though reall…Read more >
...Or would I?
Yes, the traditional early chapter to close out the year is really early this time! And man, what a kick it was.
The thought of fighting Big Mom can at times seem absurd. But the combo performance the Straw Hats pulled off was really fun to watch. Everyone got in on the action, and with Big Mom being a Devil Fruit user in the middle of the ocean, there's a lot to take advantage of, especially when she's on your turf. The star was definitely Jinbe, who pretty much pulled a Finn from The Last Jedi (spoilers) and came back with watery vengeance. Even while she looked weakened, Big Mom still impressed too, easily overpowering him in strength and looking consistently fearsome while raiding for food. Napoleon is ridiculous.

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 >
