Heh, I remember the days when review blogs went out like hotcakes, and now here I'm writing one hours after I slept through my alarm, worororo.
I was legitimately wondering if Carmel's portrait wouldn't need to be broken after all, since Big Mom's reaction after the cake was destroyed looked pretty much identical to Bege's description of her reaction to the portrait breaking. I was definitely fearful for the life of ma boi, future crewmate, Streusen haha. I was also surprised that more people than just Luffy came outside, though of course Gangster Gastino is left behind, where he is forced to stand and reflect on his life choices.
Bege's facefault made the chapter for me. At that point, I thought nothing in the chapter could get better than …Read more >
These two weeks could not have been longer, but a chapter is out! And not a second is wasted either.
We start off with Luffy getting jostled around in his sleep, having about .13656 seconds to get up, get showered, get dressed, and attend the wedding. I hoped something like that would happen, and it was quite hilarious. We go out to the wedding venue, and then Katakuri foresees Bege moving to cut apart Carmel's picture before assassinating Big Mom, causing him to shoot him with a jellybean and end the plot right then and there. Then Law jumps in and Katakuri shoots Law.
Er, I was reading my spoiler manuscripts for a second. Oops. Instead, Katakuri sees Pudding collapsing before Sanji, and she does just that as he calls her third eye beautifu…Read more >
Yoshihisa Heishi is sound asleep in his luxurious bed. There's not a sound outside. But inside his mind, chaos has erupted. He hears words he cannot decipher. He hears the sounds of police sirens. Furious typing on a computer. Finally, in the jumbled mess of images in his mind, one comes to the forefront. He sees the head of a panda. And not just any panda...one with a rice hat on!
In a cold sweat, Mr. Heishi bolts upright. Sweating and hyperventilating, he reaches for the phone. A great, great evil was about to return, and he needed the greatest forces he had at his disposal.
Six hours later...
Luffy: Eh? Why'd you call me here?
Heishi: Because a great evil is returning...one that you likely know. You still remember the entity known as "Manga…Read more >
Finally, a chapter! Very text-heavy, but it's a good setup for the next stage of the plot, which is sure to be kick-ass.
The Sanji retrieval team finally, uh, retrieves Sanji, and they escape from Whole Cake Island, with him and the Poneglyphs in tow. They then head to Wano Country, where Kaido stands on the beach, holding Law's dead body.
...Oh wait, Sanji's gotta save his family. Dammit, I wanted to see dead Law!
I absolutely loved the recurring gag of the Sanji retrieval team considering Brulee and Diesel part of their group while the latter two tried their hardest to disclaim it. Once Jinbe dies those two will be the next nakamas, I'm calling it.
Finally, Jinbe offers a proposition to Luffy, for them to ally with Bege, who's surprise surpr…Read more >
I wake up early to read a chapter about sleep, ha ha thanks Oda.
The chapter starts off with Bobbin quickly recovering from the attack on him and using his abilities to put everyone to sleep before going after Sanji himself - I wonder what the full extent of his abilities are, because the ability to put anyone to sleep can get real overpowered real fast. Also, his bounty is revealed as an extremely strange 105,500,000, though I more enjoyed the tears of the salty fanboys who let their imaginations run wild with Bobbin over the past 200 chapters, thinking he was a Sweet Commander-level fighter. That's why you don't let your expectations rule the story, folks.
I'm also intrigued by Bobbin's actions being just another in a long line of efforts …Read more >
