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 >
This chapter was definitely simpler than many that came before it, but it provided quite a bit of information we needed that was quite more groundbreaking than it looks.
Apparently we don't need to pull the Sugar Effect on Mont-d'Or, as it turns out burning the books works quite fine, though I am a bit appalled by how injured Luffy and Nami are. How far did the flames have to go? But anyways, the Sweet Escape has begun, because the Straw Hats definitely wanna get away. And speaking of getting away...
Pudding's DF becomes all for naught after Sanji tells Reiju what really happened, and her acceptance of it seems a bit contrived...until we find out what happens next. There's no frills to it, no enemy of my enemy is my friend mentality, they're…Read more >
I was going to create a blog that was about a significant topic but then I got lazy.
Title: The Darkest Hour
Chopper and Carrot continue to be pulled by Diesel through the mirror world
Chopper: Come on...wake up, Brulee!
Carrot: Do you think she's dead?
Chopper: *appalled* Of course not! We didn't damage her too much, did we? *Chopper shakes Brulee*
Carrot: Maybe this will help?
Carrot electrifies her glove and jabs it into Brulee's stomach. Brulee receives an electric shock and snaps awake, screaming from the pain.
Brulee: GYAAAA! Where am I?? Am I...in hell???
Chopper: Brulee! How do you get to the castle?
Brulee: Why should I tell YOU punks??
Very shortly afterwards, Carrot holds Brulee over a large pit off the edge of the road.
Brulee: All right, all rig…Read more >
