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 >
So this past Saturday I watched a crappy Chinese dub of Film Gold with Mangapanda-level subtitles. Thankfully, I managed to understand most of the movie, and now it's time to review it. I'll try to be as broad as possible to avoid going into specific spoilers, but if you haven't watched the film yet and want to remain unspoiled you may want to leave. Here's a cute shark to make this blog worth your time:
Now, time for a review:
Let's start with the protagonists themselves, the Straw Hats. No Straw Hat really stood out in this film, and that's a good thing because almost ALL of them got ample screentime. Luffy was in his normal place as the leader. Nami didn't fight but she had the most personal plotline of everyone. We got to see Usopp use h…

This chapter seemed to strike the rare balance between great action and interesting exposition. We finally saw Pedro in action for once, slashing enemies on the run, running up walls, and also HE'S GOT A BOMB! His attack, though brief, was quite satisfying. And Brook gets to demonstrate some of his own soul powers, conveniently locking out Smoothie in the process. Nice action overall, though Smoothie is quite a big fish to fry and is probably too much for both Brook and Pedro. Can't wait to have Pedro and Tamago go up against each other.
Also, Zeus is too cute. Funny how Pound hyped him up to be this evil storm cloud.
In the midst of all this we are introduced to the greatest Charlotte child, Angla, dawg. Then Pudding shows up and plans to d…Read more >
This was definitely the chapter we needed after a hiatus, as we got a combination of action and infodump galore.

semencream. Then there's Amande and her Meito known as Shirauo, which she uses to bisect and kill King Baum. RIP to best tree, you died as pathetically as you lived. And then there's the best power of all, Mont-d'Or's ability to manipulate books and pretty much put anyone in its setting. That may just be the best DF power of all time, and I'm sure Mont-d'Or writes his own books to give his opponents the most gruesome experiences imaginable. Though he would be wise to have cop…
