Well, for the first time in what seems like forever, I did not have the disposition of a drunk monkey while reading this chapter, so I'm pretty sure I understood most of it and so I can write a coherent blog.
But first, I would like to take the time to wish a very happy birthday to our very own Donquixote Doflamingo! Unfortunately, we barely got to see the birthday boy in this chapter, which I had hoped would complete the flashback, but I probably bit off a bit more than I could chew. At least we got more of an explanation than we did in last week's
crap chapter. Overall I would give it about 5 herpderps/60 for the suspense it stirred as well as Rocie/Cora's robbery. Also it had beautiful snow scenes, and I'm a sucker for those.
Some notes on the chapter:
- Cover Story: I got no idea what be going on the translation was so bad.
- The potential dealbreaker between Law and Rocie: It seems that this rather good relationship could hit a bump in the road because of a single dealbreaker: Rocie's affiliation with the government, which Law hates. Since Law still thinks highly of Rocie I don't think he ever learned the truth, but I bet Doffy will tell him once the flashback is over, causing Law to make a tough choice mentally.
- Rocie's powers: At first, I had the same mindset as Law on Rocie's powers: they were a bunch of sh*t. Rocie's demonstration didn't make things much better, as I kinda lost most of my respect for him when he demonstrated his power by farting. Really, Oda? However, the scene where he stole the Ope Ope no Mi gave me a better liking for his powers, and the fact that he used his power as well as the darkness and the cold to steal it was pretty cool.
- Did I mention I like manga snow?
