Holy crap, this is one hell of a build up chapter! O_o
First we got Fujitora, then the 1st division commander of the blackbeard pirates, then a powerful ass rookie, now we even got CP0!? Not mention that the strawhats still have Doflamingo to deal with! This arc is becoming more and more freaking awesome! I definiately can't wait for the next chapter!
On the side note, Robin is looking sexy and classy as hell in this chapter! I LOVE IT! <3
In speaking of Robin, I decided to go on ahead and show you guys the two remaining illustrations that were from the 180-page document of Rokushiki Robin project that I sent to Oda last month, plus some sketches that I drew for my Huaquandao project :
Kaika Geppo “Oshiage” (Blooming Moon step “Boost”) - While performing Geppo, Robin will sprout a various number of legs in the back of one of or both her normal ones, then jumps off the air with all legs simultaneously, which in return, if done correctly, enables her to jump into further distances then a normal Geppo. The speed and distances she travels depends on the number of legs used.
Technique created by me and Illustrated by CCann using this rough sketch that I drew. It should be noted while she illustrated the 4 panels, I’m the one who did the dialog, added the flower petals, and arranged the order of the panels.
Jūnikougan (Twelve queen gun) - In this technique, two Robins (one in front of the enemy on and one behind him) will unleash a Rokukougan simultaneously on both sides of the enemy.
Now here are some Huaquandao rough sketches:
Now that we got that out of the way, it's time for something a bit personal, a question that I've been wanting to ask for a while. And the question is:
The reason I ask is because as much as I love doing this project since it’s fun and tests my creativity (among other things), I can’t help but feel that this project should be used to help and inspire others who want to have Robin (or any hana hana user, even if it’s an OC) be a Rokushiki user in their fanworks but don’t have the motivation or the courage to go through with it and just want something that can use for their work or to give them some ideas. I’m hoping that my project will do just that.
