- ==Is this panda form just a transition?==
I will be disapointed if Luffy defeats Mingo in this form. He is to big, he seems like he is not very agile or flexible, also he looks like a panda, did I mention this before? I think i did. Anyway, it is just a clumsy form that doesnt fit Luffy's personality or fighting stile. I just don't see Luffy as a big dude, he is skinny, strong and endurent as hell.
I hope this is just some kind of a transition form or maybe he has more animals in his rich repertoire of techniques. I was also hoping on the vulcanization theory but maybe that will be gear 5? That.Would.Be.Awesome.
