You know what time it is. Cont from >>101439956
Aye, it's time to speculate what part Law's crew has to play. Will they show up to save the Sunny?
we figure out what picachus power is
ussop one shots lao g
franky fights a vice admiral
jesus devil fruit reveal
Oh no. Not Luffyko... Can't we put that dark part of the story behind us? People are being turned into toys now, not into the opposite sex, can't we speculate what kind of toys the Strawhats would become?
I think Zo will just be a mini arc before Wano.
I bet you casuals even watch naruto weekly
>Turn up at Zou
>Law: sup crew
>Some bullshit filler event
Yeah I see it happening, unless Oda has something in store for us.
So Sanji handles the enemy on his own?
And how will the rest of the Strawhats get there, I don't think the Sunny has any business going back to Dressrosa...
but i can't fap to people being turned into toys
i misread this as
a mythical zoan fruit that turns you into jesus
No, fuck off.
Projecting much anon?
I don't think Sunny crew will fight Big Mom. Without Luffy and Zoro it makes no sense. And don't forget that Nami saved Mom's child (forgot her name). And with Mingo, admiral and CP0 and tournament, it would've been overkill to have some yonko fight with all that.
So Nami or Robin as mindless dolls, incapable of resisting any of your orders, wouldn't be arousing to you? Suit yourself.
Aren't spoilers not for another 24h
But did it actually say anywhere Big Mom is there herself? It could be just some underling, they may stand a chance. Also, OP hasn't yet had a descent ship-to-ship fight, would be nice, Nami would outnavigate Big Mom's ship, sailing circles around it, would be nice.
They are arousing to me now, why would I care about them as toys
Why would you care more about them as men?
Because of all of Man-Robin's dicks.
Even without Big Mom, don't you think she would have some strong fighters there being one of the most powerful pirates and people in the world? Yes, Nami could outnavigate and run anaway, but if they fight it will be offscreen with mugiwara crew being beaten. And Oda won't let Sanji job twice in one arc, no matter what people want to believe.
Mytical Zoan fruit, allows you to walk on water, turn water into wine and create endless amounts of food, also resurection.
>ussop one shots lao g
do it Oda!
>devil fruit that lets you directly manipulate water
>just turn all the water around you into wine and swim in it
i wish ;__;
But just because she's a yonkou, she doesn't have to have an all-badass crew, even Roger had Buggy and Crocus. Sanji, Brook, Chopper and Nami could easily hold their own against mooks.
Not turning the water into moose piss and drinking it
They also wouldn't have any pussies, and hard wooden mouths.
Who ever said they have to be made of wood? They make toys with soft pussies and mouths, you know...
>big mom's crew is entirely made up of people that resemble food / are edible
i know it's not true because of the other's we've seen but it's still funny to me
Yes it does she mean she has a badass crew, very badass. Oh yeah, and let's forget how Roger also had Rayleigh and Shanks, also Scopper was probably pretty strong.
Sanji and crew couldn't hurt a nail on Big Mom's crew.
Sanji and Brook vs Pekoms and Tamago seems like a good match up.
The idea of a lion man with a turtle fruit is funny to me.
>scopper is useless and was recruited entirely because of his name
If you honestly think a yonkou can only have badasses in their crew, then you are truly lost. Whitebeard had people on his OWN ship that fainted in Shanks' presence. Kidd has been owning Kaidou's ships. Why wouldn't Sanji & co. be able to compete here?
Green texting that means you are saying he was strong. Which is what I said. So, ok.
I seriously hope we get some slice of life chapters after Dressrosa where the crew talks about the events during the timeskip and stuff like that
Don't you have some wolf dicks to suck?
it just means i was making a joke, i agree with you
luffyko would be like the perfect archetype for those hentaijrpgs, dumb innocent girl who just does what she wants. also she gets tricked into fucking people in a regular basis while being none the wiser afterwards. she probably thinks it's wrestling or some shit
>ussop one shots lao g
>Not Ussop barely managing to stay out of range of his kung fu shit while dwarfs think he's just humoring the guy.
Daily reminder that Admiral Ryokugyū (Green Bull the one we haven't seen yet) is Yorki of the Rumbar pirates.
They have some fodder guys but ALSO some strong guys and those guys wouldn't just let Sanji and crew do what they want, believe it or not. And Kidd destroyed 2 ships of Big Mom's allies. If you think Sanji can take on Big Mom's ship then I really don't know what to say to you...
At least a volume of slice of life, that's all we need, please Oda, please...
Got some proof?
That's just bullshit. Tamago and Pekoms are probably strong but not top tier commanders. Like the weaker Whitebeard division commanders
Sanji / CC / Brook / Chopper should be able to do that.
more like dumb-bar
Is Robin's mom actually dead or not? We didn't see how she died, did we?
Oh and Tamago and Pekoms are the only crewmates she has? Oh, ok then.
Like we've seen, Whitebeard had people on his ship who couldn't withstand Shanks' presence, and Roger had fucking Buggy with him. What if the ship isn't manned with badasses? What if Sanji & co. get to shine for once?
>implying these 2 photos were not irrefutable proof.
They're the only ones we know anything about, can't really speculate on the rest.
No, but we can assume other members are not on the fucking ship. It's probably the same ship that was on Fishman Island
And the no name crew members are fodder.
And also WB had people on his ship who fought with admiral.
>What if ship isn't manned with badasses
Impossible, she wouldn't be a yonko then. And Sanji and co will get to shine but not against one of the late bosses of the series.
Stop being such a jerk
A man can hope
We also know about three eyed girl.
So Big Mom would send her ship with fodder in the sea controlled by Dofla/Kaido with fodder on it?
Just letting you know you are now going full retard
So she wouldn't be a yonkou if this particular ship wasn't manned with all possible badasses at all times? When I said what if it isn't manned with badasses, I didn't mean EVER, I meant at the moment. Of course, it could be it's Big Mom herself, with all her top commanders, and no fight ensues because Lola is her daughter and yadda yadda.
>three eyed girl
Who is nameless fodder.
how far ahead do you think oda plans all this shit?
Just letting you know that saying that Sanji will take on Big Mom's ship is one of the most retarded things written in any OP thread.
Jinbe will show up to help with Big Mom
But we don't know anything about her. Unless you know something I don't?
YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST! JESUS HAS THE MYTHICAL ZOAN JESUS AND CAN WALK ON WATER. IT WILL BE REVEAL WHEN REBECCA THOWS HIM INTO THE WATER SOMEHOW AND HE JUST STANDS ON THAT SHIT. DOESN'T COUNT AS A RING OUT SINCE HE DIDN'T GET SUBMERGED. HE PROCEEDS TO THROW WINE AT EVERYONE TO GET THEM DRUNK.
Do you honestly think the no name pirates on that ship are going to be strong? Nami will take them out with lightning.
The threat lies in Pekoms, Tamago and the name "Big Mom" itself
Is this your first time in a OP thread?
It doesn't matter how much you use the word, "fodder" doesn't mean what you think it means. If it's a crew member of a fucking Yonko, they're not fodder. Fodder is like the regular marines with guns, or the guys that get one shotted in the same chapter they're introduced.
So are Gorosei then, we don't know their names. I bet they are weak as shit.
So she sent big ass ship in a sea near Dofla who is working for another Yonko Kaido with fodder? Ok.
You mean like 90% of WB's crew?
She's pretty obviously going to be significant.
He's best bro with Vasco Shot then.
Do you honestly think that among the no name pirates there won't be at least one insanely strong guy to protect the ship?
>n-no guys shes a y-yonkou! t-there's no way the heroes of the story will beat her!
There is no way, now. Luffy always defeats strongest one and he won't fight Big Mom now.
there are even 2 insanely strong guys to protect the ship, Pekoms and Tamago.
And keep i mind that EVERYONE on the Sunny is a monster even by One Piece standards, even Chopper and Nami
Big Mom doesn't like people stealing her shit, son. She knows full well that her name alone won't stop reckless idiots like Luffy from disrespecting her. And she's got a nice ship. She'd fucking have to a few on there that have no trouble protecting it. Do you honestly think a Yonkou won't even have a a few badasses that would job the strawhats to compensate for the weaker ones on the ship? This is the first official island in the New World, and already Oda isn't shying away from breaking out big names. This shit has been hyped to the extreme as being the place where only the hardest can survive.
Why not? As far as I know, the yonkou aren't in open war. Kaidou was going to attack Whitebeard during the War, and Shanks stopped him, but Shanks' crew didn't look like they had fought. And the Gorosei sent a fleet to stop Shanks and Whitebeard from even meeting each other.
So next chapter:
Pica vs the duo
Sanji and the trio vs Big Mom?
Read Marine Ford again.
Good thing it doesn't really make sense for her to even be able to be on the same ship as Pekoms and Tamago, given the timeline.
>This shit has been hyped to the extreme as being the place where only the hardest can survive.
Yet there are thousands of people living a more or less normal life on Dressrosa.
Oda did the same hype shit with the paradise
Pica vs. Zoro while Luffy and Violet go ahead.
Plus some more of the Colosseum battle.
Is Lao G's ability super speed?
He has cool arrows on his suit and when that dwarf charged him ,remember that dwarfs are apparently super fast and people can't see them. Well when the dwarf charged Lao G got his glasses, put them on to see better and then fucked the dwarf up.
>Why wouldn't one yonkou send only their ship without strong people on it to defend it from one of the 3 main rivals
He seems to be really fucking fast.
Are you retarded? There where thousands of fodder soldiers under Whitebeard's flag and only 3 or 4 strong guys
Vista couldn't even scratch Akainu
You are seriously overestimating the yonkous
Reminds me of Roshi and Krillin's fight in the tournament...
Dressrosa is a protected island. It's protected by a Shichibukai who has connections to the world government AND fucking Kaido.
>Vista couldn't even scratch TOP 5 strongest person in the OP universe
>That makes him weak
Blackbeard, Dragon, Shanks, Kaidou, Big Mom,
Akainu not even top 5
>Who works for Kaido
>Island produces fruits for Kaidou and his beast army
>Island is one of the most important things for Kaidou if he wants to have strongest army
>Big Mom enters his territory near the Island
>It is without her or any strong people just because
I don't think Blackbeard is that strong. He's just underhanded and has all his stats in stamina.
>not insanely strong
But Sanji can beat them anyway
So Big Mom thinks it's a good idea to head out into enemy territory herself?
None of the are stronger than Akainu. Except maybe for Dragon. And BB.
You say that as if Akainu is weak or something. He's the strongest Admiral, son. I'm talking about the main crews of ships and ships that are sent out to do important personal business. Marine Ford was a war. Of course WB brought all of his underlings together to fight for a last stand.
Blackbeard really isn't that strong
You don't? How else is she gonna destroy the factory and advantage Kaidou has over her.
If one admiral were stronger than a Yonkou, the WG wouldn't have been shitting itself when it had 3 of them.
I'd say Shanks for sure, and maybe Dragon and BB.
But none of them have anything on Garp.
With those mighty underlings she should have.
He is strong. He gave scars to Shanks before he had any DF powers. And Shanks came all the way to WB to warn him about BB.
I think he is weaker than Akainu, but very strong.
That boner you have for him hasn't been justified yet. Shanks, on the other hand, obviously has more haki than Akainu and single handedly stopped the war by merely showing up. Nah, Akainu isn't stronger than him.
Those mighty underlings that will be defeated by Sanji? Those underlings should defeat Mingo and all his crew even when stronger guy Sanji jobbed against Mingo?
>obviously has more haki than Akainu
How is that obvious?
Forgot about Garp, he could actually (if not Luffy) be the one to kill Akainu. I think he will do something awesome near the end and show his full power.
About Pekoms and Tamago:
Imagine you were a fuckin Yonkou and had like a candy factory in some shit territory with no real threat. Who would you send to grab that candy?
I would send some weak members of my crew. Like in the SH I'd send chopper and Ussop or something.
So I really think that Pekoms and Tamago might just be some of the weaker Big Mom pirates.
A while ago Sanji wasn't supposed to even stand a chance against the people on that ship, now he can beat them? I'm confused.
BB is literally the strongest person in the OP world
That's what people here are saying.
yeah, because Doflamingo would attack a yonkou ship out of boredom. The name "Big Mom" is enough reason to stay away from it, regardless of how strong the crew on that ship is.
Only with his crew and using tricks and sneaky methods.
Put him up solo against any of the big shots and I bet he'd get fucked.
Isn't that Danbo? Does this mean that Toei will animate Yotsubato?
I think Gorosei are stronger. No proofs yet obviously but Gandhi has a strong sword.
Yeah, they just do fetch quests for her. I think Tamago is on Brook level (if he is the one that drinks tea).
Possible, but their designs are way too fucking cool for that.
>implying it's not only accepted gay pairing in OP
No, Doflamingo/Crocodile does not count as gay pairing.
Imagine if you were a sugar maniac who valued cakes and candy over any treasure, and you were sending somebody to collect your favourites.
In other words, you are sending somebody to get something you really fucking want.
I'd send somebody strong.
Pft. How is it not? Shanks damaged the shit out of WB's ship by merely having his haki leak out. He wasn't even controlling it at the time. Also, Shanks hasn't been revealed to even have a devil fruit power AND is missing an arm that renders him not as combat savvy as he'd want to be. Yet he is a Yonkou who settled a beef with Kaido in time to go to Marine Ford and stop the war. What aspect of his strength, then, do you think allows him to stay on top like that? To me the answer is obvious: immense fucking haki.
He is the final villian and shonen law dictates that both Luffy and BB will surpass everyone else, including WB and Roger
>implying he doesn't(didn't) have somebody with DF powers that would tell him who is on the ship.
>implying he wouldn't call Kaidou for support (unless too proud).
What in the hell are you smoking
We have already seen the swordsman puppet guy
10 bucks he is the strongest commander in big moms army
Strength doesn't matter in an easy fetch quest. It's not like stronger people will get the candy better. Unless like other yonkou get in the way.
But since the factory is still standing and none of the yonkou claimed Fishmen Island, I'm guessing they have some kind of deal or wtv.
>Using logic in a fictional chinese cartoon
what are you smoking son
Akainu can probably control his haki better. Shanks fought with Mihawk, and I don't think Mihawk is close to Akainu.
Enbosses of OP will be BB, Akainu, Gorosei (not necessarily in that order) I think, so Akainu is probably pretty strong. Not saying that Shanks isn't, but doubt that he will be stronger than one of the strongest enemies of the story.
Easy? Fishman Island is at the start of the New World, which means for pirates deep in the NW like the Yonkou, it's pretty far.
I wouldn't send fodder halfway across the NW to get something I really wanted, I'd send somebody strong enough to make sure it got to me.
Unless of course BB kills him.
I would send weaker guys and keep strong ones closer to the real action in case BB or Kaidou attack me.
Using that logic you might be right, but unlike the grand line, I think the new world is less linear and more of a fuckfest of random islands and seas.
So yonkous might not necessarily be at the end of the line.
It's surprisingly popular anon
Also forgot about Sengoku and Kong, but it's hard to tell how strong they really are.
But what if the weaker ones get fucked over by any of the countless misfortunes in the New World?
Well we know about Sengoku from the war.
You send new ones. You can afford to lose couple of weaker ones, but can't afford to lose one strong one.
It's not like they are objectively weak, they just aren't the most powerful members of the crew.
If they made it all the way there in One Piece. Then there's no reason for them to not be able to get back.
Fandom is annoying
And if it's on the way back?
All those delicious treats that I remind you that you really, really want could be lost.
Then you eat your crew.
Big Mom sounds like a really shitty boss.
But Dofla/Crocodile is cannon while Croc was still a grill
Ace keeps saying he wanted to make WB the pirate king.
WB himself said that he didn't care about going to raftel.
What habning here?
The only reason anyone could have to think Dofla X Crocodile ever happened was that Dofla said he was jealous of Croc fighting for Whitebeard's side. That's hardly proof enough of anything, unless there's something I overlooked.
>WB himself said that he didn't care about going to raftel.
He said that to Roger, not Ace. Or Ace didn't care what WB thought and was going to try to make him the pirate king no matter what.
Ace didn't realize that WB didn't give a shit or that WB was trying to make him the King until it was too late.
PK is the one that rules all the seas, Raftel is irrelevant. Luffy could find OP but if he doesn't control seas he isn't a king. Just a guy with OP.
But Roger didn't control anything, he just sailed around the world.
Doubt it. He mainly uses his devil fruit powers, and it's going to continue like that for a while. Admirals are more about devil fruits, plain and simple. Shanks doesn't have a devil fruit. Not that we know of. He's had haki since before the beginning of the story of OP, so he's had all that time to train in haki. Since we can probably assume he doesn't have a devil fruit, his haki is so strong that he's become a Yonkou and can settle a score with Kaido (quick) and stop a war by showing up. Nobody wanted it with Shanks when he showed up. Even fucking Kizaru wouldn't fuck with Beckman because it meant fucking with Shanks.
He ruled NW. Pirate era ended, there was one king. Then he said what he said and created whole shitstorm and new pirate era.
Admirals aren't all about DFs. To be admiral you need to have Haki, even if you had strongest fruit in the worldX10000, haki is a must. Which means they care about haki. It's not canon but in the film Kizaru is the only one that is said to rely to much on his DF power.
Where does it say he ruled anything? All I ever saw of him was one ship and it's crew, people like Shiki and Whitebeard didn't bow to him, and I bet he had lots more enemies than friends.
Raftel IS relevant, it's what most people believe makes them PK, including the location of One Piece which holds too much power.
The PK goes everywhere in the world wherever he goddamn pleases, including the place no one else can touch.
Literally in the first pages of the manga.
Because to get there you have to fight all the strongest pirates and government, that's how you are proven. If Luffy would teleport there and take OP (if it's something you can take) nobody would think of him as a PK.
I didn't say they are all about it. I said they are more about devil fruits, which I don't see how anyone can deny. It's a must, yes, but devil fruit training is easier than training haki. It's more efficient to hone than is haki. For admirals who always have to be on standby, it makes more sense for them to train in devil fruits more.
>It's not canon but
Luffy doesn't want to control the seas though.
Luffy is told that too. The fact is it's not canon so it doesn't even matter unless Oda says it matters.
And if he beat the fuck out of the New World but never touched Raftel nobody would think of him as the King either.
It makes sense for them to be the strongest they can be. No way Akainu would let his haki be shit. Even though his DF is overpowered.
You have to "now" - but beforehand nobody had been there, and nobody has been since.
It's said it isn't even about the place itself, but 'getting there' - e.g. when Roger offered to tell WB how to get there etc.
Checked it, doesn't say that. Try again.
Compared to the previous admiral trio, Fujitora really needs to keep up to stay at that level.
No logia, so he can get easily get hurt.
On top of that he's blind, aside from acting all cool about it, it's still a disadvantage.
After getting hit, the other admirals would be like: lol watch me regenerate nigger.
Just goes to show what a badass he is getting that position.
>Fujiora blasts holes with his DF+ haki in them
>lol get rekt
Didn't Chingao say something about lending his Happou navy to Luffy? It would be awesome for Luffy to gather underlings like that throughout the course of the New World. If One Piece is found it's going to cause a war anyway, so he'll need an army.
He wants to be a PK and when he becomes he will.
So? In the manga it's said that all admirals+ possess Haki.
How would they know if he had made it to the raftel?
Could be Oda further foreshadowing towards the massive shit that will go down at the end of the series - whether it's from finding OP or Dragon making a move etc.
You keep going to extremes or misinterpreting what I'm saying. I didn't say Admirals are "all" about devil fruits, and I didn't say Akainu's haki is shit. I'm merely saying that, given the evidence, Shanks has better haki because he's had more time to focus only on that, and because he still manages to dominate the New World along with the rest of the Yonkous despite it being the only ability that is confirmed for him.
Haha, you don't read much manga do you? Being blind is always an advantage in these kinds of stories.
Which means he has a strong haki, but that doesn't mean it's stronger than Akainu's . Wouldn't surprise me if it was, but there are no proofs it is.
Where the fuck did Fujitora come from... It still bugs me that he just came out of nowhere. I'm sure Oda can whip up a backstory and will do it eventually but right now it feels like he just walked onto the marines and became a fuckin admiral just like that.
The Marines did a massive recruitment drive after the War when Sengoku stepped down, and Aokiji left, they found him as part of that; seeing how fucking powerful he was, he was offered Admiral I guess.
More like, holy shit he's blind he's such a hardass since he had to werk to the top.
Fuji needs his cane-sword to feel the surroundings like a blind man, but how's he gonna fight in a place that isn't open at all? (cities, caves, inside ships, etc)
He might only be able to spam craters around him and make the best of it.
Yea but normally the army doesn't appoint someone to highest position. You get promoted.
I would have accepted him as a VA but an admiral is much if he's just a walk in.
The world government had a draft. So yeah, he and Green Bull pretty much just walked on. I imagined they were deliberately recruited to be admirals.
Normally - but I guess these were exceptional circumstances - they needed an Admiral, and quickly.
And there's no proof Akainu's haki is even remotely as strong as Shanks's is. What's your point? If you won't believe it until they both show their full haki, there's no point in talking about this. But fact is fact. At the moment, Shanks has been shown to have the strongest haki in the world. It can change later, but at the moment there's a reason he's feared, and it's not because devil fruit powers.
If he's on an Admiral's level, then I guess there's no point enlisting him as a lowly grunt.
Spoiler anticipation threads should be posted on tuesday,
all this thread is going to be is faggots posting their fan-fiction
He's actually a newfag to the marines.
It's kinda like sentomaru, he's strong enough to get a high position in the marines with no previous marines experience.
Akainu just recruits people who are stronk and gives them appropriate positions.
Maybe fuji led forces in his previous occupation.
(maybe somewhere on the red line, or as an insane bodyguard with minions in mariejoa)
They needed an admiral and he was so off the gate powerful they just gave it to him. What much else is there to say? Of course there was a background check, and apparently there's nothing that says he's a threat. And of course he'll get fleshed out more. The endgame that he has planned for the shichibukai dictates that he has to have some serious personal reasons for wanting it disbanded.
I think his beef with the Shichibukai is just based on the themes the Admirals are proven to have.
By 'themes' I am referring to the types of 'Justice' Oda has emphasised in each of them.
I'm guessing Fujitora's 'justice' correlates with why he wants to disband it.
He doesn't necessarily need to get fleshed out. I mean, do we really know anything about where the other admirals came from?
What if Sanji makes a deal with Big Mom. he cooks her cool candy and tell her to join them in fuckin Kaidou or something?
>Shanks damaged the shit out of WB's ship by merely having his haki leak out. He wasn't even controlling it at the time
He did that shit on purpose. He even apologized because he was on an enemy ship and didn't know what to expect.
>all of this power-level garbage
He probably was a VA when he was enlisted but shortly proved to be up to Admiral. Especially since he has an agenda that Akainu assuredly LOVES. I hope the next Admiral is a Rob Lucci type Dark Justice. In it to kill.
You know you love it.
I really don't.
People are masturbating over the least interesting part of One Piece: the fights. And are trying to pigeon hole non-combat related characters like Dragon and the Gorosei into power tiers.
It's obnoxious as fuck.
I don't, but many people watch (or rather READ, as it should be) OP for the fights - it's typical Shonenshit after all.
I read the manga for the world building and backstory - I'm really interested in the Ancient Kingdom etc., all that shit, fights are ok.
It's not like One Piece has anything else going for it.
It's a shounen manga, the fights are what the kiddies tune in for.
Anyone else find it kind of silly how places like Grand Line and New World get hyped up as being "Where only the strongest of the strong can survive." then they go there and there are fucking huge countries of normal people? Even in Dressrosa a gladiator there like Rebecca would probably get instantly killed against someone like Enel.
You can't say "none of them" and then list two of them.
Is Barto just a male Hancock?
You mean Cavendish?
He's much better than any character in OP.
The inability to look Luffy in the face
Well then no, not at all.
Isn't Fujitora based on Zatoichi?
Whip up a backstory? I'm sure that Oda already has his backstory prepared. It'll probably just be a slow reveal, like everyone else.
Toei'll have a blast dragging that one out.
You didn't get the homo hints
>Sanji is attacking Big Mom's ship, when suddenly there's a huge explosion from the Sunny Go
>Sanji uses his air walk to get higher and see what it was when suddenly Pekoms jumps in the air, he can seemingly Fly
>Nami is trying to deal with Tamago, but he is using a strange ability on her and she Can't Move A
>He reveals his fruit is the Khite Kite
>He can use peoples hair to pierce their brain and control them, he tries to use it on Momo but for some reason it does not work on Kid
>Cut to Doflamingo who is extremely pissed now and is heading to the Colleseum to find out who the fake Lucy is when he's confronted by the real Luffy
>Doflamingo laughs Fufufu
Just from the way they talk? I can talk flirtatiously with people I've never fucked. Dofla may be gay for Croc but just because he's flirty doesn't imply some sort of secret past
More importantly, why is Doflamingo sharing information on DF with the public? Noone in the government mentions that information was classified.
>HE PROCEEDS TO THROW WINE AT EVERYONE TO GET THEM DRUNK.
So I guess Zoro is gonna fight him
Why would Doflamingo fuck Luffy's mom?
T-That has nothing to do with anything...
I watch other stuff too...
Or hey If Nami were here she could actually be useful for once in that she never seems to get drunk.
I'd rather Croc and Daz
What about Helmeppo and Coby?
But they're brothers in arms! There's a saying in the Finnish army, what's gay for civilians is brotherhood to soldiers.
Do people even give a fuck about them?
Aren't most yaoi doujins about Zoro and Sanji?
And what's gay for soldiers is forbidden to civilians
They kinda remind of that gay elf and dwarf in lotr. Must be Helmeppo's hair.
Why does people getting excited over Luffy will win or lose?
He's the protag, he's bound to win.
They're also brothers of the hidden leaf ballsack and will become joint hokage pirate sword master and rule the universe for all time!!!
There was no gay elf and dwarf in lotr, you must be thinking of Frodo and Sam, who acted like they were gay, though Sam got married and had children.
Just like he won against Aokiji, and Kizaru, and Sentoumaru, and Kuma, and Magellan, and at Marineford he kicked the asses of everybody, thus saving Ace.
Nerd. You want your one ring to get destroyed you faggot? Cause I'd be happy to take care of it.
Which he did.
Some speculation on the Supernova's hidden agendas:
Have been attacking Big Mom. Probably just want to become more powerful by defeating a stronger enemy. They choose to go after her first. Might be a threat to the strawhats eventually.
Might have uncovered some dark secret while being a marine. Revolutionaries might have recruted him along the line. Kidnapped Caribou, who knows Shirahoshi's secret. Will he go after the ancient weapons?
Has a past with/is important to the marines. Might just want freedom or works together with revolutionaries. She will nonetheless be important later.
>Capone and Urouge
Are here to wreck some serious shit. I want an entire arc to take place inside Capone. Urouge is awesome too. That's why I want them to become more important soon.
This person draws them a lot.
Too late for that, anon, sorry.
Aragorn wasn't a dwarf
Nigga Legolas and Gimli were gay as fuck, to the point Tolkien felt the need to write about their great "love" and how they sailed away together in the appendices. Even eight year old me knew that. And they both don't have love interests. ...Ignore the movies.
>She will nonetheless be important later.
Female characters are never important in One Piece.
I dig Helmeppo's hat
Who is crocodile
there are always few people that like drawing unpopular characters.
You know it's not true. Look at Rescue arcs, all the shit with Big Mom. I think Hancock was pretty important too, and Bonney is gonna become some important plot point in future
Why do people continue to read One Piece when Oda is constantly recycling plots?
>implying Croc was or will ever be female
tits or no tits that guy is a man
Tell me a single, original plot in the last 10 years, I dare you.
Here we fucking go again. Please let this shit die.
Because "love" has to mean physical attraction. Don't you have any close friends anon? Stupid question, you wouldn't be calling them gay if you did and knew what their love was about. Didn't mean to remind you about your loneliness.
Space Dandy has saved anime forever with its impeccable dialogue and gripping story. It is truly the Evangelion of this generation.
Looks like the trolls are here.
You missed one
God, now we have to do this.
>inb4 "[manga you like] sucks"
He's definitely under Kaido, but I feel as if he's been looking for something to sink his teeth in. I'm sure that he's going to joining up with Luffy/Law/Barto when the time comes.
No, we're just going to ignore it and keep talking about One Piece. Where did Law get a submarine, and why haven't we seen any others?
Is the little mini-submarine the Strawhats have, canon?
Yes, but I was thinking more along the lines "why don't the marines have subs?", would be practical, and they have the resources, obviously.
I still can't wait for the rest of The Heart Pirates to show up in this arc. I haven't seen anyone really talking about them, but you know they're gonna come to help Law.
What if they're dead?
They're on Zou, right?
>implying anyone can stop the Bepo train.
Yeah. While Luffy has a one-up on Dofla, I think Dofla has the one-up on Law. Zou isn't too far from Dressrosa, so isn't is possible Dofla's already killed them?
Maybe they aren't practical in new world
Yeah, apparently. I think when the strawhats finally meet up with them and tell them what happened to Law there gonna go try to save him.
It does seem strange, especially with Vegapunk around.
He attacked Kaido's boy Scotch, though, indicating Drake might have a negative opinion towards Kaido. It might be that this was just to show Scotch what he was capable of, since both Drake and Scotch lived on that same island 2 years after that supposed fight.
I don't want any more rescue arcs
I don't think Oda would have them off-paneled.
So how tough is Law's crew? He had a pretty big crew, but when Rayleigh used his hakiblast, only one of them was effected, and even he didn't go down.
But they're not exactly relevant to the strawhats
maybe he's developing ultra fast planes instead
Even if they do go to rescue him it wouldn't be the subject of an arc. They'll probably show up at the last moment, just when it seems like Law is gonna be killed.
Click random until you get a random devil fruit power.
But isn't this one already? They're trying to save Kinemon's friend, and in fact the entire kingdom... not to forget Law.
I have seen nice Law x Luffy doujins, and Coby x Luffy one with strangely good art but shit plot. Haven't seen good Ace x Luffy doujins, which is strange. Than there these Whitebeard and Blackbeard raping Ace doujin
Friendly reminder to hide shit of fools and report shit of fools for the well-being of OPG
No this is more like "Helping Princess arc" rather than usual "Rescue arc", but of course I'm joking here since that's really simplified approach to the story.
I could see all of the top 3 supernova crews (Kid, Heart, and SH) being fairly close in strength.
True, but I still think that since they've already been introduced they're gonna be put to use later. Also, Oda doesn't have a proclivity for killing characters off-panel.
I'm not gay and I wasn't asking for it. I only know about a big Zoro x Sanji shipping following from fujoshi.
I ignore it for most part and I have no interest in shipping in one piece even thou there are pairs I would like to see at the end of the story
wait Luffyko actually happened?
>Has not been keeping up
this thread is one of the worst things I have read. some of you really don't understand this series. jesus christ day time /a/ is terrible
As if you couldn't take that both ways. Why do you desperately need them to be so straight anyways? What's it worth to you?
No, it was some shit that everyone SWORE was gonna happen in Impel Down. There were even a few faked scans of it that fooled some people.
Don't forget Manshelly.
>inb4 she falls for Mansopp because of his nose
What if Pica is Sabo?
I don't want this to turn into a shipping thread. You understand, right?
He's also super fucking strong since the dwarves are super fucking strong themselves
Because the gayness isn't there. If it was, then I'd be defending it. See how that works?
What if you're a faggot?
dodged a bullet, huh?
I doubt Luffy would allow to turn him into grill, he likes his golden balls. He is not some faggot like Sanji after all.
Come on anon, spill the beans
WOULD HANCOCK FALL IN LOVE WITH CAVENDISH OR WOULD IT BE THE OTHER WAY AROUND?
How could Hancock fall in love with someone who isn't Luffy?
Who said Cavendish isn't Luffy?
Come on anon. Stop it. We had shipping threads in past and they often turn into shipping wars, something that is just retarded. It's fine to have some idea, but there won't be any romance in One Piece and some idiots don't get it.
Does anyone feel like Oda is overusing a little the Eneru face?
Oda said, I believe it, that settles it.
No, it's golden every time.
That's right. That's why I wrote it, but there really is nothing stopping Oda from having e.g. another timeskip at the end of series and showing that x character married y character.
That's what I think, but talking about it in threads usually starts some pointless arguments
I thought it was great when Perone did it, made sense, but Jimbei could have a different reaction,
How strong is Jean Bart? He was famous enough for Law to recognize him pre-time-skip.
slightly below Zoro tier probably
Considering Bepo seems to be Sanji tier, it makes sense Law picked himself another strong crew member.
Based on a real person and part of his crew, so probably pretty strong.
Cavendish would obviously turn to stone as soon as he saw her.
Can't be too great since he got caught. Do we know what any of the Heart Pirates look like post-timeskip?
Why is Megalo the best part of Fishman Island?
>Was a captain at one point
>Infamous enough to be part of Saint Roswald's collection
I'ld say he's pretty strong.
Man that pic reminds me of the undead shark in gyo
So the prisoners on Level 6 in Impel Down weren't too great since they got caught?
Who's that Joy Boy nigga?
A blast from the past.
I guess not.
Great logic there.
The original D.
>What is Iva
I'm a regular Socrates.
>First traps in the manga are Croco's desciples
>Iva knows something about his past
He was either a girl or loves traps.
It is known.
I really hope Croc's secret isn't being a woman. If it's true now then the reveal is completely ruined for me.
What did I just say? It doesn't matter if he has tits or not, though I did note that Oda avoids to show much of his chest underneath all those layers of clothes. If he is desperate enough to go to Iva to be a guy, he's a guy. If he's comfy with everyone thinking he's a guy, he's a guy. If he has tits right now or doesn't, it doesn't matter, he's a guy. Just because there's the possibility of Iva having turned him doesn't mean Iva turning him back will result in Croc being a weak willed, fanservicey tsun tsun woman who is embarassed because she only transformed to be seen as Whitebeards son. Not even Oda would do something so stupid.
Croc's secret is that he never was turned by Iva.
The fact that one of his underlings is a person who identifies both as a woman and a man (Mr. 2 & Bon Kurei, having both the woman and the man name) makes me think he is somewhat sympathetic to people with gender issues.
You rather want him to be a closet tranny?
Maybe Oda should keep it a secret forever.
Yeah, but since Croc is Luffy's mom...
it's not like that soldier that Iva turned into a girl had a change of personality, right?
Makes you wonder if those people are just playing devils advocate for the arguments sake or if they really believe the things they are saying.
Other way around, actually. Wait, do people call women who pass as men trannies too? I thought that was only an insult for men who pass as women
If you had suddenly tits you'd be happy too. For a while. Until your period starts.
But there's a big issue with all of this. If Iva gets knocked out, wouldn't they revert back to original? He got knocked out during Marineford. Croc stayed the same. Therefore, Iva has never turned Croc and Croc has tits right now.
That's not how it works. It's not like Laws powers stop working when he's unconscious, It's not like Luffy will die when Iva will die.
That's actually a really good point. Do the hormones stay in his victims' systems when he dies or will they revert?
>implying luffy and crew didnt make a shit ton of allies though out their travels.
>Implying luffy cant call on whole nations for backup
Women can be also transexual, you know.
It's not like he's constantly using his powers to keep Luffy alive. After he puts hormones into someone's system, they stay there. He can't control them without touching someone, he can't turn men into women without injecting them with hormones
Might depend on the power. Moria said beating him unconcious wouldn't give people their shadows back, but apparently Sugar's effects will disappear after making her faint.
Iva's power seem rather permanent, so are Law's. Oda needs to provide us with more information on this phenomenon.
If they been properly transformed they probably have the right hormone secretions naturally to stay the way they are unless Iva undoes it.
Or think of it the way that Ivankov's power isn't directly changing people's anatomies, just giving them some ultra powerful hormones that make their bodies change themselves. Kind of like a vaccine, he's blasting them with something to make their body used to something permanently.
Should he get a fruit or is it better if he at least tries to go full Garp mode?
Close though Smoker is, he's still smoke.
>beating him unconcious wouldn't give people their shadows back
Wasn't that exactly what happened when he got crushed by that tower?
Garp with pink hair? He'll get a DF.
Heavy nightmare fuel. I haven't read OP in ages, need to catch up. How many Japanese kids are afraid of okama after this episode?
no, he got crushed, he was storing the shadows in his body and spilled them out. If shadows were in zombies, they would stay in zombies.
I think tears tears fruit would be too powerful for anyone
Consider for a moment the difference in Coby's appearance between his first and second appearance.
If he was to AGAIN change in appearance due to training I can see him looking somewhat like pic related.
Though perhaps such things are a mere dream.
Might have to go for df, as Rayleigh stated, people tend to lean toward one form of haki or another. With his awakening, it seems he's more likely a CoO leaning person, so not likely to match up to Garp physically.
did you see him in that one movie with the guy who idolized kizaru like a god?
>with pink hair
>civil discussions about my husbando when I'm gone
Damn you, /a/
Nah I missed that one.
I wonder what Kizaru was doing during the timeskip.
Aside from not giving a fuck of course.
>Aside from not giving a fuck of course.
is there anything else to do?
I don't think you get as strong as Kizaru is without wanting something.
I want to know what his dream is.
I'm normally too busy by not giving a fuck and I don't do anything else.
I imagine Kizaru as a guy that just wanted to do nothing and he somehow got his fruit. He was a marine was getting promoted, He never gave a fuck, he stated to earn more money, but he never spends it.
He thought he would have longer holidays with better position, but it's the opposite and the money that used to be necessary, lost it's meaning.
Oda pls don't do this.
Coby Admiral (Eventually) Nickname: Pink Panther
respect for 2000 hours
I hope it won't happen
>Sanji doesn't even have CoA
Would you like Croc if he were a woman once? Would he become your waifu instead of your husbando?
I wonder if they really turn into 100% women or just look like them and have really small manclits
That's something we will never get to know as long as one of them get pregnant I guess
I just finished Arabasta. When does One Piece get good?
Isn't Croc a slut for giving birth?
Are you watching the anime? If so, never
Nigga yes he can.
When Law warned them that only haki users should approach CC since he's a logia Luffy volunteered Sanji and Zoro.
Yea but you don't say tranny to them... do you?
How does it make you feel knowing that Crocodile is actually Luffy's mother?
When you do
Absolutely. I'm bi and it would probably just turn me on more to hear him talk about when he was a girl
Not that anon, but Croc would never be a waifu cause he's not a girl. Tits or not tits doesn't matter.
You should have dropped it if you didn't like it by Baratie.
I like the way you think
>cause he's not a girl
Ivankov may have turned him into a man.
Also this. If he really was a girl but wanted to be seen as a guy, I'd go on calling him a guy. Man clearly wants to be one
If you don't like it by Alabasta then it's not for you.
>implying Cora-san isn't Luffy's mother
His body, yeah. That's why I said tits or no tits doesn't matter. He's a man for both scenarios.
Why is Marineford such a boring arc?
Why is Ace such a mediocre character?
>he's a man for both scenarios
He's a man now - but what if he was born a woman?
That's a big may there dear.
Only we know for sure is Ivankov knows a "weakness" of his.
People cling to femcroc due to lack of imagination.
>Why is Ace such a mediocre character?
Because he's a retard that threw his life away
But all that matters is he's a man now. Do your past actions still define you?
nah, that's stupid
what if he is a little girl trapped in a butch woman's body? Maybe he was a man that wanted to be a woman, and Ivankov turned him into mascular woman that looks like a man?
No - he's a man now, I never tried to deny that.
Hundreds of people died just for him and then he just throws his life away, what a retard
Body a woman. Wants to be a man. I'd call him a man. Because if someone dresses like a man, acts like a man, says he wants to be a man it would just feel like I'm mocking that person if I call them a grill. Tits or no tits doesn't matter. Man in both scenarios.
>not sacrificing yourself to save your little brother
He's clearly comfortable with being assumed to be a man, wearing that Mr. 0 title proudly, calling himself a sir, dressing in masculine clothing.
>which causes your little brother to get caught up in a war and almost die
He threw his life away when the Top Dog insulted Whitebeard
If this privilege shit reaches one piece I won't be happy.
This stuff doesn't fly in japan right?
u wot m8 - I'm talking about when he took Akainu's punch which would've killed Luffy.
I want to be Prince Robert Alphonse Victor Alexander de Bourbon the Just, the Defender of the Faith, the Champion of the People and the Protector of the Weak.
Would you call me that?
It's not even priveledge shit though. Croc doesn't contradict himself, he always acts like a man and doesn't want anyone to know he's a woman. Not like that tumblr shit you're thinking of.
If you can be dedicated to being it then yes
Crocodile was born as a boy and started his pirate career as a man, but he always wanted to be a woman. He can't do that because he has reputation. At one point Crocodile asked Ivankov to turn him into a girl that still looks like a man, to hold his profile.
Crocodile's secret is that he looks like a man, dresses like a man, refers to himself as a man, but has a vagina .
It's about simple respect. It's not about privilege and tumblr and all those panromantic ace xe whatever bullshit. I can't respect half-assed shit like that. Those people don't know how it is to live a real life.
But let's say you have a person you respect, Crocodile would be a man I would respect. And then you find out their body is female, but they dress, act and want to be a man... if you respect that person, do you suddenly call them a female? No, because you respect that person. You respect that one wish that seems to be genuine.
Sure do, why not?
Sure man. If you're a person I can respect. Can you be that person, anon?
>implying being a woman ruins your reputation
What else? Reverse tranny?
Oh. For some reason I only heard it being directed at people like drag queens before.
Iva probably turned Croc into a girl once back in the days. It happened way back, when Croc was just a skinny brat without a devil fruit, when he was new to pirating. He must have felt cocky and attacked the revolutionaries. And you know how Iva punishes his attackers, right. By making them less cocky. Badumtish. Croc might have enjoyed it after a while. Even Sanji had an Okama phase. Eventually he got tired of it and asked Iva if he could have his old body back. The end.
Maybe he was a revolutionary at first, and that's how he found out about ancient weapons and poneglyphs.
>Hey you know that new pirate guy that is pretty infamous? He's a girl now
I don't think people in OP world would care about such a thing.
But that only makes him hotter
Maybe Crocodile cares
sure, to each their own I still find it less disturbing, than what happened to Alvida
Its fucking sir crocodile people give the woman some respect
I still prefer the he was a girl to start out with theory.
Will Alvida even be a threat. He hasn't done anything since becoming a babe. Oda gave her a strong devil fruit, if it weren't for haki. Let's make a Buggy crew vs strawhats rematch happen.
or she couldn't get no respect because everybody started calling her the sandy vagina so she had to turn back into a dude
Doesn't explain why Oda never shows his chest.
>Will Alvida even be a threat
Crocodile probably just has a dainty woman's hand after crossing Iva so he attached a hook over it to hide it. He was already shown as a kid so he couldn't have been born a woman.
New theory. Croc is Kuina.
>She survived the dreaded stairway of doom. Have her a scar along her face.
>Dragon's ship picked her up from the East Blue, as he is seen doing in Luffy's flashback.
>Iva turned her into a boy.
>Bonney made him older
>The seventh shichibukai wiped his memories of wanting to become a sword fighter. (only his attack "sables" remains of this old passion)
>learned about the ancient weapons from the revolutionaries
>He is revealed to be One Piece
didn't look much like a boy to me.
and if he was a boy, then >>101465790
Him as a kid is pretty agender
this is pretty gender nuetral, if a little bit feminine to me. I may be looking too hard though
I should have reserved >>101466371 's picture for you
That's okay, they are both my posts anyway.
Why does everyone want to fuck Croc
He strikes us as the charming dominant type.
he's the only one wo/man enough to penetrate Luffy
I think it's the same 2 or 3 people posting every time. But, >>101466980 put it best and his mysterious past
Also, has Croc ever seen Zoro?
You rather want people to talk about motherfucking Bogart? After a while, we will probably obsess over somebody else. I suggest Moria, since his picture is the first one piece related picture I found inside my image folder.
Yes, the unluckies provided him with a picture.
That's a pretty fly cape for a useless sack of fatass like him.
>only 3 strawhats can use haki
So much for the Pirate King's crew
Ah right. Well I think if he was Kuina he would have reacted in some way to seeing Zoro
Hey croc anon what do you think about Daz?
A shitload of Whitebeard Pirates didn't even know what haki IS.
Moria doesn't deserve any attention, his shadow on the other hand
>calling me Croc-anon
B-baka! It's not like I like it or a-anything!
Daz - I don't really have much of an opinion. His fruit's cool, but his design isn't striking to me. Sorry if it's boring. And no I don't ship them, and I don't ship pic related either
some random guys from WB's crew were able to defeat a pacifista in a single attack
>>only 3 strawhats can use haki
But he is a charming dominant type with a mysterious past.
Moria is just a shadow of his former self
Even his own zombies didn't listen to his orders in the beginning. Perona was better domme than him.
Lost to Kaido, what more do we need to know?
I'd rather we talk about Kaku
Enjoy talking to yourself
How can Croc still be this much of a narcissist when he got beat by a fucking nobody from the weakest sea?
I've heard One Piece's popularity is declining in Japan because they're bored with the Dressrosa arc.
He's definitely more interesting to talk about than Moria.
This picture hurts to look at
>wasting precious proteins like that
What a faglord
This series can decline in popularity for years and still be in the top ten. It's not like Dressrova is bad.
At least my husbando's been shown recently and will probably remain relevant
at most people are probably trying to let it build up so they don't deal with the endless suspense that this year is going to bring with all the fights and plot and crap
>bored with the Dressrosa arc.
I don't get it. Do the Japanese readers only like action? This arc is easily more exciting than Punk Hazard and its slow story progression. This arc has set up so many subplots already that will likely still continue past Dressrosa. This arc has plenty of action, though, so far. What OP needs more than anything is a direction in its plot. Hopefully with these subplots being introduced out the yin yang we'll get that.
A new volume hasn't come out this year, but it seems all 4 tankouban released last year comprise the top 4 most selling manga in Japan that year. So I don't see a problem.
How do you guys want his arc to play out? Misguided hero? Circumstantial adversary? Force of awesomeness? Dog-kicking Villain?
I think he's the end boss.
>always a storm at his back
>turns out he's holding up a constant supercell filled with old wrecks of his past competition, and when he feels like it, he stops the storm and just drops all the ships and weapons and cadavers and all sorts of shit on his enemies, before scooping them too into his collection
that would be so cool
I don't care what his role is.
I just want him to show up and end up being just as much of a stupid dumbass as Luffy, Garp and Ace.
If Dragon doesn't start falling asleep and picking his nose I'll be disappointed.
>stupid dumbass as Luffy, Garp and Ace.
I'm already laughing.
>tfw when the mother is the retard
I don't think so nigga
He may still have some of their traits but he's a keikaku master
i would expect him to be the black sheep of the family
Reverie arc... Let's see here.
>Blackbeard uses ancient weapons to kill all the kings of the world
>Vivi goes to ask Luffy for help

>A gate similar to the gates of justice open. Raftel is behind it
>"Go son, go get the One Piece!"
>Blackbeard absorbs everybody's fruit, goes after him.
>Luffy vs. Blackbeard fight on Raftel over the One Piece.
>Shanks dies at some point.
>Wanting to help Luffy
It just feels so unlikely
>Vivi goes to ask Luffy for help
She can stay right the fuck where she is. New World is too harsh for that girl.
>inb4 he hates the nobles because they hold most of the world's meat
This fanfiction sucks.
>what is logue town
Yeah one time before Luffy knew what a logia was. I think Dragon looked down on him for that
i appreciate the door idea, but i think it wont be used for Raftel
is everyone forgetting about Kong?
i think hes gonna die from Akainu so he can usurp his position, or some other traitor. Maybe Gorosei kill him off
Would he steal a zoan for himself?
Does he need it?
Would it be ridiculous?
probably not, and if he did he would be smart enough to wait for a mythical
Whether Luffy knows what a logia is + speculation on your part is pretty irrelevant. The only time they've been in close proximity, Dragon helped Luffy.
>is everyone forgetting about Kong?
The guy barely qualifies as a supporting character.
I just want to see him hit something.
Look at those fucking arms.
You're pulling shit out of your ass. You already have an example of Dragon helping Luffy, then you chose to frame that example with some purely speculative bullshit like "he looked down on him for that".
Did he skip leg day too?
>what the fuck is leg day
He's sat behind a desk so we don't know, but I hope that.
Hopefully he isn't as bad as Jesus of the BB's.
Oda said Luffy's mom would be strict/not beautiful/have a perm if she ever showed up.
Though he might've been bluffing or that design went to Dadan.
>Luffy won't join
>Robin wants to fight
>Dragon eventually turns some of the crew to join Robin with individual talks, preying on their hangups in their past, and a sense of revenge, and convinces most of the crew it seems to at least help
>Dragon tries to convince Luffy some more, but after realizing he's been messing with the crew, and his friends, gets in a fight with his Dad
>Dragon's had enough, and finally just flies off with Luffy to reveal was actually is at the end of the Grand Line
>Arrive at Raftel, it's just an old empty fortress
>no weapons, no treasure, no anything
>it's essentially a dead island, with a few trees and a busted up house
>there is no treasure of One Piece, so Luffy can just stop searching for it, and join a proper cause already
The point here is to rip off one of the two big hangups of the whole journey, Luffy made a promise to not find out what was at the end of the road, but now he's been forced to.
>Luffy still refuses, he still wants to go
>Dragon's like 'fuck this' and just locks Luffy up until he plays along, (and to not tell his crew what's going on or whatever)
>finally, he realizes that hat is still driving him too, with the promise to come back to Shanks with it
And here's the other hangup
>sets it down just out of Luffy's reach, and tells him about dreams worth having, and fancies not worth a thing
>lights the hat on fire, as a lesson to how fragile a dream not worth having can be
>locks Luffy's door as he's screaming, and lets him know when he's done being a spoiled child, he can join his father in the New World he's about to make
>Luffy's crew sets off in various boats to the Reverie, unaware of what's going on, and we see the door to Luffy's Room in the final page of the chapter, as pained howling pours out of the cracks
One Piece will return in One Month.
There was a joke made a while back when we knew nothing about Ace and the Admirals that Luffy's mom was really a Marine Vice Admiral, and she and Dragon were divorced, and this whole Revolution thing boiled over from a fight over who got to keep what in the fallout.
This fucking pasta again..
Don't worry, the point is Luffy's not really concerned about being spoiled for the end result plus Raftel has some extra secrets Dragon didn't know about anyway And when he meets Shanks, he still gets a hug because "It was just an old hat Luffy. I'm glad you made something of yourself anyway."
Why didn't Kaido, Big Mom and Shanks try to stop Blackbeard from ascending to Yonko?
I think he's already stronger than them
Dragon cares about Luffy. He always looks to the east, follows the news and aids him in his journey to a certain extent. He wished for Luffy to learn the truth about this world. He will certainly ask Luffy to join his cause at one point when he deems him ready.
I hope Blackbeard keeps on being a complicated villain, not just some guy who's evil.
He's basically a Machiavellist Luffy.
Big Mom and Kaidou don't seem to care much.
Roger wouldn't lie to Whitebeard about One Piece and he already exclaimed that it exists during the war, which I'm sure Luffy must have heard.
Anything else, Dragon kidnapping Luffy, burning the hat, etc, sounds good to me. Unless the hat is the key to reach Raftel.
Look at him in that pic. That's a kid that wants to take revenge on the world by becoming the greatest motherfucker there ever was.
The point is Dragon is missing an important part of what Raftel is because of this or that tool or key, he just went there, didn't have them, concluded nothing was there, was able to show that nothingness to Luffy and go back.
Dragon's goals aren't there, and he feels the journey is more important for Luffy to go and see the world and then come to Dragon on his own. It's why he was so upset when he didn't really fuck up shit in Marineford, any deviation from 'I see how terrible the world is I have to stop it' is a distraction. His dream of Revolution's overrunning the dreams of others, and it's sort of a parallel to Absolute Justice. Dreams at the expense of others, dreams with an overbearing sense of pride, that you can't have anything messing with your dream from happening right here, right now, in the way you wanted it.
So when Luffy's like 'well good luck with all that' Dragon takes it poorly and thinks 'if I show him how pointless this is he has to join me, I'm too right to be put off for a while'. The Raftel he never properly explored is just an extension of that blindness.
>Luffy's broken, his hat's burned to ashes
>door busted open
>"Thought I'd find you here. Looks like your old man wasn't kidding. Anyway, you can stay here and mope... or we can bring the pain to him, together."
>"...why would you want MY help?"
ZEHAHAHAHAHAHAAA~ All part of the PLAN, boy!
Whose stronger? The three original admirals or garp? That is the question
Now I want it. I CRAVE IT. If BB becomes some sort of ally or friend to Luffy, if only for a few minutes, Oda will be the king of plot twists
Killing dreams isn't even that difficult. All you have to do is make people forget about them.
And the irony in all that is, to stir the world upside down, Luffy just has to reach Raftel and unite the four seas using One Piece(the knowledge of how the WG shaped and changed the world doing the Void Century, possibly also blueprints to another ancient weapon).
