Hopefuly everyone had a happy New Years and what a new way to start the new year of One Piece by having a chapter with the title of “Grim Premonitions”, it is very clear that Oda has given us a hint on what to expect this year from his amazing work of One Piece. So lets get on with dissecting this information/action packed chapter.
Conservation between the God of the Sea and the Knight of the Sea.
A very interesting conversation indeed; one Jinbe is that I am about 80% certain will be ending up joining luffy and second Neptune will most likely be ending up represent the flag of the Strawhat and have their protection. The things to take into account is that the fact that Jinbe has no choice now but to remove his ties with Big Mama, but will he go and join luffy after? The puzzling part is that in this chapter we got the fact that the Sun pirates still exists and it is also still under the command of Jinbe. So will Jinbe leave the Sun Pirates and join luffy? Very unlikely but also possible at the same time. The only way we will get an answer to this question is in the future. Second, Neptune wants to flag the Strawhat Pirates flag shows how much respect and powerful the Strawhats have become.
The Strawhats a league of their own.
This idea of Pirates claiming islands as their territory is a new aspect in One Piece. We first got this aspect of One Piece back when Jinbe was first introduced. But it makes perfect sense, think about Pirates are like gangs in our days, whether it’s the Mafia, Yakuza, Triads, Cribs, Nor Tenos, and all the gangs in the world, but in One Piece its Strawhat, Big Mama, and etc. The point is that both claim a land or island in this case as their territory and if one was to step over the boundary there will be war. Now the Strawhat Pirates have become so influential that they can claim islands to be their territory and Fishman Island will be the first of many islands to have the crossbones and a skull wearing a Strawhat as their flag. You guys might think that I am given the Strawhat too much credit but I will prove to you how powerfully they have become.
Achievements of the Strawhats
Their captain is the strongest man in east blue, was able to defeat two Shichibukai, CP9 with the help of his crew, which consisted of only a hands full of people. Caused huge chaos and confusion to the marines and is one of the most wanted Rookies. The strawhats were able to take one 100000 Fishman Pirates and defeated them with only miner scratches. Their captain is the son of the most wanted man in the Grandline, who is the son of the hero of the marines. The list can go on and on. But the main point here is that they have become well known pirates that even got the attention of one of the Four Emperors. Which brings me to the next topic, Big mama’s crew.
Pekoms worth 330,000,000?
Pekoms shows us his strength this week and it is not to be taking lightly. For one he defeated Caribou with one hit, second he has a Zoan type Devil Fruit, and he also knows haki. This cat is one badazz man/lion, and he also has one of the highest bounty to be shown just under Jinbe and luffy’s bounty. This means trouble for our heroes because Pekoms seems like one of the low ranked crew in his crew or maybe one of the highest, nonetheless this is not good for the Strawhats because if Pekoms is capable of defeating a logia type and has a high bounty than what are the other crew members capable of?
Vice admiral Smoker and Captain Tashigi
So Smoker has become a Vice Admiral, not surprising because of his ability. But the surprising thing is Tashigi because she has become more curvy. When she was first introduced she was not as curvy and had that nerdy look to her, but now she looks like she can compete with Nami and Robin in curvy. But that is not the only thing that she has improved in her ability in swordsmanship has escalated. She also has this love/hate relationship with Zoro and resembles Zoros childhood friend that pasted away. But she has very different ways of doing this from Zoro, hes a pirate she is a Marine, he slices but she deflects cannons. So in a way they are very different. But one thing is for sure is that Luffy and Zoro will be seeing and possibly be fighting Smoker and tashigi very soon.
- The bomb in the treasure will start the war between Strawhat vs Big Mama.
- Caribou seems to be like the clown that gets punched around, but his Gatling gun was awesome.
- I was expecting Nami to react the way she did.
- G5 sounds like a bunch of no good marines that are the roughest marines, but I highly doubt what the rumors say about them being cannabises.
- The skit between Ussop and Shirahoshi was pretty funny, never notices Ussop being such a gentleman as to he apologized right away.
- Expect a adventure never before from One Piece this Year because it is now that we will truly see our heroes struggle and achieve greatness.
