I apologize for lack of discussion last week so I will do both chapters at once. last chapters conclusion blow the freaking roof of the building. Not only did we get the reassuring of a possibility of Luffy vs Smoker and at the same time introduced to a whole new type of creature, A F#$@ing Dragon. As a One Piece fan I did not anticipate this coming but not surprised of the possibility. Now lets get on with these weeks mindblowing chapters.
Wa-No-Kuni (The Country of Harmony)
An interesting revaluation, one of my most favorite warriors of the old ages are the Samurais. They are by far one of the coolest and most badazz warriors of the human race. Honor, strength and above all loyalty are the way of these warriors. These warriors are known to be the most vicious and would literally slice each other apart if in a duel. And now we got a hint of their appearance in One Piece. These samurai warriors are so strong that not even the marines want to mess with them which tells us that we might see Zoro and Brook going head to head with these samurais. As we know Zoro and Brook are the only swordsman of the Strawhat.
Ussop has brought back his old cowardliness back, but not in a serious manner. It is just Ussop’s personality who reacts the way he does to danger, but ultimately he is a warrior that if provoked will blast you off. I can see Ussop when he is older, as a goofy character that always avoids danger but is insanely strong, sort of how Jiraiya is in Naruto series except Ussop has that coward goofy instead of Jiraiya’s perverted goofy manner. Another thing to take note from this Wa-No-Kuni revaluation is how much knowledge Brook has of the Grandline, he is by far the most experienced and oldest of the crew. Brook in away has become a very favorable character as long as he does not do those Bone jokes, but the joke he did this week was funny. You Rang!
Smoker the White Hunter
A lot is expected from us of Smoker’s character, we have made him into a big figure and many find him to be the possible archrival of Luffy. His accomplishments are ones not to be underestimated, he has already received the title of Vice-Admiral and so far we really have not seen how exactly the admirals or the ranking works in the marine system. I would guess it is due to power, knowledge and connections in the ranks that can get you to go up the ranks. Nonetheless Smoker is a vice-admiral and in charge of a whole war ship.Overall last weeks chapter was very entertaining from Nami’s creating cloud road to the introduction of dragons.
Chapter 656: Dragon Slayers
To be honest, I was so mad when Luffy and Zoro killed the dragon because I was hoping that Luffy would want to tame it and make it his pet like he did with the kraken. How cool would that been Luffy roaming the skies with the baddest beast of them all. I was so mad because I thought that the Dragon was so rare, maybe because there is so few of them, and now Luffy and Zoro slayed one which by the way gave them a good beating. But the teamwork of Luffy, Zoro and Ussop was outstanding in this chapter; they hardly had to say anything to know what the other person was thinking. For example, all Zoro had to do was yell Ussop’s name for Ussop to understand what he wanted.
But going back to the Dragon, a couple of weeks ago we learned about Poseidon and now we know that Dragons exist in the world of One Piece, the possibilities are endless when Oda is involved. Which by the way I love the Dragon, the design was that of a goofy classic dragon instead of the scary and serious dragon design. But the way the dragon looks is interesting because he has a huge body and his neck is very thick while his legs/arms are so small compared to his huge body. It would make sense because the dragon did have wings so his real environment is the sky, it is basically Biology 101, if you don’t need it don’t have it is the basic concept of evolution. But as fast as the dragon was introduced he was gone because unfortunately for the dragon he stumbled upon two of the craziest guys: Luffy and Zoro.
Luffy and Zoro “The brothers of Destruction
Luffy did something that caught my attention, it was almost as if he could do the same move as Sanji where he can walk on air. But it might be just him jumping up so high and Zoro’s neck power is beyond normal now, I mean to be able to cut of the head off a dragon is no easy task. But These two badazz guys will cause destruction where ever they go and it is even worst with Sanji with them because than Zoro and Sanji end up fighting and all hell breaks loss. But whats with the the legman.
Now the people who knocked out Nami and the rest of the Strawhat work for a certain person. My theory is that this person is the shichibukai legman was talking about. Because you can tell that the people who abducted the Strawhats would not normally do this as to they said since it is just pirates no one would notice they are gone. Nonetheless, it is very mysterious and interesting on who exactly this master of theirs is, who ever he is, he is some one who experiments on people or is doing with people that is sinister. whatever the matter is, all we know is that this master of theirs wants people and that half of the Strawhats are in a sticky situation.
I think that legman can control the dragon because his lower half was attached to the dragon’s head. It could be an experiment done by the shichibukai that man was yelling about. The last time we saw the shichibukai we know that there were two seats that needed to be filled and by know the world government had to fill those seats to balance the overall power of the world. So three chapters after the strawhats leave for the New World we are teased with the possibility that the Strawhats might be facing a Shichukai very soon. And it seems like this one is a very sinister one, might be a mad scientist that likes to experiment on people. The person with the gas suit says that it wouldn’t matter if it is just pirates. What did he mean? Are there more dragons? Who is the half bodied man? So many questions, all I can say is that hold on to your seat because we are barely in the New World and things are already kicking off.
