A very interesting chapter with so much going on that you will feel like you just read a whole book. In just about 17 pages, Oda was able to progress the story and leave us scratching our head about just what the hell is going on. Dragons, angels, bodiless samurai and giant babies. So I will try to answer the questions.
Slay it and Eat it
Ussop has become so much stronger than he was two years ago, in physical sense. Out of the whole crew Ussop was the weakest in physical and hand to hand combat. But now he was dragging that huge chunk of dragon meat around. I have always wonder what Ussop would do if he lost all of his weapons in a fight? Would he be able to fight in a fist fight? The answer is simple, he can but he is not as strong as Luffy or Sanji in hand to hand combat, though I believe he can hold his ground now in a fist fight. Luffy claims that Ussop has no creative, on the contrary Ussop is probable the most creative person in the crew. He has art as well as engineering skills and his battles are the funniest and most of them are all about tactics than anything else.
We have seen just about every thing in One Piece, I would like to challenge anyone to name a Manga/anime that has just as much creative and diverse breeds of character as One Piece does? Humans, mini giants, giants, huge giants, fishman, merman, sky people, animals of all kind and new kinds, dragons, angels, you get what I mean. It is impossible to limit the creativity of Oda and now he has given us a huge tease of another new breed of characters. The most interesting thing is that the only one who noticed that angel figure was Ussop. It could be because Ussop has the best eye site in the Strawhats. He can see things far away that a normal human cannot see, in a sense he has eyes like a bird. But what exactly is a dragon and angel doing on this very mysterious island?
I have said it before that the New World will blow our minds away and already it has shown how mysterious and entertaining this new world is. Many are theorizing that this island is the Island the two admirals have fought on, which would make perfect sense. Since Admiral Aokiji power is Ice while Admiral Akainu power is of magma. And the island is separated into two separate weathers/environment: One of fire and one of Ice and also if you remember that when Luffy first entered Punk Hazards there was a base very similar to a military base. But this theory has one contradiction; Smoker has stated that the island has been locked off since “that” incident happened FOUR years ago, and the fight between the admirals only happened two years ago.
This island is so strange is because I believe that this new Shikiabakia (warlord) is a mad scientist that has experimented on this island for so long that the environment and landscape of the island has changed. It is just too strange for all these very bizarre things to just so happen to be on just one island, so the only logical thing is that some mad scientist uses this island as his base of operation where he experiment on everything and everyone he can get his hands on. I came up with this theory once I saw the giant kids. Because what are a bunch of kids doing on this island? It could be that they are the inhabitains, but they were in the same base where the Strawhats were being held, it might be that this “master” of the guys that kidnapped the Strawhats was trying a new experiment on the giant kids.
A bodiless Samurai
So this bodiless samurai is from that legendary land of wa, where the strongest samurai reside. But its only his head, how can someone live with just his head? Like I said again and again nothing is impossible in One Piece. But back to the topic, I think that the legman who is stuck to Luffy now is actually that samurai who is with Sanji, but his body is separated into different parts. His head is with Sanji, his legs with Luffy, now where is his upper body, this is what gave me the idea that who ever sliced him has the ability to cut some one but not kill, that they are able to separate the person without harming them. I would assume that this person is not a samurai because the bodiless samurai did not recognize him when he had fought him. This also could be the works of the Shichibuka, or it could which is most likely be the works of law. Law has the power to separate peoples bodies into different sections, I would not be surprised if it Trafalgar Law was the one who separated the samurai into different parts. Mystery is the concept of this arc, we are being left of with so many questions than answers, things will defiantly take a turn in the New World.
- Women in the Samurai island seem to be the symbol of discipline and respect, but it was hilarious how Nami treated the samurai. But I agree with the Samurai about Nami being stripped of everything she had. For a girl that loves money, she surely wears almost nothing.
- Sanji was a boss in this chapter, he had that aura of a Leader around him. He out of Luffy and Zoro is more like a Captain. Luffy is too carefree, and Zoro doesn’t care. But Sanji would be a honorable Captain but loses easily to women.
- Brook is missing because the kidnappers did not think he was alive. He is still on the sunny.
- If you had not noticed but Mangastream.com has lost the ability to put up Naruto, One Piece, and Bleach chapters, all because Viz media had some issues with that. To me mangastream had the best translator and the clearest prints. It is a shame that VIZ media has put them down. Boycott VIZ media!!!
