A hilarious and exciting chapter we have this week, packed with action, mystery and of course humor. It just amazes me how Oda incorporates action and comedy so well together. He makes it that One Piece is never lacking of humor. Especially this chapter with the confrontation between Smoker, Law and Sanji and Co. But I will get to that later.
It is not the first time that we have seen people frozen solid in an almost refrigerator like room. All the way in the Thriller Bark where Gekko Moriah had ancient warriors frozen for his experiments. Well I believe that the room Nami and Chopper stumbled upon is used for the same purpose by Law and that gas-like figure in the flask. It could be that Law captures strong warriors where they are preserved in ice so that the gas-like figure can experiment on them later on. It would make sense since those man in the gas-masks kidnap people so that the gas-like figure (who is called Master M by his man) can do his experiments. Also, Law is a doctor and has a history of being a very cruel person that shows no mercy to any one. So Law the doctor of death and Master M a mad scientist, it is a perfect combination of evil experiments and Punk Hazards is a perfect place for them to do their experiments.
So far we have seen Centaurs, for those who do not know what Centaurs are here is a quick summary: A centaur is in Greek and Roman mythology is half man and half horse, a hybrid creature. And now those guys in the gas suit are satyr like creature. A satyr is a body of a man and lower half is of goat in Greek mythology. Again Oda has incorporated Greek mythology into his work. But are these hybrids natural or the cause of Master M? I think that these people who are hybrids are a successful experiment done by Law and Master M. For one Law has the ability to disassemble and assemble anything he chose, but those separate parts are independent of each other and only obey the original body.
As in the case of the samurai his body is separated into three different parts: His legs are with Luffy, Head with Sanji and his torso is with Brook. But all those parts are commanded by the Samurai. So it leads to the conclusion that these Centaurs and Satyrs are not just the work of Law but had the help of Master M. Think about it, if Law separated a Giraffe lower body and attached it to the upper body of a man, the Giraffe’s lower half would fallow the Giraffe and same thing with the man. But these centaurs and Satyr’s can freely move their bodies. So this is what made me come up with the theory that Law would separate and assemble different parts of humans and animals and Master M some how makes these bodies synchronize perfectly. Why would they want to do this, well it is simple, to create an army of hybrids of man and animals. So far they got Satyr to do their bidding.
Law Vs Smoker
A match between Warlord and a Vice-Admiral, a match never seen before in One Piece, and a match that will probably never be seen again. Smoker a logia user vs Law a swordsman with a very mysterious ability. Smoker’s ability do not need to be explained because it is simple, he is the element of smoke. While Law has a devil fruit that is one of the most mysterious one of all. He is able to create a room and can do practical anything he wishes, and is able to cute people with his sword with out harming them, but the biggest weakness of this ability is that it seems that he is unable to move while using this ability as he needs to be concentrating on what he is doing. But it will be a very interesting fight to see him take on a Logia fruit user. They only way I see Law winning is that if he knows how to use Haki, and the only way I see Smoker winning is that if he can counter Law’s ability. Nonetheless it will be a match to talk about for ever, if it ever happens.
- It was funny seeing Nami and Chopper scared of the frozen people, it is good known that Chopper and Nami still have that pussycat personality because it creates many funny moments.
- So far I am liking the Samurai, I just want him to get back into his body so we can see how he will hold up to Zoro.
- Sanji acting like a kid this week was hilarious, the samurai sure made Sanji look like a fool.
