I did not expect this fight to last this long, honestly I thought that it would be stopped half way by an out side interference. But I got to say, I am very impressed with Law, he took out a Vice-Captain and demolished a war ship and its crew. This guy is not to be messed with, and this chapter just made him go up the rankings in my book.
The Strong rule the Weak
I really liked how Law just made Tashigia look like a kid with a sword who has no knowledge of the sword. He is a well advised swordsman and seems to carry some sense of dominance in swordsmanship. However, he has the mind concept that the strong shall decide the fate of the weak. Which in away he is right, because when you are a swordsman or swords-women in this case, if you are considered the weak than you shall be accepted by what your superior decides for your fate. But that does not mean you can disrespect the weak, which Law clearly did to Tashigia, but he should of honored and respected how Tashigia was willingly wanting to be actually cut and die than to be cut in half and live. Because she, first showed courage when attacking him and when wanting to die by his hand, but I think that Law wanted to teach Tashigia a lesson because he saw the potential, like how Hawkeye taught Zoro when they first had their battle.
Law vs Smoker
For starters, I was shocked that Smoker got his azz handed to him by Law, because my impression of Smoker was that he would become the ultimate challenge for Luffy. But I must say that the way Law handled Smoker was very impressively done. So now we got a whole chapter to analysis Law and Smokers abilities. Lets start with Smoker first:
In the Blue corner: Smoker “The White Hunter” age:36, Rank: Vice-Amiral, Devil Fruit: Plume-Plume Fruit, Logia Type. A lot was expected from me of Smoker, but than again he was going against a Shichibukai. But he is one of the few that has ever beaten Luffy in a fight, so I assumed that he was very strong which he is. But like I said he was going against a Shichibukai which are some of the strongest pirates in the Grandline. There is not that much I can say about how he fights other than that he continuously is disappearing and reappearing somewhere else and he is more of the long range fighter. Nonetheless he is a fearsome fighter who held his ground against a Shichibukai for awhile and could of defeated him if he was more cautious of Law’s ability.
In the red corner: Trafalgar Law “The Surgeon of Death” Rank: Shichibukai, Bounty: 440,000,000 Beli, Operation Devil Fruit, Paramecia Type. At first glance Law is not that intimidating because he is so laid back that you would not take him for being one Badazz Pirate. Now last week we had a discussion on if Law is truly evil or he is just playing the part. I can honestly say that I cannot tell, because I think that deep down Law is a good guy, but does not show it, instead he has that evil persona. For example, take Blackbeard, who when first was introduce we all just thought that he was just an old man who had a good persona about him. But now he is considered one of the main villains. So for now Law will be in my book as a potential Bad/Good guy. But one thing I know for a fact is that he has impressed me and I personally enjoyed seeing his fight with Smoker. His power is just to mysterious that you spend more time thinking about how he fights than the actual fight.
For one he can substitute himself with the objects in his “Operation Room.” Look at when Smoker pinned him down and when Smoker struck him it turned out to be an ice block and Law reappeared behind Smoker. So in conclusion, when some one is in Law’s “Operation Room” the best thing for them to do is to get out of Law’s reach and fight from a distance. Now I know some of you had the idea that Ussop would be great to fight Law because Ussop is a long range fighter, but that theory is crushed now since Law can direct projected items back at the other person. Though I still have the impression that this is only the tip of Laws power and to not count out Smoker just yet, he could still can make a comeback. If he can take his heart back from Law, its kind of funny Law stole Smokers heart. Sounds corny but he just literally stole Smokers heart, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE IN ONE PIECE.
But the ending of this chapter leaves of with lots of questions than answers. When Luffy and Law first notice each other, you can see that Luffy is happy to see Law while Law looks unhappy. So does that mean we will see a Luffy vs Law battle or will Law be the man we all want and be a team player. I am routing for a Luffy vs Law battle, because we need to see Luffy go against a real challenge not some Fishman who is high on drugs. What I can tell is that Law’s “Operation Room” will not work on Luffy because Luffy is well advised in Haki power and plus he has Robin, Ussop and Zoro. So we must wait patiently to see what happens next on this much anticipated reunion.
- Luffy never ceases to amaze me, Him making “Brownbeard”(which by the way is conformed in this chapter, good job for those who noticed it mainly (Tensa Gizzla, Legendarykid, and Firefist), but talk about the ultimate disrespect act against a loser in a match, well Luffy knows the best way. It is already humiliating to lose in a fight but than to carry your superior opponent on your back is just wrong but hilarious.
- Law is definatly deserving to be called a Shichibukai (warlord). He is without the doubt one of the most badazz Shichibukai we have seen so far.
- What do you guys predict will happen between Luffy and Law.
- I KNOW I DID NOT TALK ABOUT MASTER M OR HAPPY MANO. It is because I will leave that for you guys to theorize, but short opinion: Is that Master M is the main mastermind behind this whole issue.
- Robin with her scary remarks was pretty funny.
