What an exciting chapter we got this week as exciting as it was, it ended right at the most exciting part. Leaving us with the need and addiction of want to read the next chapter. I must say, Oda has been out doing himself lately, he took us from a slow and some what boring arc of Fishman to this exciting non-stop action arc of Punk Hazards. And what a great cliffhanger we are left of with, nonetheless lets talk about this weeks mesmerizing chapter.
Sanji is the Man of Men
To me Sanji out of the ‘Monster Trio’ gets the worst of things. For example, Luffy is the captain, the badazz, and the strongest, Zoro is the first-mate, second-in-command and considered the second strongest, and than we have Sanji the Cheif, huge Women fanatic, and never gets what he wants. My point is that Sanji in some ways has been over shadowed as a character when he is considered one of the ‘Monster Trio’. I know a lot of you will yell at me for saying this, but Sanji should not of been considered one of the Monster Trio. Now let me explain; look at Luffy and his arsenal of attacks as well as Zoro, even though Sanji has a huge arsenal of attacks, his power was not as exciting as the other two; Luffy has a devil fruit and Zoro is a swordman. While Sanji just literally throws kicks around.
Look at it this way, when Sanji was first introduced he would fight in like a brake dancing style, than he escalated to a more MuyThai/ karate fighter. In the Sky arc he was literally fried by Enal, in the Thrille Bark arc he faught a weakling, do you get at what I am Saying? I am not saying that Sanji as a character is boring but that he is over looked by Oda when compared to the other of the Monster Trio. And to be honest with you guys Sanji is by favorite out of the others because he is sort of like a mesh of Luffy and Zoro into one body. He has Luffy’s guffiness and Zoro seriousness, but he is at a great balance between the two. While he is guffy at time, he becomes serious when needed be. Over all I think that Sanji is finally getting the rightful spot light he is deserving. Heck he took Nami’s body and in about three chapters created her into becoming one badazz chick. Another thing that Sanji shows this chapter is that he has this some what Honor in his word, like how he is going to extreme measures just to get back the Samuria’s body back since he promised the Samuria.
Luffy Vs CC
Clearly this is a no brainer, Luffy mops the floor with CC. He was fast, stronger and more agile than CC. Now it could be that CC was not going all out, but I think that he was actually doing his best. For one he pulled his strongest moves which was the Slime that in some ways he can control its movements and command it to explode as well as sending out his gas to poison Luffy. Who has produced an extreme tolerance to poison ever since he was poisoned by Mangelle. So his Slime could not do anything against Luffy and his Gas-Gas ability is useless since Luffy’s body can cancel out the poison, but CC had one big Ace up his sleeve.Before we get to that, did you notice how angry CC got when his Devil Fruit was compared to Mangelle, this leaves me to think that CC sees the Logia as the most powerful devil fruit. But a weapon is only as strong as its wielder. A guy with a gun can be defeated by a guy with a sword. Going back to CC Ace in the hole, I think that CC has some what tampered with Luffy’s body, for one CC is not as strong as Luffy, in fact Luffy defeated him in every way, but CC has one big advantage which is that CC is a mad genius who is more of the tactical type then the brute strength type.
The Mystery Man in the Shadows
This mystery man that shows himself at the end could be anyone, it could be Dr. Vega Punk, Joker, some one from the marines or some one from Law past years. It could be Dr. Vegapunk (but very unlikely) because Vegapunk shares them same sadistic love for extreme experiments. But this is very unlikely because CC and Vegapunk have a rivalry and CC holds a grudge against Vegapunk. Now it is most likely this Joker guy we have heard about from CC and Law, because it seems that Law has some history with this mysterious person and that they know each other very well. But one thing really struck me is the type of shoes the mysterious man was wear. He is clearly wear shows that are high end and that they men that wear suit wear those type of shows. So far the high ranking Marines always wear a suit and they almost all wear the same shoe. This is what makes me to believe that this mysterious man is one from a very high ranking system of the Marines.Side Notes:
- Who is this mysterious man?
- Do you guys think that Luffy is done for the count?
- One Piece is on a break next week.
- Brooks joke was pretty funny.
