One Piece Chapter 672- Respect Your Elders

After two weeks we finally get a hint at who this mysterious man is. The samurai finally gives his name to be Kinemon and shows off his skills, and our heroes are defeated except for Zoro, Sanji, Kinemon, Nami and Chopper. So with out ferther or do lets start of like how the chapter started.

Virgo is the Name

The mysterious man turned out to be none other than Virgo, which makes him even more mysterious because now I am and I know some of you are asking yourself, “who the hell is this guy?” Who  ever this guy is, he is no push over. He single handly defeated Law with very little easy. Now it could be because he caught Law off guard, but overall this guy is surrounded by mystery. From the way he dresses to the way fights, everything about him is a mystery and he has only being introduce in this chapter and I already have so many question as to what this guy is. For starters let me just give you an over view of what we know about this guy.

One thing we know for sure is that Virgo some what knows Law really good. Almost as if they know each other from long ago. He mocking congratulates law on his new position as Shichibukai, suggesting that he does not favor the shichibukai. Another thing to note about him is that he has an ideology of ‘respect your elders’, as he corrects law that the ‘adults’ will always know his secrets. Which leads me to believe that Virgo is a man who dislikes kids, in fact I think he has an issue toward younger people, and especially those who do not refer to their elders by their rightful title. Now he attacks law in a very violent and mysterious way, the bamboo stick density turned into a much harder substances, his wrist and hand also turned into the same hardened material as the bamboo. His ability is very similar to Luffys Haki ability. Now I cannot tell if Virgo is with the Marines or is a pirate, from his history with Law I am leaning towards that he is a pirate, but at the same time from the way he dresses and talks leads me to think that he is Marine. Who ever this guy is, he is mean and does not play nice.

Luffy’s Out

If this has come as a shocker for you that Luffy was defeated by the villain, than you have not been paying much attention to One Piece. In fact, this does not come as a shocker for me, if you look back when Luffy first encountered his first big challenge which was going against Crocodile, he lost twice to Crocodile before finally defeating him. So Caesar beating Luffy does not shock me but makes me wonder what exactly did Caesar do to knockout Luffy, Robin, Franky, Smoker, and Tashigi. It could be that he uses his gas-gass ability to knockout his opponents, which makes sense. But there is still something very unclear on how he fights, all and all Luffy is in big trouble, because Caesar has his eyes set out on experiment on them.

 My Name is “FireFox” Kinemon from the Samurai island

I am starting to really like this Kinemon, he is funny, honorable, and a badazz swordsman. One thing I really like about him is that he is not afraid to admit he is wrong, and will thank those that help him. He went so far as to bow in front of Sanji (in Nami’s body) and thank him from the bottom of his heart. It just goes to show that Kinemon has a kind heart and he has a sense that family is everything. He went as far as leaving his country and challenged a Shichibukai to get back his son back. Another interesting thing about Kinemon is how he fights. His sword can cut through any flames, he has a devil fruit and I am guessing since he is a Samurai that his swordsmanship is top notch. Which even catches the attention of Zoro, who is a man that is not easily impressed. Nonetheless this chapter has asked more questions than answered them, in turn makes it that more interesting to see what will happen next.

Side Note:

  • What will happen to Luffy and Co?
  • Who will come to their rescue?
  • Sanji was using haki will being swimming in the water and he was in Nami’s body. But I believe that he and Zoro have the Kings Haki.
  • Zoro is only impressed by strength. This guy knows thing but to fight.
  • So Brooks freezing ability did not work against the slime.

Bleach Chapter 498:

Chapter 498: The Black Rescuer
Read Chapter

The Science boys are looking for Ichigo finding his badge in the real world but Kurosaki isn’t. They find him in Hueco Mundo. Via the tracking of spirit particles they figured out Kisuke helped him out and decide it is alot easier to grab hold of him instead.

I love this next bit of Kisuke talking to Akon here. Kisuke being his usual self pissing off Akon like mad. Ofcourse Kisuke is fully aware of the trouble in SS but he doesn’t know how bad yet. He informs AKon that Ichigo is in combat with the Quincy.

Akon and co-workers are shocked. Wondering how Ichigo would know about Hueco Mundo… well Ichigo know Nell-tu… nuff said! Akon asks how the battle is going and Urahara gives us some good news. Ichigo had the upper hand in this battle.

The chapter switches to the awesome battle. Opie tries to use the medallion to steal his bankai but it fails. With a comment on last weeks summary I reckon the fullbring pitch is more likely than the hollow one but I reckon this will be made clear in due time.

Kisuke hasn’t seen them in action, so he notes quite calmly the Opie failed to seal his bankai. This obviously sends a big WTF to everyone in the Research Department. I love Kisuke just sitting totally chilled out why Pesche and Don Don are freaking out! That frame just cracked me up. We know Kisuke is a shady figure indeed. He will, no doubt, play a bigger role in things to come.

Opie on the other hand is not relaxed at all. hell, I think a bit of despiration is kicking in as he tries to anylize the situation. For a man who feels superior to Hollow and Shinigami this is quite a kicker for him.

I thought Opie was quite informed about Ichigo but that doesn’t seem to be the case at all. All he knows what he shouldnt let Ichigo use bankai(mission failed) and that his bankai couldnt not be ‘Medalized’ as he calls it. No more. He can’t grasp why, even absorbing the power of the Aion, Ichigo is keeping up with him.

Opie seems only able to dodge barely able to dodge Ichigo’s attack. His own attack’s failing to damage his target. Opie tries to rethink his strategy but Ichigo’s pure speed in Bankai is the Quincy’s Achilles heel. Ichigo asks the magic question.

Are they afraid of Bankai? Opie doesn’t seem able to mix certain abilities at the same time. Having to put most of his power into speed trying to keep up with Ichigo leaving him to little to properly attack him.

Opie’s pride is overpowering counter attacking the question screaming the indoctrinated lingo as dictated by the King, no doubt. Kisuke butts in, blasting through Opie’s gut. He wastes no time throwing his phone to Ichigo. He already prepared a Senkai gate for Ichigo to use. Knowing how dire the situation is he switched instantly knowing what has to be done.

The chapter end with Ichigo about the be overloaded with information.
