Hello again Boys and Girls, and we are giving a sweet gift of an early chapter. And do we get a sweet read of chapter or what. This chapter is the definition of epicness in the world of One Piece. A different and somewhat dangerous alliances are made, Luffy and Law set their plan into action, and what will be the outcome of these new events.
Before I get to this new alliance between Kid, Appo, and Hawkins, let me just break down the detail of the new world. For those who do not know there are two parts of the Grandline: the first half is referred to as Paradise and the Second Half is referred to as New World. Paradise is considered to contain the weakest and rookies of Pirates, while the New World consists of the most terrifying, evil and powerful of all Pirates. This is evident when Mora who is considered one of the most powerful pirates in Paradise, but when he sailed to the New World his whole crew was massacred by Kaido. This just goes to show that no matter how powerful a pirate is, once they step into the New World , they get themselves in a whole different world.
Just take a look at what has happened to Kid, his appearance has changed in a dramatic way. Scars cover his face, stomach, neck and his left arm seems to be amputated instead he has a robotic arm. When the Eleven Supernovas first arrived on Sabaody Archipelago, Kid was the highest in ranking based on his bounty and he is still has the highest bounty as well as the highest bounty to be ever revealed. The New World has pushed Kid so far that he has resulted in calling an alliance.
In the New World alliance are a common thing, if you were to look back at Paradise, every Pirate was independent. But the New World changes that, it makes a pirate tougher, meaner, and less likely to trust people. Take Crocodile for instances: His dream was once to be the next Pirate King, but after he gone up the rankings in the New World, he became self-centered and lost his dream of becoming Pirate King, and in fact he was sort of like Luffy in away when he first started out as a pirate, but like I said the New World does things to you; whether it will kill you or break you. Just like Law said the only way to survive in the New World is either: be taking under one of the Yonko, or make an alliance with other independent pirates. Which is exactly what Law and Kid had in mind. Law planned his alliance to be with Luffy, while Kid proposed an alliance with Appo and Hawkins.
Kid, Hawkins and Appo
Appo is really nervous of this new proposal of Kid, and seems to be very protective. But I think this is just for show, it is a message to Kid and Hawkins that he is saying, look I am not some punk that can be made into a subordinate, that I can take care of my own. Even though he has never said that, his actions speak for him. Also, this meeting is very tense because all three captains know that without this alliance their chance to go up the rankings in the New World is slime and they all hate this fact. But when this new Alliance is made, they will be one of the most notorious pirates. Kid has already taking on three of Big Mama’s ships, Hawkins and Appo have survived an attack from both an admiral and Shichibukai. The only question is for what purpose is Kid proposing this Alliance. It can be so that they can be stronger which is obvious or it could be the same purpose that Law has proposed to Luffy. It could be that Law and Kid are think of the same thing or is it that they are both on it together? Now that is the question.
Law Came through!
Like I said last week, Law planned ahead, but plan to the point of possibly being imprisoned by CC, and taking the measures of trading in normal chains with the Kairoseki chains. That I did not suspected, like he said, he has been living on Punk Hazard for months and he planned everything to perfection. And like I said before, there is one thing in his plan that he miscalculated, Luffy. Once Luffy was released of his chains, he already left the cage. But it was funny how Law was so shocked to see Luffy out of the cage, seriously they only way to get Luffy to listen up, is to have him in chains. He is a doer, and Law is a thinker, once they figure out their boundaries, this alliance between Law and Luffy will take them up the ranks. When Luffy, Law and Smoker are all stand side by side, for one purpose which is to take down CC and Virgo, they look like as if they they are best friends as if they have never been enemies before. In the near future, I can see that these three will team up again to take on a more ferocious of an opponent, but for now our heroes need to be on the winning side.
- Only Chopper and Franky are not with everyone.
- It is amazing that in how unrealistic the world of One Piece is, it can still be so realistic at the same time. When Sanji said that Nami’s body cannot take the constant running that he has been doing, proves that you need to train your body for each goal, but at the same time when he feels on Nami’s ‘body’ he gets a burst of energy that is utterly unnatural. (But it also explains why Sanji (in Nami’s body) has been the slowest)
- Zoro asked Kinemon if he can cut steal, but why did he not ask Brook?
- The broker with the Lincoln hat is closely similar to Rob Lucci the former member of CP9.
- This arc has been what all One Piece fans have been waiting for so long for, and each chapter is making it that sweeter to enjoy reading these chapters.
