Its another day with another One Piece chapter, overall it was a very enjoyable chapter to read though not much happens in this chapter other than that the battle field is set now and the Strawhats are still running. It is pretty obvious of who is going to face who. So with out further or due lets get on with this weeks chapter.
Chopper “The Genius” Doctor
I know that this is early to say but I believe that Chopper will become the best doctor in the Grandline (Obviously). For one he has a genius mind when it comes to medicine. For instance, he has created many potions that can help him and his friends and I would go so far as to say that he is a better Doctor than Law. Law is a Doctor in his own right, but he is a specialists, and his field is Surgery. I do not think that he is as intelligent in the field of medicine as Chopper, because Chopper is not a specialists. For one he learned how to create more improved medicine while he was in his training and he has to take care of Luffy, Zoro, and Sanji, who make a big mess of themselves after they battle someone. So in my opinion, I believe that Chopper is a better Doctor than Law and a better Scientists than CC because given the time, he was able to get a grasp to figure a cure for the children or something on those lines.
CC and Virgo “The Clowns”
I can not take CC and Virgo seriously anymore, their personalities are too much of a clown. For one, CC name is literally Clown Caesar, who panics so easily. Usually the villain is a calm and collective type, who always thinks he has the upper hand. But than again this is One Piece, and what do you know, we have Virgo who is a calm and collective type, but he is a clown in his own right. I mean for god sakes, how does someone forget a spoon on their face. However, this could be a trait to his Ability that he can some what magnetize things and since he eats he involuntarily magnetizes food to his face. Also, it seems that he has a habit of forgetting things. When Virgo said that he will “Crush those stupid brats”, my reaction was ‘wow we got mr. badazz here, but he got a spoon on his face.’ I on other hand still have hopes for Virgo to be one of the most badazz character we have seen since the new start of One Piece. I miss the old days where the villain was so badazz that you almost want to rot for them.
Like Aizen and Orochimaru from Bleach and Naruto, respectively. These two characters are so badazz, that some times I find myself rotting for them to win. And if you look back on One Piece history there has been some badazz villains. For instances, Enal, Crocodile, Arlong and etc. These are some badazz villains, and I feel that lately One Piece has been lacking these type of characters that will be talked about long after their spot light time. But I feel that once CC is defeated, he will be hardly talked about like Hody Jones. But than again this is only the begin of the ‘New World’ part of One Piece and I just might be jumping to conclusion. And so far we have been only reading minor arcs, there has not been a major arc which I feel that this Punk hazard arc will lead to a major arc, like a war with a Yonko arc.
It was a sentimental moment that I must say has moved me. The G5, 01 branch have shown how much they respect and love their Captain Tagashi. While not much is known about the G5 other than that they are brutal Marines, but this chapter has lead me to believe that they are the best marines, in the sense that they are respectable towards humanity. The Marines are one of the major antagonist of One Piece, but there are some exclusions to this fact, for instance, Coby is a Marine who wants extinguish evil. The Marines want the same thing as Coby, but they also have the purpose of adding the order to the world, though at a cost of using an Iron Fist style, sort of a dictatorship.
One of the themes of One Piece is that Piracy is not as negative as history set it out to be. It is a symbol of freedom, and adventure. While, Governments are the cruel and cause of suffering. But piracy is known to hurt people, and governments are used to set the right order. However, Oda has done such a good job to show that even though a government is need, it will eventually become as cruel and evil, becoming what it was fighting against. But in One Piece we see that because of the Government, people are enslaved and countries grow hungry and poorer. But the ironic thing is that the savor of all the suffering is a boy who becomes a pirate. The same thing that the Marines and the Government label as the evil of the world. But there are negatives and positives on both sides. And the G5 have shown that they are as righteous and caring towards their friends as the Strawhats. In just one panel the G5 Marines show the bravery and realism of a sacrifice for the love and respect of the people they love.
- Law showed that he can teleport in some ways. If you look on page 13 of the chapter, you can see that Law in some ways appears instantly in the next panel(From Right to left panel).
- It was a badazz scenario to see Brook, Zoro, and Kinemon use their swordsmenship at once. It would be a very interesting paring if Kinemon would join the Strawhats. But that’s just wishful thinking.
- I was hoping that the reunion of Tagashi and Zoro would be longer and has its own story. But will all the chaos happening, it is not surprising.
- Dragon will become the pet of Nami, just wait and she will have that Dragon doing so many errands.
- It was Monet who sent the letter to Chopper. I have said before that she could be a double agent to the marines, but it is also possible that she is working with Law.
