OsjkNldfEhwPuiIakEjefCndaEsd…Did you get that, well that is as confused as I am after this chapter. So many things happen in the span of only 18 pages that I find myself think of one event to the other. Every character, every theme, every event that is in this Arc is involved in this chapter. This is my favorite part about One Piece, that Oda involves almost all of his main characters in the chapter. He does not only focuses on one character, only when it is needed. But for now lets get on with this weeks chapter.
I am really enjoying Monet’s character because she is as cunning, beautiful and mysterious as Nami and Robin were in their introduction. Another strength that goes into One Piece is for its strong female roles. One thing manga(Japanese Comics) is criticized for in the west, that most of the females are portrayed as these impossibly busty woman who most of the time are there just to keep fans happy. For example, for some reason almost every female character in Bleach has a very lets say immense chest. Naruto, is one of the most criticized manga out there for its poor female roles and that most of the females are well like I said busty. And do not get me started on Fairy Tale, every female that is above the age of about 16 has a bust that most woman would die to have. One Piece is no different in this trait, the curves on Nami and Robin are…well not possible. Nonetheless Oda still keeps his female characters actually relevant and powerful at the same time, and in some ways keeps their dignity. I mean Nami is one of the most famous character other than just her looks, it is her ferocity that keeps her in some ways real and original.
Like I said, Monet is becoming a very interesting character. I believe that she has a logia Devil Fruit ability of Snow. If she does have a Logia-Devil fruit ability, than it will be interesting to see how Nami or Robin will deal with her. But I think she did one mistake, she highly underestimated Luffy. For one thing, she thinks that she out witted Luffy, which is something not to boast over, since Luffy is not the brightest guy. But one thing people learn about Luffy is to never think he is down for the count. Also, Luffy is the only one out of the Monster Trio that wont have a problem hitting a lady. I think that she will regret turning her back on Luffy, if she is not stopped by the gang she is facing right now, which consists of Robin, Nami, Ussop, Brook, Kinemon, and Zoro.
Virgo broke the Law (see what I did there)
Virgo, what can I say about this guy, he has almost fought everyone, and just every time it seems that he can take the strongest attack and damage, and walk away. His body still takes the damage but he still can withstand the strongest attack. This could be because of his Tekkia, another technique of Rokushiki which allows the wielder to take on the strongest attacks. He has also shown that he can use Soru another Rokushiki technique. But I still believe that he has a devil fruit ability. The fight between Virgo and Law was entirely unfair on Law’s side since Virgo was able to take Law’s heart. I believe that if Law did not have a handicap he would be able to take Virgo on. And it seemed like Virgo was afraid of Law. Once Virgo found out Law’s plan he made it his number one priority to attack Law. But once again Oda gave us a cliffhanger that suggests of a Virgo Vs Smoker fight. A fight between two of the top fighters in G5. So with the way things are going I cannot predict who will win, but I will tell you who I want to win, Smoker. Next chapter should be an epic battle between these Titans.
- Does Monet remind you of Robin. I mean they are almost identical in story and character. Both work/worked for a tyrant, are both cold-hearted, both are cunning and above all, Dangerous.
- That dragon that Kinemon and Brook beat-up might be Monosuke.
- Why does Luffy always gets stuck?It might be because oda is saving his fight against the reinforcement of Joker’s man.
- Chopper is becoming more of a organized, sophisticated character. Making him the cutest, smartest doctor in One Piece.
- Probably One Piece is one of the only manga out there that has its main characters struggle, lose and get beat up by the bad guys as much.
- I love the current arc, One Piece is becoming more and more chaotic but epically awesome at the same time.
- Who do you want/think will win the fight between Virgo and Smoker?
