The structure of the recent chapters have been so spot on that the flow and transition from chapter to chapter has been perfect. Each character each story and each struggle is given a spotlight. Our heroes are still struggling to discover and save themselves from the Chaois of Punk Hazard. Luffy is pissed of, Chopper is pissed of, Sanji is pissed of, heck even Smoker is pissed of and it is all due to one man, Caesar Clown. My advice for CC is to get away from the Strawhats as far as possible because he has successfully pissed each one of them to the point of no return.
Luffy and the Dragon
I am not going to brag, but the New World is living up to its hype. Look at the things that have already occurred and it is only the beginning of the beginning of the New World. As for our main hero, well he is come to face to face with one of the most infamous creatures in all of fantasy, a Dragon. A Dragon that can talk and is named Monosuke, the son of Kinemon. Monosuke is fairly mature for his age as in the way he speaks. He speaks in a very formal way and has a respectable tone which can hint that the people from the Wano Country speak and have a very respectable society, very much like that of feudal Japan. Either way the conversation between Luffy and Monosuke was entertain and a good laugh. Two things caught my attention in this conversation.
The first is the hallucination Monosuke had of Donquixote Doflamingo (this is a debatable issue because it could be Luffy intimading Monosuke, but I believe its Doflamingo because of the eyes.) and second is his ability to fly. Now what does Doflamingo have to do with Monosuke and to ask a better question, how was Doflamingo able to be in Monosuke’s hallucination to begin with? Could it be that since the Devil-Fruit Monosuke ate be connect to Doflamingo since it the fruit was developed by CC. Or could it be something from the past of Monosuke as to how he arrived on Punk Hazard. I, personally, have no clue as to what to make of this hallucination Monosuke had of Doflamingo. Seconly, if you look at how Monosuke was able to fly, if you look at his hands/legs, they are grabbing on the clouds that are nearest to him. I would assume that Monosuke is somehow able to produce clouds around him allowing him to fly. But nothing is finalized since Monosuke just ate his fruit (10 days ago to be exact), so he is still discovering his true ability. Luffy, for instance, took years before he learned how to use his devil fruit properly.
So our crew is still doing what they have been doing in the last few chapters, running. It seems like that’s all they have been doing. First they ran from Smiley, than they ran from Smiley gas, now they are running from Smiley gas again. Either way the story is progressing much faster than anticipated. Sanji is kicking G5 to safety. Brook, Kinemon, and Ussop are searching for Monosuke. While Nami and Chopper are trying to save the kids. Smoker seems to be winning so far. And Robin got ambushed by Monet, the Snow Lady.
I rarely get to say this, but I told you guys that Monet was a Logia type. I knew this because she could produce an element of snow. Most of the time, if a devil fruit user can produce an element, than they themselves become that element. It is rare that a user of an element is not a Logia type, like that in the case of Mr.3. Nonetheless, I would have never, ever ever guessed that Monet would be going against Zoro. Of all the people she is facing, and it is the worst person to face out of the Strawhats other than Luffy, because Zoro does not play around and he is not collective as Sanji in a fight. Zoro does what he does best, beat his enemy in the quickest way possible. Well my friends the story is becoming more and more chaotic and more and more things keep adding up. One thing I can guarantee you is that Luffy and Zoro will be kicking azz in the next few chapters. Luffy will seek out CC for being sadistic to harm kids and Zoro will put Monet in her place for harming Robin.
- The fight between Smoker and Virgo is just to hard to tell which will win. I get the feeling that will Smoker is pull all these moves against Virgo, he will still lose because Virgo seems to not go down.
- CC better watch out because Luffy will not let him get away from him the third time.
- It seems to me that only Luffy, Zoro, and Sanji having Haki will not cut it, because every one in the New World is in a whole different field of power. The Strawhats need to up their Haki users.
- Brook is becoming more and more convent.
- Franky is still MIA.
