To include humor, action, chaos, spiciness and sexy in one chapter, just astonishes me on how the hell Oda does it. He is like a falling Angel that writes the most bizarre yet bewilderment piece of work. It is no surprise to you guys on how much respect I have for Oda as writer and this chapter proves my found respect for Oda. This chapter makes what One Piece is, being one of the top manga. So enough of my sucking up to Oda, lets get on with this weeks chapter.
We start of where we left off last week, Zoro holding back Monet. To my surprise Zoro is actually holding back his power, and it is a first for us because we have never seen Zoro pit against a woman. We know that Sanji will never lay a hand on a woman, even if it means his death. Like how he was almost killed by Kalif from CP9, and he stood by his word and not lay a finger on her. Luffy on the other hand, does not have the same chivalry as Sanji. He will raise his hand against a woman if she threatens him or his friends. Though we never seen him beat a lady badly like he beats his enemies. Zoro on the other hand, never had to go against a woman entirely. Zoro wont say it, but I believe that he has the same mentality as Sanji when it comes to fighting a woman. That he wont raise a hand against a woman, but that does not mean he will not protect his friends from evil woman like Monet.
Speaking of Monet, she is turning out to be a very promising character, like I said previously, she is becoming a favorite with us. She is as cunning as Robin, and as bizarre as Nami. But she differs in the sense that she thinks differently in right or wrong. What the norm of society considers kidnapping, she considers it parenting. In her thinking, she actually believes that those kidnapped kids are better of as test subjects for CC. She also differs from Robin and Nami when it comes to kids. You could see that Robin and Nami have a soft spot for kids since they both had traumatic childhoods, while Monet seems to have no sense of sympathy for the kids. Which brings me to my next topic,
Should CC and Monet be considered one of the worst people in One Piece history?
We have been introduced to messed up, sadistic, crazy characters in One Piece, but does Monet and CC take the title of the Worst of the Worst? We have seen Doflamingo being okay with slavery, Blackbeard is considered one of the most evil one, and etc, but Monet and CC have done something that we never seen before. Kidnapping, brainwashing and experimenting on children. To me that takes a whole new level of evil because children are not fully developed, they do not have the complexity of right or wrong. And to exploit that weakness to your advantage and use it against the kids. To make them believe that your helping them, but in fact your actually just experimenting on them, makes Monet and CC one of the worst of the worst.
Nami “The Invincible”
In my opinion there are two Strawhats that if they got Haki would be monsters, Nami and Ussop. Ussop is always on target and if he got Haki, his power level would sky rocket and like I said the Strawhats need more Haki or Logia fighters. They cannot simply survive with Luffy, Zoro and Sanji always coming to the rescue. If they keep up the way they are going right now, they will not make it that far in the New World. Look we are only in the beginning of the New World and so far only three people have been giving the Strawhats a hard time and these are not the strongest of people. But Nami showed some promising skills, and it would make sense since she is a weather lady. From her skills, she could be the worst enemy for a Logid Devil fruit user since a Logia Devil fruit is usually a power of elements and who knows more about the elements than Nami. That is why I am candidate Nami and Ussop to be the next Strawhat members to be able to use Haki or make a break through discovery of power.
Monet Vs Tagashi
I gave up along time ago on guessing who is going to fight who. Mangas are known to be predictable when a fight will happen and who will face who. For example, Bleach is notorious for this, almost all the fights are done between fighters with the same personality, not all the time though. But now One Piece is to hard to predict, one moment I am thinking that Virgo will fight Sanji than it turns out he’ll fight Law than Smoker, the fights are never set. It is almost like a war, where anyone can come at you. Now this predicament of Tagashi taking on Monet seems a promising fight because so far we have never seen Tagashi on the winning side. I personally wanted Nami to fight Monet because it looked like she could take her on and Monet has being becoming to confident and making mistakes. One is highly underestimate Zoro, a mistake no one should make. It is one thing to underestimate Luffy but to also underestimate Zoro. Big mistakes on Monet side, I see that in the next few chapters, this story will get even far more complicated and when it looks like it will settle down. The reinforcement from Doflamingo will arrive and it’ll be chaos all over again.
- Those are becoming a bigger character than I thought, it seems that this arc will center around them.
- Chopper reaction to snow monster Monet was hilarious and shame on Nami for trying to use him as a shield.
- Zoro and Sanji never end out of jokes against each other. That little segment they had there was probably one of the funniest thing I have read this month.
- This look like they are set now: Smoker vs Virgo, Luffy is trying to fight CC, Nami, Chopper, and Robin are trying to stop the kids, Zoro and Tagashi vs Monet, and Brook, Ussop and Kinemon are looking for Monosuke.
- Robin calling a stab, a scratch, shes one strong lady.
