After a one week break, this chapter lives up to its hype. While it lacks for action, it makes up in suspense. Revelations are made that makes any One Piece fan want to read the next chapter that badly, and makes us think of a whole new ideas, theories and clue as to what is next in store for our heroes.
From Zero to Hero
This is the second time that a character when first introduced I despise them, but as time goes on, the character grows on to my liking. The first being Mocha which I thought was taking precious panels and time, but when she made her ultimate sacrifice, I have a new found respect for her. Even though she is not the coolest or the toughest character, nonetheless she has a refreshing character of heroism. The second is Brownbeard, I hated this guy, because to me he seemed like a character Oda just out of the blues made up without thinking or effort. Boy was I wrong, not only was effort put into the character of Brownbeard but his story is right on the spot. His timeline and presence makes perfect timing for the story. Brownbeard is a character that went from a total douche to a somewhat humble and caring person who wants the best for his comrades.
When Brownbeard was first introduced, he claimed ownership of some island that was once Whitebeards territory and he tried to claim it with a tyrannic plan. But his plans were cut short by Hawkins and by this event he lost his lower body and was replaced by an alligator instead. This gave him a somewhat a boast in power, as he can run for a long period of time and he has a high resistance to pain, as to he was blasted by the one of the Yeti brothers gun and was still able to stand up. Also he took a shot from CC and was still able to care the Strawhats on his back and run for a long period of time. His resistance to pain is not the only good attribute he has, but it is his determination to help a friend in need. He tries to reveal to his friends that the hero, CC, they thought to be is actually the man behind all of their suffering. It was a valiant effort that back fired on him and caused Brownbeard more suffering and pain.
The more CC is still up and about, the more I hate him. The past villains were not as bad as CC, in the sense that we the fans want him to get his butt kick so bad. There have been some horrible villains that we the fans hate, Blackbeard, Doflimango, and etc. But CC does a great job of being that perfect villain, that makes everything work out for him. For example, as Brownbeard was just about to reveal CC true identity to his comrades, CC with his quick thinking was able not only prevent Brownbeard from revealing CC, but to also make Brownbeards comrades fight against him. Now while I hate to say it, but CC is an evil genius.
While CC is a genius in his own field he lacks in power, I know that he is powerful, but when it comes to fighting strengths he is more of the type that will run away to fight another day, rather than staying and try to at least win. And we have seen that numerous of times where he gets away from Luffy. I think that this time Luffy is not playing around, he no longer will treat this as a game, he is dead serious and one thing bad guys need to be scared of is a serious Luffy because that’s when stuff goes down. Luffy no longer will allow to let CC get away because know Luffy know what type of a person CC is and it is the complete opposite of Luffy. Where Luffy is humble and caring, CC is tyrannic and heartless to people. It is this type of person that Luffy hates the most, the type of person that does not have the care of others. My only concern is that I am thinking that Luffy just K.O’d CC. I certainly hope not, because I want to see Luffy do a barrage of Gomu-Gomu no Pistol.
An Army of Devil Fruit
Now from the way CC was talking it can be seen that he is afraid of Luffy and knows that he does not stand a chance against Luffy , that is why for the past chapters he has been fleeing when ever Luffy was in the same room. But now CC has his back against the wall and Luffy is in front of him. So in an act of desperation he spills out all of his secret. How he works for important people and if Luffy puts a stop to CC, he will have to answer to the important people. Not only Doflimango but also one of the Four Emperors. Luffy’s response is that he has been dealing with guys like them his entire life. Which is true considering the odds were always stacked against Luffy. As to which of the Four Emperors has an army of Devil Fruit fighters, my money goes to Blackbeard because he is the one that has been experimenting or at least has a high knowledge on Devil Fruits. It also could be Kaido because he is the least known out of the Four Emperors. Shanks can be ruled out because he would not work with the likes of CC. As for Big Mama, it could be possible that it is her, since she has been the one in the story line so far. Either way once Luffy puts CC down, he will make another enemy of a high player. So far he has the attention of the Marines, Doflimango, Big Mama, and maybe a new Emperor after this event. All and all, the story is becoming far more exciting.
- So GAS is the substance that can create artificial Devil Fruits. No wonder Law wants it or at least catch the attention one of the Emperors.
- Luffy just showed why you do not get on his bad side.
- The Devil Fruit Army seems a majority of Zoan type.
- It would be cool if Zoro and Sanji take this army down single-hand.
