This chapter had unexpectedness written all over it. From the death of Monet to Joker charging towards Punk Hazards Island. All I can say is that for a One Piece fan, we got what we wanted for Christmas from our favorite manga authors. All the Big three (One Piece, Naruto and Bleach) have made a tremendous comeback and deserving to be called the Big Three. So give me your time so I can entertain you with this weeks chapter analysis.
Probably the most bizarre Strawhat member is Franky. Everything about Franky is over the top. From his appearances to his inventions. The only Strawhat member that can match his bizarre appearance is Brook. While Franky is bizarre and over the top, he is a favorite with the fans. He has a strong belief in protecting his comrades, which is very appealing. Another appealing attribute about Franky is his inventions. Ever since the time skip, Franky has shown that he has upgraded his body to further help his crewmates. From his flashlight nipples to his Franky Shogun. Like I said last week, Franky is not down for the count in his battle with Baby 5 and Buffalo, while he still has yet to land an effective attack on them, to contemplate for his lack of offense, he has been brushing off every attack from Baby 5. But what surprised me is how resilient Franky Shogun is. When it was first introduced the Franky Shogun was a gag, meant to be just for laughs, but it seems that Franky has been working on the Shogun to further develop its ability to maneuver and project its own weapons system.
One thing Oda does so well is make great female characters, a perfect example is Baby 5. She became an instant hit with the fans. And what to hate about her, she is a walking talking weapon woman, who happens to be extremely gullible, that any guy and I mean any guy can hook up with her. And oh she happens to smoke like a boss. Though the most intriguing thing about Baby 5 is her ability. We know that she ate a Paramecia Devil Fruit, she has shown the ability to be blasted to a million pieces yet regenerate back to her former self. The best way to describe Baby 5 ability is to think about the T-1000 from Terminator 2. But unlike the T-1000 she can turn herself into exploding weapons like cannons, missiles and so on. Now I will go out on a limb here and say that Baby 5 has the similar ability as a Logia, in the sense that she can regenerate her body. It would explain how she is perfectly fine when shot while she was attacking Joker. Though I have another theory on how her ability works. So far we have seen that she can regenerate her body after she explodes it. So maybe that is the only way she can regenerate her body, only if she herself explodes it. So if someone attacks her with a rocket, sword and etc, than she wont be able to regenerate since it was an outside party that harmed her body. (Does it make sense to you guys?) Either way Baby 5 is a very hot topic.
Unexpected Move From an Unexpected Man
I read most comments and what most people have been saying about Joker is that we have jumped the gun with judging his character. That we have been labeling him as a murderer, a slave trader, pimp, and may horrible titles, but in fact he is not what he seems. That he actually cares for his crew, that he actually has emotions for his comrades. I do not buy this what so ever, I still think that Joker is exactly what we all think and thought he is, a very bad and dangerous man. For the simple fact that he made Bellamy and Sarkies fight each other. Also, for what seemed to be a last far well for Virgo, since Block D exploded which is where Virgo is. Another thing to note is that he ordered Monet to push the button that will annihilate everything and everyone on the island, including her. He commanded this with his signature smile. Now you might think that he is hastily making his way to the island to protect his comrades, but that is an ignorant way to look at it. Joker is racing to make it to the island so he can get CC back on his side. The fact that he said that his comrades were okay and the island is not blown up, as if he was disappointed just tells you that he is a very dangerous man. Either way Donquixote Doflamingo aka Joker, finally crossing paths with the Strawhats spills lots of excitement. The only question is the Strawhats ready to go against the most Dangerous Man they have ever crossed paths with?
- While Joker seems and is bad, for some reason his crew have high respect for him.
- This is probably the tenth time I have said this, Law prepares for everything.
- Monet actually dying was pretty shocking because I thought that CC would simply squeezes the heart or just injures but not stab Monet in the heart literally. (Unknowingly knowing it was Monet’s)
- This arc by far is what we all have been waiting for.
- It was a funny scene of Law asking if any one can manipulate weather and to the shock of G5 members, Nami says she can. Till this day it amazes me how convenient the Strawhats are in tight situations.
