ok i knew that if shanks showed up luffy would be unconscious or something

Yeah, same here ... well, either that or in the future, because the hat must stay with Luffy for now.

Raaahh !!!!I did it
couldn't resist to read the spoilers ...


Shanks to the rescue !!! but Akainu again.
Can't he just take a rest or get punched again :p. He even have time to attack his own soldiers.


I don't think he'll return it to him in person, I mean they weren't supposed to meet too soon, So the next time they meet ... Luffy will officially give the hat back to it "true" owner.With all the time Luffy need to recover ,Shanks will be able to to give it back. It will be kind of weird to see Luffy start the new world without his strawhat.


Now I really want to see buggy's face:).

Best chapter in a while... how many allies does luffy freakin have. After this war Luffy will be capable of asking multiple shichibukai, Shanks and crew, Whitebeards crew, Revolutionary army, Law, Entire Countries (alabasta), for support.

And could Coby possibly be a suprise member of the Strawhats? I am starting to think Luffy will get multiple new crewmates after this war.

Well now that's something I hadn't thought. Coby could very well join the SH, I wouldn't mind. It would be great for him. But I think it won't happen.

I wanna see Garp punching Akainu.


I just realized something.

We all know how Luffy is on verge of mental meltdown. Unless he already experienced one. I think the Straw Hat dropping was a symbol of that. And so Shanks picking up the hat is a symbol of something too.

Just like Shanks initiated Luffys pirate career (kinda), so will Shanks be there for Luffy during his worst moment. I think it's Shanks that will give Luffy the will to continue living.

I mean Shanks has to return that hat to Luffy, right ;)
Agreed.

Shanks, well I didn't want him to come so I won't turn my vest. Oda better has to have a good reason to make him come. Law last week was already enough. The hat lost was quite a quick worry...

On the other side, Coby speech is quite a good surprise. So I will take that and forget the other point.

I don't know how I feel about Shanks showing up because he's not gonna kill BB.
I doubt Oda will kill off BB so early and I really hope that Shanks doesn't get his ass kicked either.

Shanks could beat BB though making him retreat or it could happen the other way around.
Hell to go to the extreme; the marines could beat them both and then both of them would have to retreat.

Well, this is what everyone was expecting...some bigshot be it Rayleigh or Dragon or Shanks would show up and put an end to the war. The only unexpected thing was that Shanks came despite their fight with Kaidou.

I just hope that the rabbid Aka-inu is "put down" by Shanks for good.

DARK
March 23, 2010, 02:16 PM
Oda knew that we were expecting the rest of the Supernovas, but instead omitted all of them except for Law and brought in Shanks instead.
He also expected that Shanks would still be fighting Kaidou at this very moment instead of showing up in the battlefield.
Coby's speech in this chapter was full of pure win; I felt a bit sympathetic towards him after he got his ass kicked by Luffy. Coby follows a sense of Moral Justice above what has already been seen in the series. Apparently he is taking the side of the Marine soldiers instead of the higher-ups.
Still I am curious about what Shanks meant by "green marine." Was he referring to Coby? And if so, to what extent would he call him "green?"

March 23, 2010, 02:19 PM
Sigh. Another week, another cameo.

Next week I suppose Dragon will turn up? Then Kaidou. And then Vegapunk (who is really Kizaru anyway). Then the Strawhat's. Then Duval. Then Roger. Then the war will end perhaps after that?

Anyway, pics are too blurry to make out that well. All I got out of all that was that Shanks blocked Akainu from fisting Coby.

My only hope for this chapter is that Smoker, Kizaru and Garp were all mentioned somewhere. But even then I'm not hoping for much.

Though I was one of a few that was disappointed with Law, I'll probably be standing alone this week in being disappointed with Shanks as everyone else fangasms all over the place leaving it in a mess. War should have practically ended with the quick succession of both Ace's and Whitebeard's death. The longer this arc drags on the less dramatic both of them are.

Akainu is also becoming less and less badass every chapter whilst Blackbeard is not entertaining at all lately.

Come on Oda. Timeskip already!
i am sorry man but do you think the marines would let the pirates go so easy just because the got WB and Ace
i love shanks appearance because he is there to end the war not to save someone like law

thanx
oda said that this is luffy's last adventure as a 17 year old...I guess that a time skip is imminent
I think it's gonna take a long time till we see SHs' reunion. especially since kuma sent robin and chopper (right?) out of the grand line and after the time skip we're gonna see a whole different luffy. affected by ace's death his personality will totally change (or I hope it will)
oda has already changed his style of writing by killing off two major characters so i guess things are gonna change from now on
well that's just my theory let's see what happens next

Actually I have no idea what war you could be talking about, but ALL wars end with the deaths of their leaders. Sure, there's some treaties in there were the leaders don't die, but a very very large majority of wars are simply killing off the leader and then taking what is left.

Of course, this is not a war. It's the police versus a bunch of criminals, so I do get your point that the leaders do not dictate the success or loss of the battle.

This doesn't mean I want to watch 5-10 chapters of escaping. Enies Lobby had, sort-of, 2 chapters of escape. That was enough, it was a perfect amount to wrap things up after the climax.

Where is the climax of this arc? If you can point to more than 2 bits of the arc, it does not mean "This arc was just that epic". All it means is that this arc had no highlight. Without an obvious highlight, the story is just a continuous string of highlights, thus making all of them seem both superficial and lacking.

I am already over Ace, Whitebeard, Luffy fainting, Kuma being a machine, Garp taking the blow, Ace escaping, Oars Jnr, Luffy's Haki, Akainu's introduction and subsequent destruction and Sengoku's master plan. These are all "highlights", but because none of them stand out, we are unable to really attach ourselves to any of them. The immersion (feeling of being caught up entirely in a scene/chapter/story) has been lost.

For reference: I was not over Going Merry's death for at least 50 chapters after it happened. I could still read it and be sad. I could read Ace dying again and feel almost nothing.

if you think if a leader die that the war is suppose to be over then you have to read the alabasta crisis again, not even leader but the when pell explode everyone went berserk.
i get your point but just because the pirates don't want anymore to die doesn't mean the marines do

I think shanks will make/cause the marines listen to Coby's words (that they accomplished their goal in this war ... Ace's is dead not as planed but as scheduled + they got WhiteBeard's head) ... So with Shanks entrance they might will "re-think" or consider what Coby said and will surrender.

Although, if BlackBeard and Luffy make it out alive they'll be a huge threat to the Word Government, so they might stay and fight.

Do you really thing Shanks is so strong to just end this fight quickly??
WB fucked Akainu with 2 blows and he was sick.... and he could not end it....though i think he didnt wanted to because he knew how important the Marine is to the world.
I think BB, Sengok and Garp are all stronger than Shanks so no quick ending.
Big Shots don`t mean anything on this battle field.
I would not underestimate Akainu he is on Shanks level maybe a little higher because of his fruit. The three admirals arent easy to deal with and i hope Oda dont dare to make them look weak by loosing to the WB pirates and/or Red Haired Pirates. The pirates gotta run its the best for everyone. Marines cant be weak they have to be someones who are shocking us when an incident like the Tendryubito afair happens again or some kinda stuff.

Shanks!! nice , i predicted him 15- 10 cahaps. earlier but anyways he saved Corby's life . The wiered thing is, that he as a enemy saved him against Red dog , who should be on corbys' side :D . I now have the enormous feeling Corby is gonna really to be nominated for Sh's 9th crew member.
Corby recognizes that the marines have a other idea of justice, and he also recognizes the meaning of 'peace manis' pirates and begins to understand that being a marine is maby not the right way for him to go.
But on the other hand he had the Great goal, like Luffy had to be 'Pirate KIng',
he will become one days a Admiral of the marine.Since i think Oda will make him one because he loves big dreams come true, so he won't join sh's in the end :(

beastboy
March 23, 2010, 02:45 PM
I think shanks is in better shape than WB, he won't stop to spitt blood, and will try to evade, instead of taking 1000 attacks... I think he has better chances than WB...
But he isn't there to win, is there as a pacifista (somehow, it seems I can no longer use this word....), he is trying to stop everyone from attacking each other!

Oda has done it again ! He's done an amazing scared Buggy face in this chapter ! We'll have to wait for it ! It is when Kizaru tries to kill him with one laser shot but it goes through a piece of clothing, next to his head.

Oh, and Shanks surely knows how to make an entry in the war. The Yonkou seem to be all awesome.

Although I think he'll just cover the pirates' escape and then get the hell out of there, this only means a timeskip or next chapter will be the last chapter in which we'll see the MHQ (in this state). I mean we won't see what will happen between the Marines and Shanks but we'll know the results.

Shanks's arrival is truly awesome and unexpected. On the other hand, his reuniting with Luffy or his strawhat is very soon. I mean what about the suspense for later. Things are really messed up now. Shanks attacking Akainu could be only seen in dream till now. At least Akainu felt for the first time really scared. Also, if the Marines agree to stop the war, what will happen with Blackbeard ?

hmpf, I'm not all that convinced about Shanks appearing in war is a good thing. It sure fits its purpose for Oda 'to end the war', but still, him being there has a little bad taste and I can understand people calling for Dragon, Rayleigh and even Enel atm. since it seems to subside to an all out brawl.

the fact that Oda let the marines act that stupidly is even more disturbing - all Aokiji can do is freeze the ocean? I understand him being lazy. but the other two admirals act foolish to no extent in not going for Blackbeard and his comrades imo <.<;

I'm seeing alot of Shanks-understimation here. Sure Shanks lust an arm, sure he got a scar by BB but that was over 20 years ago (most likely).
His Haki was nowhere near what it is now, he's gotten incredibly strong (around 10 years since we saw his Haki at around where luffy's lvl is now, though we don't know if he did it consciously) and he's gotten used to having 1 arm now.
And since when he got the scar by BB, BB has been hiding his power trying not to stand out, and sure he was/is very strong, but he can't have developed as much as shanks did, he was waiting for that one DF, or should I say 2 DF's.
Shanks got incredibly strong by his own, while BB relied on those DF powers to get strong, sure he got strong, but he couldn't stand up to WB on his own, while Shanks could.
Sure maybe he got his powers now, but that doesn't mean he is at WB's lvl now since he got his power, WB wasn't just all DF Power, he was way more than that, and BB is nowhere near that lvl.
So Shanks is still stronger that BB.

And if you see how strong WB was, then you'll see that shanks definitely got the power to stop this war.

Especially Marco, i was expecting a lot from him, after his awesome skirmish with Kizaru, Jozu too... Definitely disappointed by the WB pirates in this war, and the NW captains too, I was expecting them to do something great, after all the overhyping from Moria about the NW... I expected to see some strong badasses who at least should be strong to take on a Shichibukai... I'm afraid that the level in the NW would be different from what we were expecting...

I'm kinda curious as to what Mihawk will do now that Shanks is here. The two obviously have a friendly rival relationship and I think its been shown that Shanks can talk Mihawk into doing things.. like celebrating Luffy's first bounty. Maybe he will talk Mihawk into leaving the Shichibukai or something.

Don't know why some think its so bad that Shanks came in at this point. If you think about it, the WB pirates have been fighting for a while at least and they are fulfilling WB's last command which is to escape to the new world. In the end its a natural retreat from a terrible loss of both Ace and WB. I love the fact that Shanks has stepped up to make sure they all escape safely and in his own way as he says to 'end the war.' I think Oda is slowly finishing this up on his own as his done in the past. Like he did with Impel Down, except this one being a bit lengthier since its a war. The war itself is such a HUGE turning point for the OP world itself I can understand myself why Oda is taking his time in moving it at this pace.

The only one "supposed" to be a big shot and got his ass kicked is Moria, and the responsible wasn't from WB's crew or a NW captain/pirate, it was Jimbei who did it. (I'm not talking about fodders or the ones "owned by WhiteBeard"). -_-;

I thought the same thing as Evec about Shanks/Mihawk.
I also wonder how much Oda will be excited to have brought back his favourite character.

About the WB pirates, I think their reaction is understandable since they've lost one of their leaders and their dad.
Their morale should be under their feet.

And for the marines...they're men, they've lost a lot of men that died like fodder, there's no wonder Aokiji, that is a smart guy (not only lazy), wants the pirates away as soon as possible since marine can strike them while the WB crew is still licking its wounds.

This is a war that both marine and WB crew lost, the only winner is BB, so only Akainu in his stubborness wants to continue since he's not afraid at all to sacrify countless amount of men.

I'm sure we'll get some clarification on Shanks' little scuffle with Kaidou soon enough.
Just because Shanks is alive does not mean that Kaidou isn't any less intimidating or a big threat. Shanks could have defeated him, yes, but if he has no scratches on him, it's also equally safe to say that he retreated. It is also possible that they clashed but Shanks (or Kaidou) decided to give up their fight upon realizing that WB is dead.
After all, Shanks' fight with Kaidou only started because the latter wanted to kill WB.

no, it might also mean- they have come to an agreement without any bloodshed...since it's shanks we're talking about - it's possible, since he's smart. I bet his dimplopatic skills are rather good ~
there are plenty of possibilities out there, as for why he doesn't seem to have been in a fight...

Considering the current timeline, Whitebeard died max 15 minutes ago... Can Shanks pass a quarter of New world + Merman Island and go to Marinford in that time ?
And even that, the only big tv screens are on shabaody archipelago (at least the only ones shown to us) there is no way he could've gotten the information.

Most likely there was a third condition (weather or marines) that got between the struggle with Shanks vs. Kaidou. Then Shanks just took advantage of it and went to join the war.

Maybe the 4th Yonkou decided to make her/his move as well? Also possible... The report about shanks must have been a while, I think it's a day before the execution... but a timeline would have been nice... besides, it doesn't mean that it was in NW, considering that Kaidou wanted to get in WB's way, he might be someway in that area as well...

March 23, 2010, 04:07 PM
Yeah, Shanks only had to delay Kaidou enough for Whitebeard to get past him to Marineford, any fighting after that would be meaningless.

Marco probably didn't do as much as he could this battle because he was busy babysitting Luffy. I don't know what he was up to while Akainu was chasing Jimbei though.

Not only the Marines but also the Pirates (who are even worse ... all the ex-strongest man in the world's crew couldn't get ride of an admiral, are they pathetic?).

What did you expect? There's a reason that the Admirals + Shichibukai balance out the Yonkou and the rest of the pirates. Simple division captains cannot be admiral level, unless your Marco, since he has a hax DF that allows him to regenerate any injury instantly. It's definitely much better then a logia.

Also, I'm guessing we're not going to see how Akainu got away from that position he was in. He was facing Croc, Marco, and Vista, not to mention a bunch of division captains...so him escaping like that is pretty weird. It's not out of place though, since during this war, we've seen people switch opponents so often that it's ridiculous.

March 23, 2010, 04:10 PM
I wanted to add that beside the Epicness, Oda in the last chapters has done a great work in balancing the manga.

We readers were all on the pirate's side, everyone believed that the marine were the evil, still, after seeing BB acts, marines have a greater respect, they're needed.
The world needs someone who prevents people like BB to create havoc and break loose.
And these men give their lives to keep the world a quiter place, since the marines serve the WG, but are not acknowledged of the misfits the WG "should" have done.

I also absolutely love how he crafted the Crocodile character, that is one of my all time favourites.

Now my question is...will the WB crew disband or will they remain together?

~Shanks and Buggy to be reunited soon~
The ultimate combo to end the war!That should be great.
And perhaps (considering than Buggy he frightened, is a coward) Buggy could ask to him to join in Shank's crew (and that should be hilarious considering what happened at Roger's execution).
And for "Kaidou vs Shanks" in the anime is said than that was only a little fight (I think as WB vs Shanks).

Because there was already to much people in this war. None of the action was during more than 2 pages. So adding another big character which was supposed to fight another yonkou is indeed disapointing. At least to me. I don't know how Shanks is supposed to end the war quicker than another character so I will wait and see, but or the moment, I'm not that enthousiast.

As I said before, Shanks & Buggy reuniting will be the best moment in this war for me! :D I personally think Shanks will give the strawhat to Buggy until Luffy regains consciousness. ;) Buggy will definitely reveal his true colours now! :shakefist

What did you expect? There's a reason that the Admirals + Shichibukai balance out the Yonkou and the rest of the pirates. Simple division captains cannot be admiral level, unless your Marco, since he has a hax DF that allows him to regenerate any injury instantly. It's definitely much better then a logia.

Also, I'm guessing we're not going to see how Akainu got away from that position he was in. He was facing Croc, Marco, and Vista, not to mention a bunch of division captains...so him escaping like that is pretty weird. It's not out of place though, since during this war, we've seen people switch opponents so often that it's ridiculous.

Well, at least they should be able to last a little longer fight in equal one of them (an admiral or a Shichibukai), I know it's a war and the possibilities for a "one on one" fight is barely impossible, but what they've done is just pathetic (IMO).
I hope they can do much better now before leaving.

FINALLY Shanks' power will be proved to all the people saying Mihawk is stronger or even close to shanks' level.

Even after this war Shanks remains the only person able to stand his ground against whitebeard and he has ONE ARM

What about ... hmm ... let assume that we know in advance that the execution is going to take place on a certain date, a certain time and a certain place (which is the MHQ) and the one you're looking for is probably there. wouldn't be easy to find him without a vivre card :tem

I think he meant when Shanks had to help WB avoid Kaidou, not to mention find WB to talk to him in the first place.
[hr]

Even after this war Shanks remains the only person able to stand his ground against whitebeard and he has ONE ARM

Oh come on, we don't even know if WB put all his power into his slash. I'm sure he would of just destroyed the Moby Dick if he were to try his hardest against Shank's slash. There's no way a one-armed Shanks could compete in strength against WB with two arms. I'm not underestimating Shanks or anything, and I'm sure he's completely above Mihawk in overall strength, but he can't be stronger then WB. He's probably really close though.

Shanks entered this war in style. His ship is still sailing towards the island, Shanks himself has already disembarked and to top it all off he saves the "green marine" from Akainu! :shakefist

I really hope Akainu gets pwned completely by Red Hair. :D

And perhaps He will decide (thanks to Koby words) to stay with Rufy, He will betray the marine.
He perhapse will kill also Akainu (but perhaps this his will be done by Shanks or Hancock).

chapter 533

Even there, there wasn't any mention of a fight. Shanks simply prevented Kaidou from attacking Whitebeard...

Maybe pass off the Mugiwara back to Luffy..

Shanks apparently agrees with Coby's idealization of this war being pointless now that Whitebeard is dead and his men are retreating from the battlefield. So yeah, you can say that he's here for damage control.

I expect this from Oda; he's not the type of mangaka who will tone down the epicness of his chapters just because a character/subject of interest has died.
And you call this a battle royale? This is nothing. We still haven't seen the rest of the Red Haired Pirates, or even the rest of the Supernova should they show up anytime soon.

I, on the other hand, will be disappointed if Akainu takes another beating, especially since he's basically been built up as potentially the strongest of the marines.

We already had enough of the Marines and their strenght, we already got that the admirals are super strong and cool, and kickass and whatever... But right now, i'm afraid about the Yonkou, especially after WB deception (i was expecting that he would at least take one admiral with him... ), plus there's Sengoku, and Garp... I mean, the Marines are already strong, and we got it

Shanks better show us just the level of Yonkou right here and right now

You know, its probably not going to happen... But i really kinda hope that Shanks looks to Buggy and says somethng like;
"Is this really the time or the place to be messing around? You coward, stop faking..."

And then Buggy reveals hes quite strong, but is a mega-ultra-coward and doesn't like to be attacked or w/e so pretends to be weak.
Then Buggy an Shanks team up & fuck over Akainu


It wont happen, but I hope Buggy atleast turns out to be moderately strong.
Or he reveals his new ability... something like Senbonzakura or splitting his body into atoms and invading people or something

This has been the longest climax ever.. I'm not saying it's bad, but the Marines are the biggest joke ever.. Sure a lot has gone down, but they really failed here. Akainu was there only solid performer until Sengoku got the buddha palm on.... and now he's gonna be "handled".....

So SN and the rest of Shank's crew are gonna do something more??
And I guess Dragon will show up riding a Sea King??

He said he's gonna end the war, but I wonder how? Will he just own the marines right then and there (which I highly doubt)? Or will he be able to find a way to have the WB Pirates escape successfully? Whatever it is, I'm sure Oda will not disappoint! ^^

Yeah, It would be nice if Shanks got to see just how much Luffy progressed... as for Shanks' plan... It's a weird situation now. I don't see BB die yet... and Shanks either... no battle then, at least no one, that results in the death of one party (I don't want Shanks to die, and it's to early for BB)... Some kind of agreement? Hard to imagine with someone like BB... maybe BB and his comrade will be forced to escape or sth... I don't wanna see Shanks lose TT TT

Just as Roger and Luffy went to the sea for freedom and Whitebeard wanted family, I feel like maybe Shanks's motivation is peace and happiness. He just wants to relax. It would explain why he hasn't been to Raftel yet if he's already been there with Roger.

He will most probably intercept between Sengoku and BB after seeing off Luffy and Law.. He will probably make the Admirals understand that BB is the priority and NOT luffy. But lets save all the Chapter 580 predictions for later.. We are gonna need it :P

He only has one arm, that could count as a health problem.

I really hope he will kick ass, yes, but I have a bad feeling. "I will end this war" could mean a lot of different things. And also I can't imagine that 2 Yonkou crews can take on all the marines + Shichibukai. Even if Shanks and his crew could handle ALL THREE Admirals (I really doubt that, Akainu proofed that the Admirals are VERY strong), what about the Shichibukai??
But he wouldnt say such a thing, unless he really could do it. So what possibilities are there to really END this war?

Perhaps he was some SERIOUS backup aside from his crew? Another Yonkou?

Or Perhaps that means, that he also got a freaking strong DF and is going to use it?
I know, I know, he is strong without DF and in the past he didnt have one, because he could swim in the water. But perhaps he just found the right DF and ate it now, to become stronger.
Many of us didnt expect Whitebeard to have an DF, so its possible.

What do you guys think? HOW can he end this war against alle those strong marines?

Wow 2 People died now, and it's as if all hell is loose and people have been dying during the whole manga left and right.

Am I the one to remind you guys that besides from the flashbacks, the only 2 who have died are Ace and Whitebeard, sure they were awesome characters and and their deaths were epic but that doesn't mean all awesome characters are going to die. Hell, even more deaths are improbable (not likely).
Now that Oda killed off 2 people, doesn't mean he has to go around killing some more too.

If Oda was going to kill anyone, it's most likely those 2 are the only ones who had to die. Their characters were awesome and legendary, their deaths were epic. The only deaths OP will know, they will be honoured by that title.

RIP Whitebeard and Ace, may your deaths be remembered an honoured till the infinty and beyond! end of times (One Piece) and beyond.

(Though i wouldn't mind Shanks kicking some Akainu's serious ass TO INFINITY AND BEYOND!)

An epic entrance by Shanks. Thats what I love in One Piece, there is always something you didn't see coming and bam.
I think Shanks will try to defeat the BB more than the Marine after all, he is the one who staged the hole war and threatened the whole World. The only one Shanks will eliminate is Akainu, otherwise I see not much hope for Luffy to escape (or at least I wish he would kick his ass).

I was waiting for him to make an appearance. Lets see if he can make this war any more epic than it already is.

This is why I love one piece. So many epic characters, who can make the most epic entrances. Oda creating this many great characters is really paying off. He could go on for weeks, making characters do all kind of awesome entrances. He's got a ton of em left.

Then let me remind you, that this is the first REAL war in One Piece, so you can't really compare this to the rest of the Manga.

I really like what Oda is doing here, I like that a few dudes are dying and there could be some more, if you ask me. Because the death of them will bring some real change into the story and that is good, IN MY OPINION.

March 23, 2010, 06:32 PM
I don't think Shanks scolding the three parties (marines, WB alliance, BB pirates) will end the war. Shanks defeating the marines and BB pirates is not probable either. So, I think he will somehow create an escape path and beat the ones who are too stubborn to let them go.

But I wonder what will happen to Coby. I think after the war he will be under the protection of Garp, if both will still be marines. That is enough protection from Akainu, as attacking to a subordinate of Garp in front of him outside the war is a foolproof way of getting beaten, even for an admiral.

Someone probably intervened and they are kept busy fighting some lower ranked marines. Or aikanu just caused a distraction for him to chase luffy for a brief moment. Either way, no way he's touching luffy now with shanks there.


PS, is anyone else hoping shanks will just smack teach, and just nullifies the whitebeard power. Telling teach that even though he's got whitebeards power, he still isn't shit. and proceeds to smack him again.

what I mean is look at their determination here (http://www.mangastream.com/read/one_piece/578-74/15) and what Croco blamed Jimbei for (http://www.mangastream.com/read/one_piece/578-74/12) ("Croc: If you swear to protect him, then get it done!!!

i think shanks will be more of a challenge to the Marines simply because of age..
we know whitebeard was not in his prime and that stab by squado proved it.
even Marco admited that, so Shanks even without an arm i think should put up more of a challenge and has a realistic chance of taking down an admiral hopefully akainu since hes already injured

And once again, Akainu tries to kill a another comrade. Interesting that Kizaru finally showed up. He's trying to stop Law, but Shanks may be able to help Law out.

What are the chances of an agreement made between Kaido and Shanks with Kaido showing up as well?

I wanna know what happened between Shanks and Kaidou dammit.

I think it's kinda sad that WB had to see Ace,his son, die... well... it's sad that they had to die altogether ... but it is sad that WB died knowing that he failed in protecting him TT TT it was damn unexpected, this turn of events...
That's why, I'm sorta worried about Shanks -_- Everything is so unexpected up until now... and maybe Shanks' crew DID suffer some loss from fighting Kaidou, we've only seen shanks and beckman in the new chapter, right? A lot of things still can go wrong... I just hope that Luffy won't stay in his depression over Ace forever and takes responsibility for his nakama. I mean, they should take priority, right? He's the captain, I thought? ... I hope Shanks saves the day and Luffy can recover and gather his crew.

I know it was kinda sarcasm :)
what I mean is look at their determination here (http://www.mangastream.com/read/one_piece/578-74/15) and what Croco blamed Jimbei for (http://www.mangastream.com/read/one_piece/578-74/12) ("Croc: If you swear to protect him, then get it done!!! Don't let them have their way any further!!!") and look what happened (Akainu hasn't got his @$$ kicked yet). :darn

even haki users can't touch akainu(Marco and vista) maybe not strong enough haki

Croco boy may or may not be using haki so who can stop akainu?
maybe his attacks but he still keeps moving forward.



Woots Shanks, didn't expect that... he is now gonna stop this war :D
epicness...


if shanks just joined the war earlier... marines are screwed... but oh well shanks don't want to make WB look weak that he needs help.

I hope shanks doesn't die lol, since there are so many unexpected deaths, at least not shanks:darn

March 23, 2010, 07:41 PM
Shanks can't die, because it'd probably be one of the biggest letdowns in the history of manga. He just came in saying he's going to end this war, so getting touched by someone who's not Garp would be an utter disappointment.

_AceOfSpades_
March 23, 2010, 07:45 PM
well, I think so too... but nothing is certain yet. Luffy freakin' wasted 10 years of his life, had to go through the torture of ID, fight through the marines... and Ace just goes off... and dies. I couldn't believe that Ace would die after all that Luffy had to go through ... and then ...he died. I guess it's best not to expect too much.

March 23, 2010, 07:48 PM
@ elitefox : Agreed, but Shanks just proved that Akainu can be stopped ... I know he's a Yonkou and all but being commander in the Strongest man's crew should be enough to stop Akainu (at least stop him).

Bertosch
March 23, 2010, 07:48 PM
Luffy has lost more than enough. Lost his crew, his brother and some years of his life. He suffered enough... A loss of his gramps or even his best friend would be the worst and most awfull case ever...

Edit: I am quiet sure that Rayleigh has sth to do with the arrival of Law. Maybe he saved him from Kizaru, too back at Shabondy and asked afterwards for his help.

March 23, 2010, 07:49 PM
It is really funny how Oda plays with people

In the spoiler it says

That marines have higher morale since they have accomplish their goal which I think crush one yonkou.

but then in the end Oda releases Shanks into the field

Marines: WTF another yonkou.... okay back to retreating :amuse

That's why, I'm sorta worried about Shanks -_- Everything is so unexpected up until now... A lot of things still can go wrong...


Luffy and Shanks' reunion and Usopp and Yasopp's reunion is the most anticipated event from the beginning. The highlight of the entire 300+ chapters, even to some extent shabody arc was that Luffy had to meet shanks. It will not end without that happening, IMO..



I just hope that Luffy won't stay in his depression over Ace forever and takes responsibility for his nakama. I mean, they should take priority, right? He's the captain, I thought? ... I hope Shanks saves the day and Luffy can recover and gather his crew.

Luffy already has taken the responsibility of his Nakama.. He said that during his fight with Blueno. He very much feels responsible for his crew.

And of course, luffy is gonna look for his Nakama. Shanks might not help. I am guessing Dragon will help Luffy.. Or may be, Kuma himself.

How Shanks could end this war ?

He is a big threat at many level.

As a yonkou he should be strong but I think his strenght is not the biggest threat to the world governement.

He was a member of the pirate king crew.
The little mention of the OnePiece by Whitebeard make Sengoku sweat of fear.

So what will happen if Shanks threaten Sengoku to talk about the One piece or the lost history ?

It would lack epicness but in fact he doesn't really need to threaten Sengoku and marines.

Sengoku probably know how much Shanks strenght and knowledge of Raftael, One piece, lost history are a great menace for the marines.

elitefox
March 23, 2010, 08:14 PM
I wanted to add that beside the Epicness, Oda in the last chapters has done a great work in balancing the manga.

We readers were all on the pirate's side, everyone believed that the marine were the evil, still, after seeing BB acts, marines have a greater respect, they're needed.
The world needs someone who prevents people like BB to create havoc and break loose.
And these men give their lives to keep the world a quiter place, since the marines serve the WG, but are not acknowledged of the misfits the WG "should" have done.

I also absolutely love how he crafted the Crocodile character, that is one of my all time favourites.

Now my question is...will the WB crew disband or will they remain together?

This is why I believed that Shanks doesn't attack the WG with WB so that they wouldn't destroy WG since it still has a good side that prevents ruthless pirates from getting what they want.

Luffy is more of a Sailor than a pirate though but being a pirate king means most freedom.

That I am not sure... Sengoku and Garp might have fought WB but fought shanks who might be a rookie back then? I don't think so.

So I don't think they know how powerful shanks is but they do know he is powerful since he is a yonkou afterall.

Can't wait for the scanlation :darn

Im not to dissapointed with the introductions of shanks though I hope there is no more cameo's because that would be OTT!! The only dissapointing thing about these spoilers is the fact that Kaidou may be out of the picture. If he is we would see nothin of him and that would be a huge waste of character:mad. The war will end soon and for all those complaining about cameos this is nothin they needed law and shanks for Luffy and other pirates to escape. Oda could have made dragon appear lol.:p

as for mihawk i dont think he'll touch shanks ort go ear him. as far as i can tell he has a friendly relationship with the guy so he'll keep away

none of the other shichibukai would have the balls to take on a yonkou

Then let me remind you, that this is the first REAL war in One Piece, so you can't really compare this to the rest of the Manga.

I really like what Oda is doing here, I like that a few dudes are dying and there could be some more, if you ask me. Because the death of them will bring some real change into the story and that is good, IN MY OPINION.

But let's see, how this will turn out :)

there should be a big time marine who will die. else the marines will totally win this war

Marine's boast of justice but where were they at cocoyashi island when bellemere got shot and the town was oppressed. Or in Alabasta or in Drum island?? where's the Marine's justice. Akainu pisses me off so much. He's truly a dog that won't let go after he bites down on someone. I will love BB if he kills Akainu.... and I will build him a shrine if he kills Kizaru :D! I hate BB but at least he doesn't say that he's just and honorable and crap ... he KNOWS he's scum. okay I'm done bashing Akainu...... I will now let Shanks or BB take over and beat him to a measly pulp.

I never thought I'd see this so soon where Shanks picks up the strawhat. I've been waiting forever to see that happen. He was there for Luffy when he was attacked by the sea monster when he was little and lost his arm in the process. Hopefully he won't loose anything else this time round.

PLEASE OH DEAR LORD PLEASE bring on the other STRAWHATS!!!! that is the ultimate wish. If I were sick ... and make a wish foundation contacted me ... I'd tell them to contact ODA and have him write the Strawhats into this war!! :D I'm going to tilt over like I did when I saw Shanks in the spoiler. DAMN didn't expect that one at all. like "POW" it hit me in the face I was so shocked.

I am not shocked Shanks came because Shanks probably will comfort Luffy to move forward in life and Shanks can even train Luffy too.... As expected Marines taking advantage to Annihilate the Pirates that come at the war but because of Shanks arrival the WG will not achieve that.... For Coby because of what he have done I think he will be a great Marine like Garp and because of this, after this arc probably a long time skip

It is good to see Shanks since the command in WB pirates is lost now so there is chaos.
we all know what happens when the leader is gone.

Well, we only got news that Shanks stopped Kaidou. We don't know how. It may be a large speech or just one fight or even a promise. After all, they said something similar when He met Whitebeard and we know it was just captain chat.

I doubt they actually fought, JUST because He seems to be fine and not injured and I expect for all Yonkous to be able AT LEAST to leave a scar on each other.

Or maybe they are already there under water waiting to surprise marines in the next chapter.

Once again the tide of the war changes. You can now understand why this is called a world war. Expect the unexpected. Even without the 1 vs. 1 battles quality of the war and epicness of this arc is not dropped.

3 admirals is still chasing after 1 rookie, yet still haven't managed to land a single fatal blow.

As awesome as shanks block on akainu is, imagine how it would've been if zoro jumped from nowhere to block the attack. That would've been some entrance for straw hat crew. Luffy already made his mark. And it would be good to show the marines this is the future of the new world. But you can understand why they are not there, its not their time and place yet. But based on what has transpired in this war you can't discount anything.

On second thought, I'm starting to get the feeling that Luffy will just be unconscious through all of this. Shanks might just put the hat on Luffy's head and then leave (after he ends the war of course :D). Then, they will have a proper reunion in the future.

March 23, 2010, 11:21 PM
I think Shanks is going to end this war with a rather simple gesture. "Either let these pirates leave in peace or go to war with me". I can definitely see him saying something to that affect. Because lets be serious, the Marines went through enough facing just one Yonkou. And there is no way in hell they would want to face another one and do so with BB there as well. Besides Ace and WB are already dead so the Marines have technically won. And anything after that would just be an added bonus to their victory. But of course not if that bonus comes at the cost of having to face another Yonkou, in which case victory would not be so assured.

What I'm really surprised to see is Coby. Not only did he bar Akainu's way but shows compassion on the soldiers and to their families. Coby is clearly a follower of the "moral justice" line of Marines.. He's lucky that Shanks was there to save him, but even in a crumpled mess, he showed resolve if nothing else..

Shanks and what looks like Beckman on the scene is a good sign of retreat on the horizon.. Glad there is a sense of tension being kept here, I have no idea what to expect next..... really..no idea.

Akainu is the worst pain in the ace... Shanks has to finish him and vanish afterwards. It is really time to go on with the SH-pirates.

I really want shanks to keep the straw hat, so Luffy can where his brother's hat in remembrance and give Luffy a physical change and mental change also. I hope most are guessing that the wound he got from red dog will be a scar also to remember his brother also.

No no no... the strawhat has to stay on Luffy's head. For now they didn't met again because Luffy is passed out. Law will flee with him and Shanks is going to clean this mess up. So they won't actually meet and Luffy could keep the hat. Ace will live on in his memories, in his anger against WB and the WG. But revenge isn't the real goal for Luffy. He promised his brother to live his life no matter what and do not look behind.

I can not wait to read the scanlations or even see the anime. This whole arc in coloured and moving pictures has to be awesome.

Shanks ?! shanks ?! I'm really speechless !!

what an epic entrance at a time like this .... it's perfect

so, shanks will give back the strawhat to luffy & law will take luffy to shapondy ..

this is the second time, shanks saved luff ...

I want to see buggy's reaction ...

will BB be a target for shanks .. now ?!

woooooooooooow ,,, each chaper gives me chills

The BB is on the other side of the island lol dealing with half the force of the marines

and on the other half shanks dealing with the 3 admirals which I think half of the marines too.

Coby saved somebody or many because he startled 2 of the admirals :D

making shanks and first mate arrive at a nick of time :D
[hr]

i wonder if shanks will loose another arm protecting his bet to the new era :D! i think he will still be bad ass with no arms at all lol

omg how the fuck will he fight

Stick 2 swords in both of his arms instead of legs like golden shiki?
I think 1 arm is enough.

maybe disabled but I think he is used to it now...

Can wait to see how shanks fight... win or loose I will be shanks fan :D
[hr]

I predict Luffy wants to be stronger to get revenge on the marines for him to do it maybe Iva will tell him about dragon and Luffy will train with him

Nah, luffy is not the type of a revenge guy but well who knows.

but I am sure if they meet again(Akainu), he will spank his ass to death

* if and only if Akainu is not going to be rape in this war and die


or Shanks will just say:

Marines... Retreat now or suffer my wrath :D
then haki burst woots, all that is left standing will be killed and the ones that gets knock out will remain knock out :p

Oda is fricking brilliant.

March 24, 2010, 02:52 AM
You could be right, BUT I really cant imagine that Akainu would be OK with that. He would attack 'em relentlessy, no matter what. At least thats how I see it.

yes i agree with also but even if akainu still wants to attack luffy, he cant do anything if sengoku orders him not to... he'll either disobey orders or get disciplined by the marines

doesnt mean if you're an admiral you can still defy orders from above
[hr]

You really think luffy won't wake up? Eventually he will, and shanks has his hat back, he will give it to luffy again since luffy isn't a great pirate yet.

if he won't then he'll get real pissed upon learning it. which would make himself want to get even stronger so he won't miss shanks the next possible time he'll appear ;)
[hr]

The marines will be surprise that Shanks is a friend of Luffy :D

Marines: What the hell is with this rookie?

they probably all know after garp divulged it in water 7 and with garp's crew there hearing him say that
[hr]

Shanks ?! shanks ?! I'm really speechless !!

nope. shanks wont target BB. he's not a warmonger. unless BB attacks him, then shanks will retaliate for sure.
[hr]

Well for the count

Akainu thinks he is justice so he thinks he is always right

remember the guardia civil?
they are bad but needed...


a bit of Philippine history lol :D

lol. we shall find out next chapter if sengoku will let akainu loose or not. if he'll let akainu be, then there is something wrong with the marines.

since there's not much rumble fighting going on, sengoku should have an idea what each is up to. and in akainu's case ... terminating fellow marines ...

anyways im guessing Shanks will be there just to cover up their retreat for the WB and others after a successful retreat..

Akainu is the worst pain in the ace... Shanks has to finish him and vanish afterwards. It is really time to go on with the SH-pirates. I really miss all of them, maybe Brook not that much but all in all it is kind of annoying that the focus from the SH went to some random pirates and marines in this arc.

I think Akainu may being set up to an enemy that Luffy will eventually have to fight after the time skip, somehow.

Yes Luffy does need to live on, so that means he has to gain enormous amount of strength to defeat Akainu and survive to become Pirate King, because Akainu is not the biggest Shark in the Sea.

There was a statement concerning Strong World (the Movie) being Luffy's last adventure as 17 year old which Oda gave in the Strong World (the tankoubon) IIRC... And that's it - AFAIR he wasn't even referring to the current war in Marineford.

Well we know that some islands have a ridiculous required time for the lock post to set (years, for instance). It would be a little too easy if the straw hats got nothing but short islands or super convenient permanent lock posts all the time. So I'm guessing out of logic we will have an arc coming up of the straw hats reuiniting, then heading to merman island then having to stay somewhere at some point for the lock post, so they take that time to improve themselves. But ya Oda doesn't have to do it this way but the way mangas are the characters don't age without time skips. :P

i do agree that Laws entrance is overwhelmed by Shanks's entrance. But Law cant do much but run away if he was able to rescue Luffy safely. I like how Oda made us think Law can save the day, but it ends up being another Yonkou that has to lead the way out for the pirates who are in trouble.

I like how in the previous chapter, Luffy's hat was seen floating and lost in the midst of battle away from Luffy. And the person that appears and picks the hat up is Shanks, the original owner of the hat. Very very cool.

I have a feeling that Akainu is going to be Luffy's main opponent when the great war (that WB was talking about before his death) happens. Since it will be the people who know the truth vs people who want to suppress the truth.

In a recent interview however, Oda mentioned that the Marineford Arc will be Luffy's last adventure as a 17 year old.

That "recent interview" was published in Vol. 0 Strong World - and it's more like a final commentary to the volume and the movie. I'm referring to the translation from the German OPwiki (http://de.opwiki.org/wiki/Kommentar:Strong_World)...

"Oh yes, this story is (going to be) the last adventure as 17 year old. Please come and watch (not read!) it as often as you like to."

I agree with you, it's harsh on Law & co but I reckon Red Hair's appearance will aid them in escaping safely without any further injuries. ;)

We will definitely see more of the Heart Pirates since Luffy & Jinbei are now in Law's care. I think they might be heading back to SA where Rayleigh is? I can't wait for that stupid magma brat to get a taste of Shank's haki attacks! :shakefist

It's not like Oda is going to flood the next chapters with more introductions and appearances imo. In a hurry? I don't think Oda randomly decided to introduce so many great pirates just for the sake of it. Oda plans very well for the sake of the story line so I can't see him doing any harm with the entrance of Shanks & Law tbh.

Shanks already stated that he has come to end the war and it's too early to see Shanks (another Yonkou) to go all out on the battlefield right now. I highly doubt that this war will go on for any longer. I'm happy with Law & Shanks appearing. :)

Just that those two have two very different relationships to each other. And Shanks is kind of Luffys idol not his father, so it's just two nice entrances. :D

The length of this arc is just Odas fault of not being able to estimate an arcs duration. Why would he want to end it faster? It's his money making machine and nothing will change the fact, that this is the end oder middle part of One Piece.

Guys. I doubt that Shanks is anywhere near Whitebeard's level. Still really awesome that he's decided to make an appearance in the war.

If he's not WB level, then the whole Yonkou thing is a BIG JOKE... And better not be like that, or else the NW arc will suck, the marines will be like the big bosses of the world...

Look at the Shichibukai. Gecko Moria and Hawkeyes? They ain't on the same level either. I'm not saying that Shanks isn't strong, but I'm certain that Whitebeard was on a league of his own.

WB was old. I guess that Shanks should be nearly as strong as WB was. This is the reason why he has the guts to show up in this "war".

remember the first time we saw WB in anime? he was introduced as the strongest man in the world

Shanks stops Akainu even casually for me. Just being serious and making serious statements. And finding Luffy's hat. Everyone was wondering about that shit, whos gonna get it and stuff.

But I repeat myself here: can Shank's crew take on all the three admirals? Altough Ben Beckman made Kizaru raise his hands it seems. And Shanks stopping Akainu casually also.
