Answer: Oda's ingenuity! ^_^

I believe this arc will last till about chapter 750. Maybe there will be firstly a skirmish and later a battle involving Luffy and Quixote, like Luffy and Crocodile.

Canon? Only stuff inside Manga (from title page to SBS)!

IDK if it's the case, but there is a power difference of three ranks between HQ Junior Officers and ordinary Base Junior officers. Or rather, HQ Officers are super-elites.
If I understood, I...

Yes! Oda told us it counts, right?! To Straw Hats, ships are nakamas.

I agree. Chopper is full of potential. But you just indicated why he is not powerful yet: his physical strenght potential is diminished by his mental weakness, because he is too young, naive,...

Exactly! That's the question!
Look at this one here. I think that slightly matches Marine ranks. Slightly! However, to us, what matters is to understand the structure (Sui Ranks, Sho Ranks etc) in...

I would like to see a new crewman of other race (dwarf, fishman, giant).
But, Luffy said he would recruit 10 crewman. And he did do that a long time ago.

Fleet Admiral (Gensui) is not—or not only—an 'Admiral' (Sho) but a 'Commander' (Sui), like Kong, who is a Commander-in-Chief (Sosui).
There are only four ranks clearly named 'Admirals' (Sho) and...

Guys, there are four ranks of 'Admirals' (Sho):
Rear Admiral (Shosho),
Vice Admiral (Chujo) and
I believe Coby will imitate his master/idol Garp,...

Good timing, Oda. Four chapter and a break.
Oda's WORK RYTHMN according to the chief adventures:
[001-100] EAST BLUE : 16,7 chapters per break. Or, 100 chapters, 106 weeks [2y0m], 6 breaks.

I think we need a power-level standard to discuss character strenght. But I believe Oda told us little about power standard.
Oda used or explain in the storyline what we could call the...

Sad... I've thought Sanji was an Admiral-level fighter. I was too optimistic... or insane. However I hope Sanji is Vice-Admiral-level at least.
And Zoro?! Admiral- or Vice-Admiral-level?!

I bet the school of fighter fish will someways interfere in Sanji-Quixote battle.

Please, guys, give me a hand with the...

My hint on Oda's rationale:
Post-timeskip Monster Trio is analogous to the three Admirals before timeskip.
IMO Luffy, Sanji, Zoro are now Admiral-level fighters.

One Piece's going on for 844 weeks. Oda's released 722 chapters. It's a delay of 122 weeks. So each 6 chapters released there's a 1-week break.
But, after the beginning of last part of One Piece,...
