    Well, but if it's just an attack - why then change the name? There's absolutely no need for renaming such things like names, and still it is done just to do a revision. Especialy anglicism creations are meant to sound cool and fashionable in German (even if Oda used non japanese names there's no reason to create a new english name for it). And that is censorship for me. It's not different from repainting bikinis to swimsuits, putting black bars over naked breasts and peeping out "bad words" - in case of renamings it's an unnecessary change of the original work. The author had an intention to use that name, and the reader isn't allowed to even know that the original name exists.

    About the Monster Strike. I saw OP first on TV and was hyped when Zoro used Monster Strike for the first time - but then I soon got disappointed over the fact that Luffy uses different names for his attacks while Zoro turned out to be kinda "uncreative" yelling "Monster Strike!!!" all the time which let to eight different Monster Strikes... It got dull already, so everytime Zoro draw his swords you could say "Oh, that's another Monster Strike..." And then I learned through OPwiki that they actually had different names and partially were based on puns linked to the Japanese culture.

    I was quite "disappointed" when I learned that I didn't get what I paid for... official translations done by professionals should be accurate and adequate because they got paid for.

    To get back on trail:

    Luffy evading CC's second Gastanet and appearing right behind him is a reuse of a part of Luffy's fight against Wapol in chapter 151... Wapol's cannon attacks point blank, and hits Luffy who appears right behind Wapol.

    Funny that nobody pointed out that Smiley looked like axolotl since his practically first appearance:

    Spoiler show

    He looks almost same there as here:

    Spoiler show

    Oda suggested readers answer what Slime/Smiley really Was really long time ago.

    fixed your second link as it was the same as it was the same page. Also linked the images directly for better comparison. ~♪ goldb

    Two finds, hopefully not mentioned ones.

    Since we didn't knew that Coby's captain was Garp, this may have been the first hint of in Garp and Luffy being same minded. I'm still not sure which is the right despriction of those two. haha

    Also Aokiji mentioned Water Seven two arcchapters before the Mugiwaras got there, also mentioned that it's near Marine HQ/Marineford.

    edit: What did I look at... Saw a strange figure, must have thought of the apes near Java, should have turned one more page. :P

    I wonder if Franky is now five meters tall as Luffy wanted him to be.

    his height hasn't increased much in the timeskip

    he merely added weapons to his arsenal, he didn't modify his body itself much it seems

    his robot, however, seems to be exactly 5m tall

    franky now, possibly:

    dude, you only think it is in hindsight

    real axolotls do not look like that. they do not have fat little tendrils behind their heads. they have gills.. fuzzy little things that absorb oxygen, not flesh lumps

    it would have been a very uncertain guess with what we were given at that time

    shoulda, woulda, coulda. this isn't foreshadowing as well, it's an explicit revelation, just not explained yet

    Before the timeskip, Franky was about as tall as Robin. After the timeskip, he's become taller than her. I'm not saying that he now is 5m tall, as he isn't compared to Kuma who is 6.89m - but I was wondering if or how close he is now to Luffy's "wish"...

    Actually according to Deep Blue Franky is now 2.4 meters tall (pre-TS he was 2.25 meters tall).

    Re: Awesome Oda Foreshadowing/Recurring Phrases/Images, share!

    well let me add on to this:

    this is a repeat of what i posted a year earlier

    methinks the fact that the shoulder width of the current franky form fits the old franky's upper arm length is uncanny. it could be foreshadowing of:



    also franky frequently stated his old body's weakness was he couldn't modify the back

    i think it's a perfect explanation. Franky built the exosuit upgrade/extension, then attached himself to it as per the picture. he never really modified himself substantially during the timeskip, merely adding on this new exosuit to his old body.

    at a final fight, when his new exosuit parts are damaged heavily, he could just eject both forearms and pull his fists back in place, eject from the suit by bursting out the stitches and splitting the two shoulder balls. much like the iron man armour ejects from the hulkbuster exosuit addon

    That is no "unnecessary cross" - it's part of the Kanji 凶 (read "kyou") which translates to "misfortune". The picture is a standard colorspread by Oda, which was published first in the double issue 37-38 of the year 2003 and reprinted in Color Walk 4 EAGLE.

    See... You were even doubting whether or not the image came from Oda. So I provided background information. No need to be upset at all.

    BTW, what means "u know what ill"?

    well havent read every1s comments but,

    at the start of the Fishman island zoro makes a joke about always wanting to have a fire sword,



    and in this arc he might get his wish in a different way.



    though this could be a difference in translation, these are from mangastream and binkotopia

    Oda really likes to have his characters getting bitten into the left shoulder, doesn't he?

    Chapter 91: Luffy bites Arlong


    Chapter 422: Lucci bites Luffy


    Chapter 641: Hody bites Luffy



    And every time into the left shoulder... ö_O
