Oda really is a master! Every single chapter shows such love and devotion that it's impossible not to be entranced by ONE PIECE. This one might be a transitional chapter (well, we finally got to the NW, heard Bink's Sake again and saw Zoro performing an incredibly powerful attack with just one sword without even trying, an attack much more powerful than the combo attack he and Luffy used to cut through the Aqua Laguna, but I enjoyed this chapter a lot!
Nicely done. Transitional, but still nice. I ask myself if there's something more behind "Bink's Sake" than just being a very old "Pirate Song that everybody knows".
Wait a second... Sea of Flames?! Have they entered the sea around that island where Blackbeard caught Bonney?

Ten times stronger to be precise (360 Pounds).
Could also be a typo, lol.
God damn, just when you think things start getting predictable, Oda throws you off (literally in this case). Oda 1 - Me 0.
LOL i like this chapter a lot. Nami's upgraded clima tact is nice , i wonder if now she can change the weather's properties and make the sailing through the terrifying NW less dangerous. Also after they reach the surface and end up fighting Smoker i was thinking that if things drag to much maybe she could summon a tornado or something like that to help the SH's escape. After all i think it's possible since those gramps from Wetharia were researching weather phenomena and she did say she will try to make the balls that produce clouds improve her weapon. ..looking forward to see if she can something like that
Overall it was one of the funniest chapters till now , everyone made me laugh so much that i don't know who was the funniest anymore but yeah Sanji's checking to see if everyone was alright and counting only Nami and Robin was what remained in my mind
The panels with those whales were the touching part of the chapter and the ending well it gave me goosebumps . I don't know if i can wait till next week to see what's going to happen my heart's beating like crazy
The chapter was ok. Better than it was in the spoilers.
Still I believe it was too much of fanservice with Nami having a bsth and also the fishing theme, but it was funny to see Zoro's revemped 360 canoon with one sword. Don't know if it indicates anything, but it's quite posible that his techniques got 3 times stronger than he was before.
The thing I liked was that White Vortex. It was quite an interesting. I actually thought they would be caught in it and would be taken to some dangerous area, but at the end it seems that they still got to a great place. For now New World lives to his hype. As Zoro said it looks like the gateway to Hell.
what a twist from oda we expected them to reach G-5 and face smoker but the current push them to diff island...think it the lightning island though luffy doesn't need a umbrella and we have to wait for luffy vs smoker match...damn ida like to tease us
Can't say Im not disappointed. But this chapter was needed I guess.
Anyway Uriel, expect many offtopic posts xD

wasn't a great chapter, few funny moments and that's all. the best part was they finally got to the surface and the worst part was nami's feet. seriously, looking terrible
Damn I feel like if I got trolled LOL
It's a good chapter for what it is, but I was expecting that at the end they would meet smoker. Although it might still happen.
Things I enjoyed in this chapter:
Chopper and the storm cloud thinking it was cotton candy
Plus when Nami told them to throw away the fish, the Zoro, Ussop, Sanji and Luffy's faces were priceless. LOL
Sanji's words when peeking at Nami....Sweet and Yummy lol
Sanji seems to be the only one who got charred from the thunder cloud tempo, I wonder if he was trying to sneak closer to get a peek
Zoro 360 pound canon (he's become a monster)
SH's deciding to catch a deep sea fish, lol
It's interesting that Robin knows about the white storm, I'm also glad to see Nami knows about it, it shows she didn't waste time on the sky island
Luffy and his fabled warp zone lol
WTH is up with the sea in the new world??
Lola at water 7, nice cover page, didn't expect that
Why didn't the ship get destroyed/damaged when they hit into the whale?

So Laboon's bigger than Fishman Island? I knew he was big but damn, that's huge.
Oh great, they got to surface, which is more than I had expected.
Whales? Perhaps there are other tunnels connecting seas, only accessible to underwater life. There are only 2 places in the world where people can coat ships in bubbles, after all. Large part of the sea bottom is a mystery. Or maybe the whales broke through themselves (hence the scars).

It's nice to see Lola meet up with Franky old secretaries, so she's still touring in the New World.
Chooper's free pass to heaven and his love for cotton. The cliched fish eats fish eats fish with Luffy mentioning the benefit of it.
"So... then that's the "Warp Zone" of my dreams?!" XD
And their reaction on cutting off the fish and even the thousand sunny macking a shocking face. So good!!!
We've also got an info about the redline holes size, Sanji's overreaction and only counting the women. haha
Brook breaking down mentally and following up with a nice song only to end up in hell. That place looks worse than anything teased up Oda.
Poor Smoker ends up waiting for nothing.^^ I feel a lot of frustrated comments coming up.
Because it's made out of Adam wood perhaps?
Those guys looks even bigger than Laboon, I asume he isn't even a fully grown yet.
Are you sure of that? You mean FI and SA right? How would NW pirates get back [to FI or Paradise] without another source for coating?
You know even fish and wales travel around the world...

Oh wow they got to the surface faster than I expected. Thought it would be three chapters or something. Well on to the new world adventures from here on out. I love transition chapters such as these in One Piece.
