Bolded the important partQuote:
With the latest chapter we got to see the awesome Smoker back in the scene with some funky new clothes, but the biggest revelation was that he seems to be a man possessed when it comes to Luffy. In fact you can take his current words to mean that he wants to create his own bizzaro strawhat crew to take down the Strawhats.
People have stated that there is a mistranslation and it is not blood, it is power; perhaps in reference to Smoker's planned promotion. This could be integral in swinging some fellow marines into his ranks to hunt down our favourite pirates; this thread exists do discuss the conversation between Smoker and Tashigi, and possible crew members to follow Smoker.
yeah but really have we seen a marine crew? no...
so i doubt it. I mean he probably just meant that the marines need more people but not that Smoker should gather a crew. Anyways Smoker is captain so what could his promotion be? Vice Admiral seems the most likely..
I asked WinterLion to verify this, and what he says is neither blood nor power, but "rank"... So he's saying he needs to take the promotion so that he can be transfered to the New World and fight the Straw Hats...
Looking at Stephens Marine hiearchy chart, taken from an SBS, that would mean a promotion to either Commodore, rear Admiral or possibly even Vice-Admiral?Quote:
thanks for clearing that upOriginally Posted by Hermie
you're my hero
No need to thank me, WL was the one doing the translation. ^^;
yeah you know that i added it in the 439 download thread
Is it cool?
next time i'll ask though
Guess Smoker just want a higher rank to get more stronger people which he can controll to have better chances to catch the SH.
So it's the same you already mentioned
Now, you see why i also say that Smoker-Luffy and Tashigi-Zoro will eventually meet.
i just didnt expect Smoker to actually make it his ultimate mission (or is it). Who is with me that by that time Luffy would have known how to counteract his devil Fruits ability.
Smoker said something like The Marines need a stronger army or something like that right? or did he say he wanted to catch the sh himself?
What he says is that since he is only a captain, he doesn't get that much to say about who he goes after, so he decides to accept the promotion, because that will allow him to follow the SHs.
But I wonder how can rubber defeat smoke.. Crocodile had his weakness (which was water) that Luffy used to defeat him, but what could be smoker's weakness? O_o
Just a quick note... I transed the whole chapter, and Smoker was called a "Commodore" (I checked online dic + the Marine Hierarchy for this) a few frames before that exchange. If you want the full trans you can find it in the weekly trans board. ^^Originally Posted by Hermie
I just wonder if Smoker his going to get a new crew since he his accepting his promotion.
I think he'll get a lot of powerful subordinates.
The ones he had in Loguetown or Alabasta weren't strong.
(I think about more marines with special abilities like DF user, swordsman, martial arts specialist and so on)
Only Tashigi remains
