Fantastic. This arc will be more action-fight oriented than two last arcs. Just what I have been waiting for.
This would be nice occasion to reintroduce capitan Kuro for example, I kind of liked him and just small detail that catched my eye when he fought Luffy- He was able to injure Luffy with his attack using hand/ leg(dont remember) so perhaps he might have Haki if Oda remembers about it. But probably he will be in picture when we will get to see Helmeppo(Kuro made his father lost hand and jaw).
Lots of new names in this chapter- its very promising! I normally try not to point new nakama but this new girl is first person that really gaves me that feel and with fire logia she would really be some force.
Hope that Sanji and Zoro will get some action as good as Luffy is going to get in this arc.. Time for all out fights of our strawhats.
Jesus will be beaten by fat guy from Doflamingos crew(Wise-Marcho orMacho-Wise) - not killed coz it would be messing with Blackbeard but beaten, it would really hype Doflamingo pirates as crew as people who could have put up a battle with Emperors crew and in a way defeating them by strawhats would be step towards defeating their first Yonko more believable for me.
So, a few interesting developments we have. A ton of newly introduced characters, including Rebecca whose back story sounds interesting. Then of course 2 surprises with the comeback of Bellamy and Jesus Burgess (doubt Luffy is gonna fight him, too early) but the most interest thing to see will probably be Luffy´s behavior in this chapter.
So the blind man is the legendary gladiator right?
"Former bounty hunter and mastermind behind blowing up a government facility, Abudhulla and Jet"
LOOOOOOL Why does a guy by the name of "abudhulla" has to blow things up? As a fellow muslim i should resent that. However, that made me laugh so hard. Who knew Oda thought of us like that hahaha... And no i am not offended i just had to point that out.
Interesting chapter though i want to see Luffy owning everyone. And this Rebecca girl sounds interesting that has a deep history with Doflamingo. Maybe Luffy will see something in her and may give her the mera mera fruit..What do you guys think?
Jesus should be stronger than any of Dofla's henchman, or at least at the level of diamante, I guess. He's a captain of a Yonkou's division.
i think kyro was part of roger's crew back in the day! anyways blind dude is kyro. settled. lol bellamy coming back is a disappointment... i thought he was eliminated?
For people saying that Luffy will fight Jesus or fight and have real problems with him- he most probably wont fight him- someone else will take him out after close fight or he will get somehow disqualified- he might be a problem for Doflamingos/Diamantes plans.
About Jesus and his strength I will say only that Ace was 2 years ago so strong that Blackbeard said that he is no match for Ace, not even close to being able to do anything against Ace. I know that he is one of Blackbeard top member but he still has lot to learn. Luffy now is at least as strong as Ace was when he died so still lots of catching up for Jesus to be able to fight Luffy and be real threat. Luffy is destined to fight his capitan so I cant see him having real problems with one of underlings.
The interesting part with Jesus apparition is that the final one on one confrontation with Blackbeard pirates that was almost a given for some of us may be not that simple. Since we have the focus on 2 new characters, I guess they are good candidates for wining their groups with Jesus and Luffy that would make 4 (imagining they are in different ones). I guess that the 4 winners will fight the 4 Donflamingo family members in the 2d round.
Holy Jesus!! shit is about to get fucking serious
Oh yes, this is what I LOVE about this manga. The world and it's inhabitants are so extremely intertwined, and then Oda brings a little fan service with Bellamy, but I'm still looking for Don Krieg and Gin!
I still think Luffy will eat the fruit by accident... Like always...
And I agree... Rebecca for Nakama!
I wonder if Luffy's group C will give him any trouble or if he'll just Conqueror-Haki them down. Anyway, can't wait for those pictures! I want to see Rebecca and Luffy as a knight in shining armor!
