On another note, the fact that sakazuki instituted a global conscription program sheds some light into what he has been up to over the years, there are probably a lot of more marines now, and in addition he basically outlawed people having strength and not joining the marines, meaning that while they may be stronger they have by default made enemies with everyone that isn't willing to join them, whether they were a pirate or not.
And his gravity is affecting only meteoroids. The range should be whatever distance between the earth or whatever place he is in(sky island or whatever) and the exosphere(the outermost layer of a planet's atmosphere). There's something that bothers me in this regard. In here and here, I don't see anything that hints to a broken ceiling. People are focusing their attention on the ground only. Also, there no sign whatsoever of a broken ceiling. So if the concept I explained earlier applies to his ability, the ceiling should be destroyed, yet it was not. Weird!

Blue Pheasant. Red Dog. Yellow Monkey. Purple Tiger. Green Bull. - not bad.
I find it really cool yet a bit shocking that two of so far known three actual Admirals, the strongest amongst the strong, were not in the marines from the very start. So they were kinda recruited like mercenaries, huh? I admit that they must be insanily strong but just because of that they have been given such trust, responsibilities and possibilities within the marines "corporation"? First thing we should ask is their loyality, their sense of justice. As many of you have written before, Fujitora's might be 'blind justice'.
Sorry to bother you, people, but could someone respond with how is 'Green Bull' written in Japanese? Thanks.
To be frank, I am kinda disappointed - from the spoilers only though. I expected Fujitora to decide to go after Doflamingo since he has fooled the HeadQuarters and let Law flee away from there, that's not happening. What I, on the other hand, find really interesting is his Devil Fruit ability. Creating a huge hole probably with some kind of pressure? Now drawing a meteorite upon opponents' heads? Must be something related to Space/Gravity. Guess we can cross out the Logia possibility, not that it would have a chance from the start but now it's definitely out I suppose.
Black and White? Probably similarity to the Japanese mark of "good/evil" called Ying Yang or something like that - people who know that will excuse me for illiteracy.
Plus points for revealing the whereabouts of the Smile Factory.
Hero Usoland, connection to the story of Noland, dwarves' revolt? How fine could this arc get yet? I bet dwarves are being enslaved and are working in the factory, same as some toys? Time to overthrow the Dressrosa's goverment, I fathom.
Looking forward to the chapter itself and the following one where I would like to see some more of Fujitora's ability, first knocked out people of Block C and some of the side stories - Kinemon/Thousand Sunny/Factory destruction team.

Ao is already used for Aokiji and Midoriushi sounds a tad too complicated for a nickname, so i think that it could be a shade of green, just like Fuji is not purple itself but a specific version of purple (i think it was the "Wisteria flower").
Interesting chapter,although the tournament isn't developed in this chapter either. So fujitora is the one who attacks, and both law and dd are forced to defend. I bet dd would have owned law and fujitora would have saved him. Instead,it looks like an admiral can revoke a warlord's status, cool
Well his mission was in particular to clarify Law status.
Do you remember how we fight about the reasons why Fujitora didn't attack Luffy back then. Now we know !
It would be way more interesting if Fugitora's ability was Rock-Paper-Scissors (Janken Fruit?) Maybe what he used indoors wasn't really meteors. *shrug* You could say those people got "flattened" like paper. It'd also explain the blind person gambling.
Also really happy to see Norland's story in the Gulliver's angle. It seems even a fairy tale gets full coverage in One Piece.

Well, Usoland foreshadowing most likely was that scene which shows Montblanc talking about Noland being called the big(gest?) liar - which makes Luffy look at Usopp. (ch.228) Still it is one of the funniest parts in this arc.
Looks like my hunch will come true. Usop...I mean Usoland will lead the dwarves in war against Doflamingo's crew. I can't wait to see that!
And the 3 admiral names have been confirmed it seems...Yellow Monkey (of course), the Purple Dragon, and the Green Bull. It seems Fujitora has some type of Gravity/Earth type ability. But instead of being a fruit user, I would like to see the Green Bull just be a strong, bad ass Haki user. Maybe he'll be like Garp.
Besides, how would you differentiate between a falling rock and a meteor anyway? How would you notice its combustive glow on a black and white page? It ain't like it'll be having flames all around it like Ace's DF, ya kno. Moreover,if it were just a boulder, where the hell would it come from, eh? Let's assume the dude has the gravity ability. Where the hell did he pull it from? His ass maybe? Supposing it miraculously existed above his head, the dude has to be aware of its presence so as to use his ability. And the dude is blind. So then again how in the scorching flames of hell would he be aware of a rock that has no aura to make it detectable by his Haki while he is blind?
Finally, expatiate on thisQuote:
