Well Ace himself is a pirate too and a commander of one of WB's divisions, so it's not all about that concpet you mentioned why he is about to be executed.
Also since it's the prisonders on level 6 you were wondering about, I think that at least some of them have devilfruits. now we don't know how it exactly works yet, but it's heavily hinted that they regrow after the death of the user, so would they kill them, they'd set those powers free again, which only seems to be worth it in a situation like this with Ace where they can get rid of many, many pirates.
that and that they are quite sadistic torturing those bound to die anyway (do they even interrogate the pirates?)... or it's just a really prolonged execution going on like in a gigantic death machine <.<
What do you guys think about the place where the devilfruits grow? Will the strawhats reach that place? Will they be eating something there? How many fruits are in there? Are they all in one place? Where to people find them anyway, it seems to me that people find them everywhere on the grand line.
I thought Devil fruits are scattered all over the world (well within the GL at least) and not nesting in one particular place??? If I've missed something someone tell me please lol
If you remember, they wanted to get Robin and Frankie to Impel Down so they could start torturing their info out of them.
There are different sentence levels. Pirates with bounties on their head are sentenced to past of their life or death sentence. Although executions are not always immediate, they are tortured before as prisons that spend their days in prison are.
The torture is just a way to say "if you are a criminal, watch what will happen to you".
I'm so happy Robin didn't reach Impel Down, I can't imagine my Robin-Chwaaann being tortured for info!!!
Don't know about you guys, but I'm slowly missing Brookes Skull Jokes!!! lol
I think Robin will get another treatment, after spending some nights at Impel Down ... they might move her to some kind of laboratory. Because torturing a lady isn't cool (like if they care )
LOL well Hannyabal would've been pleased if Robin was an Impel Down prisoner.
I figured that should be posted here too, du ti more attention etc.:
next week (issue 52) there will be a normal chapter of One Piece
however the following week (issue 53) will have chapter 0 (which we already knew) plus a normal chapter as it seems, double fun and now you can - I think - imagine, what the breaks were for.
So it's finally time to masturbate 'cause of normal Manga. XD yay! Odacchi is giving his all for the movie, even while having a break. We will have to see how high the background - character ratio is to determine how much he did actually add to it.
Really looking forward to Volume 0, moreso than the current war actually. Hopefully it gets scanned and translated quickly (though if it's a full sized volume it could take a few weeks for some quality).
Wait...is it just Chapter 0 or volume 0? I remember hearing the movie was volume 0 not just a chapter...(confused)
