i dont understand how will Brooke become stronger maybe with new SKULL JOKES
Me I don't know what Oda will reserve us, but I believe that chapter 600 will be memorable in an epic way...
I believe that's when the team will finally gather for good. Oda won't show much of the Straw-hats training. I'll bet he will do a small description of the important events of these two years without much details, and then the story will proceed...
Usop will certainly change, but it's weird to imagine him all buffed. Considering he's a snipper, shouldn't he be more like stealthy or so?
I can't imagine the other character change? What do you think he'll change. Franky will change but still be the same. Brook is a skeleton, so how can he change? The most important change that the characters will experiment are a grow in mentality, power and experience... The rest might just be clothing and one or two tattoos...
Even so, it will be epic for sure because it's Oda's One Piece
I hope that everyone will come back with a slightly older look to them. Luffy learning haki is a must for his character's developement. My only problem right now is how much of a waste I think ace was - no disrespect to the Ace lovers out there. But I am disappointed in him, now that we see what the players at the top powers are. No haki advancement or training and he was sitting with whitebeard for at least 2 years. I could understand crocodile and buggy but Ace showed his haki from when he was 10. He couldn't release his handcuffs or use the Kings haki once while sitting there, even rayleigh uncuffed hisself and took off the collar with his haki, sorry for the rant. Luffy is gonna annihilate the first person who gets in his way when he comes back on the scene.
What are trying to make out of Ace? He was still pretty much a rookie, a strong one though, far from his own prime. His two decades older brothers [Marco/Vista] weren't even able to use much against Akainu. Nor was Whitebeard shown to be able to fully utilize his haki abilities. Having the COQ doesn't make somebody king of the world. You are comparing Rayleigh to Ace here, someone who's got whole decades to master haki, someone who wasn't weakened/restricted by the handcuffs. Luffy on the other hand will have 700days ~ 17k hours just to learn the everything possible about his potential of haki usage.
Oda will introduce everyone in a new mature fashion, only to then have Luffy swoop in the same ridiculous, semi-retarded, hilarious and adventurous self and the crew will rejoice.
We will rejoice too.
actually, when it comes to the handcuffs, they were made of seastone which makes Devil fruit users lose all there strength and feel like a helpless child, Rayleigh doesn't have a devil fruit so the handcuffs had no effect on his strength or anything of the sort so you can't really use that as a reason to show how weak he was... If you noticed, as soon as the cuffs came off he was basically as good as new right away.
Ace was no rookie my friend, he wasn't a rookie when Luffy saw him in Alabasta, he was already a commander of Whitebeard. He took down pirates in the new world for whitebeard and made a name for himself there as well as the other seas. All i'm saying is that he was next to the strongest man in the world, whitebeard was rearing him to be the next PK, yet compared to the big boys he falls short. He learned nothing in the new world, didn't develop or show his haki like we expected. Rayleigh is showing luffy the basics, someone from whitebeards ship had to talk to him about strengthening himself. He ran after blackbeard and got his ass handed to him, Luffy went through hell and back to get him, and all he does is fire techniques when he got free, and he is already aware that he has the Kings Haki, Come On Man.
OMG !!!!!!!!!!! THIS is how Usopp will look !!!!!!!!!!!
