i hope the chimneys father makes an appearance this arc
so many ways this arc can go. i dont think that jinbei and the sunny pirates will play a part in this arc. i think when this arc is over the NFP's will join with the sunny pirates and leave FI.
i also think that nami is realizing that madam shirley has something to do with this and she is going to talk to her

So, experienced Fishman fighter, creates water bullets/arrows, capable of hurting people, and fishman karate expert, like Jinbei, creates a water lance capable of destroying marine battleship.
However, I wonder if Hodi is that kind of person? I mean his stances are wild and as I said relies heavily on brute strength while the only fishman karate users we have seen are calm and civilised as a typical martial artist. And the "Soshark" skill also seem like a main stream brawler move like Arlong's attacks. I think a FK user would probably punch through it or something like that but then again who knows Hodi might have just learned the arts and then added his own flavour.
naw i dont think that hodi is a fishman karate user, if he was oda would have stated it. i just think he is a pure brawler. man i was sure hoping the great white shark would be a good guy, but o well.
seems like most of the players this arc have appeared already so i dont expect much from the dojo. oda said that it would be explained in an sbs though.
next arc's cover could be 1 of 4 possibilities. either nami's or usopp's home, gammon(dude in the chest) or the place where they fought buggy.
next chapter we will definitely get the reaction to the princess being on coral hill and a bit from zoro and hodi. i also hope we see where nami has went, i think she has went to see madam shirley
Hodi seems strong though not as strong as Zoro not even close, The only advantage he seems to have is being underwater and having a lot of fodder soldiers for shielding. One thing i'm confused about is what happened to the three sons of king NP, they just disappeared after their talk with Zoro.
It was said that the factory of big mom was for making candy, anybody think that its producing the drugs that the fishmen are using or the WG is at it again.

the sons were going to make arrangements for the departure of the SH's, that was the agreement zoro and the oldest prince agreed to.
hodi prolly learned the techniques when he was in the neptune army, and prolly has fishman karate fundamentals in his skills & tech's now

Earlier, when I posted something about Hodi and Jinbei, I got an idea but didn't have the time. Specifically, comparing those 2 and their strength. If those arrows are all that Hodi can do with water, then he's no match with Jinbei, who sends a lance that destroys a battleship with his palm. Anyway, Hodi may be able to do more, but what I'm thinking is, Jinbei should fight him. Not Zoro, not Luffy, or anyone else.
If Hodi gets beaten by a human, he'll just become a second Arlong, a martyr for all fishmen, who wanted to rise against humans, and humans defeated him, and destroyed his ambition. If Jinbei were to beat him, it would just be an internal conflict. Hodi is not a martyr any more, he's a fishman who is beaten by one of the most respected fishmen alive, a famous Knight of the Sea. I could see that being a reason why Jinbei didn't want Luffy to fight Hodi.
Aren't the new Fishmen crew labled as rebels? The current order is the Neptune army, who contains the royalties the ordinary people look up to. Opposing them makes them, in my book, traitors to FI.
I could agree that they have good reputation, but since the old Fishman crew was the direct "heirs" of Fisher Tiger, they were unopposed in terms of popularity. This new crew has the ambitions, but not the reputation.
If anyone learns that they've teamed up with Van der Decken, their reputation will plummet. Furthermore, I don't think the average Joe knows who Hodi Jones is.
Finally, this new crew are like Sub-marine Nazis. Their life philosophy completely sickens me. I simply cannot wait until the SH's takes care of them.
I thought it was quite obvious that the reason why Jinbe didn't want Luffy to face Hodi was because of the whole "an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind" - philosophy. However, I'm sure the assassination have a lot to do with it as well, but I don't think Jinbei will be the one to fight him, maybe finish him off but I can't really see him as Hodi's main opponent.
This leads to another question and that is were are the Sunny Pirates? We know that the New Fishman Pirates have a problem with them so perhaps there might be some kind of struggle between them.
The rest of the Sunny pirates left FI with Jinbe, so that the Marines wouldn't have a reason to invade the island or bring them trouble of being associated with pirates. But it wasn't mentioned if they are active again or just scattered into the world.
Your point wouldn't contradict with Razh's argument.
Is that a logical assumption or does it really say that in the manga? Don't get me wrong, the idea is very smart, but I don't seem to remember anyone mentioning why the Sunny pirates isn't around just that they aren't around right know. The way Dosun said it sounded like if they could return anytime and that this time is the only and right time to strike.
I also think that this page is the answer to what happened to the princes, they as the king is currently being, are perhaps attacked by the New fishman. But that should count up to only two destinations, with the king and the princes, but as we can see there are six commanders and the six beasts went their own separate way. Perhaps one of them went to the Candy Factory?
U guys know how this's going to end up right?
Zoro beating Hodi, making sure that Jinbei would have to fight Luffy (with Luffy winning the fight of course, to prove the point that Luffy is now a bada$$ M#F)
Oh, and the rest are just canon fodder to the strawhats. Either Nami ended up stealing all of the castles treasures or destroying all the enemy ships. Either way is fine. The government would have to increase Luffy's bounty to 1 billion.
