I really like the spoiler. The Sea Kings commenting on Luffy is quite epic. It's always epic when Luffy's awesomeness is recognized by "people" who symbolise the strenght of this unlimited world. May this spoiler be real, so that half of my old theory from 24 chapters/4 months ago would be confirmed and the rest still at stake. I'm also relieved the Ark isn't destroyed and can serve its purpose. We would probably learn more about everything - Joy Boy, Ark, Mermaid Princess power - once the Straw Hats and the royal family has gathered ; and maybe the Fishman Dojo. We'll see.
It seems to be agood chapter. It's okay, when luffy fainted... thinking about all what happenend, I've no problem with it.
Great Spoiler, It was kinda clear that Luffy would have to have some sort of difficulty with Noah, Or Shirahoshi wouldn't have had a chance to awaken her "ability". IMO very nicely done, to keep things moving and to irrevocably change things in FI from here on.
Not only does Noah get smashed and beaten to bits, but the story finally get into the "tie up the loose ends" part of the arc...
Ok after re-reading this arc (consecutive chapter after chapter) the flow and tension is really better than the naysayers are claiming... Still nice to see the loose ends getting tied up...'
Early spoilers are also always nice...
Seen the chinese scan that Shamy shared...
Hm, with Luffy being down, Caribou could have a come back next chapter and try to take some mermaids (if he hasn't tried yet in the meantime).
BTW, I'm counting 13 "DON!"

The sea king's that saved Noah are the same that appeared on chapter 101, or at least most of them. The only one that is different has also appeared when Shirahoshi first called the Sea King's.

kinda weird thinking caribou would even make a mess on FI now when the strawhats are around. he cant even do anything when he got stuck inside the barrel in the strawhats' ship. ... that was lame, him unable to get out from that.
Have you forgotten that the 'Caribou Barrel' floated away after they 'coup de burst'ed into Fishman Island and later been found by curious mermaids wich opened it again?
Or were you complaining about that he didnt even tried to fight Straw Hat Crew alone?
I dont get it...
FINALLY! It ends! It really ends! Even with the loose ends this is the last part of this tedious arc! Ok, excuse me for not liking it a lot (even if I understand that it was needed, that doesn't mean that I liked it) but now this is a clear CLEAR end!
Ok, this means that we're now about to know about Joy Boy and Noah in the next arc most probably. And since the prophecy is not yet fulfilled, there is still what will happen with what Shirley said. And Coribou, obviously. But this is still the end.
...Voted Good because it felt short, but it was a nice surprise knowing that Sea King can actually think and quite wisely as well, it was also nice FI rooting again for Luffy and it was incredible the crew afterfight words. Those always are so fun. :3
Luffy is the man! He has such amazing will. He can hear the "voice of all things" This is getting exciting. I can't wait for the upcoming chapters. Finally we can find out who joy boy is and how it relates to noah and how all this will relate to gol d roger.
I gave it epic because this is the first step for luffy to hear everything and become the pirate king. And that fishmen island respect him a lot now! And that last page where everyone is celebrating, i couldn't help but smile! hahahaha
Ladies and gentlemen the future pirate king is coming to a house near you!!!!!
manga is out!

Too many panels wasted on fishmen cheering Luffy on. But who cares, this arc is finally over. Luffy better be collapsing from attacking Noah, not any wounds from Hody, Luffy pwned Hody in one-shot. Sea-Kings were cool.
Oh boy, the rescue by sea kings was so predictable, why didn't anyone predict that? ^^ Although it was a bit irritating having so much cheering for Luffy, it's still a pretty perfect ending if you're aiming for a happy one, since Oda is not showing us these exaggeratedly jubilating crowds just to fill some space.
Now, have fun whining about Luffy not having been able to end this battle with a little wink of his Haki. :P coughwatercough
Btw, it's interesting to see Zoro having it's own panel where he looks up. Is it just a way to show the reader what is being done by everyone in the next picture or is Zoro playing his observer role again?
