Also its very few times that they have confronted each other if you ask me ... and since its the entry to NW and things are going pretty much in a similar fashion as the first half of the story went.. they will confront him and there will not gonna be a fight scene they will just escape again... Anyways.. the whole point is .. I personally don't like smoker as a character .. however i realize and admit that oda do have a special place for him in manga.. sad but true
Going rampage on Banro Island has nothing to do with challenging Ace. It's not like Ace was in charge of that island. BB threatened to sink the marine headquarters, which is a direct challenge to any Marine, including Sengoku and Garp. Just like the SHs declared war by burning the WG's flag back in Enies Lobby. Furthermore as I stated BB did call Garp and Sengoku by name.
Anyway, whether u agree or not, BB was on Shanks and on Garp's + Sengoku's bad side.

As for this chapter, though I voted "average" I was close voting "awful". Simply because the pace sucked. Ever since the skip I noticed a change in pace. Now to compare take for example chapter 490, it was very similar to this weeks chapter, but it ended with a plot relevant cliffhanger. This weeks cliffhanger "the entrance to the new world" could have been easily in the middle of the chapter like back in 490 with the redline. All this new world hype is almost tiring.
Don't you wanna see how will things go now , i personally can't wait though i have a feeling Smoker already knows Luffy can use haki. I wonder how will their fight progress
As for Smoker as a character i like him , i mean he's one of the few marines out there who believe and act in the name of true justice unlike Akainu for example who's methods aren't quite orthodox I prefer him being Luffy's rival than Coby
Anyway, Luffy is now able to touch Smoker, so rest assured, the days of Luffy's attacks completely being ineffective are gone. I think from here on out, we should expect them to fight somewhat equally with neither really pwning the other. Still, whether there's a confrontation here or not, the chase is ON.
*sighs* I'll explain as you read.Quote:
Look in the third panel in the left. It's the face of huh.
BB defeated Ace caught him and became a Shichibukai due to that just to finally invade ID and release the worst criminals OP's history has ever known; therefore, he's become Garp's & Sengoku's enemy. Fact are facts. I am not, as you probably think, contradicting you for the sole purpose of wining unreasonably an argument. Please, don't perceive me as some kid craving for credit.

I think Smoker is not that far really. SH weren't in that whirl for that long. Still, I don't think they'll meet in the next chapter. Seems that the raging fire storm has a priority. Maybe they'll even come to meet that monster granny selling umbrellas. Thinking about it now, she might run a very lucrative business, provided she sells different kinds of umbrellas, fire proof ones, for example.

As for what happened at MF well that's the thing i like about him and i'm referring here at his sense of justice which is the real deal. Obviously he couldn't just stand there and let Luffy pass without trying to stop him , after all Luffy's a pirate and he's a marine , they're meant to be enemies even if deep down Smoker has a sort of respect for Luffy so to say , after all Luffy did save his life so from that point onwards Smoker understood that he's not a ruthless pirate like BB for example. It just he can't help it 'cause they are enemies , that's why he fought with him with all he got at MF and that will never change until he catches him.
a chapter gone for the departure,a chapter gone for the ascent to the surface,hence the next chapter will be focused to Sh's displacement until they reach smoker. although I guess smoker will be the one who will run after them
Given the smoker scenario, its likely what will happen is if they are far away he will realize it and set off, for all we know he might end up at the island they're on when he heads back to G5 or wherever he is located. Given he was suddenly introduced means that its likely we'll see a confrontation before the arcs over, even if it's just another escape one.
what do you guys think the plot will be this time when they first enter the grand line vivi was introduce and were heading to Whiskey Peak from the start .when they enter the grand line they meet laboon an island whale, when they enterd the New World they meet a school of island whales .it the same pattern .im not trying to make an argument . just wanted to point it out

Red sea with flames and dark clouds.... I hope its Akainu or Smoker around..... just being hopeful...
Its obviously the weather in the new world.
I am routing for a big sea battle soon, hopefully some real good action..
I don't know what to expect from a sea battle in One Piece. Oda hasn't finished a single fight on the sea (aside from the attack on Duval) - everyone ended either with the escape of one party or the battle isn't shown at all, and in the end someone reports about it. Though it may be "nice" to see the Sunny in action and used with all channels.
One Piece has gone through the story without a "major sea battle" for tens of years - and I don't think it needs one at all that lasts more than half a chapter.
And if Smoker appears in the next chapter, the strawhats will escaped with Coup de Burst or the help of the Whales and Nami's skills.
The biggest sea battle in One Piece is the one between Shiki and Roger... we didnt see it happen, but we know how it ended, and I am expecting something of those sorts...
Ships battling each other is quite common in fiction, I am sure Oda was saving it for the New World.
