Now I would say the chapter is really damn great.
All the crew was great, but Usopp was the most hilarious this week. Nami and Robin were as sexy as always.
The Punk Hazard island is totally crazy. There are several posibilities from my part on how this island my be like this:
1. There was some Government's experiment that provoked such a disaster and it might have been made by Vegapunk. This Island might have been Winter Island, the same as his birthplace and he wanted to try to heat it up with a special system, but then something went wrong and then is what we have now.
2. There is also an option that it's a natural disaster due to this enormous Dragon. It might have been a Winter Island, but then the Dragon came and started to burn everything or he might have been provoked by the citizens and then destroyed the city with flames.
The interesting thing will be if Luffy manages to tame the Dragon and make him his pet)) Would be really awesome.
Also Zoro was as badass as ever. He is really damn muscular)) Smoker also looks badass and now he has only one ship, thus he won't have any advantage in ship numbers over Mugivaras.
So now it's going to be interesting was it the Dragon who was behind the call? And what's gonna happen.)
And also it's hinted that Luffy's crew will get to Wano Country and we'll see them fighting Samurais and it will make Zoro and Brook progress more.
Also I love the Icebarg cover and Smoker being absolutely badass I did not mention in my rant post.
Poor Usopp, that was so long since he didn't make a disease joke. I'm so happy !
I'm sorry for the guys who wanted Smoker near Luffy. But at least he makes an apparition and he knows where is luffy. What is the range of a black den den mushi already ?
This island is really crazy. I wonder if the Blaze/Winter change will remind luffy of Impel Down hells.
And Razh : CONGRATULATION ! A Dragon appeared after the end of Fishman island. I must apologize mocking your prediction :-))
Although, I wonder if after the whale last week, Oda does not continue is comparison with their entrance in grand line. Having the Strawhat, Smoker and a Dragon in a same chapter feels really nostalgic.
that girl on the cover was at secretary audition
i love robiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin loled at how she feeds luffy
though i didn't like the drawing of dragon, its still exciting
milky road was good too. i dont know what mugiwaras would do without nami

Could it be this the island which Admirals Akainu & Aokiji fought on?
I loved this chapter. The interactions between the crew members, Nami's milky road, the new island, Smoker and Tashigi, Luffy being himself... This chapter is a good example of the things that make me love One Piece.
Why do I get the feeling it was the dragon saying he was cold?? And that's why he's burning everything.
Of course that doesn't explain the person getting stabbed. *sigh* another mystery.
I wish I had the power to not read One piece for a year.
(Yes, I'm on fanboy mode now)
WHAT IF the ex-boss Oda said that will join the Mugiwaras was not talking about Jinbei BUT Aokiji? I know, too far-fetched. ._.
This chapter really gives justice to New World's hype. Now I'm even more excited!
many questions are surfacing here...
Could it be Punk Hazard = Wa no kuni? The samurais are there, even a dragon.
I have a wild theory : The government's sign probably means the country has been taken down for a while. But now the wa no kuni and the dragon clans are somehow cooperating to regain control over their country. Thus, It could means Revolutionary Army might have been behind this scene.
my 2 cents.
Yay! What a fun chapter! I haven't felt like posting comments in some time, but this chapter was too cool to ignore! So many continuity references!
First, I get the impression that the island is supposed to be a winter island, but then Something Happened at that government base to create this flaming disaster zone. I think the base was probably some kind of science lab (I mean, Punk Hazard? Vegapunk?). I would love to hear more about Vegapunk this arc!
There's also the idea that this was where Aokiji and Akainu fought, but if this island was closed 4 years ago and they fought in the last 2 years, then probably not.
Second, Ryuuma and Wanokuni callbacks! We've heard about Wanokuni vaguely before with Ryuuma, who is said to have defeated a dragon when he was still alive. Now we finally get to hear more about Wanokuni, and we even have a dragon (Zoro was wrong! They do exist!). I do not think Punk Hazard and Wanokuni are the same island - Brook said the government stays away from Wanokuni, while here they once had a base.
Is the dragon here on the run from a samurai which is hunting them down? Baseless prediction, but somehow it came to mind...
Ah, I'm so curious! The wait for next week's chapter is going to be difficult!
EDIT: And apparently I type too slow, loads of people said things I just did, haha
