You missed the Cover stories. Oda does them very often. They usually explain what happened with certain villains(most of whom will probably reappear at some point) and some are incredibly important for plot purposes. For example the Wapol one explains where the super metal comes from which stopped Whitebeards earthquake and which Franky used to built his robot from. The Enel one is also incredibly important. It shows Enel on the moon with his new army, shows the existence of aliens, why shandians have wings and other things as well. How Hatchi met Caimy, What happened with CP9, how Ace found Blackbeard, what happend to Baroque works, how Jango and Fullbody ended up with Hina and many other things. The only two the Anime showed were the Coby and Hellmeppo one and the Buggy one.
Before I forget it. Zeff ate his leg and Luffy stabbed himself in the eye(the scar under his eye) to show that he is a man.

So that you know the cover pages are divided in two
- a cover story which follows a former villain or informative single covers on friends like we have at the moment
- the strawhats cover (with Vivi and Carue) which are just fantasy covers
They altern each others so once this one is finished, we will have the 11 strawhats ones and only then, maybe, a new cover story. It has been ages since we didn't have a real one, since there was the Strawhat separation covers and the Duo fantasy covers which messed up a bit the traditional cover schedule.
Two years isn't long for a 15 year long running series. :P
sry for the off-topic Uriel or matzik1212 or whoever is in control right now, but everyone will ignore this after tomorrow anyway, so give us a bit of leeway please.
edit: I was against it in the past, he wasn't.^^

Yeah about the off topic discussion i'll bear with it since we had this break and the ideas ideas about the current arc were exhausted. Plus the chapter is going to come out soon.
Though I said i'll bear with it but i don't know about Uriel so i think it's better to stop the off topic right here.
But since they aren't allies of the Strawhats, the CP9 won't appear on the next cover. I guess we've almost reached the end of the "From the Decks of the World" mini story - The former WB Pirates, Shanks, Iva-chan and Crab-chan are still left with their reactions on Luffy's return, maybe Oda extends the series for the rivals or enemies (Blackbeard, Crocodile, Kid etc.)
Next station would be Thriller Bark, but since Lola and her crew are in W7, the old man Spoil is probably next on the cover (maybe with Little Oars Jr. on his grandfather's grave?)

didi anyone thought the possibility Jewelry Bonney came back and used her power to make giants from Erbaf children? that's what I friend of mine told me yesterday? I find this theory improbable,but if oda hadn't got anything else in mind,it may be suitable...
Just to be clear: I'm still in power and I'm the f**** ruler of this place. Aside the admins, of course. And fellow mods. BUT STILL, I'm ruling this section. Lately I've been with tons of exams and studying, so I'm taking care more of the HxH section which is smaller.
In March 15 my exams ends, so I'll be here again regularly to read all your post and bitch all the time about the offtopic. So don't worry guys, you'll feel a pain in the ass soon.
In the spirit of on topic conversation anyone besides me hate when Oda takes a break? I do. I wish one day he came out the cut with a years worth of chapters and took a break for just a month or two so I could read them straight. I miss those days. I don't know at all where the current story is gonna go but it's getting better. I expect to see someone we've seen before very soon and more new characters. We might see some real giants soon actually I mean they are their children or they will be escorted back to elbalf before or after Wano.
