Chapter looks quite disappointing. It seems it will turn out to be as I was worried earlier at the start of the arc.
Law is finally confirmed as the Shichibukai involved in the samurai beating. If Law could give the WG 100 hearts of famous pirates, I understand the five elders giving him the title. It's potentially a massive power boost for the WG. They are probably now ordering them to do things for them, otherwise they destroy their heart, which would kill them.
By the way, I wonder if some of Smoker's marines may be part of these 100 hearts. If the WG wanted to turn some of them into marines - while other could be assassins, pirates under false flag - the best place to send them would obviouslly be G-5 knowing its unique situation. That would give the plot another interesting lead with Smoker and Law's groups.
Not surprised with Law being a Shichibukai, I've been preaching it since the samurai appeared. I'm surprised with that 100 hearts thing. Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn! What if he used his power to take them, and then sent WG 100 still beating hearts!
About his bounty, it probably grew a lot because of Tenryuubito incident as well as helping Luffy. Then I'm guessing it grew a little more while he was collecting those hearts. Not that it holds any meaning now.
I must say, I didn't expect he was still on the island, but, given the time frame it makes sense.
Don't expect a fight between Smoker and Law, unless Law simply decided he doesn't give a shit about his position any more. It really seems that Luffy will be put in a position to return the debt he has to Law in some way.
It was predicted and pretty much being confirmed with discussions that buggy has been offered/invited to be a schichibukai since he got a msg from bat. but after this chapter confirming that Law sent 100 hearts of pirates to WG (which is totally insane) I am having serious doubts about buggy being invited to be a schichibukai just like that... a possibility however could be that buggy must have been asked to return all those prisoners back to ID (so that govt/marine can save their faces in front of public) and then he will be a schichibukai....
Because compared to law who did such act and BB who captured ace to prove his worth, Kuma gave his will to govt etc... ... feat of buggy was just getting followed by some 3-4 level ID prisoners./... a counter argument could be about jinbei also getting it just like that .. but jinbei also got his name all across the ocean and also he was a fishamn could be a reason...
I think its not just 100 hearts of mere pirates, if just heart form ordinary pirate WG won't be impress by it.
what if that 100 hearts came from former WB pirates?!! that definitely will take WG attention...

the heart thing remind me of Davy Jones from POTC..
Aha, the cover is Disco from the auction house (damn mangazone, who didn't even translate the title). Which mean we switched directly to saobondy
Nice seeing Law again!
Although... I thought highly of him before, and now I'm unsure...
I think he might be a spy, like Kuma was before...
I don't think he's really working for the government... at least I hope so...
Just his reputation is enough to make any shitty pirates piss in his pants, so yeah.
My prediction was correct then i see! He must of planned to become Shichibukai as to not rush into the New World and take his time with Government immunity.
Something makes me believe that by the way they said he sent "100 pirate hearts" he seems capable of cutting a separating body parts with them still living.
He probably made these pirates give themselves up to jail, giving the Government their live beating hearts and giving them the choice of, prison or we stab the hearts?
Sounds plausable and adds to his threatening reputation to get a bounty that high.
Oh boy, those spoilers are so awesome! PH is far better than FI, IMO.
Just want to say that Law new epithet is Cardiologist of Death.

Now that it seems we have seen the 3 samourai body parts, there is still something unclear. How did the bottom who cannot hear or see could know it was Law who cut him and the head knew nothing. And if the 3 parts are connected, how come he never reacted when Luffy took his bottom, whereas he immediately says something when his torso fight Brook.
