Theories: there are quite a number of parties on PH
The masked people probably took the kids without the consent of their parents thus why the Samurai is looking for his son.
Since the samurai is the only one in SHAMBLES, i guess he met law while searching for his child and got cut up since he annoyed him.
The frozen people the kids are the centaurs I believe, however, the masked people also resemble animals as shown in the latest chapter so that gives us more confusion.
I think Law is alone on the island and is investigating the missing children (I think that would go well with his character)
Sicne there's poison involved, M could be Magellan but i doubt he would leave Impel Down unless Hannyabal took over...
So, they all have a theme to them, but how? Sheep, goats, they're like freak experiments. I knew Law was sadistic, but this is overkill. Changing his own subordinates? Or could he somehow be possessed by something?
What gives with that Smokey form of his? And his bounty, 440 Million? That's even higher than Luffy's!
Funny, Luffy found the legs, Sanji and the rest the head and now Brook the torso? Heh, why do I have a feeling that the legs will be the last to join xD
That giant figure reminded me somehow of Brogy. But how would he be there?
What's really interesting is how the hell did Law manage to turn into that smoke like form. And where's the rest of his normal crew? Bepo and Jean Bard?
Good chapter! I think the best part was with Brook, because it showed how he improved as a swordsman. We saw already that he mastered his devil fruit and music, but it seems it's not all he improved at. Two years ago he couldn't handle a Samurai Zombie (Ryuma), and now we have a living Samurai telling Brook's quite tough. Of course, we don't know how powerful Ryuma was compared to this Samurai, but still, it's quite impressive. He may not be Zoro, but Brook's quite capable with that cane sword of his.
I liked Law's entrance and the fear he inspired in those creep marines. It made me see him in a different light. No longer a superrookie, but a powerful individual with his place in the world, otherwise he wouldn't be a Shichibukai (heartfelt present to the government aside). Just like him to have a place like that as his vacation spot. Wonder where the rest of his crew is. I'm just a bit sad we see Law back so early. I thought he'd show up more towards the endgame again. And please, Oda, don't let him have done anything to Luffy two years ago, it would ruin him for me. I liked the fact that he just did it out of respect for his enemy. Respect amongst enemies is why I love One Piece, and all members of the top of the previous age (Roger, Whitebeard, Garp, Sengoku, Rayleigh) had it for each other.
Curious about the 'boss' Luffy and co ran into. And I lol'd at Robin imagining her and Luffy taking a ride on Usopp and Zoro as they swam across the lake. At least not all her humor is morbid. =p
The gas creature is one big question mark, too. I'm intrigued.
Almost forgot Smoker ringing the bell. The guy's well-mannered! =D
Magellan can't be M.
M seems to be a bad guy, while we know Magellan isn't and won't be a bad one.
Maybe the liquid is Laws blood? Anywho, I loved this chapter, brook was semi cool fighing the torso until he Ran, and smoker somehow makes ringging the doorbell epic XD. Sanji is just f**king everybody up ain't he? My favorite part is probably when luffy though zoro and ussop were gonna swim him and robin over, she was silently thinking it too XD
'coz I Thought Vivire card only works as the life force indicator and a locator only when the actual person is holding it.
Rayleigh left his master vivire card with Shakky, he said, it would be hard for him to move around with it, and just in case Luffy's crew show up, it will lead them to Shakky, not him right?
Then there's this at the bottom of the page. It's as if the henchman is saying - "If we can't be seen and boss won't come out, then it has to be Law, our ally."

There is TOO MUCH going on in this chapter! I don't even know where to start with this comment XD
How does Oda do that? How can he not be confused by his own amount of content in his chapters?!
Hm, lets see.... I loved everything about the chapter so its kinda hard to pick out fav moments.
Brook fighting the torso was funny and cool at the same time (scary strong SCARY!), i also thought for a second that the samurai has 3 swords, turns out it was just two.
Robins imagination is just too funny and Luffy, good god, he is adorable XD
Im not sure if Law freaks me out or if i find him awesome, i think its a bit of both. 100 Hearts? Seriously? That IS creepy but strangly fitting.
And bulding a vacation house on an island like that... couldnt he find a more comfortable place? XD
Also, is anyone else really confused about just how many different groups are now on this damn island?
Strawhats, Law, the Samurai, Smoker, the M group, the centaur people... am i forgetting someone?
Either this is gonna end in an epic battle or an epic escape for the strawhats, i dont care either way but i bet my ass on a battle, simply because of the kids.
Sunny isnt big enough to get all these giant kids off the island.
I also dare to predict that Strawhats, Law and Smoker somehow will end up working together, if Law is not connected to the M people.
But then again, how could he overlook these people? Na, he must be connected to them, would make sense because of the "sick" children too.
Ah, i am so confused! Too much to think about this chapter, its better to stop here XD
Edit: Also, page 05, is that a scar on Zoros back? If it is, i really wonder how he got that, after all, its a shame for a swordsman to have one, right?

LOL.... smoker had the cigar's put in the mask filter..... HA HA HA
I think it is the first time we have some many different groups involved in an arc, if we recap that makes :
- The Strawhats (split in 4)
- The samurai
- The hybrid creatures lead by Boss
- M and the masked hybrid creatures
- Law and probably is crew
- Smoker and the G5 marines
And I'm not counting the children. The worse is that from all those, only M and Law groups seem to be allies.
Even if M group will stay hidden for the moment, I wonder how it can stay this way given the mess the Strawhat are doing at the moment.
As for Luffy and Boss, I think despite Zoro, they will befriend quite rapidly.
Because as I see it, other cut pieces follows the card itself, not a person it made out of.
I hope Law saved Luffy out of respect for his enemy and not because he has an underhanded plan for Luffy.
Let me ask you. What if the person cuts the vivre card completely and gives it to it's friends? Which piece of paper would vivre cards follow then? We know that Ace was at least searched when he was captured and if not, the boiling water in ID would destroy all paper he would have. And Luffy could still follow him.
And Schichi is not required for making shitty pirates piss in their pants... 7 warlords are chosen to maintain the balance of power between WG and pirates..
With this chapter I certainly have doubts on the prediction of buggy a schichi/// however i understand that the black bat confirms it... but it could be a troll from oda ...
i think the pirates waiting on the shore where luffy, is the Brownbeard pirates. the big guy looks exactly like him.
also love the samurai dude, cant wait to see him whole
440 Millions Beli for who ? Trafalgar Law! did he bribe the government officials to obtain such a price on his head ? The Marine is sure generous under Akainu,it's also surprising that he's become a Schichibukai,I mean Law is a strategist,no wonder he sold his A** to the WG yet after what he's done at Marineford,I did'nt expect that one....I'm starting to think that you guys here own a crystal ball when it comes to prediction
It's not like Luffy managed to do all this on his own,he had allies,you simply can't grant him all the credits.....though Law is Overvalued like hell.Quote:
I'm curious to see how the events will turn out......Luffy owes Law BIG time,not as much as he owes Jimbei(though luffy cleared off some of the debt by saving FI)
