But we shouldn't forget the marines. Because of them I can think of one chance for the SH to get their body back: If Law looses to Smoker and Tashigi the SH could ask him to return their hearts in exchange for his rescue.
I'm glad some of the strawhats got their bodies switched. They're too strong already, they need a handicap. It's like when they had to fight underwater, and they still beat everyone to a pulp. And seeing Brook kick some ass was great! I'm surprised he isn't cold. "45 Degrees! Ah - but this is much colder...!"
It looks like Law ability allows him to cut through anything even sword.If you take a look at the last panel you clearly see that Tashigi was blocking his attack but Law went through anyway.
About the CoA topic,Luffy vs Kraken literally gives an idea about how strong he is and how could use CoA in order to fight Law.I can see Luffy in Gear second imbued with CoA all over his body then he call it "Darkkk Gearrr".
And that's a really good point! If Law swapped the hearts of prisoners and put them in the bodies of children so they were harmless. But then I'm still confused as to why M and Law need these children in the first place? Let alone why they'd have children and adults and then swap their hearts...
I think I'll wait for Odacchi to clear this one up before I confuse myself, haha.
Brook is such a bad ass, at this rate i even think he has Haki http://www.mangareader.net/one-piece/661/9 but it only comes out when hes angry but this is only my opinion :P
I dunno, maybe the kids' hearts are in stasis or something? I can really see Law saying, "*Sigh,* I almost had the kids, poison, and everything else fixed. You guys really caused trouble You have to stay on the island until I cure everyone."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramanujan ... just saying that it is possible. There might be even more examples of other fields that didn't need a teacher. Fact it, that you can learn things a faster way if you are told how to do it but a downside is that some people just do what they are told and replicate the said things. On the other hand if you need to learn for yourself you're more inclined to learn the things thoroughly.
That said I might add that there are things that are easy to learn by reading a book, things that are hard to learn and things that are near impossible to learn just by reading books but still there might exist some people who are able to.
To stay on topic I will go back to the actual story (here I stop refering to Zehahaha's post):
While Luffy, Zoro and co. had exceptional teachers that is by far no reason to say that they are the strongest supernova or the strongest whatever. Maybe Law is a natural genius if it goes about haki add this indeed awesome DF et voilá. Maybe Luffy and co. were some of the few rookies at SA that didn't know haki too well. There are many reasons that should slow down arguments like "Law should not be able to put up a fight against Luffy" etc. because if that would be the case there would be no reason for the build up of the rivalry of Luffy, Law and Kidd (just to throw in another argument).
