If Tashigi is able to use hakki to fight Law then I assume that Luffy will be able to. The look on Sanji's face showed that something went wrong before Law switched their hearts. It may be a sign that he knows how to use hakki however, Oda wanted this to happened in order to add humour into the series instead of getting too serious. I beleive that Luffy would be able to destroy Law easily as his hakki power is stronger and above Tashigi's. I alos think that Smoker will not attack instead he would defend his crew as LAW being a bad guy now will try to trap him by going for his crew and Tadhigi will fall for it as the chapter ends with her runnnig to attack Law. I think Luffy will make a big entrance tosave the day in order for the realationship between him and Smoker to build more. After the battle Luffy will give Smoker a ride to the next island. Luffy will recieve a higher bounty but Smoker will disapprove because he doesnt like the World Goverment being corrupt and coveringup mistakes.
Also, later on in the chapter Smoker may leave the marine to join Luffy in the final battles which will see Luffy crown as the Pirate King as well as destroying the corrupt World government.
The whole purpose of this scene is to show Luffy's power. I still hold the believe that Sanji can defeat Law however Oda didnt want it that way because we wanted to use him to create humour. Remember the age range of the manga is about 13+ so Oda did it for the little kids.
GOOOOO SANJJJIIII TOUCH NAMI's PRECIOUS PARTSS LOOOOL

As for Law, imo his DF has enough weaknesses, in my head he was already defeated by Blueno, Robin, and... Buggy.
Very cool chapter. I really liked the little details in this one like the centaur woman's Bambi-like body, Nami wearing Sanji's jacket, and Zoro unknowingly smushing Luffy's face while pawning him off on Usopp (lol). Loved the panel of the Strawhats freezing on the iceberg. The contrast between Robin's normal expression and the guys' exaggerated one is pretty amusing. Law's ability is far cooler than I ever thought possible, but I highly doubt that he's a match for Smoker. It would defeat the purpose of Smoker's character. Shame that Tashagi was taken out though. She should've been wearing her glasses lol. Can't wait for the next chapter.
Um... I'm skimming though looper_10ks (from apforums) 4th batch of the Blue Deep scans... and as it seems at least the one with the long hair and ape face of the centaurs around Boss, ist from the Chahige Pirates who attacked Footvalten. So... Chahige's real name is Boss, isn't it? And his bounty got up 60,000 beri before he retired, lol...

Just read the chapter. Brook is so cool, no pun intended (yohoho). He's really stepped up with his new ability, mainly separating him from the other swordsman that is Zoro. And woot, Oda's making Robin so moe in this arc.
I kind of wonder if Brownbeard (Boss) was a centaur all along, but I doubt that he was. So I'm still waiting for the secret behind these centaurs to be revealed. And this could either mean he defeated Hawkins or he escaped, gah more questions!
And yes, Law just had his power trip, 'nuff said.
Can CoA withstand Law's devil fruit power?
Law just impressed me to no end. I had never imagined him having Haki, and Tashagi also has haki. So it seems that almost everyone that can be important in the NW needs to have Haki or a powerful Devil Fruit. Makes me wonder if Zoro, and Sanji also have Haki or not. Considering Zoro I think he must have already achieved the COO since it was shown before in the Albasta arc. Really wondering where Law's crew is, I kinda miss that bear guy.
Why didn't luffy just used CoC and took out the guys on the other side, he could have knocked them out or atleast make them shit their pants/or just crap on the ice.

I just realized something we all seem to be forgetting....Zoro is one of the supernovae as well!!!! and a swordsman to boot. Am willing to bet that the eventual matchup will be Law vs Zoro, Luffy vs Smoker and if Oda responds to my daily prayer Sanji vs M...I seriously believe that it will be Zoro not Luffy who faces off with Law
I also have the same thought. I think somehow Zoro will have clash with Law, while Smoker meets Luffy, the one he is hunting.
