I was hoping that Luffy and Law were on equal ground in term of power, with Luffy was perhaps stronger in Haki. Meh, bad expectation I guess.
This just makes Roger and Rayleigh such cool legends, they don't have DF, (I don't think Roger had, hearing voice of all things is not from DF)
Just unabashed talent and pure Strength in Haki.
I wonder why the maskmen cared so much about not hurting the children while they were chasing after the escapees, if the children were just here for M to be part of his experimental subjects.
If it's really a break next week? damn....

Smoker is neither 'dried up' or a 'villain', if he had a humbling moment it was the war when Hancock broke his jutte, and he reacted to that by asking to be transferred to the most lawless Marine base in the New World. It's not like his life is in danger either unless Law destroys his heart (ask all the guys running around with no heads).
Not writing Tashigi off either; Smoker's got his reasons for hauling that idiot around with him. Every time Tashigi's had her ass handed to her after attacking people way out of her league (which always happens) she's always saved the crying for later and gone on to do something about the situation, so I can see that happening again.
What's really impressive about this arc is the New World actually living up to its reputation. I mean One Piece has been getting more chaotic from the start but this is like he turned the volume up or changed up about 3 gears or something. How many Shounen authors keep all that in reserve for half the story?
& wasn't Law made up randomly about 5 minutes before Oda finished a chapter? Talk about characters growing a life of their own...

He seemed pretty important to me due to the fact that he is an Ex-Marine and because of whatever beef he has with Kaidou.
Mind you didn't Drake say something along the lines the WGov is up to something !?
Kind of like Law just implied.
It appears as if every supernova has taken a level in badass. I can't wait to see what Kidd and Hawk can do with their powers now.
again, out of the 5 groups (luffy and co., sanji and co, smoker, law and M, samurai)...who got the ability to do it?
fine. ok. ill give you the hybrid guys...but i think the kid abduction does it for me on concluding law is the antagonist of this arc....i doubt smoker is the antagonist, hell, all he wanted was to follow luffy.

becoz luffy was seen to have struggled with smoker. it doesnt mean though that smoker is gone....nor he is dead, thats a pretty weak guess.
meeting such a fairy tale creature. (Otherwise, as this is a fiction story you could image it is normal to have those beings around there). Now, even so, that doesnt solve the question about how centaurs or hydras are created. Dragon is a great hybrid because there was not sharp cuts on it; that is not the case with centaurs or sheep men: their skins and shape change abruptelly to become the part of another animal. And remember that Luffy and samurai' legs got joined only because they wanted to (the first one to samura's legs and the second to vp dragon) I think, as posted in previous threat, humans cutted by law can freely join to another creaturs.
I'm a little disappointed that Smoker's new jitte is tipped with sea stone. I was hoping that since this is apparently a Vegapunk related arc, Smoker would have a weapons that had been given a df and that Oda would gives us a little more explanation as to how that kind of thing works.
Either way, with Caribou and now Smoker being defeated, Oda is setting up a nice contrast with the first half of the story, where logias could run around largely unopposed because no one was even able to injure them.
The page were Smoker choke-slammed Law, the back of Laws hand doesn't have the target tattoo and he looks vulnerable. The next page the tattoos back & he's in Room mode after a kawarimi. I may be thinking too much about a picture mistake or maybe that attack temporarily broke the technique.
yo, guys...off topic...but since i saw people here saying law took luffy's heart (which is a pretty good theory...i find it interesting, because its creative thinking) here is a link i found you might find helpful....i had a good read.
i would just like to add, that maybe if law can cut someone's head and still talk....maybe luffy can pump his heart when using gear second eventhough its in law's possesion....basically, luffy's heart still reacts eventhough its being preserved by law.
or maybe law just installed some "trigger" inside luffy's body that may disable him when its time for them to fight or something he could blackmail luffy with.
*** i just like conspiracy theories thats why im throwing my ideas...nonetheless, i like how creative minds like this...i always believed oda is like a Renaissance artist hiding "easter eggs" in his paintings....the dude is a genius..thats why i like coming up with my own theories about one piece like....patterns, parallelisms, etc.
(and this guy who writes the theories got really good ideas...i like his theories and who knows he might be right *i think some of his theories are right*...especially with his blackbeard theory and conqueror haki's theory.)

I think that Smoker is still alive.
1. The independent parts of the other people Law cuts remain alive and seem to have some connection, for example, the samurai who can still feel his limbs fighting Brook and Luffy. Furthermore, the section that Law removes does not seem to matter with regard to the rest of the body, because the marines' whose heads are removed from their torsos don't seem to have brain dead midriffs or oxygen deprived brains. Thus, Smoker's heart is probably still beating, and through its function Smoker is still alive. Law seems to have enclosed this heart inside of some sort of cube, meant for preservation, as opposed to simply crushing it if he had hoped to kill Smoker.
2. My second thought is that if his heart remains fundamentally connected to the main body, then perhaps Smoker can still exert his logia powers over the separated sections and simply transform his heart back into smoke and reconfigure himself. My example for this is Aokiji who, after being shattered in the battle against Whitebeard, reconstitutes himself from the ice shards. In general, I'm also reticent to believe a logia can die so easily because Enel, whose heart stopped, was able to restart it through his Logia powers.
3. I posit that if Smoker is currently incapacitated by Law, he still has the ability to free himself through the above method. Perhaps he won't revive himself immediately in the next chapter, so that he can later reconstitute himself to secretly investigate Punk Hazard without Law's knowledge.
just some thoughts.

Based on the next chapter's interaction between Luffy and Law, I think we'll see closer on where who and who stands in terms of relationship with the Straw-Hat crew. Personally, I kind of just want to see Luffy just take on Law and pound his face in. Just my opinion.
