In the end, a great chapter for me. I like it how Oda puts the myth of the Yeti into those two brothers: Huge bear-like humanoids to show up and appear in a wink of an eye which is why no one can say if they do exist in the Real World or not. I wonder if they are both like Chopper: Animals with a Zoan fruit and able to transform into huge beings like Chopper's monster point or Impel Down's awakened Zoan users Minotauros, Minorhinoceros etc. Since there's only one unique DF power at the same time they likely use different models?
And CC pointing a pistol to Law makes me wonder if CC has some Kairoseki bullets (like the "gaol ammunition" from Impel Down the wardens were yelling for when they faced Crocodile in Level 4.) At least he doesn't want to endanger Monet who still is useful to him.
BTW... It seems confirmed that Monet is a normal human and that she either is a DF user or has been modified ... Look at her body in the short flashback. I'm placing my bet on a harpy DF though - or a "standard" bird DF while Monet only uses a harpy form like Marco.
To pick up the discussion on her joining the Strawhats: How CC handled Brownbeard and his men, I think Monet might become useless to CC at some point, too...

Why does everyone see a devil fruit in monet. The only time she was fully human was in the flashback before law arrived. Isn't it then logic that she asked law to modify her like he did for the other ? Why not ask to a power up when you can especially if it is the ability to fly. Plus it's not has if she can't change back
I must admit that I am not that happy with the current arc. For me it is all to confusing, I miss a real structure... there are so many side stories and so many characters involved and the only real fixed part is Clown Ceasar.
I hope it will get better soon...
About Monet, I would like to see a Monet vs Robin in Lab's library. They resemble each other in some respects: like to read (they prefer to read instead of being in the midle of action), tall women, beauty... It would be pretty nice. (Btw, for that resemblance I dont see her as a nakama)

I'd like a DF transformation more than a body modification as it didn't seem necessary.
You said you prefer the devil fruit option and my point is that i don't understand how it can be a prefered option when the modified by law one is more logical
Now the mysterious one is still Law . I don't really get him at all . What is his purpose. God i don't have a clue about him *sigh* Still a thing is certain for me and that is that his crew isn't nowhere to be found which is a strange thing . When he mentioned to Luffy they both have things to get back he must have referred to his crew IMO .
As for Joker i still think he's that guy we saw talking with DoFlamingo . I just don't feel the need for Law to call a fellow Shichibukai like DoFlamingo on a code name . This Joker dude is for sure someone in a very high position who has his own interests and by helping CC he is getting nearer his own goal .
I would like to hear Monets back story. At first i thought she also was one of the criminals who lost their limbs, but after seeing her as a normal human, that can't be the case. We know that Caesars goal is to do some illegal chemical research. We don't know what exactly, but at least we know the direction. Monets goals for serving CC are unknown, which opens up another mystery in this arc.
Additionally, we've only seen about like 50-65 canon devil fruits while there's still Oda's statement from Volume 4 SBS that more than 100 different fruits exist. So it's not unlikely that Oda just put three more ability users into his story with Monet and the Yeti Bros., as Clown just turned out to be an ability user.
I still say the law option is more logic
On page 3 and 6 you have almost 2 identical scenes. Law, mone and cc chatting in his office. If she had a devil fruit wouldn't it be logical she stays in the human form which is probably the most confortable one in such case ?
We have plenty of hybrid creatures which are officially created by law, isn't it more logic that this one is the same ?
I don't deny the df is a possibility, i'm just surprised most of the readers prefer the farfetched solution.
Or do you want me to oppose your option so much? I'm open for both though I'd like the DF solution more than the body modification. So there's no need to argue on that - you can still go on if you like to though.
When we 1st meet CC remember that he also preferred to stay in his DF form and we even thought he was a failed experiment back then . Now we know for sure that he has a DF , the gas DF so Mone staying in Harpy mode doesn't necessarily imply she doesn't have a DF and is the result of Law's doings . It may be that just as CC, she feels better in her DF form . More relaxed so to say since we saw that they don't completely trust Law so her being constantly in that form may be a form of defense Hmm don't know it's just a thought though
Anyway i also find her an interesting character . CC trust her very much it seems so she must be really dependable . But i'm still not very sure about their relationship . Mone is a very smart girl , i'm sure there's also something she's after in all this story
While I was thinking about Monet during this chapter I can not claim that her wings were the body part that drew my attention :dare
What really caught my attention this week were hints about why Law is on Punk Hazard. He wanted an island that is not logged and is willing to ignore CC's activities in exchange for access to the research material at Punk Hazard. Obviously he became a Shichibukai to avoid government harassment while carrying out his plan. This must be related to whatever he wants to regain, there must be information in Vegapunk's old notes that can help him regain whatever he lost. Even more interesting that hew did not know the children were drugged, and his anger upon learning the truth. While the topic of Monet's wings are truly fascinating and relevant , I really want to know what Law is planning. And I really want to know what he will do next chapter. I assume he is going to fight the Yeti Brothers and save the Strawhats, but that remains to be seen.
Why is everyone so surprised that CC is so sloppy? Law himself was critical of CC's naivety.

Cf post above for logic
Kaiten, I'm not sure law searched for an island without log pose. My understanding is that he wanted to come to punk hazard which proved to be difficult due to the fact it had no field to log to
Your remark about him searching the thing he lost is interesting but how do you connect it to the fact that it would make luffy and him meet again ?
Ok mangastream's translation is waaay different in the part where law talks about joker.. in mangastream's law says that he won't tell joker about cc's toys implying joker has no idea was going on.. and in the other law tells cc to not tell joker law is on the island. Can someone please clarify.
