chapter 589 ? If that's not emotional, nothing will ever be. :/ Why did you switch to Soda in the last post?XD
I'm not declined for a reappearence of Sabo, but it was Oda, that drew a fictional cover with all three alive, with Ace not having a messed up tattoo. I'm sure he didn't write it all on his own, as there are quiet a few mistakes in them, but when it's confirmed twice, facts speak against him being alive. And is there a HQ raw with the 668 cover? One showing three cups? Three cups could be for WB/Ace/mourner. Sake isn't exclusive to ASL. That page in 589 is the sole reason, why hope for Sabo still exists, that can't be denied.^^

Schabrak:for me how the flashback was and that page in ch 589 and this cover i belive 100% that he is alive,we don't have HQ raw yet but i'm sure there are 3 cups and if it was for Ace/WB/mourner i don't think Oda would put them just in front of Ace grave,i think it was for Ace alone and that Sabo put them there and the article from newspaper.About the databook for me there are the"facts" that the people in manga belive that he is dead(Dogura confirmed in the databook what he sawin the manga that his ship got blown just that and that "he was dead shot" and i find hard to belive that Oda would say in a databook something else from what he put in the manga for a character that he has future plans,like i sad in the databook those "facts" are confirmed for characters in the manga not for us),belive me but for us readears Oda put that page to think about it.
Been a long time since i last posted here, but... here's my take. Certain keywords that points that the alliance target is Big Mom.
Candies, children growing BIG, children getting addicted to the candy/sweets that CC gave them.
It might be possible that BIG MOM's enormous size and her being addicted to candies/sweets can be linked to CC.
But yeah. Whatever. A prediction on a prediction page.

I don't mind being sarcastic. Passing judgment on Caesar based on his pulling a gun on Law is silly. He's a logia, weapons and drug expert, with a 300million beri bounty. That should have been enough of a basis to rate him, without dwelling on a single, meaningless frame. Is he going to be the strongest character in the series? Obviously not. But he will not be weak, which should have been obvious from the moment he was introduced.

about what Law stated,which not even robin knew about,isn't that giant experimented by the world government oars? in fact,the warlord was talking about hundreds of years,that's why that picture reminds us of ozu.
He did, so? He learned the basics from his first teacher, created his own style and discovered new things. Asura is just a variation of his spirit which he surely trained directly or indirectly. The same applies to his third sword. In real life it is the same, you learn the basics and then you apply them in your own way no matter whether you are a martial artist or a mathematician.
First, see above.
It is a very difficult task to master haki and it takes a lot of time. In my opinion the power balance would be disrupted if Luffy had to be taught while his crew mates were able to find and master this power on their own in just two years.
Other characters, who are not part of the SH, are a different story.
Anyway, I do not share your opinion and I hope you are not right with this one.
Everyone was hoping to read the name of Yonkou Law has in mind, and then Oda troll us with that silent dialogue . That was the most hilarious feuture of the chap... Then i read Uriel's nice "you pick it" comment :-). It maked me laught and also wonder if followers could get trolled again by Mr Oda on this issue...
... PH could still be a superepic arc, better than the previous ones. Who knows!
Ey, we could have Sanji's body spanging Namy's body for being so lustful with her. Also, who knows...

Law once again was the most interesting/intriguing part of the chapter for me. Him realizing more and more what an alliance with a strawhat means : lot's of problems :-)
Also we learned a bit more about the shichibukai character. He seems to share a lot with Robin, the intelectual and cold type. He has no problem with pirates being the bad guy. In the end, he didn't really cared about the kids being drugged and seems to treat his crew more like subordonates than friends. I guess living with the strawhats for a while will be surprising.
I'm really looking forward his duo with Chopper. I hope our little doctor skill will make Law realize he as not made an error in this alliance and that the Strawhats are not just a bunch of weirdo.
I also wonder what was his real aim when he came on the island, last chapter he was talking about a WG secret, now about kidnapping CC. It also seems like he didn't tell much to Luffy and Nami about his plan, so I wonder what Luffy's decision was based upon. The good tving is that it seems the rest of the heart pirates will appear soon again. I wonder if half of Luffy decision is not just meeting Bepo again :-)
And the slime looks like the big enemy that was needed so that everyone has his part of action.
And i can't imagine Robin just plainly telling Luffy "hey i also can use haki you know " It's not in her character . She didn't even tell the crew she was alongside Dragon these past 2y after all .
In fact, that chapter was very emotionally for me, it just wasn't because of Sabo weird off screen death, cause I didn't see him die from it.
Any slim chance, is a chance of survival after all.
The very fact that it looked so obvious that such an important, young and loved character was killed off screen was too suspicious.
To boot, Dragon did carry an extremely hard wounded onto his ship moments after? Isn't that suspicious to you?
Try look with it from an investigators angle, police eyes or detectives judgement rather than outside sources, it seems too suspicious to me.
In the end, if there is doubt to his death, and it's written for children/teenagers, do you really think he would on purpose make someone look dead and make the reader stay in doubt on his final death? That's bad story writing even for a grown ups story telling, at least to me.
I don't buy the "he's a kid, so I'll kill him off screen in an explosion to avoid drama for the reader" reason, and to boot make it look like Dragon saved him.
