Wow ! I'm frenzied to learn that this guy is not Joker nor Vegapunk ! With Monet and Wergo - who I think work with Joker - we have a completely new organization showing off. That reminds me the good old time of Baroque Works ! I'm also glad that it finally confirms that New World is nothing like Paradise with Ceasar beating Smoker and Tashigi, and 3 of the Straw Hats including the captain, and with Wergo beating Law with ease.
I'm conscious that they were in a particular situation so that they got beaten but it is the proof to me that there are likely a lot of people strong enough to defeat the Straw Hats. We already had a glimpse with Pekoms beating Caribou the same way the Monster Trio did but some didn't want to admit it meant their new powers were common in the New World.
I hope these last two chapters will shut the mouth of those who were telling that Luffy was already high-tiers or Yonko/Big Mom's level. Their power-up were simply for them to get a chance in New World's universe, the same way the Monster Trio's childhood training gave them a chance for Paradise. Now, they still lack fighting experience with New World's people : they will power up the same they did from East Blue to the first time they landed on Sabaody.
Chapter is already out !!!
And the cover is ultra cute :-)
The chapter showed us an interesting and powerful guy who might either be a part of some Government fraction that has its own agenda and Law knows about them and this organisation funds CC for him to continue his experiments or it might also be an oranisation under a Yonkou (Kaidou or Big Mom) or maybe another powerful NW pirate who isn't as strong and powerful as Yonkou, but still quite powerful and influential to make such an organisation oand infiltrate Marines and WG.
This new development can open tons of posibilities for plot to progress. And I really like parrallel with Baroque Works. I also like how Wergo uses CoA Hardening Effect, the same way Luffy does. And now it's great to know that there are tons of new guys out there who are stronger than Luffy, Law, Smoker and Zoro out there.
I'm skimming through the RAW on Mangateers and ... those Marine soldiers yell something about CC having Haoushoku no Haki/King's disposition?! ö_Ö
But maybe I'm misunderstanding that page and they are surprised that Luffy was being beaten as Haoshoku no Haki user?
edit: LOL, Nami's body acting "out-of-character" is too great...

What the hell did Sanji do to the shark on page 12 ...
i get an awesome feeling about that ! !! !! :-)
I have to ask, Is that a piece of steak attached to Welgo's face? I can't tell. XD
Other than that, it was a good chapter, and Kinenmon is such a BAMF.
Yeah Wel(r)go is certainly a Barouqe Works type of fellow, working secretly, scheming up a plan and so forth, even infiltrating Caesar. The thing on his face is important as well, probably some weakness, or secret or just a fashion statement. xD Certainly we are in for another batch of chapters of mystery plus added with the original story for this arc of rescuing Kinemon's son and the other children.
Oh and by the way Caesar looked super cool when he knocked out everyone. On Kinemon joining .. I think we can be pleased with him being an ally to the crew for now, for most of this arc we will hang around with him, maybe Wano is the next destination?
Kinemon was really badass. I really like his fighting style. So if Brook managtes to use Freezing Flames from Hell, then Kinemon can use Blazing Flames and he might be a great addition to the crew, when he manages to rescue his son and take him back to Wano. Might be a great trip to finally see Wano and also get a new member to the crew.
About CC... I believe he didn't use CoQ, but used some of his gases that he can produce to make his opponent get unconcious.
I guess the black arm of Vergo is some kind of Armour haki too. Yet, so far only Luffy blackened when he used it so it is still kinda strange. In the first page, he is referring to a "he", my guess is that it is Joker which would reinforce him being the organisation chef (can SAD be the name of this organisation ?).
As for the Kinemon for Nakama, we would have brook ice against Kinemon fire. That would be nice (especially since they are the same heigh) but judging by the last page, it looks rather like a way for Zoro to learn a new technique
chapter was great btw love that SH and Law was taken out so easily i had some concerns after FI that the next couple of arcs would go the same way and the SH would steam roll their way but wow first real fight and luffy was beaten completely nice wake up call NW= Hell.
Well, make his followers believe that he has King haki his just a continuation of them being tricked by him.
wow cutting actual flames....kinemon is a boss...still dissapointed by luffy and co though...i think wergo is not as powerful as his intro seems to suggest...i think there is something he has over law giving him this kind of advantage and i feel that once whatever it is is taken away he will cry. about cc i guess even seasoned haki users need gas masks when fighting this guy. he doesn't present as strong but his df is hax...wow nami's body can handle geppo...how sweet is that.........i think the significance of kinemon cutting fire(not df related fire but actual fire) is a significant step towards zoro's mastery of swordsmanship in battling the elements...i think there is more to elemental cutting than just haki and maybe kinemon will show it...wow great chapter.can't wait for next week
