A curious note:
Hamburgers are Vergo's favorite food, and that he's been seen with fries on his cheeks, too ... just as they are Franky's favorite food, too ("everything that fits to Cola" as revealed in SBS Volume 45). Maybe he could be turned over by Franky offering some Cola?

I personally think that mihawk was once a prince and that kingdom that he trained zoro at was once his home. He just has that royalty feel to him. His family was killed before his eyes and that whats motivated him to become the strongest swordsman in the world.
anyway everyone is already at the base or on there way so this arc will be wrapping up soon. I think after this arc welgo will have to go back to being a pirate and smoker we become the leader of g5
one thing that concerns me, isnt it odd that we have not seen kinemons boy, not even once i think his son has been dead for a while and he cant handle the pain of losing him and the son he is talking about is some type of toy or object that was his sons before he died
Wow Doflamingo... Didn't see that one coming. For sure didn't see Law as a previous subordinate of Doflamingo. Though I guess it's not as big of a shock as it first seemed. So we get to see that G-5 has earned it's reputation as the "lawless division" of the Marine apparatus... Man Commodore Yarisugi gets under my skin.. but for sure not more than Vergo, who while he might be cool and powerful is IMO Human waste.. A perfectly good waste. Why do I feel so strongly, well first off he's a disgrace to his men, his position, and the respect he has earned. But even more-so to be an underling (no matter how highly ranked) of Doflamingo...
I really hope that Smoker gets to be the one who exposes this whole debacle to the world. It's pretty clear now that Doflamingo will soon have a new issue, how to deal with Luffy... Who has been the "Monkey-Wrench" in his plans.
This is getting good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm interested in how everyone will be saved from Vergo. Zoro and Sanji are still free, but I wonder how much good they will be, considering how quickly Law was defeated. Maybe Kinemon will be the one to defeat him, or at least free Law, Luffy, and Co.
I was wondering about the seastone chains and how it effected Takashi (Smoker) so bad but not Luffy, Law or Robin at all. even though the sea stone chain hurts Df abilitys users, if you got a strong Haki you could stop the effected of the chains, that's most likely why Luffy, Law and Robin is not effected if so its bearly. But on the other hand Takashi is in Smoker body and she doesn't know how to used the stronger Haki powers, because her body and Haki is weaker. Meanin that Takashi is feeling the full effected of the sea stones chains.
Oh and I think Robin Has Haki thats she never showned yet
Another question this chapter raises: How does this effect Law and Luffy's plan to topple a Yonkou? Will they fight Doflamingo first, or will the Yonkou be coming later? Maybe both will intertwine in one, very long saga.
@Uriel: I approve of Robin x Luffy
They were adorable together this week.
But well, this is sort of off-topic
Anyway, I think haki is with their mind and spirit. I don't think ambition is physical thing, just as muscles and devil fruit ability are. Therefore even if their body are switched, I'm fairly certain that they still have control over their original haki.
The only shichibukai relevant to this chapter are Doflamingo and Law. Please discuss Shichibukai power levels in this thread: http://mangahelpers.com/forum/showth...he-Shichibukai
At the bottom of the page Tashigi does look very uncomfortable and asks Smoker what to do about the feeling, so I assume she was noting the effect of the kairoseki. There is no reason to believe it has anything to do with haki though. She is a non-fruit user, trapped in a fruit users body, having her energy drained for the first time. Luffy, Robin, and Law would be more used to the feeling, better able to cope. Smoker is in a non-fruit users body and probably lightly effected. I doubt this is of great importance to the story, I'm not expecting much of an explanation.

if explosion and fire cant kill the slime....im just guessing, maybe brook (or aokiji, if he is still on the island) can freeze it? i mean, i know its on snow but freezing the slime is a different case....nah, brook's ice wont work...aokiji can freeze the slime i think.
Caesar already said how Smiley will be defeated: "It's not a big fan of water". It's weak against water, that's why it is breaking itself down into pieces, rather than cross the lake. Someone will figure it out eventually, and use water to kill the thing.
Very nice chapter. The point that focuses my attention so far is, again, important key. I mean, I try to figure out what could it be with every new chapter I read.
A very exciting theory about it was that, since it is useful in order to defeat a Yonkou, and since it can turn NW into chaos, then it could be something very important for a Yonkou or for WG and hidden by another Yonkou (posted in past thread).
Lord Rayleigh developed this possibility in his Kaido vs Big Mom theory. I was excited with this theory; the possibility to have that kind of battle was just amazing. But, if Do Flamingo is the guy behind CC, the Two Yonkous theory is very unlikely (it would require a huge amount of double agents or something like that).
Then, it still remains and even is stronger now the possibility that WG vs Yonkou theory would be right, namely, that important key has being hidden by WG from a certain Yonkou’s awareness, and it can be used by Law to turn NW into chaos and to defeat that Yonkou. I would like to offer additional support to this theory.
According to Law, to keep his perfect hideout, CC tries to kill (or use for his experiments) every new visitant in PH. Then how could Law and CC’s mutual beneficial agreement be possible at all? I mean Law was once a new visitant in PH; but he didn’t get permission of Do Flamingo, on the contrary he didn’t want Do Flamingo to know about him in PH. But somehow CC trusted him and listen to him and in the end reach an agreement with him. How was that possible?
A very possible reason is that CC trusted Law because he was a shishibukai. Notice the way Law was introduced to CC by his soldier. I mean, CC works for or with a famous shishibukai, Do Flamingo, in a world in which shishibukais works for the same team: WG. A way to approach to PH without making much noise and with possibilities to get that agreement was to have a position of shishibukai. That could be the reason why Law wanted that position: to be able to approach PH or CC.
Notice as well, that the times fit perfectly, because when Law says he wants to take a certain position, after MF battle, CC already was experimenting in PH: 2 years and some months ago. (Please correct me if I’m wrong)
Besides of that, in such a way is possible that WG is the organization behind all CC’s experimentation in PH. (As Kaiten and many others have been written, and contrary to what I have been written. Of course, I’m a little bit disappointed because I don’t see how Oda is going to deal with his contradictory presentation of CC as a FORMER government scientist).
Now, Lord Rayleigh wrote in his theory that the important key may be the very same CC. Such a nice idea: not an object, not a weapon, but a character. That idea fits with the previous theory. Now, in current chapter we have Monet, a very smart an efficient spy, again, not caring a bit about what experiments could CC be making. I say "again", because is the same attitude when some chapters ago she mocked on him about the quality of his experiments. This attitude also is consistent with that hypothesis: the important thing about CC’s experiments is not those experiments, but the very same CC. The important thing is to keep him hidden (maybe without his awareness).
The theories elaborated before are compatible with Big Mom or Kaido as the Yonkou targeted by Law’s strategy. I don’t think that CC’s abilities to create special candies for BM would be enough to turn NW into chaos, as Lord Rayleigh has write some posts before (and if Oda develops in such a way his excellent opera it would be to me a weak plot). But I agree on the point that we possibly won’t know what is the important key and who is the yonkou targeted before a long time.

I'm thinking that maybe Law's crew aren't with him right now because they chose to stay under Doflamingo's command. Their loyalty might probably still be with Doflamingo and Law was the only one who decided to oppose him.
