Chapter is out http://www.mangapanda.com/one-piece/683
I believe even with his heart Law is considerably weaker than Vergo and Vergo wasn't obviously trying to go all-out on Law as he barely used any Rokushiki and a bit Vergo as it seems he is pretty good in Haki and Rokushiki, so he will be a damn difficult opponent for Smoker and he is damn fast and that's also will be a problem for Smokey.
So in the upcoming chapter I hope to see a decent fight between Vergo and Smoker. Hope we are going to see some interesting tricks from both of them.
this vergo guy is serous badass i cant belive how law got his ass handed to him... but overal this chapter was bad... i realy dont see much material to discuss abaout as everything we predicted came to be true...
One redeemable thing is Vergo finally remembered that he had a brain and squeezed that heart. Smoker looks determined, expecting a good fight.
Razh, I had exactly the same thought :-) I hope he will get out quicker though.
I wonder why Chopper didn't use the medecine he has found to calm the children or maybe I misunderstood something.
I believe Luffy's real handicap in the manga is his stupidity as otherwise he would have already been tons times stronger than he is now.
The only thing I don't actually get is why Oda is always trying to make Luffy look even more stupid than he is now.
Monet shouldn't be a problem for Luffy to handle. Of course her DF is quite treacky, but after such a training and gaining such skills he should at least take such an opponent as a given. Otherwise what is he going to do against such guys as Vergo, Doflamingo and others?
Unique abilities seems to have caused more trouble than power in One Piece.
I didint post for like million years but all i can say is , bullshit what in earth oda is thinking? I thought it was only kishi who was flippin out.......I followed op for long time but this was the worst chapter ever.waiting for 2 weeks and this is the thanks. SOS
I happen to like this. What did you guys expect, Luffy and SH just ROFLstomping everyone in NW and sailing straight to Raftel without trouble?
^I expected Luffy to be using his Gomu Gomu No Pistol he's been using since chapter 1 to punch people and haki he's been using in every fight since timeskip. Is that too much to expect?
I'm quite disappointed how Vergo seemingly gain an upper hand against Law. I had such a huge expectation that the battle would be at least equal, but owning Law's heart is making a huge difference here. Well, I just can hope that Smoker v. Vergo would be an interesting battle though.
I don't expect Luffy and his crew to stomp everyone in the New World. I'm quite logical in this sense, but I really expected Luffy to grow not only in terms of power during timeskip, but also expected him to grow in terms of common sense and intellect, cause he can't be a funny dumbass all the time, but needs to think at least a bit and adapt a bit.
For me it's quite logical that even someone tries to prevent you from getting your goal you should solve this problem, but Luffy let her get to him and then the only thing he did was the dumbest one.
I understand your point. And I like Luffy's stupidity as well, but in such a world he has to get serious from time to time and not be a clinical idiot all the way round. That's the only thing I'm dissapointed actually.
Well, Monet should be stronger than CC, which was handily defeated by Luffy when he wasn't behaving like a total dumbass and Monet herself admitted that Luffy is stronger than her.
Truth to be told, escaping through the ground was probably the best way to escape Monet's trap, only it backfired due to circuntance.
Not to mention Luffy can use his Gomu Gomu no UFOto fly in that room and then break into the upper floor again.
