Damn Monet! How can she look so good and be evil on the same time (women ).Nami better teach her lesson.
Im w8ing for the vote to come out so i can vote "bullshit" but i can't so it's gonna be voted as awful. Oda is trolling 2 weeks then Tadah bad\worst chapter.
To be honest I wasn't THAT diswayed by the chapter. As far as Luffy's skirmish with Monet, its pretty much countless the number of times someone got to another in this show because of odd powers. To me it would have gotten ridculous if that had acctually knocked out Luffy, but to me the fact that she got as far as she did was probably to show she isn't one to be taken lightly, which Luffy clearly did in this case. While its annoying Luffy may be in another boa for a while, I did like his attack on the floor to escape since he's really trying to get to ceaser anyway.
Irregardless of that I think the most interesting art of the chapter is Law's brief fight with Vergo. His plan was just about to fall into place so Vergo pretty much did the best thing anyone could have done and stopped Law intirely with a no holds barred beat down. It is jarring to see him get handled this way after his inital rampage earlier in the arc yes however I do like that we're finally giving smoker the fight he deserves. I think that when alls said and done, Law will get his heart back then.
Its pretty much a transitional chapter, Last weeks few chapters were definetly better in my opinion but we still need them.
A good chapter overall I think, although I'm still annoyed by those freakin kids, other than that it was good, the outcome of the skirmish between Law and Vergo was expected, the guy got his heart after all, it's not even a fair fight, but I'm amazed by Vergo's resilience, that's something pretty remarkable, taking some hits from Sanji, and from Law
But I still think that Oda should really begin to wrap this up, it's taking too long and getting a bit annoying on my nerves too honestly
And : SMOKER vs VERGO FUCK YEAH ! Go go Smoker

I don't think Vergo relied on the heart much to defeat Law: Law was shown with bruises and he was panting so he was probably hit normally. I'm not enjoying this pacing at all, i feel Oda could've compressed quite a few pages over the last couple of weeks. I was impressed by Vergo he really seems to be of New World caliber, I don't see Smoker being able to defeat him on his own, hope Law pitches in. Luffy better find something significant in that trash like a hiding Momonusuke that can fly him out. Zoro already told him to be serious about the New World & i count this skirmish as Luffy's loss and a captain putting his crew in danger.
i am starting to think oda has writers block. the chapter didnt give much. we still dont have any1 on SH to fight with. and kids r idiotic. (i am not sure about Mocha in the first place seems like mistake to me) overall dissapointing.
@rosebullet teacher; we think the same thing about luffy finding momonosuke. it seems to delibarate monet mentioned "flying" to get out of the trash.
It seems people think break => epic chapter.
I already said, thinking this way would only bring disappointment...
I don't judge the chapter based on Luffy, since it is too early to say if it was a bad or good idea from Oda. And since the part with Law, Vergo and Smoker was really great, I'm not to disappointed.
The thing that drag this arc since the beginning are the children. But Oda pace has always been rather slow
What kind of fruit has Monet? fruit Snow Snow?
Anyway the chapter wasn't so bad, but still the pace is very slow.
Oh well, at least next week we will see a great fight; Smoker Vs Vergo.
great chapter! law receiving bombs from vergo was nice,although luffy's situation was just to take time and to waste pages,and so was mocha's condition.
Wow, is it just me or does this WHOLE arc feel like extreme foreshadowing of things to come in the new world? You got a lot of things going on and questions being posed all at once. Just lots of new pieces that I think if you begin to put together is a set up to something bigger. What's got my attention is the fact that Caribou pirate is now in the hands of the Marines and whoever is on that Marine ship gets first dibs on the important information on Shirahoshi. Can't wait to see the fight between Smoker and Vergo. I still think there is more set up to come and if I had to guess that for this particular Punk Hazard story line, Luffy and company probably escape with new friends and continuing on but I don't think any clear winners will come out of it, except an angry Joker.
A really liked the chapter. I think it was a "just" great one, but for one chapter to be epic, the others have to be "just" good or great
BTW, I think Monet has a Yuki Yuki no mi, not Logia but Paramecia, like Mr3 wax fruit. And I would really like to know what kind of ability is that of Vergo. Maybe something like an Iron fruit?
