That was Zorro just like most of the members here stated him after the """poor""" performance last week.
But Oda just pushed him far apart all expectations, because now we know he is unbelievable badass but still don`t know how compared to other top tiers in one piece!
So excited to see much more action of him because he is the true monster of the monster trio YEAH!
And btw, did you guys realised the difference between Zoro and Sanji? Sanji said he will die but will not hit the woman, and Zoro said there is no guarantee the animal will not bite a person... May be a forshadowing here...or just a development for both caharcters)
A chapter!!!! Must be christmas
BTW is it me or there was a glimpse of admiration that Sanji had there for Zoro http://www.mangareader.net/one-piece/687/5
Indeed, the chapter deserves to be titled "wild animal".
That one slash from Zoro, without haki, cut the room - as seen on the last page. I wonder if he can cut a Tsumani made by whitebeard, frozen by Kuzan like Mihawk did . I hope no one doubts his CoA abilities now, considering both Tashagi and Monet's comments, on top of Zoro's actions this chapter.
The humour and action aside, the chapter had shown us an insight of this current arcs power levels. Vergo is much closer to the monster trio level, as Smoker is due to Sanji's fight with him, while Monet was like a frog, at the bottom of the well in comparison to them. This only introduces the question as to who baby5 is going to fight seeing as Sanji won't, and Zoro has just made a comment about not wanting to. She might be similar tier to Vergo, so it is a bit of a dilemma trying to find a match up for her.
edit: What if that was a sign of CoC by Zoro? *grabs popcorn*

Clint Eastwood --> bad
Charles Bronson --> worse
Roronoa Zoro --> the worst cold hearted evil bastard
Great chapter, jokes and action. I hope this chapter pleased all the doubters of Zoro. Of course he was capable of using haki, who would freaking doubt that the vice captain of the pirate king wouldn't be able to. Oo
G5:.What's your gonna do if you face a woman?
Sanji: I chose death. XD
And finally that swordsmen pair had a chapter for themselves.
lol Zorro used Conquer Haki to freeze Monet, and cut her without using Armor Haki, so she got cut and split up in to and can't move freely, yet not receiving real physical damage from the cut.
That's purely bad ass!!
Now we've see both Luffy and Zoro with Conquer's Haki, now it's Sanji's turn to catch up with that performance =)
PS. that was the same CoC technique used by Rayleigh at the human auction house, remeber how Luffy and others were froze by the CoC wave that rayleigh unleashed?? Basically Zoro used the same CoC technique to freeze Monet, and then cut her up without using any haki, so she got split in 2 and were stunned. Brilliant strategy by Zoro to cut a girl without actually cutting her lol

I don't think that Zoro used CoC haki to freeze Monet with fear. Zoro was just too strong and intimidating for Monet to do anything. First a small controlled CoA slice to Monet's face to tell that "I'm cabable" and then a power attack without haki to tell that "your life is at my hands".
Pure badassery doesn't need CoC. This simply was psychological warfare.
His eye guys, his eye. This form was always shown by conqueror haki, or by hakiuseage atleast... so we know he didnt used armorhaki...it must be conqueror.
New world, a powerful warrior has come!

Rest in peace, evil Monet!
Oh man!! I thought i will write something about this chapter, but everyone just said it!!!!!! The chapter's title could as well be called :The BADASS ZORO!!!!!! FTW
I wonder now, if we will know ever where does she get his bird shape from...
Zoro is yet to break a sweat since timeskip, can't wait to see him go all out. My favorite character, and what I like about him the most was stated explicitly in this chapter - he will get the job done no matter what. Nothing can stop him from achieving his dream, he will not lose until he becomes the strongest in the world and makes his captain the Pirate King.
I don't think he used CoC against Monet, it's just that he can be incredibly intimidating, like on this occasion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4XN7...d&noredirect=1
I'd like to see him in a fight against Killer, because of the parallel between the crews and their apparent comparable strength, to see how far both of them have gone.
