Too many people realized that Caesar has Monet's heart. And it took me the second reading. I guess I'm slower than others.
Doflamingo has become very Charles Manson. I wonder if that has something to do with his ability of controlling people. When Luffy fights him, the way he treats his Nakama will probably contrast with Luffy's (Mihawk also talked about how Luffy has a certain magnetism that inspire people to join him). As far as I can see now, Doflamingo seems to be the most dangerous Shichibukai. Kuma is a government tool (he's like another marine now as far as status is concern). Jinbei, Hancock, Moria rule over an island or very few group of people. Crocodile has a large network but it was all kept underground and only pursue one goal.
This flamingo guy is an all out gangster,. He provides to everyone from Yonkou to World Government. He deals with everything from slave to devil fruit. He has CC work under him, someone who Strawhat wouldn't stand a chance against without knowing Haki, or have fought with Magellan before ( in other words, Straw Hat before time skip). The only thing that's probably not make him a yonkou is that his individual strength is probably not as strong as Whitebeard, and he's willing to work with World Government.
Don Flamengo does NOT want to be a yanko because he NEEDS the some sort of "government blessing" the marine gives him when he's a shishibukai.
he rules an underground mafia network of traffic, slave trade, smuggling, illegal trading/import-export traffic etc etc...
he needs to have a "politically clean" showcase to run his traffic properly.
I don't think he lacks force or tactics to be a yanko.
anyway, to turn back to the chapter, I found it good enough, little disappointed that monet is still alive but that make sense (smoker's right hand is not as strong as Zorro), the cliffhanging will be, monet one inch from pushing the button and CC smashing her heart.
the gang will be out of the lab and will face the two subordinate of DF...two vs 500? who will fight who?
what will the marines do? smoker? everyone on the sunny since every single ship on the island has been wreaked?
To be able to ask someone to die for him...Doflamingo surely is scary. That line alone convinced me, not all the previous stuff. Hum.
And well, amazing chapter! I'm getting used to these kind of cliffhangers by now.
And I think Kinemon will join. The colorspread for me was convincing. He looks as He FITS there. Same with Momo. But most likely people who say that they will be the new "Carue and Vivi" for the New World is probably right.
Good chapter!Interesting fight betwen Baby 5 and Franky.I was looking foward to see it
Got to love Baby 5 in this chapter and i think she gave us the pic of the month
Do you think Baby 5 and Buffalo will already be down ass soon as the rest arrives outside.
Would be an awesome moment General Franky holding Cesar in his hands all worn out and covered in blood.
And Luffy will look at Law with a bright smile on his face.... Law will be like.... ohhhh come on shut up ... don`t act like you planned that one!!
The heart CC is carrieng beeing MOnets is just AWESOME ... this will be the hardest moment for JOker in his whole life ... zehahahahaha
Just freakin lovin this whole Arc till now .... especially compared to FI-arc which obviously sucked!!
I think their fight will be interrupted by the arrival of the the others.
The conversation betwen Monet and Joker remind me of Bane on "the dark night rises" during the plane scene.Sucks for her to die this way.
Also i got the feeling the next chapter will end with a huge explosion,and there goes the last chapter of this year.
i liked the pacing of the chapter. also need to say monet is as crazy as DD is. fight between Baby5, Buffalo vs Franky was funny. i want to see more transformations from her.
about smokers heart i do feel like the above posters as it has a high chance of being monet's. thou will it get squished is another issue.
hopefully explosion will be spectacular or spectacularly fail.
CC has Monet's heart? Any evidence in the manga to show that?
If that's the case where is smoker's heart? Law hasn't given it back to Smoker right?
I also like the idea that Ceasar has Monet's hearth which means she probably won't have the time to press the button that she will already be dead.Still i would like the explosion better though.
CC was just about to squeeze "Smokers" heart but Monet interrupted him. It will be fatal for her.

Wow Baby 5 is quite formidable, she can even create projectiles and can turn her whole body into a weapon. It's expected of Doflamingo's crew. General Franky is holding his own but he is double-teamed so he might have to retreat. It might be too much at this point for him to defeat them both.
I'm extremely confused where and how are they going to go since the whole bunch of characters is at one place and is moving together.
