I think the translation to this manga isn't accurate. Luffy doesn't want to fight shanks if you noticed he is only holding 3 fingers up not four
No, it'll be Luffy taking on Shanks - captain against captain. If anything, Zoro will either take on Mihawk (who isn't Shanks's enemy, at the least) or a sworduser in the crew. Just because Shanks fights with a sword wouldn't necessarily mean he'll fight Zoro. Crocodile fought with the metal hook, but Luffy still fought him when Zoro would have been a better choice against that. Unless Shanks isn't the real captain, he's definitely fighting Luffy. Boss fights boss, it's been like that in almost every action manga, from Dragon Ball series to Yu Yu Hakusho to even Bleach.
For all we know, Shanks uses sword as his secondary way of fighting since it's easier.

Before luffy and shanks fight start, luffy will have to. Cut one of his arm to be a fair fight.
Doubt it, considering Shanks was still feared even among the Marine. Blackbeard and Sengoku backed off and didn't even try to attack Shanks.

To add something to discussion- I liked how Smoker acknowledged that Law could have killed him in many occasions. For me it somehow shows that Law, Luffy, Kidd and maybe some of the supernovas have strenght on "level" between Vice Admiral and Admiral. I like how it sounds. If we have Monstre Trio in Strawhats Crew the we can say that only they make this crew really dangerous. Its not like those crews in new world have many monsters like Luffy, Zoro or Sanji. I know it might be too much but I do think that Law would beat Vergo no matter how Doflamingo marine mole would take that fight- serious or not he would be down sooner or later. So for me this makes Luffy more dangerous than Vergo, Zoro and Sanji- lets say they are equall to Vergo(cant wait for Sanji vs Vergo rematch).
So If we say that crew has 3 Vergos on deck + mecha pirate + amazing sniper + someone who can control weather + guy that controls big crowds + doctor with not known extent of powers who can turn into monster with strenght to literally "throw mountains"(at least tip of one ) + Robin( Im to lazy to go into further details lol ).
Thats crew that has to be acknowledged even by Emperors.
I fell like I didnt get enough of action during Punk Hazard, well I seen some scenes but there was only very few that had big impact so lets all hope that with messing with everyone strawhats will be pushed far in fights soon. Maybe in few chapters. Doflamingo wont kill anyone I think, he will just show us that there are people in New World that are deadly dangerous no matter how long you train. I do hope that it will bring back some tension from before time skip, tension that I someghow start to miss, for me its only thing that One Piece after time skip lacks at least for now.

I wonder what will happen of Smoker goal after that. His aim was to arrest Luffy, but instead he was saved by him for the second time. Also, he was not able to defeat either Law or Vergo so can he still ambition to beat Luffy ?
Am i the only one who thinks it's hawk eyes mihawk. The mystery man, if you see the picture it looks like he's carrying his big sword on his back. and he was sailing alone first time we saw him on a small boat. similar to this. and he's also laid back so it could be him.
I'm interested in seeing shanks crew vs luffys crew. He would probably be the last out of the four (after Blackbeard imo) I think luffy's last battle for pirate king should be against shanks. Also usopp's dad belongs to shanks crew. Interested in seeing how that plays out.
My trolling sensor is off the charts, never thought I'd see this here
Eh well let's forget about this trolling a bit and focus more on the thread before Uriel snaps and delete pages and pages of this topic
As for Shanks, daily reminder that Luffy doesn't want to face him first, Mangapanda's translation is wrong
Damn, now I wonder how Oda is gonna pull this... BM receiving the Tamatebako and possibly opening it, and then Kaido being the Yonko that makes deals with Dofla (still I believe that BM too strikes business deals with him too)
This is gonna be intense
http://mangarulereader.hostoi.com/MA...garule#page=17 hints towards Kidd, Hawkins and Apoo starting fight with Big Mom, it looks like Killer is mastermind of this alliance, he came up with idea to take down one of emperors with alliance of four Supernova and their crews. Sooo with Kidd destroying 2 of Big Mom ships as Tamago said at the end of Fishman Island arc, so with it maybe plan was started? Like attacking those 2 ships might have been first step to weaken Big Mom in a way?
I sure hope we wont get now arc like Whitebeard War arc. I want to see some long full fights not many fights at one time with few panels of each fight in each chapter.
Well, it may also be possible that Law is allied with Drake too, I don't think the guy wouldn't take part into this mess either
