come to think of it, it was mentioned by Monet that DD wants to be pirate king, yet, to our knowledge, he hasn't made a move on any of the yonkous yet. Law might be trying to force DD out of his current comfort zone and force him to expedite his plans of being pirate king.
I think Doflamingo will double cross Law, have a contract with the marines to seem like he quit, only till he gets CC back.
Renouncing Shichibukai position means declaring his intentions before he's ready and having to run away from his base to escape getting captured by marines. Not to mention his bounty comes back into play, perhaps bigger than it was before. In that situation, Dofla has to worry about WG, marines, Kaidou and all the other pirates who hate him but were intimidated by his position and all the bounty hunters who want his head.
And he's not even sure he will get CC, but even if he gets him, his cover is blown now and it will take a lot of time for him to start producing Smiles again. Smoker and marines saw too much and Dofla is really fucked if he doesn't have friends in high places of WG to protect him.
But at this point it's impossible to predict what will happen.
For the next chapter, I would like for the story to shift focus on Doflamingo and his crew a little. And maybe to some other pirate crews.
Great chapter! The Younkou Kaidou and the Fleet Admiral Akainu are unreasonable men, and one of them will make Dofla his target! If Law doesn't give Ceasar back after Dofla resign his Shichibukai title, he will be even more screwed!
The thing is that we don't know Doflamingo very well, he seems to have connections even with the WG, as seen in Moria case, Dessrosa seemed special by the speech of baby 5... More than Kaidou, what I am most curious right now is that Oda will explain such an intriguing character such as Doflamingo.
Over time the longer Law is in possession of Caesar no Smile will be produced and that will directly weaken or at least halt Kaidou's power. "The king of beasts" epithet is about Kaidou's possession over a vast army of fake Zoan-users and Law obviously has no intention of seeing it grow. It would also probably make sense that he wants Doflamingo to resign so that he himself doesn't have to worry for a direct confrontation when they are at a meeting at the HQ as well as the fact that a Kaidou running after both Dofla and X-Drake will weaken Kaidou and thus make him easier to target. By that, Dofla is screwed no matter what he chooses to do, Law has no intention of letting Caesar go since he has no intention of seeing Kaido getting stronger. The interesting bit is Doflamingo, either way he will be severely weakened even if Law chose to hand Caesar over, his position as Shichi is what has made his businesses "legit", I'm really interested in seeing how he will deal with this.
I don't think Kaidou got his nickname so recent. I mean artificial devil fruits couldn't have been produced for more than a year or so. CC established his base only 2 years ago. And CC even said that he "heard" one of emperors has an army of artificial devil fruit users. Doesn't seem like a well known thing to outsiders.
Well it's a stretch but I think Kaidou got his nickname way before he started buying those fruits.

Oda just might be trolling us with the whole 100 Beast army and Kaido's name.

Law so far has made deals with DD, CC and the world government and has pretty much betrayed them all. it seems like it's only a matter of time before he betrays the mugiwaras. especially since, i doubt that making an alliance with them was ever part of his original plan, there's simply no way he could have anticipated meeting them on PH and he was visibly shocked the first time he saw them there.
this chapter seems to suggest to me that Law might have some kind of grudge against DD and wants to punish him and not merely betray him. that might be Law's real motive...
Law seems to be putting DD in a situation where he must act and cannot afford to remain idle. DD so far has been a double agent of sorts, benefiting from both the world government and Pirates like Kaido. he will have to lose one or the other or risk losing both.
Law seems to be unhappy with the current cold war-like peace of the new world. forcing DD to make a move will have a domino effect on both the marines and pirates potentially throwing the entire new world into disarray and chaos. which will probably weaken the current powers of the world and open gaps and opportunities to the new generation of pirates.
This chapter bring up an interesting thing about the youko. White beard is known as the strongest man in the world, kaidou is the strongest creature in the world, so what about big mam, shank, and black beard? My guess is shank is the strongest haki user in the world as for the other I'm draw a blank right now. Also this chapter make shank more of a beast then ever, he faces kaido, manage to leave that battle somehow with no injury then show up at the war and stop the whole war, how strong is shank?

Kyahaha amazing chap , i really enjoyed it . It started a little slow but in the end it was amazing . Loved the kids and the G5 marines are funny as usual . I rofl when they said they will start admiring them if this goes on . Smoker's epic face palm was priceless
And finally DoFlamingo appeared in this chap . I wonder what he meant by sky path ? Now i guess it's for sure he can't fly , he's just come up with a way to get to PH very fast and easy in case of an emergency but it seems Law knows him very well (i think he was the one who did something to it )
I can't believe i'm starting to like Law more and more with each chap . He's a clever bastard and has a diabolic mind , can't believe he left Buffalo and Baby 5 like that His request isn't that surprising though . I think he asking that in order to even the grounds a bit . And cngrats to the one who said Kaidou is his client and for guessing about the nickname as well
P. s Loved the snapping "sound" of Doflamingo in the last panel
GOTTA LOVE LAW
man that guy has thought this out well, now the question is what is the history of these two???
you can tell that Donflamingos power and influence must have affected law in some manner for him to seek out vengeance or desire to take donfla down like this
either way an already epic arc just became more epic i cannot wait to see what decision donflamingo makes regarding laws demand, to me taking on kaidou sounds a litte less difficult than giving up his schibukai status. but then again none of us know what kind of monster kaidou is
Anyone noticed the pirateship in the backround on the cover page? atleast it looks like one..
wait a minute
what if kaidou make people eat animal fruits and dismember them to attach it on him? thats why hes called as "it", also thats why HE IS the hundred beasts
His favorite island is a winter island which would be his lair to not degenerate his body

what about the cover? the old hag has come out flying and throwing rocks somehow (magnetism? gravity?) to reject that army,that makes things more difficult to understand. who are they? and why did they recognize their captain in caribo? probably the granny is gonna kick caribo's ass because of the fact he stole things from her.
