My thoughts on OP 893

Cover Page: Continuing on with the Leo arc, the dwarves check out they're ship some more... huh now I'm reminded of when the Gorgonites were given a ship by Alan at the end of Small Soldiers to search for they're homeland except here it's going to be dwarves just searching for adventure. Though 5 points if one of them while sailing out goes "I hope we don't get hit by an iceberg" or mentions Encarta... remember when Encarta was a thing? Cause I do.

Review: At first I was honestly kind of wondering how to feel about this chapter. As this is the first time in OP where we actually get the old shonen cliche of the "this is a manly fight to the death between two men we're fighting with our honor and pride" between Luffy and one of the villains that actually showed the villain in a sense being honorable about it. I mean the whole battle of men thing was kind of mocked or made kind of as a joke with Franky vs Senor Pink in the battle of Dressrosa when they kept tosing the word around and making over the top ridiculous speeches about it while launching stuff like baby bombs and nipple lights so it was sort of a lampoon. This isn't the case with this fight as at least this part isn't supposed to be a joke and at first kind of seems odd for someone like Katakuri to do. Who is shown yeah to not be like the most vile or horrendous monster in comparison to how evil and backstabbing most of the rest of his family is, but is still someone who is about efficentley wiping out a threat as quick as possible with his future sight and moving on. However when thinking about this whole entire encounter and this particular part I realized something that made it work. And it wasn't just the "haki is built up fighting stronger opponents" thing or whatever Rayleigh that honestly does feel kind of there to justify Luffy getting stronger without really training here. But rather something that connects at a character level and honestly does raise Dogtooth up as a character, even as a villain;

The pride of doing the job himself and wanting to see it through to the end.

Because honestly on one level, taking this blow and ending the fight here should still be a perfect mark on Katakuri's record. The only reason Luffy lasted so long is because of how many time he's run away or how other people have gotten in the way like the whole "hiding out to regain my haki" strategy seen with Brulee. Really feels only natural for karma to come back around to Luffy to loose a fight in a sense at the beginning he had no chance of winning and kind of lucked into lasting this long. However to Katakuri at this point having fought Luffy for so long and having constantly seen him evolve and get stronger and survive his assault over and over, is more determined to ever to win on his and only his terms. It's obvious he doesn't particularly care how the rest of his family see him at this point and even before he seemed to hold up this image more for the sake of just generally being left along and wanting to do things in his own way. And even though he would still hold claim winning the battle this way, he doesn't see it as that if someone else got in the way and made him deal a critical blow he didn't earn. Honestly it's like going through a level of Bloodbourne and at the very end someone hacking they're way into the game to deal a strike on a foe you've been trying to hack away for hours: even if you hate that foe and want him to die you want it to be on your terms and not have your victory cheapened by the actions of an outsider. Most other main villains wouldn't care about such a thing but to people with a pride of they're strength and abilities to do anything I can see this bothering Katakuri and honestly him spearing himself and removing his mask to tell the others not to interfere does make a lot of sense and honestly does explain Flambe's role in this fight: she was here to really show the difference between Katakuri and the rest of the family in terms of how they deal with problems. The others probably would just seize on the Straw Hats or anyone else in an instant of weakness not caring how much it was earned but Katakuri wants the fight to be his own and wants the win to come from him. Especially from someone who has proven now to be on his level and not just a lot of the weaker opponents he can instantly house in a second. It does work and showing bits of his pass and him walking and thinking as Flambe is either praising him or dissing his looks work especially the ending of the two unleashing conqueror's haki to knock the others out.

So honestly this chapter is actually fairly solid for what seems like it going with this shonen cliche as it actually in a sense deepens the villain a bit more and makes this battle feel more important. I've been championing before that Luffy vs Katakuri should end in a loss for Luffy so they can have a rematch battle in Elbalf (again obvious the Straw Hats will get away and the Big Mom pirates will wind up chasing them there and be the major villains of that arc as that just makes too mense for them not to do) and I still feel that way but having it end in a way where Katakuri wasn't satisfied and felt it was fully earned so he would also welcome a rematch fight makes sense now so kind of hoping that happens but still solid chapter. Really I don't know why people are getting bored with this fight since other things are happening in chapters that don't focus on it and the ones that do are actually quite good.

Chapter 893 was pretty sweet, Katakuri's great character development,

Leo and his crew inspecting their ship, sweet.Luffy vs. Katakuri continues, poor Luffy did took a nasty bruise, but still stands to be invincible to fight back, great of Luffy.Flampe attacks, but her needle attack was sweet though, and nice seeing Luffy's training with Silvers Rayleigh.Nice of Katakuri to have honor to want Flampe to not inferfere which was great, this a battle between the men dumb fangirl, hehehehe.Katakuri stabbing himself was crazy/hardcore, and in Katakuri's flashback, I pity him next to Pudding on getting bullied due to his sharp teeth.Flampe wanting to expose Katakuri's real face, it will fail though, but nice of Katakuri being honorable though.Both Luffy/Katakuri knocking out Flampe and her minions with the Conqueror's Haki was pretty sweet.Both Luffy/Katakuri continuing their battle respecting each other was great.

OP 894 is out and here's my review.

Cover Page: The Tondatta instead of going on they're pirate journey are now escorts to the Dressrosa royal family for the Reverie.... I guess that's why they're arc hasn't really involved them leaving the country yet. That reminds me we still need to see this reverie. Will it be this year or will Oda somehow extend this story even more to next year? Have to wait and find out I suppose.

Review: Well it seems like the very least we're drawing closer to the climax of this battle between Luffy and Katakuri as it ends with Luffy going Gear 4 "Snake Man" so yeah guess there are multiple variations of Gear 4 like people predicted after Tank Man so curious how that will go. I admit I actually do like the montage of the two battle of Luffy taking serious licks but still standing and occassionally getting a bit of a hit in. Part of me would still like to see Katakuri win or at least the two tie and him be someone we see as a warrior again but let it be said that if Luffy wins this is one he certainly earned and this is certainly him expanding on all of his limits. I also liked how this started with a Rayleigh flashback and those "oh I sense anger" when Luffy like accidentally smashed the guy's lunch was funny and I do like expanding on the strength and talk of Haki. Part of me was "isn't it a bit too convientant they talked about someone who can see the future" but I guess it's a Haki power other people have and obviously this bit was chosen because it pertains most to the flashback as it's not like the two just had that one talk over the... two years of training. So that works.

The rest of the chapter were also showcasing other bits happening over the two hours. Most were amusing as I liked the Fire Tank pirates continuing the chase with the cake and Chiffon getting them to go quicker (though aren't they still planning on killing Big Mom so where does the whole "if she survives and comes after" attitude come from? Yeah I know we know they're going to fail but they aren't suppose to know that), Jinbe and Nami managing to evade I guess Smoothie's water soaking blasts (yeah for Smoothie finally doing something. She better be a character saved more for another arc though I swear), Sanji going with Pudding on the carpet to help rescue Luffy (so yeah he also better get into a battle during all of this as well) and honestly I think even Oda was bored with how many members of the Big Mom family as him introducing them as "30-34 members etc" and "yadda yadda yadda" proves he was kind of bored coming up with designs and ideas for personalties though I like actually seeing Snack and a lot of them being "ugh really all of us were gathered for this? I'm taking a nap."

So yeah funny bits and good action as we do really seem to be heading to the climax now so curious how that shakes out exactly but good chapter here.

Chapter 894

My thoughts on the latest chapter of One Piece.

I think we are headed for the climax of Luffy / Dogtooth, about stinking time. Well than I think in a chapter or two it will be over.

Now the cake delivery I think Ciffon she is not going to let Bege just leave the Strawhats out to dry here, but Bege like all of yours knows they will be fine anyway. Big Mom she is not even human anymore.

No Brock she is not a giant, if not we would have fewer problems with Big Mom temper.

So Sanji and Pudding are not really married? It would be interesting if they were.
So are we going to fight the whole family, looks like.

Chapter 895

My thoughts on the latest chapter of One Piece.

So the Luffy / Katakuri fight reaches it climax. That is pretty much it. Just a lot of fighting, which I am sure a lot of people like, and I don't mind either, it is a quick read.

So the fact we have no chapter next week, lets me to believe next the week the fight will conclude. Either Luffy will win or I guess a draw. Will Luffy has won Katakurii respect at least.

OP 895 thoughts

Cover Page: The Harujdin mini arc finally starts with the ship heading away from Buggy since yeah remember they were once his most powerful troops but now they serve Luffy. I don't know what makes me feel more sorry for Buggy: that or his face here is his first time in a 100 chapters he had an appearance... and he only previously had an appearance a 100 chapters before that. Granted it's not like he's supposed to be a reoccuring every week villain but he must be mad that he seems to only appear at most now every couple of years... granted not like he appeared a super lot of times in the manga in the first "half" of the series but still.

Review: Well seems like this was the last full on chapter of the fight and I have to say chapters like this prove that honestly it's not that Oda can't write action anymore it's just that we usually don't see this sort of spectacle on display and it's only reserved for a very rare occasion. But this certainly being one of them makes sense and it looks honestly just really cool and impressive. Seeing the whole Snakemen being Gear 4's speed form and it having Luffy's fists constantly bouncing off or twisting and gaining speed to strike his foes is honestly really neat. One of those things we sort of saw before as more an accident like fighting Eneru except now more serious and vicious. However like with Doflamingo getting the first gear 4 I like how this isn't a total clean sweep victory. It gets some good hits in but Katakuri realizes what's happening pretty quickly and strikes back on his own and his roll in a ball Donut and spike grab Luffy to toss in the air and hurl him down looks like a really painful and powerful attack so it's clear he's getting his shots in. Also like Luffy's reaction to that is to pretty much just let out all the frustrations he's had throughout the fight about being hungry and being annoyed Dogtooth is still standing and wanting him to fall before a big old back and forth slugfest which we really haven't seen before. Honestly I think one other big reason haki became a thing is because Oda wanted that sort of fight with Luffy and his opponent but since Luffy is made of rubber no standard just impact shots are supposed to hurt him but now with Haki that's different and honestly it works here, especially the two charging they're last attack and only seeing the after math not being sure who won. Again part of me hopes it's a tie to leave things for a further rematch down the road (i'm sure everyone would want to see another one of these fights albeit shorter in the future) but again, Luffy put his all into this and this was not a cheap or easy encounter and was by far if not his hardest fight overall, certainly the one that pushed his limits the most since the time skip.

So yeah really good action chapter. Sad next week will be a break but honestly after stuff like this Oda's earned a bit of time off though with this fight pretty much over the arc should be wrapping up pretty soon I'd want to hope.

Chapter 895 was pretty sweet, Luffy's cool new technique Snake Man and the final climax of Luffy vs. Katakuri,

Cool seeing Hajrudin.Luffy vs. Katakuri continues, but Luffy's new Gear 4 form variant: Snake Man is pretty awesome with a sweet design looking more slimmer and has increased speed bending his limbs in several different angles called Python, a sweet new ability to clobber Katakuri.As the battle continues, Black Mamba and Zangiri Mochi are pretty sweet new attacks shown from them and preparing for their final strikes, King Cobra, another awesome new attack shown as well.The following final clash creates a huge explosion, of course I know it's Luffy who won, I'll see next chapter as much as the great Luffy vs. Katakuri fight is finally completed.

Chapter 896

My thoughts on the latest chapter of One Piece.

So Luffy and Katakuri finally comes to its end. Well a great fight, looks like Luffy gained his respect. Still looks like someone is about to ambush him, I wonder if Katkuri has enough strength to get up and take care of him for Luffy.

Pekems is still around I guess? And Bege showing some character growth.

The chapter title was about Pudding one last wish and we never get a clear answer to what it was. So something to do with her memory powers? Maybe I guess we will find out. If we can't take her with us, or have her join Bege crew, I guess could be our inside person to the Big Ma pirates. She would be a great spy, if she gets caught, just erase memories.

OP 896 is out and here are my thoughts.

Cover Page: Pretty much just a shot of the giant pirate leader Harujuidin which I guess is cool but... that's it so moving on.

Review: Though a fair amount of this is repeating the fact that the Big Mom pirates have a "we know Luffy is coming out here and we have all guns raised on him" repeat, that is important as yeah that's obviously the last really big hurdle the crew have to get through and will be curious to see how they do so. I do appreciate even the Big Mom crew acknolwedging how much of a screw up Brulee is considering she's been captured... what 5 times now in this arc? Yeah she may have a good power but once you get past that she seems pretty easy to defeat. Also like Big New Morgans wanting a scoop on this whole thing and being threatened that he's going to be writing how superior the big Mom pirates are after they're supposed defeat of Luffy. As well as bits of Bege still running and seeing the Straw Hats even wonder if Luffy will remember the meet up time as that's a pretty funny joke. There are two moments of this chapter worth talking about though.

Sanji and Pudding: Eh I still hope we have more of that bitterness between Pudding's two sides but I do like how there are still some jokes about that. I also like Sanji sneakily waiting around as yeah he is the best honestly at infilitration of the Straw Hats so him able to hide so easily makes sense. This is really only worth pointing out as a scene because of the unknown promise that Pudding is talking about. I'm guessing it's a "I am going to make you forget about me but please try not to forget about me in your heart" or something like that with her memory powers so we can still have bits of Sanji flirting with other women even though in a sense he's technically married and for that not to be a plot point until we see the Big Mom pirates again, more on that later. Part of me does hope it's something else and something that has a more meaingful moment not there just to sort of revert that part of Sanji but that seems like the most obvious way for this to shake out but eh Oda has thrown curveballs in this relationship before... actually most of this relationship has been curveballs thinking about it.

Luffy and Katakuri ends: And yeah we finally get a true end to this fight and... I guess technically Luffy wins as he is able to get up later and not pass out again but I still feel it's much more a tie at best considering how many times Luffy only got up again through running off and rebuilding up Haki and having time away from the fight to figure things out and the whole "fighting stronger opponents makes you stronger" thing but again at least it was an earned somewhat victory. I do really like seeing both of them fall like that obviously totally drained and honestly Luffy only getting up again remembering his promise and knowing he has things to do and Katakuri getting up quickly to pretty much ask Luffy for a rematch. Though again we aren't going to likely see Tottland again but rather again have Big Mom be the antagonist of the Elbalf arc. That would make sense and be perfect grounds for a rematch fight which I don't know if we've ever had the grounds to have a big antaognist come back in OP before to have another big fight with Luffy but I could and would easily want to see it happen here. Also like how we see Pekmons show up in disgusie having Bruelee. Again though this really should mean that PEDRO IS DEAD because Pekoms is helping the crew out in disguise for the sake of the memory of his brother. That'd kind of be ruined if Pedro is still alive so yeah please let this one stick Oda.

So though mostly after math and set up for the next big confirmtation it does really make you antipcate next week quite a bit to see how this one continues on so yeah solid stuff here.

Chapter 896 was pretty sweet, great Luffy/Katakuri moment and Pekoms' return, sweet,

Hajrudin becoming a pirate captain, sweet.Luffy will be ready for them with Big Mom's forces surrounding the last remaining mirror.Sanji/Pudding's moment was sweet, Sanji wanting to help Luffy escape and love it with Pudding turning good and being a better person after being a horrible psychopath witch and the best love interest for Sanji next to Nami, Viola, and Cosette:anime:.After the climax of Luffy vs. Katakuri, they have a great sweet conversation which Katakuri develops and respects Luffy and his Pirate King goal which was sweet, he'll be a great future ally next to Hit/Jiren:D.Cool seeing Pekoms/Nazomuzu to join Luffy and has captured Brulee, Luffy finally reuniting with his friends to face the Big Mom Pirates, sweet.

Chapter 897

My thoughts on the latest chapter of One Piece.

So than could this finally be the climax of this arc? Luffy and Sanji finally together, ready to take on the enemy head on.

So than Peckems doing what he can, he is now label a traitor, so no going back for him.

The high light is the Germa 66, okay let's if they can live up to the hype. I can't wait to see what happens next.

My thoughts on OP 897

Cover Page: The new shipwright of the Giants Pirate branch of the Straw Hat fleet is some giant named Stansen who... has a decent design though I hope the rest of this mini arc isn't just giant splash page of these giants and we have more of you know a story with them. I know Harujdin wasn't everyone's favorite Grand Fleet leader but surely he has more of a story of "I left Buggy's crew and now here are shots of me and my friends" to contribute to the plot.

Review: You know sometimes it's nice that instead of having some big overly elaborate plan with like many steps or something like that, we have various characters trying a plan, and it not working but then another character coming in to sweep things up. Since yeah Pekmos whole "i'll become my giant Sulong form to give you an escape to get out" didn't work (I don't want to keep harping on this point but the whole "only Pedro could stop me" better not be code for Pedro still being alive as the whole point of Pekmons doing this was because that moment was supposed to be a sacrifice so Oda better not ruin that) as again everyone figured out it was obviously him (I'm sure we've had the "guy cannot disguise himself at all even from the stupider characters in the series" moment as yeah no one was fooled by Caesar Crown's disguise either but a good joke used here) and took him down easily enough, but it gave enough time for Sanji to try escaping with Luffy having a cool moment kicking someone away. But then of course with like a huge fleet trained on them there would be other people who can sky walk and he gets knocked down, only for that to be Germa's cue to come in to make a rescue. Just a lot of good points coming together to cover honestly only half thought out plans but honestly they all work. I also like Smoothie trying to tactfully cover where the Straw Hats pirate fleet will move (thinking about it we haven't seen super long actual pirate ship chases in this series. I know the crew has escape from being chased b the marines before but that usually takes... a chapter or two. This has been going on for at least a dozen), how clearly out of it Luffy is even without haki but his little exchange with Sanji and Snack's expression finding out the fleets are being takne down. not much to this chapter as it was a bunch of splash pages of all this action but it's good flowing action and seeing the Big Mom pirates still mixing it up with the straw hats this way is good stuff though again I don't think this is the final showdown with them and we'll get that at another date but still solid stuff here.

Chapter 898

My thoughts on the latest chapter of One Piece.

Well than what a chapter, the Germa is really redeeming themselves for easily being played by Big Mom. Some of our heroes are wondering who sie the Germa are on, the Big Mom tried to murder them, I think we can assume they are on our side.

Most of them are horrible human beings, but you can't deny how awesome they are in battle.

And Reiji saying how anyone that messes with her little brother has to answer to me, that got them there in heart. Finally coming out of her share and showing that big sister love for Sanji that we knew was there.

As for Judge, I don't know I could see him dying at the hands of Big Mom, if they were really want to do the redemption with this character.

Here's my thoughts on OP 898

Cover Page: Oh guess we are just getting shots of these guys as this is of the Giant New Pirates navigator, Road. Again okay design but does Oda not like have a story for these guys like he did for near everyone else since again just seems like we're seeing them instead of... seeing anything with them.

Review: This is pretty much the "Vinsmokes cover Sanji's escape with Luffy so he can make it off the island and onto the Thousand Sunny" chapter without really much else happening. However since there is a lot of action going around in this chapter i don't mind that the plot is very straightforward as the action itself is solid and there are still some pretty solid moments. I honestly really like Ichiji's line of "oh there were a bunch of weaklings who came after us but we just pushed them off to sea. Besides even if our scientific power was stolen, what could you idiots even do with it?" A lot of people have thought the brothers despite being jerks had at least cool designs but honestly I haven't really seen it come across properly until now. Yeah before we saw them take on members of Big Moms but that was more in conjunction with other attackers and here it's on they're own and I'm glad each of them had they're own moments of taking out goons in cool sort of two page spreads with light speed swords and breaking rock assaults and poison mists and the like to really show them off. I guess it does make Sanji look kind of weak to constantly be saved but eh no one honestly really looks that great in they're own rescue arc as his whole role was about saving Luffy and he still got to kick some fools down so that was nice. Plus I like the various character moments of Tamago realizing how they screwed up with the Germa, Brulee breaking down revealing Luffy did defeat Katakuri and the big mom pirates anger and shock of that and then even more angrily gunning for Luffy (this is again why we are getting another arc with these guys as they have even more reason to hate the Straw Hats) and the crew's happy reaction seeing Luffy and Sanji heading towards them. Of course I think there's still Smoothie's ship but I have a feeling there's a reason we didn't see Judge here is because he's probably going to do something to stall her so the Thousand Sunny can fully get away next time. But yeah solid just action chapter with that one main goal getting a good send off to these characters who are fully making up for totally screwing over Sanji before.

Oda has been doing Sanji dirty imo, he hasn't got a good battle or victory since post time skip and this arc has been crapping on him for the entire time. Niow is ****** brothers are upstaging him an telling him how weak he is and turn making him look like a chump. Sanji isn't even my favorite Strawhat member but by god Oda give him a good win.

Chapter 898 was pretty sweet, Germa66, such awesome new allies,

Road, best navigator of Hajrudin's crew.Cool of the Germa66 crew Reiju/Yonji/Niji/Ichiji to fight Big Mom's forces and great of them on wanting Luffy/Sanji to flee.The Strawhats to change locations from Sanji, sweet.Of course Big Mom's goons will know of Katakuri's defeat like Cracker's defeat though.Both Ichiji/Yonji easily crushing Oven/Yuen was pretty awesome, the poor losers, but Oven getting damaged was pretty brutal, go Ichiji.Niji saving Sanji by throwing him to the Thousand Sunny was pretty sweet.Reiju stopping Big Mom's soldiers was awesome, go Reiju, awesome big sister ever, and sweet with both Luffy/Sanji on the Thousand Sunny, finally the Strawhats are all reunited, yaaaaaaay:D.Oda loves to do jerk moves on poor Sanji as much as Sanji will never get a major fight and victory in the Whole Cake Island arc, but he'll get one on facing the horrible Beast Pirates in the Wano arc though maybe.
