    I've been loving these last handful of chapters and really hope this is sign of what's to come. Probably the first time I've been outright excited for One Piece this year.

    I brought this up in the spoilers, but it feels weird that the strongest bad guy samurai is the moneychanger for Orochi, rather then someone a bit more...."official"?.

    He's basically the yakuza boss. If movies haven't tricked me the yakuza are the badass of Japon.

    So with evil japon I'm not that surprised the yakuza are top dog.

    I mean as in, I'm surprised Orochi doesn't have an official samurai force like he does for his ninja.

    I'm not sure about anything? I'm not even saying anything specific about Apoo. He almost certainly has a devil fruit, especially after the data cards.

    Just saying, *in general* there was no confirmation 100% for sure that was the case. Easiest most direct conclusion isn't always the result. There's always possibilities for something more interesting being at play. JUST being a devil fruit is actually way more boring.

    Oh sorry I meant the poster above you in regards to Luffy having supernovas on his side. You just hit reply like 2 seconds sooner. I originally tried editing the quote but I find that a pain in mobile.

    Ehhh oda's been generally pretty consistent about magic either being DF's/Haki

    At least compared to stuff like dragonball and other classics

    You ca ay its lazier for it be a devil fruit, but one could also say its an asspull for some outta of nowhere technique to come into the story after not being mentioned for 900 chapters and only applying to one guy

    He's keeping it lowkey for a reason.

    We had a chance to see how Kyoshiro takes liberties to do or organize stuff without waiting for Orochi's approval. He definitely has his own agenda and keeping Orochi in place of power suits him for now.

    He could've been in good company with miss magic mood paint and guy who meditated to allow him to control his own hair, the king punch, whatever hakuba is, electro and whatever form of music magic Brook wields.

    The only times you could question kyoshiro is when he says orochis is coward or when he lets komurasaki live. For the coward part, everyone thinks orochi is coward among his subordinates, and the komurasaki part could be some viola- doflamingo type of hate love.

    It was confirmed that he has Devil Fruit. In SBS I think.

    His fruit gives him more power - more damaged in fight he gets, he becomes more powerful until he is KOed.



    Sorry, he was confirmed to be Devil Fruit user in One Piece Blue Deep: Characters World (p. 232)

    Might do you good to read between the lines a little.

    His every single appearance and action so far has been suspicious.

    Im thinking kyoshiro might really hate orochi but be loyal to the position, such that if the scabbards beat orochi before kaido lost he'd serve momo and fight kaido if he isnt trashed by then

    This was definitely the chapter I've been waiting for. After all these weeks, build-up becomes action, and it doesn't fail to impress. I'm sure there are some out there who are disappointed there wasn't more onscreen clashing between Sanji and Drake and Zoro and Kyoshiro, but I've come to really like the more set-piece driven battles of recent years. It lends the action a great sense of speed and chaos, cut between smaller exchanges and skirmishes within a hoard of opponents, something that action purely centred around one on one fights can struggle to do without tanking the pacing. I'm not saying there should be no one on ones, but I'm all in favour of saving them til they really count going forward. Things like this and the fight at the wedding on Whole Cake are more than enough to cover me in the meantime.

    Also Franky and the rest jumping in once things began to heat up was great. I love having the crew (mostly) together again.

    Kyoshiro's line, "I am the Shogun's dog," feels like another moment of suspiciously performative loyalty to me. I don't know if I fully believe he's Denjiro yet (though Artur has put forward some excellent points for that theory recently) but I'm sure this is one of the moments we'll look back to when his real deal becomes apparent.

    Killer as Kamazo is a really interesting move and not at all what I expected from him. I wouldn't have said at the time that Kamazo's demeanor matched the brief glimpses of Killer we'd seen previously, but I guess there's some debate left about how much Smiles affect a character's personality beyond simply warping their face into one expression. Not to mention the stress that would have come from Killer either having his spirit broken like what they're trying to do to Luffy and Kid, or having to go undercover. Regardless, Kid's concern for his friend is really touching considering what a scumbag we already know him to be. I wonder how far it extends to the rest of his crew, whose names I now remember thanks to the Vivre Cards, and hopefully Oda does too. Heat and Wire, where are you?

    And on the topic of Killer, I saw it suggested on Reddit that his laugh could be intended as a reference to Talking Heads' Psycho Killer, which is a pretty spot on observation even if it is a coincidence. If I was editing the English version I'd drop the w from Stephen's interpretation of the sound and make sure the reference stays. Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-far!

    And in line with the uptick of action in the capitol, the final pages finally move the prison plot thread into its final countdown. Kid and Killer's lifespans are now limited to their lung capacities (which are probably massive because this is One Piece, but they'll definitely still drown eventually) and Big Mom is at the gates. Having her create the big sound effect that goes with Luffy's final line the way Oda's beloved Doom!!s normally would is a fun touch. (speaking of sound effects though, anyone else noticed the scenes in the prison have reverted back to doom instead of beng? Is it just because it's mostly non-Wanonian characters in those bits?

    I'm eagerly looking forward to next week. I believe it's confirmed we're getting a colour spread, and I'm putting my bet in that it'll be the clean version of Oda's Stampede poster which was revealed last night.

    Kyoshiro is very interesting. I still don't know if his motive is duty (way of Bushido and Samurai) or is he plotting against him and is waiting for the right moment. Whenever he speaks, something feels off. Lucci is biddable to the WG because he feels it's necessary, which is similar to Akainu. I wonder if both of their early experiences will be fleshed out more.

    So next chapter Kyoshiro will push Zoro back, right ?

    Zoro is wounded, Kyoshiro looks to be final 1 vs 1 for Zoro this arc being shown to be possibly strongest Samurai among enemies of Strawhats. So with Zoro still being hurt he cannot fight to best of his ability..

    Sanji on other hand might still use his Germa 66 suit and get a draw against Drake, I hope for that at least, so we might be anticipating final fight of this arc for Sanji to be against Drake and he might end up fighting someone stronger.

    I still resent the fact we were totally kept blind of what happened between Sanji and Page One. Not even an off remark by someone! Such a cheap way of hiding things.
