Firstly, this PERFECT comedic timing is everything! Yohoho~ Brook really is the real MVP of WCI arc because he gets the job done! Oda really has been showing his badassery levels in different forms. I’m. So. Elated.
Sanji gets reverted back to a child and finally gets the childhood he deserves. [2/?]
Zoro takes what he assumes is Sanji into the kitchen. He looks like what a 5 year old Sanji would look like but infinitely less irritating.
“Umm, where is this?”
“Your kitchen. I know it’s been a while since you’ve been in it dartbrow.”
“I have a name.”
Chopper speeds into the room and Zoro lets down Sanji back to the actual floor instead of dangling from his hands.
“Did you eat something weird again? What happened? Why are you so small? Did someone touch you with their devil fruit? Do you know where you are?”
Zoro can feel the tension building up in Sanji’s shoulders. He wasn’t there for the fight against Big Mom so he got an extra summarized version of Sanji’s past. He figured Sanji wasn’t always the person he met on that floating restaurant years ago.
“Slow down there Chopper.”
He stands a little taller when he speaks again, “How do you know my name? You called me Sanji when you ran in.”
Finally I find the time/mood to make another review! And couldn’t be a chapter for it.
My wifi hates me, so not many images today. Let’s start with the wonderful, glorious, cover - The first one, because we even have two. To all the people who said Luffy shouldn’t forgive Sanji, the rest of the crew is still angry with him… here’s your answer. The crew has many different characters and responses on all kinds of situations, but this doesn’t change: they have the utmost respect for their captain and will follow his judgement.
This is actually something that evolved after the timeskip: Luffy is now clearly more mature. The death of Ace had him forcefully realize that adventure and friendship is all good and so on, but at some point you must stop and think. Luffy before timeskip was about to tell Usopp to leave the crew and lose Zoro’s respect. Luffy, now, asks questions - to Sanji - and listens to answers - that he thankfully understands as lies.
As for the second one… well.
You lost because you didn’t win
English-speaking people must have a difficult time realizing how it feels to learn a bit of English in middle school and starting to write random cool phrases that mean eveything but als kinda notjing worth saying like “I love you” or “Be yourself xoxo” on each other’s diaries. It’s a teenage thing - or maybe not, since I still write poems on my walls -, it’s a phase, it passes. Apparently Oda- sensei isn’t out of it yet. And likes tautologies.
By the way I lpve this cover because it literally supports every ship possible with Nami: Sanami, Zonami, Lunami… but in particular SANAMI BECAUSE THE FRICKING NUMBER ON HER SHIRT IS A 73. Whatever. Leave me alone. Other than that, as per @sanjiafsincedayone‘s posts we know that 73 and 32 rapresents Sanji and Nami. So I guess the other numbers have some meaning as well.
I don’t really get the point of this page… to show that the wedding is approaching - as per the clock…? - nor the point of this new character. Oda generally gives everything a meaning, but sometimes he doesn’t… I think.
Pekoms is being held prisoner back by Jinbei’s crew not to let him spill a word of the plan to Big Mom - this dude is way too loyal, that witch doesn’t deserve him. I like seeing some strange races every now and then and I just looove Praline’s design, I’d let her step on me - something she couldn’t do, given the fact she has no legs lol - but every time I see her, I fricking wonder: HOW DID BIG MOM GIVE BIRTH TO A MERMAID. To be more specific: HOW DID SHE CONCEIVE HER
But One Piece is kids-friendly so I guess we’ll never know, uh…
Big Mom leaves her underlings quite a bit of freedom, letting Bege even have his own castle. Vito the evil fanboy - in contrast to Bartolomeo the good fanboy - meets them and tells them to have a bath. And Luffy’s the one staying focused on the most urgent matters, can you believe it??? But Sanji and Luffy look at each other and agree they do quite stink LOL
The boys get some fanservice and we get some hints and recap. For us hardcore fans of One Piece this is quite useless, but since all the friends I have that don’t read OP say it’s because it’s too long and there’s too much stuff to remember …I guess it makes sense. And with what Carrot says here, I’m more and more convinced she’ll join the crew - or at the very least be with them for a while longer.
Lola’s was asked in marriage by the the Giants’ prince, Loki - named after the Northern Mythology god of deceit Loki, but this is tumblr and Tom Hiddleston exists, I don’t really need to tell you right? -, here goes the double gag, cause
A. She was asked in marriage - because of her personality I guess, but jokes aside, she was really a good girl
B. They still understood Lola=/=Chiffon, I don’t know how.
And by the way for the Sanami shippers here, Nami is impressed at the mention of a prince
So my theory of Mama needing Ceasar’s help because of her hatred towards giants was partially correct. She wanted their army and now wants to get the Vinsmokes’. Also, she’s an abusive parent, but nothing new here.
Here’s just how big Sanji’s heart his. Personally, I would side with Chiffon, I don’t think she’s cruel or anything, many would side with her, and I can tell because so many thought not only Sanji would let his family die, but even kill them himself. And instead…
They beat him. Verbally and emotionally abused him. His own father tried to kill him, and now are using him… and even so…
Getting to the gag stuff - which, as always, I love - Brook did in fact have a fierce battle, Luffy! And yet again, how is the level-headed one… I’d never thought I’d put “Luffy” and “level-headed” in the same sentence ….
What the hell is up with your bodies!
We all ‘ve been wondering hon. W’all ‘ve been wondering.
Next up, the Mafia runaway! I love how they look, so 20′s … but why didn’t they give Sanji a suit as well? I know it’s what he wears all the time, but he’ll end up looking unelegant in comparison, and I cannot have that. Carrot’s so adorable with her hat, but Pedro just feels terribly uneasy, you can tell, and not because Ceasar’s sitting right next to him.
Ahhhh he’s wearing shorts! He couldn’t be that elegant I guess. Pity.
Is no-one going to say anything at Luffy wearing two hats? Okay…
And then the mess happens. Poor Jinbei. He’s astonished.
