One Piece ワンピース [Amazon Lily Arc] : Shichibukai Boa “Snake Princess” Hancock vs Captain “Straw Hat” Luffy

“Man, tell me…how did you get onto this island? What do you want here? I’m not a fool to believe in such a ridiculous tale. I know you’re up to no good, you’re after something. You’ll never leave here alive, your fate is already sealed! Amazon Lily is a nation of woman warriors. Here, strength is beauty. Fight to the best of your ability and die an honorable death!”

Boa Hancock is among the few characters in One Piece that I consider has no power cap. The only ones thus far who were willingly able to resist her Mero Mero no Mi were Luffy and Vice Admiral Momonga (barely), the rest crumbled to dust. That is what I consider a broken Paramecia. She practically came out of the “Summit War” Saga unscathed! My favorite techniques are Pistol Kiss & Slave Arrow and even tho she doesn’t really use Salome for combat, I like that it’s huge af. Amazon Lily was an interesting arc, got to see Oda explore the female figure other than the typical type 01 he always uses, and the Gorgon Sisters ties to Fisher Tiger was an interesting backstory. Also, any arc where Luffy uses Haoshoku Haki will always leave an impression! 


“I’ve  found a certain girl. She’s from the Cintra nobility, a war orphan. She’s been through refugee camps, and is currently measuring cloth in ells and cutting it out, having been taken in by a Brugge draper. There is nothing remarkable about her, aside from one thing. She is quite similar in likeness to a certain miniature of the Lion Cub of Cintra … Fancy a look?”

“No, Codringher. No, I don’t. And I can’t permit a solution like this.”

“Geralt”, said the lawyer, closing his eyes. “What drives you? If you want to save Ciri… A time of contempt is approaching. You have to adapt. Someone will die, so someone else can live. Someone you love will survive. A girl you don’t know, and whom you’ve never seen, will die-”

“No. Leave the girl in peace; may she continue to measue cloth. Destroy her portrait. Burn it.”

Peri Caesar

Peridot gets transported back in time, only to find herself in the Roman Empire. She quickly makes a name for herself, navigating Roman politics and rising through the military ranks. She finally becomes Empress, only to have Steven travel back in time and warn her she is changing history with disastrous effects on the present. Will Peridot, or Peri Caesar as she’s now called, be able to rein in her lust for power before history changes forever?
