“The reason the Grand Line is called the ‘Pirates’ Graveyard’, is because of the Three Great Powers that rule over it. One of them, is the Ōka Shichibukai. They’re seven Pirate Warlords that are officially authorized by the World Government. The Shichibukai inhabit wild regions of the seas and as long as they give a cut of their loot obtained from marauding & pillaging, the World Government sanctions their actions. Other pirates may look down on them and call them ‘Government Dogs’, but they’re among the strongest the Grand Line has to offer!!”
Thus ends my journey with the Shichibukai. It was fun & arduous while it lasted and I had a hell of a great time re-reading some of the most epic and sad moments in One Piece. I’ve compiled all the gifs into a short video in the order of the manga’s storyline, so enjoy this final treat me buckos! Oda has given us so many fantastic characters & memories it’s hard to wait a week for each chapter but it is always worth the wait. I can’t wait to see what else the sensei has in store for us!!
One Pieceワンピース [Yonkō Saga / Totto Land Arc] : Yonkō Charlotte “Big Mom” Linlin vs “Soul King” Brook
“WHY DO YOU STAND AGAIN…SOUL KING?!”
Welp. I need new underwear. What a chapter. Never would I have guessed Charlotte’s full power would be revealed so soon in the game, and against Brook no less!! Don’t get me wrong Brook is a great Strawhat but I think we can all agree he fell off the radar post-time skip. His swordsmanship was unique but paled in comparison to Zoro’s and the whole diva bit felt kinda forced. BUT DAMN, ODA IS NOT MESSING AROUND THIS ARC. Complete counter to a Yonkō I mean talk about blindsiding the entire fandom. This arc just keeps getting better and better. I’m still hoping Caesar Clown is the trigger to the next big war between Kaidō & Big Mom with the W.G. & Germa 66 backing either side. Soul King!
