@taichokage: Yeah you're right about that... Sanji needs more face time man! I think he's gonna get it next arc though in Zou. Which other than being a meeting place between Law and his crew and where Kinemon wanted to go is still quite a mystery. But I'm guessing it's going to just be an in between island like Punk Hazard was.
@luthluth: @taichokage: I F'ING KNEW ODA WOULD DO THIS, START THE FIGHT THEN TOTALLY LEAVE US ON A BREAK DX he's the biggest troll sometimes, I swear...
Anyway, good chapter. Nice to see a bit of how Zoro was trained by Mihawk, even if it's only a tidbit :P I'm so excited for the next chapter. Seeing as I know Oda, I doubt he's going to kill Law yet. Even if Law is on the edge of death, I think Mansherry can bring him back so that he's perfectly fine. I just want to see exactly HOW Luffy plans to beat him. Seriously, we NEED to see gear 4th.
@luthluth: @taichokage: @othus12 Man I have to applaud both Law and Doffy this week. Law on one hand where he had a REALLY good plan, and executed it well. To be honest I hadn't thought of the body double possibility. And that attack? Friggin amazing. He can use RADIATION ATTACKS?!?
Now for Doffy. Come on, not just anyone can tank an attack like that. I can't believe he took a radiation stab to the stomach and is still alive. Granted, his strings are repairing him (his ability is REALLY versatile) but still, it takes a LOT to still stand up and kick ass after that one.
And now begins the real fight between Luffy and Doffy. The Hype!
@taichokage: I'm actually a little disappointed that Don might only lose if weakened like this, but I suppose it makes sense. He's on level with any admiral and while Luffy is strong, he's still climbing toward that spot. Still, I think there's enough time for Luffy to pull out the big guns and finally show us some new powers! I just don't see this fight ending with just an Elephant Gatling or Thor Pistol.
Also lol oh yeah I forgot Sunny can do that. They both seem to steal a bit of material from each other everynow and then. I could see Oda and Shima sitting at a table arguing about certain points then coming to an agreement about what they could take from the other :P
@Jinbeifan1: They are buddies in real life which is probably the reason why a noob series at the time could collab with One Piece over smashing successes like Naruto or Bleach, albeit Toriko fits with OP better to begin with. I also understand your disappointment, but I tend to like it when Antagonists are shown their due respect. Even Plotkai Ichigo couldn't beat Aizen alone. He needed Urahara's Kidou. Don seems like he is one of Oda's favorite arc antagonists if not THE favorite so far. An arc this long is unusual in One Piece. It's hard to believe it's been over 2 years already. I wonder what will become of Law. I am still not against him joining despite his OPness. Jinbei either for that matter. I wish Oda would stop teasing. He confirmed that more Strawhats would be coming, but it's been how many years since Brook? Like 7 or something. He had already joined in the anime let alone the manga when I caught up around 5 years ago.
XD yeah they must get along real well. He's already done over four anime crossovers, one which was with DBZ, and a manga crossover as well. That has to tell you something if he was so easily willing to do it with Toriko even though we haven't seen a single crossover with any others in the HST. Naruto did get one dedication cover which was nice but other than that... XD
And yeah, I get what you're saying. He may or may not be Oda's favorite villain thus far, but I do know that he's MY favorite villain so far in the series. He's just so evil, it's awesome! XD As for letting Law join the crew, I'd still say I'd be honestly surprised if he did, more so than Jinbei. Who needs to hurry up and REJOIN THE STRAWHATS ALREADY! Darn Oda with his cover story and showing why he's been delayed XD And wow, I can't believe it's actually been that long since Brook joined. It makes you realize how long this series is really going to be. I remember I started getting back into One Piece around the Sabondy arc, where I realized I needed to catch up and binge watched it for who knows how long lol.
@Jinbeifan1@taichokage: : BOY O BOY What an asspull from Doffy! Fuck this guy, cant wait till Luffy murders hes ass. This chapter was epic 10/10, Law is really becoming my favorite character.
Lol yeah Doffy does refuse to let himself die, no doubt about it. But Luffy's gonna give him that much needed whooping that's for sure. Law is pretty awesome, but Doffy cannot be competed with as far as villains go. Unless he pulls an Aizen, gets a huge bullshit power up and then Luffy does the same. But seeing as how Oda doesn't write bullshit like that, I highly doubt it XD
