It appears that our little romp in fish land is soon coming to a finish, or so I hope. Last chapter we all saw what we knew was coming, the Queen has been assassinated. For what reasons? We don’t really know, but perhaps this chapter will clue us in.
Within a few seconds of the shot, they have already found the shooter. And surprise surprise it is a human. Jinbe wants to hide this from everyone to help keep the Queen’s ideals alive, but it is Hodi Jones that tells everyone the truth, that the humans did it and that humans suck. The King is pissed, and has to be locked away before he rips something apart. He knows more than anyone that this has just put an end to everything the queen has been working for this entire time.
During her funeral her sons tell the world that her ideas will live on through them, and they will travel to the surface for “reverie”, the chance to tell the world of their dream. Thusly the story of this flashback has finished. Luffy of course is sleeping, and Sanji is still pissed, but Nami understands, and everyone gets along in the end.
We learn that Hodi has plans to stop this year’s group of fishmen from entering reverie, thusly stopping them from leaving the sea. Unlike Arlong, Hodi has no problem hurting fishmen in order to get what he wants. At the end of the chapter we see Hodi begin a broadcast about his plans for world domination, or something of that sort.
I really can’t complain about this chapter, it was just completely filled with so much information that I can’t think of anything else.
THE VERDICT 4/5
So here is my prediction, I think the human that shot the queen was actually planted there by Hodi, because Hodi was among the first people to find him. I guarantee this is all Hodi’s doing for sure. We have a break next week, but I’m sure the next time we will finally see the Straw Hats loose their cool and confess their intentions to beat the hell out of the Hodi gang.
