Hello Anime Vice readers, I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! Shonen Jump is odd around this time and will get released at weird intervals. I don’t know if there will another one in addition to this weeks batch, but let’s us enjoy what we got. Last chapter it looks like there is big trouble in Big Mom, or there is going to be. Will she be the next arc’s major villain?
Yes, dear god yes it looks like Big Mom will be one of the biggest villains during this next arc. This chapter made me very happy, I love it when Luffy runs his mouth off, it reminds me of myself. Basically, Big Mom loves her candy, she eats it by the ton. She “protects” islands that make her candy. If they stop, she destroys them. So because Fishman island can no longer produce the candy she needs to survive, I suppose it will be there turn to die. However, Luffy just so happens to be walking by when he learns about this chain of events.
Now Luffy is aggressive by nature, but I never really expected him to be this aggressive, especially to one of the Four Emperors. Luffy picks up the phone, and tells Big Mom right off the bat that he ate all the candy, and to shove it up her fat ass. Luffy just saved this Island, and doesn’t want her wrath to go toward this newly saved land, so he tries to funnel it against himself. It works, and now Big Mom wants luffy dead and doesn’t care what so ever about Fishman Island. But before Luffy hangs up, he tells her that Fishman Island is now his territory! I will name my first son after you for that one Luffy.
I have a feeling that this might mirror the Crocodile arc that took forever to tell its tale, over many different islands. I don’t think Luffy will land on Cake Island next and take her out just yet. Her crew seems to have a French theme to them, which looks pretty cool. I’m calling it now, she will try to eat Luffy, but won’t be able to because he’s just gum to her.
Oh, and the Straw Hats are basically millionaires right now.
I kind of wish Caribou would have put up a bigger fight, he had a pretty cool power after all.
THE VERDICT 4/5
Great chapter. I’m still buzzing from Luffy’s words. I love epic speeches in anime, Luffy’s are short and sweet, and get the job done perfectly. I can’t wait to see what Big Mom’s reaction to all of this is, and how Fishman Island reacts to this new change in management. To start this war off right the Straw Hats better send Big Mom the heads of those two clowns, though I doubt the Straw Hats will ever be that brutal.
