It’s Nami’s turn to stand in the spotlight last chapter when she alone decided it was their obligation to save a bunch of crying children from their abductors. I guess Nami is the only one with a conscience among their group; though I’m sure Luffy would have helped those children as well. Will Smoker bring a stop to the Straw Hat pirates’ vacation, or is he the one who will need to be saved?
Smoker is starting to suspect something about this crazy island. He is getting the feeling that this island just might be occupied, and that the occupants do not want him or his crew to know. After fighting off deadly gas and fake ice bergs they come upon a door, a door hiding the current owner of this island, the Shichibukai Trafalgar Law! Once again you guys called it, he was rumored to be heartless, but now it is proven. He actually sent the hearts of 100 pirates to the government in order to become a Shichibukai, this guy is intense!
On the Straw Hats side, Luffy and the gang decided to ditch the hot side, and head on over to the frozen side. To do this Usopp builds them a banana boat using his seed powers; he thought of everything, hasn’t he? As they are halfway across this river they see in the distance the “boss” centaur, who has confused Zoro for the samurai who attacked them. This means that there is a chance that these centaurs just might be good guys after all.
I was kinda hoping for Doflamingo, but I’m sure his turn will be soon. I suspect he will play an important role in the future. Oda hardly ever forgets characters he introduces, so we haven’t seen the last of him yet.
THE VERDICT 4/5
It was a nice surprise seeing Law standing there. I wasn’t expecting to see this mysterious Shichibukai yet, but happy I did. I’m sure Smoker and Law will not settle their differences with talking, and sure they will come to fisticuffs next chapter.
