Last chapter we saw the outcome of what would happen if Sanji mind possessed Nami’s body, and it was glorious. Also Smoker’s and Tashigi got their minds switched, and we finally learned a little more about this arc’s major villain, Ceasar Clown. Let’s see just what happens this chapter.
Not much happened in this chapter to the characters, yet a lot of information was dumped on us about the history of this island, and other important information. Basically Vegapunk was using this island for his experimentation, but something happened and it exploded, sending poison gas all around, leaving all the pirate test subjects cripples. Ceasar Clown comes around and fixes everything up using his gas gas fruit, and helps return the pirates back to help by replacing their legs with crazy floating hoverounds. Soon Law shows up and replaces those hoverounds with animal legs, and everyone is a winner.
Thats basically it, we learn more about “the worst generation”, that basically every bad incident for the last two years were caused by the Supernovas. But in the end we are given one final piece of info, that Ceasar was the one who set off the bomb on the island, and has issued the death of the Straw Hats and everyone else who managed to land on this island.
A lot of this information we have already learned before, or figured it out on our own, but it’s nice to finally get some real explanation. I also don’t really like the little masks the Straw Hats have to wear in order for us and them to not get confused. Though I understand why they do it, this is a kids manga after all, so it might get confusing for those young ones, and for those who might pick up the manga every now and then.
THE VERDICT 3/5
This chapter was saved by the appearance of Ceasar Clown near the end of it; he’s a creepy looking guy, I’m loving it. So I’m not sure how Law’s personality switch works, but Law has Smoker’s heart, so he will have to get it back in order for them to return back to normal. But before that I feel that Ceasar will send his men after the Straw Hats. This is going to be a very interesting fight seeing as this enemy fights with poison gas. I wonder if Don Krieg got his gas from this facility?
