AV MOD MATERIAL: ONE PIECE Ch. 702 Review

Will the adventure formula of ONE PIECE really turn into a tournament for the Dressrosa Arc?

And he knows how to use them.
And he knows how to use them.

The SMILE Factory hunting team has already been split up, and Doflamingo has a tournament with the most grand of prizes.

The Good

No one seems to be surprised by the possible answer.
No one seems to be surprised by the possible answer.

It sure didn't take long for the team dedicated to finding the SMILE factory to get distracted. Zoro's Shusuihas been taken by a mystery fairy. Zoro and Kin'emon chase after the thief, and Sanji wisely followed after. Though, Zoro always finds a way to show up in some of the best places when wondering by himself.Franky tries to keep the mission on the rails, but it's still in question if Luffy will stay on target now that he's discovered the prize Doflamingo is offering in his tournament. Ace's Flame-Flame fruit.

I think the audiences thoughts that the mysterious blind-swordsman is Admiral Fujitora is sound. In this chapter, he offers the bill for damages be sent to an unknown location. It's obviously some organization that is reputable enough to send a bill to. Pirates are out of the question. The best options would be theMarines.

The Bad

I'm a bit unsure about the Dressrosa Arc taking a turn for a cliche action-shonen tournament. Those arcs appear in most of the big name series, but they tend to drag on. How will that fit in the ONE PIECE formula? I guess I shouldn't judge too early. Oda has a way of putting a twist on things.

Verdict 3/5

This week was a fun chapter that puts an interesting twist on events by putting a powerful logai fruit on the line. What's the fun in reading a story where everything goes the way the heroes plan? You want a bit of chaos thrown in to see how they deal with the change, and this whole team was a set up for chaos from the beginning.

I really hope that it don't turn into a tournament arc (hope it just a free for all fight)

Why do a toy robot need a coat for?

Wonder how the fairy going to look like and why they taking the stuff

I surprise Franky take control, he usually the first one to wonder off somewhere

I like the chapter

i'm sure luffy will participate in the tournament but come on it obviously wont take that long for himto get found out. i think he will put a twist on the whole tournament thing just like u implied.

Whenever we think something will be simple in one piece oda throws a curve. and that is why we love one piece!!

i think fujitora is the new shichibukai, and that this new blind swordsman is him, sent by the marines to watch Doflamingo after his resignation from the warlords

What's funny is that I didnt notice it till the next chapter, but Luffy looked ALOT like Roshi XD
