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