What have you done Law? You used to be such a nice guy, but now you are going around attacking marines and enslaving children. Where did you go wrong? But all is not lost, our good ol’ buddy Smoker is here to prove that smoking two cigars at once can be good for your health. Let’s see how this all transpires.
I was expecting a savage Law vs. Smoker fight this chapter that never came, so I truly am a sad panda. However, life is not only about Law vs. Smoker fights, but other great things like Zoro being eaten by sharks, and pirate centaurs! First thing to point out is that the centaur named “Boss” is actually the pirate Brownbeard, from before the time skip. I guess he survived Hawkins and somehow became Law’s slave.
The Straw Hats always have a real hard time finding winter clothing when they need it the most; especially Zoro. Their boat capsizes and they are left swimming in the water for something like five minutes, and then they will have to fight for their clothing. Seriously, any normal man would be dead by then, so my straw hat goes off to the Straw Hats. Not only that, but Zoro killed three sharks in that state as well! If it were only legal to marry a manga character.
Law’s fight is really heating up, and it’s not looking good for either the Straw Hats or the marines. Before the Straw Hats can escape with the kids, Law preforms his “shambles” attack on them. It is unknown what exactly he did, but from the looks of it he removed their hearts and placed them in random bodies. At first I thought this was stupid, seeing as this has been done before with other manga (ala Captain Ginyu). However, it would be cool if, for example, Franky found powers inside Chopper that he never saw himself.
If Law could just remove the hearts of the Straw Hats, couldn’t he then just remove their hearts and call it a day? Unless Law is still friends with them, or doesn’t like to kill.
THE VERDICT 3/5
With the marines being owned like crazy by Law, Smoker will have to really step it up in order to save his men and Tashigi. Law has a lot of explaining to do, and I hope he is doing all this for a good reason. I’m starting to see why they now call the pirates that started the same time as Luffy the “worst generation”.
