One Piece 678 - "Inside The Laboratory's A-Building Lobby"

This week cover page is a cover story, it about Jimbei taking Caribou away from Fishman Island. I seeing a buddy comedy in the future for them :)

Summary

LOL!
LOL!

Team Zoro and Team Nami (in Sanji's body) have just bust down the shutter door, the G-5 Marines are in a panic at the sight of the poison cloud nearing the open hole, they quickly board it up. Then Brook projects his soul outside the laboratory, and sees that the surrounding landscape has been completely covered by the ash shell produced by the cloud. And then the G-5 Marines turned there guns to Zoro and the others, but Law tell Smoker to control his men, as he do so.

Law switches Sanji and Nami back into their original bodies at her request. Then he informs everyone that there is only one escape route that can avoid the gas, a huge door marked with "Building R-66" on it and they have two hours to finish what they there for and get to the door or they will die. Team Zoro combine with Team Nami to search for the children, Smoker prepares to fight his boss Vergo, and Tashigi and the G-5 Marines search for the escape route. Team Luffy goes after CC, and is warned by Zoro to take him seriously this time. Luffy is attacked by a squadron of centaurs, but takes out all of them at once with his new attack Gum Gum UFO.

The Good

+ Zoro and Kinemon looking cool after cutting down the door

Huh, Luffy can now hover
Huh, Luffy can now hover

+ Seeing the outside of Punk Hazard after the Land Of The Dead covering it (also seeing Brook's soul again)

+ The cute PH Dragon (do hope it join the crew)

+ Brownbeard saying you know my name LOL!

+ Zoro telling Luffy to get serious, since they in the New World

+ Luffy using his new attack Gum Gum UFO (it look so cool)

The Bad

- Where Franky and Chopper?

- Sanji getting hit by Nami (at this rate, he'll be the new Yamcha)

- No Monet :(

My Quick Thoughts

I do wonder where is Franky is, knowing him he probably getting a new pair of speedo, after his Fire Ball attack LOL! Also I do like how Luffy make up attacks on the fly, hope he got some more

Overall

I'll give this chapter a 3 out of 5, it was a good chapter (it basically set up)

COOL

Zoro's Team are running for their lives from the poison cloud, then Zoro spots the PH Dragon and plan on riding it with the others. At the lab, CC taunts Luffy that his crew as well as everyone outside the safety of the lab will never survive the gas. He goes on saying that once the gas kills Luffy, Smoker (in Tashigi's body) & Law it will prove that his gas is unstoppable being able to kill high profile targets. Then the cage begin to move outside of the lab. While, Chopper is wondering what to do. Law tells Luffy that they will continue with the original plan and prepare to fight back.

In the research facility, Law is confronted by the mysterious man, Velgo. Law then attempts to fight him, but is instantly knock back down and then is knock out by a steel bamboo stick. Outside, CC has KO Franky, Robin, Smoker & Tashigi without even touching any of them. The G-5 Marines wonder if it is Conqueror's Haki. At the lake, Brook & Zoro are arguing how to deal with the Slime, while Sanji in Nami's body saves the samurai's torso from being eaten by a shark and being poison to death, by escaping using Blue Walk. The reconstructed samurai introduces himself as Kinemon of Foxfire, and easily destroys the Slime around them with his Foxfire attack.

- Wondering how CC know of Law have betray him

My Quick Thoughts

Huh, I wondering if Velgo eat an Alchemy Devil Fruit and also what is that thing on his face? It seems like CC make a Conqueror's Haki poison, but it probably not true

Overall

This was a ok chapter, it answers some questions. The next one probably would be awesome

I'll give this chapter a 3 out of 5, it was an ok chapter

1 is really bad, 2 is bad but have some good scenes, 3 is OK, 4 is good and 5 is Awesome!

Summary

Law & Monet Sitting In A Tree
Law & Monet Sitting In A Tree

The Slime continues to spit pieces of itself across the lake, poisoning the lake in the process. Brook recognize the blob from a dirty book he have red. Despite this, Sanji who is in Nami's body decide to dives in to the lake and searches for the samurai's torso, since he/she is the fastest swimmer of Zoro's group. At the lab, Law asks Monet to accompany him through the laboratory, saying he want to borrow her powers. CC slips out of Luffy's hold, and demonstrates the combat abilities of his Devil Fruit as the two fight each other. Although Luffy appears unharmed after all of CC's poisonous and explosive attacks, he spontaneously collapses and CC laughs in triumph. Shortly after, Law suddenly falls down injured in the laboratory, before being confronted by a mysterious figure he recognizes.

The Good

+Brook recognize the Slime from a dirty book

I Also Need Duck Tape
I Also Need Duck Tape

+The Samurai & Sanji who in Nami's body want to borrow the book

+The part with Monet & Law

+Franky suggesting to put CC into a barrel

The Bad

-I have to wait two weeks to see who is the mysterious person is

-Also Oda forgot to make Sanji in Nami's body coat disappear, when he/she take it off

My Thoughts

Man, this was an awesome chapter. It have great fighting and it move the story along. I got some theories of who is the mysterious person at the end of the chapter. It might be Joker, since Law was surprise seeing him there or its Kuzan (Aokiji) judging from his feet, and he might of stay on the island or it could be Vegapunk

Overall

This was an awesome chapter, it got me hype up for next chapter in two weeks

I'll give this chapter a 4.5 out of 5, it was an awesome chapter but having to wait two weeks drop the rating down

So what did you guys think of the chapter?

1 is really bad, 2 is bad but have some good scenes, 3 is OK, 4 is good and 5 is Awesome!

No Flashback For You!

After arriving, Monkey D. Luffy is attacked by Tashigi who in Smoker's body and easily beat her/him. Then Smoker who in Tashigi's body attack Luffy (much to Luffy's amusement) but Luffy easily evades his/her attacks and says he will fight Smoker when he is back in his own body. Suddenly, everyone on the battlefield see a huge ball of slime landed on the ship that the G-5 Marines stole. After being ignited by a Marine's flamethrower, it exploded violently, destroying the ship and "killing" the Marines that was on the ship. Afterwards more huge slime balls began raining from the sky on all sides and the people watching were being overwhelmed by the toxic gas emitted from them. CC then reveals himself on top of the destroyed ship, explaining his pet's ability to transfer itself from the other side of the island. Zoro, Brook, and Sanji in Nami's body see Slime spitting pieces of itself across the distance. CC explains that once all the pieces are here, the whole area will turn into another poison gas incident. Luffy then manages to grab CC before he could do a flashback, much to his shock.

The Good

  • The short fight with Luffy, Tashigi & Smoker
  • Franky's laser (love the laser)
  • The Slime design
  • Luffy stopping Caesar Clown's flashback

The Bad

  • CC explaining the Slime

Overall

It was a OK chapter, nothing really awesome. (Just set up)

In what is my first report-like blog, I am reporting an update to the upcoming One Piece: Pirate Warriors game that launches in Japan this March for the Playstation 3. Not entirely sure if this will ever see a US release as of now, but at least we can hope. Information below taken from CrunchyRoll (all respective rights reserved).

"The latest info on One Piece: Pirate Warriors ("One Piece Kaizoku Musou") hit the Japanese interwebs on Famitsu today, so we have some new screenshots and details about the story mode.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors (PS3)
One Piece: Pirate Warriors (PS3)

Story mode is called "Main Log" and features narration by Mahito Ooba (who has also provided other One Piece game narration and played some TV anime roles). There are two types of stages, Adventure and Musou. Adventure stages task you with using Luffy's Gum-Gum Fruit powers to overcome various obstacles, while Musou stages are battle-centric."

One Piece: Pirate Warriors (PS3)
One Piece: Pirate Warriors (PS3)

As a fan of both One Piece and video games, there is a part of me that hopes that this promising One Piece game does eventually see a release in the United States. It would be a blast to play as various members of the Strawhat Pirates from their adventure and battle against the fearsome Arlong and crew (Arlong Park Arc) to what appears to be the end of the Enies Lobby ordeal (Enies Lobby Arc) in the fights against the powerful CP9.
