Summary

Noooo!! Why You Evil!?
Noooo!! Why You Evil!?

In the passage way that connects block A and block B , Team Zoro (Nami, Robin, Sanji, Usopp, Brook and Kinemon) are riding on Brownbeard's back, because they basically are lazy. Behind them, Tashigi and her remaining men are attack by the PH Dragon. The G-5 Marines open fire at the PH Dragon, but it easily dodge the gunfire and try to take a bite out of them. As the PH Dragon chase the marines, it sense danger and quickly run away.

Vergo: I've Been Wanting To Do This For Ages!
Vergo: I've Been Wanting To Do This For Ages!

Then the G-5 Marines are cheering of the arrival of Vice Admiral Vergo, believing he has come to save them, but are shocked when Vergo uses Finger Gun on the three closest G-5 Marine to him. Tashigi lunges at him, but Vergo defends against her by hardening his arm, then knocks her down. The G-5 Marines attack him, believing that he is a fake, but are effortlessly defeated.

Sanji then arrives using Air Walk and Diable Jambe to kicks Vergo in the face, knocking the spoon out of him. Back with the rest of team Zoro, the PH Dragon have caught up with them and is about to attack them Luffy is out of breath at the outside of CC's lab, Smoker then come up asking Luffy is he ok. Luffy tells Smoker that he ok and need to catch his breath. When Smoker open CC's lab door, Luffy immediately punches CC in the gut.

The Good

I Have Mix Feelings About This
I Have Mix Feelings About This

+ The PH Dragon attacking the G-5 Marines

+ Vergo beating up the G-5 Marines

+ Sanji's awesome kick to Vergo's face

+ Luffy's trail of fire

+ Monet :)

+ Luffy punch CC in the gut

The Bad

- The PH Dragon turning evil

- Tashigi being beaten and save again

- Zoro didn't save Tashigi

- The PH Dragon attacking team Zoro (they going to eat that poor Dragon)

- No Law, Franky or Chopper

My Quick Thoughts

Man, I so sad about the PH Dragon being evil and attacking team Zoro. It just going to be eaten by Zoro in the end. All well, there always Monet who can still join the crew after this Arc. Also what happen to Law?

Overall

I'll give this chapter 3.5 out of 5, it was a very good chapter (next chapter is fighting time)

Summary

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.

So Cute

Back on Punk Hazard island, Law begins his counterattack, by asking if anyone can burn a nearby ship to create a smokescreen, as Franky gladly do. Then he reveals that he had swapped his Sea Prism chains with normal ones, allowing him to easily break free. He then switch Smoker and Tashigi back into their original bodies, in return for forgetting Joker's identity and Law involvement on the island. Outside, team Zoro continue to flee from the poison cloud. Sanji (in Nami's body) catch up to the dragon, while Usopp and Nami (in Sanji's body) ride on Brownbeard.

Punk Hazard Island Arc

ONE PIECE Ch. 673 - Vergo and Joker

As Caesar Clown goes to retrieve the children ha had been experimenting on. An incredibly truth is revealed about the mysterious Vergo. Luffy and his gang may have been locked in a cage with Smoker and Tashigi, but the lighthearted hero sure doesn't seem to let that get him down.

The Good

If it wasn't a big enough shock to find out that mysterious Vergo introduced two chapters ago is a Vice Admiral for the Marines. He's actually a pirate who infiltrated their ranks as a spy 15 years ago. All as part of the will of his captain, Donquixote Doflamingo. Color me intrigued.

I should probably slap myself for not realizing who this "Joker" actually is. The name has been tossed around quite a bit recently. It was a nice feint in story telling. Code names aren't common in ONE PIECE. Joker is in actuality Donquixote Doflamingo, a member of the Shichibukai. Now that I look at how Doflamingo always has that creepy grin and controls his own men and government officials through fear of his powers. I wouldn't be surprised if he was partially based around the Clown Prince of Crime. Oda's based characters on Michael Jackson and ROCK HORROR cast. I wouldn't put it past him.

I was sensing some deja vu with the whole scene of Luffy locked in a cage with Smoker. It's funny that Robin is the one who points it out. Seeing how last time something similar to this happened, Robin was on the outside looking in. It's a nice touch of Oda to add. Anyone who's followed this series would make the same comparison. It also highlights the kind of protagonist Luffy is, as well. All this deep drama going on around him. A big new villain revealed, trapped with enemies, wrapped in chains that takes away his powers, and no apparent path of escape. And Luffy has a big grin, and he's laughing at the irony of his situation. Poor, self-serious Law trapped in the middle. Add that to the list why ONE PIECE is always a fun read.

The Bad

The early pages do serve a purpose, but feels a bit off place. It just seems to hammer home that to most of the world Vergo is a trustful and loyal man to the Marines. All this to hide his part in a grand conspiracy. It's just the introduction of such a random character as Yarisugi in the middle of it was overkill - pun intended**

It's also a little frustrating that we still aren't even clear on why Luffy suddenly passed out while fighting Caesar a few chapters back. The conventional wisdom is that the gas got to him, but I'm not so sure.

Verdict 4/5

The plot is thickening to an almost head spinning degree. No one can claim that Oda is slowing down or going in circles. Here I was ready for just another fun adventure on a strange island of fire and ice, but it's turning into a deep and meaningful plot with some incredible twists. One that's using some of my favorite characters in amazing ways. I just home we get a bit more action soon.

**See character Yarisugi character page for explanation of that joke.

Summary

No Flashback For You!
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)

I'll give this chapter a 3 out of 5, 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!

The Straw Hats finally break into the New World, and Naruto makes nine powerful friends in this month's releases.

Today is the Japanese release date for two of the big Shonen Three volumes from Shueisha. Though, by this time it was yesterday for them. Ah, the thirteen hour time difference.

Included in the release is ONE PIECE Vol. 66, which contains Chapter 647-656. This concludes the Fish-Man Island Arc, the first arc of the post-time skip era; and begins the latest Punk Hazard Island Arc. It's been great having Smoker and Tashigi back in the story. NARUTO Vol. 60 was also released, which contains Chapter 566-575. This continues to Shinobi World Arc arc, but Naruto has made a groundbreaking change in his relationship with the Nine-Tailed Fox and learns his true name. BLEACH Vol. 55 won't be released in Japan until June 4, 2012.

With VIZ Media's initiative of increasing the publication of these two series, buying these translated in the U.S. shouldn't be that far off. With all the issues I have with some of their publishing and editting practices, I have to applaud them for this.
