Happy New Years… I guess? I knew that I abandoned this blog for some time, but I had no idea that it was left as it is for this long. I feel really ashamed. (>_<)
Nevertheless I'll get right to it and will be caught up eventually.
Chapter 734: Rommel’s Kamaitachi
Hopefully Oda will touch upon Cavendish’s second identity as Hakuba in the future. This ability is quite interesting because it reminds me of Märchen as both the concept and the Sound Horizon album. It would be a shame if a brief glimpse is all we have but knowing Oda, it most likely will be brought up again.
I don’t get Doffy’s yandere attitude towards Law. A while ago he wanted to kill him, but now he has Law seated
comfortably on the Heart Street. I don’t understand. :/
I expect there to be several R18 doujinshi with the prompt of “Law being tied up to a chair”.
Chapter 735: Fujitora’s Intention
It’s adorable how Bart has begun to admire Sabo just as how his fanboy tendencies goes beyond Luffy and reaches Ace and Zoro.
Not only was Doffy being portrayed as a caring guy, Senor Pink is shown to be like this too. What is Oda trying to convey with the characterization of the Donquixote Pirates? It would be simple if they were all bastards who gave no shits about others, but their caring side makes the crew unlike all the other villains whom the Strawhats have faced. I don’t think any group are as close knit as the Donquixote Pirates are to the point where they consider themselves “family”.
The elimination of the Shichibukai has valid pros and cons so I’m on the fence about this issue. On the one hand there’s no point to keeping dangerous pirates at bay if they are given too much freedom; on the other hand the World Government needs to have an outreach on the “other side” if they ever wish to solve the pirate problem. It goes both ways, and Fujitora better have a good alternative to the Shichibukai.
Chapter 736: Elite Officer Diamante
The Colosseum seems to be a three way battle: Diamante Army vs. Jesus Burgess (Blackbeard Pirates) vs. Lucysabo/Bart/Rebecca.
Sabo seems to have gotten a scar from the Tenryuubito incident. It’s nice how he seemed to have stayed true to his pole arm wielding roots whereas his brothers ended up consuming Devil Fruits; however, he would be a force to reckon with if he used his weapon alongside the Mera Mera no Mi.)
Another Donquixote Pirate member is painted in a good light once again: this time it’s Diamante who is apparently a fair sportsman. He reminds me of Buffalo who was stated as someone who opposed cheating back at the casino. The ONE PIECE Wiki is tracking the quirks of the Donquixote Pirates, but they should also begin to track examples of their “nice” characteristics as well.
