    The only real problem I have with Big Mom is her crew.

    It's hard to get hyped when there's so many, and most haven't really done much at all. Remember how Bobbin was one of the first members to be introduced and he amounted to nothing? And when is Smoothie is going to do anything? Seriously, we don't even know the name of her Fruit, but we know Cracker's and Katakuri's.

    But I guess it's fair since this won't be Big Mom's defeat. ...I hope.

Blackbeard has the strongest Paramecia and Logia fruits and destroyed the Revolutionary Army's base in Baltigo. Shanks well... everyone got scared once he appeared in Marineford with his crew and Whitebeard never took him lightly either. Compared to them, Big Mom looks like a farce in my eyes.
    How, exactly? One Piece at its core is ridiculous.

    Not everything has to be utterly ridiculous though. CP9 weren't neither any other character during Marineford besides the Buggy gang. Big Mom throughout the arc has been doing silly things like dancing and singing with things that she gave parts of her sould like flowers, trees etc and killing flies while she sleeps. Also, she has done nothing thus far to prove she is the terrifying Yonko that she is supposed to be compared to Kaido and Blackbeard and the fact that she mostly gets scary due to her berserk state doesn't help either.

    Big Mom acting like a whacky fairy tale character is kinda the point though, that's her schtick, that's this arc's schtick. She's introduced properly with a musical number lol

    I don't get this. What is she supposed to do? She's proven herself to be practically invincible unless under extremely specific circumstances. The only thing I see that's different between her and the other Yonko is that Big Mom controls a kingdom she created, where the people are completely aware of what she is doing and live their voluntarily. Big Mom isn't on some conquest of a kingdom like Kaido nor is she actively attacking others like Blackbeard to gain ground because she isn't new to the pirate world.

    I find it impressive how Katakuri stalemated Luffy's Red Hawk with a regular Armament Haki-imbued punch.

    I am not buying into Pedro's death here. But even if he did, I will not rule out the possibility that this could actually be Pedro's last moment since it keeps hinting towards he's at the end of his life. Granted his death will serve as potential character development for Carrot. But gosh, Remember Pell? Albeit, Pedro has had more build-up towards his death than Pell. This is also the second giant explosion in the climax of this arc.

    after the last chapter, i feel like perospero should have been a sweet commander instead of smoothie (granted, we haven't really seen much of smoothie so it might be too early to judge).

    Smoothie has disappointed me thus far but till Big Mom Pirates cease to exist I will keep hoping that she will be more relevant and scary opponent.

    So Luffy dragged Katakuri into the mirror world for a genuine 1v1. This is going to be good. Though likely a bit asspully given how the Cracker fight went.

    Well, it seems that Pedro is truly dead but I'm not convinced yet. Luffy vs Katakuri in the mirror world. I wonder how this fight will go and how Luffy will return to Thousand Sunny.

    They weren't going to kill off a major hitter like Peros that way, what happens to Pedro is fair game, but Perospero can't go out like that. At least he lost an arm right?

    Is this Carrot thing actually happening? I think this Carrot thing is actually happening.. Pedro being alive basically kills the first quarter of this chapter really. Pell 2.0 I pray not.

    Does seawater conduct electricity? Carrot could end all this possibly......

    Pedro taking what Roger said to him then passing it to Carrot is definite foreshadowing, especially since it was juxtaposed to Carrot instantly failing to attack Dogtooth. Oda definitely has something planed for Carrot in the future.

    So I guess now we know why Carrot had a green cape like the Guardians despite being a Musketeer. Probably Pedro's influence.

    Yes, very, very well since it's an ionic fluid.
    Hey, the new subs I found do use Snowball. I win.

    I enjoy writing.

    Staying off Serebii on 9/21 until I can watch the episode personally.
