Yeah this chapter has gotten some weird hate. What were people expecting when they landed? If the person waiting for them on the shore was Jinbei or Sanji Oda would have ended with that reveal last week, instead we got the most obvious fake-out ever and yet people fell for it. We have this arc based on wonderland and other bizarre sources of inspiration and people complain that the chapter had too many weird and mysterious things in it. Happens every arc. The strawhats land, weird crap happens, and we get eventually an explanation.
There's nothing wrong with this chapter. It's the proper introduction to Whole Cake and I bet many of the next chapters will be about explaining the island itself and the people on it before we get into the nitty gritty with Germa 66 and Big Mom.

To right the countless wrongs of our day, we shine this light of true redemption, that this place may become as paradise. What a wonderful world such would be...
