    Tsundere Zoro confirmed?


    Hopefully not a solo Luffy arc since I wanna see more of Brook and the others who haven't had much time to shine

    Seems like Luffy will leave Zou soon and I liked how Pekoms and Luffy interacted ha ha. That little monkey's gonna ruin things tho by blabbing about Kinemon and Kankuro.

    It seems like the only way the only way for Sanji to save himself from this marriage without hurting anyone is to end his family tie w/ the Vinsmokes, in that way he's no longer someone important.

    At least now, we'll get to know why the samurai gang is hunted badly.

    I don't get why people on OMF are so butthurt that this arc is somehow being "prolonged" by having the samurai show up. This twist was obvious and set up from the moment we saw them arrive at Zou - even moreso when Brook told the group to specifically not mention the samurai. And we need their part of the story told to be honest.

    Though I'm kind of sad that Oda used three of my favorite Strawhats and basically took a dump on them. Really? Brook I can see falling asleep, but for Robin it is OOC.

    Adding to this, I don't get why people are so bothered that the arc is seemingly ending now? Sure, action-wise not a lot has happened, but story-wise A LOT has happened. We've had the past/origins of several characters built upon, including Sanji's. This arc's been straight to the point, and that's been a much bigger breath of fresh air than the pace of Dressrosa.

    Dressrosa was a fantastic arc, but I think Oda was having WAY too much fun with it and dragged it out longer than it should have been. The Zou arc is obviously an interlude for the upcoming Sanji/Vinsmoke arc, which I have no problem with. It's refreshing to not have story elementts dragged out over as many chapters as possible for once.

    Zou ending soon doesn't bother me cuz if I'm being honest, the minks don't interest me much and I just want action involving Luffy vs the Yonkou. :3

    The problem with a mink fight is that it doesn't do anything for the story in the long run, all it's doing is adding more conflict to the already clusterf*** of a a set-up we already have coming.

    •Tea Party/Sanji/Big Mom
    • Beast Pirates
    • Possible crew split up

    And now you wanna throw in a fight just to hit the fan? Nah man. Obviously the very presence of a samurai isn't going to go well and there's definitely going at least be some verbal insults being thrown around but what does this do?

    The only thing I want from these 2 is more on Raizo and what he did to piss of Kaido so much, or rather what he is to him. The minks aren't even in a condition to fight right now, hopefully someone will have enough sense to talk things out so we don't spend a whole chapter or 2 with meaningless fighting.

    I don't even get why they hate samurai, it should be just be Razio. The samurai as a whole did nothing to you, Raizo did. Raizo sure as hell had no business being there, but he couldn't have been sent there.

    But who am I kidding? This is Oda, he loves doing this s*** lmao.

    The Zou arc if it were short would probly take like 1-3 chapter for the samurai to clear things up. The Minks seem to have some common sense left to be good listeners plus the SH know the samurai. Plus the two dukes were badly injured.
    Unless if Jack decided to return or Kaidou himself.
    Oh of course there's always flashbacks that come w/ the samurai... duh.

    Team wedding crashers

    • Luffy
    • Nami (she owns Sanji for Thriller Bark)
    • Brook (he needs the sceentime)
    • Carrot (she seems interested in the idea)

    Team Jack/Beast Pirates

    • Zoro (he's the one who's really trying to focus on Kaido's crew, most specifically Jack).
    • Usopp (he's to damn scared to walk right into a Yonko's territory).
    • Franky/Robin (back up)
    • Chopper (the minks still need him and Kaido's crew being Zoan oriented is perfect training for him.

    I kind of wish the strawhats would stick together and not split up again, but I guess focusing on them all at once would be hard for Oda to do.

    And it has been hard. Just look at Brook, hasn't done s*** since Thriller Bark. And don't even get me freaking started on Chopper.

    Nekomamushi should be asleep by now since it is Inuarashi's turn to take guard of Zou.He seems to be the more peaceful and logical of the two so I'm assuming whatever conflict there will be be short.

    I agree with the top paragraph. This arc has been straight to the point, but didn't blurt out everything at once (with regards to Sanji or the Samurai), to at least keep some sort of tension while we see the entire group interact again, well.. Except Sanji. I don't need much action, but I need the set-up for the rest of the upcoming arc and it needs to be done just as well as the previous few chapters. By which I mean taking care of explaining the reason behind the Samurai's plight, which they were going to state when they were travelling up the leg of Zunisha, but Oda obviously left untold for dramatic purposes we'll find out in 1-3 chapters. If there's a clash, I'm pretty sure that another figure is going to show up as a surprise to show how the Samurai are on the SH's side willing to fight for the Minks. And with that, I'm willing to bet that the most likely candidate is Weeble Jr. He was introduced and going after Luffy for a reason and I don't think it is to show up at Big Mom at the same time.

    As for the lower paragraph, I agree that Dressrosa was fantastic, but I doubt Oda had too much fun with it. It seemed like a weird knot he had to untangle to get to the end (what do the other characters do while Luffy is in the Collosseum, which backstory to tell when and do I in liniear storytelling or parallel, etc), and by the time he did, he had spent way too much time. Clear case and point is in Luffy and Doffy's fight: "Twenty minutes later". You simply don't do that in the end of the big main fight unless you realized you've took too long.

    That's the last stage before the end of this arc, as when Oda toys with telling at the beginning, he'll tell at the end. I'm banking on Weeble Jr. to show up when tension gets high when the Samurai head into town. Samurai fight with Luffy against Weeble Jr. and the Minks see this and therefore remain on the SH-side eventhough they brought samurai into the country. That makes sense, as Weeble Jr. is heading to Luffy, and it wouldn't make sense for him to enter the story when Luffy is at BM or Kaidou as that is unnecessary clutter, but here it could be the low level endgame opponent that will end up tagteaming with Buggy or something (both are Shichibukai).

    The Minks aren't in a condition to fight, but have you noticed how Nekomamushi simply refuses to rest? He's a selfdestruct-fighter. He'll fight till he isn't able no more. Though he may have fallen asleep due to bloodloss.. xD

    Nah, he has done quite a bit post-TS. Specifically in Punk Hazard when he was up and about with Zoro and Kinemon. Nothing major, sure, but I liked how he seemingly has developed his Devil Fruit in great strides. Probably the biggest development in terms of DF-usage we've seen in the crew, outside of perhaps Gear 4th.

    Brook's DF is my favourite from the strawhat crew, but I think he should do more, same with Nami who still seems weak to me even post-timeskip. ^^;
