Luffy’s plan revealed
Luffy uses a mirror inside the wedding cake and using the abilities of Brulee to reflect an image of someone onto another person. Luffy captures several animals and Luffy uses the copies as the distraction as they jump out of the giant cake. The cake topples over and Big Mom is outraged at the sight of the cake falling. She demands that a new cake be made and she threatens to kill the cooks. She uses her “Soul Pocus” abilities on them an kills them.
Luffy vs Big Mom
Big Mom wonders which of the Luffy clone’s are real. Bege is impressed with Luffy’s plan at first, but is shocked when Luffy reveals his real self. Luffy targets the photo of Mother Carmel, Big Mom uses Zeus and Prometheus and prepares to attack him. Katakuri attacks Luffy with a sticky substance trapping his arms and legs. It is revealed that Katakuri consumed the Mochi Mochi no Mi a logia-type devil fruit.
Jinbe is boss
Jinbe rescues Luffy from Katakuri’s attack. He admits to Big Mom that he was the one that told Luffy about Mother Carmel’s photo. Big Mom accuses him of trying to start a mutiny, he tells her that he’s merely quitting her crew and joining the Strawhat’s. Luffy is excited to hear this news and Big Mom claims that she is fine with this. However, she demands that Jinbe offer up his lifespan. Jinbe consents to his lifespan being taken, but Big Mom fails to take his life.
Jinbe explains that “he will not cower at a mere yonko,” especially if he plans on joining the crew of the “future pirate king.” Big Mom announces that they are now officially enemies, meanwhile, Brook appearing as a Luffy clone breaks the picture of Mother Carmel. This chapter was amazing. I knew the plan wasn’t going to go off perfectly, but the chaos that occur was fun to watch.
Jinbe as always is the standout of this chapter, having no fear of Big Mom is impressive considering her power. I couldn’t be more excited for Jinbe to join the Strawhat’s. Caesar is a red flag for me, I think he will betray them at some point. Sanji seems to have fallen in love with Pudding, but despite the fact she was abused, her bad choices may be too much to forgive. Is it possible that Sanji leaves as Jinbe joins the crew? Anyway another good chapter.
