One Piece Chapter 936 Review – The Great Sumo Inferno


Raizo and Kawamatsu

Raizo is surprised that Kawamatsu is still alive. A former follower of Kozuki Oden, he was imprisoned in Udon. Kin’emon considers him , along with Denjiro and Ashura Doji as one of the most powerful followers of Oden. He clearly has high endurance, as he has been forced to eat poisonous fish for 13 years without dying or getting ill. So far one of the central themes of this arc is time travel. I think its both in the literal since (Toki had time travel abilities) and more figurative, when finding characters from the past. Raizo plans to free Kawamatsu, but is interrupted by guards. He disappears in a smoke bomb.

Luffy and Hyogoro, Sumo tag team

Queen happily talks about executing, Hyo and Luffy. He reveals his event, “Queen’s Contraception Concert: Sumo Inferno” that excites the guards. Luffy and Hyo are fitted with collars that will decapitate them if they fall outside the ring. Queen then informs them that “the pair of them will be fighting a series of sumo matches.” However, if he joined with Kaido’s crew he could go free. Kiado has made used this sort of coercion to great effect. It was never going to work on Luffy, but it has worked on others. In theory he could pretend that to join Kiado and simply escape. Regardless, Luffy is excited to fight in the ring and now that he doesn’t have the seastone cuffs on it will be easy. When the fighting starts, Luffy uses Haki to knock them out.

The raid at the bathhouse

Drake and Hawkins have raided the bathhouse in the Flower Capital. Drake is on a mission to kill Soba Mask. Hawkins demands that all the bathers show their ankles so he could see if they have a crescent moon tattoo. The fan service in this series has increased during this arc. Time will tell if this is limited to the arc or Oda is signalling that he is going to go for fan service more later. Regardless, Nami takes out several patrons, Sanji and Drake when faint from nosebleeds when she drops her towel. Nami, Robin, Sanji and Shinobu escape. Finally, Zoro confronts a large swordsmen who took his sword. Zoro says he intends to take the weapons from him. The two begin to battle.

  1. I said this in my review of this chapter, and I will say it again: Queen just assured that Luffy will be getting out. With his devil fruit powers and haki baclk, plus the strength he got from training, he’ll curbstomp the guards. Just get that collar off, and he’s free.
