One Piece Chapter 931 Review – O-Soba Mask, Big Mom gets amnesia

Sanji, Stealth Black

Sanji puts on the raid suit. He doesn’t believe that wearing the suit makes him apart of the Germa. In the suit he wears a black outfit with a mask concealing his face. Law recognizes the suit as a character known as Stealth Black. The character is from the comic strip, Sora, Warrior of the Sea. The suit allows Sanji to turn invisible, though he hopes Franky and Usopp will redesign it later. Anyway, Sanji attacks Page One while cloaked. Page One gets up and transforms into his hybrid form. He attacks and Sanji is knocked through several buildings, however, he has received little damage due to the Germa suit. Page One think Sanji is dead, but, Sanji floats above him hitting him with a surprise attack. Law, Usopp and Franky flee, per Sanji’s orders.

Robin and the Orochi Oniwabanshu

In the Orochi Castle, Orochi continues to party while Robin sneaks around. She finds a room and searches through the old file cabinets. Robin thinks that she could find the location of the Poneglyph. She searches for a secret entrance but is interrupted by a group of ninja’s called the Orochi Oniwabanshu. The leader of the group, Fukurokuju enters and tell her that she has “one chance” to explain herself. I’m not concern that Robin is in any real danger here. She is smart and I trust that she will come up with a convincing lie.

Big Mom forgets who she is

On Kuri, Kuri beach, Tama, Chopper, Momonosuke, and Kiku stumble upon an unconscious Big Mom. Chopper realizing who she is tries to get the group to flee. He figures that she can to get the Straw Hat pirates, he decides that he will kill her. Big Mom awakens to Choppers horror. Chopper is stunned when Big Mom asks “who am I?” It goes without saying that this is a massive chance for Chopper to get a Yonko on the Strawhat’s side. How he does it is important. Chopper being a Doctor will likely treat her amnesia, resulting in her gratitude. Despite her hatred of Luffy, she has a fondness for Brook, Sanji’s cooking and thinks Chopper is cute. If Chopper decides to manipulate her it will likely backfire on him.

One Piece Chapter 930 Review – Ebisu Town

Zoro in Ebisu Town

Zoro arrives to Ebisu Town, where he’s greeted pleasantly by the starving residents. Each of them mentions how hungry and malnourished they are while smiling. Yasu tells him that “since humans have been blessed with the gift of laughter, it would be wasteful not to use it.” They citizens mention that Ushimitsu Kozo arrived last night. Kozo is a thief that steals from the rich to give to the poor. His motives are unclear.

Big Mom arrive for Luffy

Big Mom arrives

In a surprising turn, Big Mom and her pirates arrive at Onigashima searching for Luffy. Having tied carp to her ship, they’re being pull up the waterfall. Kiado, demands that his subordinates stop them. Fearing an “All out war,” Kiado grows more fearful of Big Mom causing trouble. King arrive in the form of pteranodon using his Ryu Ryu no Mi, Model: Pteranodon. He causes the ship of Big Mom to flip over, sending her into the sea. Obviously, Big Mom won’t meet her end her. However, being a devil fruit user she can’t swim, I wonder if her children can save her.

Big Mom falls into the sea

Sanji and his Raid Suit

In the Flower Capital, Law, Sanji, Usopp and Franky are fleeing the Beast Pirates as they try to find Sanji. Law discourages Franky from fighting sighting it’s risks. However, when a woman is under attack from Page One in his spinosaurus form. He demands that they call out to Sangoro and they do so. The civilians flee before Hawkins and Drake arrive, however, Sanji prepares to use his Raid Suit as it protects him from injury and will conceal his identity.

Oda has found a convenient way to get Sanji to use the suit that he refused to use before. It seems like Kiado’s subordinates are going to have dinosaur devil fruit abilities. Considering the vast variety of dinosaur species Kiado may have many Ancient Zoan-type devil fruit users. So far we have only seen three, X Drake, Allosaurus, Page One, Spinosaurus and King, Pteranodon. They’re all aligned with the Beast Pirates. This chapter is the rare one that didn’t feature Luffy at all. This arc does feel that it’s rushed , there’s so many characters both new and old that it can be difficult to focus. Regardless, another great chapter.

One Piece Chapter 899 Review: The Last Stand

My prediction from my previous review was incorrect. Luffy and Sanji are safely on board the Thousand Sunny. Ironically this was the more unpredictable result. Anyway, Mont-d’Or calls Perospero, flipping out as he worries about Big Mom and the cake. He is told that the cake has already been dropped of on Funwari Island. Pero tells him to warn the citizen’s of Totto Land of the consequences of “one of three outcomes.”

First if the cake is poisoned and Big Mom dies, the Big Mom pirates will end. If Big Mom manages to survive being poisoned, she will continue to rampage and destroy Totto Land. Finally, if the cake is delicious then the only problem they will have is the damage already sustained. Of course we (the reader) already know that the cake will be delicious so we could assume the outcome. The citizens of Nuts Island, Poripori Island, Cutlery Island and Ice Island all decry their current predicament, assuming the worsts.

Meanwhile, Chiffon believes in Sanji’s cooking skills, Bege has no interest what’s so ever waiting for Big Mom’s reactions. He transforms into a tank, grabbing his wife and speeding off. He warns that if “the Strawhat’s died he will not forgive them.” Big Mom lands in front of the cake, preparing to eat. Meanwhile, the Strawhat’s are still under assault from Smoothie. However, Judge orders his Germa 66 to attack her fleet. Judge asks Luffy “what Sanji’s worth to him,” he finds it difficult to fathom how he could save someone as “weak minded and a good-for-nothing.”

Luffy comically wave goodbye to Judge, as he questions why “Judge would list all of Sanji’s positive traits,” resulting in Jinbe laughter. Big Mom’s fleet appears in front of them, as they become surrounded. Jinbe begin’s to lose hope, but Wadatsumi rises up from underneath the sea. Wadatsumi is a member of Hody Jone’s crew, Jinbe dives into the sea to reunite with the Sun Pirates, as they plan to serve their former Captain until he leaves Totto land.

At this point it seems that this arc is set to end. The conflict between the Germa 66 and the Big Mom pirates would probably end off screen. At this point I find it hard to believe that they won’t escape. The question I do have is what happens to Pudding, she’s so untrustworthy but she did aid the Strawhat’s. Will she be able to convince her siblings that she wasn’t helping the Strawhat’s? I’ve been predicting that after Big Mom taste that cake she will be grateful to Sanji, but now I’m starting to think that she would want him to be capture so she could have more of that cake. We’ll see next week.

 

One Piece Chapter 898 Review: I promise I’ll be there

Big Mom Pirates vs Germa 66

The Big Mom Pirates are seemingly no match for the Germa 66, particularly Sanji’s siblings. They marvel at the enhanced “bodies” of Germa 66, Oven asks what happened to Nusstorte, the 12th son of the Charlotte Family. Ichiji revealed that he was “thrown into the sea,” along with the “cloud of fleas” that tried to swam them. He dismisses that attempt as being ridiculous due to the “superior technology” of the Germa 66. Mont-d’Or desperately calls his brother after learning of his defeat. Niwatori blames Pekoms for this because of his betrayal, Nusstorte is shown floating in the sea.

Sanji and Luffy

While the Strawhat’s continue to try to escape they are contacted by Sanji. He tells Jinbe that they should “pass by the harbor” and he will be there with Luffy. On the Island, Sanji easily defeats many of the Big Mom Pirates as he escapes with Luffy. Brulee tells them ” not to permit the Straw Hats’ escape,” she reveals to the Big Mom Pirates that Luffy actually defeated Katakuri. This news ruins the image that Katakuri as being “unbeatable.” Oven becomes enraged and he attacks Luffy and Sanji but Ichiji counters with Sparking Valkyrie. Charlotte Yuen tries to attack Sanji but Yonji crushes Yuen’s staff.

Sanji and Luffy “escape”

Sanji begins to escape through the air, several snipers shoot at him. Niji flies and grabs Sanji as the explosion from a missile go off. He travels with Sanji at high speeds, while attacking several Big Mom Pirates with his Tachyon Blade: Henry Blazer attack. Niji throws Sanji and Luffy at the Thousand Sunny, as they fly over Cacao Island, Oven contacts Snack, Brownie and Joconde to deal with them. However, Reiju has already taken them out with her poison. Smoothie’s fleet is being pinned down the Germa. Carrot notices Sanji flying towards them. I predicted that Germa 66 will come and save the Strawhat’s, it was just impossible for them to save themselves. However, I am weary of this potential happy ending. I think someone important will die and it will likely be Sanji. That said Sanji’s father wasn’t anywhere in this chapter, so he could risk his life and save Sanji, finally showing that he cares for his son.


Pikachu Mug Cup

Sanji and Luffy reunite

This chapter mostly centered on Sanji, finally finding Luffy. Sanji tells a emaciated Luffy that “he never told Luffy to wait there.” He gives Luffy the bento box and Luffy eats the food. He claims that the food is “delicious,” noting that Sanji put all the favorite foods of the crew in the bento box. Luffy regains his strength and Sanji tells him that he should leave.

10-12

Luffy tells Sanji that he should return with him, but Sanji says that there are three reasons he cannot return. First, “he attacked and disrespected Luffy, his captain, despite the latter coming to save him.” Second, “Zeff is still being held as a hostage,” and finally, “he still does not have the conscience to let his family be murdered tomorrow.” Luffy becomes upset and slaps Sanji into King Baum’s remains. He asks Sanji to “tell the truth,” and Sanji finally relents, stating “that he wants to return to the crew.” Luffy tells Sanji that they can work together to wreck this wedding.

Chapter notes:

  1. Pekom is still alive
  2. Bobbin is ambushed by unknown assailants
  3. Jinbei informs the Strawhat’s that the wedding will not go a planned

Chapter 107 – What Kaminari Denki is Thinking

Katsuki uses his new technique, AP Shot Auto-Cannon. Seiji is blown backwards. He is shocked that he let his guard down. Hot headed Katsuki charges forward without thinking. Denki attacks Seiji with projectiles. Seiji dodges without much effort. Meanwhile, Seiji secretly sends one of his projectiles underneath the bridge. When Katsuki attacks the projectile manages to touch him from behind. Katsuki get’s balled up in a mass of flesh.

05-13

Denki and Seiji face off. Denki throws one of Katsuki’s grande’s at Seiji. It explodes behind him, leaving an opening for Denki. He uses his Quirk and hits Seiji with electricity. He goes into detail about the limitation of his powers. He explains that a new equipment was invented to fix this. He reveals that Katsuki was actually trying to avoid his classmates during the fight. Denki forcibly tells Seiji to stop “dissing his mates.”

09-7

Without warning, Katsuki and Eijirou attack Seiji. The other students that were trapped in balls of flesh are released. Meanwhile, Izuku, Hanta and Ochako are still in the middle of battle. Hanta and Ochako have combined the Quirks, trapping the other students. Mera announces that 72 more students have past. Izuku, Hanta and Ochako succeed in hitting their targets. Mera notes that despite the fact that the other schools deliberately targeted U.A., Class 1-A hasn’t seen one student eliminated.

111-1

The remaining members of Class 1-A are teaming up together. With the first exam nearing its end, Mera prepares for the second. The team of heroes that will be the obstacle for the second exam, features the elderly and children. Some of the Quirks in this series takes some getting use to. Seiji use of his own flesh is a clear example of this. One of the differences between the strange Quirks in My Hero Academia and the Devil Fruits of One Piece is the general tone of the series.

13-12

My Hero Academia is a little more serious than One Piece. While, both feature abilities that you couldn’t imagine being very strong. I think so far One Piece has manage to make each ability more dynamic. Anyway, Class 1-A so far is exceeding the low expectations of the other schools. It seems clear that they will all past at this point. I’m glad that it appears that despite his personally, Katsuki is actually trying to be a good hero. Finally, the odd team of senior citizens and infants is very curious. Clearly, they will be very strong. However, I’m wonder why they are fighting and how the will stack up against Class 1-A.

Chapter 839 – I Shall Never Forget the Debt That I Owe You

If Oda is trying to get the audience to dislike the Vinsmoke family he’s doing a great job. Who am I kidding he’s definitely doing that. The Vinsmoke prove how vile they are (except Sanji off course). While, eating breakfast Niji refuses to finish eating the meal that was prepared for him. He claims it was unappetizing. Sanji chastises him for being and ungrateful, spoiled brat.

02-03-2

Niji calls the head chef, to account for ruining his appetite. The head chef Cosette apologizes. Niji orders her to remain still, so he can hit her in the face with a plate. He hurls the plate at her, but Sanji catches it. He is understandably outraged at his siblings behavior. Niji believes that she’s “just a servant,” and doesn’t really deserve respect. Sanji begins cleaning up the mess, then he eats the potato of the floor.

05-12

His sibling’s are disgusted and Niji attacks him for what he considers repulsive behavior. Sanji admonishes his family for their terrible behavior. His family is unmoved by his criticism. They actually suggest that he is the one that’s behaving in an unacceptable fashion. Sanji’s father reveals an image of Zell and wonders out loud if he’s responsible for Sanji’s behavior. He warns Sanji that Zell will be killed if he steps out of line.

10-12

To make matters worse, Cosette is found by Sanji. She’s beaten to the point of unconsciousness. Yonji appears and suggests that this is Sanji’s point for sticking up for the help. He then leads a angry Sanji into a room full Germa 66 soldiers in large containers. It goes without saying that Sanji’s family is the worst. Their cruelty and disregard for others is unacceptable.

15-8

That said Big Mom’s family isn’t any better. I can’t imagine that the Strawhat’s alone can succeed in defeating the Big Mom pirates and Germa 66. Finally, Sanji is thoroughly trapped. With his wrist being rigged to explode and Zell under watch, even if Luffy gets to him I can’t imagine how they will escape.

Chapter 812

Capone Gang Bege

Pekoms and Capone Bege arrive on Zou. Pekoms is outraged at the destruction of the city, Karau. He assumes that the “Straw Hats” are responsible. Meanwhile, Wanda and Nami are trying on clothing as Sanji make a fool of himself ogling them. Pekoms arrives and is relieved to find him fellow minks are still alive. He was told that the “Straw Hats” saved them. After seeing the Big Mom Pirates, Caesar panics. He pleads with Sanji to “save” him, but Sanji responds that now that Doflamingo has been defeated Caesar is now “useless.”

021

Sanji confronts Bege and Pekoms, along with Brooke. He asks “what business the Big Mom Pirates.” have on Zou. Pekoms thanks Sanji for saving his home. He reveals that “they had two missions: to capture Caesar and do something that would tear apart the Straw Hats.” He was willing to overlook the last part of the mission. However, Bege doesn’t find his decision acceptable. Pekoms says that he “will take any punishment handed to him”. Bege shots him in the back, shocking everyone.

101

He orders his “men out”, several small soldiers jump of openings in his bodies. The Firetank Pirates return to full size, they surround Brooke and Sanji at gun point. Bege reveals that he ate the Shiro Shiro no Mi, becoming the “Castle Man.” Bege said that “he would have liked to annihilate Pekoms with a cannon, but it would have drawn the minks’ attention and he did not want to deal with their strength.” Bege orders Vito to bring Nami and Chopper. He captures everyone and brings them to his castle. Bege reveals “an invitation for a tea party” sent by Big Mom. The event will be a wedding ceremony, where “Sanji, the third son of the Vinsmoke Family, would be wed to Purin, the 35th daughter of the Charlotte Family.

13

This chapter continues to add to the intrigue of the Zou arc. Pekoms reaction to the “Straws Hats”, saving his tribe wasn’t that surprising. However, Bege betrayal was. The Shiro Shiro devil fruit ability is interesting. However, the most shocking revelation is the fact that Sanji is being forced to marry. I think he may do it if it could save his friends and if she attractive. We’ll see.

Bleach

Chapter 658

Fatal Matters are Cold

The title of this chapter told us who was returning in this chapter. Hitsugaya’s return wasn’t surprising but I’m happy to see him return. Other characters also make a return to the series. The Visored, Hiyori, Lisa, Love, and Ushoda return. For the most part they prove to be useless. At this point Gerard isn’t really that impressive. He’s rather boring and I’m not at all interested in him. However, I would imagine he becomes more interesting when give a challenge. 

11

The first question to ask is “can Hitsugaya defeat him.” I think he can if Gerard’s power is based on “pure power” conversion. If Hitsugaya can circumvent this ability with his ice based attacks, he maybe the only one who can. Anyway, Askin explains his power AGAIN. This time he manages to shoot Yushiro with three arrows through the chest. I don’t know what Yoruichi will come up with to defeat him, but I hope she does. Overall, mostly a set up chapter. I hope Hitsugaya has some new techniques.

He manages to land a hit on Gaara breaking through Gaara’s sand shield. Kimimaro pulls out his own spine, and uses it to wrap around Gaara, who’s sand instantly protects him.
