    So that was actually quite surprising (considering Hyou could barely do any work, but I guess it makes sense if he was starving). Unfortunately, this really felt like an empty chapter and especially after a week break. Unless I missed something, Hiyori revealed the last Scabbards (Inuarashi/Nekomamushi fits I guess). There was some nice character development, and I assume it is to make her more likable. Still seems empty without some sort of eccentricity since her love of her family is universal among allies. I think it's a little weird that Toko suddenly warmed up to Zoro, but it was kinda cute to her in that last panel.

    I think Oda is setting up Law's climax fight. Whoever beat up Bepo/Penguin guys is going to get a butt-whipping from Law. This parade of prisoners could be part of the plan, and especially if it keeps up for a while (I can't imagine it leaves the capitol). Pretty stupid to leave all the prisoners in one location with minimal guards...

    Queen seems really confident. Unless he isn't paying attention to the news, he has to know at least some of Luffy's recent fights. Especially if Luffy gets the busoushoku armor (which is a given with Hyou and the multilayered pun for the chapter title). Other than this last part, which doesn't progress the plot, we didn't get anything really. Hopefully I missed something.

    I'll take that back: @Pacquiao8 at least we finally get to see Jinbei. I'm seeing a scar/line on his face and maybe some residual burns too. Either way, I'll definitely take that considering the previous comments were seemingly implying worse.

    So hiyori is an airhead, and is it safe to say that she’s fallen for zorro?
    We got to see luffy’s training yey!!
    So glad that the fight with katakuri paying off.
    1 thing i notice is that queen saying : Are they blind?this wont be the end
    Its like him implying he see the future too, guess it kinda normal thing for a yonkou admiral.

    Did anyone notice this? upload_2019-4-12_10-39-29.png
    So, what are demons in one piece, i know that Zorro has demon moves with his swords, but why does he know about a kappa demon ?

    Not really, of course we expect him to have advance haki but he knows that some fodders can't beat a > 1.000.000.000 bounty even with sea stone cuffs. The other way around would be Usop vs Queen in Cage, and Kaido just making fun of usopp

    Old man Hyougoro? More like Master HYOUSHI amirite?

    It’s pretty mad just how much the Katakuri fight has developed Luffy’s Haki, and there’s no sign that development’s going to stop anytime soon. I’m looking forward to seeing where this goes...

    Anyone else notice where mr Flowers said you could control the sword to not even cut paper...
    Proof that our boi is an ally and didn’t cut down Hiyori.

    The fact that old man Hyou mentioned the same thing Zoro’s master did is intriguing.

    One of Zoro's flashbacks when he was fighting Mr. 1 Daz.

    This will be a skill Zoro also masters. I think he’s already on the right path. Now, Luffy is wanting to do it with his bare hands.

    • Kawamatsu is definitely a kappa. I forgot who all called that one.
    • Hiyori is at least realizing that she spoke hastily but is having instinct issues. Oda’s having fun lately writing hysterically emotional/conflicted women due to traumatic pasts. Let’s see if she’s useful at least. I’m not saying that I don’t see the cause for the feels.
    • Did she have something to do with the release of the symbol to find the other allies? Something about the way she was talking...
    • That showcase doesn’t seem super secure... and wasn’t that the Flower Capital? Looks like it could be a great staging area. Just plan amongst yourselves now.
    • Oh Law’s gonna put a hurting on some folks. Can’t wait.
    • Queen definitely is paying attention and taking note of Luffy’s actions. He’s not a total idiot at least.
    • The not cutting paper thing/fusing with your sword thing is now a combination of concepts. Previously it was just about using the breath of all things and knowing what to cut or not cut. It was before we addressed Haki. Now we’re into Haki as well so it’s taking it even further. Hype.
    • Training camp indeed!! Yes, go Hyou—I love Luffy’s ability to connect with the right people. ^_^

    i love how Oda was being deceptively not deceptive with Hiyori's reveal.

    - So Kawamatsu is a kappa, that's gonna be weird af.

    - We finally see the complete list of the Nine Red Scabbards.

    - Lol Kawamatsu finally got some entertainment after 13 years. Dude is watching sumo matches from his cell.

    - I'm honestly tired of these SMILE users.

    - So Hyogoro will teach Luffy that Haki. But i don't see how someone will learn that Haki and then proceed to use it to beat an Emperor of the Sea. I just hope Oda won't choose this path, would be very cheap story telling.

    nice chapter though

    I still don't trust Hiyori... She speaks too openly and her face in the page 7 was suspicious in my opinion.

    Hahah! Luffy just thinks this as a part of training :laughing:.

    Cool! Old man Hyougoro was impressive. And I liked the reference to what Zoro's master once told him :).

    I did a post about mastery and the makings of a Yonkou a while back.

    Having mastered the highest levels of Observation Haki is what allowed Luffy to defeat Katakuri. Now, mastering armament is what will allow Luffy's attacks to penetrate Kaidou’s armored scales or high key evolved armament haki.

    I don’t believe that just anyone with advanced armament can defeat Kaido, but having this ability on top of the ability to see the future... That definitely skews the odds in Luffy’s favor to me.

    Each Yonkou probably has one area they’re masters in. So, mastering their specific haki strength plus more types of haki and your devil fruit is going to be the way to defeat them.

    That's possible. But what really troubles me is her open way of speaking. She barely knows Zoro but she told him so casually who she is and it looks like she's trying so hard to convice him that she really is Momonosuke's younger sister. What if she is actually a traitor and she wants Zoro to take her to where the Alliance's hiding place is, so she would work as a spy for Orochi?
