    @Dreamer I too was blown away at how easily he was restrained.

    Then, what was that "Be careful in the future"!? Was that just the way Yakuza speak, or was that some foreshadowing?

    Well, it's Oda we are talking about. Both of them are possible.

    When Zoro saw Kawamatsu he said: " a fishman ? "

    Just like Wano's people think that Devil Fruit powers are magic, what if Kawamatsu is indeed a fishman and they think he's a kappa ?

    There lays a possbility that the monk is Denjiro, just as Kawamatsu fattened over the years, he could have too and he is wearing somthing so his possible pointy ears could not be visable. It could also just be another extremly helpfull member of the rebels.

    As different people mentioned, this is most likely a given. You don't mention a weapon stealer and a weapon demand in one chapter if you don't have a plan for that.


    not extremely hyped about the chapter, no really big progress, just some smaller hyori and kawamatsu, Zoro being no step closer to his thrird sword and no more info given about Sword God Ryuma. I liked how they mentioned in 937 that Ryuma was buried with his sword, closing a possible loophole (I mean it is historically not weird to be buried with stuff, but still).

    But I still have questions about Ryuma and the timeline of everything. We see him in Thriller Bark with his sword, when did he get there? Was he traveling? No because he died on Wano right? So Gecko stole the body and the sword, which are national treasures (nice guards m8) and then everything is starting to fall? That's what Gyukimaru says. We know that Kaido and Gecko's pirates clashed in the new world, which ended in the sole surviving of Gecko.

    I dunno man, I need intell on that.

    Stampede's unbelievable success will give Oda a huge mental boost to make this arc an amazing one. He needed that.

    Seeing his movie outperform DBS Broly and get a higher rating than Avengers Endgame and Avengers Infinity War will only make him much much more motivated and confident.

    Wano arc will be a blast.

    I forgot to comment about the clash between Kaido and Big Mom. The fact that they're clashing for hours makes me think more about the clash between Kaido and Red Hair. Just how fast Red Hair Pirates arrived from the end of the skirmish? How long did the clash lasted?

    This is good to hear, but I'm wary. I don't want him to overwork himself like he's been known to do.

    I think Oda is giving us an example of what he said during the introduction of Kaido. " If it's a 1 vs 1, Kaido will win. That's what people say. "

    No matter how long the 1v1 between Kaido and Big Mom continues, I think Kaido will win in the end. It would be too early to break that " rule " right now, Kaido is still getting hyped up.

    Why on earth did Zoro call Kawamatsu a fishman? Anyway, goddamnit I've been waiting for the prison break for like months now lol XD when is it gonna happen? Also, with two Yonko around, I can't picture how they'll manage to attack. Or are they gonna take advantage of the fight between BM and Kaido and infiltrate Kaido's mansion first??

    Lol it's hilarious already just by picturing it XD

    I think Luffy wasn't even doing anything at the time. He never bothers to fight against anyone he doesn't consider enemies, so I think that's why they could easily hold him down.

    Lol that would be hilarious XD

    Damn, you really gotta be careful next time, who knows if he's just lurking somewhere looking at theories.

    I thought that was just a threat since they were pissed, yes, very Yakuza style, that's how they usually act. What do you have in mind when you say foreshadowing?

    I thought it was weird too that Zoro mistook him as a fishman, when he obviously looks like a Kappa. But Kawamatsu claims he's a Kappa himself, so probably Zoro was just stupid. Unless he's half Kappa half fishman? Lol.

    @GoldenVenus by foreshadowing, I just meant that maybe they’d have an unprotected run-in in the future.

    Seems like he still has to win them over.

    + Nope, his sword and he won it fair-and square lol.
    + I thought we already knew that?
    + Yeah Chopper needs more "doctor flexing" moments but Oda should have gone all Food Wars on showing chopper make the medicine like it's and art form.
    + See I expected even more.

    My dude got fat off poisoned fish!

    Pretty sure Gyukimaru is one of the scabbards. I would be amazed if he isn't; would make a lot of this focus on him seem rather pointless. The scabbards as a whole don't seem incredibly powerful but they'll be enough to help with the fodder and average opponents.

    As far as weapons are concerned I'm amazed we haven't been introduced to some legendary blacksmith who is going to crank out weapons left and right. Could still happen. It's doubtful that Gyu has thousands of weapons.

    Now if only Shueisha could treat their creators properly and move into the 21st century. Too many great stories are negatively impacted by the working conditions place upon them and expected of them.

    Gyukimaru is the one Kinemon is looking for. Im sure his powers holds the key to supplying the weapons for all the samurais and prisoners.

    Thank me later
