Totally agree with you, I got the exact same mixed feeling hehe.
About the "constant smile" maybe there is some kind of connection with the failure "smile fruit" user on Onigashima.
Maybe Luffy will be able to remove the smile from all their faces and give them their "normal" faces again ?
Really loved this chapter, intense fight. I loved the drunk attitude, the flirting Kaido reaction was really funny.
I totally agree with people talking about Luffy's awakening. We had both Kid & Law so now this will be Luffy's turn, and CP0 action will trigger that. And it's either that or game...
Sanji may have destroyed the suit but Germa probably got copies of it. Or maybe it's something like a curse and the suit will somehow get back to him. Anyway, I dont think he will get rid of "it" so easily, especially since he already wore it. Just my opinion ;)
Zeus becoming part of Nami's climatact is really good but I hope there is more to it.
I mean, during WCI I understood that "these two are specials" and part of BM herself, so my opinion is that Nami would need to have Zeus being part of Nami's soul herself, maybe by making BM doing it one way or...
I agree with you and it's been since Katakuri fight that Im wondering how would awakening unfold for Luffy ?
Kong guns coming straight from the ground ? Simultaneous different Luffy with all gears ? Dofamingo Parasites style that makes all enemies instantly friend with Luffy ?
The head Panel of Orochi is kind of fishy, I dont think that he is dead.
I dont know how or why but I still think his death was too fast and clean and that he will somehow come back later, at a crucial moment of course.
