Chap review :
The cover page... tho it has historic worth.. but something caught my eye and i bet your's as well..
the description on law's shirt and the way law sat mimics sanji's
cover page and his epithet
and the fact that Yamato's
potential DF is also referred to on it .. is intriguing, might be an augur to future events idk.
OF THE CHAP :
So we begin with luffy falling off of Onigashima and kaido mimicking luffy's words and stating that luffy has yet to hone his Coc, which makes sense since he just tapped into such an ability ig you can say that oda's eyeing towards making luffy's Coc gradually mote efficient when he returns because his raw usage of that ability was pointed out by kaido himself...so a likely foreshadowing and requisite to beat Kaido.
Moving on, seems like Bao was oblivious of what is happening on the roof and Kaido tells her to announce the result of the battle and you see Bao's expression of shock right after through the call..
Now here is what i think happened.. luffy hesitated in midst of executing a move for some odd reason, you can say he got blitzed but then it wouldn't make sense of the period of time he had been fighting Kaido and has rendered him wheezing,plus he has shown to keep up with Kaido's insane speed when he coated his fist in Coc and consequently in their iconic clash.. so its either he pushed himself too much or he relapsed on his shoulder injuries and hesitated
About the joy boy reference.. i believe that would play a role and will intertwine somehow with Momo hearing voices.. its possible that luffy gets saved by sea kings...but something huge is definitely about to show up and will save luffy... all in all that "joyboy" citation was a nice addition to wrap up the roof top fight
This chap proved one of my theories regarding the fight being taken to the dome.. thats noice as well
Momo reading Oden's journal is something i have been waiting for and his reaction is golden.. seems like he has now another reason to make it out alive from this war and to become a Shogun.
Chopper's FB was a very constructive way to portray and affirm that there are interaction between the crew during voyages as well, it elaborates the crew's character and the story which adds more to our offscreen imagination .About sir Tanuki, he has grown alot as a combatant and now is dealing with Queen but he has to find a way to be efficient with his attacks.. he has the potential to wield haki in this fight but the development on hid end is great.. This arc is the first post-time skip arc where all the SHP meet a daunting foe and really struggle in their endeavor ..sanji has his fight soon to come fosho as well...so expect some serious post-wano development from everyone
Now that I have mentioned the crew i can't leave the fact that Zoro and Sanji just capped what Bao said about Kaido being generous..the extent of their loyalty is shown again through their words and are still believing in luffy atm.. ik everyone capping it but the timing of their CAP couldn't have been better taking their role in the crew as combatants and support to luffy in consideration.
Jimbe is fighting Ww who's in his base using martial arts I ASSUME.. idk why but they look casual as hell while from fighting eachother... i hope this fight picks up on panel in further chaps and further background is also portrayed hopefully.. I'm intrigued.
Robin and Brook seem to be alright which is good to know, and Nami and Ussop are fine as well... BUT
EUSTASS CAPTAIN KID IS DOING ALRIGHT AGAINST BBM,CHAD FR!
ETC... almost everyone on the god damn island reacted to this
Kanjuro Bids Farewell
Now lets move on to Kanjuro's death..
the words spoken by kanjuro at the brink of death.. Boom, and the whole ambience turned melancholic in its resonance .. honestly my respect for Kanjuro has grown alot EXPONENTIALLY for that fact.. his death reminds me of Dr Heruluk...
and the way they died uttering such heavy words describing their mortality.. one depicting it as a act ...
In a way kanjuro tells Kinemon that "thx for drawing curtains to my treacherous life aclose friend... its sure was the play of a lifetime and well befitting of you to ink a period on my final act" .
a very dense chapter in terms of emotions and resolution for Kinemon and kanjuro, this one was jam packed with info and suspense.. LOVED IT.. it definitely developed on all aspects and plots and took the announcement as a way of doing so..
A Climax and a character worth remembering.. this dialog from kanjuro was the highlight for me in this chap. one hell of a chapter... next week will surely carry this gleam... on the edge of me chair already...
See you all in the next PLAY then.
