Kata ain't that bad but yeah, him allowing Germa to escape due to Caesar's involvement ain't a good luck, especially when the man has Future Sight, great mobility and already beat Ichiji once. I know some feel he's overrated but Germa beating him just wasn't gonna happen though just Caesar Clown aiding in their escape when Kata had Oven as help is just underwhelming.
Atleast this way Judge and Caesar can reunite. Just let Queen go to join up with them and that's most of the old gang back together. Regardless of where Oda goes with guys like King and Queen, I hope we get a cover-story update on the Beast Pirates.
