One Piece 628 – A Selfish King
I still laugh in the face of danger for this arc, and Hordy’s threats mean little more than nothing. The weekly wait may have something to do with any emotional disconnect, but I’ll be worried when Hordy actually does something, so most of this chapter didn’t surprise me much. To be honest, his idea on killing all the people who signed those papers is pretty stupid. How can you be a king when you have slain all your people? But he’s the enemy right? He’s supposed to be flawed and stupid.
I thought Luffy would be more sympathetic to the whole situation itself like he was with Vivi’s issues, rather than only going because his crew is captured. He may just be saving his words for Hordy when he meets him face to face later on though. The opposition from Jinbe didn’t come off as too much of a shocker, but I almost forgot that they came here for the clarification on his warning in the first place. As for the battle between them, it feels like a red herring. Should they actually fight next chapter, I will be amused at their power comparison, but I have my bets on Jinbe losing pretty badly.
And for Robin, who fell victim to Usopp’s impressions, she finds a poneglyph as an apology letter. Since the poneglyphs tell the story of the void century, this particular one may apologize for the state of the fishman race. My best guess would be in relation to the oldest things on Fishman Island: the gigantic ship in Fishman District, and the Sunlight Tree Eve.
