Seems like Bonney’s capture was true, though I’m not really sure when it was stated that Blackbeard had caught one of the Supernova. It’s a shame though, seeing as she was the only female supernova. Her fate doesn’t bode so well either, as she’s either going to get killed or sent to Impel Down. Seeing how it’s under Akainu’s judgement, death seems more likely. It’s really a pity. Meanwhile, Moria’s death may not be permanent, as it seems to be just an ability of Doflamingo’s to disappear people. Doflamingo’s a rather menacing guy, and the possible future battle between him and a Strawhat will be quite the sight to see.
More or less importantly, the message given by Luffy really did mean something along the lines of, “Don’t worry for now, let’s just keep a down-low until a certain time in the future.” This leads to rather interesting turnouts, such as the gigantic library that Chopper’s island just happens to have. Supposedly some “strong” medicine can be made, which will probably work similarly to stat booster potions you’d see in a typical RPG. It’s also similar to Sanji’s island, where supposedly they have food which can make a better “body”, or “attack cuisine”. Now with glimpses of the New World, and forthcoming stronger enemies, these weird powerups are definitely going to come in handy against the inevitable obstacles they’ll come across. It’ll be interesting to see what the other members “get” from their new renewal to stay at their current areas. From the top of my head, I’m going to assume that Zoro will obtain the biggest powerup once he lets go of his stubbornness to be trained by Mihawk. The First Mate should always be only a step behind the Captain right?
Now I wonder when the timeskip will come in..?
Also, great color picture this week. Loved the different variations of their Jolly Roger brushed on each character.
Question: Does anyone mind that I’ve been doing this on Sunday night recently? Making a post right when the chapter comes out makes sense, but does it really matter? I don’t know, I don’t mind either way. Just wanted some input.
