Okay seriously, Luffy is such a badass and I don’t think I’ll ever get used to him casually using haki to knock people out. Sanji on the other hand has been completely useless since this arc began. It is curious as to how much better the mermaid princess is than the others, however trivial, even though I pretty much agree with Sanji anyway. I think Sanji’s turning into stone because of Okama blood transfer is going to be useful sometime later this arc, with his heavier self falling on something probably.
Was it really surprising how easy Luffy owned Decken? Or is he just one of those persistent characters that seem much stronger than they look? *cough*Wanzo*cough* Man, I hated that guy. With Nami’s direction given, we’re going to have the crew split in half; one half will be at Neptune’s mansion, the other at the sea forest. Oh, and Robin off in the middle of nowhere enjoying her poneglyphs. Perhaps what’s most awesome is that Zoro seems to have beaten Hodi in one swift slice. Is this the fruits of his training? Is this how powerful a two year gap is? OP’s power level shift will be determined next chapter.
