One Piece 711 – Talked About Being Screwed Over!

Trafalgar Law just can’t catch a break – it seems like the hunter has now become the hunted, and the reality of his adverse situation does look pretty grim. I’m pleased to learn that Doflamingo still has a trick or two up his sleeve and just when you thought he has been boxed in, the Heavenly Yaksha flips the situation around to his favor. There was always a sense that the Marines have a bigger role to play in this conflict and their presence has certainly been felt early and throughout – whether it was Admiral Fujitora, CP-0 or the grunt’s ship that crashed onto Green Bit. The Surgeon of Death himself did intentionally lead the Marines to their location – as a precautionary measure – but it appears that Doflamingo had the exact same idea in mind and he has now teamed up with Issho in an effort to thwart his opponent’s plan. Fleet Admiral Akainu has made clear that he will not let the Straw Hat-Heart alliance run riot and cooperating with Doflamingo would, no doubt, give the Marines the perfect chance to rein in both Luffy and Law. If Doflamingo is indeed an ally of the Marines, it would also imply that his Shichibukai status remained very well intact and the news of his resignation was nothing more than a pretense to corner their real target. It’s hard to overstate just how complex the dialogue behind the scenes is and I suspect the most recent chess move by Doflamingo is merely a taste of what the flamboyant pirate is capable of.

To my great surprise, the identity of Law’s informant is none other than Sanji – who was last seen in the company of Violet. Presumably, it was the dancer who clued Sanji in on Doflamingo’s conniving scheme and I have a sneaking suspicion the person that she wants Sanji to kill is, in fact, the captain of the Donquixote Pirates. The King of Dressrosa has made his fair share of enemies – that much is clear, and we can probably add the entire civilization of dwarves into that long list. Wicca, the dwarf/fairy that Zoro bumped into, revealed a certain animosity that exists between her people and the Donquixote Family, and with that revelation, it was also made apparent that Doflamingo is planning an ambush for the Thousand Sunny. No question, the dwarf of Tontatta Kingdom is an interesting bunch – it’s not just their goofy character disposition that fascinates me to no end, the powerful physical capability that they posses was also exemplified in this chapter. With multiple subplots running at the same time, I don’t think we’ll be getting a breather any time soon and as Franky and Zoro head towards the same destination, it would also be interesting to see what kind of drama and commotion await them at the flower field – and perhaps that’s where the SMILE factory is!

Random tidbits:

  • “Nothing to report from Sector B” – Are you absolutely sure? Robin’s chest is filled with treasures!
  • “Overly trusting is an understatement” – Robin’s “WTF” expression was just priceless!
  • “If you refuse, we’ll have to strip you” – Such a shame that they didn’t proceed with the plan.
  • “We’ve returned your Den Den Mushi to the wild” – That was a moment worthy of a facepalm!
  • I wonder what tall tale did Usopp make up this time – He’s a hero all right!
  • “I told you to climb the stairs, you dimwit” – The sight of Zoro getting diss by a dwarf had me laughing out loud!
  • A love story between the Toy Soldier and Rebecca – Does that mean she’s no longer in the running for the Straw Hat’s new nakama?
  • The warrior dwarf Leo is probably a Devil Fruit user and his Nui Nui no Mi can perform quite a remarkable feat – Maybe he’s a potential candidate for the Straw Hat crew.

tl;dr: @SeishunRC – #OnePiece 711: The hunter has now become the hunted – Law vs Doflamingo vs Admiral Issho! #Manga

    I think one of the little ones will become a new crew member.Luffy would be all over that lol.

    Robin’s reactions was hilarious, Robin could not compute.

    I wish I was small enough to explore Robin’s mountains ;/

    • June 12, 2013 at 6:18 pmSmith

      I thought one did, but wasn’t big enough to see the whole picture. Dem Robins at point B.

    • June 12, 2013 at 6:26 pmMonkey D Kawai

      i have my big kudo to the gnomes for made our Robin had that priceless reaction,even our hero the more dumber Monkey D Luffy can’t make Robin had that face

    • June 14, 2013 at 7:46 amEbisu

      Anyone would like to investigate those sectors :P

  • June 12, 2013 at 6:00 pmEmD

    It was a good day to be a dwarf.

  • June 12, 2013 at 6:08 pmMonkey D Kawai

    Toy x Hot Gladiator,never expect this before
    good job Oda. (y)

  • June 12, 2013 at 6:36 pmBobina

    I’m hoping that Oda is more open to having fun with Robin after this. I absolutely loved seeing her completely baffled.

  • June 12, 2013 at 6:40 pmraiken66

    I wonder how this will play out since Doflamingo didnt actually leave the shichubukai and law technically is still apartof the shichubukai as well so will fujitora attack and try to capture him with doflamingo’s help? anyways this was a pretty good chapter

  • June 12, 2013 at 6:52 pmKarn

    It was hard for me to concentrate on reading this chapter. I was so distracted by dat Robin. I couldn’t stop drooling because she was so sexy.

  • June 12, 2013 at 7:02 pmserventarcher

    R-Robin-chan o_o I fell behind on One Piece in the past couple months, but it seems like it’s finally time to catch up…

  • June 12, 2013 at 7:13 pmK

    Shit just effing real! I knew I just knew someone like Donflamingo won’t take things lying down and by God he could basically annihilate the alliance right here before they could even attempt to take down a Yonko.

  • June 12, 2013 at 7:26 pmMormegil

    From SJ: “Oda is not fully recovered yet, and the editorial decided to put him on a schedule that’s not too strenuous to his health, until he’s up and running ok.”

    Oda should take a month off or something.

  • June 12, 2013 at 9:20 pmLemona

    THis was a good chapter, it was basically building up for the eventual confrontation involving all strawhats~
    But most of all, I really wanna see this arc on anime as im sure it wil be better portrayed in the anime due to the chaotic nature of this arc hehe
    Im glad Robin got some attention this week, it was funny to see her reaction to how trusting those little gnomes were haha

  • June 12, 2013 at 9:26 pmryuuzaki

    darn robin. right from the start of the chapter, im releasing fumes from my head and breathing heavily. :3

    interesting little folks as expected of Oda, nothing comes out normal from him.
    i just had this feeling before that doflamingo is no way going down easily like that, another surprise from oda. grrr!

    get well soon oda, you still have 10 years to complete your masterpiece so take care of your health.

  • June 12, 2013 at 10:10 pmWill

    A place with a bunch of weird plants and everyone believes every lie you say… this is like usopp paridise.

  • June 12, 2013 at 10:31 pmTheOrangeOne

    Fan service done right. Ecchi genre needs to learn from Oda!

  • June 12, 2013 at 10:48 pmK C M

    I can’t be the only one to say that Robin was almost if not completely sexually assaulted, at the very least I’m the only one using the explicit term. By the way most of the gnomes look a lot like chopper.

    It looks like One Piece takes another break next week, that means that EO(the author)’s health condition is still critical but I believe that everything is going to be fine, hang in there EO we’re with you and my Prayers are with you too.

  • June 13, 2013 at 2:08 amOREO

    Permission to explore point ‘B’ thoroughly sir!!

  • June 13, 2013 at 2:17 amCrook

    Well, Oda said he slept only 3 hours per night and spent the rest of his time on One Piece, so this is what happens. No offense Oda, but even you should rest now and then as well.

  • June 13, 2013 at 3:14 amCelecia01

    I have to say, I really loved this chapter. After see so many new characters come into the picture (as usual) it was nice to have a chapter that focused pretty much on the crew we all know and love. Can’t wait to see what happens between Law and Donflamingo, should be good. Also, anxious to see what happens to the Sunny. Nami, Chopper and Brook are much stronger after the time skip but will be interesting to see how they fare with the enemies coming their way. Whatever happens, can’t wait for next week!

  • June 13, 2013 at 6:22 amImPossible

    Robin… *nosebleeds*

    oh well, that was good.

  • June 13, 2013 at 8:57 amAnanas

    It’s my fetish.

  • June 13, 2013 at 1:24 pmYanDaMan

    I hope they keep Robin’s hair this way. Look so much better than her post-time skip look.

    Also, dem legs and hills :3

  • June 13, 2013 at 4:02 pmTred

    That´s just a guess,but i think the toy soldier was a human before,and he was Rebbecca´s love,when someone(Doflamingo?) cast the “toy curse” on him.And that hat he uses looks like the one who Luffy-Ace chilhood friend used, back then, on the flashback.Who knows,maybe Oda is preparing a big reveal to the final of this arc?

  • June 13, 2013 at 7:38 pmrandom viewer

    Robin’s picture there should be a full-size one!
    I wonder if maybe that soldier was human before but he’s under a curse or something. (If you take Rebecaa’s words from context…)
    You pointed all my LOL moments in the “Random tidbits” except…
