Hey guys! Time for the usual routine! Spoilers come courtesy of T and translated by AP's CCC, as always:



-Chapter title is "Blizzard with a chance of Slime". The splash page features Robin messing with Franky while he's arm-wrestling a gorilla.


-Tashigi (in Smoker's body) tries to fight Luffy, but she's no match for him. However, Smoker himself (in Tashigi's body) takes him on, and puts up a better fight. Robin points out that their bodies must have been switched by Law's power, which cracks Luffy up. He then tells the bespectacled VA that they'll have a rematch next time, as it's pointless for him to fight in his current weaker body.


-Franky uses his beam to destroy the gate, but soon he and the others present witness a bizarre sight. Pieces of the slime are falling from the sky! They also fall on the battleship the marines hijacked. Not only does it poison those on board, but when they try to burn the substance, it explodes, killing everyone on it! It's at this time when Caesar himself finally appears, and tells Luffy and co. that since the slime hates water, it's throwing pieces of itself across the lake. But suddenly, during the middle of his speech, Luffy tackles the scientist and captures him...!!!



Wow, another crazy chapter here. So an entire ship full of marines got exterminated by CC's power..... yikes. Still, I doubt that CC will let himself stay captured for long. I mean, he could turn himself into something toxic in order to escape from Luffy's grasp. Now I just wonder how long it'll be before Zoro's group catches up.....


Oh, and the splash page picture is awesome. Well, seeing as the whole raw is out now, it definitely won't be long until the full translation follows....

i don't really have much to say about the chapter except that the slime's properties intrigue me. it explodes when you burn it, it's poisonous and it burns it's enemies like acid. plus it seems to hate water. hmmm...

Geez, the translation I read was kinda sloppy.... I mean, "Row" instead of Law? Really!?



But yeah, not much else to say. Though I suppose I will say I find it kind of ironic that Smoker showed off more fighting skill in Tashigi's body rather than his own. Maybe it's actually best for him to stay in that body from now on, despite what Luffy said.....



And yeah, lol at CC getting caught while in the middle of his speech. Though I do wonder: Since the slime was shown to be combustible, why bother keeping it locked up in the hot side of the island? I mean, shouldn't that half have been nuked to oblivion already? I can only assume that it was being kept in a special container or something during all that time.....


But hey, Luffy vs. CC next chapter! Can't wait to see the master show off some of his moves!

Nobody ever said CC was smart enough to remember that :I

But seriously, it wasn't a grand chapter but I enjoyed it.

Loved the Robin helping out the gorilla bit xD It's always nice when Oda does those random splash pages like that.

Luffy completely shutting down both Smogi and Tashiker was fun, especially when he realized they had switched. But I like that Luffy didn't harm them, knowing that they weren't that big of a threat.

I swear, when I saw bits of the slime flying around I instantly thought it was Zoro going wild, slashing the big slime to pieces and launching the pieces all over the place.
That said, I'm guessing Zoro and his group are going to fight half of the slime while Luffy's group fights the other half. Luffy vs CC will probably turn into a quick skirmish with CC eventually getting away in a chapter or two.

I wonder how Brook's freezing attacks will work on the slime.

No one else wants to see Franky "accidentally" shoot the giant slime with his laser and have the entire place blown up? Just me? Ok!

Cute chapter. I liked Luffy grabbing Smokeshigi's smoking arm. It's always fun seeing Haki in action.

Not much really going on yet (though Luffy attacking CC at the end was great), but the slime explosion was quite shocking. I didn't expect the marines to win the encounter, but the sudden explosion was abrupt and quite tense. Pretty cool. Otherwise, this was a very short chapter.

Smoker got adjusted to the body real fast. Tashigi couldn't even attack (too floaty?). They didn't show law this chapter.

Haha Luffy is so out of control.. that's why he can only be the boss... he can't take any orders or use his head. Luffy is only smart and good at fighting and things related, but any sort of strategy or need for selfcontrol is doomed to fail.

When fighting Luffy is creative, even calculative.. remeber how he spat water to the sky in alabasta in order to survive from Crocodiles attack. But when it comes to stories, stategies or logic... du-uh.. his bored

Lol, Tashigi was really happy when her attack worked, only for Luffy to push her against the floor and being called weak again. Someone could feel really sorry for Tashigi being called weak by everyone.
You'd assume she would have stayed at least a little true to her promise after Alabasta.

I loved seeing Smoker being awesome in Tashigi's body and Luffy being completely confused and shocked by it. Also proves that he is a very good fighter even without Devil Fruit.

And Luffy's reaction on finding out what happened was priceless. Now we only need Zoro's reaction

I'm also really concerned on how Smoker and Tashigi are supposed to get their bodies back. And how they're going to get off that island. I just don't see them teaming up with Luffy again. Especially now that he already has an alliance with Law and that CC probably won't defeat Luffy and Law.

Can't wait for the next chapters

You know, since I also recall you being rather critical of Smoker's fighting style in the past, I'd have thought that you'd share my sentiments about him suddenly fighting better in Tashigi's body, as well.....



Also, about the possibility of the slime being frozen, I sorta doubt that would be too effective, even with Brooke's abilities. I mean, didn't this chapter show that the goo even had acidic properties, as well? If so, freezing it would probably turn out useless. But on the other hand, everyone just needs to splash water on it since CC was nice enough to give away that particular weakness of his "pet" right before Luffy caught him!

Since this chapter is more chemical than usual and we're dealing with a scientist; The slime does not explode because of heat, but because of fire.

If he is trying to keep the slime chemically active, he would need to constantly give it heat, which would make sense to be put near the volcano.

I wonder why Luffy couldn't evade Smokers attacks with his Haki.

Actually, thinking about it, I wonder if Luffy's minor poison immunity he got from fighting Magellean at Impel Down will come into play here and help him a bit again CC?

Minor? A blue-ringed octopus' poison is enough to kill a human, yet he didn't even notice he was poisoned until Chopper told him...I wouldn't call that minor.

Good chapter, although it felt pretty short. Best part for me was definitely Zoro, Sanji and Brook just standing there staring at the Slime.

I doubt Zoro, Nanji & Brook will attack the slime as long as it doesn't attack them.

Well Tashigi's body is just a normal body even if the dimensions and body parts are different from what smoker is used to. Quite different from having to learn how to use a DF ability and a logia at that.
