Great chapter! For a second, i thought Zoro was going to challenge kinemon. Poor Law got disciplined with a flute. Teaches him to never leave his chamber
I wonder how C.C. defeated everyone. If it was due to his gas, then why did it only affect the strawhats and marines?

Man, I thought they were goners (well, severely hurt) when that slime exploded!

Yasopp is a father, too - that didn't stop him

Though yet another swordsman with a DF is a bit reduntant, even though he looks like an interesting character. They could travel to Wano together like they did with Vivi...

Yeah, pretty weird. Maybe CC can create a gas cloud that only affects those he targets (kinda of like a DNA-match bio weapon). That would be pretty interesting...


I don't understand how did he know that Law turned on him, or was it just a bad translation?

Seems possible, since hes a scientist... Or maybe he came up with some antidote, which he gave his men. If thats the case, i hope for his own sake, that he doesnt have it laying around in his lab...

It could be armor haki, what he did to the flute.

What?

I was saying that it seems likely that Law and Welgo had a prior relationship where either Law worked for Welgo or else Law was Welgo's student.

The way you put it suggested that you were basing that assumption on the fact that he wanted Law to use "-san"

Yeah, about mystery dude's name: While I personally also like Virgo, this is what Aohige had to say about the name over at AP:


Quote:
correctsion: Usually spelled Wergo, it seems. Pronunciated Vergo.

Meh, stinkin' german.

And when someone there did point out that the name could be spelled Virgo:


Quote:
It could be, but Virgo is usually spelled ヴァルゴ.
Like in Saint Seiya.

^So there you go. And frankly, I'd trust Aohige's word a lot more than some doofuses who can't even spell Law's name right.


But yeah, I guess I'll stick with Wergo myself, for the time being.

I kinda see what he's saying: Since none of the Straw-Hats are parents themselves (well, we can't be sure about Brooke, but I won't get into that now), it's doubtful that any future members would be parents, either. And since Kinemon seems to care quite a bit about his son, I doubt he'd abandon him to join a pirate crew after all the trouble he went through to rescue him....

Then again Oda has added an 88 year old walking, singing an farting skeleton, a tanuki and a fish-faced waterbender.

However...honestly if anyone does join the crew now, I hope it's female because while I love Robin to death and Nami's quite the looker...we need some more XX chromosomes up in here...

But you know, now I'm wondering if Monet is also a haki user? I mean, last chapter indicated that she had a DF ability (which may or may NOT be related to her harpy body), so her also being capable of fighting with haki isn't far-fetched at all, IMO. 'Sides, this is the New World we're talking about here..... powerful haki users should be a dime a dozen in these parts (meaning that Law, Pekoms, and Wergo would only be the tip of the iceberg).....

Yes, that was where I got that from.

Is there a problem with my inference? Why would you ask someone to call you 'master' or 'teacher' if you weren't their teacher before?

I never stated that he had a weird quirk for honorifics.

Alright, first off, take it easy. I don't get why you're taking an aggressive stance...

Secondly, there was no mention whatsoever of Virgo wanting Law to refer to him as master or teacher. The only thing Virgo said regarding the way Law addresses him was that he should call him "Virgo-san", not -sensei, not -sama or anything that would indicate that he was Law's superior.

Yes, it looks like they definitely know each other from years ago (as he previously mentioned something about him being more grown-up). But again, no mention of him being a teacher or wanting Law to refer to him as such.

I never once stated that you said anything about him having a weird quirk for honorifics...I was the one that said he could have it...

Both gravity and weight change are dragon fruit powers that we've already seen, so it can't be that. However, I am much more intrigued by the bifteki stuck to his cheek anyway.

Main highlights of this chapter:

The name of Law's friendly nemesis, Vergo/Wergo. Almost sounds like Virgo/Wendigo. Also Kinemon's fighting style with the foxfire ability.

About the name of the new guy: There is no german word like Wergo or similar. Virgo on the other hand is latin for virgin. Dont know if that is of any importance...

yea I think the bottom line is that oda can do anything. that being said, i agree that its unlikely to have a loving parent ever join the crew, but oda could just as easily have a story where the father/mother needs to join the crew out of honor or obligation to help their kid in some way while someone else takes care of them.

here, here on all counts. i'm still surprised they didnt get an amazonian or a mermaid to join

I think you meant "isn't", and I agree. Wergo-san seems to simply want to be addressed respectfully/formally. 'Call Me Mr. Wergo.' There need be no specific past reason for the honorific beyond weird character quirk (though, of course, it is always possible that Law and Wergo-san do have a more specific past as paradox has speculated on).

Are you trying to say that Brooke is Yassop's father .

^ i highly doubt that the harpy-girl will join the crew. Too much similarities with the cicumstances under which Robin joined. A mysterious female assistant to the villian, that is going to betray her employer.... But who knows.
