Hey guys, it's been a while! Now that my computer's up and running again I can catch the spoilers now (though I'm a little late this time, what with the next chapter being released and all, heh). Anyway, spoiler summary translation credit goes to Aohige:



-Chapter title is "Seemingly non-existent Island". The ministory involves Caribou arriving at a snowy island.


-The first portion of the chapter focuses on Brownbeard, who tries to warn his men about Caesar's true nature. Sadly, his efforts are in vain. Before CC is about to finish off the pirate, Luffy busts into the scene with an Elephant Gun!


-An angry Luffy asks CC what's the deal with the island. The scientist answers that it's like air: It exists, yet at the same time, it doesn't. He also tells Luffy that he doesn't know what kind of mess he's getting into by teaming up with Law. Law wants to capture him because he's the only one who knows how to produce SAD, and Doflamingo's SAD factory produces artificial Zoan devil fruits called "SMILE". Furthermore, One of the Four Emperors already has an army of SMILE users under their wing....!!!!


-CC then warns Luffy that by sabotaging their plans, he'll attract the wrath of just about ALL of the superpowers in the New World. After listening to the story, he just knocks the crap out of the scientist, and says he doesn't care, as he's done nothing BUT piss of world powers this whole time....!!!




Oh Luffy, don't ever change. Anyways, great to finally learn what the deal with that SAD stuff is. Naturally, I'm very interested in learning which of the yonkou has a Zoan army (I'm guessing Kaidou). But even if Luffy does piss off the world powers, he'll still be needing lots of powerful allies on his side, methinks....

An army of zoan types....no worries for the straw hats they could kick their asses no questions asked.

Luffy loosing it and letting his punch speak for itself is always great, good old fashioned typical Luffy!

Feel sorry for brown beard and everything tricked by Ceasar. Makes me wonder if vega punk is a good guy but just on the marines side or if he is an even more troublesome version of ceasar.

Boy, the Smile revelation is gonna make things a LOT more interesting, IMO. Just imagine if Smile users even have an Awakened form (which, BTW, I'm also hoping that Momo will have)? It really does just go to show the types of crazy forces who control the New World.....



Also, about the ministory: Apparently, the island Caribou washed up on was the same winter island that we saw Drake at before the skip. So it looks like our muddy friend is in Kaidou's territory now.....


Edit: Holy crap, it looks like Oda actually foreshadowed the Smile's appearance before the skip:

Well, it feels like we got a hint as to which Emperor Law and Luffy are planning to overthrow now. Considering the army of manmade zoan fruit users, it really doesn't seem to be either Shanks or Blackbeard's style, so probably either Kaido or Big Mum. I'm actually leaning more towards Big Mum having seen some of her soldiers on fishman island though.

Ah, I so missed the wrathful Luffy.

The entire time Caeser was talking, and Luffy was quiet, you knew what's going to happen next.
Yet flipping page after page wondering when that SHUT YOUR FACE punch was going to land.

Little does CC realize Luffy's had more than a scuffle with multiple Warlords, as well as declare war on a Yonkou already!

It felt good seeing that hard fist-print on the face of the gutter trash.

BTW, there was actually one small moment in this chapter that I really enjoyed: When Luffy walks past Brownbeard, he lightly pats his head before confronting Caesar. I just like how he showed some respect for the guy in such a silent, subtle way. Just goes to show how boss Luffy can be when he's serious(ly pissed).

Yeah, it was like "good fight, bro. Now rest. I'll tear up this sh*t".

Very cool chapter. The final double spread was so damn satisfying. It always feels so good to see Luffy punch the crap out of scum like Caesar.

The reveal that zoan type DFs are being mass-produced by Dolfamingo is very interesting. I'm also guessing the emperor with the zoan army is Kaidou, but I think it could also be Big Mom.

That's amazing. I never thought that line would actually turn out to be a major plot point. I assumed it was just Doflamingo being his weird happy self.

Damn I never really once paid much attention to that in the past, thought Don was just being the Don. Kudos for remembering that.

Lots and lots and lots of fun. Children are finally pacified, Shino will now take a slight back seat for a bit (I'm expecting Franky to solve that problem), and the first of the trio of bad guys is gone (bye Monet, your powers were a needless rip off and you looked stupid with your bird feet). We can now settle down to some fun fighting and hopefully some plot advancement (and find out what the hell Usopp and Brook are up to (I thought they were with Brownbeard)!).

Props to Brownie-kun for standing up for his friends and what he believes in. Casear is a douche of the highest caliber, but he is also dangerous, so good going Brownbeard for standing up...even if you are annoying and hopefully will disappear after this arc...

It's always good to see Luffy's angry punch of ownage. Also nice to finally hear what SAD's purpose is. As for the emperor with the smile zoan army, there's a good chance it's the one Law wants to topple. My guess would be Kaidou as well.

I'm guessing its Kaidou but at the same time why tease big mum with peakoms and co. being at fish man island and luffy declaring war against her.

Argg, just a few weeks ago I feared that we are going to see armies of manmade DF powered enemies and now we have the confirmation.
I would have preferred if the story didn't went this way.

now we know full grasp about everything...

I like how Luffy said, "I have deal with that kind of person"

let's kick Caesar out! I've been annoyed by his trolling face a lot in this chapter

I would think that Blackbeard may have gotten his hands on this army during his "Devil Fruit hunt".

Yup, looks like I'm not the only one that remembered that scene. This chapter finally clarified what Doflamingo was talking about with the age of smiles. As for which emperor he's doing business with, my money is on Kaido. Out of all the emperors, I've always envisioned Kaido to have the zoan theme going on; and with this latest chapter's revelation, that extends to his subordinates as well, it seems. Awesome stuff.
