Remember that the manga is licensed, do not post significant parts of the chapter. This includes images, scripts and direct translations of the manga. Summaries are OK, crops of pictures are OK (only if you need to illustrate your point) but this is it.



Spoiler's out! Credit goes to Aohige, Kaze1028 and the other guys at AP for summary, translation, etc.:



-Chapter title is "Common Interests". The ministory involves Caribou running into another pirate at the port.

-Smoker calls for a spare ship to pick up the marines from Punk Hazard. He also arrests Brownbeard and his crew, and tells them they can heal the poison while in their custody. Brownbeard complies, saying that he'd rather go to jail then remain as Caesar's servant....


-Meanwhile, Brooke drops Kinemon, whose petrified shell cracks open..... revealing that the samurai is safe and sound! He himself is confused as to how he survived the poison, but he's finally able to reunite with Momonosuke, who is now able to change to his human form. However, the younger samurai is nude, so his father creates some clothes for him with his DF power.


-Chopper encounters Law, who managed to heal Mocha and the other children by operating on them with his powers. However, he says they still require long-term treatment in order to be fully healed. Tashigi then arrives and says the marines will take care of the kids from this point onwards. It turns out that Nami asked them that favor, and notes that Tashigi reminds her of her foster mother, Bellemere.


-Sanji cooks up a feast for everybody, using one of the recipes he learned at okama island. The samurai, children and marines also join in on the meal. During the feast, Smoker's men tell him that they've learned how to cure Caesar's poison from the scientist himself, and are ready to save their petrified comrades. Smoker is then curious about Law's alliance with Luffy, asking why he didn't finish them off. We then flash back to Law's proposition to Luffy.....


-Luffy asks which emperor Law plans to topple, and he answers that it's Kaidou of 100 Beasts. Luffy agrees to the deal, as long as Shanks is not the first target. He himself also plans to topple ALL of the emperors eventually...!!!!!


Spoiler:





Hah. I freaking called Kaidou being Law's target. And the "Hundred Beasts" nickname most definitely indicates that he's the only with the beastman army. Oh man, I can't wait for that guy's intro.....



Anyways, looks like there's no antibody like I predicted, but at least I was right about Law helping Chopper heal the kids. Though I do also wonder how Kinemon turned out all right. Anyway, things seem to be wrapping up, but we still can't forget about Dofla and that other mystery dude making their way to the island. I can easily see one (or both) of them crashing their little celebration.....

So a bit of a wrap up chapter then?

Nothing about the figure out on the ocean yet?
I'm thinking it's Aokiji and his sled on the ice. Maybe he'll intercept Doflamingo.

Alittle surprised Tashigi of all people would bring up Bellemere... but I guess it can't be helped seeing as Bellemere WAS a Marine. Maybe she was a pretty famous Marine.... or, seeing as I'd assume Tashigi would've also been a child at the time Bellemere was a Marine, she was the reason Tashigi became a Marine...? Probably wrong on that~


Alittle surprised we didn't get any mention of Baby 5 and the gang, Doflamingo, OR the mysterious figure.... figure I'll just have to wait for the chapter itself~

What in the world are you talking about?

Tashigi didn't bring up Bellemere, Nami did.
The way Tashigi is a strong female marine who cares for children reminded Nami of her mother.

Hello.. this is my first time writing/replying to a post

Luffy wanted to take down Shanks first but didnt have a choice since he will eventually take them all down.. EPIC!

Nice chapter.. but DD and the mysterious shadow guy still not shown.

Ah the afterparty, a staple of One Piece. Still with Doflamingo and that mysterious fellow on the way to Punk Hazard, they probably won't be celebrating much longer. It's interesting seeing Marines and Pirates mingle at a party together, I think this may be the first time ever actually.

I'm not really sure how Kinemon survived getting smashed to bits though. A side-effect from Law's ability perhaps?

And it's good to see that Luffy isn't at all hesitant about taking down Shanks. He's raring to take down all of the Yonkou. It's just like Luffy to say something like that. And hey, Law's target is indeed Kaidou. I hope we get to see the fellow in all his glory soon. Judging from the epithet, he's definitely the one who commissioned the army of smiles.

Really nice character interaction chapter. The arc's finally winding down now.

No, that's wrong. Luffy didn't want to take on Shanks first, and he's ok with Kaidou because of it.

Mangapanda is notorious for bad translation.

Yeah I'm waiting for a better translation. Still it was a fun chapter. Golden moment between Law and Luffy, they really work well together.

Damn you Oda...making us wait another week to find out who the mystery figure is and what will happen when don-flamingo shows up.

I guess its a one piece tradition to have the celebratory victory party....unique seeing marines in the mix though.

Law's face when luffy totally trolls him about partying....awesome.

So the Yonkou they'll be going after is Kaidou, huh... Well, as Luffy said, anybody is fine so long as it's not Shanks, though he does plan to take down Shanks eventually. That's something he'll want to do alone, however.

I'm confused about Kinemon's miraculous recovery, was it Law who healed him?

It isn't really miraculous. Being hardened doesn't kill people, it just stops you from running away from the gas. Brook went and got him out right away so he wasn't really exposed to it much.

Didn't expect Momonosuke to change back into his human form like that. Probably the shock of seeing his father made him do that. He doesn't have his sword on him wonder what happened to it? He looks like Ryuma Jr with the scarf and all.


Everybody thought Big Mom was going to be the Yonkou but it turned out to be Kaidou. This Arc isn't over yet Doflamingo and the mysterious guy hasn't shown up. I thought by now we would see the Brokers but it's not their time yet.

Yup, I also called Kaido being the emperor doing business with Doflamingo. Sweetness. This also pretty much confirms that Kaido is a villain.

Mini-story: Who did Caribou encounter? Possibly one of the older Super Novas?

Main Story: Didn't expect Kinemon to survive the poison nor Momonosuke to return to human form. I somehow knew it wasn't Big Mam to have that army of beasts. As to why Kaidou has the beast army, we'll probably find out soon enough.
