Well, well, well.... we've got ourselves a nice early spoiler! Not much is known so far, but hey! Check out these sweet pics:



Spoiler:



BTW, about Zoro's scar, Oda admits that he made an error in the colorspread and had intended for the left eye to be scarred all along. Well, we all make mistakes, right.....?


Man.... I'm loving Franky's cyborg gorilla look right now. Anyways, will update the post once the full summary cpmes out.....


UPDATE: Okay, summary's here:


-Chapter title is "The Nine Pirates". It seems that Luffy's bounty has been raised past the 400 million mark. He fights against his impostor, who shoots at him with his gun. Luffy uses Mantra to dodge the bullets, and beats him with armor Haki. It also looks like he has a flashback about Hancock giving him his disguise, and she tells him that she won't say goodbye when he leaves.


-Franky meets up with Robin and shows off his new weapons, along with the Sunny. Meanwhile Chopper, who's still oblivious to the fakes, decides to rescue the faux Robin. We then see Zoro, who mistakenly wandered onto a ship that's about to depart for Merman Island. However, the swordsman slices the whole thing in half before he gets far. It also seems that he may be blind in his left eye, after all.....



-It's revealed that Bartholomew Kuma has been acting strange after losing his humanity, which is noticed by the marines and Sentoumaru. Meanwhile, the fake Luffy gathers his forces at the 46 grove, and the marines have the pacifistas assault that area. It also seems that the entire Straw-Hat crew is on the verge of reuniting.....



Neato, so it looks like Luffy's got a bounty raise after all (though I kinda expected it to be higher). Interesting that his "doppelganger" managed to survive an assault from him, which could imply that he is a bit on the strong side. Zoro cutting a ship in half sounds pretty cool (looks like he's channeling Mihawk, after all), and the bit about Kuma is quite interesting, as well. Perhaps he's having an internal struggle, with his humanity trying to resurface again.....?



Well, I certainly can't wait for the full chapter now!

Personally, I love how the bits of Franky's legs that are still left are hairy, but the new Cyborg parts are smooth. There's just something very funny about that...

That being said, I don't like his arms. Hopefully they are replaceable (what with the vast majority of his body being cybernetic now), or they extensions, with his real arms underneath. (I'm still upset by the missing hair though...)

Seriously though, Franky is definetly the one with the most drastic changes to his design, but that'd make sense since he was practiclly destroyed in that explosion. =p

Interesting that Oda made an error, but even if it's a different eye it still doesn't change the fact he might be missing it.

Looking forward to more details.~

Personally, I love the arms precisely because they look so silly! But I also agree with the notion that they're probably interchangable.



As for Zoro..... I'm actually kinda disappointed that he hasn't lost his arm. If he had, he would have been another step closer to becoming a shonen Guts.

No, it means Zoro gained a Sharingan.

Franky's Popeye arms were already extreme (and comical) enough, he didn't need 7 foot long arms (larger than his actual body). When I look at Franky now, I just have pity for his destroyed body.

Still, I find it comical that he attached nipples to his cybernetic chest. Now that's dedication...

You're looking at the glass half empty. I'm lookin gat it half-full. He didn't lose his eye, he gained a new one, a Sharingan one at that .

(And yes, I am joking around with you.)

Ah yea I'm gonna miss the hair as well, it was a suuuuppppaa look
Well at least he is still in trunks only

I wonder if he still works on 3 bottles of coke or has had an upgrade in that department as well but I'm guessing he should have.
With the hair we would know Franky is without juice so without it I guess it signifies that he has a better power source?

Just when you thought Zoro couldn't get more bad ass looking he gets a scar on his left eye, true mark of any bad ass swordmans
Reason why I don't think Mihawk is a true bad ass swordmans, cool yea but not bad ass.

It's going to take me a while to get used to Franky's new look. I'm not really liking the fact he looks more like a machine than a man.

He gained Mihawk's hawkeye (actually a rinnegan). You heard it here first.

Well Franky looks very inflexible right now and may have some trouble moving in & out of the ship unless he replaces the doors with some real huge gates

As for Zoro, I would say Hawkeye made a cyclops out of him. From now on he's called Cyclops Zoro

So Hawkeye Mihawk vs. Cyclops Zoro, which one sounds more badass?

From other spoiler pics, looks like fake!Luffy is going to come out of his confrontation with real!Luffy just fine.

Kizaru really must hold a grudge if he's on the scene this fast.

Much thanks to MarvelB for the early spoiler!

My, my, Franky, what big shoulders you have!

I agree with James, interchangeable arms'd be nice.
OH! If his arms turn out to function like a Swiss army knife, I'd be delighted!!

I'm expecting Kizaru to come at them completely serious(hopefully), and the entire crew to fight him off as a display of their increase in strength and a sort of redemption after the whole Kuma incident.

Btw, something I remembered from last chapter that I don't know if anyone picked it up as well. Zorro was the first one to the island. Does that mean he overcame his fantasic ability to become lost down a one way street?
