If it comes to actually caring about the fruit, I also hope Franky does something unique with it rather than any of the crew eating the fruit. (Personally, I do not want Luffy to have two fruit powers.)

What a chapter! Mingo feels like a young luffy who took the wrong path (EVIL).

Ace fruit ability, this is a another twist plot that needs to be known. How did Mingo get it, did he found it OR go through Ace death body like Black Beard did to White Beard?

Law + Luffy crew = moe reaction in anime terms. Everyone loves his reaction to the crazy crew, me included.

Hmm not sure what to say about Law crew, I think introducing them and fighting along side Luffy Crew will take up screen time... I want more One Piece crew OR maybe baby5 time ^_^

Awesome chapter with lots of information. Bonny is shown reading the news, wonder when she will get involved in the story again, her reactions in the past were never explained so still curious about that.

Luffy is being typical Luffy again, going off at Dofla on the den den mushi and then imagining delicious meat at Dofla's remark. To be honest I'm not sure he would really care about the Mera Mera fruit. It does however spark discussion about who's going to be the new logia user. Knowing Luffy, he might just give it away to a non-crew member he likes.

Anyway, it seems that when Law told Smoker about going to Green Bit that it was a diversion after all. He sure is a crafty one. Still didn't stop him from going along with the crew's pace who changed the topic to breakfast, that was hilarious.

It's a shame Law's crew won't be getting involved yet, would've been great to see them fighting alongside the Strawhats on Dressrosa. I wonder why Law is keeping them out of the action for now.

You don't see Luffy giving his HAT to random strangers (Nami is not random) do you? What do you think he would do with a memento of his dead brother?

If a ship were combined with a devil fruit, would it float or sink in water?

I guess the mera mera fruit is a memento of sorts, but is it really meaningful? Ace didn't even have the powers of the fruit for the vast majority of the time Ace and Luffy were together, so why would Luffy care about something he has no reason to even really associate with Ace?

I don't think anyone mentioned it, but the obvious choice for the Mera Mera no Mi is Zoro's sword. Didn't he mention after the timeskip in one of those random conversations that he wanted a fire sword.

Speaking lf Bonney, what's up with her? Wasn't she captured by Akainu? She escape or something?

Quite an epic chapter of revelations. At the end of that chapter, I think that's the start of the Dressrosa arc.

With the mera mera no mi... My guess is that Luffy will get it and give it to Sabo if it indeed turns out to be alive. Who better to carry on Ace's legacy?

Also, for the unknown Schikibukai... My guess would be Marco. He didn't take Whitebeard's place as Yonkou and we have not heard of him since. I can't help but imagine a scenerio in which after whitebeard's fall, his crew suffered greatly. Every enemy whitebeard along with Blackbeard would quickly eat up their territory, and the marines do not fear Marco the way they feared Whitebeard. In the end, despite his obvious hatred for the world government, to protect what remained of the crew he joined as a schikibukai to atleast great rid of the pressure from the marines. The story of a man who has fallen low.

Though granted, it does feel a bit more likely that they would simply allow themselves to be absorbed into Shank's crew, if they were indeed suffering that much from whitebeard's loss

Speaking of which; I can't help but think that Kid and his alliance are taking aim at Red Hair. Luffy's already got himself destined to face down 3 of the yonkou; might aswell add a few supernova's to the list of guys he's got to beat up.

lol.... I'm already seeing the fruit speculation going wild.... just like I predicted on the first page.

Just so it could sink like a rock as soon as they set off for their next adventure? Yeah, REAL clever use for that fruit, huh?



Putting that aside, I noticed quite a few people are questioning why Dofla thinks Luffy would care about his brother's fruit. Honestly, I don't see the confusion here: He only assumes that Luffy would care. It's not like he's as familiar with Luffy as us readers are. He probably just thinks that he would see his dead brother's fruit as a great object of sentimental value. I also agree that he's most likely far off the mark with that assumption, but again, it's not like he knows Luffy all that well in the first place.....


Also, awesome to see that Dofla's crew are themed around playing cards. So Dofla himself is "Joker", that slimy logia guy is "club" and Diamante is obviously "diamond". I suppose someone else will take Law's place as the "heart", and we've yet to be introduced to the "spade" character. I wonder if there will also be a king and queen, as well (Dofla is joker, so I guess that excludes him from being king, but imagine if the loli were the queen! ).

As interesting as that sounds, I highly doubt it. Like BDK mentioned earlier, the new warlord is most likely the guy who was mentioned in Film Z (the guy who killed the titular admiral's family, in addition to cutting off his arm). At the very least, we know that person is also a DF user, but there was no indication that he was affiliated with Whitebeard in any way (if he were, I'd already have assumed him to be Chameleone, the enemy pirate Oda created for the OP stage show last year). But at the very least, I'd definitely bet that the new warlord is a new character altogether.....


Speaking of warlords, I wonder how long it'll be before Pirate God Buggy makes his grand re-entrance?




As far as the (possible) new admiral Fujitora goes, his name is supposed to translate to "purple tiger", correct? If memory serves me right, purple is sometimes associated with wind/air, so it's possible that he may be our long-overdue wind logia, if that's the case.....

oh I just realized BRANNEW was calling akainu as "admiral" instead of "fleet-admiral"

did he pass up his promotion after that life and death battle against kuzan?

ah and that Trevor guy reminds me of this guy from shirokuma cafe

what is Apoo doing there
Haha that does look a lot like Apoo! Maybe a twin

The Luffyisms in this chapter are a bit exaggerated, it reminds me of the bloody nose Sanji build-up. Maybe Luffy will be defeated with meat in Dressrosa..

Really like to see Doflamingo cool and collected. This is going to be quite a showdown. Chess between Doflamingo and Law on top of a trampoline Luffy will bounce on.

Uh..... no, he IS the fleet admiral. I assume you're going by the Mangapanda translation? Never, EVER rely on those guys for an accurate script. Ever. I strongly suggest reading Mangarule's version instead. Much more accurate and reliable.



BTW, I forgot to mention it earlier, but the fact that we pretty much have full confirmation of Absalom's involvement in the underworld pretty much does guarantee that we'll be seeing Moria again soon enough (makes sense too, what with all the recent build-up Kaidou had). I wonder where he's hanging out now? My guess is that his headquarters is somewhere in Kaidou's territory, and seeing as we've gotten some vague hints that the emperor in question is involved with Wano some way, well.....



And speaking of Kaidou's territory, I'm gonna make a wild guess at a twist in Caribou's story: That old lady? She'll turn out to be one of Kaidou's officers. Just you wait.

Just a small correction here. The mystery shichibukai is only known to have cut off Zephyr's arm; it was another pirate that killed his family long before that.

-----

Akainu seems to be sporting a new suit underneath his marine coat. Judging by it being "white" in the manga, he's probably no longer wearing a dark red coat, but a lighter colour coat instead. And seeing as how we only saw one side of his face, is it far-fetched to say that he suffered some permanent damage to his face as a result of his 10 day battle with Aokiji? One thing's certain: there's no way he got out of that battle without any permanent injuries.

I really cannot see how Luffy would care much about the fruit...I mean, like it was said before the Ace that Luffy knew best, the Ace he grew up with didn't even have a fruit power, he only got it later. Sure it's the same fruit Ace had but it's just a Devil Fruit power...I seriously cannot see how the Luffy we know would logically care so much about a simple Devil Fruit that just happened to be the same his brother ate.
