So after all that confusion from last week, we have some "proper" spoilers this time around! And once again, credit goes to Redon from AP forums for this summary:


Quote:
- Don Chinjao recovers from Luffy's attack and talks to Luffy. He despises Luffy very much.
- ​​​​Don Chinjao´s flashback begins. His head was pointed originally. He looks like Patrick Star from SpongeBob SquarePants.
- His family had a frozen island with a huge treasure under the ice. The ice can opened only by with his headbutts.
- Garp and Don Chinjao fought. Garp´s punch deformed Don Chinjao head, because of this he couldn´t smash the ice and get the rest of treasure.
- Back to the Present. Luffy attacks Don Chinjao with Elephant Gun. Don Chinjao does the same with his head​.
- Luffy´s attack crashes with Don Chinjao head that recovers his original form (the pointed form).
​- Luffy knocks down Don Chinjao and wins C block. Burguess uncovers Lucy´s identity.​

​End of chapter.​


LOL, so THAT'S the reason Chinjao hated Garp!? While I never dismissed it being a silly reason, I was leaning towards Garp having stolen his daughter or lover or something. Anyway, now that Luffy's "fixed" his problem, there shouldn't be any more reason for them to be enemies. Naturally, Burgess discovering Luffy's identity is unsurprising, as well. I'm pretty interested in checking out the Don's original head shape though, at least....


Also, the C-block is now over! Now that just leaves block D before we go on to the semi-finals with Dofla's officers!

Well it seems that Luffy may have fixed his head?
And I knew Burgess would figure out who Lucy really is due to the stretching ability he suddenly saw.

& Nice. One Elephant gun. It didn't seem like Luffy was using Gear 2nd.

Wasn't plastic surgery Sanji's role?

But that's all? A whole chapter for this is a little bit disappointing.

Funny that you mention this, because this basically DOES feel like Duval all over again (random dude who has a grudge against a Straw-Hat for some silly reason, problem magically gets fixed after getting knocked upside the head ). But again, I'm just glad this means that Chinjao's guaranteed to become Luffy's ally at this point.

I'm going to laugh my ass off when this whole evil scheme to trap Straw Hat completely backfires on Dofla with Luffy emerging out with an army of extremely powerful allies he gathered through out the tournament. LOL.

Yeah, we are analyzing the tournament part way to much. The participant there might very well be Luffy's temporary army for this arc as aohige said.

Yea though so, maybe these guy's will probably follow: Don Cinjao's family, Bartolomeo, Cavendis, Rebeca and the res of the tournament who share the same problems (doflamingo) or just becomes an allies because influenced by seeing Luffy fight.

Luffy will probably overthrow the Doflamingo house and take over the island as its guardian.

Seems like Luffy is claiming territories swiftly.

Mihawk did foreshadow this though.
But what would Burgess do?

It sounds like a delightful plot.
It seems like the most perfect plot if you ask me. We shall see...

I love the thought of Luffy taking over the NW one island at a time.

What should he do?
He is on the island to fight a tournament, so he will probably do nothing else. It's likely that it's his holiday anyways.
(I mentioned it a few months ago: Nobody of the fighters competing for the Mera Mera fruit could knew beforehand, that they are going to fight for a DF as price, since this info was just given less than 24 hours before, so they either came to fight a regular tournament or were on Dressrosa by chance)

And it's not like BB or his crew consider the Straw Hats as enemies or have some sort of grudge against them. IIRC BB was always kind of friendly to everyone, even to the ones he fought or killed. He just had to do what he had to do, to reach his goal.

Burgess is a fighting maniac, so I wonder what he'll do when things escalate.
Will he stick to his tournament opponents (seeking them out and trying to fight them)?
Will he join Doflamingo in crushing his enemies because they might ask him to help?
Will he just be obsessed trying to fight Luffy?
Or could he join forces with the Strawhats just for the fun of it?

He's a huge wildcard that has no real allegiance with anyone on the island and doesn't need to make a name for himself. He's at the top of pirate food chain so other then the DF he has nothing to gain on the island. Still I doubt he'll run away when he has the fruit.

BTW, something interesting to note: It was confirmed by Redon that Luffy's finisher against Don Chinjao is a new variation of the Elephant Gun called "Gomu Gomu no Thor Elephant Gun". Interestingly, the kanji for "Thor Elephant Gun" is "雷将象銃" which translates to "thunder general elephant gun", so could this mean that Luffy can now use thunder-based haki moves, in addition to fire-based ones.....!?


(Oh, and for the record, I'm already well aware that Luffy used a "Thor" move against Shiki in Strong World, but that wasn't canon, lol. )

I can see this happening... and I think I read this somewhere else too. Rush of deja vu and all that.

Nice catch on the Thor from Strong World, I totally forgot about it. I've never thought of haki as being elemental, and I don't remember fire being created with haki directly, but it'll be interesting (if a bit overreaching) when people can intrude on logia/paramecia territory. On a side note, I'm not sure if haki created the fire from this scene, but since his gear second has always been associated with heat, I assumed it wasn't the haki.

I also doubt Oda would so willingly blur the lines when he's clearly separated things to avoid any one party getting everything (cough Bleach), so unless Luffy's actually forming electricity, I expect the Thor to be in name only (or maybe, as you said, it'll create loud booms of thunder/shockwaves? no electricity involved?).



Edit: I just took a look at the scene in question and it certainly looks like a bunch of shockwaves.

Ahwell, that's finally wrapped up. Bit silly how Chinjao's head popped back up like that, but this is One Piece after all. At least he'll be happy to have his old drillhead back, seeing his reaction once he realized it should be good.

I'm guessing that D-block won't actually get to fight because of the incoming dwarf invasion force. And indeed, Burgess is one hell of a wildcard, hard to tell what he might do at that point.

As an aside, so Caribou is actually pretending to be the revolutionary Gaburu now? So he's not a total bastard anymore, at least.
