Hey guys! The break is over so it's business as usual! Credit goes to Redon from AP for this summary:


Quote:
- Cavendish blames audiences for helping Rebecca but now audiences love him so much. D Block starts.
- ​Zoro runs with Wicca. Wicca talks about ♧Trebol, ♢Diamante and ♤Pica the 3 Doflamingo´s subordinates. And then they meet Sanji and ​Kinnemon. ​Violet shows up and says that Thousand Sunny has been seized by Jora and it's heading for Green Bit.
- Brook cheats Jora as he is her friend. ​Jora gives back to Brook his cane and violin. At this moment Brook beats Jora. Finally they recover to normal ​appearance.
- ​In Green Bit. Law is defeated on the ground. ​Doflamingo gets Caesar's heart.
- ​800 years ago 19 nations' royal families moved to Mariejois and created the World Government except Nefertari family. Now those 19 royal families' descendants are the Celestial Dragons.
- The 19 nations chose their new king and new royal family. Dressrosa's new royal family is Riku king's family and its original royal family is Donquixote Family.

End of chapter.


Now this is very interesting. So we finally get a bit of info on the WG's origins. And it's especially interesting to learn that Vivi's family was involved in that event. Also, Dofla's family being the former rulers of Dressrosa instantly explains the dwarf king's comment about his people's war against the Donquixote family starting 900 years ago.....



As far as the rest goes, it's nice to know that Jora is beaten, but Nami's group is gonna be screwed if they run into Dofla or Fujitora at Green Bit (especially since Law's just been defeated). Also neat that we finally got the name of the spade guy. Now when will we actually SEE him?

All in all, sounds like an awesome chapter. Can't wait for the full release.

The main highlight for this chapter is Brook defeating Jora and restoring his group back to normal. Though the origin of the World Government was interesting too.

Soooo this means the Law is now going to die. But seeing how Brook and co have regained the Sunny they could now go and save Law which looks like it would happen.

Great to see that Brook has another victory under his belt. Law never stood a chance against Doflamingo, so his defeat is no surprise and was expected. What intrigues me is how the Riku King's family replaced the Donquixote family for representation of Dressrosa.

So Donquixote family is a world noble family? Well, it was strongly hinted, so not too surprising.

But I wonder though, what Doflamingo's position in his family is. Why is he "only" a Shichibukai?
He could have the same (or even better) protection, if he was known as celestial dragon. Did he get expelled? Interesting indeed.

^My guess is that Dofla probably pulled a Sabo and simply decided to abandon the lifestyle of a noble. Why? Well, that's anyone's guess. It definitely seems that he's been living a "commoner's" life for a long time, though. I mean, Oda's SBS drawing of him as a kid even seems to indicate that much.

The question is not about the lifestyle. It's obvious, that he isn't living like a world noble.

I wonder more about the title: Why does he only posses the lesser title of a 'Shichibukai'?
In case he parted on good terms with the rest of his family, there would be no need to abandon his title as 'celestial dragon'. With this title he can do anything he does now and even more.
But if he parted on bad terms, why even give him protection at all?


Was he already Shichibukai, when he took over the kingdom? It would be interessting to know, since when Doflamingo is active as Shichibukai. Could it be possible, that this title was specially created for him by the WG?

^Well, so far the most plausible theory that jumps to my mind is that Dofla is a bastard child of a noble. And.... I guess the noble side of the family wouldn't accept him into Mariejois because he's just a plain douche instead of an inbred douche, lol.



Anyway, Aohige posted a summary of the raw. Turns out that Cavendish defended Rebecca against the jeering crowd, interestingly enough (though the moment kinda got ruined due to him enjoying all the attention he got, heh). Meanwhile, Wicca explains that Dofla's 3 officers (Diamante, Trebol, Pica) took down the former Riku military all by themselves during the rebellion a decade ago (nice to see these guys finally get some more hype, at least). As far as Brooke vs. Jora goes, it turns out he managed to put down her guard due to him being a fellow artist (music artist in this case, naturally). It was actually pretty awesome seeing him take her out!



And finally.... it turns out that it's Dofla himself who explains the story of the WG's origins to Law and Fujitora (the latter not doing anything BTW, merely sitting nearby). I find it a little odd that Dofla is willing to tell his family history to an admiral after that trolling stunt he pulled on the marines, but whatevs......

. I don't think so because Boa Hancock has been a shichibukia before Doflamingo joined.. Dofla = 10 years of shichibukia, Boa= 12 years of shichibukia

Oh, nearly forgot to mention the ministory! So yeah, it turns out that Caribou is wreaking more havoc by swallowing up Kaidou's weapons factory with his swamp powers. Well, if beating Scotch wasn't enough to anger the emperor, destroying his property sure as hell would.

Well I guess Dofla figured he can't hide it anymore after pulling that newspaper stunt, Akainu would probably found out after talking to the Gorosie and Law himself already figured that Dofla has to be a noble or something so Dofla is just saving them their time by telling em now.

Cabbage is the man. Would definitely cheer for him, A++.

Slightly disappointing that Law basically got whacked offscreen, but I suppose the exact mechanics of Fujitora and Dofla's abilities have to be kept under wraps until the Strawhats actually face them head-on.

What chapter did they mention, that Doffy joined 10 years ago?

Though it still could be possible. Maybe they first created the title and then he waited a few years to not raise suspicion.


I liked this chapter. Hope this pace keeps going on.

i wonder what Doflamingo's plan is because remember how Kuzan warned that whatever Dofla is trying to do could destroy the marines that Akainu is trying to build?

I'm guessing you met Akainu? I would be very curious to see his reaction, I wonder if Akainu will stand up to the World Nobles, possibly causing a rift between Marines and World Government? I'm almost hoping to see Admiral Fuji turn on DF.

Cavendish does know how to win a crowd over and his house totally suit him. I would ship Him and Rebecca together. More info on the CD's was also good but I would have like to know the reason why Alabasta kingdom decided not to join the other 19 CD's. Correct me if I'm wrong, So the original 20 kingdoms from 800 years ago all gather in the middle and created the WG and then all moved to another place except Alabasta. Where they then created 19 new royal family's for their kingdom's that they have left and then 10 year ago Dofla came back to his family ex-kingdom and reclaimed it as his own..

Cabbage is a pretty nice guy after all. He could have been friends with Luffy if he didn't enjoy attention so much.

Nah, you got the later part a bit wrong.
After the creation of the WG, 19 of the 20 kings moved into Mariejois with their families, abandoning their kingdoms. Only the Nefertari refused to leave their kingdom, and stayed in Alabasta as the ruling family.
The other 19 nations, now kingless, appointed new royals to rule their land.

The linage of the original kings who moved into Mariejois later came to be known as the Celestial Dragons.
