Baby 5 also referenced the heart seat back on punk hazard, saying that Doflamingo was saving it for him. Its clear that law was indeed a former subordinate of Doflaimingo; from references to his past encounters with Vergo, to mention of his betrayal against Doflamingo. The question however remains as to what happened 13 years ago, which seems to be the inspiration to all of this.

Speaking of which; that would probably be one of the obvious reasons why law is not dead. He's not gonna kick the bucket without us first finding out his past and why he did all this.

I think he means that Kora was the former heart seat.

Kora-san is probably a mistranslation, it's probably supposed to be "Corazon" meaning heart in Spanish or some shit.

Zoro never had a decent fight in the new world yet, and both him and Kin'emon are the only SH's close enough to save Law. I bet Zoro's the first one to react and attack Doflamingo in the next chapter.

Bad news, no OP till 2nd or 3rd week of January
The popular theory going on is- Kora san is a "D" like Luffy and he/she is the person law said hes fighting for..... This will also explain why Law randomly went and save luffy from Marinford because he already knew another "D" who he respected but Dofla did something to him/her...

Kora-san = Corazon. It's a pun.

Remember, Doflamingo was keeping the Heart seat for Law until his betrayal.

Judging from Fujitora's expression and the convenient forgetfulness on the marines' parts, wouldn't it be sweet if the guy they're after is Doflamingo? I'm up for an epic "double-cross" on Fujitora's part.

Also, I'm a bit disappointed that the Zou-crew are headed back. Was looking forward to the split storyline, but... oh well.

At this point, it doesn't really make sense for Oda to have shown Law giving Nami that vivre card if they don't have to get to Zou without him. Something has to happen to him during this arc -- either he dies or is detained somewhere -- and the crew goes to Zou to inform his crew, or something like that.

So Law (after Ace, WB and Monet) could possibly be the 4th human that was shown to die outside flashbacks? If that really happened, then it would be interesting. If not it would not surprise me though, as killing characters directly in the storyline is something Oda uses rarely.

Oh, and I really hope that Monet did NOT "somehow survive". That would go too far, even for Oda.

Having Zoro fight Donfla could definitely be interesting,seeing that Law could defend against Donfla's strings using his sword.

Good chapter. The Strawhats are burning for some justice, and Law's story is quickly reaching its apex. Can't wait to see what happens next.

It's not a mistranslation.
All that is written is "Kora-san."
Spoiler for Big image:


I think it's fair to extrapolate though that this could be the first "Corazon" seat given Law's affinity for hearts and the fact that he's been running around the place with the dang word on the back of his coat for 20 chapters though.

It's also interesting that he uses -san when he either uses -ya or the name alone for everyone else. Vergo was pissy about that too, maybe he beat Law up because he only respected Kora or something

That's..... a very left field assumption. Considering the guy is practically about to pass out, what makes you think he has the energy left to pull off any more fancy room stunts anyway, lol? As was already pointed out, it's definitely a person's name he's saying there (and yeah, I guess I'm with everyone else who thinks that the person is named after the Spanish word for heart).....

-san is an honorific, like Mr. in English.

It's not the name of a technique. Hes not going to be calling a technique by an honorific, especially not when hes about to pass out.

Nope. Nen was introduced around chapter 50, which should have been about the time of the millenium.
On the other hand, Haki was explained approximately three years ago. HxH has, in my eyes, one of the best fighting systems ever (very strategical, with nearly no unreasonable power ups by the good guys).
Just wondering, Wasn't the first time that we saw Haki the scene where Shanks scares off the sea king while saving kid luffy and losing his arm in the proccess.

That said, I agree that HxH has one of the best battle/fighting system ever.

As explained in my post before the previous one, this didn't teach us anything about the mechanics of that system.
Back then, it could have also been some sort of killing intent. Or are you suggesting, we should have deciphered from Shank's scary look, that he used something called Conqueror's Haki, which is a very rare type of a supernatural power, that is able to counter Logias

Not a bad chapter at all. I am glad that Law's story is coming to a close. Hopefully Oda will give Zoro a worthy enemy. Right now the way things are looking it might happen. Zoro Vs. Daflamingo or Admiral Fujitori. I am also kinda of curious to see how Rebecca will do too. She might surprise people.

...Too bad it totally rips off Jojo, though.

Anyway, now that Sanji decided to head back, I wonder who he's gonna take on? He already got a taste of Dofla's strength, but I'd still say he'll fare much better against one of his officers. If we assume that Luffy has no choice but to face Diamante at the arena, that would leave Trebol and Pica (note that I'm only counting the TOP officers here, not the lower-ranked underlings like Lao G/Gladius/etc.). Personally, I'd think it's more likely that Sanji would take on Trebol due to his connection to Violet. And.... I dunno, maybe Franky or Zoro (maybe even both) can take on Pica.....

I know Togashi is a fan of Jojo and based at least two characters (one being Hisoka, the other one I don't remember) on some Jojo-chars.
This fact got me interested in it, but honestly, I quit after Jojo's son got to the Nazis in Mexico (Was it Mexico?), because I was totally bored.

Those hyper-muscled designs, Dio always miraculously surviving, funny character growths, which seemed shallow and, what got on my nerves the most: the fights had to be explained by the fighting characters because it seemed like the drawings couldn't tell, what was going on.
About the fighting system: Perhaps there is a deeper introduction later on, but all I remember was this ripple thingy, which most times, didn't make any sense to me.

Right now, I'm searching for something similar to OP, HxH, Psyren, Breaker, Holyland, Shamo, Berserk, Basilisk, Death Note, the early Bloody Monday or Veritas to kill my spare time with.
You seem to be a great fan of the series (Jojo) and perhaps it hits the fan later on, so would you mind telling me, if it gets better? It's perhaps best, to use PM, so we don't bother the others

Sanji taking on Trebol seems valid. But I have problems imagining that slug fighting at all
