Hence the "probably" in my post. But I'll be keeping a lookout all the same.



Anyway, I also appreciated the spread of the Dofla family's hierarchy. I also like how it kept pretty consistent with what we learned about Vergo at PH and listed him as an "elite officer" (so I guess around the same rank as Diamante/Trebol/Pica, then?). Also, as tough as Franky is, I'm not sure about him taking on all four of Diamante's men by himself..... maybe he'll get some help in the form of Luffy's group (if the toy house happens to lie on the path to the palace), or Koala, who we just saw last chapter.....

It was an ok chapter, gotta say Franky's been on fire this entire arc, can't wait till he gets an actual one on one fight with big guy's in Dof's crew.

The rest has been a set up for up coming events, UGH!!! Two week break? Just as things are about to go down

Edit;

Wonder when will get back to Sanji's plot? He's fighting against a few of Big Mom's crew.

To be honest this felt like the weakest chapter of this arc yet, including the other "build up chapters". I don't know why, but it felt too empty somehow.

I don't like that senor pink dude...

well, seems like Doflamingo would be the toughest enemy for Strawhat Pirates so far (well, they've got rid of Monet, Vergo, and got Violet on their side though)

I think the pacing in One Piece is perfect, which is why I emulate it so much even with my own comic I've been working on.

Seems Senior Pink has the "Swim Swim fruit", doubt it would actually allow him to swim in the ocean though - but like most DFs it has various & unique uses.

Well, I at least hope that we'll get a proper intro for Lao G next chapter..... he's always interested me the most out of Dofla's officers (with Gladius, Diamante, and Pica following close behind).

Baby 5 and Buffalo where already taken care of by Franky alone once, Dellinger couldn't do a thing against Bartholomeo and Jora as well as Violot are out of the picture as enemies, too.


In regards to the bold, I wouldn't put Dellinger's inability to penetrate the barrier against him. Really, Barto's power seems almost like an absolute defense at this point (after all, remember how he blocked that king's punch earlier in the tournament..... the punch that can supposedly KO a yonkou). At the very least, I'd say there's a good chance that Dellinger is a step above the Baby 5/Buffalo combo and Jora since Diamante's team was specifically labeled as the "combat" team....

You think so? To me, it sounded like Diamante's men are the most powerful squad, as they are the big stars of the colosseum and being labelled as Combat Team.


@Kanon: I also thought about the possibility of Franky using Kairoseki in a similar way to Smoker. That would be awesome, especially since the Monster Trio wouldn't be the only ones capable of handling Logias!

Yeah, Franky using sea stone weapons would actually be pretty neat. And it's certainly not impossible for that huge, bulky body of his to be hiding something of that sort....

In my opinion haki is not the only way, example maybe franky can make his fist made from kairoseki, nami can produce rain that use seawater that weaken df users, and many more. . But thats just my theory if except monster trio have to fighting againts logia users. .
So my main idead is that haki is not the only way to fight. .

Rain wouldn't do any good, as it isn't standing water...

Then how about salt that use in moria chapter, its just a bit of salt from seawater, but it can make moria ability in zombie lost.. moreover if nami clima tact use water from seawater, it will weaken df users in an instant..

The salt was inserted into the Zombies, not rained on them. They were purified of their control by Moria, which wasn't a very strong link (more to say, a specific demerit of the Kage Kage no Mi). I doubt, any of the known DF users would be weakened by salt.
If so, Vegapunk or other Marine Scientists would have already built weapons to exploit that weakness.

Furthermore, Luffy was eating so much stuff in the last 700 chapters and I doubt those were all salt-free

That's what I meant with "they lose their strenght, not their power".
Luffy still had the rubber power to stretch every part of his body, but he didn't have the strength to do so by himself.

Though seastone handcuffs always bothered me. Technically, someone beeing near Luffy should be able to simply remove the handcuffs, since Luffys arms are still rubber and can just be deformed to fit through.

Ah sorry, I misunderstood.
But you're right about the handcuffs

Well, this chapter seemed kinda bland. But then, anything would seem bland after the previous 2 chapters. It was good to see the composition of the Donquixote family though, and I also found it interesting how Fujitora seems reluctant to participate in this conflict (I think he's been like that from the start, but so far has not neglected his duty).

So who will be fighting the guards at the other entrances? Unless they move inside the toyhouse rather than stay outside (which would make sense, why stay there when there are already intruders).

Tho the kairoseki is a good idea I doubt you will ever see a good guy have it as a main weapon because it would just be anti climactic. Usopp used seastone cuffs on ceaser because the were around but I mean how boring would one piece be if franky had k.stone fists.

picture franky just walking up to an opponent and just putting his hand on them and bang fight over.

remember the move z:

Spoiler for Z movie:


so i highly doubt we will ever see a straw hat using k.stone as a main weapon.


All that being said:


if one piece was a real world not based on plot but like real then they all should except the df users because they can't unless on a weapon like smokers jute.

sanji should have it built into his shoes
usuopp should have it tipped on the end of his sling shot and a few chunks in reserve for firing
nami should have it in her staff
franky should have it in his fists

As far as I remember "Seastone" is a very rare material.
