So mostly flashbacks and then at the end the Soldier goes back to human? Guess we won't see Usopp in this chapter.

Actually, there was a Chinese spoiler that apparently also mentioned that both Franky AND Usopp got taken down this chapter, but I'm not 100% sure on this one. Either way, I think that the "Operation SOP has succeeded" line is enough to indicate that Usopp was able to knock out Sugar, say what you will about his overall performance this arc.

That's an interesting turn of events actually... All the released toys will be able to pick up the slack while Usopp and Franky are down. Which will allow them to get back in action at a later point, if necessary. They'll need to either escape or get a rescue though. With Franky in the custody of the marines that might be tricky.

Will they even show how Usopp managed to complete his objective?

They will definitely show it, probably not in this chapter though.

Well... actually this may be "filler space". I noticed that it seems that Oda tries to make the "stretching" of the anime more easily lately, like with the tournement (i.e. provide a setting without getting too much into the actual events).

Oh I guess the colloseum battle will be cancelled... I mean the Chaos from toys most likely turning back and the returning memories will cause quite the havoc and there are toys inbetween the audience as well.

And Robin will turn back probably as well, so she gets to fight Trebol possibly.

Aohige's summary is out, which clarifies a lot of stuff:


-Continuing from the flashback, Kyros racks up 3000 victories over a 9-year period. Interestingly, one of his opponents was the "mystery" gladiator, Ricky.

-Scarlet (his future wife) doesn't approve of him at first, but she eventually softens up to him after he rescues her from pirates. However, since the public wouldn't approve of a princess marrying a murderer, she goes as far as to FAKE HER OWN DEATH so she can stay with Kyros (aaaawwwww).

-On the night Doflamingo's coup took place, Kyros confronts the warlord, but ends up getting trapped in sea stone chains. However, he CUTS HIS OWN LEG OFF, and manages to save King Riku. Unfortunately, this is the point where Sugar turns him into a toy. Shortly after, during his attempt to rescue Scarlet, he bares witness to her execution by Diamante's hands. This is the point where the flashback ends....


-Back in the present, Kyros (aka Thunder Soldier) plans to make a sneak attack on Doflamingo. However, Gladius is on the hunt for the intruders, as he's discovered that the Doflamingo he met before was a fake. We then shift to the coliseum, where it seems that Sabo is tricking Burgess into destroying the arena. At the same time, Diamante is taunting Rebecca even further, confessing that he killed her mother.....

-Outside the factory, Franky has indeed been taken down by the combined might of the marines and Dofla officers. Nonetheless, he still has faith in Usopp. Underground, Usopp has had a number done on him by Trebol, having been beaten to the point of unconsciousness and trapped in the sticky goo. However, the dwarves and toys alike are still cheering for him (Cavendish even says he won't be Luffy's enemy anymore if he can be rescued, heh). Sugar then decides to finish off the liar by feeding him the very "poisoned" grape that was meant to be fed to her. However..... the spicy grape triggers such an EXTREME in Usopp that it in turn causes Sugar to freak out..... and fall unconscious!



Well..... at least this proves that the SOP operation was successful! Sadly, I'm sure those same bitter folks won't be too happy about Sugar being defeated by a gag, though......

^So he taught both his father-in-law AND daughter how to fight.... that sure is interesting.

Though I'm personally more amused by the fact that his missing leg was the result of him pulling a Zeff.

So we'll have to wait and see... chapter should be out in the next few hours. Will Sugar have an Enel reaction face? That would mean that she is the first person who gets knocked out by the Enel reaction face.

And Ussop wins by pure luck again it seems... if he just once says "Fukou-da" it will mean instant death.

oh yea! I was correct! Now it's confirmed! Sugar is the first person that passed out from doing "Enel's reaction face".

...or it will be downplayed next chapter with Sugar saying "damn that was close" or something like that, but I doubt that will happen.

Actually I think the foaming at her mouth looks more like the typical "passed out from King's Haki" reaction.
Wouldn't it be awesome if Usopp had it, but couldn't use it, because he doesn't believe in himself?
