I actually have this idea that this snake princess is so ugly, so she brainwashed her people that beauty is the same as strength (considering most of them never has/seen any male to appreciate their physical appearance), just so she can be called as the most beautiful female there.

Yeah i agree with that statement that the pirate empress might be a really strong and ugly woman because in the fifth page of the chapter it says beauty equates to strength!Since there aren't any men on the island the amazons don't know what real beauty is!Of course the pirate empress may still be really beautiful apart from powerful!

I was thinking that maybe she could be one of the four kings that rule this part of the Grand line. I don't think Kuma (being a Shickibukai) would sent Luffy to another Shickibukai and I think all the Shickibukai are now assembling at the prison where Ace is in because WB is going to attack it.

Ierno I just highly doubt that will happen.

The way Margaret was so easily kidnapped by Luffy and taken by Luffy might hint at her not being the complete fighting "beast" female member that some people might of hoped for. She must have some skill though, since it was implied that all Amazon women are raised to be strong. Most interesting will be the introduction of Boa Hancock, her crew and her two younger sisters. Her position and rank in the world could also show and give hints as to what has happened since Luffy and the Strawhats were seperated.

Luffy's vest was a funny part, I can already see Usopp and Chopper cracking jokes at Luffy's expense.

the only problem with the Boa Hancock is ugly theory is the fact that lola's crew seconds that beauty of hers; this well means that her beauty is a well known trait of hers. And no matter how much she says "strength = beauty" only the amazon's would believe it, the rest of the world would not think twice about it...

About Margaret, I'm not all that sure she (or any other amazon) will get asked to join. But even if she is, she might refuse anyway.

As for only girls being born, I wonder if it's something like this: women in the pirate crew sometimes get involved with men (to some degree, they might have to in order to keep their numbers up). When they get pregnant and the baby is born, they could either leave it with the father or an orphanage if it's a boy and take it along if it's a girl. Or maybe they just really mysteriously only have girls. Strong amazon genes?

After reading the chapter for the umpteenth time I was just thinking that Luffy may have corrupted all those amazons. They'll all be curious to see the kintama if they ever see a man again. Also amazing that he's more worried about being cold than being naked in front of a bunch of women. One thing I liked as well was when he was avoiding their attacks and he's bouncing around in a sitting position thinking about the vivre card. Well, can't wait to see what Boa Hancock is all about. My guess is neither Yonkou nor Shichibukai btw.

Well, the reason why the Amazons are so interested in Luffy's balls is because they think those sacks carry gold.

Kintama literally means 'gold orbs' and the Amazons seems to be interested in gold and wants to see those.

Oh my god...this would really suck MAJOR kintama...


But really: I'd hate it if she turns out to be a 'tough looking old biddy'.

Plus: I'd got a cool idea: what if Alvida eventually joins up Boa's crew? Nice idea. *shrug*.

But I was laughing out loud when I read the part about Margaret asking about the kintama just now. She NEEDS to join the mugiwara crew!!!!

I say we take a hostage and demand Margaret as a new crew member!! Kidnap the Shonen Jump CEO!!!

mob: "YYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH! !!"

Can't wait to see Sanji's island. Or Nami's. I know Robin's island will be a creativ, interesting place as well. More calm, but definitely worth the wait.

GO ODA!!!!

If Luffy beats the queen of the island (for whatever reason), does that mean he becomes the ruler of the amazons?

Let's hope not for his sake, he still need to find his crew and get back on the adventure in hand.

Maybe the Pirate Empress will help Luffy. She is a pirate and probably understands the importance of nakama.

There's something about the Kuja that I find strange. Aphelandra is wearing a hat that's somewhat similar to the helmets that the conquistidors wear. There's a little girl in the Kuja that wears the same hat as Aphelandra. So what's the deal?

Chapter 516 spoiler pics and summaries are out - some interesting revelations!

I'll refrain from posting them here, and wait for the 516 thread to be created.
