Yo, guys! Well, as I mentioned in the last thread, we've got early spoilers due to a holiday leak! Here's what we've got so far, courtesy of AP's Redon:

-Chapter title is "Itching". Splash features Kid.

-We first focus on the Scabbards. Izou is worried about Kiku's missing arm, but she merely brushes it off as an "itch". Soon, Kinemon announces that, due to the enemy's superior numbers, it would be wiser for them to split up and assist their allies. He alone wants to go rescue Momo, but eventually agrees to bring along Kiku when she voices her intention to finish off Kanjurou once and for all. After the Scabbards split up, Nekomamushi meets up with Shishilian, who informs him of Pedro's death. He also tells him his murderer is on this very island, so Neko joins the minks to hunt him down....

-Back to Momo's group, they're hiding in the attic. Yamato, like Kinemon, also believes traveling as a group is disadvantageous, as they could get spotted by the Marys (Kaidou's surveillance cyborgs, remember). Thus, she decides to split from them, using a Momo dummy as a decoy.... but the other two can tell she still wants to fight. Before leaving, Yamato asks for an update on Luffy's situation, and Momo answers that he currently senses just two "voices" on the rooftop. After Yamato's departure, Momo decides to check out his father's journal....

-Meanwhile, Sanji beats down some scrubs while carrying a wounded Zoro. We learn through a brief flashback that, during his search for Momo, he ran into Law, who had Zoro and Zeus with him. Zeus runs away after Sanji asks him about Nami, and Law tells him that he himself will go after Big Mom. He also notes that Zoro broke about 20-30 bones in his body(!!!) fighting the emperors. After Law leaves, the cook treats the swordsman's wounds as best he can (making him look like he's on a crucifix, heh), and learns from him that Luffy's still fighting Kaidou.... but both are confident he'll win thanks to his new discovery. Back in the present, Sanji meets up with Izou and Kawamatsu, who tell him that Kinemon will save Momo, so the cook's aid is not necessary. Zoro, who's still busy recovering, suggests they head to the live floor and help the people there, instead.

-Meanwhile, Ulti intends to get some payback on Big Mom for thrashing Page One! Nami tries to side with both enemies, but they don't fall for it, heh. Ulti then proceeds to attack Komachiyo, and follows that up by slapping Tama! Naturally, Linlin gets further incensed that someone dared to attack her friend in her presence, but the one to strike a blow on the dino-girl is.... Nami!!! Usopp tries telling her to escape, but the navigator refuses. Like Big Mom, she too can't stand to see a child getting harmed, and intends to take down Ulti herself....!!!!!

Big Mom is going to outright give Zeus to Nami. Not like she has a use for him anymore anyway.

Looks like we'll have a comedy relief chapter this week and not much else.
Let's hope the jokes are hitting good.

Okay, summary updated! Looks like the chapter will be a bit shorter this week (15 pages instead of the usual 17). As already noted, it's practically confirmed at this point that Zeus will become a permanent upgrade for Nami. Speaking of, I find it incredibly amusing how she tried to take advantage of BM/Ulti like that, heh. Also, Kinemon and Kiku vs. Kanjurou confirmed, it seems. Maybe the Scabbards' less than perfect conditions will ensure that the rematch won't get offscreened this time around. And on a somewhat related note, the wounded Zoro's suggestion of going to the live floor pretty much guarantees he and Sanji will face King and Queen. I guess Chopper and Marco can fix him up well enough to take on the all-stars, then....?

Hmm... will Big Mom give Zeus to Nami after the battle against Ulti? Or if not give, then just "allow" her to keep Zeus? Guess we'll see how it turns out.

So it's pretty much confirmed Sanji will fight either Queen or King. I guess the same goes for Zoro. The problem is that will leave Marco without an opponent (Nekomamushi is calling dibs on Perospero), unless he goes after Big Mom. It's more likely he'll stay on the live floor and remain in a support role. He was already starting to get exhausted last time we saw him, and if Perospero decided to join the party, he should be on his last legs.

Zoro sustains an almost fatal wound, probably almost equal to what he received at Thriller Bark. Probably the injury can be sustained by both Chopper's medicine capabilities and Marco's healing flame. Though I'm aware the effect may not last long since Marco already hints during his activity at Shirohige's homeland that the patient is not allowed to do hefty activities.

Is the way Sanji is carrying Zoro around a reference to Trigun?

I can see why you'd think so, but I doubt it. It's pretty rare for Oda to reference other manga, he usually sticks to movies.

Nami landing a hit on Ulti was the main highlight for me in this chapter.

So suddenly Sanji is Wolfwood now?!

Anyways, don't really have much to add outside of my comment on the spoilers. I did notice something particularly interesting, though: When Ulti starts charging at Big Mom, it looks like her face is unmasked for one panel:

^I'm not sure if that's an error on Oda's part or not (and if so, it'll most likely get fixed in the volume release), but I think it's an amusing detail, all the same.

With more Minks going after Perospero based on second hand stories, Carrot should grow up in character by accepting the truth and save the candyman from being killed.

It definitely is a Trigun homage. I don't know why anyone would think otherwise if they're familiar with Trigun. The Zoro reveal had me laughing

I noticed that too and had to make sure it was Ulti. Kind of a weird error since her mask is so prominent.

Nami vs Ulti has been great so far. I hope she beats her without any more help. Well, Zeus would be fine

That's never going to happen. He's going to get his ass kicked and then Oda will reveal Pedro actually survived.

They know it was a self-sacrifice, Shishilian said so in this very chapter, they Minks just don't care. Their friend in dead and the person who drove Pedro to make the ultimate decision is within their reach.
