Sanji was just great. I'm surprised he didn't achieve escape velocity with that nosebleed.

The allies were as expected. I kinda figured Heracles would be more active rather than let the beetles do the work. Perona got tall over the timeskip, but she kept her fashion sense. Rayleigh is awesome as always.

Here comes Fishmen Island!

Sanji was hilarious, wonder what he'd do if he knew Hancock's feelings Fancy reunion and everything, but isn't their next trip probably the most dangerous too, sailing underwater with half the crew being hammers?

I doubt it her reason for attacking was that they were in her ships path. plus if they wanted to remove her they woulda did it after the war and not wait 2 years

haha that was great!

I liked Ray's little flashback at the training, seeing him beat Luffy with a stick

Oh God I love Perona <3
Which btw she is in her ghost form?
So could that mean she is actually else where like on the Sunny?!
I can only hope so

Sanji as usual is a brilliant source of amusemnt, from the super blast off nose bleed to the turning to stone just by looking(I particularly liked this, is indeed fitting for the moment)

Looking forward to the next chapter, should be filled with SH shenanigans!

LOL, Sanji pretty much stole the chapter for me, here (his reaction to Luffy's stay at AL was pretty much exactly what I imagined it to be!). The cameos from the Straw-Hat's helpers was great too, despite the lack of Dragon (though it's understandable that he wouldn't appear yet). I'm also rather curious as to who's that rear admiral that Hancock distracted during the crew's escape.....



Well now, looks like the crew is finally on their way to their next destination! I most certainly can't wait to see Jinbei again, as well as meet new characters like the mermaid princess, (hopefully) the strongest mer-swordsman, and of course, Fisher Tiger (via flashback, obviously)!

Besides Rayleigh, the rest of the strawhats allies had no business coming to their aid. This was cheesy writing on Oda's part. Cannon fodder marines are pathetically weak to contend against the new and improved strawhats, and Oda still goes out of his way to have their allies baby sit them? Come on, now.

I'm just glad that they're finally going to Fishman Island. Plenty of interesting developments are sure to take place there.

Yeah, I didn't care too much for the gathering of guardians/caretakers, I would have much rather seen Buggy show up to try and stop the Straw Hats from entering the New World.

It would be pretty interesting if she stowed away on the ship, kind of like Robin. I thought she was a loli character, but apparently she was just young (I mean, she obviously grew up). Hanging out with all of those creeps on Thriller Bark surely had some effect on her psychology .

Poor, poor Sanji - in his mind, Luffy was chilling in Heaven (= an island full of women), while he was in Hell training .

No need to make a big deal out of it,he just didn't want to reveal their new moves so soon,it would be boring if they used their old moves,on the other hand it would suck if we saw most of their new moves used on a bunch of marines.

I was happy to see their masters/friends after a 2 years break

Seeing friends off after 2 years together = no business?

I'm sorry but I have to agree with this. Very Bleach-esque.

Whatever the case, at least the Strawhats are finally reunited and the story can pick up again. Can't wait to see how Jinbei has changed (also can't wait to find out how he can still hang around Fishman Island without the WG trying to kill him).

(Additionally, Perona is cuter than ever…)
Hancock can be explained, sort of. She was in the vicinity after dropping Luffy off. But for Perona to be there? How the hell did she get there? And assuming she was the one who originally dropped Zoro off, why didn't she leave if he was the one who arrived first? She had too long to leave. This is completely illogical. The Weatheria professors, the bird, and everything. I dislike this greatly.

Well, my take is that it's just purely illogical: I personally think that this thing you see in anime where people talk about "having faith in person X" is dumb: if you feel worried about something, and the odds are not in your favour, go help do something about it.

I'm so surprised I actually agree with this. It would have made more sense somehow.

--------------------

Don't know what to say. I just hope this doesn't become a habit for Oda. This is new, and really distasteful.

They (strawhats) were already seen off when they left their respective locations. That's enough to say farewell for the meantime. Like someone else mentioned, these allies coming to their aid puts doubt in their abilities to handle themselves. They don't need help with marine fodder, and they have enough luck as it is.

Can Perona please become part of the Straw Hats?! I want to see more of her especially in that outfit, Robin, Perona and Nami in the same room...hmm...Sanji will probably lose all the blood in his body.

Rayleigh epic as always, I was hoping to see Dragon but oh well hopefully we get to find out who the new fleet admiral is soon

Actually, I'd also welcome the possibility of Buggy confronting Luffy's crew. In fact, it's not too late for that to happen since Luffy & co. are still located in the GL's first half, and I'm sure that the future Pirate God's followers may talk him into confronting his one-time ally in order to put the super rookie in his place....


And ye gods, does Perona's appearance make me anxious to see Moria again....

I think the deal with Perona is easy to understand, she is tsun for Zoro
Thats why she stayed on the island.

Way I see it, is that the SH just don't wanna deal with the fodderines cause they just wanna set sail or theres really no real reason for us to see SH deal with them.
Sure we could see them showing off whatever moves to scare em off but I think it works better for the fodderines to be kept busy rather than the SH pointlessly fighting it out with them, unless there was a real need to.

Perona joining the crew could be a possibility. Oda did mention that the next member would have to be a former enemy and Perona was working for Gecko Moria. If anyone disagrees with this theory let them give me a beating because- "What do I know?" As for who the new fleet admiral is, I'm sure we'll find out next chapter and/or when databook green comes out next week (This coming sunday is Halloween).

We'll most likely see Hatchan and Keimi again as well.~

Though another character I'd LOVE to see return in the Fishman Island arc is Arlong, possibly mirroring a role like Crocodile had in the Impel Down and Marineford arcs.

Possibly a chance of Chew and Kuroobi popping up somewhere too as well.~

So illogical to stay behind and watch your friends leave the island and help them.
They just spend 2 years with them a longer time than the crew was together .
In fact give a reason why they should not be there , it's not like any of them have anything do right now.

It amazing really the SH did so much for each other and were together for about a year.
People that with them for 2 years should pick up and leave just like that with out seeing them leave make no sense.
Where in OP the themes are friendship and dreams.

Honestly, I wasn't really bothered by the mentors' help. I mean, the majority of them at least have the excuse of being the Straw-Hats' transport, and I'm not surprised that those guys would lend a hand one last time before saying goodbye....



...However, I admit it kind of WOULD be overkill if it were Mihawk holding off the marines instead of Perona.....
