Okay, holiday break's over! Credit goes to AP's Redon for the info:

-Chapter title is "Okobore, the Town of Leftovers". The ministory shifts focus to another member of the grand pirate fleet, who seems to be Bellamy.

-Otama is given the medicine and is quickly recovering. Meanwhile, Okiku is treating Zoro's wounds. Interestingly, the young lady is quite a bit taller than the previous chapter let on.... as she's nearly three meters tall (or roughly around 9 feet tall in non-metric units)! Back to Tama, Otsuru tries to get her to eat some shiruko, but the girl refuses due to lacking money. When Tsuru threatens to throw out the dish if she won't eat it, Tama changes her mind, and is soon filled with tears after eating the tasty treat.

-We then learn a bit of background info on the Kouzuki clan: 20 years ago, they were the rulers of Wano! In fact, there was once a castle belonging to the clan on a nearby mountain range, but it's gone now. The late Kouzuki Oden made a plantation and provided the residents of the Kuri province with delicious food. However, upon his passing, the plantation was taken over by the shogun Orochi, and now the residents are forced to purchase ingredients of far inferior quality from him. Furthermore, as the government officials have taken over the former Kouzuki territory, the less fortunate villagers relocated to Okobore, as "leftovers" who were deemed unnecessary by the new regime! As Tsuru continues her story, an assassin aims an arrow at her, then fires! Luckily, Zoro blocks the projectile with his swords! The assailant turns out to be one of the Gifters (Kaidou's men, remember), who has the powers of a bat-type SMILE! In batman (or maybe manbat?) form, his hearing ability is greatly increased, and he was eavesdropping on Tsuru's story. He's decided to execute her for speaking badly of the shogun, and shoots more arrows at her! Zoro blocks them all, but while everyone is dealing with the bat Gifter, another one, who has the ability of a gazelle-type SMILE, suddenly kidnaps Tama!!!

-Okiku grabs a katana and pursues Tama's captor, with Luffy and Zoro joining her. The gazelle Gifter is heading towards the Bakura district, which is not only the government officials' territory, but the stronghold of Hawkins and two other headliners, known as Holdem and Speed. The three are awaiting there along with 30 other SMILE users!!! On his way there, the gazelle man contacts Holdem, who says Tama will prove useful as she tamed the baboon. During the chase, Luffy asks Kiku who exactly she is, and she answers that she is a samurai....!!!

-Meanwhile, Trafalgar Law receives word from Bepo about Luffy's group charging towards the stronghold. This news displeases him, and he says they need to be stopped before they cause any more trouble.....!!!!



So.... time to get the "Kiku for nakama" bandwagon rolling?

I hope Sanji's group are reunited somehow. We still got no words for them not to mention not a single mention happened at Wano when Luffy's rescue team is on Whole Cake Island.

I didn't think Okiku would be a samurai! Three meters tall, too! Oda seemed to have put some effort into her design so I should have figured she would be more important than she appeared to be. If she had been a kunoichi rather than a samurai, I totally would have wanted her to join. As a samurai, her fighting style will probably be too similar to Zoro's. But maybe she has a DF that would make her sword skills unique, like Brook.

And nice to see some SMILE users. A batman, to boot!

Luffy won't stop until he gets Tama back, so maybe a little clash between him and Law will be on the menu next week?

Sure wish Luffy wasn’t separated from the Sanji retrieval team (really getting annoyed with him not being with Nami) of course in hindsight Luffy’s clumsiness can’t be helped from prevention. 😓

At any rate I wonder what Law plans to do after knowing the mess Luffy and Zoro made?

Luffy already spent plenty of time with Nami in the previous arc. Nothing wrong with having him spend time with Zoro now, who we haven't seen in years. Gotta rotate the cast.

Okay, summary's updated! Looks like the ministory is focusing on Bellamy now....

Anyway, turns out we've learned of more enemy leaders aside from Hawkins! I wonder if Holdem and Speed are the other two Disasters? From his silhouette, Holdem even seems to be a Zoan (or SMILE) user, possibly a lion-type....

You know, that leftover thing sounds like Luffy's home village in how they were forced to gather what the people in the city dumped to make a living. This is probably hitting some buttons for him.

Was Tsuru glaring at Zoro's katana because she recognized it or just that he saved her?

Did Kiku grab the katana Luffy brought or was that her own?

Don't know about the first question, but about the second, Luffy still has Nidai Kitestsu so she took her own.

What brought on the Marvel and DC Universes that you want Oda to be involved?

You see how the batman goes will be more interesting if the batman works at the night same as batman from DC that works under the shadow.

Update:

Looks like even media are talking about Batman version of One Piece.

Where does the Marvel universe fit into what you are talking about? You mentioned both Marvel and DC in the same sentence.

Franky the Iron Man. Hopefully i can see a Hulkbuster version of One Piece to deal with Kaidou, maybe Kaidoubuster will do.
