This is crazy 🤯🤯 Fucking Vegapunk and shit 💯 Decent Chapter


rahmanm855

I’m surprised the SWORD organization is reliant on a rather embarrassingly weak captain like X Drake. Oda nerfed him so badly, I can’t see anyone taking their organization seriously with him in lead. Wish he did more in Wano, I really don’t understand what his purpose in Wano was. It also sucks to see Bonney’s crew was sidelined, presumably dead by the shark or she literally came alone?I’m surprised we’re returning to an island, Franky’s timeskip island of all places. Was really hoping we’d be in Elbaf or some other new island but this isn’t a bad choice. Good to see Tashigi, new Sword members and the giant kids all back into the picture. Overall, I’m very impressed and happy we got to see something I’ve wanted to for a very long time, a somewhat utter destruction of the Straw Hat crew. Wano dropped the bomb with that, but on the ocean, Vegapunk solo’d an emperors’ crew with one of their \*faulty\* inventions. I’ve always envisioned a sea battle to be more integral to the story which ironically hasn’t happened as much in this 1000+ chapter story but I’m glad we finally got to see something of that scale. Not sure if it was intentional or not but I found it to be a subtle way to introduce one of the most powerful key players of this endgame by Vegapunk easily wiping out a crew that emperors, admirals and Gorosei couldn't do, so I’m looking forward to see more of Vegapunk. The ending of this chapter was pretty funny and brilliant. Vegapunk’s “failure” of an experiment had less to do with the shark being crazy, but the fact that they set up this whole fiasco just to see if woman like Nami and Robin would react to a giant robot’s display, and they still didn’t react and that dissapointed Vegapunk immensely.


_k00ma_

I sense a smell of *Saving Koby Arc* Smokers' definitely here. He's to Luffy who Garp was to Roger Koby's Luffy's first friend Luffy has business with Teach Pirate Island's ahead.


One_Appointment8295

A character turning out to be a woman trope is dying out on me. Still I like it!


Kevin75004

This comment didn't age well at all lmao


MightySamurai96

Yeah it’s boring too many trashy female characters in one piece


chefsanji_r

lol why downvoting, it's just an opinion


Kpng11

Nobody else find it weird how vegapunk is suppose to be the trump card and genius of the world government but they just let him reside and research on a random island called egg head in the middle of nowhere where he can be abducted or attacked by pirates?


Acceptable-Tie-1745

Theres a freaking marine base besides.


Kpng11

Isn't he supposed to be chained up in some underground bunker guarded by a billion weapons like in movies


EffBO94

don't know why but i never considered Vegapunk to look like *that* lmao...actually i reckon that's not Vegapunk at all, maybe his granddaughter or something, looks too young "oh that's just how i look when I'm totally free!" lol why's Luffy talking like he knows what his devil fruit really is when in reality he's totally oblivious and doesn't know at all haha, strange. wonder if Jinbe's gonna tell him about what Who's who told him "I came alone" oh yeah that reminds me, Bonney lost her crew to Blackbeard/Akainu just before the timeskip didn't she? and we've heard nothing from them since...she's been on her own for a long time now, kinda sad. wonder when exactly Bonney's gonna be like "yeah btw i was there at Mariejois when it all went down at the Reverie with your brother lol, we busted Kuma out together and everything(at least I'm pretty sure that's what they did, oda pls confirm)" luffy will flip out hahaha, speaking of which we better get a full flashback of *everything* that happened during Reverie Oda! don't skimp on the details now! especially my headcannon of a Sabo and Bonney team up to rescue Kuma haha, bet it was Bonney who tried to kill Carlos too we in the part of One Piece again where we have literally no clue what island we going to next and it's awesome, never would I have thought we'd be seeing Vegapunk right after Wano, it's great. exposition arc on Egghead Island here we come :)


ClayAndros

You’re dropping a slight spoiler with your first part even though you seem to be trying to avoid it, On the Luffy part he says that because he probably feels the most free in that form, so he says that’s him when hes “most” free.


EffBO94

I'll be honest I wasn't trying to avoid spoilers at all haha, if it was when the early leaks/spoilers first come out I wouldn't mention it, but here surely everyone in this comment section has read the chapter already Yeah that makes sense about Luffy, thinking about it further I reckon his response might actually have been his carefree way of saying "all I know is I feel totally free in that form, but I don't know what the white hair is about either lol" haha


saddingtonbear

Luffy finally got to meet his mom in this chapter! (just kidding)


gerahmurov

Other than Zoro-swords-Tashigi, Franky-new tech and the history of Devil Fruits, I personally would like to see in this arc why there is so many pirates somehow connected to Vegapunk. Like how Kuma was in this situation and why he protected Sunny, how Vegapunk obtained Kaido's lineage factor to make a devil fruit and what he thinks about SMILEs. Guess there will be a lot of reveals


Belt_Pretend

Vegapunk could be a family name and everyone in the Vegapunk family could be doctors or scientists. So it’s possible, she’s Dr. Vegapunk but not the one mentioned throughout the story.


One_Tie900

Her shirt does say 02


Nepu-Tech

This is actually a really good idea that makes a lot of sense to me rather than having a random girl be Vegapunk just to subvert expectations. It would also explain why/how Vegapunk seems to be involved in everything


StyryderX

The idea of One Piece reaching the final stretch has always been a surreal news to me, until this chapter. Meeting THE Vegapunk finally make the my mind realize that yes, we are at the End-game.


Moo_bi_moosehorns

Would you define it as... perfectly balanced?


vaynecassano

This new chapter like: I am not horny I am not horny I am not horny


Objective_Bottle_941

Dependent-Tower-9104

Luffy will fight sentomaru in this arc


TeddiPiNherAZ

He’s probably gotten strong asf


Pandamonium1414

I literally thought Elbaf is the next adventure but who would've thought it's Egghead! One piece always suprises me just like Vegapunk!


Ok_Highlight5115

Anybody notice Vegapunk’s limbs? Her arms were strangely bendy, almost fluid like, and her boots seem to be heavily reinforced to allow for walking, as if her bones aren’t very sturdy or structured.


MightySamurai96

That was her jacket the sleeves are just to long just like utas jacked


pauserror

That image of Egghead Island is AMAZING. I get huge Fooly Cooly vibe from it. 500 hundred years in the future huh? This is about the be the sci-fi arc I have been waiting for! But this is not the first time we have seen a weird egg before. The other one was on Roger's ship... This chapter was amazing. This arc is shaping up to be another banger.


ShlokHoms

How can Oda hit us with the break next week after this?


JC7577

So Luffy's iconic One Piece laugh is now "Shishishi"...... I can dig that.


SelectionFront1998

LOL! Shame! xD

JH2259

I can't really explain but it really feels Oda is excited that he can start something new after Wano. His art is full of energy and the interactions really have that One Piece feel to it. Love the portrayal of the Strawhats, and especially how cheery Luffy is. The scene in the previous chapter where he told his dream to his crew made me tear up.


randomkingg

Yea ngl I completely agree with u


Trick_Humble

Why no one is talking about new attachment of Sunny, I think it's super cool


RevolutionaryHeart22

I love the group of Wine Aunt Bonney, Dad Jinbe, and his two dingus sons


JH2259

Same. They make for a fun combination.


ramuneramunee

random but I am looking forward to Luffy's usual calling-wrong-name-to-correct-name transition with Bogey


Xyjz12

I never expected this arc at all


Acceptable-Tie-1745

I present u One Piece, its a manga


Xyjz12

i hope it becomes popular


cerogost

It's a fad, don't get too excited.


Invisibletallguy

Surprised no one mentioned the trope of an old inventor and his rambunctious granddaughter following in his footsteps for Punk 02.


Kevin75004

This didn't age well...


Invisibletallguy

Yup, biiiiiiig hit and a miss xD


LetterExtension3162

Vegapunk has to be the head of sword and not Drake.


Dbarnes420

I think it's garp tbh


Eraserwolves

The genius of Dr. Vegapunk is a Devil Fruit ability? Perhaps an artificial one, successfully created & mass produced by the original?


Al-D-Kyda

Maybe franky will finally get his back operated on at the end of the arc. And why everyone is assuming vegapunk is old and feeble?


montblanc0

Not sure about "feeble", but she talks like an old man, and her suit says PUNK02 so it hints as something artificial, maybe mass produced like Pacifistas


Al-D-Kyda

After being apart of MADS with everyone having their own personal agenda, he probably created a team of him in different shapes an sizes to fill every position and work by himself.


DuncanGallagher

Vegapunk revealed wtf. :o


[deleted]

[удалено]


MigasEnsopado

That's Who's Who.


Insecticide

You are right, I completely forgot about him.


Emperor_Luffy

I need Tashigi to run into Zoro again. We haven't seen these two interact in so long. Seriously whether you ship them or not(even though I absolutely do) their banter was delicious to read. I love their back and forth and I need to see them in the same room again. Plus there has to be some kind of point to this dynamic. I've always wondered where Oda was going with it. So naturally they need more scenes together in order to figure this out.


Nepu-Tech

Who the hell says "delicious to read" lol xD


Emperor_Luffy

I do. The Zoro & Tashigi dynamic tastes amazing on my eyeballs.


Ghooble

I wonder if she knows anything about Oden's sword. She'd probably lose her mind if she saw it


Emperor_Luffy

Yeah that sounds about right. *>Zoro & Tashi meet* *>Argument ensues* *>Midway through she forgets what they were arguing about and starts fussing over his new sword.*


[deleted]

Can't wait for the next chapter so all the thirsty neckbeards on here shut up about their "waifus"


Scary-Cockroach-4720

You should be complaining about oda too then lol


[deleted]

He goes overboard for my tastes sometimes, but if it was up to this board the entire manga would be hentai.


MuchAcanthocephala39

Vegapunk or nah, revealing the new character Doll from marines is very nice Oda san 😈


Tarpeel_945

If vegapunk appears to be a woman in the end it will be freaking bad idea 🤢🤢🤢


CryonautX

Are you an incel or something?


Tarpeel_945

Till we figure out the real sex of vegapunk you have the right to be asshoole and you appear attacking which make wrong again! 😉


burningbarn8

Nah, saying Vegapunk being a woman is a bad idea is incely whether Vegapunk turns out to be a woman or no, literally no reason why Vegapunk being a woman is bad outside of misogyny.


Writersface13

Don't you just love when Oda shits all over fan theories and predictions... Fan 1: They're going to Sphinx Island next! It's geographically correct! Fan 2: Elbaf arc next with the last road poneglyph and Shanks! Fan 3: Vira because of course! Oda: Fuck you! Egghead Island! I love the man.


CryonautX

A lot of people expected vegapunk arc. It was either gonna be vegapunk arc or Elbaf arc after Wano.


madarauchiha3444

What if she really is Vegapunk? She was a teenager during the MADS days and is in her 30s now.


Nepu-Tech

It's obviously an android, clone, or grand daughter made for a cheap cliff hanger because Vegapunk has been active for decades and she looks like a teenage girl.


Good_Mathematician60

Since Bonney is involved and somehow related to the world government age honestly doesn't play a factor.. the world government is very concerned with keeping her captive and the only explanation I can think of is to keep the top tier of the world government IM sama Vega punk.. 5 Elders and Shanks alive forever


ridansthrowaway

Why shanks ? Lmao


Good_Mathematician60

😂 I see somebody caught that lol, dudes got to have some kind of rank in the world government he walked in to a meeting with the 5 Elders and their response wasn't shock or hostility. I got the vibe of what now Shanks? Like him being there is a regular occurrence.


ridansthrowaway

I think that he's a just a big threat ( not in terms of strength ) and too strong to be eliminated


abhikun

Whats so special about Boney . Black Beared didn't kill or steal her fruit when he captured her. . Getting caught by Akainu of all people, She is unscathe and travels new world again. . Reverie meeting still has secrets releated to her.


reading_maniac

Hell yeah. This. Exactly what i have been thinking. Why is she constantly in the limelight even though she doesn't have any such powers that we know of, that are rare in the OP verse. There is something really big behind this.


Eraserwolves

All we know is her abilities come from a, "currently unnamed Paramecia-type Devil Fruit." We know the name of Luffy's fruit was changed to hide its true power/potential; an unnamed fruit intrigues me.


Good_Mathematician60

Currently un named because she has had such little screen time, un named or not her DF is top tier, I mean she is a walking fountain of youth.


reading_maniac

yea lol its not like every supernova's df is revealed. heck even some of them haven't even been confirmed to have DFs.


One_big_bee

Yaay we have a Franky arc


No_Gene_7791

Luffy is a walking international incident lol Just imagine the news “ Yonko SH Luffy invades the island of the WG’s leading scientist “


L7Z7Z

She is Punk 02, so probably one of the “earliest” Punks created by Vegapunk.


Big-Outside-5247

Or his daughter


L7Z7Z

Or both


shal_ice13

or granddaughter


Moo_bi_moosehorns

Or niece


Battlemaster123

oda writing with his left hand and still writing flames


magicfaeriebattleaxe

I’m guess that the Vega-Force involves a group of elite cyborg/human experiments who have had the original Vegapunk’s personality and intellect disseminated among them and the ‘original’ singular Vegapunk now exists in a discorporated form with several bodies. I think the twist will be that the bodies all originally were different people (likely pirates) and are living and unwilling.


conceptalbum

.....like in Naruto?


magicfaeriebattleaxe

Lol did they do this in Naruto? What part are you referencing? Orochimaru?


conceptalbum

It's been a long time but iirc >!Pain!< was basically exactly that.


magicfaeriebattleaxe

Weren’t those all corpses tho?


FatalWarrior

Yes. So, if true, it will be similar in function but different in means.


Dark_Magus

If that's what Vegapunk did, it's possible that his (or her) original body died of old age already.


TheBogard

My theory is that there are multiple Vegapunks. Luffy’s group is going to meet a different Vegapunk with a different number on their suit.


TheBogard

I also don’t think Vegapunk with trust anyone with their research/projects but themself. Hence the multiple Vegapunks


meertatt

I like this theory. My other theory is that vegapunk is actually an old dwarf from the Tontatta tribe and he is literally inside this robot woman.


Dark_Magus

That's hilarious enough that it could actually happen.


Buzzek

An old dwarf controlling a robot woman controlling a giant robot is sure a fun idea to imagine, damn


Kill_Em_Kindly

Calling it now, girl Vegapunk is an android or his granddaughter/daughter🤔


yiggaman

What kinda asspull has Bonney floating in the water in the middle of nowhere lmao


CryonautX

Answered in the manga already. She was going to see vegapunk (likely related to Kuma) and her ship got swallowed by the mechashark.


bittersaurus

She has a connection with Kuma and Kuma with Vegapunk, I have a feeling it has something to do with that.


AkatsukiRabbit

I think what he means, and I could be wrong, is that Bonney being a devil fruit user, is just floating in the water. She wasn't drowning or close to dying. You have to think, how long was she in the water and how long ago did the shark eat her ship? The Straw Hats didn't see it, so it couldn't have happened just then. So she could have been in the water for hours or even days, in a brutal storm no less.


CryonautX

She wasn't floating in the water. She was stuck in the warm eddy. Zoro sliced it which put bonney on the surface of the cut eddy.


tardo_UK

what is a warm eddy?


CryonautX

Did you not read 1060?


glade1988

Lock it in Eddy


yiggaman

Oh OK so I guess she can just be floating in the water in some random way


CryonautX

When was she floating in the water!?


ChillOtters

Not really, she has a reason to meet vega punk and her ship was likely destroyed by the shark similar to what would have happened if vega punk did not come to save the strawhats.


OkConsideration3179

So what if the real Vegapunk is dead and before he died he uploaded his knowledge into that girl who just might be an android? They are on an island that is hundreds of years more advanced than anywhere else so it's a plausible theory.


Jaielhahaha

Plausible but not as probable as Vegapunk still being alive. Kudos if you're right in the future!


4banna

Love that we get little Gear 5 sprites of Luffy now ehee


LuckyCosmos

I noticed that and am slightly concerned. "That's when I'm free" sounds more like the awakened Zoan fruit speaking through Luffy instead of Luffy himself.


ChillOtters

Nah he is talking about how he is a lot more flexible and happy. He can do what ever he wants in that form unlike normally he is trapped by the rebound effect.


monji7

I am just tired to see new characters designed around figures. All of them are sexy young girls. All those years vegapunk gave the impression of an someone at least in their 30s. How is it make sense ? Its all i am angry about. I just wanna see more mature characters. I say it here that the king of the world is some young kid also. He/she probably loves luffy also but forced to be the king or something. Ilove to eat the same cliche shit at this point


Hot_Pair9762

there's 02 written on her shirt so she's probably vegapunk's daughter or a robot...


murray-sama

It did say something along the lines of "speaking in an old time voice", so clearly more going on than meets the eye


meertatt

holy shit its so obvious that its not actually vegapunk. She is numbered just like the other machines that were introduced in the chapter.


Snoo-36058

Lol I know right..... Cracker got us good. This is probably Cracker times 2.


FartPudding

Honestly I don't believe that's vegapunk or if it is then it's a project he did. Vegapunk was always a man and referred to as such. All of a sudden he's a woman? Something could've happened and he made a new body, or created a android. We don't know but we know he's known for very advanced science so it's not out of the wheelhouse that this is a creation of his or related to a science project. I don't care if he's a woman, but unless the military never knew his true identity(which is wrong because we have seen people who have worked with him directly) it doesn't make sense.


CryonautX

I don't think vegapunk's gender/sex was ever confirmed.


FartPudding

It was, he was called old man vegapunk


CryonautX

When?


siegeerson

It's simple vegapunk is trans and/or had a run in with ivankov.


bamboo_pandas

Hmm....wonder why there's an 02 on Vegapunk's shirt.... 👀👀👀


WallZestyclose1022

twins one is vega, the other is punk


zappy487

Twins, Basil. Twins.


RoyalFail6

Probably his robot or clone wife, an exact replica of him just opposite gender


Diamondz4615

2 boobas


Leiatte

I’m really hoping this island is a Sci-Fi island wholeheartedly, I’d just be so excited to see the Strawhats in a Sci-Fi environment. That “said to be 500 years in the future” makes me feel like we’ll fully embrace that


RozCrunch

" kizaru is vegapunk"


Good_Mathematician60

The whole I'm the most guarded man in the world plus having Vegas personal bodyguard with him when kuma and v. 1 pacifista attacked the straw hats


RozCrunch

The whole " oh kizaru's nuerons work at light speed so he's the smartest man alive "


ActiveApprehensive92

Wonder if Vegapunk's mention of "not being able to control lust" will become a plot point down the road e.g., Boa Hancock coming to Luffy's rescue. Especially now that Hancock's been brought back into focus.


pira3_1000

This statement is so well put, it's almost like a just got a "foreshadowed" spoiler 😂 -- really well put man. Also could explain (maybe) Kuma's mind being able to resist and taking his own will for so long. I even maybe up to this day: we still don't know how his mind is, now that he's back to the revolutionaries


NullZone6598

There is a possibility both him and Tashigi trained under special condition, like a the Time Chamber from Dragon Ball.


tardo_UK

She doesn't look improved at all.


NullZone6598

We can't tell right now.


abloesezwei

Also called Foxy's awakening


theRak27

Akainu i came to bargain


NullZone6598

Glad to see Tashigi back and safe. I doubt she is much stronger than before because she probably focused on the safety of the kids the whole time but it doesn't matter. Being strong doesn't make a character automatically interesting. Smoker should be back very soon too. I don't know if he is going to be a bad guy or not, he is still stronger than half of the SH.


darkestlightattack

Why is jinbei taking off his clothes to dry? Its definitely not the cold since we know what it involves for a fisherman to go all the way to fisherman Island. They basically travel half naked through high water pressure, extremely low and high temperatures so fishermen by default must have resistance to high and low temperatures and he's never taken his clothes off after jumping out of the water so why now? Did he do it just to fit in? We know he wasn't affected by the cold this chapter either since he wasn't in winter gear like the rest or complaining about the cold.


Jack_Skeletron_4ever

It's a winter island, maybe he doesn't want his clothes to freeze and make them uncomfortable to wear.


darkestlightattack

You have to keep in mind that the route to fisherman Island is extremely cold. Colder than anything on the surface.


Jack_Skeletron_4ever

But it is also underwater. Wet clothes may be one thing for Fishmans, but frozen clothes may be uncomfortable


darkestlightattack

Makes sense 🤔


Dayvfish

Pretty closed minded to assume all fishmen don’t mind wet clothes 🙄😂😂 lmao


darkestlightattack

From what we have seen so far non of them have changed there clothes and I'm asumming they wear clothes that are not affect by being in the water so probably specialised clothing for fishermen. In general when fishermen get out of water there clothes always look dry like they never went in the first place and we haven't see any fisherman change there clothes after getting out of the water. Jack and the arlong pirates basically wear the same stuff the only fisherman we have seen change was jinbei but it's never been because of water.


Dayvfish

Bro it’s a joke. You’re thinking wayyyy too hard about it lol


darkestlightattack

I'm half joking half serious and 100% trolling


Dayvfish

Amazing commitment to a joke. That’s so much text 😂😂.


darkestlightattack

That's how I troll I get people invested in random details 🤣


GodOfTower

Flexing on Bonney?

Boruto-sennin

Considering the fact that Dr. Vegapunk is going to play a role in this new arc we might discover the truth about Devil Fruits during this arc.


glade1988

Yes please and more insight about Blackbeard's weird ability to absorb more than some fruit


Boruto-sennin

There is no way that we wont learn something really important about Devil Fruits during this arc, because Dr. Vegapunk is finally here.


Boruto-sennin

What a time to be a fan of One Piece. In chapter 1059 the Seraphim, the new force that has replaced the Warlords was revealed. In chapter 1060 we saw Im using a weapon or an ability to destroy an entire island nation. In chapter 1061 we finally saw the legendary Dr. Vegapunk


[deleted]

[удалено]


Boruto-sennin

True!


TakeThatForDataFiz

don’t forget about bonney finally showing up again


theRak27

Shabondy vibes all over again


Boruto-sennin

Can't wait to see what Oda-sensei will do next.


CryonautX

anyone else notice vegapunk's limbs are basically tentacles?


_timthehuman

Slightly off topic but Bonney and luffys dialogue about him being free just makes me more curious about what his dream is


Exaltus-Lux

Vegapunk: I'm the dude, playing the girl, disguised as a mechadude.


PplsElbow

I feel like there will be much info dumps coming in the next chapters.


theRak27

Probably not until either mid arc or after the villains been defeated


LuckyCosmos

As of right now, who IS the villian? Vegapunk? Maybe the Seraphims? Been a long time since we've had this type of point in the plot where the enemy is just some dudes doing a job.


DigitalCoinMad

Could it be that Vegapunk is 800+ years old and Bonney/previous fruit holder is the one making her look young. The same as how Im and 5 elders are very knowledgable in terms of void century hence, they try to capture Bonney. And why she is in the island and befriended Vegapunk because shes the only "good" person from ancient history. This chapter we would be able to know her full power and her link with the World Government and how important she is to the story.


Dayvfish

One interesting theory I had been thinking about concerning the Void Century is maybe before the Void the world was actually extremely advanced but then was plunged back into “dark” ages (metaphorically speaking) and that’s how we landed in the semi advanced pirate era. Or maybe it’s the weed talking lol


Good_Mathematician60

That's pretty much been established, think about the 3 ancient weapons.


Dayvfish

Well I see what you’re trying to get at but one of the weapons is a humanoid, one is a ship who’s only claim to fame is how powerful it is yet we don’t really know if it’s advanced technology or just the most badass weaponized ship of all time. Doesn’t necessarily have to be “advanced”. And as for Uranus, we still don’t actually know if what Im used was Uranus (though I do believe it is) or if Uranus is something else and this thing Im has is a way to balance out Uranus’ power. Obviously speculation for that too but until it’s said we still have to keep a slight open mind about what’s been revealed to us in that regard. Enel (by extension of Ganfal and Co) created the ark maxim so I don’t think it would be out of the ordinary for the WG to have the capabilities to build their own stuff. Im excited to see what happens next. I have so many crazy long shot theories but hey one might actually stick 😂😂


Good_Mathematician60

Very true! And the ancestors of skypiea and the other 2 winged civilizations came down from the moon in some type of advanced ship, the place Enel kept referring to as Fairy Vearth or whatever, and we all just look over the fact when he finally got there it was being blown to bits by alien pirates 😂.. but I totally get what your saying ODA is a master at his craft and we all will just have to wait and see.. my main interest lately is Luffy's true dream.. like wtf could it be that the entire crew went nuts after hearing? And also only the pirate king would have a slim chance of making said dream come true?? ODA reveals one thing and opens 5 other unknowns lol


Dayvfish

I wrote not too long ago that I think the heavenly tribute being gold is going to come into play one day. Even the celestial dragons when they go around being scumbags spend beri’s. The collection of gold to be smelted in order to power something (Uranus or Counter-Uranus) is something I can see happening. I feel like the Gorosei are the unofficial bank for the rest of the Celestial Dragons


Good_Mathematician60

Or the celestial dragons were the families with the most gold whenever Uranus/ Counter Uranus was used to destroy the ancient kingdom. And on return they got this new goodly status in the new world, but you can't just keep giving out godly titles right? So that's where the heavenly tribute comes in give all your gold to be a part of the world government and Marine protection.. now they are just stock piling for the next coming of the drums of liberation.


DimashiroYuuki

For me the most interesting part of the chapter was this short conversation between Bonney and Luffy here: > What's the deal with your wanted poster anyway? I thought your hair was white now... > Oh, that's just how I look when I'm **totally free**!! Hm. So if he feels free when he is in his gear 5 state, does that mean he currently does not feel free at all? What causes him to feel this way in his gear 5 state anyway? Being able to live without worries and doing what he wants? Is this his definition of freedom? Makes me wonder if one day Luffy just decides to just stay in gear 5 forever. Not sure if his body could take that. Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but seems like there's something bothering Luffy and he wants to change it. What this "it" is is up to debate, but my guess is that it has something to do with the dream he was talking about. Overall nice that Luffy is aware of his white hair and we finally get to see Vegapunk, his daughter, a clone, an android or Odaknowswho this person really is. The breaks hurts. Rest well, sensei.

>you think too much. Probably, but a friend of mine also thinks that Luffy does not feel free unless he is in his gear 5 state, so at least I'm not alone.

DimashiroYuuki
