One Piece 578

Beautiful color spread. I require a poster.

Very happy to see some more Buddha action. I would like to know a little more about the specifics of Sengoku’s abilities, though.

Aokiji’s apology doesn’t seem sarcastic. He’s easily the best admiral.

Jinbei is increasingly amazing.


Betting lines are open: Buggy 12/1 to accidentally become Pirate King.

A submarine with lanterns and a familiar logo. Only one man is this cool. Oh yes.

Final Flash: No coincidence that the awesome started flying around once the focus turned away from Blackbeard. We need a little break from him. How about those last two pages?

    I was impressed with this chapter, when Crocodile had his little heroic moment it occurred to me what an excellent crew member he’d make. Really glad to see we’re going to be getting more Trafalgar Law. All the rookie pirates seemed like they’d be pretty fun but Trafalgar’s character design, crew and attitude seemed the most interesting to me. It’s seeming like Blackbeard will be the “final boss” of One Piece and I’m concerned Oda might not have what it takes to make him a better villain.

      Crocodile joining would be horrible. He’s great now, but it would completely devalue the entirety of the great Arabasta arc. Practically every other villain from that arc is either good or neutral now. Also, the chemistry in the crew wouldn’t work at all, and he’s way too powerful.

      Blackbeard has been the final boss of OP since he was first introduced. That much seemed obvious. The double power thing, though, has made him much worse.

    Blackbeard seemed like more of a mid-boss to me up until he got the power to eat other powers. I mean it was always obvious Luffy was going to fight him but now he’s pretty much crowned himself emperor of the world given that he has the power to break it.
