One Piece 587

What a puzzling cover page. Den Den Mushi require watering, apparently.

Oda can draw such perfectly ugly people when the situation calls for it.

Bluejam is an interesting case within the world of One Piece. We’ve become used to treating pirates as de facto “good guys” and regarding the World Government as the true evil, but every once in a while, a pirate like Bluejam comes along that reminds us that the people of this world are rather sensible for considering pirates evil. Bluejam is hardly the first case of this happening, but it’s refreshing to see someone like him now and again.

Ace used Haki. Wow.

Dadan! I was wondering where she’d been all this time.

It’s such a weird feeling to see ‘death flags’ popping up left and right for characters we know survive this flashback.

An explosion and a path? Dragon, likely. 15 pages in, I was hoping to have seen more of him. Any of him, really.

There he is. It was Ivankov after all. Although… there has not yet been confirmation that Ivankov is not Luffy’s mom…

Kuma?! Whoa. Also, I guarantee at least one of those silhouettes is someone notable. Particularly, the silhouette with the sword in front of Kuma, or the other hulking mass beside him.

Sabo! I am unbelievably happy he lives. Surely, he will tie us back to the present. Expect a reunion between Sabo and Luffy soon. I anticipate brief commiseration of Ace’s death, followed by Sabo cheering up Luffy enough to continue his journey and meet up with the crew.

Final Flash: We’re almost done with this flashback, and it’s been well worth the time spent. Fantastic.
