Time for some double coverage! Yep, that’s right. I am here to make up for me not covering neither the new Chapter of the Manga nor the new Episode of the Anime last week. So, long story short, here I go!
Chapter 700, titled “His Pace” (or “At his own Pace”), a new milestone in the History of the Manga. The News sweep over the World!
Doflamingo resigned both being Shichibukai and King of Dressrosa. This led to a huge impact in the New World. All the trade routes with Doflamingo have been disrupted. Deliveries of weapons to countries in war are no more. Oh look! It’s Boney-chwaaan~! eatin’ pizza. :-* And Jinbei!
A lot of information is being leeked out by a reporter called “Absa”. Does that name sound familiar? Thriller Bark? A ship similar to Thriller Bark is clearly recognised in the Manga. Is that guy Absalon? He can become invisible after all, so gathering information is easy for him.
Nonetheless, the whole World now knows about the Alliance of the “Worst Generation”. Trafalgar Law & Monkey D. Luffy forming one of the Alliances, while Scratchman Apoo, Basil Hawkins and Eustass “Captain” Kid the other one.
Law Hates bread. *Shocked~!!!*
Who is the mysterious 7th Shichibukai? Well, it’s great to have at least Buggy the Clown confirmed as one. I am so happy ‘bout that. ^^
Hang on… what did you just say, Doflamingo? Whose Devil Fruit is that? ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? Mera Mera no mi, Portgas D. Ace’s devil fruit.
This Chapter was awesome. Truly, give Oda 10 medals or 100.
Now, Episode 586 of the Anime.
Sanji in Nami’s Body. Clearly, the Best part of Episode 586, by far.
So, to start it of, the Animation was great in this one. It covered chapter 661 of the Manga.
All in all, maybe the most disappointing thing in this Episode were that the Voices changed together with their hearts. :( I was expecting something like that episode in Fairy Tail, when they exchanged bodies. This was a great opportunity for the Voice Actors too, to do some silly imitations of the other charcters. Imagine Franky!Chopper being all “Suuuupeeeerrr~!” or Sanji!Nami with a deep voice, Nami!Franky going all “Kyaaa~!” and Chopper!Sanji “I became a human!”. How cool would that be?
Nevermind though that. It was a great chapter. I liked it.
Next week, there will be no new Episode due to somekind of Marathon that airs on Fuji TV, the local network that airs One Piece too. But it might be a good thing too. Maybe, we will get a more packed episode the week after.
(Yay, long post.)
