Welcome back One Piece fans to another review of One Piece! This chapter we basically learned that Momma raises no scrubs. Without further adieu. lets review!
Really liking we are making progress of getting out of the forest. For a while I was wondering why we were taking so long wandering around in here, but now it seems we are making some headway. The tension is finally starting to build up, and it is nice to see that Luffy having to go all out is usually some of the best moments in the series. You have 3 Big Mom fighters, while Luffy’s two members are trapped. So Luffy’s going to have to take this seriously because I do not think Nami can take both Brulee, and Randolph at the same time. I like the clarification that Big Mom is Lola’s mom is finally put to rest. We may have figured it out ages ago, but it was nice to finally put that plot to rest. Quite interesting that Nami just happen to have the card in her breast pocket at this exact moment. Makes you wonder how long she has been carrying it. One of my favorite panels is when Randolph and his Crane attacked Luffy, and Randolph blamed it on his crane. Easily one of the best moments of the chapter. I am very interested to see how Luffy handles the roadblocks in his way next chapter.
While I love the beginning of every arc cause it brings many questions that are wanted to be answered, I would much appreciate if Oda didn’t throw in so many more questions, and plot lines in one chapter. It makes it convoluted, and it makes it seem messy when it comes to plot writing and it is easy to get lost. I would also appreciated if Oda would not just build the hype in one chapter, and not show it the next. While I do not think Luffy, nor Cracker will go down next chapter, I would much appreciate if some fight was shown next chapter, including a major bulk. I’m not really into power levels, but this is a shounen manga, and after the mess that was Dressrosa I think it would be in Oda’s best interest to expand a little on his fights. Cracker’s powers are interesting and since he is a supposed top 3 his development in the area is needed to further the hype for the Yonkou Crew.
Luffy and Cracker fight for a good bulk of the chapter, Luffy doesn’t make much headway, and then as he is about to go G4 the fight stops.
I rate this chapter a 7/10, really good chapter. It got a bit tedious with the the long chapters in the forest, but it is picking up speed this time! Thanks for reading!
