One Piece 818:After 818 chapters, our first clue to get to Raftel!

One Piece 818

Welcome back One Piece fans, and welcome to another exciting if not one of the most important chapters possibly in One Piece history! With my new schedule I can now do the blogs on time, and without further ado! Let’s do review!

Positives:

Where to start with this freaking amazing chapter. First lets have a shout-out to Oda for not totally teasing us throughout the entire chapter! I love how he set up two possible routes to get excited for! One is Big Mom’s tea party, and we all want to go and see Sanji and Jimbei, and also want to see Daddy Vinsmoke, and see what the hell Big Mom is up too. This arc would have the possibility of madness because we have no idea what will go right, or what will go wrong at the tea party. Plus Sanji’s backstory will be further expounded on. Get to see Jimbei’s poneglyph, and hopefully get to see a little bit of Big Mom and her crew’s dynamic. So many possibilities alone you can’t help but be excited for the Tea Par….well hello Wanokuni! This arc has just as many possibilities as you have Kaidou, and his crews dynamic. The Samurai’s plot. A possible Mink vs Samurai war. Huge reveals relative to the history of the world, and new secrets to Raftel. Some Zoro development. So many things going on that I am excited for both arcs! Now back to the chapter I’m surprised that Momo’s father is so important. I knew being a lord was going to give this man some power, but having direct ties to the poneglyphs, and being apart of Roger’s crew? How amazing was this guy? Shogun and Kaidou formed an alliance?  Why? When? What does Wano have to gain from Kaidou and vice versa? Finally my favorite part about this chapter was the reveal that the 4 road poneglyphs will lead you to the One Piece! For years we have all been wondering where the hell is One Piece, and what is stopping people from getting to it? Well now we know that you need 4 road poneglyph to get to the island that everyone wants to get to. To make matters worse, Kaidou, and Big Mom each have their own poneglyph. So that means in order to get to Raftel, our heros will have to face both Big Mom and Kaidou sometime soon just to get the hints. Even though if they get the stones, other pirates will be going after the SH’s. To make matters even better we do not know where the 4th one is! Does the World Government have it? Does some secret organization have it like Germa 66, and that is why they are aligning themselves with Big Mom? This chapter answered many questions, but it also raised so many. This chapter was only made better by the happinest of Luffy that his goal has a clear path insight for him. We care about the Mink, Sanji, the Samurai, so all future plot holes that are opened up we care about!

Negatives:

I wish that Robin was the one that gave us most of this information since she just got done decoding it. Maybe next time since we have the basic information needed!

 

I give this chapter a 9/10! Excellent! The only thing that would make this chapter better if there was some kind of big ass feat performed.Then it would have been a perfect 10/10. This chapter have characterization, world building, plot moving. Everything you want in a series especially a series as beloved as One Piece. Until next time!

One Piece 812: Marriage: Fate worse than Death

One Piece 812

Welcome back, for the first chapter of the year for us One Piece fans! It’s the year of Sanji, and we start out the year learning about his birth families name. The Vinsmoke family is going to be the name we’ll be looking at for most of the year. For Sanji didn’t have a full name for the past 18 years of his character along with some of the other SH’s. It is time to start delving into his character, but before that lets look into this chapter!

 

Positives:

This chapter did an excellent job showcasing the standings of the supernovas. Especially a supernova like Capone, who didn’t have much of a fan-base before this chapter. Him backstabbing a yonkou crew member pretty much keeps supporting the fact that the supernovas are dangerous. They are the worse generation because they are openly not afraid to go against the higher ups. The power is unique, and it’ll be interesting how Capone can use it in one on one opponents.  Also got to give props to Pekoms for being an interesting character.  The chapter really gets a good rating because of Capone, and the tension gave but,

Negatives:

All the SH’s have show to be able to dodge bullets, and if anything Sanji is closer to the level of his peers who were dodging lightning back in preskip. So it doesn’t make much sense to me that he didn’t just blitz all of Capone’s men with guns. While it was cool for Capone’s character, it didn’t do much justice for the characters who with already established knowledge make guns a no go. It would make more sense in a Law and Doflamingo situation were Law was already beat up, or Whitebeard since he was already sick, but a healthy Sanji could take a bullet or two. Also a little Dehype for Pekoms, he was the one that humbled Caribou, yet he couldn’t use CoO to dodge some bullets? Hell casually he was dodging and reflecting them from Caribou. Even if it’s from behind, if he has at least a decent amount of Haki he should be able to dodge. CoO just makes it hard for this series sometimes.

 

Overrall I thought this chapter was a great way to start the year of Sanji. I predict next chapter Sanji tries to fight out of Capones castle, but can’t escape, and sheds a little light on his past. Also Capone needs to keep at it because because like the rest of the Nova’s he keeps giving the rookies a good name. Here is my rating. 7/10 great chapter. Could use some fix ups though.
