It’s been about 2 weeks of now One Piece while Eiichiro Oda, creator of what is probably the best manga ever created has been recovering from a tonsil operation. As a huge fan I’d like to welcome Oda-san back. Today’s chapter was bit slow in the development side of things, and maybe that has to do with the bad translation that I was reading, however it all came together in the end and I may just re-read it later today from a better translation.
So what was this week’s OP about? It continues from the previous chapter with Luffy and companions getting past Peca and making their way ever so closer to the palace, and that immanent fight between Luffy and Doflamingo, a fight I believe he shall not fight alone, but in fact as a part of a duo between him and Law. As a chapter following a break from the manga it seeks to catch the reader up as to the location and activity of each of the major characters. I do wish the time spent on the king was less though. I mean he just got his ass saved by pirates and yet he’s still questioning the trust his daughter puts in them? (What an arsehole).
As for the rest of the characters I was a bit confused for the most part of it about each character’s position on the map, mainly because I couldn’t tell why Fujitora and his marine army had not stopped the coliseum army. He’s a bloody Admiral and they’re basically all second rate pirates. It should be a no-brainer that he’s stop them all then just move on to the straws, but no the bastard was just planted in that spot and that alone had me second guessing and re-reading the pages to make sure this was all right and not a translation blunder. I’m happy to say it was not that the moment that I saw that it was in fact Sabo that hindered him and his men from advancing, in a rather casual looking manner might I add, I was over joyed. It’s the moments like these that make One Piece that amazing, splendid, amazingly splendid read that it is.
What else I read today:
So with One Piece chapter 750 ending on an amazing high moment I just can’t wait to read what happens next for the straws….. I know I’ve left out details in this chapter, like Franky and Zoro, so tell me what you though of their endeavours and how your other manga was read so far today. Leave it in the comments section below and remember have a wonderful Manga Day.
