Mangaka: Eiichiro Oda Title:The Shocking Incident At Coral Hill Rating: 6/10
Synopsis: Did you miss One Piece last week?? 😀 I didn’t……The last few chapters have been rather disappointing but alas! we see some modicum of improvement with this week’s installment. The chapter kicks off with some lachrymose behaviour from the giant king triton/santa claus hybrid (Neptune) after Decken leaves the palace on a piece of coral to flyyy! to Princess Shirahoshi’s side… (he wants to wed her, bed her and probably use his Mato Mato No Jutsu to throw random sharp objects at her for fun o.O) The palace residents are shocked and angry at the revelation that Hodi Jones was the mastermind behind all of the mayhem at Fishman Town. Hodi states his intentions for the trillionth time but this time my hatred for him was somewhat mollified when he said, “As a child I witnessed the unreasonable oppression of my fishman brethren by humans…” (poor thing) But then again, he kiiind of reminds me of the constantly menstruating Sasuke (Naruto)…I hate Sasuke (even tho he’s gorgeous).
Moving on, there’s some semi-important babble about Arlong… bla bla bla…and then, Hodi places his webbed hand onto the large walls of the palace which results in instant destruction!! (well..it wasn’t exactly instant…read the chapter!) Water begins to flood the palace and all hell breaks loose! (I’m exaggerating >.<) Zorro (who has a dangerously seeexxy Mihawk-like expression) releases his one sword style, Disaster Harbour Bird, but then…! (we no like spoilers – read it!) Amidst all the mayhem we get some comical action from Sogeking! Now fully submerged in the water, Zorro faces his strongest opponent, Hodi Jones [♪ dun dun dun duuun! ♪] Meanwhile, Luffy encounters Chopper and Sanji as well has Hacchi who is on the ground all patched up but still incapacitated. Then, to everyone’s shock, poor Megalo spits out Shirahoshi who manages to blush despite being covered in disgusting shark saliva o.O…
Jumbo sized booby princess is now near to Sanji! How will he fare in the next chapter?? Will we finally get some decent underwater fighting with Zorro vs Hodi?? Stay tuned y’all… (Be sure to drop a comment ppl!)
Best Character(s): Zorro, Usopp and Hodi for making the chapter more lively/funny/dramatic etc (I smiled a bit when Chopper started freaking out about Sanji when the mermaid princess arrived)
Worst Character: Uhm…no one was particularly horrible this week… Although I appreciated the action/fighting Hodi incited, I did not appreciate his boring harangue. For Gollum’s sake we know you hate humans and want to take over….get on with it already 😐
Likes: The chapter was a bit better than last week. Next week should be even betta! Can’t wait for Decken to encounter Luffy! That should be fun…The suspense continues to build! Yooosh!
Dislikes: See Worst Character.

mu§e: 7/10 – We’re beginning to warm up to the action. Ussop got a little shining moment that was funny. Hodi is a real jackass, I want Zoro to hurry up and cut him into sushi (yumm!!) and poor Sanji, smh…DON’T TURN AROUND!
§tiggles: 7.5/10 – Good set up for next week.
Anime: (Episode 489) IT’S RED HAIRED SHANKS!! He continues to dominate this episode and tells everyone that they have to do what he says (I wanna know the exact reasons why he had such influence over Sengoku). Have I ever mentioned that Shanks always looks so ruggedly sexy? mu§e wants him….(I’m not a fan of the beastly leg hairs tho lol) I wonder if he has a lady friend…what about that bar-woman back in Luffy’s hometown? Any thoughts? Anyway, The Red Haired Pirates looked sooo cool! Death to Blackbeard! That abominable decendant of Uruk-hai (Lord of The Rings) However, to my extreme delight, there was about 10 seconds of screentime for my hubby! I know I’ve already had pics of him in previous posts but I can’t help it….I always fall for the quiet, dangerous and mysterious types *sigh…Talk about pure, undiluted sex appeal…♥ (lol sorry guys xD)
