Mangaka: Eiichiro Oda Title:Of Sea Forest Rating: 7/10
Synopsis: This week’s One Piece picks up right where it left off with Zorro showing Hodi that he is a BOSS by slicing him up using his improved sword techniques. The fishmen marvel at this saying, “How can this be, a human moving faster than a fishman in the water?” Well well, you foolish fictitious sea creatures, allow me to educate you: Zorro (3d2y) + MIHAWK (♥) = apocalyptic mass destruction/Armageddon/too-much-sexiness-for-you-to-handle etc etc 😐 So! water continues to flood the castle and King Neptune surprises us all by grabbing the water and…!! (read the chap!) Then, some fool brings Hodi his drugs and he turns all dangerous and scary looking. Neptune then calls Megalo a hoe (believe the tl’s note all you want but Neptune is one dirty mouthed bastard lool) Megalo saves the King despite the scurrility (the Straw Hat Crew are clinging onto his beard for dear life – how unsightly) but Hodi Jones stops the giant merking with one webbed hand! MUST……………SURVIVE!! *Chokes*
We’re then taken to Luffy and company in the pretty Sea Forest where they meet Suuuper Furrraankyy! Woo! 😀 They also finally meet the ex- Shichibukai, Jinbe! *chirping crickets* Jinbe then shows us his ultimate sexy face when he sees Princess Shirahoshi lol Sanji to Shirahoshi: Alas, I am but a poor incompetent painter…!! For the stroke of my brush is incapable of replicating your radiance ♥ Thus my canvas shall never be enough to capture your beauty ♥ lol! What would you do/say if a guy/girl said that to you? xD Moving on, Luffy’s spidey sense tingles and he stops Decken’s thousandth attempt at killing Shirahoshi. Can’t he just move on? I’m sure there are some weird mermaids out there who wouldn’t mind Decken. I mean, if Hugh Hefner can marry a 24 year old then maybe Decken might have some luck? Then again, Hefner has super duper magic powers of the colour green that Decken probably doesn’t have. How the heck would he mate with Shirahoshi anyway? o.O Even if she married him, he’d end up killing her with all her damn crying…The chapter ends with discussions about partying, the fall of the Ryuuguu Palace and Hodi Jones 😐
Next Chapter: Decken needs to get his frilly pink-panty-self to where Luffy is! What will the powered up Hodi Jones do next?!
Best Character: Sanji does it again! Baka 😀 Luffy deflected the giant axe and saved his Hoshi-hime…aww! <- he gets 2 cool points for that.
Worst Character: Shirahoshi does it again 😐 Jinbe is nice/helpful and everything but, he has never really thrilled me in any way as an OP character….hmm. I’m patiently waiting to see more from Hodi and Decken (less talking <-we’ve had a lot of that already and more action)
Likes: Not much to like about this chapter really. Sanji’s humour is a given. People are moving around but not much is really happening.
Dislikes: One Piece is such a long mainstream manga. It might not be a bad idea to speed up the plot a little. For over a month nothing has really been happening. A few mini scuffles here and there and that’s it. Is this supposed to be some sort of build up to an epic battle in Fishman Island? If so all the hype/heightened anticipation has died down somewhat in my opinion. Now I just want them to fight and move on. Though, I admit the last few chapters have improved. The last chapter was pretty good. This chapter however, has lost some cool points. Over twenty chapters have passed since the two year time skip. We’re desperate to see them do SOMETHING lol (seeing the characters posing off after delivering an ossm blow <-from a fight that we don’t get to see, doesn’t count) All impatience/selfishness aside, we humbly look forward to see some more improvement in this arc 🙂
More Chapter Ratings:
mu§e: 7/10 – Pretty good chapter. Sanji had me dying. Glad to see him back to his normal stupid self.
§tiggles: 6/10 – Nothing worth talking about happened. Jinbe’s various facial expressions were the most unpredictable things in this chapter 😐
Random Hot Topic: So guys, do you think Luffy will have a gf/wife in the future when he’s mature and woman conscious or will he be Peter Pan forever? His innocence is so cute/funny though 🙂 Also, which pairings do you like the most in One Piece? Although I’m not too keen on LuffyxNami I really like this picture:
