Mangaka: Eiichiro Oda Title: Queen Otohime Rating: 6/10
Synopsis: This week’s chapter begins on a somber note with the death of the almighty Boss Tai who finally succumbed to the injuries inflicted upon him by the marines. Arlong, who had been captured by Kizaru, is wroth and loathes humans all the more. Arlong and Aladdin reflect upon all that has happened concerning Boss Tai and Arlong and then they prepare for battle and many more battles after that. They completely consume themselves with fighting and Jinbe in particular attracts the attention of the marines.
Queen Otohime continues to order people to sign her petition and she also continues to teach children about life above the sea. So far she has one thousand signatures out of the fifty million inhabitants of fishman island o.O (poor thing). Ultimately, her people disappoint her and she goes off on a drunken tirade (which was kind of funny tbh). Meanwhile, Jinbe decides to take up the marines offer of becoming a royal Shichibukai, (I wonder when he first met my hubby! <3) thinking that this would placate his queen somewhat and improve relations between the humans and the fishmen. However, the incensed Arlong is consumed with hatred and falls farther into darkness and villainy…
Likes: The only thing that interested me in this chapter with the little anecdote about Jinbe becoming a Shichibukai.
Dislikes: I started reading this chapter with a smile on my face that gradually turned upside down by the time I was finished. This chapter was a disappointment. Firstly, Boss Tai dies. The end. That was a bit abrupt but then I thought, well at least the chapter is moving on…. On the contrary, everything else was just a repetition of what we have read before. I don’t know why this chapter was called Queen Otohime. Nothing special or unique really happened concerning her. I suppose the ending with the Tenryuubito is a foreshadow of her demise? Hopefully the end of this entire flashback is drawing near. It’s been interesting and all that but I miss Luffy and Zorro. And Sanji. And….yeah…. 😛

mu§e: 6.5/10 – Quiet chapter. Starting to feel like a bit of déjà vu for me though… the same things are happening. Otohime screaming for signatures, people refusing and being scared, hatred for humans…we get it. Granted, her drunken cursing was funny…..just waiting to see where this is all leading up to really.
