Mangaka: Eiichiro Oda Title: 100,000 vs 10 Rating: 6/10
Synopsis: This week, we find out that Jinbei and Luffy actually planned something before running off to Hodi Jones. Sanji was skeptical about their so called “plan”. Silly libertine. Hodi Jones gets up looking all bruised and disheveled and the fish people cheer for their hero (Luffy) who arrived in style in the nick of time. Hodi’s jail shark-friend taunts the Straw Hat Pirates who completely ignore him as they get into character with their bickering and what not.
Hodi gets excited and starts rattling off his usual evil speech when half of his followers (50,000!!!) charge the Straw Hat Pirates *frightened face* Oh no! Luffy steps forward like a boss and uses his Haki to get rid of ALL 50K them. Whoa! Luffy is irritated by Hody’s racist speech, well just the part where he talks about being the Pirate king to my chagrin (hey, it’s Luffy 😐 ) and he Gomu Gomu’s Hody’s bishes to oblivion. Fired up and completely in character now, his crew mates prepare to punish the naughty fish pirates as well.
Likes: Luffy using Haki. Luffy getting angry. Luffy pwning everyone. Luffy, Luffy and more Luffy! That is all.
Dislikes: A weak chapter. Hodi must have given that racist speech a thousand times in this bloody arc. Is Shirahoshi a valiant placid tempered mermaid because she kept that secret for so long? No. Is she still the most annoying character in this manga? Yes. I was not really amazed or thrilled this week. The end of the chapter provided some long awaited hype though. That saved the chapter imo. Apart from Luffy’s burst of anger here and there, everything else just seems like a parody. There are times when you should feel upset or annoyed at the crap that goes down because of the bad guys but then these moments always gets ruined by too much talking, ill-timed comic relief, or annoying crybabies. I can’t take anything seriously. Everything seems like a big joke. Can we get down to business now?
More Chapter Ratings:
mu§e: 6-ish/10 – And yes, I just said 6-ish…tempted to give it something a little lower but I’ll let it be for today. As for Shirahoshi, no, she’s still an annoying, weakling, cry baby. Can we either get rid of her after this chapter or kill her and make bbq fish tail out of her? You know, so she could actually be worth something?
Random Hot Topic: I registered for early access to Pottermore on day three! 😀 Today’s day 5 and the clue to finding the Magical Quill is out now! It will disappear very quickly so you have to be very quick about it as spaces are limited. You’ll have to do some simple math based on the Order of the Phoenix. I hate math. Remember if you don’t get in today you have tomorrow and the day after to try. If not you can always wait till October when the site is open to all you silly muggles. Good luck!
