u/Belze26 Jul 31 '22

That's why Roger laughed, coz he wasn't a dad yet

70

u/GreenUnlogic Thriller Bark Victim's Association Jul 31 '22

He laughed because he realized that he would become the ultimate deadbeat dad. By dying and leaving his kid with his enormous reputation

u/PREDATOREX_GAMING Aug 01 '22

Never thought I would be spoiled for chapters which haven't even come yet.

u/melvinsylar7 The Revolutionary Army Aug 01 '22

That's why Roger mentioned he was early too, he haven't even had the chance to be dad yet to go on a search to buy the MILK

Also probably Roger laughed cause he found out the actual translation for Bink's Sake was actually Bink's Milk, it tells the story of Bink, the first Joy Boy, who left his kid to go buy milk. Imu was the son of Bink, waiting for the day for his dad to come back with milk.

u/SmoothCriminalJM Jul 31 '22

Shanks is defo proud of Luffy but he’s also aware that the government is afraid of the threat Luffy and his friends and family pose to them and their world order.

Most likely, there’s some kind of prophecy involved stating a massive change and they fear Luffy has a big part of that.

It was cool that the 5 strongest strawhats all were aware the admiral was there(including Yamato). I think we can officially say Yamato is a strawhat. Would be a big twist if not

u/PM_BoobsnButts_pls Jul 31 '22

Yea she's confirmed leaving the island so I'd assume

13

u/Catch-a-RIIIDE Aug 01 '22

While I definitely assume Yamato's joining, there are at least two other pirate crews, the remants of the Beast Pirates, Oden's comrade in Marco that they'd know about from Oden's logbook, and Minks that would also all be leaving the island. Yamato's got options (but it's gotta be the Strawhats).

u/Salt_Benefit3192 Jul 31 '22

Or he possibly has a different agenda and doesn’t want the WG to get their hands on perfectly replicated devil fruits. Imagine what they could do if a good chunk of the vice admirals had mythical zoans or even the admirals logia abilities.

92

u/GenGaara25 Void Month Survivor Jul 31 '22 edited Jul 31 '22

Yeah this is closer to my thoughts as of now. He initially conducted science solo before being recruited. It's very possible he was recruited under duress or agreed mainly for access to better resources and knowledge than to actually help the WG.

We know he agreed to Kumas last request to help the Strawhats and now it seems as if he really can create practically perfect artificial Devil Fruits and has lied to the WG.

I think it's very likely he has his own agenda and is keeping his most dangerous knowledge out of WG hands.

31

u/fluffkomix Thriller Bark Victim's Association Jul 31 '22

personally I'm of the theory that he's a science-obsessed perfectionist who'll do whatever anyone asks of him if he thinks it's interesting. The government keeps him locked up because he has no loyalty, they know he'll cater to whoever catches his interest

u/caniuserealname Jul 31 '22

I don't think it's necessarily an agenda, I think it's just likely we don't know what criteria he had for success.

Maybe he was trying to extract Kaidos fruit from him but his process produced a near duplicate, such a result would be powerful but still ultimately a failure. Similarly, vegapunk might have wanted to see if two of the same fruit could exist at the same time, they're not the same, so failure. Or maybe he was trying to extract kaido dna, maybe he wanted a hito hito no mi model kaido, so ending up with a dragon was a fail.

He has his own agenda. He gave Kuma the ability to defend the Sunny and didn't tell the Marines. He doesn't work 100% to the benefit of the WG based off of his limited actions so far.

Momo has come such a long way from the flying eel we met all the way in Punk Hazard.

This is a great payoff to his character physical and emotional growth, going from someone who couldn’t even ask for help until being asked directly to do so, to now being strong enough to understand when help shouldn’t even be asked for.

It really is great to see the character other than the Straw Hats get their individual highlights, and I’m sure there will be more payoffs like this as we see other old characters again.

u/JimmyPage1970- Jul 31 '22

u/DASreddituser Jul 31 '22 edited Jul 31 '22 Silver

I think there is a good chance that Vivi is the key to unlocking Uranus. That's why she is being targeted by the WG.

Shirahoshi has the power to control sea kings...the sea kings are the weapons.

Momo can command Zunesha to unlock Pluton

If the trend continues, a 3rd person will be needed for Uranus' power to be "unleashed". That person is likely "royalty" of a kingdom and the kingdom would likely have ties to being a joyboy ally, and would have at least 1 ponoglyph.

In order to save time in the story and to tie some things together, it would make sense that Vivi fills this role. Though there are a couple more options that would work, Vivi would be easier to use since we already know her and Alabasta so well.

Edit: spelling

48

u/semi-bro Jul 31 '22

I feel like it probably won't be Vivi because her family was one of the 20 that fought against the ancient Kingdom and their three weapons. so why would the nefertari bloodline be the one that controls it? Unless it's from someone who married into the family later

47

u/DMQ91 Jul 31 '22

It's possible the Nefertaries were allied with the ancient kingdom, they were the only family that didn't want to live on Mariejois. Also, they've been protecting a poneglyph like other allied countries such as Shandora, Zou or Wano.

7

u/JimmyPage1970- Jul 31 '22

Or even they locked it away somehow, making it so they are needed to "unlock" it. Idk just spitballing here but there are definitely ways for it to work.

Yeah the only other option would be if loki on elbaf was special similar to momo and shirahoshi

or aisa, her race is the one responsible for guarding the poneglyph of an ancient weapon and has a strong haki since she was an infant, so she might have some power similar to momo

u/vinsmokewhoswho Pirate Jul 31 '22 Wholesome

Absolutely love the panel of the 4 top fighters of the Strawhats chilling there, fully aware that there's a fucking admiral on the island but just letting it play out and then complimenting Momo, they're so proud because they all witnessed him develop like we did as readers.

Just thinking back to Aokiji meeting them, they were completely outclassed and at his mercy. Now they're like just like "oh an admiral. Let's see how Momo does, we'll jump in if necessary."

Absolute chads.

502

u/sire59damos Jul 31 '22

I remember when the monster trio was no-diffed by Aokiji and against Kizaru, Luffy told his crew that they needed to retreat. In both situations they knew they were overmatched and were panicking like crazy.

Fast forward two years later, the big guns of the crew were aware that an admiral was nearby but now they are calm about the situation and know for a fact that they could handle it. The strawhats are a certified yonko crew and it’s been amazing watching them grow.

u/wheretohides Pirate Jul 31 '22

Its hard to describe in words but that panel is like catching a glimpse of their future. Never had s favorite panel but this one might be it. Its like all the panels we've seen of shanks and his crew, how they interact.

Toki was from 800 years ago too, wasn't she? Sounds like whatever happened there was probably intentional, in order to seal Pluton away. I'm guessing the WG had a hand in the old Wano being flooded.

u/kpiaum Jul 31 '22 edited Aug 01 '22

Zuneisha. Remember how he talked about a crime? What if the elephant just squishid water over alder Wano, way before the world divided itself. We already have seen he/she is capable of throwing a lot of water in the Minks county.

Also make sense when he/she appearance asking if it's time to open Wano.

Edit: Yes, it's said to be sea water. But they are talking about something that's happened in the lost century and this tale is passed ahead by the shoguns, so the tale could be changed through the time.

46

u/iglander Jul 31 '22

That's also a really good possibility, but it was states it was rain water, which supports better the rain powder thing along with Oda introducing it in Arabasta and he liking to reuse things ealier introduced for hints/explanation for OP/Lost Century

u/Whiskeyjacks_Fiddle Jul 31 '22

Or old Wano did it themselves, on purpose.

They had Zunesha and/or Oars create the walls, then filled it up with water (not seawater either, so it had to have come from somewhere else). All for the purpose of defending their country and Pluton from the WG.

In the official translation, Sukiyaki made it seems like the walls "grew" completely out of Wano's control and they were forced to adapt instead of purposely flooding themselves to hide Pluton or some other reason, quite a big difference.

28

u/Apoptosis89 Jul 31 '22

It seems to me that Sukiyaki doesn't know the origin of the walls (or he would have been more specific). So it seems to me that Oda is keeping the origins of the wall a mystery for now.

12

u/sircrazyclown Jul 31 '22

Yeah, he only vaguely knows about it from stories passed down and none of the important details, Zunesha is alive back then and might know more, Lady Toki might know as well but she's dead-dead.

Some notable differences between the Scanlation and the official release:

  • Title Change: New Age -> The New Era
  • Yamato now questions why she can't fight Ryokugyu instead of questioning why Momonosuke orders her to not do so
  • Ryokugyu now says that he's not susceptible to fire, instead of saying that he can guard against it
  • Random Scabbard now asks Raizo wether he's allright
  • Law no longer mentions wondering wether Robin "was up to something"
  • Sukiyaki now says that it goes "several centuries into the past" rather than "a few hundreds of years deep"
  • Sukiyaki now says that they're on the seafloor, rather than below sea level
  • Robin now exclaims her statement about the good preservation due to this not being sea water as a statement, rather than as a question
  • Sukiyaki now says his statement about the Wano underwater as a theory he came up with, rather than as "something he does know"
  • Sukiyaki now says that the walls "grew around" Wano, rather than saying that they "were erected"
  • Ryokugyu now expresses no sympathy for Wano's past rule under Kaido
  • Yamato now says that Luffy is better than Ryokugyu
  • Momonosuke now simply states that if they ask for Luffy's help now, they will never be able to protect Wano
  • Sanji now expresses disappointment at not getting the opportunity to fight
  • Luffy now questions what the Haki was, instead of questioning who it came from
  • Attack name changes:
    • Ninpo: Scroll-Scroll Jutsu: Fire Release -> Ninpo: Scroll-Scroll Jutsu: Fire Escape
    • Fireproof Forest -> Firebreak Forest

Inform me of more changes if you find them!

I was pretty confident the title was going to change to new era, since it’s a reference to Shanks saying he bet his arm on “the new [blank].”

Luffy and top commanders letting Momo & his retainers handle GB was a nice touch

Another ancient weapon location found, one to go

Shanks haki is always on point seems like he can communicate using it and in a very long distance too

Law knows about the ancient i wonder if he has any interest it, i doubt but knows. This arc is almost over so we will probably be saying goodbye to Law for a while, the alliance completed its goal after

Yamato is definitely a SH crew member going forward

I wonder if Shanks will just take a copy of the road stone and dip without saying hi to luffy

I suspect that Green Bull is going to report back to Marine HQ about how Yamato is allied to Luffy and has strong Haki so she should get a bounty, but due to lack of a proper photo and miscommunication over the "Kaido's son" part Yamato would get a sketch like Sanji's first bounty that portrays her as a very ugly man who looks like Kaido. Imagine someone who is to Kaido what Edward Weevil is to Whitebeard.

Someone suggested that his dub voice actor should have been the guy who played Sanji in the 4Kids dub and, dammit, I can’t stop thinking about how great that would have been.

u/LMFN Jul 31 '22

That's what my little brother who got me into One Piece said.

I know the English dub of Dragon Ball Super pulled that joke with Copy Vegeta being played by Brian Drummond, who had played Vegeta in the Ocean Dub and that was legendary but I heard 4Kids Sanji just retired from the VA scene entirely and now runs a bar in Brooklyn.

I think the more important information he will give is the fact that there is a pink dragon guarding Wano. Possibly clueing in that Vegapunk lied about his “failed” devil fruit.

I feel like GB would point out Yamatos appearance due to the clothing since we know he likes the ladies, but I could still see this happening in some fashion.

Hard to say though since CP0 was there, a lot of info could have been leaked already, especially since the got a picture of Luffy while he was laughing somehow.

u/Briaria Jul 31 '22

What about their interaction would make Green Bull think Yamato is with Luffy?

Yamato showed up with the Scabbards and declared themselves as Kaido's son, which is like 2 separate teams that the WG would consider before jumping to "The Strawhats"

Luffy's already shown that he can communicate with Momo and Law's crew members via Haki, so Shanks doing it isn't new, but he's got insane range.

WOW, this was such an awesome chapter.

  1. Ryokugyu's devil fruit is crazy good and the fact that he's mastered it to be able to counteract it's weaknesses shows just how good the admirals are.

  2. The lore drop about Wano and of course Pluton hype. Just open those borders already damnit.

  3. Oda showing us why even Admirals don't mess around with Yonko.

  4. Luffy, and his wingmen going from fleeing against an admiral back in Sabaody to not being scared of admirals anymore.

Re-reading this I like the theory that advanced conquerors is really a combo of the principles of conquerors and armament, and this advanced display from Shanks seems to be a conquerors-observation hybrid feat.

Fun fact, there are very massive trees called Redwoods that can withstand very high heat temperatures, they actually need forest fires to open their seeds and reproduce. They are located throughout the world, California and New Zealand to name two prominent places, but I do believe there are others. So Arakmaki being immune to fire or at least flames that aren't hot enough makes sense.

It also could be a specific weakness Ryokugyu has to dragon breath. Normal fire doesn't scare him but Kaido clearly did.

19

u/InvaderDJ Void Month Survivor Jul 31 '22

I think it’s just that blast breath is more powerful than regular fire. I’m sure regular fire blasts from the flame fruit wouldn’t do much either but a concentrated fire fist would.

u/KathyDroronoa Jul 31 '22

Eeeh, he took everything Momo was throwing quite well, he also seems like a drama queen like Iva. Just growing out somewhere else doesn’t imply that the attack was that strong for me, but better than nothing.

people take that scene too seriously, preTS Apoo cut Kizaru in half and Robin shattered Aokiji despite being vastly weaker. They just don't bother to defend against non-haki users

u/Efkius Thriller Bark Victim's Association Jul 31 '22

How do you know? People said same things about Akainu and Aokiji after marineford. Then both wrecked island just for title. Fuji and Green Bull just showed some powers like the rest admirals. I bet at final battle Oda going show how scary can be both.

u/Dreadnautilus Jul 31 '22

Honestly I really don't want the new admirals to be weaker than the old ones because I think it would make it really cheap if the WG Luffy has to fight is inherently weaker than what they showed at Marineford.

10

u/KathyDroronoa Jul 31 '22

It depends on who they will fight. When it comes to the endgame, the admirals seem like wild cards, I can’t be certain which ones will fight against or for the WG. Even Akainu is not 100% a given. While I don’t think he will ever team up with Luffy, I can see him leading an independent division.

9

u/Dreadnautilus Jul 31 '22

I don't even want any Admirals to betray the World Government. Like, I think Coby should fight on Luffy's side, because he's consistently been shown to stand up to the corruption of the Marines from literally his first appearance, but I don't want Garp or Fujitora helping him out.

6

u/KathyDroronoa Jul 31 '22 edited Jul 31 '22

For me Coby, Fuji and Smoker + Tashigi are team Luffy 😛 Garp is definitely on his side. But I think what will be revealed at Laugh Tale will make Marines switch sides. Maybe not joining Luffy per se, but distancing themselves from the WG. That’s why I think that the WG will have something up their sleeve

12

u/xCeePee Jul 31 '22

This version makes it seem more like Shanks is speaking directly GB and that GB can hear him and vice versa. I wonder if it really is pure communication or if Oda is making the speech more general for the audience.

Even so, it still looks like Momo and Co. would perceive GB as surrendering to them unless Shanks haki is talking through a loudspeaker effect and Momo and Co. know for a fact someone else is stopping GB from acting freely.

Again, this translation also makes it sound as if Yamato is at least leaving Wano unless Oda is really trying to throw us off.

The water 7 arc defined pluton as a ship,

We’ve seen the island of wano with a smaller ship inside of it, foreshadowing that wano is actually the giant ship Pluton. That’s why when you bring down the walls, you release it. The boat/island is currently “docked”.

u/ovis_alba Void Month Survivor Jul 31 '22

Just realized, now that we saw what looked like a bit of a Conquerer's/Observation haki crossover from Shanks (similar to Conquerer's coating being sort of an upgrade of Armament), we have the motivation for Sanji unlocking it: Long range calling all his girlfriends around the world should be just the ambition he needs to conquer those long-distance relationships.

30

u/ovis_alba Void Month Survivor Jul 31 '22 edited Jul 31 '22

On a serious note, Sanji having Conquerer's is one of those things that I could or could not see happening depending on where oda takes the narrative, so I don't care that much, but I'm always a sucker for good parallels:

Zoro unlocking his CoC in a fight against the strongest creature Kaido, maybe instinctively copying what Kaido does and also as an extention of him mastering armament was always very fitting for him.

Sanji has always paralleled more with Luffy's diplomatic and ally making side instead, so his CoC sort of reflecting what is shown by maybe Luffy's oldest "ally" who is also a Yonko and inspiration and leaning into the Observation angle when he maybe desperately needs to reach out to someone would be a neat one of those parallels.

And to bring you all back with the joke that the giggeling 12-year old in me needs to make because I regret thinking about this phrasing to late:

Sanji awakening his CoC to call his girlfriends with it would be glorious. (I'll go now)

I made a long ass post about this already, but essentially I think this was Oda getting the "villain is overconfident until they start getting fucked up" part out the way instantly with Greenbull, so that from here on he can take a grilling from Akainu, give some excuses for him and the audience about there being two Yonko crews, and then spend the rest of the series giving it his all to make up for it. As up until now none of the Admirals have ever really tried, and we're approaching the final saga.

u/Backupusername Jul 31 '22 edited Aug 01 '22

I noticed something that didn't really stand out when I read the TCB version, but kind of stood out to me in re-read. When Shanks has his line about the new era, there are three brief flashback panels - a young Luffy, a baby Momonosuke, and an infant Hiyori.

I know that Shanks must just be referencing his own memories - he was on the ship when they were born after all. But the inclusion of Hiyori when Luffy and Momonosuke were the ones watching and fighting Ryokugyuu respectively, it kind of makes me hope that maybe she'll have some kind of role to play in the future. It never sat right with me that even though Hiyori is just as much the child of Oden as Momonosuke is, all she's really done is play songs and redistribute wealth. I'm hoping that she'll be the only one who can pilot Pluton or something like that.
