    so far bassed of this flashback Shirahoshi is looking more likely to join than Jinbe, but i hope not her whole crybaby thing would get fairly old fairly quick.
    also Otohime's death didnt make rmy shed a tear but i ralely do when reading it weekly it seems to hit me harder when im marathoning a series not shore why.
    i like brook he gives me a bone-er haha skull joke

    Where exactly did this whole "Shirahoshi as new crew member" thing come from? I don't remember where it was stated but I definitely recall something about, every crew member has a dream that they're pursuing. The one time in the past where a crewmember's dream came true (Vivi saved her country) she left the crew. It doesn't matter what kind of huge powers or abilities someone has, it's whether they have a dream to follow. Sure, she might have one that we don't know about, but until then there's no more justification for her than anyone else.

    Also, totally agreeing that that shadow is supposed to be Shanks.

    VDD is wanted because he throws stuff at shirahoshi. They will find out it was him who shot otohime eventually, but in the flashback i guess they dont know it was him.

    Also, I didn't see it brought up by anyone during the whole rest of the chapter.

    They might suspect him next chapter, which may be why he's wanted.
    Somehow, I managed to not see the rifle on his waist - that's weird. Makes him the most likely candidate for the assassination, at least so far...
    Wonder how he managed to get past Otohime's CoO, but as someone mentioned, she was probably too absorbed with the signatures burning - which might be the doing of VDD, too.

    I love how Oda shows a serious/sad side to seemingly goofy characters. Aladdin seems suspicious, odd to ask for a doctor when one is right there. Was Hodi in this chapter? Who could have shot her? With so many people happy to migrate somebody still feeling hatred should have stuck out like a sore thumb. Either CoO has some disadvantage we don't know of or the assassin knew how to get around it meaning they might be someone close to her.

    If she ever had a chance these developments effectively kill it. With such a power she can actually protect and lead her people after their inevitable migration. Not just ditch the job to her brothers and dad to go sailing for some inexplicable reason.

    That chapter was directly related to Tom's relationship with Franky as was the entire flashback about Franky. Jinbei was just a bystander with a single line this chapter and he isn't the center of the flashback at all. Only connection to many of the events is simply that he was there, nothing more.

    I really wonder how Oda will incorporate her into the crew. A gigantic mermaid is kinda troublesome to include in a manga which for the most takes place on the land. Those bubbles on which the fishmen ride can only exist on FI and Shabaody Park so they are no solution either. And if all she does is swim besides the Sunny and joke around while on the open sea it would be a waste to even make her a SH. Perhaps the casket will age her until her fins split so she can walk.

    I swear it hasn't happened to me in a long time, but the page with the princes dancing and acting all stupid in order to prevent Shirahoshi from crying, while they are crying their eyes out. . .That made me almost cry. I think it's fucking, FUCKING powerful. I don't think if I'll sound exagerated or something, but I think, in terms of dramatism, Oda just outdid himself here.

    The rest of the chapter is great: Child of destiny can be annoying, but I don't know if it's been done that much in One Piece anyway. And hell, if Nausicaa could be a child of destiny, why not Luffy?
    Also liked the shooting scene. That I wasn't expecting; a diversion, an unknown shots her, and that's it. VDD was kinda funny in a creepy way (the way he touched and talked to Shirahoshi like nothing happened, that was kinda black humourish). And all in all, great chapter.

    So, btw, are the pacing issues still that bad? The flashback is being fleshed out just fine, it's long without being boring and filled with info bits and good caracterization (is that even a word??). And I predict a FI map as long as we come back to present day, with the SH preparing an assault on Hodi's forces on different points of the Island.

    I believe it was a strong person killing Otohime. Someone able to bypass her haki...

    maybe Van Auger? hehe.

    The dream really is no obstacle. Oda can easily have Shirahoshi inherit Otohime's dream, after such an emotional flashback it shouldn't surprise anyone.

    I don't know if Oda trolling us or not. But for the argument Shirahoshi not joining because she too big to fit in the ship, there a magic box that make you grow old/young. So she could fit in the ship by using that box..

    Well he might have just shot her from Sabaody's shore

    I say Doflamingo is behind the assassination. Keeps his underground slave trading business in check.

    She was bigger than Jinbei or Teach even as a 1 year old.

    Age does not work that way.
    When she was a baby, she was already a giant. Making her younger isn't going to help.

    The box makes one grow older and that's it, for now atleast. Secondly, it only solves the age problem (i.e Shirahoshi not having legs because she's too young), not the size.

    The magic box with the powers of aging struck as particularly odd, since we already have a character (Jewelry Bonney) with apparently similar powers.

    UNLESS JEWELRY BONNEY IS REALLY KOALA AND SHE STOLE THE BOX AND SHE'S GOING TO JOIN THE CREW AFTER HELPING SAVE FISHMAN ISLAND

    ...or not.

    Silhouetted person on page 12 .... Could it be Shanks? Looks kinda similar and because it is a silhouette you can not tell which way they are facing.

    Why Shanks would get involved? no clue.
