    So what's left to play out at this point?

    Bege's group is dealing with Mama
    Luffy/Sanji are now with Germa against a bunch of BMP forces
    Straw Hat group is just offshore with Smoothie closing in
    Pudding's current status is unknown

    The Cacao groups should be able to escape just fine since Big Mom herself isn't there and they got Germa to assist them.
    Big Mom is far away now, so will she interact with the Straw Hats again before they take leave?
    Where will they head to after Cacao?

    This chapter was a blast!

    Several times it seemed like Oda might settle on one thing saving the day for Luffy - Pekoms' Sulong form, Sanji's arrival, but the Big Mom Pirates managed to address those things well. People who didn't like how the Sunny crew managed to work well against Big Mom should like this considering how steep of a challenge the Big Mom Pirates have posed all in a few short pages. While I might have preferred it if Pekoms had managed to go on the offensive more before he was overwhelmed, I thought it was good to demonstrate that Sulong isn't an easy out for every circumstance, which may have been a worry when Carrot first debuted it.

    That being said, Sanji kicking Raisin away was fucking cathartic and was one of my favorite panels of the chapter. Here's hoping he gets more enemies to work with, especially now that his family's here to watch him. I do hope next chapter continues having the plot swing between sides and that the Germa doesn't let the Straw Hats gain a significant advantage against the BMP's.

    I adore Yuen and his ballooning staff. I don't know, he just naturally pulls off a performance that draws attention to himself. Also, he's pretty much the villain equivalent of "spot the anime main character":


    To cap it all off, yeah, this chapter made it HUGELY clear that Pedro is going to be alive. No way Oda just throws that tidbit of him being the only one to save Pekoms dying from Sulong. NOW...I still wouldn't completely reject the idea of him not making it out of this arc alive. If his lifespan situation is not rectified, than this battle on Cacao Island may provide a way for him to not only go out for real, but to do so with conclusiveness as opposed to the suddenness of his sacrifice on the coast of Whole Cake. Maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part, but needless to say I'm quite intrigued on how this turn of events will play out.

    He's been shot at his back, thrown out to the sea of sharks, yet still lives, a mere gouge in the eyes won't stop him, dude is immortal

    You can see the BM kids and other fodders attacking him next panel and that's what made Sanji look away.

    That said, next few chapters should be good once the action really begins.
    RL people walk through fire when their life is at stake. What do you want him to do? His life was on the line, he had no idea Sanji will be out there. You want him to rollover and die?

    Only the guy that gouge the eyes, you could see blood splatter close to the sickle/axe. The rest were just making noise.

    I admit it's just a nitpick, but it's still a really simple thing to fix. Just have the Luffy/Raisen confrontation happen on the ground, and have Sanji swoop in there.

    Why would Raisin be the only one attacking when the orders was for everyone to kill Luffy? He jumped up and he had no energy to do anything about Raisin if not for Sanji. Yes his energy is gone but he's not out yet. He was ready for round 4 when he thought Katakuri is not done yet, why won't he be able to jump?

    Luffy's injuries at this moment is on par with Marineford but he was still moving/attcking until the shock of Ace's death.

    Sanji doesn't really need it but it'd be kinda cool to see if, after all these years, Judge or Reiju or somebody had a made and kept a Number 3 Raid Suit and gave it to him next chapter ...

    Good point. That makes sense.

    I guess I just would have preferred it if Luffy was so exhausted that it was clear (moreso than it is now) that he can't help right now, and has to rely on his friends.

    pekoms' sacrifice is more dramatic and impactful than pedro's. I feel really bad for pekoms.

    I'd only agree if he actually had his eyes gouged out.

    I think he hidden in his tourtle shell in momen when they attacked him. CoA haki + his shell that he hyped to be as hard as diamond would be enough to stop the damage.

    He was able to activate his shell in middle of bullet barrage from Bege so he can do it split second.

    Also I love his character design and that he still has plenty more to show us. I imagine that Luffy will get to hear/reach him while he is in his Sulong form. Maybe with help of that Voice of All Things or maybe even without it. I want Pekoms to join strawhats for at least Wano arc, I really enjoy him.

    You know, I was complaining for the longest time that the Big Mom Pirates didn't feel awfully threatening aside from Katakuri and Pespero due to Luffy and co running rings around all of them, but Oven taking out Pekoms there before he has a chance to complete his transformation and Yuen managing to ground Sanji and Luffy really helped this chapter.

    Actually felt like Oven was a competent threat using his heat powers to save Brulee like that and having prepared countermeasures to a few possible outcomes. Very nice. And oh hey; Snack's face!

    If that was the case, then he definitely wouldn't have screamed like that, to the point where it even distracted Sanji. Also blood clearly spilled. So the question is if they attacked his eyes, or another part of his body.

    This chapter has made me smile. I'm glad to see the younger generation cause some chaos for the older generation. Interested to see if Sanji + Germa team up.

    maybe because pedro just blow himself up real quick (and the fact that he most likely will survive, knowing oda) while in pekoms' case, he is being tortured, screaming, struggling, etc.

    It was a fun read, although nothing spectacular happened.

    The BM pirates were pretty decent.
