    To be honest, I don't dislike that Big Mom butted in. I would, however, have prefered by far if it had been at least partly caused by Nami and Usopp's trickstery instead of having Tama be their plot armor again and again. They would at least have earned some credit, whereas right now it's one convenience after the other.

    Kaido is implying if Luffy (or Will of Ds?) laughs more, "something" will happen.
    For example, "The more you laugh, the stronger Will of Ds will get".
    Oda is deliberately hiding what Kaido said here.
    This line is so important that JP fans already enjoy discussing it.

    I've heard a theory from some people that D is just short for the smiley emoticon (:D)
    because almost everyone carrying the Will of D dies with a smile on their face.
    .
    I'd say, at least the unofficial corrected it within an hour

    Would you care to elaborate,please?because it seems mere speculation otherwise

    And can someone post the spoiler schedule again?

    And just to note, Oda's breaks are separate from Jump's breaks, so it's more likely there will be a break between 1013 and 14, rather than 14 and 15.

    Speaking of those chapters, with volume 100 being 1005-1014 (or even up to 1015), I wonder what else next weeks will bring us. So far, volume 100 has gotten quite sone developments:

    - Teasing Robin’s 1st fight in ages
    - A wild Perospero appears
    - Marco’s badassery against Queen and King
    - Chopper curing Ice Demon plague and punching Queen
    - Kanjuro and Orochi alive
    - Jack vs Inu
    - Yonko combo attack
    - Supernova teaming up against Big Mom
    - Zoro’s Conqueror haki
    - Luffy finds out the secret of Conqueror haki
    - Hera
    - Killer vs Hawkins
    - Big Mom beats Page One.

    With three (Maybe 4) chapters remaining in this volume, I’m feeling the biggest surprises are yet to come.
    I’ve been expecting the end of Act 3 each time a volume is near its final chapters. Maybe this will finally be it? (Or not, and I’m wrong again, lol)
    Wano predictions: There will be 5 acts; All Straw Hats will get fights, some in Act 4; Big Mom Pirates will arrive; Carrot will have her moment, but won't join; Yamato will be a Kouzuki samurai and Wano's Guardian; Shanks will visit Luffy in Act 5; Next arc is Mary Geoise.

    Didn't Usopp only used that dial once against Luffy? How would that be his bread and butter?

    I really prefered dials with established capacities that could be conbined with other things over the current “magic seeds that do whatever the plot demands”. Most pop green effects could be replaced by fairly mundane alternatives, like bombs or flaming ammo. They are also not particularly strong, just versatile.

    Impact dial was seriously under-utilized. Usopp only used it against Luffy and Perona. I’d love to see him absorb Ulti’s headbutt now.

    I honestly remembered him using it in other ocasions, but can't find those anywhere, so i guess that part was an overblown hyperbole on my part.
    The whole point still stands though. He totally had effective close range weapons in his arsenal, and had the time to work on the blatant drawbacks like all the other SH did on their weak points during the timeskip.
    But he chose pinecones, apparently.

    He did use it against the hippo zombie when fighting Perona, right? Or was that anime filler?

    Thinking about how can they outsmart these two brutes is what makes the match up interesting. I mean even at the most basic you could use trickery to get Ulti to headbutt pay-pay in the face. Trying to just shoot stronger things at them like Oda has them doing now would go nowhere, they need to dig down into a real battle and have them do mirage tempo style illusions, teamwork traps like Jinbei and Robin got in on BM, use counters/re-directing attacks, using aim to make them swallow explosives/drugs, make use of the enviroment etc etc. Just thinking about a classic Usopp style match like that gets me salivating.

    Yeah, I'm also pretty heart-broken that the dials seem to be all used up. I thought the Impact Dial was a terrific work around for Usopp's weakness.

    So big mom didn't use advanced coc punch on the 5 supernovas but she used it on page1. Proof that either page1 is a bigger threat or the yonkous were never fully serious with the 5 or else they would be dead fast.

    Then what she does once she reckognizes Queen.
    Then what she says to Perospero when he questions the alliance.

    This entire setup is her idea. She's not in Wano just for Luffy's head.
    So, Big Mom suddenly felt a disturbance in the force and called Kaido after what 30-40 years? Yeah, Luffy wasn't the sole reason why she called Kaido, why she went to Wano, she wasn't going after Luffy at all...

    Pay attention to the actual text...

    Knowing her charachter, probably mass suicide.
    Like, they all line up and each one seconds the previous' seppuku, so that in the end only one gets to live and spread to the world the word of what horror befalls those who oppose O-Tama the Terrible.

    Like Rahz said, Big Mom has the attention span of a toddler. She will always move on to the next thing to be outraged about.

    Notice how she completely ignores Nami despite said character's involvement in her assassination plot and stealing Zeus, which was one of the reasons the she came to Wano as well.

    While a simple "Please stop/defeat Kaido" seems easy enough and believable from Tama, l think we'll bring back a classic "Please stop all this fighting!" Or something similar from the naive, sweet little girl.

    Although I wonder if Tama's little voice can actually speak loudly enough to reach all the gifters around the castle. Even just at the live floor, that's where some of the most noise should be. Maybe some blonde guy's gonna come in at that point and reveal he took over the sound/security system? Or maybe Apoo see what's happening and decides it'd be the perfect "fuck you" to Queen to amplify the little girl's voice?

    Nope that’s not it. It is just the usual shananigans by Oda. Nobody was using CoC attacks until it was introduced with Roger and Whitebeard and nobody was using it still till Luffy learned it and started using it. Now the others yonkos are using it. It’s typical shananigans by Oda, just like the Haki fiasco during the marineford war. And then you have these Oda lovers claiming his greatness.

    (There's a Yugioh monster named Field-Commander Rahz, tho.)

    I find said personality trait quite convenient, btw. Especially when it helps keeping our good guys out of tight spots.

    BM is all kinds of random other than that, as well. Unstable, prone to amnesia, gets side tracked by sweets and children easily. Then again, women, am I right? *fist bump*
    Sure hope nobody kisses her, she might faint for the rest of the arc.
