    While I work, I listen to Gairoku Channel’s interviews with people on the street. Hearing about all the different lives people have is so interesting.

    Damn! I like the way Oda's shifted Nami away from cowardice.

    Robin has a fight, Nami has a fight.

    I told it before: everyone will get their fight. This is the current saga's grand finale, it will have a moment for everyone.

    Fun chapter, but it's mostly connecting tissue between important scenes. After a break, it was kind of underwhelming. Now I'm "itching" for 1,013.

    Volume 100 ends in 1,014 or maybe 1,015. I wonder if we will get some big oh-shit moment to cap it off.
    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.

    Honestly I hope that's it for Page One and Zoro. I know everybody wants Zoro to have his 1 on 1 fight, but at some point people are actually going to have to stay down and not just walk off these serious injuries.

    Yeah, this definitely wasn't a worthy after-break chapter, but it wasn't bad. I feel like the next few of them are going to be more like this one, though, with the final configurations of the final battles being set up. I hope it includes us getting more than a glimpse at Jinbe's fight.

    "Surprised you found the rooftop" Viz beat the fan trans this week

    As I said for the last chapter, this isn't a full side change. It caters to BM's role in here where she is really just for her own self interest first. Streusen was nice to her when she was the most vulnerable and Okobore Town (Tsuru and Tama) were as well. Not easy to duplicate a moment where BM is that vulnerable. All those stars have to line up where she's vulnerable (amnesia or lost all her "family) and someone happens to be kind to her. Mother Mode is just the icing for Tama.

    Momo was too young to fully comprehend everything on WB and Roger's ship. Doubt he left the ship for every country or island. I wonder if what he reads is pertaining to after he returned to Wano and Oden went to Laugh Tale, just more of a perspective from his pops for stuff he (Momo) was around for, or a lil bit of both. Would be interesting if Buggy or Shanks met Momo in the present day.

    The most important question. What is consistent when it comes to Oda? He has given the tooth back and he has kept the tooth missing at points. Will Kinemon ever get his tooth back? I'm invested in this.

    I like Sanji and Zeus interactions. Nami slave to Nami slave, Sanji's inexorable commitment to that role can never be topped. Zeus might get BM's blessing in a sense if he helps Nami due to Ulti's actions. If he defies BM to help Nami here, it will be big for his character development.

    When was the last time Nami looked this ready to fight? I don't remember but it's nice.

    Yamato finally leaving Momo behind to quickly get to the rooftop.

    Look forward to him possibly running in to Sanji and Zoro.

    i'm still puzzled at how we are supposed to believe Perospero is responsible for the death of some guy who went kamikaze on him. I'm sympathetic to Pedro, and Peros is generally hideous, but there should be a limit to warping reality.

    This is why I'm beginning to suspect that we will see a change in motivation from the minks, in that they will attack Perospero for the raid's success, and not out of misguided revenge. Carrot was too close and inexperienced to see it, but Nekomamushi has a far better understanding of the pirate game and its consequences, having traveled with WB and Roger.

    The fact that Pedro himself told them to move on (which was repeated this arc via flashback) will likely play a role in this.

    Perospero just can't catch a break huh?

    Nami looking battle ready is nice for a change. Now that P1 is hurt, seems like the perfect opportunity for Ussop to get his licks in and make them count.

    Yamato going on his own really has me excited for the possibility of meeting Sanji and Zoro. Plus nice exposition between him and Kaido
    Here’s how Naruto should end: Last panel is Naruto standing proudly over Konohagakure. Slowly zoom out to reveal Luffy staring into a snowglobe with a miniature Konoha inside it. Usopp asks him what he’s doing. Luffy replies “Thinkin’ bout ninjas! Ninjas are cool!” and then chucks it off the ship

    Pedro killed himself to stop Perospero who was trying to kill the crew at the time, so it's not wrong to say he's responsible for Pedro's death.

    Spoiler:
    Of course, the rest of the Big Mom pirates were trying to kill the crew, and the crew themselves tried to kill his mom....

    I am wondering where Zoro can heal himself and get back to fighting again. It wouldn't make sense for him to be out of commission for long

    Whenever the opponent is far away and they've lost the will to fight (695), Nami is ready and willing. This time, Ulti is neither. Great for Nami.

    Marco's healing is said to be limited on others, but yeah....it might be enough to get Zoro in fighting condition if still fairly injured.
