I don't feel it's worth wracking our brains over how Kuma's powers may or may not work at this point, when we don't even know if he's at the same capabilities anymore now that his brain was turned off. He's also been heavily damaged and not properly maintained or repaired in just over 2 years. I find it very unlikely that the government or celestial dragons even had him properly repaired after he returned from guarding the Sunny. He never even paws people away anymore, so maybe Egghead is the only location left in his databanks.
Seeing Akainu's damage to him should be the beginning of the end. He's on his way for a final reuniting with Bonney before he pulls a sacrifice and shuts down for good. I'd much rather that, than seeing him collapse on the sunny and being dragged along for repairs in Elbaf. Have him go out blowing up the lab too, if you want to double down on making the Government lose here. They can get York and/or the Seraphim, but nothing else.
They're very lucky the Sunny fell out of the Mech's arms and bounced far enough away. It probably should've been close enough to get damaged by the explosion, but I can ignore it. Maybe a missed opportunity to let Franky do something to push it further away, like a good old fashioned Coup De Vent.
Kizaru definitely the All-Star of this chapter. How do you deal with Emperors again? Push them away and deal with the them later. Bonus points since pushing both Luffy and Bonney off the dome, even if they survive, is just the most pragmatic way of dealing with them temporarily, so he can focus on Vegapunk.
Points to Bonney for trying. And hey, if she didn't distract Kizaru for all those...seconds I guess, he might've just went straight for Vegapunk and ended it faster. I have no clue what we'll see from her now. I guess the robot and her can keep the armada busy for an extra few minutes until Kuma arrives, and then Kuma can bring her back up. The robot will especially be weird though. If it's too strong for the armada to stop, then Saturn should be forced to come out and destroy it. If it's not....the armada should destroy it. I don't know, these are all the elements I'm left at a loss with. Just like the blackbeards ship, which I'm gonna stop speculating on at this point, cause I just have no idea how Oda is planning to make them cause chaos here.
Kizaru still has an arm free, so I can completely see him taking a shot at Stella or trying to fill the room with light blasts before Luffy pulls him away. That's assuming Kizaru can't just get away easily by turning too light-thin for Luffy to grip or something. It's about time to see another Vegapunk drop, and as I mentioned in spoilers, Edison is top of that list now that the code has been cracked. Atlas has to bring the light gloves out still, although that could always be next chapter and then she bites it, and Lilith is outside and needs to help Franky prepare the Sunny.
While I enjoy the urgency I feel from the armada and Kizaru now, I will say that one part that's hurting is the fact the rest of the crew are still just in the lab. It's all well and good that you cracked the code, Vegapunks, but even if the ship had made it to the right spot, you and the entire crew would still have a long way to run before you're ready to launch. Especially when you have 2 injured now. But maybe that's why a few people aren't shown yet. It's always possible Chopper, Jinbe, and/or Sanji are tending to and already moving Stussy and Robin to the ship.
