Chapter 446 "Doctor Hogback" Discussion
First post yay! Thx Battle Franky
Wow . And i was just about to complain.
Yay, first page! Thanks Battle Franky!
4th post! yay! Thnx BF
Hogback's zombie girl is the freakiest thing I've ever seen.
Now, I definitely advocate Brooke joining the crew, because if she does, I think Sanji is going to have nightmares.
And Hogback looks like the Penguin after a couple spoonfuls of LSD.
Yup, yup… "Thriller Bark", it's official now.
COOL!!!!! And in HQ too. Downloading …
Monster thanks, dude!!!
Fuzzurst Page, thanks BF.
tnx Battle Franky. You're awesome.
first page huh? never happened before
Great! Thx BF! :]
nice one franky.
i just started to wonder when the would come
Boy this arc is definitely a gold mine for hentai doujins x|
Was the script ever translated?
after reading the chapter:
better than the last 2
love the scene where they eat pudding
that cerebus is official luffy food…
thnx Battle Franky
Is it just me, or is Usopp's personality starting to change… He didn't hesitate to pull out his slingshot and blowup the wall... And when did his normal slingshot get so strong to blow up a wall?
I'm almost willing to bet Usopp will get his fight this arc. And seeing as the zombie girl uses long range atacks.. it wouldn't suprise me if he faces her.
But of course it's still to early to tell.
Yes! At least it's here! Thanks BF and all who provided the chapter!
Dibs on luffy in the colorspread.
tnx!!!! but.. page 3 is missing… oooohh Nami....
I'm going to repeat what I said in the spoiler topic: Cindry is based off a Japanese ghost story where a maid accidentally broke one of her master's 10 valuable plates, so the master killed her and tossed her body into a well. Every night afterwards, a voice can be heard coming from the well saying, "1 plate, 2 plates, 3 plates…"
LOL at Usopp, Chopper, and Hogback licking the pudding off the table!
The Chesire Cat is in the mansion too...
And lots of fanservice here, which isn't a bad thing.
I can easily predict the next chapter: Luffy and gang take a walk through the forest, and in their trails are beaten up bodies of various monsters. Just you see!
Lastly, is Franky carrying a bazooka on his back in the last page?
Thanks Battle franky.
Loving how Franky and Zoro look in the colour spread. Oda shouldn't have had anyone smiling.
The art was yet again awesome [not like the previous one, but very close]. Also the scene with Luffy and the gang is the end was pure gold, I was like "OHHHHH YEAH!"
Chopper looked twisted alot through the chapter though. And Usopp saw Nami naked. >>
Also one thing I noticed, it doesn't seem that it's Cindry who knows Brooke, but rather Hogback. If you look carefully, you'll see that Cindy didn't have a bubble thought above her head that stated anything about Brooke, but Hogback has one. So maybe it's actually Hogback who knows Brooke.
sugoi thx BF
omg i still haven't read 445 o,o
Is that Zoro or Guts in the colorspread?:P Awesome!
Translation by Terlakers123 from MSN One Piece Manga v.2 boards:
! 第446話 ドクトル・ホグバッグ
Chapter 446 "Doktor Hogback"
The Jump cover has Luffy and Vivi (there's also news about the movie)
The colorspread has the Strawhats as Barbarians [Vikings actually, amirite?]
The scene continues from last week
Nami: Excuse meeeee?
Usopp: What's with this mansion, there's a tunnel right at the center of it. I can see a courtyard on the other side. There wouldn't be noone at home, would there….?
Nami: That would be bad. If we turn back, we'll run into the zombies!!
ウソップ「見ろ！奥で明かりがついたぞ、明かりっつうより・・・スポットライトだ この古井戸 の・・・
Usopp: Look! A light just went on inside, no not just a light… it's a spotlight. That old well's ... [a well??]
A kinda strange woman appears
The woman, while piling up plates
Woman: One, two, three, four, five, six, seven…
She throws the plates
Everyone: EEEEH!? What, what, now she's throwing the plates!!
Usopp: OUCH! Am I the one who's aimed on!?
Woman: Yes… that's right. You are not allowed to enter the mansion.
Pointing at Nami and Chopper
Woman: You two there may enter.
Nami: Eh? Why?
Woman: (to Usopp) You. Leave. Period!! Eight!! Nine!!
???: It's okay!!! Wait!!! If it's just one more person we can make an exception!! Cindry-chan!!
Usopp: !! There's somebody!
？？？「驚かせて悪かったお前ら！！この 女は昔婚約していた大富豪の主人の愛を試す為に 主人の宝物の十枚の皿を全て叩き割った所婚約破棄さ れ、顔にハナクソをつけられて 追い出されたという不幸な過去を持つ皿嫌いのシンドリー ちゃんだ」
???: Sorry that she surprised you!! This woman is Cindry-chan who hates plates, which mean a tragic past to her ever since she got rejected for completely smashing the ten treasured plates of a rich man, who proposed to her, when she wanted to test his love for her. 一 同（どうでもいい・・・）
Everyone: (okay whatever…)
! ドクトル（？？？）「そして紹介が遅れた、このおれは！！！世にも名高きドクトル・ホグバック ！！！
Doktor ???: Well I've missed introducing myself!!! I'm the world's famous Doktor Hogback!!! Also known as "Genius"!!! Fosfosfosfos (<- that's his laughter)
Introductory box: Master of the mansion (genius surgeon) Doktor Hogback
Cindry: TEN!!! (throwing one more plate at Usopp)
Doktor: Wai-wai-wai-waiit!!! Cindry-chan!! I already said it's okay!!!
Cindry: It would be okay if all the plates in the world would vanish.
Doktor: I know!! sweat I totally know but I'm totally talking right here!!
Usopp: Chopper… is that the one you talked about...
Chopper: Do… Doktor Hogback, the real deal????
Nami: He's kinda idiotic
Cindry: Well if you say so… today as an exception three people may enter.
Cindry, Nami and the other three go inside
Doktor: Ah… I still (Still ....... I......) sweat
Chopper: Can I have an autograph!?
Doktor: Why sure!!
Chopper: After that, may I see your laboratory?
Doktor: Never look inside my lab..
Cindry: There you go. Pudding.
Doktor: EEEEH!! One moment, Cindry-chan! At least bring the pudding on a plate!! Can't this wish be granted?!
Cindry: But it would be better if the world got rid of all plates
Doktor: Because of that now the table cloth has to be washed so hard you'd die 一同「じゃあいただきます」
Everyone: Well bon appetit シンドリー「お風呂の準備できたわよ、あんた達汚いから入ればいい」
Cindry: The preparations for the bath are complete. You may go since you're dirty.
Usopp: Ah, right, old man… although I don't really care... what we ran into earlier - did by any chance a weird skeleton pop up around here?
Usopp: … Yeah, he's a bean pole.... with an afro... strangely cheerful... I guess you don't know...
Cindry: N… No! We don't know! (That guy's ...? No... it couldn't be....!!)
The doktor licks some pudding from the table
! 屋敷内 風呂場 シャワーを浴びるナミと、入り口に居るウソップとチョッパー
Inside the mansion, the bathroom, Nami who's showering and Usopp & Chopper who're in the entrance
! チョッパー「人間の女の裸には興味ないけど・・・ドクトル・ホグバックの研究室は覗いてみてェ な～～～」
Chopper: I'm not interested in naked female humans… but I really wanna peek into Doktor Hogback's lab~~!!
Usopp: Soo, Nami… you're like a kid who's afraid of going to the bathroom at night... why do we have to guard you in the bathroom
Nami: I felt so dirty when the zombies touched me. When it's night we're leaving
Usopp: What are you saying you idiot! opens the curtain and gets a bucket thrown at
! ウソップ「せっかく泊めてくれるって言ってんだぞ。夜中外に出たらどうなるかくらいお前分かる だろ！？
Usopp: I mean we got shelter here after all. When we go out at night, you understand what could happen!? In any case us!! It's that we won't move. Luffy and the others will surely come to rescue us.
! ナミ「中も外も同じよ、屋敷の中をちゃんと見渡した？廊下も部屋も・・・私の勘が正しければ・ ・・
Nami: Inside or outside is the same. Didn't you take a look at this mansion? The corridors and the rooms… if my sixth sense is right...
Usocho: Heeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! Wha– what was it?? [the same shocked sound they made earlier which made Nami scared too XD]
Nami: The most suspicious one is that Hogback himself..!! He's lying. If that man [including Cindry] and the zombies weren't connected in some way he surely wouldn't live in this mansion or even on this island!! Anyways, even if you didn't notice his behavior let's get out of here when it gets night.
Gurururu…. you're a smart woman...
Nami: Usopp, Chopper, have you said something!?
Usopp: ?? We said nothing
! ナミ「！ え！？何？・・・・手が！！」
Nami: !! EH!? What? ….. a hand!!
It looks like Nami leaves the bath
"BITA-!" (Nami gets pushed to the wall) ナミ「あっ！！？何これ・・・・！！誰もいないのに・・・！！！！」
Nami: Ah.!!? What is this…!! But there's nobody...!!!!!!
???: Better than the woman on the ship… garuru... I favor the weak....
Nami: Usopp!!! Cho–---vm gets her mouth hold closed
???: You…. become our bride...!!!
Usopp: Hey Nami, what's going on!?
! カーテン開ける 目の前には全裸のナミ
when opening the curtain he gets a full view of naked Nami
Usopp: WHOOOW!!! THANK YOU
Chopper: Huh you thanked her!!
Nami: Somebody's in here!!
Chopper: Yeah, I can smell him!!!
Something flees through the window
Usopp: Hissatsu kayakuboshi!!! (Certain kill "Gunpowder Star")
Bathroom explosion [What?]
Usopp: …. hey, Nami, what was that... what's the meaning of this!!!
Nami: All this time there was an… invisible man in here!
The scene changes to Luffy and the gang
Sanji: Well, we can't help but stay put. Since this ship is haunted by a big cloud it seems we can't escape. That skeleton jerk's ghost ship too… Even around the Mini Merry Usopp, Chopper and Nami the cloud floats...
Zoro: Actually I think it's nothing less than calculated, from our location the entrance of the island is calling out… it looks like the ghosts are beckoning us.
Luffy: Since we have the spare time here, let's go!! Because then there'll be more lunch packs, shishishi!!
Luffy and the others land. First they just walk around
Luffy: Geh, what's in this moat?
Kerberos: Woof!! Woof!! Gooohn!!
Sanji: Wow… a kerberos..? We must be on the direct way to hell
Robin: Aww it's cute
Franky: He wanna brawl?
Zorro: Pretty audacious…
Luffy: I wonder if it's yummy?
! ケルベロス「！！？ エ～～～～～～ッ！！？（真っ青）」
Kerberos: !!? EHHHH!!!? pale
! I've noticed some missing lines while reading the manga.
Page 08 - Right after "Cindry" says : "Well if you say so… today as an exception three people may enter.", Usopp asks why he's the only one that cannot enter, but says let's go inside anyway, and Nami comments that it's better than outside with the zombies.
Page 09 and 10 are missing completely. They ask about all the zombies outside and Hogback says something about how he had to dissapear to learn the ways of manipulating life and death.
Page 12, top: Nami looks angry at Usopp and Chopper and shouts it's better to eat with a spoon. The 3 dudes (not clear if all of them from the image) think it's sweet and good.
And yes, it's pretty clear Hogback is the one worried about a skeleton.
There are more lines missing on page 13, but I don't have time or enough knowledge to keep going, so I'd say better wait for a full translation.
! Don't quote me for anything here, just very sketchy translations here.
awesome cant wait till scan
thanks a lot. luffy in the colorspread is absolutely kickass.
Awesome. Thanks B-F and Ivotas.
Ok we can now see on the scans that it's not Cindry that may know Brook, but Hogback. He's the one thinking to himself "is he talking about him… no it couldn't be...". So no (apparent) relationship between Cindry and Brook, but clearly one between Brook and Hogback, so he may be the one who stole his shadow... Anyway I guess no more reason for Brook to stay behind
I know it's still far away, but assuming that Hogback is the main villain and for sure Luffy will fight him: How might Hogback fight? He surely doesn't look like the type to fight himself, so maybe he will rely on weapons or ride a giant monster. What do you think?
Sanji would be wishing that he was in Usopp's place instead.
http://www.gigasize.com/get.php/420920/OP_446.rarSpread joined, a little better quality [maybe HQ].You can't miss Nami's face in the bath. __ Best face ever.Thanks for posting the translation Kanemaki.
Is Usopp's helm in the color spread based on, or the same as Dorry or Broggys? It certainly reminds me of them. And I think it's a rifle or cannon Franky's wearing on his back, not a bazooka, hence the gunbelt. Didn't one of the shipwrights from Galley-La wear the same get up? Tilestone or one of them.
Also, since someone already mentioned this, the way I see the fights matching up at the moment are:
Luffy v Hogback - This one's a lock from the get go.
Zoro v ???
Sanji V Invisible Man - He likes to prey on weak women, and molest them, you'd better believe Sanji wants to trounce his ass. He can probably use his cigarettes to "smoke" him out. Or possibly smoke from his fiery leg move, if it can produce it.
Usopp v Hildon - He's a vampire, Usopp's wearing vampire hunting gear. He flies, Usopp's the only one who could really hit him.
Nami v ???
Chopper v Kerebros - Both beasts. And Chopper needs to over come his fear of him as well I suppose. Even though Nami and Usopp were afraid of him too.
Robin v Cindry - She just looks like a brawler, who has a plate destroying fetish - thus Robin is more suited to fight her out of the two women on the crew.
Franky v ???
Thanks for the new chapter BF from the posts it seems that this probably going to be an arc focusing on Nami, Usopp & Choppper which is something I hope, though I can't hope that Luffy won't be the one to save the day as always, but I'll keep that thought up.
Okay, now Brooke AND Hogback have distinct laughs. So who's the villian here? All evidence points to Hogback, from what the zombies, the ghosts, and everything else has been telling us. But with Oda, you never know…
Ok, now that I've seen Hogback, I don't trust him at all.
Man, I almost feel sorry for that cerberus thing. It doesn't stand a chance.
Thanks to everyone, particularly BF, for bringing this chapter.
Dr. Hogback…is interesting. For some reason when I saw him, he looked like a fusion of a vampire, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, Jack Skellington...and for some reason the Millenium Earl, don't ask. Oh, and more naked Nami is a good thing, as is Hogback's assistant, more ghosts...and Luffy's crew scaring the Cerberus at the end. (then again, we've got five great pirates and Franky with what looks like a bazooka at the end, so I guess Thriller Bark may not be as scary...)
Oh, and the cover page is the coolest I've ever seen Luffy...he needs shades more often.
For some odd and twisted reason I have yet to explain, aka a feeling, I don't think this arc will have a main villian. I am hoping, that they crew will just get lost in the mansion or something to that extent. But hopefully nothing like scooby doo considering that would be a bit odd. BTW, thanks BF for the chapter.
I agree with all of those people debating a major villian in this arc
I just don't see Hogback fighting Luffy
or anyone beyond "Team Useless" (Chopper, Usopp, Nami)
I could see that happening
…I really hope during Usopp's fight he changes into Sogeking, just to see the reactions he'll get from Chopper and Nami
it'll be priceless
Thanks like always, BF!
goes to see if a new avatar awaits him
