This chapter was awesome! so many good stuff, but what actually took for me was Franky and Sanji at the end. Franky is born to be awesome: within minutes of meeting strangers he already has them doing the "Super" pose.
If Kuma knows/has been at the places he sent Strawhats, what the hell is his relationship with Kamabakka kingdom?! o_o
You know, I don't really think Kuma knows all of these Islands. Like most people said before me, I think it as to do with Kuma's question: "where would you like to go?" I'm thinking that if Kuma has the power to extract weariness and pain out of somebody, surely he can send them where they subconsciously want to go. After all it makes sense when you think about it.
Luffy: "A place with lots of strong people." Why not "A place where I could get stronger"? Somehow I don't think he would have ended on Kuja Island then. He probably wanted to go somewhere with meet strong people. An Island full of Haki using Amazons fits the bill pretty well, don't you think? At least, better than any marine infested Island could, I guess.
I'm also with the people saying that Luffy will learn about Haki while going to Impel Down with Hancock. I think things might get a little too hectic once they reach the prison for him to learn anything then.
Nami: "A place where I can learn more about navigating/weather." Simple enough. I'm guessing her upgrade has something to do with wind, obviously. Genuine Tornado tempo anyone?
Franky: I'm thinking "A place where I can upgrade myself/the Ship." Makes sense to me. Obvious upgrade. I'm also thinking he'll pick up many ideas on how to upgrade their ship.
Sanji: This one actually bit him back. He probably wanted to go somewhere full of "young maiden hearts". See where that gets him? u__u'. I'm actually wishing this is the place where Bon Kurei lived. He'll probably meet a kick using martial artist user there if it's true.
As for the others, here's my guess at where they might want to go and might end up as well as possible upgrades:
Chopper: "I want to go somewhere where I can become more helpful." comes to mind. Since Chopper already comes from a Island already made famous for it's doctors, I want to see him go either on a animal only Island or and Island full of Shaman/Witch Doctors.
Obviously most people think is upgrade would be to master is "monster point", but I don't really like that aspect. In fact I really hope this is the last time we see Chopper in that form. I mean, the fact that it was useless in the last fight would have to make Chopper realize that "monster point" isn't such a good option anymore (but obviously he won't seeing he probably won't remember a thing). In terms of combat capability, Chopper is a more potent fighter with rumble ball. Being able to figure out an enemy's weak point and being able to deal enough damage. I think Chopper as one of the best fighting styles in One Piece
I want him to learn how to make a new type of rumble ball. This one will obviously last longer. Or maybe he will make one with a permanent effect. But What I really want is a "ninth" form. One that could mix brain, jumping and arm point.
Robin: "somewhere to learn more about history seems more likely." It might also be somewhere where I can gain more knowledge." After all she's always been Luffy's personal encyclopedia. Anyways only Oda knows what kind of upgrade she will have once we see her again, But I'm thinking she'll end up in a Island like Ohara or maybe the WG secret library or something.
Zoro: "Somewhere I can become stronger"… hum it might also be "Somewhere I can become stronger". I think the fact that he's always thinking about that makes it obvious that he'll become stronger when we'll see him again. As to where he might end up, your guess is good as mine. That guy can pretty much use anything for his training.
Brook: I won't even pretend I want to know where he wants to go. I really don't think I know enough about him to speculate that. But whoever said he might learn to "chant" for his allies might be on to something. Could also very well be that he'll end up with being able to fight using his violin alone like the Violinist of Hameln, but obviously better. That would be awesome IMO
Usopp (My fav character): "Somewhere where I can be brave(r)". He'll definitely end up on a island full of scary/strong people/monsters. He might meet Perona there too. That would be funny. On the other hand, he might end up in a "Sniper Island" of somesorts since Oda has a knack for changing his lies into truths. But if it's truly sniper Island I wonder what he could learn there. Since his aim and eyesight are allready top notch.
His upgrades… hmm. I'm definitely hopping for a new weapon: So far the only thing Kabuto has been able to with it's many dials are pretty looking projectiles consisteing of either fire or explsions stronger than his fire star. I got nothing against Usopp being the weakest SH (sobs) but he sould be atleast able to hurt people. I'm hoping for a better use of his dials. But what I really hope for is that Usopp learns a new fighting style. You know, it's one thing to be called "Sogeking" it's another to fight like one. Usopp Should learn means to hide and confuse people better. In the end sogeking should be some one who shouldn't be seen until after it's too late or something. Oh, and I hope he uses some of the stuff he used agaist Luffy (with a little dial upgrade of course).
I don't think we'll have time to dwell on their actions for long, as it had been previously said, but I expect them to be reunited with Luffy at Impel Down. It might be that they'll meet on SA before hand, guess about Luffy wherabouts and go there to help him out. We'll have additional info on what happened to them while they are be fighting.
Whew that was longer than I though -__-'
