Another week, another chapter. Hopefully this one will be a little more eventful than last weeks. My thoughts on Chapter 643:
The Monkey Brothers and Captain Cricket are looking for Phantom Island? Uhh, why? Interesting though, seeing as how the chapter is named Phantom.
Yes, we start off with everybody fighting! And Robin immediately starts freeing the slaves as Jinbe told her to last chapter. Very reliable, that Robin.
Uhm, is there something going on between Robin and Jinbe that I`m not aware of? "Handsome man"? Are there any Jinbe and Robin shippers? I guess there will be some now.
Oh, Hammond, I almost feel sorry for you, if you hadn
t been such an ass last week. But Robin isnt just able to clone herself now…..she actually seems to be able to teleport herself through her duplicates.
I guess she killed him. That looked incredible painful.
Ha, Brook spotted him, because he loudly proclaimed the name of the attack!Thats what you manga characters get now for doing that all the time!
Even Brook thinks Zeo is silly.
It`s Soooooooooooouuuuuuuuuuuul! So, did I get this right? The energy of other people souls helps Brook stay alive even when his head is separated?
Damn, Brooks finally being badass. Soul Sword is awesome. :wub:I would have figured the Underworld is pretty warm, though.
I like this better, we still don
t get the whole fight, only glimpses. But its more detailed and the scenes are a bit longer. Feels much more eventful than last chapter, where we just jumped around a bit too much.
Oh God, Usopp! You are so manly. This is great character development, too. He doesn`t need to lie anymore, because he is badass enough to actually do what he says. That last panel on page 12....oh god. I love you, Usopp. Now finish him!
Oh...I guess we
ll have to wait until next week for the big finishing moves. I dont get why we had these big Vs. boxes if the fights are resolved this quickly. Leave those for the serious ones, like against CP9.
There we are, with people getting up to date on things. This chapter is like the second part to last weeks. Still better, though.
Octopako on page 15! She was such a bitch to Hachi. Can`t she be Namis big fight this arc?
Luffy can`t help it, he will be the big hero of Fishman Island. After that broadcats, everyone will know he saved them.
Wah, Hodis secret will be told to all of Fishman island! Ok, I`m listening...and the secret is (this better blow my mind).......
A monster born from circumstance?? Uh, can you be more specific, Brohoshi?
Oh God, that face! Thank you for giving me nightmares, Oda!
Well, bown away isn
t the right term now....so instead of a tragic past, Hodi is really just a mindless monster. This may seem anticlimatic, but think about it. If there was some specific thing in Hodis past that made him such a crazy evil bastard, that would maybe make him more three dimensional, but this is more poigant. There is so much resentment and hatred, they dont even need personal experiences, which means that, if this cycle of hatred continues, there could be countless monsters like Hodi in the future. Fisher Tiger hated humans for personal reasons, because he witnessed and experienced their racism. But the New Fishman Pirates don
t ned that anymore, they are filled with hate of their ancestors, they dont need reason.
Still, that face of Hodi shudders
