Damn, the plot for just this Arc could be the one for THE FREAKING END of the manga !
I mean… Warriors from a samurai's kingdom + Luffy's crew + Whitebeard's Captains + Minks... Against one single man.
If Weevil took down 16 captain already, then who is left ? Marco obviously... Maybe Vista? Jozu? Izou ? Fossa ? If that so, it means that only the " weaks " allies of WB were killed, so it's all good.
I really hope to see Whitebeard's remnants as part of the Alliance, that'd be EPIC !
I love how Nami is being praised in this chapter, she's part of the crew that's underestimated and not under the spotlights, so it's cool to see that !
And damn... Oda is a Genius ! We almost all forget that they have to use the Log Pose to set sail... And then again, he introduces something even bigger to justify that they " don't need it " ( matter of speech ) anymore... Love that !
This Arc is like the Bible of the Ancients.. So much informations on Roger/WB/VoidCentury.. !
Oh by the way, don't you think Oden just sitched crew just because of his ability, and Whitebeard just didn't want to go to Raftel ? I mean, he only wanted a family, and as Doflamingo said, he choose to bow before Roger, not fight agaisnt him. So, maybe Roger knew Oden was from this clan and all, and Oden decided that Roger was the best choice for him to know what his ancestors did, and why they did that
