One Piece Chapter 914 Review
Welcome to my review for One Piece Chapter 914 of One Piece
The cover page continues the story of the self-proclaimed Straw Hat Fleet with its 42ndvolume. There’s a man in a cape arriving at Dyed-Cloth City. The city reminds me of Windmill Village. I don’t know for certain the identity of that individual. However, he looks like Shanks or maybe even Sabo. Only time will tell the readers the identity of that man and if that city is or has anything to do with Windmill Village. All in all, this cover story has taken an interesting turn of events.
This chapter begins where the last chapter left off. However, the scene shifts from the Heart Pirates to Luffy’s group. Otama feels better thanks to the herbs mentioned by Otsuru in the last chapter. However, the poison has not been removed from her body.
Okiku is treating Zoro’s wounds. As he’s being treated, Zoro notices and reacts to Kiku’s huger than normal appearance. In response to Zoro’s reaction, Luffy says that Big Mom is much more gigantic in size.
What is this power? Why is she able to grow 3 meters in height? What purpose would this fact serve?
Tsuru offers Tama some porridge but Tama is hesitant to eat it since she doesn’t have any money with her.
To eliminate Tama’s hesitation, Tsuru says that if she (Tama) doesn’t eat it, she (Tsuru) will merely throw the food away. Tama decides to eat the food and cries because she finds it delicious.
Tama notices that the food she’s eating has Mochi in it. Luffy, then, asks the question that some people have been wondering since Tama’s debut: If she (Tama) can pop Mochi from her cheeks, then why doesn’t she utilize it when she’s hungry? The answer: It’s not enough to quell her hunger.
As Tama is eating, Tsuru states that children like Tama can now be found all over Wano since the shogun of Wano has taken over.
Otsuru asks Luffy and Zoro of their identities. Zoro says that he’s Zorojuro. As Luffy attempts to himself as Monkey D. Luffy, the man who’ll be the Pirate King, Zoro interrupts. Zoro says that he, referring to Luffy, is Luffytaro.
Luffy’s Wano alias has finally been introduced. However, Tsuru quickly notices that Luffy and Zoro are foreigners. She also tells them not to fret as no one will rat them out.
Zoro proceeds to ask Tsuru why this town, Okobare, is commonly referred to as a “Town of Leftovers.” Tsuru replies, saying that all things in Okobore are leftovers from the town where the Government officials currently reside.
Tsuru also explains that the Kozuki clan has been the ruling family of Wano Kingdom until over 20 years before the present story.
Oden, who is now deceased, built a massive plantation to provide his people who live in Kuri with food for sustenance.
This plantation that Oden built (or ordered to build) now belongs to Kurozumi Orochi who shares it with Kaido. Now everyone who resists the shogun of Wano (or possibly everyone) must purchase rotten ingredients from the shogun to eat. This fact just goes to show how selfish is Orochi.
Upon revealing the internal circumstances of Wano, a man and Gifter of the Animal Kingdom Pirates who ate a bat SMILE Devil Fruit. Batman is now part of the _One Piece_story. Another possibility is that Man-Bat is part of the _One Piece_story. The translation I read before reading the official Viz translation literally referred to him as “Batman.”
Joking aside, Batman has the ears and wings of a bat. Batman shoots an arrow at Otsuru because his bat ability allows him to hear Otsuru speaking ill of the current shogun of Wano.
Zoro blocks said arrow with his sword. In response, Batman continues to shoot arrows aimed at Tsuru, but Zoro easily blocks them all.
Batman explains to them that his bat ability allows him to hear 6 times better than the average human and that Orochi doesn’t tolerate anyone who bad mouths him. Batman additionally states that they’re currently hunting down thieves who stole from the plantation a few ago.
While Zoro was blocking Bat Gifter’s arrows, another Gifter, a Gazelle Gifter, abducts Otama. Gazelleman states that he has the ability to run at a speed of 200 kilometers per hour. In response, Okiku grabs her katana and follows Gazelleman. Luffy and Zoro follow her. They’re riding the komainu.
Gazelleman is heading to the Government official district. Kiku states that located there are 3 headliners, including Hawkins, Holdem, and as well as 30 artificial SMILE users are located.
Kiku read this from a notebook she’s holding and is asked of her identity to which she says that she’s a samurai. I did not expect Kiku to be a samurai. I thought she was a secret princess or something of the sort, but I was wrong.
Gazelleman contacts Headliner Holdem to inform them that he’s captured Tama. Holdem appears to be a lion. Is he a lion mink? Is he a lion SMILE user? Is he a lion Devil Fruit user? I think he’s a lion zoan Devil Fruit user. I think the headliners each have actual Devil Fruit abilities.
Kiku warns them that they’re about to enter the Bakura district where the government officials and pirates reside. As such, Luffy and Zoro smile, thereby shocking Kiku.
The scene shifts from Luffy’s group to Law’s group. Bepo has informed Law that Luffy and Zoro are heading to the official’s town. Luffy and Zoro shock Law so much so he decides to try to prevent them from reaching there since it’s nothing but trouble.
All in all, this chapter is a great One Piece chapter. The pacing is not slowing down; in fact, it’s only picking up. Tama’s better, Batman is in One Piece, readers find out about the dark origins of the “Town of Leftovers,” Luffy gets his Wano name, and Kiku’s a samurai. Moreover, Luffy, Zoro, and Kiku are about to raid the Bakura district and Law is going to try to stop them. Things are riling up. All of these facts are reasons I give this chapter a rating of 9/10.
