I was reviewing earlier chapter when I found something that interested me greatly:
Fairly early on the series (around chapter 70 or so), it is revealed that Arlong is as strong as one of the Seven God Pirates, namely Jinbei, his former captain. What does this mean then, in the long run? Does it mean that Luffy will easily hand Jinbei his ass on a platter when he finally shows up? Or was there another part of the manga where Jinbei's nature is more fully revealed?
Or is this whole thing a complete error in translation and should be disregarded?
