I wish I know how Kishimoto did with Naruto and what do you mean by the book?
Oh and Kumadori almost killed Nami if it was not for Chopper. If Blueno did not get knocked away, he'll mayby take on Chopper and Nami would have been killed, Zoro and Sogeking would be in deeper shit with Kaku and Jyabura
If Chopper had an opponent then something else would have happened to save Nami, say Blueno using one of his air doors that transports Chopper right on top of Kumodori. Or Chopper knocking Blueno through a wall into Kumodori. There are plenty of ways for Nami to have gotten saved, Oda-sensei just went with this route but there are plenty of other options.
As for Zoro and Sogeking…...... how is the situation any different? Chopper, right now, is being preoccupied and can't even do anything to help them out anymore until after he beats up Kumodori. Which is probbly the reason why Oda-sensei did this, to have the Zoro/Kaku and Usopp/Jyubura fight for last.
At least with Blueno coming back at this point, it'll make things more even without leaving anyone out. Sanji inteferes with the cat fight, and fights the she-devil on behalf of Nami for what she said, or at least what his love-struck brain interpreted. Then Nami goes over to help out Chopper since Kumodori is semi-dominating, after awhile of beating hit by both major moves of Chopper and Nami, Kumodori goes down for the count.......
But then Blueno comes in through his air door and uses Rankyuku on Chopper knocking him away. When Nami yells out in surprise, Kumodori revives saying something about how he can't disappoint his mother in heaven and fights Nami, who at this point, is forced to use her experimental Dial-Rod. Meanwhile Chopper has his hands-full with the ticked-off Blueno, who can't believe he got owned by a rubber punk.
I already know of a way that Sanji can "fight" without breaking his gentleman ways, but it's at the expense of Kalifa's pride and strength, basically it punks her out...... but then again her devil's power could make everything different.
This is how I would do it, I just wonder how an expert like Oda-sensei would handle things without making anyone lose face.
Also you don't want to know how Kishimoto is handling Naruto....... pure rip-off of DBZ anyone? Also by the book, at least to me, means power-up after power-up, long ass boring speeches, life revivals, etc. At least Oda-sensei pulls something new out of his butt like Chibi-Luffy and Kaku-Giraffe, totally blowing us away while still keeping our interest.
If you're going to just bring someone back to life, just don't kill them in the first place. It may get ridiculous as to how much damage some people can take and still live (Pell, and Luffy) at least there'll be no crappy revivals.
Wow, sorry for the long post, I just like writing down storylines and ideas.
