Like 40 chapters ago when they were all fighting Kaidou and Big Mom at the same time, Big mom fried Luffy with lightning and went "Wha?"
"I'm made of rubber!"
Which we all knew and accepted.
And then immediately after, Kaidou blasts him and goes "What, fire doesn't work either? " And Luffy yells out "cause I've got guts!"
And we rolled with it because its Luffy and funny and awesome and it was connected to the thing we already knew and accepted and it was just a quick thing in an action scene, and we didn't think about it.
(We also got red hawk a decade ago and never any explanation for it beyond what we ourselves decided.)
to be fair…shonen manga logic is very much "guts" or do it with "DON!"....we don't necessarily needed a DF to explain it away. Like how Sanji doesn't need to be lunarian to explain his fire power (but he probably got spliced with lunarian dna b/c his dad probably got dna samples from king).
I don´t have an issue with the awakened power allowing him to bounce back the beam. It´s believable given what we knew about awakening affecting others.
I have a big problem with Luffy behaving as if on shrooms.
I can´t get over the fact that this guy I´ve adored for dunno how many years came back from the dead to turn into a batshit crazy psycho who ROTFLMAO during an important fight when hundreds are being killed and burned alive a few meters below.
On the other side, we have a drunk.
Crackhead vs drunk.
Two of the worst types of losers I stay away from IRL and definitely something I didn´t need to see depicted in my favorite manga.
There is nothing funny to me about Kaidos drunk states .
lol right? this is why you don't do drugs kids! or do it in a safe manner not where the fate of a country depends on it! But seriously, had the same though about him on shrooms
! > So much of Skypiea has been brought back to life recently, and these two panels here are more relevant than ever too.
two of my favorite panels/pages of all of the entire mangae are the galleon one you linked, and the dancing once around the fire (skypedia again). I don't know why I was always drawn to that fire dance with wolves and having soup, bit was epitomized OP for me. And i'm glad it had some significance now too.
