"The artificially engineered devil fruit was a failure because he's pink."
Pure gold. How long ago did Oda set this joke up? 300 chapters ago?
I am loving this arc. Bring all the exposition. With the giants (and Elbaf presumably being the next island) being linked to the revolutionaries, fish-men not only being (re-)connected to Mary Joa but also to the lost civilization(?), and Vegapunk continuing to casually tease the Void Century, it seems that Oda is really gearing up for endgame. How many years left of his five-year-plan?
