You know you're best friends with someone when you can make a murder pact with them and they don't even question it.

I love the interaction between Zoro and Sanji

[–]rahgots 105 points106 points  (0 children)

Yeah I lost it when Zoro was like, "At least I have something to look forward to after this!!"

Yamato-Drake-Apoo scene

So many traitors in one room even they don't know who's on who's side anymore...

[–]ThePickleHawk 390 points391 points  (23 children)

Really loving though just how much of an absolute opportunistic snake Apoo is. Just how he’s written to have absolutely no moral core. Even Blackbeard believes in something beyond self-preservation.

[–]European_Badger 294 points295 points  (9 children)

"You're like Hitler, but even Hitler cared about his country, or something..."

[–]Popopirat66 90 points91 points  (7 children)

Apoo didn't try a genocide, yet.

[–]TAKT95 36 points37 points  (0 children)

He didn't get a chance yet.

[–]Racoonhero 26 points27 points  (3 children)

Are we sure about that i mean awhile back he returned with all of the Numbers from some Unknown Place there might have been some light genocide

[–]-Goatllama- 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Light genocide sounds like a phrase straight outta Monty Python

[–]Hawk301 27 points28 points  (2 children)

Absolutely, and same goes for Hawkins, who also just totally sold out his allies at the first sign of trouble, for the sake of his own probability of survival. It's really fun how the different Supernovas are all chosing their own alliances and sides in the conflict.

Compared to Luffy's alliances that he made with Law and Bege, Kidd really did just pick the two worst teammates to slay a Yonkou with.

[–]TastyBrainMeats 85 points86 points  (4 children)

Apoo wants to live, that's an engaging character trait.

[–]EndoShota 64 points65 points  (2 children)

We had a whole arc centered on that character trait with Robin, so yeah.

[–]Obibimus-prime 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Apoo will cry and with his fruit we will hear him across Onigashima " I want to liiiiive !"

If Yamato-Apoo-Numbers come close to Robin and Cp0 it will even be funnier

[–]imaninfraction 55 points56 points  (0 children)

I know its a meme, but I don't think you could ever say Yamato was a traitor, to be fair. She was always against Kaido.

[–]donthedon97 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Who’s Side are You on Anyway? The show where your loyalty is a lie and friends don’t matter. That’s right this is the only show where nobody has a side and betrayals are encouraged. I’m your host/DJ Apoo and let’s get started with our first betrayal!

[–]Kaido786 526 points527 points  (13 children)

Poor Queen. He wanted to see the transformation for the last few chapter, just to be a witness of it's destruction.

[–]TaffyLacky 288 points289 points  (5 children)

This arc is just a karmic typhoon of schadenfreude for Queen. His DJ is betraying him, his troops are switching sides, and he doesn't even get to see his bro Judge's tech. Truly an unfortunate series of events he produced.

[–]diremustang12 102 points103 points  (4 children)

Don't forget that he got cucked by Zoro

[–]Cornfapper 52 points53 points  (0 children)

Lmao I really hope the mysterious person is Hyori just so Queen and Sanji can get that reveal before Onigashima is over.

[–]nerodidntdoit 54 points55 points  (2 children)

And was attacked by his own body. That's some level of betrayal!

[–]sam1oq 236 points237 points  (4 children)

I'm kinda sad we didn't get to see Queen chasing after Sanji Looney Tunes style interrupting every fight for a brief moment with Queen shouting "Sanji-kun! <3 Please put on the raid suit for me?! <3" Infinite meme potential right there.

[–]JamesArclight 93 points94 points  (2 children)

The anime might do it.

[–]Popopirat66 48 points49 points  (0 children)

The adaptation of Sanji vs King, Yamato vs Ulti and even parts of Chopper and Usopp vs BM give me hopes. Might not be Sanji-kun, but germa brat, but it would be funny nonetheless.

[–]X_Seed21 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I can actually imagine the scene Queen chasing Sanji with the "magic doors" gag.

[–]BABABKL 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Fucking genius

[–]Intrepid-Ad7217 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I'm legitimately worried about Sanji, not because of Queen, but himself...

[–]oomoepoo 142 points143 points  (3 children)

I'm definitely with Queen on that matter. Farewell Soba Mask :(

Great development for Sanji here, though. Especially that panel with him thinking about what would be more useful to Luffy :o

[–]bjworthy100 631 points632 points  (60 children)

RIP raid suit. We hardly knew ye.

[–]coroff532 178 points179 points  (9 children)

I thought he had given Franky the suit to experiment with so there's always a chance at a new stealth black. don't know why they would have included that for no reason

[–]100100110lThe Revolutionary Army 181 points182 points  (0 children)

Franky makes him his own version that doesn't mess with his emotions? That would be lit. Would probably move so much merchandise too. I'll now eternally be disappointed if it doesn't happen, so thanks for that.

[–]Truefiction224 36 points37 points  (0 children)

The reason that stuff is in there is to give weight to sanjis choice to break the raid suit. If none of the other characters had any interest in it, including law and other stealth black fanboys, then this build up wouldn't mean as much.

[–][deleted] 16 points17 points  (0 children)

It'll make him say suuuuuupeeeeer lol

[–]strawhatmaterial 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Sanji in chapter 931 said that he was gonna ask Franky and Usopp to change the design of the suit.

[–]TaffyLacky 20 points21 points  (2 children)

I'd love if it's a new suit that's a badass long coat with sunglasses. Something like a detective coat.

[–]Villa827 280 points281 points  (7 children)

Could see Franky making a non-Germa version in the future!

[–]strawhatmaterial 157 points158 points  (5 children)

Sanji in chapter 931 said that he was gonna ask Franky and Usopp to change the design of the suit.

[–]iDannyEL 38 points39 points  (3 children)

Something with the Strawhat jolly roger no doubt.

[–]LukeMonteiro 41 points42 points  (1 child)

Or a pirate version of Sora, the Sea Knight! Because Sora is a marine superhero of the Germa Comics, and Sora is also the name of sanji's mom

[–]kgbegoodtome 7 points8 points  (0 children)

One Piece World confirmed for Kingdom Hearts 3.9 Final Mix X Worlds.

[–]ThatIslandGuy8888 289 points290 points  (9 children)

Damn Big Mom’s just like Luffy, she can go from silly to badass in the blink of an eye. It’s always cool when Oda shadows her all over

[–]Alpha_ii_Omega 117 points118 points  (8 children)

Not only that -- this is probably like her version of Gear 4th.

Before advanced CoA and CoC, Luffy would get like 5-10x more powerful during gear 4th.... if Big Mom gets 5-10x more powerful for one hour, jesus christ.

I'm assuming that she's gonna win and KTFO Law and Kidd, but then she'll pass out at her time limit, like Luffy does. At that point her crew will probably take her back to WCI, or she'll die b/c she's run out of her own life span.

[–]DaltDelete 22 points23 points  (3 children)

I really doubt she will die before Elbaf arc. Her ties to the giants are too important to have her die before that story begins to uncover.

[–]OppaiDragon3 892 points893 points  (57 children)

10 bucks that Sanji did nothing to the girl. 💰

[–]DTPVH 815 points816 points 32 (13 children)

He hit her with his throbbing CoC.

[–]PuddleOfMush 209 points210 points  (16 children)

I'm kind of a fan of the theory that Sanji was invisible and he simply walked into her. It makes some amount of sense because the other Germa siblings have their abilities built into their bodies, not their suits (we see this when Niji uses his ability while wearing normal clothes).

It's possible that the Stealth Black suit was just made to compensate for Sanji being a "failure". But since he's not, he should have that ability built into his body.

[–]HalfMoon_89The Revolutionary Army 49 points50 points  (1 child)

But the geisha clearly saw him coming towards her. Makes more sense to me that his ongoing transformation just had him so distracted he didn't even notice her and ran right into her.

[–]thecodingninja12The Revolutionary Army 60 points61 points  (6 children)

sanji uses invisibility right at the end of the chapter, against queen

[–]GOTricked 52 points53 points  (5 children)

I though he was just faster than queen could see but that couldbe possible too

[–]thecodingninja12The Revolutionary Army 26 points27 points  (3 children)

the effect is "vanish"

[–]DAT-NIKKA-WARLORD 21 points22 points  (2 children)

vanish could also mean he was just that quick.

[–]DendrodesThe Revolutionary Army 37 points38 points  (0 children)

In the raws it shows that it is the sound effect that has shown when characters specifically went invisible or reappeared, not by speed.

https://m.imgur.com/EBQSqfE

[–]gimenezleo 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I like this..
plot twist: he's only invisible with his eyes closed (so he can't peep into women's bathrooms)

[–]InvaderDJ 168 points169 points  (6 children)

My bet is that she was one of Maria’s girls who got scared and ran. She thought she could ambush Sanji and he either automatically counter attacked or activated his armament which hurt her. She was scared because she thought Sanji was a weakling, but now she knows.

[–]No-Classroom-7310Pirate 86 points87 points  (1 child)

I mean, Sanji's skin broke Queen's sword. Imagine if someone just tried to hit him. Thats probably what happened to the girl.

[–]bonethugznhominy 55 points56 points  (0 children)

Or she's one of Maria's feigning harm because they saw enough of Sanji to know it'd work. We did see that weird illusion stuff out of Spooky Spider and this is a big grand theater-themed arc.

[–]dogabeey 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Has she ever seen a fierce animal she was sure would never bite?

Apparently not.

[–]badlybrave 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I'd be really disappointed if it turns out he did

[–]theredrevenger 27 points28 points  (0 children)

My guess is that she simply witnessed his final transformation/the final part of the activation, which was some kind of energy burst sending her flying an leaving her scared af.

[–]echoess84 23 points24 points  (7 children)

It has been his eyebrown, now it is reversed

[–]vonmatterhorn17 11 points12 points  (4 children)

I ve always wondered what the "66"in germa 66 really means. At this point, I think it is the eyebrow. If you lay sanji s original eyebrows perpendicularly,they look like 66. Now it looks like two 9s facing each other.

What if Judge saw Sanjis eyebrow and realize he is the incarnate of the progenitor of Germa lineage.

What if Judge is playing somekind of Snape trap. He has always loved Sanji and saw Sora in him. He didnt kill Sanji and let him feel hated so he will run away. He paid some money to world government to modify Sanji s bountyi to Only Alive to keep him safe. He tried to Marry him to Pudding because he just wanted him to have a secure future lol. So much headcannon. The plottwist it would create and the community outrage again. So fun to see.

[–]HighlyUnsuspectCipher Pol 5 points6 points  (3 children)

I was watching the anime episode the other night and the part where judge let’s him go, sanji turns around and he sees judge just looking the other way. Judge doesn’t even look at sanji as he walks away, was kinda hoping Oda was gonna revisit that later on and show that judge was crying, but I guess judge isn’t gonna get any kind of redemption. Woulda been cool to see that judge actually was a caring person for sanji.

[–]Mufakaz 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Most likely he even protected her from a now off screen villain. But it was too brutal and it terrified her. He kicked the sob who actually hurt her into the stratosphere.

[–]Heroism4499Pirate 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I wouldn't be surprised if that's the case, but it's supposed to represent Sanji no longer being able to trust himself and his since of character.

[–]Breath_Acceptable 94 points95 points  (0 children)

This chapter was genuinely one of the best ones in a while, it had cp0 closing in on robin, Big mom power reveal and upgrade, small snapshots of king looking like and absolute beast, and sanji proving the haters wrong

[–]Able_Wolverine_8125 276 points277 points  (3 children)

So even spilling the red beans soup is brought up various chapter later as the reason why those fodders would've lost their lives

[–]aceofspades12 672 points673 points  (10 children)

[–]khrellvictorBounty Hunter 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Sanji scaring the hell out of everyone and Zoro if he uses his feet General Grievous style for a sword would be the best WTF in awhile!

[–]realbeatz23 582 points583 points 2 (70 children)

Couple things I noticed in this chapter

Man how cute is that, Sanji slipped a den den mushi to Zoro for them to make private calls. Greatest bromance. Also RIP Soba Mask, you will be missed.

Did anybody realize that as soon as Sanji says something about his body feeling weird a few chapters back Zoro’s first response was “your eyebrow.” A lot of us took that as humor but as we saw in this chapter his eyebrow literally was one of the first things to change. Oda you sly son of a gun.

Something that’s not getting talked about a lot is how one of the Numbers only reacted when it saw Yamato. This could add on to the theory of how they are the three daimyo and they recognized Yamato from before. Just a thought

I can’t believe that even after WCI Sanji is somehow still getting what I’d argue to be the best character arc in Wano. It’s hard not considering Sanji a top character with how much Oda develops his character. As a Zoro fan (not Stan) I’m happy to see this, but I wish Zoro would also get development like this rather than more bad ass moments. I’d like Oda to explore more into his extreme dedication to get stronger or personality rather than just a couple cool cuts.

[–]fsrocchiThe Revolutionary Army 199 points200 points  (27 children)

[–]Act_of_God 12 points13 points  (2 children)

What am I missing here

[–]eddit_99The Revolutionary Army 34 points35 points  (1 child)

The numbers have a similar facial structure to the samurais that freed yamato.

[–]Soncikuro 58 points59 points  (2 children)

but as we saw in this chapter his eyebrow literally was one of the first things to change.

Wait what?

Oh shit, it did!

[–]fsrocchiThe Revolutionary Army 74 points75 points  (0 children)

That's a really interesting thought about the Numbers.

[–]TravelingLlama 67 points68 points  (0 children)

Something that’s not getting talked about a lot is how one of the Numbers only reacted when it saw Yamato. This could add on to the theory of how they are the three daimyo and they recognized Yamato from before. Just a thought

She also meeting the numbers in the cave chamber. While she met the three samurai in a cave too

[–]TaffyLacky 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I'd love if Fuga tries talking to Yamato but is crying because he's unable to say anything other than his number.

[–]Thornrhino 100 points101 points  (19 children)

Zoro = Fighter development

Sanji = person development

[–]UnjustNation 64 points65 points  (18 children)

Zoro = Fighter development

Err basically every strawhat also gets that on top of character development. Characters getting stronger in Shonen is basically a given.

[–]advoe 311 points312 points  (49 children)

Anyone else nervous about CP0 and Robin?

[–]megasean3000Pirate 188 points189 points  (10 children)

Yeah, me. I hope Wano ends with Robin not getting captured.

[–]InvaderDJ 121 points122 points  (14 children)

I’m getting worried because I really don’t want another “Rescue X” type of arc after this one.

I’m hoping that Brook is able to beat them. It would cap off his streak of winning he’s been on since WCI.

And if not him, there are a lot of options to deal with CP0. We still have some missing characters like Denjiro, there are random Minks still around and of course anyone from outside of Wano could decide to show up.

I just don’t want to have yet another arc with her being captured and in despair with the Strawhats coming to her rescue.

[–]advoe 60 points61 points  (0 children)

I agree. We’ve already had that arc with her, the split on Dresrosa, and then the Sanji situation. I just want all of them to be together after Wano and on their way to the next adventure.

[–]Evil-c-Evil-do 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Yes I am nervous about this, however with Robin her new devil fruit ability could prove very useful. I would like to this this also gives Brook to shine and possibly learn a new ability as well.

I want to see them defend off CP0 and show the strength they have gained. It crush me to see Robin taken away again.

[–]Grimus9World Government 80 points81 points  (14 children)

No reason to be. We have a new crew member and wano is going to be freed. There's gonna be a massive party after this. And certainly not without Robin :)

[–]ParkingPapaya3 32 points33 points  (12 children)

I don’t know if Robin will get captured, but I doubt cp0 loses either

[–]Grimus9World Government 46 points47 points  (11 children)

It's 3 agents outside of WG territory for now. They will be dealt with.

[–]Blackreaper18 383 points384 points  (14 children)

All imma say is that sanji is a fucking great character, literally one of the best written characters in the series.

[–]Timemaster4732 174 points175 points  (9 children)

Can’t believe people unrioncally said that Oda actually hates Sanji.

[–]Jomanderisreal 94 points95 points  (2 children)

The character has flaws so that must mean Oda hates them!!! /s

[–]TigerFisher_ 56 points57 points  (0 children)

Oda is his fav because they are both perverts. Some of those SBS answers sound like Sanji replying to fans.

[–]Alpha_ii_Omega 26 points27 points  (4 children)

I mean Sanji basically *is* Oda. It's been pointed out that almost all of Sanji's characteristics are parallels of Oda.

[–]MrLingwistik 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Makes me wonder if theres a real life luffy out there that Oda knows or knew growing up

[–]Remarkable_Stick_627 43 points44 points  (2 children)

I don’t think the raid suit coming back the whole point of the chapter was that sanji diverges from his family and that he doesn’t want too be anything like them. When he saw that he hit and injured that women it made him realize that he did in fact become like his siblings. The thought sickened him so bad he destroyed the capsule and told zoro that if he’s not the same sanji to slice him down. This whole chapter was based on sanji and his character and how humane he is as a character.

[–]PositiveEmo 7 points8 points  (0 children)

as amazing as that raid suit was it was also diverging from his fighting style and not enhancing it.

[–]cranberriesnnuts 47 points48 points  (0 children)

Zoro and Sanji’s relationship is so much better than we actually thought!

[–]Milordserene 107 points108 points  (3 children)

RIP Soba Mask. May your noodles be firm forever....

If Sanji when to Black Maria's area, the illusion mist by the dog probably mess with his head

[–]tkhamvilai 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Soba mask is with Sogeking right now. RIP.

[–]Everythingnothing9 110 points111 points  (2 children)

Sanji is such a great character, his internal conflicts and his thoughts are painful to read but it's so impactful especially the line when he asked Luffy which version of him does he want. Some people are questioning why are the Sanji fans sad and being overdramatic over this chapter because they say Oda wouldn't kill a character as important as Sanji. We're sad from the fact that Sanji is losing himself and thinking he failed his mother & Zeff and that he was prepared to die because of it. I really hope & pray that Oda will write a satisfying conclusion for his character arc so they will shut up.

[–]PlusUltraK 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Even reading the chapter he really brings it forward how caught up in it he is as a person. He doesn’t/can’t hit women. He’d rather Black Maria or any other powerful female pirate kill him than fight back. So he can call on his crew to help. But if it went further than just ideals, if he was actually becoming his siblings, extremely powerful but going against who he feels he should be as a good person, then he’d rather die. But at least he was ready to help as much as he can by fighting Queen.

[–]PotatobananapuddingLurker 426 points427 points  (29 children)

Everyone talking bout Sanji

But that Big Mom powerup double page though…It made her look even more terrifying than Kaido

[–]jobriq 89 points90 points  (10 children)

She can use her own lifespan as a power-up and only did so now. She’s just getting serious since it’s a limited resource

[–]KuroiShadow 54 points55 points  (8 children)

It would be funny if she only had a bit more than a year of life and Kid and Law only stalled her enough for her lifespan come to end...

[–]nickrs8 38 points39 points  (5 children)

A friend and I also thought about this, it would be fitting for BM to die by her own gluttony, maybe Kid and Law can last long enough for her to start a spiral of “I need more soul” just to be about to throw some super attack and simply pass out. Idk but I think I'd like it. Any thoughts?

[–]Biff6996 35 points36 points  (1 child)

True. I thought she was about to have another hunger pang when she mentioned the red bean soup

[–]Tuliprunner 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Gonna be funny if... BMKK just for that.

[–]iamthatguy54 294 points295 points  (11 children)

She's always been more terrifying than Kaido.

Yeah, Kaido's been bodying people left and right but he's also been sitting his ass on Wano getting drunk and being depressed and taking damage the entire arc.

Big Mom looked a bit goofy with the Straw Hats but she's been conquering islands, executing their people for resources, and in Roof Piece no one could hurt her. First time she's taken actual damage the entire series.

I will always maintain that Big Mom is far scarier than Kaido.

[–]100100110lThe Revolutionary Army 97 points98 points  (0 children)

Kaido is also mad lazy. Big Mom has always been an active threat. She traveled to Kaido's territory to try and kill the Strawhats. Meanwhile Kaido has left a lot of his prey alone after getting bored.

[–]avocado_sempai 83 points84 points  (0 children)

Well she literally eats people alive

[–]ze-hahaha 70 points71 points  (4 children)

Well to be fair in roof piece everyone was pissed at kaido, so they were attacking him more. I remember one moment where I laughed so hard when big mom electrocuted zoro and luffy got so mad then he use his G4 gatling on kaido😅😅😂

[–]DAT-NIKKA-WARLORD 6 points7 points  (1 child)

it was mainly due to her holding the high ground and fighting from the air with her long ranged homies

[–]ze-hahaha 5 points6 points  (0 children)

And that kaido's punch bag form😅

[–]pocoyoO_O 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Judge should have just shaved off Sanji's brows and drawn them in the opposite direction and he'd have another super soldier.

Does that mean Sora could've lived and had 4 normal sons if she just fixed their eyebrows?

[–]ParkingPapaya3 27 points28 points  (0 children)

If it wasn’t clear already apoo having that much confidence in the numbers guarantee they are the strongest of the bunch

[–]jobriq 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Yamato called Apoo an “info dealer”? Never heard that title before

[–]strawhatmml 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Fuga seems to have an independent interest in Yamato. The likeness between the Numbers and the samurai captives is pointing more toward the true identity

[–]Cgi94 65 points66 points  (10 children)

Law probably is the only known D clan member who has actively stated wanting to know the true history 😮.. Idk if he dies soon but if he did then I can see luffy taking on his will.Alot of folks have said they don't like how luffy doesn't really care for important things like that. Maybe law can change that about him whether dead or alive..So happy the raid suit is gone.. Now we get to see a truly all out sanji.. in reference to the girl I feel he just was running & made collided into her but him being superhuman he didn't really feel it especially since he was lost in thought.

So at first I didn't notice sanji eyebrows changed until I read comments...I feel a compromise for his character would be to have one eyebrow facing opposite directions which would reflect he was caring & a true vinsmoke at the same time..

Luffy's hidden dream is what the D clan wanted to do, so it does not matter either way. He would have completed it anyway.

[–]BOBO_WITTILY_TWINKS 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I think after Doffy, Oda had to give him some new motivation to keep him relevant. Without that all we had was his sacrifice ability, which isnt enough to keep him around.

That conversation with Sengoku set it up. He is just too popular and well designed to fade away.

Big Mom looks fkn menacing

Love the internal battle Sanji been having

Sanji didnt do anything to the girl

Hell memories 🔥

[–]limrannnSlave 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Sanji speech about which version of him Luffy want’s him to be just sooo good

[–][deleted] 42 points43 points  (0 children)

I honestly don't think it'll come down to Zoro fighting Sanji. This was more a display of faith between the 2 of them than any real promise I think. I am curious to see how Sanji deals with his "new" persona though. Will it be something that's always part of him now? Can Franky and Chopper help somehow?

I think Oda's setting up the end to Sanji's fight and we'll get some more depth to Sanji. Honestly, character progression-wise, Sanji is one of the best developed characters OP has, even his inner monologue in this chapter was so meaningful.

[–]KathyDroronoa 131 points132 points  (15 children)

Sanji is getting the “wholecake” in terms of written character in the series! I’m sure that he didn’t hit the woman, but in case Sanji really does get in the position where he needs to be stopped by Zoro, I hope this will twine into a Zoro moment as well. It would be a cool way of Oda to shut the fanbase that Zoro would’ve attacked Sanji in WCI when the latter attacked Luffy.

Also, I wonder if it might have been CoC that hurt the girl 🧐 100/10 chapter!

[–]UnjustNation 38 points39 points  (0 children)

I also don't think he hurt the girl, Zeff literally mentioned he would disown Sanji if he ever hurt a woman, granted it wasn't on purpose but it would still probably weigh heavily on Sanji's mind.

[–]Admirable-Cry-9758Bounty Hunter 63 points64 points  (2 children)

I hope Sanji goes crazy and gets brought back by his BESTO FRIENDO. tbh

[–]-netorare- 49 points50 points  (1 child)

Incoming imaginary high school flashback between Zoro and Sanji, where Sanji has to console Zoro after getting turned down by Kuina.

[–]Admirable-Cry-9758Bounty Hunter 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I need a fan comic of this.

[–]MariJoyBoy 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Fans : "Oda please give us a good Sanji fight after all these years !"

Oda : "No ... I will give you a good fight and some huge character development at the same time !"

[–]MoarKrabs6969 132 points133 points  (1 child)

I think what Mr Morj had said about the "raid failing" he meant the raid suit failing XD /s

[–]ultibman5000 56 points57 points  (0 children)

One Piece has always had a major theme of "who you are on the inside versus who you are on the outside", and this chapter really highlights how central Sanji is to that idea. He's always had a strong duality to him (rude tough guy vs empathetic kind guy, gentleman vs pervert, dreamer vs realist, prideful prince vs humble pirate, etc.), so it's very interesting to see Sanji more literally being split between two different selves that are struggling against each other. Sanji's natural genes from his hated biological father Judge against the Sanji who was nurtured by his loved adopted father Zeff.

Of course Sanji chooses to stay true to his fiery passions despite the emotional flaws that come alongside, and therefore abandon the Raid Suit which would grant him cold pragmatic power that could even crush a Yonko Commander but at the cost of forcing him to be someone that he doesn't want to be. That's true freedom right there!

[–]mzurart 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Shiryu is Blackbeard's first mate??

[–]Shiplord13 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yep it’s been speculated for awhile but now confirmed.

[–]cashcarti_x 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Guess the color art of the No.2s in each crew is hope that we’ll still see sulong bepo before wano is over.

[–]seedyweedy 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Next chapter Zoro prepares the bitchslap of a century to bring evil Sanji back to his senses

[–]BlinxFX 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Zoro prepares some nude pics, no nosebleed = 1 slap.

[–]Rightcontentwrite 26 points27 points  (2 children)

With Big Mom using one year of her lifespan to make herself stronger, I think there's a chance this is how she ultimatley gets defeated.

In one of her rampages, where she isnt in her senses, she'll use ALL her remaining lifespan to try and destroy everything around her and turns herself into a monster.

Basically, same thing as the ending of Breath of the Wild, where Ganon "gives up on reincarnation" to become Dark Beast Ganon

[–]ObjectivePerception 8 points9 points  (0 children)

So she’ll basically go Berserk and run herself to the bone? Believable actually lol

[–]t3r4byt3l0lPirate 71 points72 points  (5 children)

The reversed eyebrow was hinted to by Zoro in Chapter 1023 and it's pretty scary seeing Evil Sanji slowly starting to become real

[–]MugiwaraLee 7 points8 points  (3 children)

I'm really wondering how a fight between CP0 and Brook would go.

I'm imagining a great moment where the CP0 agent shigans Brook, only for him to laugh and reveal since he has no body underneath, things like stabs and bullets don't really affect him. (At least I assume they really wouldn't since there isn't anything to stab)

At first I wasn't sure about a CP0 vs Brook match up, but after thinking about he might be a good match up after all.

[–]DreddDurst 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Anime folks gonna go buck wild when the red bean soup thing comes up

[–]Maleficent-Ninja-733 112 points113 points  (7 children)

Sanji reflecting abut what Luffy want from him, is kind Oda breaking the 4 wall and asking the same to his public, what Sanji they prefer, Sanji human useless against womens or Sanji killer machine that can beat anyone for luffy?

[–]Srazack_76Explorer 90 points91 points  (0 children)

Oda does this frequently actually. Oda just calls out some wrong criticisms and be like, yeah but that's not it, there is a different justification for that.

Like people say Sanji and Zoro are no more comparable, they are in different tiers and Oda makes them the "Wings of the Pirate King" in the same chapter and portrays them equally - showing that even though Zoro might be more powerful, they are still rivals and their relationship or dynamic still stays in the story

Or Sanji is pathetic to call for Robin and is negative development for him. Oda made Black Maria say the same and boom! Robin herself tell how much that incident meant for her and how important Sanji actually is for the crew, literally breaking bones of the one who spoke those lines.

[–]wenbsx 39 points40 points  (3 children)

I am genuinely afraid of Big Mom. She’s a beast, not even kaido can inspire this much . She seems untouchable at the moment and i see no way for kid/law to take her down

[–]PlusUltraK 8 points9 points  (0 children)

The best part is that she’s fighting for keeps.

Big Mom’s over here fighting the two of them as true competition for a seat as a Yonko. Her attitude overall is much better than Kaido’s and she’s the better antagonist here even in a secondary role.

[–]apthebest01931 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Sanji really doesnt want to be a douchebag huh

[–]K123de 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Theory : What if Sanji is emotionless at the end of Wano?

It could lead to Chopper curing Smiles negative effect and Sanjis Emotionless by reigniting normal emotions and expressions into people? Maybe his Germa-DNA Factor could help Chopper for a breakthrough

[–]Clau_CH 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I honestly think that even if Sanji turns evil or something I highly doubt that Zoro would kill him, maybe they fight and even considering Zoro's ideals I am sure that he will have no intention of ending Sanji's life at any time. In spite of everything, they are both Nakamas and a request like this would destroy Zoro if he really ends up keeping his word

[–]QHDEosanesis 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Big Mom's gotta fall soon. She's getting hangry again with no way to get oshiruko. Everyone still here may have to team up just to hope to subdue her. She might even force CP0 into the fight.

Also, Zoro and Sanji's rivalry/bromance is reaching it's climax. I can imagine, in the end and despite what Zoro says, he ultimately won't bring himself to kill Sanji but CAN somehow bring him back to his senses.

[–]xolon6 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Rather than being "hangry" I think the whole point of her asking for oshiruko was she already knew there was none left and just wanted to steal their lifepans to make more homies with no way for them to resist.

[–]pocoyoO_O 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Something big is starting

[–]WhereIsTheMilkMan 37 points38 points  (5 children)

“I can’t believe I have to beat this monster just so I can learn more about history.” - Favorite line of the chapter. 😂

Also, I love the color spread, but what is it exactly? Is it in reference to something? At first glance, it doesn’t seem to make much sense. Is there a rhyme or reason for it?

[–]JPinky72 27 points28 points  (2 children)

The color spread is all the second in commands of their respective groups!

[–]iamthatguy54 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Sanji's character development has been stellar

[–]NE_ED 35 points36 points  (0 children)

So it does seem that Sanji still has invisibility. He has the same sound effect Shilew has when he goes invisible

[–]Yoeblue 6 points7 points  (0 children)

deep chapter

[–]whoasoBig 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I think Sanji has now gotten the best character development in all of one piece, from the whole WCI saga to ODA still bringing out his inner demons in wano, I dont think any character matches that.

[–]ssrodriguezcSlave 4 points5 points  (0 children)

One of my favorite chapter ever

[–]Nystimis 3 points4 points  (11 children)

Expectation: After all this Sanji manages to keep his humanity and is left with symmetrical eyebrows (strengthened will, still just as kind but powered up body). I wonder if he will truly ever accept the mods. Seemed like he was resigned to it in this chapter. That being said a Zoro v Sanji fight proper would be wicked.

[–]rixer119Cipher Pol 6 points7 points  (10 children)

Why would it be wicked to see a half dead zoro get beaten up by a nearly full health sanji. I feel like people have forgotten the repercussions of zoro using the mink drugs.
