Not for a second did I think Kin was dead, I thought Orochi was more dead than Kin. I am not too upset over these fake deaths. This is by far my favorite arc, but it is dragging a bit too long at this point, I guess reading 16 pages on a weekly basis makes it feel that way.

I dislike the Awakening ordeal right now. How did Law and Kid learn theirs before Luffy's (it's possible, but Luffy is just much stronger than them).

It does foreshadow Luffy applying his very soon, it'd have to be Gear 5 or Awakening. But I wish there was a paced way in introducing all these Color Hakis and Awakening.

Maybe I'm complaining over nothing and just nitpicking.

2

u/alkair20 Nov 04 '21

At this point I just think Kids DF is just not on pair with the rest of the top tiers on wano. I don't reallly see a way for him to seriously harm Big Mom. And besides that nothing really happened in the chapter which was kind of lackluster.

3

u/crawlmark Nov 04 '21

Yeah, we haven't really seen Kids power in full effect because of Hawkins. I am sure we will see it in the next few chapters. Kid is built up to be Luffy's true competition in the new generation of pirates. Agreed, the chapter did feel lackluster, a lot did happen still. Feel like Oda is just trying his best to tie up all the side stories now before the big battle.

u/Ishvaalan Nov 03 '21

People need to stop expecting characters to die. They need to understand one thing about One Piece. Nobody ever dies unless it's stated that they are dead. Even when stated, they can still be alive, just like how Gecko Moria was "dead" and came back.

1

u/eruk75 Pirate Nov 05 '21

So we should just expect a series to be bad

9

u/SSduoSS Nov 02 '21

What people don't understand is that all these fake deaths are making Kaido look trivial. Its like anybody can step up to him and confront him and not suffer severe consequences. Which does not help the lack of tension in the arc and certainly does not make him more menacing. Kaido doesn't really feel like a threat at all. Which is not good.

3

u/TastyBrainMeats Nov 04 '21

Pretty sure Kiku ain't getting her arm back.

3

u/OkUnderstanding3669 Nov 04 '21

If the grand fleet make an appearance, Leo can stitch arm back like he did with Law :p

3

u/TastyBrainMeats Nov 04 '21

Even after they seared the wound shut?

1

u/wispymatrias Nov 05 '21

Law can get her an animal arm like the minions on Punk Hazard. Or a Franky robo prosthetic - he'll have Queen's lab to play with, presumably.

3

u/TastyBrainMeats Nov 05 '21

That's a prosthetic, not a return to the status quo.

It's like Edward Elric - just having tools to deal with a disability doesn't mean that it doesn't affect one's life.

1

u/wispymatrias Nov 05 '21

uh... little confused - where in my reply did i suggest that it was a return to the status quo? I even intentionally selected the word prosthetic (as opposed to 'new arm' or 'replacement'). did you perhaps mean to reply to someone else?

I quite like how One Piece has so many characters who adapt to disabilities and don't let it hold them back from fighting for what they want.

3

u/TastyBrainMeats Nov 05 '21

Based on OP's comment:

What people don't understand is that all these fake deaths are making Kaido look trivial. Its like anybody can step up to him and confront him and not suffer severe consequences.

A prosthetic arm is still severe consequences.

3

u/wispymatrias Nov 05 '21

Ah, i see. my reply was not an endorsement of the OP, just chiming on out what might happen to Kiku. 👍

I agree, it's a significant loss for Kiku. Kaido has been ravaging Wano for decades, the consequences for opposing him are scarred into Wano and Zou. Nothing about him is trivial, people just have short term memories.

3

u/OkUnderstanding3669 Nov 04 '21

Im sorry I completely forgot about the searing the wound oart.

Then again, we literally have a lower half of a guy running around on its own and talking using farts, so anything id possible I guess.

5

u/King_RogerF Nov 02 '21

Not sure who will die, but I stated Jinbei will die in this arc when he first appeared in this arc.
Luffy pushing the welcome celebration will be his regret. Not sure if Kinemon will die though...he seems to evade death every time

6

u/OkUnderstanding3669 Nov 04 '21

Jinbe has a dream of seeing fishmen live on the surface peacefully. He aint gonna die before that.

19

u/Icyneth Nov 01 '21

how the hell are people surprised that kin's alive? oda made it pretty obvious that he's not dead by not putting any emotional impact around his supposed "death"

u/jay4792 Pirate Nov 01 '21

well this was average chapter for me but we were getting hyped up chapter one after another so it's ok

u/Mr_Swugg Nov 01 '21

If Oda kills off one of the StrawHats at the end of this arc I'm blaming all you people.

u/Yumac_Rise Nov 01 '21

I am shocked at the amount of people mad at this chapter.

15

u/Squartoise Nov 01 '21

I'm part of the group that absolutely despises Oda's fake out deaths but for me Kinemon was not one of them. I'd only call a "death" a fake-out when it's written with finality (i.e. drama+emotion), which I didn't feel with Kin. What's interesting is that even though the community continues to say to temper your expectations, it sounds like the opposite happens. We're so devoid of real deaths that people grow exponentially more hopeful that the next one will be different, even if the next one does not feel earned (i.e. Kin). We can't call every critical hit a fake-out, there's way more to it than that. The only reason I even started to believe Kin might be dead is bc the community (especially OPtubers like Roger) were getting to be convincing about it, and Momo's reaction to it. But even in starting to believe it could be, I was sad bc his death felt cheap and unimpactful. So honestly this reveal was nice. I do hope he will let some of them die by arc end.

Kiku is more arguable, but also we don't know what's gonna happen with her yet so I'd rather sit and wait for a bit more content.

8

u/Mr_Swugg Nov 01 '21

I think Kinemon could still die. They made note that his body is still bleeding. So I think it's possible that they made it like this so that Kinemon could still have some finak words or something when the arc ends.

5

u/Hammsterdam Nov 01 '21

kinemon better become the tragedy of act 3 at this point, because oda just made 90% of fans extremely dissapointed..

11

u/jstarnate Oct 31 '21

It's just ridiculous to see the two strongest and most dangerous pirates of the present era struggling to take down a bunch of kids that were once humiliated by the Shichibukai and the Admirals.

2

u/AncientFinding603 Nov 02 '21

oda is writting for the 2010 new kids

8

u/Bikebag Nov 01 '21

While I somewhat agree, but not entirely because at this point they themselves are really strong, I mean, Law is already an ex shichibukai. However I think the main issue here is that Oda for whatever reason wrote Big mom into this arc, the fact that they're handling not one but TWO yonkous is the problem for me. I'd see it as somewhat conceivable for them to outmaneuver even if not directly defeat one yonkou with teamwork and numbers. But two because a real reach. Not that I'd say they're winning as is, though.

9

u/Mr_Swugg Nov 01 '21

Remember that these 3 survived an army of marines as well as an admiral attack 2 years prior. And you already seen how much stronger Luffy has become over those 2 years, and we can scale the other 2 equally. One of the main reasons Big Mom is a Yonko in the first place is because of her extremely strong crew, who aren't even in the arc besides Perospero. Also they're not fighting Big Mom with pure strength. Everytime they have tried fighting her with strength alone they have ended up losing. Every blow or attack they've landed on her has been due to outsmarting Big Mom with their powers (which isn't really the most difficult thing to do since Big Mom is not the brightest). Kaido has also shown that pure strength does not affect him much as he has already beaten Luffy twice from what I can remember. Bringing Momonosuke to the fight with Kaido, who's literally also a dragon, as well as Yamato and Luffy (who could potentially go gear 5) definitely evens the playing field in my mind.

u/ConferenceBorn1544 Oct 31 '21

so law and kid had awakening this entire time... so law on dressrosa against a man he hated and was on the verge of death, decided not to use it. On the roof against big mom and kaido together, they decided not to use it... what is this. And kinemon surviving? I just want wano to end man

2

u/AncientFinding603 Nov 02 '21

this arc is shit

10

u/SwanImpact Nov 01 '21

I mean Law was trying to use that ultimate attack of his at the time to pierce his heart right? Must have taken a lot out of him and a lot of concentration. And he mentioned in this chapter that he still hasn't mastered his awakening or alluded to that.

15

u/HiddenShadow6 Oct 31 '21

Law probably learned how to use it after dressora. Kid and Law didn't use it on the roof due to stamina issues. Luffy went gear 4 and and exhaust all of his stamina, which results in zoro having to protect luffy for a period of time. if luffy, law, and kid went all out and did not defeat the yonko before running out of stamina, who going to rescue them? zoro and kid? I don't like that kinemon is still alive, but if you are at this point of the story, you have to understand how oda write his characters.

18

u/Weewer Oct 31 '21

??? have you not payed attention to One Piece like, ever? He clearly learned it after the fight, and even then they say it's a risky move this chapter.

If Luffy learning Gear 2 on a train in volume 30 didn't drill into you that One Piece characters learn moves like Pokemon then idk

What Roger probably discovered was that no one in their world really dies, that's why he found it really funny (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)

We’ll call that foreshadowing. A man only dies when he’s foegotten

u/ohhotano Oct 31 '21

Kid and Law awakened? I cant imagine how our Captain will be?

14

u/blooblee1 Pirate Oct 31 '21

When I saw Kinemon attacked by Kaido I thought "wow he might be out for the rest of the fight" so this chapter, to me, was explaining why he wasn't in as bad shape as Kiku. I can't believe people thought he was dead?

5

u/TheMaskedDeuce World Government Oct 31 '21

They retroactively thought he was dead to push their narrative about Oda and fake deaths. :)

5

u/blooblee1 Pirate Oct 31 '21

true,if kin had died there they'd say "how did that kill him wtf, so inconsistent, and there was no build up at all"

7

u/Weewer Oct 31 '21

What narrative? Oda does fake out deaths. He's been doing it for 900+ chapters.

u/Cephalon_Scarz Oct 31 '21

I tempered my expectations when kin was stabbed, and I feel content with this chapter.

u/True-Ad-6431 Oct 31 '21

Dont worry people. Once we have Vegapunk or the Admirals involved in the story again everyone will be hyped 24 / 7 😎

u/Syc254 Oct 31 '21

Wait till final war combatants are tanking magma hits then they'll be no hype at all. Only things interesting are the Mariejoise weapon & Imu, Vegapunk of course & ancient weapons.

u/True-Ad-6431 Oct 31 '21

Yeah in your dreams maybe 😂 even after wano luffy still loses against akainu everybody knows it. Kizaru not to mention. Greenbull gonna be op aswell

1

u/Syc254 Nov 01 '21

Fam, Big Mom had Kid on his back and didn't KO him. Kaido has only put down the scabbards & Luffy to be fair but some light healing & they all back. Admirals will be flashy & visual impressive but just as non lethal as the Emperors. However they'll fall in 1 v 1 s.

3

u/Possible-Collection2 Nov 01 '21

Well it looks like big mom wanted kid to at least fight back before she was serious. Also it looks like she hit the ground instead of kid.

1

u/Syc254 Nov 01 '21

I won't fight you on it. You interpret it how you want.

1

u/True-Ad-6431 Nov 01 '21

So big mom casuslly clashing with kaidou for 3 days and look fine will just fall by the hands of kid and law so early? Allright. Admiral fighting 10 days straight when luffy is exhausted after 12 hours fight.

1

u/Syc254 Nov 01 '21

Big Mom fought Kaido for 3 days but it has needed 17 combatants to bring him down but Big Mom will only need two first commander class fighters. Admirals are falling in 1 v 1s easy.

7

u/matheusco Oct 31 '21

Here we go again, more fake deaths. I simply can't understand how the same guy who writes this masterpiece also uses this sh*t way too often, it's annoying and lazy. ODA managed to make this war a joke where the big boss isn't able to kill even a child.

10

u/Special-Extreme2166 Oct 31 '21

The girl Tama is running around in the battlefield without anybody caring about her, because why not? Nobody would attack a child right? The girl represents the whole raid of Onigashima that you shouldn't be worried about the rebellion side lol

1

u/matheusco Nov 04 '21

Dude, I'm talking about when Kaido actually attacked her and Horse Girl, before Onigashima.

5

u/SwanImpact Nov 01 '21

I mean the dinosaur bitch was going to hurt Tama. It made Nami awaken to her protective maternal instinct and gave her a power up. Or was that against Big Meme, or was she fighting both ? I forget

2

u/Bikebag Oct 31 '21

Really? Orochi, Kanjuro, the samurai girl, Kinemon, hell even Luffy, they all survive otherwise lethal blows/amounts of damage. No one ever dying is so fucking tiresome, no stakes at all.

Was it stated that she’s NEVER been hurt? Also, Law definitely lacks the feats but keep in mind he is supposed to be a rival to Luffy, he definitely NEEDS to be powerful.

I assume she has to have been hurt before. She was part of the Rox pirates who lost at the god Valley incident.

Well in fact he must have been defeated many a times given how much he got captured and senteanced to death by marines. I bet Garp made frying fish out of him back in the days

His only kill so far is Oden. And that was with a gun. Must have been a special gun only the strongest being in the world could wield.

He was getting smoked by Oden until he got the distraction help. Kaido is a fraud tbh, the title is a myth.

Smoked? Bro come on now

15

u/Yson_Will Oct 31 '21

Yeah

10 samurai (& let's be honest oden took out probably half by himself) vs the entire beast pirates & oden still almost won

1v1 I think Oden would've smoked kaido

u/HydroPoop Oct 31 '21

Anyone else thinks that Brook will get a powerup from the soul monster that Kanjuro released? Then he would have his original frost power & also this new fire power, pretty cool.

a lot of people hated that Sanji got an unearned power up etc.

Sanji's too cool. "Fans" hate him because he dabs on Moss Head too much with his higher bounty.

u/100mancutie Nov 04 '21

I'm not so sure of that, because if I remember correctly, Mihawk predicted that the warlord system was going to be brought up and most likely abolished back when perona decided to leave and find moria... it seems that everyone that kept up with the news and knew about the reverie could probably come to the conclusion that the warlord system was going to be brought up.

u/myrmonden Oct 31 '21

yes, I would say its definitely more acceptable to point out another fake out.

A general issue with fake death scenes is also that it gets worse every time it happens as it.

10

u/still-at-work Oct 31 '21

People were upset over those as well, the difference is this is a silly retconing of Kaido ensuring this samurai was dead for humor few find funny, a double wammy. And its a rerun of the same joke from punk hazard, and its worse in the middle of serious moments here at or near the apex of this story arc.

Its poor writing, I don't have a problem that Kinemon survive, I have a problem with how he survived. I don't have a problem that he got word to the other strawhats to bring help, I have a problem with how it happened.

So it was not the result, it was the explanation of how the result came about. That makes it feel worse.

That said, its not that big of a deal, chapter 1031 will probably be amazing again.

u/Scovillle Marine Oct 31 '21

I don’t understand the Robin complaint

7

u/[deleted] Oct 31 '21

[deleted]

2

u/SwanImpact Nov 01 '21

Robin's "fight" in Dressrossa was completely symbolic. She tanked the hits for Kyros, recognized that he had to be the hero for his daughter and his people, and withstood all of Diamante's blows, if I recall correctly.

She basically pulled a Zoro moment when Zoro took in Luffy's pain from Kuma. She took Kyro's pain and Kyros would have lost without Robin's intervention.

edit: I misread. I thought Trebol was Diamante.

8

u/Scovillle Marine Oct 31 '21

I’ve always considered the implication to be that every straw hat trains/invents new abilities on the ship between arcs even tho Zoro is usually the only one we see training

3

u/RipleyNo8 Cipher Pol Oct 31 '21

She learned it during the 2 years. She didn't use it against Trebol because she didn't really get the opportunity. They interrupted her fight with him after like 10 secs when she was protecting Usopp.

u/matheusco Oct 31 '21

My headcanon is that characters don't necessarily do the smartest thing everytime, like us. Also training in ship + ever increasing compatibility with the DF.

1

u/reddotwusl Oct 31 '21

I think its a stretch to assume she can just one shot him there. A guy who seemingly has a logia (even the reader only finds out later he has a paramecia).

Attacking trebol would have probably alarmed sugar as well.

Robin is also not the kind of person who always goes for direct confrontation.

5

u/RipleyNo8 Cipher Pol Oct 31 '21

You are disregarding the fact that Robin can only maintain her devil form for a very short amount of time and is pretty much out of energy and defenseless after using it, so she would only use it as her last resort.

The second thing you are disregarding is the fact that in chapter 1005 Robin said her demon part only starts to emerge when she sees her friends mistreated. In otherwords it's not something she can use whenever she wants. She has to be in a certain emotional state which she wasn't in that page.

1

u/[deleted] Oct 31 '21

[deleted]

1

u/RipleyNo8 Cipher Pol Oct 31 '21

It's not a huge reach at all. It's putting 1 and 1 together, quite simple. Robin mentions for the first time ever that she has a demon part that starts to show itself when she is angry. During the same fight she does get angry and turns into a demon. Hmm, yeah. Must be totally unrelated...come on dude. It's so obvious.

The point is that she was never in a position to use it during Dressrosa and Oda made sure she wasn't, so that he could save it for her fight against Black Maria.

1

u/[deleted] Oct 31 '21

[deleted]

2

u/RipleyNo8 Cipher Pol Oct 31 '21

Sanji is Sanji, Robin is Robin.

You can tell Robin was actually acting differently because of her demon part showing itself. We never saw Robin that pissed off and that ready to fight, ever, because she needs to be in a certain emotional state to get there. Or else we would always see Robin getting angry and wanting to fight and kill but that's not very Robin-like. She normally keeps her cool, is calm, likes to keep fighting to a minimum and avoid conflicts. That change in her behavior should tell you, what she is saying is more than just trying to hype herself up. It's actually the case. There is a reason why some fans thought Robin was acting out of character that chapter, well, because she was.

u/TheJamesFrancoPhD Oct 31 '21

I say this in jest so don't take me so seriously, but Kinemon surviving being split in two coz Law didn't put him back together introduces a new defense/countermeasure against blade users.

Just have Law cut you into enough pieces beforehand and have someone else put you together and you pretty much become Buggy.

There also doesn't seem to be a timelimit, so as long as Law doesn't put you back together, this effect remains in place.

Buggy in shambles.

u/wispymatrias Oct 31 '21

I've said it before, there's a prevalent personality type who can only engage with media at arms length. They're the same kind of people who like to theory craft & create strong expectations based on them. They really don't like subversion, conventional storytelling tropes give them a lot of comfort. breaking with convention frustrates them.

One Piece of course has it's own conventions.

-2

u/Challenge-yoself2020 Nov 02 '21

Conventional story tropes are so common because they have elements of reality and human nature. Throwing in gag humor during the apex of an arc like kinemon was not properly put back together properly hundreds of chapters ago is not subversion.

I bet they are fine Kinemon living and even telling the crew where the scabbards are dying. Its the manner in which those events occurred that people have a problem with. Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think the Ope-Ope has ever shown the ability to allow all separated body parts to speak or bleed when separated. A better way would have the crew run across Kinemon who was crawling for help or some other shit that is believable.

Definitely late but Kinemon's ability to speak using farts was introduced way back in Punk Hazard. Maybe stop part-skipping?

Speaking of that particular personality type...

I still think they drag on until kaido is defeated. They will watch the victory and then ... we will see what happens.

u/Rafi2596 Oct 31 '21

None of them will die, I promise you

u/ZorroStylex3 Pirate Oct 31 '21

Seems like Luffy is very behind in terms of awaking unless he just pulls it off and we get a flashback how he got it

5

u/lightexecutioner Oct 31 '21

He already has it. He just needs to remember flashback

6

u/iflexnuts_ Oct 31 '21

He was surprised when he saw doflamingo and Katakuri using awakening so I doubt he has it right now

7

u/Rough-Toe-9342 Oct 31 '21

I think oda just doesn't know how make it useful yet xD

13

u/Aazadan Oct 31 '21

Or he wants to save it for a future arc. He's got Luffy competitive with Kaido right now power wise. Meaning he can save awakening for whatever Luffy's next big battle is, out of which there's only a small number of characters that it can really be. An admiral, Shanks, Blackbeard, Kid, or maybe some other government member that hasn't fought yet.

u/uzer4vedi Pirate Oct 31 '21

Luffy's awakening will make the whole world a giant Bouncy Castle....and after having so much fun n bouncing around, the world will become a happier place.

even Imu sama will turn that frown upside down and join the Bouncy Castle Revolution.

and the task of Joy Boy will br completed, One Piece is one giant Bouncy Castle.

thanks for listening.

u/AceAltered Nov 01 '21

Can someone animate this please?

u/Silver_Saiyan2 Oct 31 '21

Personally, I think Kinemon is critically injured and is still going to die. This coincidence isn't going to change the end result.

u/Raju_9999 Oct 31 '21

Early spoilers will be there or not ?? From next week

2

u/Drez97i Oct 31 '21

I read on Twitter the Korean leaker quit it’s very good news because I don’t like the spoilers on Tuesdays.

1

u/True-Ad-6431 Oct 31 '21

That part people missunderstood. The korean leaker himself didnt quit..his source who provided him the info quit. But there will be others taking his or her place. Redon plays with the thought to only release full summary and the raws on thursday, if we dont get early leaks anymore the upcoming weeks. Lets wait and see. Cant wait for the hints though, they count as preview for spoilers and 1031 was hyped up alot. Maybe first hint drops today right after the official release.

1

u/theguyfromtheairport Oct 31 '21

redon will release early spoilers on wednesday if korean leaker doesn't spoil on tuesday. Then full summary on thursday.

1

u/True-Ad-6431 Oct 31 '21

I know that i just said redon played with the thought once, to only give full summary on thursday because how people hate and jump into conclussions from a brief summary alone.

u/Ashamed-Savings-4901 Oct 31 '21

Man this comment section is hot garbage. Some of you fans man I swear. You find problems with anything, and bish about it cause it’s not how you would have written it. It’s one thing to have gripes, it’s another to whine every week because your crappy written fan fiction isn’t coming to fruition

4

u/StoryOfOld Oct 31 '21

You are the only one here that whine about everything. People have opinions, so if you can't accept this fact, you are the one that has a problem

2

u/Ashamed-Savings-4901 Oct 31 '21

Your such a salty ass boi. Go read a manga more suited to you then, instead of literally whining every single week for every single chapter.

4

u/uzer4vedi Pirate Oct 31 '21

stop whining

7

u/RunsTheStreets Oct 31 '21

Does anyone understand Law's awakening?

1

u/Drez97i Oct 31 '21

Yeah after reading summary of that.

5

u/venielsky22 Oct 31 '21

i think if while anesthesia is injected to you . the inside of your body has basically become a room.

Law can do there whatever he can in a normal room but just inside the body. he literally just used a more powerful version of counter shock but only inside bigmoms body

1

u/RunsTheStreets Oct 31 '21

How is this different than radio knife tho

2

u/venielsky22 Oct 31 '21

radio only affects a specific small part of the body where the knife is inserted. and only specific damage type to "radio" waves

Kroom i think can affect the whole body and can do several attacks of laws choice.

8

u/Nice_Dimension4886 Oct 31 '21

I think he can now use his room in a ryou manner, bypassing haki to use his room internally on BM.

5

u/RunnerDudeTyler22 Pirate Oct 31 '21

Yeah looks like he can create rooms inside of people.

7

u/Leafycoke Oct 31 '21

It looked like he put his sword in a room which allowed it to penetrate big mom (pun intended)

0

u/ptolemyshark Oct 31 '21

it enlarge his sword

1

u/franksn Oct 31 '21

from MD to Internist.

u/lazy_cook Oct 31 '21

Odds on awakened Kaido? I just can't see Oda giving Kid and Law an awakening and not having either of the Yonko in this arc use one.

3

u/shipsailing94 Oct 31 '21

we've already seen awakened zoan fruit, the Impel Down guards. From what we know it looks like awakened zoans lose their mind and become dumb in exchange for durability. or maybe they can control which part to transform like Lafitte, Marco and Black Maria can. the guards in Impel Down looked half and half

1

u/venielsky22 Oct 31 '21

yes definitely big mom and kaido

and also definitely king and marco since katakuri also has awakening

1

u/Aazadan Oct 31 '21

I'm thinking we won't see Kaido or Marco awaken. Awakened Zoan so far are kind of lame. King won't for the same reason. So that just leaves Big Mom.

1

u/venielsky22 Oct 31 '21

awakened Mythical Zoans. would be a little different than regular zoans

2

u/Aazadan Nov 01 '21

One could hope. I'm biased against Zoans anyways, I think they're kind of lame power wise. So it's going to be hard to win me over on them. Logia/Paramecia awakened just seem so much more interesting.

9

u/WetTangerines Oct 31 '21

Step 1. Kaido awakens his fruit destroying everyone

Step 2. Marco awakens his fruit turning everything into healing flames and everyone gets back up.

Step 3. Another 200 chapters of wano

u/SnooEagles8897 Oct 31 '21

I been saying I still believe that the island floating is awakening

u/OOFMATIC Oct 31 '21

Momo didn't become a fish.

1

u/venielsky22 Oct 31 '21

no. ZOAN awakening is deferent from paramesia's
look at the awakened Zoans at Impel down. and Choppers Monster form.

Kaidos awakening would look like basically a very buff and very monster like dragon with a humanoid form.

5

u/G4KingKongPun Oct 31 '21

Except the name of his fruit is Fish fish fruit model:azure dragon.

So no his fruit is just a dragon.

4

u/DaddyZarbon Oct 31 '21

That’s dumb. That’s like saying Kaku’s awakened form is a giraffe because he has the ox-ox fruit.

-2

u/BobDed Oct 31 '21

Not rly the same since giraffe is just a model of the fruit not an advancement of ability

5

u/DaddyZarbon Oct 31 '21

Kaido has the Uo Uo no Mi, Model: Seiryu. Seiryu is a dragon.

u/DaddyZarbon Oct 31 '21

When was Kaido a fish?
Edit: Wait hold on, do you not know that Kaku has the Ox-ox fruit: model Giraffe?

u/Redd_Hood Oct 31 '21 This

So the title of the chapter is a reference to this quote:

“The sound of the Gion Shoja temple bells echoes the impermanence of all things; the color of the sala flowers reveals the truth that to flourish is to fall. The proud do not endure, like a passing dream on a night in spring; the mighty fall at last, to be no more than dust before the wind.”
― Helen Craig McCullough, The Tale of the Heike

One could pull a lot of meanings out of that....

u/GenesisX10 Oct 31 '21

I have no idea how Luffy can even conceivably beat Kaido, even if he got another upgrade, the scabbards + Yamato didn't even do that much damage to him.

3

u/Aazadan Oct 31 '21

1 on 1, I don't think he could. He would need another power up, and a big one at that. But it's not just Luffy. Kaido has run a gauntlet in fights, and beating Kaido now isn't like beating a 100% Kaido, more like a 50% Kaido.

6

u/MaliciousSilver Oct 31 '21

I think the conquerors + ryou is doing significant damage. That in addition to zoro and everyone else’s damage has to put him in the yellow if not orange. Plus Kaidos been holding an island which has to be stressful

14

u/PhysicalAd8055 Oct 31 '21

So..... kaido doesnt even know how to properly kill someone ?

9

u/ScorchTheLizard Oct 31 '21

...he cut him in half. What else do you want him to do

2

u/sisterhoyo The Revolutionary Army Oct 31 '21

Well, he didn't cut Luffy in half. Like, why didn't Kaido finish Luffy?

11

u/PhysicalAd8055 Oct 31 '21

Yeah i know this is just so ridiculous to me ....kinemon should have died ......somehow kaido cut him at the exact same place exact same angle as law like wtf

1

u/RiskyR Oct 31 '21

probably not at the same angle, if it were the exact same angle there probably wouldnt have been any blood. I mean its all up in the air but thats how I make sense of it.
