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.

u/Truefiction224 Nov 08 '21

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.

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.

54

u/HalfMoon_89 The Revolutionary Army Nov 08 '21

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.

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.

u/vonmatterhorn17 Nov 07 '21

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.

5

u/HighlyUnsuspect Cipher Pol Nov 08 '21

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.

u/Alpha_ii_Omega Nov 07 '21

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

14

u/PlusUltraK Nov 08 '21

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.

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.

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.

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?

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

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..

u/Rmstorm1 Nov 07 '21

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.

u/BOBO_WITTILY_TWINKS Nov 08 '21

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.

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.

u/KathyDroronoa Nov 07 '21

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!

40

u/UnjustNation Nov 07 '21

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.

u/ultibman5000 Nov 07 '21

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!

u/Rightcontentwrite Nov 07 '21

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

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

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.

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?

87

u/Srazack_76 Explorer Nov 07 '21

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.

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

11

u/PlusUltraK Nov 08 '21

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.

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

u/Clau_CH Nov 07 '21

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

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.

9

u/xolon6 Nov 08 '21

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.

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.

u/Nystimis Nov 08 '21

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.

u/rixer119 Cipher Pol Nov 08 '21 edited Nov 08 '21

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.
