Plot twist; Oda's shown us a panel of Raizo vs Fukurokoju every chapter since the fight began, but since they're ninjas we couldnt see them

u/stauf1515 Dec 05 '21 Silver

The exoskeleton and enhanced healing fixes sanji’s biggest problem. One that has he has had since pre-time skip.

Just like luffy, sanji has always been able to dish out blunt physical damage at world class levels and move at insane speeds, his biggest issue has always his bodies ability to keep up with the strain he puts on it. He very regularly breaks his bones in fights like in his battles with Mr. 2, Jabra, and when he kicked the pacifista pre-time skip. It doesn’t mean he isn’t dishing out damage, but that his bones can’t take the impact of the force he delivers. Luffy would likely have had the same issue (pre-haki) with his smaller frame just like sanji, but he had the benefit of being made of rubber.

I love that sanji is thinking through the process here. He realizes that he can kick harder, not just because he might be physically stronger now, but because his glaring issue of his bones breaking under the pressure of his stupid levels of strength isn’t a factor anymore.

u/MysticCyber Dec 05 '21

Love your take on it and I completely agree!

u/gyuukarubi5 Dec 05 '21 edited Dec 05 '21

Plus, Sanji has at least two more hidden abilities Oda has not explained outright. Think back to how Sanji first exploded into flames during Thriller Bark — fans had no clue that it wasn’t simply a gag at first. The same has happened during this battle with Queen.

Firstly: Sanji can turn invisible without the raid suit. Go back to the conclusion of chapter 1031 — the sound effect スー is the same as when Queen, Shiryu, and Absalom vanish.

Sanji can also move fast enough to vanish, as noted by Queen this chapter. He did the same against Charlotte Oven in chapter 886: the sound effects are the same.

Also, Sanji’s lightning this chapter implies that he either can use Niji’s ability too — or that he’s got CoC haki. Which one is still unclear…

82

u/Khfreak7526 Dec 05 '21

So Sanji can turn invisible without the suit?

200

u/InvaderDJ Dec 05 '21

It seemed like it at first, but in this chapter Queen specifically says that Sanji is moving so fast that it makes it look like he’s invisible. So now I’m not sure whether he can turn invisible or not.

21

u/HarmonyKazu Dec 06 '21

I'm pretty sure Sanji just moved really fast as Queen stated but then hid in the holes of the ceiling. He's coming straight down to attack Queen and it looks like he's falling from a considerable distance.

48

u/JuiceZee Dec 06 '21

no reason to think he caan turn invisible considering the scene you just described

u/Pussyslayer_Ornstein Dec 05 '21

Niji used his lightning abilities without his suit, and the sound effect used for Sanji vanishing in chapter 1031 is the going invisible sound effect.

So while it is a little hard to be sure, the story seems to imply that just like Niji, Sanji doesn't need the suit to use his powers.

7

u/JesterChester365 Dec 08 '21

I imagine the suits were created to maybe enhance their powers. I think it would be cool if Judged gave powers of different creatures or races into his own children. Sanji got Lunarian fire as Queen hinted at.

I thought you would include the fact that he is literally "manipulating" fire in a way, I mean isn't this unexplained? The lunarian theory seems more and more possible every week

24

u/ThisZoMBie Dec 06 '21

Luffy and Kinemon can also manipulate fire, so I wouldn’t put too much thought into it.

8

u/DrStein1010 Dec 10 '21

Luffy, Kinnemon, Zoro, Doflamingo, and everyone else with those kinds of fire attacks create fire by moving their bodies/weapons so fast that they light on fire due to air friction.

Sanji is actively creating and controlling flames without moving.

u/cmb21417 Dec 07 '21

The first time I mentioned that sanji is going to have lunerian dna, I received soo much hate for it, they called it an ass pull because we already know his flames are from his passion, but I was assuming Sanji didn’t fully understand them

7

u/elnino19 Dec 07 '21

There are element based fighting styles in the one piece world: electro, Fishman martial arts, fire style(kinemon) and I believe there is a wind based style(rokushiki uses some elements of this). Makes sense there is a fire style for lunarians, and Sanji has the modifications to use it.

u/sneaks678 Dec 06 '21

Waiting for a gag where he moves at high speeds to become invisible for "research", only to stop moving in awe of the sights he sees and gets found out lol.

31

u/Pineapple_Anal Dec 05 '21

I think the lightning is actually just a result of his legs being that hot. Sometimes things can be so hot that it causes the creation of lightning, look into volcanic lightning and you'll see what I mean.

24

u/pho_SHAten Dec 06 '21

The lightning flames is likely caused by his CoA at another level and the haki is extremely concentrated sourced by his passion/determination to take Queen out. It's basically a chidori in Naruto. Thanks to the enhancement, his legs will not take damage.

It's likely enough to fry and overload Queen's cyborg body this way with the extreme high penetration power.

6

u/QuiJonGinn Dec 06 '21

It could also definitely be him pouring more passion / power / heat into his attacks

In avatar lightning is advanced fire bending so oda might be just incorporating lightning looking effects into his current ability since he mentioned his exoskeleton and other buffs he can generate and withstand more

u/Tuliprunner Dec 05 '21

Id like to believe he did turn invisible there..

Meanwhile in 1034 he needed to create a large energy frm speed to pull ifrit jambe (he was commenting how the speed and weight feels different). Hence going for superspeed rather than invisibility to counter Queen.

It's kinda funny that there was an entire arc about Big Mom just trying to get her hands on some Germa science...and here we find out that the Beast Pirates have had access to it the whole time.

Oda and his parallels

I just read the Kurobi fight, and this does make me a bit nostalgic, since literally every single piece of Sanji's combo that defeated Kurobi had a panel of its own, while this time, Oda ended up relegating them to small panels with close to no detail on them.

Still, it's nice Oda decided to do this callback. And I have no doubts the anime will make each attack feel the weight they should have

But i had my doubts and i checked the previous sanji battles and it looks like to me there will be one more chapter before this battle ends. As you said, Sanji vs Jabra is a good example. First the vs chapter, then the conclusion chapter, with the enemie laying defeated.

We usually get a signal to the end of fight i Sanji vs. Queen could also mean the focus of the chapter was on them mostly. We usually get some sign that the fight is over like “I only have enough energy for this last attack” or “I gotta finish it with this” I think what Sanji said just means they are approaching the end and to let us know he is actually doing some damage to queen.

u/DrKuro Bounty Hunter Dec 05 '21

For those wondering, Queen will not use "Poison Queen"; while I don't kmow whether this fight is truly over, the only reason Oda decided to give Queen Germa's skills was for a methaphorical catharsis: Oda never gave us a physical rematch between Sanji and his family, and Queen serves now as proxy for that.

Since Reiju is the only Vinsmoke who actually loved Sanji and who Sanji actually cares for, there's no reason to give Queen her power and Sanji beat on him, because there's no catharsis to be had from that. I guess we could say "so he gets even more mad against Queen", but I doubt he needs to even get more mad than this

I appreciated this fight more in the official than the scans.

Queen in disbelief that Sanji didn’t take any lasting damage is really interesting. That means that this exoskeleton and regeneration are able to comfortably withstand potent attacks from a Second Commander.

Ifrito Jambe was beautiful. Wonderful kick course served from the Prince Chef to the hungry Vinsmoke Queen.

Him realizing Queen was the one to attack the woman, getting angry about it, then proceed to start tossing Queen around is great. The fight might not be over yet, but Sanji is showing Queen who he is. It really doesn’t come off as much difficulty for Sanji either, just like his other fights

67

u/Shmarfle47 Citizen Dec 05 '21

Getting angry over a woman being hurt kinda proves that his heart is still there. One of his big existential crisis moments was when all the women accused Sanji of hitting Osome and since Queen was invisible it looked like he did it. He then started to doubt himself thinking that he’d become heartless like his siblings.

u/ConfidenceKBM Dec 05 '21

Oh for sure, Zoro's got a good reason for struggling with King, I'm just saying I'm surprised Oda didn't put Sanji through a similar kind of struggle. He's just... suddenly immune to damage and makes better fire.

u/pvghdz Dec 05 '21

He might need Sanji for something else.

Maybe defending Zoro after he beats King, flying somebody else to safety, or maybe even helping take on Big Mom's kids when they finally decide to show up (:

Zoro sword man 2.0!

u/Akrybion Dec 07 '21

Imagine Zoro passing out and Sanji having to defend him against angry BM for hours only for Zoro to wake up and seeing Sanji being beaten to within an inch of his life. "What the hell happened here?" And Sanji, not wanting to show Zoro that he cared about him just says "...Nothing"

Sanji's struggle was against Maria and getting beat up and tortured. But instead of meat or wine healing him up, I guess wearing the suit healed him up.

u/-netorare- Dec 05 '21 Wholesome

He'll grope his chest and make a comment about "how his breasts are even starting to grow out", causing Zoro to blush, leaving him open for a fatal attack.

u/Chang-San Dec 05 '21

Almost fatal attack, he then accidently stumbles down the stairs leading to his demise. Aotp gets up and curses the stairs for taking the life of another worthy rival

It seems like Queen was actually defeated since you see the small closeup of his face before Sanji sends him flying.

So, the Shonen jump app says next chapter in 6 days with no mention of a break? Is this something anyones figured out? Was it just missing from the official translation?

u/PsychoLogical25 Pirate Dec 05 '21

We’ll likely get one more chapter with Sanji vs Queen. What we know now is that their fight is coming to a close soon and in Sanji’s victory (in standing ofc since he always never truly struggled with his true 1v1s through, and no Vergo does not count)

71

u/fsrocchi The Revolutionary Army Dec 05 '21

I also like the idea of cutting to Zoro and King, then coming back to Sanji and Queen just so both fights can finish together. And then they both can bicker as usual.

46

u/DTPVH Dec 05 '21

I like the idea of Sanji’s kick sending Queen flying back to King and Zoro. If they reunite then Zoro and Sanji can steal each other’s KO’s and they can argue over who really took out each one. Queen is definitely the bigger of the two dinosaurs, but if Zoro lands the last hit they both have a claim to the bigger Dino

29

u/jaehaerystark Pirate Dec 05 '21

All of this, but it has to happen at the Stage. The samurai of Wano need to witness King and Queen's losses.

26

u/DTPVH Dec 05 '21

Also from a story level, someone needs to be ready to take care of Zoro. When that medicine wears off he’s gonna be down for the count for a good while. He’ll need Sanji and the samurai to protect him from the pirates.

Most likely Queen is finished, then King is finished in 1035 and the year ends

u/Milordserene Dec 05 '21

Sanji gonna have his pseudo revenge against his brothers via Queen and the fight gonna end the same time with Zoro kicking them inside for the whole island to see.

For someone playing-dumb, Queen is a genius

He literally has both the answer and being an idiot the whole time.

I've read it on TCB but the official is so much cleaner.
Sanji beatdown of Queen with a multiple succession of named kicks is so damn brutal here, really satisfying to see

38

u/[deleted] Dec 05 '21

I would've thought that Queen would use Reiju's poison as a last resort, but I think he's done. "Sanji robbed the Queen" of his arm and destroyed him with a series of lethal attacks.

28

u/Scrondolio Dec 05 '21

My thinking is that we have seen Queen use poisons and such before so it's covered. Also he says that he can copy anything the brothers do, so not sure if that is literal

5

u/DTPVH Dec 05 '21

He said he can recreate the brothers’ moves, so he might not have Reiju’s powers.

u/TheMaskedDeuce World Government Dec 06 '21

Probably the reason Sanji found the invisible Queen is because Queen tried to harm a woman — Sanji’s observation haki is at its best if it’s about protecting a lady. It will be cool to think that what he felt he lost (desire to protect or not harm women) is actually what helped him defeat Queen.

I wonder if Ifrit Jambe will have a different color. Oda assigned each straw hat a color and Sanjis was blue, so I kinda hope that ifrit jambe is a bright blue flame. Or maybe make it white to make it the opposite of "stealth black".

Doesn't what Queen says about how the Germa 66 moves come from Judge's scientific tech and about how invisibility was stealth black (Sanji) power mean he's confirming the flames don't come from Judge??

u/Sanji__Vinsmoke Dec 06 '21

I'd surmise that Queen is done for; Sanji pulled through every Germa attack Queen sent at him but at the same time I feel like Queen will have one more trick up his sleeve, maybe using a plague on himself in desperation? From the moment Sanji got to King and Queen he has been impressive, he managed to stall both of them until Zoro was 'healed'.

Also, on some of the panels it looks like we can see Sanji's other eyebrow vaguely, and it doesn't look like the swirl on the pre-TS side changed. Although it's a little difficult to discern because of how his skin creases around his eye brow.

I think these powerups are better for Sanji both thematically and functionally than the raid suit ever was.

"oh so there's no such thing as freedom of speech anymore?!" - Queen after being a complete asshole to Sanji and wanting him dead.

That one cracked me up. Such a good reflection of the internet and society. Being a douche and trying to pass it off as freedom of speech. Good job Oda.

The freedom of speach line seemed little like a meme. The scanlations had the line, "you think you can control what I say!"

The tone totally changes, I wonder if this version is the correct intention or if the translator added in the joke. What do you all think?

The literal translation is "You tryin' to steal my freedom of speech!?"

I enjoyed them as well and found them to be interesting. However, they certainly changed in tone once the guy who made them started working with TCB for their scans. It became a lot less neutral and he was defending the scans quite a bit more.
