YOSH!!! Welcome WRA to the One Piece Chapter 586 Breakdown! I thought this was a really well done chapter leaving the floor open to a few theories which I always find fun to discuss. I’ll be getting to those later and mind you I won’t be assuming anything just theorizing! There’s a difference! You know what they say about “assume”. It makes an “ass” out of “u” and “me”. That’s why you never assume. ^_^ I didn’t enjoy this chapter as much I did the last one which was for me consistently entertaining throughout, but by far the ending to chapter 586 was more exciting in so many ways. Slowly building up towards the climatic fire and surprise appearance was what this chapter was all about and it did a great job in setting up the next chapter for an epic beginning. It also moved the flashback along nicely and now things look like they’re really about to pick up!
Here’s this week’s AMV and BOPP
This AMV may not be to everyone’s liking due to some choice words in the song (you’ve been warned) but the AMV flow is excellent and it syncs with the song perfectly! I’m not a big fan of the song myself but the AMV by Compbros is too good for me to resist. xD I don’t know whether this week’s Baddass One Piece Pic is that…badass, but I love the artwork! 😛 BOPP by Sakimichan!
As if hearing Kisuzachi’s prayers Oda smacks Smoker onto the front cover along with a drunken Hina and a Camel Taxi. What more could you ask for? 🙂
The chapter immediately starts off with Bluejam who takes the responsibility to watch over Ace and Luffy preventing them from seeing Sabo again. Though he threatens to slit their throats where they stand adding on too his ‘Badass Pirate’ persona, we get a little insight past the grimy rugged exterior that is Bluejam. The poor soul always wanted to be a noble saying, and I quote… “Getting born a noble isn’t something one can achieve from any kind of hard work! The only way is to get born under a blessed star…!!” (Bluejam the Wise) Now keep what he said in mind.
Remember what Elder Nyon said to Boa Hancock not too long ago questioning the star Luffy was born under to be so fortunate? Now Bluejam is here talking about being born under a lucky star to be born a noble. This information coupled with a revelation later on in the chapter will bring us to one of our theories.
Patience is a virtue and we’ll get to that theory eventually. 😉 In the meantime let’s hit up on our first theory! Thanks to Takashid for this one. Notice the partially exposed Jolly Roger on Bluejam’s ship? Look a little familiar? Were the Bluejam Pirates once apart of Kuma’s crew when he was a tyrant pirate or are we looking to much into this? 😄
Getting back, Ace decides they should leave Sabo alone for now and trust he’ll find his happiness. Meanwhile, Sabo is with with Mr. Uppity Douchebag finding his happiness in an interrogation room/customs office being blackmailed into selling out his brothers, but of course Sabo doesn’t give in. He goes on to later meet his little brother who I call Uppity Douchebag Jr. whose only purpose in this flashback I can discern is to tell Sabo about “Flammable Trash Day”. Which just so happens to be tomorrow and it involves burning all the “trash” in the kingdom to make it look nice for the Tenryuubito who are on the way for inspections. Ah, and when they say “trash” that includes all the people they see as less than them who live in the Grey Terminal. Those bastards! They’re doing it wrong, it’d be better to just turn those people into Soylent Green! No need to waste good people like that. (I’m going to hell, I know)
The next day after Sabo spends a night on the town spying on the guards to confirm what Uppity Douchebag Jr. told him he’s still not too sure because everyone around him is acting so normal. They want him to study and there’s supposed to be a mass burning of “trash” today? Human lives going up in flames? No way right? Going around town he actually asks nobles if they heard about this rumor and they casually admit that, yes, they did in fact know about this for months and he should keep quiet about it and go on his way. They’re better than the “trash” and there’s nothing to concern themselves over.
WTF!? It has to be said, but does this not remind you of the mentality and actions of the Nazi party with their “superior race” shit that led to the massacre of “inferior trash”? Looking at the parallels. The Goa Kingdom plans on burning people they find inferior, the knowledge of the atrocities are known and ignored by many of the citizens, this is all supposedly for “the greater good” of the kingdom. Ha! The Goa Kingdom is nothing but a WW2 Era Germany and they want Sabo to be a good little boy and join the Hitler Youth. -_-
Excuse me for ranting about Nazis a simple manga breakdown but the nobles of this kingdom struck a negative chord with me. Xd Ahem… Ace and Luffy find out about everything through Bluejam and, lol, what’s up with Ace’s shirt? That’s just about the worse shirt in existence. xD Bluejam wants to know where they hid their treasure before he sets the place afire and interrogates them.
Come later that night the Grey Terminal is set on fire with all of its hundreds of inhabitants sleeping in their homes. Now, I know it originally was made out to look like a terrible place only filled with crime and disease but from the looks of it a lot of good people just down on their luck are forced to take residence there. Men with families, wives, and children all being burned alive just so the kingdom can look cleaner for the Tenryuubito’s inspection. Not surprisingly this makes me hate the Tenryuubito even more than I already do because…they ummm…errrr…BECAUSE I CAN! >_>
Well at least one person gets what he deserves in the meantime. Betrayed, tricked, shat on, whatever you want to call it Bluejam receives the short the end of the stick and is locked out of the safety of the city and left to burn in the fires he created. Not only that but he’s used as the scapegoat and all the blame is put solely on him and his crew! 😄 Is it so wrong to appreciate the inevitably of karma as it comes around to slap Bluejam in the back of the head? ^_^ Unfortunately Ace and Luffy are also trapped in the fire and just untying themselves from a tree are on the move to escape.
Alright! Here comes the bulk of the theories and I apologize they’re so close to each other. Lol, but the ending left us with such a blast it’s to be expected all the questions will come at the end. 😉 Sabo tries to leave the city but is blown back by the wind before being apprehended by the guards. He looks up to a voice and it’s MONKEY D. DRAGON! ^(O_O)^ Btw, notice how Dragons’s appearance was foreshadowed earlier in the chapter? Whenever Dragon makes an appearance in the manga the wind is always blowing strongly. Anyway, Sabo and Dragon have a short discussion. First notice, Sabo tells Dragon, “As long as I stay here I’ll never be free!” Dragon has a revolution army and Sabo is a runaway! According to this Luffy thinks Sabo is dead but maybe that’s what Sabo wants everyone to think. See where I’m getting at?
Shortly after that it’s revealed Dragon was born in the Goa Kingdom. Now this does not necessarily mean he was born in any part of the city because the Goa Kingdom encompasses more than just that. Is this a coincidence though? Bluejam’s talk about nobles being born under a blessed star. Elder Nyon’s talk about Luffy being born under an odd star. Now Dragon born in a kingdom notable for its nobles. Hmm…
Dragon didn’t come alone. He brought his revolutionary army with him but I don’t know how big his army was at this point since he wasn’t considered the infamous threat he is today, but I digress. Out of the shadows steps a foot in heels saying “Dragon…!! Preparations have been made, babe!!!”… or…did the voice say, “Dragon…!! Everysing is ready!!!” according to Onemanga? Now to me this sounds like Ivankov but we all know what theory is going to pop up from the word “babe” and the fact Oda didn’t show the woman’s face. So here it is. 😛
Next chapter!? I hope Dragon reveals his Devil Fruit abilities and save Ace and Luffy! Then whatever plan he’s enacted I hope it ruins the nobles beyond repair and ruins the Tenryuubito’s future visit. After next chapter we’ll have a clearer view of how much longer this flashback will last. It’s been great so far so no real complaints here and that ends this week’s breakdown. Here’s your demotivational poster! Comment, predict, and enjoy! 😀
