YOSH!!! Welcome WRA to another One Piece Chapter Breakdown!!! Were you not satisfied with this chapter? WERE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED!? No more Gladiator for me…>_> Lol, anyway I thought this was a really great chapter. We’ve seen a lot more of Dragon than ever before thanks to this flashback and slowly pulling back the cloak of mystery on Luffy’s dad which gives him an immeasurable air of obscurity. Speaking o f flashbacks, they’re over! As much as I enjoyed them it never hurts to get back to the main story, so while we’re on that note let’s get this breakdown done and head over to the present. *_*
FIIRRSSST! It’s time for this week’s AMV and BOPP! Btw, next week I’m going to start putting in a new feature instead of the AMVs. They’re only so many of them and Youtube has been throwing a tantrum for the longest time now and taking down all the best ones. The big baby. ~_~
Onward to the breakdown!
You know…if you look reeeeaaal close you’ll notice a monkey in the background performing magic. O_O Yeah, I know where’d that thing come from? *goes back to drooling over Dmonio and Sadie-chan*
As the chapter starts Luffy is still grieving over Sabo’s “death” (>_>) and of course Ace is trying to move on. You can’t sit around crying all day because it doesn’t change a thing. You have to look to the future and learn from past experiences to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Luffy though only 7 years old at this time even understands that and makes the declaration he wants to become stronger and stronger and stronger and stronger and *breathes* STRONGER!!! To become stronger so no one close to him ever disappears again. Oh cruel fate. T_T
Ace’s promise never to die was a comfort to Luffy and unfortunately he couldn’t keep that promise but Ace did carry on Sabo’s dream in his 3 years of sailing on the open seas. Living a life of freedom and no regrets. It all started thanks to Sabo’s dream and Ace, now solely Luffy, have carried on that dream. What really caught my eye is the reason why both Ace and Luffy started their pirating at age 17. According to Sabo a man is truly recognized as a noble at 18 so he decided 17 was the right year to set out, so he would not be brandished with the title he loathed so much. Why then did he set out when he was only 10 years old? Well, most likely it was because his “home” was suffocating him. He could no longer tolerate living in a country that killed countless innocent people without a second’s thought or sympathy. They even went on with their daily lives like nothing happened. Studying, riding bikes through the park, having wet dreams about the Tenryuubito. You know the deal. I’d cut my wait short too and sail out for my dreams if that was the case.
(Muhaha, I borrow this idea from Gavin and Tenrai 🙂 *runs off to Sniper Island*)
Now on to Mr. Dragon! What in the hell was he doing in Shimotsuki Village!? O_O The village with the dojo where both Zoro and Kuina trained! Whether or not Dragon’s visit to the village will hold a significant connection to Zoro or Kuina will have to be determined later. He could have been there just for supplies. It could have just been a nice cameo for two of our favorite swordsmen. *gets sword whipped* X_X My fault…swordsman and swordswoman (holy crap that’s actually a word!). ~_~ Here’s a something to look at though. Notice the conversation here and take in these words, “Hurry up and patch him up!” Lol, you know what I’m getting at. Who is being treated here? Remember this is the same night of the Tenryuubito visit and thus the same day Sabo “died”. Heh, no more polls on whether Sabo is alive or not! You all had your votes and now you have to stick with them. 😛
Well, enough of that for now. Let’s talk about the Goa Kingdom reverting back to their old ways and making a whole new trash mountain. They’re assholes! Ok, we’re done talking about them. ^_^ Luffy and Ace continue training and in a dispute Ace lets Luffy fight a bear by himself. LOL! What a dick! 😄 Of course Luffy gets hurt and Ace apologizes and from there their relationship develops even further. I find it hilarious how much Luffy sucked at fighting back then and how bad he was with his DF. xD
7 years later Ace sets off to the sea at the ripe age of 17 years old and already the fangirls are squealing. Back off he’s not legal yet! Damn you Ace! >_< Ace will set out by himself and garner himself a respectable crew and reputation (he kinda got asked to join the Shichibukai). Somewhere along the line he’ll come across the Mera Mera no Mi and of course we know his crew gets an ass whooping by Whitebeard and they eventually join him. Good on you Ace. 😉 Seriously though, it was good life. ^_^
Luffy then spends the next 3 years training to become stronger and after those 3 years he later sets out to the seas and that’s where the beginning of our series starts. O_O It’s nice to see all the support Luffy has from Fuschia Village (his hometown) though it is mixed. Right Woop Slap?
Was anybody else laughing their ass off when Dadan cried after both Ace and Luffy left and she tried to hide her emotion by acting all coarse? 😄
The chapter comes to an end with the end to the flashback. The last moment of the flashback is his shout to the heavens for all to hear, “I’m gonna become the Pirate King!” An all to familiar dream by now which always brings warm feelings of inspiration. Unfortunately, now he has come to a sudden and saddening realization. He’s too weak…
Now don’t misinterpret, Luffy is strong! Strong as hell I might add and this actually isn’t the first time he’s realized how much he’s needed to improve. Yeah, when he lost to Aokiji his crew’s life was in jeopardy and he couldn’t protect them. In response to that he got stronger and developed a new technique so he can fight at full capacity, all so he could protect his nakama and what was precious to him. Now he has hit that dead end again and realizes he’s still not strong enough. This time though he realizes not only is he not strong enough to protect his nakama but also he’s not strong enough to reach his dream, Pirate King! That’s the dream that has pushed him so far up until now and it’s sad to see him stumble on the awful truth like this. I daresay, he seriously underestimated the New World and it’s good he got caught up in the war before heading over there. He could have very likely died rushing to that new challenge. Now he has a heads up you could say and knows the true strength of the second half of the Grand Line. Well, he’s in luck. He’s in the right place at the right time and under the right conditions. The question is. Will he stay and train or will he set out to find his crew?
I look at it this way. If he really cares for his nakama, which he does (dur!), then he’ll be responsible and stay to grow stronger so he can protect them. There’s no point in finding his crew and setting out if he stays at his current level because then they’ll just end up in the same predicament. Defeated and decimated…maybe even worse… Of course, he needs to get stronger not only to protect his nakama but to obtain his dream. To become the Pirate King! That ends this week’s breakdown! Let’s hope for another great chapter next week! Here’s your demotivational poster. Comment, predict, and enjoy! 😀
