YOSH!!! Welcome WRA to the Chapter 599 One Piece Breakdown! 599!? You know what this means? 1 MORE CHAPTER UNTIL 600!!! I’m going to do something special that day, like strip naked and run wild in the streets. Yes… Look out for me in the news!
Here’s this week’s Short One Piece Funny and BOPP!
On with the breakdown!
Isn’t it nice how Oda is taking requests for what he should draw on the cover pages? Isn’t that lovely rainbow in the background nice? Isn’t it nice carnivorous sheep are eating meat? Wai- what?
I admit Boa made me laugh hard when she pulled that fake nose and mustache stunt. Lol, I mean the seriousness of her actions is was what really got me. She really thought that would be an appropriate disguise. xD Ah, good times Boa but sadly we must say goodbye. This may be the last we’ll see of her for awhile guys and girls. From uppity spoiled Shichibukai empress that no one liked to uppity spoiled Shichibukai empress that became likable and fell for our hero’s heart. You’ve come a long way Boa Hancock and never forget, no matter what you do, you’ll always be forgiven. No, not because you’re beautiful, but because you’re actually a likable character. Actually this isn’t a goodbye! This is a “See ya later!” Right Luffy who never says goodbye? Luffy never says goodbye!?
Hmm… I guess it is so… That’s very admirable of him. =) Now what do we have here?
Ah, dammit! -_- Well, I’m sure there’s a deeper meaning behind what he said. Like when he says his farewells he never means to part forever. He’ll see you again in the future and he doesn’t believe goodbyes are meant to last. Maybe it’s just a translation error. I never trusted those old chapter translations anyway.
Now let’s get to serious epicness! Some people may say Luffy’s character has really developed here when the fake Luffy is bothering him and Luffy decides not to fight or make a commotion. Some people…but most remember Luffy in a small bar of Jaya when Bellamy and his crew picked a fight with him and Zoro. What did they do in response? They took the beating and decided not to fight. This is no different from what Luffy is doing 2 years later on Sabaody Archipelago. Not fighting a useless fight. Well, that is until fake Luffy pulls out a gun and it’s a wrap from there! Luffy doesn’t need to raise his hands or even take his hands off his backpack straps. Putting his 2 years of Haki training in action he uses Color of Observation to predict the path and velocity of the bullet and dodge it (maybe he even predicted when fake Luffy would pull the trigger), then Color of the Conqueror to overwhelm the fake Luffy’s spirit and knock him out. KABLAM! And that’s all she wrote. Don’t forget the most important part; Luffy’s badass nonchalant walk away as if nothing happened. 😉 Now that’s how you come back after 2 years of training! I’m so proud of you Luffy. ^(T_T)^
(Note: While we’re on Haki I’ll let you know I made a mistake last week when I said CoC can’t be improved or become stronger. It does grow stronger, with personal growth. It grows with the hardships and experience the character goes through in life. It’s just that you can’t “train” it to grow stronger.)
We move on to the Thousand Sunny and Franky. Ah, I missed you Thousand Sunny but I’m still wondering… WTH happened between you, Kuma, Duval, and Shakky!? I’m also excited to see what new weapons Franky put in you.
GAAHHH!!! What is that!? From what hell spawn of a madman’s laboratory did you crawl out of and once found defective banished to masquerade as a man in the eyes of humanity!? Franky? =( Nah, that’s too harsh. Lol, you know I think I’m getting used to his new look oh so slowly. I just stare at it for 2 hours every day until my mind accepts it for what it is or my eyes begin to bleed. Apparently, Oda deals with Franky’s appearance in chapter 600 from a little spoiler I read. >_>
Hmm…Chopper is acting too naïve for my liking but at least thanks to him the Marines “confirm” the fake Straw Hats are their targets. Franky comments on the possibility of Brook not coming back. Yeah…sure… Oh snap, Sentoumaru!!! I even missed you! For a long time now I’ve thirsted for Luffy’s vengeance on you. I don’t hate you Sentoumaru, far from it. You’re a cool character and you blab a lot giving us a lot of information. I just want you to get your ass kicked so we can truly test Luffy’s improvement. Alright, so maybe you won’t get your ass kicked but at least bleed! BLEED! *_* I love that guy. He takes two PX’s with him and after 2 years of development I wonder how much Vegapunk has improved his human weapons.
Lastly, we’re reintroduced to Zoro! Oh, the smug bastard… Why are girls all over the world fainting at Zoro’s presence? He was gar before but with that new scar it seems he’s reached a new level of hotness. Do scars really make you that hot?
*gets institutionalized as a suicide risk*
Dammit… I blame this on Zoro and his Mihawk like ship cutting skills.
I just want to make one last note. I don’t think we’ve ever seen the cross on the blade of Zoro’s sword (Shuusui) before. It seems Mihawk influenced so maybe we’ll get a story on that.
That ends last week’s breakdown! Here’s your demotivational poster! Comment, predict, and enjoy! 😀
