[Theory] One Piece – There’s Something About Monet (Nakama Theory)

One Piece - Monet - by teebohne

Monet the Harpy – art by teebohne

I really can’t help myself in pushing forward this theory as I have quite the obsession with Monet’s character. Although I will make an effort to be as objective as I possibly can, there will be a certain degree of bias driving me during my interpretation of the scenes which I will be using to support my theory surrounding Monet regarding her potential as a Straw Hat nakama candidate due to my obsession. Be it my delusion, hope, insanity, ego or something even more intangible, there is some incomprehensibly mysterious force compelling me to follow through with this desire.

[Theory] One Piece – The Potential Of Monet

One Piece - Monet art

The Yuki-Onna Harpy, Monet

Lets take the potential of Monet’s character further and delve into the essence of a possible role Monet can serve as both a member of the Straw Hat Pirates and as a character within the One Piece story.

The core of the potential I am talking about is how a character can flesh out the existing story of One Piece and further expand on what has been established through 798 chapters. The common theme with the female Straw Hat members is that their dreams add an immense about of development to the world of One Piece – the geography of the world and the history of the world. From my perspective, a future female Straw Hat member will impact the story in similar manner with their dream.

One Piece Chapter 797 – Kyros And Rebecca

One Piece chapter 797 - Rebecca's decision

Do it Rebecca, express to Kyros how you really feel!

Finally Kyros has accepted the beat of his heart in favour of the sensitivity of his insecurity. Kyros really did want to live together with Rebecca yet his past burdening him with regret and shame overwhelmed any desire he held towards drawing Rebecca away from her “innocence” towards himself. Kyros was afraid to taint Rebecca with his shame and ruin any chance at happiness she had. Yet within that selfless act of trying to protect his daughter, Kyros was blind to how selfish he really was in making a decision for Rebecca when she had every right to make the decision alongside Kyros. Rebecca recognised the lies Kyros has been telling himself to numb the sensation in his heart and to justify the decision he has made, and thanks to Luffy spurring her on, she was finally able to shatter the cage Kyros built around his heart. Kyros has been physically saving Rebecca throughout this arc, yet in this chapter, Rebecca was the one who emotionally saved Kyros, by accepting her father for who he is and not what he is.

Bleach Chapter 639 – Golden Ashisogi Jizou

Bleach chapter 639 - Mayuri's madness

There really is no limits to what Mayuri wouldn’t do to satisfy his cravings…

Wow, I am stunned, I am honestly struggling to find words to comprehend exactly what happened. Did Pernida just snap off a finger to mutate another hand? Did Mayuri’s Bankai just give birth to another Bankai? Did Mayuri really redesign his Bankai into THAT? I knew Mayuri was twisted and psychotic but the guy seriously takes experimentation to a level even I wasn’t expecting from him. Just how far hasn’t he gone yet? And yeah, I don’t believe the fight is over just yet.

One Piece Chapter 796 – Escaping The Marines

One Piece chapter 796 - Kyros's decision

Oh Kyros…the country is ready to accept you

With the cast of the die signalling Luffy and Law’s capture, the Marines finally begin their pursuit of the heroes of Dressrosa. With three days having passed since the battle against the Donquixote Pirates ended, Luffy has finally recovered and is now in state to follow Sanji and Co., but first, some unfinished business to deal before leaving Dressrosa. With the arc a chapter or two away from concluding, it will be incredibly interesting to see what Luffy ends up doing before leaving Dressrosa, especially with him now being regarded as Dressrosa’s hero by all the citizens.

Bleach Chapter 638 – Mayuri VS Pernida

Bleach chapter 638 - Pernida

The schemes of the twisted…

Somehow this battle seems so fitting with two twisted existences beyond the boundaries of logic going at it. The Left Arm of the Soul King deluded by individuality and the insanity of the Gotei 13 known as Mayuri driven by the curiosity of his own delusion. With each unexpected development, each has a counter ready to get on the others nerves, and for Pernida, quite literally. The victor will definitely be the one who doesn’t run out of surprises first.

Fairy Tail Chapter 447 – The Return Of Laxus

Fairy Tail chapter 447 - Laxus returns

He’s back!

Just when Fairy Tail find themselves with their backs against the wall, Laxus arrives with an electrifying entrance to tear it down blasting the arrogance of the Spriggan Twelve members back into their face. If the Alvarez Empire thought taking down Ishgar would be easy, clearly they have not crossed paths with a Fairy Tail mage before. With Laxus up to the challenge of silencing the hollow taunts of the Spriggan Twelve and matching their overwhelming power with his own magic, the battle between the two lands has just begun! Ishgar VS Alvarez. Fairy Tail VS The Spriggan Twelve.

Fairy Tail Chapter 446 – The Desert King

Fairy Tail chapter 446 - Fairy Tail VS Spriggan Twelve

Fairy Tail VS The Spriggan Twelve

What an interesting surprise, even with Mest’s intense chaining of teleports to get Makarov a fair distance away from the Alvarez Empire, Azir, the Desert King, still managed to follow the two via his sand to the main group. Seems like the Spriggan Twelve may have expected something of this nature to occur before Mest went in to save Makarov. Whatever the case, right now Fairy Tail have to battle their way towards the coast of Alakitasia where Mest can teleport the group within Sorano’s underwater vessel, Olympia, allowing them escape.
