One Piece Chapter 921 – Shutenmaru

Kaido has such an amazing character design, in both his human and Dragon forms. Oda-sensei completely succeeded in conveying Kaido by just his image as being someone incredibly brutal, regal and inhuman. Kaido’s sheer design demands attention and beckons the reader to take note of what he as a character does. We know next to nothing about Kaido and yet as readers we find ourselves entranced by him.

One Piece Chapter 806-810 – The Battle Of Zou

One Piece chapter 809 - colour spread

What an awesome colour spread

Looks like many major events were happening around the One Piece world concurrently. For Luffy defeating Doflamingo to have ultimately, albeit indirectly, saved a nation from one of Kaidou’s “calamities”, I find myself wondering what other rippling affects the Straw Hat Pirates feats since entering the New World have been caused within the New World, especially ones with lasting and major implications. By removing Jack from Zou, the Mink tribe were given the opportunity to survive and over time, drive the remnant forces of Kaidou/Jack away. Still the question remains, why is Jack so passionately after Raizou?
