One Piece Chapter 897 – The Germa 66 Arrives

One Piece chapter 897 - The Germa 66 Arrives

Show them the terror of the Vinsmoke name!

Finally, we get to see the Germa 66 in action and what they are capable of in all their scientific and heartless glory. The Germa 66 may have started as antagonist but over the course of the arc, they have transformed into a faction that WILL become valuable allies to the Straw Hat Pirates in the future.
