So that is how the Donquixote Family fit into the Tenryuubito…they were one of the twenty creators who established the World Government 800 years ago. Now I see why Doflamingo was able to pull off the stunt with the CP-0 and get the Tenryuubito to agree with it, because he is one of the Tenryuubito. So much for Doflamingo being just a mere pirate…but with the status Doflamingo has, it begs the question, why did he become a pirate? It was stated that Gol D Roger inspired Doflamingo, but what exactly is Doflamingo after now?
Once again the monstrosity of hatred becomes the perspective which people become blinded by. As it was with Ace, the world represented by the World Government made the source of his blood, his father, the villain and the object towards which to direct all hatred and blame towards. Now here with Rebecca, Doflamingo has made the source of her blood, the Riku family blood, the object of hatred and negativity. To think such a turn of events was possible, to make Ace’s execution and the context in which it took place in so relevant this arc. Really, what a magnificent chapter.
That sure was one eventful chapter. I’m still getting over the past of Don Chinjao’s because I’m still laughing at what happened to him at the end of last chapter. The revelation of Bartolomeo’s interest in Luffy didn’t help the situation at all, in fact I’m finding it incredibly hard to stop laughing now because once again it blind-sided me in how extreme and ridiculously hilarious One Piece can be. Bartolomeo a Strawhat fanboy? Oh dear goodness, I expected it to be revealed that he admired Luffy but a complete fanboy, I am contently stunned and amused. Well played Oda-sensei.
I don’t even know where to start, so many developments have happened in a small period of time and my word are they good. I am so excited the crew headed to Dressrosa after Punk Hazard, I was hoping such a development would come about and it did, but hahah I did not expect the creative flare of the Island to be so creative – WALKING TOYS! Strawhats in disguises! And my goodness, is that a tournament I smell?! Oh yes please, I completely wasn’t expected such a twist and even though I had wondered what happened with Ace’s Mera Mera no Mi after he passed, this development came and twisted my socks right off. LET’S GO
