Luffy is going to defeat Kaidou this arc and you want him to struggle against semi-fodder? lol
He was a commodore in MF, not a captain. The rank just below Rear admiral.
He also only started raising through the ranks after he left Loguetown.
Well i might be confused because in real life in America it goes lt commander commander captain then the 4 admiral ranks. Either way my 3 rank jump joke is still correct.
I've heard you say this before. He wasn't a rear admiral just before TS. He was a rear admiral before he quit the Marines and became a pirate, as far as we know he could've been viceadmiral level in Sabaody.
So you are under the impression that a rear admrial had such a tough and grueling time making it up the easy half of the gl that he jumped in power to va or admrial level? Lol and here i thought luffy had the hardest path....
Would it make you happy if i said "at least" rear admiral level?
All we can say for certain is he was rear admiral level, you have no facts or evidence to say otherwise....it wasnt even hinted at that he got stronger...
I have this big hunch that Hawkins is just 'playing' the lap dog and in truth he was just biding his time. EVERY time we see him focused on Luffy his eyes are shadowed, which in OP means something is going on. Smart money is on him becoming Law's informant in the organization so to speak (if not flat out joining the alliance) instead of an entertaining battle. Especially after Luffy just leveled 1/10 the town and one shot Holdem with Gum Gum Pistol 2.0. Sadly for Speed if this is all true, she is now setup for a very fast and horrible finale soon. Leave no witnesses...
Unless of course we just met the one good hearted henchman on Kaidou... oh, what am I saying. A non SH, non royalty female with the villain. She's screwed unless she is marriage material for someone.
Btw, anyone know what the deal is with the flying house? It flies in around page 8 and the next page it is just floating over the town.
Dude that roof has been flying up there for at least 2 chapters. I have been making jokes about the town of left overs having rocks on their roofs to stop them from flying away like that one is.
The flying roof is flying because it's made of a specially buoyant material.
Don't forget that this arc is not just Kaidou but BM would come, too. I hope Fujitora will deal with her since Akainu doesn't need him on MF anw.
See.... this is my problem with oda. He invents all these crazy and cool contraptions but then forgets about them or has other pirates not interested at all.
Dials exist, hell a lightning dial existed, why the fuck did wiper get sea stone, a rare reject dial, and NOT a lightning dial?!? Why dont all pirates have these dials? Why dont the px each have a dial in their hands instead of kuma's pads?
Apperently there is a way to make "unbreakable stone" why doesnt armor of this stone exist? Don kreig 2.0?
Now, we have flying wood, why arent there millions of flying pirate ships made of this wood?
And dont even get me started on turning items into zoan users + smile.....
Or the fact that it is possible to make lasers, or these anicent weapons everyone forgot about...
Not to mention, vp + judge figured out how to clone/ minipulate dna!!!! So judge makes batches of fodder? And vp takes it a slight step up and clones a kinda strong pirate..... VP do you not know what kind of creatures exist in OP? Fish men giants 3 eyes. Why are these px not 10 miles tall, able to breath under water and smarter then vp himself?
Also there is something called sea stone, hard to break, good against df users, hardly ever used in combat....
