The original post is updated.
Could you tell us what the VIZ version says about this part, please?
I didn't catch the "You'll only interrupt Mama's ceremony... over my dead body" part and I'll like to know if what Nami says to Luffy, and what he says in return, is different in VIZ or not.
Sure. Here's the dialogue from that picture in VIZ:
Cracker: Do not even dream that you can defeat me. You shall not interfere with Mama's tea party!
Nami: No, Luffy! Don't turn this into a serious fight! That's not our goal here! We need to get past this forest to Sanji...
Luffy: I don't know any way to fight...other than serious!
Quick question: Is Viz using "Totto Land" now? Did they switch to it?
Someone, I think, said it that way in the podcast the other week, but that's not a perfect guide; there were a few different pronunciations of Vivre going around this week, for example. They don't have any straight up guide for how everything should be officially read, the different speakers can bring their own interpretations and make mistakes.
Personally I hope they stick with Totland, I think it reads better, whether Oda intended it or not.
(and as a side note, how do people here pronounce Vivre? I'm partial to vai-ver myself)
Yeah, I personally use Totland myself, but was a bit confused since a few OPP people have said Totto Land and those guys are usually Viz followers.
I pronounce Vivre "Veev-rey" or "Veev-ur" but this is coming from a guy who pronounced Luffy as "Luhffy" for over 2 years :P

Huh, unusual for them to change anything like that, but given how recently the name came out they can probably do it more easily as opposed to Aladine and Zoro.
Yeah, they've done stuff like this in the past. Off the top of my head, early into Zou they went with Dogupine and changed it to Dogstorm a chapter later. They'll change some translation choices for the weekly chapters (then make it more consistant in the volume releases), it's generally just their older translation choices/ones already used in the released volumes they don't change.

I think it would be cool idea to post some scenes from english viz volume relase- pictures done with camera or smartphone with great quality.
Just to see all the detail. I love how in volumes thanks to good quality print and decent paper art looks really good.
To make a point - just to compare volume quality of scene to scanlation
Its incomparable in quality in my opinion. I would like if some of users would post here pictures of viz relase of some great scenes that we had seen.
I'll go through my set for highlights eventually, I'm sure, but for now I just wanna say how nice it is that Viz actually bothers to tackle the sound effects. Oda writes a very "loud" manga, but so much of what goes down there is just outright ignored by practically every scanlator. It just does that much more to bring the series to life.
Did I understood correctly that you will go through some scenes and post pictures of them here ?
Scene where Zoro goes under water to fight Hody- page where they are face to face.
Sanji pulling out Hell Memories page would be cool to see.
Page where Jinbe and Luffy are on a rock and blood transfusion takes place.
Page where Kidd is shown for the first time after Timeskip- I mean when we see him whole with bounty box.
This page would be nice to see in volume format
I would go on with a list but I think its unproper to overuse lucky day
I didn't realise quite how blurry some of these shots were until they were already uploaded, and I won't have a chance to try again until after the weekend, and I'm sorry about that, but you should be able to see what's going on in them well enough for now.
Zoro VS Hody

Sanji Hell Memories panel shows that scanlators drawn Sanji themselves - the one on picture you sent is WAAAAAY smaller than on translated scans.
I really like how panel with Jinbe and Luffy looks - scanlation took out a ton of shading effect - rock they are on and ground around it looks completely different, way more 3D than on online scans.
Dolamingo getting out of rock with those sound effects looks great.
