    We can have cutaways from the battle or we can see the battle. I'm LOVING that we're actually seeing the struggle instead of just seeing its aftermath.

    I'm hoping that Snakeman form is his muscle balloon combined with Observation Haki, like Boundman is muscle balloon + Armament Haki and Tankman is Muscle Balloon + Obesity Haki.

    We still haven't had Smoothie's fruit identified yet, have we? I put forward the "Useless Useless no Mi". The longer its user stays useless the more powerful they become. Unfortunately, once they start to do something useful, it negates the power of the fruit and they thus lose all that accumulated power.

    And seriously: Why aren't we just letting Big Mom starve completely to death? This is Sanji nosebleed territory! "Haha, what a hilarious throwaway character trait. They're so quirky OH MY GOD, IT'S ENDANGERING THEIR LIVES?! NOW ITS INTEGRAL TO THE PLOT! WHAT IS HAPPENING?!!!"

    This is the manliest interpretation of that conversation and I refuse to believe that it was meant to be read any other way!

    Now I'm even more convinced the BMP will have their hands full after the Straw Hats escape. They're gathering too many of their forces at Cacao Island and with the Sea Slugs missing they can't see if anyone has slipped through their borders. Maybe that was Stussys intention when she told them about the Tamate Box. Everyone looking toward the Strawhats and missing the real threat.
    Also Germa to arrive at Cacao and wreck shit up.

    You gotta wonder where things go for the BM pirates from here on out. I mean in the best case scenario they remain mostly intact but with their reputation torn to shreds. And in the worst it'll be a WB crew after his demise type of situation. You sorta hope for something that still allows for some of these dozens of characters to play a part in the world building.

    I hope they remain intact and appear as side characters at Elbaf - in some capacity.

    I'm assuming Snake Man's usefulness works best with observation haki, and is also used to grab hold of the opponent, and swing the opponent around like a whip hitting the ground back and forth. If anyone is familiar with how the Hulk in the Marvel movies grabs opponents Loki/Thor and swings them around, hitting them on the ground.

    And I'm not sure but on page 6 Luffy is listening to Katakuri's spirit/personality not anything from Rayleigh's flashback dialogue. Because Rayleigh laughs with a Wahaha! not a Fufufufu that perhaps I think Katakuri does.
    How much can you do? Just grab a ball and juggle.

Or manage to snatch back Brulee and give Luffy a taste of his own medecine : trap him inside the mirror world while he himself goes after the rest of the crew. Yet he didn't : instead he fell to his pride and let himself get dragged in this pointless duel. That's how I mean Luffy is stalling for time : the battle is as serious as it can get, but if as a bonus it makes Katakuri overlook everything else he could be doing then all the better.
    So in what sense Luffy was exploiting Katakuri's character? I guess you forgot what word "exploiting" means then.

    As about Katakuri stabbing himself, itisn't due to pride. He threw his pride away instead by revealing himself to Flampe. Then he declared Luffy as someone on his level. How is that "pride"? He's dropping the act and having a honest fight.

    No it's okay everyone. Cracker just needs some more beauty sleep.

    I'm excited to see the snake form of Gear 4. Luffy has most likely actually done this form before unlike the tank form which was purely situational. With all the fatigue Luffy's been building up, I'm assuming he'll be out of commission until maybe even the middle stages of Wano.

    I'd assume that a failure to defend against a rookie pirate would be a serious dent on her claim to remaining an emperor. Maybe not downright demoted but it'd have to be "emperor?" from that point on. But i can't see them interacting friendly with Luffy and the gang after all that. Possibly ganging up with their opponents maybe, but that'd feel a bit redundant. I'd be more interested in them fending of the vultures circling the carcass of what was their lands or allying with others to prop themselves up once more.

    I guess the term I was looking is frenemy. If some of them appear at Elbaf, I expect them to be on neither side instead of pursuing their own interests. But yeah, most of them have to fend off the vultures so I don't expect the capacities appearing at Elbaf to be that large.

    I can see Katakuri, Pudding, Chiffon and possibly Baron Tomago, all stepping up and asking BM to spare the SHs. Oda already established that BM listens to her subordinates when she spared Pedro because Pekoms vouched for him.

    I can see the news about the BM pirates being humiliated by the SH prompting Blackbeard's crew to try and swoop in and take advantage of BM weakened state. That or the Marines will make a move on WCI.

    ODA:ITS BECAUSE IN THAT ERA EVERYONE USES THEIR LIVES TO FIGHT FOR THEIR DREAMS. FOR AN ENEMY WHEN THEIR DREAM HAS BEEN SHATTERED,IT IS AS PAINFUL AS DEATH,I BELIEVE FOR A PIRATE NOT TO KILL AN ENEMY , IT'S GIVING THEM A SECOND CHANCE TO FIGHT FOR THEIR DREAMS.

    If that's the case that boat is definitely gonna sink when she gets as big as Oars.

    So a pirate crew is going to be an escort to the reverie? I guess the dwarfs are so cute no one will take their piracy seriously (except Akainu maybe).

    Dogtooth continue to try his best to put Luffy down and failing and he still believes it is a good idea to let him power up after almostcatching up to his level of dodging. At least I hope next stage of the fight will be entertaining.

    So the Big Mom Pirate finally decided that maybe it was time to take the strawhats seriously. It took time but at least now they are being reasonable. I liked the panel. Really give you the feeling of a assembling all your forces to take an a giant threat. Kind of remind me the marines getting to MarineFord.

    I wonder what Sanji plan to do. It could give a nice sequence like the quick kick to oven to get Chiffon.

    So Snack is still around just demoted.

    Also I don't think the supernovas are anymore rookies than Ace when he died. So it seems silly to me to call them that. Maaaybe Luffy because he went into hiatus but not the rest.

    Don't mess with the Law if you don't have an Ace up your sleeve.

    I still think there's pride in the fact that Katakuri didn't want the fight to be won thanks to someone else's interference. It's not all black or white ; he does cast away the perfect big brother fašade, reveals his true appearance and accepts the consequences. He is angered by Flambee's actions because he may have grown some respect for Luffy's fighting prowess and feels he owes him a fair fight. But he also wants the fight to go on for a victory that he would owe to his own merits, when he really should be finishing this as quickly as possible to go help sort out the giant mess. What is that if not pride (with a hint of selfishness) ?

    As for exploiting Katakuri's character, I don't mean manipulating him of course, that's completely unlike Luffy. Still, he managed to transform "I want you dead as soon as possible" into "I'm enjoying this fight, let's make it long and fair". Katakuri certainly doesn't pull his punches, yet he also lets Luffy stand back up again and again. If instead his opponent were a no-nonsense ruthless person like Doflamingo or Crocodile, Luffy would probably be dead by now.

    It's like when a boxer takes the step from the amateurs to being a pro. Sure he's had hundreds of fights before but he's new to this level.

    Yeah that line at the end with Luffy made me think that this is all happening according to his pace.
