    Yea I can imagine his voice in the anime saying those things. Bet he will change his tune in the near future.

    I don't always get to do these comparisons these days, but this was such a cool chapter that I couldn't skip doing one for it.
    • Don't think I mentioned this in a previous one yet, so I will here: for some reason, Mangastream calls Bege's cover story "All My Family", instead of "Oh My Family" (which Jaimini's Box and VIZ get right).
    • In the official translation, Hiyori says that Oden used "two full-sized swords". Also, where the scanlations just said that she and Momo received the swords "before his execution", in the official, she says "On the day before his execution".
    • In JB, Hawkins seems to think Kid has already died from refusing to submit, as he says "he's probably dead". In MS and VIZ, it's more indicated that he thinks that Kid will eventually be killed for this reason, where he says "He will die." Also, in MS, Hawkins states that Kid's crewmates are being told that they have to do this and that for Kaido/Orochi to "think about releasing your captain"; in JB, they have to do so "if you want to save your captain". VIZ goes closer to JB's version, saying that they have to follow these conditions "or your captain dies".
    • The MS version of the chapter seems to hint the possibility that Law may be having second thoughts with the alliance and that Hawkins has a reason to think so, the latter saying "Had a change of heart, have we?", and Law answering that he doesn't have to answer those questions, then saying that, if the shadowy figure's plan is to let him escape, he'll "happily join in". JB more seems to suggest that Hawkins is just wondering if Law will change his mind now that he's learned more about the situation in Wano (just asking "But how do you feel now? Have you changed your mind?"), and Law says it's none of his concern, then just saying he'll "go along with" a plan that involves letting him escape, all of which comes across more like 'I don't really care what your plan is, but if I can escape because of it, then whatever, no complaints here'. The official version definitely seems to agree more with JB, with Hawkins asking if, now that they've come to Wano, "Has your opinion changed at all?", Law just answers that he's the one asking the questions, and then says to the mystery person "If letting me walk is part of your plot, then consider me a willing participant." (By walking out.)
    • Hyo says in the MS version "You must learn this", while in JB and VIZ, he says "But you can do this!" (VIZ version, JB is similar.)
    • The team in Kibi that Snake-Eyes is leading is called the "Rebel Commanders Squad" in JB, but is instead called "Yakuza Leaders" in MS and "Yakuza Rousing Team" in VIZ.
    • When Nami asks Kin'emon about the message change, in MS (and, I believe, the original Japanese too), she asks if it goes from "habu" to "babu" by doing this. (JB omits that particular thing in their translation, since that doesn't make as much sense in English.) The official version attempts to translate the question by asking if it goes from "viper" to "wiper".
    • In MS, Kin'emon states that they've relied on their "saviors", plural, implying he means others (like the SHs) in addition to Yasuie; in JB and VIZ, he says "savior", singular, just talking about Yasu. Also, in JB, Kin says that they still "have much to do", but that they're increasing their ranks to their "desired numbers", while in MS and VIZ, he says that there are still "problems" to be considered, but they're gaining manpower at an "ideal rate".
    • The "Golden Kagura" from the scanlations is just called a "Golden Festival" in the official translation. Also, Apoo's words in each of the three versions are a bit different; in MS, he says "I ain't tryna have a falling out with anyone" (which feels ironic given what we found out about him); in JB, he says "The ones who refuse to join your crew don't know what they're missing out on" (which sounds almost like it's making a reference to what we found out about him), and in VIZ, it just says "I'm not gonna get left out of the fun!"
    • With the children nearby, the exchange is "Who is that?" "One of the Numbers", sounding like they mean Apoo specifically. In MS and VIZ, they say "What are those?"/"What is that?" "The Numbers", apparently talking about all of the big monsters (maybe including Apoo in that, too). When Queen refers to them on the next page, he calls them "the worst sort of drunks" in MS, says "they've all got drinking problems" in JB, and notes that they're "such messy drunks" in VIZ.
    • Big Mom agrees with Kaido stating the banquet will be great and mentions, in MS/JB, "the/our anniversary". In the official version, she states that they're "celebrating" (presumably she means celebrating their new alliance).
    Also of note, the next chapter is apparently gonna be coming out on VIZ early, unless they wrote the date wrong; it says September 13 (which is a Friday).

    with Big Mom's crew plus the unseen flying six, the numbers, the calamities and the rest of Kaido's crew I'm not sure how the straw hats can beat all these guys without more help from either the grand fleet or another Yonko group and that's not even considering Big Mom and Kaido who I have no idea how they can win against one let alone both of them

    Even if it were just for a few pages I would've loved to see Law and Hawkins BS powers face off. I'll just have to imagine how nonsensical it got.

    The added detail of Apoo being in league with Kaido for a bit longer puts me off a little bit. Why does Kaido have to jump off of a Sky Island to meet with Apoo. Buggy would be impressed by that overly flashy entrance.

    The last page was insane of course and I'm amused that this single act has surpassed many whole arcs in terms of quality as well as quantity. I thought it would have concluded a while ago but it keeps going.

    He didn't do it to have a flashy entrance to get Kidd and Hawkins to join him. He was bored and tried to kill himself (which was clearly stated on the chapter it happened). It was most likely Apoo, who was already Kaido's subordinate, who knew where and when will Kaido do the jump to "set up" the meeting knowing that Kaido will be interested in making them his lackeys.

    Time to call in the Grand Fleet. Wano is going to be the site of the biggest war since Marineford.

    It doesn't matter which party set it up, the fact that it wasn't a chance encounter takes away from the scene. That detail was a bit gratuitous to me even though it did literally tie up a loose end.

    Why shouldn't Kaidou arrive there jumping from the clouds? That's the coolest entrance scene for his tough act and drunken charisma. And it's not like going to the sky island is difficult for a flying dragon.

    Speaking of that, I've seen people theorize that maybe Urouge is also with Kaido (maybe one of the numbers?) since he just happened to be in that Sky Island and that's also a pretty strange coincidence.

    Regadring the person who helped Law, if it is not Drake, Sengoku or Kyoshiro then I imagine it to be:

    Tashigi

    Lol but unfortunately Oda is not known for the accuracy of his silhouettes.

    There's some chapters where you read it and you just know Oda did a couple of pages less than normal even before you look at the pagecount. This was the kind of chapter where I would have guessed a plus size 19 pages right after reading, even though it's actually just 15. What a week for One Piece!

    Bege's story has taken a near-immediate turn from the direction most people expected it to go. No idea where he could go from here, but the implications are interesting. We don't know whether this is taking place the day after Whole Cake Island or a little later, so it's pretty likely the Reverie is still running in the cover pages. It'd be very interesting to get some extra glimpses of it this way, but I kinda doubt we will.

    The new about how entry and exit from Wano works has interesting implications. It's a pretty common theory that the island is a bunch of smaller islands put together by the Ancient Giants, but the diagram shown this week really doesn't look much like that. It looks to me a lot more like a solid, if oddly shaped, landmass rather than an island cluster.

    The Numbers are an odd-looking group. I'm not convinced that they're Ancient Giants yet. The body shapes are off compared to what we've seen, and the horns are all wrong. It doesn't feel right that Onigashima, the skull on Punk Hazard, Oars, Little Oars Jr and Kaido would all have the same horns while the rest of the species is totally different. I'm just not seeing it. They could be from a seriously diluted bloodline, or be failed attempts from the World Government to recreate the Ancient Giants, but they're certainly not the same thing.

    But of course the big news is Kaido and Big Mom's alliance. Holy shit guys. I think the fact that even Onigashima itself looked shocked is all the confirmation needed of what a huge deal this is. It's absolutely the right choice for the direction of the story though. I wrote a lot of words about the possibility of a team-up over in the Wano thread the other week which I won't repeat all of here, but my feelings are essentially that this is a necessary development to flesh out Kaido's somewhat lacking own crew. It also raises the chances of Luffy being able to take on an Emperor in a one on one fight (or at least do most of the fighting himself). A team effort to topple Kaido was a good theory before this, but now that there's definitely enough enemies to give all of Luffy's huge alliance a decent fight before it comes to that, we can feel a lot more certain our boy is gonna stand his ground against either Kaido or Big Mom for real.

    Worth noting also, this is confirmed as the first chapter of volume 95. This is just the opening of the book. Imagine how much more crazy things are going to get if this is the starting point!

    If the Reveri is over, he escorted the Dressrosa people back to Dressrosa, on his way he got orders from Akainu to check out Wano.
    Law and Koby might know each other from the Rocky Port incident.
    It's all hypothetical and very unlikely since Law's reaction isn't as it should be if it were someone from the outside or a marine.

    C'mon, guys and girls! This chapter deserves more than a single page of 17 posts!

    one of those "number"-guys Looks just like Linlin's "lifespan-collectors" from Tottoland (just with Horns and sharp teeth).
    If they are Zoans they might be still just wax in O-tama's Hands.

    Marco needs to get whatever Whitebeard commanders are left and head on over. We still got Jinbe and whoever he brings to the party.

    Well after what happened in Punk Hazard with Doflamingo nearly killing him, I wouldn't be surprised if Smoker and Tashigi and a faction of Marines went rogue and were just sort of acting as humanitarian mercenaries rather than having to operate under the Marine flag.
