Yeah nothing surprising there.

I am, however, a bit curious about Sengoku being so relaxed now that he's retired. The relationship between some of the Admirals and the WG seems odd, it's not exactly clear why they are serving after all, from Kuzan to Sengoku to Fujitora especially now.

I like the foreshadowing though. Can't wait for the Kaidou and Big Mam arcs.

Fujitora was drafted, yet strong enough to be instantly promoted to Admiral.

Rank is determined by combat strength. The Marines are run by lesser-ranking members like Brannew and Tsuru.

I'm aware of that - not my point though. Point is that marines such as Sengoku, Fujitora and Kuzan clearly show moral ambiguity when it comes to the Navy's stance on many things, and are obviously not clear-cut villains.

Also, since when are marines drafted? Never heard of that.

Between the start of the timeskip and chapter 713, Issho was drafted.

so government is paying him for doing nothing.

and he got a title.

That sounds like retirement + dental plan.

I'm not aware of anyone else being drafted against their will though, this was never a staple of the Marines. I'm not sure this has been accurately translated in Issho's case.

Either way, the motivation for some of these characters to follow WG orders despite disagreeing is curious, thusfar.

Neat little video, one issue though is that they don't make a lot of merch that is available or appeals to western audiences aside from Videogames.

doflamingo is still alive in prison.




Declaration of Opening (opening of a show, event, etc)

Cover is Cavendish and his horse giving water to his roses

A "mysterious man in mask with curly hair and a pigeon on his shoulder" (gee, who could it be cough Rob cough) who belongs to CP0 is receiving report that all the weapons, paperwork, any trace of smuggling were gone from Dressrosa. They suspect the Revolutionaries have taken them.

Dressrosa are celebrating, with Violetta dancing flamenco in front of the citizens, as King Riku makes a proposal to his people.

He introduces Tontatta elder and Princess Mansherry as the crowd cheers on. Meanwhile Leo hands over blueprints of something to the crafters of Dressrosa. They start working on making statues for Lucy, Usopp, and Kyros before they even rebuild their homes. This is apparently higher priority.

We see Rebecca shopping in the streets along with princess Mansherry on her shoulder, as the narrator says anyone visiting this country will see little dwarves co-existing with humans in peace. (it's a parallel to the opening of Dressrosa, where it was taking about humans and toys co-existing)

Dressrosa, country of love, passion, and fairies.

Meanwhile on marine ship, Fujitora tells Sengoku that once he's done escorting them he'll sail out for a trip. He's not allowed to set foot in any marine base until he brings the head of Law and Straw Hat. Sengoku tells him all he needs to do to save Sakazuki's face is one word of apology, but Fujitora declines. He has a face to save for himself. Sengoku sighs in stubbornness of the two.

Meanwhile Tsuru has a chat with Doflamingo, who is locked up in the cell. Dofla tells her Fujitora was an idiot, if only he had worked with him, he wouldn't be in his sticky position. He tells her they will regret taking him down.

Tsuru tells him there's no "what ifs" in this world. This result is the only reality. Stop being so pathetic, you LOST.

He laughs, and she asks him what will happen to the pirate world now. Dofla tells her what do you think monsters who lost their food will do? Is there anyone in this sea right now who stands at the top? Who will be the king of the sea? One of the Four Emperors? Or one of the seven warlords? Or perhaps the brats of the "Worst Generation"? (awesome picture of the super novas, shichibukai, and yonkou btw!)

Or perhaps the Army of justice.. the marines are the rulers of the sea? Then again we also have powerful folks in the Revolutionaries...

Where and when will the clan of "D" show up? Who will be on who's side? Who will betray who? Why don't you go tell the Celestial dragons in Marie Jois, that they'll be dragged down from their place? 25 years after Gold Roger completed the Grand Line. His rival Whitebeard never took the throne, and settled for seat before it.

But how about now? There are more pirates than ever, yet the throne is empty! You understand what I'm saying... the biggest conflict for the throne in history of pirates will begin now!

(yeah, certain theme song just started playing in my head. dada-dadadada-dadadada- thanks a lot Doflittlefinger.)

Doflamingo laughs, and asks Tsuru to provide him newspapers every day if you're taking me to Impel Down. As long as I have that, I won't be bored.

Meanwhile, someone stares at the 4 marine ships carrying Doflamingo. Only 4 ships, but the men on the ship are way too powerful for mere escort. (Fujitora, Tsuru, Sengoku, etc) The man reports to captain Jack that taking back Lord Doflamingo isn't possible. But Jack isn't satisfied. He tells him who the hell do you think I am? Of course we're attacking!!

Meanwhile Luffy on Barto's ship flagship "Going Luffy Sempai" with Luffy as the figurehead and modeled after Going Merry. Their compass uses Luffy's vivre card to point towards the real Luffy lol

All the members of Barto Club seems to be huge fan of the Straw Hats, and cries in joy of their arrival.

short flashback: Sabo had made Luffy's Vivre card. Bellamy tells Luffy that he won't become his underling, but he'll take a piece of it just in case. The seven captains who pledged oath to Luffy have all taken a piece of Luffy's vivre card before leaving as well, promising to see their lord again.

Luffy says it was fun, and he has come to like them all. Law tells Barto to send the ship to Zou Usopp wonders if Sanji got to the island, and Franky is worried about Big Mam's ship. Zoro is reading the newspaper, and notices their bounties have gone up.

Barto says he has all the new wanted posters in his room, and he'll show it to the straw hats. He also tells Law that his bounty has increased to 500 million, but Law seems uninterested.

In Barto's room, the new wanted posters were framed on the wall. Luffy 500m Zoro 320m Usopp 200m Robin 130m Franky 94m

Franky complains about Usopp being higher, leaving only him under 100m. Usopp tells him to look more carefully, Nami and others are there too

Sanji 177m Nami 66m Brook 83m Chopper 100 berry

Barto explains that other than few who were notably dangerous, most of them got a flat 50m increase. But he notes that Sanji's wanted poster is strangely different from others... Not only does the increase amount different pattern from others, it doesn't say "Dead or Alive".. instead it says "Only Alive"!

End of chapter

The Sanji part is interesting...trying to wrack my brain to figure that out...must be someone from the past, or something he saw.

Very little is known about his past before becoming part of the Baratie crew.

Well there's the possibility it'll be a flashback from before Baratie, yes, or someone we met along the way since....

Odd, didn't Spandam and his Dad end up plotting the destruction of the 'rogue' CP9 team?

If Lucci is in Cipher Zero then how did all that pan out?


Also, for some reason "Captain Jack" makes me think of Axe-Hand Morgan with that brief shot we got of his jaw.
