For all intents and purposes, Luffy's attacks were pretty much nothing lol

What Queen could tank is not really relevant.
Except I was originally discussing Queen being more cautious in a ring with Luffy by not taking his sea stone cuffs off. My point in referencing what Luffy can do/the power display he showed to Kaido and his army (and left a guy who just cut Jack with his sword in amazement) isn't because of how much damage it did/didn't do to Kaido, but how much damage it would have done to someone who isn't Kaido (in this instance, Queen). While I'm going to assume Kaido probably didn't tell Queen any of that, it's still a obvious mistake on Queen's part/the "Luffy can't do anything" responses don't make sense in this context.

Luffy can't go all out regardless due to only being able to move around the ring. Worst case scenario, they still have Hyou as a major handicap/leverage as well.

Queen wasn't there for the Kaido beatdown, and I don't see Kaido going out of his way to talk about how Luffy's hits felt either. Even if he did, a Calamity's not the type of top-tier I'd expect to be shaken by that. I think the measures he's taken before setting up this sumo ring are more than adequate.

Fighting the Beast Pirates in a Sumo tournament is the most natural way for Luffy to "train." Queen doesn't even know what he's doing.

I can't fucking believe Oda brought back Happiness Punch. lmao
Good lord, Sanji. You were defeated and exposed at the worst possible time. Drake is no better either. lolol
I completely forgot Hawkins and Drake were from the North Blue, too.

I'm happy JB has those fact notes at the end of the chapters, because I knew that the weapon collector looked so familiar. Lo and behold, he's a deep cut reference to Benkei.

Episode of Nami was cut really well come to think of it.

Episode of Skypiea/Sabo bored me, sad to say.

Also anyone want to get in on the give Man God an Avatar for the rest of march thread? Properly formatted is appreciated but as long as it won't get me banned I'll take the best one that comes in tonight.
