Oda has truly broken us if a guy can get shot in the head and still have people doubt that he's dead haha
Lol I guess. Pell left me scarred, man.

To be fair though, I don't think I ever doubted Pedro and Pound's deaths! Maybe some skepticism on Pound's as he was never acknowledged as Chiffon's father and that was really dark, going out in such a cruel manner (I have little doubt Lola and Chiffon will someday find out, though. Pez is the key!)

The music is god tier. It’s a really slow start but dammit man you’ll enjoy it. Tanjiro rose up the ranks of number three for my fav shonen protagonist and this manga is now sitting pretty at number two
I actually just watched the most recent ep last night love the clown mask delivery guy

We should threadmark this:



Lotus always with the good ideas

To those who may have not noticed, our usual source seems to be missing the 2nd to last page. The other source has it though.

EDIT: Okay, it's there now.

- As expected, Yasu's appearance is completely different from how he looks now, no wonder no one could recognize him. He looks kinda badass.

- This chapter comes close to confirming what happened to Oden's father. Seems likely he just simply passed away, which is what set everything in motion by giving Oden an opportunity to become the new Shogun. We'll see though. Maybe there's even foul play involved.

- Guess he's not Orochi's brother after all... or the Witching Hour Boy!!!! Seriously, what a twist, though that explains why his figure didn't match the silhouette from 926. Who the hell is it then, because it doesn't feel like it's either Toko or Hiyori.

- Lmao at Yasu actually going through with the idea of it being a prank.

- So there were 5 daiymo total: Oden (Kuri), Yasu (Hakumai), and 3 others (Udon, Kibi, Ringo). So Orochi seems to not be a former daiymo... I think. Given how Yasu refers to himself as the "last daiymo", it seems that all the others died during the fight against Kaido.

- Of course a sleazeball like Orochi was indebted to Oden, but betrayed him anyways.

- I definitely feel that the "curse" on Orochi's heart is gonna be referenced again in a flashback by someone.

- Yasu really fucking played Orochi hard. Willingly let himself get caught in order to protect the alliance from being caught. That explains why it felt so odd to see him suddenly tied up like that.

- The one-two punch of Yasu dying right in front of Toko, as well as learning that the SMILE fruits are somehow responsible for Ebisu Town's "condition"... Woof.

Great chapter. Yasu wasn't around that long, but Oda really made me feel for the guy in a short time in classic OP fashion. Also jeez, Oda has gotten more "bloodthirsty" in the New World, but this is the first time a character has died this early on in an arc. Really makes you wonder who might be next...

Made me think of that little bit from Mob:

Oh god you're right

I feel so bad for O-Toko :(

But Yasu died like a G and he's taking credit for the tattoo, does that mean they're going to release most of the prisoners now ?

Seems like it. They already established that everyone's secretly very tired of Orochi's paranoia, this stunt from Yasu will only fuel that. If anyone objects to it, it'll maybe be one of the Supernova.

That's because he ate the Dragon fruit, while Kaidou is a dragon that ate the Oni fruit.
What does Momo have to do with Kaido lol, Vegapunk's DF isn't even a real Devil Fruit, so there's nothing stopping them from both having Dragon DFs

The Oni theory has never really made sense either

I'm saying Kaidou didn't eat the Dragon fruit, but is a dragon. Momo ate the real Dragon fruit.

Just a fun harmless little theory lol, I'm not stating or denying any connection between the two.
 
Very good chapter. I had thought Yasu's story was told a bit too quickly, but it was wrapped up really well here.
But that SMILE reveal. What I previously thought was a brand name invented by Ceaser and Doffy turned a lot more sinister in a single page.
