To me, Tashigi's strength is about right. I mean as she is now, she could give any of the pre-timeskip pirates a run for their money. Even Alabasta Smoker would lose. However, since Oda has shown that Law has improved to the point of being able to defeat VA Smoker, to have Tashigi able to hold up against him wouldn't make sense. The tears also made perfect sense though. The amount of trust those of the G5 had put into Vergo was all a lie, and then getting killed off by Vergo without knowing the reason, no crap Tashigi would cry. Especially since we've seen that the G5 men, although crude, really stand for each other, like how they saved her from the gas while sacrificing themselves.

Well when Sanji, Zolo, and Luffy knocked Caribou away together, they were all probably normal just hitting him/ or with a bit of haki. Judging by Caribou's surprise to being hit, he's just so weak/ new to haki, add a little and you can send him flying. So no wonder already knowing Caribou was a logia he did the same. It just goes to tell for Vergo at least that he was strong enough for Sanji to go at him with no mercy on the 1st strike, unless it was just a testament to just how angry he was at him for harming a woman. 1 or the other
Either way think you're underestimating Sanji a bit, and overestimating Vergo.
As for Sanji kicking hard, yeah, that was part of his anger. And hopefully the anger gives him a power up to hold off. I don't believe I'm under or overestimating anyone. Fact is that Law is about equal to Luffy and Zoro. Sanji typically has been slightly below them. We saw Law take out Smoker, and Vergo is above that of Smoker (even if Smoker reckons he can take him). At best, they would be on par, but Sanji is currently injured. The only hope is that Sanji's ero-power does boost him up by that much.
I think that Coby thing is more from experience that he gained from fighting the CP9.
Actually if you see Luffy's insight/ vision during the war that Mihawk's next slice would cut off his arms, as a emerging beginning form of CoO. Then you could also see that insight Luffy had when 1st facing Croc that his attack although greatly just sand could seriously slice Luffy as also his 1st very minor usage of CoO. Making him the 1st of the 3. And also judging by Coby during the war; maybe in general CoO is what most beings experienced 1st in their own bodies to open them up for the other 2. Even if somehow the trio is more proficient at the others CoC, or CoO, think they will all strengthen CoA to the max they can towards the end of the series, because the other 2 probably won't be as important in their final fights, + what BB said to Luffy in ID about his haki increase in strength showing from his attack, basically makes me think CoA gets stronger partly just from the aware CoA user getting stronger, and possibly they not even need be aware of their haki. But agree, possibly too soon to tell if Sanji is more proficient than Zolo at CoO proficiency. But with Brook's power development aiding his ero habits, wouldn't be surprised if Sanji's CoO took the same direction.
I do agree that all three of them will have to work on their CoA, although I do believe Luffy's CoA is about as good as it can get. If anything, for Luffy, it's more about his actual strength now.
I agree about the itching to fight part. Which is why he went G2+ instead of just running or using G2. As far as I'm concerned, Luffy has 2 levels of G2. We all know how G2 works right, and why there was steam coming out of his body. Well G2+ basically means his pushing his body even further, think SSJ2, which would allow his body to move even faster and have much more power. The side effect would be even greater heat generation, thus the burning. We can assume that it's the G2+ that allowed him to use the firefist/red hawk on Hodi.
Interesting idea, but think flames from running could possibly be more symbolic of Luffy itching to fight after being contained for so long.
I do believe all of the SH's will get a new bounty after this. The WG know that the SH's have improved. The question is how much. The thing is that if the WG reconises that Sanji can take on a VA, then his captain and the first mate must too be stronger. I mean if you put it another way, Vergo is way stronger than Ceaser. If Sanji for some reason beats Vergo, then wouldn't his bounty have to jump up way above that of Zoro's and even Luffy's? Especially since Ceaser is ranked below Luffy anyway (300 vs 400 mill bounty), so Luffy won't really get anything out of beating Ceaser.
Was thinking we never seen characters get jumps in bounty beyond their positions, but even coming close to a VA in a fight could instantly push him beyond Zolo's bounty, or even potential bounty raises, especially if Sanji's the only 1 to fight a Navy member.
I'm sure Law has a way to get his heart back. However, I doubt it's going to be as easy as you say. Especially since Ceaser and Vergo could easily just seal it away in a seastone safe. And the heart that Vergo had was definetly his, or else he wouldn't have reacted before he even realised who Vergo was.
Has any1 thought it possible, this whole time, that Law just played along to the enemies having his heart, sort of similar to the ways Caribou let himself be captured at 1st? Acting in pain for a liar like Law would be quite easy, or even just switching which heart they have in secret, when it suits him. Doubt after all this time Law hasn't or didn't possess ways of using his powers by hidden means.
P. S.- Love how finally some1 called Smoker on his laziness getting to fly everywhere, while others have to run.
Never thought I'd feel sorry for Brownbeard. Damn SH's don't play once they've decided something, also using him as a coatrack. Creepy how seamlessly they did it all.
