With more Haki users, Logias stop being so invincible, and a Logia hierarchy would fit in just nicely. Kizaru > Enel, Akainu > Ace, Aokiji > Monet, it's all fitting together.
I'm most interested in the artifical Devil Fruit Vegapunk made. I like that they have dot patterns instead of spirals, and this arc is sneaking in lots of DF information, especially when the Axolotl no mi was created from a normal apple when Slimey died to make Shinokuni. We know how they're created (I wonder which fruit in Marineford became the new Mera Mera when Ace died), and we know Vegapunk can make his own, as well as feed them to objects.
I really want to see more DF swords. The one that Spandam had was the coolest.
Late reading this weeks chapter, I was stuck in a hospital all week.
Anyways, first thing I would like to address, or simply ask; Why did you guys ever think Monet was smart? She knows as much as you do, possibly a lot less, meaning she would only be as smart as you. Informative and intelligent are not the same thing. I would then like to point out Whiskey Peak to those who say Zoro doesn't like fighting women, when he clearly injures many women. That being said, Zoro has always been a defender of the weak, hints why he is always the first one to dive in when ANY crew member or stranger is in trouble. I bold 'any' because people are delusional enough to think it is always one single person Zoro plays guarding angel for. Now I would kinda like to know why he does that, seeing that his past doesn't go into detail.
Finally, for the Logia thing; I have a theory that all logias revolve around the 4 states of mater(Solid, Liquid, Gas, Plasma) or combination of the four.
As for the chapter: Why is Oda not letting us see Zoro get serious!? We've seen both Luffy and Sanji get serious.
The only real reason Zoro isn't going all out is because there's the nigh lethal poisonous gas outside. If Zoro let loose something lethal like the time-skip equivalent of a 36-Pound Cannon where he is now, wouldn't that risk breaking the walls that keep the shinokuni gas outside and end up pouring in and kill everyone?
Not a very pleasant situation for Zoro to be in. Either let loose all hell on Monet and risk letting the gas seep in through any destroyed walls from the carnage, or let Monet succeed at killing you.
it might not be clear here, but in the anime he pulled his sword and charged towards her.
Character wise, Zoro doesn't mind fighting and beating a woman up but manga rules won't allow that.
Assuming that Vergo is way above Monet.
Like I said zorro is gonna leave tashigi to fight monet, who knows he may stand on the sideline giving
Tashigi some advice. I think zorro's opponent Is yet to arrive!!!
I think Zorro have intuition that there is some goodness inside Monet and still believe that she can change. that's why he is holding back there.
the way she doesn't harm d children. I mean, mocha did run to her but yet she doesn't do anything. just let her pass by.
Maybe there is something happened in her past that hasn't revealed yet.
Zorro is way far stronger in many ways than her, that's absolute.
sorry for my english
