Excellent chapter! Not only was there a mini timeskip, but we were also able to see Dadan. I do wonder what the Dadan gang did to become such mischievous outlaws whose crimes are larger in number than the stars. I don't really understand why Garp would let outlaws raise Luffy and Ace though. If he wanted them to be strong marines, he should've just trained them himself (although time may not have permitted that). Anyway overall it was an excellent chapter, and I miss Ivankov and the candys.
Luffys reaction was perfect, I loved it. Wonder if they will continue with the flash back next chapter. I jizzed a little when I saw Dadan.
Didn't expect Luffy to get back on his feet so soon let alone rampage around the Island, honestly I was hoping to see more of Luffy we had enough flash backs during the war, looks like next week's chapter will be about the past with Ace & Luffy.
great chapter...hope we get a lil more of the past before we move on to reuniting the strawhats
So that's Dadan...not at all what I expected.
I'm guessing Ace saved Luffy's life early on, and that's what we'll see in this flashback. I can't think of anything else that would've formed such a strong bond between them, given they apparently didn't even like each other at first.
Given the extent of Luffy's grief, I'm quite curious as to how his personality will change moving forward. Perhaps the entire tone of this manga will change.
