One Piece Chapter 543 Discussion and Breakdown + Chapter 544 Spoilers Confirmed + Spoiler Pics and Video!!! Demotivational Poster Included! 0_0
This weeks spoilers are juicy…like an apple (sorry just finished Death Note). I tried to post something not TOO revelaing so I posted this pic. We all knew in are hearts that Shiryuu was ok right? Anyway this is a damn discussion and spoiler blog so you can’t get mad at me even if you didn’t want to see it so there. 😛 For more spoilers check out the video below. Again there’s no translation and it consists of just pics and music but it’s still aweomse nonetheless. I personally reccommend staying away from the spoilers this week for maximum enjoyment but whether or not you do so is up to you.
Thx, goes to Naruto1piece for the spoiler vid!
First off I would like to make the official announcement that I will be posting the first One Piece Arc Breakdown tomorrow, so for all those who want to start reading One Piece start now. Shinobimadness will be writing the Arc Breakdowns. It’ll be good for beginners of the series to catch up together and for veterans of the series to get a quick review of things we might have forgotten.
Here’s this weeks AMV another one from Suno315! It’s pretty awesome. Enjoy! 🙂
Cool, let’s start this Breakdown!
Lol, Sanji’s back and he’s starring in his own chapter cover story “Sanji in Kamabakka Hell – Hang In There!”. Captnmexico said it best, “Looks like we won’t be seeing the crew back together if they are going to do a cover short story for everyone. Poor Sanji………hope they yelled SUPRISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” 😄 I have mixed feelings about this development in plans to cover the rest of the Straw Hat Crew. On one hand I’m disappointed Oda won’t go into more depth of each character’s adventure on their separate islands like he did for Luffy on the Amazon Island. On the other hand I know that if he did that it’d take a hell of a long time. But won’t these weekly cover stories take long as well or will he do a VERY broad summary to cover each character in their cover stories?
In Impel Down Level 1 ‘The Crimson Hell’ Blackbeard is kicking ass and taking names….like literally he does ask for Shiryuu’s name. 😉 But that’s as far as we get because it cuts away after that…WTF! I’ll get back to that later. Meanwhile down on Level 4 Luffy and the rest of Team Awesome are trucking there way to the door to Level 3. The Gaol Guards have no hope of stopping them after the Demon Guards were one hit K.O.ed last chapter but props to them for trying. Then steps in Sadi-Chan. Mmmmm………..Sadi-Chan…….what?…….oh, sorry lost my train of thought there…now what were we talking about again? Oh yeah, Sadi-Chan……I’m taking a cold shower after this Breakdown. 🙂 Anyway Sadi-Chan steps in and whips the okama back and boy does she know how to use that whip. If I’m not mistaken it destroys part of the bridge. Holy Hell now that’s attack power! What’s the whip made out of steel?
But look who steps in to battle her. It’s….a woman….it’s Ivankov! Damn, now I’m more confused than ever. Ivankov changes gender almost as much as Ranma and that’s a lot! 😄 After batting Luffy over Sadi-Chan’s head Ivankov turns into a woman and decides to fight her. Now this may prove to be an interesting battle. If Ivankov deemed her worthy an opponent to take on personally instead of sending Inazuma to handle her Sadi-Chan must be something…or she’s in for an ass kicking. We can only assume that Sadi-Chan is more powerful than the Demon Guards since she commanded them and now we know she has the strength to shatter brick with the crack of a whip! She’s not to be reckoned with but she’s up against an opponent who can bat away cannon balls with the wink of an eyelash and change your gender! Don’t you dare do it Ivankov!
Who’s to stop Luffy now? Why it’s Hannyabal to the rescue! Wielding his Naginata named “Kessui” he gives a pretty speech about defending peace and justice then makes a circus act trying to take down Luffy with the guards cheering at his side. His Naginata when twirled around emits flames from its bladed tips cutting and burning at the same time. Yeah, you don’t f**k with that no matter if he sings while doing it you better be careful. Luffy gets a few burns but that’s not going to stop him of course and he beats Hannyabal down repeatedly. Luffy is here to save Ace and that’s that! Why does Hannyabal keep getting up though when he has no chance of winning and he is near death? Calling pirates scum and the reason innocent people fear for their life. I have to admit I was impressed with Hannyabal this chapter at his will and determination. He makes a good point and generally he’s right about pirates. He has the best intentions and is in all rights a “good guy” but he just doesn’t know the Straw Hat Pirates and definitely doesn’t know Straw Hat Luffy!
Over on the other side of Level 4 Magellan has arrived outside the lift and is prepared to engage the escapees. Guess what happens next….the Goal Bazooka Unit is disappearing into….darkness? Noooooo, WTH is this? Blackbeard and his entire crew intact! I thought they were fighting Shiryuu and not one of them is hurt! So let’s talk about this for now. What happened? Was I right last week when I said in the comment section that Blackbeard and Shiryuu might be working together or was Shiryuu defeated and the battle skipped over to save some time?
Blackbeard smashes Hannyabal into the ground effectively finishing him off while saying there is no answer to “justice” or “evil” to be found. If he believes there’s no effective answer to “justice” or “evil” then what side is he fighting for? Is he a free spirit like Luffy just wanting to sail the ocean looking for adventure and ultimately One Piece? Seems he needs something to believe in…maybe even Luffy. Matter of fact there’s one thing they do both believe in…Dreams! How’s that for wishful thinking? 😉 Anyway, Jimbei and Blackbeard talk it out and Blackbeard’s name is revealed to Luffy. Luffy puts it all together and figures out that this is the man who put Ace in prison and the man who basically started it all. The chapter ends with a face off between Luffy and Blackbeard staring at each other! Oh my….the tension is so thick in there you can cut it with a flaming Naginata….oh wait, Hannyabal’s down…damn. Hmmmm….. *steals Hannyabal’s Naginata* 0_0
Lol, jkjk! 😄 I really enjoyed the chapter even though I’m peeved that I don’t know what happened to Shiryuu. More battles are to come next week. Sadi-Chan vs. Ivankov? Magellan vs. Luffy? Blackbeard Crew vs. Team Awesome? *jumps around excitedly*. Still I hope the story slows down a little after they get out of Impel Down and HOPEFULLY we can get an in-depth look at the happenings of the rest of the Straw Hat Pirates. Well that’s it for this week. Comment, predict, and discuss. Here’s this week’s demotivational poster. See you’ll soon! 😀
