chapter 827

chapter 833: vinsmoke judge
what are those: yonji pressed back in to shape .. raid suits ?
revealed: sanji is a quadruplet, who was trained in swordfighting
opt: and now sanji’s got some exploding handcuffs on him. hypothetically, could vergo tank the blow up cuffs ? and i think the evidence all points to his brothers having metal components installed in their heads — even from an early age ! these guys take technology pretty seriously .. something something vegapunk something something

quickly, there’s no time !
oda came out on record a couple times and said the story was between 65% – 70% complete recently (tv interview – leroux10 via sandman/dai one piece shimbum @ animenewsnetwork); back in 2012 he said the manga was 60% done .. so let’s see —

we’re currently at chapter 833 so by chapter, @ 65% = 1,282 chapters total, @ 70% = 1,190 chapters, avg = 1,236 chapters; by time, one piece celebrated it’s 19th birthday recently so @ 65% = 29 + 3 months, @ 70% = 27 years + 2 months, avg = 28 years + 3 months … and finally, if by plot, who knows

otherwise, this release dates table by falkenauge is awesome .. i hope he keeps updating it !
so much has happened to me recently, and now i think i get to disclose 100% instead of always being so cryptic
quickly: i turned 29, partied way too hard and am going to stop for a while, resigned once again and am going in for round two of the artists’ life
how i know it’ll work this time: i don’t. but this is way more fun and inline with my nature/what i feel is right 

hope you all had a great couple of weeks and weekends 🙂
can’t wait for one piece next week !

chapter 832: germa kingdom
revealed: randolph is not a mink, who by definition can emit electro
introducing: charlotte brulee, big mom’s 8th daughter !
revealed: the germa kingdom is a mobile, docking fleet of ships !
introducing: vinsmoke judge — sanji’s father and commander of the germa 66 !!
opt: this is weirdly out of order .. basically, everything was said up above. thanks 🙂

hey guys, if you haven’t already noticed by now i’m currently migrating the entire website over to a new host, so the second i’m done with that i’ll be able to update. thanks 🙂

goddamn .. i just updated and none of it saved. i’ll update this later on — i gotta go on my short vacay to vegas 🙂

will take care of this on monday. hope you all have a wonderful week and weekend !

chapter 831: adventure in a mysterious forest
revealed: nothing ?? welcome to the seducing woods !!
opt: what the hell is going on !! i guess we learned that the mirror-clones’ distinguishing features are on the wrong side of their bodies .. but this sanji we’re seeing isn’t a mirror clone then right ? else his right eyebrow wouldn’t curl nearest his nose ?

the crocodile and the rabbit, we’ve seen before (pyarox) in 829.8 and 827.17 + if this is a wonderland thing, sanji is doing a great cheshire cat (mrmooncraft) .. and even though i think i’ve seen this mirror trope before, i can’t remember how it was beaten. my thought is, if luffy can just stand there (i know, dumb plan already) and let get his mirror-ass get kicked by carrot, will they be able to simply move past him ? another cool little puzzle oda has thrown in to this arc 🙂 more !! more !!

the one piece community is the shit
these anime/manga comparisons by irishsaltytuna are so cool; he also does them for naruto (you can see them all here) but thank you so much for making these the world is a better place

– comparison of king kong gun between the anime and manga
– comparison of gear fourth between anime and manga

courtesy of sarmadqt, a compilation of all the double spreads + in color !! there are over 500 so i bet it’ll take at least 5-10 mins which i haven’t done yet but i will

whole cake carbs
so one of my friends has gone on a ketogenic diet and thinks it’s making him immortal (my words not his) .. i did some research on it and it appears to be legit enough to warrant a shot so i started on it yesterday + why, yes ~ i _do_ already hate myself !

the benefits are similar to that of fasting, which make sense because restricting rice/potatoes/noodles/fruit/sugar is pretty damn close to it — i’m doing a modified version though where i can eat cake because this is the whole cake arc so, y’know, it doesn’t count

one piece is on break and i’m updating the thursday after the initial release; damn, that’s late
hope all is well 🙂 if you’re reading this i thank you for your patience/not giving a shit — you’re the best
have a great week and weekend !

chapter 830: he who gets bet on
revealed: aladine married the 29th daughter of big mom — charlotte praline !
revealed: those that try to leave big mom’s crew must spin the roulette wheel !!
revealed: pedro tried and failed to steal big mom’s poneglyph once before
whodatis: someone’s there .. in the distance .. ?
opt: arrival !!

so praline really is devoted to aladine, which makes me think pudding is not actually evil (though i have been fooled before) .. and muscat really is dead — or is he ? mont ‘dor’s line ~ ‘do not leave behind a single second’ .. does/did he have a few seconds left ? and what are those blobby things he was talking to?

oda is adding all these cool, mysterious but well-thought-out things to whole cake — like the roulette wheel and the secret passage — there has to be more ! more little puzzles for us to figure out (or not figure out, just freakin tell us oda) 😀

// someone here is a double agent/mole for kaido (dellinger @ mf)
–> the beast pirates knew raizou was on zou; someone gave them a vivre card
–> pedro: only one conscious after jack’s attack/is really after these poneglyphs
–> carrot: game change !!
opt: hmm .. maybe there’s not all that much evidence for this but i love the idea and want it on here cause i don’t think i’ve seen this before anywhere else

my sincere apologies on all the late updates; just too tired + i gotta find some time to get this done
still recovering from a mini vacation and i can’t sleep so here i am

hope all is well everyone 🙂
thanks for reading and have a good one !!

chapter 829: the yonkou, charlotte linlin the pirate
revealed: the secret passage
mystery: pedro’s past
life or treat: big mom destroys everything until she fills her craving
revealed: charlotte muscat, gelato minister + 16th son
unrevealed: big mom stole 40 years of her son’s life !!?
traitor: jinbe gave big mom the poneglyph he found
opt: has it been so long that i haven’t said anything about it yet or did i just forget — the one piece subreddit updates itself again in to something beautiful; such awesome mods since day wheneveristartedgoingthere

i really like how the secret passage works ! but we have to talk about big mom and all of whole cake/totland;

big mom, whole cake, totland
is being absolutely terrorized by big mom. life or treat is an ultimatum — give me what i want or i’m taking years off your life .. !! will muscat have a walking cane when we see him next? but here’s what i don’t understand —

–> big mom is strong/unstoppable in her life or treat state
–> big mom controls whole cake
??? why are big mom’s hunters slaughtering everyone for cake ingredients
opt: i get the sense she’s only here because nowhere else in the new world can anything be easily cooked on demand; and if she’s truly unstoppable why wouldn’t all the totland islands just give up the ingredients as tribute ? maybe this all happened very recently and the locals are still adjusting. or maybe the world gov’t helped set this up because they didn’t want to deal with her shit (bum bum bummmm)

more questions
the living food of totland are scared to be eaten/happy to be tasty which is .. uhh .. something i don’t understand .. and what is that keep calm vs. mama’s df line all about ? whatever it’s about, how many lives does big mom have now ? does it even matter with her ability to rack em’ up like crazy like this ? the answer is most likely (as everyone else thinks) that she is able to give life in exchange for her own this way or somesuch craziness .. i mean, even her hat is alive, so what if she has way too many lives and is throwing them up like moriah 😛 can’t wait for oda’s answer !

finally, big mom can either see the future or has a bunch of spies that told her, because big mom’s accusation that jinbe was going to leave (happens to be true) came out of nowhere. probably the later. but i hope she can see in to the future 😀

one liners
– brooke is the perfect nemesis to big mom: 0 years (kneomon)
– ‘killing off gelato was a ballsy move oda, me and the other gelato fans are done with this trash’ (shyguy531)
– big mom’s outburst ~= kids on punk hazard. ceasar was hired to find a cure (waifuhunter)
opt: c … l … aaaaa …. p. get it. i’ll see myself out

there’s so much more to big mom than we can possibly begin to know;
whitebeard’s backstory was fairly short, but he has had a ton of panel time since the beginning which makes me think big mom’s is deep and fleshed out and i can’t wait for it to be told 🙂

i turned 29 yesterday and my wife got me a really amazing present — a goyard card case, with luffy painted on it, courtesy of servicedby_e !!
more on turning 29 later, i suppose. you know me, i always got somethin to say
hasn’t quite hit me yet. maybe in a couple weeks 🙂

have a great week and weekend everybody! one piece is back!! @ 06/18/16

chapter 828: 1 and 2
revealed: big mom’s children cannot choose their own spouses .. except one left
reve .. ale .. uugghhh: big mom has 43 husbands, 39 daughters and 46 sons
infiltration: there’s a secret passage to whole cake
he’s probably taking a dump or something: turn back?
saviors: the germa66 saved (?) brock colie island
introducing: 1 and 2 !!
opt: why was the message written in the bathroom ? he really was taking a dump !! luffy’s observation haki, getting stronger .. !!

pedro is such a badass; completely no nonsense, and perfect contrast to carrot for this mission. but why hasn’t nitro opened his mouth (?) yet .. how does it even make sense that he owns the cafe chuffy ate ? also: luffy, just killing it again — beaming with pride/super proud of sanji; i’ll never get sick of seeing this side of him. i’m lovin’ it, anyway, every single time

being wrong
and so it would appear i am in the wrong camp; if lola isn’t one of big mom’s daughters, then oda is trolling everyone as hard as possible. also, it doesn’t seem like 1 and 2 are the guys i thought were germa66 .. i mean, they could still be like 5 and 6, but it’s lookin bad over here, folks .. ah, who cares 😀

on hiatus 🙁 what the hell do i do now !?
i get the feeling pudding is going to have to marry someone other than sanji by arc end ..
and will we meet all of pudding’s other family members ?

hope all is well, all
and hope you have a great couple weeks and weekends 🙂

chapter 827: totland
revealed: there are 34 islands around whole cake, referred to in whole as totland
revealed: nitro the jello owns a cafe on cacao island
revealed: each island has a food-themed chancellor
sacrifice? … ‘it’ll be a sweet day ..’ !!
opt: 3 days until the tea party !! and there are 34 islands, and 35 daughters .. so nevermind

sanji’s wife to be is quite the cook herself, eh ? reaffirming it now: i’m on theweddingishappening side ! and who exactly is to be sacrificed ? sanji ? luffy ? .. what if it’s pudding herself ? she’s a good guy right ? or did she come to chuffy’s aid a little too quickly ? screw it — i’d drink that tea ! it’s gotta be good !!

one liners
– is this a snakeneck from the auction list ? we’ve seen everything else ! (elsoja)
– three eyes had a jelly friend too (ohmygillett)
opt: and brooke finally saw nami’s panties — soul kinnggguuu !!! and did big mom eat the life-life/animate-animate/disney-disney/nazi-nazi no mi ? no matter what it is, this arc is setting up to be extremely dark and i just can’t wait for it

i’m firmly still in the alice in wonderland camp, and not so much hansel and gretel/grimm; and i hope i hope oda gets nonsensical with it because that would be amazingx4, and he’d really be flexing his writing skills that way .. and while it’d be a far, far reach, i do think there is hope yet: the rules around totland seem strange and fairly arbitrary — you can eat anything, except the roofs … or well you can, but only if you hang a sign first

// brooke is the mad hatter here and will sing in the presence of big mom (erayachi)
–> hat + tea + musican
–> in alice in wonderland (aow) the mad hatter was sentenced to beheading because he didn’t sing well enough
opt: dude. if this is aow inspired then yes. all of this — 100%. you are doing god’s work here. buy. also, onepiecepaper.com just opened up and this person writes at length about each chapter that comes out so if you need more one piece fix there it is for you 😀 hatter tells this story; queen faults the hatter for murdering the time (person) @ the tea party in ch7

my wife thinks big mom is preparing a grand feast of all the races @ 05/27/16
i don’t like how silent nitro the jelly is + i dunno which island big mom is on. first we see whole cake on 17, but she’s surrounded by mountains and not cake, ala the top-leftmost panel in 18. so is whole cake just where the cake building/tea party is held, and big mom has her own totland hangout island ? @ 05/28/16

say, wasn’t this supposed to be an infiltration/stealth mission to retrieve sanji ? well that already went to shit and it has only been 1 chapter

welcome to whole cake ! where everything sings and it’s eat or be eaten —
thanks for reading, hope you all have a great week and memorial day weekend
i will definitely spend part of this reading alice in wonderland 🙂 and you can too
