This week was pretty busy for us we didn’t get to watch much One Piece at all. We only managed to get in 9 episodes but those episodes were the beginning of the next Arc of One Piece,”Dressrosa” before the arc started though we did get some interesting news. Buggy the Clown has become one of the Seven Warlords. It’s not really relevant to the plot right now but it was so unbelievable when I saw that I felt I just had to mention it.
Now, on to the things that are actually important to the plot. The Straw Hats along with Trafalgar Law are using their newly formed alliance to try and take down one of the four emperors. The next step in their plan is to hand Caesar back over to Doflamingo. Meanwhile, another group will go destroy the factory where they are making these man-made Zoan type devil fruits. A third team will stay behind and guard the ship.
Of course, Luffy’s team gets separated fairly quickly. Some “fairy” steals one of Zoro’s swords so he has to go after it. Sanji and Kin’Emon (the samurai) go after him but Sanji gets distracted by a beautiful dancer named Violet and the samurai just gets lost.
Meanwhile, Luffy and Franky find out that there is a tournament being held at the Corrida Colosseum and the prize is the Flare-Flare fruit. That’s the Devil fruit that gave Luffy’s brother Ace his powers. Apparently, when a devil fruit eater dies the power of that devil fruit is then reproduced somewhere else in the world. Doflamingo got his hands on the new flare-flare fruit and put it as a prize for the tournament drawing in all types of strong fighters. Luffy doesn’t want some stranger to possess Ace’s power so of course, he enters the tournament.
The tournament consists of four battle royals the winner of each battle royal will move to the main tournament. There are plenty of interesting looking new characters in this tournament. I can’t wait to see the fights. I am pretty sure Luffy is going to when the whole thing. He entered under the name Lucy but he’s still going to have some trouble keeping his true identity a secret.
