Thousand sunny~ under the orders of the captain, I am here posting and kind of bringing some activity to this club. x:
One Piece 689
One of those epic Luffy moments. Seriously, I've recently picked up the anime and mann, the anime has some good soundtracks. When Luffy punched Clown, the song "The very very very strongest" popped into my head LOL. Well anyways, I can't wait for the confrontation of Doflamingo. Honestly one of the most interesting characters in the series. Man made devil fruits. intriguing.
Wow Caesar really can take a punch. o.0
If he wasn't a Logia DF user, he probably wouldn't still be alive.
His Gastille attack was actually cool.
I wonder what color it will be in the anime.
Ahahaha, Kinemon finally realized that the dragon he cut down could have been his son.
But luckily we know that it wasn't. ;p
I wonder who Usopp was planning to use the sea-prism stone 'cuffs on, hmm...
And the second half of the chapter is just epic battles! 8D
Vergo was very intimidating when he went full-body Haki.
It reminded me of how intimidating Akainu can be.
But then Law steps up a notch on the bad-*** scale by bifurcating Vergo, and the whole mountain! :O
Law sort of confirmed what I've heard before, that there'll be a huge war near the end of One Piece that will dwarf the Whitebeard War.

But I doubt V's been done with. He'll probably still fight a bit (like Kinemon) even after being cut by Law. :p
Edit: Coby's a captain right now, if I recall correctly. His rank has been confirmed by film Z. :o
Oh, and this is Crusher's Creed; feel free to change my name to Derozio in the first post.
Yeah, Vergo will probably just launch himself around with his arms.
Unless Law didn't use his DF powers to cut Vergo....
Only two episodes and I'm already loving this arc! :D
It seems good enough to be canon.
Maybe Oda's had a hand in writing up the plot for it.
Lily is a neat character.
A giant that ate the Mini Mini Fruit...
Apparently this concept was done before in a OP video game, but I doubt anyone will care much. xD And like most OP females, she's quite pretty.
I also like Shuza as a character.
It's cool that he's a really strong Long-Arm tribesman.
His pet Alpacacino is odd and funny; has a better laugh than Shuza.
I haven't read anything about the One Piece: Film Z, so 576 was an interesting episode.
I can't wait for more of this arc, and One Piece: Film Z!

I really liked this chapter. Luffy's attack was devastating. Caesar, even in his super-shinokuni-powered mode, couldn't do a damn thing other than try to tempt Luffy into joining him but was, ultimately, blasted away by Grizzly Magnum. And law. I love how serious Law is when he's talking to Luffy. And Luffy's in troll mode. XD;
Baby 5. Goddammit she's hot. And those HUGE guns. I think I'm in love. ;A; Buffalo is alright, I guess. Seems like everybody saw Luffy defeat Caesar. Luffy's gonna be well known even in New World pretty soon, I guess. And wonder what Killer was thinking in that panel? He probably thought about how they should try allying them with Strawhats after seeing what Luffy was capable of. ALSO, I could see a lucci look-alike in the shadows.
All in all, great chapter. Loved Baby 5 and Buffalo's entry. Pumped to see their interaction with Franky. :]
Hmm, looks like Caribou's cover story is over...maybe.
It could have just been put on hold to promote the new movie.
Yay, a new color spread!
Oda always makes neat color spreads.
I thought Luffy's attack was just going to be called "Double Elephant Gun".
But after looking closer I see that it is a bit different.
Grizzly Magnum seems to be a variation of Gum-Gum Bazooka.
I love how all the shadow spectators saw Luffy blast Caesar through the wall. XD
Pekoms and Tamago were watching, and so was Killer.
One of the shadow spectators in this chapter looked kind of like Rob Lucci.
I wonder what the Lucci look-a-like and horned man in the bottom right meant by their comments.
I forget, have there been any other shadow spectators that we know of, or might look familiar?
Kinemon...that fool. :/
I'm sure Chopper will find some way of restoring him.
Law's right, he shouldn't have given Luffy all that responsibility alone. XD
I never thought Oda would make a Devil Fruit like Baby 5's Buki Buki no Mi.
It just doesn't seem to fit in as well with the One Piece themes.
I thought most weapons were supposed to be based in the Georgian Era (1700's & early 1800's).
But that was thrown awry when Oda introduced cyborgs and laser beams.
It'll be interesting to see what kind of weapons Oda creates for Baby 5. Although, it does seem like he's trying to blend modern weaponry with the flintlock theme on some of Baby 5's weapons...
Buffalo, is just weird...what is he even spinning? o.0
And it ends with a tease to a fight between Franky and Baby 5 & Buffalo. :D
First, talking about 693 - Monet. ;; Goddamn, Monet is so freakin' loyal to Dofla. The sentence that she uttered in a past chapter "Dofla will kill me if I fail" almost made it seem like Money is actually working for Dofla just because he's gonna kill her if she doesn't do as he says. But, as it turns out, she's actually completely loyal to him. Even goes as far as being ready to kill herself for her 'young master'! <3; Now that's some strawhat level loyalty right there. Anyway, yeah, I thought Monet would go down before pressing the switch. Caesar has a heart that he considers to be smoker's. But I thought it could be monet's. Law could've changed them anytime, you know. :p And Franky's really holding off B5&Buffalo! He's suuuuper strong, as I thought! :DD I mean, holding off two of Dofla's personal crew members? That's gotta be a hard task. But Suuuper General Franky does it no problem! :DDDD
Chapter 694 - "A Very Dangerous Man!":
No, goddammit. I thought Monet would be stopped. NOT KILLED! I don't want her to die. Her character actually has QUITE a lot of potential. I mean, she's really mysterious and a colorful character in general. ;; But yeah, turns out Caesar actually had Monet's heart and he stabs it stopping Monet in the process. Monet didn't blow the island up which worried Dofla. NOW THE BIG BADASS IS GONNA TAKE CARE OF MATTERS HIMSELF OMG! <333 Just look at that guy approach PH. Holy crap. He looks badass. And he's probably gonna mess some people up now. The wait for the next chapter JUST got more difficult. ;;
I'm sure there's a Trope for a big bad (Doflamingo) coming to the battle field (Punk Hazard) in person, but I can't think of it at the moment.
What the heck is he even riding on?! o.0
I'm on the virtual edge of my seat, wondering what'll happen next.

Well we don't know what Baby 5 and Buffalo's bountries are, but I'd imagine that they're not small fries.
I'm lovin' this battle. It's great to get to see Franky getting serious in a battle again.
I know Oda is a fan of western music and I'm pretty sure I've read he is indeed a fan of Eminem. Could very well be.
If it is a coincidence there are an awful lot of coincidences in the series.
Contains some spoilers, probably
Marshall D Teach - Blackbeard, a real notorius bad pirate
Donquixote Doflamingo - His name
Jango - Michael Jackson
Usopp - Pinocchio/little boy that cried.....pirate
Enel - Eminem
Shura (ordeal of string guy) - Manfred von Richthofen/Red Baron
Franky - Popeye
Zoro - Zorro
Miss Goldenweek - Pippi Longstocking
Crocodile - Captain Hook
Neptune - Poseidon
Dr. Hogback - The guy that made Frankenstein
Kizaru - Kunie Tanaka
Aokiji - Yusaku Matsuda
Boa Hancock - Medusa
The first half of this chapter made me tear up a bit.
If only more pirate crews were like the Straw Hats in their ideals and beliefs.
I wonder what the Sky Path that Doflamingo was talking is.
It appears that he's using it, but I guess Law damaged part of it?
The second half of the chapter shows even more how much of a Chessmaster that Law is.
He seemingly has Doflamingo completely ensnared in his trap.
I'm very interested is seeing how the next few chapters play out!
The island the Caribou washed up on reminds me of Karakuri Island (Were Franky landed, and stayed during the time skip).
So the gas only creates an outer shell around people at first, to paralyze them.
If left alone long enough, the victims will eventually die of poisoning.
But if you can get to them soon enough, they can be treated and saved, nice.
Oh crap, Doflamigo has arrived on Punk Hazard...
And he's not happy at all.
Would have been nice to see a more even fight between Smoker and Joker.
Franky's hair style in this chapter is horrible.... >.<
Chopper and his interaction with Caesar was pretty funny. :p
Hmm, so it seems that Kinemon and Momonosuke will be sticking around for a little while longer, yay. :D
I wonder who is imprisoned friend is, and if they have any powers too.
Oh noes, don't die Smoker! D:
DAT ENDING! What the hell is Kuzan doing there?!
I guess that silhouette a few chapters back probably was him.
I feel better now that Kuzan is going to save Smoker! :D
