Re: One Piece Manga Chapter 698 Discussion and 699 Predictions
I pretty much exprected Doflamingo to have conquerors haki, and I'm glad I was right. He kind of deserves it and it's been some time since last time a character was introduced with it. I also hope his Devil fruit ability isn't just some sharp, invisible strings that can control people. I want something more than that, mostly because that ability has been kept a secret from the readers, by Oda, for about 400 chapters now.
Both Kinnemon and Momonosuke seems to be hiding something when it comes to Kaido. I'm really not sure what they might be hiding, but could it be that the Wano country is Kaido's territory? That would make sense, based on the fact that Luffy and the crew are on their way there.
Smoker is probably going to have a hard time later on, when he's probably in the Marineford hospital or something, considering he's been defeated three times in less than 50 chapters. His confidence might have been turned around now that he realizes he's too weak to protect his G5 subordinates.
It seems the prediction about Aokiji was correct after all, something most of us expected I think. His entrance was pretty epic as well, something I hoped it would be. I wonder if we'll get to know of his business on Punk Hazard, which is currently unknown.
Overall, a really great chapter, the best I've read in months actually. It had both action and information about the New World, so I give it 5 stars. I can't wait for Luffy's next battle to take place, which is probably on Dressrosa.
