all i gotta say to this chapter is oh my fcking god 😀 i am so suuuuuuuuuuper happy right now xD im gonna get more in dept with the whole sabo thing towards the end of the review so i hope you will enjoy 😛
so the chapter starts off with Bellamy getting a beating from one of doffy’s guy when bartolomeo shows up and saves him and the guys that was beating Bellamy leaves. then Bellamy start saying he doesnt want his help and stuff but bartolomeo is so kind hearted and says “i wouldnt let a friend die without helping” and Bellamy says he has nothing to live for.
the next scene is at the flower bit where usoland, robin and franky plus the toy army is located. so since the name of this chapter is “dressrosa operation sop” so at the flower bit the toy guy start talking about the plan they have made called “operation sop” which is a plan to take on the toy factory. the plan is to take out the girl with the hobby fruit which is the person that made everyone into toys. and when all the toys turn back into humans they will not know what would hapen to them if they are going to be mad or happy or if the country is gonna be in chaos when it happens. but alteast we now know that usopp and the guys are going to have to fight a subordinate of doflamingo.
now back to the colluseum. now this is the place where it gets interesting. luffy is still looking for the way out and he meets Bellamy and Bartolomeo. Bartolomeo then collapse because he thinks Luffy is so cool that he cant look at him, Bartolomeo is acting like Luffy is a god 😛 actually it wont suprise me if he becomes a new straw hat pirate in the future and that would actually be pretty cool. but anyways. Bellamy then tells luffy there is no way out of the colluseum but that he can follow Bellamy on his way out since he knows the way out but i think its ehavily guarded or something.
Then now is the moment ive been waiting for, for a long long time. we see a guy walking, we can only see his feet and we can see luffy looks over at him. Then we can see him saying “The “fire fruit” can be given to you, strawhat Luffy” then Bartolomeo is like made since he is talking to luffy that way and start saying he doesnt know about the relationship with luffy and ace and that they were brothers. BUT!! he then just hit Bartolomeo away, but it doesnt seem like he is even trying to hit him. we can then see luffy talking to the guy but we cant see what they are saying. and then suddendly we see some tears from luffy’s eyes and then the next page is one of the coolest face portraits Oda has done of luffy if u ask me. a whole page just of Luffysa face reaction. then it cuts to that Luffy is outside with zoro in a costume as a toy to get out. we then see luffy cries all the time he is running. and the first time i read the chapter i was like, why is he crying and that was because i didnt notice he was talking to a guy and i thought Bellamy was the person to talk to luffy about taht he couldnt get the fire fruit. but i took one more look and it was Sabo!
then in the next scene we can see probably a friend of sabo talking to him on the den den mushi. And the cool thing is that Oda made the design of her hat almost as Sabo’s hat.
then we get to know her name and that she is from the revolutionary army which means that Dragon actually found sabo the day he was shot at that boat and that he took him in. so Sabo has been in the revolutionary army all along and i think the reason why Sabo never has made an entrance before was because dragon felt like he wasnt strong enough. and that is probably the reason why he didnt appear at the war at marineford. but as you know Robin was at the revolutionary army during the 2 years of training so she must have known about Sabo but she hasnt said anything about it. but what everyone did during the 2 years of training is still pretty unknown, all we know is that some of them became alot stronger.
but we still havent seen Sabos face or anything but right now the evidence and what has happend we know that sabo is alive. and the ending of this chapter is soooo magnificent. it ends with Luffy saying “i really never thought he would be alive… I… ive always thought… always thought… he was dead!!! and we can see the three cups of sake Luffy, Ace and Sabo drank to become brothers when they were kids.
and right now everything leads to that Sabo is alive!!! i am so happy that sabo is finally back and ive always known he was alive because when sabo was introduced he just died short after and Oda wouldnt indtroduce such a big person in the series and just kill him. and also we know Oda he is super good at making suprises! so ive known there was some hidden stuff about Sabo, but i never knew he would be such a big person. but i bet Oda has great plans of Sabo since he hasnt been seen since he was a kid which is suuuuper long ago. and i wold admit i has been crying a little of hapyness because Sabo finally is back 😀 also i got to read it before i went to school so i take the bus for like 45 mins so ive just been thinking about this whole Sabo thing 😛 also ive now written thsi review during my english class 😛 so hope you like it xD and sorry for such a long review 🙂 and also dont forget to follow the blog for weekly reviews and daily sketches and drawings!
