    It's on!!

    ミドラは餌に成るのは一龍だと言う。ミドラいわく万物は餌。
    ハングリートング(舌を伸ばし)で三匹の猛獣を喰う。
    そのまま一龍に攻撃するが一龍が避けずとも攻撃が当たらない。

    ミドラは自分の動きのズレに気付く。
    一龍いわくミクロ以下の誤差だがそれでも違和感を感じ取ったのは流石だと言う。
    それは平方根の法則 100個の竜氏が有る場合その平方根すなわち10個程度の粒子は例外的な振る舞いをす る。
    例えば100個の原子でできた生物を空に放つと90は重力で落下するが残り10は例外的な振る舞いで上昇し ようとしたり空中にとどまったりと重力には従わない
    ※詳しくは本誌で
    一龍はその原子を利用して空を飛ぶ。
    ミドラの中野少数派も少しずつ影響力を持ち始めてるぞと言う一龍。
    ミドラはいばらの舌(多数のトゲの付いた舌)を出し攻撃。その全てを一龍は移り箸でうけ切る 。
    ミドラは自分で殴るも一龍は避ける事もせずせせり箸で攻撃。ミドラの中の少数派が大きな誤差を生んでい る。
    一龍『ここからは・・・ワシの時間じゃ』
       『マイノリティーワールド』

    You're telling me Midora fights with his tongue..? What the..

    Ichiyruu seems to overpower Midora with ease, I bet Midora will use some sort of underhand tactic.

    That's creepy as hell. I kinda like it. Fits the guy who has been hyped as having a frighteningly all-consuming appetite.

    It's pretty clear Shima is laying down homosexual innuendos with this like he has done in the past, however, I do like how Midora has a sort of animalistic quality to him. Looks like the fight is just getting started. I am now slightly worried that none of the other fights will be shown so I dearly hope that soon we shift focus.

    When Jinbei comes back to the Straw Hats with tears in his eyes because he was able to break off the deal with Big Mom and somehow evade her, just as he reaches out to Luffy saying "Luffy-kun! I pledge my allegiance to you ---" he's cut off as several holes open up in his torso. His eyes bulge wide as he looks down with blood starting to pour from his wounds and mouth. He falls to his knees as Luffy runs up to him but by the time he hits the ground, he's already dead.

    The panels then focus behind Jinbei and surges forward. The panels zoom past several islands, some of which have buildings and even mountains with holes in them. The trajectory follows until we find Van Augur with a smirk on his face, lowering his gun. With the utmost pleasure, he says "Even if it costs you your life." An intro box says Captain of the Second Fleet of the Blackbeard Pirates, Van Augur the Supersonic. Bounty 590,000,000 Berries.

    It's as clear what's going on here as with everything else involving Dofla. The purpose is to maintain at all costs the view that he has no ability to do anything against an Admiral. People around here have used their preconceptions as the premise for judging anything related to him for a long time. Everything that happens is filtered through and fit around a very specific predetermined idea of how strong he, and others, are. I'm just not interested in playing along with this any further. I'm not going to agree on the premise that Dofla was being completely deluded when he is one of the most clear-minded people in the series in terms of his own strength, as well as knowledge about the world and intelligence. Not until further evidence starts showing up to support that point, which, so far, it hasn't, it has only supported that he knew exactly what he was doing and had the bite to back up his bark. It's just that simple.

    I'll try to keep this spoiler friendly, but basically Kumagawa is an extremely original character in a genre that is oversaturated with the same character archetypes that are repeatedly used over and over, and his character is done very well so that in and of itself should put him on an above average level as a character. the only thing he has going for him is that he happens to be the single most negative person on the planet. he's a born loser because he has never won a single thing in his life (by "single thing" I don't mean a single fight, I mean he loses at literally everything he does, he's not smart, he's not good looking, he's not popular, he's weak, etc. etc.). his main goal is pretty unique among shonen villains, it can basically be boiled down to jealousy, which is actually a realistic and relatable motive (maybe not to the extreme that he's taken it, but yeah). he also tries to keep this side of him permanently hidden under a facade which can be best described as being very similar to the Joker's personality

    he is a great villain because of how relatable his motive is, his methods are unconventional and unpredictable, both his powers and fighting style are pretty original (kind of important for a battle manga), and he is smart/strong enough as a villain to make his arc interesting and suspenseful (well as much suspense as possible for someone who is incapable of winning anything ever. at times the tension will become more like "how will Kumagawa even manage to lose this fight" rather than "how will the protagonists even manage to win this fight"). the entire "unable to win anything" dynamic is extremely unique for a villain who provides by far the biggest challenge for the protagonists (at that point in the story at least). his unpredictability isn't him doing random things for the sake of being random which would just ruin the story, they are extremely random from our (normal) points of view but from his twisted ways of thinking they make sense and work for the most part. his relatability and flaws aren't always present right from his introduction, he's initially presented as almost a Gary Tsu-type character except apparently he's really negative and somehow loses all the time, but we simultaneously get to watch how increasingly twisted but at the same time human of a character he is, and then he finally drops his facade fully and we learn his true motive.

    I like Koffing a lot because I feel he encompasses all the good traits of a non-animal pokemon. People like to complain about how pokemon nowadays are made out of stupid shit like Ice Cream cones and Gears, Koffing's concept is no more normal than this, but the implementation of Koffing's concept into a recognizable character and cool monster is what makes him one of my favorite pokemon.

    He represents air pollution and the undesirable, mutated life that is feared can result from this pollution. But instead of wallowing in his seemingly unwanted existence, Koffing embraces life with a Jolly no-fucks-given attitude. He's happy to be alive and enjoys it by taking big risks. His survival depends on his ability to create and release highly toxic gases, and for no fucking reason he'll just explode instantaneously. He sports a skull and cross bones on his body. He can not only attack with all sorts of poisonous gases and substances, but use a wide array of fire type attacks as well.

    Koffing is inheritely hardcore. Akainu can try all he wants to become a pirate killing machine, but Koffing is the fucking embodiment of destruction and thrives on all things dangerous to life. If Luffy were a pokemon, he'd be a fucking Koffing. You know who's going to kick Akainu's ass? Luffy.

    As much as I lov this fight, I think Shimabu should show bits of less relevant fights first to build up suspense towards the main one. This also goes for the cooking festival, he could have shown some matches before the Komatsu vs Zaus (even if, and specially because, didnīt came to be because of the Bishokukai invasion)

    It is still too early in the fight to tell but Ichiryu seems to be stronger than Midora, if this continues at this pace I have a hard time believing Midora defeats Ichiryu fair and square. Adding to that, I see why Jirou keeps calling Midora the little tiger, causein the past he was far to inferior compared to him and Ichiryu.

    And that tongue is absolutely disgusting, but it does emphasize that he is absolutely a glutton.

    Though this chapter looks criminally short, I love Midora's tongue design. I was afraid he'd turn out just like Starjun, aka bland and without personality. But that tongue is near Tommyrod level weird.

    The chapters feel short when large amounts of panel time are spent on making the visuals and attacks look awe-inspiring. Shima doesn't shy away from spending double-spreads and panels in general lavishly just for more impact which makes the content of each chapter dwindle a little. It's a positive and a negative, I feel like he has gone further than before recently though and could perhaps step back a little.

    It's annoying on a weekly basis, but I'm sure it'd be better read in bulk. Still, we've just come out of an arc of constant fighting so having a fight that takes many weeks isn't too welcome by me.

    It really does feel like nothing happened the past two chapters. They just wizzed by in part because of how exciting it all is.

    Well that tongue thing was definitely not what i was expectin' of Midora. although i do say it kinda emphasizes how much of a monstrous eater he is.
    Im interested in seein' more of what he can do, but am also hopin' that we will be headin' on over to some of the other fights so as ta confirm that Shima will not be offpanelin' em. Im lookin' forward to seein' Alfaro's bout.
    Nonetheless, Ichiryuu seems to be takin' the upper hand on Midora. The ol' man really know's how ta put on a show.

    Also lookin' forward to the translations. I always enjoy when there is an explanation within the chapter an i wanna know what it is all about.

    Man, nice chapter. Midora's tongue is freak as hell. Ichiryuu had the upper hand in this chap though.

    Makes we wonder about how the President actually was defeated ..

    It's an habit of his. Depicting entire splashes make said moments gain more impact, which gives the readers the sensation the chapter felt too short. Early in the series there's one good example with the first 2 chapters of volume 3.

    Anyway, seems it's quite an interesting chapter. From what I managed to translate myself Ichiryuu states Midora has an awkward composition and that he's a beast in himself.

    Why people are so naive to think that fighter gaining an upper hand at the beginning of the fight is stronger? This is puzzling to me and against Shonen logic.
