This is the Luffy that's been lacking since the TS,
There go my hopes for this.
the execution was quite well done, even if this isn't how I wanted this to go down.
Luffy is pretty durable after fighting Cracker for 11hours to still take those attacks from Sanji and still be able to get up.
Damn.. I really liked how Luffy approached Sanji here. Once again Luffy is putting one of his Nakama before his dream and makes clear why he is the captain and everyone follows him. Very emotional and strong chapter. Got me good
What an awesome chapter. This is some preTS writing.
This is what Sanji needs to man up, pretty sure he will come back obviously with the help of chopper and carrot, maybe Jimbei and Penkoms.
It was a pretty good chapter, but the starving part felt unnecessary. I suppose going back to the ship and waiting would have been too similar to Ussop going back to the straw hats, which Oda might have wanted to avoid.
This was a very good chapter, better than the spoiler made it seem at the least. Oda did ruin the moment a bit by having Luffy lose a tooth and look goofy.
His crew telling him he'll be a pirate king is nice but saying he needs his crew to become a pirate king is ever better

The starving part was appeal to emotion, considering Zeff ate his own leg to give his food to Sanji and Luffy is almost doing the same, it is quite impactful because Luffy values Sanji this much.
Anyone noticed how impactful this was? Sanji's brothers were cheering for him thid chapter after they saw his skills at fighting but Sanji having the flashback lf being bullied for wanting to be a cook and Luffy saying he is not gonna eat was wow.
Literally every good as bit as Luffy vs Ussop.
Executed in a much different way but what just as good.
One of the best chapters so far Post Skip. Really hit home the preskip feeling that has been somewhat lacking from postskip.
