I would have preferred a glare of determination or a smirk from Sanji though. Maybe next chapter.
"Don't count the days, make the days count"
I thought jimbei was being pubished by big mom
"Cersei is as gentle as King Maegor, as selfless as Aegon the Unworthy, as wise as Mad Aerys. She never forgets a slight, real or imagined. She takes caution for cowardice and dissent for defiance. And she is greedy. Greedy for power, for honor, for love."
Either he backed down or Big Mom did not give him too hard a punishment. He seems to be absolutely fine so i don't think anything serious happened. While backing down is unlike Jinbie it would make sense if the roulette gave a result that would endanger his life and he thought "no i can't die before i meet Luffy and co again" and asked BM if he could back out of it.
Brook's resolution ain't bad at all.

If Sanji doesn't do something big whether he goes crazy or crafts a masterful plan. He's really fallen low.
Brook is such a fucking badass for confronting Big Mom like that!
People are so quick to judge sanji for showing his true emotions and not resorting to hatred.
This guy has the heart of a whale. He can't rise more in my books. He's the truest form of a gentleman.
You guys are gonna all eat your words when he goes Mr. Prince style and fucks Big Mom's wedding up like no tomorrow.
I was expecting anger too but crying? This is why this "lady love" gimmick needs to die. He gave up fighting for himself and his crew and relied on marrying Pudding who he had known a few hours at most and now he's crying because she isn't a perfect princess and instead an evil Big Mom pirate? Come on now. That was weak. Poor Sanji. His character just keeps getting wrecked.
However, Brook's panel with Big Mom was absolutely gorgeous. The best thing this chapter. Jinbei's entrance was also pretty good. Though I absolutely hate the character, I can't deny that that entrance was great. I'm confused as to why he's not missing a body part though. Guess that'll be explained. Anyway.
You guys keep pointing this shit out, but you keep forgetting it's not a realistic scenario to beat Big Mom at this point in time.
Why does everybody keep forgetting what happened to the Straw Hats at Shabaody Archipelago?
Sanji He doesn't want his comrades to die, and doesn't want a repeat of that scenario again. Even IF they're much stronger than before.
People are so quick to judge Sanji for his soft character and want him to 'MAN UP' whatever the fuck that is.
It's what makes him a true gentleman, he's also a cook first and foremost, not a swordsman or a pirate captain.
edit: Also he's not crying cause she's not a 'perfect' princess. He knew that was a true realistic scenario from the get go.
It's just that he put all his money on this one in a millino chance that he could sacrifice himself and the rest would be fine. A bit like Robin.
He's just despairing.
So stop giving him so much trouble.

.....um, who said anything about beating Big Mom?
....um, how is that relevant to Sanji crying about a person from a shady background who he had known for a few hours? Yeah, it's other things that add on to that but still.Why does everybody keep forgetting what happened to the Straw Hats at Shabaody Archipelago?
....and this matters to him blubbering instead of thinking of a way to get his crew out of there and save Zeff becaaaauuuseee???Sanji He doesn't want his comrades to die, and doesn't want a repeat of that scenario again. Even IF they're much stronger than before.
....when in the name of Heaven and Earth did I EVER say "MAN UP" in over 10,000 posts on this forum? At this point, you're just venting at the collective, I know, but you quoted me. For me---Pacifista---this has nothing to do with that and everything to do with Sanji being the character that he has shown himself to be in the past.People are so quick to judge Sanji for his soft character and want him to 'MAN UP' whatever the fuck that is.
....um, no. In situations like these, Sanji thinks of a way to save his crew. Not once has he ever given up until now. Here, he sees no way out and thus gave up fighting and resigned himself to fate. Back in East Blue, he fought Gin even though he considered him a friend. Even when Zeff was put at risk with a gun to his head and Sanji stopped fighting---not once did you see him give up. His eyes were looking straight ahead. I could give an example nearly every arc.It's what makes him a true gentleman, he's also a cook first and foremost, not a swordsman or a pirate captain.
And don't give me that "he's not the captain" stuff. Yes, Luffy is the Captain but Sanji also has a powerful leadership position within the crew and will check even the Captain if need be in order to keep the integrity of the crew or even lead parts of them in the absence of the Captain.
Even more of a reason as to why this is so ridiculous. He put his hopes on a pipe dream for no reason. Pudding was his only hope? Why? Because she's a pretty woman? How shallow is that against everything he's stood for until now.edit: Also he's not crying cause she's not a 'perfect' princess. He knew that was a true realistic scenario from the get go.
That's not enough. He just ignored the issues and focused on catering to Pudding. And a bit but not much.It's just that he put all his money on this one in a millino chance that he could sacrifice himself and the rest would be fine. A bit like Robin.
Poster, it's ODA that's giving him trouble. Sanji is a fighter and always has been. To see him broken like this doesn't make any sense. Again, to see him broken like this is uncharacteristic and way too simple, especially at this point in the story.He's just despairing.
So stop giving him so much trouble.
I don't see a problem with Sanji crying at all, for me it's the most realistic emotion he should be showing.
That's kind of the impression I got. Opera seemed too casual with him "Woah, you're not supposed to be in the castle ground at this moment" sounds more like Big Mom was mildly unsatisfied with him and gave him a timeout. If he actually left her crew and got his life cut I would expect Opera to be a bit more frantic and along the lines of "How did you get in here!? You turned your back on Big Mom and are no longer welcome among us!"
I also noticed Opera's eyes weren't whited out in that last panel which makes me think he's likely to get back up.
