I am really loving Oda and his Robin and Nami fan service. Oh my. First Nami in the bath then a sweating, stripping Robin? Good grief.
Luffy and co. encounter a dragon and promptly cut its head off. Then encounter the lower half of what appears to be a samurai and Luffy promptly invites him to join the crew. Typical Luffy.
Also the half-samurai mentions that a Shichibukai is present on the island too.
The rest of the crew on the Sunny get gassed and kidnapped, except for Brook who the kidnappers assumed was dead. The kidnappers appear to work for Punk Hazard.
So far in this arc we have 4 different faction as far as I can tell.
- Straw Hats
- Punk Hazard workers
My guess is that the Shichibukai is Trafalgar Law. How else could you explain the samurai being cut in half and still being alive?
