Chapter 550: Marine Headquarters
Gah, over 600 chapters and I only have to pick 8. Is that even possible? It’s hard so I’ll just have those that pops out off the top of my head.
First would be Chapter 550.
What’s great about this chapter?
That two-page spread of the Royal Shichibukai. Mihawk, Kuma, Doflamingo, Moria and Hancock all lined up at the front line of the Marineford… STUNNING.
The introduction of the third admiral. The Red Dog. AKAINU. And my golly, he’s wearing floral-printed shirt and even have a flower tattoo! So manly! XD Kidding aside, I had goosebumps seeing those three sit beneath the execution platform like nobody’s business. They looked so formidable. So menacing. And I know that they were marine officials but they looked so Mafia-like! Wow. Just WOW.
And the best part of the chapter…
If this is a list of best chapters, this chapter might probably belong to the top 5 or even 3rd best in the entire series. That’s because it holds, what I believe, until now, the biggest plot twist that ever happened in One Piece. No… No. I never seen anything as big of a plot-twist in other mangas like this. This is the biggest plot twist ever written in the history of mangas. Nothing can ever beat this!
Ace is the son of the goddamn Pirate King!
Where the hell did Oda pull that from? It was very SHOCKING! Unbelievable. Mind-boggling. It was just something so UNEXPECTED. I don’t think anyone saw that coming!
Yes, Ace and Luffy aren’t blood related! NANIIIIIII!?!?!?! I had a major headache after that chapter. I almost fainted. My goodness.
Ace, being introduced as Luffy’s brother, naturally, I assumed that he was also Dragon’s son. But my God, no! He’s Rogers! I was initially unsure about how will I respond to this kind of plot twist. But Ace being the only child of the Pirate King perfectly makes sense.
Portgas D. Rouge, Ace’s mother, was also introduced. A female “D.” at last! And boy, she is one hell of a mother! All my respect!
This chapter is just a proof of how master-mindfucker Oda is. It’s already cliche to say but he’s truly a genius. And this was the chapter where he proved that to everybody.
