THIS IS A MANGA ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS ANYTHING BEYOND THIS CHAPTER.
----------------------------------------
A wild Kawamatsu appears! Interesting to know about his sumo wrestling past.

Kiku also has an interesting sword in her arsenal. Now I really want to see Kiku kick some ass with that mask on. Too bad there's a break next chapter so have to wait a bit.

Kawamatsu looks pretty interesting. Kiku's mask looks sick too. Too bad we have break.

Fixed that for you. She is a he. Kiku is an okama. Poor Sanji. It'll break his heart.

Now its on, finally we get to see the appearence of the man behind the cell and he looks so weird and badass like I imagined him to be.

I hope that after the break we see Luffy finally winning a proper fight in Wano and all the presents kicking some ass on the Prison or Kaido and Big Mom finally having a conversation.

Also, I'm very thankful for this new Cover Story.

Kawamatsu has a much more adorable face than I expected.

The last page looks badass!

I didn't think I would like Kawamatsu's appearance but I was pleasantly surprised by it. I must say that I'm a little disappointed that Kiku isn't a female samurai but an Okama, thought they would be way more cooler as a female samurai. I will say that I dig the mask though.

Kiku is a trap......why must you do this Oda? Why....just why......

Anyway, Kawamatsu has finally appeared and he looks....interesting to say the least. Too bad we have to wait an extra week to see these guys kick some ass, that last page looked really cool.

Oh wow, O-Kiku is officially the first okamu we've gotten who does not have an extremely flamboyant design like Ivankov.
I used to be a watchmaker.

Oda loves traps, i guess its an homage to the time where he came up with that okama with a scythe in rurouni kenshin, sorry i forget his name

I think Kiku might be Izou's sibling.

Kawamatsu is cool. Now only Denjiro is left.

Guess being a trap is a family thing then xD But it explains Kikus heightwould still bang, tho

Good chapter overall. We were shown that Udon's prisoners are indeed traumatized and that the thought of Kaido and Orochi inspires hopelessness in them. Now it's up to the squad to show them they way into freedom again. The panel with everyone standing together looked pretty cool and considering how strong the Scabbards are supposed to be we have quite the force there. Not to mention that Kid and Killer are still around, as well as the other Yakuza Bossess.

Also, we got pretty much confirmation that it was Kawamatsu who shared a drink with Crocus on the cover of chapter 631. But how and why did he went there. According to the Jailer they're trying to execute him for 13 years.. looking forward to the explanation.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake and 957 brought the salvation

Highlight of this chapter is that Kiku is a male.

Kiku being an Okama opens up a couple of posibilities. Like, Because he said he was a woman by heart, does that mean that he wants to be a female? Because if that's the case, it might hint at Ivankov making an appearance in Wano.... All speculation though.

Two things:

Luffy looks really bulk, like his torso is basically the same that when he is on snake man. I hope Oda continues to make the character look more muscular towards the end of the series, instead of giving him the big torso-no leg body, or something like that.

O-kiku is a male...

We have been betrayed, back stabbed and quite possibly, bamboozled.

Lol at the reveal of Kiku.
It's cool to see them group up. Hope they break out the prison.

Damn, Kawamatsu looks so cool. The best character design of all Nine Red Scabbards. Can't wait for last member.


very nice pic

Finally we get a new cover story! We see Capone's crew having successfully left Big Mom's territory. Will we see Jinbei next? Probably not.

The chapter was kickass, really loved that "avenger style shot" at the end.
Too bad there is going to be an hiatus for a week

That last panel is sick.

Surprised about Kiku being a man, although that should have been obvious (for Japanese readers at least).

So, Kaido is immortal because he has the "armor of the armored Haki" or am I wrong? The new technique of Rufy can destroy him internally but really Big Mom nor Shanks or BB can't use it? It's so strange...

Rayleigh can do it, it's likely Shanks can use it to.

Big Mom used it to open one of her doors.

Yeah, i remember Kayle collar put off by Raylegh but i can't remember the door part of big mom, thanks, that's was important. So, just few people can use this ability, probably Blackbeard too. Kaido is really strong but not immortal, i think he has an important weak point that rufy is going to be discover. The real battle will be insane.

Kawamatsu looked cute for me! Hilarious how the antagonists forgot Chopper, oh man that was funny.

Never thought Kiku was a man, what a beautiful man he is!

Those were some pretty cool entrances, love the fighting stance at the end there. Kawamatsu looks pretty strong. Love his design.

Okiku said that she identifies as a woman, yet all the comments are either calling her a man or a trap. Although tbh it's partly Oda's fault, cause he has always used being transgender as a joke.

Man, the One Piece fandom really sucks. Although this kind of disgusting comments are found on most shounen fandom.
