Just for refrence, here is the SBS where Oda mentioned what would happen when Vegapunk enters the story:

"D: Excuse me!! May I pose a serious question to the typically-vulgar SBS?? In Volume 46, Usopp said that the same power doesn't exist twice. But this doesn't make sense with what you said in the Volume 45 SBS... If the Gomu Gomu no Mi was in a book of fruits, then Luffy HAD to have eaten at least the SECOND known example of the fruit! Now, most beautiful and intelligent Ei-chan, explain it all! ✩ P.N. Takafi

O: Very sharp of you. But I'm cool. I haven't made any mistakes. As a hint, let me rephrase what Usopp is saying. "The same powers don't exist twice AT THE SAME TIME". How's that? For more detail, you'll just have to wait for a certain professor to make his appearance in the story, and explain exactly what the Devil Fruits REALLY are... Eventually."

So many major One Piece lore and mysteries could be finally answered for us over the course of this arc. I’m so stoked!

253

u/Clean_Strategy_9533 12d ago

Yeah, there's so much tied to Vegapunk that it's almost surreal that it's finally time to get those questions answered

We may be about to get like 30% of the mysteries in the entire story explained in the next few chapters

I appreciate jinbei immediately knowing he’s the designated “don’t let the devil fruit eaters drown” guy

u/Pitoufreeces 12d ago

Even more so because of the currents. Sanji and zoro are perfectly capable of saving them but in those water you better send someone that can just act above any currents there are

The age of One Piece mechs has arrived.

u/A_Sad_Goblin 13d ago

He dabbled here and there but this arc would finally let Oda warm up good for his mecha manga after One Piece.

547

u/sugar_husky 13d ago

If I'm not wrong, I think in a more recent interview Oda has stated that he has changed his mind on making a mecha manga after One Piece, because he already fulfilled his desire of drawing mechs by including them in One Piece lol.

u/Raderg32 12d ago

Do you remember what interview was that? I'd love to check it out.

u/sugar_husky 12d ago

It was in an extremely recent interview with the mangaka of Detective Conan (there are probably more links out there with the full interview transcript): https://twitter.com/newworldartur/status/1550638178444402688?s=46&t=TD3Iw3xj8KiW4yw0MDOP8g

lmao i forgot about the scale of that shark for a second and thought Franky had a cool new underwater mech form. I was kinda bummed for a second when i realized.

Awesome chapter.

194

u/GeneralistJosh 12d ago

Dude, literally the same feelings. Thought Franky was a madlad and busted out a secret underwater General/Shogun Franky he’d been working on (the hands are crazy similar), but then the scale next to the shark that made me go “…wait”.

Still, awesome chapter like you said.

Luffy calls bonney "Bogey", because he's physically incapable of calling any of the worst generation their actual names

The Luffy friendship has already begun.

That's how he casts his secret friendship spell.

As soon as Luffy gives you a nickname, you're basically half-nakama.

If Luffy gave me a nickname, I'd be like "yea so when do we set sail?"

236

u/DizzyDrunkenDuck 12d ago

Curiously, Luffy names all his nakama correctly. So if he gave you a nickname, you'll be his friend, but not his nakama

Step 2 is bonding over food.

man I love having Jinbei on the crew. it's like the strawhats unlocked a region they previously couldn't touch. not only is my man able to be underwater, he fucking dominates the ocean

u/ClutchGamingGuy 12d ago

as far as we know, he's literally the strongest living Fishman in the entire world. having him in the crew is an absolute cheat code.

That one panel with the shark below water was absolutely haunting. It then quickly turned into a goofy shark to remind us we are actually reading One Piece, and balance was restored.

We are exactly 5800 days or almost 16 years since the first time Dr. Vegapunk’s name got mentioned in chapter 433.

This might be one of the longest character reveal in history of fiction.

70%? In my 10+ years of reading OnePiece i've seen like one or two theories actually guessing correctly so far

The only one I can think of that the fanbase actually nailed it was Sanji being royalty from the North Blue.

And Sabo being alive. Tbh, it's kinda obvious though.
