    Default Chapter 988: Sorry for the Wait

    No, I'm not back. I never left. It's just that it has been a long time since I had something to say.

    Oh man the Sanji snark is even better in the official translation.

    And consider yourself sliced is just a peak Brook line.

    Wonder what queen will do now that he has nothing to guard? I'm hoping he runs into Kidd and Killer personally. He needs to be on the receiving end of some payback

    Aniki!

    Yeah, great chapter. Can't wait to see Sanji's fight with King continue.

    Hmm weird that Franky didnt mention the flowers in this translation, considering its a call back to Punk Hazard...

    Great chapter. The ending with Franky and Brook saving Nami from Big Mom was an amazing moment. I like that Nami called Franky, Big Bro which she normally wouldn't do.

    There's definitely some good action going on, but it falls surprisingly flat on me. Maybe because we're hitting again that point as in WCI where everything is just 2-3 panels of ppl doing flashy stuff instead of properly lad choregraphy ? I'm going to blame all the breaks. If there was more panel time, we might be allowed to actually see stuff instead of jumping around all the time.

    I sure hope Jimbei gets to fight Jack. I just want them to have some Fishman Island & Karate Dojo history. Them two beating the heck out of each other and remembering old times would be great for both characters I’d think.
    Sounds impossible considering Jinbe is 18 years his senior. (Jack is 28)

    Maybe he knew Arlong.

    Or maybe Arlong is also way old.

    Not sure I like the official translation of the final line. I don't think I really get what its referencing? Is it Nami crying? I think the flower line is much better.

    The chapter and thread title makes it sound like the OP is apologizing about a delay in getting the thread posted.

    It's disappointing to not see Dog's and Cat's Sulong forms with the way the last chapter ended. We can barely even see how the other minks look. And of course we cut away from the scene just when it's about to really start.

    Yeah sadly stephen either didnt catch the callback from the flower line Franky used back then, or he just decided against hit, i dont know... Overall the translation felt weird a lot of times. But that doesnt mean that there werent lines that were significantly better in the official. The one-liner of Sanji towards momo was epic in the official

    New review!

    Best chapter of Onigashima yet! Loved the Marineford parallel of saving Ace.

    Luffy: Shinobu
    Ace: Momo
    Mr. 3: SANji

    Wait, Franky's line was a callback to something he said in an earlier arc? Can somebody fill me in, I didn't get the reference either.

    Yeah this was the perfect moment for them to go sulong, can't understand why Oda skipped it

    Also he spent his double pages wrong. Minks were more deserving of a double spread while transforming.
