To all One Piece Fan including me, we had a very bad news today. I found news at shonenjump.com saying that One Piece is on Hiatus for this week. Our hero Oda was suddenly fallen sick, and he needs complete rest for at least few days. For those who can read Japanese character, you may read more here...
In the mean time, who will get the Mera Mera fruit, formaly owned by Luffy's brother Ace. I love to see Luffy get power up by eating 2 devil fruits, but it will spoil the spirit of One Piece. I prefer if Luffy stay with his Gomu Gomu power and make it stronger with haki imbued. If Straw Hat really managed to get Mera Mera fruit, I would like to see Ussop to eat the fruit because it is very suitable for long range fighter.
My prediction for next chapter is Luffy and the mysterious old man move to new safer place for talking, they become friend but have to fight in the end because the old man is Joker man. On the other side, Law team will meet Joker and started a fight. I like to see these both team to lose on their first fight, and return again to counter attack with full power and proper plan.
It would be good if there is an interruption from the marine on this arc. Two groups of pirate fighting each other for their own reason, and marine in between trying to capture both group will be great episode. I want to see how much strong Straw Hat Pirate has became after 2 years of training, and what amount of danger the new world can offer in One Piece World.
Whoah!!, I can imagine anything will happen in One Piece world. Anything can happen as Oda is very genius in making character and story line, that's why One Piece manga is different from the others. But one thing, I don't want to see them lose in this fight. Straw Hat pirate must win the battle, otherwise the value of 2 year training will go in vain. They have great teachers to train them, I cannot see any reason for them to stay weak.
