what the f!!!! this arc is moving so slowly, especially with holiday breaks
Yeah but now Luffy can see into the future, Chopper is no longer a childish wimp, and Sanji has won the heart of a lady (not to mention that Brooke has been a BAMF this entire arc). Probably the best OP arc so far.

EDIT:

AND we're getting the fishman strawhat and probably the bunny too, what's not to love?
 
Based on what's been implied about Jinbe and possibly Carrot likely joining right after the end of Whole Cake Island, does that mean Luffy will have the complete crew he wanted as of the beginning of Wano? I wonder how these two would be placed in the groups like the first eight crewmates were during Dressrosa and this arc.

I absolutely think both Jinbe and Carrot are joining. Jinbe obviously got his role as helmsman clearly laid out this arc. Not totally sure what role Carrot would fill but her relationship with Chopper is fantastic.

My curiosity will be if Oda ever revisits the number chapters for Chopper and Robin, the only two current crewmembers to not have them (remember, Usopp and Nami both got number chapters when they rejoined the crew). Maybe Chopper's would tie in with Carrot joining -- aka something like "The Fifth and the Tenth ''''People''''"

Robin did get an entire story arc revolving around her to be fair.

I'm not sure myself if Carrot is going to join the crew, even if I do like her character.

Right, but so did Nami and she got her number chapter afterwards ;) It has obviously been a looooooong while, but Oda has shown that these things are significant and he thinks about them far in advance.
 
So I remember when we originally had Bounce-Man there was a post, I think by Chou Toshio about the strengths and weaknesses of each Gear form, with Bounce being something like:

Power++
Speed +
Agility - (because Luffy couldn't control the bouncing but could propel himself somewhat in different dirctions mid-air)

Snake-Man seems to be:

Speed++
Agility++
Power-x

Luffy doesn't seem to be hitting any harder than he usually does, but his ability to twist, bend, and strike immediately with Haki attacks has been greatly enhanced. It's an interesting take on Gear Four, this one seems to be about maximizing controlled stretchiness instead of raw haki inflation into muscles.

I want Jinbe to be Helmsman after this. Carrot is probably going to end up as an island-centric ally like Vivi.

I was assuming that Luffy only now went Snakeman given his Kenbonshoku powerup. He's predicting where Katakuri will be in the future and ricocheting his fists accordingly.

This chapter was alright - good action just didn't blow me away and now the momentum is fucked with a break next week zzz
