You know I don't think Rogers was the original owner of the Strawhat, considering the guy who gave it to Luffy had it when he was young in Whitebeard's crew. Unless I got my history wrong, which I could.
For the first time since the timeskip I feel like this is going somewhere again. Van Dekken has an interesting ability. I like how he used it for a sneak attack (though he should have given his men some kind of protection). Do we know where franky and Robin are? My guess is that franky is with the Sunny and Robin is in a library or something.
So some interesting new powers for the crew have been revealed. Brook can now leave his body and float around as a spirit. Robin can apparently now make her entire body appear anywhere (as opposed to just limbs) resulting in what seems to be teleportation.
Stuff is going down? Maybe?
Franky has his old hair back. No explanation has been given so far, but thank for for that.
I don't like the whole combination robot thing, although I admit that his shoulder cannon was pretty hillarious!
Brook being able to hypnotize crowd of people with his music, might be the least interesting post-timeskip power so far, especially since there's already a rookie captain who has exactly the same power and makes more interesting use of it.
Sanji learning to walk in the air because he ran out of places to flee to is both awesome and hillarious.
Well, fair enough. But most of the other strawheads are breezing through leagues and leagues of pirates.
Nami took out one and Usopp a couple.
I know they'll never be among the hard hitters of the team, but I'm sure Usopp at least will be able to hold his own against one of the fishmen bosses.
Luffy vs Hodi (obviously)
Zoro vs the drunk octopus swordfighter (no surprise there)
Sanji and Jimbei vs the giant pufferfish (I don't know, the giant never really looked very competent, should be a breeze for those 2)
Usopp vs the little digging guy (really looking forward to that one!)
Chopper vs the hammerhead (I'm really digging choppers new look!!)
Franky vs the guy with the 8 arms (I dont know)
Brook vs the chameleon (never really cared for Brook)
Robin and Nami provide support I guess?
I'm really looking forward to Zoro, Usopp and Chopper going all out! It will probably be a while untill that happens though. They'll easily breeze through their opponents first and won't have much of a challenge untill they start taking the drug Hodi used.
