One-on-one "honor duels" are a hallmark of the shonen manga genre, and Oda plays out the trope masterfully here. The last time we saw all the good guys and bad guys matched up so neatly was back in Alabasta, and in a neat visual callback to that story arc the cover of this volume is a mirror of One Piece, Vol. 43, just as Baroque Works faced off against the Straw Hats on the covers of One Piece, Volume 21: Utopia and One Piece, Vol. 22: Hope!!. Another trick Oda brings back is the switching of opponents during the fight. Not all of the matches go as planned, and there's some partner-swapping until the playing field is evened out.
It works, but only so far. I like the unpredictability of seeing the characters crash into other fights, especially one instance when Kaku's new devil fruit power is inadvertently revealed to readers for the first time. Where the trick fails is that when all is said and done by the next volume's end, the Straw Hats are paired with their most predictable counterparts.Read more ›
