Big Mom Regains Senses, Sets Eyes on Traitor Capone – ‘One Piece’ Chapter 870

The Allied Forces of the Straw Hat and Fire Tank pirates are in grave danger in the next chapter of the long-running manga series, “One Piece.”

VIZ OFFICIAL WEBSITE

“One Piece” is a long-running manga series written by Eiichiro Oda and has been serialized in the “Weekly Shounen Jump” magazine since 1997.

Luffy and the rest of the perpetrators of the failed Big Mom Assassination plot may have found refuge in the Big Father, but the Big Mom Pirates have also found quick ways to incapacitate the towering form of the traitorous Capone. Big Father has been rendered immobile, with his limbs trapped in layers of sticky candy. His cannons have also been stuck with mochi balls, rendering them completely useless.

And even though Sanji and Germa 66 has decided to take their side, if only for a while, a much bigger threat is about to befall them all that may make it impossible to escape without someone ultimately making a necessary sacrifice.

Big Mom has finally regained her senses and is now very much aware of Capone’s attempt at ending her life. What will this mean for the leader of the Fire Tank pirates? Will the combined forces of Capone’s men, Luffy’s crew, and the Germa 66 be able to come up with a plan to distract the angered Yonkou pirate long enough to slip out of that place?

Will they all decide to fight even at the risk of their own life if it meant getting that once in a lifetime chance to bring Big Mom down once and for all? How will they defeat Big Mom’s highly efficient and downright merciless pirates? And will the previously unnoticed Pudding be making any bold moves to get herself involved in the upcoming battle? If so, whose side will she ultimately take?

Fans over at Reddit speculate that the enigmatic treasure box known as the Tamatebako, which Du Feld has attempted and failed to open in the midst of the ongoing chaos, may play a part in the upcoming all-out war. Will this mysterious box really be able to create a diversion big enough for the Allied Forces to make a run for it and live to fight another day?

“One Piece” chapter 870 comes out on the next issue of the “Weekly Shounen Jump” magazine.

Meanwhile, the 20th anniversary of “One Piece” continues with the release of 12 new UNIQLO shirts with designs based on the manga series. The shirts fall under UNIQLO’s T-shirt brand, “UT” with sizes ranging from XS to 4 XL. The shirts cost 990 yen each and feature designs that will fit fans both young and old.

READ MORE One Piece Reveals What Would’ve Happened If Ace Lived

It’s been years since One Piece fans were forced to face the death of Luffy’s adopted older brother. Ace D. Portgas met his untimely death at the hands of Akainu in a bid to save his younger brother. Luffy never fully recovered from the tragic loss, and the ordeal ultimately pushed the would-be Pirate King to train harder than ever before. So, of course, fans are stunned to learn they’ll find out what would’ve happened if Ace hadn’t been killed.

One Piece is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and creator Eiichiro Oda has plenty planned for the event. The artist has said several big projects will be unveiled in 2018 to commemorate the milestone, and one of those gifts will be a special 3-part manga titled “Luff.” The ‘what-if’ spin-off will reimagine One Piece as if Ace did not die saving Luffy, and its preview artwork will make fans cry an ocean.

Over on Twitter, user @YonkouProds recently shared one of the special’s first spreads. The work hasn’t been translated into English, but fans will recognize the panels. The art shows Sabo rushing Ace and Luffy before Akainu can skewer either of them with his fiery fist. Sabo, the pair’s other adopted brother, seems relieved to have saved his family – and Ace looks like he can’t believe what just happened.

For now, there is no word on how “Luff” will progress in the aftermath of Ace’s rescue, but fans are already hyped to see how the special turns out. Otakus everywhere are already pleading for Toei Animation to give the one-off an animated special down the road, and Ace may just get such a revival if readers don’t give up their petitions with the studio.

Who is Charlotte Perospero?

When it comes to the characters we love, Charlotte Perospero is definately one of them. The eldest son of the Charlotte Family, Charlotte is a member of the Big Mom Pirates, and Totto Land’s Minister of Candy.

Due to his actions, he is a major antagonist of the Whole Cake Island Arc.

He is tall and slim, his nose is pointy man with a pointed nose and a very long thick tongue.

He wears a long, yellow coat with a tall collar and the top buttons resembling large, indigo and white striped pieces of wrapped candy. The bottom of his coat has an indigo and white checkered design and large pale yellow beads along the hem.

There’s a magenta beaded bracelet on each wrist and his long sharp fingernails are painted dark purple. His large, indigo and white striped hat has magenta lollipops along its rim and a large, pale pink plume. Something large and purple with magenta polka-dots comes out from under his hat and curves upward on either side. His shoes have a long tip spiraling inward. He carries large magenta and pink candy cane with a curled top which he often licks.

Perospero shows his sadistic side by mocking a helpless Judge.

Perospero is extremely sadistic, taking great joy in tormenting others, such as when he threatened Caesar Clown with the prospect of being turned into candy and licked to death while also squeezing his heart for fun,[2] as well as when he mocked a sobbing Vinsmoke Judge once the latter realized Big Mom’s treachery.[5] Like his mother, he has a strong fondness for sweets, demonstrated when he gluttonously licked a giant candy cane while introducing Caesar to his new laboratory. He refers to people like he would candy, calling them “sweet” as he referred to Nami as a sweet “candy girl”.

He appears to be very affectionate and kind towards children as shown when he told a group of little children to be nice with each other as he offered them lollipops and allowed them to eat the candy escalator he made with his power.

He has a tendency to use the verbal tic, “Perorin♪”, at the beginning or end of his sentences. Like many other characters, he has a unique laugh: “Kukukuku”.

During the wedding, Perospero personally trapped the Vinsmoke Family in place with his Devil Fruit power and gleefully prepared to massacre each of them with the other members of the Charlotte Family. He listened to Judge’s tearful pleas for help but was utterly unsympathetic to the Germa King’s plight, comparing his state to a cow about to be slaughtered.[5] However, because of Luffy causing Big Mom to scream, Perospero was incapacitated and unable to kill Judge nor his children as Sanji would free his family from his grasp. When they were given their suits, he tried to kill them again only for Ichiji to attack him for his actions.

Straw Hat Pirates

Like the rest of his family, Perospero views the Straw Hats as enemies due to their stance against Big Mom. He first encountered them in the Prisoner Library where he taunted the captive Luffy and Nami, especially when Luffy challenged Big Mom again.

At the wedding ceremony, the Straw Hats caused a rampage and Perospero attempted to kill the Vinsmokes only for Luffy to prevent his actions by causing Big Mom to scream, incapacitating Perospero. This allowed Sanji to free his family from Perospero’s grasp and his crew to give them back their weapons.

After he regained his composure, he joined his family in forcing them to retreat into Bege’s fortress. Perospero managed to prevent the Straw Hats and their allies from escaping by trapping Bege’s fortress with candy before laughing at a lose-lose situation.

Originally, he trusted Bege due to the latter being seemingly loyal to Big Mom. Perospero entrusted Caesar Clown’s heart into the rook’s possession only for Bege to liberate the scientist for his own goals. At the wedding ceremony, he was confused by Bege’s actions as the latter revealed his true colors[16] which foiled Perospero’s attempts to kill the Vinsmoke Family.

After he regained his composure, Perospero prevented Bege from attacking his mother by creating a candy wall to block Bege’s cannon fire. To ensure Bege would not escape, Perospero trapped Bege’s giant castle in candy and laughed at the latter’s situation.
