    Wow, awesomeness.

    Most of the match-ups were a surprise to me, other than Lucci/Luffy and Zoro/Kaku. I totally did not even consider Sogeking fighting Jyabura. That's going to be a totally unpredictable fight.

    I should have seen Sanji/Kalifa coming...this is going to be an amusing fight. ^_^

    I started laughing at Franky looking for the break room to find cola. Perhaps he's going to learn to draw strength for other sources...or conserve better.

    Nami/Kumadori....strange. Don't konw how that's going to go.

    Now about Chopper...it almost seems like there's missing information, because Chopper is there one moment, and then he's gone, and nobody seems to notice or question that he's gone. There must be a reason for that. He might be figthing Funkfried (the elephant-sword) or maybe Blueno will wake up.

    Poor Lucci, he must be pissed that Spandam dragged him away from the fight. Not that he won't get his, though.

    :
    These are only fights for now. There are obviously more ahead.


    The only person missing is Chopper.

    I don't think he's going to just help someone. I'm guess he'll go after Spandam and fight the elephant, while Luffy fights Lucci, but maybe not.

    PS - You would have to be a moron if you're not caught up to Water 7 and you're reading these spoilers.

    Yaaay, I'm a moron

    I'm planning on cosplaying as Kaku for Otakon '06, so learning his powers very soon has really worked out for me. I'm kinda disappointed that Zoro's fighting him and not Ussop, but I guess there's nothing I can do about it.

    Do you think Smoker's name will be changed to Chaser like Zoro was changed to Zolo? I think it is very likely. After all, you guys said it would be for commercial and merchandising purposes.

    Shame on you!

    I was kind of hoping it would be a long-nosed battle, but I didn't have my heart set on it. Sogeking ighting Jyabura is pretty amazing and totally unpredictable.
    Besides, the thought of Zoro totally pwning Kaku makes me happy. ^_^

    Eh, but from what I can make of it (and if I'm wrong, PLEASE correct me, I dunno what I'm talking about half the time) it's something like "Hey, I clashed blades with you for about two seconds in that burning building when you had the cape on, therefore we must have an honorable fight of some sort! Ha ha!". Whereas, aside from just the similiar looks, Kaku's the guy who pushed the Merry-Go out of Franky's place and into the stormy sea, which obviously Ussop would be pissed as hell about. I don't know what Jyabura is capable of, aside from him being one of the stongest in CP9, and while it IS surprising, I guess I just got my hopes up a little bit too much @_@

    No, it was more like "my sword wants your blood ROR!" XD That naughty Zoro.

    Well, this fight isn't about revenge. I would be very disapointed in Usopp if after all this time, all he's concerned about is avenging Merry. He's gone all this way, even though he left the crew, becaues he wants to fight for Robin. I think he's over Merry and focused on the LIVING.
    And the ship's name is Going Merry, not Merry-Go. Darn 4klds/Viz and their pointless name changes.

    Jyabura is apparently a wolf-zoan user as well as knowing Rokushiki.

    I'm well aware that it's "Going Merry" considering all of the subbed episodes I've watched. I just tend to say Merry-Go because it's shorter and easier to say, plus it's what I heard first.

    Well, ok then. I just say Merry. Actually if you were speaking Japanese, Merry-gou would be a correct way to say it, because -gou is a suffix - it's like "san" but for a ship.

    hmm... get two people with one moving the legs near the ass like in those cartoons like Family Guy? Or we could wait and see his half form if he can master his half form.

    I waited for HQ and translation.

    TAHAHA, and much hilarity ensues. I'm so happy that we get to see an example of an inexperienced DF user. It makes you realize how much time and effort it must take for one to really hone their skills. Poor Kaku. I never would have expected a Giraffe. XD That's so awesome. And Jyabura looks awesome too, I love the Tex Avery crossed with asian look.

    And YEAH Usopp, he's still afraid, but he's standing his ground with convinction.
    I have no idea where this is going, though. Will Usopp and Zoro team up? Will the switch back and forth? Will more fights collide? Long before the fights started, I thought that the strawhats really making use of teamwork would be a great thing to unify them. They've mostly fought as lone wolves in the past, with the exception of Usopp and Chopper. I'd kind of like to see them ALL work together, but either way, it's going to be cool.

    PS - badass Usopp line: "Enough with the trash talk! If you want a fight let's fight! I came here to save Robin!"
