Re: One piece 696
Luffy may want to go at it with Shanks but I don't think it'll be a serious fight either. Although I also think it'll be a great fight. Shanks is a Yonkou so he's not a push-over and will allow Luffy to fight with all of his strength. I expect something similar to happen with the rest of the crew members like Yassop vs Ussop for example. Does Shanks have an elite swordsman on board? I don't recall seeing anyone like that in his crew.
The chapter was pretty good though. The Land of Wano looks to be like the next setting for the upcoming arc. I hope Mononosuke joins the crew, Luffy to a liking to him similar to how he got Chopper. I mean, Dragon, come on. Also, Don Flamingo wasn't shown in this chapter. I wonder how he's going to interfere with the SH crew if he manages to get there on time.
