I didn't know it was Doflamingo that took off his arm, but Z was a fucking monster, not the biggest ever, but if you can stand toe to toe with Kizaru you're a somebody in this manga, and not just anybody. The movie wasn't all I expected but his power levels were off the chart.
Also the Blind Swordsman is very nostalgic the way his conversation went on with Luffy, kind of how he met BB the first time after getting beat up. Its just an odd look the Luffy has, thats not like 'I want you to join my crew'. I can't put my finger on it, but he had the same look with the Swordsman as Blackbeard back in the day. The one thing is that both seemed to own Luffy's attention, but not in a silly, or even pissed off way, more... focused.
