“Shandian Rhythm”



“Pirate Luffy vs. Kami Eneru”




“On the Front Line of Rescuing Love”



To save her own skin, Nami convinces Eneru to take her with him. They leave for the golden ship, leaving the defeated combatants to their fate. After Luffy escapes from the giant snake, and learns what Eneru has done to his crew, he goes to meet Skypiea’s god in battle. Although initially confident that he can beat Luffy, Eneru soon finds that he is no match for the Straw Hat captain: Luffy’s rubber body makes him immune to all of Eneru’s lighting attacks. Rather than fight, Eneru traps Luffy in a prison of gold and throws him overboard, expecting the gold’s weight to keep him away. Eneru sets sail and prepares to destroy the island in the sky. He is briefly impeded in his efforts by the remaining Straw Hats, Usopp and Sanji, giving the inhabitants of Angel Island, who have learned of Eneru’s plans, time to evacuate.

My Thoughts:

Muuuuuch better. All of the cannon fodder have been expended so now we get Kami Eneru fighting against whoever opposes him. Which comes down to the Straw Hat Pirates. Eneru and Luffy have a tussle and beat the snot out of each other with the balance of the fight being like a teeter totter, first one then the other is winning. Eneru wipes the deck with the rest of the Straw Hats.

Eneru’s plan to destroy the sky island like he did his own sky island doesn’t make any rational sense. I get that he wants to leave and go be powerful down on the world beneath, but why destroy everything? Because he’s a psycho bitch, that’s why. He’s the very definition of power run amuck. Whoever his mother was did a terrible job. And his father? Should have spanked him. But that’s neither here nor there. The point is that Eneru is very powerful and has had no check upon his power to this point.

The volume ends with the plan to destroy the island entering its final phase. While I know that Luffy and Crew are going to defeat Eneru, part of me hopes that he gets away mostly unscathed just so he can run into some other more powerful Pirate Lord and REALLY get his ass handed to him. Eneru needs to die and he needs to die painfully and gruesomely.

I actually want to read the next volume now. Which was not the case after the last couple and that is a really nice change.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

  1. Hi again,

    yes, Eneru is really a psycho (even though he is not the only one and not nearly the worst psycho in this series). His mind is maybe pretty simple: “I am god. I can destroy the sky island. I want to destroy the sky island. I will destroy the sky island.”
    However, I am also your opinion that he needs to suffer. Thinking of that, I have a one or two characters in mind who would be perfect for that job ^^

    I don’t know your definition of “mostly unscathed” but you might have noticed that enemies usually don’t die in this series. At least not through our main characters. So… there is at least the chance that he will meet a Pirate Lord someday.

    1. I am thinking when I get to the end of this Skypeia arc that I’ll either take a break from manga or start some other series until the new years. Oda’s style of making things impossible to figure out what I’m actually looking at is starting to wear on me.
