because he gets stronger through it ... and i saw someone writing on Arlongpark that there is a way how to make it undone... and if not i think oda will just find a way haha
I think Luffy is going to show us his real strenght and a wonderful technique that he'll use to send Blueno flying to somewhere far far away.
yup i am sure he will find away to de- valcanies it .. even though in real life i dont tihnk its possible ...with this new technique wouldn't his body be less flexible and to hard.. that means he can't stretch that much ....
Based on what I can tell, Luffy already exhibited several properties of vulcanized rubber before this whole "2nd gear" thing.
What I wonder, is why hasn't Luffy thought to utilize the bouncy aspect of his rubber body in attacks (like maybe bouncing all around an area sort of like Bellamy did).
i think luffy is gonna grow long yellow hair and shoot lasers out of his hand. but thats just me.
I was just reading the same raw chapter. The scans were so bad quality it was hard to read... But the parts I could understand:
Luffy: I closed it
Luffy: The door on my face
Bruno: Of course
Bruno: A door is something that can be closed
Bruno: You did well dodging my <<can't read, it's one of his technique names>>
Luffy: Well uhh, I don't really understand.
Bruno: That's unfortunate
Then we have a lot of fighting and talking continues on pg 16...
Bruno: He's avoiding my attacks completely. He even changed the path of "Rankyaku"
(i guessed the word "attacks" there, since the kanji is just too smudged)
Bruno: What an unbelievable natural body power he has...
Luffy: (grin) It's no good.
Luffy: Like this I'm just...
Luffy: No good.
Luffy: ...Back when I lost to Aokiji
Luffy: I thought about this thing...
Luffy: If there are going to be guys this strong in the seas up ahead,
Luffy: I have to get stronger, or I can't keep on protecting my nakama
Luffy: And I have become stronger
Luffy: Because I have nakama that I want to be with
Luffy: If I don't become stronger than everyone else,
Luffy: They all are going to get bloodied up
(I'm not sure at all about this part...)
Bruno: Then, what are you going to do?
(The lower side of the scans is so smudged up I can only read a word here and there -- Luffy's continuing his reasoning from above)
Bruno: What is he doing? ...There's something coming from inside his body
Luffy: (sfx) Pshhh Pshhh Drip Drip
Luffy: You can't touch me anymore
Luffy: My technique is to everyone... <something something> evolving.
(Sorry, that one is just too smudged up for me to read)
I really wish there was a high quality version of this. ;__;
I think it's just that Luffy's finally learning how to use his devil fruit properly in combat. The two CP9 members who just ate their fruit are happy if they can just see some kind of effect, so far they hadn't even felt anything.

If you think back on what Crocodile said about training your devil fruit power, I think this is exactly what he was talking about.
So in conclusion, all devil fruits probably have this kind of "super stance" that can be attained through enough training... Or then not, I don't know!
