    but then why does he do that now ??? vulcanisation is a one time process and so if he discovered it he shouldn't have to redo it anymore .... ????

    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.

    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 was just reading the same raw chapter. The scans were so bad quality it was hard to read... But the parts I could understand:

    pg 12

    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.

    Bruno: !?

    Luffy: Like this I'm just...
    Luffy: No good.

    Bruno: !?

    pg 17

    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)

    pg 18

    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
    Bruno: What!?
    Luffy: My technique is to everyone... <something something> evolving.

    (Sorry, that one is just too smudged up for me to read)

    Luffy: Second
    Luffy: Gear

    I really wish there was a high quality version of this. ;__;

    yeah... that's just you

    and PLEASE, STOP saying that OP is becoming DBZ-like only because there are level up and co....
    OP will still be funny and have a great storyline, so i really don't care about this kind of arguments
    AND i don't see why the author shouldn't use that if it goes well into the spirit of the manga (which is a shonen !) only because DBZ used it before :P

    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.

    I'm thinking abilities like Smoker's smoke and Crocodile's sand both were simple attacks in the start, like shoot a little smoke/sand out and perhaps create their element from nowhere... It was only through a lot of training that they finally learned how their whole body can become elemental and how they can build their bodies in different places etc... 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!
