    Luffy wouldnt do a much better job? So basically you are saying that Akainu would easily brush off an attack from Luffy the same way he did the attacks he got in the War? Yea.. I refuse to believe a special Luffy Haki imbued attack like Grizzly Magnum is weaker than a standard Haki kick and haki slash from Vista and Marco, as you are implying. I highly disagree with that statement you made.

    Also Akainu didnt leave those squirmishes "uninjured" as you stated, he actually drew blood, but the thing with Akainu is that he is SUPER fricken resilient, ala earthquake WB punch to the gut yet still fricken able to move. Akainu had the rage of a volcano in him during the war, not saying WB and his crew didn't but its obvious that it was that fervent anger and hatred for pirates, and the prospect of killing the world's most influential pirates, that made Akainu's resolve even more deadly. Luffy on the other hand, is a whole nother rage monster in his own right.

    On the subject of Haki, with the introduction of Vergo and his reknown abilities in Haki it seems to me that there's standard armaments Haki, that regular badasses could use as we've seen, and a stronger version/way of using haki, that takes the form of the vulcanized body part doing the attack. Maybe everyone we've seen used haki can do it... or maybe they cannot and it required extra/special training to vulcanize one's body. If that's the case then Luffy's Haki skills are special and should earn him a leg up in battle against a regular armament haki user like say... Sentoumaru. No clue, hope its a possibility though.

    P.S. Did big Mama's crew members at the demonstration mention a new entity called "The League" and did they unknowingly assume the people causing the disturbance at Punk Hazard, ala Luffy and crew, to be members of said entity? Hmm. things are getting interesting.

    I guess Luffy is now able to protect the crew from an Admiral, but not able to defeat them. Also with Vegapunk and with Akainu in charge we are not sure how much stronger the marine top brass have become over the two years.

    P.S. More important, what will happen if Brook asks this lady to show her panties?!!!

    He wouldn't be able to protect them, you guys overestimate Luffy. I normally would too, but Narutoforums changed me xD He'd probably last some minutes and get downed.

    The League was a mistranslation, he meant the Luffy-Law alliance. Try reading the mangaruler version when it comes out, it's pretty much the most accurate translation out there.

    Of course you're right and a normal kick isn't the same like the Grizzly Magnum, but Luffy is more or less on the level the WB Commanders (or at least some of the intermediate ones) were 2 years ago (unless you believe he's already Vista/Jozu level....ah damn, I really don't like using tiers in such discussions xD. Although I don't even know if all of them had Haki or only Jozu, Vista & Marco...don't remember that last panel right anymore...), so they would also have had some "finisher" moves - but I doubt even that would have helped against Akainu. He's just that much over Luffy in all base stats, Haki & destructive power (not to mention experience!).

    *nosebleed* told you guys, Hentai is coming, very soon ^^

    On serious note, did you guys think that baby 5 really mean it literally when say that joker smitheren a whole city?, the way he fight croc before, he's not the ones with imba power like WB / BB / aikanu / Kizaru or other, but could it be?

    And (funny as it is), can somebody explain why General Franky decide to attack out of blue?, could it be he have some sort of detecting haki,too? ^^

    Nah, he could have recognized Doflamingo's flag on Buffalo's teeth or he could just have decided they're enemies. He doesn't have any Haki yet...

    I say we can't really tell how will the Straw Hats fare against a stronger force. If we compare timeskips, SH fought against Crocodile (who has no crew) and Moria (who didn't have his original crew and had already been defeated by Kaido). Now we are seeing that none of the SH had to put any effort in this fight. Franky is doing whatever, Zoro just intimidated Monet. So i think they can go against a Shichibukai's crew, without it being that one sided for the Shichi.

    We haven't seen Luffy fight seriously against anyone, or anyone in the crew fight seriously. So until we see a serious fight, we cannot tell how well they would go against an Admiral.

    So Barrock Works wasn't Croc's crew?

    The problem is, we don't really know on what level Doflamingo is, but knowing the SHs, I do think they'd be able to take him and his crew, especially if they stick to Law (& his crew, at least some of them seem to be alive because of the colorspread!). I don't know if they'd be able to do it just know, but when they will face him, they'll be ready.
    It only depends on Caesar being taken away or not if they're going to fight Dofla or Big Mom first... whatever happens, it's going to be an epic saga, guys!!! (it is already )

    Oh, Baroque Works, I wouldn't really call it his crew(they were mostly fodder), but you are right. I would only call 1, 2, 4 and the ladies (Don't remember the actual numbers or names) part of the crew at that time. They were the only ones he revealed whom he was in the Alabasta Arc from the 100+ they were and he only did it on his last mission with them. So it's hard to say, part of the crew, and easier to be: "Croc's scrubsnubs".
