    So this O-Tama wants to be a Kunoichi, huh? That should lead to something interesting. It's somewhat convenient that Luffy found her but then again...ending up near her place when going to Wano is probably common for people who don't know what they're in for. Either way, it looks like Luffy has a promise to fulfill.


    And from what I figure...when faced with Kaidpu, Apoo and Hawkins probably just knew when to fold 'em and work their way into his ranks, while Kid refused...and got the shit kicked put of him for his trouble. No idea where Killer stands in all this.

    Hawkins looks like he's already got a plan to get out of Kaidou's service. Wonder what his title of, the Headliner means thpugh...some sort of Kabuki thing maybe?

    Feudalism predates the establishment of a political landscape that allows for a right/left divide but, by modern standards, it would fall on the right as it is an autocratic ruling system with a hyper wealthy elite exploiting the working class and is usual reinforced through violence.

    My mother is a PhD in history and one thing that really grinds her gears in historical fiction is how being a peasant in medieval times is often shown to be not that bad and kind of quaint and charming when actually it was absolutely horrific and there was essentially zero social mobility to be had.

    Someone from the forums. It's possible they've dropped out simply due to the slowness of the game. I can check the forums.

    There a whole bunch of protests planned in the UK during Trump's visit. ^_^

    I'll be attending the one in London tomorrow. The snap protest against the Muslim ban got something in the region of 28,000 people out on two days notice and we've had months to stew on this one so I expect it'll be much larger. Facebook says the largest single protest should have about 60,000 people but we'll see how it goes.

    Would putting Jack Rakan up against Senator Armstrong make for an amusing (if not necessarily fair) fight?

    I'm so glad that it's finally Hawkins' time to shine. He was my favourite of the Supernovas when they first appeared. And considering how Oda raised my opinion of Bege last arc I have high hopes for Basil in this one.

    I'd guess that Killer resisted Kaidou's demands alongside his captain. So he might be captured or on the run right now.

    O-Tama is cute and determined kid. It'll be interesting to see why she's waiting for Ace and how Luffy will respond to this reveal.

    Jack could just nuke him in the first split second of the match so there wouldn't be much time for trash talk.

    I'm also excited to finally see just what the hell Hawkins' devil fruit does exactly.

    MHA

    Pretty cool ending to the fight, but it might not be over yet...I'm glad we're finally gonna see just what connection, if any, DabI has to Endeavor.

    Yup, it's time for this theory to be answered. I'm betting that the entire MHA fandom is on the edge of their seat.

    And this might just be a solid fail safe from Dabi's end. He got Shigaraki to send out High End (because Shigaraki is a good boss now) at Endeavor. Either Endeavor dies so that society loses another number 1 hero and the faith in the hero system is even more damaged, or Endeavor wins and is brought to a new height in the eyes of the public only for Dabi to show up and reveal Endeavor's abusive behavior to the world. At least that's my theory on what's going on here.

    I'm a bit tentative about Shoto in this arc. Him realising that he cares about his dad, despite everything, is fine. I just hope that he doesn't forgive him too quickly.

    The Nazi Party called themselves the National Socialist Party to obfuscate the fact that they were fascists and because socialism was experiencing a popular boom in the economically decimated Germany post World War I. Hitler was not a socialist, no one with any power in his party was. The Nazi strategy with the economy was to essentially run a war economy, because nothing creates jobs like war, and see how far that got them. There was no socialism employed at any point.

    Fascism is a super /right/ wing political ideology while socialism sits on the medium to far area of the left. They are opposing ideologies.
    What would you call groups such as Antifa then(who Riri and her team remind me of)? Who are so radically alt-left and violent that they are listed as domestic terrorists? People always compare antifa with fascism(in irony, since they are supposed to be anti-fascism), so that is why I labelled the group as such. Admittedly I am not very aware of the history of the term since it's thrown around so much that I haven't really given it too much thought.

    I'm going to give you an out here.

    Are you sure you want to go down this road?

    I promise you it ends with you being shown up for not really understanding what Antifa actually is or how political ideologies function.

    We can if you want but I just want to lead with giving you an out and also highlighting that you may be arguing from a position of not quite understanding the facts.
