Just for refrence, here is the SBS where Oda mentioned what would happen when Vegapunk enters the story:

"D: Excuse me!! May I pose a serious question to the typically-vulgar SBS?? In Volume 46, Usopp said that the same power doesn't exist twice. But this doesn't make sense with what you said in the Volume 45 SBS... If the Gomu Gomu no Mi was in a book of fruits, then Luffy HAD to have eaten at least the SECOND known example of the fruit! Now, most beautiful and intelligent Ei-chan, explain it all! ✩ P.N. Takafi

O: Very sharp of you. But I'm cool. I haven't made any mistakes. As a hint, let me rephrase what Usopp is saying. "The same powers don't exist twice AT THE SAME TIME". How's that? For more detail, you'll just have to wait for a certain professor to make his appearance in the story, and explain exactly what the Devil Fruits REALLY are... Eventually."

Yeah, there's so much tied to Vegapunk that it's almost surreal that it's finally time to get those questions answered

We may be about to get like 30% of the mysteries in the entire story explained in the next few chapters

If I'm not wrong, I think in a more recent interview Oda has stated that he has changed his mind on making a mecha manga after One Piece, because he already fulfilled his desire of drawing mechs by including them in One Piece lol.

Dude, literally the same feelings. Thought Franky was a madlad and busted out a secret underwater General/Shogun Franky he’d been working on (the hands are crazy similar), but then the scale next to the shark that made me go “…wait”.

Still, awesome chapter like you said.

It just occurred to me that with not only Dr. Vegapunk but Jewelry Bonney present, we are finally going to have the mysterious tale of Bartholomew Kuma unraveled. He’s been a pivotal, then haunting figure in the story since before Marineford.

FUCK ELBAF I'M SO FUCKING EXCITED FOR EGGHEAD

This just has ALL the makings of a classic OP arc. Rather than something built up we just get completely blindsided by being thrown into a brand new location we didn't imagine. The future vibes are going to be nothing like anything we've experienced yet in OP. And such a classic setup of the rest of the crew in a tricky situation, while Luffy is separated from everyone else in a small group. A group that'll let us explore the brand new crew member, a supernova we haven't seen much of yet, and Chopper who's badly needed some focus. Plus, this arc is gonna be fantastic for Franky! It just feels so much like classic OP!

Yea i can't really see how she could be a child.

Her mannerism is definitely older/more nuanced than that of a child she can transform into, even for the OP universe and Oda's style of creating character it's not consistent enough.

But the idea of her actually being old is probably not off the table, even though i personally don't think so.

Personally I actually am behind the idea of her being old because a) Her old lady form was recognized as "Dowager Queen Connie of the Sorbet Kingdom" and b) She clearly has an association with Kuma who is also from Sorbet, so I think Connie is her real form. She could also just be Connie's daughter who looks like her when aged up or something though

Place your bets (Or vote here) :

  • It's an Android.

  • It's controlled remotely by the real Vegapunk.

  • Vegapunk used his genius to create a new body for himself, in this case a cute girl.

  • Vegapunk really is a girl.

  • The Vegapunk the marine know about is just a robot controlled by the real one (in this case the girl)

  • Something else

That panel of the shark underwater was way scarier than it needed to be. Especially with how goofy it was later in the chapter. God I love this manga.

There are 3 solutions to this new twist

  1. Vegapunk really is a woman, no catches

  2. Vegapunk is a family name, this is a relative

  3. Vegapunk switched bodies to avoid death

Anyway, its time for me to simp

It can also be a remotely controlled android or something similar. Notice the Antenna on her left ear.

But still, I would like for Vegapunk to be a girl.

Also very sure there'll be a new onslaught of R34 art after this chapter too lol

As soon as I saw her I was like, omfg it's vegapunk!. Then when I saw punk 02 I was like naw it's probably an assistant/second in command. And then I read "they like to call me their scientific genius".

That's one of the quickest non fighting induced roller-coaster one piece has thrown me on in along time.

I CAN NOT BELIEVE THAT WE FINALLY MET THE VEGA FUCKING PUNK. Over more than a decade only hearing about "him" and then SHE raised directly from a giant mecha. Epic as hell! I dont like when the arcs starts always with Luffy getting isolated from the others for half of it, but we have really two good plots (Vegapunk/Bonney) on each side this time at least.

A pleasant surprise, but I think the version we saw of Vegapunk in this chapter is an Avatar because the character is supposed to be old if they worked with Queen and Judge in MADS.

And there's the label on her shirt that says Punk 02, insinuating it's a model created by Vega.

So so exciting.

Also, Oda decided to unleash Waifus this week....what a legend!!😭😭😭😭💙

Only in One Piece you can shift the story from a furry tribe at the back of a giant elephant, to a weird mafia family drama in a food themed Alice in Wonderland musical romance island, to an old time japanese Kabuki play in a land of samurai with time travel and dinosaurs, to a futuristic jungle winter island with mechas.

The Vegapunk 02 for nakama club is now accepting members. Message me for the application form. As members, we are going to hype her to the moon, and will be greatly disappointed when it’s finally revealed she won’t join. We will then claim this as the worst arc ever.

Qverlord37

looking back at Vegapunk's own history, I'm inclined to lean on the two vegapunks theory.

first off I don't think 02 here is a remote control cyborg, if Vegapunk can remote control thing, wouldn't it be more efficient to remote control the giant mecha instead of controlling a clone to control the giant robot?

Vegapunk is also described to have a sense of ethic, as that was what made him split with Ceasar Clown, their opinion on using children for experiment. He also have a sense of honor, as he grant Kuma one final request before fully converting him into a machine.

from our initial interaction with 02, she shown us that she created the shark to attack ship so that she can salvage them. She also designed the shark to have zero no sense of desires, but failed.

that's bit excessive for someone who should have no problem in funding from the government, plus wiping out a creature's sense of self flies in the face of ethic that Vegapunk supposedly have.

On top of that if Vegapunk have a hard stance against using children for experiment, it doesn't make sense why he would create child soldier seraphim.

I truly think that we have a case of 2 Vegapunks here. Dr. Vegapunk the old man and his Daughter/Granddaughter Dr. Vegapunk II (hence the punk 02).

I think Vegapunk got replaced during the timeskip by the world government for his refusal to run the seraphim project and his collusion with Bartholomew Kuma for programing Kuma to defy the WG. His daughter work in his stead now, taking on the title of Dr. Vegapunk, and her saying "despite my mediocrity" is a sign that she knows that she can't fill the shoe of her father/grandfather.

I also am curious about Vegaounk's reaction to Sunny and it's durability.

Also Bonney probably has questions for Vegapunk regarding Kuma.

Gonna be a lore heavy/ship improvement arc,it looks like. Lot's of focus on the Sunny this chapter!
