Nico Robin: You Won’t Like it When She’s Angry.
One Piece Chapter 1005 Review/Recap
You know that famous line from The Incredible Hulk TV series starring Bill Bixby? “Don’t make me angry. You won’t like me when I’m angry.” That line can be applied to anyone who’s mad. And if there’s one thing that will make the Straw Pirates mad, it’s messing with their friends and crewmates. Case in point: Nico Robin’s going to demolish the spider-lady who captured Sanji. This should be fun.
Having been captured by Black Maria, Sanji finds himself completely at the Tobi Roppo spider-woman’s mercy. As a result, she starts to brutalize him, with him refusing to even resist. The Beast Pirate member demands that he call for Nico Robin so she can capture her. And despite everyone believing otherwise, he promptly calls for her help.
Even though everyone knows its an obvious trap, Robin doesn’t hesitate to come to her friend’s rescue. And thanks to her Devil Fruit powers (and the aid of Brook), they promptly manage to free Sanji. The chef then hightails it, leaving his crewmates to settle things.
As this is going on, the Beast Pirates are closing in on Yamato, Momo, and Shinobu’s group. Out of options, the trio makes a break for it while trying to avoid Kaido’s cyborg surveillance system.
So, how long are you guys betting Black Maria will last against Robin and Brook?
You know, some people would consider Sanji’s willingness to call Robin for help to be an act of cowardice. But we One Piece fans know better. It’s a show of how much they trust each other to watch their backs. Think about it: Sanji’s not an idiot. He wouldn’t call for Robin unless he knew that she could win. And with Brook able to freeze Maria’s spider-webs, it’s pretty much a done-deal.
This wasn’t the most exciting or interesting of chapters, in my opinion. But we can’t focus entirely on the big, epic fight between the Supernovas and the Yonko. This is a full-scale war with dozens of people in play; naturally, we have to focus on the Alliance’s efforts to defeat the enemy officers. If they didn’t, then they’re going to eventually lose the war.
So, how many chapters do you guys think it will take Robin and Brook to beat Black Maria?

I was hoping to see Robin get in a fight this arc. And I like how she’s own the “Demon Child” moniker. Something tells me that Black Maria is in for a really bad time!
