One Piece Chapter 1061 Review/Recap
Dr. Vegapunk, the Leonardo Da Vinci of One Piece. The one responsible for creating the best weapons that the World Government has, and an unparalleled genius. For years, fans of One Piece have waited for the day when we could meet this mad genius for ourselves. Now, the wait is over. WE GOT DR. VEGAPUNK!!!!! Except Vegapunk’s not what we thought they’d be.
At the Marine G-14 Base, Tashigi’s watching over the kids from Punk Hazard, giving them medicine to return them to normal. However, the base is being harassed by Helemeppo and someone named Hibari, who are begging for help to save Koby from Blackbeard. Sadly, the Marine in charge of the base refuses to attack Blackbeard’s fortress island.
Meanwhile, after rescuing Bonney, the Straw Hats come under attack…from this.
Then this happens!
Thankfully, Jinbei saves Luffy, Chopper, and Bonney from drowning and gets them to dry land. As the four dries off, Bonney explains that her crew got captured by that giant metal shark. That’s not the worst part, though. The worst part is that the island they’re on, Egghead, is home to Dr. Vegapunk’s lab.
Elsewhere, the Sunny and other Straw Hats are rescued by the giant robot. As Franky and Usopp freak out over it, the pilot comes out, lamenting her failure to keep the shark under control. She then explains that she didn’t save them; she captured them because she works for the World Government. Who is this woman? According to her, she’s Dr. Vegapunk!
How?!? WHY? I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS!
Firstly, I have questions regarding Vegapunk. Was Vegapunk always a woman, or did they (I will be using non-binary pronouns for now) somehow change bodies? Maybe Vegapunk created a clone of themself and transferred their mind into it. Either that or they got some secret to looking young. Also, I won’t lie: Vegapunk looks hot.
Secondly, this could be the moment when Oda reveals the answers to some of the biggest questions in One Piece. Vegapunk is the smartest person in the world, said to have done extensive research in genetics, cloning, and most importantly, the Devil Fruits. If the Straw Hats meet Vegapunk, they could learn the secret’s behind the Devil Fruits. Vegapunk has to know where they come from and how they work! Or, if Franky can talk them into not being their enemy, they could show them how to upgrade the Sunny. Maybe even make the Sunny a Transformer! So many cool things could happen; I’m giddy with excitement!!
Vegapunk aside, I am curious about why Bonney has business with the Doctor. More importantly, there’s what happened to Koby. If he’s been taken to Blackbeard’s base, and Luffy were to find out, we know what would happen next. Luffy will almost certainly go to war against Blackbeard. The clash between the two is inevitable, but the Straw Hats won’t be able to win alone. They would need to call on every friend and ally they’ve made to take down Blackbeard.
Regardless of my feelings (and I am very emotionally confused about Vegapunk), we have to wait two weeks for it. I can wait, though, as I need to come to terms with Vegapunk’s apparent hotness.
I Give “Egghead, Island of the Future” a 4/5
