Genji monogatari is a tale about a son of an emperor and a beautiful but low-ranking concubine. For political reasons, the emperor removes Genji from the line of successors and he is considered to be a commoner only. His mother then dies and Genji doesn't take his mother's death well. He tries to "fill this void" by meeting and trying to fall in love with other women. His life is...well, pretty much about women and women. He falls in love with his stepmother and later even has a son with her. He takes a liking to a young girl named Murasaki, who is by the way his stepmother's niece and later also marries her. Before that, he was married to another girl, named Aoi. He and Aoi were on bad terms but they reconcile, though soon after she gives birth to a son, she dies.
... There is more to a story but..well, it's quite complicated from here on out.
What does it have to do with Sanji though? First of all, the theme of "falling in love with other women" is very strong in this one. Not only that, but Genji also had an arranged marriage with Aoi, the same like how Sanji has an arranged marriage with Purrin.
Since Sanji was not wanted so much...like, he was not so easily recognized... I feel like he isn't 100% pure blood high rank, so he might be like Genji, whose mom died young and since that time, he was meeting other women to ease the pain inside him.
This is pretty much all about the theory I found about the similarity between Genji and Sanji. I think it is very possible there is some kind of story about Sanji's mother, but we won't know for sure until we see more in the upcoming chapters. After all, Oda said 2016 will be Sanji's year, so there is a lot in store for us ^^
Ping ping ping! The front cover has Nami-san! As always, she has a beautiful wanted poster. How does this girl even do it? Geez!
Caesar is also helping out with medicine despite his apparent reluctance. Also, a great reply from him when a mink called him. Caedar? Seriously? XD it reminds me of a type of cheese that is called "Cheddar".
Now, some of you might not believe the SH couldn't kick Capone's butt with the help of Caesar or something.
First of all, both sides did not want to cause a big scene. They didn't want to drag minks into their business and make a bigger mess on Zou than there already is. And the SH didn't know Capone could store up men in his body. No wonder they couldn't fight back once they were outnumbered.
Why didn't Caesar do something with his gas then? Easy answer. They threatened to kill him with Seastone bullets, which I don't think are like the usual bullets and can in fact go through Logia's body or something. It's just like threatening a normal civilian with a gun.
Now, not to jump into conclusions. We are still unsure what that "Vinsmock" family is. However, it is pretty clear that it must have some influence,because Sanji's wanted poster changed from Wanted: "Dead ot Alive" to "Only Alive". They are probably somehow tied with the World Government, or at least have influence on them.
It's a bit surprising they weren't able to recognize Sanji from his former wanted poster... like, I don't think many characters out there bear "Sanji" name, have blond hair and swirly brows. It makes me wonder whether that Vinsmock family really wants him back, or just.. wants to use him for their own good. I just feel like Sanji ran from them and they kinda didn't care about it anyway.
Here is another theory: http://www.onepiecegold.com/vinsmock-family/15/
I think the author jumped into conclusions about Sanji's supposed brothers quickly, but otherwise... some points are possible to happen/be real. Well, it's just a theory anyway xD
So, what do you think about the chapter - and Sanji's marriage arrangment in general? Pretty shocking, right?
