@Mr. 0, MangaPlus is out today, the app prevents you from taking screenshots, but the official translation seems like it supports what I said above. People are making a nothingburger and will disappoint themselves in 2 weeks.I think people are taking it far too literally. The villagers were still crying for Yasuie while they're laughing, so it isn't like they don't have any more emotions, it's more like they're forced to suppress them and act like they're having fun because of Orochi's tyranny.
I think it's more likely that she's referring to how SMILEs established Kaido and Orochi's military domination of Wano for over 2 decades, which pretty much killed all their attempts at rebellion. In that sense, the artificial fruits are the primary reason that they have been forced to watch their country, their natural habitat and their lives go to shit for over 20 years now.
The fact that they're named that way is kind of a metaphor for the fake smiles their presence produced, it's all they can muster to get through the day and survive under this brutal regime.
Since I kept reading his voice in a rendition of a mean and churlish version of Zeff, I hope that's how the English dub portrays him.Today is Vinsmoke Judge's birthday1
I loved it when he cried like a little bitch at the Tea Party.
Well, I did say wording is important. Those damn japs are masters at getting us all hyped up.@Mr. 0, MangaPlus is out today, the app prevents you from taking screenshots, but the official translation seems like it supports what I said above.

The lines (bolding or underlining is mine for emphasis):
Zoro: What's wrong with--‽
Hiyori: No!! They're all crying!! The People of Ebisu who always laugh.. can't actually show when they're sad or suffering!! They've been robbed of every expression but smiles, laughing is all they can do anymore!! And it's all.. because of Kaido and Orochi.. It's because of those things they brought here.. The "SMILE" fruits!!!
I was already worried about what they would do to create distance with the manga after Whole Cake Island (because they can't place a filler arc there like they used to do), but I at least expected meaningful flashbacks, not this drivel. Hell, make some complete recap episodes and you'd be golden! The recuts I linked earlier do make things far, far better imo.@neural @TrippinKahlua and you guys thought the anime would finally be great again
You didn't get your fill of Rayleigh flashbacks during Luffy vs Katakuri?Rayleigh is probably in my top 10 OP characters, really digging the small flashbacks we're getting now, hope we get more.
How it turned out he wasn't a Charlotte Son, I will never know.Today is Tamago/Hiyoko/Niwatori's birthday, bon!
Thats a girl?
yeah make sure your not misgendering you twirling shit lord
@TrippinKahlua and @Mr. 0, you guys are thinking of Orlumbus (captain of the Yonta Maria fleet).The Wiki says girl, but pixiv dictionary says guy. I'm confused now.
we're not thinking of orlumbus, I'm pointing out that (as far as I know, anyway) it was never established if columbus was a boy or girl@TrippinKahlua and @Mr. 0, you guys are thinking of Orlumbus (captain of the Yonta Maria fleet).
The birthday that @Trombonista posted belongs to Columbus, who is a female member of Orlumbus's crew. She appeared in the Strawhat Grand Fleet cover story if you guys recall.
Columbus's Wikia page is here:
Columbus is a member of the Yonta Maria Grand Fleet. Columbus is a short, young-looking girl with long curly hair. She wears a typical sailor's buttoned jacket with a bowtie, a belt that goes across her chest, and light leggings. She also wears dark boots and a vertically striped bicorne hat...onepiece.fandom.com
(Yes the naming is confusing as fuck, I didn't realize it until trombonista posted her reply).
I feel like Mr. 13 and Miss Friday were a huge missed opportunity to introduce the minks and/or foreshadow the Zoan-type Devil Fruits (kind of like a bait-and-switch thing that would have made us go "huh" when looking back).Who?
The otter? Oh well, it really was a break this week.... time for another six days of being told whose birthday it is...
At least Im debuts this weekend.
