I haven't finished reading the official version of the novel yet.
Last year I read a full english translation that someone made on fanfiction page, and I can say that this official translation is similar. I think this novel is entertaining and is a good material to expand the universe of the manga. For me the novel is canon unless Oda himself denies it.
I think the same as you and I'm glad that the OP staff came up with this novel. I always saw the possibility of this happening remotely and when we heard about this in OP Magazine I was glad. We're even going to have a manga drawn by Boichi, I still don't think so
I liked your avys
What was your name in OJ?
I also think it would be a good idea
I hope to see the Spade Pirates in some Wano flashback (I guess Oda will show us a more complete Ace's flashback sometime in the current manga arc).
And yes, watching that animated fight would be great.
I agree with the anime spin off.
I want to see Deuce too, and also Skull, Miharl and Kotatsu having their scenes. The closest we have is Boichi's manga (unless we have Ace's flashback in Wano before that, like I said above)
And yes, Ace x Isuka is great.
According to the novel, Deuce was one of the crewmates that planning battles within Spade Pirates, along with Miharl and Skull. It's also seen that he could fight bounty hunters. More than an offensive fighter perhaps he is defensive. Now, I don't know what will have happened to him once they joined Whitebeard.
About Isuka, I agree, she is great. She is a woman of character, persistent, and also has her own sense of justice. She knew how to discern that Ace and the Spade Pirates weren't bad people. So later she wanted to be nice to him. I also wonder if she was in MF or not. At some point I came to think that perhaps she died or perhaps retired from the marines after what happened in Shaboady. But I wish he had met Ace at least once more. Could it have been in Impel Down?
I hope to see Isuka in the manga sometime, even if it's a small appearance or maybe a coverstory.
Look, more Ace x Isuka pics
