ANDThis Eagghead arc is surprising us all. Nobody imagined that the next step of One Piece was going to Future Island and meeting Dr. Vegapunk, much less anything to do with Bartholomew Kuma and Jewelry Bonney.
With everything that has been revealed in the manga, the story of the ex-revolutionary, ex-king of Sorbet, ex-slave and ex-pirate It remains very diffuse and intermingled with other events. I mean, now we know everything from when Kuma was born until Luffy’s journey began but When was Kuma acting and when was he already a robot? We are going to solve that question with this complete summary of the life (and possible death) of the character of the year in One Piece.
