One Piece Manga 925: Spoilers and Release Date First of all, I'm surprised that it did not take long for Luffy to pick a fight with Kaido. I don't blame Luffy for trying, but he should know that he can not defeat the final boss so early. At least it was enjoyable watching Luffy beat the snot out of Kaido's men before this happened. I was hoping that Law would retrieve Luffy, but Hawkins got in the way and Luffy is thrown into a prison again. The good news is that Law got away and Kin'emon's plan isn't entirely ruined yet. Once again, Luffy's luck played a role. Kaido could have killed Luffy right there, but he decided that Luffy is worth keeping around and I'm sure we can all expect that he's going to regret it later. I'm certain that Luffy's experiences inside Udon prison is going to fuel the fire inside him. I wonder what Big Mom is going to do if she heard about this. As for Luffy's current predicament, I predict that he and Kid will eventually start an uprising. I'm also guessing that one of the allies Kin'emon was searching for is there as well. I hope that Luffy won't think about tearing off some of his limbs again. In any case, Luffy's recklessness gave his friends more things to worry about. Besides planning for the final battle, they have to plan a rescue operation as well and who knows what Zoro is going to do. If Luffy can escape with help from inside the prison, then that would be great. Also, if Luffy ends up gaining more allies for the final battle, then it might be worth all the trouble. Things do happen for a reason after all.

Olympics chief rules out violent e-sports

Thomas Bach, the president of the International Olympic Committee, has voiced his opposition to including violent e-sports among the sports contested at the Olympic Games. Speaking to the AP on the occasion of the 2018 Asian Games, where demonstration e-sports tournaments were held, Bach said that “We cannot have in the Olympic program a game which is promoting violence or discrimination ... They, from our point of view, are contradictory to the Olympic values and cannot therefore be accepted.”


Bach is himself a former Olympic fencing champion, and he’s surely aware that boxing is an Olympic sport too, but he thinks combat sports are different. Accepting that every combat sports has its root in real fighting among people, he argues that “sport is the civilized expression about this.” Whereas games that involve “killing somebody” are apparently beyond the pale. An uncharitable reading of his words might be that boxing and fencing are familiar and therefore acceptable, whereas games are played out of a black box (tastefully decorated with LED lights, of course) and not something he himself has ever partaken in.
"It’s far from obvious that e-sports fans even care about the Olympics"

Without Bach specifying which e-sports he classifies in his “killer games” category, it’s hard to offer a counterargument. Though it’s still worth noting that the most popular multiplayer competitive games have highly stylized violence that’s usually inflicted by and to mythical creatures. In Valve’s Dota 2, for example, you can be Zeus and smite an undead zombie with a skill called Thundergod’s Wrath. Or you can be a Crystal Maiden and summon a snowstorm around you that brings down a hail of ice shards upon your enemies. These acts of hostile manipulation of the elements can hardly be said to be encouraging people to punch each other in the face. Boxing, on the other hand, can.

In any case, the established e-sports already have thriving professional leagues, and it’s far from obvious that many of their fans even care about inclusion in the Olympics. It would be a final mark of acknowledgement that these digital competitive endeavors are indeed sports, but for a majority of fans, it’s probably not necessary.
