Two weeks have passed, and Luffy is recovering.
Iva and co head to Kamabakka.
Flashback of 10 years ago inserted, and Dadan is shown.
Carly Dadan. Probably female.
Hancock: Warriors, take Luffy to the Castle’s hospital.
Warrior A: Mistress Hancock, what’s the emergency? Is Luffy okay?
Hancock: Luffy went to Impel Down to save his brother Ace, you know this…The problem occurred afterwards. After saving Ace from capture, Luffy joined forces in the battle agains the Marine HQ, where one of the Marine Generals Akainu murdered Ace in front of his eyes. Ever since, he’s had a mental breakdown…
Hancock: Medics, prepare for surgery.
Warrior B: Snake Princess.
Warrior B: A middleman…j-just called in through the snailphone

Apparently confirmed. Discuss,
Ever since, he’s had a mental breakdown
This is going to get even more heartbreaking, isn't it?
Probably. I hope Luffy's mood won't suffer too much.
WHO THE SHIT ARE YOU
Also is Carly Dadan in Japanese naming convention? Because if Carly is his last name that doesn't prove much.
Angsty Avenger Luffy here we come!
I imagine Luffy angsts like Aang. Half an episode later he's back to normal.
DADAN; ONE OF THE GREATEST MYSTERIES IN ONE PIECE
Guys, Luffy's gonna get all angsty avenger and get a little darker for a bit, then when Zoro finally shows back up he and Luffy are gonna fight and when that fight finishes Luffy will be snapped back into his senses.
Or he might just stop caring.
While I don't think that that's exactly what'll snap Luffy out of this, I agree. Luffy really hasn't dealt with major grief in his life yet, and from what we've understood, he's gonna take this pretty hard.
Not that I blame the guy, he traveled over three islands in a matter of days, fought through an impenatrable prison, nearly died and only survived by giving up ten years of his life, fought all the way to the battle, got Ace off the platform, and it return had Ace die in his arms, making all that sacrifice basically amount to nothing. Hell, that's enough to make most men give up on life itself, of course Luffy's gonna be affected severely.
But my guess is it's gonna be some events in Fishman Island that put him fully back in his stride. Basically get him through the grief and realize that the world still has guys like Eneru and Crocodile and Wapol and Spandam, still ruining life for people all over the world, and they need someone to put them in their rightful place, because nobody else in this crazy world of Blues and Lines and Belts and Pandamen seems to want to actively stand up and go, "No, this stops NOW."
The world needs men like Luffy, and once Luffy remembers that, I can guarantee you the grieving is gonna end VERY quickly, and we are gonna see a MUCH stronger Luffy for it. I'm not saying that the playful silly Luffy is gonna go away now for some Simone-esque character, but he's gonna be taking his responsibilities much more thoroughly.
Almost all of the crew (save Chopper and Robin) have had their arcs where they've set aside their past and their doubts, and embraced the new life of a Strawhat fully, and the responsibilities that come with it. Now it's the Captain's turn.
Nah. The Captain has a better ring.
OH GOD HAHAHA poor Luffy.
Why hasn't anyone commented on Dadan yet? Holy shit. And in the intro box it says something about her being Ace and Luffy's ___
Can't read it but it doesn't look like mother.
Wait... could Dadan be Big Mama?
Nanna or Nanny most likely.
Mentor? Teacher? Trainer?
is it just me or does the guy to the left of Dadan with the mustache and beard look really familiar?
Nevermind it is apparently adoptive parent according to mangahelpers
HAHAHAHAHA he's so full of child rage.
That- that little guy... jesus, he's terrifying.
i... I have to see the inevitable dadan luffy/ace ss 34... i really don't want to... but I must.
Sick fucks, get to drawing!
