Volume 73 is titled "Operation Dressrosa SOP".
Cover and Volume Illustration[edit | edit source]
The colored cover has a honey-colored background, and the author's name is written in pansy purple.
On the front, starting from the top, the order of featured characters begin with Luffy once again under his "Lucy" disguise, being trapped by the bars of the Corrida Colosseum. It continues with Donquixote Doflamingo and Trafalgar Law attacking each other, a crying Riku Doldo III as he appeared 10 years ago, and Tony Tony Chopper, Caesar Clown, Sanji, Momonosuke, Nami and Brook at the bottom.
Sanji is used for the spine, and the skull on the spine is colored pinkish-purple. The title logo colorscheme uses the colors purple (fading from white), red, and dark purple.
For the volume illustration on page 3, Luffy has a confident grin with his right fist towards him and his left fist outward towards the reader.
