I thought for sure this whole site was a goner. Didn't think I'd miss it as much as I actually did.

We can use this thread as a quick recap and reaction/speculation general for chapters 698, 699, 700, and 701. And because ain't getting one this week, either.

Spandam's not a marine, and Vergo pretended to have a strong sense of justice and maturity. But Garp wasn't clever enough to hide that he was letting his grandson go from the superiors, he breaks down walls and whines about building them back up, and he acts on a personal justice just like his grandson. They're extremely alike, with Garp only slightly having more of a head on his shoulders. Dragon's the odd one out in that he actually seems to act like an adult.
Hell, the G-5 Marines are formed explicitly out of troops who have no wit, maturity or good sense of justice. Each one of them is just as bad as any pirate, just happening to be on the side of law and service.
>> No. 31364
Standing next to your adopted grandson and letting him be killed is the biggest difference between Garp and Luffy.
The G-5 example also just helps my claim that people like that would never raise in the ranks. So if Luffy were a Marine, he'd be comparable to the status of G-5.

It's like you're not even paying attention to what you read or the discussions you jump into.

>Basically apologizing for killing the new run before it starts

This'll be a great way to get my friends and other folks who never watched One Piece into it. They'll love how their first experience is plagued with not knowing who any of the main characters are or their powers and I KNOW they'll enjoy later on down the series (if they even manage to watch while in the dark so long) when Crocodile and Hachi and Bon Clay and Buggy all reappear and they're important to the story and reference their past with the crew and they have no fucking clue who they are. Not only characters, but important plot details themselves like Whitebeard's message from Shanks and Luffy meeting what may be the ultimate villain in the fucking series, Blackbeard.

Do you think someone starting here is going to cry when Merry is given funeral? When Robin WANTS TO LIVE or feel the dramacy of losing a long time friend when Usopp wants to leave?

I'm not confident in this. One Piece more than any other shonen is wholly important. It's necessary to consume the entirety for maximum enjoyment and get all the callbacks and feel the intended emotions when things happen that have been alluded to or built up to for hundreds of episodes/chapters.

Funi started with Jaya and I'm pretty sure they've gone back and done from the beginning too. Are One Piece's early episodes too slow or boring? Is the CP9 Saga the first good one?

I like to think Oda just drew like, dozens of character sketches and then laid them all out for his wife and she just pointed to the ones that would make it in.

>tfw Dressrosa will be lazily animated

The coliseum fights could look spectacular but I'm cringing just thinking about all the corners they'll probably cut

I actually watched a small part of it, the first I've actually watched of anime since giving up at Fishman Island.

The one scene I saw was honestly like a perfect summary of why I stopped. It was zoro, kin, sanji and brook running from shinokuni and it was needlessly dragged on and on and on and on with animation loops and repeated dialogue.

I may force myself to watch it from the beginning at some point but that really killed my will to bother trying it again

I really can't think of it. It can't be the Marines, it can't be somebody from before Punk Hazard, chances of it being Monet or Vergo are just crazy low... who's left that would actually be on the ship? Is it gonna be ANOTHER new person?
>> No. 30881
"No no no.. this simply won't do."

That's all the hint we have so far.
My guess is that it's another "fairy" trying to steal stuff. A cohort of the one Zoro is dealing with.

Personally I hate it. The entire contrived concept of "This is strong dude. WHOA THIS DUDE BEAT HIM UP, HE IS STRONG DUDE." is only worse with Oda putting a third "WHOAAALY SHIIIIT THIS DUDE BEAT STRONG DUDE! HEEEEEE ISSSSS STRRRRRROOOOOOONG DUUUUUDE!!!!!!!!!"

It's also starting some couple hundred eps in. People who've never seen the show or read the manga are going to know they've missed a lot.
For me, I wouldn't watch a show that started so far in. I'm a completionist kind of consumer. I want all of it. Why not start from ep 1, I know FUNi's done it from the beginning.

Yeah, no. As far as anime and current serialized manga goes, One Piece fandom takes the cake for being the most pants on head insane about their theories and predictions. Go spend a few days in AP forums, then come back and tell me this is normal.

I've had people argue with me about certain possible future plot developments because, according to them, they had been studying every volume cover since the beginning and found "hidden clues" left in them from Oda.

Ah Jesus. That's not what I meant. I even considered briefly it could be misconstrued as this and I guess I still misrepresented my point and folks wanna take a bite.
This guy got the gist >>30501
Maybe you're not twisting them with your completely off sided altering of them into a sentence to represent what you think I said, but if that's the case then I just used the wrong words. What I was talking about has nothing to do with critique or positive or negative comments directly or indirectly to an artist, it's the lack of objectivity in art. What's good or bad is this medium most of all is subjective to every individual that consumes it.
To tell an artist to or to say that an artist should change something because you and however many others in agreement don't like it or find it lacking or whatever, or that it should be done another way is where you can fuck off.

Changing someone's expression, in this case Oda's artwork in specific of female characters, even if it offends something good like the cease of unrealistic idealization of women, is just unacceptable. No one has a right to try to do that.

Of fucking course you can say bad things about it, you have all the rights to that. And of fucking course you can't censor comments and critique and only say good things because then you settle and grow comfortable in a form that's inherently weak because you've never faced the wrongs of it. You're getting no upper hand in arguing that stupidly blatant fact.
>> No. 30530
Y'know, maybe if you hadn't responded to someone finding the unnaturally stick-like waists and finding them creepy personally as such you wouldn't be needing to make this post now. What's the point of defending 'art' in such a manner over someone disliking one facet of the series artstyle.

He cut Hodi because Hodi was a real threat, but nobody else. He plays with the octopus, half-ignoring him until he's forced to break the guy's toys. He does the same with Monet in slicing her so she can't control herself in fear, which simply doesn't look as amazing since she's the type that can get cut in half and survive from it.
All he's done is end fights quickly because he's bored of them since the timeskip. He's taken NOBODY seriously, Monet's just not an exception to that rule. Hell, the only exception has been in the new movie, where he gets serious against a female swordsman.
>> No. 30411
But that wasn't enough to end the fight with Monet, She was still going for him until Tashigi backstabbed her.
It seems like Tashigi was just there so Zoro didn't have to seriously injure a woman.

And did Oda do the writing for the new movie like how he was deeply involved in Strong World?
