Title: One Piece Thread: The best comic you haven't read
Post by: Bebpo on November 14, 2008, 09:58:00 PM
Every Friday I read the latest chapter of One Piece and every week it reaffirms that One Piece is the greatest piece of literature in comic book form at least since I was growing up.  I don't mean it in the sense that it is extremely intellectual well-written dialogue with deep themes and symbolism, but rather that the worldview and story is bigger and better than anything else I've ever read, hell even in novel form (it helps that OP is fucking LONG).

The worldview is incredible.  Things happen in the present and then you go back and re-read chapters from years ago and you see people commenting off hand about these exact same things and you realize this was all foreshadowed and connected years ago into the worldview.  There are so many MAJOR characters, major groups, and the world is so big...yet everything makes sense and is just weaved together so perfectly that it feels like the author Oda Eiichiro must have sat down and basically jotted out a 1000 outline of the entire universe before he even started the manga.

Even the characters are fantastic.  The lead character Luffy is probably the most likeable lead in any Japanese comic to date.  It's impossible to hate the guy, he's just awesome.  The rest of the crew and the antagonist are usually fun and likable as well.  The major villians and major powers tend to be well developed interesting cast members. 

The writing has excellent humor, great emotionally powerful moments where you stand up and cheer along with the characters, and great fight setups.

The art is kinda funky and it turns a lot of people off, but you get used to it and it gets better as it goes along.  It's no Berserk or anything in artistic excellence but it looks good.

So yeah, outside of a few people on gaf I don't know ANYONE who actually reads One Piece.  Instead people read these shitty comics like Naruto or Bleach or something...wtf!  Sometimes you meet someone who watches the anime adaptation of OP, but it's got nothing on the comic.  The pacing is slow and there's added fillers between arcs.  It's an utter crime to humanity that so few people outside of Japan read One Piece.  Normally I think mainstream and majority taste is usually awful, but the fact that One Piece, which is IMO the greatest manga ever written is also the #1 most popular manga in all of Japan and has millions of readers makes me happy inside.  Unfortunately this does not expand to the western world.

I implore you, if you haven't read One Piece, give it a fair chance.  The beginning is kinda iffy as the start of most comics are, but sit down for an hour or two and read a few volumes and give it a fair shake.  Maybe it won't be for you, but it just might become the greatest thing you've ever read and make you a happier person.

Why is it called One Piece?

There's a treasure that the previous pirate king left hid before his death that is all the wealth in the world.  He hid it at the end of the world and the first pirate to reach it and claim it will become the pirate king.  That treasure is called the "One Piece".

It's a simple premise that gives way to an epic adventure full of all kinds of great stories.

I'll tell you why I haven't read the manga.

I have this manga freak roommate (half Japanese / half Saudi) who worships OP. I tend to get his opinion on any manga or anime I hear stuff about, as I'm not a big anime/manga fan. I generally prefer manga over anime (and he does to), but when I asked him whether to read OP's manga or just watch the show, he told me to watch show.

He says that the manga sometimes make hard to imagine what sort of action is going on, like one panel would have Luffy in one place doing something, while the other has him in a different position. He went to also compliment OP's fillers and they're not bad as far as fillers go.

Now, you may strongly disagree with him, but that's what kept me from reading the manga. So fast forward to today when I've watched 315 eps when the internet has become more interested in encoding HD eps that doesn't run smoothly on my old laptop and I've got a problem; what should I do? do I go back to reading the manga from the start? or should I just continue the manga where the I left the show?

Either way, I'm in love with OP. Granted, I don't watch a lot of animes, but it has to be the most enjoyable form of entertainment I've ever experienced. I just regret not being able to grow up to this sort of stuff, so much positive energy.

Just pick up with the manga where you are.  The anime isn't bad and has a lot going for it.  The music is great, the voice actors fit very well, and the animation in the major fights is excellent.  I watched about 100 eps of the anime back in the day and enjoyed them.  I just feel it's too slow compared to the manga and as a result it doesn't have the great pacing that the manga has (outside of Skypiea arc where it bogged down a little).  The anime is pretty faithful to the manga from what I've seen and heard, so you should be fine.

I still have like 400 episodes to watch before I start the manga.  I'll start that eventually.

Skip the anime, read the manga!  You can read like 100eps worth of manga in 5 hours instead of watching it in 50 hours.

plenty of good reasons I don't read it, but the fact that there 523 of them is enough. :lol

This is an issue a lot of people have, which is fair.  I've never jumped into a manga personally that had so much to catch up on.  But honestly, here it's a positive.  There is SO MUCH good material there that you get to actually HAVE THE NEXT CHAPTER when you finish one and go "oh man I need to the next chapter!" :)  There's no rush to catch up, just read and enjoy at your own pace.  Also if you read it in English you can go through it pretty quickly.  I read most of my manga in English these days because I don't like the series I read much anymore (Naruto, Bleach, Hunter x Hunter, Gantz) and I blow through a chapter in 2-3 mins.  OTOH I read OP in Japanese because I like it so much and want to actually get the dialogue Oda writes directly and a chapter takes me about 10-15 mins.

I'm not really with the majority on the quality of OP arcs.  Most people thought Eneis Lobby was amazing, whereas I thought it was just so-so (I loved Water 7 though) and I really liked the last half of Skypiea with

Battle Royale and the Luffy v. Enel fight.  I loved the look on Enel's face when he realized he was fucked  :lol  I also really liked the ending moments with the bell.  The first half of Skypiea drags, but overall I'm a fan of the arc.

The only arc I thought actually "sucked" was the Daveyback Fight arc, but luckily that was short.

davyback is the only weak arc, if only because foxy was distinguished mentally-challenged fellowed and there was no real meaningful conflict. oh, foxy's a scum, he tricked luffy, lol wat

you didn't CARE about him getting pwned the way you wanted arlong/krieg/crocodile/wapol/enel/lucci/spandam/moria to get pwned

I think my problem with Enies Lobby was that
spoiler (click to show/hide)
I didn't like how all the antagonists were animal forms.  Fighting animals was just less exciting to me personally than humans.  The only fight I really liked was the last fight, but even then I enjoyed the fights in Water 7 more since they were human-form.  I guess I just have a furry aversion.
 I still enjoyed it and yeah Franky is great, but it's not my favorite arc.  I think my favorites are Alabasta & Thriller Bark.  Although everything since the Shabondy arc has been pretty awesome.
Title: Re: Friday thread of why don't you read One Piece? (Seriously)
Post by: Van Cruncheon on November 14, 2008, 10:52:04 PM
i didn't mind the cp9 powers -- their powers were more about the rokushiki assassination arts and their individual variations on it than their devil fruit powers. besides, it emphasized how savage they were. come on: the zoro fight was awesome (and turned into a half-animated disgrace in the anime)! i thought spandam was an awesomely wretched villain, and he's one of the few villains that was actually killed (along with arlong). you don't fuck with oda's wimmenfolk!

jinfash, the thriller bark arc turns that quasi-formula on its ear, as does the shabondy archipelago arc.
Title: Re: Friday thread of why don't you read One Piece? (Seriously)
Post by: Bebpo on November 14, 2008, 10:52:41 PM
Yeah, I liked Enies lobby a whole lot. Franky brought it to life and the whole process of uncovering Robin's past then watching her emote for the first time was pretty sweet.

As for the part you liked about Luffy vs. Enel fight Bepbo, I agree it was good. But it was also at that time when I realized that all the major villains in OP act the same thing:

cocky/unphased

cocky/unphased

cocky/unphased

cocky/unphased

Luffy goes SSJ

:o :o :o HOLY SHIT SOMEONE SAVE ME

spoiler (click to show/hide)
actually that might apply to all anime villains :lol

spoiler (click to show/hide)
Enel was different though because Enel was basically a loser/wimp who the only reason he was 'god' was because of his special ability.  So when suddenly it doesn't work and he realizes he's just a loser human being against Luffy his reaction with snot coming out of his nose and stuff was priceless.  I really liked Enel's character and felt he was different than the other villians because he really sucks and is not some tough or smart guy like the other antagonists, he was just lucky to have this random power.  He also only kept his position of power because he was in this continent away from the rest of the world.  If he was in the real world down below he would've gotten beat down by half the pirates in the sea  :lol  

Which is why I found his post-story on the moon so fitting since he really has no place to go since he's just a weakling.

enel was also a god because of his mantra, and let's face it, luffy is like the ONLY person who could beat him -- rubber trumps electricity in the pokemon world of one piece, plus luffy was too dumb for the mantra to read completely. he's clearly one of the most powerful characters in one piece, blackbeard and the marine admirals aside.

I guess it's been a while.  I don't really remember the Mantra stuff.  Still Enel was cocky to the point that no other enemy has been and it was very enjoyable to watch him get beatdown :P

I think I'm also a little kinder to Skypiea because that's where the manga was when I started reading OP and after catching up where it was when I was reading it weekly in the convenience stores.  So it's a memorable arc for me.

Yeah, I don't think you'll be able to find it.  Fan translation/scanlation sites get by because the Japanese suits don't want to bother with international lawsuits, but if there were Japanese sites with the pages up for grabs I think they'd be shut down mighty fast.

US sites have raw chapters back to a certain point, but not that far back. 

Your best bet would probably be a file sharing program though I don't advise using them while living in Japan.  Too risky IMO.  Better to just get them at a book off and sell them back when you're done.  Or spend evenings at a manga cafe, but your wife might not like that :P

*edit:  Actually googling I found this site:

There are a lot of sites that let you read one page at a time straight on the website.  They use different translations and some of them really suck so be warned.  You can also jump on a batch torrent.

Just google "one piece manga" and you should find some links.  Here's one for instance:

Eh, this prison arc is pretty fun so I don't mind.  Plus we keep getting pages on Ace and Whitebeard which is GREAT.  I'm digging Luffy's new team.  I wonder who he's getting on the next levels.  Also I think that

Good characters.
Luffy is awesome.
Not enough comics about pirates.
Artwork has too much "noise" for me. That sounds dumb, but it makes it hard for me to follow along because I'll spend five minutes trying to decipher a panel.  The guy is obviously commited to detail but it can be overwhelming.  Lets see, shonen jump is up to the bit after first croc vs luffy fight. I really thought luffy had him with that bite move. :[
You know I started reading Naruto because I'm also the social outcast attentionwhore loser but it keeps becoming more and more ridiculous. Like, its exactly the same distinguished mentally-challenged fellowed story progression of other shonen (particularly dbz).

Well here's my thoughts:

spoiler (click to show/hide)
The reason Buggy has continually been a character and is part of the story now is that he's still changing and growing as a character.  Same with Mr. 3 getting some development to be a little different now.  

With Crocodile it's like he's still the same jerk badguy he was back then, nothing's changed, and having him escape or something and be part of the plot just means someone fighting him again and if Crocodile hasn't changed it's just...what's the point?  I mean maybe they'll use him as a joke like he'll escape and Luffy will punch him once and he'll disappear from the arc, but I just don't see him being important to the story anymore.  Same with Moria.  These characters are done with their development.  I don't think they'll have much point or screentime in the story anymore.

I like Bon Clay when he's not voiced :P  I picked up Movie #8 on blu-ray cause it was only $18 at Best Buy and was supposed to be a feature film level remake of the Alabasta Arc.  It was beyond terrible (both in art/animation and cramming plot), but mainly it reminded me how Bon Clay's voice is VERY GRATING.

Anyhow I liked the new chapter.  I think this arc gets a free pass no matter what each week because we keep getting scenes with Ace and Ace is my favorite character in the manga :D

Was a good fight though.

I'm guessing like the Croc fight, he'll need to find some way to coat his fists/feet to be able to hit the guy without taking the poison damage.  If Haki is like an force aura, I could definitely see that being it.  Either that or it'll be something to do with freezing learned from lvl.5.   

I'm just glad that with Ace's execution looming right over there heads right now (within hours?), there can't be much downtime given to Bon Clay rescue force.  Luffy will need to be back in action within the next month or two unless Oda plans to kill off Ace (which I don't think he will...hopefully ^^;)

If bon clay becomes a strawhat, it's going be sorta funny in the anime, because both franky and bonclay are voiced by the same person iirc.

i've just found Suicide Island and I'm currently reading that.

The jist of the tale is Japan decides that rather than keep it's suicidal people alive they will just get them to sign consent forms and dump them on a large island.  this way they're not a drain on society.

so this cluster of people wake up on the island, realize what's happened and then they see two people not in their group kill themselves by flinging themselves from a high place, they see someone else attempt suicide but fail, just ended up a twisted antagonized mess of broken limbs.

this sufficiently freaks them all out because their selfishness didn't allow them to think about the mechanics of suicide, so now the people are on an island with no convenient food.

i'm only 3 chapters in so i expect it to turn Lord of the Flies pretty quickly.  In fact so far in the capter I'm on, there's about to be a gang rape.

anyway, you can check it out at onemanga if it strikes your fancy.

personally I am looking for a good sports manga.  maybe a baseball one.

I think I've been reading One Piece with the wrong mindset. See, every time a new chapter pops up, I'm always thinking there will be some new revelation, or some awesome long waited battle will finally occur. But it's abundantly clear that this won't be happening because Oda's a cockteasing dickbag. So from now on, when I read the latest chapter, I'm not going to expect:

-Any explanation of what transpired with the battle between Shanks and Whitebeard
-Any actual fighting occurring between the navy and Whitebeard
-Zoro fight Mihawk
-Any more Yonkou revealed

for at least another another 10 years. Instead I'll just enjoy whatever the hell's going on at the moment.

zoro won't fight mihawk until luffy reaches raftel or thereabouts, i.e. THE END OF THE SERIES. the rest? it's a series about the strawhat pirates, not the world itself. if those scenes or information are relevant to the current plot, then oda will draw or reveal them. ah hurr!

Been watching One Piece anime.

It's been a while.

I'm on Alabasta now and it's way better than I remember it. Such a magnificent arc.

The more I watch the more I think the manga and anime compliment each other. There's so many moments in the anime that work so much better in it, like the physical comedy. I also think the anime is more hilarious all around but that's probably just me.

Daaaaaamn.

The amount of power players involved right now at Impel Down is crazy.  I think this will maybe come down to the D?  Maybe Teach is helping Luffy reach Ace.  Though the whole "I'm on the government's side" thing doesn't really support that.  The opposite would be that Teach is there to take down Luffy to rise higher in his worth to the government.

Or he could be there to take out Jinbei and free another Shichibukai spot for someone he knows.

So they're [Viz & Funimation] going to start releasing the current manga chapters and anime eps in English.  Seems like a pretty big gamble since they're trying to appeal to the fansub/scanlation group and who knows how large that group is and if they'd be willing to support official releases.

Nice to see that luffy and blackbeard are now properly "introduced"

my first guess on blackbeard's possible intent and proles post on the subject seems to be happening? (given how it weirdly it played out)

It was interesting reading about Hannybal's version of "justice" and "evil" and gives more insight into the character.

Ivankov is still so messed up  :ninja

SO GOOD
SO SO GOOD

I really like Blackbeard. Oda is doing a very good job of setting up an awesome likeable and interesting antagonist for the end of OP.  Blackbeard is strong & ruthless, but he's also a true pirate and believes in the true pirate dream.  He's almost like a rival to Luffy more than an enemy and it's only his viciousness that puts him in enemy territory.  His encounters inspire Luffy to grow and continue down his path.  The page this week about One Piece was really good.  Also the exchange with Crocodile was nice.

AND on top of all this Oda introduces MORE CRAZY WORLD SHATTERING EVENTS that are soon to happen.

Someone posted this a while ago about why Blackbeard rocks and I whole heartedly agree:

Nice ending to the Impel Down arc.  Didn't see that coming and it was exciiiting.

I'm guessing it'll go:
-Transition chapters on the sea / other events in the world
-Marine HQ arc with shichibukai + government + whitebeard + Ace's execution + Luffy & friends

Magellen is craaaaazy powerful though.  Either Blackbeard will take him out or he'll show up in the one panels later on and we see where his life went after this.  I don't think Luffy will ever fight him again.  Magellen isn't even a bad guy; he's just doing his job and people keep messing it up for him.

Jimbei would make a good strategist.  He uses his brain and takes care of the situation.

But yeah, he's too powerful to join.  He's basically on par with Luffy and the crew has to be weaker than Luffy so they can't outshine him.

they can't have the same father either. Dragon is Luffy's father, this has been established.

It seems to me Roger asked Garp to take care of Ace. So he raised Ace as his own. So Luffy, being younger, just called him brother. He wouldn't know any of this. They may not be related by blood but they are still brothers.

In any case...This totally ruins my theory that Roger is Robin's father.

I think Oda may be willing to bend that rule for the sake of character development this time. I mean, really. Someone's going to die. This whole conflict starts a giant war. We just don't know what goes down.

But do you guys really think they'd start a giant war in One Piece without someone dying? Even if it's not a flashback, when someone dies in One Piece, something big happens.

People's reactions to the twist make me think two things:

2.  Someone on gaf brought up the possibility that Dragon IS Gold D. Roger.  Far-fetched but...plausible?

pretty sure roger and garp are cousins, they all share the lineage of D -- which probably ties into the secret of raftel and the lost century and the "one piece" and blah blah blah

it's only a dumb plot twist if you see roger HIMSELF as the element around which the plot must revolve and NOT the idea that roger was just another inheritor (albeit more successful) of the "will of D" like garp and luffy and ace and rayleigh

admittedly, oda has been pretty generous in making roger/luffy parallels at every opportunity so it's kinda hard NOT to expect those parallels to be codifed as a family bond

Agreed. Would have made more sense if Luffy was his son.
No it wouldn't. Why would Dragon save him if this was the case?

Oda coulda made him his uncle or something.

Although this does at least shed some light on why Luffy and Ace didn't have the same last name.
that wasn't my point, i just don't like the idea of the pirate king being a father to any of those two.

and the whole 20 months pregnancy thing? ugh.

No, I agree that neither should have been his son. Though I was saying that it doesn't seem to make sense that out of the two, it would be Ace. Just seems weird.

it's not the twist that bugs me -- i'm all "whatEVAH" about that -- it's luffy's and ace's childhood timeline.

it goes like this?

- ace is born to rouge portgas (who then dies), she gives him to garp at roger's behest?
- garp stashes the baby somewhere for a decade-ish?
- luffy's mom has luffy after dragon has run off, gives baby luffy to garp?
- garp introduces a 12-13? year old ace to a 9-10? year old luffy, who now has the straw hat and scar?
- now they are brothers? they spend 3-4 years together getting trained by garp? ace eats a devil fruit at some point?
- ace bails to be a pirate at age 17, luffy is 14 because he says he has 3 more years?
- luffy leaves at age 17?

WAT

WHERE THE FUCK IS LUFFY'S MOM (SHE IS NOT MAKINA)

HOW DOES GARP HAVE THE TIME TO RAISE TWO KIDS BY HIMSELF AS A MARINE VICE-ADMIRAL

WHY DID HE KEEP THEM SEPARATED FOR SO LONG

So Whitebeard's a devil fruit user? Not too surprising, but interesting nonetheless. I wonder if Shanks is also one.
Title: Re: Friday thread of why don't you read One Piece? (Seriously)
Post by: Cindi Mayweather on July 30, 2009, 09:11:27 PM
I really hope Shanks and Mihawk aren't users.

Shanks' being able to rumble one on one with Whitebeard without being a user would be DAMN impressive and Mihawk being a user would make Zoro's training useless.

Post by: Van Cruncheon on July 30, 2009, 09:51:44 PM
Silvers rayleigh isn't a df user and he stopped kizaru cold

Will of d/king's haki trumps df powers, so it's probably a safe bet shanks and mihawk aren't df users

but this should have been obvious given the blackbeard story about the crew hunting for DFs and the rule of "who finds it, owns it"

but the use of df's in this series continues to be awesome due to the "balance" it seems to have.

I dunno man. Whitebeard is the strongest dude in the world. Why expect his crew to not have Devil Fruit Users, especially given how many crewmates he has?

People who don't have any power like Mihawk, Shanks, Zoro and Sanji are rare it seems, especially as you get closer to the new world. You need a devil fruit to survive it seems. People that are naturally uncanny in their strength like Garp, well...those guys are the exception.

Zoro is going to fight Diamond Man. Just watch. At the end of the Mr. 1 fight, they bring up this very subject.

I get that but it felt cooler if it was their pure skill, oh well, got to do what you can i suppose.

Given what happened to the strawhats when they were not even near to the new world i can see the temptation.

Now it brings the question if Whitebeard had the DF when he fought Roger those years ago?
Title: Re: Friday thread of why don't you read One Piece? (Seriously)
Post by: Cindi Mayweather on August 06, 2009, 04:37:44 PM
Good question. I'm sure he was, it seemed like he and Sengoku hadn't spoken to each other in years but it seemed to me that Sengoku has fought with WB many many times, and the only time I can really think of that occurring is during the time when he (WB) and Roger were rivals.

But this begs the question. What the hell was Roger's power, if he had one? I'm sure it had to be something as amazing as WB's.

roger has the "will of d" and/or the king's haki, like garp and luffy and shanks and silvers rayleigh do, and that power can cancel out df powers (as per amazon lily). there's some suggestion that zoro and mihawk also have that ability. rayleigh stopped kizaru cold, and rayleigh admits he'd lost a lot of his power. roger was probably :-O

I don't remember haki ever cancelling a df power. We've only seen it in action a few times: Shanks scaring away the sea king who bit off his arm, Amazon Lily, Blackbeard vs Luffy, arguably Zoro using Ashura against Kaku since he was able to predict his move, Rayleigh vs Kizaru.

Post by: Van Cruncheon on August 06, 2009, 05:06:04 PM
haki is basically "fighting spirit" according to oda, like super-chi -- it's a pure expression of a true warrior's power and cancels the "impure" power of the devil fruit when they clash (although apparently the two can be used in conjunction ala luffy and whitebeard and CP9 and boa hancock + sisters). the chicks on amazon lily said the same thing, and then the old bint said some people of a certain disposition or lineage, like luffy, have the "king's haki," which is what rayleigh used to wipe out the auction house and shut down kizaru.

I still think Blackbeard will be like, the main antagonist in the series. He probably has haki if Luffy does, since they're so damn similar. Maybe that's why he was able to do that to Shanks?

they are showing that BB is strong already and hes constantly holding back until the time is right.

Remember its insinuated that BB got his DF some time ago and not a lot of people knows what it is.


drinky is there a confirmation that the soru ability CP9 used is haki? What about "mantra" on Sky Island? It's very similar to haki.

not sure about soru but mantra seems to be similar since one of the snake sister's predicted luffy's attacks for a while.

So it could be a part of the ability know as haki. And with skypei being so isolated they wont know if its the same.

Anime News Network has been informed that there will be an announcement tomorrow regarding the "One Piece streaming/simulcast."

FUNimation Entertainment planned to start online simulcast streaming of One Piece on May 30, with episode 403, which they aimed to make available within one hour of the Japanese broadcast. However the simulcast was quickly canceled after episode 403 was leaked and distributed online illegally more than a day before the Japanese broadcast.

Other titles affected by the leak have since returned to Funimation's online streaming services. However, Funimation has yet to restore the streams of One Piece. Episode 413 was broadcast in Japan on August 16.

yeah, whitebeard's reaction to ace's departure vs. his original reaction to shanks doesn't jive

also the "ace trying to kill whitebeard before loving him" thing seems forced

FINALLY ODA SUCCUMBS TO MARVELISM

I saw a special on Japanese TV about how manga authors are basically given entire freedom over their creations until they become hits, at which point the publisher can veto just about anything the creator proposes. So there's a possibility that this was some kind publisher mandate, or an intentionally bad, over-the-top response to something the publisher demanded.

Chapter was a little weak.  I can't believe I am agreeing with MCD, but the chaos without any actual character development is kinda boring.  The sooner they focus on specific people and their fights (hopefully interesting people) the better.

Also this is just a scan problem but these chapters being all 2 page spreads makes it a bitch to read one page at a time.

I agree with this. These chapters have been good, but I just want Luffy to get involved already. I feel like I'll appreciate this section more animated, because it's not doing as much for me as OP normally does right now.

+Coby moment, also reintroduces power levels with "OH SHIT I CAN'T DO ANYTHING WITH THESE GUYS HERE"
+Good THIS IS WAR speech by Flamingo
+Nice spread of Whitebeard f'ckin up stuff
+Garp character stuff
+Setting up Sengoku's plan
+Awesome unexpected Luffy entrance STRAIGHT INTO THE MIDDLE OF BATTLE

Pretty good for 19 pages.  Especially compared to 3 chapters of just BATTLE BATTLE BATTLE (which should work better in the anime, especially if they aren't stubborn and condense it all into 1-2 eps)

so i guess its a combination of the main crew chapter, some filler and possibly the small stories that goes on every chapter cover?

well to be fair chapters are still coming out so there is time to put some.

Plus oddly enough there is seemingly no episode about him yet

Weather Science - Nami
KaraKuri Island - Franky
Giant Bird Island - Chopper

Bridge that connects islands - Robin
Man eating plants - Usopp


Was checking out the One piece wikia and came up on this...

Quote
Hancock's earliest seen design appeared initially on the front cover of a 1999 issue of Shonen Jump, and later was reprinted in Color Walk 2. When the Straw Hats entered the Grand Line, Oda was asked by his editing department to draw villains that would appear from there on. He agreed to and drew their backs for the Shonen Jump cover. While some parts of Hancock's have definitely changed since then, Oda fully intended at the time for the design to be her.

Post by: Cindi Mayweather on September 20, 2009, 12:11:20 AM
They should. It makes no sense to animate and pay for anime episodes like this when later on, the characters are going to return, and in this episode both Nami and Franky got new upgrades. Unless the anime just ignores these upgrades later on because it's not canon - both unlikely and stupid.

The Nami one was meh, looks like she'll still be useless with that minor upgrade.  Franky's story is interesting though.  Wonder if they will go further and give more info on Vegapunk.

she still is, the crew can't get anywhere on sea without her excellent navigation though franky kinda made her role weaker with all his gizmo shit.

my problem with her is that she really doesn't need to fight, not all characters have to fight but seeing how this is shonen it can't be helped.

well, it's to be expected -- the cast has expanded and they need their time. post-w7 you have what, thriller bark (lol filler bark am i rite), sabaody archipelago (plot heavy), and then THE AMAZING ADVENTURES OF LUFFY AND NO-ONE ELSE IN AMAZON LILY AND IMPEL DOWN AND MARINEFORD. not much room for nami -- or any other character that isn't brooke -- to shine! post-w7 has been basically picking up brooke and then moving events in the world along, rather than NAKAMA WACKY TIME. (which is sorely missed, actually.)

Title: Re: Friday thread of why don't you read One Piece? (Seriously)
Post by: Cindi Mayweather on October 02, 2009, 08:58:35 PM
Okay, so I gots me question. Roger's been dead for 20 years, so why exactly has no one claimed the One Piece treasure by now?

The 4 Emperors don't seem interested in One Piece, which is over in Raftel. Maybe no one knows how to get to Raftel. Maybe Raftel is an island similar to Sky Island where no one seriously knows how to get there, and it feels like a myth?

There's also the fact that most people have a tough time getting to the new world to begin with.

The marines probably wouldn't want to cruise in the new world partly because of the Emperors, for fear of starting war.

So you have a mish mash of people getting fucked before the red line, people getting fucked at shabondy due to it being so close to marineford and marine hq, you have people who probably are completely unable to compete with the Emperors and Warlords on an even level, we know so little about Raftel that there's probably a huge secret to get it probably related to ponleglyphs - so you'd have to able to at least decipher the old language.

It seems to me Shanks and Whitebeard aren't remotely interested in One Piece. Whitebeard already competed with Roger, and if he wanted it by now, he could have gotten it. He seems fine being the most powerful dude in the world. Shanks probably knows the secret to One Piece, but doesn't feel like there's much adventure in getting it since he already knows. Shanks passes on the dream to Luffy and Whitebeard to Ace.

At least that's what I think.

If someone were capable of getting One Piece by now, I'm sure they would have a long time ago. And that's half the mystery for me: why the fuck hasn't anyone gotten it? :hyper :hyper :hyper

remember, roger supposedly had "the power to hear the language of all things" so raftel's probably a bitch and a half to discover without, y'know, roger himself
Title: Re: Friday thread of why don't you read One Piece? (Seriously)
Post by: Bebpo on October 03, 2009, 04:32:01 AM
Whitebeard is just standing there because he's TOO STRONG and if he attacked he'd destroy the HQ along with Ace.  Instead he's being the military commander and just beating up dudes who try to take him on where he is standing.

Smoker beating Luffy down was showing that Smoker (as with a lot of the unseen cast of sub-characters) has gotten stronger as well. 

Ok chapter.  Best part was Jinbei being AMAZINGLY BADASS FOR THE nTH TIME.  Jinbei could probably beat down all the shichibukai on his own if he wanted.

At least we're going to get Kuma's backstory out of this arc.  Which will probably tie in to the anime follwups to Franky's adventure in the Vegapunk lab.

but watching the anime until you're caught up with that and continuing with the manga from there is another good route. The problem with that is there are so many One Piece groups that acquiring all the episodes is beyond frustrating.

Null is the best One Piece manga group, they're slower than others because they only translate high quality scans from the graphic novels that are released and not the weekly scans from Shonen Jump.

If need help dling files off of irc, just ask.

I think you're better off starting with the anime, but skipping the filler arcs. Once you catch up, switch to the manga.

If you're trying to catch up as fast as possible, then just read the manga.

manga

but watching the anime until you're caught up with that and continuing with the manga from there is another good route. The problem with that is there are so many One Piece groups that acquiring all the episodes is beyond frustrating.

So yeah, manga.

Looking over a few scans, it seems my respect for null was pure nostalgia. Their translations are almost off the mark as other OP translations. For example, a quick browse through a random chapter exposes that they translated Hatchi as Hati and Bellamy (yes, named after the famous pirate) as Benami (yes, named after the music games made by Konami like DDR). Oh boy.

Yeah, it's sad but the first half of OP manga is horribly to moderately badly translated.  It wasn't until people realized the series was OMG.BEST.MANGA.EVER that more legitimate groups decided to focus their effort on it.

Post by: Bebpo on October 17, 2009, 05:55:42 PM
Ok, the nakama thing is there because it's longstanding and has become an essential part of One Piece.  It's like if they came in halfway through the manga and changed Luffy's name. 

I think the translation is pretty good.  I read the Japanese chapter first and then the US one each week and one of the groups (I don't follow which group is which) does a good job.  As good as a "professional" manga translator would do.

I was first exposed to One Piece manga via Viz manga in 2003. In that they use friend.

So when I got to the fansubs/xlations, the whole "let's not translate words that could be translated" thing was homo.

I still see why it's so essential. Replace friend or comrade with nakama and you have basically the same result. Only mega japtards care about "nakama being true to the spirit of One Piece".

The fact that Ace says,"It doesn't matter to us at all. Because Luffy and I unfortunately have the blood of the world's most infamous criminal in our veins anyway." makes me STILL think that the fact Ace is Gold Roger's son, and not TRULY Dragon's son, to be a total copout.

Japanese moviegoers who see this year's One Piece Film Strong World will receive the "0th volume" of Eichiro Oda's One Piece pirate manga. Oda launched his manga about the young pirate captain Monkey D. Luffy in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine 12 years ago in 1997, but the manga in the upcoming "One Piece Kan-Zero" bonus gift will depict the world of One Piece of 20 years ago. In the real world, Oda was a junior high school student 20 years ago when he conceived of the earliest concepts of the pirate manga that would eventually become One Piece.

Good chapter. 

Highlight was when we discovered Luffy's ULTIMATE POWER and a realistic reason for why he's going to get through this situation despite being shown to be severely underpowered compared to the other participants.

Lowpoint was the Kuma army.  I'm never a fan of mass produced enemies in any form of entertainment.  Because it just gives the author an excuse to waste pages on characters fighting personality-less generic enemies.  See the end of Gundam OO for a good example.  But here I'll admit that the pacifista/kuma/vegapunk thing has been building for a while and it makes sense the government would roll them out here.

Interesting to see what happens with the broadcasting.  If the government gets their way, this whole battle won't have a huge change on public perception and bounties and Luffy's status with the world.  Which would be frustrating and not satisfying to the reader.  So hopefully at the climax of the battle someone other than the government will flip on the broadcast and show the world what's going on for realz

Yeah, that one's a lot better.  The other thing that bugged me about the earlier translation was that they didn't get that the traitor's name is squardo or squado or something (aka, the title of the chapter), which means they totally messed up the 2nd to last page when he shows up.

Spoilers are out. OOOOH.

spoiler (click to show/hide)
Squad was tricked by Akainu. Akainu told him that Whitebeard and Sengoku had made a deal to spare the lives of Ace and the Whitebeard Pirates in return for allowing the New World pirates to be killed. Akainu not-so-subtly insinuated that killing Whitebeard may save the New World pirates, and Squad went along with it.

To complete the illusion and ensure Squad's cooperation, Sengoku (who had planned all this) had done two things: first, he announced that Ace was Roger's son (Squad had once had a crew destroyed by Roger in the past), and second, had ordered beforehand that the Pacificistas would only attack the New World pirates, not Whitebeard.

Whitebeard suddenly understands everything that's happened, but still considers Squad his son. Marco, who had flown over there immediately, is astonished that Whitebeard hadn't dodged and realizes that Whitebeard has been considerably weakened since his prime. Whitebeard tells Marco that nobody can be the strongest forever, prepares to attack the Marines directly.

Sengoku tells the Marines to get ready, since the most powerful man on earth is about to start his assault.

Whitebeard. Is. Pissed.  :o

I think at this point Garp is going to have to help him cause there's no fucking way he's surviving until Whitebeard reinforcements otherwise.

Strong World chapter was neat.  Love how he had tons of characters from the series.  I don't even remember them all at this point.  Would be neat if all this emphasis on making Strong World canon actually translates into a good movie.

The croc part was kinda lame.  Like out of everyone...him?

The moby dick #2 throw was awesome though.  The shot of the ENTIRE WHITEBEARD SQUAD in the main square and ready to attack was great.

Luffy is sucking :(  Is he going to be able to do ANYTHING this fight? :(  He needs power boost ASAP.


Also next chapter = Sengoku + Garp fighting.  Hmmmmmmmmmm, still seems kinda fishy that Garp will fight against the pirates trying to save Ace.  Wonder what will happen.
Title: Re: Friday thread of why don't you read One Piece? (Seriously)
Post by: Cindi Mayweather on December 02, 2009, 04:26:55 PM
I really want to see Luffy's next power boost because Oda has been insinuating at his for the longest. Luffy is completely incapable of handling the foes currently and is getting owned left and right. He has been unable to defeat a foe without a temporary power boost since Enies fucking Lobby. The only reason he was able to man handle Moria at Thriller Bark was because he put like 100 shadows in his body and became Shadow Luffy. Even that's not enough. In Impel Down, he takes on Maggalen with a power boost from Mr. 3 and he's STILL unable to beat him.

Luffy has been getting  temporary power boosts for the past 2 arcs, and he needs something solid stat.

I doubt he'll master Haki anytime soon too.

Title: Re: Friday thread of why don't you read One Piece? (Seriously)
Post by: Bebpo on December 02, 2009, 04:52:52 PM
Yeah.  What's sad is that Luffy is still 10x stronger than the rest of his crew (save maybe Zoro).  So if Luffy can't stand up to anyone at admiral or higher level, then his crew is screwed.  As a whole they're really not in this league yet.

Then again since Oda is specifically using this time to give everyone in the crew power-ups, Luffy has to get one too as part of Oda's major plan for this arc.  Since this is the end of the arc, there isn't much time left so it's gotta be coming soon.

Plus you can't have an arc, especially a HUGE EPIC ARC like this where the MAIN CHARACTER OF THE STORY has no fights.  At the climax of this Luffy has to fight SOMEONE and beat them.  Who knows who he'll fight, but he'll probably need a power up to beat it.

My guess is he fights and beats either Kizaru or Akainu.  Whitebeard is going to take on Sengoku, Marco is taking on Iceman.  Bighead is still fighting Kuma.  Donfla is with Croc.  Oz with Jinbei. etc...
/note I think some of these fights may have ended already, but I'm not 100% on the timeline off the top of my head.

while luffy taking a haki-cocky and slapping the shit-eating grin off of kizaru's face would be amazingly cathartic, the crew better have some amazing upgrades to catch up to him. otherwise, we're looking at a dragonball level of power disparity between the hero and the rest of the protagonists

That can't happen, though. :( I think that One Piece actually balances this nicely compared to other manga/anime of this type. The rest of the crew can handle their own these days, I think. It's just the guys they're fighting are just so much more powerful.

i don't think he's gonna beat anyone, especially the admirals; he's just gonna go haki nova like he did in amazon lily and everyone will go OMG, he'll use the results to save ace and realize that he has some untapped roger-esque powerz. whitebeard dies; jinbei joins the strawhats (wishful thinking but kinda plausible -- they need a helmsman and he artistically/philosophically complements the cast well); and the marines are ruined for awhile as the world runs amok and the strawhats roll into the new world with a jinbei backstory adventure on fishman island. calling it!

that said, i'm with crushed: kizaru needs to get his ass beat. akainu is just an underdeveloped thug and aokiji is somewhat sympathetic, but kizaru is just a smirking asshole.
Title: Re: Friday thread of why don't you read One Piece? (Seriously)
Post by: Bebpo on December 02, 2009, 09:54:13 PM
I think Jinbei staying with them at least temporarily is very possible.  At one point it would've been impossible to have a shichibukai join because they would be way too strong compared to the rest of the team and outshine Luffy.  But with Luffy about to powerup along with the rest of the crew to hopefully the point they can take out admirals/shichibukai without temp cheats, then having a shichibukai like Jinbei or Hancock join isn't out of the question.

I think Luffy is going to beat down Kizaru though.  He hasn't had one real fight that he has won since Thriller Bark?  I mean he held off a few big guys, but hasn't taken any down.  If this is the last arc of the first half before the new world I think he's gotta win a fight.  Especially since he needs a powerup and the best way to show it off is him beating someone.

The admirals are the next bar power-level wise and like you said Kizaru is ready to get a beat down.  I think they'll get rid of Akainu in this fight as well because yeah he's undeveloped and overpowered to keep as a main threat in the continuing story.  Also agree on Aokiji being sympathetic so he can stick around and find a new hobby.

I think at the end of this the big plot twist for the first half conclusion is that whitebeard dies & the marines are destroyed.  Thus getting rid of the pillars holding the world together and creating an opportunity for the youth pirate age to truly flourish and take the seas for themselves.

Post by: Van Cruncheon on December 02, 2009, 10:07:31 PM
not sure how luffy could beat kizaru, though, unless there's haki involved -- one piece doesn't really work on power levels but on devil fruit power match-ups, with haki/swordsman's ki as a sort of parallel power development thang (zoro/rayleigh/mihawk/shanks), and as the occasional trump card so the logia users aren't fuckin' gods (opposing devil fruit powers aside, enel vs. luffy :bow2 :bow2). kizaru's weakness is his glibness and carelessness, though, so i suppose it could be possible? dunno; the strength of this whole series is its clever wedding of shonen predictability with many, many moments of oda-brand unpredictability (that, and that oda is apparently the only person in comics -or- manga who can meticulously plan and execute an overarching plot and character development across an obscene number of issues). i can call the obvious things, but truth is, oda really surprises me in the details.
Title: Re: Friday thread of why don't you read One Piece? (Seriously)
Post by: Cindi Mayweather on December 02, 2009, 10:12:34 PM
Pretty much. Every time I expect something to happen one way in One Piece, it happens the complete opposite.

The only way I can imagine Luffy beating Kizaru is with haki, and given how much Oda has been teasing haki since Shabondy, it's high time he learn how to control it.

I guess its due to the amount of rainforests (he his a monkey) and large biodiversity.

Also it could relate to the hellish training garp used to give him by sending him in jungles and learning to survive (eg having a slight idea about the mushrooms in Amazon lily, fighting wild animals and eating them, etc).

OP is the best selling manga in Japan because it's read by EVERYONE.  There are plenty of 40/50 year old businessmen reading OP.  OP is very accepted in Japan as part of popular culture.  I enjoy the fact that everyone loves OP.  It makes me think they have good taste!

It'd be more like the NY Skankees thanking the NYT with a 9 page setup each with a photo of a player and the same thank you note to the newspaper.  Would you think less of the NYT there?

Not feeling this chapter as much.  Luffy sucks, Whitebeard kicks Aokiji's ass but Aokiji isn't dead (yeah I know people can't die, but then how are they going to keep him down).  Not a whole lot of progression from last chapter.  Sengoku still doesn't fight.  Where did Garp get the emperor's chair from?

Post by: Crushed on December 10, 2009, 05:04:54 PM
He hasn't had any real rest since he entered Impel Down almost 24 hours ago, having been fighting guards and monsters, the harshness of each level of Impel Down, suffering from Magellan's poison, and going through Ivankov's healing hormones. He's only been as strong as he's been because of Ivankov's adrenaline booster hormones too. He's fighting against the bulk of the Marine forces, Vice Admirals, Pacifistas, Shichibukai, and Admirals. He's out of his league, his allies aren't his crew, and he keeps running forward by himself into the fray. It's amazing that he managed to get so far before clocking out, frankly.

That said, we may see an instant recovery soon, like during Arabasta when it turned out he collapsed only to wake up from a "nap" for a few minutes. Ivankov's vigor/adrenaline hormones aren't supposed to wear off and cause a crash for a full day, though it's possible Luffy's managed to "use them up" in such a short time frame.


Betting on Jinbei or another ally sacrificing themselves to an Admiral, VA, or Shichibukai in order for Ace to be freed, when Luffy wakes up, busts out an Emperor's Haki-fueled punch, and promptly collapses for a week-long sleep-n'-eat session. Everybody pulls back, total stalemate overall. Ace is saved, which is a point in WB's favor, but Whitebeard's growing weakness in old age has become apparent, weakening his influence and leading to some of his territories coming into question. WB officially "retires," handing down leadership to one of his commanders (probably Marco, I doubt he would give the responsibility to Ace so soon).

here's my bets:

1.5:1 luffy goes haki
3:1   ...and takes out an admiral
3:1   ...and that admiral is kizaru
30:1  ...and that admiral is akainu
80:1  ...and that admiral is aokiji
2:1: whitebeard dies
10:1 jimbei dies
20:1 jimbei joins luffy and the strawhats
500:1 garp dies
10:1 oda wusses out and no-one dies
1.1:1 oars jr lives

Does anyone actually think Sengoku has any special powers? He IS the chief guy in charge of the marines, but at the same time, we haven't gotten any hints about any of his abilities since he was introduced.

Also, does Garp hold the same rank as Aokiji and the other 2 admirals?

i know a lot of people are waiting for dragon to eventually show up, but i'm not really feeling that idea. this is a war between pirates and the marines. dragon's main target is the world government itself (the marines just get in his way), and he's never really been shown to be a "pirate" himself. this isn't his fight.

Yeah.  It's nice that he's not getting magic powerups, but I agree the temp powerups gotta stop.  It's like without them he is still the exact same as he was before the team split.  That's not going to work when his crew all just got powerups.  There's got to be something.

I'm thinking that he just went HORMONE CRAZY and let off some god level haki.  Maybe he'll realize how it works and be able to use it even after the hormones wear off.


Also with all the whitebeard crew getting owned I don't see how he is going to take on EVERYONE even if he is super buffed up for a bit.  Maybe he'll save Ace and Blackbeard's plan will appear and end this battle.

No way.

The Garp scene where he couldn't do it was major.  It's just that in the bite sized 14 page chapters we've been getting it doesn't have the same impact as it will when you read the whole arc as a whole or watch the arc in the anime.  That was an EPIC scene.

And Ace at the end was awesome because Ace is awesome and it's the clinch moment of the arc.  Now it's time for some PAYBACK.

Sengoku's form was kinda meh but I'm sure we'll see more of it next chapter. 


Why was Mr.3 on the scaffold?

Since this was brought up in the gaf thread I figured I should recap here:

tl;dr is that the translations in the scans are pretty bad and they kinda missed an important line 3 chapters ago after Luffy released his haki and everyone reacts.  In the scan the whitebeard pirate just says "that's haoshoku haki!" but in the raw what he actually said was "that's the same haousoku haki that whitebeard, shanks, and others have!".

Because apparently some people in that thread didn't realize that Whitebeard has the king level haki.

Well they are on an island, so if you apply anime-logic Akainu could have fallen through the crack and into the earth's magma core. That might be pushing it though (he's probably just floating on that rock slab somewhere).

Movie 6 is the best overall movie.

Yeah, 6 is by far the best. Unique art style, solid story, well-done humor; Its the only one I can recommend to people who aren't already huge OP fans. Probably because the director was Mamoru Hosoda (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time).

btw, how can there be a raw of Strong World if the DVD hasn't even come out yet? Whatever you download will probably be fake or a crappy cam bootleg of a korean airing.

I'm pretty positive Oda will employ a timeskip after this current arc.

In the past five years we have had Water 7/Enies Lobby, Thriller Bark, Shabondy, and this current arc which is on its last legs.

If he time skips and the rest of the series is in New World, I don't see why it shouldn't take five more years to complete.

Except the author had stated several times over the last few years that the series is only half way done. However he also admitted that he has a problem with taking longer than expected.

I think we can talk about the series ending once we get to chapter 1000  :lol

he wanted to complete it in five years (staring from the first chapter's release date) but it got bigger than that.

I think there gonna be a time skip since it would go in hand with Oda (rumored) saying that this current arc is Luffy's last at 17 years of age.

One Piece 576 Spoiler Translation
One Piece 576: The Blackbeard Pirates

We see Akainu landing on some rock, and he doesn’t touch the ocean, laying defeated and bloody.

There's a close up of Whitebeards face; his eyes are white

Sengoku: “What the hell is this, Blackbeard!?” (he lets go of Garp)

Blackbeard: “Zehehahaha! Sorry to disappoint you, I’ve just been waiting for the right opportunity.”

Sengoku: “??”

Marines: “Opportunity? Whats he talking about? Is he still a Shichibukai?”

Blackbeard: “Didn’t I tell you, straw hat?? You put up a good fight, but it’s my time now! Sorry! zehahahaha!”

Luffy is unconscious in Jimbei’s arms

He jumps down from the scaffold, landing with darkness all behind him.

We see individual portraits of his crew, all of which are smirking.

Blackbeard: “It’s time for me to replace you, father! ahahah”
with writing, “The Blackbeard pirates assemble!!”

Marco (angered): “That bastard, this is all his fault!”

The Whitebeard pirates stop running and start turning around to face teach.


WB Pirate: “Hey, what’d he say to the old man!!?”
WB Pirate: “Whoa! Are those the 3 legendary impel down prisoners!? Is that Shiryu?!”

Close up on Whitebeard; his eyes are shut: “Get out of here, NOW!!!!”

“Teach!!” says a group of WB pirates as they grit their teeth and turn for the ship.

Luffy is being rushed aboard a ship by Jimbei, oblivious to the happenings.


Sengoku: “Replace him? What is this nonsense?”

Blackbeard: “I will kill Whitebeard myself, and claim his title as Younkou! And you marines had better not interfere!”


Sengoku: “You dog! You can never trust a pirate… Aokiji!”

Aokiji springs forth and shoots a torrent of ice towards blackbeard

The large drinking crewmember (Basco Shot) leaps down, drinking his bottle and releases a spray of fire from his mouth, incinerating the ice blast.

Aokiji: “this man… this will be more difficult than I thought”
Aokiji instantly freezes the ground and it rushes toward, and freezes Bascos' feet

Close up on Blackbeards face as he grins. The HUGE OARS like man (San Juan Wolf) smashes his fist on the floor, shattering the ice surrounding Shot's feet, while smiling.

Blackbeard: “So, it’s going to be like this, is it?! Zehahaha!”

Shot's standing in front of Blackbeard, BUT THE NEXT THING WE SEE IS A FLASH OF VICE ADMIRAL GARP!!

He appears out of nowhere; then a close up of his face with tears in his eyes

Garp: “ACEEE!! He started this!”

BAM!!!! His huge fist connects with Shot and smashes him away into a building.

Blackbeard: ?!?!

Garp stops before Blackbeard

Sengoku (thinking oh crap I let him up): “Garp, what are you doing!?”


Blackbeard: “Zehahahaha! I’m sorry about Ace! Apologize to straw hat for me, will ya?”
As he charges his darkness around his fist and blasts away the ground, knocking Garp back. Garp is blasted away

Sengoku is about to charge but stops and thinks: “They only seem to want to target Whitebeard. I should let this go for the moment”

Kizaru is about to fly in, but is halted by Sengoku: “stop for the moment”

Blackbeard is walking towards Whitebeard with his crew behind him, walking past the marines and towards WB.

Marines: Wow, look at his crew! Amazing, Shiryuu of Impel down, shichibukai Blackbeard, the 3 legendary prisoners... what power!!!”

Blackbeard (staring down WB): “It’s time to claim my prize! Zehahahaha!!”
Whitebeard stands strong and resolute.
WB pirates shocked and worried

pic 4
Even in death, Whitebeard's body never caves in.
Even with half of his head gone, he still destroys his enemies.
His statue could only be described as a "monster".

The number of sword wound he recieved in this battle... 267 slashes.
The number of gun shot wound he recieved in this battle... 152 shots.
The number of cannon blast he recieved in this battle... 46.

Yet all you could see in his proud back... or shall we say, his life as a pirate....
Not a single wound from fleeing could be seen!!!"

Amazing, epic end to Whitebeard.  The mangastream translation is shit.  Here is what he actually says:


Quote
It ain't you. The man Roger waits for, at the very least it ain't you.
Just as there are those who have inherited Roger's will, one day ones will appear to inherit Ace's will. You've cut off the "bloodline"...but their flames will never be extinguished.

That's the way it's been passed on from long ago....!! And one day in the future, someone will appear carrying the weight of these hundred years of history and challenge the world.

Sengoku...your world government is afraid of this world enveloping "great war" that will one day come!!!

I've got no interest in it, but when someone finds that treasure....the world will recoil....!!
Someone will find it, that day will surely come...
One Piece exists!!!

Forgive me sons...I've left behind a huge idiot...this is as far as I go.
You've given me everything.
I am indebted to you all. Goodbye my sons..!!

I pointed out a few other corrections from the chapter in the gaf thread, but I think it's mainly important to get his speech right.

He covers Whitebeard's body with a darkness coating, but when it comes back out it looks like nothing's changed.

Then Blackbeard sinks the Marines' feet into the ground with darkness... AND USES WHITEBEARD'S EARTHQUAKE POWERS TO ATTACK THEM

I don't think they really had a choice.  The whitebeard death stunned them all for a second which let Blackbeard do his trick here, meanwhile the admirals were off trying to stop the boats from leaving. 

Now they'll all turn around and focus on him (which is how the ships & Luffy will get away).  But he's gonna destroy 'em and take off.


btw, this chapter confirms that Jinbei is the next crew member unless somehow he DIES in the next chapter or two.  In the Japanese version flashback with Ace he tells ace he doesn't protect anyone unless they truly earn his respect.  That plus everything so far and Ace's dying wish being that Jinbei protects his brother.  Plus the fact that Jinbei is basically a YOJIMBO aka. bodyguard from the name to the personality to the Japanese fighting style

Folks, we just got Jinbei perm'd.  And I gotta say I am very happy with that since he is badass and wise.  Something the crew was missing.

Jinbei owns, Himu. He's a fucking whale shark fishman samurai. There's nothing about that that isn't awesome.


Also, I'm not sure if it's the Will of D that makes BB's body "different" and lets him get two DF powers. It could be the Yami-Yami Fruit being a totally different kind of Logia that does it. Also, Whitebeard implied that Blackbeard isn't a "true" successor in some regard.

I agree that it's the Dark Dark fruit at play here.

And I agree that Jinbei is awesome, but not SH recruit awesome. If he displays any level of personality during this arc maybe I'll bite. But for now, I'm on the hancock train. Seeing her interact with Chopper would be hilarious. Or her prudeness vs Nami. Or Sanji ignoring Nami and Robin for her. Or her constantly trying to get with Luffy with him ignoring her. Hancock is a natural Strawhat.

Tralfargar Law appears (what the fuck) and says he'll help Luffy. If Luffy's foot is missing, it's obvious how Law is going to fix that!

Yeah, the buggy :o face was awesome.
Akainu is WAY TOO FUCKING POWERFUL.  He's taken on like every character in this manga and is still in great condition.  WTF.  He's basically Whitebeard status, which is ludicrous.  


So now Luffy, Jimbei, Buggy will escape and we will hear about how Blackbeard escaped from Marineford and how Akainu killed or arrested the entire Whitebeard fleet?

Any guesses on the submarine?  I kind of wonder if Luffy's crew is going to be onboard.  The shadow makes it seem like it's someone familiar.  At first I thought it was a wax submarine made by Mr. 3, but I don't think it is.

Disagree. I think all three admirals + Sengoku are probably around the same level of power it's just that Akainu is obviously the most dedicated one. Unlike Aokiji who carries a level of piety, or Kizaru who's just lazy and bored, Akainu has a "no prisoners, they all die" approach. He's tunnel visioned. That coupled with his power makes him such a threat. But in regards to overall power? I'd wager he's on par with Aokiji and especially Kizaru.

Uh, didn't Law LEAVE this chapter with Luffy?

I don't think any meeting will happen.  In fact, I think it's a 50/50% chance whether we'll even see what happens at the island.  If the story follows Luffy/Law and they high tail it, we might just get a summary of how it ended and not actually see it.  Sorta like the Shanks vs. Whitebeard part.

Luffy is not going to meet Shanks until the end of the manga.  Not sure how he's gonna get the hat back because wasn't the reason Luffy had the hat in the first place was to give back to Shanks when Luffy finally met him in the end and had grown to his level?

one piece 580 spoiler, break the following week

WHITEBEARD WAR OFFICIALLY OVER

spoiler (click to show/hide)
Soruce: AP
Credit: Ahoige_AP
Verification: Confirmed

Title is… I think the cover was Robin

Shanks picks up the strawhat, and says this isn’t how we promised, so we’ll do this next time.. as he flashes back on the past.
He tells Buggy he’ll give him a treasure map, so give this strawhat to Luffy.
Buggy gets excited and takes the strawhat back to Luffy, but upon return he realizes Shanks was just screwing with him, and starts insulting Shanks. The prisoners see him talking to Shanks, a Yonkou, as his equal, and say they’ll follow Buggy for life.

Aokiji and Kizaru attacks Law’s submarine trying to escape.
Ice Age freezes even the ocean below, and Kizaru’s laser spam rains down from above as the sub tries to dodge and run (whether they got away or not isn’t shown)

Some interaction between Marco and Shanks.
Shanks tells the marines if you want to continue, the entire Redhaired Pirates will face them.
Sengoku gives up the war, and tells the marines to tend to the wounded.
He (doesn’t specify if this is Sengoku or Shanks) then looks at Blackbeard, and says this isn’t the time to fight you yet… we’ll withdraw as we got what we wanted.
Hancock charms marines, and takes them to search for Luffy
Shanks says he’ll do the burial for Whitebeard and Ace.
Some of the marines protest to this, but Sengoku tells him “I don’t mind… since it’s you”
One shots of all the characters, and narration stating the war has ended, and fin.

Break next chapter.

Last page was the best. I hate his character and his story arc. Good riddance.

Edit: Actually I should say I liked his arc the least.
I feel sorry for Moria, he got buttfucked in the new world, destroyed by Luffy and co and now he is getting erased by the world government.

Oda is one cruel of a bastard.

Interesting chapter.  Good way to sidestep the timeskip hype for a chapter.  Have no clue what is going to happen next.  Still have all bets on timeskip eventually before it comes back to Luffy being alive and in normal condition.

I started re-reading One Piece from the chapter after Albasta ends and I'm in the middle of Skypiea and while OP is EPIC lately I really miss the "adventure" aspect of OP that was so strong in Jaya, Skypiea, Water 7, Thriller Bark of exploring a mysterious new land and going on an adventure with lots of comedy and crew development.

I hope Merman Island is a return to that.  OP needs its non-buggy comedy back.

I was talking on how this flashback will help him.
 
I see what your saying though as the only flashback stuff we ever had with Luffy was him hanging with Shanks.

Since he revealed that Ace was not his true brother i guess it was time to go through their past.

Yeah, uh I think I lost my timeskip bet.  I really don't think we are getting more than these 2 weeks.  Luffy is already awake and moving around.  After the flashback and some rest he'll probably be ok and out at sea to meet up with the other strawhats (or they'll come to him).

I think someone made a good point though in the gaf thread.  Since Luffy is the only character without a fleshed out backstory, if you're going to finally put it in somewhere in the manga, right now in this between acts lull is a good place to do it.

This is the first time in One Piece where the location makes no sense to me. Even a Sky Island makes more sense to me now.

Okay so at the bottom of the island is windmill village. In the mountains is where Dadan lives and further out still is the grey terminal. Is grey terminal in the mountains/forest? It doesn't look like it.

Okay, there's a map in the chapter. Thanks, Oda!

No way. We still have to go over the prerequisite "Luffy and Ace growing up" scenes plus whatever horrifying thing happens to poor Sabo next chapter. After all the foreshadowing with the World Nobles for the last few chapters, there is no way they won't do something horrifying.

Anyway, these flashback chapters are alot more interesting if you're reading the fan theories. For example, speech bubbles keep blocking out the Goa King's face, leading some people to predict that he's really the "Corrupt King" guy who joined Blackbeard from Impel Down. That would be pretty badass if it happens, and it'll be a good opponent for Sabo if he ever appears again in the future.

At this point, I don't think Sabo will die like in standard OP flashbacks. I thought after he got taken away from Luffy/Ace Oda would lower the amount of appearances Sabo has made, but he's becoming even more crucial to the story each new chapter and has gotten almost as much chapter time as Ace and Luffy by himself.

He's important to the story, calling it now. He's not going to die considering the amount of time Oda has spent developing him.

I bet you Sabo will become a slave.

I've never read that theory so far, but that's interesting as fuck.

What other theories are out there aside from Sabo will become a slave/Goa King = Impel Down prisoner?

Dadan = Jewelry Bonney. This theory mostly hinges on Bonney's weird remarks during the Marineford arc and the fact that Bonney and Dadan's 'second in commands' look near identical. Its a plausible theory since Bonney's aging fruit would allow for such insanity and that its one of the few ways a minor mountain bandit from East Blue could reenter the present-day story (like Dadan will inevitably do). The major hinderence to the theory is the fact that Bonney supposedly comes from South Blue, but this could easily be explained away.

Arabasta arc is fine, I'm kind of hating how ADVENTURE IN THE DESERT has turned into 40 EPISODES OF FILLER. So glad Chopper is along, though. I'm like a 12 year old girl when it comes to Chopper. I bought some stupid cell phone charms off the street last weekend. Gayyyyyy.

Anyway, I'm excited to get past Arabasta and really kind of see the Grand Line open up. I hope Ace pops up more often, although he's like stupid-strong, blowing up ships and deflecting bullets and whatever/

The Alabasta episodes around the 100 mark are indeed filler. There's about 2 or so filler episodes. Also, they sometimes mix filler with canon plots, so you should watch them anyways. Once they're out of the desert though, Alabasta moves at a pretty steady pace.

How? The desert filler is like basically like 2-3 episodes. The desert eps last like 8-9 episodes total. So, of that amount, you've basically got just 2-3 filler episodes and then they reach their destination. How is that worse than Thriller Bark, which overextends itself to be over 50 episodes?

Post by: treythemovie on June 10, 2010, 03:33:52 PM
Luffy had the worst flashback of the crew. wtf.
For its length? Definitely. Just compare it to Robin's flashback which was a similar length. In Robin's flashback, the mysteries behind Robin were finally revealed, tragedies occured, we saw some cool stuff like Akainu and we learned some important shit like the World History or what the buster call was. But in Luffy's flashback we got nothing. There is no mystery to be revealed about Luffy, the story focused on his two supposedly dead brothers, there was no cool interesting shit except for Dragon's brief cameo, and even the tragedies were impactful since we've already done the whole 'World Nobles are douches'/'Luffy's brother dies' plotlines. And to make matters worse, the current-day story is 100x more interesting than this flashback.

I think it would have been better had this flashback happened before Marineford started. At least then its developing a character who was still alive. But done this way and it feels like a lengthy retcon to explain why Ace was so stupid against Akainu. I know the author is trying to use this flashback to set up a future arc and that he feels its necessary information, but it could have been so much more interesting.

You should probably stop hoping for that.  :-\

No way. The low point of the anime is defintely the filler hell it entered post-G8 and before Water 7  :yuck

Thriller Bark wasn't that bad, its just that the 1 chapter per episode pacing only compounded the slowness at occured in the arc's beginning from the manga. One Piece has been going at this sort of pacing since Skypeia, and moreso, Water 7. Sometimes it works great (Sabaody!) while other times it drags (beginning of Enies Lobby, beginning of Thriller Bark).

The Davy Back Fight was pretty bad in the anime. I loved it in the manga, but in the anime it was horrible. They'd make up new contests that wasn't in the manga for the sake of extending it. It sucked.

Also, I disagree with Water 7. I think as a whole, Water 7 is the height of One Piece anime.

I was hoping they'd do Impel Down similar justice but that wasn't the case. Hopefully they do Marineford justice. Sabondy was great too, I admit.

Water 7 had some slow episodes but overall it was pretty good. Its the beginning of Enies Lobby, specifically, that was animated and paced poorly.

agreed

It would have been better if we got the flashback between Impel Down and Marineford, I agree.
I hold out a completely hopeless wish that after the anime comes back from its goddamn Clip Show(s), it'll just start doing Luffy's flashback rather than start Marineford, or at least throw it in later when Ace's flashback happens. Its never going to happen, especially because it leaves Luffy with nothing to flashback to post-Marineford, but I still think it would make the arc better.

Sometimes I wonder how Marineford would have went down had the author not been juggling the manga, the anime, the Strong World movie and a new baby all at the same time. Perhaps then it wouldn't have been so bogged down by the short chapters, frequent breaks and the most contentless One Piece chapter ever (the short one with only doublepages).

And despite all of that, Marineford is still better than any arc in Bleach or Naruto. In my opinion, the drama and emotional moments make Sabondy + Impel Down + Marineford into the ultimate One Piece arc. It has the fast island to island pacing of early One Piece while being the most dramatic One Piece has ever been.

On 2nd read with an actual good translation, I'm happy with the chapter.  Overall the flashback was iffy in terms of this dramatic event happened in Luffy's past but the way it was presented didn't really feel dramatic. 

Also didn't notice Zoro cameo in the chapter
And the other translation made that Dragon page wtf, but here you see the page exists because it shows how Sabo survived and joined the revolutionary army (probably).

Nami's new Tenpo thing was kind of goofy, though. Why didn't Usopp make one for himself? Anyway- The new opener is SPOILER CITY, it has Nico Robin as a crew member like 15 episodes before she joins.

Nami's new Tenpo thing was kind of goofy, though. Why didn't Usopp make one for himself?
Nami's weapon requires a prophetic ability to judge the weapon so no other than her can really use it. But more importantly, Usopp just thought it was a party tool  :lol

Anyway- The new opener is SPOILER CITY, it has Nico Robin as a crew member like 15 episodes before she joins. WHat's up with that?
One Piece is so popular in Japan that Robin joining was pretty much common fact at that point.

Pell is the worst example of that in the entire series The next major arc after that is pretty bad about it too, but after that the author stops using the bullshit fake-out death scenes and, recently, has been upping the death count. He'll still take any chance to save even the most useless of background characters though.

Incurring ridiculous battle damage and being just fine (like Khoza did) only gets worse. Everyone in One Piece is a damage sponge to the extreme.

Yeah, I dont really give a fuck but it's like. Why bother saving Pell/Ingaram/Kohza etc? They're not major characters. Whatever! It's still fun.

I like that Nami and Usopp have that talk about being regular people and then Usopp gets every bone in his body broken but manages to heal in about 2 hours.

I watched the anime crew eps and then re-read the last two chapters and it was a lot better.  I think this could have been handled somewhat better, but I'm not sure how.

I see each character arc as being about 4-5 parts

part 1 = 1st manga cover, 1st anime ep
part 2 = 2nd manga cover, 2nd anime ep
part 3 = doesn't exist in anyform yet
part 4 = last 2 manga chapters and next chapter
part 5 = Some seem complete at part 4, but others seem like there might be more? 

I'm guessing after Marineford the anime will animate part 3 -> Luffy's flashback then do the current part 4 and beyond conclusions. 

It's pretty awkward, and sometimes important stuff happened in part 3 (Usopp actually getting strong and fighting back, Zoro meeting Mihawk, etc...).  But otoh, if the manga took the long route and covered the entire story for each character from start to finish it'd probably be 2 chapters a character and that would mean 4 months of this stuff before the story moved forward, which would be a bad thing.

The next few weeks of manga and what Oda does with the story structure should be interesting.  And I really hope the part 3s get animated so we can see them at some point.

Impel Down anime version is good marathon'd, but if you take it episode by episode it's slow. Especially compared to the manga, which has brisk fast pacing.

Anyways, fantastic episode.

They more likely will since the arc finished recently in the manga and they want some breathing room.

and since it looks like their gonna go in the flashback also the gap will be even shorter.

Watched it and it was interesting.

Nice way to start off the arc with the Linaege.



The RAW for Strong World is out and i don't mean a trailer or the Episode 0, the actual movie. Looks like there was a DVD screener of sorts and it got leaked.


Problem is because of that there is a Watermark with the word "SAMPLE" at the top left at all times.

Also not sure if any sub groups will use it since the actual DVD release is supposedly the end of August and they tend to go with those, plus they would have to take out the watermark.

we'll see if any decide to bite on this.

strong world sucked.  Fought really hard to stay awake through it all.  Outside a few funny jokes and a few mins of ok fights it was the same as the other OP filler movies: boring and completely generic.

Not worth watching unless you want to see Luffy shoot people with guns.

Although I have to admit I did enjoy cute nerd version Robin

Post by: Van Cruncheon on July 21, 2010, 05:31:58 PM
jimbei will PROBABLY be it -- the crew needs a helmsman, and he's been drawn SO many times steering the prison ship. he could be just a temporary member, but with this caimie's remark about the fishman karate dojo, we KNOW that that the inevitable forthcoming fishman island arc will involve said dojo, and that pretty much guarantees JIMBEI FLASHBACK LOL. lastly, he promised ace that he'd look after luffy, and he's a direct connection to ace for luffy for the rest of the series. AAAAAND a fishman would provide some real visual variety to an already crazy diverse crew. plus, a srs-face old dude compliments that cast better than an infatuated one-note gag setup character
Title: Re: Friday thread of why don't you read One Piece? (Seriously)
Post by: Bebpo on July 21, 2010, 05:35:15 PM
Yeah, Jimbei fits the cast.  Plus everyone likes him!  And he has way more variety in his attacks than Hancock.  Also helps that he can save fruit users when they fall in the ocean.

Hancock would get annoying.  She'd be like Sanji 2 and we don't need another Sanji fawning all the time.

Aokiji isn't going to be admiral. They're going to go with Akainu. With a bunch of pirates rioting due to Whitebeard's death and pretty much the renewal of the great pirate era, who would want a fuddy duddy peace loving tree hugger as the admiral of the marines? Akainu is going to do anything to get that position.

The Blackbeard scene was hilarious and awesome.

Good to know that Blackbeard is still an awesome fun character like Luffy and he's not gonna be boring and overpowered like some shounen baddies coughcough*aizen/sasukue*coughcough

I like how he has sentimental attachment to his little raft, which is why he's always using it :P


It's crazy how many characters are being setup to actually be important major characters down the line.  Donflamingo is crazy psycho, Traflagar actually seems like he'll be a good rival to Luffy, Akainu is taking over the marines and making them fearsome, the other rookies are all doing their own thing.  Impressive stuff.  There's so much story Oda is going to be able to get out of these characters and that's not even including all the new characters he'll introduce in the new world arcs.  This 2nd half of the series is going to be LONG and full of OH SHIT moments I think.  But I guess when the first half went over 10 years of weekly chapters...you got a lot of time to cover things :)

Cool that all the support crew are going to get real major powerups and not just one new attack or something.  But actually changes to their character fight styles for the next half of the manga.

Also really like the flashbacks.  This is the perfect way to really tie things together from the first half.  Reintroduce the character pasts, connections to luffy and their goals.  If there was anytime to kind of pause and recap a bit to pull everyone together as a crew, this would be the best spot. 

It's so hard reading this part of OP at a weekly pace because there's just SO MUCH to cover that it's going to take a couple months of these transition chapters before we settle down into normal storytelling again.  But considering how much Oda is making use of each page and conveying lots of info every week, it's about the best you can do and you really wouldn't want him to rush through this stuff since it's important.  It'll take months but I think it'll be a strong transition arc when looked back on in volume form.

:bow Oda :bow2

Post by: MCD on August 05, 2010, 04:42:16 AM
Gaffers saying "oh why did he run away when he has two devil fruits blahblahblah" really don't understand Blackbeard.

Reason why he survived this long and still kicking ass is because he doesn't give a shit, fight when you can, beg and run when you can't. and of course, it's part of his charm as a character.

I don't think you know what filler means - especially when the same content was covered in the manga - but Shanks having another arm was :rofl

In fact, the way the manga handled the Ace flashback was spotty. The anime did a MUCH better job.

Quote
The 59th volume of Eiichiro Oda's One Piece  pirate manga sold 1.853 million copies to top Oricon's weekly comic sales chart during the August 2-8 week. It set the record for highest first-week sales since Oricon began releasing its Japanese book ranking charts in April of 2008. The previous record-holder was the 57th volume, which sold 1.691 million copies in its first week in March. The 10 latest One Piece volumes, dating back to the 50th volume in June of 2008, have each sold over 1 million copies in the first week.

Quote
One Piece #59 already set the overall manga record for most copies in its first print run with 3.2 million copies.

Most of the upgrades are obvious, except for maybe Robin. Her ability seems limited and she already feels maxed out so even though she's in a good place I don't see how 2 years can make much of a difference.

Yeah no doubt she has room for growth but the potential seems small in comparison to the others

I'm most interested in seeing how Sanji transforms after 2 years because he's been my least favorite character. The dude is always being overly chivalrous and trying to steal Zoro's glory but if he maintains his okama ways even after reuniting that would mean a total 180 for his personality and that's why I'm skeptical - I just can't believe Oda will change him so completely.

You could start off at chapter 215 in the manga if you want to start where you left off from the anime. Only thing you would miss out on are the minor character side stories on the covers.

If by "recent" you mean December 2008  :smug

That statement has always been sketchy and vague though. It could mean anything from Jimbei joining the crew to a mere hint at the rogue's gallery Luffy would collect in Impel Down. Remember, this is the man who said one of the strawhats would die within the upcoming year only for the fucking ship to break 2-3 years later.

Apparently Oda has only been home once in the last year. The poor (horribly rich) man is going to one day work himself to death and no one will realize until Jump starts printing blank pages a few weeks later.  :'(

Also, we need to make comics based on how Luffy would react if he met a group of vegetarians.

Post by: Cindi Mayweather on January 24, 2011, 03:46:07 PM
Agreed. They skimped out and only made his mustache cut off in half rather than half of his face. Akainu also delivered a Hellbound attack straight to his gut with fire spewing out, and Whitebeard got up and did the aforementioned attack on Akainu.

For all the flaws in the way the anime has presented this arc, one thing they flat out nailed was Whitebeard. In fact, I'd say the anime does a better job at making him look badass than the manga did.

Post by: Cindi Mayweather on March 09, 2011, 12:29:36 PM
Nami vs Hodi would be better because she was weak when they fought Arlong. Her defeating Hodi, basically Arlong 2.0, and overcoming her past ties with the Arlong pirates would be a great read. Zoro vs Hodi has no story benefit.

I'm positive we will see Nami vs Hodi.

Seeing Nami, considered one of the weaker Strawhats, taking on a demon like that would show just how much the Strawhats have improved in the past two years.

Also, Usopp vs Decken.

Zoro will go against that venomous Octopus fishman. He ALWAYS goes against the swordsmen and ONLY the swordsmen.

That`s why I think it will end up being `boss` Jimbie.  He will have to fight for honours sake because the SH attacked people he considers under his protection.  We will find this out when Nami talks to him.

Statement from Shueisha.

beelzebub started out really strong, but really started to veer into yucky fanservice country with the current enlil arc. the call of duty 4 riffs failed the lol test. it's still a good manga, but it's hitting that WHERE DO WE GO NOW phase of most long-running shonen manga, and which one piece has avoided because oda is a god. it's still better than fairy tail, though!

I'm sure the flashback will last maybe one more chapter and I agree, this is far better than Luffy's flashback.

Seeing more fishmen/merfolk is awesome and I think the fishmen island bit it's a nice parallel to Japan, and its history of isolation and xenophobia.

That was a good chapter.  Liked how they brought together all these characters from the arc and how the ending turned out different than you'd expect.  If Oda doesn't screw up, the next chapter could be pretty good and give the main arc and everyone involved a little more depth.

What.  This chapter was way better than the Fisher Tiger death chapter.  The Fisher Tiger half of the flashback was one of the weaker ones like the Luffy flashback.  I thought the Queen/Princess/Princes/Van Decker half was pretty good.
Title: Re: Friday thread of why don't you read One Piece? (Seriously)
Post by: Cindi Mayweather on May 25, 2011, 05:46:03 PM
No, this chapter felt anticlimatic. Fisher Tiger is a great character and his fall was great because the entire chapter undoes his legend and tears down the myth of Fisher Tiger while expressing the reality of human-fishman relations. We go in thinking that Arlong was a dick, but it turns out Arlong was quite right all along in regards and you can't help but feel sorry for him, the Fisher Tiger side of the arc helps establish this. Queen Otohime is boring. The only thing she does is ask for signatures and shit. Boring character, boring resolve. So a Celestial Dragon shoots the very same mer-woman who saves his life? The queen thinks a bunch of papers will change their situation? What a naive idiot. The entirety of the Otohime side of the flashback sucks.

Fisher Tiger 4 lyfe.
Title: Re: Friday thread of why don't you read One Piece? (Seriously)
Post by: Cindi Mayweather on May 25, 2011, 05:56:33 PM
I think Shirahoshi is interesting but that's it.

That said, the greatest thing about this flashback is both Fisher Tiger and how it has managed to humanize (lol) one of the most ferocious villains in the series. I actually REALLY feel for Arlong now after this flashback. I mean, I did during the Sabaody arc, but now I can't help but really like him and how he constantly hovers over a vast array of greys. I mean, sure, what he did was unforgivable. But the more you learn about his history, the more you kinda think he was a man (lol) who suffered much and ended up going too damn far.

This arc also has made me REALLY like Jimbei.

I don't understand how you can say Otohime is more interesting than Fisher, but whatever.

Hodi is kind of hmmm.  Oda had to power him up because he'd be no match for Luffy at normal strength.  But he also gave him his weakness so the drugs will probably be what makes him lose and not Luffy's awesome abilities which would be kind of lame tbh.

Steroids...

Good one, Oda.

Isn't it a little late to be complaining about this though?  Oda brought them into this arc months ago and we knew it'd be the only way Hodi would be competitive since otherwise he's just an Arlong level punk.

Although it's kind of lame that the last boss arc where Luffy actually won was a similar situation with dracula guy being wimpy until he took his POWER UP and became giant super boss.

We need Luffy to start fighting more Villians around or higher than his level natural who he beats through skill+luck+nakama+courage

No chapter next week :(

Kind of lame that it's all up to Luffy to destroy everyone.  I mean they take half of Luffy's crew, Jinbe, Princess, Shark, princess, king out of the picture.  Basically building it up so EVERYTHING is on Luffy's shoulders.

Just seems a bit much drama.  Guess Oda wants to show off Luffy's upgrades some more.

"There can only be ONE PIRATE KING"

Probably the most generic/cheezy line in the entire manga so far, but eh I guess it works.

Chapter was good, though that was a weird page to end on.  Luffy is haki superior as shown over and over again.  Jinbe's "figure something out" was lolol

I hope some of the other crew start fighting soon.  I want to see the ZORO 2.0 battle.

I'm guessing Van Decken's boat arrives next chapter since that will break things up and split people in a way to setup fights.  And will keep Hodi from Luffy until the end.

yeah, caribou's definitely a bigger danger than hodi, who is gonna get annihilated. actually, the new fishmen pirates are gon' get raped. arc needs a REAL threat to test luffy

besides, we ALL know how this plays out

strawhats trash hodi and co., show off their new abilities
shirahoshi summons sea kings to stop van der decken and the noah from ploughing into fishman island
jinbei joins straw hats as a symbol of merman pride and merman/human relations (thus honoring the dream of otohime) alongside the next pirate king

BUT WHERE IS CARIBOU???? ODDAAAAAAA!!!!!

Post by: Bebpo on September 21, 2011, 01:48:54 PM
Good chapter.  Nice mix of comedy, action, with fast pacing.

One of OP's problems that it has to overcome at this point is the crew is too large.  If Oda wanted to give a full in-depth fight for each crew member you'd have 3 months of crew fights and nothing happening everytime the crew got into a fight, which is what Bleach does, and what is awful pacing.

So instead I think Oda's solution, if this arc is any indication, is he's going to rush through most crew member fights quickly while moving the plot at the same time each week.  I doubt we're going to see any in-depth fights besides a final fight of Luffy vs. Hodi and who knows if we'll even get that.  Ever since Marineford or even Impel Down the fights have been short and it's been more of a focus on the adventure and plot with constant action than being a shounen fighting manga.  Wax Luffy vs. Poison guy was the last real full chapter+ 1 on 1 fight iirc.

The anime will probably stretch all this stuff out like I hear they did with Marineford.

Anyhow, Brooke was great in this chapter "I'm already dried up!"  hehehe

Also the sub-commanders are not bad in this arc.  The guy whose only power is to camoflauge on the ground while people trample on him is hilarious.  "HEADBUTTING YOUR FOOT"   :lol

This chapter sucked.  Having all the fights happen at the same time and ordering it like this made all the fights and all the enemies in this arc pointless.  Oda should have just done short individual fights if it was going to be like this. 

At least the Luffy stuff is ok.  But this arc was a lot better until all the fighting started.

I think the Hodi stuff is fine.  Not great, but fine.  Arc had some good parts like when Zoro one shotted Hodi underwater and The strawhats entrance to the plaza saving the king and then proceeding to take out 100,000 guys in 30 seconds.  The Luffy fighting underwater on the back on the prince guy was nice.

It's mainly just this fodder sub-dudes battle that should have been a cool way to show off the crew's new abilities but was just stupid instead.

The Strawhats have had trouble with enemies since Arabasta. The past few years, they've been getting raped. Over. And over. And over. And over.

And you expect the newest arc, post-time skip, to have challenging enemies after the SH's get new abilities?

Baka. Pure, 100% baka.

Ok, that was cool.

Big Mam character design is closer to something from Berserk than One Piece.  Some of her henchmen look cool too.  And I'm sure they're all REALLY STRONG.  So going directly to this as the next arc should be pretty great for the strawhats.

Also the idea that Luffy might start building up his own territory now that he's a big deal is cool.  Will make people respect him more and get him closer to being one of the 4 emperors and then eventually the pirate king.  I wonder if he takes out Big Mam if the title of 4th emperor passes to him.  Though I think he could lose and have to come back to fight her later.  Or something else could happen, Oda usually pulls a something else.

Well from a writing standpoint there's only 3 reasons I can think of as to why Oda didn't have Jinbe join right away:

1.  He's too strong and Oda wants to leave him out of the crew for a few more arcs until they've grown stronger.

2.  For dramatic value where he'll appear throughout the manga helping them out but not actually join until like the final arc.

3.  He's going to die in the meantime (for instance Blackbeard kills him and pisses off Luffy).

well, this answered the jinbei questions. jinbei will join the crew officially when the mugiwara flag replaces big mam's in this new arc's inevitable conclusion. given pekoms' bounty and the way he took out caribou, the "big mam" arc will probably wind up being the ACTUAL first REAL test of the straw hats' new strength after establishing the easy takedown of the new fishman pirates and hodi/decken.

Crocodile : Big Mom : Grand Line : New World

I'm thinking the Big Mom arc will be continuous string, island after island, just like how Crocodile was. The first part of the grand line was entire build up for Alabasta: Laboon, Whiskey Peak, Amazon Lily, even Drum Island, and finally...Alabasta.

They won't go straight for Big Mom, because like, that makes no sense. I expect them to encounter Smoker right when they leave Fishman island and Jinbei will probably go with them.

How is this sexism? Who is more likely to become a pirate? A man or a woman? Fuck. This liberal guilt bias on SA is sometimes stiffening.

Much more, you can argue that ALL THE WOMEN IN ONE PIECE HAVE D CUPS but at the same time, the dudes are just as extreme. Almost every dude is standing at least like 7 feet tall in this series, in very common occurrences, with bulging muscles and crap.

Quote from: Himuro
My overall point is that I find the males just as ridiculous as the women, in a completely different way. Sure, lots of women in women have hourglass bodies, but I mostly take issue with the word sexist as being a main descriptor.

Quote from: Himuro
The liberal guilt thing mostly came from how I notice a lot of times, people are trying to put a label on something they disagree with.

"You kill a bunch of blacks in Resident Evil 5? This game is so racist."

"Ashley in Mass Effect doesn't trust my alien party members? Racist!"

It eventually becomes some groan worthy tiresome bid to seemingly be politically correct, 100 percent of the time. It can be pretty blatant. I'm never sure if they're actually offended or if they're trying to come off as offended for others because they think it's the right thing they should do.

Quote from: Zorak
Himuro please shut up you idiot. You are so utterly ignorant of this kind of shit it's kind of unreal.

I wouldn't say One Piece is sexist. I would, however, say Dragon Ball is sexist. In One Piece, female characters get shit done. In Dragonball, the only reason for their existence is to be ogled and show pantsu/tit jokes. 'isms' such as racism and sexism are about intent.

You can say "all the women in One Piece are either super models or ugly", but can't you say the same the exact thing about the male characters? The biggest difference is how they are drawn, and that's mainly attributed to the fact that Oda can't draw women very well.

Zorak says the male equivalent would some dude's junk bulging out of his pants, but I don't think so. I remember when One Piece Musou was revealed, these fangirls in the audience creamed their pants when Zoro turns around to be slashed by Mihawk.

To be honest, I'd much rather have a female's perspective, than another white male on the internet has a victim complex who has probably never been discriminated against in his entire life.

OP females are fine, the only real complaint is that Oda can only draw skinny girls with big tits of giant ugly women.  But that's his art ability and not some inherent sexism in the story.

New world ain't no pushover

Now we see why fishman island existed, to give the crew one chance to flaunt their upgrades as all powerful badasses before they got knocked to the ground again in the new world.  But I like how Oda is showing that while the new world is tough, the crew is still strong enough to take it on and not weaklings that are gonna be overpowered and keep losing like the end of the grand line.  He does a good job creating a satisfying balance of power.
Title: Re: Friday thread of why don't you read One Piece? (Seriously)
Post by: Cindi Mayweather on February 08, 2012, 04:19:12 PM
Now we see?

It was pretty obvious why Oda chose to do that arc that way while it was going on. Why would anyone expect the strawhats to have trouble when we haven't seen them in 2 years BECAUSE they were so weak? You'd have to be stupid to expect the first arc after their reunion to have any challenge as you're missing the entire point of the arc. It's not satisfying not seeing the entire cast for 2 years, only to show up from a 2-year training arc, and still end up being weak. Who the hell wants that? You want to see the characters BEAST on people for a little bit.

Jinbe, Whitebeard, Ace, Hancock have been confirmed playable beyond the main cast.

Magellan, Sentomaru, the 3 Admirals are all confirmed bosses and apparently Enel is in there somewhere.  Looks like Garp will be in too.  Seems like an Impel Down stage has been confirmed, so right now every single major arc in OP from beginning until the end of Marineford seems to be in it along with their antagonists, although Thriller Bark hasn't been shown yet.

Seems pretty meaty.  Could be a freaking awesome game for us One Piece fans.
