I know, it fucking sucks when the writer decides that the hero (or one of the heroes) should control their demonic powers.
Same goes for Hollow Ichigo and Kyuubi Naruto. Rational decision making is for pussies.
Science and medicine happened.
Ichigo is arguably more of a monster now than he ever was in the past.
Gaining control of Zangetsu means gaining control of his core ability.
And he's not above brutally murdering someone who opposes his ideals. Ulquiorra, Ginjo and Tsukishima are proof of that.
>If I eat a rumble ball I can change to a faster/stronger forme for a limited time, isn't that cool?
nice power with limits
>lol guys I can change form at will, no balls, that shit's gay
he looks so much better now, more cute and kawaii
He still needs a ball to change into Monster Chopper.
And it is actually really cool. He is the only one so far who has used science to directly manipulate his Devil Fruit Powers. Not even Caesar has done something like that to himself.
Ulquiorra was raped by his hollow while Ichigo himself was unconscious.
Ichigo was so honarable that when he came back, he offerd Ulu to cut his arm and leg off, so they would be equal.
Ginjo got his ass kicked by Ichigo, but it wasn't all that violent.
And I don't even remember Ichigo ever injuring Tsukushima.
Never mind the last part, I just remembered Ichigo cut Tsukushima's arm off.
bottom should be his standard forme post-time skip, just with shorter horns
they were all too similar so oda wanted to make each forme unique
Oda let Chopper become the mascot character.
All his timeskip forms have been direct downgrades except maybe his base deer form
And last, but not least.
What the FUCK happened?
Something out of Shadow of the Colossus
chopper makes no sense
I mean, he has the human-fruit, his powers should be human-based.
why does a power that gives you the ability to turn into a human give you the power to grow your antlers?
That is clearly a deer-fruit thing, and they made it a big point that nope, it's a deer with the human fruit, not the other way around
Also, with all other Zoans their half-form is the strongest. But Chopper's half-form is a weak piece of shit.
YOU WERE A DEER ONCE CHOPPER, A DEER
The post-timeskip forms really are fucking terrible
Ichigo cut Tsukishima's arm off and had the full intention of letting him bleed out, but before that he was going to maul him some more.
Ichigo also takes the full blame for Ulquiorra's death and he's right in doing so because him and the hollow are the same.
>Treating his characters well
Franky, Chopper and Nami haven't had a solo fight since CP9
Robin hasn't EVER had a real solo fight, beating up a fucking priest in skypia doesn't count. (And this is a fucking crime on Oda's part because her ability COULD make for creative fights but all he does now is COMBINE MAKE BODY PART BIGGER TO HIT THINGS)
Franky and Brook still haven't been allowed their own fights beyond the arcs they were introduced, but at least it looks like Franky is finally getting that rectified with this arc.
Fact : If you aren't Ussop, Luffy, or Zoro you're gonna get the shaft. Sanji used to not be in this category but since the timeskip he's just been there to wiff everyone or be a joke.
These character designs suck. Glad I never bothered with this series.
As much as i like One Piece, this is sadly so much true.
he doesn't even treat the main 3 well
>>Implying Sanji is still Main3 material
Sanji isn't MAIN 3.
Ussop is more Main 3 now than Sanji.
Isn't chopper's rumble ball invention actually grand?
He uses it because he's terrible in combat otherwise.
Imagine all the insane as shit Zoan people getting a taste of that.
Imagine if people in the new world found out and they forced chopper to work for them or give up the recipe.
how the fuck does a DF enhancing medicine work anyway.
He was until time skip. He still is because of plot armor, Oda will always put him after Zoro even if he doesn't win a fight never again.
He has forgotten his roots.
Forgotten...dr Hiluluk even?
Franky's gonna get a 3 vs 1 right now so that kinda makes up for it.
Why doesn't chopper invent rumble balls for the other df users in the crew
Technically, Robin and Chopper are still salvageable since they both still have an arc they need to go through if the Chapter Title pattern is any indication.
>oda turned chopper into the mascot
aaaaaand not picking it back up
only affects zoan
didn't they say something about how it disrupted the "devil fruit waves"? Or am I thinking of Kairoseki now?
He mentioned that
Isn't gonna change the fact that Robin is either gonna be support for Ussop's fight or get KO'd.
>That fucking kung fu form
Fuck you Oda. You could have made it cool. You had the chance. Fuck you so much.
Nope, that's what they said.about Rumble Balls.
>But Chopper's half-form is a weak piece of shit.
Brain Point isn't his half-form, his half-form is that abominable snowman looking one.
Nope, that's his human form.
>Fights are all that matter
Franky has gotten a ridiculous amount of spotlight since the timeskip.
The only crewmates who have fallen out of the spotlight are Nami, Chopper and Brook, who are all going to be the focus of Zo when we first get there anyway.
nami is the fanservice character now
>The only crewmates who have fallen out of the spotlight are Nami, Chopper and Brook
You know even though they are all cowards, them not even attempting to save themselves from Don Flamingo really bothered me.
Chopper is going to be kidnapped and forced to make rumble balls for Kaido's crew. Mega Kaido will set sail and kill Big Mom with his newfound power.
or...the final battle of the Kaido arc will be Kaido vs. Chopper 1v1 for the title of king of the beasts.
You forgot Robin.
... no, wait, she was never in the spotlight to begin with
Chopper is One Piece's cute mascot, you see merchandise for him everywhere in Japan. Imagine if Pikachu could turn into a huge monster, it's a similar case.
She just had some stuff with Joy Boy and Poseidon, she was hanging around Luffy for half of Punk Hazard, and the current arc is building up to a big fight with her and Usopp against Doflamingos most important crewmate.
She hasn't gotten a 1 on 1 fight or any huge character development since the timeskip, but she's definitely been in the picture.
Fishmen Island okay, but it was the ancient history stuff, which seems to be the ONLY thing she does. I honestly don't remember her doing absolutely nothing in Punk Hazard. In Dressrosa it got a little better, but mostly she's just... there. It's sad, i love Robin, but Oda isn't using her as much. If the fight Oda's building up actually happens, I would be so happy.
>but it was the ancient history stuff, which seems to be the ONLY thing she does.
Her story arc is about her discovering the truth of the Void Century, and her role on the ship is being the fucking historian. What do you expect her big scenes to be about?
Luffy and Zoro gets a million fights because that's their job. Characters like Nami and Robin don't need a giant fight every arc because their development is connected to running the ship and the poneglyphs.
Reminder that Zoro one shot Hody Jones and is currently the strongest Strawhat. Hell I wouldn't be surprised if he one shot Doffy.
The BIG ones yeah, but not ALL of it. She could contribute in the plans, decision-making (she is supposed to be one of the more intelligent and experienced of the crew..)
It's only that she has more abilities than being able to read poneglyphs, and I would be happy if they were used
Didn't Nami have a solo fight with the soap bitch from the CP)?
what the fuck does he keep in there?
HAS SCIENCE GONE TOO FAR?
