You know what time it is
Monet is dead.
or she'll come back in a cover story with Vergo
Do both of them only have a single reason to live without Doffy ?
They'll find one. We'll get a similar coverstory to Miss Goldenweek's Color Trap I bet.
Monet tries to save Vergo from the Marines or something and then she'll become a legit kindergardener
Seems totally legit yeah
>his antlers coming off when he's scared
awww i missed this
She's the scariest character of the whole manga si far
That's not Hakuba
>Bon-chan will never return
>Sogeking will never return
>Mr Prince will never return
P-please Oda, the pain is too much
>Bon-chan will never return
>Sogeking will never return
He's in your heart
>Mr Prince will never return
no shit, that was only a one time joke
Just reminding everyone that we still don't know shit about haki.
What more do we need to know?
No one can see Hakuba. And the ones who can, don't have reason to be afraid
How Conquerors haki can be used to damage surroundings and the difference between black haki and the invisible type.
It's monday, isnt' this a bit too early?
Conquerer's Haki can't damage surroundings.
>inb4 Shanks doing cracks on Whitebeard's ship
yes it does some little cracks, but it can't be used offensively. Shanks presence is simply that strong. It's just like how DBZ characters create craters when powering up.
Though knowing the difference between black Haki and invisible Haki would be nice.
I always assumed conqueror's haki causes some kind of physical pressure that simply weighs upon everything around the user, and those who can't withstand the pressure simply pass out. Sort of like passing out due to G-forces.
And invisible haki = black haki. It was just reconned so that readers would better be able to tell when haki was being used. If you really need a plot explanation for it you can tell yourself that only users WITH haki can PERCEIVE haki, and so it is only now that it is becoming visible to the Straw Hats.
best gif ever
it fits so well
>And invisible haki = black haki. It was just reconned so that readers would better be able to tell when haki was being used.
Doflamingo clearly used Haki to defend against Sanji and it was still invisible. I think it's only black when Oda wants to emphasize that this attack now has Haki imbued to it, otherwise he'll just keep it invisible
Do you ever think we will see Franky Skywalk again?
Nah there is a difference. Luffy used it to destroy that pacifista and in the same volume (IIRC) used the black haki.
>yes it does some little cracks, but it can't be used offensively. Shanks presence is simply that strong.
If it does cracks just from his presence, how does that not translate to more damage when he is trying
He was already using it. People on Whitebeard's ship passed out after all. CoC is nothing more but a strong presence
Also, doesn't he say Colour of Arms: Hardening? You wouldn't give it a subtitle if it was the same stuff.
Yeah,there is a clear difference.It isn't an indicator of Haki use,think of it like a specialist skill. Lel at people trying to shit on Oda with the Haki out of the ass crap.
confirmed from ramen when
You're not ready yet
You're not asking the rights questions..
He said "Hardening" because he's a rubber man.
He didn't say it when he took down the pacifista and he wasn't black there. There is a difference between the two types.
Usually about 24 hours from now is when spoilers start getting generated by people and real ones are released.
Yeah one is visible, the other isn't.
There has to be more than that. I presume one is purely defensive while the other can be used offensively.
It seems like one form of CoA is a sort of force-field, while the other is hardening ones body, both for offense and defense.
oda just hasnt thought about making haki black yet
and ruffys haki punch before was just a mistake
he had to distinguish ruffys normal attacks from those with haki
thats why they are black
sometimes there are mistakes
like choppa eating a rumble ball in order to become fluffy when they went down to fishman island
-Announcer of colloseum explains rules of final round: All participants enter the ring at the same time and have to fight for the spot in the middle, where Diamante will await them
-Burgess still thinks that Lucy is Luffy
-Cavendish wakes up and starts fighting with the nurses demanding to see Straw Hat
-He then is thrown down the pit
-Meanwhile at Toy House: Bastille have surrounded the pirates and demand for Franky to be handed over

-"This business only concerns the Don Quixote family!" (KYAA SO HARDBOILD!!), Franky is impressed
-Down in the factory Usopp and Robin are standing in front of a gate, Robin examines
-"It seems you can't open it like a regular door"
-"EH? Then how are we going to enter?"
-"Dwarf explains activate a certain switch to open it and the only other way is from the colloseum. But Soldier-san is already taking care of it, so they just need to wait
-Usopp and Robin salute a very large shadowy guard walking by. He's carrying the Toy Soldier. dwarves do the Enel face
-Cut to Tamago, he's talking to someone on the Denden Mushi
-"Yes, we have captured Caesar Clown"
-"The Straw Hats have also been taken care off"
-Shot of all Straw Hats and Momo unconscious and chained up
-end of chapter
He explained that sometimes it was a rumble ball candy that Chopper likes.
Also, that mistake was not corrected until three volumes later. You do not make such mistakes within single volumes which is where mistakes are corrected.
confirmed by who?
One is force-field type, the other is hardening type.
This is actually plausible.
It was believable right up until Tamago and all the SH's. First, who would he be on the den-den mushi to, we already saw it was Big Mom's actual huge fucking ship. Secondly, all the SH's being beaten up is a complete dead end, unless there is Brook soul sue bullshit.
Sanji being jobbed? Right.
It sets up the next arc.
It's about time he starts doing it offscreen, I was getting tired of seeing it.
Needs more Fujitora suffering because of the many wounds he sustained in his short fight with Zoro and Sanji jobbing against random Big Mom crew members.
You have spoilers on that too?
I am Oda
>the weakling trio will never get written out of the story
Law's crew might comes to the rescue
Or Brook shenanigans
I don't know, Law's crew are probably equal in power to the SH's that are on board.
It's a ship fight in One Piece, more likely they just Coup de Burst'd out of there. Hasn't every single instance of ship fighting ended in that
Sanji has taken care of Pekoms.
Brook and Ceasar (handcuffs are gone) hold off Tamago
Tamago reports that Pekoms is down so Big Mom says she is sending in someone to get the job done.
Sanji looks sternly at the water
Senor Pink tells Bastille to fuck off claiming Franky is his job
Marines disagree and claim they will arrest Pink too if he gets in their way
Franky radical beams the shit out of those marines and Pink thanks him
Hakuba is ripping the shit out of those medical people. He has some gas tank attached to him
He's heading into the arena
He starts taking on the four contestants but they all block or dodge
Diamante dodges but declares an exception and allows him to take part in the final
>The crew will never go back to just Luffy, Zoro and Nami
>Nami will never be cute again
I like the idea of knock out gas being used to keep him as the dominant personality
That is a pretty cool idea, would be good if he did go attack the other guys and we actually saw some of Sabo's fighting style.
MANji will never return. He can never recover from Fisherman Islands shame.
it's too bad, he had some stellar moments.
Actually we haven't had much of the crew have any stand out moments in a while with the exception of Franky. Usopp, Nami, Chopper, and even brook haven't done shit since the timeskip
Brook defeated Jora. Usopp and Nami captured Caesar, Baby 5 and Buggalo
Still waiting for Chopper to go Arm Point again
the nami and usopp thing was boring as fuck, generic attacks. I want to see them DO something cool, it doesn't even have to be a fight
I thought it was cool

end of chapter
Usopp and Nami opened their attack by saying "if it's a weakened person in a vulnerable state, we'll attack them!" I get that it was sort of in character but the way it was articulated was fucking horrible.
Nami has sat on a boat for the last year (lol)
and Usopp has regressed from a confident person who snipes henchman like it's nobody's business (see Usopp vs. Caesar's Henchman) to a guy who freaks out at 2 fodder characters and requires the dwarves to beat them. Not to mention his whole treatment with the dwarves has been unusually scummy so far. I know he's a coward (though he wasn't really supposed to be after the timeskip... Oda's been flipflopping too much), but he keeps considering how to abandon the dwarves and leave them to their death and it's super shitty. Fuck Usopp. used to be my favorite Strawhat.
>Usopp has regressed from a confident person who snipes henchman like it's nobody's business
Usopp was never like that. This is just your fantasy Usopp
nami's lightning attack wasn't anything that we haven't seen a thousand times and usopps macguffin weapon is lame as hell.
me too, Usopp had the most opportunity for character growth and he's actually regressed
he spent almost all of Fishman Island displaying how confident he was and then during Punk Hazard he sniped Caesar's guys (this is not a fantasy; it literally happened you fuckass). Now in Dressrosa he sees two fodder and freaks the fuck out.
Usopp's character is definitely inconsistent, dude.
>no sanji cries and dies spoiler
0/10 try again
Usopp also freaked out at Caesar's henchmen. Usopp also freaked out at Vander Decken's ship. Usopp also freaked out at the Dragon and the thought of going to Punk Hazard. Usopp is still a coward even if he likes to act tough now.
there's a difference between a huge ghost ship, a big fucking dragon and a mysterious island. these are clearly frightening things. but when there are fodder henchman who are clearly weaker than him, it's clearly in opposition to his character post-timeskip.
I'm not saying he should be Zoro-tier confident, but oda clearly established during Fishman Island that Usopp was nowhere near as much of a chicken.
also when did he spaz out at Caesar's henchman (unless we're talking about the centaurs, which can once again be filed under spooky/comedic relief)
He freaked out at Caesar's henchmen when he was searching for the seastone cuffs
What scene are you even talking about? You're complaining that Usopp freaks out about the thought of fighting Doflamingo and you say that some mysterious island is scarier than that?
I'm talking about these two scenes.
I'm talking about fodder. Usopp DID NOT freak out at Caesar's hencman when looking for the cuffs. Look at the first link.
But then like 40 chapters left he's being a little bitch at the sight of two fodder.
There's a disparity. Also read my text for fuck's sake. I never said Usopp being scared of Doffy is regressive; I was talking purely about fodder. Dumbass.
Nice try bitch. Look up the scene when he first enters the room you idiot and you see Usopp getting scared.
I seem to recall him standing outside that room for quite a while because he was scared shitless
how is he getting scared
Some guy on 2ch who goes by the name of "私はモネのようです。生きている。" just posted this and the thread exploded. Gut said goodby and deleted the thread.
サンジは Pekoms の世話をします。
小川 (手錠） はなくなっているシーザーたまごオフに保持します。
たまごは、ビッグママは彼女が仕事を得るために誰かに送信言うので Pekoms がダウンしているを報告します。
彼は 4 人の競技者を撮影開始しますが、彼らすべてをブロックまたはをかわす
ディアマンテ ごまかし しますが、例外を宣言し、彼の決勝戦に参加することができます。
I was reading it though google translate and it seemed incoherent.
Even if you consider this scene, he's not being a little pansy, collapsing on the ground and exclaiming "Two fodder! I give up!!!!!"
In fact his dialogue here doesn't even suggest he's really that scared. More like surprised that he encountered so many goons when all he was looking for is some cuffs.
i guess oda decided that putting him above the rest of the team was a bad idea
cant say hes wrong
>That last line
He's literally hiding behind a boulder
You clearly have no idea how Usopp's character works. In the scene you're crying about Usopp gets scared because he just got discovered while doing an operation he was already scared about to do.
In this scene he walks into a commotion while searching for something and still hides until they forget about him.
Point is: Usopp was never the badass fanfic character you imagined him to be. He was always a coward with fears of a regular human.
>zoro isn't as powerful as luffy
>the marines don't see him as 'the vice-captain'
Why is Kinemon so based?
God damn I like him so much, I hope he joins
>Sanji keeps on jobbing
Confirmed for legit
Is smoker dead?
I swear to God if Roger ends up having had the Gomu Gomu no I will shit fury all over /a/
What's wrong with that?
If you seriously need to ask this, you need to leave this site
There is nothing wrong with it. You might as well get angry at him for being able to hear the voice of all living things.
No one fucking bothered to say "hey guys look it's the fucking guy with the fucking fruit the fucking pirate fucking king fucking had"
no but lolflamingo will be soon though
I guess he and Tashigi will appear in Wano again
nobody who saw roger fight (seriously) lived to tell the tale.
Everyone who saw him fight probably got killed.
Not even Garp?
It's already bad enough that the strawhat belonged to Roger but at least it kind of makes sense no one recognizing it since Roger ditched before he got famous and Shanks ditched it before he became a Yonko.
Garp only ever fought him with his long range cannonball throwing style, never got close enough to see why his cannonballs never sunk him and everybody assumed it was his ship
What's the saddest flashback and why is it this one?
Or garp is the only one who knew and would never tell anyone because if Luffy found out he'd never get to have his mean, lean, tag team marine dream.
the dog from episode 6. It really let you know what the anime was gonna be about
I thought Chouchou was going to join the crew...
>All I want
That dog had a name. Shushu. Never forget.
I don't even remember this completely. I need to re read skypea but too lazy to.
The only correct answer, I cried buckets
Arm point is now Kung-fu Point.
this one so much.
And then Sanji has the nerve to kick this guy's ass!
Good thing he has been jobbing ever since as punishment.
I was blown away how we were given the story early on and then shown what actually happened. Was awesome.
And you know this how?
What about Whitebeard, Sengoku or Shiki? They would've said something about it.
i just want to see sabos shinning smile
>Robin will never be your Imouto
But I still want to protect that dereshi!
Whitebeard never fought, just tried to adopt Rogers. Sengoku isn't on the front lines ever and Roger never gave a crap enough to fight shiki seriously. Just pulling shit out of my ass
Sanji vs Jyabura was such a great fight
He dealt with Jyabura much easier than Zoro dealt with Kaku
So let's say Kidd and his buttbuddies defeat Big Mom?
Which one of them would be the new Yonko
> implying they can
I don't think you can just replace a Yonkou like that. Blackbeard could only do it because he knew Whitebeard's territory by heart and only after two years people count him as one of the Yonkou.
If one of the other Yonkou falls, his territory will either fall in utter Chaos, or the other three Yonkou will try to snatch as many territories as they can
>Zoro hasn't had a serious fight since Enies Lobby
>Law has had two
Why is this allowed?
If not Roger, I'd like to see a cover story or something about the previous Gomu Gomu user.
You know exactly why. Its because Zoro said right at the fucking start of his rivalry with Mihawk he would NEVER lose to anyone else ever again and Oda intends to see it through to the climax. Which makes for absolute bullshit story telling because like you say he isn't allowed to have a single serious fight where he might be in a position to lose.
Me thinks Oda takes too much in mind from Toriyama and thinks Luffy should be the one to solve ALL of life's problems. Let Zoro or Sanji beat the villain for a change.
Won't they become the Sankou then?
Hasn't he lost numerous times though? To Rob Lucci at water 7. to Kuma, to Pacifista and Kizaru... Granted there were extenuating circumstances but the fact remains he has broken that promise already.
He hasn't lost to a swordfighter
He hasn't lost to an (actual) swordsman.
He doesn't lose to swordsmen, that's the main point.
>Ryuuma, not serious
>Law vs Vergo, serious
Zoro closeups have always been pretty damn badass though. I really started to notice them after his 'you goofed it up' zinger right after getting out of the handcuffs on Enies Lobby.
They're out, by Aohige

If Jinbei is gonna join, what the hell is his dream?
To unite men and fishmen
Kill the Tenryuubito.
To denounce the evils of the WG
to extend Fishmen's reach to the stars above
Have we seen any of the crew go all-out in a battle since the time-skip? It's long overdue at this stage.
When was the first time we saw someone go all out in the first half?
One Piece isn't really about the fights
That's more revolutionary than pirate king.
Probably... Alabasta? We have quite a while to wait then if he's following the same pattern.
>not about the fights
Luffy vs Krieg and Arlong, Sanji jobbed to Gin and had a hard fight with that one fish faggot only because he had to go underwater.
After that, yeah, nothing until Alabasta
Not really. The crew demonstrated their new moves against the New Fishman pirates, but none of them were really pushed.
And Punk Hazard didn't really have any strenuous fights for anybody, really.
Spoilers are out, very roughly translated using google translate.
>the warriors take place in the colleseum, they all stare each other down and the Announcer yells Go
>Cut to Sanji attacking big moms ship using his fire kick, Pekoms notes that he seems to be able to Fly
>Pekoms attacks Sanji in the sky, but Sanji is able to dodge A
>hakuba has awoken again and is being kept under by some sort of Kite
>He's wandering around trying to find the colleseum but bumps into Captain Kid
>Cut to Doflamingo and Fujitora notes the strawhats are drawning near, suddenly the wall explodes and Doflamingo laughs Fufufu
But it would be crazy if Kid alliance has the same idea as Law and is attacking Doffy to take out Kaidou
Is Koala's presence just to explain Sabo's abilities as a spectator?
While looking cute?
>No sabo fightning.
Sadly this is probably it.
Why do we keep posting fanfic in One Piece threads?
Smokey is the best imo, but I liked him better pre-TS.
Is anyone else looking forward to Luffy vs. Smokey?
Oh shit I just read on Ishuhui that there is no one piece chapter this week! It's on a break for seven months! Apparently Oda's wife wanted him to take a long break.
i guess they are targetting big mom..dunno why
this is probably it but i think it would be better if they targeted blackbeard just to get their shit stomped to show how powerful blackbeard is
First he needs to get some sort redemption, otherwise Luffy vs Smoker is gonna be pretty anticlimatic. Except if Smoker wins
So Kinemon is going to have the kitsune legendary Zoan, but there's going to be s running joke where his fruit is referred to as the fuku fuku no mi (clothes clothes fruit).
Alternatively, a meat logia will join
>Luffy/Law allied against Doffy/Kaido
>Kidd/Hawkins/Apoo allied against a Yonkou, likely Big Mom
>Drake serving under Kaido
Kinemon would be a really cool Nakama. After Punk Hazard I didn't really want him, but for some reason I really like him now, although he didn't do much.
Best Nakama would still be Caesar
It's going to be Coby vs Luffy.
Luffy was trained by Rayleigh, Smoker is self-taught but Coby has been trained by Garp the Motherfucking Fist.
CC would be great. Ship needs a swabbie. Just keep his heart somewhere and threaten him with harm to make him a slave for endless comic relief
I'd argue that he'd need to turn into a half-form to use the magic but Marco was regenerating even in his basic form so I guess it would fly.
Coby probably won't be Luffy level even at the end of the series. If at all.
that sounds like news for HxH
except 7 months would be a kindness
That makes Coby a lot weaker though. Has he actually ever been in a real fight? Unless he has real combat experience he will forever be weak shit. I remember when people thought Coby would wreck shit in the war
I think it makes more sense for people to go after either Big Mom or Kaido.
Blackbeard gatecrashed Marineford and somehow made it all about him. Plus he's a two-devil fruit nigga and has the great Xusasu Basasu so he's already known to be a powerful fucker.
Shanks turned up to the war and told everyone to go home so he's recognised as being a powerful fucker.
Doesn't seem like the other supernovas (aside Drake) have really seen much of the other two so they seem like easier targets.
Coby went from below Spandem levels to not fainting at shanks in a couple of months, he had a larger increase than luffy did. if he kept that up over the time skip he might be close
One Piece is now a monthly series with chapters containing 50 pages on average.
How do you react?
ok, that makes more sense narrative wise.
>implying Oda is pussy whipped
Coby is superman now.
No you can't apply that logic. He became half usable because he was trained by motherfucking Garp. That doesn't make Coby some super fighting genius. Helmeppo had almost the same growth, but he's still shit.
I'd rank Coby at a little below Tashigi at this point
Garp training helps, but to suggest that Coby has a better growth rate than Luffy is just ridiculous
It's almost definitely going to be Kinemon. He's already been with them for a while and will be for at least one more arc. He's got good chemistry with the rest of the crew. He's got a very useful devil fruit power for making disguises. He's a good fighter. I was rooting for Baby 5 for a while there, but I'll be happy with Kinemon too.
CC would fit so well. He is a logia, some kind of vegapunk 2.0, has a unique personality, is pretty strong but not M3 level, he could help Franky to make the Sunny even deadly,
Oh boy why is Oda wasting such a great character
angrily, thats a lot of missing pages
but it almost comes out to be that amount with all the breaks sometimes
OP is like the most stable manga i read and its weekly, so it would be terrible
>Using Rankyaku with your hands
That's just silly.
God I know what you mean. Happy with Kin though
I'd love it
I want to protect Tsuru
Who's the girl?
>Tsuru gets old and busted
>Shakky still hot
Why can't I apply that logic? Coby could have continued training with Garp, or Sengoku, or anyone else as I imagine Coby is now the face of the internal resistance in the marines to Akainu's absolute justice. Also Helmeppo didn't have the same growth, just the same training. Him and Coby had the same circumstances and Coby is still better which kinda proves that Coby is at least some sort of prodigy
>Your recent fanart made me seriously rethink Nami as a character (in the best way) and I relate to her so much better now! Thank you, thank you! Can you recommend some other fanart of Nami as gay that is, you know, intelligently done? I can't seem to find much that portrays her as anything other than a pornstar or a fashion doll.
Ah thank you I seemed to have converted a few people to the Church of Gay Nami which makes me extremely happy because I would even fight Oda on Nami being all about the ladies I tell you.
Sadly I’ve seen almost no fanart of Nami with ladies that isn’t really gross, there’s a lot of Nami x Robin out there that is just unfortunate hentai fap material for straight dudes. :\
>I would even fight Oda on Nami being all about the ladies
Tsuru just needs to wash herself with some fabric softener and everything will go back to being tight
Nami/Tashigi is a close second to Franky/Robin for my favorite pairing
Tashigi was a Petty Chief Officer before the time skip and is a New World Captain now.
Coby was a Petty Chief Officer before the time skip and is a captain now.
They both had the same growth, but Tashigi did it on her own, while Coby got Garp training. This pretty much shows that Coby isn't that special. Helmeppo is shittier than Coby, because he has less motivation than him. His growth was still incredible cause Garp
Same here. Except I'm more a Robin/Jinbei guy
I hate the anime so much, and I hate people who like it. It's those fucking brainless , tasteless sheeple that have ruined it. You put up with mediocrity and then that's all you get. Fuck you faggots One Piece deserves much more.
Who cares, the quality of the manga is consistent.
Ya but Coby is a captain after having turned against the Fleet admiral in front of the entire world. To anybody else that would be demoted to OP's version of antarctica but Coby is so good that he can't be ignored and still gets promotions. Tashigi, however, was probably just promoted because smoker was
Who cares, the quality of the manga is stable.
I really like Helmeppo.
He was a little shit that actually turned into an alright guy and is probably a lot stronger than his dad.
>Implying Coby wasn't promoted because he was Garp's special favorite student
Who cares, the quality of the manga is undeviating.
I think it's been pretty well-established that there is varying degrees of CoA, whether Oda anticipated it or not, that's how it has come to be.
CoA can be used passively to touch a logia's body. We didn't see Tashigi's sword turn black when she cut Monet. There was no reason to harden a cutting object when cutting a regular person. The base CoA was enough, just as it was when Luffy grabbed Smoker's arm (while Tashigi was in his body).
There is the stronger degrees of CoA that acts like literal armor, hardening the user's flesh. This doesn't give them the ability to touch a DF user's body, though--the base CoA already grants that. That's the haki we see Vergo and Luffy spam when fighting people they don't really need to use it to hit (Law in Vergo's case, Chinjao in Luffy's).
This is not complicated stuff.
Helmeppo is cool, but anyone thinking that he'll ever be Zoro level is just being delusional
>Luffy vs Coby
>Zoro vs Helmeppo
I wish they would just give up until the series is over and they can go DBZ kai on it and instead release those like animated comics or whatever that have slight animation but is basically just the panels from the manga with voice acting and music/sfx because nobody can say that the VA and OST isn't amazing
Who cares, the quality of the manga is unfluctuating.
Garp doesn't play favorites, he sent his own damn grandkid to space to toughen him up. you gotta deserve to be his favorite
Who cares, the quality of the manga is eternal.
Who cares, the quality of the manga is never-ending.
I'm so used to broken engrish trans I didn't even consider this
Oh fuck you
sorry i ran out of synonyms.
Under the current fleet admiral? Suuuuure...
Who cares, the quality of the manga is unwavering.
Why did Oda ruin everything with the time skip? One Piece has been so bad since then.
when did you start really liking one piece? most say around when sanji shows up. Give it an arc or two more before judging it.
honestly I agree with you.
its a shame that such a great series has such shitty animation. Despite being very expensive it would be awesome if they did a reboot of the series using the animation from Z or strong world
The Sogeking one is probably true:
When Usopp is facing Perona, he transforms into Sogeking, but after that he untrasforms into Usopp knowing that he don't need Sogeking anymore and defeats Perona. So probably Usopp doesn't need the help of a hero anymore, because now he is a hero
You ever get tired of posting the same shit every thread?
But this arc has been so good.
are you bonney
I think so too because when the Pekoms and the other guy wanted the money instead of the candy, they mentioned that Kid destroyed a couple of their ships, Kid was obviously trying to weaken them until he figured he couldn't take a whole armada and made an alliance instead
If usopp ever went back to sogeking it'd feel like a step back for the character.
>End of arc
>Luffy beats doflamnigo, collapses

tsuru and bonnie spinoff where they run a detective agency when?
maybe during his fight against Van Auger
I read the manga and watch the anime. I like both.
>things that will never happen.
Yeah, feels like it would mean that he didn't really grow as a character. It'd be nice if he grew to become sogeking personality and wasn't always a 2D coward
seeing as how you probably think that bleach is a riveting tail and that naruto is inspirational and unpredictable I will kindly speak for everyone else and say... quit fucking talking
if he used it like he used to in order to gain courage yes, but if he used it like franky used iron shogun than no. It would actually be pretty cool for him to be Sogeking when he is screwing around and when he actually has to get serious he takes the mask off and kicks the shit out of his enemy
I've seen downies write better fanfiction
>All this delusional fanfag faggotry.
Zorofags are truly the Vegetafags of the One Piece fanbase.
Look at all these Goku-syndrome fags
I like cowardsopp, he can step up when the chips are down and that's all I give a shit about. If he were just brave on the surface 24/7 I'd be sick and tired of him in an instant.
>Luffy vs Doflamingo
>Zoro vs Pica, no bloodshed at all, boring Kaku 2.0
Zoro's fights are so fucking boring now. All he does he slash the enemies and it's over.
It would be a bad idea to go back to Sogeking. Sogeking has a bounty. Usopp is just a dude. He can wander around town and collect information as Ussop, but as Sogeking he would attract attention. Also, it's not like he actually powers up by putting on the mask, so why bother?
Did you even pay attention to his fight with monet? that has to be my new favorite fight ever. He totally mindrapes her
you're just making assumptions, man. you may be right, but probably not. CoC is special for a reason, it may not have a strictly offensive capability, but something about it scared the shit out of Sengoku.
I agree with
He'd just be Zoro with a slingshot
>being this downsy
It's good relative to Mermaid Island and Punk Hazard but only mediocre relative to pre-time skip One Piece.
he was, at marine fort
maybe we can now haki
That was a great "fight"
Well shit nigga swords hurt like hell, who would have thought?
I'm pretty sure the public knows about Usopp = Sogeking.
Usopp's face was in the newspaper right after the timeskip. Without the mask. The marines and Doflamingo identified him as Sogeking.
So I'm not that sure if he can walk freely.
Wow you're wrong as fuck but I can't convince you. Oh well.
Oh I must've missed that.
>Chapter 2, Coby stands up to Alvida and puts his life on the line for his convictions, is saved by Luffy
>Chapter 579, Coby stands up to Akainu and puts his life ont he line for his convictions, is saved by Shanks
Coby is just based as all heck.
Imagine a one piece anime with this level of consistent animation or better...
wow what a great "argument"
Then I wouldn't even read the manga
I still think the Sanji fight was cooler though, not to belittle this one, but the plants flying everywhere was based as fuck
>The subbed episode on Toei's site fucked up halfway through the episode and the audio is ten seconds behind
BLUNDER OF THE CENTURY
The Sanji fight was even better.
Movies always look better than series because they have more time and money to work with. If you wanted One Piece to look that good you'd probably have to wait a month between each episode at least.
But they're boring.
If they actually put 4 chapters to an episode I wouldn't give a shit.
1 episode=1 chapter just doesn't work
You're one of those who probably started catching up on sabaody, so you really have no idea how slow it was before that.
>mfw ABS Zorofags are even more delusional than Sanjifags
No, I'm saying you'd have to wait that long for the series to look that good at it's current pace.
I'd be perfectly fine with that besides instead of all the filler shit and pressing on with the anime when it catches up to the manga, they should slowly reebot the anime
>that completely lifeless acting from Ain's idol VA throughout the entire movie
can't disagree with that one...
but Luffy vs Z and Kizaru vs Z...
I cry every time
I keep seeing this name-dropped, thoughts? It sounds like the marines just started giving out high ranks to absurdly strong people irregardless of time served or history or handicaps.
Considering Fuji's line about testing out his ability I wonder if the WG/Marines were hoarding powerful fruits just for this sort of situation.
possibly but there are also powerhouses that exist outside of the major powers
>Major animation for a fight
>It's just Zoro taking it easy on some marine shitter
Is it just me or is the anime pacing getting even slower? That episode wasn't even all of chapter 701.
BB wanted Luffy's fruit especially. I wonder why?
Rank doesn't necessarily correlate to Power Level
source that shanks never wore the hat as yonko
how do you know he wasn't a yonko before he lost his arm?
Zorofagging to that extent is butthurt ABZ sanjifags trying to make anyone who likes zoro looks ABS and delusional. The only delusional ones are sanjifags.
>It sounds like the marines just started giving out high ranks to absurdly strong people irregardless of time served or history or handicaps.
That's pretty much how Fujitora became an admiral
Just wait until he's up against a strong opponent, it'll be glorious
He lost his hand to a Sea Monster that Luffy one shot on his first day of adventure.
Come on nigga
I seriously hope we will see another fight like Zoro vs Mr.1
>Look at all these Goku-syndrome fags
>Being this stupid.
I stand by my statement that Zorofags are the Vegetafags of the One Piece fanbase, not because of Son Goku's and Vegeta's rivalry, but in the shitty reputation Vegetafanfags have earned of being so delusional with a character that they show irrational jealousy in said character's stead, while being completely ignorant to understanding the character they mindlessly champion.
That so many retarded (see, underage) Zorofags obsess over Zoro somehow secretly being stronger than Luffy/equal in strength, while still missing the fact that Zoro, as a character, would never follow a man he considers weaker than himself, is the saddest part about about their obsession with Zoro, almost such that they seriously deluded themselves that somehow Oda has changed his mind about Zoro and Sanji being rivals, despite all the shit that has happened or will happen by he end of this serial.
except that sanjifags aren't ABZ, while most zorofags are ABS
>franky is m3 now
Hard to believe he held his territory while dicking around in east blue for all that time
After Whitebeard got wrekt during the War morale was probably pretty damn high, lots of people wanting to join the winning team and all that. Hell Akainu likely got the propaganda machine running full force, a lot of 'Grab your gun and fight pirate scum' posters going up. Might even be mandatory enrollment in some cases.
Fuck, Spandam was able to get two fruits from the government as rewards for Kalifa/Kaku, they definitely have some kind of stockpile.
Those two things you are greentexting are just facts. I like sanji, i have nothing against him, hes just lost his position - for now. The problem is butthurt sanjifags not being able to accept reality. You take reality as ABS - when in fact its just the cold hard truth until oda gives sanji another chance to prove otherwise.
Who cares, the quality of the manga is perfectly cromulent.
who said that he was even a yonkou at that time
Nigga did you even read the post i responded to
but WB confirming the existence of One piece would probably swing public opinion more towards going and taking a shot at the pirate life
Are you neo-descartes?
Speaking of Z, which sub group did on decent job? Only 1080p I can find is yibis and I've never heard shit about them.
They are the best subbers around. You don't see them much because they release weekly episodes a week late. They are top top quality.
Shit, I'd be fine if it were a yearly OVA series if it got this much attention to detail.
"World Conscription" sounds like a fucking draft to me.
I will repost my rough idea of how the bounty system works. It's not perfect, but what do you think of it?
> less than 1 million:
your normalfag criminals, pirates and bandits, ignored when calculating average bounties
>up to 10 million:
high amount of damage caused while normalfag/ average damage while being confirmed strong (Alvida)
>10 million to 80 million:
massive amounts of damage (Robin as child)/ high civilian casualities/, very strong/ named member of a high-profile organization (SHs after Enies Lobby)
>80 million to 100 million:
capable of causing worldwide incidents (Croco, Hancock, maybe Brownbeard)/ remarkable member of a high-priority organization like the Yonko, hostile nations or Revos (Rockstar).
>100 million to 300 million:
caused incident with worldwide consequences/ high-ranking member of a high-profile org. (Zoro, Killer)
>300 million to 500 million:
caused massive damage to WG/Marines (Enies Lobby) or gigantic losses in civilian life (Kidd, Caesar), maybe includes mid-ranking members of high-priority orgs
>500 million to a billion:
repeated massive damage to the very structure of the WG/ leading powerful groups against them/ high-ranking member of a high-priority org (Whitebeard Commanders, Chinjao)
>A billion or more:
leader of an organization that threatens the very existence of the WG (The Yonko themselves, Dragon).
source? Pretty sure he just sees Luffy as a potential rival for One Piece.
>Zoro is still a supernova
>Sanji kicks Vergo in a wall, then fractures his leg in their fight
>Sanji fights Dofla, doesn't even scratch him
>Zoro fights Fujitora, doesn't even scratch him
>lol Zoro so awesome admiral level suck it Sanjifags
>Franky blows up a wall
>wow m3 confirmed Sanji so useless
I love Franky, but if he fought Vergo or Dofla he would have died instead of "jobbing"
>You take reality as ABS
your "reality" is ABS
that sounds about right
>Either you're against piracy or you're a pirate
Don't forget about the nosebleeds
clearly that counts as jobbing and serves as proof he aint m3
Sanji never even got a chance to 'power up' like he did against that sea giant. He pops jambe and immediately has to fight for his life or to hold off a powerhouse.
Hold it buster, what does ABS mean?
One Piece 736
Source: 4chan /mlp/
-Chapter starts with sanji getting blown the fuck up by big mom and then eaten
-Rest of the crew wonders why he went onto her ship alone and they coup-de-burst out of there
-they find bon-chan at the next island and hes practiced his cooking skills, hes also touched sanji so hes the perfect replacement
-Luffy zoro and kinemon make it to doffy + fuji
-Zoro asks luffy if he can take both of them on and go all out while luffy runs away with law
-Luffy agress, gets out of there with law and kinemon and heads towards franky
-Zoro "finally I can show my true power without anybody around to witness it"
-Zoro opens his closed eye and dofla shits himself
people are not really fair when it comes to Sanji
Oda killed Sanji with the nosebleed stuff. He will never recover from that. His performance in Punk Hazard and Dressrosa(so far) was great but it doesn't matter because he already is the laughingstock of the manga. This will never change. Deal with it.
My problem is that he is just coward 23/7. he needs more depth he needs to follow in his father's footsteps. He doesn't have to be couragsopp, but it would be nice if he just at the very least get toned down a bit. I'd prefer it if he'd man up and just have a general no complaints attitude.
The difference is that zoro did not job. He got overpowered but was able to recover. Sanji got outclassed and had his leg broken and then was understandably brushed off by someone far stronger.
The funny part is that the jobbing shit is more of a joke rather than the main point. The fact is, sanji has gotten his ass kicked without showing anything in return for quite a while now. Meanwhile franky has been doing work nonstop, and has been acting as one of the only people who is on task. Sanji lost fights and had a bunch of nosebleeds nonstop.
Its literal reality. You have no counterpoints to what happened. Because it fucking happened. Over and over. No one said anything about franky beating vergo or dofla. Its not about fights. Its about the fucking character. Sanji has gone to shit whilst franky has shown himself to be on the fucking ball - through fights, utility, and mentality.
I'm not saying it won't swing back. And sanji could very well take back his spot in the coming chapters - but he is the one who needs to do something. Oda has been ABS if you really want to cry about it. He wrote it just how its been shown.
>getting blown the fuck
Stopped reading there. Fuck off back to /sp/ with this shit.
2 Episodes per month, with all cover stories animated, and a 10 filler mini-arc once in a while would already be enough to do wonder.
But unfortunatelly that's not how broadcasting works.
This doesn't implicate at all that BB wants the Gomu Gomu, just fruits in general.
>The BB pirates aim to aquire the most powerful fruits they can obtain so be careful all of you
>Luffy in particular has earned the personal attention of BB himself.
That is pretty clear.
ya but it has to be explicitly stated three times in the manga and at least once by Oda for anybody here to believe it
OF COURSE BB WOULD WANT LUFFY'S FRUIT.
The darkness fruit multiplies damage, but the gomu gomu fruit would nullify that damage for the most part.
It makes so much sense.
have you decided to stop posting yet?
could he use the gura gura and gomu gomu at the same time
No, not at all. He is saying that because the SH's were already on their radar since fucking mocktown because BB was going to job luffy originally to get shichibukai.
Saying that he specifically wants his fruit is reading too much into it. Its just the fact that luffy is going to be a player and he has been involved with BB for quite a while. Jinbe saying that BB is hunting down big names includes luffy, rather than specifically pointing him out.
rubber could easily counter the yami yami no mi's weakness of taking increased damage... well shit looks like luffy may be fucked
picture may be what one piece is.
There still isn't enough evidence to corroborate that BB wants Luffy specifically for his fruit and no other reason.
It's not like Luffy's fruit is powerful, Luffy just knows how to use it.
You're acting like BB would want the Dick Dick if someone powerful had it.
Sanji has saved the crew's ass way more times than Franky open a door for them.
Your point is invalid. It's literal reality, bro.
It multiplies the damage, but if he had the gomu gomu fruit then he could just redirect that multiplied force back at them. He'd be unstoppable
>Luffy's child inside of hancock is one piece
I agree, the nosebleed stuff is getting annoying, just like Chopper having been reduced to moeblob fujoshibait
Anyone But Sanji
m3 status is about fighting ability, not about usefulness. Franky, Usopp and Brook are the only straw hats who have been useful on Dressrosa, that doesn't make them the new m3
Sanji is objectively stronger than Franky, hence he is (and will always stay) in the m3
I would travel the grandline for that.
That or sengokus goat
>taking increased damage
why do people keep doing this? why? he does not take increased damage - he takes regular damage. the only difference is that he does not have logia invulnerability. so he says he takes more damage than one would expect a logia user to take.
I'll take that as point conceded. Thx for playing.
I'd be more excited if she traveled my grand line
While in-universe it was stated that bounties are no power-level it's obvious that strength plays some role. Makes sense, since people that can punch mountains to rubble are a special thread, and the majority of people in OP are still normalfags.
I think for determining a bounty some combination of strength (if remarkable)/individual thread level/thread level your organization/position within a hostile organization and of course past deeds is used.
If I'm even a little bit correct Luffy might get a bounty in the 500 million area after Dressrosa (550 million, becauuse Ace). The other Strawhats might get a raise by default then.
Maybe Zoro 300 million because they think he's the First Mate, all the other 100 million, Chopper of course remains at his few bucks.
Because of the nature of the Yami Yami, attacks hit him harder than usual because of the innate gravity effect.
literally no, read/watch it again. hell - fucking youtube it. he explains it painfully slowly to ace (the retarded audience)
Jinbe is about to warn Luffy ("It is Imperative that...") to be wary of BB right after saying that the BB crew are after fruit, BB is paying *SPECIAL ATTENTION* to LUFFY. What else could it mean?
I didn't say that. I just said that BB want's his fruit. Of course he want's to defeat Luffy. They are going for the same goal. But Jinbe says that he is going for him for his fruit too.
I'm not acting like that. Jinbe says that BB crew are after fruit, BB is paying special attention to Luffy. That is the only reason I am claiming such things.
>the retarded audience
>still has a hard time understanding it
So, you're below even the retarded audience? Jesus Christ.
everywhere I can find anything on it says he takes more damage because it accelerates attacks due to gravity, if you have a link to something that says otherwise please post it but right now I think the burden of proof is on you.
It is imperative that you don't get dicked by blackbeard? What the fuck else do you think hes going to say? Luffy and co would get rekt'd by BB if they casually walked into him so early on so jimbo is telling him to be careful because he is not the same BB from before (which would have rekt him regardless).
Its a warning based on the fact that luffy is WELL within BB's radar because they have met multiple times before. Its not some super specific super secret. You can also throw the D factor into it..how they are destined to clash (supposedly). Its a general warning. Not BB WANTS YO RUBBER NIGGA, YOU BEST HIDE
>BB wanted Luffy's fruit especially. I wonder why?
Don't know if it was you who said that, but that's the comment that started the entire argument.
so if blackbeard isn't intangible from his yami yami fruit, why isn't it classed as a paramecia? like magellans fruit is
nigga, I did not ask how he lost it
Actually from a standpoint ignoring the storyconstruct and forshadowing, Blackbeard appears to be the weakest of the Yonkou.
Half of his crew was wrecked by Magellan, they all got jobbed by Sen Goku and they pussied out on Shanks. There's really no reason for Luffy to not go after Blackbeard immediately especially not regarding his powerlevel when he's going literally after every Yonkou. If Blackbeard wasn't the set in stone final villain for Luffy it would even make sense for Blackbeard to be the first Yonkou to take down.
Seriousl the BB pirates will need some massive feats to hype them, because their last appearance was really weak (they all ran away from a single Admiral)
>being this retarded
because thats what makes the fruit special. its a tradeoff. he does not gain the invulnerability, but instead is able to take away the invulnerability of other logias. he does not however, take "EXTRA" damage.
Yes he does
please consider this gif as an apology to my retarded nature
Does inertia exist in OP? Because a elephant gattling would hurt in his increased damage mode even if he can 'neutralize it.' In that case logia's would be the weakest as he can just disperse their elements, while an actual physical DF attack would still hurt him.
Yes he does take more damage.
Literally yea, here he is saying he sucks in pain more than anyone else because of the Yami Yami.
Blackbeard is strong as fuck. If you cant see that you are a fucking idiot. He jobbed the shit out of ace and that was before he had the guragura. Luffy would get raped, hard. The SH's aren't ready for yonkou - they are hardly ready for dofla.
Megello only jobbed the OG BB pirates - not the new ones. They also ran right into megello because thats how they roll. They rely on fate and D and all that shit. They did not need to win because they would be saved - that is not to say they did not get raped. Megello is also strong as FUCK in a confined location like that.
I agree 100% that they, as a crew, have a long way to go to be hyped up as one of the latter tier baddies - but BB himself is about where he needs to be (will get stronger regardless).
but not really any need. I was thinking the yami was paramecia, but BB says himself during teh Ace fight that it's a logia.
Ace was weak as fuck though. He got a good logia and rode that shit forever. He is a noob with a drake sword
We don't know either way. But it is hard to imagine someone of his strength not being a yonko to begin with. We don't know know when the term yonko was coined prior to the main story.
My post was completely comparing him to the other Yonkou, not the Straw Hats.
If we weren't outside viewers who can tell that Blackbeard is going to be the last Yonkou Luffy will defeat I would say Blackbeard is the weakest amongst them
Can't you understand the Contex of sentences?
BB crew are collecting fruit. BB is paying special attention to Luffy.
The context is BB collecting fruits and Luffy is mentioned in the NEXT sentence. What else could it mean? As I said before, that is not to say that there aren't other reasons for taking Luffy down but one of them is his fruit. I don't understand how that is so hard to understand.
Yes that's correct. BB wanted Luffy's fruit especially. What of it?
HE SAYS MY BODY SUCKS IN MORE PAIN YOU STUPID FUCKING RETARDS
HE HAS A SPECIAL BODY
ITS NOT THE FUCKING FRUIT
HIS BODY HAS BEEN SPECIAL THE ENTIRE TIME THAT HE WAS ON WHITEBEARDS SHIP AND FUCKING EVERYONE KNEW ABOUT IT
HOLY LITERAL FUCK
ITS HIS BODY THAT EATS UP THE EXTRA DAMAGE
YOU ARE CONFUSING THAT WITH ONE OF THE DOWNSIDES OF HIS LOGIA
THATS WHY THE LOGIA IS PERFECT FOR HIM - BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH HES NOT INVULNERABLE, HIS BODY ALLOWS HIM TO MAKE UP FOR IT BECAUSE HE CAN GOBBLE UP MORE PAIN THAN OTHERS
Because no where is it said he wants his fruit especially.
He IS Darkness. He's clearly referring to his Devil Fruit in that panel
so... how did blackbeard lose his teeth?
>explicitly calls it a flaw that his body sucks in pain
>entire time is talking about his DF ability
do you even context
Shanks after Blackbeard went too far and started scratching
Again its a general warning you panzy. No where does it say that he wants his fruit specifically. You are reading too much into it. You are not oda - do not do his job for him.
Way to throw a perfectly civil argument out the window. Fine, I'm not trying to change your mind; if you won't listen to the fact then so be it. I honestly don't care and only wanted a discussion.
Do you even read japanese? Shitty translations are now fact?
Holy shit I just realized that this was a clockwork orange reference
He is so fat that he takes less damage.
>One piece is cocaine
>He's been snorting one piece since the beginning on the manga at the cost of a few of his teeth
>On the hunt to find the one DF that lets him snort with no risk to his health
>now blaming the translation
Can YOU read japanese? Why the fuck would the translation even more out of context? If anything this argument further proves that he's clearly talking about the Devil Fruit and you're just nitpicking
ya'll a shit
Kaidou is a yonkou duck logia user
>needs everything painstakingly spelled out for him
>can't read between the lines where it's obvious the author wishes him to
Just shut up, bro. Go read Inuyasha where the characters repeat exactly what's going on a million times, just to make sure idiots like you miss it.
time will tell faggot. you are the one putting words in oda's mouth not me. i wont rule it out as one of the end happenings but saying it now as fact is literally retarded.
Jinbe says that BB crew are after fruits. Chopper and Usopp even have a discussion about BB crew taking one of their fruits. Then Jinbe says BB is paying *[PERSONAL] ATTENTION* to Luffy. The sentences are obviously related. It's a simple implication. It's not reading into it too much.
BB crew after strong fruits and BB giving special attention to Luffy.
BB wants Luffy's fruit. That is not a massive jump.
Justify why this one is dead
>protip you can't
Because that's terrible fan art
Except the Gomu Gomu is not a particularly strong fruit, also you're ignoring the fact Luffy is infamous beyond his devil fruit user status and is obviously more threatening to BB as a rival more so than him just having something BB wants.
"Ben has been searching out for really rare baseball cards and buying them for his collection. Word is he is paying special attention to purchasing your rare card."
Clearly, Ben doesn't give a fuck about your rare baseball card.
Because I wanted blue hair dammit.
Think about it. Blackbeard's major weakness is that he has to tank attacks. The Gomu Gomu fruit gives the user invulnerability to blunt force.
ben sounds like a filthy casual to me
also when will law kid and luffy become yonkou? any time soon? after another time skip? never?
Wow, what an analogy. Why is it impossible for Luffy to be watched by BB beyond his devil frut?
I would guess BB is just keeping an eye on Luffy for his accomplishments, the way Luffy uses his fruit puts a negative strain on him so its not particularly desirable. Haki would negate the blunt force immunity, logia powers or Buggy's would be more useful.
It was supposed to sound stupid, just like the argument.
Except every major powerhouse character has access to an ability that ignores that invulnerability.
>thinking anyone in one piece could take down our lord and savior
Maybe logias, but it could be that the yami yami fruit wouldn't allow him to use another logia's ability at the same time as the yami's.
That's assuming BB wants the gomu for himself. He might just see how much use Luffy gives it and covets it based on that.
Speaking of, when will Luffy learn to use CoA haki and his rubberness together so he has indestructible but still pliable skin
Didn't say he could do it, just that he would want it. Really though Buggy's new crew had infamous people that even Whitebeard didn't want to deal with, admittedly they were already fighting the marines so they might not be particularly powerful, but quite a hinderance.
"Word is he is paying special attention to purchasing YOUR rare card."
That is specific.
Had you said
" Word is he is paying special attention to purchasing the same rare card you have" Then your point would be correct.
which raises the question- will buggy ever become a yonkou? would be funny to see his reaction to becoming one
Also. There is only one DF per power. Your analogy supports my view in both cases if the rare card is a one off like DF.
Sure, that's fine, if that rare card is the only one of its kind and can't be duplicated.
That's not really an official position one applies for, they just have to be so influential and powerful that people just refer to the as such. Or do you think each of them submits a resume for the WG to approve.
and you needed to sell that card to pay off your mafia debts so him stealing your card would kill you.
>"So it says here you terrorized several small towns during your time in East Blue, is that correct?"
>"Mr. The Clown, this position requires that you terrorize at least a small city, preferably a nation."
Who cares, the quality of the manga is forevermore.
I think yonkou is like the FBI's most wanted list so yes the WG does sort of decide it. I'm probably wrong but it makes the most sense to me.
Actually, Luffy's gumminess doesn't protect him from haki attacks from blunt weapons.
>that killing intent
where do the gorosei stand in terms of individual power? are the above admiral power? Maybe bonney made them younger in exchange for her freedom?
The old woman was able to hang out on the battlefield and deal with mooks easily enough, but we don't know how she'd handle serious foes or if the rest of them are any good.
Are you thinking of the marines strategist?
Its not really like that at all. its just a public term for the strongest group of pirates that stuck, the government doesn't pick them.
What would it take for Toei to actually care about One Piece?
Isn't she one of them?
>Shichibukai system destroyed by Fuji
>Buggy worried about getting exposed, starts trying to find some other way to look impressive
>Accidentally stumbles across the aftermath of big mom or kaidou
>Absalom takes a picture, fear of buggy spreads
>He takes over land and becomes the new yonoku
If that doesn't happen ill be sad.
No shes just a marine. Aren't all of the gorosei male?
pls be oda in disguise planning this
From the looks of the trends Oda seems to be following, Buggy is going to be getting a higher and higher status completely by accident. So, yeah, you've got something to look forward to.
It would need to fail to a point where it either isn't profitable any more (unlikely since they spend so little on it) or get to a point where they deem it more profitable to actually put effort into it to get viewers back. Neither of these will ever happen though.
Why was Buggy even in Impel Down
Magellan is new admiral
Being a pirate and general jerk
Luffy explains why…
Not a chance.
For singlehandedly slaughtering the marines and tenryubitto
They used a time traveller to imprison him in the past before he could do it
I don't remember what happened to Magellan. I know he had to take responsibility for the escapes.
The unknown shichibukai is Condoriano
Well he's no longer warden buddy
He's still in Impel Down
this guy took on all three admirals during the war, mihawk and saved the lives on two dangerous pirates without a scratch on him, he isn't weak he is god
He's a vice warden now.
Can you guess the warden now?
Con D Oriano will never be canon. ;_;
I thought that devil guy was the vice-warden.
he got beaten to near death by the escapees and was demoted to vice warden while that hannyabal was made chief warden
How did he get beaten? BB?
Block D. Rebecca is the next crew member.
most of the level 6 inmates I guess. remeber mass rioting broke out when blackbeard freed everyone
I might cry if its not Bart.
Stabbed in the heart onscreen, bleeding from the mouth immediately afterwards, was unable to complete the job she set out to do even at the cost of her life, hasn't been seen in over half a year, irrelevant, uninteresting, and just shut the fuck up about it.
why can't it be both
If this were another manga they would have stopped already, but with Oda you can never truly count a character dead.
This is actually plausible once sanji dies
A lot of reasons.
He's lucky the level-6's didn't kill him.
She got stabbed in the fucking heart
If she lives, this will be bigger bullshit than Pell
He got wrecked by blackbeard pirates and got demoted to vice warden, hannybal is new warden
Why has no one EVER mentioned Luffy's mom at all? Could she be a toy?
I can deal with the theories of Crocodile being a female originally, but Luffy's mom? Really?
Luffys mom has to be a D.
That seems to be the trend within the bloodline
One things for sure she got the D at one point.
I agree completely, I was just saying that people will never stop believing because Oda has pulled similar shit before.
Why, pray tell, would Oda kill her off if he doesn't kill anybody else off?
Oda made sure you didn't forget Sabo as there were little hints in the ongoing episodes as well as the flashbacks. Still, it would be glorious if "Lucy" was revealed to be Bluejam!
Here, have a Sabo Dome from the amusement park at the Saboady Archipelago (episode 517).
this nigger solo'd the blackbeard pirates, A lot of those level 6's probably died
To show Doflamingo has a clear attachment to his nakama?
Is there any place I can download all the cover pages? I found mangahead but there is no link to the zip.
Man, if the guards haven't released Shillew, the Blackbeard Pirates would have been just killed and forgotten
I get that Garp and Roger were on equal terms since both are D. Wouldn't it make sense that Luffy's fight to a draw would be Teach and not Coby? Plus Teach doesn't seem serious enough for final boss material
Oh boy Crocodile time!
Coby is not going to be Luffy's fight to a draw. If hes going to have one of those with a marine it will be with Smoker.
Crocodile will return with haki.
Which arc do you want to see him come in?
Ace said 'If anything happens to me, watch out for my little brother' so I'm guessing that's his motivation. That or I'm sure Oda can just say 'to end discrimination between humans and fishmen' and we won't really care.
Does Oda actually draw everything in each chapter? Wouldn't that be tiring as fuck?
he has assisstants
I'm sure he would come support at Reverie.
I'd like to see him before that, but being realistic there doesn't seem to be a good point to shoehorn him in and have it seem natural.
Damn I miss a fictional character so much it's ridiculous
D: Oda-sensei, you have assistants like other artists, right? Other manga you can recognize when stuff is obviously done by assistants, but when you look at One Piece from the first volume, it doesn't seem that way! Do you draw everything that appears in the art? P.N. Girl Who Reread it from Volume 1
O: Absolutely not, I couldn't draw every single thing. My staff draws the backgrounds for me. When I show them my setting art, they deconstruct it and ensure that everything gets displayed perfectly. My staff is incredibly talented. Perhaps the difference you're seeing is that I draw 100% of anything "living or moving", including mob scenes, animals, smoke, clouds, seas, etc. When you leave the movement up to someone else, it can't help but cause abnormalities in your art. It becomes awkward. This is all just my particular obsession within my work, however.
None of those sound very good, hopefully it'll be an arc we aren't expecting or at the next gigantic battle.
>Is Koala's presence just to explain Sabo's abilities as a spectator?
>While looking cute?
It's to remind the serious fans that Tiger Fisher was a real hero for restoring her smile.
Note how prominent Oda has made Koala's smile. That's a big deal because that smile was a big plot point from when Koala was little.
Since Nami has her smile (on the wanted poster) and there is the SMILE fruit factory, I wonder what other smiles Oda has coming up....
We still don't know what the hell is in Zou but Law's crew.
I want Monet to bite my dick and snowball my seed.
I bet it's the talking animal island.
wasn't it like a base of operations for Kaidou?
We don't know, but Zou is where Kinemon is heading
That's still pretty amazing
Whatever reason the samurai were going there for. Is it part of the Wano Kingdom?
Probably not, why would Law leave his crew in Wano?
i just want to see Scratchman Apoo, he has the dopest fruit
Vergo smiling like that always makes me feel really sympathetic to Doffy's underlings.
That would make sense, but there wasn't any evidence of Luffy or Dragon forgetting her existence. I think that if she were a toy, Oda would have thrown at least a clue by now.
The thing is, not even Oda remembers her
I believe they left a samurai back in Zou and thats why they were going there next.
His crew is dead
>To show Doflamingo has a clear attachment to his nakama?
He wouldn't need to kill of Monet or Vergo for that. The scene when they told him they were going to sacrifice showed it, also the fact that he was genuinely worried about Jora.
Monet and Vergo can't be dead, he has to start his path to redemption after this arc, and he needs his nakama to do it.
Im so hyped that him, Hawkins and Kid are all in an alliance now, the 3 supernovas I want to see the most. Hopefully they get some action soonish.
Goddam was anyone in BW not a joke besides Daz Bones?
You've never seen Tsuru get serious and go Giga Negress.
Then how would Oda save Monet? Giving harpies two hearts? haha
It's going to happen isn't it
dont really like their alliance. i ffel like its going to make Apoo look like a fool
>nice trips tho
Obviously it's Cora-san and that's why Law is so obsessed with Luffy
Wait a second, then Monet didn't push the self-destruct button? What was that explosion then?
she probably got herself killed when she got in the way of a celestial dragon and got shot, that's why Dragon is trying to get rid of them, in fact he is following his Justice because that how Garp raised him
Why would she have even reacted when one heart got stabbed then?
Bon clay is an OG. Doublefinger was good but suffered from "act like a retard so she can actually lose to Nami" syndrome. Mr. 3 is the right hand man of a shichibukai with an incredibly strong crew.
I guess it wasn't on their destiny
Who does the vivre card leading Nami to Zou belong to then
The sad fact is, if Oda decides to bring Monet or Vergo back he will, regardless of how retarded it seems. Fuck, he didn't even try to explain any of the other people surviving their heroic sacrifice.
You thought you could trust Law?
I'd like to think that Garp wouldn't tolerate having his daughter in law killed by a Noble.
It was a red herring for the reader.
>Not wanting Cover Story: Monet's Snow Orphanage
S'matter with you?
Garp wouldn't do shit if she ran afoul of a CD.
He probably enjoyed it as much as the getting his grandson getting killed by his own crew
Mr. 3 and Miss Goldenweek proved to be incredibly dangerous, they turned into a joke after they were defeated. Mr. 2 may have the personality of a joke but he's one of the greatest characters. Robin was pretty serious too.
What surprises me the most about Daz Bones is that Crocodile didn't consider him as expendable as the other BW officers. He didn't hesitate about making Mr 2 kill Mr 3, yet he politely asked Daz Bones to go with him to the New World.
>this much happening in one chapter
maybe remove the sanji part and the franky fighting and it would be more believable and add a little more mindless chatter and shit jokes
Ace was a pirate and a rightful criminal. Garp covered up for him for a long time. I don't think Garp knows enough about the nobles' abuse, or he wouldn't tolerate it.
Thats a fine amount to happen in one chapter. Sounds like it'll only be a few pages for them explaining the rules and ditching Cavendish, then a couple pages of Usopp/Robin and dwarves, then a couple pages of strawhats on the big mom ship. If anything that isn't that much to happen in a chapter.
Croc is my favorit charcater, only got defeated due to plot armor.
He was frustrated because Robin rendered his plan useless, lost because he couldn't stop thinking about killing the bitch.
You have to be kidding me. If a kidney collapses does the person react?
That's because Daz Bones ate the supa supa fruit, making him 50% man, 50% blade and 200% motherfucking 'I'll-rot-in-jail-with-the-boss' loyalty.
What the fuck is a Reviere?
Isn't doffy like 40 or something?
Also need a new thread
>only got defeated due to plot armor.
Nope. He was clearly outclassed by Luffy, the only reason Luffy struggled so much was because he was a logia and and Luffy didn't know how to fight one yet. If he knew haki then it would have been incredibly one sided.
I think they call him that because of his heritage. I'm really interested in his backstory, he's a World Noble but when drawn as a kid we see him all scuffed up.
Its the meeting every (4?) years for leaders of the various countries in the world to meet at Mariejois and discuss things. They talked about it a lot in fishman island.
Some speculate Croc was weakened because he was drying up Alabasta
>he's a World Noble but when drawn as a kid we see him all scuffed up.
The kid doffy sketch gave me Sabo-esque vibes. Noble but he would prefer to have fun outside and do things on his own.
>If he knew haki then it would have been incredibly one sided
And if croc was whitebeard it wouldn't have even been a contest xD
I prefer this >>101056316 even though its not true. But in truth croc lost because someone had to be first.
Yeah but Celestial dragon is a bit higher class than 'local rich guy of bumblefuck island' or whatever Sabo was.
Thats a decent theory, but that still wouldn't be losing because of plot armor.
It'll be that triangle headed guy that keeps popping up in SBS.
You shouldn't talk like that about someone who fodderized Akainu like this. Luffy learnt about Crocodile's weakness pretty early anyway.
>And if croc was whitebeard it wouldn't have even been a contest xD
I hope you're being retarded on purpose. Luffy would just need the ability to touch croc, not any of the strength from haki. Thats not even close to the same reasoning. What i'm saying is, Luffy was already far stronger than Crocodile, the only reason he was having a hard time was because lologia. If you gave Luffy the most very basic of CoA thats so weak it barely makes a difference in his power/defense, he still would have destroyed Croc.
>Shota Doffy and Shota Vergo picking on Shota Law
I wasn't the original plot armor poster, but yeah, the theory's at least interesting
>hitting a guy from behind with an attack he brushes off shortly after
He resigned himself. Sengoku didn't want him to leave.
1. Thats not fodderizing at all
2. Just because Luffy learned that he could hit Crocodile with water doesn't make it easy to do so in a desert.
You can't say Croc only won because of plot armor when Luffy was clearly stronger and faster.
Well, people consider things like Doflamingo cutting Crocodile's head or landing a few hits on Jozu as fodderizing even if it was the same situation.
has it seriously been half a year?
Doffy and Vergo would be young adults by the time Law was a shota though. DD is 15 years older than him.
>mfw angsty Cora-san flashback is imminent
People using the term wrong doesn't mean you should join them in using it wrong.
He "WAS", but Magellan had to play scapegoat after a bunch of prisoners escaped while he was in charge there.
He was glad to take the punishment though since he blamed himself more than any of them.
There was an SBS where Oda said luffy's parents would be in the next volume but I didn't bother scrutinizing every person because he probably wasn't serious... But if he was she probably already appeared. I forget what chapter that SBS was in... Maybe somewhere around Skypeia/Water7...?
Damn it, I'll have to check now.
The piece that the Strawhats have leads to the main card, which is in Zou. They explained that a Vivre card doesn't always point to the person its tied to in Shabody, that's how the strawhats made it back to the Sunny even though Rayleigh wasn't there (shakky had his card)
That was referring to Dragon.
Oda talked in a later SBS/interview about Luffy's mom and said he hadn't even decided if she would ever show up.
Really though, he did a pretty shit job of handling it. Spent the entire early part of it either shitting or talking about how impossible it would be to break out of Impel Down. If he didn't go easy on Luffy or Blackbeard's crew none of that would have happened.
He took out both Luffy and Blackbeard's crew within seconds each
It's just that both were lucky enough to survive through different means
