Vergo was Doffy's oldest friend, he was basically Doffy's Zoro. Then there is Diamante who's the strongest fighter and hero of the coliseum, and Pika's a commando unit leader, that means his specialty is basically running up to target fucking something up and then running away before he can get his ass kicked.

You can't put a non-zoan into weapons and use it properly. You can't train inanimate objects. You can train animals which is why you can control it.

You need a conscious to control your fruit or weapon which is why it has to be a zoan.

It wouldn't sink. It would float since that is what a non devil fruit boat would do.
>>
>>101341761
Do you realize what you just said?
>>
>>101342149
Human bodies float too, but DF user's body just sinks. They stated it quite clearly, users in the water "become hammers".
>>
>>101342159

Yeah. When in water, the ship reverts to being a ship and ships float. DF users don't sink because they become heavier or anything, they sink because they don't have the energy to swim. Boats don't swim they float. Also, the ship has that spirit which is why it would work.
>>
>>101340776
So did Zoro use haki during this fight or?

This. Dofla even got scared by Aokiji. He's a manipulative asshole, not a confrontational guy. An agressive animal like Luffy going all up his face like that is unexpected for him.
>>
>>101342272

That's a Japanese idiom isn't it? Why would they become heavier? When they touch Kairoseki which has the same effect as as the sea they just lose energy. When Luffy elephant guns the Kraken his hand did not become heavier but he said it was taking the energy out of him. The sea does not make you heavier.
>>
>>101342386
It's not about becoming heavier, physics aren't involved in that process, users are just unable to float, they instantly sink.

There's not enough mystery for it to be dragged on for long. And Oda being Oda, he'll hold off on this shit for as long as possible by focusing his writing on other events which aren't that intriguing. Prime example is the fight between Fujitora and Dofla against Law. There was a perfectly tense set up. A cliffhangar of one of the chapters had me pumped. Then we only get to see the beginning of the confrontation and the end, with Law lying on the ground totally bloody and their surroundings damaged as shit.

Its like you don't know anything about writing. Oda isn't hiding his face because he doesn't want us to know its Sabo, hes hiding his face because his new appearance is going to be shocking due to scars/eyepatch/something else.

When did I ever say this was the case?
>hes hiding his face because his new appearance is going to be shocking due to scars/eyepatch/something else.
This is besides the point, but Luffy was able to recognize him quickly, a guy who hadn't seen in how many years? His face is not going to be that deformed by battle marks. Also, we already know he has a scar. Is your opinion really only that he's delaying because he doesn't want to show us the remaining few inches of the scar? He's hyping this reveal up but it doesn't have enough mystery surrounding it. The CClown exchange did have a lot of mystery surrounding it. Nobody in their right minds thought it was going to go smoothly, and the calm townsfolk even foreshadowed that Dofla hadn't truly abdicated. Setting up the confrontation as the cliff hangar of a chapter was perhaps the wrong decision if the fight wasn't even going to be seen. Also, you act as though that wasn't a good opportunity to introduce Dofla and Fujitora's abilities. In reality that situation was more intriguing than the predictable formula of not revealing full abilities until Luffy, Zoro and Sanji start fighting the final fights of the arc.

It didn't have to be a one sided skirmish. For one thing, there have been one sided skirmishes that were some of the best fights in the series. But you forget that this exchange had been hyped to the fucking extreme. It was one of the main reasons for going to Dressrosa.

>>101349135
Doffy and Fuji completely stomped Law while Law tried to run around and buy time. That fight would not have been worth showing. It wouldn't have been a good time to show their abilities because then we'd already know all of them before the actual fight. You can whine all you want and say you'd prefer it another way but what Oda did makes perfect sense.
>>
>>101349256
Hence, the fake mustache that covers his entire mouth.
>>
>>101349310
not the other guy but, it's all down to personal preference, some like the faster pace of the manga while others like the filler in the anime
>>
>>101349310
Well the main thing is that they only cover like 1-2 chapters an episode, which causes a lot of filler and padding. Then on top of that, the filler they add completely changes the tone of scenes. For example, Zoro vs Hody in the manga was a one shot, where as in the anime they made it look like Zoro was struggling. They do this with a lot of fights and other scenes and its just not good. Then you have the padding which reaches near-DBZ levels of drawn out. The manga is far superior in every way. Feel free to still watch the anime if you want, just don't exclusively watch it.

I refuse to believe theres actually anyone who prefers the filler in the anime.

Fujitora fucking stated that what he did was merely a test. What makes you think his full potential would have been revealed in that fight? Law can pull some hot shit, but it would have been really damn nice to see his hot moves amount to shit in the face of a new admiral and Dofla.

>That fight would not have been worth showing.
And yet most of everything else that was happening--characters taking turns saying exposition, Usopp lying once again to cute dwarfs which are only there to satisfy the very young portion of OP fans, and Sanji and Violet's all sudden understanding of each other--just wasn't that good. It was okay, but it wasn't good. The confrontation set up, on the other hand, was outstanding but was dismissed.

You can whine all you want and say you'd prefer it another way but what Oda did makes perfect sense.

>>101349922
Saying that the other things happening weren't good is pure opinion, but they whether they were good or not they needed to be shown. There was no reason that we needed to see the fight and it made perfect sense to have it be off screen.
>Forgive me. I didn't know you were going to take to take a stance that similar to the "objectively the best" argument. Opinions don't exist when it comes to our master Oda.
No one said its the objective best, I said it makes perfect sense. You were complaining and I'm telling you there was nothing wrong with it. Notice how "making sense" and "objectively the best" aren't even close to the same.

There are some good episodes, for example the Smoker vs Vergo fight was pretty good but most of the time it just sucks

I was in the same boat as you, but once I started to read the manga I got really addicted and I don't want to got back.

When was the last time One Piece had a decent fight? Punk Hazard and Fishman Island had crappy ones.
>>
>>101350672
fishman island and punk hazard were literally just to show how strong the crew got, but smoker and law vs vergo was decent, and the gladiator battles have been pretty good so far
>>
>>101350134
Making sense and making perfect sense is not even the same thing. For it to be perfect it has to executed perfectly. Oda whips out the tension and takes it nowhere. Absolutely nowhere. The reason it wasn't shown was because Oda only genuinely cares about fights between the strawhats. That shit gets old, though.

>but they whether they were good or not they needed to be shown.
When did I say otherwise? Why sacrifice one for the other? Oda's proved several times that he writes so events are happening simultaneously. Also, he's broke out the old time flashback in this arc. There's no reason to not go back and show some of the fight.
>>
>>101350672
they just aren't fighting people who match their skills. the power gap between Luffy and Hody felt like it was huge, even when he had all the steroids
>>
>>101350672
Law/Smoker vs Vergo was great.
Brook vs Zeo was decent enough

But yeah, the last Strawhat fight was back in Thriller Bark, vs Oars

>>

What do you mean by that? There have been plenty of good fights since then. We've also had a strawhat team up battle since then too.
>>
Sanji is so weak, he needs some way to deal damage, preferably from a distance. Both Blue Walk and Sky Walk are incredibly strong, but I don't see him being much of a threat to anyone with just shitty kicks. Okama mode for shit like hell wink would make him a rival to Zoro again.
>>
>>101350782
>punk hazard
Punk Hazard was? Nah, son. Sanji got his leg fucked up and Zoro potentially knows some kind of haki. Luffy wins in a fight against what could hardly even be called a fight in One Piece standards. The only thing that was impressive in terms of strength came from Law cutting that mountain in half. Nobody in the crew went all out in punk hazard. They did somewhat in fishman island, but not really. I'm hoping this will be the arc to either show that they can manage in the new world.
>>
>>101350894
The word "perfect" is nothing but a buzzword to you. Got it. For something to make sense doesn't mean it's good. Something can easily make sense but still could have been better pulled off. What the fuck do you think I've been talking about?
>>
>>101351393
"Making perfect sense" doesn't mean that the execution is perfect, it means that the logic in it is perfect. You fucking dunce.
>>
>>101351218
Fishman island was like the beginning of one piece, where the enemies were so far below the crew the fights were complete stomps. Then Punk Hazard is more like baratie/arlong where the enemies aren't necessarily super strong but there are a lot of things going on to cause problems for the crew that don't have to do with directly fighting. Now Dressrosa is Alabasta, their first real test against a shichibukai taking over an island.
>>
>>101351177
im honestly surprised he hasnt learned tempest kick since he can use sky walk
>>
>>101351218
zoro has haki we've already been told this
>>
>>101351424
I've already explained why that's not true. In light of the set up of the confrontation, easily the most or one of the most tense things in this arc, the follow up to it is weak as fuck at best. In other words, it makes no sense for it to be set up like that only to switch things that could have happened in a following chapter. Oda dropped the ball. What else is there to say?
>>
>>101351724
Just because everything isn't exactly how you want it doesn't mean Oda dropped the ball. Why don't you whine directly at Oda and maybe he'll send you an apology letter?

>>
>>101351893
When did I say I wanted to write the fight? You assume wrong. I guess critics of all kinds just want to take over the creative process, right? Oda knows how to create a set up and a satisfying follow up. This was definitely not one of them. He could have thought up any number of options of how the fight could have turned out. Instead he jumps ship and swims off to something else completely. It was just disappointing, that it was.
>>
>>101352371
The way it happened is the way that makes the most sense. Sure he could have done it another way, but the way he did it was fine.

Gotta disagree. Maybe it would have made more sense if Oda didn't go for that kind of set up. Unfortunately, he did, and as the consequence the things he decided to follow it up with seemed very slow by comparison. And what's more is that the follow ups were pretty standard stuff for Oda, but because he hyped the shit out of that CClown exchange and the fight that was about to take place, the things he switched to seemed like a crawl to get through. Bad decision on his part.

You can't blame Oda for you giving yourself false expectations. Everyone and their mother knew that the fight was going to happen mostly off-screen before it even started, because thats what makes the most sense. No one wants the arc villain's powers revealed in a worthless fight at the start of the arc.

You serious? Go back and take a look at the end result. Tell me how many injuries Fujitora or Dofla received in the process of all that. Then tell me what Law looks like in comparison. You're a retard if you think Law made them use any of their best tricks. And again, Oda can make one sided fights great. It's not like he only had the option to switch to other things. Why hype something if it's not to be followed through in some way or another? The only reason I can think of is incompetency. Yet, Oda is not incompetent. It makes no sense why it was handled so poorly.

They took him down probably without breaking a sweat and definitely without getting hurt. That is not interesting to you? After Law cut a fucking mountain in the last arc? We all know that Oda has a hard on for strictly Luffy, Sanji and Zoro to fight the biggest battles. Law himself said to Dofla that he would get burned if he underestimated the strawhats. As irrational as Oda's boner is for Luffy and Sanji and Zoro, it seems like watching Law get stomped would have given Oda a boost for his erection when Luffy beats him. The fight wouldn't have even lasted long. But we all know Luffy is probably going to beat Dofla, the main villain, as per usual for OP arcs, so what better way to showcase Luffy's strength than by him beating the guy who beat the guy who sliced a damn mountain in half? To me it's clear that whatever happened, it was interesting, and Oda fucked up. I love him, but he fucked up.
>>

>>
>>101355122
I've heard that theory. That alone doesn't match up with White Beard's description, however, because there's not much to stop super strong pirate alliances from crossing the red line and taking on armies of the other parts of the world. Wiping out the red line would make it easier for that purpose, but it was still possible before that were to happen. And first of all, the red line being wiped out isn't going to alone trigger war in everyone's mind. Why would it? White Beard make one piece seem like it alone is enough for everyone to lose their shit.
>>
>>101355999
See those bandages? Luffy got his ass fucking destroyed by the OP bigshots. Basically the only reason he managed to recover was acknowledging that he had to keep moving forward for the sake of other people who all put their trust in him.
>>
>>101355909
But it is interesting. You can keep saying it's not all you want, it doesn't make it true. The only one-sided fights which Oda even does anymore is with fucking cannon fodder. Law is not cannon fodder, and seeing him getting owned would have made the enemies even more strong.

>>101356808
It would have added nothing. We got the same exact effect by it happening off-screen, plus we didn't waste several chapters. Its perfectly fine for you to prefer it to have been another way, but you can't say it was objectively bad because it was the option that makes the most sense.

Quick Summary of the newest One Piece ep:
>Fujitora scene's pacing was terrible, he actually stands up and slashes them and walks around before crushing them. Although someone can just edit it to be exactly like the manga and just remove all the crap Toei added.
>Episode ended on Luffy learning about Ace's Mera Mera just like the chapter
>No Doffy Executives shown
>>
>Chapter 702 covers 4 pages less than usual
>Toei ends the previous episode before Fuji does his gravity thing to compensate
>The episode covering 702 ends on the same place as the chapter but complete skips over showing the executives
>Instead shows filler with Kinemon getting lost for 3 minutes and Fujitora slicing thugs for 5 minutes
>Showing the executives would have been entirely possible if Toei had forsaken literally 1 minute of that padding

??????
How does Toei think?
>>
>>101357593
TOEI a shit.

Seriously,they they only had one major scene to do good on.The director for the storyboard of this ep is a moron

>>101357449
Not every villain has been a user. The guards have to be at least vice admiral status. Shackles can be broken by the stronger ones.
>>101357280
This again, huh? Well, let me say that I never said it was objectively bad. I just said it was bad. Not bad because everyone knew the fight wasn't gonna go in Law's favor. Bad because there was a set up that entailed it was supposedly going to be one of the most tense things in the arc, but the follow up didn't even touch upon it until it was over. If the set up wasn't written as the focus of the two chapters that it was in, it would have been all good, because it would have been treated as a side thing. You don't treat the fight set up as the focus, then use a bait and switch. It makes it seem like the writer doesn't know what he wants to focus on.

Oh, of course. I'm pretty sure ever since the ancient weapons came into questioning, people have been anticipating the one piece as being one of them.
>>
>>101358723
We've seen two of the ancient weapons, or at least one of them and know what the second is. Only question is the final weapon, but I don't think that it's also the One Piece, because that would make it particularly special beyond the bounds of already being an ancient weapon. We'll probably see Uranus before getting to Raftel. Maybe Pluton as well, since Robin knows where it is after reading the Alabasta poneglyph.

So did you just ignore everything that happened on Enies Lobby, then? Of course she considers herself apart of the crew. Why do you think her conversation with Kuzan was so relevant? That over-the-top shit that Chopper, Nami, and Ussop does is completely out of her character (she also wouldn't dock with Franky on Thriller Bark).

Mythic is a mixed bag, the Phoenix Fruit just gives you flight+godmode regen. Unless you're strong enough to beat your opponent it doesn't give you any benefits besides being able to tank for your allies.

He did NOT beat Moriah in one fight; he couldn't even handle his kaze monster during their first encounter.

The Davy Back arc was extremely short and Foxy was a joke villain anyway, not the main antagonist of the Water 7 arc (Which was Lucci, whom he didn't beat the first encounter, either).

The Hody fight was a showcase of Luffy's post-timeskip abilities, and I don't think we're gonna see Oda take that approach on a FV anymore for a while.

What's far more likely is that Oda's gonna dust off the classic trope of Luffy being put in some type of trap or circumstance where he's stuck like he did in Water 7 until the near end of the arc.

Of course, DD still hasn't explained his controlling abilities yet, and we are really close to his first encounter with Luffy, so I'm willing to bet Luffy gets trapped in that attack pretty soon.

They were going to be pretty important early on but then Oda got side tracked by ADVENTURE. Who really knows how much the direction and sequence of events have changed since Oda's original plans way back when, but you can clearly feel a different tone for the series in the first ten volumes or so.

Just of the top of my head; Dragon, Black Beard, Smoker, Shanks, Kaidou, and others were mentioned a lot at first, then went went AWOL for dozens of volumes.

Wtf? Opening your eyes? You are allowed to have your own opinion of the anime, man. I don't understand why someone else's opinion would influence you especially since you are already watching it.

If you don't think it's good, that's something that I can't disagree with and it's certainly your right to hold that opinion, but don't tell me that I can't think it's good or get enjoyment out of it. I dont' enjoy the filler, so i skip it and it never becomes an issue for me, I have never had a problem with the pacing of the show and, being a manga reader, i enjoy seeing some scenes extrapolated on in ways the manga does't have time to, and the animation reminds me of Dragonball, which i like.

>>
>>101368844
The pacing has become crap, but to anime only viewers, they can barely tell the difference. Hell I'm sure even some manga readers like the suspenseful drawn out pacing, which may seem crazy to us but I'm sure they're out there.

>>101367939
Poison occurs in nature a lot. Insects, fish, birds, plants...
>>
>>101368568
Sorry, I've seen that word posted several times in the course of the conversation, I just assumed you were the same person. Anonymity...

Any, if being the original is your standard for good then it's definitely good. My only point in this debate is that everyone has different standards for what makes something good. Someone calling your standard for good "wrong" is just as bad as calling someone else's standard for good "wrong".

I read and watch and I don't mind the pacing.

I just realized she's leaning over from her chair and not laying on her side.

Thefuck?
>>
>>101368992
Poison doesn't occur the same way lightning, ice, fire, smoke, and mud occur, which is without being synthesis inside the organs (or leaves) of a host.
>>
>>101369233
I didn't even realize it until you just said it.
>>
>>101368974
That's just conditioning. Having this kind of pacing serves no purpose. Infinite stares don't add meaning, filler fights mislead the actual capabilities of the fighters, etc. That's what I meant by objective inferiority
If you can name me recurring (as recurring as the ones I mentionned) tropes in the manga that are as useless and absent in the anime, then I'll reconsider.
>>
So what's the deal with religion in One Piece? Kuma walked around with that bible and you can see churches in some villages. There was also that satanic cult.
>>
>>101368308
If you value your sanity you won't watch the anime.

Also, Pandaman does not impede story telling

>>101369283
I know for a fact I've seen that image over 100 times since it came out and I feel really dumb. The last time I re-read OP I had a few moments like this and it's the excuse I give for when I'm re-reading and not reading my backlog.

It got a good doujin, which is pretty good considering that 90% of all One Piece doujins are shit.

Pandaman 2016

>>101369552
Not until we're told Pandaman is a part of Barts crew and was ordered to follow Luffy.

Previous occupation
>>

Dude Bobbins sword looks incredible.
>>
>>101369898
We know he used to be a marine, so he probably got caught up in the crossfire after enjoying a meal and deciding to take care of some pirates.
>>
So who in One Piece has actually died?

>Ace
>WB
>Whiskey Peak bounty hunters
>Vergo
>Monet
>the guys who Magellan executes

Anyone else?

I think he was meaning the shit tier ones, not the number agents.
>>
>>101370374
Vergo I could possibly see staying alive since he has pretty strong Haki and was only in an explosion (which kills no one) and in a room that filled with poison gas
Monet was stabbed in the heart.
>>
>>101370589
The sad fact is that with Oda's track record you have to assume a character could be alive unless you see a dead body and a funeral.
>>
>>101370247
the countless people who have drowned after getting their ships destroyed

the victims of the enies lobby buster call

the marineford casualties
>>
>>101370722
I don't think even a dead body/funeral would do.
>>
>>101370755
They all lived.
>>
Pica, Diamante and Trebel are SHIT tier. Doflamingo offered a seat to Law, whom he expected Vergo to STOMP.

These three should all be around Vergo's level give or take, which should be cake to Zoro and Luffy

I suspect the ones that died were taken out by the unluckies and Mr. 5 and Miss Valentine, Zori beat the shit out of some with the back of his swords, dropping them off ladders and dropping them through holes in a roof, a few he cut, like Igaram and he lived fine.

No one died on Enies Lobby, they evacuated the marines first and the giants took the blow for the Franky family. For shipwrecks, kind of varies, we rarely see it happen directly, Caribou's crew managed to survive the Kraken crushing their ship way underwater.
>>
>>101370908
Oda really needs to step up the death count.
This is the New World, it's meant to be threatening (like the Grand Line was meant to be). So far the only threatening thing about it is the Yonko live there.
>>
>>101370523
They all lived. Oda doesn't kill people.
>>
>>101369390
Well Zoro is clearly some sort of devout nontheist, most other characters believe in God. Christianity and Buddhism are both explicitly referenced. The WG is implied to be religious given how Mariejois is called the "holy land."
>>
>>101370339
I'd thought Zoro's first bounty was for "killing 100 bounty hunters." I guess not.
>>
>>101370247
I think that people are explicitly said to have died in the Alabasta and Marineford Wars, none onscreen though.

Dammit Oda, step it up. Goku murdered fodder all the time and laughed about it later.
>>
>>101371329
Goku only really killed people in dragonball, in Z he only killed 2 people.

Its vaguely referenced from time to time, but I doubt there are any things like major religions probably just more for style than anything. The devil fruits already kind of give people god-like powers.
>>
>>101371400
That's because he sucked ass at finishing the job.
>>
I hope we get a flashback showing how much of a brutal psycho Kuma used to be.
>>
>>101371512
He just always let people live, plus a lot of the ones he might have killed Vegeta stole.
>>
>>101371400
Come to think of it, did he ever actually kill anyone in Z besides Buu? Who is the other one?

Of course in Dragon Ball he very nonchalantly kills people in the RRA and such.
>>
>>101371623
Yakkon.
>>
>>101371329
He probably does very few onscreen deaths because 1. it's still published in a kid's magazine and 2. it makes actual onscreen deaths seem like a really big deal
>>
>>101371824
It wouldn't be that bad if he didn't have so many heroic sacrifices.
>>
>>101371952
Its the thought that counts.
>>
>>101370374
Unless vergo had a way to avoid Caesar's poison I don't see him surviving, and Monet's death was explicit. No question about her status.

>>101371512
The moral of the story was compassion, obviously. He's an archetype.

>>101371032
Oda already stated his views on killing people. I don't think people dying really makes the story better at all, anyway.
>>
>>101372063
The problem is how much attention it draws to the weird fact that absolutely no one ever dies.
>>
>>101372147
I know his views, but his views ruin the atmosphere.
>>
>>101372147
>Unless vergo had a way to avoid Caesar's poison I don't see him surviving, and Monet's death was explicit. No question about her status.
You say that, but if Oda wants to bring someone back he won't hesitate. Hell, he doesn't even give a reason he just does it.

He regets Pell as it is.
