Sabo is alive and kicks all that ass: https://soundcloud.com/nightshadezero/voice-ask-sabo-vs-jesus/s-IcXwM
Dirty cunts thinking he wasn't a monster.
Also, one piece 737 is out.
Sabo is the best character of all time
Beast mode sabo is coming through
good job spoiling
Barto is crying?
>adds another one piece costume to his cosplay lineup
man it's gonna be a taxing year
It's Bon Clay you dumbfucks.
Great spoilers moron
Raws to not count as "out"
You are a newfaggot to the 9th degree
>Rebecca's dumbfounded look
She knows she's shit.
Is it just me or do Burgess' arms change size in that picture? They're way shorter in the first panel than they are in the fifth
Also, all the gorosei are old looking as fuck- although maybe they all look old because Bonney was missing for so long? Maybe they will look younger after the time skip, I forget, did they get an "Around the world" picture post time skip like Bon Clay and others? I don't remember seeing one. If they look younger, this is definitely the case and this theory can basically be 100% confirmed. If they are still old as fuck, then no she does not de-age them. I also doubt she de-ages anyone but the Gorosei since Garp was one of the strongest soldiers and he is old as fuck. Maybe he said no to it because of his pride though, because that would explain why Sengoku looks so youthful. Hell, the dude didn't even have a single gray/white hair at Marineford, meanwhile Garp looks like salt and pepper because he's an old fart. Then once sengoku quit the marines he looked much, much older. 3) is the most likely IMO because it makes the most sense to me, Akainu as an admiral is pretty much the Celestials' lap dog who does their every command. He probably captured Bonney, she promised her old family of shit heads she would go back to being good and then immediately took her first chance to escape and run away. It can't be hard to escape a celestial dragon. Fisher Tiger managed to burn their holy city and free a huge number of their slaves single handedly, sure he wasn't a fucking wimp but he didn't have a mega high bounty for it either. you'd think burning mariejois would give you something in the billions of berries, but his was what, only a couple hundred million? that's less than what luffy got for crashing into enies lobby and kicking the shit out of lucci and freeing ONE dangerous prisoner. Either that, or the bounty guy sucks ass at his job, which is already true.
Where are the Sabo is weak fags now?
Greentexting doesn't make your *action* any less cancerous.
how fucking new are you that you think greentexting actions are cancer?
Hm. Barto is crying, makes me wonder if he will turn around and become Sabos biggest fan and end up following him all around and thusly helping out the revolutionaries. Hell, his first mate is called a "missionary" and some anon joked last thread it was for the religion of luffy. I could see that happening, as luffy gains more fame and recognition people start idolizing him and worshiping him, like they did with Roger.
I've been hitting up these threads since sabo was introduced and I've never seen a "sabo is weak" fag
>grabs you by the throat
BACK THE FUCK OFF?!?!?!
how fucking new THIS
>whips out dick
Go to bed yiff.
Is the translated version out yet?
35% complete, it'll be out in about 2 hours
>Robin using her DF powers for something other than grapples
I am pleased.
The characters showcasing their talents this chapter are pretty cool. Pica, Diamante, Jesus, Sabo, even Trebol.
Bart cries a lot when it's concerning the Strawhats. He blubbered a lot when he saw and spoke to Zoro, remember? Since it was probably revealed to him that Sabo is Luffy's "older brother", it's only natural he'd be full of admiration for him.
oh, huh, realized I left the page number there
take off the #8
Thanks for the ETA, anon.
Could some moon speaker please translate what Trebols DF is?
Pedo pedo no mi
It's the Sticky Sticky Fruit, apparently.
Is Sabo just too strong or is Jesus just too shitty? Or maybe it's both?
This is just a rough translation, but basically It's the pleasure of being cummed inside fruit. Now his gooey form makes a lot more sense.
how many logia's this crew have. fuck. hell, pica might be one as well.
>you turn into an antropomorphied bear and proceed to try capturing lolis.
Jesus is really strong. Sabo is just stronger. I honestly can't believe that some people thought Sabo won't be one of the top dogs of One Piece
They're just two top class people
Sabo has been training far longer than Ace did and went to the grand line straight away, so of course he's the strongest brother. This in turn gives Luffy something to aim towards in the future, and surpass.
TN: Pedo means fart in spanish
>Sabo is just stronger
just because he stopped his attack? it looks like they are mostly on par right now. not a burgessfag, would love if he gets rekt next chapter but people are trying way to hard to start a flamewar here.
It depends on how strong the Revolutionaries are. Jesus makes himself known to be strong, but we don't know how powerful Sabo could be at this point.
It'd be kinda a shame if a Blackbeard member gets offed this early in the New World.
I like how robin eyes is shaped on the wall at the last page.
He didn't only stop his attack; he broke Jesus' haki coated armor.
So, hey, Jesus may be physically stronger than him, but Sabo's CoA is likely superior.
Oda is a shitty artist. I don't understand why he hasn't hired someone else to draw One Piece.
There were a couple of people saying they'd drop the manga if Sabo was stronger than Burgess. And others arguing that Sabo was weak because he probably wasn't trained directly by Dragon.
Only the tip of his elbow is covered and Haki and still is while he clashes Sabo
It's just the normal armor that shatters, nothing special
also, Sabo's attack is called "Dragon Claw"
isn't Burgess Blackbeard's right hand man?
Actually, you see the coating extend to the rest of his arm in the 4th panel, past at least the top most row of spikes lining his armor..
sadpanda is oot
its out on panda
>also, Sabo's attack is called "Dragon Claw"
Also, how is that relevant? I don't understand why you brought that up.
So Pica controls rocks
Assimilates rock, he doesn't create rock.
So Paramecia, not Logia.
So if we're to trust the translation as being correct, it seems that Pica really is a Paramecia DF user.
Not him, but i think it can't be a coincidence that his attack is named after his mentor.
>Blackbeard is supposed by 10 Captains
Oh boy here we go.
Man fuck I can't wait to see Dragon fight
Holy shit where is this from and why haven't I seen it before
>Trebol has the beta beta fruit
Pica sure has a troublesome ability.
So most of Blackbeard's original team mates are giants, right?
Yeah, I brought that up too in the last thread. I just don't understand how it's relevant in what we were talking about?
>Ate the beta-beta
One of the fighters (the fishman, Hack) is part of the revolutionaries
Wait did I get that right? Trebol is the highest executive?
So that's why he's so disgusting and creepy and doesn't know what personal space means
Not sure how reliable this translation is though.
>Zoro challenges a boss monkey tao drinking game
> It created an air hole in the audience
>The pirate Blackbird
Lots of other things sound awkward too.
Yeah it's Mangapanda. It's shit but it's better than nothing right now.
Mangapanda is fucking terrible. That's why they can get it out <20 minutes after the raw.
>Lets create a contract
Contracts are usually two ways, so maybe there is a catch to how this power works. Since as it currently stands it's a bit overpowered
Toy Soldier is going to ruin Lao G's day when he gets turned back into Riku, goddamn.
BREAK NEXT WEEK
FUCK YOU ODA YOU LAZY FAGGOT
>>Zoro challenges a boss monkey to drinking game
That's the coverpage art.
So why does beta-beta have shackles around his legs?
And why the serious fuck is Usopp not the one sniping a ball of Tabasco into someone's mouth?
>Pica attacks Luffy with no result shown
>Sabo and Burgess clash evenly
>Robin and Ussop find Sugar
>Cavendish a toy
Getting real sick of your set up chapters Oda
>user of the beta beta fruit
>he's wearing a shackle
It saddens me that the dwarves thought of using tabasco before Usopp did.
Usopp probably conveniently has some plant made to knock out small girls or some shit.
I know I was just offering examples of bad translations in the first couple pages
How badly is that dwarf going to fuck up the grape thing.
On a scale of one to Sanji.
Some toys somehow got out of the contract and regained their free will, so there's probably some sort of catch, yes.
So, who's stronger, Jesus Burgess or Diamond Jaws?
The fate of the toys is actually pretty fucking sad now that I think about it. Cavendish panicking how this has to be a nightmare and wondering wether he has to work here for the rest of his life made me wonder about the toys that have been working under Doflamingo for many years now and gave up every hope on being rescued.
Especially because they know everyone forgot them and that noone would even come to their rescue.
So when is the next chapter out.
Week after next week or further down?
I don't know how WSJ issues are numbered but it usually says "OP is on a break next week" except now it stated the no. of the WSJ issue so I imagine the gap is larger.
I bet the dwarves mess it up and usopp will recover the grape and shoot it in, being a hero.
wake up! wake up! wake up heart beat!!!
They just clashed, we have yet to see the full fight.
There's steam coming from burguess elbow armor, does he have a reject dial there or its just pure strenght?
Jesus is basically Blackbeard's Jaws and Jaws only has one arm now, so....
>Sugar eats the grape
>It isn't even hot
>Dwarves are pussies
I was kind of assuming some jet dial-like, from new world skypiea or something.
I think most toys break down and are sent to the trash heap before they begin to lose hope while working (though they probably lose hope once they've been trashed).
It is out on faggotpanda.
Dofla seem charismatic but everything he does is plain evil.
- slave auction house, ditches it like it's not a big deal
- usurps Riku's kingdom (takes it back, but I imagine the Doflamingo family back in the day was ruthless like him) in a fucked up way making the people hate Riku
- destroys entire cities for Baby5
- has Cesar experiment on children
- this entire toy thing
>all this setup for amazing fights
God fucking damn it.
>Sabo has been Dragon's adoptive son for the past 10 years
>He uses an attack called 'Dragon Claw'
Reminder that Dragon doesn't have any devil fruit and has his name purely because he attacks with scratching attacks.
The toys who have accepted their fate seem to have gotten control over their body again.
Wonder how Toy Soldier did it though. He's the only toy who can fight against the Doflamingo family and doesn't listen to Lao G's words
The steam is probably created from the force of his elbow blows. Like when Luffy uses his jet pistol (or when he uses Gear Second); his fists leave behind steam because of how quickly and how strongly he moves.
He has the nail nail fruit. He can change the length of his nails at will.
He's the most evil motherfucker in One Piece so far. But you still have to love him
>Reminder that Dragon doesn't have any devil fruit
Most retarded post i've read in a long time.
Me bet on Dragon is that his CoC is so fucking powerful he can bind weather to his will.
So is Pica a Logia or Paramecia?
There is zero evidence that Dragon has a DF.
There is zero evidence that Dragon is even a strong dude.
>Dwarf accidentally activate a Buster Call
>yfw we actually get a fucking Buster Call on Dress Rosa
Paramecia. He doesn't create stone, he absorbs it.
>There is zero evidence that Dragon has a DF
>There is zero evidence that Dragon is even a strong dude.
He has Ivankov and Kuma under his command
>suddenly right elbow
good job, Oda.
Usopp confirmed for coward
wind fruit seems likely though
Weaklings don't gather entire armies around themselves, at least not in shonen they don't.
>on break next week
>There is zero evidence that Dragon has a DF.
>There is zero evidence that Dragon is even a strong dude.
that's right, but you must be a humongous retard if you really think Dragon will be weak.
It's his new schedule 4 weeks on 1 week off. At least now he can get more than four hours sleep a day.
are you literally retarded?
>Don't like loli, much prefer milfs
Why is Sugar so bloody cute?
So has this become a regular thing now?
Is there going to be 2-3 chapters per month rather than the usual 4?
That's mangapanda fucking up as usual.
Next chapter should be about sanji and franky.
He punches with the right elbow. The left elbow is infront because he charges
Why do you assume Dragon has a devil fruit? There's never been any evidence that he does.
Nami said that storm was coming a long time before it happened.
SJW makes Oda take a break every few chapters now because of his poor health.
There'll be a break every 4 chapters + holiday breaks
There was a storm with lighting. Happens all the time. Weather science exists and is a thing, and Dragon has an entire army of dudes behind him. One of them might have a palm fan fruit or something.
>He has Ivankov and Kuma under his command
Because he's a leader. He's not the world's strongest man, he's the world's most wanted man. Not because he's strong, but because of his ideals. Because he stands against the WG with his revolutionary influence. Not because MUSCLES
He was preparing his elbow for the blow. It's easier to hit harder when you wind up.
On a scale from 1 to Buster Call, how big will the shitstorm in Dress Rosa be once everyone regains their memories?
So the announcer did say that Blackbeard had 10 captains, right?
Grey terminal then.
If Sabo is this strong and he isn't even a super high ranking Revolutionary member, this means the leader of the Revolutionaries, Dragon would one-shot Blackbeard and his crew in an instant without even batting an eyelid.
See the armor, idiot.
i love the onepiece nedroid comics
yep the rest of the crew are the Captains.
Aokiji is the 10th
I bet it won't affect her and they realized she's much stronger than they thought.
Come on you're literally grasping at straw here.
The wind was unnatural, it blew everyone in the town away and saved Luffy from Smoker.
You don't follow someone who's weaker than you in a world where people literally have superpowers.
He's the world's most wanted man and noone ever came close to capturing him. Tells you a lot about his power
Each one of his subordinates is captain of a ship in Blackbeards fleet.
Damn, he's still sick? The curse of mangaka has got to him it seems.
Hopefully OP does not have to end abruptly.
The grapes were spicy all along
>dozens and dozens of new world super pirates all get mad at Dofla.
The moment Sugar goes down, Dofla has to spread his cheeks.
>mfw all chan-ners are Beta Beta no mi
Are they okay? will they ever come back? ;_;
screencap this: the dwarf is going to fuck up and eventually usopp is going to shoot that thing in her mouth.
Jesus was always shitty.
Jesus needs two hands to lift a building.
Meanwhile, Zoro, prior to the timeskip was already lifting a building with one hand.
Also, Jesus was pretty useless against Ace.
As a matter of fact, pretty much Blackbeard's entire crew was useless against Ace.
>B-but Nami said that storm was coming a long time before it happened.
Holy fuck what do you expect from a weather genius, do you actually think lighting stroke buggy preventing him from killing luffy?
Sanji is cooking muffins right now for Big Mom
That much is obvious.
If that happens my life will have to end abruptly. As in i'll kill myself.
>you're literally grasping at straw here
>The wind was unnatural, it blew everyone in the town away and saved Luffy from Smoker.
Cool. No evidence Dragon farted at them.
>You don't follow someone who's weaker than you in a world where people literally have superpowers.
We only wish we were shackled to the floor in a loli's room.
He's got through impression that he's strong.
This feels like a Don Krieg is stronger than Jozu argument
I bet Senor Pink wanders in and eats it.
That's just how hard boiled he is.
He'll either stay and fight or flee and plan a counterattack.
Why is that people want this so badly? A weak man having more fame than power, we already have buggy and probably the gorosei, pretty much sure Kaidou and Dragon will be strong because that's how shonen works.
He already has 10 crew members who can be captains without Aokiji
You're a fool if you think the horse horse no fruito zoan captain isn't the strongest.
That is what everyone SAID ABOUT SENGOKU before Marineford.
Fuck, the SENGOKUFAGS ARE BACK DESPITE GETTING FUCKING TOLD ON MARINEFORD WHEN SENGOKU BECAME A BUDDHA.
Well, before the timeskip, Blackbeard had 9 crewmates. 10 if you include the horse.
So.....the implications here are either.....Blackbeard recruited someone during the timeskip (Aokiji?) or....the horse is the captain of its own ship.....
Guess why we're so sticky..
Hey, I can lift a heavy box using my arms alone, but that doesn't mean it's the best way to lift.
These are the kinds of things you learn on leg day, anon.
>say you hate the WG
>become the worlds most wanted man
dragon is weak fag logic
Why don't you save that shit until you actually know Sabo's rank in the revolutionary army, or just more about them in general.
They'll be the rescue party by bringing hell with them.
>Cool. No evidence Dragon farted at them.
The wind literally appeared out of nowhere after Dragon told Smoker to get off of Luffy. You have to be in full denial mode to think that Dragon didn't summon it
Sengoku didn't do jack shit though.
You sound as retarded as those youtube bloggers going apeshit because sabo is alive.
he fucking leads with one elbow and then spins or twirls to hit with the other - aka using his momentum properly. thats how you fucking slam someone.
>Shoot that thing in her mouth
>He's the world's most wanted man and noone ever came close to capturing him. Tells you a lot about his power
No, that means he's smart, not strong.
Sabo was Ace's rival
Ace was 3rd in rank in Whitebeard's Crew.
It stands to reason that Sabo would also be the same 3rd rank as Ace in the Revolutionaries.
Learn to RIVALRY.
>dream comes true and you have your own personal loli to watch over
>she hates you, tells you you're disgusting and tells you to die
>new shichibukai hype
The revolutionaries might not have a power based ranking, Sabo could be the strongest man after Dragon but we know Ivankov/kuma is a more important agent.
>the storm just so happens to free luffy from being executed milliseconds before getting his head chopped off
Yeah total chance guys, Dragon definitely had no part of it. Didn't care about his stupid son anyway.
Right. Except there's still no actual evidence that he did and you're conjecturing.
sanji is forced to watch pekoms rape nami
>Storm is coming
>Idiot is up on a high platform waving metal about
It was always going to happen.
Yeah, the mother fucking SON of GARP turns out to be a weakling. Sureeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
How do you fucking get that wrong?
>person doesn't display an ability
>he totally has an ability, just like this other guy that never showed his ability until he did
Absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence taken too far here, mates.
I actually wouldn't doubt that Sanji's cooking skills are going to come into play during their encounter with Fat Mum. We haven't really seen much of his Vital Recipes post-timeskip.
Again, Dragon has a literal army. Prove that he himself did something.
Alright. So you believe that Luffy's execution being stopped by lightning and Luffy being saved from Smoker by wind are huge enormous coincidences and the fact that Dragon was there has absolutely nothing to do with it?
>Sabo and Ace set off to become captains of their own pirate crew
>Both ended up being 3rd ranked scrubs under bigshots
How long until Luffy joins Shanks and becomes his third place man?
Prove that he didn't
this is my fetish
You don't know how making claims works, do you.
stop replying to people saying Dragon has no DF
they are trolling, no one can be this retarded
they are trying to derail this thread into pointless arguments
I remember when people argued Akainu wouldn't have a Devil Fruit with the same logic
Best Arc Ever
This is the new "Sabo is dead, you faggots".
Prove that I dont.
>10 giant captains
unless Stronger is a captain, then Blackbeard must have gotten another super strong guy.
There is so much speculation in that statement it sounds like it came from Ken Ham.
You're making the claim that Dragon didn't have anything to do with it.
Proof is not a one-way thing you faggot
le aokiji face
Will Aokiji be Robin's opponent?
There is no evidence that Buggy hasn't been hiding his true strength from the beginning.
There is no evidence that Buggy is not Pirate God tier right now.
But it has logic. Assuming everyone who hasn't displayed an ability will have an ability is ridiculous.
Sugar porn where?
that would be stupid and you know it
His real name might also be Buggy D. Clown.
Yeah I put a lot of logic into it. Assuming everyone who is weak isn't strong is ridiculous.
after all these years.
It would make sense really. There would be two options. Aokiji wants to backstab BB, so hes going for sneaky justice. OR he wants BB to be pirate king to create stability and then go from there. Its kind of like supporting palpatine in starwars so the universe could be united and lawful.
He will seek justice and fucking over pirates by becoming a pirate and out pirating the shit out of them.
If Aokiji was a Captain it would have been said, unless he just gained the potion and nobody knows it's him yet.
so what happened to marco and the rest of the whitebeard pirates
did they disband? did marco become captain? did he become a shichibukai?
Better topic, Jesus Burgess is using impact dials.
No, I'm making the claim that there is no proof that Dragon himself has superpowers that were responsible for what happened there.
Assuming that everyone who hasn't displayed an ability doesn't have an ability is just as ridiculous.
He sailed with Roger, and made it all the way to Raftel.
Honestly how can he NOT be stronk as fuark
Then make a claim where the storm came from.
No evidence sure, but a major coincidence and knowing Oda, a connection will inevitably be made.
It's pretty much confirmed that AoKiji is with the BB pirates right now, doesn't mean he won't betray them at one point.
We don't know that. Could be a lot of things causing steam.
Why would I do that? My claim is that we don't know because there's no evidence of where it came from.
Deal with it.
Then you can just stop posting, because what you're doing isn't doing anything at all except sounding stupid
Aokiji is working with Black Beard. In fact, Burgess is trying to get the fire fruit for him.
Black Beard shared the secret of getting multiple fruits with him, so now he's trying to become the Fire and Ice man.
Please go away.
No, it's natural. We don't know what we don't know until we know. The only things that mark you have an ability other than using it are susceptibility to water and Seastone.
We've seen neither used on Burgess or Dragon. Don't assume he has an ability instantly.
>make a claim where the storm came from.
The sky. I have evidence that the sky has done it before, it's definitely in its M.O. Lightning practically has a vendetta against Luffy, too.
Stronger might count as 10.
No. Cry more.
From what i got from that conversation between Jesus and BB they'd only recently made contact with Aokiji so i have my doubts it's him. But it would be cool if he was.
I know who this anti-Dragon guy is. He's an e anti-Sabo fag. Hahahaha , ah how nostalgic. Remember how there was no proof Sabo was alive?
Sabo is still dead. It's Bon Clay.
In just a few chapters, we will see Doflamingo losing his shit. It's a shame it's on break now though.
No way he is already a commander/captain apart of the Blackbeard Pirates fleet, Burgess was still wondering if they can trust him, it must be a new character.
He's fucking up this thread so we need to stop responding to his dumbass.
you could be right. but another new character out of the blue would be shit.
like with Avalo Pizarro. Oda could have at least drop his name before showing him.
That still bothers me.
It's the return of THE GATEKEEPER OF SPECULATION. AWW SHIT WATCH OUT EVERYONE. YOU AREN'T ALLOWED TO USE YOUR IMAGINATION FOR FUN IN THIS THREAD ANYMORE.
Could doffy's day possibly get any shittier?
Trebol confirmed for beta as fuck
He works more than you, ya aspie neckbeard phaggot
It's not the "using your imagination" that's annoying, it's the insistence they're right when the most they have IS speculation.
>he shut us down with logic, better call him names!
No. I'm not calling you stupid because of an insult. I'm calling you stupid because you lack the ability to use logic.
Here is a simplified example for you:
I have a room, a box in the room, a ball next to the box and a Person.
Person goes into the room and closes the door.
Person comes out.
Ball is now inside the box.
Can I prove that the person put the ball in the box? No. Is it logical that the person put the ball in the box? Yes.
Doflamingo will flee.
Dressrosa is VERY soon ending, as the following arc (Zo) is going to be massive. He'll flee there and then the shit will really start going down (he'll cry to his dad, baww, pirates hurt me, etc, and the more Admirals will be sent to sort out the lowborn scum that touched him).
but he doesn't work more than any other mangaka.
he's one of the laziest out there. the guy who makes fairy tail drops 30+ pages (one time a 50 page chapter just because) with color spreads every 4 weeks and maybe took like 2 or 3 breaks the last year
Except, again, Dragon has a literal army of dudes with many weird DFs.
Seriously pay attention.
>pretty much confirmed
You never disappoint, internet.
>10 captains + Blackbeard
> If Stronger is not captain, then there is one more blackbeard
> 8 strawhats + Luffy
Does this mean there are TWO more crewmates??
Kinemon + Barto FTW!
It makes perfect sense why burges was like 'come on bruh hes the popo' because BB had already decided to partner with him and make him a commander. They are both using each other. Like i said here >>101554807
Its aokiji going for the dirty justice mayne. They will use eachother and the someone will make a move. BB gets close to a powerful logia and aokiji gets whatever the fuck hes tryin to do.
Jinbei + Samurai = 10 crew members.
Both have been confirmed by Oda.
don't you mean beheheheheta?
You forgot the part where dofla is going to mass puppet everything pitou style and start a war.
So does anyone still think Zoro and Luffy are gonna one-shot Pica now?
When was a Samurai confirmed? Post a link to the exact page where a samurai agreed to join the crew or even hinted they wanted to. I must have missed that page somehow.
we won't get any more crewmates, please stop with that shitty meme
we already have too many, Brook was already unnecessary. the pacing got way slower, because Oda have to make scenes and fights with every crwemember and his tragic backstory was also forced as fuck
You see the reason why people are assuming Burgess doesn't have a Devil Fruit and why Dragon has one are different. There is no "default" choice. You're just making as much of a claim as the other one by saying "Burgess has no DF". In Burgess case you can argue with logic that it makes sense for him to have none. He's a physical fighter, is already involved in fighting and hasn't displayed an ability.
Counterarguments would be that it's said that Blackbeard is collecting Devil Fruits and that Burgess might actually indeed have one.
With Dragon the logical arguments are that the storm favored Luffy, who Dragon wanted to save.
It saved Luffy from the execution and from being captured. He hasn't been involved in fighting and doesn't look like a physical fighter.
did he call u last night and confirmed it?
I was waiting for it.
Still might happen.
But this is Oda we're talking about, so it's going to get dragged out.
Oda has said he wants a Samurai in the crew.
Do you think it's a coincidence they're going to Samurai Samurai Island?
not likely, though it seems like it'll be a interesting fight since he has control of the terrain
No, he didn't.
And noone was present at Logue Town. If there was you would have a logical argument, but Dragon was shown alone, making him the only suspect.
This is logic.
Sexy samurai woman with meat when?
Grape bikini doesn't count.
To mark them as slaves, the Celestial Dragons mark them with the symbol called "The Hoof of the Soaring Dragon" (天駆ける竜の蹄 Ama Kakeru Ryū no Hizume?, FUNimation subs translate this as the Claw of the Celestial Dragons), forever marking them as "less than human".
>Guy is a castle wall
>Made of stone
>Zoro and Luffy can destroy metal
Why shouldn't he be one shot?
yes. they will be unharmed next chapter because luffy just made a haki belly balloon to protect them. after that double attack to take Pica down OR Zoro will fight him while Luffy and Vivi go on.
I want to see Pica's personality. I hope he's like Usopp, internally shitting himself at the sight of everything.
>Oh fuck it's Roronoa Zoro, he can cut through steel I am so fucking boned I'd better wallclap
>OH COME ON
That doesn't seem likely. I think you're underestimated his DF abilities and apparently discounting the fact that he has CoCK haki. He isn't as weak as you're making him out to be.
Things that make you blackbeard pirate:
1. Name based on true pirate
2. Ugly as shit. Preferably fat or hulking or really tall figure
3. Believes in predestination
4. Has counterpart job with Strawhats
I expect this, but with a completely different dark twist which causes Usopp in his Sogeking persona to unleash CoC haki. Gonna be epic as fuck watching Sogeking knock her out with his haki, because as we all know-Usopp is the man who turns his lies into the truth.
Dragon was shown alone, yes. But he's also been shown to travel everywhere with his crew. It is logical to assume he didn't build a single seat raft and just waft across the ocean on it alone.
Or maybe he did. Maybe he has the air air fruit and just flew on over. Who knows.
Will Jesus walk on water?
>Dragon was so named because he was destined to destroy the celestial dragons
>there are people who think Whitebeard wasn't the weakest Yonko at Marineford
Kaido wanted to intercept him before he reached Marineford which means he was confident enough to take him on full force.
I'm sure in his prime Whitebeard would have kicked Kaido in the nuts and would have shat on the other Yonko but the guy was 75 and was sick as shit.
i'd rub my cock on her back
>Ugly as shit.
>calling Vasco ugly
Not cool, man, you know he has a drinking problem.
>I hope he's like Usopp
Wait there are people that like Usopp? He's a pathetic faggot that seems to get more afraid as the series goes on, he's essentially going backwards from his goal. What a shit character. Can't wait till he dies and creates a much needed sense of danger.
not sure if they clashed or if it was just sabo's haki covering the elbow.
>4. Has counterpart job with Strawhats
New fire fruit crew member vs aokiji confirmed.
ALERT THIS IS NOW CANONICALLY TRUE
>YFW the reason why he's always tired is because he ate a seastone fruit
Stronger confirmed to be Inciactus
lol you know nothing. Oda drops at least 20hrs/day on writing one piece the guy works more than most architects, investment bankers, medical students during residency, and oil field workers. Plus he was required by shounen jump to at least take a 1 week break off in order to preserve his health
>There is zero evidence that Dragon is even a strong dude.
>Wait there are people that like Usopp?
He's the most human and developed crewmember. He has symbolic character development and he doesn't get more afraid, he's seemingly at the same level of fear despite the climbing stakes and levels. He's great.
He's more or less the bravest character in the entire series.
>scared as fuck about to declare war on the whole world government
>does it anyway
being brave doesn't mean not being scared, being brave means getting things done despite being scared.
You realize the guy who makes fairy tale just spends his time reading and tracing one piece right?
You DO realize this right? Right?
Except he is an Ice Logia. Seriously what's up with these moronic, baseless claims that have no proof to valid them. Fucking retards.
alright name dem counterparts 1-10 and blackbeard
He managed to slap Cesar with seastone cuffs in midair effectively neutralizing a logia.
Now imagine Sogeking with the ability to stop a fruit user in his tracks remotely first by disabling his/her power and then using his veggie "bullets" to incapacitate them further.
That's where he's headed.
He stopped SMOKAH from swinging his jute.
A stern breeze could manage that.
...hey wait a minute
What I'm assuming is going to happen is that Oda is gonna show one or two chapters with Sanji vs Tamago and Pekoms and Usopp + Robin vs Sugar and Trebol before showing Luffy and Zoro taking the whole castle down.
well it's marginally easier when you don't have to think about the plot
Calm down gatekeeper.
No. The water will walk on him.
Quit being dumb.
We weren't shown how Dragon traveled to Logue Town. He might have traveled alone, like many other people do (Ace, Mihawk, Doflamingo) or he might have his crew with him. But even if he did travel with somebody that somebody was not shown, nor present in Logue Town. And we know that it's not the ability of Ivankov or Kuma and there is also noone else in the Revolutionaries shown who could've done it.
So no matter how you turn it, Dragon is the only one who we can logically assume that he summoned the storm
That's his finishing move.
Buggy is actually probably pretty strong. He just lacks the brains to make any use of it, and he's pretty good at unintentionally getting people to follow him.
>the guy who makes fairy tail drops 30+ pages
And yet he still can't write an entertaining story free of plot holes or asspulls, how about that.
>"In Soviet Russia..."
No, we cannot logically assume anything. We have the most argument for it being Dragon, but to assume it based on so little would be illogical.
I mean, yeah, let's be honest it probably is. But I'm hoping Oda is going to be more creative than that.
Please stop arguing with that guy. He's baiting the hell out of this thread and he won't go away unless we just ignore him.
This. Buggy is the lucky bloke who doesn't need to exert himself even though he can because there are simpler methods to accomplish his goals which he accepts gratefully unlike someone like Luffy. I mean Buggy was a crewmate of the Pirate King, shit doesn't get luckier than that.
I'm glad Oda is taking so many breaks. With Toei's unfaltering antics to barely ever do filler the anime is sure to catch up eventually. Hahahahaha then the anime will be even unbearable to anime faggots. I hope those plebs drop the series for good.
>He's the entire castle!
>They just start punching and cutting the walls
jeez luise, why are you getting so defensive and mad? it's not like i insulted you or anything, i just pointed out how lazy Oda is, especially if you consider how many fucking assistents he has.
Calm your butts.
Dragon can at least use CoA.
I hope the Gorosei are normal people though.
There isn't even any proof Dragon was in Loguetown.
It was probably Meadows.
>yfw Usopp gets it because he is also Luffy's "brother"
Wait who is that guy/toy who mentions Koala?
>Oda takes 1 year break
>anime is 1 panel per episode
>only manga only patricians stick with the series
Thank you based Oda for weeding out the plebs.
Dragons have hoofs?
The fishman she was in contact with.
It was Bon Clay.
The Shark Fishman Karate expert from the group Bart won in.
Hack the fishman
Hack, that fishman from the tournament who was talking to someone (Koala) on the phone.
Hack, the fishman that participated in the tournament.
You used the most retarded example ever. Like a 100% troll example. You are either an idiot or a troll (read, faggot). Take your pick.
who said anything about being defensive we were just pointed out how wrong you are. And trust me I've worked 90 - 100 hrs+ in a week and its very hard to call someone lazy at that point especially when no one else works that much
Who are you to call him lazy? Until you serialized your own manga I don't think you have any authority to call any mangaka lazy, especially considering you don't know anything about his personal life.
They aren't. All of those old fuckers can throw down
If Oda showed it to be someone different that would just be bad writing. There is no hint at a different person. Of course the ability could come from Dragons' weapons or coat or something, but essentially we know that ability stems from Dragon.
The only other person you might argue for is Sabo, because he has a reason to also show up in Logue Town, probably a reason to be hidden and hasn't been shown to have a Devil Fruit.
But that would already be a huge stretch and Sabo is shown to fight without a Devil Fruit so far
While it's true that Oda works a lot of hours it's not hard work.
It's not like he has to push minecarts, come on guys.
It'd give my right ball to have a comic myself.
Or, again, weather science. He's a smart dude after all. Doesn't necessarily have to be a DF.
>It'd give my right ball to have a comic myself.
Then draw one.
>Who are you to call him lazy? Until you serialized your own manga I don't think you have any authority to call any mangaka lazy
>YOU CAN'T SAY THIS DISH TASTES BAD UNLESS YOU ARE A CHEF
Wanpisser logic at its best. You guys sound like mindless Odrones who will defend anything he does.
>Hey, Fishmanisland wasn't so bad
how about you give both of your balls and
start a series called two piece
Yeah that might be it too. Actually Nami's fighting style in top tier would be really cool
>it's not hard work
Confirmed for having never written a story or drawn anything.
and he only draws "moving objects" according to him. releasing weekly must be a pain though. those monthly guys got it made.
>it's not hard work.
I want to punch you in the dick.
I actually agree with this. Once you do something for so long it becomes second nature. The only times I think Oda actually has too much on his plate is when he is working on a movie at the same time. Otherwise I think he should just do his job. If he's actually sick then yeah take a break, everyone has sick days, but don't claim just doing your job is making you sick.
>baiting this hard
Fishman Island really wasn't so bad
Luffy and Zoro have both been breaking things far harder than stone walls for a long time now. If they have a tough time with him at all it won't make any damn sense.
Have you tried working a real job nyugga?
This coming from a guy who is either NEET of works only 30 hours a week at the local gamestop.
Work 100 hours a week then get back to me phaggot
This thread is done. It's been filled with trolls from the start.
But what about.....
especially if you consider that Oda himself said he has already thought out most of the story. He just has to bring it to paer, with the help of assistents. taking a break every 3 weeks is just lazy and also a big faggot move if you're the biggest living mangaka right now. it's your fucking JOB to deliver and to entertain your readers.
Marineford baby pls
Oda is sick from over work, what is the best course of action?
A) Takes a break
B) Rduces the art quality to Hunter x Hunter levels
C) Releases a high quality chapter every week, but dies within 100 chapters.
Damn he's really taking a punch at /a/ with this trevor guy. Fat slimy pedo neackbeard with the beta beta fruit. Shit's insane.
He might fall back and just change the hallway shapes until Zoro gets pissed and cuts the entire palace in half.
But anyway now that we know his power he seems like a gimmicky opponent.
I really hope we get a decent fight out of him but I don't think there'll be one.
Violet was just freaking out since she might not be aware of the true extent of Luffy and Zoro's powers.
I mean we haven't even see them go all out since the timeskip.
>Fishman Island really wasn't so bad
Someone post Oda's work schedule already
I can't stop laughing. I can't, it hurts.
>It's not hard work.
Yes because creating a world, writing a story, thinking of concepts, ideas and characters. Then drawing them all is not time consuming at all.
a break. like stated before it will ruin the anime, thus weed out the plebs that actually like the anime.
>jobless basement dwelling phag whos never worked more than 40 hrs a week detected
Plus he loves his job and it's very very rewarding.
Luffy asked his butt to join and Oda said he wants a samurai. He's already practically a member of the crew at this point after last arc and now this one. It's not official yet but there's plenty of evidence to support the theory that he will join.
>Sabo probably learned this shit from Dragon
>mfw Dragon fights with dragon-theme moves
I just realized how ignorant most anons here about work conditions in Japan
get your shit together and hire some assistents. One Piece is the biggest manga right now, one of the biggest manga ever created, WSJ would even pay for assistents.
So who's the new blackbeard? Is it really kuzan? Its kind of hard to believe a laid back guy would want to do anything with the guys who started a war.
My best bet is that dragon owns a ancient weapon that controls weather that could wipe out a city and the government caught wind . No devil fruit has been powerful enough right now to cause devastating effect on a whole island other than whitebeards gura gura and shiki's devil fruit.
Dofla = Croc
Dressrosa = Alabasta
Kinemon = Vivi
If we follow this logic a member of the Dofla family will join after this is all done.
My bet is Baby 5.
>Only Sabo names his moves "Dragon" because he loves Dragon
>Dragon actually prefers Monkey
>all his attacks are Monkey-themed
>Hiring shady assistants
Enjoy the ending being spoiled.
time consuming =/= hard work
That actually seems pretty likely. We're way overdue for some updates on the Sunny and I'd like to see more about other fights as well. That wall smashing attack makes for a good cliffhanger of sorts for us to not see them again for a while.
>and the government caught wind
Oh they're ABOUT to catch wind.
I don't know about anyone else but if I even try to handwrite a paragraph I feel like I'm suffering from carpal tunnel. Can't imagine drawing as much as Oda does per week. That would kill me hand. I'd rather shovel dirt to be honest.
I would just like to say Dragon has to be fucking powerful because Will of D. Literally every one of these motherfuckers has OP hakxi bullshit, regardless of DF. He's probably Gold Roger tier, but I feel as spread out as One Piece is I doubt Luffy will ever meet him. He will be affected when he activates it, but otherwise I doubt they will meet till the ast arc, and it will be like HunterxHunter where hes like "muh life, muh ideals. go do your own thing, you're strong"
Yeah I have. Have you ever tried drawing something that wasn't shit?
What makes you think an artist's work is inherently less difficult or valuable than whatever you do? What makes your time spent doing whatever you do so much more valuable than mine?
Oda has already four assistants, who've been working for him for a long time. There's really no need for more than that.
>implying he doesn't already have multiple assistants.
What? You think he draws, inks and writes all of this in a week?
You think the editors would allow their main title to be at the whims of one guy?
>telling them the ending
not everyone is as retarded as you
More like Rebecca = Vivi
you forgot chained and controlled by a loli.
rebecca = vivi
hence rebecca will join, hence people will lose their shit
>You think the editors would allow their main title to be at the whims of one guy?
When it's the guy who created the whole thing, yes.
My name is DATE MASAMUNE. I FIGHT WITH MY SIX SWORD STYLE.
More like Violet=Vivi
Thats Brook's Law, right?
They'll rummage through his stuff when he's asleep.
Mad e-cred or $$$ will do that to a person.
>Takes the most breaks of every WSJ mangaka
>There's really no need for more than that.
yes read the bottom panel, he has been converted to the fate-ism religion.
Leo's gonna get snatched out of mid air by Trevor.
oh boo hoo my poor wittle hand is aching.
its called hand excising and braces u unproffesional nobody.
why is post TS One Piece so shit
You're not following the logic through.
It's in their interest for him to have multiple assistants so he doesn't fall behind schedule.
The author (in this case Oda) also wants to be able to put out a chapter each week so it is in his interest to have assistants too.
And all of this is beside the point since he, in fact, does have assistants.
Kubo just took a fucking six week break not too long ago, aside from his regular breaks.
And he also has four assitants (God knows what they're even drawing)
I would be more than okay with this. I was one of the first people rooting for Baby 5 to join because I think her character flaws would make for some interesting scenarios. I still don't think it's going to happen though, and I think trying to make predictions about Dressrosa by comparing it to Alabasta is silly.
Kubo's assistants are only there to remind him which character is who
10/10, why does no one reply to this great shit.
>editing somebody elses work
They are just practicing to be able to mimic his artstyle. Then they will draw bleach doujins once the manga is done.
> not enjoying the actual plot moving
> Power politics
what more do you need?
because it wasn't even slightly funny. stop replying to yourself
He's making the same joke as the guy before with emphazise on the "about". Really don't see what's funny with that
can we stop having one piece generals now after today guys?
we've been having 24/7 threads for too long now.
Holy shit a chapter where it isn't a focused on nobodies at any particular time. What a miracle. Though the toy soldier is practically a nobody in his current state so that was wasted panel time I suppose.
>stop talking about manga on the manga board all the time!
Okay. I'l stop. Promise.
You know what my job is?
I have to take a sponge and wash disgusting old people, then I have to dry them, then have to literally pick them up and put them on their bed and then clean their house. Granted, it's ONLY 54 hours a week but I've also got uni.
It's still better than my last job, I was a construction slave. Had to carry around bricks all day.
I'm sure you think your hippie pseudo job is hard but you haven't seen the real world.
there are one piece generals on days that aren't Wednesday? I never check for them.
Yes it's been like that since Sabo came back.
Have you ever tried drawing something that isn't a blatant rip off of someone else's art style?
not overreacting Robin
franky not being hueg
sanji actually being a character
>Koala was rescued from nobles by fishmen
>Later shown as a fishman karate master
>Sabo was rescued from nobles by revolutionaries (Dragon)
>Later shown using 'Dragon Claw' fighting style
You just know he's going to be a 'Dragon Claw' fighter. It's where his epithet 'Dragon' came from, similar to how Luffy is called 'Strawhat'. His real name is Monkey D. Marcus.
>chained and controlled by a loli
Would be dream come true.
Why do people hate One Piece generals? Do they spam they get in the way of the first page or something? I thought most people just use the catalog.
Usopp will have a new more powerful "Tabasco Star" after this
The "Tatababasco Star"
Have you ever seen the average general thread?
I want this
Generals are terrible. 95% of all generals do not have enough new content to warrant said general.
yeah, that's pretty bad
I do that shit for FUN. I do Wanpiss because it's fun and because I can entertain people with it. I have real ideas I'm trying to refine so I can start a series, and in the meantime I've been working on oneshot-style ideas.
And an artist that works the same amount of time to try and make a living doesn't deserve to even if they've put the time in their own unis and such to learn how? People spending years towards advancing their craft just so they can reach people and entertain them, making escapism, and they're somehow less valuable than what others do? You're on an anime and manga board and you're decrying what they do as easy? I'd think you'd value escapism more than the average person, but damn, are you for real?
Yes, they aren't that bad, only when genderbenders or tierfags ruin them.
What if Sabo knows fishman karate by proxy of Kaola? Aww shit , imagine if he combine FK with CoC. Damn, he could freak out the fighting fish so hard that they make a bunch of splashes and waves that go unto the ring, then he uses all the water to create a jet stream of water as an attack. Bye Bye devil fruit users.
this so called illness that he has is actually Tonsillitis which, if it's still bothering him he should get a Tonsillectomy, but it's his call, not mine.
are you kidding?
we have OP threads every single day, even with the break next week we will have generals.
they are fucking cancerous because they are full of reatrded theories and shitposting.
Why doesn't Usopp just fire the tobasco into Sugar's mouth? I thought he was a fucking sharpshooter.
>One Piece on break next week
ODAAAA, ADOPT A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE ALREADY
Because Dragon. Wind. Anon said caught wind, this is an expression that does not literally mean to have air blasted at your face with force. Anon brought attention to this and emphasized it, while also implying Dragon was about to wreck shit. Welcome to having to have a simple joke over analyzed and explained to you because you are to hip to have a laugh.
If Diamante gets wet, do all his clothes turn back into hard, immoveable steel?
Let OP threads die this week and next week
Leo will fail to sneak it in and Usopp will have to do just that... firing a Tatababasco Star into Sugar's mouth and proving to the Tontattas that he's a true hero
>going through all this trouble for a simple joke
you need validation from anonymous people this much?
You might want to read this
No, it's not funny at all, it's retarded witty humour from reddit.
That, in and of itself, was the joke all along.
God dammit OP general.
Leo's going to fuck it up, and then Usopp is going to say "oh yeah don't worry I've got like twenty more of those things with me, I developed them on my own years ago"
Godfuck, people are mad at me. Also
i wish i had a gf.
But no one cares about Bleach anymore, even the anime got cancelled, it was pulling in under 1% of total viewers by the end
Why are shitruto threads get spammed even if the fags actually talk about the manga and OP generals with 90% memespouting/retarded theories/shitposting/"trolling" stays unharmed?
lol wat if sum1 had da weed weed fruit ahahhaha
dayumn man dey be blazing it up all day erry day nah mean
>nami will never be cute again
>mr prince will never return
just end this manga already
If you don't like one piece generals just hide them
>Zombie Oars smashing Generals.gif
with this logic rec threads are also totally ok, because you can just hide them
This arc continues to be shit. Will Oda ever not jump around like a babbling idiot. This arc is being told like a 7 year old who can't stay still. There is no flow or rhythm to this arc at all.
Rec threads are against the rules. Threads about manga are not.
what about big mom ship? what about cp0?
I'm just offering a solution as to what you should do if you don't like them. I'm not going to explain why there is nothing wrong with them because people are retarded and don't care.
I was going to post "hurr this sucks Oda lost it's touch since TS", but you helped me out.
Most threads on /a/ are against the rules, mods just don't care.
I don't even remember who sabo is.
Luffy's other brother from another mother.
>mangapanda translates Trebol as Trevor
you know the real name
cp0 is upset with Dofly after he lost Moria
I think they're looking to eliminate him, so they're gonna let this all go down and then present the marines as the good guys.
Wow what a fucking mood killer
All the hype of finally seeing Burgess fight and then motherfucking dragon claw..only for Oda to go back to his fucking snails pace, show us a bunch of irrelevant shit and draw out the ending and then boom, BREAK.
Went from awesome to fucking lame that quickly. Oda needs a goddamn editor already, he doesn't understand pace at all and it's been especially bad since the TS. FI could've easily been 15 chapters shorter, PH could've been 20, and now Dressrosa could end up being 25 chapters too long because all that time wasted on the fodders in the tourney blocks, the repetitive toy bits, and muh 396th boring, helpless princess that the SHs just HAVE to save.
They just keep doing it
There is global rule 6. If it was enforced there would be no 4chan left.
translators have gigantic egos, I imagine being the translator for the first translation that is publish just intensifies that ego. Everyone comes to you for the first round, you hold all the power, whatever you decide the translation says is what is canon, and no one call tell you other wise.
you can stop baiting now
Dude a long running series can't pace itself when divided into chapters like this, so why bother trying at all? You're reading a series, not standalones.
You can stop being a fanboy pleb that loves a bunch of shit thrown together and call it a work of art. I bet you love the Star Wars Prequels right??
He's baiting. Noone is actually this retarded
>calling someone who has respect for quality story telling ass opposed to a jumbled mess retarded
Oh the irony
Yeah nah if you're going by that logic it's gonna be Violet since she was a member of the big bad's crew but didn't like the big bad.
You now realize that once the toys go back to normal all the broken toys will be piles of broken and decayed flesh.
like what Hancock did to those poor marine soldiers
I wonder how many strong people are actually among the toys. Most seem to be gladiators
I would prefer him not to be the standard OP captain/leader is the strongest. But rather that it's his charisma and knowledge that lead him to gathering the people he has for his cause. Pirates operate on (presumably) collective gain of some kind. Revo's should be all about over throwing the GW because they all believe or have seen the corruption etc. He should be strong, but not the strongest, I'd love an arc of pure wordy politics of this world. Not everything should be solved through mere force.
Sugar porn when?
when is lieutenant stalker gonna show up again? fo real
The series is worse since the TS, there really isn't an argument against this for anyone who has actually READ everything and doesn't come to these threads solely to post BASED GODA 10/10 I LUV U.
FI was one of the worst arcs ever, PH was terrible for the first 95% because muh kid shit, and now he's ruining Dressrosa with bad writing and terrible pacing.
Do you even understand how much better this could be? He has so many amazing characters all on one island and yet it's all wasted and every chapter is HEY HERES 2 PAGES OF THIS, WAIT NOW SWITCH SCENE 3 PAGES OF THIS, CHANGE TO THIS FOR 5 PAGES. Oh and that confrontation that you'd like to see? Fuck you here's fodders fighting in a tourney that has no long-term relevance to the plot and more repetitive shit about the SHs being saviors everywhere they walk. Please enjoy an entire page detailing how once Sugar goes down the toys will regain consciousness...even though this was just fucking explained to us like 3 chapters ago. Oh and this is your cliffhanger for my next break, which I take every month because I'm a huge alcoholic and smoker and can't control myself.
>Implying you can't pace it much better
He desperately needs an editor who isn't afraid to tell him that he doesn't need to draw EVERYTHING that pops into his head. "Hey Oda, these Yeti Cool Bro guys don't really serve much of a purpose and take up a huge amount of panels to just get effortlessly one shot. Maybe we should cut them?" The quality would go up so much if he actually had someone like this. Oda is a great creator, but guys like that (Tolkien comes to mind) need someone to tell them that everything they come up with isn't pure gold
setup chapters are the best, they build hype
Closest, so far.
>not enjoying a fleshed out and huge world
Good thing you brought up Tolkien, maybe you should just stop reading these stories all together.
If you want powerlevelwanking watch Naruto or Bleach
looks like she is wearing a flesh colored spandex suit or something.
The hype people were giving Burgess was ridiculous.
It's like people flat out ignored Blackbeard's comments about him (and the others) compared to ace and suddenly because he's the leader of some fleet all logic is thrown out the window?
>The series is worse since the TS
Generally every work of fiction that is serialized and goes on for any length of time with an overarching story tends to "get worse" simply because there is A LOT of stuff to juggle and a lot of chekhov's guns that need to be fired eventually making everything a bit cluttered.
Out of the woodwork come disgruntled ex-fans that want their bit characters to have more screentime and who also feel their long-term investment in the work of fiction entitles them to dictate where the story goes and what should appear and what shouldn't appear in it.
In this particular case OP needed a cooldown after the first part peak at Marineford.
A couple of arcs were needed to introduce us to the politicking of the New World and to establish how strong the crew is with some throwaway arc villains. People might be disappointed that everything is not epic all the time but either they're not seeing the rationale behind what's going on or (oddly enough) they're struggling with the typical basic hype/setup-payoff structure of shounen.
Hakuba was never given any orders
6 year old detected. MUM I WANT IT NOW. Cry more you faggot.
Let Oda take his time to flesh out stuff, those tourney characters weren't fodder because they'll be relevant once they are free. Dressrosa is not bad writing, the pacing is fine too I'd rather he build suspense by switching scenes constantly, you wouldn't want Luffy's part of the arc to finish only for Oda to take us back in time to show us what Usopp did.
The Yeti Cool Brothers were set up so Luffy and Law could meet, and so Luffy could feel safe since Law finished them with ease, showing that they have common enemies.
Hakuba will save the SHs.
>shaking the whole colosseum
Sabo is stronger, but that doesn't make Jesus weaker
New thread, Trébol themed:
>not enjoying a fleshed out and huge world
Some people want the series to read a conclusion before Oda dies of lung disease from his smoking and are okay with stupid, repetitive shit like the Yeti Cool Bros being taken out since you know, they add nothing to the world whatsoever
>If you want powerlevelwanking watch Naruto or Bleach
Oh shut the fuck up, you have 0 reading comprehension. Go back to fanboying like the mindless drone you are
Then he should have altered his storytelling. Instead, he used the same old situations he always does and it didn't work because it's a different type of scenario (as you call it, a "cooldown").
It has nothing to do with not being "epic", as it is repetitive and boring constantly seeing the same storylines of the SHs being almighty saviors and ANOTHER boring, helpless princess needing to be saved.
Amazing that you don't even know what fodder means, and their "relevance" is not at all tied to some silly tourney. There are a huge number of different ways Oda could have worked them into the situation without a boring tourney that's been done hundreds of times before. If you actually paid attention you'd realize that most of them already held grudges with Doflamingo for the way he supplies wars, none of them needed to fight in a tourney or get turned into toys to join a fight against him.
>and so Luffy could feel safe since Law finished them with ease, showing that they have common enemies
...and confirmed for not even reading the fucking manga. So Luffy could feel safe? What a complete joke. LAW SAVED HIS FUCKING LIFE AT MARINEFORD. One of the first things Luffy said was how he owes a debt to Law and you think carefree, fearless Luffy needs a reason to trust the guy that saved his life? Luffy would've blindly went along with whatever Law said no matter what, ESPECIALLY if it was something like take down the yonkous which is already a goal of his
God you're a dumb faggot
>But Zoro and Luffy can break stone
Guys, Pica incorporates stone into himself
Now what would happen if he coats his stone in Haki? If flesh becomes as hard as steel when coated in Haki, imagine how hard stone becomes.
>usopp will become pinocchio
when i read
I knew sereis will be on break.
More like you're just absolute shit for expecting manga art to always be anatomically correct and consistent.
This is hilarious what is this from? Is it just shopped?
Man good thing you didn't say something this stupid in real life. Would your parents disown you if they found out you couldn't even read children's comics properly?
Ace wrecking all of Blackbeard's crew was a fact though. Teach himself admitted it. Shiliew is clearly his top dog regardless of time skip or not, the man was fucking Magellan level with a SWORD.
>Ace was 3rd in rank in Whitebeard's Crew.
Except he was 2nd.
I think he was including Whitebeard himself
Luffy's gonna fight a flamingo right now after all.
>implying Buggy didn't wreck Zoro's shit faster than Mihawk the World's Greatest Swordsman while they both used butter knives.
>implying Buggy wasn't the first person to force a third party to save Luffy aka Dragon
Truly you cannot get any more nigger than this.
Look at this edge meister. He's so fucking sharp he could probably cut off his own dick just by staring at it.
>doesn't even realize Mashima has 6 assistants for Fairy Tail alone
Truly as uneducated as a nigger can get.
Nothing you do taxes your brain sadly. No wonder you're such an idiot.
If they don't they are complete retards.
I bet you can't walk and chew bubblegum at the same time.
>preferring Kubo's 1 chapter = 1 attack formula
Some of us actually want One Piece to finish within our life time.
People are retarded like that.
The rape face is coming.
Sabo confirmed for using the true nobleman's Dragon Claw
