Official /a/ stance on One Piece? Because I see all kinds of opinions on this one.
in b4 set fail.
Indifferent here. The people who post about it certainly aren't as annoying as the Bleach/Naruto people.
/a/ hates OP less than other shounen because the rest of the internet likes OP less than other shounen.
its pretty bad
>Official /a/ stance
Seconded because 300+ episodes is pretty daunting. I'd like to know what I'm getting into.
some hate it, some love it
personally, i think it's good, but it took a turn for the worse with thriller bark
It's pretty good.
Also from what I heard i's nice and quirky. But I haven't read it and I'm not going to read 300 + chapter to prove it.
Rob fucking Lucci.
Oh, and in MY opinion, One Piece is fuckwin.
It's Dragon Ball(not Z) with pirates.
My opinion is OP sucks ass.
Except for Enis Lobby, which is epic win but not worth 250 eps or 350 chapters to get to.
>>Official /a/ stance
>>I see all kinds of opinions on this one.
Sage for fucking retarded question. /a/ isn't some congress or hierarchy. How the hell do you expect an 'official' stance?
Japanese OP - OK
Amerikken OP - BURN, HERETIC AND MAY YOU BE CLEANSED BY THE RIGHTEOUS FLAMES OF THE EMPEROR
I can't stomach the style and the character designs.
I am really indifferent besides that.
It's better than Lucky Star.
I was really enthusiastic when One Piece came out.
Today I keep up to date with it, but it's definately not my fave.
It has its ups and downs these days (I liked CP9, but not Thriller Bark), and am excited to see the what happens in the new merman arc.
It's just getting to long in the tooth, I'd like to see it wrapped up in the next two years, but that's unlikely to happen.
I don't want to say Oda is milking the premise, since I think he's truly passionate about his work, but as I stated before it's time to move on.
One piece has some really memorable characters, and very cool action sequences.
I'd like to see it end well.
Art is fucking whacky cracked out shit, not your usual moe or gar. Its a shonen travel story basically where they go to whacky new islands and punch/slash/bite assholes there. Forget the plot because so did the author, plus it sucks beyond the travellan and the fightan. If you can stand all of that, go for it. I'll reserve whether or not I think it sucks because there's enough bullshit about that going on already.
/a/ seems to universally love Jojo and hate D.Gray Man, with relatively few exceptions.
Manga is good. Better then most shounen. If you set fail you are a newfag. Not worth the effort to talk about on daytime /a/ though.
Superior shonen. Doesn't deserve to be compared with Naruto or Bleach, and lord knows why people do it.
It's shounen, yet embraces the fact that it is not realistic (others try to and fail) and turns it into something good. The creativity is brilliant, and the emotions are used well.
Has awesome characters (Sogeking sundays, fuck yes) and great concepts.
And /a/ definitely liked it a lot once, since the rotating banner has a few One Piece ones.
One Piece is just pure goodness.
Oh shit, don't even bring up the dubs which hath no name.
I'm pretty sure we're just discussing the jap Manga/anime
>not your usual gar
Please see >>10191049
To OP, One piece is good.
I didn't really want to get into One Piece at first. I actually heard the Skypiea arc was enjoyable. I started watching with that arc. A little while into it, I decided to start from where they entered the Grand Line and continue from there.
I'm following One Piece almost religiously now. Of course, I never keep the episodes. I delete the older ones once a new ep comes out.
You'd be surprised. I can list "Official /a/" stances but you'll just disagree to prove me wrong. All in all on /a/ there are certain absolutes and thats what I think he means by "Official"
>Doesn't deserve to be compared with Naruto or Bleach, and lord knows why people do it.
fags who put it in the naruto/bleach category probably haven't bothered to read it, but I can understand not wanting to read it because of how long it is.
Holy fuck! one piece has birds with ties?!
That makes it almost worth reading
>Official /a/ stance
Official /a/ sage
How about fave Villians?
2. Rob Lucci
>>10191039 here. Shitty Amerikken dub is shitty. Even though I hardly watched/read the series, the second I compared two episodes of OP(one JP, one US), I cried inside.
That's exactly it. One Piece doesn't try to be realistic, which is why you don't get as many complaints about Oda using plot hax for his protagonists to win.
Sasuke's got his loleyes and Kenpachi's got two hands, but they get bitched about more than "lol ghosts can't make Usopp MORE negative because he's max negative!"
Basically, it's like Dragonball; you accept that it makes very little sense and enjoy it.
Also, OP, it's great. I'd say skim the first 100 chapters or so, but Oda has a tendency to bring back the most random minor characters and make them major (Garp.)
American OP's OP is the best thing about OP.
I haven't picked One Piece up for a while, but what I've seen of it is a very fun and innocent adventure very reminiscent of the old Dragon Ball's spirit. It's lovely.
1. Hawkeye Mihawk
Crocodile, Lucci, then Enel.
I have a feeling Doflamingo is fuckwin, and Kuma gets honorable mention for being the Terminator with a silly hat.
Also, Sanji's fire kick doesn't set him on fire because HIS HEART BURNS EVEN HOTTER.
And Franky is powered by Cola because COLA IS GOOD.
Oh Oda, you so silly.
Yes, as it showcases the shittiness of their 'Amerikken remix'.
Q: How does Zoro speak when he's holding a sword in his mouth.
A: HE SPEAKS... FROM HIS HEART.
Fuck yeah cola.
Read all of those but I can't seem to remember them from the top of my head. Post the link for me
Manga > Anime. It's made of manly tears and /a/ used to have Sogeking Sunday before eternal newfag summer.
I miss those days.
I lost my Soge king folder ;_; I had a few fuckwin images too.
Set sail for lulz.
Butthurt Bleachfag or Narutard
one piece and gto are the only manga to make me cry, so it definitely has a place in my heart, despite all the haters in /a.
The part about Merry?
Not just Merry, Chopper's backstory is universally recognised as tearjerker.
Yah! And Chopper's backstory.
Animu/mango looks okay, but too long for my personal tastes.
Basically, it's like Dragonball; you accept that it makes very little sense and enjoy it.
Except it's not like Dragonball.
Sure it's a shonen, sure the hero eat over 9000 bowls of rice and has an IQ below 7, but DB was less humorous.
I know this will make rage a lot of GL fans, but One Piece has the same logic. FULL SPEED FORWARD (it's a trip, there's always something more impossible about the next island, powers always go off the previous known scales). And lot of people here are so simple minded about One Piece that they just miss the constant humor and parodic tone that you can see in it.
I'll admit that the scene where Chopper gives that mushroom to Dr Hiruluk in the anime made me cry.
>>I know this will make rage a lot of GL fans, but One Piece has the same logic.
That arc was fucking depresing.

I don't think it's too long. If it takes 600 chapter to tell a great story, then so what? After reading all the chapters, I still find it refreshing. Oda definitely has an ending in his mind, and you can see how everything relates to everything, unlike Inuyasha, where the author seems to make things up chapter by chapter.
All told, Oda has a well thought out story to tell with a definite ending somewhere in the future. Mermaid island is the midpoint of the story.
Also, who does /a/ think is the new arc villain? You know, that guy saying how Luffy ruined his life, with the big iron mask?
Touching is not the same as depressing.
Probably not an arc villain, since I think Luffy starts fighting him this chapter.
I look up and what's on the 4chan banner but the Straw Hat Pirates.
1/3 before Grand Line, 1/3 during, 1/3 after. It's just that Grand Line was drawn forever.
Oda writes unbelievably shitty fight scenes but manages to get some fine though crazy humour in the story. the whole point of One Piece is to get a whole, 20 person ship crew each actually having a personality. Oda actually does quite well considering the large cast of characters.
He's stopping at 10 faggot.
It think that it's the mermaid boss with the Hawaiian shirt that Luffy fought with in early arcs. He had his nose broken which is why I'm guessing he's hiding his face.
Look at the threads. The bitchier they are the better it is.
His name is Arlong, and no faggot, not him.
I forgot so to say that they also mentioned his octopus henchman in the beginning of the chapter.
Uh... maybe Don Krieg?
the doctor from Thriller Park
It's DON KRIEG
I don't know much about OP, but I do know that the fan art is highly fappable.
Very well then... let it be Don Krieg.
I'm a fan. Sure OP has just about every shonen cliche in the book, but it has so much fun with itself that I don't even care. Although the drawn-out battles are a chore to read week-to-week. Skypeia was the low point of the series for me, but it recovered with Water 7/Enias Lobby.
1. Whose fuckingdismembered arm is serving Nami her drink?
2. Luffy ass-raping a panda. CAN'T UNSEE
From ch 455 SBS
D: Wait a second!! Oda-sensei!! You know that scene in Volume 45, where Robin squeezes Franky in a very important place? CAN SHE FEEL WHAT SHE'S SQUEEZING? You simply MUST tell me!!
O: Yes, she can. All the arms and legs she sprouts are part of her body. She feels the things she touches, and when she's hurt, that damage is done to her own body. So you see... She really DID grab his balls!! Girls, NEVER DO THIS. They're very tender!!
yea, the skypie arc almost make me stop reading op, but then, all of the sudden it come the norland flashback, and man, that history fire up the flame for reading op again, it kicked so much ass!!
Luffy didn't ruin Kreig's life since it was already ruined when he failed to enter the grand line..so after all those fillers with Morgan and his son and stuff its bound to be him.
That's what I thought, but then I looked at the picture and he's got two hands.
It won't be long 'til we see some Mermen connected to Arlong.
Morgan has one hand retard.
Robin's devil fruit faggot.
mmm is it me or those boots look kind of familiar.
Handjob Handjob Fruit
So that takes out Morgan and the Cat guy from Usopps village
It's Don Krieg
you know she can do it with every part of her body right?
Arlong has a nose which can't fit so we have Don Kreig who hadnt got his life ruined and ...no one?Maybe its Buggy...or some marine guy
So many doujin ideas wasted since she only makes hands..
Why does this come up everytime that picture is posted?
Because that's what happens when they post that pic.
imagine Robin making a whole bunch of vaginas all over her body. That would be something.
I like how all discussions devolve into porn.
Buggy doesn't need a mask since that would ruin his image as a Pirate clown.
She can make any body part (she has used eyes, ears, and once feet,) but it's mainly the hands she uses.
But yeah, the doujins hardly ever use her powers creatively. Why turn Robin into a futa, when you can have her grow a hand "down there," thus being able to finger someone, as well as rape them, at the same time?
It's that guy from Navy Game something
be more specific
"She has eight vaginas".
wait...you mean the Davy Back Fight?
Can't be him, he got demoted and is working with Django
she probably could create a whole clone.
2 legs and on the legs a body and on the body 2 arms and so on.
Buggy and Alvida need to come back. They almost killed Luffy.
sometimes /a/ likes one piece
sometimes /a/ hates one piece
She'd need a stick to pop things out of it since she cant grow legs from feet to hips, she grows legs from hips to feet
the opinions of /a/ on any anime are inversely proportional to the hype of the given show everywhere else. It has no correlation to the quality of the product, save when the product is hyped due to said quality (not to be confused with the QUALITY coefficient derived from freezeframes of expressive action shots).
He's Dead dude. Donflamingo had Sarquiss Kill the bastard for losing.
God I hope it isn't him, he's the worst villian in the entire series
yes, or this could be the magneto guy from the anime.
(Read: Got OWNED.)
The 'official' stance of /a/ is that it's well-liked, and was extremely well-liked, and discussed, before the Newfag Summer of 2007 came (and never, ever left). That isn't to say there weren't some soured opinions though, but that's mostly because some One Piece fans can be fucking obnoxious. Overall, though, One Piece is still well-liked.. it's just that if you want a discussion about it, you go to nightshift /a/, when all the butthurt newfags and Naruto/Bleach fags are asleep.
enel needs to come back.
set fail to Fairy Vearth
Someone post Shioji's big titted hot mom
Not many, especially compared to bleach/naruto
Can't fucking find any, but do want. 2nd season with plot fucking where, Nabeshin?
So Are we decided? Duval is definitely Don Krieg from what I can gather.
Morgan = One arm.
Kuro = ??? (No Grudge?)
Don Krieg = Ruined Reputation/armour? (might be enough motive.)
Arlong = Busted Nose (Last I can remember he's in jail.)
Wapol = LOL NO.
Crocodile = In Jail.
Enel = LOL MOON.
Foxy = LOL NO.
aaand the Rest are too soon/self explanatory.
crocodile escaped from jail.
It's approved by Akira Toriyama, godfather of modern Shonen. What more do you expect?
but modern shounen sucks
You mean newfag summer 06.
Actually he didn't.
He and Mr.1 decided to stay there.
Blame Toriyama then.
<- In b4 Dragon Ball
why did crocodile stay? I missed that.
Anyone have the pictures of these characters?
This series has been going on for so long, I can't really remember faces from just names alones.
Especially since there has been various groups along the years that have translated this series differently. (Ruffy anyone?)
True, a lot of 80-90's shounen/some seinen (Berserk, Riki-Oh) were inspired by Tetsuo Hara. Back when shounen was good.
and time to take your add pills
What about that Navy guy from when they first met Sanji? Iron fist or something. Didn't the strawhats indirectly fuck him over twice?
Oh and One Piece is closer to being 2/5ths done. not 2/3rds. Considering the Fact that we just reached the physical halfway point in the Grand line, Have another half to cross, Have the ENTIRE Final bits where all the ridiculous amounts of loose ends are wrapped up (Deftly, because Oda knows what he's doing) As WELL as the over all "True History" Plot With Pluton, and Dragon, yeaah. This story Is no where near finished. And I for one Cannot wait.
Set Sail for EPIC.
Kuro is built much smaller, and doesn't give a shit what Luffy does. Enel has the rage at Luffy, but he knows he would just get his ass handed to him again, so he's gonna stay on his flying ship of faggotry until Oda shows him getting beat the fuck down by some high ranking pirate/government official. The way Oda emphasized Enel's assurance that "he could kill anyone in the world but Luffy" just screams for him to be getting an ass kicking later. Foxy is a faggot, and hopefully dead. Wapol can shapeshift, if you had forgotten, so it's possible it's him...but not likely. Probably Krieg, maybe Arlong or Morgan.
Don Krieg faggot.
Read the miniarcs, he is on the moon, literally, helping some Oda style beavers/hamsters.
He's not gonna stay there forever, it's the fucking moon.
That was his dream fag.
It's Arlong. Oda told me.
It's a pretty faggy dream, though.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who laughed at "FAIRY VEARTH."
Yeah. The Journey from Thriller bark to fishman island took just a couple of pages. With old Oda pacing, it would have taken another arc. He's definitely speeding up the pace.
yeah but he also said he'd be back (though it sounded more like destroy skypiea than to get the strawhats)
Still, and he accomplished it.
Logic Says it's Don Krieg.
Mermaid Island says it's Arlong.
I say; Fuck it, either way it's awesome.
Note: Duval's helmet looks AWESOME.
And most Anonymous dreams for a companion, or that their 2D waifus were real. I don't think we can judge Enel.
for people that didn't see the spoiler texts, arlong is in prison still, says hatchi
duval is unlikely to be arlong
because he's god
There was barely anything from Water 7 to Thriller too.
Pretty much. The only reason Luffy beat him is because of SUPER EFFECTIVE! Bad matchup.
Anon being one person with different opinions?
You WANT to be different now?
I liked that though. The fact that Luffy didn't win because he was better then Enel, or more powerful. It was simply that he was his natural enemy.
If Iron face man was Krieg, I'd shit brix.
Krieg was fucking win. Since his VA was Gendo Ikari's.
enel vs other logia type?
One Piece villains are all going to end into the Straw Hat Crew.
I still don't understand how Logia's can fight each other. (Excluding blackbeard for Anti-Logia hax) It wouldn't make sense if they both had anti-physical damaging attributes. Ie: Ace VS Enel. Just a hell of a lot of Collateral damage.
I bet you're right.
OH WOW. I forgot how fuckin' HILARIOUS Gedatsu is.
Lol. Forgets to breath. HA.
depends, op movie 4 guy was water fruit, he'd totally own crocodile and ace, yet enel will ohko him, but he can't do shit against crocodile
oda plays too much pokemon
Enel also took a fucking reject straight on his chest. Even if he managed to survive that (barely with his powers) he took some serious damage and still managed to fight with Luffy.
Elemental combat, with some elements being able to negate others. Fire vs Smoke is a stalemate. Fire vs Ice would depend on each user's skill level. Ice vs Sand would result in Ice winning most likely. It goes on like that.
enel vs ace is a hard one.
ao kiji probably would lose to both of them due to heat, the ice would melt.
crocodil would lose to ace too because he would turn to glass.
smoke can't do shit so don't bother with it.
LOL GLASS CROCODILE. WIN.
Norland is the best god damn part of fucking One Piece. I was fucking passionate about reading and watching that shit. The whole premise made me sad, angry and apathetic to the whole situation.
equip sea stones. like smoker did in his sword thing
>crocodil would lose to ace too because he would turn to glass
i see what you did
Smartest. Move. In all of One Piece.
enel can ressurect himself with elecroshocks like a Defibrillator
enel can ressurect himself with electroshocks like a Defibrillator
I hope Duval isn't that prick Spandam with an even bigger mask.
Most characters in One Piece, while acting like complete idiots outside of battle (although also goofing around in-battle at times), actually have the sense of how to fight well, and when, like Usopp with him adding Dials to his pachinko and Nami's Clima-Tact. Or when Sanji uses the situation on the Sea Train to his advantage and uses kitchen knives.
All Logia can do that, think Pokemon weather/type advantage.
Does that also heal the wounds he got?
Can't remember anymore.
While I'm not saying I didn't think this; It's still a bit soon, doncha think?
it's shonen with heart that doesn't take itself seriously. i love the fucked up art and character designs. it's extremely formulaic but that's ok. it's dragonball while most other shonen are dbz.
haven't even watched the anime, i watched the first episode and thought it was shit but maybe that's because it's so old.
Sanji is the 2nd smartest in the group for a reason.
Nah. Physical injury is still physical injury when you get slammed and can't negate it. The main reason for Enel's heart-shock tactic is because the Impact Dial basically slammed his body so hard it stopped his heart in an instant - it wasn't a death caused by amassed injury, just a sharp impact.
Nami and Robin.
Ugh. Am I the only one who likes Sanji the least from all the Strawhats?
electricity makes sense but they can massage their hearts with ice, fire and smoke?
So now Luffy has beaten 3 Logia users officially, and one more in the movies. Other than Moria which was SHOOT AT IT UNTIL IT DIES, the others were pretty much invulnerable but had weakness that could be abused.
Need moar Logia hax, COME ON BLACKBEARD.
needs a (sea)water type logia
Sanji is loev.
Thriller Bark had some ridiculously hax Devil Fruits, when you think about it.
Not counting Brook's Get out of Jail Free card fruit, Moria had that ridiculous shadow fruit and Perona had that depressing ghost fruit that would have finished off the entire crew if not for Usopp.
Also, invisibility, but that's not really ridiculous.
But What other Logia Types can there be? We've covered most of the elements already.
Also Fatass Filler Heat fruit Logia. (LAME. WHY THE HELL DID THEY WASTE HEAT ON FILLER?!)
Wouldn't that just leave the user paralysed for the rest of their life?
don't forget the candy logia
Oh fuck, the masked guy in the spoiler is Higuma, from chapter one
Man, Can you imagine FINALLY getting your hands on a DF and going "FUCK YEAH!" only to find out that you got a ZOAN afterwards?
And now you're Half fuckin' Hippo, have gained 500 pounds and can't move worth shit.
Worst. DF Type. EVER.
An official water, maybe wind, light, since there's darkness.
and the liquid logia girl.
i wonder if she could turn into sperm
Sort of like Kaku.
Who wants to be a fucking giraffe, anyway?
Just make the most out of it. Like Kaku did with his giraffe fruit. Besides, if you master it, whose to say you can't just become a huge, bulky humanoid? Hippos aren't excessively 'fat', if you've ever seen one move.
Zoan is awesome if you're a physical fighter, in fact, a bird type Zoan would be awesome for me.
You're right, there aren't many left...
depends on which kind of hippo.
grape hippo would be fuck win
FUCK YEAH HIPPO ZOAN SUMO WRESTLER.
The worst would actually be eating a sloth fruit.
worst would be a fish fruit
you can't do shit with it
The thing about one piece is the best characters are barely ever seen.
We never see much of the real badasses like Dragon, Garp or Smoker.
I know, I know. Hippos are actually pretty badass. I just took an example out of nowhere to be just sayin'.
We already have a Wind type don't we? They barely mention it, but that's the only way I see Dragon could've saved Luffy back in Logue Town.
Didn't he get Ate?
Not if it's a flying fish!
wood element lulz
Fish fish fruit - Shark
FUCK YEAH NOW I CAN BE ARLONG.
Splash attack !
I'm sure there would be some exception to the swimming rule, about how their body can withstand it. Sort of like Brook's body can run on water from being so light.
I dunno... Slug Fruit would be pretty bad.
Are you kidding? Longass reach, climbing skill and three fucking HUGE claws on each hand?
Seeing how Steel/Metal wasn't a Logia, I doubt Wood would be.
Wood isn't an element, it's earth + light.
Hell yes, now you can DIE if you stop moving! Shark merman =/= Shark human.
I'm pretty sure that Oda confirmed that on SBS.
A plant Growing Logia would be pretty badass.
bitches don't know bout wood element
Given the nature of how a Devil Fruit would work; it would simply be a Paramecia type. Rubber can be considered an 'element' also, you know.
could gaara control crocodile?
>how a Devil Fruit would work
How exactly would it work?
lava fruit would fucking destroy everything
And to makes things even more ridiculous, the GUN is the one that ATE THE FRUIT.
Crocodile is a S& Hero
Fuck, I remember that. Laughed my ass off at the raw fucking absurdity.
Can't wait for this Vegapunk asshole to show up so that we can finally get some Pseudo scientific explanation for all this shit. (Also some Franky SUPAH UPGRADAN.)
wood could regrow and/or attach if cut like logia.
Only special fruits can be given to an object.
Special like Dog.
like the sword that ate the elephant fruit
The sword was the one that ate the elephant fruit too. I wish Zoro stole it though.
wood could regrow and/or reattach like the other logia types can reattach when cut in half.
Sounds like a Prussian fairy tale.
Vree I'm an elephant!
You could make people suck your dick
Oda mentioned that inanimate object can consume fruits that would give make them alive, ie, animal types.
I can only wonder at how many Devil Fruit's that must have gone to waste on the knife their erstwhile owner decided to use on it.
would be cool if zoro had a sword like funkfried
Oda's a fucking genious.
If you fed a sword the Human Fruit that Chopper ate, would you get Das Boness?
Yeah, it only applies to animal types, really. No 'elemental sword' for you guys, rofl. I think it also ties in with Zoro's teachings, mind you. If you remember, back when he fought Mr. 1 in Alabasta.. he realized that all objects have a 'breath', making them living entities. That essentially ties in with how they can 'consume' fruit.
wonder if that would work with alvidas fruit too.
give it to an object and receive beautiful waifu
And what if you fed a rubber with the human fruit ?
And what if you fed a rubber with the gum gum fruit ?
eat it yourself and receive harem
It gives you that.
I loved how that bazooka ate a dog's fruit.
Also, I seriously hope One Piece is not the object Luffy has been protecting this whole time. You can guess what it is.
It's the fucking straw hat, dude. You know it.
Just posting to say that is great that we can have a nice thread about a shonen. It gives me hope.
I really hope not. Too fucking predictable.
OP here. Let's archive, this is good stuff.
And what if you fed a piece of shit with the human fruit?
look in it and you'll see... hurr
what whould happen if you fed sperm with a devil fruit and used it to make someone pregnant?
if you fed sperm with human fruit and it would fuck a girl in human form and impregnant her with his own sperm, would the child look like the guy who's sperm was used or would it look like the sperm because it was the sperm's sperm?
