Gear Four thread
who /hype/ for tonight?
also Sanjifag shitposters and epic b8rs and meme'ers please go away
>eats sweets and drinks cocoa all the time
I want to eat out her candy flavoured pink butthole and her sweet nectar leaking pussy
I actually think that he's going to end up with the fiancée in the long run (as in, in an epilogue).
If his fiancée doesn't turn out to be a hambeast or something like that, that is. Or maybe even then, poor Sanji has bad luck.
I always thought it'd be Viola for an EoS partner. They looked great together, she's loyalty, she actually likes the dude to a degree, his crew helped her entire country, her family is great, everything is perfect.
>sanji rescue arc
Nah, more like Sanji "betrayal" arc. He'll agree to the wedding and tell the strawhats he quit the crew for drama and then later find out it is all part of some scheme of his
Eh, they can rekindle it. I just like their interactions. She knows he's a hopeless idiot but she finds that adorable and it makes me smile. I do think Sanji will end up being married and will still be flirty and shit to girls but gets kicked by his wife
>yfw Zoro just says "fuck it, let's leave the dumbass here"
I don't care about gear4, but I sure am hyped by the prospect of seeing my husbando fighting in his full gorgeously animated glory.
>Fisherman Island was inferior Arlong

Zou is obviously an inferior Skypiea, anon. I mean, it's so obvious.
Thanks anon. I might start watching it again, how is the animation and fight scenes. I dropped Naruto at the start of Shippuden and tried watching the scenes from the final battle but the budget was too low and too much talking
Hmmm well we will have to see after this arc and how it goes. If it goes how I think it will:
>he goes there to marry her, sees she's a QT and does his little I love girls things he do for the beautiful ones.
>shes starts crying saying how she's not ready to be married yet but has no choice
> sanji becomes series and tells her stop crying, promises that he will do everything he can to stop the marriage.
>slowly through the ARC she keeps noticed on how great sanji is despite his very little flaw (he will probably show this again when nami and robin comes with the crew to save him)
> by the end she may say something about how it would put be so bad to marry him. So the marriage can just be put on hold. Etc
Well not exactly like that but I picture it close to that. With that done it will keep big mom and the strawhats from having to fight and some more little perks. But as you said sanji will still flirt
And if none of this happens or even show signs she may like him then back to viola it is.
same problem with OP. fight scenes are few and far between. lots of dialogue and shitty animation. Toei seems to get it right when it counts but since the timeskip, the animation loses quality every arc.
No, the Elephant's leg was. Ryuunosuke was Merry 2.0. The minks are obviously Angels. Enel was Jack.
Well, you can, she'd be staring at you. It's just that I think a mono eye staring at you is creepy as shit. If she kept it closed permanently, it'd be fine.
DING DING DING
IN THIS CORNER WE HAVE VIOLA, FORMER PIRATE AND PRINCESS OF DRESSROSA
IN THIS CORNER WE HAVE PUDDING, 35TH DAUGHTER OF THE CHARLOTTE FAMILY, UNDER YONKO BIG MOM
WHO WILL WIN IN THIS ORDEAL OF LOVE?
>Doffy, introduced in June 2002, turns out to have had Royalties™ all alng
>Sanji, introduced in fucking June 1998 turns out to have had Royalties™ as well
>Big Mom is going to have Sanji, who has Royalties™, with her daughter, so is safe to assume she has Royalties™ as well
Who's next? Who will Oda give them Royalts next? Franky?
So.... who is the guy in charge of this episode? Any links to more of his episodes? Please tell me is the guy that made the Lao G fight.
>two people turning out to be royalty , now oda must be planning to use that on everyone
Calm down anon it's not that serious. It's only two people and plus we don't even fully know the extent of sanji family situation. Plus of course big mom is royalty that what it means to be a emperor of the new world.
Oh, yeah, that's plausible. I kept thinking that wedding invitation meant they were going to go with the "spoiled monstrous noble tyrant" with her as a villain like they did with Wapol. But worse. Both of them have even been shown to be cannibals, Big Mom more disturbingly so, and they're also basically creepy manchildren.
Seing how horrible the Word Nobles were in Shabaody definitely reminded me of Wapol FUCKING MURDERING EVERY DOCTOR IN HIS COUNTRY JUST BECAUSE, and the World Government even gave him a fucking kingdom again (So maybe we'll see him again?). So maybe they go that route with her as well if the Charlotte family is already a noble one? She does not look like a nice person at all so far to say the least.
Hah, I was mostly joking with that Franky thing. Just wondering what route is Oda going to go with nobility after this? So far they're pretty much evil incarnate, and the main thing wrong with the OP universe. Will Sanji's family be like this as well?
Let's not forget that she chose usopp at the end
Ok and yeah I agree. Every Noble is usually evil, I hope at least sanji family is good but knowing oda. Sanji mom was probably a poor slave or something that got pregnant by a rich a noble and somehow also died and left him with his shitty dad and half brothers
Absolutely nothing. The "my ultimate technique will shorten my lifespan!" trope is such a copout, it is used when an ability is supposed to have some sort of repercussion that does not interfere with the plot. Luffy is not just going to NOT find the One Piece because he dies five minutes before reaching Raftel. He will live exactly as long as the story needs him to live. The arbitrary lifespan he loses in the end will not matter.
I think the worst example of this is in Full Metal Alchemist where Edward in one scene uses himself as a stone to heal a lethal wound which is supposed to shorten his lifespan, but it is never brought up again.

Like in 90% of the cases when someone talks shit about [character]fags, the [character]fags are not that obnoxious, but rather the people who keep talking shit about other people for mentioning their favourite character a bit too much for their taste.
It's the same group of people that spams "[character]fag BTFO" in every other thread. It's shitposting. We should all learn to ignore it.
When Oda shows off a villain's powers to build them up as a threat, powerlevelfags start stroking their dicks immediately because holy shit this is the end-all, Luffy's going to lose, he can't beat this awesome enemy yet.
But then when Luffy does beat them it robs them of their perfect climax because it shatters their autistic imaginary power tiers and leaves them blue balled so they go into full denial claiming the villain wasn't really beaten or that it was an unfair fight or blame it on Oda's writing skills.
Enel, Doffy, and there's many more to come in the future now that everyone in the New World is strong as shit.
Only caught the last minute of a livestream, but this page was well done. Preview for next episode looks pretty bad though.
You're doing a poor job of ignoring it, then.
Well, I have, on this very board, too.
And not in here, but in other places where powerlevel shitters proliferate people complain about Enel not really losing because it wasn't a fair fight on equal ground and that Doffy losing was bad writing because he should have become a major villain for the rest of OP because he was way too powerful to be defeated so early.
Shit opinions exist. Though I guess people do exaggerate on how widespread they truly are, and they do it a lot on these threads.
>shit post on /a/
>fags mention Me weeks later
Everyone remember to do your best to appreciate Penguin today!
There is no reason why the bride would be ugly, not only would it be a predictable cliche, but now that the hostages are safe there is NO reason why sanji would go through with the marriage unless he wants to. The only other reasons are so much more contrived than simply having a beautiful bride
5 minute warning!
>http://www1 watchopnow com/
it's just to show how much stronger doffy is than luffy, that he's able to fight after getting his organs scrambled while keeping up a cage than an entire country including an admiral and zoro can't push back or cut and still beat luffy
meanwhile luffy has to cheat and use steroids
There was some QUALITY but it actually made the episode better.
E P I C B T F O
OH MAN DOFFYFAGS ON SUICIDE WATCH
HERE THEY COME CLICKETY CLACK DOWN THE TRACK ITS THE DOFFYFAGS BTFO EXPRESS
Okay finished. Is Python really supposed to be that powerful? In the manga Oda didn't make it stretch that far where as here it's all over the fucking place. Not complaining though since it goes along with the ridiculousness of Gear 4th.
The anime adds the following scenes:
Chinjao commenting on how Sai is acting like a leader.
Leo reattaching Law's arm and Mansherry healing it are shown onscreen.
A flashback to Luffy's struggle to beat the creatures on Rusukaina, which was only alluded to in the manga.
Bartolomeo reacting to Gear Fourth.
When Doflamingo is sent flying into the city, two Marines confront him, but his anger causes them to drop in fear.
Luffy manages to stay in the same place at one point in the air, despite Gear Fourth keeping him in constant motion.
Luffy and Doflamingo exchange more blows in the anime than the manga.
Doflamingo uses Overheat twice. The first one misses, and the second one is destroyed by Luffy.
Luffy's second Gomu Gomu no Culverin takes longer to hit Doflamingo and takes more turns.
you can clearly see how he uses Kong gun without his sandals
this triggers me
Besides Python, how? Oda knows how ridiculous it is because the bounce gags are in the manga too (which are only enhanced here with the sound effects) and Doffy openly makes fun of how it looks.
I mean, it's got a 1000 in there, that's kinda like 10,000. And you have your history. And uh, you know, minks and angels.
So obvious guys.
The toei version is better
time to make a new image of this
I haven't seen an actual episode in quite some time. Man, that was bad, all that padding and those still-shots.
But I liked those light bounces right after the transformation. They were so rhythmic and calming. Luffy almost seemed like a Buddha.
I like how the python was actually bouncing off the air, which wasn't so clear in the manga. So is that a confirmation that Luffy has atleast begun to awaken his fruit? It seemed like he turned the air around his fist into rubber.
A lot of the padding with the citizens though was in the chapter. The only thing that I would consider padding that isn't exactly good (padding a fight with more fighting isn't a bad thing to add I would think) is all the characters reacting to gear 4th which you can take it or leave it really.
>Wapol owning a weapon factory
he went full yoyoi in the transformation, unexpected
Nope. I don't usually watch the one piece anime, I just read the manga and discuss it here. But I checked this week's episode out because of gear fourth, and it was fucking shite, even if it is toei
it's pretty obvious candyland with big mom is gonna be a foil to thriller bark.
and instead of sanji trying to stop the wedding with nami, nami will likely have to keep some girl's ass to stop him from getting married.
ITS LIKE POETRY, IT RHYMES.
The sound effects
The character designs
The Q U A L I T Y
The goddamn filler
I compared it to the manga as I was watching it, and it literally took three minutes to cover the first page of the chapter, which was just people running away from the birdcage
2040s when we're finally done and can process all this shit.
Filler arcs removed, cover stories all get one episode due to importance in the story.
New World is WAY shorter, none of this 'episode a chapter' bullcrap.
I don't like them, other than the voices of the actual straw hats themselves
And I don't like how they were saying things like "gear fourth" and other names of attacks and things
Pretty bad adaptation desu
>doesn't even activate gear fourth until halfway into the episode
>sound effects are pretty bad
Man, what the fuck? Remember Gear Second? That whole scene with him beating the shit out of Blueno is one of my favorite in all of anime. This is what we get for the much-hyped Gear Fourth episode?
It's kind of impressive how poorly done the anime is these days.
Everything just felt so weak and lacked any sense of force or impact.
In the manga, I got the sense that Luffy was primarily just using the immense pressure in his body to launch attacks. Him actually throwing the punch in the anime during the Kong Gun made it looked weak; I imagined it basically just fucking exploding like an actual cannon and launching Doffy like he'd been hit by a huge firearm.
I did like the music they used for the transformation and Luffy's Kong Gun, though. Why has the quality dropped SO drastically, though? Isn't One Piece a money-printing endeavor at this point? Do they just figure it's impossible to lose viewership or something?
>Why has the quality dropped SO drastically
It was a really slow process, which started at the end of Skypiea.
What's with the people complaining, don't you watch the anime usually? This is a thousand times better than usual.
>Do they just figure it's impossible to lose viewership or something?
Yes, One Piece has higher ratings than pretty much every other TV anime in Japan, so they know people will watch even if it's shit
>Do they just figure it's impossible to lose viewership or something?
Yep you answered your own question. It's too popular for them to care and it will always rake in the cash.
Time to write a petition, but yeah i was expecting the same thing.
Instead it seemed kinda plastic
Even this scene seemed more like what g4 should of been.
I can't believe there are people who unironically like this design.
>Yes, One Piece has higher ratings than pretty much every other TV anime in Japan
Except for Doraemon and Sazae-san and those sure as fuck ain't known or watched for their good animation.
>tfw the korean slaves that did this episode weren't allowed to get as drunk or snort pills like usual but they still messed it up
>tfw feel bad for the slaves
>Toei will still use it as an excuse to not give them their monthly chicken wing bonus
I was expecting this to be an overwhelming display of power, with Luffy going into unobservable speed, and Doffy spiting his inner organs like Croc at the end of Alabasta. But what the fuck was that? G2 always gave me much more of an impresion of strenght; I mean, just look at it's debut:
>Doffy spiting his inner organs like Croc
Can't have that simply because Doffy still has a lot of fight left in him, he wasn't disposable like Blueno or on his last legs like Croc.
Gear Fourth is the successor to Gear Second. Why the fuck wouldn't you expect it to act like an upgraded version of it? Are you trying it fit in too hard or something?
The manga itself gave an entirely different impression of G4 anyway.
g4 is amazingly designed but the anime depicts it as a mucle power up and not much else
anyway i liked that moment when its presented in full form and luffy bounds with his day skipping legs i think that captures the spirit of g4 but the rest yeah hardly
I dan't want the exact same execution, but Luffy just throwing a punch is not Kong Gun and you know it, also, you know the representation of speed and strenght of G4 in todays chapter was very underwhelming.
? If something, I actually digged Luffy's way of presenting the gear. The bouncing-by-townspeople scene could have been great with a bit more of a reaction instead of just the drops intheir heads.
Yeah, I went overboard there, but I was expecting a bit more of that. Also, Doffy might be the character that Toei draws with QUALITY more frecuently. Even todays episode had tons of that, and I'm not even that skilled in spoting it.
>yfw Gear Fifth is Luffy stretching his butthole out and putting people in his butthole and then squeezing down and then they bounce around inside his butt and makes them get sucked up through his intestines and tummy and then coughs them out like a reverse poop
Why are you so devastated that people don't like the episode? The quality is very clearly bad. This isn't something you can deny, this isn't an opinion, it's something every single viewer can very easily see. It's bad. Period
I don't understand why you people take it this personally, as if an attack against the episode was somehow an attack against you
I don't like Gear Fourth, it didn't have an impact on me.
No i don't read Naruto nor Bleach.
No i don't want an edgy design.
One Piece is almost the only shounen i follow because of how goofy it is. I love how silly bad guys looks and how weird can some attacks be.
Franky is my favorite SH. I even like her post TS design.
I read OP since Water 7.
Some people can dislike G4 without being edgy marine ford babbies. Deal with it already, no one is telling you to stop liking G4, some just happens to think it's boring. That's it.
It's shit in the anime because of the red colour scheme and retarded Toei proportions. The design itself is great and unique. If you want some edgelord magical aura power up go watch Dragon Ball or some other crap.
>If you want some edgelord magical aura power up go watch Dragon Ball or some other crap.
Almost every post here is about how the episode (anime) sucked. Also the red coloring I could forgive, but aside from the transformation, the bouncing (I like the sfx), and culverin flying around (not it's actual impact), Toei fucked it up, hard.
The bouncing sound effect could have been better. Kong Gun should have been paced faster to show the true power of it like the manga did. Luffy flying should have been highlighted more through his legs pumping.
Some of the fillerish parts were okay, I did like that Doffy used Overheat twice, but then again I also liked in the manga how he didn't even notice Luffy on time for the Rhino Schneider whilst in the anime Doffy seemed at least some what more perceptive (and therefore stronger).
I can appreciate both versions to an extent. I realise in the future when I look up the Luffy vs Doffy fight on youtube it will probably be logner than 2 hours thanks to Toeis stupid pacing. Luffy vs Lucci was around 55 minutes.
>baaww Toei ruined Gear 4
How can you ruin something that was never good?
Learn to read retard. I said I LIKED Culvern flying around. I excluded the actual impact because it feels weak and slow.
The things I mentioned, are the things I like, again:
>Bouncing sound effect
>Culverin flying and bouncing
It's ok guys, Toei is just saving their resources for KINGU KONGU GAAAAN
No, my faith in Toei is destroyed after what they have done to One Piece, Toriko and Dragon Ball Super.
Toriko suffered the worst by far, video related: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_rKByu3FE8
I like the kabuki thing they were going for. Thought it was pretty funny. I think they understand how goofy/powerful G4 is, but it's not reflected in the animation. This episode should not have had as many still shots as it did.
maybe it'll look cool in the recap movie
re-read my m8...
Didn't know that was even a thing. Is it a fan-color or is it official?
Guess I'll wait 40 years and watch the remake/Kai-version of the OP anime to see it all animated properly.
Lffy will likely Awaken as his enxt upgrade. but that be tough. Turning surroundings to rubber doesnt have much of a different effect than what he can do already.
so likely it wont be that. so what will it be? turning his blood into rubber?
More official than the anime
>Lots of garbage but what can you do.
I wish Toei would just do filler. There's been enjoyable filler episodes before, and I'm sure they could figure out something to do other than just drag out chapters into entire episodes.
>Gear 5th:Awakened Fruit:BOUNCE HOUSE
I totally would not mine this. Tho Toejew would never do this.
I'm going to do it guys. I'm going to watch the entire anime from the start! What's the worst that could happen?
If you've read the manga?
You'll be disappointed
You'll consider dropping it at arlong park but then absolutely love everything else
Though you might get bored at Alabasta, Impel Down and Skypea
You have to be shitting me, Toei did a decent G4 transformation just to return to shit animation right before kong gun, less than a minute of real work, biggest let down since Nightmare Luffy.
>Didn't know that was even a thing. Is it a fan-color or is it official?
It is digitally coloured by One Piece's publication company Shuiesha.
So which strawhats has the best future waifu?
Luffy-Hancock= older women who can cook, clean,has plenty money, will take care her man no matter what, can fight, and Plus extremely loyal.
Usopp-Kayla= childhood friend who will sit their and listen to her man BS lies, is well off and becoming a doctor. Plus she's also loyal
Zoro-tashigi=future VA (maybe even admiral), knows a lot about swords and can make sure you don't get ripped off, kinda a tsundere. Pretty sure she's loyal(at least to smoker for now)
Sanji-pudding/viola=not much is known except for her mother is fat and you know how that old saying goes "look at her mother, that is how she will look later on" so idk. She may also have three eyes.... On the other hand viola forgot him after he left and moved on to God usopp, so she isn't very loyal, plus you will always have to text or put in your passwords 4,000 km always or else she will be able to see it, oh beware, if you cheat she could stab you and she loves to kick
It got bad, but post-timeskip anime is REAL BAD. So many more voices over still images, "Avengers Assemble"- tier movement ie: still bodies moving up and down and all around instead of actual bodily movement, a lot of reused scenes. Holy fuck they used the same crowd cheering cut for the coliseum for over 10 episodes.
And on the same topic, the new movie special with Foxy was some of the worst I've seen of this show, and that was an OVA. And it was surprisingly boring too.
I can at least go back to Impel Down and Marineford; they are tolerable in terms of animation, but goddamn this anime breaks my heart. Watching Dressrosa and rewatching Baratie is like watching two different shows.
Maybe some day, when
ifthe manga is finished and when the anime has been done for awhile, we'll get a gorgeous full on FMA:B style do-over.
What? I barely browse /a/ but just because some people shitpost about a certain character makes you hate him? You are not a fan, you are the shitposter.

Awakening will be enough to carry Luffy through to the end, though I'd like to see him get some other, unexpected powerup.
I'm betting on Luffy beating Blackbeard with raw strength, though. Haki beatdown.
The jump was around the end of Skypeia, honestly. Davy Back Fight, Water 7, and Eneis Lobby had plenty of recycled animation and terrible cuts. The true downfall for the anime has been adapting one-chapter/episode after Skypeia, and now onto the half-chapter adaptations we're getting now.
I really wish Toei would just give the anime a rest for a year or two, but that'll never happen as One Piece (anime) is a ratings giant. Pretty much a weekly staple for Japanese families at this point.
Toei long since stopped caring
Gold is being written by some hack whose previous movie was the typical Japanese live action adaption that was lambasted (the director has some promise but who knows)
It's depressing. You can't do anything about it, just sit and stare, think about what could've been.
Not as long as Toei still hold anime rights which will be forever. And they are the Activision of Anime: put in the least amount of effort for the max pay off.
I'd honestly take any other animation studio. If I had my way I'd go Madhouse since they've yet to fail me was a good action sequence
The last well animated and directed arc was the childhood flashback around episode 500.
The exchange between Sabo and Dragon was incredible.
The reuninion was also made great, but from Fishman Island onwards, it feels like something's lacking. It doesn't feel as romantic as it did.
Doffy's organs are literally held together by string at this point, it is impossible for them to get more fucked up
and he did fly at unobservable speeds
did you even watch the episode?
The punch should've set Doflamingo flying on impact.
But at least bouncing sound effect was pretty neato.
No way, anon!
Only Toei show you should be watching is Precure.
I didn't have a problem with any of those. In fact some of them were really good. The anime needs good quality fillers these days.
>Luffy manages to stay in the same place at one point in the air, despite Gear Fourth keeping him in constant motion.
That's not true though. He's clearly shown to be ascending in the air, it's just an optical illusion because the camera is zoomed on him too much and the backgronud is very far away. Seconds later it's shown that he uses G4 to stay afloat.
WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON
WHY DOES LUFFY HAVE A CYBORG ARM
WHY IS LUFFY EXPANDING?
FUCKING FUCK FUCK
Last arc I watched was Arlong Park on Cheez TV morning cartoons
I always thought this series was pretty straightforward adventure
Luffy has been inflating his hands ever since Enies Lobby (200 episodes after Arlong Park, if not more)
>and he did fly at unobservable speeds
Just look at the video for G2 debut. He disapeared right before using Rhino Schneider, but it's not the same. Everything Luffy was doing seemed less impresive than, say, his fight with Caesar before Monet interrupted it.
You know what I mean, anon.
They ruined the whole Gear Fourth in the anime.. guess it's time for me to stop watching it.. after 15 fucking years..
fuck...half my life... waisted

that's how gear 2 is in the manga thought, you don't even see him stretch
all these fools hating on gear 4 are likely enies lobby bandwagon jumpers
Just saw the episode and I liked it. This is why we need an anime for One Piece, it explained the Bound man and its abilities a bit better, since the manga's panels don't give enough of an idea exactly how it works or the finer details. Having said that, One Piece anime is beyond shit.
I got the clear distinction that Doffy is still stronger than Lucy when both of them are in their neutral state, but that Lucy's Bound man bumps up his peak strength to be equal to that of Joker at his peak. However, both of their prowess is still very different and distinct. Luffy is raw physical, while Doffy is high special. Oda's ability is not only being able to write a good story, but also sticking to the bounds and logic he imagines, in his contained world. He is a master at making you believe his bullshit.
Awakened Enel is our lord and savior
Enel will cleanse the world of the Tenryuubito and the will of D.
Enel will bring ultimate peace.
>Implying Enel didn't achieve Awakening on the moon

That's 8 or so years ago? Kinda long time ago to jump on the band wagon. Even Marine Ford babies that latched on when /a/ was flooded with threads and stickies on the front page, have 4 years under their belt by now.
You are quite the physically and mentally impaired guy not to understand what you saw in the manga..
I feel sorry for you anon.
If anything.. the anime made Gear 4 underwhelming compared to the hype the manga generated.
Enel did it first and did it better.

>If anything.. the anime made Gear 4 underwhelming compared to the hype the manga generated.
The manga killed all tension itself when it took a break from the final climatic battle to tell side stories while Ruffy rested up.
>You are quite the physically and mentally impaired guy not to understand what you saw in the manga..
I understood, there was just too much side clutter in the panels to enjoy. Its a weakness of Oda, that all manga reader can see. Action should flow; one panel to show intent of movement, the next to see the follow through. Oda's style is to show everything at once, both the movement, follow through and reaction to it. I personally don't like it, and its a majority of the reason why One Piece falters compared to other past, present and future action manga.
Sorry, but if you could just pull your face from Oda's cock, you could see the light too.
>The manga killed all tension itself when it took a break from the final climatic battle to tell side stories while Ruffy rested up.
Too bad the anime will draw it out 5 times longer and since it'll take more than 10 minutes to actually experience (like reading the manga), it'll be drawn out over 3-4 episodes, making it 2 hours or so.
Reminder that Enel found one of the Ancient Weapons on the Moon.
Reminder that Based Enel will be back stronger and more powerful
>The manga killed all tension itself when it took a break from the final climatic battle to tell side stories while Ruffy rested up.
I'm really looking forward to when the anime takes 4 months to cover the 10 minutes it takes Luffy to recover
He's also discovered the true history of the world.
I still believe that Enel will come back and will either be with Uranus or he will turn out to be Uranus itself.
>Too bad the anime will draw it out 5 times longer and since it'll take more than 10 minutes to actually experience (like reading the manga), it'll be drawn out over 3-4 episodes, making it 2 hours or so.
When the dust has settled, I wish they would faithfully redo the anime, with high quality animation. Shame that will never happen with Toei having sunk their claws deep into it. Japan is dead set on this voice acting dedication where no characters can be voiced by other actors.
The shitty one piece anime is the #1 reason why One Piece hasn't taken off outside japan. It'll go down as the best manga of our century, that no one likes.
Cheez TV ended in 2003/4.. One Piece didn't even air until 2008 after Naruto on TOASTED TV in Australia
>Australian here. I used watching OP on Toasted TV in 2006.

Well top kek because I am 18 and used to get up every damn morning before school to watch One Piece, Naruto and Yu-Gi-Oh/GX. Naruto started at the start of 2007, and One Piece started in 2008 after the first run of Naruto. The only other place One Piece would have aired, would of been on Cartoon Network and other foxtel related cartoon channels, Yu-Gi-Oh and a few other shows were the main ones in 2006 on Toasted TV.
The possibility dying from an ISIS in my country vastly overshadows the small change of dying by an Australian spiderlord.
I just hit 30.. Should i be worried now?
Hopefully Oda doesn't take too long.
It first aired during 2006 because I remember the exact daily events I used to undertake that year. Wikipedia states they began airing it in 2006, and if you check the official Australian OP site, it says that they chose to re-air it in 2007 due to popular demand from 2006. I could have sworn I'd seen a glimpse of it in 2005 but that may have been elsewhere.
>Animation for the transform looked good
>"aww shit, can't wait for the figh-"
>animation immediately goes back to shit the moment the fight starts
Is Toei that fucking thrifty? They couldn't afford decent animation for at least the first blows?
>This is why we need an anime for One Piece, it explained the Bound man and its abilities a bit better, since the manga's panels don't give enough of an idea exactly how it works or the finer details
Oh look the speed readers are hamstering again
I seriously want an entire arc of Mafia/family stuff/underworld brokerage with Mr. Prince
I'M DROPPING THE ANIME!
They only did the first parts of transformation right then fucked the whole thing till the end.
And faggots in this threads are fucking defending the Animation!
I'm glad the animation team shares my opinion the gear 4th reveal was never that great in the first place. Only wasted some money for 5 seconds to shut up the fanboys and dropped all effort afterwards.
Hopefully they kept the money for the last seconds of the fight and Doffy being a scary ass motherfucker.
I always thought that those of you who prefered manga versions of anime were nerds. But toei is a nazi company and it has destroyed the anime I loved so much but I still get hyped from the manga so I get it now. Utter disgust and disrespect on how they could do this to a legendary series and many others. How do they sleep at night?
luffy realizes that rubber has the potential to absorb energy and retain it for a while
so like the dude punches it and then luffy punches him back with his power+luffys
this of course makes all his gears stronger
Probably, but I don't have any more.
I'll take it you haven't reached Thriller Bark yet?
fuck you toei
It took me a while to warm up to Brook
It's likely partially due to his abrupt entry after the incredible saga of Water 7 and then prompt exit only an arc later.
Seeing him post timeskip with the crew for a longer period of time has helped
>Seeing him post timeskip with the crew for a longer period of time has helped
Even then though, he got shafted for the Dressrosa arc even though he could have played a good part. At least he and Sanji got some time on their own at Zou, and he might get a chance to shine alongside Zoro at Wano.
