Is this the best transformation in anime history ?
Why do One Piece fags think they are better than the rest of shounenshits?
because it's long running and characters return after several hundred chapters
this makes them feel good
No but it's probably the best transformation in relation to the amount of anime OPfags have seen
So it's the best transformation in One Piece
Well, not even that.
And here come the sad faggots who do not even read One Piece. You are a sad bunch of individuals and I pity you.
>reads one piece
>calling anyone else a pleb
Go back to your Kancolle thread, pillow hugger
Compared to most battle shounen power ups it actually is. Here the author actually thought about how to make creative use of the base powers of the protagonist instead of just change his appearance, make him glow a bit brighter and make him shoot stronger beams.
So you're saying OPfags are bandwagon plebs who think that sales = quality
I rarely watch the anime but for this I tuned in.
Holy shit, it was bad. The most anticipated fight in the arc is so slow that it's not even funny anymore.
One punch, 2 mins of standing around and completely useless dialog, then a kick and repeat.
How can someone fuck up the source manga so badly?
I know you guys like to shit in OPM for whatever reason but the fights there were 100x times better paced, animated (generally speaking, this OP episode wasn't as bad as others), and more epic. It didn't meet my expectations in the slightest and only encourages me more to just stick with the comic. Oh and the rest of the episode was unbearable. First 10 mins of small folk running from the cage and shots of strings cutting shit? Really?
God damn it. I just looked up Haki and everyone has Naruto powers now. Luffy is also the chosen one with the legendary Haoshoku release blood trait and has gained ultra-precise Kenbunshoku optical abilities with most of the Straw Hats.
>people who don't read or watch One Piece go into threads about it and shitpost
Maybe it's mocked just here in Italy I don't know, but seeing this thread makes me believe that you're taking other people's posts way too seriously
>Is this the best transformation in anime history ?
Has the same shitpost aura as the aussie shitpost threads in /pol/
>How can white men even compete?
>people who like wan piss post off topic /co/ garbage because they dont watch anime
Shounen is not even a genre, you disgusting mongoloid. It's just a word that shows the manga's supposed audience.
One Piece is mostly read by "mature adults such as yourself" nowadays, you retard. check the OP audience polls.
When will be One Piece and Naruto banned from /a/ ?
Yes, post more smug anime girls to hide your mad
Haoshoku is really nothing but a lazy deus ex machina.
This whole "chosen one" thing already pissed me off when it was only implied before, like when people point out similarities between Gold Roger and Luffy but this shit really takes the cake. I feel like it goes against the whole idea of "anyone can be a pirate, lead a free life and do as they please as long as they dare" concept, a lot of the characters seem to follow. As it turns out, to really archive something you have to be born with it, sucks for you, 99% of people.
I actually wanted to catch up before I found this thread. Not that strongly, but fuck. Luffy literally has a sharingan and can create invisible energy shields like the daughter from the Incredibles. I heard about the blood springing, which I thought was kinda inventive, but this is just too much.
>Luffy literally has a sharingan and can create invisible energy shields like the daughter from the Incredibles.
Literally he does not
>I actually wanted to catch up before I found this thread.
haha, sure son
And there is not a single thing you can do about it
Dude is old and was only defeated by one guy in his prime, cut him some slack
Doflamingo also has an advantage over non-chosen ones. It doesn't guarantee to win but it's still bs. As Chinjao said in the Collusseum, the new King will be someone with Haoshoku, because only those have the "quality of a king", ruling out the vast majority of people.
>The user can also use this Haki to predict an opponent's moves shortly before they make them, thereby making the attack much easier to evade with enough skill. This prediction appears to the user as an image or brief "premonition" of what the opponent will do in the user's mind's eye, and the damage the user will take if the attack actually "hits".
How is this not a Sharingan?
Impact-wise this is true but in the end all it was was a dude suddenly getting blond hair and being able to shoot stronger beams. Like every other Dragonball power up after that.
Easy to say that when it's all you've seen
I love how he looks like Donkey Kong in that form.
HE HAS NO STYLE
HE HAS NO
THIS KONG, HAS A RUBBER FACE
how could it even be? he pulled it out of his ass, saying he had to fight scary animals 'n shiet.
he even bends the rules of of how 'haki' is supposed to work and defeats doflamingo merely through plotarmor and being badass after a timeskip. to undergo a real transformation the protagonist has to sacrifice something, but not luffy no he has 'haoshoku haki' just because. I'm sick and tired of hearing that One piece is different, it demoted itself to shit-tier a long time ago.
I don't think you understand how the whole haki thing works. It's just willpower, you want to fuck up a dude so badly, you're so sure no one can fuck you up so badly, you're so sure you can kick every dudes ass so badly, that during the fight, you can punch a fucker who normally couldn't get punched, defend against an attack that normally could hurt you or just knock out a huge group of weak faggots, because you're so sure of yourself, they spill spaghetti everywhere.
In other words - having King's haki, the one that lets you knock out fodder, the only only few people have, shows that you were raised with the correct view on life. You are so damn sure you can accomplish your goal, your sheer willpower is enough to knock out anyone who stands in your way. And if sometimes you're hurt or tired, obviously your willpower gets lesser too - that's when you can't do stuff you normally can. That's why, even when he was hurt, Luffy could at least get angry enough to knock out all the wolfs that wanted to hurt Bon Clay in Impel Down.
I think a lot of people just give Haki a bad rep and call it Naruto tier, because some faggor thought it'd be better to leave it as haki in the translations, instead of going with a fucking normal word, and calling it willpower or predisposition, whatever the correct term is.
>2009 are now oldfags
Fuck, man, what will you kids call 2005 in a few years? Ancientfags?
never said I've never read it. I started collecting the manga a long time ago when it first came out. I simply keep up with it to see how this steaming pile of gear 27 shit will come to an end.
>magical energies asspull
You have no brain
you are buthurt that nobody gives a shit about your gfavorite cartoon so you need to shit on one piece to get your sad frustrations out of your system
You are a toxic turd
casual cross boarding scum should off themselves
Y'all one piece niggas telling me Gear 4th looks better than this?
>no one has posted the actual best transformation yet
Just from pure badassness and awe, this is by far the best. And it even works perfectly with the established power system
You know what's even less fun? Following a protagonist that dies on the first episode and never sees the end of his journey. The main goal of storytelling is to focus on a character that succeeds or at least teaches future generations some sort of lesson, imagine if the story had focused on one of the marines in the very first episode that died. Do you WANT the story to focus on some nobody, because if you want that, go play FFXII and tell me Vaan was a good main character.
no gear 4th isn't asspull
the kamina transformation is
you read it wrong
gear 4th is the opposite of an asspull
I flat out laughed when I first read the chapter with Gear Fourth. I really preferred the kind of power ups Second and Third were, using the power of rubber as their base, exaggerations that weren't too extreme. They had distinct weaknesses originally too.
Fourth is extreme. Luffy becomes a gigantic, ripped King Kong with Haki tattoos. It increases his speed, power and resistance to damage immensely. He can even virtually fly.
but Oda still manages to keep it grounded somewhatno pun intended. with bouncing side effect played as humour and the harsh effect it has on his body. Luffy has always been about substance over style with his moves throughout the series and his one big power up being utterly ridiculous looking can be arguably fitting. I understand that for Luffy to contend with the monsters waiting farther in the New World like the Yonko he would have to have something new. I'm not a huge fan of it but I think it's played alright for what it is.
I'm not commenting on what Toei did to it though of course. I don't even want to bother with how depressing it is.
>not being able to like wide variety of anime
get a load of this faggot guys, he can't even enjoy shonen and cute girls at the same time!
>It's different so it's good
One piece niggas delusional as fuck
>pseudoscientific bullshit that the author pulls just to make him punch harder and faster
go way faggot, also it looks horrible as fuck
Honestly lads when you think about it Naruto only has 1 bad arc (Final war arc) and bleach only has 2 (Fullbring and current) while one piece's only good arc was Sabaody.
Objectively speaking the rankings should go like this:
Naruto > Bleach > One piece
>gon's egdy asspull transformation
>he just becomes mascular for no reason
You need to be 18 to post here
Here's the transformation from another thread. It doesn't have a full shot for whatever reason.
I have to warn about Toei quality here. This is actually GOOD for what they usually do if you can believe it.
I'm quite partial to the Djinn Equips from Magi myself.
>I haven't seen HxH: the post
It's sad to the think about how many great series Wan Piss fags have missed out on because they keep investing time into their never-ending shitshow of series
At least in Jojo the pseudoscientific bullshit is used originally to make strategies. In OP they just punch harder and move faster.
Josuke and Valentine are better than any shit Oda will ever pull out
No I will not accept Naruto as a good series. I'll accept the manga version, before the timeskip.
After that it deteriorated into a mess with stupid plots, characters that have no reason to do stuff and villains that we never heard of them and didn't care.
The entire series was building up Orochimaru as a villain and the main antagonist. Suddenly they bring up Madara... Who the fuck was that guy and why we should care? Then the random avatar of god/stupid woman appeared into an even bigger decision and they made Orochimaru to go to the side.
One Piece no matter how shit it'll become even in 10 years when they say a "Luffy vs Blackbeard" even older fans will see that because they have seeds for that showdown for many years.
imagine watching this guy come at you with this look ready to attack you
I would shit my pants
If reading HxH makes me into an idiot like you, who thinks he's some kind of meme master for calling a series "Wan Piss" instead of One Piece, I'd rather not touch it. Just fucking enjoy your shit and give it a rest, faggot.
Not only did I read the whole HxH manga (yes, since there will never be another chapter), I also watched the 99 version at a time when you most likely were still shitting in your pampers.
Fuck, this looks good. I kinda wish I had Oda's official G4 art when I was drawing fan art.
>Just fucking enjoy your shit and give it a rest, faggot
you started it nigger. OP fags are the most irritable faggots in this thread
shitty series that has a billion chapters<great series that had a good run and wrapped up the main two character's stories
no but its not the worst
i am scared onepiece might be heading into dbz terratorie where nobody knows where the powerlevels are and every fight is who shouts the loadest.
Good thing i trust Oda
i did idiot
he was supposed to be the guy who told gon about his useless father
and for some reason gon became a fanboy of a fodder character that he met again after a 1000 years and still was crazy about him
garbadge tier writing
>shitty series that has a billion chapters<great series that had a good run and wrapped up the main two character's stories
And people like this call OP-fans delusional
>I bet this plot element will sound really stupid if I way oversimplify it!
How was your intro to shitposting 101 class last night?
>, I also watched the 99 version at a time when you most likely were still shitting in your pampers.
Only newfags try to bring up how old they are
>implying that HxH 99' even aired that long ago.
You'd have to be in fucking high school to have not been able to watch it on tv when you were younger
>saves his life several times
>tells him the truth about Ging
>gives him a goal in life
>dies because of him
>somehow getting upset at this is bad writing
You are one retarded nigger.
Official ongoing shounenshit rankings:
1. One Piece
2. Nanatsu no Taizai
3. Hunter x Hunter
100. Nigger Clover
900. Fairy Tail
9000. DB Super
9001. World Trigger
>1. One Piece
>2. Nanatsu no Taizai
You should kill yourself. They're both garbage.
so by that logic luffy had to transform to a magical energy faggot just because shanks saved him and sacrifised his arm for him
and can you not type like a fucking illegal immigrant who just discovered computers for the first time? No wonder such a retard would have a child's understand of gon's character arc
If you wasn't a blind fuck you'll see it reaches bump limit whenever a new chapter comes out and it has having a sinbad anime in spring.
Yeah the sales went down since the flashback arc almost killed the series.
strawhats are the best main characters out of every manga
prove me wrong
Magi>Nanatsu no Taizai>My Hero Academia>Hiatus x Hiatus>Toriko>Dragon Ball Super>World Trigger>>>>Bleach>Fairy Tail>>Black Clover
Do you think you are deep and special because you watch HxH or something?
Where's the Luffy who sat down, says I don't care, people die. And then punched Vivi to make her realise he has friends who help her if she asks?
Where is the goofy but serious in the right timeone with great ideas and quotes?
All he does nowadays is acting as a retard.
Toriko (Gourmet World)>>>>> One Piece (New World)
>comparing different characters in different situations
>implying getting injured and dying are the same thing
>implying Luffy has the same guilt issues as Gon
You are getting more and more retarded.
you got nothing huh?
You just got urself BTFO
So everytime someone dies the main character must become the chosen magical energy faggot just because he is sad
Thank god oda is better than this
Toriko is and was never relevant. And this after they tried so hard to shove it down everybodes throats with DBZ and OP collabos
Gon's transformation was the best since it was actually a last resort and had massive risks unlike most transformations which were completely forgotten after a couple of episodes due to another one appearing.
>Ctrl F Psyren
not just ruffy's current "final form".
but admittedly, he looks the most retarded out of all character designs I have ever seen. Even bartholomeo is not as unlikable as ruffy's new form.
thank god we have the furries licking him all over in the new arc, that will make up for everything.
Yeah m8. Eat shit, 50 billion flies can't be wrong.
And that old joke says everything about WJS rankings.
However I don't say One Piece is shit, but it's on downhill since years.
Personally, I loved Mob's transformation here.
>However I don't say One Piece is shit, but it's on downhill since years.
PH is better than FI. Dressrosa is far better than PH. Zou looks extremely promising so far. Sorry but I only see it going straight up hill.
There are people in this thread who like the "OOOH I AM SOOO ANGRY!!!" and "UUUUH I AM SO SAAAD" transformation trigger.
>Manchildren still arguing over shounenshit
Read mature artistic seinen manga you plebs like pic related.
sad but true
Literally all the garbadge naruto/bleach/dragonball/hxh cliche bullshit
Fishman Island was kinda bad, but it's been getting better ever since then. Dressrosa had some pacing issues, but the conclusion was satisfying, and we have the year of Sanji to look forward to.
I wish Berserk was still as good as it was 10 years ago.
>uh crap, I made the villain too strong
>THE HERO TRANSFORMS!
>phew, got out of that corner
>shit, the fight isn't long enough, I want to milk this more
>THE VILLAIN TRANSFORMS
>phew, thank god I don't have to come up with new plot for a few more issues
Transformations are shit
>there are people in this thread that think gear fouth isn't the best transformation ever happened in an action manga
this is why we can't have nice things
uguu~ look at my maturity anon.
tits, pussy, ass, moe, puss, adult, mature, fuck, cock, piss
shonens and harems are for adults
look at my bleach and luckystar figure collection :DDDDDD
I do, but doesn't remeber when he did anything silimar since years.
More example what I mean:
His fight against Krieg and his speech about who's grave is here and wo will die where.
and so on
I bet you know what I mean.
You see us seinen niggas don't argue over which seinen series are better because we ain't kids like you.
I'm saying about the fact that people don't even care about Aizen. I'm happy to see that.
I kind of like how all the One Piece colorspreads of the last 6 or 7 yers have looked like celebrity photoshoots. The Strawhats all look like the young people with amazingly high salaries in glossy magazines, but there's always a sense of camaraderie in them that makes me warm and fuzzy inside
We can't have nice things because faggots like you think that a shitfest of cliches and stereotypes is decent. OP is just a shitty dragonball ripoff with just a different setting.
Enjoy your 300 volumes of "crew going to islands, crew punching the baddie, crew doing this again"
i know the are rules of magic in hxh
but it is still shit because whatever happens there is a way out of an asspull
for example gon became strong because he was sad a fodder without even a personality died and then he almost died because fear not killua had a sister that can do whatever she wants literally
this is garbadge
dragonball had better universe laws than this abomination of a series
Or you probably read just shonenshit and think that every little variation on the theme is like a totally new thing. There isn't even a general plot in OP, no character growth, the fights are "wins who punches harder" and the MC is literally Goku.
I read it until the fishmen arc, but then i dropped this shit
but it is like that
kite is a who character
he was literally on 5 chapters max
a giy that ging knew and told gon about his father
How is that a reason to make gon transform to the most powerfull thing
its shit writing anon
stop being a fanboy
And don't forget killuas sister can literally do whatever she wants and killua can contoll her ''evill'' side
Looking at all the autistic and retarded posts on /a/, insulting each other over which anime are greater when all they rate is cute faces, tits and ass, it's pretty obvious that the only manga readers and anime watchers who don't have a screw loose are fans of shonen and seinen, because they are the only ones that I have never seen shitting up a place, shitposting and arguing about stuff that others enjoy.
Meanwhile on /a/, the board for retards, fatasses and idiots talking about how patrician they are and that everything with a plot instead of cute girlfaces is shit.
If you weren't such wimps willing to lick every woman's feet, then you would be able to have a chance at a gf in real life.
People say my little pony or furryfags are bad, but the moefaggots on /a/ are the shithole where all the cancer spreads from.
Normalfags say anime is bad. No, it's moeshitters like the people on /a/ who are worthless insects. Disgusting people like you guys are the sole reason anime is generally considered shit for manchildren.
And partly they are right, most of you are indeed manchildren. Very few actually read good seinen and most good manga don't get a good anime adaptation cause the anime industry is full of fat losers who would spend their entire cash from their mcdonalds work for anime girl figurines, posters and sex dolls.
The problem with Dressrosa is, when did Luffy turn into this SJW faggot? Hey Mingo you did bad things to the folk so I will kick your ass.
Since when does he care about avergae people?
It's funny after he and hes crew beat the shit out of some guys at Enies Lobby just because they tried to did their job as a marine soldier.
They weren't bad guys. Even Luffy acknowledged himself most of the marine is a good guy and protect people and peac and other shit.
He freed a lot of criminals from ID and didn't bother himself with consequences. And now he is pissed on he found a pirate who rules a kingdom?
>literally the first character introduced who sets everything in motion for the MC and saves his life several times through the series
>him dying because of the MC's incompetence is not a reason to be angry at himself
You are being pathetic now anon.
he was mad because doffla fucked his friends up
the people were just an extra on luffys anger
also remember luffy used a techinque that transformed him
it wasn't just random energy boost
You are telling me you read over 600 chapters of a manga that is "shounenshit without a general plot, no character growth etc." in your opinion? Sorry if I find that a very tiny bit hard to believe.
>Befor it the fights were creative now they turned into my haki is stronger than yours so I will win shit.
There are 5 fights alone in the last arc that prove you wrong, but nice meme faggot.
again it doens' matter if he is important
thats not an excuse for gon to be powerfull because an important element of his is dead
you don't transfomr if someone important dies
you fucking retard
Yeah, sorry, the crew of PIRATES doing meaningless things and helping random fuckers distracted me from this original and interesting plot.
The fights were NEVER interesting. It was just Luffy finding some bullshit to power himself up so he could proceed to just punch the villain to death.
>ITT shounenfags arguing whose shit smells worse
The same day anime about cute girls doing cute things will be banned.
>say he's not important
>"w-well it doesn't matter if he's important"
You could at least pretend not to backpedal you enormous faggot.
Also the reason Gon transformed isn't because Kite died, it's because he chose to give up on everything just to kill Pitou and himself.
>The fights were NEVER interesting
You should be creative back then. Like Sanji figured out to blow air into the fishmen's gill underwater.
Or Usopp always led his opponents into tricks.
Nami used the Tempo in creative ways, etc.
Do you even know what are you trying to argue about?
my point is not whois important retard
my point is that you don't transform in to a powerfull energy edgelord just because you are angry
get a brain in that empty skull of yours
I expect some fucking decent plot in 600 chapters, not 99% useless shit and 1% of actual plot. But hey it's a shonen, the author can start with a simple retarded plot and then just make up meaningless things to suck money from faggots that will think that OP is the biggest masterpiece ever.
>Do you honestly just expect them to sail to the most dangerous part of the world without anything happening in between?
YES, it has no sense that they start in the weakest shitty island and while they progress they get stronger and find stronger enemies. Videogame logic
It's funny as hell though and the sheer number of fans freakout out about how it didn't look badass or cool was entertaining.
Luffy would probably not have met those people if not for his alliance with Law. Doffy only started shit with the straw hats, and use the mera mera no mi as bait so he could break up their alliance.
so you are saying he didn't tranformed without trying?
because what i saw was gon transforming into a faggot just because a literally who fodder died and you come to excuse this shit by sayin blah blah kite was important
who gives a shit
This was lazy
lets make gon poerfull because he needs to win since togashi fucked up he needed an asspull
stop excusing this shit by using the LE Mature meme
The fourth gear is based around the concept of rubber carbonization used to make bowling balls.
It is exagerated for plot reasons, but everything is in there. It's way harder than usual due to haki and heat from fast blood circulation (gear 2), but it's still maleable and bouncy due to air compression on muscle tissue (gear 3 on muscle, not bones).
Basically Luffy now has the malleability and strength to do just fuck shit up because a punch of his on this form is the equivalent of a homing flaming hot bowling ball comming to your face at sound speed.
I think it is even more inventive than most other "power up" transformations on shonens.
And I don't really get why people are getting mad at this being based on dragon on some level. Any fucking transformation is, fuck off.
But yeah, fuck me right? My tastes for anime are shit.
>posts a random year date
>somehow this makes him correct
go back to school
Wow you're really taking me on a ruse cruise. It makes perfect sense that it would happen like that because they started in the weakest sea. If you actually read it though you would know that a lot of the threats they faced were much greater than they should have been. Arlong for example was much more dangerous than the info/ his bounty let on because he was working with corrupt marines, and Enel would have reduced them all to Ash if Luffy wasn't his one natural counter. Croc would have probably shit on them as well if not for Luffy's dumb luck and tenacity.
>i didn't pay attention so it's bad
>calling Kite fodder again when i already proved you wrong twice and you even admitted "b-but it doesn't matter if he was important"
>being this mad
I'll assume you're either autistic or shitposting and stop replying to you.
only a normal person will listen to you
and thats rare
Meh, it's not like my life revolves around posting here.
To be honest I don't even go on /an/ that often.
I'm just waiting for the next troll to pass by and do everything he can for a fraction of my attention. It's cute, really.
>he literally just punches harder except there's some retarded pseudoscience behind it to try to explain it
>OPfags will delude themselves and pretend this is good
Sometimes i can't tell if they're worse than narutards.
ARGUING OVER FICTIONAL SHIT
and yet I'm sure you've defended SOL on several occasions. Just cause you can have fun watching and adventure/powerup show doesn't mean everyone else has to be dull and boring.
Why don't people like it? Sure it looks a bit strange, but it also looks pretty intimidating. The creator actually went ahead and made a form which was completely original from other forms, and it was a logical progression of his power. Unlile all the ones where they just change color or their eyes turn red.
This guy gets it. But then this is /a/ so you canbassume that whatever the right opinion is will be the exact opposite of what /a/ thinks.
it's about as reasonable as steel pokemon shrugging off a large ass boulder but getting shrekt by a punch that would in reality have only fraction of the energy. using type advantages to disregard logic is at best tolerable and at worst unsatisfying.
>OP is just a shitty dragonball ripoff
OP is better in every way, there are similarties to db since Oda is a fan
there was nothing in dragonball that has the level of detail and thoughts put in in the world and locations like in OP, it's not even comparable
Oda created a gigantic world and he cant keep up with his own thoughts, he even said that there are tons of things he left out since it would take way too long(kinda did already) to move forward in the actual story.
At the beginning of the series, back when people started comparing him to Roger, the only D's were Liffy, Ace, and Roger.
i haven't finished catching up so I'm not sure what happens to this fact or if I've already forgotten something, but it was clear from the beginning that people saw him as a Rogers successor.
all this anger
One of yhe reasons I like One Piece is that the characters use natural, or at least biological abilities to fight, instead of using magic energy type #6831
the devil fruits are a unique way of creating a power type
Yes, people saw him as successor. But not because of his name but because of his actions and personality. Most people don't realise that Luffy has the initial until they make the comparison.
