Penguin appreciation thread
ITT: we appreciate penguin and dentist kun
when are we going to see vivi again?
No, Monet is alive but Ace isn't. Ace's fist hole didn't move off screen and lose all the blood.
What would happen if you got erased by Ain's power, then she got knocked out? Would you poof back into existence?
In 693, Caesar stabs Monet's heart with an icicle. Blood is everywhere, and she collapses. The very next chapter, the scene is as shown, with no blood, the icicle is still standing in the ground, and is now separate of the heart.
So, either Caesar, moments from passing out, after stabbing the heart, then grabbed the heart off of the icicle, cleaned it off of all the blood, then set it down and stabbed the icicle just below it, and only THEN passed out...
Or, being a snow Logia, Monet has control over other forms of water like Aokiji does. You only can feel your heart when it's not working right, so when she was stabbed, she could focus on the pain and manipulate the icicle out of her heart, (or vice-versa) but the intense energy needed to focus on that and do it while being stabbed in the heart made her pass out. She's still alive.

What the hell did Law's crew think they were doing on Zou? They seemed blissfully unaware that Law planned to die in Dressrosa
He probably told them he was going to defeat Doffy, leaving the possible dying out of it, and the fools totally believed that their awesome captain would have no problem pulling it off.
Blackbeard was not using haki against Ace yet Ace never turned into fire to heal after BB lost his hold on him.
The reason why Marco's ability is so amazing is because it can heal. You imply that a haki somehows linger in the users body.
The most important marine stronghold in the entire universe. A wanted pirate walks in wounded, and they don't capture him right there.
he walked in with Rayleigh and Jinbei
even without two Big Dicks escorting him, there were nothing but shitters there since MF was wrecked and there was no real reason for anyone, pirate or top-ranking marines, to be hanging around to stop him
>still haven't seen Syrup Village's reaction to Ussop's bounty
ITS KILLING ME
Why the fuck would be someone as carefree as Garp a marine? He talks about Roger like he was a hero and he most likely knows all the fucked up shit about the celestial dragons. How come he still served the most of his life as a marine?
No, Usopp goes next chronologically
>Cocoyashi (maybe Johnny and Yosaku react to Zoro)
>Laboon recognizes Brook, maybe
>probably Garp and Coby
>mfw people actually thought Ace would survive after this
My initial perception reading through it right now is that they have no way of dealing with the admirals. It seems hard to believe he would die because of this >>133869084 but the Marines clearly have the advantage. From that point I posted, Whitebeard hasn't even done SHIT other than inspire his men and break the frozen tsunami.
i'll never understand

>turns around and throws it all away because someone was talking shit about whitebeard
Did /a/ cry or were they pissed with oda for making ace kill himself?
Logia powers work by perception and manipulation of that perception, not simply some subconscious existence they have. For stronger logia, the power acts as instinctual for some simple attacks, but for others it must be controlled by willpower.
Neither Smoker or Monet can control their heart when their hearts are not being damaged since they can't sense them anywhere and everywhere they are. It's the same way you can't feel your heart beating despite knowing that it's in your chest. You can however feel it when you have a heart attack, when your rhythm is misplaced, or your beat has stopped, or you have a piece of something sharp in it. When that happened, Monet was able to detect the part of her body she can't normally feel, and was able to manipulate it.
Everyone remember to do your best to appreciate Penguin today!
Mother of God these are painful to read.
>Or, being a snow Logia, Monet has control over other forms of water like Aokiji does.
Aokiji has literally no control over other forms of water. Logias only control their element.
>You only can feel your heart when it's not working right, so when she was stabbed, she could focus on the pain and manipulate the icicle out of her heart, (or vice-versa) but the intense energy needed to focus on that and do it while being stabbed in the heart made her pass out.
What the fuck are you even saying?
>Uh, yes you can. Monet did it in another chapter when Nami burned her with the Climatact.
No you fucking can't. No logia has ever been shown to be able to do this.
I understand now why people say he is a troll.
He was lazy.
Law should put his crew on a treadmill until they get fit again
It didn't have to end like this.

Then how is he freezing the water that he bikes on? You're not seriously telling me he makes the ice.
>What the fuck are you even saying?
It helps to read things.
>No you fucking can't. No logia has ever been shown to be able to do this.
I didn't link it at the time because I didn't have the shot, but here it is.
Here's your response.
Because he's a fuccboi, why else?
Well that's just uncalled for, anon.
to show off his Corazon tattoo obviously
too bad Doffy didnt know what he was meant to be looking at
Nami doesn't have cow tits when she wears a kimono.
Anon, there's only one sweet boipussi running around here
i believe all one piece females have the ability to control their bust sizes through the rarest of hakis
Use the manga. And answer this >>133866559 >>133866605
Aokiji can't turn into water, nor control liquid water. He can use his ability to freeze something.
>everyone gets older during the timeskip
>chopper looks like he turned into a toddler
Yes, in the most recent color spread. And no she doesn't have cow tits.
Do the Heart Pirates have a professional tailor that made Penguin and Shachi's new retarded hats too?
can ANYone tell me what the thing around Marco's calf is called?
did you make that up or are you serious because I already guessed at that name and got pictures of brains and baby cows out of google but nothing resembling the thing Marco is wearing
I thought blackbeard as the villian would be boring when I heard that's how it panned out when I was reading Jaya. Marineford and Impel Down completely changed my perspective on him with him being fleshed out as a character. He's an ugly fuck but there hasn't been a single scene that he's been in that's been boring.
It's hard to imagine One Piece being worse after the timeskip while reading Marineford.
I know hula dancers wear things called kupe`e around their wrists and ankles to accentuate their movements while performing but Marco's gay accessory seems a bit too high up the leg.

Marineford is an excellent arc, well above Dressrosa. The issue with Marineford was that Oda's skill at that style of manga was so great, people who just started reading at that time, believed that One Piece was that kind of manga, and expected every following arc to succeed it in a similar way.
holy fucking shit just watched the final episode of the Franky vs. Señor fight.
>what were you thinking of, crying
>wipes away his tears
>lets have a drink, and tell me about the woman named russian
Holy fucking shit I have never felt so much love for Franky before. That just put him miles ahead of the other characters in my book.
>Marineford is an excellent arc, well above Dressrosa.
Marineford is the most simple arc of the series when it comes to plot structure and was pretty much nothing than random skirmishes here and there while Luffy tried to get from point A to B. It had great scenes towards its end but as a whole it is far from being excellent.
The build up of previous arcs had nothing to do with the structure of the arc itself. And no, other arcs were much more varied, while here the focus is on Luffy trying to get to Ace and that's it. If you are a fightbabby it is understandable somewhat that you hold MF in high regard, even though in my opinion none of the fights were really satisfying because they were extremely short.
The climax was Whitebeard's death, not Ace's. Try again. Ace was the protagonist's main interest, and Whitebeard's death overwhelmed it, as did Blackbeard and Shanks' appearances and actions.
All along the focus was Blackbeard's rise to yonko, even before Marineford started when he told Luffy he'd put on the greatest show the world had ever seen at Impel Down.
You realize the difference between the protagonist's concerns and the focus of a story arc, don't you?
We are not talking about the consequences of the things that happened in the arc and how they affected the main storyline, we are talking about the plot and structure of the arc itself, nothing more.
>usopp hard counters perona because he already thinks he's lower than dirt
Marineford had more actors and more complexity than most other arcs, you're just disgarding everything that makes it more varied and unique from other arcs and then claiming that it's not.
Even things like Squardo stabbing Whitebeard, Crocodile's intervention, Buggy's broadcast, and etc, put it far away and beyond most other arcs in terms of variance to other A to B arcs.
You're basically covering your ears and screaming that you're right even though you are wrong.
It's not a simple arc though. That statement was simply false. You can simplify any arc, but it's folly to try and simplify Marineford, which had more complexity than most other arcs in the story.
That Luffy was trying to achieve x objective is the same as any other arc and not a mark against it.
>You're basically covering your ears and screaming that you're right even though you are wrong.
Funny, that is exactly the impression I got from you, now stop it before you embarass yourself even more.
>You're basically covering your ears and screaming that you're right even though you are wrong.
Not him, but personally, I think you're the one that's doing this. The things you mentioned about the Marine Ford arc, you find list 10x more about any other arc.
Look nigger, that Marineford is simple and straight forward is not necessarily a bad thing. I enjoyed all the shit that was happening even though it was pretty cluttered with all the fights and I was pretty much hyped for the entirety of the whole arc. It was not an arc like any other because Oda wanted to draw a big battle and I think he did it well. But saying it had more complexitiy than W7, Dressrosa, Alabasta, Skypia or even TB is utter nonsense.
It's custom made? Where did he even pull that out from? Did he bring a bag of clothes out of Punk Hazard? Or Kanjuro can do highly customed stuff with this power.
Not pissed at Law or anything. I'm just curious.
Plot points in Marineford:
1. Did Whitebeard sell his allies out to save Ace?
2. WG attempts to assassinate Moria.
3. Kuma full robot
4. Buggy's broadcast
5. Whitebeard's speech
6. Blackbeard becomes a yonko
9. Whitebeard's last stand
etc etc etc
You're objectively wrong.
You haven't really done anything to demonstrate the contrast in complexity between various other arcs and Marineford, you just make an unwarranted and unjustified statement suggesting that it's simple in comparison.
Marineford's setting was more complex than Alabasta's, with Blackbeard's long term plan coming to fruition in a greater and more successful than Crocodile's failed attempt at a simple Charisma rolled rebellion.
Shitpost waifus and baits like Monet is alive, Doffy isn't Admiral/Yonkou level etc

do we at least know the pretenses for why sanji is not present
did he leave the crew?
did he say he'd leave and then come back?
did he say there was something he needed to do alone?
or is it time for enies lobby 2.0
Actually, your taste is shit if you EVER waifu the main character

>Kaido and Odin have met in the past and that lead to his first loss
it never occurred to me, honestly. But Usopp has no hook
you'd probably break him preTS. He's hot now but so is everyone else. Luffy is Luffy. Brook is all 'bone the skeleton yohohohohoho' joke votes. Franky shota has been a trending discussion in these threads. Chopper is from emerging Zou furfags.
the God-Usoppfags were all just memesters it seems
Sure I do. Not like you can hide anything from me. I've got an intelligence network.
So do we all agree that Sanji will be doing something awesome in his Mr. Prince kind of way just like back on Little Garden and the Sea Train?
That fucking scene. Robin leaning in all sensual like, those bedroom eyes and everything.
>Let's stick our noses in together
Fucking hell. G-8 was lewd!
Robin always looked like that before EL
now THIS is a DTF face
Marco occasionally goes lazy eyed or looks sad. The bedroom eyes only happen twice. Once with Ace and once with Kizaru
What if big mom has an
She's huge as fuck, no matter how strong you are, certain attacks are bound to wound in time, so she needs something really defensive and dangerous to keep up with the other yonko otherwise i have no idea how she's gonna fight.
God, I hope Marco joins Shanks. I don't really care much for Jozu and the others but Marco joining the Red Hairs would be awesome. I even wonder if Shanks offered the position because he thought Teach would try to kill Marco for some reason.
I still can't believe this thing is at least admiral tier
I think people just judge him by his looks. No matter what insane fruit, heritage, will he has, people will think he's a shitter just because of how he looks. At least, that's the vibe I get from everyone who dislikes him.
Ah that's right, nami probably told luffy and zoro that sanji is a noble and went to deal with it.
Those scenes really aren't similar though. Luffy and Ace wanted desperately know about Sabo's story but Luffy and Zoro don't really about Sanji's story since they know Sanji can take care of himself. The Monster Trio always knows what each other are capable off.
Kimonos, contrary to what some anime would make you believe, really covers up any hint of a bust in girls. It's really is not the best outfit to show off boobs.
It's perfect for wearing 8 meters of rope under it, though.

Just looked into the latest episode to see how it's going. Holy shit they dragged it on. I don't even think this shit is acceptable with 2 times the speed. You'd probably have to set your player on 4 times the base speed to make it watchable.
I think I just got all kinds of infections and some instances on cancer too.
the cycle continues
more people will see stuff like this when One Piece is recommended and ignorantly write the whole series off as trash
What did you expect, really ? I knew fully well that what we'd get was mediocre animation and great soundtracks. The only thing I was pleasantly surprised by was the flashback. It worked really well with the scene, imo.
How do you even recommend that anymore? Everyone realized how Dragonball dragged every fight to no limits in Z, what's so different about One Piece? Force of habit?
Nah, it feels more like Toei slaps these in every oppurtunity they get. Even the soundtrack isn't doing it anymore, since it's the same scene and you're kinda expecting it.
From my impression, they also just take whatever comes next. It only has to kinda fit in the scene and it's fine, no one will bother that much anyway. But I only watch it 3 times a year or so.
Marco is a sweetheart with permanent 'fuck me' eyes related to people who keep dying around him. Seems like a nice guy, is important, flirty/sassy, went in on all three admirals plus tanked a fist from Garp and doesnt deserve the beating that fate is dealing him.
Drums up sympathy and interest in his character.
Doesnt help that he's fairly cute
I did think there was a bit too much music in the episode but I thought it all worked pretty well. The Strong World Zoro theme was a welcome touch. And Pica simply didn't deserve the Shishi Sonson soundtrack. But, yea, I would say that the last soundtrack really didn't fit.
But still. I was content with what we got.
>he's fairly cute
This is where you're wrong.
>Coby has fucking conquerors haki as early as marineford
The page before it's unveiled I thought to myself if Oda would actually give him it at some point down the road.
holy shit, why is Law popular? Look how ugly he is
A frog is fine too
G4 chapter is one of the best action chapters of the series if not THE best. The onslaught was fucking insane and all the shit Luffy could do was just mindblowing and hype incarnate
people think Penguin's hat is cuter
Penguin doesn't have an ugly nose and killer whales kill people
....keep in mind that the shape of Marco's head makes it really easy took fuck him up and make him look bad
He's cute most of the time, I swear
with penguins massive weight gain and shachis new cool hat, that is sure to change with the next pool.
How would Akainu hear coby yelling out in a battlefield with guns and cannons going off?
I know it's a manga but every one of those guys including law and kizaru out by the submarine heard him? I thought the Marine dropping flat on his face was confirmation, though Helmeppo should have dropped too. Misleading if nothing else.
It's just living on the hype though. Correct me if I'm wrong, but every part of the fight was just flinging out techniques. Doffy just tanked everything they threw at him. Then Luffy went G4 to make Doffy tank even more, but that didn't have any tension.
It didn't involve any kind of dodging or countering, let alone improvisation, which is Luffys fortitude and what makes his fight so enjoyable.
It was as enjoyable for me as Luffy trashing Blueno with G2 and that was also one of the best moments of the series for me when it comes to fights. And when was the last fight Luffy improvised anyway?
No shit, Crocodile was a dangerous Logia against a relatively new Luffy. Doffy was a strong Paramecia against an incredibly strong and trained Luffy. Luffy already broke his strings. Not sure what eose you wanted him to do. Fight with one arm tied behind his back ?
Well if the next poll doesn't take another 8 years to come out maybe
Let people enjoy what they want, anon. At least you have the brain capacity to realise it was their opinion. Don't drag yourself down by using shitty buzzwords.
Pretty sure he actually meant Helmeppo, since he was shown in the page.
I want him to do more than just throw kick after punch in doffy's face. Just look at it, it's nothing http://www.mangatown.com/manga/one_piece/v69/c782/8.html
None of these attacks actually matter, they just tank them all day long. There's no choreography, no tension. Just the usual shounen box fight til mc uses his final attack to end it for good.
It's not like Oda can't do it better, since we already saw pretty good fights from him.
Pretty much everyone in this thread disagreeing with you just shows once again that you advocate a minority opinion
>implying Shachi wouldn't completely dominate penguin in a pool.
>None of these attacks actually matter, they just tank them all day long.
How much mattered all the attacks Luffy landed on Croc prior to their final fight or on Enel or Lucci? In the end every fight is decided by one super move by the protagonist.
luffy confirmed drug addict
What ? By that logic every single attack apart from the very final doesn't matter. That's retarded. We saw amazing choreography before Luffy went Gear 4. He was ducking and diving, throwing punches, triple spin kicksa and everything. Of course, it didn't do shit to Doffy but that's to be expected. It would have been stupid if Gear 2 Luffy could weaken the nigga that's been hyped for like a decade. The first proper New World Boss.
Yea, I was going to say that but I don't remember how far away Helmeppo was from Coby. But yes, it is insanely silly.
Why? Luffy improvising and catching his opponent off guard through that was what made it good. Crocodile also had better atmosphere overall.
Of course we all know shounen protagonists will win with a grand attack eventually. It actually makes it more believeable with some external wounds and when his opponent realizes, he needs to get his shit together and be more active. Which Doffy really didn't do for the most part.
You need to reread the fucking fight, mate. Doffy was getting shat on when Luffy activated Gear 4. He didn't even have time to react. All his dialogue was "Holy shit, what is with this power ? How the fuck is he flying ? How did I get here ? I want to go home." His attacks didn't even work against Luffy and he was screaming in his mind as to why exactly it didn't work. If that isn't him trying to get his shit together and be more active then I don't know what is.
Sure Doffy is arrogant to no ends. But that's hardly excuse to make the fight so unimaginative if you ask me. He isn't stupid either, so Oda could've used that to make him a bit less careless later.
>Corazon and Waterloo had a canon love confession and the former is 52
He meant it like he was his son you enormus faggot.
>Cavendish, Shirahosi, Rebecca and Barto are that high
>Teach and Garp are that fucking low
>Enel an Uroge on the same place
oh the irony
And after getting his ass handed to him, Doffy tries to fight back. He's still cocky because that's his fucking personality. That isn't going to change just because he got punched a few times. Doffy goes back on the offensive. Of course, it doesn't work because Luffy is that fucking good. He dodges that shit like a pro and slams the Bazooka.
>He meant it like he was his son you enormus faggot.
>using aishiteru for any family member that's not your spouse
Nigger, how was he careless ? He literally couldn't do anything to Gear 4. It is that fucking simple. He couldn't make a dent in Luffy and he couldn't hit Luffy with his awakening to save his life. He tried. God knows he tried. But it just wasn't fucking enough. That doesn't mean he was just standing there, head turned, whistling, pretending nothing is happening. Fuck outta here.
Yes and half of my point, which I early mentioned, is how the whole fight was just beating each others shit in. No movement like smart dodging to be seen anywhere.
I really don't see any witty moves in that fights. Most I can say, is how Doffy uses his fruit to rob Luffy of his options.
I'm gonna read the whole thing as a tankouban when it comes out here though. Maybe I'll spot more stuff then.
And I'm missing stuff like this.
Well the thing is the fight changed so drastically
Doflamingo goes from playing around and taunting Luffy with no serious damage to getting kong smacked and not being able to defend against it. He immediately stopped being careless and brought out the awakened strings but they couldn't stop him.
After Luffy got back up he even used parasite so he felt in control again but wasn't fooling around. Nothing had ever escaped that before and what followed was the final exchange.
I can understand disliking the haki defenses and finding the fight uninteresting after the initial shock of Gear Fourth. Though it's known that Luffy is going to fight the Yonko at some point, so Gear Fourth only putting Luffy on the same level as Doflamingo wouldn't make it seem like a significant enough power up.
