Usual early week chapter longing
A thread for a popular series anon since the other one hit the limit and is about to die
I don't know what you expect since this has been the norm for popular series, like it or hate it, for years
I call it Art.
Everyone remember to do your best to appreciate Penguin today!
Can't wait to see Zeff again.
Schichibukai Sanji? I always wondered how the WG managed to find pirates to send them bats. Maybe the ALIVE bounty is for the whereabouts of whoever they want to make a schichi.
No, it went Luffy, Zoro, Usopp last time, though there was also the places in between and such, like the marine base Luffy freed Zoro from before the dojo, and Gaimon and Sarfunkel. I guess they may skip the ones not directly tied to the crew this time, but the God Usopp poster is sure to drive everyone fucking nuts, especially these guys.
I guess the Baratie chefs won't get as much of a kick out of Sanji's poster this time, though he still looks fairly goofy.
I wonder if he got a tone dial with Brook's music?
They WERE jobbers, I would say NOW its reasonable for Luffy to have beaten one.
It's ridiculous that Crocodile lost before, and Moriah was a stretch as well.
The whole scale of power is mostly in flux of lieutenants though.
All of Doffy's subordinates jobbed in extraordinary fashion.
All of Whitebeard's subordinates jobbed in extraordinary fashion.
All viceadmirals are professional jobbers.
Also Buggy is the opposite of jobber.
Not saying he's a noble.
But Sanji clearly has some form of a serious secret going on, and it's associated with his identity since he wasn't identifiable in his wanted poster until post-dressrosa, unless there's this much setup for some lame "gay noble wants to fuck him in the anus" joke.
she is cute but she betrayed her family
not that that's a surprise to anyone. Especially not Doffy
I forget Oda makes good lolis too
I got you brah
I'd suggest browsing the archive next time though. Would have gotten you results infinitely faster
>entire strawhat crew has a ton of trouble taking on oars
>nightmare luffy treats him like a fucking ragdoll
It would have happened at the end of Dressrosa if he were going to be a schichibukai.
Fuji likes Luffy.
Fuji wants to fuck with the Shichibukai system.
Cannot politically attack Luffy.
Would save face in the public eye.
Could claim Luffy traded defeating Doffy for the position or something.
so uh.. i was looking for one piece figures online and i found this
should i buy it
How many of them actually give a fuck? The fact is that Luffy consistently decks other pirates while leaving civilians alone. He could have bullshit way of playing it off like he did with the fleet.
It wouldn't be a problem until he had a situation like Marineford where he was required to oblige to keep his status.
But then there's also the fact that any hope he may have had of becoming a shichibukai went out the window when he and his crew beat the shit out of that family of Tenryuubito.
The ONE PIECE is actually his stash of unpublished loli doujins he made
And I got called a pedophile for putting Sugar and Goldenweek on my list of top OP girls, fuck all ya'll.
Will we ever see Goldenweek post timeskip? Maybe in this cover story we'll see the Spider Cafe.
We got to see Rica post timeskip so its possible. Always wondered what ever happened to Goldenweek.
The worst part about this is he acts like he doesn't know what manga is. Retards are so transparent. Nigger that pretends like he isn't a fat weeb, what a life.
Well sure anon. All you have to do is watch about three minutes or either video and you can see that he is not an intelligent fella.
>I read the magna
>"help me in the comic section"
>"I'm driving over to Japan"
This Muppet of a man needs to be stopped.
>mfw realizing people like this actually exist
I think a better question would be what Buggy DOESN'T hard-counter which is just amusing and I'm not even a Buggyfag.
one of the things I want to see most in one piece is a buggy/shanks combo attack, or just them fighting side by side in general.
like honestly If I never get that i'll be really upset.
>Shanks using Buggy's arm
mite b cool
Well, looks like i need to learn how to speak moon
i just learned about this one piece tokyo tower
and this one piece store
I don't give a shit what anyone says. Vivi and Carue are Straw Hats, and always will be. Even to this day they appear in the chapter covers from time to time.
When things really go down, they'll likely bump into them again. Alabasta was a great saga.
For some reason they translated the names of the kings but not the rest of the minks that have japanese words in their names. But Inuarashi is literally dog then the second half of the word for porcupine.
Having 3 girls on the crew would have been perfect
sometimes it feels like robin and nami don't really talk alot to eachother
>Oh so this is Inuarashis name
I assumed from the "duke" and "dog" parts this would be obvious.
It is interesting that no other translator managed to notice the actual origin for the name though.
The colored comics version is really nice. I am on chapter 100 so far, and so far the few anime episodes I have seen have been pretty disappointing. Are there any fights later in the series I should check out after I read them?
the main fight of ennies lobby was pretty good, the voice acting was amazing.
lots of anime scenes are garbage animation and pacing wise but the voice acting is always top notch.
just watch videos of the scenes that you really enjoy.
Some of them did go out with a whimper
However you have to realize the caliber of opponents most of them fought. Elite New World fighters, Straw Hat pirates and another Supernova.
Compare that to the crews of the other Shichibukai
The earlier episodes are quality for the most part, you can't go wrong for the main moments of the major arcs. Water 7 for me was when the adaption was at it's peak with art style, animation and direction.
that one guy reminds me of suleimon
Anyone else getting overwhelmed in opdb? I swear there's too much shit to do right now and the gacha has been absolutely merciless all damn week
I've been hoping that Goldentime Jango would drop sometime but I suspect he just doesnt at this point
I've only been playing in dance party, I don't bother with most of the dance hall events. I can't imagine trying to constantly tier for the 5-star leaders since the downtime between events is so short. Hoping they will add best boy Bellamy as a leader. New 4 or 5-star supports would be fine too.
Is there any good sites for opdb? Tumblr's not worth going on for discussion. I don't know if a thread on /vg/ would pick up enough steam.
i'm crying again lads
Needs more Chimney.
Some faggot said Berserk is still on hiatus and i was called a shitposter when i simply stated that it's finally releasing chapters on a monthly basis and Guts will be off the boat this upcoming chapter.
IT'S BEEN OVER A FUCKING DECADE AND THE BOAT RIDE IS FINALLY ENDING TAKE THAT STICK OUT OF YOUR ASS AND LET'S JERK OFF TOGETHER
Nah m8 i never implied that i know better than to think people posting in this thread are anything more than plebs only reading entry level shonenshit.
It's why i even made a thread for this general to be banned so you vermin can crawl back to whatever shithole you came froms ince you clearly don't belong on /a/
Trust me, I will be enjoying myself and the new chapter but this isn't the thread to talk about it, anon. No matter how dead it is in here.
>Shanks has red hair
>Buggy has blue hair
>They will always be opposites, but remain friends
>It's why i even made a thread for this general to be banned
hahaha, keep trying you buttblasted piece of trash
People think Vivi isn't a Straw Hat? The whole crew consider her an honorary member, they were even going to bring her along if she chose to come with them. She is probably going to be the number one supporter for them if they are brought up at the Reverie
Also it makes me wonder how different One Piece would be if Vivi had sailed with them
I haven't been reading since a little before the end of Dressrosa, is the 7th Shichibukai supposed to be a parody of Hunter x Hunter?
>major old man character dies
>his son that was never mentioned before comes out of nowhere and starts trying to start shit in his absence
It would be a funny, weird twist as is common in One Piece
Instead of it being a life changing experience he just throws his Whitebeard stuff away and dresses like a weirder Kaido.
That isn't a funny, weird twist whatsoever. That's an actual, proper twist. The one I can even barely call a funny, weird twist is Moomoo or whatever being Hatchi's pet. You're like those people who think Strong characters having joke fruits is typical of One Piece.
Sure but weird twists that just seems unnecessary isn't. Weeble can be a complete gag character but him being Kaido's son just sounds silly.
Of course, I'm not saying it will never happen or whatever, I'm just sayin.
The series can be wildly unpredictable but that's part of what makes it fun
I brought it up because of how this Whitebeard theme is his whole character. So it'd be funny if there's a light at the end of the tunnel for Weevil and then Oda casually throws in "actually you're not his son, you're this other big shot's son, have a nice day".
But that would kinda ruin his entire character. Right now, Weevil is a mega strong retard who wrecks Whitebeard associates and wants to kill Teach because of what he did to WB. If the "light" at the end is just him being Kaido's son and just standing around with his thumb up his ass then I'd rather be in the dark. Yes, Weevil probably isn't actually going to be WB's son but I can see him being accepted by Marco and the others or something after his Mom gets the shit kicked out of her. He'd learn to have fun and go on adventures with his "brothers". That's what I see happening instead of some rabdom ass Star Wars bollocks.
I still wonder what Weevil will do to this series. It will probably let the WB pirates come back into the picture, but besides that, how much of a threat will he be.
Can't say it's not interesting. I wonder what makes him such a fucking monster.
This has gotten way too much discussion on a mere funny thought and it doesn't matter how it turns out for me, if his story turns out interesting then that's great.
It's just that there are lots of characters waiting to be a part of the story, have their backstory told, etc. and there will be plenty of new characters who get the same treatment.
On first impression I don't care much for Weevil and his whole persona is a joke anyways. I don't need some tragic backstory and a face change, I'd be content with his purpose to be reintroducing Whitebeard's crew and allies in a way that requires Luffy to help them out personally which in turn makes them allies for whatever massive conflicts will come.
This is what makes me think he has to have a ridiculous body similar to Kaido or Bobby Funk coupled with power.
I doubt he dodges much of anything unless he has a really random ability that allows it.
>I'm not a newfag
>I went out of my way to make a thread crying about it because not only do I not care but I live in a bizzaro /a/ where I think the mods (or anyone) will take me seriously
Yeah, you showed us.
my rank is still pretty low and I cant beat Perona at stage 70 for whatever reason so ive been doing the guerrillas and event (got that CP9 Kaku at the last minute yesterday but no hope at all for Sengoku)
While I want that DH Lucci, I know i'm not even likely to win a 4 star at the rate my rank gets knocked down every morning
I havent found a community that talks about it.Allegedly, there used to be generals on /vg/ but I never see one when I go to check. Perhaps twitter?
Fuck off speedreader
Fujitora wants the shichibukai gone completely, it's been fucked around with enough by nearly every warlord.
Shut up you dumb faggots
It can't be more irrelevant than Dressrosa. Defeating Doffy messes up Yonkos plans but Luffy didn't even intend it that way. He sees Doffy and all the bullshit in Dressrosa that's why they fight. 100 chapters is too much for something like this.
>Introduces Fujitora and sets him up as New World Smoker
>Usopp unlocks Haki
>Learn that D.'s are the Tenryuubito's enemies
>Learn that there's a treasure in Marijoa and that immortals probably exist in the One Piece world
>Sets up Revolutionaries VS. the Blackbeard Pirates
nah m8 luffy dint want none of that to happen so it all means nothing
Oh, wow, Oda, i didn't know you were here. Please tell us how long you are going to make Zou be. 9 chapters ? Or maybe 12 ?
Seriously though, go fuck yourself
Coby is Helmeppo and Helmeppo is Jango and Fullbody combined.
nah m8 luffy dint mean for Sabo to appear so obviously it never needed to happen cause im yuichi orda and i say how long arcs have to be
how do you figure a fight is supposed to be the longest measure for an event?
65 chapters vs 100 chapters. It's less than 50 episodes in anime yet Dressrosa is still 100 episodes. I remember watching skypiea I was not near as bored as watching dressrosa.
Drossrosa was a lot bigger than other Arcs, yes, but it had a lot bigger Cast, try compress it into 60-70 chapters, there would be stuff lost.
It actualy feels compressed, the Topexecutives and the Kyros Flashback feel rushed
how the fuck do you acsess viz's online reader through computer? I have an app on my phone but I cant figure out how to do it by computer, am I just retarded or is there no way to read without downloading an app?
>there would be stuff lost.
Not a single thing would be lost if you remove Kyros flashbacks and 95% of entire kyros screen time. We know he's been living as a toy and all that, we get it. Not interesting.
You might as well remove Bellamy from the manga as no one would notice it.
Yea, I mean, why bother with side characters at all, am I right ? Fuck, why even bother with other pirates, huh ? Shit, we don't even need the Marines the manga. That's right, fuck every body other than the Strawhats. Let's just take a picture of the Strawhats and paste it on every single page for a 1000 chapters. That would be the greatest thing ever.
I'm waiting for you to say ''Robin is useless since she never fights'' next.
We needed a toy ally (and someone who he relates with, like Rebecca) to better empathize with how awful and tragic Dressrosa is thanks to Sugar's powers.
The only problem is that Kyros ran out of things to do after he turned back into a human (besides beating Diamante).
this bullshit topic has me wondering. COULD you remove anything from Dressrosa and not affect much?
My immediate thought is to remove the Tontattas completely. Have Robin and Usopp solo Trebol and Sugar. Have Zoro just happen to appear where he needs to be
Have Doffy.. sew Laws arm back on in a moment of weakness
i've never watched AoT. I thought you were talking about Zoro vs Pica for a second
>with background stories of every eaten civilian
I do love me some background stories. Weird thing to complain about for One Piece
Or leave Law armless. Worked out for Shanks.
I would say get rid of the Funk Brothers. They were the one thing I just couldn't give a fuck about. I mean, it would only save like 8 pages but still.
Also, the Tontattas helped rebuild everything and kinda even screwed over the Marines when the gang was escaping.
Just don't lose Law's arm if it has no lasting affect, or have him keep in contained in a Room for the duration of the fight, further sidelining him until someone can stitch it back later. Or Robin uses her powers to hold it together
Machivise only existed to get beaten by Hajrudin. I guess you could remove some of the less important gladiators like Sullimen and the Funk Brothers, although he doesn't really take up much screentime.
Thousands of soldiers died as well. Many of them have families. Getting insight on every one of them for 300 episodes would assemble the evil of titans on our hearts a lot better.
>Bellamy did a lot to establish Doffy's character
Is this a joke? Law and Doffy storyline establishes his character already.
They could just quickly find Chopper and...
>Thousands of soldiers died as well.
did they though? Pretty sure only Ace. WB and the dudes Akainu killed died that day
not that anything like that happened in Dressrosa. I'd KILL for Blue Gilly backstory, arc length be damned.
>there are people who would have this removed because it doesn't pertain to the main crew
>implying Norlan D. Montblanc won't be a major character later on
>Is this a joke? Law and Doffy storyline establishes his character already.
Sure, but Bellamy adds more to his character. I think specifically being able to compare how Doffy treats Law and Bellamy says a lot about Doffy, and also argues against people that say Doffy only cares about people that are convenient to him. If that were the case Doffy would've adopted Bellamy into the main family no problem. It's more about their upbringing, background, philosophy, etc. that Doffy has to like.
Not with Kai D. O and Big Mom breathing down your neck.
Why isn't Kohza more popular with the fangirls? He's like a better looking Bellamy and has more panel time than Marco.
It's obvious Hajrudin and the other 2 giant guards from Enies Lobby will play some role in Elbaf, Oda needed some way to show how strong he was, and Machvise was the perfect opportunity.
DO you really believe we need Bellamy to prove Doflamingo is a heartless bastard? Doflamingo's actions when he entered dressrosa just tells what sort of a guy he is. You don't need Bellamy. Trust me.
>and has more panel time than Marco.
but did he fight all three admirals, have a cool flaming bird form and take a hit from Garp like a champ?
The salt in the wound is that Farafra, Kohza's hippo-like henchman, ranked higher than Kohza in the last popularity poll. That made me kek the hardest with that last poll.
Post-TS Tashigi vs pre-TS Smoker
No. I'm saying his character inclusion proved otherwise. I'm saying that how he treated a character like Bellamy showed that Doffy ISNT just some regular heartless bastard. He may have been a psycho with an over-the-top superiority complex but how he treated his family compared others did differ. And UNLIKE what Corazon or Law stated, it wasn't just because his family members were simply "convenient" to him, and his treatment towards Bellamy shows that. Yeah, he's treating Bellamy like an ass and in a heartless way, but being able to compare that with how he treats his family lets us make that distinction, and prove people like you wrong.
And I'm saying Doffy loved his family or whatever in a conventional sense either. But there was clearly a certain connection he felt with these people that caused him not to treat them like complete trash.
>make an offhand comment about Bellamy's food being on the floor
>people still reference it
warms the heart it does
Ok, how about this:
- Have all the SH enter Dressrosa, including an unconscious Caesar
- Exchange takes place on Flower Hill
- After Luffy enters the Colloseum, Sanji notifies the rest of the crew about CP0 and the fake-out
- Caesar wakes up and the family notices he's on the island
- Curlyhats bail with Caesar, Zoro, Mr. Soldier and Kin'emon giving cover
- Sabo fights with Issho for a bit, Revolutionary vs Marines ideals talk, Zoro is tagged in to buy time
- Law is captured by Doffy and CP0 and brought to the castle
- Luffy tags in Sabo
You could also shave some chapters by nerfing Pica's fruit, not making all those mountains to climb and have the Grand Fleet fight on the streets.
Dressrosa should be seen as a saga with four arcs
>Cesar Tradeoff. Ends about when the thousand sunny flees
>operation SOP. Ends around when Sugar is knocked out by Usopp
>Birdcage. Ends with doflamingos defeat
Reading the arc in one go is really enjoyable
>make a bait exchange right in the middle of enemy territory where all family members are likely to be there
The problem with this is that you'd have to be okay with the fact that Law is a dumbass. The reason he chose Green Bit in the first place was to make sure Doffy came by himself.
Again, you're writing as if you're trying to find the fastest way off this island. Where would you add in all the Colosseum members that need panel time and their interactions? If Pica didn't alter the terrain, then there would be no excuse for all the Colosseum guys to not just gang up on Doffy. There would be no way to tell the rest of the story, without having the readers believe everyone else, including Luffy, would just be standing around doing nothing.
Why else would he be named Bully Me?
wanting to hurt someone while also protecting them from bullies is a really dissonant feeling
Bellamy bullying is too erotic. I want to see him get beaten to a pulp but tenderly loved afterwards, he deserves it after the constant abuse.
I miss him. I hope he comes back by means of cover story soon.
he'll probably be at the very end of the "reaction' stories
hoping for an Ace-esque adventure may be hoping for too much but goddamn do I want it
He could be the one to free all of Doffy's executives and lead them on a fruitless mission to save Doffy. So many more opportunities to be bullied too Maybe he'll run into Barto if Barto isnt hanging around Zou's legs waiting for Luffy to come back down
fuck your faggy husbando garbage. Robin is love. Robin is life
>you're writing as if you're trying to find the fastest way off this island
Of course I am, the first anon was asking what could be shaved of Dressrosa.
>then there would be no excuse for all the Colosseum guys to not just gang up on Doffy
That was the whole point of the family.
>would just be standing around doing nothing.
They would be fighting with the other members as usual, but without Pica interfering as much, just make Luffy and Law reach Doffy first and trigger the Birdcage earlier, and share the fights between the underutilized factory, the underground and streets.
>picking the safe, normie waifu
I seriously didn't even know their was a fujo scene for One Piece. Like, I don't even understand how this is a thing for One Piece.
Let's be real, Zoro would've fodderized all of them if it weren't for Pica. Pica gave something for Zoro to do while also setting up 1v1 matches so it's not some free for all. It's usually why Oda separates the strawhats when he needs to give them 1v1 fights.
is there ANY series with more dudes to pair up? It's been arons for almost 20 years, what scene ISNT apart of One Piece nowadays?
They've been shitposting and spamming for years.
Toriko, which is kind of odd.
In Japan, many of Toriko's small fanbase are fujoshi, never look it up on Pixiv for example. In fact, there's alot of pandering to them too, where that one small guy is basically being pursued by a bunch of muscular suitors.
how would the oars fight have gone if chopper went into monster form???
Is he the worst OP character?
I bet Sanji thinks about Gin all the time
Posting the executive defeats again
>mfw he gets that shit-eating smirk after kicking that one guy's ass with Gear 2 in Movie 9
it's not to my taste but I couldn't NOT save that buffass Robin
it's the one thing i'll never have enough of
because nobody makes it
thinny Robin is good to
that, on top of being Kan'on of the North Star
I weep for the wasted potential
2 seconds on google would have kept you real, bruh
Why would you ever put vivi in that list?
Who the hell voted for vivi?
Vivi is the best one piece girl, the only other girl as good as vivi is
Robin is high tier
and all the other girls are just ok
I thought this arc would fuck up one piece r34 but it turns out furfags just do not give a shit. Only 2 images and hopefully it will stay that way like with Dellinger. Good stuff.
fuck you, dont post Sanji when you post bullshit like that
>Only 2 images
I find it and i'm not even looking for it
>Only 2 images and hopefully it will stay that way
>I'm talking about full blown well drawn nude not no pansy ass lewd shit
>can't even get my dick up.
dont think I didnt see that. I see you, m8
Rebecca's more consistently bad, but pic related is probably my least favorite moment in the series.
>yfw Jack and his group is somehow worse.
hardly. There's tons of lewd fan-art of him but that kind of stuff wouldn't even get me banned.
>knock on wood
>salt over shoulder
that picture has been posted countless times
it's hardly even lewd
Probably because the twist of it really being Hody wasn't that surprising, and Hody himself was just a really dull antagonist.
Was it true that Oda altered/shortened the arc because of the tsunami and stuff? I could imagine he wouldn't want to actually draw a tsunami again for a while after that and it seemed like that could have been the direction the arc was going with Noah crashing into the island.
i'd found one where he's with Bellamy
quality was awful though
Scratch that, 3 garbage edits, 2 solo, and 1 of him taking it up the ass but 2/3 of those drawings suck and edits are always terrible. It's a shame that Japan doesn't like Dellinger, he's a cutie. But only femboys/tomgirls that look like flat chested futa will satisfy them.
I dont use paheal. Wow that place is awful
Found another in the archive of the One Piece thread on /y/ of
Delly fucking Gladius
not sure where you want me to post the first one though
Discussion got me doing serious research and shit lol
i need seek help
One thing I'll give Rebecca is that she is hot as fuck (16) but she is just a way worse character than Shirahoshi. Hoshi was a crybaby, sure, but she at least had a good reason since she was sheltered all her life. Rebecca had a hard life too, but a gladiator who did more crying than fighting is pretty inexcusable. What was she planning on doing before she found Viola confronting Doffy? Was she going to try to fight him? that would've redeemed her in my eyes but she didn't even get a chance since Viola beat her to it and Doffy was being a sick fuck.
Also what was Diamante's deal with Rebecca? He really had it out for her, like way too much for no reason.
>I don't go on /y/ often because some of the posters reek of underage
As opposed to most other boards? especially /a/. Most of /y/ is images, /r/ing, and "bump." what gives the underage aspect?
Eh, would be better if Bellamy was drawn closer to on-model (and tan but that's just my preference and not canon). I wish people would put better effort into how they draw the top for both het and gay content.
Thanks though, Dellinger lewds are rare
Why would she need to fight to be a better character? Her whole thing was about her being a pacifist, and an actual regular 16 year old girl that's been through shit. And if people want to protect her and her values then so be it, especially if it's her own father. Pretty sure Oda didn't do it on purpose, but I swear some readers are exactly like the citizens of Dressrosa. They just want to see Rebecca fight and shed blood for their own sick entertainment.
>everyone loves Raizou already
>implying he isn't next nakama
I wasn't saying I like Shirahoshi, infact I hate her, but when you look at both of them I see more of a reason for Shirahoshi being how she is.
Also didn't Rebecca want to protect Solider? Didn't she want to be depended on instead of depending on others? Every time it seemed like she was going to stand up she crumbled.
>defending a shit throwaway female character Oda created so he can feel good about being a father while lusting about something this arc, which is pretty creepy when you think about it
At least Shirahoshi had substance.
>Every time it seemed like she was going to stand up she crumbled.
Because she was weak-willed/minded/whatever. And that's pretty consistent with the fact that she's a 16 year old girl that's been protected her whole life, and was only trained to defend herself. Not to mention the fact that her fighting style in the Colosseum was her ringing fighters out, and every time she broke down it was for a legitimately viable reason. Try losing your memories about your father and suddenly getting them back in one moment, or come to the realization that you might've caused your own mothers death. Not everyone can be a Vivi, and personally I think Rebecca is a much more realistic portrayal of a 15-16 year old girl in that regards. Especially since her upbringing didn't warrant her to build up such strong-wills like Vivi did.
Fuck you Rebecca haters. I will defend my
>I see more of a reason for Shirahoshi being how she is.
Also one last thing. Rebecca was just a regular old cottage girl too until she got taken away and was forced to fight in the Colosseum. Again, people seem to keep thinking she was brought up as some honorable royalty like Vivi. No. And it's not like she ever cried just because Luffy told her he hated her or some shit like cryhoshi. So I don't know why you don't think her actions or mental states were reasonable.
Also in Kyros vs Diamante... was Kyros that ask Rebeca to trust in him.. to not get her hands full of blood, and she trusted her father, that's the reason she didn't figh, and against Viola.. that was the Reason she Cried... she could control herself because DF was doing it
I'm a dummy. I didn't realise Thriller Bark was just floating around the sea. An Island that's moving. Reminds you off a certain elephant, almost. Maybe Oda really was forshadowing giant Elephants. We get the Mink name drop shortly afterwards too.
>yfw it was Usopp that technically caught Caesar Clown, not Luffy
>yfw Usopp is the one that caused the most havoc in Dressrosa, why is why DD gave him such a large bounty
>yfw the one causing havoc in the New World is actually Usopp, not Luffy
>Kaidou is a Sea-King that ate a human human model: Oars fruit
>because of that he has the ability to ignore getting weakened by sea water
