Damn, I already made a better version with more memes but now I gotta wait until next thread.
> said don't worry he'll be back
>sanji doesn't need to be worried about since he's the most capable of the crew
Now if that was true then what need would luffy have to go after him? That's almost a contradiction.
how can you believe when someone tells you not to worry yet don't believe him on that he will be back. And pekom just told luffy and nami how dire the situation is and I'm sure they told the rest of the crew. Outside of zoro everyone else should show a little more concern. In the timespan of telling luffy what happened they've partied, fucked around with a giant cat, fucked around with a ninja, listened to a story, schemed about how to get money out of people, flirted with a fucking mink deer,flirted with momo, bragged about how they won't let anyone ever take Robin and what they would do if they tried(how ironic), and now are about to take on jack crew. Like how much shit will they do before luffy leave?
Hei guys, I need long term anime once in a while, i suffer from depression and it makes the pain go away and time fly.
I watched so much One Piece but trying to skip filler arcs drove me mad. I stopped at the gang's escape from the castle prison.
Naruto, same things with fillers. Not sure if it ended?? Stopped at the time Sasuke gets help trading eyes.
Please help a good guy out.
>nami cried him a river
Who hasn't she cried for yet. And in that timespan she has flirted with momo to get his dad money, tried to scheme the minks out of their money, and talked about how she would rob anyone who tries to take Robin away. Thus showing she cares more for Robin and money
Hello speed D.reader this is the 10000000th time, its cuz if sanji marries big mom's daughter strawhats are her UNDERLINGS automatically Luffy hates it.
Sanji saying don't worry doesn't matter he is clearly not thinking properly after something was whispered in his ears this is clearly BLACKMAIL, he isn't going voluntarily.
Shoo shoo go away.
Hey guys look someone notice me look SaNafag is still around. hey guys are guys you there? Someone reply to me . Hey guys I'm too much of a pussy that's why I have to ask for you guys to notice me.
Spee D Reader
Again not true. When Pekoms told luffy and Nami that if Sanji got married he would leave the crew, luffy said "Sanji would never accept that then" showing Sanji leaving the crew is worst that being big moms underling.. Hell he even said that himself when they were riding the crocodile!
Its still a blackmail, back at water 7 would you say if sanji nami didn't egg luffy that robin had something going on then luffy would have also not cared about her.
Luffy is an idiot he keeps saying contradictory things always , did you read what he said this chapter he wants sanji back because he likes him as nakama to fight kaido so its done.
>sengoku praising luffy's future wife
Pretty sure she is stronger than Zoro. She is probably strong as Doflamingo or stronger
Fixed Morgan. I don't include animals, only opponents.
Just a reminder. The only challenges Zoro has had have been Daz Bones and Kaku.
He's going to have his work cut out for him with Jack, but I think he'll come out of the fight much stronger.
Tied up to a post and was nearly starving to death
Wounded and lost a lot of blood
Disadvantaged with only one sword and it was a 2v1
Wounded and wounds opened up
One of the few fights he was in top condition, had to overcome his limits to win
"Perfect time to try out my new technique"
"Perfect time to perfect my new technique"
Another one of his fights where he was in top condition, but he had to first hold off Kaku and Jyabura while handcuffed to Usopp before he could take him out
In top condition, but slightly disadvantaged with only two swords. Straight up sword fight while on equal grounds
Piss easy, was even disadvantaged from being underwater while the opponent was a fishman
Piss easy, didn't even need to use haki
Piss easy, was running nearly the whole time
Zoro needs a challenge like Daz Bones or Ryuma again
why is no one cut in half in one piece? they receive attacks that can cut a mountain in half but they just bleed also i think that Hyouzou(drunk octopus that was mentioned since arlong arc) was such a let down
1. Where did I ever say anything about her liking or not liking him romantically? Please stop speed reading and assuming because you will only make a ass of your self
2. >nami and sanji would soon be canon
So you basically was trying to prove a ship! Ok SANAfag you can't even be taken serious
> speed D. reader
>still thinks the strawhat crew will be underlings to big mom
You can't call someone a Spee D. Reader yet speed read your self anon.
>sanji isn't thinking straight
I'm sure he's thinking the most clearly out of the group. Luffy and nami literally just heard what will happen if they don't marry and I have yet to hear of a plan how they will protect all those people.
Plus Robin was also blackmail was she not? And we can clearly see the difference between how they both are treated
Your lucky i'm in a spoonfeeding mood.
Batoto was good but it got nuked so try these:
Batoto (coloured version)
Powermanga (scans that were hosted on Batoto but now only has the latest 100 ro so chapters)
Worst comes to worst just pay Viz and read the official translations
They may have a small skirmish but ultimately I see them becoming allies for multiple reasons:
a) They saved Lola who is likely Big Moms daughter and have her vivre card to prove it.
b) Pekoms is going to witness the Strawhats fighting the Beast pirates and can advocate for them.
c) Sanji may do something like be an amazing chef or tell her the truth of the Vinsmokes to gain her as an ally.
However this all depends if the Treasure Box with explosions inside it reaches her, which it likely will since it's a huge chekhovs gun, so she's going to be pretty pissed.
Regardless I still see her allying with the Strawhats due to pic related.
>if the Treasure Box with explosions inside it reaches her, which it likely will since it's a huge chekhovs gun, so she's going to be pretty pissed.
Oh shit, I totally forgot about that
The funny thing is now it will insult her more considering she sends the heads of people's loved ones or families in a box mafia style.
The dude in Capones crew probably told Sanji that Zeff will be killed if he doesn't comply.
Let's say that there are three more slots open in the Strawhat crew.
Assuming Jinbei finally joins and takes one spot, what kind of character would you like to see take the other two?
I'd like for them to have a logia user and another girl.
I think it would be hilarious if Cesar remained their prisoner for the rest of the manga, basically becoming a strawhat and reluctantly helping them in exchange for their protection.
Now that they're going after The Kaido, it's time for Moria to show up again and help them out.
My guess is that he's going to give Luffy a Nightmare version of Gear 4th mode and that will be enough to win.
I would actually love to see Caesar join the straw hats. He's as powerful or better than everyone except luffy. As far as a girl, it seems as if Jewlery Bonney hasn't been brought up in awhile. I really thought her character had potential.
So basically he's not weak as fuck?
Also beyond fighting
>probably better inventor of weapons than ussop
>has connections and knowledge of/in the new world
>is an interesting character
>Luffy marrying her
I know /a/ loves their cakes, but why would Luffy ever marry her?
She's not his type at all.
God dammit, you're right. Forgive me.
Please listen to this, A Cyborg Traveller's heart.
Having a good Devil Fruit doesn't make you strong. Knowing how to use it effectively makes you strong. Caesar could just actively drain oxygen from his surroundings to wreck people but he doesn't. Law could rule the world, but he still loses. It's like saying Enel and Kizaru are invincible because of their fruits. Complete bullshit.
Usopp brings out his sexual drive, he's interested in women, but won't care without him around.
That will put the entire straw hat crew below Nekomamushi or Inuarashi. That jobber isn't capable of such feat. He'll probably end up cut to pieces by Law once beaten up by a straw hat crew combo attack.
>Caesar could just actively drain oxygen from his surroundings to wreck people but he doesn't.
except that he did, twice and then luffy found a way to deal with it
Oda added the Stamina draining aspect of Laws fruit so it would be overpowered
sometimes i forget that i have the same age as luffy
i wonder how all the one piece characters would act in a high school or college setting
Exactly. Meaning, just because you have a strong fruit doesn't mean you are automatically strong. Caesar won with the element of surprise. But that could be done with a ton of other fruits. Shit, even Zoro can just launch attacks from a mile away and Caesar will just get hit.
Don't get me wrong, he's obviously smart and uses his fruit better than others but "He's as powerful or better than everyone except luffy" that sentence is plain stupid.
You know damn well why he put Asura there twice
Cause he only used twice in the manga?
I doubt Jack is worth even a 1.5 Mingo,Doffy has proven himself to be stronger than Jozu who was WB's second strongest.
Even if Jack is stronger than Jozu the difference shouldn't be that big.
>Jozu was able to hold his own againt Kuzan
>Doflaming made Jozu into his little bitch and sat on him like a chair
The only admiral who could even hope to beat Doffy is Akainu while Jack got his shit wrecked by Fujitora the weakest admiral and b Sengoku who had been inactive for over a decade and isn't even admiral level now.
>"After taking a direct hit from Jack this Elephant isn't going to last more than five minutes."
They used him as a sling when escaping Enies lobby and he does a similar thing whenever fighting against cannons, The fight with the Yeti cool brothers made it seem like a new ability Oda made then lost interest in
He beat the villain from Movie 2 by being a slingshot
i just want to reply to this post because everyone is doing it
sorry i can't kill myself
bacause im already dead Yohohohoho!
depending on how Bonney's fruit works, she could have one of the strongest crews around. As long as she had the ability to instantly cancel any changes in her victim's ages without needing close distance or contact, she could bargain with a lot of old but famous pirates like whitebeard and don chinjao, Youth in exchange for joining her crew.
I dunno, I get the feeling that her abilities might have some sort of limit that forces their deactivation in her victims, like something range-based or something, otherwise she'd be OP as fuck since she could just turn anyone who challenged her into babies or octogenarians permanently and no one would get in her way. She wouldn't really have been captured by Teach or anyone for that same matter if her powers worked like that.
Nami was crying and bitching to do something about Sanji before when she knew almost nothing about it. And now after finding out he belongs to a evil army and if he gets married he will leave the crew. They should all be more worried because now they know he might leave for sure. But they are not. Oda got everything backwards
>reading berserk for kids
Sanji would have a blast in the Berserk world.
Spee D Reader?
Luffy said Sanji leaving the crew is worst that being big moms underling. how fast were you reading? Pekoms said they won't become big moms underling because once Sanji gets married he would leave the crew.
Slow down kizaru you are going to fast
I hope we get to see Nekomamushi kick some more ass, he's hilarious.
I suppose their cut off limbs have probably decayed by now, but with Law and Franky here, I wonder if both of them will get cyborg limbs or something?
Which strawhats do you think will reach admiral tier? WIll it be a joint effort, meaning that they will beat them together? Or do you think the monster trio, Luffy, Zoro and Franky, will get to admiral tier power levels?
>he's strong argument
Ok and what can that strength do for him against a yonko and a supposedly strong assassin family?
You can only use that argument if sanji actually had a way to protect his self. If luffy believed so much in sanji strength he wouldn't have to go get him his self.
>A group of giants
>A bunch of ragtag miscreants and a decent fleet
>A race of warrior minks
>Trafalgar "For D Plot" Law
How respectable is the Straw Hat Alliance by now?
Law's going to be in cahoots with Luffy for years at this rate, and out of the Grand Fleet at least they have some significant names among the fodder.
I-If t-the c-cook i-is n-not o-on t-the m-monster t-trio t-then I-I'm n-not i-in i-it t-too!
Reminder Shanks is canonically confirmed as the only character so far to have an "advanced" mastery of Conqueror's Haki, even compared to Rayleigh whose mastery is said to be "medium" tier.
Those who believe Shanks isn't the current strongest character are delusional. A case could be made for Dragon.
>I doubt Shanks is Kaidou-tier even.
He got Kaidou to fuck right off as he was planning to attack Whitebeard at Marineford. Kaidou doesn't really seem like the reasonable type either, yet Shanks arrived to Marineford unharmed.
Why would you say that? We just don't about Shanks' fleet because we haven't seen it. Whitebeard only had 1 ship when he was introduced. It wasn't until the war that they revealed he had fleets and Islands.
>Why would you say that?
Because Shanks showed up at the war with just one ship, I guess. We only ever saw Roger with one ship so it wouldn't be out of the question if Shanks had just the Red Force, too.
I'm sure in time I'll be proven wrong.
That doesn't prove your point.
We actually don't know shit about Shanks really. We just know his CoC is off the charts (an aspect that has been insisted on), that he's strong or convincing enough to stop Kaido in his tracks, and that even after losing an arm, nobody fucks with him. His crew stopped a war despite the Marine's most powerful forces (the three Admirals, Sengoku and Garp) being relatively unharmed, not to mention the strongest Shichibukai didn't have a scratch either (although Mihawk left when Shanks arrived).
What are you talking about?
>Haoshoku haki has three levels (examples used are before time-skip): primary - Ace & Luffy (subconsciously); middle - Rayleigh (volitionally); advanced - Shanks (continuously).
It's pretty clear
Does this mean Shanks passively fucks up mooks without even trying? Wouldn't that be inconvenient if he has to consciously stop himself from knocking people out?
I guess it also explains why Coby collapsed in pic related.
I want to marry Robin and become a house-husband!
No, he just whitelists stuff. Everything is blacklisted by default. It doesn't matter anyway, since his calculation power (or his choker's) are high enough to let him do it easily.
Reminder that right after learning about Luffy's bounty, he threw another party. He obviously used his haki to make the hangover go away, or he wasn't that hungover to begin with.
Right now he's not the focus of the story, the Strawhats already have to deal with two of the Yonko, and the third one (Blackbeard) will probably be in the spotlight when he fights my man Dragon. I don't think we'll be seeing Shanks soon.
Really? I don't know, it's ambiguous
>as if I'd want to settle things with a man with only one arm
>as if I'd want to settle things
So Mihawk either lost their duel or it ended in a draw. Probably the latter.
>If Mihawk had lost, there'd be nothing to settle, he'd have been beaten. It was obviously a draw.
Right. So is Mihawk confirmed strong enough to be a Yonko?
>who is going to leave Little Garden alive
Nobody, they'll continue their duels until they die of old age
No, it's about having connections, information, power, men, fleets, influence, territory AND fighting prowess. If you're a strong dude, you're just a strong dude. It wouldn't make you a Yonko.
so the yonko status is a powerlevel. sure it encompasses more than just strength but it is still used to indicate one's power and influence.
Retards think if someone fights Mihawk they won't use their devil fruits, and everything they can to win.
THIS SHOW IS NOT ABOUT SWORDSMANS.
Shanks would rekt Mihawk. Mihawk is a better swordsman but that doesn't mean he will win. Shanks might have stronger haki. Which obviously he does.
Has anyone ever asked Oda or has Oda ever commented on Pirate or Ninja sentai shows?
so what does shanks incorporate kicks into his fights? he can't exactly swing a sword and punch. Or does it really just come down to Shanks haki > Mihawk's so he can't get cut or something?
That doesn't even make sense. You think Shanks never fucking used Haki when fighting Mihawk? They both obviously did. Just because that's the level they are at. What it boils down to is faster reactions and harder swings. Having better Haki doesn't mean you fucking Insta-win. I'm not saying Mihawk is stronger than Shanks or vice versa. I agree with what you said about DFs but the Haki bit makes no sense.
>Hawk-eyes, I've been swinging this sword for 1.5 years, I feel like I'm not really growing
>Hold on a minute there Roronoa, let me remember what the fuck Red-Hair was doing while picking his nose
It would be confirmed if you're a fucking retard. That same scenario would have been the same if Zoro said "Only if your skin is tougher than my sword". CoA literally makes 0 difference in a melee battle that's not against Logias.
Why? We don't know the outcome of their duels. Mihawk is known as the WGS now but we know that he refuses to fight Shanks after East Blue. Shanks verh well might be just as capable as Mihawk even now. We have no way knowing.
No fuckboi, again Mihawk is the strongest SWORDSMAN. But remember that one piece is not a show about swords, people have devil fruits,haki.
I'm not saying Mihawk is not strong but it ridiculous that the fanboys think he is yonko level. Forgetting what I just said about one piece and devil fruits/haki.
I'm still wondering if Kaidou or Big Mom will be the first to go down.
I think that it should be Big Mom, she seems much weaker as a person, especially because of Kaidou being the strongest creature in the world. Her strength seems to lie on her connections and mafia like abilities.
But the story seems to be pointing to Kaidou at the time, even though Big Mom was set up before, in Fishman Island. I think that this means that Kaidou won't be defeated in Wano, and Big Mom will be defeated first, but not in the Tea Party.
im rubber youre glue
whatever you say bounces off of me
and sticks back to you
We do not know enough about Shanks' fighting style to make a claim about how similar a duel with Mihawk is to how he'd fight normally.
The duels were also years ago before Shanks lost an arm. We do not know what has changed between then and now and if Shanks was at Yonkou level prior to the incident.
Im absolutely sure mihawk can stand toe toe with anyone on the series he is the strongest swordsman so you think a master of a feat like his can equal the strongest people as long as he has a sword. Shit i bet his hand to hand is not bad either. He has the power to be a yonko but he does not have the influence he is the type of guy who does not want to rule anything. He just wants a challenge.
>Shanks verh well might be just as capable as Mihawk even now.
I think Shanks is just as good as a swordsman and probably has another skill related to CoC that gives him an edge.
Mihawk has the Yoru though
AP/Gaia need to fuck off.
And good job destroying your own argument. None of that indicates he wants nothing but to fight. And don't give me the war excuse, otherwise by that logic Whitebeard wanted to do nothing by wage war as well.
What's Kinemon's power level? So far it seems like it's been hidden, except for Kinemon easily went toe to toe with Doflamingo, only being BTFO by a sucker punch because he got scared/concerned when Zoro got gravity pressed by Fujitora.
Will Kinemon's duel with Zoro just be a joke fight or will it really put Zoro to the test?
>literally said to be ruthless and impossible to reason with by doffy and the samurai
>literally stated his goal is to start a war (WB wanted a family, not war, kiddo)
Just off yourself, all right buddy?
I wana take the kids, and follow her on her archaeology adventures though.. I'll watch them while she works to support us.. she cant wear heals though..
Thing is, im not attracted to tall bitches irl at all
>being tough to reason with means he wants to fight
>don't know his reason for war yet (whitebeard wanted/willing to go to war for a reason, which was for Ace)
You keep blasting your own arguments. I accept your concession.
And like I said, leave this place already.
There are no power levels in One Piece but there are levels of power alright, there's a difference. Here we go
>I keep hearing shit
>The power to destroy the world
Big Tits Poseidon and sea kings
Those poison eel things from Amazon Lily that sea kings are scared of
>Confirmed to beat the shit out of sea kings
>Not confirmed but can probably beat the shit out of sea kings

>Garp wears a mask and follows the Strawhats around to protect Luffy
I've noticed that a lot of posters would be willing to go to great lengths to even be within the range of her scent
I am that faggot, as i'm sure you know. And just because i think sanji and nami is retarded, doesn't mean i don't think luffy and nami is retarded, because i do. They're both incredibly stupid, fuck nami&luffy, fuck sanji&nami, fuck all you cum guzzling, faggot shippers, and the dumb, worthless, whore mothers that birthed, and raised you cunts.
ok. hmmm, let's see here.
According to my sources, Sanji and Nami are confirmed to be in a developing relationship, Monet is alive and is coming back into the story, and a ninja is joining the crew.
However, my sources are not always to be trusted
What about this one
Not that different though. I'm talking about those abilities that are clearly similar to others but have to be just a bit different so that it's not repeated, basically Oda revisiting an old ability of a minor character.
I just save it for Robin I don't even care about the ship
I like it when Robin to drawn to look somewhat like Robin
Everyone is best with Franky though
>tfw you're getting plowed by Cola man with no lights on when all of a sudden he turns on his nipples
My treasure is yours, mistress.
Is that a crop? Sauce?
Google is only giving more feet.
Why is Nico Robin's wanted poster "Dead or Alive" if she is the only person that can read poneglyphs?
If the WG could decipher them then Spandam wouldn't have needed her.
It's not like setting her bounty to "Alive only" is a big deal, they've already done it for Sanji.
Also, it would be cool if each road poneglyph led to 1 of the blues (N/E/S/W). Then Luffy have really sailed the entire world and we would get to revisit some character's homes.
If they get her dead, then she's no longer any trouble and the Void Century along with its secrets will be safely lost. If they get her alive, it means they can find ancient weapons.
not the anon you are arguing but are you just baiting?
Kaido's underling strongly suggests that Law wasn't lying when he said Kaido can't be reasoned with. His underling brutally tortured the people of Zou, then attacked Fujitora, Sengoku, and Tsuru all at once, and is currently going to try and kill Zunisha.
Kaido and the emperor of Wano killed Momonosuke's mother to try and force his father to reveal the secret of Raftel, and then killed Momo's father.
You're delusional if you believe Shanks had a friendly chat with Kaido and Kaido said "ok cool yeah I'll stay away no prob bro i'm okay with not getting my way."
At best, and this is a huge stretch, Shanks used CoC and cowed Kaido because he's weak against it. Other than that they pretty much must have fought.
Your position that Kaido is some kind of tea party participant with Shanks is retarded.
>Look at how he ruined nami and robin
That is some very hot opinion m8
We're just messing, anon. You do have to wonder though. Is there really non criminals out there that could cash in bounties of the high ranking Yonko mates and Revolutionaries? Seems crazy.
who says you can't collect bounties if you have a bounty yourself?
How would you even cash it in? The government would be cooperating with a pirate too.
That line either means that Shanks had no bounty yet or he meant that being a wanted man no one would care that he got done in.
>It's not like setting her bounty to "Alive only" is a big deal, they've already done it for Sanji.
But that's a huge deal. A HUGE deal.
The WG also wanted to kill off everyone that can read the poneglyphs, which is why they Buster Called Ohara and why Robin was going to be executed at Enies Lobby.
stupid hyper-sexualization is not something that supports an argument contradictory to mine. robin went from this...
>posting pictures from the freaking anime
are you fucking serious?
Not that guy, and I don't disagree with you about Oda's designs for Nami and Robin pre-skip vs post, but you should realise that using Toei's art as supporting examples is fucking stupid.
At the time those arcs started, except for maybe Marineford, I don't think many people thought they'd lose. Especially in Water 7 as the antagonists are introduced just at the end as a set up for Enies Lobby, where it was clear they'd win.
there's a page with Luffy and Pekoms that this exact point is brought up.
He really just want to make sure the strawhats dont end up under big mom's flag, that means Sanji too, he doesnt care about the rest.
Maybe in his point of view this is a mattet that captains should deal with.
Robin looks fucking great post-ts, you have to be a total fucking faggot to think otherwise
I know you all have a low IQ/no artistic taste whatsoever, but the pics I posted are still representative of the basic design change. In my opinion, luffy, robin, nami, chopper and frankie all got worse from the early-mid years until now. That is to say nothing of the general style change.
Luffy hasn't shown that he's at the level where he can fight a Yonkou. Losing and having time to train, learn new abilities and strategize would make the win much more deserved and logical. Especially if he's the next big fight Luffy'll have, this guy is the strongest creature in the world. Luffy beating him would put him on the top tiers of fighters in the world.
I also think that Luffy should lose at least one big fight in the New World. And who better for it than Kaidou? There's not even a need for a timeskip, as both Kaidou arcs don't necessarily have to be one after the other.
I always figured he was a pirate. Why else would he join the Shichibukai? If he was just a bounty hunter then the Marines wouldn't bother him. A Warlord has to pay x% of their treasures or something to the Marines, right? So, Mihawk definitely is a criminal of some sort. He has to be, given his position.
She wasn't going to be executed at Enies Lobby, she was to be sent to Impel Down, and put on death row. She was probably going to stay there until they use her to unlock whatever weapons they wanted, then she'd be executed.
As strong as whatever worthless argument people want to start over it
He's only been shown beating up thugs at the beginning when the series was very young and the relative power of characters were low and then holding a gun to Kizaru after the Red Hair pirates were officially a big deal.
There's nothing to go yet except that he's strong enough to be one of a Yonko's top crewmates.
This is really stupid reasoning. There's no benefit to Luffy getting stomped other than to artificially lengthen the story. He's already trained with the very best and he's already strong as fuck.
In Water 7 they didn't even fight. They waited for Robin's response. Since she "confirmed" she left them, they let defeat themselves. Only after Nami explained why Robin decided she leave the crew atrated they take the whole thing serious.
well, i don't think so. I think wano will be too big for that, the hype is already there, no need for more in my opinion. He might lose the first round the same way it was vs crocodile, but he'll win on wano.
It's funny because Luffy brought out new body altering techniques to deal with Lucci after their brief encounter
It's unlikely that Luffy will have another Gear since 4 was shown to be overwhelmingly powerful but heavy on the side effects. All of his Gears involve using his body and 4 covers the last major component which is muscle.
He already has the tools this time around, he just needs to utilize them more and lessen the bad side effects.
He is very strong now, clearly. But he still had to 2v1 Doffy along with the entire Colosseum fighters' help just to beat him. Kaidou is on a whole different level, and the strongest creature alive. There's barely anything beyond that, so if he's going to beat him it should be nearing the end of the manga. I seriously believe that Kaidou getting defeated in one arc would be rushing it.
He's barely a simple madman.
The Jack is the true ABSOLUTE madman
