Whose ready for King Kong gun tonight?
Let's hope Manlet doesn't postpone the episode.
>Nami going to the wedding
>Nami and Purrin will fight over Sanji
>whole cake island will have countless of SanjixNami moments
>you will never do what Sanji did inside Nami's body
Also LuNafags EPIC BTFO
>mfw patiently waiting for all the memes to be posted so actual conversation won't be derailed
>vague, unclear terms
ok, how hungry for (you)s are you today?
Sabo? This is ZEHAHAHAHAHAHA got Epic BTFO year of *The SanjixJack is jobber threw the note you only need 3 sparrow sized next nakama happened this chapter do your best to appreciate I'm strong too, son
I'm not the same person. check the poster count more closely if you doubt.
But Wan piss fags tend to be delusional about the popularity of their franchise outside try hard weebs and jap kids.
>shitposter accusing others of shitposting
>being mad about generals
You the real mvp buddy, cheers
>muh sure anon sure
Isn't he the coolest kid around. That he is.
Please no. We don't need another genociding monster that Oda suddenly retcon into a good guy.
Enough of this bullshit. She's evil. She stays evil. No insulting the reader's intelligence after the horrible things she did.
tssshh. Nothing personnel.
it's from a shitty translation some time ago where someone wrote in the Kaido instead of Kaido.
This guys probably the same guy who did the Lucci bit a while back. Just looking to get his phrase on the pic of philosophers discussing one piece
there was a shitty translation saying the kaido or something at some point, he thinks it's funny, everyone else thinks he should
FUCK OF YOU LITTLE PIECE OF SHIT IT'S NOT EVEN FUNNY
it might stop if people just report and don't reply to him.
>Oda suddenly retcon into a good guy.
Oda's one of the few modern shonen mangaka to have never done that. He emphasizes that they are all pieces of shit for toying with innocent people and actually has characters point out that the villains have no justification for what they do.
I finally got my sparrow sized Monet for domestic ownership
>mfw I made that thread with the shitty translation so I'm basically the origin of that meme
I'm proud as the original SaNafag
The pirates of the colosseum. Currently becoming as soft as puppies and serving luffy even though most of them were ruthless mercenaries at best.
Robin (suddenly she's not sadistic)
Franky (suddenly he's not a brutal sadist)
Bon tranny (suddenly he's not a psychopath working for a psychopath)
I could go on.
Not a buzzword nor some vague definition. It literally means that the One Piece world has been given details and explanations. We already know about lots of islands and cultures in the One Piece world. That is world building.
A lot of people mix up Oda giving sad back stories for the villains as trying to excuse their actions. But Doflamingo has so far been the only bad guy to get a sad flashback, the rest just get monologues about what happened to them like Crocodile and Moriah. And the point of Doflamingo's flashback was to demonize him even more.
I'm not the same guy you replied to, and I usually actively avoid One Piece threads, but are you seriously telling me there were people dumb enough to think Oda was trying to excuse Doffy's actions with his flashback? Genuinely asking here.
Oda's absolutely does not believe in the ends justifying the means, and that humanizing villains should never absolve them of their responsibility for their actions. Fucking Kishimoto thinks redemption comes so easy.
More like a forced alliance between criminals escaping from a prison reputed being inescapable, and he never turned good.
Althought she seemed that at first, she pretended to be on Crocodile's side
Only towards enemies, which Luffy and co were at their first meeting
Same thing fas Franky
They are really grateful to Luffy for saving their lives.
>not the one liners and meme spam that adds nothing to the discussion and sharing
Comparing manga to books was literally never the topic at hand. Someone asked what world building was and how One Piece was doing it, and then that person was explained where it happened in One Piece.
If you want to talk about books doing it better than manga then maybe start a new thread?
>visuals and high impact words
which the best arcs of one piece have in spades. the manga is practically defined by high impact spreads + speeches
world building just means lore. One Piece has the best lore, unironically.
Oh look its the "hurrr why don't you read a book then" buzzphrase
>>not the one liners and meme spam that adds nothing to the discussion and sharing
That is what I was referring to, /a/non. No need to force a reason to argue about whatever your perception of my post was.
>Why don't you read a book then?
Is this nigger serious?
You will never see him do evil deeds.
Yeah 7 fucking innocent kids were his enemies.
Yeah right. And he goes on to brutally beat a poor guy and rob him of millions.
Fuck that guy.
''seemed sadistic''. Like when she took pleasure in ripping pell's body apart when crocodile wasn't even watching. Or willingly follow someone who was destroying an entire kingdom.
He followed a fucking psychopath as a mercenary. Go eat shit if you try to twist this around. He was trying to kill Sanji, because the ''enemy'' wanted to save thousands of people.
The pirate alliance :
And suddenly they don't act like the ruthless criminals that they were, and you probably won't ever see them do anything sadistic, ever again.
Suddenly he's not an asshole working for a genociding cunt
And of course I forgot LAW. The surgeon of death now being the surgeon puppy.
Because Oda is biased like that. He won't show you these guys ever doing what they did in the past. Because now they're good guys and that wouldn't look good for his kid's manga.
The "world building" is the only thing that anybody here or even normalfags know how to use as a defense.
The series is almost 19 years old, of course there are going to be a lot of details about the world.
With that amount of time it's pathetic to be using it as an argument.
Not only that, but it is completely subjective as to if it's even good or not.
"Yeah just read all of the chapters, the author really uses all 820 of them to build an amazing world!"
>crocodile decides to help luffy because he hates the government means he's changed over to a upstanding pirate
Just because you save someone doesn't mean he's becoming a marine anon
>pirates decide to follow under the person who's mostly likely to be PK and their saviors means they've changed over to soft puppies
What proof of this do you have? Have you somehow seen chapters that show them not acting the same? We seen barto literally put a knife in a guy tongue for badmouthing luffy,and he been on team luffy side. there are countless of ruthless pirates out there will to join the strawhats.
As far as I've seen she still be snapping people necks. And I don't think she's ever been sadistic, that would be Sadi of impel down you're thinking about
Yeah he may not as brutal but now he's hard boiled so it's cool
>Bon clay a psychopath
Once again I think you're using the wrong words. He has never been shown to be a psychopath and from the very jump since he was introduced one of him gimmicks was his deep love and beliefs in friendship. I don't how evil you want a person like that to be.
I think you should just calm down as you've been reading to deep into it.
Why does everyone think they are going so they can save Sanji?
Sanji doesn't need saving,he is not going to be executed..
The reason Luffy,brook,chopper and Nami are going is to convince Sanji to come back to them.
The one that needs saving is the guy who will be the next nakama.
>You will never see him do evil deeds.
Instigating a whole civil war, intending to blow up a city, planning to take over a kingdom are considered evil deeds
But I'm sure you are just shitposting there.
You will never see him do evil deeds. No more. Understand that? He did in the past but now he doesn't.
Ready to bet he will never be shown as a bad guy ever again?
You know what's shitposting? Meme spewing faggots who don't even expect discussion.
>The "world building" is the only thing that anybody here or even normalfags know how to use as a defense.
Nice projecting there buddy
>The series is almost 19 years old, of course there are going to be a lot of details about the world.
Length or age have nothing to do with it.
>With that amount of time it's pathetic to be using it as an argument.
It is pretty stupid if you actually think that the amount of time is a deciding factor when it comes to how good or bad world building is.
>Not only that, but it is completely subjective as to if it's even good or not.
Yeah, so what is your problem again?
>"Yeah just read all of the chapters, the author really uses all 820 of them to build an amazing world!"
What are you even trying to say here? Is this supposed to be an argument that reinforces your statements? Sorry, it is not.
>never see crocodile do anything evil again
Well of course, I bet by the next time he's shown it will be in a situation to help luffy. What reason would oda have to reuse him as a main villain for in the new world anyway?
>7 kids was his enemy and he brutally beat a guy and rob him for millions
Ok of course that would say bad but how about he beat up a pirate that came into his house trying to take back millions he probably stole from others anyway? You're acting like franky knew them personally or something. in his eyes theyre not just a bunch of kids but notorious pirates with a captain who's bounty is over 100 million and caring around what 300 million beris. Since they're pirates you can pretty much think they didn't get it legally. Now show me where it said he just beat up on random innocent civilians?
>Robin working under a guy who's trying to take over a country
Ok she willing to so what she can to survive, You've seen what she's been through did you not? And it's not like she was going to help him complete his real goal. She just wanted to accomplish hers then book the fuck out, what did you expect her to try and be a hero or something. You seen how crocodile tried to kill her once she said it was nothing on the poneglyph.
>Bon tried to kill his enemy
You do realize that shouldn't be argued. No shit he would try to kill sanji he was getting in the way of what mr.0 had plan. He was just following orders.
Just because you follow a cruel captain doesn't mean you are. Him and the other nigga wanted to help Fishman island out too,that's why they convinced big mom to take the money. I bet bobbin or whatever his name is would of just burned the place down
>law surgeons of puppy
What do you want him to just go around killing innocent civilians? I can see if you said kid someone who has been shown to be a ruthless motherfucker. But law outside of rumors has never been shown to be brutal except to pirates. Which he still is
>mr.0 had plan. He was just following orders.
Yeah I mean. Totally not responsible for following willingly an evil asshole who wants to ruin an entire country.
>But law outside of rumors
Where do these rumors come from? Up until he joined the alliance he was shown being ruthless and willing to kill those he didnt like.
Luffy isn't being called the strawhat of death. You get those nicknames when you're a murdering psycho.
>Just because you follow a cruel captain doesn't mean you are.
Yeah, that means you are. She's not holding zou hostage.
Sanji/Nami? Nah. Obviously with Marco returning...
Nami's real love is locked away though.
>tfw tonight's OP ep just looks like another QUALITY-filled mess
>tfw shit-tier animated King Kong Gun confirmed
Because Nami's the girl that female fans self-insert into, that is when they aren't just shipping the guys together. Law/Nami for instance is pretty big on Tumblr.
OH SHIT oda is here with all the chapters of the series, but each one costs 100 bucks
how many do you buy?
Sadly, this is one of the few fappable art of loli Nami.
why is zou so fucking top tier arc?
>Infos about Kaidou
>Infos about Roger
>Infos about Raftel
>Infos about Wano
>Infos about Big Mom
>Capone and Pekoms
>Best scenes of Robin
>Best character Nekomamushi
>Brook/Chopper/Nami getting some screentime
>Now fucking Marco gets involved
Well, it's part of the reason, anyway
The biggest reason why I'm never going to drop the anime is because I'm already 700 episodes deep into that shit, and even by the time I started reading the manga I had already watched like 400
No way I can quit something that I've invested this much time in
Damnn. how may weird ships are out there? Do people just ship for the fuck of it?
Everyone with a brain understand this will be canon
Then there is SaNa which of course it's understandable because this ship will actually become canon. And they have a shit ton of moments together
Lady swordman,simple as that
Again doesn't even need an explanation
But what kind of shit is that? I didn't know people shipped people for no reason.
He is included in Robin's best scenes
>Do people just ship for the fuck of it?
>I didn't know people shipped people for no reason.
>shipped people for no reason
Yes. That's literally what shipping is, you retards in this thread are the only ones who don't seem to understand it.
It's SUPPOSED to be just wishful thinking. Someone somewhere like 2 characters a lot and goes "shit dude, I want these two to get together". That's the whole reasoning. It doesn't HAVE to be canon.
Here's the fucking definitions of an OTP (another fucking term for a ship)
>your favorite combination of characters in a fandom.
>Characters that a person thinks work well together.
>Used in fandoms to espress what charaters you ship. (put together romanticly)
>Used in slash to describe a perfect couple
>A term you use to express a pair of people that are the perfect partner for each other. Gender doesn't matter.
>used to describe a relationship in fiction texts
>You get those nicknames when you're a murdering psycho
>Thinking nicknames and rumors mean anything
'God' Ussop must be really divine, and Luffy is a 10 feet tall giant.
Minus the power difference, what if the feud between neko/inu was exactly like shanks/buggy on rogers ship?
>Luffy needed help from a whole island and a Shichibukai with a life long plan to beat Doflamingo
>Doflamingo was too much of a pussy to fight Aokiji
>Aokiji ot wrecked by Akainu
>Akainu was butt raped by White Beard
How the fuck is Luffy going to beat a yonkou? He was clearly weaker than Doflamingo, so thats something like four levels below Big Mom and Kaido
People would be screaming bullshit times a billion if Luffy had steamrolled Doflamingo. You know this.
Plus there's also the theories that Kaidou isn't that strong offensively but simply has god tier defense.
>Doflamingo was too much of a pussy to fight Aokiji
When will this meme stop? Are you going to pick a fight with someone around your strenght when you've got much more important shit to deal with?
Ice and magma are actually quite evenly matched.
The intense smouldering heat and the solid subzero temperature generates a constant layer of steam between the 2 which acts as a barrier.
Actually, Kuzan's pheasant beak should've gone through ace's fire mirror due to being a solid and fire not being hot enough to melt that mass of ice in time.
Hands Up opening really did do the coolest cover arts justice, though. I would love filler based on building Lego forts and riding sky trains and shit but I can settle for what was in the opening.
Read the manga. It was hyped for several panels before it happened. Toei will stretch that hype for the entire episode and only deliver next week. It wasn't in the preview either.
Today, I will...
No, you know what? You guys remember it enough, this is getting repetitive. My friend got his drawing, other people have long since stopped spreading misrepresentation, most of you get it now. So... I'm satisfied. See you around.
I want to massage Dellinger's smooth boi legs.
Well ,as I thought, They Caesar'd the King Kong Gun.
Instead of quick knock out they extended it to a struggle-->the dressrosa citizens cheer him on--> then finally the knock out blow.
any fights you want to see and/or any emotional scenes you want to tfw
Honestly, the anime is great until the end of Thriller Bark. A lot of twats will say the quality went down way before but it is not that noticeable at all until the Timeskip. Imepl Down was pretty great too. Marineford was arguable.
Skip all fillers except G8 arc, which comes right after Skypiea. You can watch them later, if you want. Only the pre-TS ones though.
Oda's action scenes are really stiff, but the anime somehow conveys even less dynamic action and with much worse art. On the other hand his handling of emotional scenes is stellar and the Corazon flashback was a lot better in the manga.
If you get that feeling then just re-read the manga. I honestly think the pre-TS anime is pretty damn wonderful for the most part. The voice actors put so much emotion in their work. Ace'sdeath scene still hits me hard because of Luffy's voice and the music. It's intense.
Character development. Pic related clearly shows his grudge against Whitebeard, but after realising the war was pirates vs marines in the end he sided with them to save Luffy. Luffy earned his respect in that war from a tsundere. Crocodile realised he didn't lose to "just some kid who came out of no where", he realises he lost to a pirate with a lot of potential and seeing Luffy die would let that go to waste.
It's likely Crocodile will be at the wedding due to his mafia theme and I won't be surprised if he helps Luffy fight Big Moms top dudes.
>The pirates of the colosseum. Currently becoming as soft as puppies and serving luffy even though most of them were ruthless mercenaries at best.
It's comments like this that make me absolutely despise speed readers. Try re-reading the chapter where Luffy argues with them about who will stop Doflamingo, they all stated their reasons. Eg family, honor, pride, money etc
>Robin (suddenly she's not sadistic)
She was never sadistic, just playful with her enemies but lets them live out of curiousity.
>Franky (suddenly he's not a brutal sadist)
Never was, he was just a gangster to protect Water 7.
>Bon tranny (suddenly he's not a psychopath working for a psychopath)
Okay I think you're just spouting buzzwords at this point.
>>Akainu was butt raped by White Beard
Akainu didn't get buttraped he came back fine. The anime made it look like he had a fearful face but the manga shows him staying strong and punching back blowinf off half of Whitebeards head.
Also when you consider Odas statement saying Akainu could find One Piece in a year, that means he could go through Big Mom and Kaido's road poneglyph too. He's strong as fuck.
There were plenty of QUALITY moments in the anime even way before Thriller Bark.
Toei is the master of QUALITY. It's existed since the start, but they're pretty cruel to their animators. Imagine being called at midnight and told you have 5 hours to finish a new scene. Toei is also really jewish, its easier to streeeeetch shit as opposed to making new filler arcs, and they can't go ahead of Oda.
Buggy makes this face when fighting Doffy
>lifts up her dress
>spins around a couple of times
>runs her hands over her body
>this lasts for about twenty seconds
>now drenched in sweat and out of breath
And the world record for pro-dancer with the least amount of stamina goes to...
The Wano arc's going to be a massive clusterfuck
>The Heart Pirates
>Kinnemon & Momo's allies
>The Whitebeard remnants
>The Beast Pirates
>The Shogun's supporters
>Probably another surprise faction
All in the same arc. Get ready for Dressrosa 2.0
Why does croc make cigars branded for his secret organization?
>King Kong Gun getting tanked by Doflamingo
>King Kong Gun getting pushed back by Mingo
I can't believe Toei fucked this up so bad, I was looking forward to this episode for months.
Hey you know Sanji Nami Brook and Chopper haven't been in the show forever. Do their Voice Actors still get payed?
Toei's idea of epic finale always involves a tug of war style final attack. Honestly, it was done better this time than against Ceaser, whom Luffy really shouldn't have broken a sweat against. The real problem was the inconsistent drawing and animation in this episode. They literally only used about 5 minutes of decent animation interspersed with mediocre stuff or reused assets.
I think Toei did this pretty well, It was the OST that was wrong. They should have used an actual 17th century symphony
Also Doffyfags got BTFO bad tonight. Remember when they would constantly shit up the thread before king kong gun in the manga? They would constantly post about how it would be impossible for Luffy to defeat Doflamingo and how Doflamingo would get away without a scratch on him. They'd have about 800 arguments about how this was a case but every argument was completely delusional.
Anyone got a WebM yet?
Fucking this I'm pissed off.
I didn't have any expectations of Toei to do it right but they did even more damage. Now we are going to get anime only fags thinking Luffy is weaker than he actually he is because this same shit happened with Hody and Caesar, dragged on the final confrontation with a 'struggle' and the villain pushing back when that didn't happen at all in the manga.
Fan fiction tier crap. REEEEEEEEEEEE
>Luffy's first major opponent in the Grand Line is Crocodile, who has his own secret network to do his bidding
>Is BTFO'd from the ground up by Luffy, symbolizing Luffy's start of his rise to the top
>Luffy's first major opponent in the New World is Doflamingo, who also has his own secret network to do his bidding
>Is BTFO'd from the sky down, a mirror image of his first beginnings as a legitimate threat to the world.
Oda sure loves his pottery.
Just finisbed the episode, and I feel very mixed about it.
They made Doffy look like a straight up video game boss with the Holy Bullets or whatever they called it.
They did the Caesar bullshit and made Luffy struggle with the finisher instead of it OPing the shit out of Doffy. But it felt okay since you can argue Luffy is weak ass shit and only needed an energy boost to get through the strings.
The impact was my biggest problem. They needed a SLAMM sound effect when Doffy got his ass grounded instead of that "anime whiz shit" or have both even.
All in all, after 2 years and 3 months *in the anime* it's finally over, and it was pretty damn worth it imo.
>Luffy vs Crocodile
>Luffy vs Doflamingo
>Recycled transformation animation
>Same Soundtrack we here all the time
REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE FUCK YOU TOEI REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Holy SHIT that was awful.
Why in the fuck would they give the final attack in the longest fucking arc in the entire series such a terrible budget? Didnt the sai fight have better animation than this?
Why did I expect any better from toei.
>that reaused gear 4 animatiob
>mingo tanking the king kong gun
This has to be one of the worst episodes so far quality related.
Oh god that fucking quality was terrible.
That punch was so fucking disgusting. They butchered it so bad. I was expecting something at least like Kong Gun where he was pushed back nearly instantly but no the fist started struggling against the strings like a fucking kamehameha battle. I sat threw all the dog shit pacing to get a great big middle finger from Toei.
Brook has some nasty crowd control abilities, remember how he was toying around with those fishman in fishman island.
It was definitely under average. The pacing was probably the worst In a while.
WHY THE FUCKING IS TOEI MAKKING LUFFY LEGS WORK AS FUCKING JETS/TURBINES????
The one who say yes to this episode should be shot immediately
Jesus fucking Christ
They even reused the transformation they had one extra week and said yes to this shit the most important part of fucking dressrosa, fucking sai got better animation
>knowing the anime went to shit
>still watching the anime
>complaining about the anime being shit knowing it was going to be shit
I think it's time for you guys to change your tampons and go to sleep.
>I think it's time for you guys to change your tampons and go to sleep.
we knew it was going to be shit but it still makes us better to complain about it, just like it makes you feel good about yourself to act like a big man here on fucking 4chan anime forums you virgin faggot.
>Dressrosa makes up about 7% of total episodes for the anime so far
>Almost 8% for the entire arc in the manga
I don't really watch the anime but I would've thought 100+ episodes on one arc would have comprised a much bigger fraction.
Pierot did it again with the shitty quality..
KING KONG PUUUUUUNCH
This episode it should have been called still image and 3 seconds of animation
i know this is bait but this is just so retarded in so many different ways:
- you have no idea of knowing what angle the connection between the two points is at
- for all you know the 2 nodes you have could be on opposite ends of the same line
What are you talking about?
Dressrosa: 105+ episodes
Whole anime: 733+
Dressrosa anime makes up: 105/733(x100)= 14.3%
Dressrosa manga: 102 chapters
Whole manga: 820+
Dressrosa manga makes up: 102/820(x100) = 12.24%
I got pain flashbacks in this episode like fuck toei and Pierrot for spending more money on cash grab movies and not in one of the most important scenes on the series
Now I am more interested to know the percentage amounts of dressrosa in the anime with all filler episodes and flashback episodes taken out of the equation so it contains the same material as the manga.
It's not about spending money, it's about their random rotation of directors. That's why the Sai vs Lao G episode had oddly decent animation compared to others.
The reality is that Toei rush their workers like slaves to pull out episodes. They just need to take a long break and return when the manga has enough chapters to go back to a 3 chapter episode ratio.
Doflamingo is falling like every bit of hope I still had for toei to don't fuck this up
damn I'm a rubberhead...
have a Jack
>mfw Jack is going to be butchered by Toei
>not even One piece thread memes can save him
>they picked the wrong OST
literally Toei hates one piece. They slap a bunch of shit together and call it an episode because they can't arse themselves to animate for it. They only care about the new DB super series
>They only care about the new DB super series
You clearly have not been watching it then.
The most damage Toei has done was to Toriko, it has a great manga and they butchered it all to hell, even having the nerve of re-writing an arc and doing the equivalent of keeping Ace and Whitebeard alive.
they are shaped like mammoth tusks. I assume he uses them by attacking and when his blade connects with another, the shape allows it to slide around the enemy's so he can get a shot it. He can also deliver an attack by rotating his wrist inwards. Then again, he might just be a brute force guy.
We'll just have to wait until Episode of Law to get the fight with good animation
>Hahaha I lowkey wants to see that
C'mon man. Don't tell me you don't dream of another Jet Gatling or Storm. Or at least go back to the midly bad times of the Elephant Gatling.
It really angers me because the VAs are perfect and the soundtrack (hile used badly) is great too.
see >>138851763, we'll probably get one.
Did you watch Ep. of Sabo? It adapted the first half, so that is basically alredy done. You know Toei will want to milk Law's Cora flashback and putting it in between the fight with Doffy is a good idea
In retrospect, did Crocodile job to Luffy? He didn't have Haki or gears and he still beat a shichibukai.
reminder that this is the best opening
>that episode where the singers self insert into the opening
As if the horrible song wasn't enough
>implying that the strawhat We Are isn't the worst
>Not this one
Would you a kitty mink?
>Hating on Kaze wo Sagashite
Oh, is it cool to like it now? My bad.
That Make it Better contest way back when had this Bump of Chicken entry that I can't remember the title of, escapes me for years.
>implying you wouldn't fuck the shit out of Wanda while you violently pull on her tail
>Gee Lois, That's like that time me and my pirate crew saved Dressrosa
Toei should fucking redo the final bit, those fucking snakes if I saw the person responsible for this I....I....
they will fucking pay!
Why are you guys surprised of this shit? It's fucking Toei. You should have learn by now to not keep your expectations high for quality budget animation from them.
Man, I can't wait until we get to see Wano animated by Toei
We never find out when Croc was recruited. If he had 80 million out of the gate for having a great devil fruit he may have never seen the new world or learned haki. Crocodile was an arrogant ass who sat around killing east blue shitters. Luffy got lucky finding his weakness and tore him a new one.
