One Piece is all about the older generation passing the torch to the younger generation, or else just passing on pointlessly while the younger generation step into their place. The strawhat Luffy wears is a constant reminder of that. So is the repeated idea of "Inherited Will". Luffy is basically trying to do what Roger already did. To Decode the poneglyphs is to read a message from your ancestors.

The cast can basically be divided into the old guard and the newer generation. Whitebeard, Rayleigh and Sengoku as opposed to Ace, Zoro and Coby. Frequently the older ones pass things onto the younger ones. Consider Nami and her love of oranges because of Bellemere, Sanji being mentored as a chef by Zeff, Chopper and Hiruruk, Robin and her mother being archaeologists, Franky and Tom, etc.

Jinbe is firmly in the old generation. He's doesn't belong in the SHs. He's a passer-onner, not a receiver. He's Whitebeard, not Blackbeard, Shanks not Luffy, Zeff not Sanji, Bellemere not Nami. Someone will join in his stead, perhaps someone he's already passed something onto in some form or another. Maybe another practicioner of Fishman Karate

>>
>>151575884
Franky inherited Tom's will. He's the follow on from Tom.

Brook's old, true, and he doesn't fit so well (and maybe this links to why he's been the least impressive, least used, least developed SH so far) but he is carrying on the promise of an entire crew to return to Laboon.

It's not really about age per se, more about waves of action and then people looking up to or being inspired by that. The classic opening is how Roger inspired a generation of pirates.

Jinbe is carrying on the will of Fisher Tiger and Otohime. The unification of Fishmen and Humans wasn't his dream until long after they died for it.

Hmmm... Really makes you think...

Face it, Sanji is irrelevant when Brook exists
>>
>>151576156
I can see that. The thing is, someone like Koala does that much better because she's the more regular age range for the current generation and she herself is a unification of Fishman and Human in the sense of her fighting style and history.

Just a theory, but she seems like a better fit in a bunch of ways AND is another female (to get the quota to 7:3 rather than 8:2) and links Luffy to Sabo and Dragon better.

The thing is, it's incredibly likely that Jinbe has had a bunch of years removed from his life. It's also probable that Luffy will when he faces BM. So either Jinbe is close to death anyway or he REALLY will be when he has to pass life into Luffy as we saw happen in Pedro's flashback.

There's also no real reason for the pledge to be a SH that he made unless he fails to fulfil it. It works then but otherwise it was just pointless from a dramatic point of view. He could've just joined there and then if Oda wanted him to but he delayed it and had this shit happen before it went anywhere - and by "shit" I mean going against someone known to remove years from peoples' lives and then turning openly on her as well.
>>
>>151576384
Koala is fun but she's not a "better fit" for the crew at all. She's just another nice girl, there's nothing special about her outside of a cute little reference.

Jinbe being different from the rest of the crew is a plus, Brook and Franky and Robin and Chopper were all very different from the rest of the cast when they arrived. And several of them joined in weird ways, at weird times! Him delaying by dealing with Big Mom's responsibilities doesn't mean he's about to die, it just means he's an old man who took a lot of pushing to do something for himself.

Jinbe is basically very serious and would sit there medidating a lot. He'd be another Zoro without even the "I hate Sanji" wrinkle. FIghting-wise he'd be the same as Koala. With the latter it's more about how she connects Luffy to his dad and brother. She's also friends with Robin already. I said this earlier elsewhere but I could also imagine future twists with her actually being a spy for Dragon to keep an eye on Luffy but she comes around (of course) to being truly loyal to Luffy. Future Jinbe events aren't really forthcoming. He'd just sit there silently and then punch things when fighting starts.

Honestly, I wouldn't put money on her becoming a SH either but it seems more fertile ground and also more fitting than Jinbe who has a very "better do the right thing before I die" aura around him right now.
>>
>>151576699
>Jinbe is basically very serious and would sit there medidating a lot.
We've already seen that while Jinbe is a mature adult, he's really very silly. He's a doddling grandpa who takes strange things seriously and doesn't think to take very tense situations as serious as he should. He's prideful and stubborn and he's Koala's connections to Sabo and Dragon aren't any more interesting than Robin's, she's an incredibly shallow character (but that's fine because she's very tertiary.)

Are we reading the same manga? That's not Jimbei at all. He's almost 100% stone face. The exception being fawning over Luffy's cock.

It pains me even more that he's definitely going to be a crew member.

So how are you enjoying this arc in comparison to the last one? Meaning Dressrosa, not Zou.

Personally I had to force myself to read chapters during Dressrosa, and even the later parts that were supposed to be exciting, were a mes to read, only exception being the Cora flashback. I'm having a much better time reading this arc.

No this is exactly what someone who could reverse time or alter memories would do

Okay, this is gonna take a bit of autistic dissection.

First off, none of us are focusing on what ISN'T explained.

Brook likes Tea and Takoyaki, not milk. And while it's hard to see, you can see a ball of something near the tail of the fish. If he didn't forget Brook, I'd say that's the Takoyaki... BUT I wouldn't be sure, since the spiky pattern has me thinking of some vegetable accompaniment. But it's definitely seafood. Why? Placement.

The Bento is dividing by types of dish, meats in one box, pasta in another, sandwiches (burgers are sandwiches, let's not get picky on that, I know one of you faggots would) and seafood in another. And it's clearly divided, you can see the rims of the box.

So the way I see it, there's room for at least TWO crewmates. Whoever likes the Port. And whoever likes the dark stuff. And I'd say maybe three, since I don't think that stuff is rice. While it would be funny to imagine he didn't make anything for Zoro because it's Zoro and why would Sanji do anything for him, there's what looks like a Narutomaki (circled in green), which is a cured fish product, and the other meat could be sea monster meat, and the left is more iconically Luffy's. So I'd say it's more likely some other dish.
>>
>>151581331
>no reason
the reason is that either
a. Reiju saw/heard Pudding doing something related to eliminating the vinsmokes
and/or
b. Pudding gets off on this sort of thing and kidnapped Reiju because she knows Judge won't notice if she's gone for a couple hours

Dressrosa just dragged. it wasn't by no means bad but it being that long wasn't necessary. I did like Don's family and the fights that went with it tho. it's probably a better read in one sitting then waiting week by week.

It really triggers my autism that people do not know the difference between dragging and just being long. Dressrosa was the latter. It was long because it had tons of characters and subplots going on. Dragging something out means to fill the gaps between something happening with air/filler. Like Son Goku and Frieza looking at each other and panting for 30 seconds or longer every 5 minutes. Dressrosa did not have that. Every chapter at least covered a bit of a subplot or was more about a certain character. If you cared about this subplot or character is a different story but stuff was happening and the plot advanced. It was NOT dragged.

No, Alabasta was long, because it involved actual travel and getting to know the country and its citizens' misery.

Dressrosa felt like a Drag because it just put way to many characters in the table and Oda had to dedicate a small amouny of time to all of them, forcing him to make a slower progress per chapter.

>>151581973
I don't get this whining about the Tontattas. Is it because that fat fuck forneverworld kept whining about them? There was a SINGLE chapter that was all about them. I did not like them very much in particular either but it is not like their presence ruined anything for me. And I cared at least about Sai, Barto and Cavendish. The rest also never got more than half a chapter of focus. This was enough for them not being completely blank at least. It was necessary for Oda to give them at least some backstory or purpose, otherwise we would be surrounded by blank characters when that epic thing happens Oda already announced that involves all of them.
>>
>>151582108
Well it's fitting

>>151581885
It's the same fucking shit you autistic faggot. Just cause Oda decided to Cover everyone's backstory dont mean it was not dragged out and couldn't be wrapped up sooner. also to clarify being dragged =/= bad. I already said it'd be better as a single sitting then waiting weeks on end for it to end.

She is actually superb at drawing, but because they are in the mirror world the direction the eyebrows are flowing will be in reverse, hence the mirrors will mistake it for one of Sanji's brothers.

Dressrosa was really that bad. It was long and bad, and therefore a drag. The only good thing about Dressrosa was Rosinante.
>>
>>151582379
Nami of course
>>
>>151575229

Koala is the only younger generation I can think of that is a practitioner of fishman karate. She also has history with figher tiger and the sun pirates. She also has a tragic past, on par (or worse) than every single straw hat.

I can't really think of anyone else that would fit your description but her. All of the fishmen introduced were fodder or non-fighters (like keimi or pappug). It still doesn't make sense for her to join, unless the revolutionary army is destroyed, and she reveals a dream to travel the world or something. Plus she looks too much like pre-TS nami.
>>
>>151581008
Didn't like Dressrosa, love this arc so far.

Personally my biggest issue with Dressrosa is that I had no emotional investment in it. Usually in One Piece I give a fuck about what happens to the characters, but I couldn't bring myself to care about Rebecca, the Tontattas, Sabo, even Law and his tragic backstory left me cold. Glad that mess is over.

Imo It felt 'dragged' because of the flashback, Maybe the arc needed to be long. But flashback didn't need to be 3+ chapters (Kryos / Dressrosa flashback, not Law's) we know oda can make solid short flashbacks like on this arc or the one with Lucy Ann (which was actually added without a real reason, unlike the Baby 5 one).
Or the entire chapters dedicated to people crying, or focused on Mansherry or Rebeca.
I did like Dressrosa, and the arc itself wasn't 'dragged' but it didn't need to be that long.

Dressrosa was a bottleneck of information and exposition. All of the ground work of the new world was laid out from FI - DR. Look how fast Zou was and how fast WCI is moving. Not mention all of Oda's hints and cues that he's tired and ready to stop. This story is snowballing towards the finish

>>
>>151582840
Yeah, my point was that it is not dragged. It just had subplots and characters that some readers were not interested in and thus felt bored until they got chapters that focused on things they cared about. Read in bulk Dressrosa does not feel that frustrating though since you can breeze past Tontatta and Rebecca chapters without having to wait a week or 2 with a sour taste in your mouth.

What's wrong with Trebol? He's the creepy uncle of the bunch and "mentor" of Doffy.

>>151582630
The handled their characters differently.

Dressrosa:
>Majority of the focus was on Law, the Gladiators, and the Rikus.
>Rebecca in particular is probably the worst side charater in the series
>Usopp was handled well overall, but still had that terrible scene where he ran from Trebol and Sugar. Only excusable because his redemption moment was so good
>Franky and Usopp pull their wieght, but their personalities were at their most bland
>Robin does nothing besides funny reaction faces

WCI:
>Most of the focus is on the Strawhats
>Brook is giving his best performance since Thriller Bark, potentially even better
>Sanji, while not flawless, works really well as the "heart" of the arc
>Nami puts in more work then usual (even if too much of it is offscreened) and has her personality pretty much intact
>Only Chopper is sort of weak, since Carrot is stealing most of his coolness potential.

The series has gone on so long that every one of them has had a 10/10 scene and a 1/10 scene.

>>151583152
Yes. But the thing I replied to had to do with the straw hat crew, not other characters. Dressrosa was shit because it had so much focus on random people that weren't strawhats.

Another thing that drags Dressrosa down is that everything happens at the same time.

You got the tournament happening at the same time as the factory search and the hostage exchange and it makes resolution seven slower than they already had to be. and then it instantly jumps into the main conflict.

The whole sequence of events should have been spread through at least a couple of days more.

I think you still don't understand the importance of Robin existence being erased by Sugar. At this point in time he was alone against Trebol and Sugar. With only the tontattas present. He had no chance of winning. I don't understand where do you get that Usopp was "past this point". It's simply not true, him coming back was a huge step up.

All of the Yonkou are/were incredible badasses. Shanks we've seen the most of despite not ever having a serious scuffle. Kaidou being somebody that can't die as well as forcing some of the Supernovas into subservience implies he's dangerous. Big Mom is the midst of showing why she's a Yonkou. Whitebeard was the rival of Roger and went out like a badass at Marinford.

All that's left is Teach.

I could see him being coerced into helping the ???? faction overthrow Big Mama, if such a thing is even in the works. Maybe he'll help poison the food served at the wedding.

Teach is the one guy who focused hard on making an overpowered build. He spent DECADES pumping his STR/HP into ungodly levels while working at getting the perfect Gravity/Quake combo.

It's clear Oda has undergone a massive pacing restructuring since the conclusion of Dressrosa. The pacing of arcs since then have been comparatively breakneck. By all accounts, taking down Kaido is gonna take even less time than Doffy, it feels like.

That's just backwater native superstition. My personal head-cannon is that the 'D Kingdom' is responsible for both the Ancient Weapons and Devil Fruits, which is why the 20 Kingdoms allied up to take them out.

I also think the fact the sea 'rejects' DF users is important, could be implying that the fruits are in some way otherworldly and being rejected by the planet.

Dressrosa had tons of shit going on though. WCI so far not even half as much. Wano on the other hand could get even longer than Dressrosa. I can't even count how many characters and whole factions will play a role in this arc.

There are tons of people who disagree though. He is the most popular character right after Luffy
>>
>>151584362
It's not a meme. In the very least it was sort of implied that he might be stronger than Don Krieg as an actual fighter, and had the compassion Krieg didn't, so I could see him breaking away from them. Even if it were something as simple as letting Sanji know that Zeff was okay or something like that, it'd be interesting.

Or maybe I'm just a fanfic faggot.

Yeah but it feels like Oda is cutting shit that he would normally spend time on. Totland is massive and Big Mom's family and crew is even larger than the amount of characters introduced in the colosseum, but you don't see Oda wasting time on Galette, Amande, Mont d'Or, Opera, etc. like he did with the colosseum characters
>>
>>151584368
I unironically like Law as a character and think his powers and backstory are really interesting. I just think he got too much screentime in dressrosa for someone who isn't going to become a crew member.

I feel like I'm going to enjoy Big Mom's crew more than Kaido's. The Alice in Wonderland/food/numbered sons and daughters theme is more interesting than Kaido's card games crew scheme.
>>
>>151584488
That's because they're villains. The coliseum fighters eventually became allies when shit got real, so it makes sense that they'd have some backstory.
>>
>>151584501
He is their first major ally that is actually fighting alongside them though.
>>
>>151584488
>but you don't see Oda wasting time on Galette, Amande, Mont d'Or, Opera, etc. like he did with the colosseum characters
The difference is that the colosseum fighters are characters who will still play an important role later and thus had to be proberly introduced. This is not the case with BMs daughters
>>
>>151584134
The D.evil
>>
>>151584582
I can see the reasoning, and like I said, I do like Law, it's just that I always felt there should be a distinction between 'allies' like the Samurai or Gan Fall or Vivi and the core crew members. If Law's not gonna pledge allegiance to the straw, then he should take a secondary role.

But, that's just my opinion. Oda's written it another way entirely and I don't think it's necessarily detracted from the experience.

Big Mom (at least in the current arc) is the only one we're not 100% sure will go down right now. We know Kaidou will go down at Wano, and we know Blackbeard will go down at the end of the series. We can't say the same about Big Mom.

The anime wasted it by not having the actors playing each character doing their best impression of the people they're possessed by and going through the dumb route of having voices swap.

I wanted to hear Chopper's VA boisterously acting like Franky, and Nami's acting like Sanji, and so on. Not just Chopper with Franky's voice.
>>
>>151584821
they did it because kids are dumb
>>
>>151584368
Law is still my favourite supernova. It bothers me a bit though that Oda made him a D and gave him the "ultimate" devil fruit. This smells like pandering to the kids who want their favourite character have the most awsomest powers and stuff. But I am willing to accept it if Oda manages to write something good on that basis later
>>
>>151584821
The Anime has been a waste since the end of Enies Lobby, Merry's death can be seen as the 'end' of good pacing/animation.

Thriller Bark and Sabody were pretty good. I really liked the way the anime handled the confrontation between Rayleigh and Kizaru. I can definitely agree that they're phoning it in post-TS, though. The Franky vs. Senor Pink fight was just fucking shameful.

We still have some set up before the wedding can start.

Sanji has to go back to his room and feel like crap.
Carrot and Chopper have to find Sanji and learn the truth about Pudding and spread the word via mirrors to the other Vinsmokes.
Big Mom has to do something about Brook.
Pedro has to be dealt with and we have to see how Eggman will pull himself together again.
We have to see the direct aftermath of how the Memo Memo Fruit affects someone with Reiju.
Jinbei has to deal with Luffy and Nami.
We'll probably see Pekoms before the wedding as well.


Wedding won't be until February at the earliest.

Why do people want to destroy Sanjis character with having him hitting a woman? It would make his bond with Zeff look weak and meaningless.

Zoro's was essentially covered in his flashback with Kuina.
>>
>>151587473
You mean like how Sanji's was explained with his flashback on the Baratie?
>>
>>151587500
nice, i can't name that logical fallacy but you can say that about literally any character we haven't seen grown up since birth m8

So what fruit will spawn from Nami's Tangerine Tree on the Sunny /a/?

This theory is still not dead?

>>151587410
Nami's origins haven't been explored yet

>>151587574
It's a long, slow burn use of a mechanic that's very important in the OP world.

What happened to Robins father? He was not even mentioned ONCE in her flashback

There are a lot of things left to cover. Here's a few off of the top of my head. A lot of these are probably going to be combined.

>Wano (kaidou, shogun, weevil, marco)
>Vs Shanks (We are in the Vs FOUR emperors saga. I have no doubt it will include all four and unlike most I do believe Luffy will fight shanks when they meet. He can't be pirate king if he can't even beat his idol, right?)
>Vs Blackbeard (See above. This will probably be a small clash between crews. They will meet again at the end for the real final battle. At raftel maybe.)
>Reverie arc
>Revolutionary arc
>Reaching the end of the grandline (Remember nekomamushi/inurashi said they should carry on with their journey and follow the log post. This might be where we get void century info dump.)
>Finding the last road poneglyph
>Fight against the world government at some point (They might be the ones who have the last road glyph)
>Elbaf arc
>Vegapunk arc and learning the truth about the devil fruits
>The scramble for robin by various parties once all the road glyphs have been found
>Race to Raftel
>Final fight against blackbeard
>Final war after one piece has been found
>Backtrack to fishman island to destroy it
>Go back to the start of the grand line for Laboon

I'm sure I'm forgetting many other subplots.

He gets the groupie pussy.

>Backtrack to fishman island to destroy it
Am I missing something? People keep saying the Island is still going to get physically destroyed, but I always thought Sharlay's prophecy meant that Luffy was going to metaphorically destroy it (or more specifically, it's deep rooted prejudice), which he essentially did after he beat Hody. You know, revolutionizing it and such.
>>
>>151587690
At least we're getting Reverie and Wano next year.

>year of DRAGON and ZORO

>>151587848
how does fishman island burning fit in metaphorically
>>
>>151586769
You'll be dissapointed
>>
>>151586932
Luffy was shot by Z and didn't bothered to dodge because he thought It would be harmless, It could be something similar.
>>
>>151586932
Puddin is still a high ranking member of a yonko's crew so its not that fucking ridiculous
>>
>>151587954
yeah but luffy is a retard and not a mutated super human
>>
>>151587053
Gladius, Señor Pink, Lao G and Vergo were the only capable members of the Doffy family.
>>
>>151587848
Destroying FI would cause all four seas to intercept creating the all blue. That's where the idea comes from because everyone took what Sharlay said literally. That he would destroy the island.
>>
>>151587989
Same logic applies. If you go through your entire life believing that bullets can't harm you, why would you dodge one?
It's like when logia users get fucked for the first time.
>>
>>151587980
so is lola and look what happened to her
>>
>>151587989
Both of them have bodies immune to regular gunfire though. Reiju's shot in the leg would be completely unexpected for her, and getting shot there fucks you up immensely.

There won't be room for Zoro with the amount of characters that will flood Wano arc.

Are we going to get Nami vs Pudding?
