Why didn't Robin tell Luffy that Sabo is alive? Or anything about his father, for that matter?
She spent two whole years with the Revolutionaries after all.
>Why didn't Robin tell Luffy that Sabo is alive?
She didn't know Sabo and Luffy were sake-brothers or that Luffy cared about Sabo in the slightest. Otherwise she probably would have
>Or anything about his father, for that matter?
Robin recognizes Luffy doesn't particularly care about his father or the Revolutionaries, his interest would drop within moments of telling him
When her boobs meet your eye like some cuts of ribeye,
When her cute sharp teeth come out of their sheathes,
I had forgotten this part. It's still possible that A) Sabo didn't let on how close he and Luffy were to Robin and Robin just assumed he was interested in Luffy as Dragon's son, not a brother, or B) as said above, Sabo could have asked her to keep him in the dark
When you swim and the sea and this is what you see,
that's a moray
When she's with me, how happy we'll be
less than seven days until elbaf
even less if you care about spoilers
hang in there, brothers
Franky and Robin may need to change opponents but it's a good predictions.
Also I don't believe Aokiji is a pirate, he may be part of the revolutionary army.
If Kuzan were part of the revolutionary army, Robin would probably know about it.
I doubt Kuzan wants to be a pirate and wants even less to join the Blackbeard pirates. He's probably there to search for a weakness or something.
Did someone tell him to go South?
Frank's dad is the guy mass producing weapons in the New World
the metal being named after beverage is a give away
not like I expect anything to come out from this other than Franky and his dad having a manly fight without bringing up the fact they are related with words.
Looks pretty spot on if we actually get a 1 on 1 setup of fights, though as you said nothing is certain at this point.
It'll be interesting to see how Burgess comes back from his pathetic showing in Dressrosa. I'm really hoping he can provide an interesting fight as I love his wrestler-theme, though it's not immediately obvious how that grappling aspect could work with Sanji, given his relatively long range for a melee fighter and ability to fuck off into the sky. Perhaps it'll focus on that balance of proximity, deterring him from sky walking with his elbow blasts and trying to get in close when he's attacking.
>Features the crew in a fantastical setting having a meal or throwing a party
>Also includes current guest star party members
I fuckin love this shit. The full crew cover spreads are the best.
How many other guests have been in the spreads?
You mean to tell me this man is not the father of Cutty Flam
ODA, WHERE'S MY NIGRESS PUDDING?
I've done some research into Rabbit mythos. Turns out Oda loves Rabbits. He has incorporated many Rabbit mythos. Including the Cree Crane Riding Rabbit. And The wave Rabbits from an island saying.
Carrot is is like culmination of Oda's rabbit interest. Dude clearly like a bunnies.
>>>Sabo didn't let on how close he and Luffy were to Robin and Robin just assumed he was interested in Luffy as Dragon's son, not a brother
>So uh, Robin, right? You're with the StrawHats
>"yes i am, why?"
>So uh, I want to meet Luffy
>"oh, ok good luck"
>Thanks, let's never talk about this ever again
>Not having a cola vs Liquor battle
I'm not a carrotposter or anything, but I do like Carrot and wouldn't mind her as a crew member.
She has a pretty good chemistry with Chopper and especially Luffy. I like how she's very Battle-ready and her Battle-lust seems to rival that of Luffy and Zoro; that is very refreshing for a female protag.
She's also very top tier in fighting (for now) and would be nice to see her on the crew as the only female that pulls her weight in combat.
I don't know; she seems very Straw Hat-y to me. She is just missing a sappy backstory to top it all off.
Jinbe literally just got a reason and incentive to live. If he was gonna die, he would've ended up like Pedro and shaved off years of his life to leave the Mom Pirates. But instead he's not eligible to give up his life.
He's joining, not dying.
we all do (especially the guy about to respond to this saying he doesnt. We all know you do fucker.)
I suppose not, I've just always had trouble with finding furry characters attractive, you know? I keep trying because there's so much high quality furry shit out there.
Like, I've always owned big dogs, and the idea of wanting to bone a dog girl just kind of makes me queasy.
I agree. He's going to die, and thus not a conflict with Carrot joining in his stead. Even if he somehow miraculously survives this arc, I don't see why Carrot can't join alongside him. I think as much as I dislike the idea of Jinbei joining, I'd take him if it's a packaged deal with Carrot.
I hope I don't get BTFO'd by Jinbei living though.
It's not really that I find Jinbei "boring" (I do a bit, to be honest) It's more of the fact that Jinbei has been around for a LONG time doing shit with like 50 different powerful crews (Fisher Tiger, Whitebeard, Big Mom etc). This gives him like so much experience that theoretically it should make the rest of the Journey Easy-mode. He'll know so much that he might as well be Captain and make all the decisions since he knows so damn much.
I don't want Luffy's decision making to be a matter of "Let's do this!" and then have Jinbei be like "No, Luffy-kun. That's a bad idea; we should do it this way since blah blah blah". I also don't like the idea of Jinbei acting like Luffy's caretaker, his "Get out of jail free" card. So much awful things that Jinbei brings to the crew.
Jinbei has lived his life, fulfilled a healthy and sorta-successful career as a Pirate. Guy needs to stop. Just die and take that well-earned rest ffs.
Most of the characters were pretty one dimensional for quite a while, up until they officially joined. They either were directly the focus of that arc in some way, or got more development right afterwards.
I doubt she'll be part of the crew, and will just be yet another Vivi. But not having an immediate arc isn't evidence.
If the crew had exclusively followed their log poses and chose Whiskey Peak as their route, would they have ended up at Alabasta? They didn't care to wait for the log pose to record on Little Garden and instead followed Mr. 3's eternal pose to Alabasta, drifting off course to end up at Drum temporarily.
Then later after they leave Alabasta Robin remarks that the next island should be a fall island, but they wander too close to the Millenium Cumulonimbus and the log pose records Skypiea as the next destination instead of their initial one.
You can't catch furry cooties if you don't have fur
So if Carrot joins, she'll sleep in between Robin and Nami...cute.
>"No Luffy, let's not do this becaus-"
>Luffy has done it twice before he can finish explaining
Do you even read One Piece?
List of characters who want Luffy's fat cock (correct me if I forget anyone)
>ALL of Amazon Lily
>Slip Slip Slut

>I know her name but Alvida is hard type
You gotta go from A all the way to the L on the other side of the keyboard, then down to V, up to I, way over to D, and back to A. You're bouncing off the sides of the damn board.
I feel like Koala might be bi or something, honestly I think a lot of women in the One Piece universe are bi. They have at least some physically attraction to other women, but Koala seemed to show it more. Also I thought Koala might be flat chested, or smaller than most other girls so maybe she just likes big boobs.
>but every Devil Fruit user is an actual fruit
Not even the subject we're talking about, but IIRC that was even before Blackbeard killed Thatch and made off with the dark dark fruit. He fought Shanks at one point and gave him those three scars on his left eye, and Shanks said he was on guard against against BB too.
But the Kidd-Apoo-Hawkins alliance was supposed to be for taking down Shanks, but Kaido crashed the party and beat their asses. Apoo joined Kaido's crew and Kidd got thrown in a jail cell as an example.
The fuck am I gonna do with that?
Only sane way to accept that deal is if Shalulia is my master and my job is to fuck her around all hours of the day.
I don't want to be tortured and fucked around with by some fatass like Charloss, hell i'd kill him the first chance I got.
Robin was the best crew member to go be with Luffy's family because she's probably the only member who cares about him enough to want to know his family, but she is also adult enough not to try and weigh Luffy down with his past that he doesn't even know about, she can keep all his most important secrets for him until he needs to know them
Wano and Raftel are the only ones they have to go to, Elbaf and Vegapunk can both be done through other characters, flashbacks like this one or the primary characters can come to another island...I mean we could very easily meet Vegapunk at any time now when Smoker meets up with him
They accidentally came across the Sea Train, they were lured by a trap into Thriller Bark and Camie guided them to Sabaody when they were actually being pointed to Fishman Island, do you even read the manga?
Because it's managed to stay good while running long. It's had time to build up a dedicated fan base that hasn't yet jumped ship because of a dip in quality. Well, at least in the manga. So the fanbase keeps growing while other equally good manga either end or are unable to keep momentum.
Also, one piece is both really stupid (slap stick, silly faces, low brow humor, cliche anime shit that a 14 year old would call badass) and really smart (insane foreshadowing, realistically handling serious topics like rape/slavery/corrupt governments/child abuse, consistent world building, the duality of morality and how good and evil are not so clear cut) that it attracts both mouth breathers just wanting to have fun and nerds who need to think about things to enjoy them.
You lot are getting more and more desperate with each day. Let's get rid of the Admirals while we're at it, they're older than him.
I had forgotten, that's why I asked. How many years has it been since water 7? I was going to mention long ring land too but I thought they landed there after falling from the sky.
I think only Boa genuinely has shown hunger for the inflatable, expandable, hardening, steam producing rubber dick.
Which is shocking because that's pretty impressive. He'd Red Hawk her whore womb.
How does One Piece work?
Why does it bestow the title of Pirate King to whoever reaches it?
Is shanks trying to get it? If not, what's he doing in the new world?
Do Shanks and Buggy know what One Piece is?
They don't seem to give a shit about it.
But Big Mom apparently wants it because it'll make her Pirate King.
But what does that mean? Will more people flock to her and do her bidding? Will she gain more influence?
What's to stop Kaido from being like "nah" and killing her after she becomes the Pirate King?
I did read it.
I still don't get it.
Man, Amazon Lily has it good.
>Island is in the calm belt, so most ships won't venture out that far
>Pirate crew is towed by venomous snakes that scare off sea kings
>Pirate captain has a fruit power that incapacitates entire ships, letting them plunder and pillage to their hearts' desire
>And even without it she's proficient in all three haki forms
>Island is very close to Sabaody, so the Kuja Pirates can hunt travelers coming from all five Paradise branches
>Because of this sweet setup the government has the captain join the shichibukai, so the marines generally leave them alone too
>And by setting stuff up as an 'accident', they can still raid marine ships too if they want
There is nothing in the manga that answers my questions at all.
I mean we're pretty sure it's got to do with the void century and a big secret that the government is scared of.
But that doesn't explain why whoever finds it is Pirate King.
>Post yfw you realize Oda wrote in the "water shot" technique for fishman karate after playing with water in the shower
So wait, the straw hat ship was just sitting out in the open for 2 years?
And no one ever touched it?
>because the robot was guarding it
Wouldn't the government catch on?
Wouldn't they send someone strong enough to get past Borsalino Bear?
it doesn't make sense at all
We don't know shit about Hasshokuen other than it creates shockwaves. I'd go with rokushiki. Water manipulation is fun but you have to be a master of it to do some crazy shit while anyone that know rokushiki can fly
She would trick his friends into hugging him, then stone them, and he wouldn't be able to escape without breaking them so he'd have to lay there while she has her way with him
I used to keep thoughts like this to myself and not indulge them, what happened
Luffy knows how bad she wants him too. He gets all dashing and calls her by her real name and shit. Luffy is a big time player. He gets all the princesses on his nuts calling them dumb nicknames and shit.
They explained that the bear guy guarded it, but not why the marines didn't fuck it up.
I'll go read it and I bet it won't explain anything.
And they just agreed to it?
I mean surely akainu has personal reasons to destroy it right?
It seems like pirates exist in this show because the navy lets them exist.
Probably more than one reason. She's like a girl who just discovered what sex is. She had her chance pre-TS, now Luffy could defeat her. Also she probably doesn't want to be like the Celestial Dragons.
>Boa with heart eyes jumps onto Luffy
>he gives her a gag-ish punch and she flies away
>"Stop fooling around while i'm eating baka"
Isn't Boa should be like the stronges character in One Piece? She can pretty much mind control anyone with a sexdrive. Even females. Remember Domino? Not the mention she has king's haki and most likely the other two color as well.
Boa/Luffy will be canon by the end.
That vice admiral guy managed to resist it by focussing on pain.
Perhaps if the method of activating haki needs significant enough focus it might just passively resist meromero.
She can still kick you into stone though probably.
I think even they succeeded shooting big mom with those missiles and killing her. I think she won't be killed bcause her fruit works like the Horcruxes Voldemort has. And she gave her souls to homies such as Napoleon. So she won't job lol
what the fuck is wrong with Sanji's neck
Not to mention that the amount needed would probably make it pretty heavy and cumbersome. And you'd have to either restrain her while you put it on or walk around with a large rock on your cock without getting observation haki'd
Just slap it on underneath a codpiece.
Ok, now you're walking up to the strongest woman in the world wearing a codpiece, attempting to pin her down without feeling any lust, take off the codpiece and pants, and rape her without touching any other part of her body. 100% plausible
People's dreams never die!
Nothing is impossible in this world!
Seastone CLOUDS. You know, those things that have so little substance that they can be passed through? Rubber would be nothing.
Plus, it was a joke you cock monger. They already have seastone hand cuffs.
Everybody is hung up on trying to stay unaroused, but that's a sucker's strategy. Time to change the meta.
Someone here has compared it to FI at least twice and another called it filler.
Because for that to be feasible for every sea in the world and then some Kuzan would have to spend all his time making the stuff.
Because seastone adds to the series while one guy (who isn't even a part of the marines any longer) manufacturing ice weaponry of all things for the tens of thousands of marines is retarded.
>instead of just making seawater ice weaponry.
Because icebergs weren't typically the enemy of pirates, the sea was. Ice melts and one of the main marines uses lava. Also: ice breaks. Seastone is harder than diamond and it being unbreakable is the biggest strength of seastone.
Ice melts and isn't particularly strong.
And water doesn't work unless it's actually a body of water. If that was how it worked than anyone with a squirtgun could neutralize a devil fruit.
Not soon enough.
I'm pretty sure Vegapunk engineered a method of synthesizing it. That pyrobloin substance that makes up sea clouds and island clouds is also in seastone, so they probably just mine or make that to make seastone.
what episode is this? Or better yet is there a gif of this?
Having re-read the entire manga again I feel the pirate theme was a bit more heavy-handed at the start.
It's a classic tale, you do something immoral and become cursed by the sea (see: rime of the ancient mariner). Or Poseidon hates your guts (see: Caligula's campaigns).
Being rejected by the sea and seastones is actually one of my favorite parts of the story, it shows that no matter how fucking broken all these fucknuts get they're still pawns of the ocean.
inb4 Whole Cake Island is actually
I can't wait until the end of One Piece that way we can get the third and final hall of anal devastation. It will be even better than Narusaku and Ichiruki because EVERY ship is going to get BTFO.
I'm just glad that we see these backup singers do some more stuff
At least I'm alive. And joining.
marines + shichi =1 yonko +underlings.
that's why the marines tried to prevent shanks and whitebeard from meeting. they can't have two of the yonko team up. the marines were also scared shitless of whitebeard who was just an ill old man
No you nigger, Usopp and Luffy going to Elbaf is a MUST. I will go to Japan and kill Oda if my nigga Usopp doesnt personally go to fucking Elbaf, I dont care about any stupid flashback
Luffy and Usopp promised to go to Elbaf so they will
Which Yonko has
/hadthe strongest commanders?
Ben Beckman, Lucky Roo and Yasopp
Marco, Jozu and Vista
Katakuri, Smoothie and Cracker
King, Queen and Jack
Shillew, Jesus and Sanjuan Wolf
Well, that anon has a point, there's really not enough information to go off of to form an opinion with any degree of support.
That being said, if I had to make a guess I'd likely go for Shanks having the strongest 'commanders' as it'd make sense if he had a small but strong force of really close allies, with a good deal of basic troops at his command to maintain control of his chosen territories. Blackbeard could also work along a similar line of thinking, given he's not had the time to really build up a huge force of troops in comparison to the other Yonko still active.
For me it's a toss up between Caesar and Blackbeard, they're both amazing.
Top 2 rows, odd 2nd number + final number of post starting at 1, 0 is last one. (11,12,13, or 31,32,33 etc)
Bottom two rows same but even (21,22,23 or 41,42,43)
Dubs get both from top and bottom.
What >>157399883 said. Currently (and for actually for years already) the anime goes at the pacing of less than a chapter per epsiode, and generally has low quality (aside of few scenes/episodes here and there. It's mostly unwatchable. The quality at the beginning isn't too good either from what I've seen (though pacing isn't bad). About the manga, well, it depends. What do you actually like about your battle shounen? And, regardless of the answer, you need to keep in mind that people mostly get really hooked up between chapters ~70 and ~150, so it takes some patience.
never understand all the loves about Skypiea, I think it was an OK arc, nothing more, but still better than anything since New World.
My personal favorite is Alabasta and not much people seems to remember it
It's kind of hard because the Japanese VAs do such a good job that I love a lot of the laughs, some that stand out are Moriah, Perona, Burgess and Caesar, but I think Brook's is my favorite, it never fails to get me to laugh or at least smile
Ivankov's HEE-HAW is always good too
Does anyone have a gif of this one walking?
It's mostly about adventure/exploration theme, I think. Though I for one can't enjoy it as much as I'd want to because of this whole death game bullshit, and that's why I also see it as merely OK arc (compared for example to the glorious Jaya that preceded it). And Alabasta is generally well liked, just not the most common pick for a favourite. For me it's the best "standard" arc (I like Sabaody and Impel Down better).
Read the manga and the scenes you really like you go and look for it on the anime. Maybe they will do it justice, but otherwise, just stick to the manga.
I have only a few episodes downloaded here in my PC: episode 1 (this one is actually better than the manga first chapter), 147 (Luffy and Zoro get beaten in Jaya and then someone motivates them) and 485 (Whitebeard final speech)
Everything else isn't worth the time and effort, and even those THREE episodes I have here, they have so much padding in them that sometimes I just skip to the scene that I want to rewatch right away
TL;DR: read the manga senpai, leave the anime to normies
yusuke murata 100%
i bet (kanji reads: hope like hell) the third bb commander will be lafitte
and of the 5 options here, i think shanks has the strongest individual commander out of all of them in benn beckman, but i suspect that in terms of the strength of all three put together kaido probably takes it
I think it might be an interesting instance where both fruits are a natural counter for each other, depending on how their user utilizes their abilities. If I recall Blackbeard's explanation correctly, in his fight with Ace, he can draw people in from a certain range with massive force, but also draws in attacks which leaves him vulnerable to damage.
If so, he would both be able to counter one of the biggest advantages of the Pika Pika, the teleportation, if he was close enough to Kizaru. However, he'd also be heavily susceptible to the devastating, long range light blasts that the fruit can dish out, which would make a fight with Kizaru present a massive risk for Blackbeard if he's not being protected from such beams.
If you could live anywhere in the entire land of Wan Piss, where would you live? You're just a normal citizen, so you have to think of the risks. You can't just fight off things or go anywhere you want.
Personally, I'd either want to live on Hatchan's floating stand and work there, Skypiea, or New Fishman Island. I like seafood and clouds.
Weatheria. I fuckin love meteorology and being on a sky island would be double the fun, as we can drift all over the world to study weird atmospheric phenomena and get paid to bring rain or clear skies.
Yeah, he has a fruit that allows him to manipulate the stone around him.
He himself remains not stone.
Surely there's a fruit that makes you a stone man?
Or a gravel logia or something?
Croc is a sand man, I wonder if it'd work on him...
probably, but he'd be able to resist it anyway.
He'd stab himself or something
So it was Urouge fucking Carrot, nice.
