"Raizou-Dono Is Safe!"
Sanji's 2nd Backstory
Momonosuke's declaration/desire to take down Kaido
>Stopped watching just as the timeskip happened and everyone reunited.
>Tried to keep up with the anime but the snail's pace killed it for me.
>Keep telling myself I'll read the manga instead.
>Never read the manga.
I'll get to it. Maybe.
I got ~300 chapters in and that moment came in. I continued reading because I kept hearing good things about it but the show is just boring characters doing the same old boring shit on new islands. I thought I was getting another HxH but I was tricked. Oh well.
>Chopper monster point
>Sanji diable jambe
>Luffy beating Lucci
The tl;dr on why enies lobby is the best arc hands down.
zoro and luffy get thrash by bellamy at the bar(I watch since the beginning with 4kids,but one piece was just someone I watch to pass time because nothing else was on,but when it got switch to cartoon network and funimation dub,I didn't understand why everything suddenly got so dark,I couldn't tell the difference back then since I was probably 8,after the show got cancelled back in 2006,I decided to go watch it online,watch luffy vs enel in portuguese sub,couldn't find water 7 and majority of enemies lobby,watch luffy vs lucci in german sub,I didn't understand a single thing)
>Fisher Tiger's backstory
Fishman Island is one of the three best arcs in its entirety. Everyone who shittalks it hasn't read through it at least a few times. Only then can you really understand what the whole point of it is.
Also Oda did a good job of making the New Fishman Pirates dangerous while at the same time making them less experienced than the Straw Hats. The drug was a good plot point.
If any speed readers need me to explain why FI was one of the best arcs, just behind Skypiea and Enies Lobby, I am here.
As for the moment that really sold me to OP, honestly, it probably wasn't until the first encounter between Luffy and Enel. When we find out that Enel can't affect Luffy with his lightning, and when Luffy just casually kicks the shit out of Enel after him completely stomping everyone else so easily beforehand... that's when I knew this series was going to be good.
Tough to say... I started with the anime and I didn't transition to the manga until I caught up to the most recent episodes, and that was only because I couldn't wait when I knew I could get more story through the manga. That being said though the anime starts to noticeably get bad after the timeskip.
I will say start with the anime and go until you start to get annoyed with it (skipping the filler, mind you; use Google to find out which episodes are filler), then switch to manga. It's personally a much nicer experience to do it that way as the VAs for the anime are spot on for every character, the music is phenomenal, and the animation at times (before the timeskip) is amazing.
Luffy clearly won. His goal was to stop Enel from destroying Sky Island and he accomplished it. Enel gave up like a cuck and went straight to the moon because he couldn't beat Luffy.
Random fodder guy looking in surprise at location of badass character that is to be highlighted
When Rebecca cried
When the big mermaid cries
When the big mermaids mother cries in the flashback while random fodders look in surprise
When it was all about luffy punching things standing infront of him for 400 chapters
When Luffy is rogers reincanation
When filler characters get introduced whos fight gets prosponed
When the same ugly fatass bitch is living in alice in wonderland the new wotld
Dressrosa. 4 Levels of marathon chars running
giant kids and black white storytelling with muh kids as tearjerker
Holy shit post time skipp One Piece is atrocious
Best one was zorro vs Sanji while ignoring jobbervillains
Pic related and this
Absolutely, but also check out One Pace as mentioned earlier in this thread. It's the One Piece anime with the filler cut out.
I agree about Fisher Tiger's story 100%
It was unironically great thematically and as a commentary
Hody was garbage on his own, but served as an extremely important foil for Arlong and Fisher Tiger
there are so many its hard to pick one
When Luffy stands up after getting the shit beat out of him. Usopp telling him to get up was so emotional.
Arlong Park is really where it begins to truly shine. The emotion, the battles, the resolution; it all comes together so well. It was what made me realize I was taking part in something truly special.
This made me a fan for life
ep 13 actually
I imagined the scenario if it was Garp once
>Garp walks in wearing a casual vacation outfit with sunglasses and a hat, inconspicuously
>"Who are you?"
>"Oh, and what does a tourist want with me?"
>Garp teleports in and one shots him through the wall, past the island and out in the seas somewhere
>Every fucking fight with a Logia
>Oh boy I sure am glad that there was "insert weakness" here that I could coat myself with
That would have gotten boring after a while, and how would you even TOUCH Kizaru?
It doesn't have to go that way. Could have opened up a way for Usopp/Franky to have another role by having to come up with inventive logia countermeasures rather than just coating in some shit
There were many but I think a very underrated one is when mr 3 makes lots of clones from his candle shit and says Luffy can't win the fight because he's a musclehead that acts by instinct, and Luffy just hits him the first time he tries. When mr 3 asks how he did it, Luffy just says "Instinct". That was very cliche shonen but done in such a nice and hype way
and probably a foreshadowing of observation Haki now that I think about itthat I couldn't help but like it.
The absolute best moment for me was the first Luffy vs Bellamy fight, with Blackbeard's words setting it up.
So we agree that most of the best scenes are Zoro related?
Not ot mention those G.S amvs
>Zoro vs Mihawk, then promises to Luffy to never lose again
>Zoro goes sword shopping
>I got on the wrong ship
>If he wasn't at least this strong then I'd have to become the new captain
>Have you ever met a wild animal you were sure wouldn't bite? Because I haven't
Sanji a shit
Anytime anyone does something to piss luffy off and he gets "serious"
Yeah. It's faster, better structured, and the artwork is incredibly expressive and impactful in a way that Toei's shitty animation could never replicate.
I had a different perception of what One Piece would be before I went in, I thought it would be a lot more tame.
When Lucky Roo (the fat guy on the Red hair crew) shot a man in cold blood I was fucking sold. I didn't expect it but it set the tone of the series perfectly and really stuck with me especially since it was one of the first things to happen.
I fell in love with one piece during the arlong park ark. I lost interest slowly after the time skip to the point where i dont even bother checking the new chapter anymore
Arlong Park really is the make or break point where new readers decide if they want to read the entire series.
For me Shanks saving Luffy and giving him his hat was enough to get me hooked.
Nami's arc is probably the best in East blue saga, but another great moment is Sanji and Zeff trying to survive on that rock in the middle of the ocean. It's one of those moments that feels more like a traditional pirate kind of story.
When haki was still like an invisible coating not like pic related.
Koka is a natural evolution of the concept and provides additional specific benefits over lower-level bosushoku. It's useful to have a physical signifier for something like that.
When luffy used coating the first time on Kraken i thought it totally fit.
Because rubber is actually capable of vulcanization, he can literally transform his body into a bowling ball. It would´ve been an excellent non-gear way to expand on his devil fruit.
...and then everyone was capable of steel-hard nigger fists because muh willpower, godammit i was so angry.
I really wish it would've kept being invisible, just like during the war of the 'BEST'.
Now it's just a wasted potential asspull.
Luffy even has lots of trouble fighting others with coating.
i'm no monetfag, but i think i have a fetish for
- green haired,evil and smug girls
I liked all of the guardian fights except the aftermath with Ohm and Zoro, Shura was cool by design, Gedatsu being goofy but strong made Chopper be able to become more reliable, and Satori was fun and a cool introduction for mantra. The one I did not like was Yama, the design was weak as hell and he did not really do anything except give Robin her only fight.
It's kinda understandable, when I read his past in the manga, I didn't really feel much.
But when I watched it in One Pace, damn, my eyes poured out like a socket. Same goes for some Kyros moments in Dressrosa. I guess having the voices and ost really help with making you feel the emotions.
For manga readers, I highly recommend watching the One Pace edits for post timeskip. It's a worthwhile experience.
Oh, has she appeared, physically, in the most recent chapter?
...No? Gee, I wonder why?
Still my favorite scene in the entire series. I remember being a kid watching this on Cartoon Network, having the same opinion as Nami, and then suddenly understanding everything after Teach's speech and the Shanks callback. Been a huge fan ever since.
