>>13329617 Why do you think it's gonna be Franky who takes him down? Has Oda commented on it or something? I always thought he would be fighting Burgess (tho I guess that could change now, after Sabo took him down and who knows what will happen).
On second thought, it would be really cool if Burgess fought Robin.
>>13330119 Not that anon, but I've always thought Franky would fight San Juan too, because San Juan is fucking HUGE and Franky seems like the best suited Strawhat to fight against something of that size. Maybe he'll pull some crazy shit like wearing the Sunny as power armor.
>>13330317 Yeah, that makes sense. It would be cool to see all the strawhats going at him a la Moriah!Oars but, since that was done already, it may lessen the awesome. Other than Franky, I could see Chopper taking him on. And Burgess vs Robin would still be awesome too.
All of that being said tho, Oda has mixed it up a bit with some of the matchup choices in the past, so we might still get something crazy like Brook vs San Juan or something.
>>13330710 >>13330749 C'mon, people, you're both wrong. There will be a map, a chase for the treasure, and a good, old-fashioned treasure chest. And in that chest will be a seed, for a tree that grows the Ultimate Devil Fruit, which will give its user all the powers. It'll accidentally be eaten by Franky Shogun, bringing the robot to life and making it the most powerful thing in the world. Everyone will rally together to destroy it, and the seed will be destroyed in the process. Then we get an open ending. It's so obvious.
>>13329723 Kinnikuman's is apparently pretty fun, even if it skips over the monster hunts among other things. Meanwhile, Sakigake!! Otokojuku has a fairly good adaptation that only had a battle or two cut out near the end (although in fairness, the series itself was getting derivative/repetitive by that point).
Also, vanilla Dragon Ball's (and not Z) had only a few issues, but was actually decent and enhanced some story arcs nicely.
>>13329644 Like other anons mentioned you should definitely read it instead of watching.
Out of all the shonen fighting shows, it's the best of the bunch. It's strongest aspect is its world building. As opposed to DBZ or other shows it actually feels thought out with many things set up and the series continually rewards readers for following it. Characters are not ever forgotten (except Don Krieg and Kuro). It also doesn't feel cynical at all.
I think both Capone Bege and X Drake are quite cool too, since Capone just has a really fun power and X Drake has an interesting setup as a marine who left to pursue a vendetta against one of the Yonkou and can transform in to a t-rex.
And that's discounting Luffy, Zoro and Law, who all have gotten significant panel time (Law a lot less, obviously) within the manga. Law is a pretty standard bishounen character in a lot of ways I suppose, but his increasing frustration and then acceptance of the Strawhat's craziness along with his reaction faces to things like Chopper hat are a lot of fun and his powers can make for some interesting fights and great panels (like cutting the top off a mountain fighting Vergo).
The only ones I think are flat out boring is probably Urouge and Killer, and that's mostly because we've seen so little of them. When the manga finally gets around to focusing on them a little I imagine they'll become more than just "big strong guy" and "faceless sword dude", which is basically all they are at the moment.
>>13329701 Not the same anon but Dressrosa is dragging too much, we were nearly in the 3rd year after its arc started and we're still in.
And in every fucking arc, the crew are separated in the first 15 chapters and they run, run and run until they encounter an enemy, each of the crew member has a fight on 3 or 4 chapters and for Luffy the final boss in 10 chapters.
I liked the tournament part, but after that, it became a generic One Piece arc.
The manga is the better choice, so read that instead. It's still 800 chapters, but it's not like it's a race, so it's fine to read a handful of chapters every day or two until you're caught up. Which should only take a few minutes a day since reading chapters is quite quick. The anime is great at times, because the music and voice acting are on point for a lot of the big scenes, but once you get past Skypiea (I think it's around there) the anime starts really padding for time and getting kind of ridiculous, so it's better to just use it to watch your favorite scenes instead of watching it straight through.
>>13334303 >The only ones I think are flat out boring is probably Urouge
Urouge was a very interesting set up himself, Oda actually put work into him from the outset as opposed to simply a gimmick ability you like Capone for.
Urouge has the same wings as Birka natives, the island Enel destroyed before Skypeia, hinting he may have a connection with the only other Birka survivors who were Enel and his priests. His crew is the Fallen Monk pirates, his transformation ability called 'Karmic Punishment', so what made the 'Highest Priest' end up a pirate in the grand line picking fights in bars at Sabaody? And why does this monk rarely stop smiling? Even when he thought a Pacifista was the end of him, he was still smiling like a D on the floor. One of the few times he did stop smiling was when he saw Raijin Island, and island showered by lightning that possibly reminded him of Enel.
>>13334664 I re-read Ennies Lobby lately because I saw a random clip with the water train and I could not remember that at all. Then I re-read Water 7 and Ennies Lobby and I reeaaaally had forgotten a whole bunch.
I'm kinda bummed that I feel like we still haven't seen a REAL fight for the strawhats after the time skip. Like, even the dressrossa arc didn't really tax them in a "fight" sense other than luffy. Zoro/Pica was sort of a proper fight but not really, Usopp pulled off a cool sniping thing but didn't really fight anyone, Franky "fought" Senor Pink but the whole thing was in good part just played for laughs, then we didn't really see anything of Nami, Chopper or Sanji, and Robin just played assist to Rebecca and Kyros.
I dunno, in every arc post-timeskip I've felt cheated out of strawhat battle coolness. right now I think that's my biggest complaint about the manga.
>>13335498 Yeah Dressrossa just would not end. Some chapters were beyond pointless. Still, they work better when you read them in one go. Part of the problem is the chapter-a-week thing I think. It feels like far too little, even when it's a good one.
>>13335538 But Franky is a legit cyborg, and one of the main characters. Then there's the pacifistas and vegapunk and the legendary weapons and the city in the moon and the void century (or was it dark history). I dunno that seems pretty /m/ to me.
>>13339248 Not only is that blatantly false, it's completely irrelevant. You don't talk about shit that isn't /m/ on /m/. Not like you'd be likely to get any better discussion here anyway. >inb4 responses with the usual undeserved sense of superiority /m/ always has
>>13334413 I jumped in at the end of Thriller Bark Arc knowing all the character's background and read up until beginning of Punk Hazard Arc. I can't find any of it interesting or emotional. Luffy's identity revelation kinda weakens it.
>>13339386 Posts like these are why people say we're autists. Reading up on a backstory is not in any conceivable universe the same as getting to know it through the story in the way the story tells it, you autist.
An attitude like this >>13339414, however, is completely understandable (even if i, personally, don't find it agreeable).
