I've just finished the Skypiea arc of One Piece, and I can't really decide if I liked it or not. I feel that it's very well done, but for some reason I just couldn't get into it. I guess it might be the overwhelming feeling of all these important events unfolding in a kingdom that literally exists in the sky. Too easy to get caught up in all the confusion and amazement and lose track of the story.

Anyways, I'm now about to enter the Davy Back arc, or so the Wiki says. I've heard a few good things about it, so I'm certainly excited! Right now I'm reading Doflamingo toy with his subordinates. I didn't expect him to be such a ruthless man. Oh well! What else can you expect from the Shichibukai?

On that note, I am a little thrown by the bounties. Luffy's is currently one hundred million, a third of Doflamingo's former bounty. How big a deal can Doflamingo really be if, comparatively? Furthermore, how is he in the same organization as Boa Hancock, who I hear earned an eighty BILLION starting bounty?

Oh well, I suppose the power of the seven Shichibukai differs radically.

Now, I'm off to read more One Piece!

EDIT: I've just found out that I was mistaken, and Hancock's bounty is but eighty MILLION! Disregard my former thoughts on the Shichibukai's bounties!
