Sorry that this is not relevant to the current chapters,
but I'm interested in all the readers thoughts on this
I've been re-reading the 400's chapters and I think I found my favourite way to argue that the Manga is better than the Anime.
When the Going Merry speaks at the end of Enies Lobby, What kind of voice did you project onto it when you read those words
Who envisioned a solumn, diety-like, Morgan Freeman kind of voice? (or maybe Hiroyuki Sanada if you are Japanese)
or maybe the voice of an young adult, older brother (like Sabo)
or did you hear the kind of light weight, choir-boy, sentimental voice that is depicted in the anime,
I use this to argue that the Manga is a better story medium, becuase the Merry is supposed to be a guardian ang…

I'm trying to be unbias but,
I have always found that Robin's backstory is the most compelling of all the Straw hats. It might be the only one that was beyond Oda's ability to do justice to, simply because it is pure drama a world that always has some comedy. This is a story about a girl who is delared a sinful living being and supposed procecuted by the world. That is freaking huge, certainly darker than any other subplot in the story. In the real world, North Korea actually persecutes people this way, by jailing relatives of criminals.
The first half of the Water 7 arc is highly compelling. Robin is presented as a complex, yet sympathetic character. Alas, …Read more >
His maturity level is so inconsistent from episode to episode that, you'd almost think he had multiple personalities.
Todays episode (the first half) is a case, of the more mature Luffy, who has enough attitude and decision making initiative to make you belive that he can become king of the pirates, and then the next time you see him, he will be bouncing up and down on a suspension bridge like a five year old in an inflatable castle.
That's not to say, that it's wrong to give him a bit of whimsy in his personaity, but it's gotten to the point where I think his whimsy needs to be a bit more age appropriate for the story to word, cause the fanbase is aging, and I think more fans will start to feel juggled each passing year.
