Since my last review on this was (predictably) deleted, let's go for round deux.
So the chapter starts off with the setting of Kyros and Diamante's fight, which still has not officially began. Diamante attempts to strike Law and Luffy, but Law Room's them out of Diamante's line of attack. Luffy approaches Rebecca telling her that he's proud that she could meet her dad. Rebecca looks like she's about to cry. AGAIN. This would make it, what? The eighth time this arc has her cry? I really hope she doesn't join the SHs. Anyways, I'm kind of desensitized to her tears by now.
Usopp is pretty badass in this chapter. When Sugar approaches Luffy and Law, Usopp's there from about, say, a kilometer away and dishes out his funniest attack yet. It was fu…Read more >
Seriously, freaking great chapter. We've got the match ups of the century and finally, FINALLY, Law is free, and about to commence some serious asskicking. Robin is showing an awesome badass side and finally Law and Luffy have made it to level four. Talk about anticipation. Sabo vs Fujitora FINALLY got some light after like, what? 11 chapters?
The only part that annoyed me was Rebecca. I wish she could just be a strong female character without having to whine and whimper every 2 chapters...sigh. Fortunately, Robin was the saving grace for an awesome female character in this chapter.

So this week's chapter was pretty good. Of course we're all longing for Sabo vs. Fujitora, but what I find better is the fact that we're getting some pretty good setups to fights/plot progression - a lot more than last week's chapter which was, IMO, utter shit. I'm especially glad we're going to see Robin in some combat pretty soon. It's been like, what? 9 years? If only that nerd Bartolomeo wasn't involved this would be her first one on one fight in a long ass time, IIRC.
Also, as a side note, before this chapter I didn't realize how flippin' tall Diamante was...I mean he's freakin' huge!
So what did you feel about this week's chapter? Loved it? Hated it? Why? Leav…Read more >
What did you think was the outright best One Piece moment, episode, chapter, or plot point? And if you have any, why so?
For me, it was the flashback in the Skypiea arc highlightning Noland's story. I found Noland and Calgara to be such realistic characters, ones who I could somehow feel myself relate to despite having no relation to them. The thing that makes this the saddest moment in One Piece for me (besides Luffy reacting to Ace's death) was just how Calgara and Noland promise they will meet again, Calgara ringing the golden bell to lead Noland on his way, but due to fate, they are separated and Noland is wrongfully executed for his "lies". This flashback was part of the reason Skypiea was my favorite arc, or at least one of them. It w…Read more >
Do you guys think there will be any insect Zoans in the future of One Piece? Why or why not?
Insects are animals, so I don't think it would be illogical to classify insect fruits as Zoan. I think it would be pretty interesting to see some fruits like these later in the New World, and honestly I'm kind of surprised Oda already hasn't introduced one.
I'd like to see a mantis fruit, hornet fruit or (especially) a Hercules beetle fruit.
The obvious flaw with the idea is that there's so many insects in the world it would be hard to choose out of all of them, but it makes for interesting ideas.
