    Love how Luffy is told to stay incognito, agrees to do so, but forgets he's already blown his cover lol

    Cool to see Oda focused on Sanji's reaction a bit when they were explaining their connections since he wasn't there when the Minks and the Samurai explained their connection back on Zou.

    The new opening theme is great, that Su long and Snakeman tease was all I needed.

    Although it is a bit lazy, a lot of reused animation.

    I want to go back to 1:50 openings, please.

    I'm tired of obvious padding (remember when Chopper fought Big Mom and they were clearly even? 'Cause I don't!) and all the Strawhats being focused on even when half of the crew is on another island. Do they think people will assume Luffy kicked them out of the crew or something? I get it, marketing, but it's really unnecessary.

    I think those particular scenes would still be there in a shorter opening. Chopper vs Big Mom is part of the Sunny team showcasing their powers, which is a must of every shonen opening ever, and Zoro team has to be there cause they're still main characters (They're not even that much in this one. They've cut down a lot of random SH shenanigans this time.) It would be some of Luffy vs Katakuri and the Germa that could be more easily removed, and increase the pace for all those still shots.

    Honestly, the first few shorter openings are some of the most forgettable to me.

    I like that they decided to completely focus on the arc we're in for once, but it's gonna be awkward if they don't change it for Reverie and Wano.

    The opening is absolutely a mixed bag, the song's hook is good but everything else is forgettable and a snoozefest. Reusing Germa's animation is classic cutting Toei. WTF was with Chopper V Big Mom? I don't even remember that being a thing lmao.

    Thankfully the Luffy V Kata fight has been phenomenally handled for the most part at least. There's definitely been some bad shots, but they are so far in between I barely care.

    Heavily recommend not reading spoilers this week, this chapter is a biggie.

    Chapter is out, Shutenmaru has to be Asura right? The ruffian from the flashback last chapter?

    I get it fits with the whole feudal Japan theme, but I feel someone with Kaido's build would fit the Western-style dragon mold, you know?

    Oh well, this doesn't look like a Smile (then again, Momonosuke turned into a full dragon with his), so there's still his half-human half-beast form.

    Shutenmaru certainly surprised me in the small fight against Jack. Kaido became Shenlong. I think the Chinese Dragon form perfectly fits him .

    Cue the nonstop Shenron jokes for the next week, but that is a majestic looking bastard.

    Shutenmaru is mad hype too.

    Also Jack can't catch a break, poor guy is destined to look like a scrub.

    So when does Fourth Gear Luffy breakout his Multi-Armed Finisher from Jump Force on Kaidou?

    So, who do you think the new protagonist is gonna be? Because Luffy just signed his death warrant.

    Well Zoro would be my first guess maybe Usopp for my third choice.

    But seriously I'm assuming after Kaido beats both Luffy and Law into the ground he'll lock them up where they'll have reunion with their old pal Kid.

    Zoro for main protagonist please.

    Anyway, I'm also expecting to see Luffy and Law ending up in a cage with Kid now. Maybe, the alliance will become bigger if the Kid Pirates join them as well. We haven't seen Killer in a while too.

    Mr. Reloaded At this point, who knows?

    And thus ends tale of 5th emperor sama, that one and a half billion on his head is giving him bad thoughts. Poor kid's biting off more than he can chew.

    CyberBlaziken A Greater Evil

    Is this a thing now? Luffy not giving two cents about the actual plan in action?
  18. Mr. Reloaded

    Mr. Reloaded At this point, who knows?

    What a tragic end to fake news 5th emperor sama. And look how much of a fool people made of themselves when they believed G4 was top tier lmao. We knew this was bull when Big Mom low diffed a Kong Gun, but people just wouldn't let up. Awakening and G5 are for sure happening now.

    Whew, Luffy couldn't even survive one hit at full health... Not sure Awakening and Gear 5 would be enough honestly.

    Well, you tried, Luffy, and that's what really mattered.

    Oh no, not Tama. She's totally, 100%, irreversibly, dead.
