for how long it already goes without the feeling of it becoming boring or meaningless story wise he can continue as long as he want for me.


#246

At this point, I’m ready to see the end. Maybe because I’m bored of this arc so far.


#247


#248

It’s partially me being frustrated by the lack of main story development / big reveals. Give us something major about a mystery already Goda!


#249

the one piece in itself? they will getting there… but exploring the world, seeing new things on their journey and enemies. i like it so far and i am more on the patient side when it comes to the main quest.


#250

One piece is the lord of the rings of manga. They built up such a big world they could end it in the next 5 years. And have a world where they could stuff for the next 40 yrs in that world


#251

Not much One Piece in itself. There are so many mysteries already that we don’t know anything about yet:

  • Vegapunk
  • Void Century
  • The Moon
  • The Gorosei and their leader
  • Roger’s weird disease
  • All Blue
  • Blackbeard’s fruit stealing technique
  • Last Straw hat member
  • Poneglyphs
  • Raftel
  • Ancient weapons
  • Devil Fruit origins
  • Dragon’s background
  • Luffy’s mother
  • Haki’s origin
  • Shandians
  • Will of D
  • How come stairs are so OP that it killed Kuina in a world where people survive worse things

and much more that I probably forgot about.


#252

Heres a question for you all. Would you prefer shorter - not not very short - but relatively much shorter arcs where they visit more islands and cultures be or the longer 2 year arcs with deeper storylines.

I think theres a fine balance and sometimes some of the arcs are a bit too long for my tastes.


#253

I don’t mind longer arcs at all. But regardless of arc length, the story sometimes bogs down on the details of whatever locale they’re in.


#254

It all depends on the location, characters and fights. OP can go on for yeas, so long as it doesn’t start plodding on battles and story for hundreds of chapters to hype up the villain like the ending to Bleach and Naruto wound up doing all to make the fight seem better.

That being said, the title they put for this ‘saga’ being War on Four Emperors and Oda’s comments makes me feel Blackbeard or his crew will definitely have an impact on this arc some how beyond the usual cameos. He says it will go beyond 1000 chapters, given we are at 930 at this point, I can’t see arcs for Blackbeard and wrapping up the journey being anything less then 200 chapters, so probably in range of 1300.


#255

and the good thing about mysteries is that they are mysteries. i actually dont want real answers for all of these points. sometimes its better to keep things open…midi-chlorians…really…eh…


#256

I don’t mind One Piece taking a while to conclude, its more about the journey than the destination for me. I’d rather Oda writes the story at his pace than have a rushed, plot-hole filled mess like some other shade-wearing mangaka.

My only real concern is that WWIII, Yellowstone super-eruption, Skynet, Ebolaids, direct solar flare, global warming-induced mega typhoon, or Kaiju invasion doesn’t happen before then.

New chapter: https://readms.net/r/one_piece/930/5615/1

Kaido crew vs Big mom?!! Sanji using the germa tech!!!


#258

Would be disappointed if we saw Sanji resort to using that trick this early. Also King’s DF… if Queen could turn into a giant moth we’d have something special.


#259

#260

So… the dreaded Break Piece just hit us again after a previous 2 week haitus, ouch…

I didn’t expect to see Big Mom so soon and Kaido’s tense reaction towards her means he’s definitely very familiar with what she’s capable of — being former crewmates after all. King bopped her and the ship temporarily, but I suspect this very event is going to lead to Kaido being directly impeded by Big Mom once the Strawhats, Law, and the ronin start mobilizing their forces. I can see her sucker punching Kaido out of nowhere lol.

Oh and it seems without her precious cloud Zeus she didn’t have the means to fly to Wano or recover from her fall. Nice touch Oda.

King’s Pteranodon Devil Fruit was surprise, especially since he’s still emitting flames for some reason. I guess he’s on the same ish Cracker is on with the sparklers. Judging by Queen’s ponytail, he might be a scorpion Zoan then?

Zoro is shaping up to be the people’s champ of this arc, and rightfully so considering this is Wano. That smirk of admiration for the Leftover townsfolk means he’s going to be willing to do some serious work on their behalf. Oh and I suspect Hyori is taking stolen money from her admirers to give to Esubi town.

Sanji’s suit will probably have fire enhancing capabilities seeing how that seems to be his specialty. I hope this one of those rare occasions where he uses his hands.


#261

sanji needs to learn flash kick and make it his own
