    Relax. One Piece, while particularly entertaining to fa/tg/uys, is far from required reading.

    To clarify, it's entertaining for fa/tg/uys not just for the adventure, but because it's exactly like a superhero game with bro players.

    You know, this could explain how in most of the major arc there's always someone that has to do with wherever they are along with them. I think this is one player who can't make up his fucking mind.

    Captain Morgan arc: Coby
    Buggy the Clown arc: Boodle (Mayor of the town) and Choucou
    Captain Kuro arc: Kaya
    Baratie arc: Johnny/Yosaku
    Arlong arc: Still Johnny/Yosaku
    Loguetown arc: Smoker (DM wanted the character to be more than an NPC face)
    Laboon: Crocus
    Whiskey Peak arc: Vivi
    Little Garden arc: Still Vivi
    Drum Island arc: Dalton, since Vivi didn't really do anything.
    Alabasta arc: Vivi again
    Jaya arc: Montblank Cricket
    Skypiea arc: Gan Fall
    Water-7 arc: Iceberg
    Enies Lobby arc: Oimo/Kashi
    Thriller Bark arc: Player was absent for whole arc.
    Sabaody Archipelago arc: Keimi/Pappug

    Impel Down saw the other players as those that helped out Luffy; Crocodile, Jimbe, Buggy, Mr. 3, Emporrio Ivankov, Bon-chan.

    You now realize that Impel Down was the last time the party would see that player.

    That player was Bon-chan and the tearful goodbye was real.

    Oda's responses to fan questions is just fucking amazing.

    D: Oda-sensei. Since Luffy is a Gomu Human, does that mean his "p*nis" can stretch, too?

    O: His penis can stretch too.


    D: When I went to the barber a little while ago and asked for a Zoro haircut, I got shaved bald. What should I say to get a haircut like Zoro's?



    D: Why does Sanji-san's eyebrow curl up at the end? Please give a real answer!! (Note: This letter is written so that the last word is actually "dork", but it looks like it is still "please".)

    O: Hey!! You, sit right there!! Now listen!! Everyone lives in circles!! The sun, the moon, and the earth all spin around!! And!! If the earth suddenly stopped spinning!! It would be a disaster, tidal waves everywhere!! Now remember that Sanji's eyebrow channels that circular energy!! Reflect upon this!! You may go!!


    D: Wait a second!! Oda-sensei!! You know that scene in Volume 45, where Robin squeezes Franky in a very important place? CAN SHE FEEL WHAT SHE'S SQUEEZING? You simply MUST tell me!!

    O: Yes, she can. All the arms and legs she sprouts are part of her body. She feels the things she touches, and when she's hurt, that damage is done to her own body. So you see... She really DID grab his balls!! Girls, NEVER DO THIS. They're very tender!!

    Blackbeard is quite ruthless but has pretty much same goals as Luffy. Both want the One Piece and to become the pirate king.
    We know very little about the very top of the world government, who knows what kind of people are there. Considering that they have done some pretty nasty things, they could very well end up being the real bad guys in the end.

    While Oda could prove me wrong in the future, no devil fruit we've seen has a mental effect. They enhance the user's body in some way. Mind effecting abilities have always been a form of hypnotism or haki.

    The only fruit that has changed the user mentally is Chopper's Human fruit, and that's only because it gave him a human brain.

    Also, it's been stated that all Vice Admirals can use haki.

    We've seen Garp using Busoshoku Haki since he can hurt Luffy with his 'Fist of Love' and even wounded Marco despite his regenerative Pheonix body.

    Also; "The fact that Sengoku had to keep Garp from going all-out on Akainu after Ace's demise strongly suggests that Garp's mastery over Haki is enough to overwhelm an Admiral-class Logia-user."

    Except that the one in Robin's flag is going the opposite direction of that which was used by Hitler and the Nazis.

    Also, something interesting; "Carl Sagan in his book Comet (1985) reproduces Han period Chinese manuscript (the Book of Silk, 2nd century BC) that shows comet tail varieties: most are variations on simple comet tails, but the last shows the comet nucleus with four bent arms extending from it, recalling a swastika. Sagan suggests that in antiquity a comet could have approached so close to Earth that the jets of gas streaming from it, bent by the comet's rotation, became visible, leading to the adoption of the swastika as a symbol across the world."

    Seeing as Garp has been offered an Admiral position many times, he could easily give Akainu a challenge.

    They seem to slowly be surpassing the old generation. Well, not really surpassing, but the old generation is dying off. Whitebeard was the last big relic of the last age and now Garp and Sengoku have retired. Also, Shiki was a rival to Roger and Luffy defeated him in Strong World.

    Blackbeard is the only person to ever get 2 fruit powers (darkness and whitebeard's quake), but its unclear how he managed to get the power from whitebeard short of it being a 'magic show'. Aside from that, I think the official canon on dual-devil fruits is that it'll kill the person who tries to eat two of them because the devils inside the fruits will fight each other to the death or some mumbo-jumbo like that.

    The biggest problem with Bleach is End of Hypnosis. It's one of the best plot twists of all time, and because of that Bleach hit it's peak really early. In comparison it's all downhill from there, even if the quality stays roughly constant with the rest of the series.

    Usop with a fruit? i dont hink so... he is supposed to be a weakling who learns to overcome his fears (kinda). Giving him a fruit would be easy mode.

    Zoro ahs already said that he would refuse a fruit, and I think sanji would refuse one too.

    Maybe nami would be a good candidate, but she wouuld become a powercreep with the clima tact and a fruit power.

    So, no, I don't think any of them will eat a fruit.

    Agreed, all the non-fruit users found out how to be badass without that shit.

    Also; Luffy, Zoro, and Saji are technically the three 'strongest' in the crew. Only one of them is a fruit user.

    Luffy's strength doesnt have a lot to do with his fruit either, he uses it well but its just a tool. his strength is mainly because of his intense training, incredible physical power and fantastic combat abilities.


    The Gourousei seem pretty antagonistic and somewhat evil and they run the WG. The organisation as a whole is pretty shady.

    And of COURSE the arabasta is in the WG. The world government is the vast majority of the world's nations. From what little we seen the countries outside the WG are complete shitholes that are pretty much isolated totally from the rest of the rest of the world. Or sky islands

    That makes sense when you consider that the WG because of its position probably controls almost everything. The currecny used by most countries, trade sanctions, export import laws, regulation of trade routes, generally policing, technology....

    The plot was like:

    Luffy&crew meets Toriko and have a devilfruit. Toriko can't eat the fruit cause it tastes like shit. Komatsu finds a way to make it not taste shit and they throw a feast and have fun, and Toriko eats the fruit but doesn't manifest powers.

    Turns out the devil fruit tasted like shit cause it was shit.

    Any communication and trade there is, it is controlled by the WG. There must be some kind of trade between some islands, probably moreso outside of the grandline where sea travel is far easier, otherwise why would pirates even exist?

    And while you are right about the sea train, the speed and reliability of the sea train was also very important. The Puffing Tom could travel between Ennis Lobby and Water 7 in a single night, if you compare that, and what we know of the positions of Ennies Lobby, Water 7, Mariejoa and Impel Down the train that night's journey took over a week by ship.

    The new world (The next part of the journey) is fucking weird. The last few episodes highlighted that a few times - Stuff like thunder rain (as in: It rains thunderbolts) and places where you can just walk through the air. That's why we get a timeskip - The party has to prepare for that fucked up place. I don't think using flight would be a viable methode for going through.
    It also explains why Rayleigh could just swim in between islands on the grand line - He was in the new world, so this is piece of cake in comparison.

    A Log Pose (記録指針(ログポース) Kiroku Shishin (Rogu Pōsu)?, literally translated as "Logbook Compass Needle") is a compass-like navigational device; a necessity for traveling the Grand Line. It is a wrist watch with a glass orb sitting on top, and a needle floating inside the middle of that orb suspended from the top by a thin piece of metal or wire. Normal compasses don't work in the Grand Line due to the special magnetic waves created from each island. The Log Pose functions by recording the magnetic wave of an island in the Grand Line, and points to the next island for the user to travel to. How long it would take to lock onto the magnetic waves varies from island to island. Once on an island for the required amount of time, the recording of the magnetic wave resets to accomodate the new island. Apparently, the standard Log Pose doesn't work in the New World.

    Even if you somehow don't go in knowing Aizen is the villain, you'll know he's alive or even that there are traitors. It happened over 6 years ago in a continuing series, it's been spoiled for everyone.

    At the time Aizen was that guy with glasses who died to show there was serious business going down on the sidelines, Gin was involved somehow, Tousen was that black guy who hangs out with Big Helmet Guy, and it was completely believable that the series would end within 2-3 volumes of Ichigo beating Byakuya.
