    Code Geass is a guilty offender as well.

    But in OP, it seems every single female character has the exact same body shape and measurements. Reminds me of Lupin. I feel it's kind of lazy, but whatever.

    I felt that Oda made some steps to breaking this stride in Amazon Lilly.

    Old habits die hard though...
    Hello Domino and Sadi-chan!

    Well there sure is a tremendous amount of vapid busty eye candy in Bleach, no matter what you want to call it.

    Can we quit talking about Bleach?

    It's off topic. In addition to being a stupid area of discussion.

    I agree, let's talk about a better area of discussion. For example... has anyone noticed how big Nami's rack gotten over time? I understand having good old fashion fanservice but she was much cuter and believable at the start of the series.

    Examples:

    First episode:
    nami2.png
    93rd:
    nami33q.png
    Current:
    nami55.png

    I've bitched about it before, and took heat from a rabid fanboy as a result, but yeah, it is pretty stupid. Even if you want to argue that it's been five years since her debut, there's no way her rack would grow so much.

    I attribute much of this to fluctuating animators. Or does the manga follow this "development" as well?

    I think so. It's likely that as Nami's popularity went up, her mammaries became subject to, uh, fan expectations.

    Popularity does not work that way. :(

    At least not in the anime world.

    I'm against it, honestly, because it's making Nami look sillier with each expansion. If they were to do Arlong Park right now, I'd probably get a creepy "sex slave" vibe with Nami and Arlong.

    Nami's rack tends to grow and 'reset' after arcs.

    The adrenaline of a battle-fueled good time makes her heart pump fast, then some nice relaxation makes them gently deflate.

    I'm at episode 401 now. Only 4 more episodes until I caught up :( I am saddened by the fact that I now have to wait like everyone else and can't just watch like 5 episodes in a row anymore.

    I love those damn characters so much, I'll miss them :(

    It's bigger on average, both manga and anime, from what it was pre-alabasta. Sex appeal starts to creep in around then something fierce.

    Episode 405....

    Damn.
    That was intense in the manga, but in the anime with voices to the images? Gut-wrenching.

    I wonder, has any other shonen protagonist group been crushed this thoroughly this far into the series?

    Around this time in dragonball most of the people in the universe were dead.

    Just a little while ago you could consider Naruto in a similar situation.

    Plus the strawhats have an ally for whatever reason in this business.

    I dunno, in the context of the episode by itself, with nothing after it, I can't think of anything as bleak in other shonen series.
    One guy. Just walks around, taking out the crew one by one. Stalking them like Jason Vorhees and putting them away at his leisure while all the normally-overconfident leader can do is scream at him to stop because he's powerless to do anything else.

    Knowing what we know from the manga, this situation is much less horrific than it was portrayed in the anime.

    But still, I can't remember seeing a shonen hero quite as powerless to do anything as in this episode. His hard work and guts are worth nothing now, and all he can do is wail in a mixture of rage and sorrow as he's taken out as well.

    True, but from our viewpoint we know that something is up.
    Also Zolo, Brook, Robin, and Sanji also know that he's probably not going to kill them either because he didn't last time, despite having orders to do exactly that. From Luffy's point of view though, you may have a point.

    Is that last shot of Nami from movie seven?

    Movie seven was massively disappointing. After hearing the badass soundtrack in the CP9 fights, I thought the movie was going to be great!

    All I got was a breast jiggling in the most facepalm manner.

    Earthquake? Quick, turn to Nami! Getting on a vehicle? A line from nami! A butterfly flapped it's wings nearby? Nami shot!

    Movie 7 was fanservice central.

    Usually it's the animators who make Nami larger than she actually is, and 7 took the fucking cake with this.

    Ironically, i'm going to start Nami's profile tonight.

    I think at this point Kuma and Vegapunk probably both work for or with Dragon. Kuma even named dropped him before he pain balled Zoro

    Yeah, just because every female character is eventually reduced to a useless pair of tits doesn't make it harem.

    And even that's been suspended for the moment, thanks to Halibel.

    a) basing this whole conversation off a work of fan-art isn't really giving anything a fair shake

    b) while they might have tits, Bleach has it's fair share of strong female characters

    But enough of that. That's off topic stuff. Let's talk about on topic tits.

    Possibly nsfw just in case
    There. Now you've seen all of Movie 7

    I love blackbeard's character. He's wacky and charming in the same ways that Luffy is, and yet so very diabolical.

    I couldn't really find a really good example of his laugh, but I love it.

    I was going to nominate Blackbeard when the conversation came up, but found that techno remix of brook instead.

    Also I think you guys have GUARANTEED that I watch movie seven eventually. There has to be more than that in there, even if it is terrible.

    I've seen every DBZ and Pokemon movie, so I'm immune to bad filler characters in movies. OP can't be any worse! :P

    Chapter 489 and sorta recent spoilers
    Hancock was mentioned in this chapter, which I found interesting considering she didn't show up for another 27 chapters.
