    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.

    Don't quote me on this but...
    Zolo's bounty hunter friends mentioned her way back right before Baratie. I think she's the first or second Warlord mentioned.

    Of course, the whole Kuina thing might be moot, if
    Tashigi turns out to be her, which I think is still very possible. Her falling down the stairs might have just given her amnesia or something, or maybe her father was just trying to get rid of Zoro.

    Hm, there might be some development on that soon, since she got recalled to Mariejois with Smoker.

    I doubt it. Wasn't that what 4kids tried to pass off as happening?
    While people who die in flashbacks tend to stay quite dead, I wouldn't be surprised if Tashigi turned out to be Kuina's long lost twin sister or suchlike. Stranger things have happened.

    I kinda like it the way it is. I wouldn't be mad per se if they used some convoluted reason to bring her back, but I like how it works out now.
    You just know that by the end of this Sanji is going to be the last male character without a love interest. Including Chopper...and Brooke.

    Well to be fair Chopper can't really have one and Brook COULD because the devil fruit let's him do other bodily functions. So yeah just Sanji.

    To my recollection, they only mentioned Mihawk (because he'd just handed Zoro his own ass) and Jimbei (because Arlong, who they were heading for, was his former subordinate).

    Also, Blackbeard is totally going to become a Yonkou (perhaps/probably by offing Whitebeard). He doesn't fit in with the theme naming of the rest of Shichibukai (animals), but he does fit in with the 'colour' naming of the Yonkou.

    Fuck it, I am way too tired to do this shit tonight.

    I spent the better part of an hour scouting around for good profile photos. Found some real keepers, but damn if I didn't have to dig through a mountain of porn to get them. Ugh.

    On the flip side, it definitely seems like the anime company/japan in general is more responsible for the raunchy side of Nami.

    I'll be doing a double update tomorrow to make up for today's, which is probably going to murder me.

    I want to hurry up with these so I can get to Franky, because that one will be epic.

    Will it be SUPAH?

    I've heard tell that he is so manly even his sneezes pronounce his greatness!

    OH YAH, UH HUH, SUPAH!

    He also has the best commerical lead in/lead out, though Brook gives him a run.

    Then you need to pull a XOB from a few nights ago and stay up all damn night catching up to the manga.

    Bonus if you finish with enough light to read everything clearly!

    The night after I had a vision.
    Alvida/Hancock Harem show with Luffy as the guiless male of their desires. In true harem fashion eventually Robin and Nami will also try to woo him for no reason.

    Frightening, but I'd watch/read it.

    I'll steer clear of the manga.

    I tried the same thing with Naruto and I just started skipping everything in the Anime because I knew what would happen.
    Since One Piece is a BAJILLION times better than the big N, I don't want to miss a second.

    Ah, that's totally what happened to me.

    Perhaps it was partially because the fan sub I was following had stopped before the end of the anime: they were far behind.

    So I went and found the manga and I've not caught up with the anime ever since!

    I thought Hulu would be my salvation but then those jerks at funimation decided OP was too cool for Hulu. Bah!

    I did totally go and watch all of the Enies' Lobby arc when I had a chance!

    I love both mangas. I think both of them have good story, mystery, action, characters and art styles. The problem I have with anime covering either titles is that there are quite a number of scenes where the animation is not fluid, which tears me from my suspension of disbelief.
    Bleach is condemned.
    In Naruto's case, the Manga is infinitely better than the anime, in terms of story and pacing. At the very least the manga skips the horrible fillers in the anime.
    As for One Piece, i don't see it diverge much from the manga, especially when animating the main story. I guess the animation is more fluid than Naruto in general.

    Speaking of mysteries, what else is left unanswered in One Piece?
    1)What is One Piece?
    2)What in the world is the will of D. ?
    3)We know 2/4 'Pirate Lords', White Beard and 'Red Hair' Shanks, who are the other two?
    4)Who/what is Vegapunk?
    5)Who is Luffy's Mom/Grandmother?!! (lol wtf no female relatives)

    Yeah, I'm ignoring the manga because it would spoil the anime for me, and leave me in the same "shit, want more!" situation, just a few chaptes further along.
    As far as changing designs go, chibi Chopper is probably the most obvious. And everyone's faces have gone less blobby lately (which I like, even if it sometimes makes Nami look like a witch from profile).

    [edit] Kaidou is the 3rd lord, we just haven't seen him yet.

    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?
    Really? I found it to be drawn out, the whole bubble popping thing to be redundant and maybe it's just the sub groups but I don't think it captured the whole cut off mid sentence aspect of a few of the crew members very well that I found so tragic in the manga. Though that can easily be a problem with subtitles vs speech.

    It wasn't bad, I loved seeing Luffy tear across the ground in Gear 2nd as well as him writhing around on the ground but I think that chapter in the manga was top notch and the way they kept cutting away to bubbles popping rather than crew mates being jettisoned away became obnoxious.

    We also don't know anything about the missing history, or what message Smoker wanted to give to Luffy.

    What we do know though, is that Luffy punches people in the face REALLY REALLY HARD.

    And that's the most important thing.

    What I love about the Straw Hat crew is that they (in particular Luffy) are basically the group "who makes the impossible possible".

    I mean,even the other rookies were all "Well,those guys are assholes,but we won't touch them." and those are guys who regularly kill civilians. And Luffy? He just punches the guy because it's what he wants.

    The Straw Hat crew has no rules except their own and that's why they are such a big threat to the World Government.

    Also, Trafalgar's ability is awesome.

    I know for a fact that even though I'm caught up to the manga that I will watch every episode released even though I know what was coming.

    Hell I knew what was coming (roughly) on just about everything I've seen so far. The only real surprises was the ghost carpenter and the bit with Kuma.

    Law is arguably the coolest pirate Oda has ever created, and my personal favorite out of the entire Grand Line.

    Yeah, and there's the whole Lost History/Poneglyphs story.
    Arguably one of the biggest ones, since it's tied closely with Rogers' journey and might have something to do with the One Piece.

    It's a manga with a great and engaging story, that's for sure.

    Edit: Also,I hereby declare that the best ability in the entire series and all of anime belongs to the Mafia Pirate. Seriously. That shit? Fucking fly. And scary. Also crazy. And I have no idea how that is supposed to work but whatever.

    I come here to say that Luffy is a retarded name. He's Ruffy in the danish translation of the comic and it's infinitely less retarded.

    For some reason I stopped reading it somewhere between volume 25 and 30, I think. Maybe I should see how many of the ones released later they have at the library.

    Surely Wikipedia can't be correct when it says only up to volume 21 has been released in English. As far as I can tell, volume 44 has just been released in Danish.

    First the Offical Translation is Luffy. Ruffy sounds like some sort of inbred dog.


    Second yes wiki is correct. Apparently Viz is remedying that by releasing five volumes a month for like half a year. Hopefully this means they'll jump to Water 7 and get going on Franky.
