    General & Others Why has One Piece failed so miserably in the West?

    The 4Kids dub played a huge part. I was nine years old when I first watched it, and even I knew it was ass. Also Oda's artstyle isn't exactly the most appealing to look at, I mean Naruto, DBZ, Bleach are just cooler to watch. Also most in the west seem to prefer their shonen to be more actiony...

    News One Piece Live Action Series!!

    Just finished it, and yeah it was bad. I am not feeling Inaki Godoy. He's not how I pictured Luffy like at all. That "OF COURSE I WILL!" yell after helping nami was just straight cringe, it might have worked in the anime, but it does not in live action. The CGI is some of the worst I think I've...

    Questions & Mysteries What was the arc that truly placed one piece as a masterpiece worldwide famous show?

    I've been reading weekly since Thriller Bark, but I'd say the series had a big jump in popularity during Enies Lobby. Then it basically exploded when Marineford, and Strong World came out. After that One Piece was always at the top of manga sales charts.

    What even is the point of this chapter? Luffy neg-diffs Lucci. Wow!, Didn't see that one coming! Oda should just focus on whatever lore he wants us to focus on.

    Spoiler One Piece Chapter 1062 Spoilers Discussion

    "Adventure in the land of Science" I wonder if we're getting a villain in this arc, would it be Vegapunk? What would the final fight look like? Fighting a giant robot?

    Not the real Vegapunk imo, but idk making a Vegapunk a little girl is something Oda would definitely do for gags.

    Controversial Which arc is worse: Fourth Great Ninja War vs Wano.

    Anyone who voted Wano, hasn't read or seen Naruto in awhile. There were some straight asspulls in the fourth great ninja war. Though if Wano is anything to go by, I'm worried about how One Piece's final arc will turn out.

    General & Others Is this the same man who wrote Fishman Island?

    Not getting pussy does crazy things to a man. That's why I'm all for the legalization of prostitution.

    Future Events Where is the story going next?

    No idea, which honestly feels like a first post-timeskip. Apart from maybe arriving at Punk Hazard. I've said it before, but I'm hoping for a short breather mini adventure arc similar to long ring-long land or Zou. But I agree that the next big island is probably Elbaf.

    Finally got around to reading spoilers, and Jesus what the in the ever-loving fuck was that ending? "Kurozumi's were born to burn!" Yeah the entire reason the events of Wano happened is because the Kurozumi family was treated like garbage, one of them becomes an evil dictator, who is overthrown...

    Spoiler Spoiler One Piece Chapter 1057 Spoilers Discussion

    Lmao, RIP to Yamato for Nakama. After 4 long years this arc is finally over. I can't really say it lived up to the hype for me. I did a reread when Kaido was defeated, and the pacing is just all over the place at certain parts, and the fights apart form Kaido v Luffy were major disappointments...

    Questions & Mysteries When Yamato joins what her first outfit?

    Strangely enough I have a feeling Oda's not going to sexualize her. I think she'll wear full clothes on most occasions. Of course Sanji is still going to perv on her and what not. Most of the strawhats have some sort of gag associated with them, so I'm curious to see what hers is.

    Chapter Discussion Chapter 1054 Is Pure Garbage

    Yeah, the Shanks thing confused the hell out of me. Like you took the time to travel to Wano, you stay on your ship on the outskirts, talk about Luffy being an emperor and Bartolomeo causing you problems, then you just dip? "Da fuck??" was my reaction.
