Read a new series after a long time. Saw 24 episodes of JJK anime and read the rest of the manga. It was okay I guess. Didn't feel attached to most of the characters. And had no idea why certain events happened when I read initially. Maybe we will get to know the previous events and motives behind it when series progresses towards its end. Not very impressed but it has decent fights
Luffy's new technique "Red Roc" reminds us of the origin of ONE PIECE story. Roc/Rukh is a legendary bird in Middle East. Oda already made it appear as "Mysterious Bird Rukh" in Romance Dawn known as a prototype of OP. Red Roc is a cool naming for this memorial chapter 1000. (Source: Sand Man Twitter)
Just my thoughts:
In Oden flashback, Oden and yasuie seemed like brothers.....Yasuie seemed like a older brother to Oden....Oden has a 26 year old kid and a 28 year old...While yasuie's kid is apparently O Toko ( seems like 8- 15 years old).....Something doesn't add up imo. Is Toko really yasuie's child? Or did Yasuie adopt Toko from someone? I may be completely wrong lol
One Piece magazine reveals that Luffy isn’t included in with regards to wanting 10 crewmates which means there’s 1 more crewmate to join since there are 9 crewmates excluding Luffy currently. https://t.co/2nrQVKOB1V (Source: YonkoProd. Twitter)
Oda told editor Kawashima in the first meeting, "Die for ONE PIECE". He was shocked but impressed at the same time, "Oda is really determined to die for OP." Oda keeps in mind taking 30 minute-walk every day as doctor warned him he'd have an early death unless improving health😅 https://t.co/6JxYWqyEES (Source: Sandman AP Twitter)
Oda revealed his favorite scene in the show.
1 Opening scene of Wano
2 Robin puts Mangrove’s tree sap to Usopp. Oda says it helps audience to feel as if OP world is real.
3 Campfire scene in Skypiea arc. It was the scene where Oda wanted to draw most in that arc

5 minutes ago, ONE PIECE editor Takano revealed in live streaming that he was moved to tears after he read next chapter (986).😭
It was the first time for him to shed tears since he became OP editor. I wonder what next chapter will be like..😍
Just found out about Mr Morj YouTube channel. His explanation of themes and the way he analyses is really excellent!! His videos made me understand more of what Oda would have thought while writing an arc. It made me appreciate One Piece even more!!
