Your takes actually drive me crazy at times. But, hey, you do a lot to keep threads going. Just wanted to make it clear I don't hate/dislike you, your posts just worsen my insanity.
And my insanity is not at a good level to begin with. Hope things go well/get better for you, the world is a fucking mess right now. I know you want the world to be a good place. Hope Carrot joins and we can laugh about it someday.
About the One Piece trailer. If I understand correctly. The arlong ark is extended toward the entire series or at least toward the Mid point of the second act with bits here and there. The part with the strawhat fighting Arlong in the barratie (badly) should act as setup for the climax of the series when they wreck the hell out of him. Good choice from the writers. Not bad at all.
