    One Piece Chapter 1113: "Stalemate"

    Oda is addicted to his mid transition chapters, ending on a cliffhanger. The stalling of Vegapunk’s message has gone on long enough and the little info that the world will sink under the sea, as bizarre as it is, is not the most interesting to start with or hang on to, since without context it...

    One Piece Chapter 1110; "THE PLANETS/ STARS DESCEND"

    Oda is in a quite good run recently. Not much stalling, and lots of new stuff. However, I'm not really a fan of how the Zoro fight was handled. There is just the single rush panel, that is as basic as it gets. And it's also clear that Sanji had to lend a small part of his Haki (after all, Oda...

    ONE PIECE CHAPTER 1107: I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR YOU

    You mean you don't hate him because he's dying? :milaugh:

    Questions & Mysteries "I would have simply dodged"

    I think he doesn’t much care when he gets hit and it has to do with his hell-theme. That’s at least what it makes me think of.

    ONE PIECE CHAPTER 1107: I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR YOU

    The eagerness and glee do surprise me, also when this is made the only point of a complex chapter. And I remember you said something like “even when I thought I couldn’t hate VP more...” in reaction to a chapter when it couldn’t be more illogical to say so. Because VP was vehemently disagreeing...

    ONE PIECE CHAPTER 1107: I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR YOU

    This just shows your extreme narrow-mindedness. There are more ways to tell a story than one crappy template. But you don’t even know there are such things as interpretations. Vegapunk getting stabbed by the evillest guy far and wide (which you do not care about at all) does not make a...

    ONE PIECE CHAPTER 1107: I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR YOU

    Basically quoting Saturn… Really the guy to side with… Vegapunk's story is ultimately linked to Nika's, and one of turning the government's assets or what they don't want uncovered against itself. Does Oda think or display it as much of a problem? Aside from the theft of DNA, and the...

    ONE PIECE CHAPTER 1107: I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR YOU

    He didn’t create actual clones, and you keep consistently ignoring what deal Vegapunk and Kuma both were agreeing to with both measures. Turning him into a robot is wrong, but their hands were tied. They were hoping to save Bonney, and Kuma agreed, even when Vegapunk protested (important...

    ONE PIECE CHAPTER 1107: I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR YOU

    “Scientific greed”, so you think there is something intrinsically bad or shady about scientific research. Otherwise his stuff has only become “morally dubious” in the hands of the WG or the standard for his “greed” was only set by the WG or Saturn himself (for their immoral reasons). And for him...

    ONE PIECE CHAPTER 1107: I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR YOU

    I said no such thing, I was talking about parties in the series, participants or actors. You single out Vegapunk from everyone, no matter how shady, vicious or more directly responsible they are. Which is very ridiculous. You interpreting something is not an "objective truth". Oda can have...

    ONE PIECE CHAPTER 1107: I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR YOU

    So you pretty much focus all your hate in the series on this one guy. Which is more than a little wack. Otherwise I guess you and most everyone would never stop ranting about how they want every Marine super duper double triple torture dead, not least Kizaru right now. That’s just the classic...

    ONE PIECE CHAPTER 1107: I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR YOU

    This chapter is an example of how Oda milks plot points. Everyone knew Sanji was a match-up for Kizaru, given his speed-feats. Yet apparently he barely paid attention before, but now arbitrarily is the moment (with other things out of the way) to put the spotlight on him. At least for now. (And...

    ONE PIECE CHAPTER 1106 : By your Side

    The last page was actually underwhelming, given the spoiler hype. There is barely any destruction, just basic drawings of Dorry and Brogy cutting ship masts. Whenever redon says something is "AMAZING" or "EPIC", I expect it will be the most basic version it can be. (However, it's a pretty good...

    ONE PIECE CHAPTER 1101: DEAR BONNEY

    "Against worn-out tropes": By simply making a third-rate standard shonen beginning in the middle of nowhere. Oda is simply trying to be pretentious by going against wishes, even if he just does the most basic, tropey stuff. (Or trying to show off with an empty panel of an old character, like the...

    ONE PIECE CHAPTER 1101: DEAR BONNEY

    Baby-level storytelling, it is what it is. Even disregarding how long this flashback has been going on or the cliffhanger.

    ONE PIECE CHAPTER 1101: DEAR BONNEY

    The worst OP chapter I remember. And I never enjoyed reading OP less than right now. And I don’t care about lying about that as a cult-follower. This is barely 5 pages worth, certainly not 2 weeks of content, with one of the worst cliffhangers of all time stretched past breaking point. There...

    ONE PIECE CHAPTER 1099: PACIFISTA

    I had flashback fatigue after the last chapter, and this seems just for completion’s sake, roughly as expected. This King Bekori back-and-forth seems too repetitive. And Dragon remains largely unknown, due to the tight regulation of what topics Oda allows to be talked about. I hope we will get...

    One Piece Chapter 1095: "A World Not Worth Living In"

    I like how this flashback is interwoven with the present narrative, at least for the time being. Normally I would expect Oda to make a crude cut at a cliffhanger for a loredump. And this flashback is actually packed with feeling, unlike the overhyped babble chapter when Garling first appeared...

    One Piece Chapter 1094: "Jay Garcia Saturn"

    Luffy running out of steam is so f___ing annoying. I doubt Oda will ever get rid of it. It just defines the present incarnation of Nika forever. Hopefully he will do some epic shit before they get off this island. That aside, I didn't find the panelling very convincing this chapter. E.g. with...

    ONE PIECE CHAPTER 1089 : THE SIEGE BARRICADING INCIDENT

    I like the storytelling of this chapter, but the contents are not very interesting to me.
