    Chapter Discussion One Piece Chapter 1020: Robin vs. Black Maria

    Solid chapter, but it gets clearer and clearer that Oda is going to end this arc with his usual formula (flying Onigashima as the usual Birdcage/Advent of Thunder/Nuke like threat, Luffy loses and is out of the picture for a while, rest of the SHs win their matchups, Luffy comes back a final...

    Powers & Abilities How strong do you guys truly believe Helmeppo and koby are?

    40% think that they might be on Tobi Roppo level. Not exactly a high number, given the fact that OP stans always tend to vastly overestimate the strength of certain characters. 60% think they're below the Tobi Roppo, which is the only logical conclusion we can draw as of right now. As random...

    One Piece Episode 984 - Luffy Goes Out of Control?! Sneaking into Kaido's Banquet

    Luffy's CoC actually was hinted at way before (when he stopped Duval's bull even before Sabaody).

    One Piece Chapter 1019: Heliceratops

    I actually don't value Enies Lobby all that much because of all those reasons. Arc endings have never been oda's strength imho. My top 5 arcs still remain: 1) Water 7 2) Sabaody 3) Jaya 4) Zou 5) Skypiea

    One Piece Chapter 1019: Heliceratops

    That isn't even a concern for me. Wano is the biggest arc up to date, such a massive buildup was ok. It was the way this buildup was executed. The Tobi Roppo were literally introduced in the last minute, just to present us some random 1-vs-1 opponents for the lesser SHs in the last minute.

    One Piece Chapter 1019: Heliceratops

    Are there really some people left, who think that PageOne, Ulti, Who's Who and Sasaki aren't out yet? Good Lord, how obvious does Oda have to be? Those fights are over. Oda wants to get to the finale of the arc, this much is painfully obvious. Now you can hate that, which I kind of...

    Future Events Who are the 3 straw hat most likely to die at the EOS ?

    Outside of WB and Ace, I consider none of them to be "confirmed" dead. This is Oda after all. We've seen characters like Pell come back from a basically "secure death" and even Pound, who many already painted in as "dead", miraculously returned and was totally fine. Heck, even Moscato, who was...

    Powers & Abilities How strong do you guys truly believe Helmeppo and koby are?

    As of right now? Yes, zero doubt they lose to Oven or PageOne in my opinion.

    Powers & Abilities How strong do you guys truly believe Helmeppo and koby are?

    You're still overestimating them. Yes, they have a high growth rate, but people tend to blow that out of proportions. Remember when we saw them being able to use Rokushiki pre-skip? They still were complete fodder to hakiless Luffy and Zoro. Those two didn't even try and one-shotted them with...

    Powers & Abilities How strong do you guys truly believe Helmeppo and koby are?

    No, not at all. I wouldn't even call them fodder now. They just aren't in the league of really strong fighters like Shichibukai, Vice Admirals or Yonkou Commanders (what some fans want them to be). I think they could be around Tobi Roppo level at the end of the series and then we see Coby...

    Powers & Abilities How strong do you guys truly believe Helmeppo and koby are?

    Ehm ... you realize that he wasn't sent alone? He wasn't even in charge of that attack. He was only part of a huge fleet, probably led by Fujitora.

    Powers & Abilities How strong do you guys truly believe Helmeppo and koby are?

    Pre-timeskip Smoker at the very best - and that's being very, very generous. You guys are MASSIVELY overrating both of them. Even Smoker, who was way stronger than both of them and had a significant growth himself (learning CoA and CoA, being promoted to VA etc.) is clearly not in the league...

    Spoiler One Piece Chapter 1019 Spoilers Discussion

    Yep, I only listed the most obvious ones. The sheer amount of still open matchups alone should be enough to convince even the doubters, that Oda has already begun the process of finishing the matchups (as we've seen with Ulti vs Nami/Usopp, Jinbei vs WsW and Franky vs Sasaki).

    You can act like a little kid all you want, I am going to be right like usual. Everyone knows those guys are out. The earlier accept it, the less embarassing it is for you.

    Spoiler One Piece Chapter 1019 Spoilers Discussion

    They're out. It's pretty obvious that we're in the final stages of all those matchups. Only Black Maria vs Robin/Brook, Sanji vs Queen, Zoro vs Kaido, BM vs Law/Kidd and Luffy vs Kaido left.

    One Piece Episode 982 - Kaido's Trump Card - The Tobi Roppo Appear

    What the actual fuck was that? You know, letting the incredibly slow pacing aside, this was a legendary episode in terms of imagery, animation, directing and everything else. It was almost movie quality. Never seen an episode of a weekly (!) anime series so well done.

    Anime & Manga One Piece Spoilers - The Waiting Room

    Not really. Most of the time those "big announcements" are just really, really boring once (like a new theme park opening, movie or sth like that).

    Current Events This is becoming too bullshit writing at this point

    I'm not talking about plot consequences. I'm talking about actual consequences (major injuries, deaths) to known characters. Impel Down and Marineford were a joke in that regard. About 90% of OP readers are 18+ (survey was done in Japan a few years ago). Younger guys read other manga series...

    Speculations Do you think Usopp vs P1, Brook vs WsW, and Jinbe vs Jack will happen?

    No ... just no. How long do some fans actually want Wano to continue? If you come up with character returns (WsW, P1 etc.) and new matchups, we're still sitting in Wano in 2025. Wano is nearing it's end and the less significant enemies like the Tobi Roppo etc. are already defeated or will be...
