First of all, yes I will take my L like a man. I was wrong, Yamato didn't join the crew.
I can't be bothered to comment on this trash chapter of an even more trash arc so I will just copy and paste what I said in a private chat here:
I'm gonna be honest here, the last couple of arcs have really made me question Oda's direction. Post time skip One Piece has had issues in EVERY. ARC.
Fishman Island- people had issues with Hody being a trash villian, Arlong blows him out of the water.
Punk Hazard- the most forgettable arc probably, nobody cares about punk hazard
Dressrosa- way too fucking long, people hated rebecca, pacing was atrocious
Zou- was mostly just a flashback. But one thing that i REALLY personally hated was the secret of how to find the One Piece being told to Luffy instead of Luffy finding it out for himself. Again Zou for was was just a trash version of Skypiea. Robin finding Roger's message >>>>>> Luffy being told how to find the One Piece by a dog. Have no fucking idea why people like this arc
Oda: hey pirates of One Piece, did you know that if your not friends of the Minks and never go to Zou, you'll never get to One Piece?
One Piece Pirates: So Roger's words that the One Piece was open for anyone to find was all a big fat lie?
Loda: Yup, it was all just a lie.
WCI- doesn't matter whether people liked it or not. EVERYBODY agreed that it was controversial. Germa 66 are trash Saturday cartoons level villains' just to give Sanji another unnesscary sob story. Ruined Big Mom in her very first introduction. Yonko Big Mom became Big Meme. Have Jinbe not leave with the other Straw Hats but joined in Wano with zero consequences or repercussions. What was the fucking point then??? ZERO SUSPENSION AND ZERO PAYOFF. Jinbe fans also had to suffer the constant Jinbe will die theories being thrown at them. That is all Oda's fault.
Reverie Arc- More fucking off screening! Cobra dead? Sabo flame emperor? Kuma freed? I don't give a fucking shit! Know why? Cause Oda never told me what happened! There is nothing for me to be hyped about!
Wano- boring plot, shit pacing, useless main character (momo), no Kaido flashback, Red Trashbags having more screen time than the Straw Hat Crew. CONSTANT fake out deaths. plot threads that went nowhere and so many empty burgers. FUCK LODEN TRASH CHARACTER What happened to Zoro gathering the samurai. Remember the hype of Hawkin's prediction that someone was gonna die, but it turned out to be himself all along? lmfao GODA! Kaido's introduction of falling from sky island and the narrator that nothing can kill him vs his death of dying to magma when even Jinbe got punched through the chest by Akainu and still lived. Even if Kaido was gonna die this arc, we all expected his death to be something akin to whitebeard's, but the reality was nowhere near close. Merry's death blows kaido's death out of the water! Kaido and readers expecting a glorious death? Oda: LMFAO
We just have to admit that the golden days of Arlong Park, Alabasta, Water 7 and Marineford are long behind us.
buckle up Ussop fans, your boy Ussop is gonna be in for a rough ride come Elbaf.
Year of Sanji crashed and burned in flames with the cake failing and Sanji not even getting his own 1v1.
Year of Zoro disappointed Zoro fans with no ZKK
Wano disappointed BOTH Carrot AND Yamato fans.
Ussop fans, its your turn next come Elbaf to get shitted on the face by oda's trash writing, best prepare and stock up on copium now.
Oda: so rant over?
Me: yes-WAIT NO! RANT OVER NO ODA, RANT NOT FUCKING OVER! I'M STILL PISSED AS HELL!!!!
IM SO FUCKING MAD AND PISSED ABOUT THIS THAT I CAN'T EVEN FIND A EMOJI GOOD ENOUGH TO ACCURATELY EXPRESS HOW PISSED I AM ABOUT THIS! THAT'S HOW ANGRY I AM!
Rant over. NO. RANT. NOT. FUCKING. OVER!
