It takes time for oda to draw the full kid fight. So
Much will going on in that fight, so much metal pieces, so much details on his arms and robots. It’s a new level of details oda needs to reach there, give him time!
Lol so Pageone is out too?
Bro.... dude barely get screentime/could show much. He didn't even have any named attack, any combat feats. Ulti has at least one named attack but Pageone is even worse. He literally get defeated because of BM, sae for Ulti. Both couldn't show anything and is that the end for both? I thiugh the summary could save much but nope it is actually even worse.
Waiting 10years after the Timeskip with hoping for a brutal hard battle for the strawhats and Yonkou top members and that is the result, two flyers who barely show anything with two strawhats who do jackshit.. I see many underewhelming battle in the past but this is legit one of the worst parts in the history of One piece. We waiting for so long and finally we get strong opponents with great potential for a good strawhat battle and we ignore all the bad things where the strawhats didn't get hard battle since the timeskip only to hope that they get it against the hyped wano arc where they fight against Kaido troup...
But that is the result, very very bad for Usopp and Nami, their fanbase probably didn't deserve something for their characters. That is actually worse as what Oda did in DR lol.
Im legit scared for the other flyer&Calamity fights, seeing how Oda handle Pageone and Ulti....
Oda did Ulti, Page One, and even Nami and Usopp dirty. We could have had a good between those four but nope instead we get a Scooby Doo chase between them, and then Big Mom comes in and defeats both Page One and Ulti.
Then Ulti gets back up only for her to quickly get defeated again, I knew we would get a rematch fight between Nami and Ulti but this is not what I expected. I had a feeling that if Nami and Ulti had a rematch fight it wouldn't be anything great but this is even worse, and then we have Page One who apparently is still knocked out.
I thought maybe Page One would get back up and then we would see a rematch fight between him and Usopp or maybe Chopper would fight Page One but nope it seems like he is out for good and that is just really disappointing, at least Ulti managed to get back up again and tried to continue fighting again.
I really hope Oda doesn't screw up with the other fights.
So it's better for him to hear what they are saying but not know it's a trap
Than to be focused on sensing the intent?
Again it's bullshit. There was zero excuse for him not intially sensing intent. And stop using the katakuri thing as an example since they were involved in an actual fight and he only lost focus due to how long he was fighting using it and more importantly luffy seeing his face which temporarily made him angry.
Sanji on the other hand was fresh. Sensed a woman being harrrassed and apparently got flustered to the point that he couldn't even sense the intent of her perpatrators?
Post automatically merged:
Never denied his ability simply focused on what we have been given. Oda is clearly not focusing enough on sanjis haki development.
And to add after fighting Black maria sanji wanted to know where he was needed. Had to asked a beat up soldier the location of the scabbards and of momo. And was incapable of sensing any of them. Didn't know who group needed his help the most since he couldn't not sense the immediate danger. Couldn't hear the conversation any of the groups were having.
You don't seem to understand that the branch of Observation haki that allows you to avoid attacks and stop them is in fact intent sensing. Sanji dodging Katakuris attack was only due to him sensing his intentions even under such a stressful situation. When Sanji stopped Queen and Peros attack it was also an example of that since they weren't in his line of sight so the only way he could have stopped them was by sensing their killing intent, so no he does indeed posses the ability to sense intentions.
"Another variant of Kenbunshoku Haki allows its user to sense another person's intent to act in the immediate future (especially through bloodlust/killing intent within combat), allowing them to predict what someone is going to do, usually seconds prior, in what resembles a pseudo-form of precognition. However, it should not be confused with the actual, literal ability to see into the future which (as explained below) requires another level of skill entirely.
Naturally, this predictive application of Haki is highly helpful in battle, as the user, depending on their level of proficiency, may have a vastly easier time predicting the path of enemy attacks to either dodge or counter them. The more killing intent exuded by a given enemy, the more predictable their attacks, although great enough Kenbunshoku experts can predict enemy moves whether there is murderous intent or not".( referring to future sight)....This is off the Wiki
"The most important thing to remember is that every attack carries an intent, and a hint" - Rayleigh
Sanji not being able to activate his Armament haki is the same reason one could argue he rushed prematurely into a trap, simply put when it comes to women Sanji is easily manipulatable and often times is too overcome with emotions to make rational decisions. If Oda were to write Obv haki the way you want him to then no character would ever end up in any conflict, lets not pretend that Oda has been consistent with the way he portrays haki, especially Obv. Luffy can see the future and sense intent but he will still get hit with attacks and get caught in traps if Oda needs him to for plot purposes. "Had to asked a beat up soldier the location of the scabbards and of momo. And was incapable of sensing any of them", which proves my point that Oda isn't consistent with Obv haki and that expecting Sanji to be all knowing at all times limits what Oda can write, this does not negate the fact that Sanji's specialty is Obv haki and is more proficient at it than Zoro and maybe Luffy in certain branches. No character has shown the ability you are asking of Sanji, to know the location, intent, threat and condition of two separate groups of people no matter the situation or distance.....this is ridiculous and Sanji doesn't have to be able to do this for him to be highly skilled in Obv. "Couldn't hear the conversation any of the groups were having"...again this proves my point. Sanji was able to hear the conversation coming from the third floor in the BM situation but not this......not a Sanji issue it's just Oda deciding for Sanji not to for the storyline he has planned. Or one could say they were too far so he couldn't sense them which doesn't make him weak in Obv just puts a limit on it.....which makes sense.
One could argue that BM was hiding her intentions, a human is capable of that that's why it's easier to use Obv on an animal vs a human because one can deceive while the other cannot. BM in the field that she works in would be a master manipulator and capable of completely hiding her intentions maybe even to a point of believing her own act, this is something that cannot be ignored.
Also a gag moment doesn't lead to serious moments, if Nami punches Zoro so hard he is physically affected to the point of not being able to fight an approaching threat then that ceases to be a gag moment since it has in story purpose beyond comedy so please understand the terms you are using before using them.
I think the jailer beast in Impel down where forced to their awakening forms. Look they where more beastly rather like a Hybrid version, like Chopper monsterpoint. I think the negative side effect was that they couldn't transform back anymore to their human forms. So probably half of what we would get if Zoans activate Awakening.
Be honest I didn't either expect for Ulti to have awakening. Probably for all flyers expect WsW. Awakening is still something rare and it should only give to the strongest members. I expect to see awakening with the calamity+Kaido. And as the only flyer probably WsW.
