Yeah a lot of this stuff is fresh in my head bc I only got into OP this year and just binged everything. I kinda just noticed there were a few points where the crew’s powerlevels just spike out of nowhere to meet whatever obstacles they’re about to face. But its a shounen 🤷. Luckily the actual world building and humor in the show is good enough I can just enjoy it for what it is.
That makes sense. I guess for me I keep seeing people put Oda on this high pedestal as a writer compared to other shonen mangakas so I can't help but scrutinize the writing and consistency to see if such praise is justified.
It's just baffling to me that there are still people who want to look at bounties and titles as 100% accurate representations of power levels and then get ass mad when Oda once again shows that that isn't the way he is using those concepts. Like use your brains at least then. Also, most One Piece fans are probably in their mid 20s to their mid 30s by now.
Well in that case I 100% concur. Frankly though I think most of those in the fandumb are primarily in One Piece for agenda pushing, and honestly I do put some blame on Oda for being too secretive and vague with elements in the story that it leaves more than enough room for headcanon to dominate the One Piece fanbase.
My current One Piece power scaling based on the way story is progressing
Lmk if you guys agree
1 Dracule Mihawk
2 Fleet Admiral Akainu
3 Green Bull
5 Monkey D Dragon/Shanks/Blackbeard
6 Admiral Fujitora
7 Monkey D Luffy
8 Yonko Kaido
9 Roronoa Zoro
10 Old Out of Prime Rayleigh
11 Old out of Prime Garp
12 Old out of prime Sengoku
13 Big Mom
Real talk: The biggest disappointment in this arc is the lack of development Kaido got as a character. Like we don't know shit about him. Compare that to Doflamingo who probably is the best developed antagonist in the manga. It's really a let down.
Fujitora betrays them and gets beaten similarly to Marco vs King and Queen
Sabo vs Akainu (fire vs magma rematch)
Fujitora vs Kizaru (gravity vs light)
Ryokugyu might follow suit Fujitora too but need to see more of his personality and goals
Dragon vs Akainu (I assume Air logia for Dragon)
Sabo vs Ryokugyu
Fujitora vs Kizaru
This one could work too, Gorosei vs Rooftop 5
Unsure where to fit Kong into all this. In 2) Dragon vs Kong could work too. But isn't he supposed to be out of prime anyway he was Fleet Admiral before even Sengoku, then again he may have not retired but simply became commander in chief, mixed.
In any case the 4 Rev Commanders with Ivanmov are probably gonna be occupied with CP0
