General & Others World building: good or bad ?

#22
Oda's worldbuilding is good. The concept of devil fruits, the uniqueness of the one piece world map, bizarre islands and weather, these all make the reader constantly curious on what the next island's gonna be like. It's not perfect of course, as I find some grand line 'islands' pretty meh.

There are occasionally odd moments that just do not make much sense within the context of the verse.

For example, the ignorance regarding devil fruits from the East Blue populace is baffling considering that nearly every big name, top tier character in the verse has a devil fruit and has their faces plastered on either Bounty Posters or a newspaper franchise that covers the whole globe.

Everyone in East Blue gets Luffy's bounty poster regardless of whether they live in the back arse of nowhere like the Dadan Family or Syrup Village. They should know of the Yonko/Admirals along with their devil fruit powers, that stuff is common knowledge.

Another oddity is when nearly everyone during Jaya Arc claims that the possibility of Sky Island existing is a complete fantasy. Come Sky Island Arc, Gan Fall casually knows what Blue Sea dwellers are and talks of other routes from the Grand Line to the White Sea.

Again, why is there colossal public ignorance in regards to the existence of any Sky Islands when there are known routes to them along with globe spanning information services?
It feels like Oda changed his mind about The One Piece world being a "world of mystery" instead making it a pretty Interconnected world

Which makes sense when you remember that One Piece was supposed to be far shorter

Actually is not World Building. OP only has a big world. And that's it. The only moment it was really a World Building was all the scenario about Teach vs Ace that leads to Marineford. Besides that it seems the whole World is stop waiting for Luffy to come a do something interesting in their lifes.


Look at Oden's flashback. Roger needed Oden because he was the only person that could read Poneglyphs for him. What about Ohara? Roger travelled all island, he didn't know Ohara people could read poneglyphs?
Ohara, 800 years after Void Century reading Poneglyphs. No one ever left the place and made family around the world?
Wano, only Kozuki family knows how to read? Again, no one is teaching others how to do it?
WG are not interested in Poneglyphs? Where was the Red Poneglyphs before Yonkos puts their hands on them? Why WG didn't had them?

Mera Mera no Mi, suppose to be powerful Logia. No Supernova interested on it? No Yonko besides Teach? No WB's remaining pirates? Marines/WG didn't sent someone really capable of winning that tournament?
Post automatically merged:


BM revenge against Morgan makes no sense. He just wrote the events. Luffy is doing all that stuff.
Kidd is not Law. Law made an alliance with Luffy. Kidd didn't.
they were killed before he became pirate king

@Charlotte Sky please correct me if I am wrong because I don't want to put words into your mouth. It seems that your complaints aren't Oda's world building but more how the world connects and reacts to Luffy?

I like the world building but worry that Oda won't give a satisfactory answer to the mysteries and build up before the series ends.

I don't mind that Luffy is the chosen one of this manga. Shanks giving Luffy Roger's straw hat in chapter 1 was a blatant passing of the torch moment. Does he really need to have a connection to Joy Boy? He has also saved countries, but he doesn't stay behind to help rebuild any of them. Yet he gets all of the credit.

No they weren't. And Roger were more than a year into that quest for Poneglyphs. That with Oden but he was searching someone like him even before that.

Bro, is it just me or sometimes I thought you guys are the same person? Similar names + similar avatar letters and colors.

First, you don’t even talk about world Building.

Second, you don’t have any Argumentation.

Third, it’s hilarious how much time you spend on hating and flaming one piece, while obviously don’t liking it.

What’s your goal here? Convince people to dislike something they enjoy? It’s pathetic.
All I see is you crying instead of countering my arguments

“You are a hater “, “you have no arguments “,” you are hilarious “

not just you but also many others here. Even those replying with “good” didn’t even bother to explain .

One piece is trash tier manga and oda is trash tier writer and I am being OBJECTIVE here but you fan boys will remain fan boys I guess

This is a One Piece Fan Forum.
You aren’t objective, you also have no arguments, you literally just repeat one or two buzzwords, but this is no argumentation.

but it is sad that you put so much of your time in trying to make something bad others enjoy. Let people enjoy it.

1- everyone joining Luffy Fan Club;

- Hancock joined the fan club and it ruined her Potential…same for kuma the tyrant potential …jinbe … crocodile potential …mihawk potential

- supernova joining Luffy fan club… oda didn’t even bother to try…at least you could have left drake stay under cover you garbage writer but no he seems to be insisting on letting ALL of them joining Luffy fan club

- revolutionary army is under Luffy command

- Almost all marines joining the fan club …except for Sakazuki, kizaru & greenbull who should be joining in the end after they know truth about world government…SO MUCH for that complex civil war in the marines ranks and then having their OWN agenda…oda the potential crusher

- big mom pirates joining Luffy fan club…it all started with katakuri and soon big mom gonna join the fan club after she becomes O-Lin…
whitebeard & red hair pirater under Luffy command is not enough for oda

- germa 66 potential…joined Luffy fan club at the end

- ALL wano samurai joined Luffy fan club … oda couldn’t even let kyoshiro & ashura remain antagonists

- Yamato potential… joined the Luffy fan club

- another million tribes, countries , pirates etc joined the fan club
nothing to do with worldbuilding.
2- LUFFY LUFFY LUFFY

- everything is around Luffy and everything is for Luffy and he is shoved in our faces 24/7 and it doesn’t help when his character is so trash; no development, meet oppressed princess > gives him meat> tells him story of the oppressed people > doesn’t understand shit> Beat the villain with asspull > feast > repeat

- not only his grandfather is one of the top marine but his father is the leader of the revolutionary army …his brother is the son of pirate king and top commander of whitebeard and he came back again to shit on the revolutionary army as sabo
his in the one piece logo
His the main character and i like how calling him trash but with your lack understanding what makes good world building from this thread i cant take your opinion serious about what makes a good character.
3- off paneling the world

-payback war ? Off paneled… reverie ? Off paneled … baltigo incident ? Off paneled… big mom pirates vs fish men and germa 66 ? Off paneled… and the long lost continues
this doesnt takeaway from one pieces world building again this has nothing to do with world building.
4- extreme focus on FILLER characters for milking and dragging purposes instead of the established character like supernova and fleshing them out

- Rebecca and her garbage plot was nightmare…the dwarfs running around … the filler samurai like kawamatsu took 100 chapters to reveal only to turn out to be the most irrelevant character introduced in wano …punk hazard kids running around… smile fodders etc etc etc
none of these characters are filler everyone of them has a purpose to the story and the worldbuilding of one piece, worldbuilding is about fleshing out the world and you need people to fill the world and you cant have boring group of no names to fill world with.
- meet the oppressed princess (nami clone)
Where was the oppressed princess in Orange Town (nami doesny count),Baratie ,Loguetown ,Whisky Peak,Little Garden,Drum Island,Jaya,Long Ring Long Land,Water 7 Arc,Enies Lobby (robin doesnt count),Thriller Bark,every in Summit War Saga and Zou Arc so yeah thats alot of arcs that dont have oppressed princess
sanji meets the girl then leaves the crew then gets fooled by her then she became an ally
This has happened twice and how many arcs have there been.
- Luffy loses round 1 & 2 but wins the third
thats been done couple times not many.
zoro vs second strongest…sanji vs third strongest
Baratie: zoro fought the strongest character in the arc sanji fought the 2nd strongest charater.
Arlong: its ambiguous who was the strongest between arlongs henchman.
Loguetown: there no real major all out fights.
Whisky Peak:the main fight of was zoro vs baroque works members.
Little Garden: zoro did a one hit ko and sanji didnt fight
Drum Island: niether zoro or sanji fought.
Jaya: they didnt figth
Sky island: sanji teamed up with luffy,
Long Ring Long Land: they team up together.
Summit War Saga: didnt get solo fights or wearnt in it
dressrosa: sanji didnt have a fight.
WCI: sanji fought couple people.
