First of all I'd just like to state how terribly scared I am by noticing a whole year has gone by and the first chapter of the year was 610, wich seems like I just read 3 or 4 months ago, for someone as young as me,that was a real terrifying fact.

As for the list:

Character of the year: Shirahoshi ( rather than any SH, the most relevant character in terms of plot was definetly her)

Best plot twist: the fact that Ancient weapons can be people

Best new character : Charlotte Linlin

Best fight of the year: Sanji's inner struggle not to die from blood loss (not impressed by any fights)

Funniest moment of the year : well the blood burst from sanji that got the SH's caught by the princes, it ends up not counting cause it wasnt in 2011,but the whole sequel in wich he got blood by splatter and splash was funny.

Best surprise of the year : Zoro & Sanji seem to have haki to some degree!

Worst character: Usopp (didnt find his improvement that significant,think he fought the weakest of the gang and didnt look that impressive)

Worst new character : Ministers of the right/left

Worst fight of the year: Luffy vs Jinbei ( a small skirmish beetwen friends,but I was expecting a bit more from luffy who just learned haki)

Worst surprise of the year : out of all the SH's,luffy was actually the one who got damaged twice,once by Kyouzo and once by Hodi, I was expecting to see the same old reckless luffy but when it got to fighting,I was expecting him to be a bit more overwhelming.

2011 was a damn boring year, but at least it had a decent finish.

Character of the year: The Seakings

Best plot twist: the fact that seakings are intelligent

Best new character : The masked guy with the big sword

Best fight of the year: Aokiji vs. Akainu. This fight should have been shown INSTEAD OF ALL OTHER FIGHTS WE SAW THIS YEAR.

Funniest moment of the year : Sanji jeallous when Chopper laid on Robin's lap.

Best surprise of the year : Hyozou didn't join, although some people were sooo sure about that

Worst character: Hody. Most boring villain ever.

Worst new character : Tom's brother. What the hell was he good for?

Worst fight of the year: Luffy vs. VdD

Worst surprise of the year : It turned out, that the candy factory was actually producing candy and that BM is actually only interested in candy. What a piece of... Next annoying villain in sight.

• Best moment of the year;
Everything related to the ponoglyph

• Character of the year;
Robin and Brook, but out of those two, I guess Robin. If it wasn't for her we had no connection to the ponoglyph. Hence this arc would have been completely useless. Also she and Brook had the best skill advancement in the past two years. Every other character were predictable and unimpressive.

• Best plot twist;
Poseidon! A unexpected Oda worth twist. Truly didn't saw that coming.

• Best new character;
If I had to select, if would be Fukaboshi.

• Best fight of the year;
Akainu vs AoKiji

• Funniest moment of the year
None! Well Im kind of frustrated just thinking about this arc, but I guess it had some funny moments. I just cant recall any.

• Best surprise of the year;
AoKiji leaving the MHQ

• Shame of the year;
FI Arc as a whole. By far the worst arc in One Piece. I went hiatus (break) on One Piece for couple of weeks.

• Worst new character;
Every villain. They failed in strength, mentality and dialogues. Truly disappointing villains.

• Worst fight of the year;
Every seen fight.

• Worst surprise of the year.
Oda stalling and stretching the arc.

• Best moment of the year
Fishman Island arc ending.
• Character of the year
Luffy, for sure. Declaring a war on a Yonkou is epic after all.
• Best plot twist
Poseidon, no doubts.
• Best new character
Fukaboshi. I really liked that character and openly said I wanted him joining the Strawhats.
• Best fight of the year
Brook. Who expected Ice?
• Funniest moment of the year
I can't remember any on particular.
• Best surprise of the year
Joy Boy.
• Shame of the year
Hodi Jones.
• Worst new character
Hodi Jones.
• Worst fight of the year

• Worst surprise of the year
This arc.

Best moment of the year: Luffy & Zoro both decrying hero status, I Want Meat!

Character of the year: Zeo this dude was funny as hell even when he got turned to an old man, he took it all in his stride

Best plot twist: Madame Shirley being Arlongs sister, the crew hasnt shown any reactions to this(they were hiding in Megalo at the time of the reveal)

Best new character: I think he slipped under many peoples radars but Aladdins charisma had people making theories about him whenever they were unsure what was gonna happen with a chapter.

Best fight of the year: I liked how Usopp & Chopper messed up Daruma & Dosun especially the exploding grass

Funniest moment of the year: Jinbe wanting to name the rescue operation

Best surprise of the year: Aokiji leaving the Marines

Shame of the yeat: The Fishman Island Dojo never being introduced into the story

Worst character: Den, Toms brother was spetacularly unuseful.

Worst new character: Hodi Jones, he grew up on the island protected by Whitebeard & a step away from the New World, you would think he'd have a better takeover plan, respect for the strength of REAL New World calibre pirates & his motivaton was pisspoor.

Worst fight of the year: Robin & Nami vs New Fishman Fodders, especially Robin getting Hammond who Luffy had already worked over

Worst surprise of the year: Hyouzou ending up getting fodderized, Luffy after 2 years gave him props that just skyrocketed hopes for him he should've maintained his swords at the least

It was an average year, but I learnt enough in the arc to not hate it as much as other posters, still my least favourite arc.

Luffy deciding to tame the kraken, then naming him Surume (dried shredded squid. yum!)

• Character of the year;
Jinbe - he's the only one that had any character development :(

Franky asking Chopper to shrink a little because he's bigger than Shogun Franky.

Close second - Hyouzou managing to poison Luffy but rolled over and died against Zoro after his ES upgrade.

Hyouzou - Hyped up then big let down

• Worst new character;
Van der Decken - what a waste of an allusion to nautical lore...

• Worst fight of the year;
Luffy vs Hody

• Worst surprise of the year.
Oda making it very clear that Hody had no business being a real villian...

• Best moment f the year;
Luffy challenging Big Mam
• Character of the year;
Luffy.
• Best plot twist;
Weakhoshi being the Poseidon
• Best new character;
Shirahoshi. Seriously a whiny, crybaby, giant mermaid is one of the ancient weapons...woah!
• Best fight of the year;
Brook vs Zeo. Brook's speeches during the fight were just hilariously amazing.
• Funniest moment of the year
SANJI. He's the funniest moment. Hell Memories, anyone? XD
• Best surprise of the year;
Okey, since I put already Poseidon in the plot twist, I'd put Aokiji leaving the Marines here.
• Shame of the year;
Caribou
• Worst character
Caribou. Eek! So slimy, I just can't take him.
• Worst new character;
Caribou.
• Worst fight of the year;
Caribou vs Mugiwaras
• Worst surprise of the year
No new nakama.

I voted 8. Unlike most who laments about this arc, I actually enjoyed it. Most prolly because I read this as a whole arc (i took some break from OP and got back just recently) and didn't had to experience the pain of waiting for every chapter and then taking a break and everything.. And plus, I'm just really happy that the Mugiwaras are back! They are still the best thing about OP.

I was lazy, but this guy wrote everything I wanted to write so I'll just rob his post! Besides the break I even voted 8..... Just to add, Sanji thinking about how one day he ran out of places to run and then he had to fly, tha was really the funniest thing of the whole year!

January 09, 2012, 04:34 PM
• Best moment of the year;
the moment Whitebeard is shown protecting Fishman Island and telling the enemies to leave his friends alone.

• Character of the year;
Zoro kicked everythings ass.....this wasn't always neccessarily a good thing, but he still kicked everythings ass.

• Best plot twist;
I guess it would be Fisher Tiger revealing that deep down he still hated humans and would never get over his hatred. That was definitely a good moment, but maybe thats more of a character development than a plot twist....I don't know, not a big fan of FI Islands plot.

• Best new character;
If Fisher Tiger counted as new, I might say him....I kinda liked Madam Shirley, King Neptune and Shirahoshi too though. Hard to say.

• Best fight of the year;
They all for the most part sucked but Luffy using Red Hawk was an awesome surprise.

• Funniest moment of the year
All of Zeo's funny made-up attacks

• Best surprise of the year;
Aokiji going rogue and fighting Akainu

• Shame of the year;
Hyouzou. Oda hyped him up as the most powerful swordsman on FI Island, and he was even able to block Luffy's jet pistol and simultaneously poison him, though Luffy was immune to it thanks to Magellan. And then he gets one-shot like a bitch even after taking pills....Zoro didn't even show off a new move. Only villain I actually expected not to be a weakling.

• Worst character
Queen Otohime, those three princes,( they look extremely ugly even for OP, especially the one that sings and the one that dances(which is extremely annoying and stupid btw)), the NFP(except Zeo and I kinda liked Ikaros), and I actually liked Van Der Decken until I realized his concept is incredibly similiar to Absalom....and the fact that Hodi Jones is a clone of Arlong literally on steroids does not help.

• Worst new character;
Queen Otohime. Can't stand her. Her ability to completely ignore all the things humans have done and push so hard for everyone to forgive the humans and go live above sea was too much.....its unrealistic. Her crying scenes and scenes yelling about how fishman need to go live in the sun annoyed me....is living underwater really that horrible for fishmen? And theres still alot of racism in the human world against fishmen, I would understand completely if they didn't want to go above sea. Oda was definitely inspired by Martin Luther King when he made her character, but I felt like King's message and focus was a bit different, and liked his a lot more. Otohime didn't do a good job of addressing the hatred fishmen had against humans, and helping them get over it.

• Worst fight of the year;
They were all horrible. They were all too short to be considered a fight, and there shouldn't have been such a long delay in them happening when they were just one-shot fights. All of the abilities of the NFP were rehashed. The only thing cool about them was the ending to each of them, which again considering how quick they were dealt with, really shouldn't have came after such a painfully slow delay. And most of those that came before the war were offscreen or barely shown.

• Worst surprise of the year.
Hody Jones having no reason to hate humans. Don't get me wrong, it's a very fitting trait for his character and villain. But the fact that Oda ended on a cliffhanger of Fukaboshi saying he knew Hodi's "true form" and then making us wait two chapters to hear what Fukaboshi was talking about only for it to be that revelation.....what the hell was Oda thinking? That needed one page to be explained. There was no need to create mystery and suspension around it, and call it Hodi's "true form" making it sound like it would be some interesting new development. You should've just shown Hodi answering Fukaboshis question right after it was posed to him....its honestly not a surprising development of his character at all. Neither was Hodi being revealed to be the one that shot Otohime.

• Best moment f the year; Luffy using red hawk for the first time
• Character of the year; I gotta give this one to zoro, he was the most beast this year... and hell, every year at that XD
• Best plot twist; finding out shirahoshi was posidon
• Best new character; fisher tiger
• Best fight of the year; I'm gonna give it to brook vs. zeo, cause Brook dosn't really have alot of fights under his belt and I liked his new ability
• Funniest moment of the year; Luffy WILL NOT share his MEAT! or "NOOO! My crew! I've lost all my crew to the craken!!! Zoro: they look like jellyfish. *
• Best surprise of the year; Aikainu vs Ajoki (sorry if misspelled)
• Shame of the year; how lame hodi jones was
• Worst character; none who were alread introduced...
• Worst new character; HODI MOTHER F*CKING JONES
• Worst fight of the year; can't think of any to be honest
• Worst surprise of the year; Finding out hodi jones was such a weak ass villan on so many accounts

Am I the only one who liked red hawk? XD Really this wasn't the best in OP, and its kind of a shame considering the all come back here, but aw well, May this year be a great one for OP!! Big mam's a'commin!

I actually thought also that he's really new character. I felt that he's somewhat familiar. But when I checked onepiece.wikia, it said there that his first appearance was only in chapter 600. And I that makes him a new character.

The length of the arc

zelllogan
January 16, 2012, 02:18 PM
I gave the whole year 4 out of 10: Below average as a manga. And I think I was still nice.

As for the list:

Character of the year: Zoro. Easily the most impressive character this year. He is the strawhat who gave the strongest impression

Best plot twist: [Evil Mode=On] Oda admitting his mistake concerning the surface/length of Fishman Island. I remember the reactions of the fans on the forum when I tried to explain that Oda did a mistake. It gave a whole new meaning to Blind Fanboyism to me. [Evil Mode=Off]

Best new character : The new Buggy: Caribou. I know he was introducted end of 2010 but we trully discover him in 2011. The simple fact that the new trash character is a logia speaks volume about the New World

Best fight of the year: None

Funniest moment of the year : Luffy who basically say that he would understand Big Mam if it was meat instead of candy

Best surprise of the year : [Evil Mode=On] Jinbei not joining immediatly ...[Evil Mode=Off]

Worst character: The entire fishmen race: clueless about the world when they are in the center of it, extremely weak, helpless, weird design,...

Worst new character : Hodi. Worst villain in recent shounen history. Period.

Worst fight of the year: Hyozou vs Zoro. Hyozou was hyped by Luffy when he said that he was strong but in the end he was a joke. In fact, he was so weak that I consider Luffy's remark to be a blunder from Oda

Worst surprise of the year : I just can't decide among all the possibilities: Hodi being the real villain, Sanji nosebleed getting old, the way Fisher Tiger died, ...


Edit: I forgot about shame of the year, the arc started more than a year ago and this is a "transition" arc ?

hoeru
January 16, 2012, 03:59 PM
Best moment of the year:
Luffy taking out more than half of the New Fishman Pirates with Haoushoku and standard Gear 3.

Character of the year:
Shirahoshi, by baring the secret of who killed her mother for years.

Best plot twist:
Straw Hats freeing Shirahoshi's brothers and Neptune. Everything worked as planned. :D

Best new character:
Shyarly (introduced in ch.610) - she simply ROCKS!

Best fight of the year:
Zoro vs. Hyouzou

Funniest moment of the year:
Sanji trying to rescue Robinclone from Luffy and Jinbe...

Best surprise of the year:
Shirahoshi being able to call Sea Kings (in the flashback)

Shame of the year:
Sanji receiving Okama blood donation.

Worst character:
Caribou

Worst new character:
Daruma, annoying as hell.

Worst fight of the year:
Vander Decken vs. Hody Jones

Worst surprise of the year:
Arlong really being an idiotic racist ever since. Can't see how he really is related to Shyarly ...

what's the different beetween surprise and plot twist? :/Imho a plot twist is a serious 180° in plot, which throws everything around. While a suprise does not have the same grave impact on the story.

For instance Shira being Poseidon, as u stated would be a plot twist. While Hodi and his gang turning old a surprise. But not necessarily a pot affecting moment.

Thats at least my understanding. btw I rly like this thread.
