I don't think you can say he cannot die, the way Blackbeard is being set up as the main villain it'd be kind of crappy if Blackbeard beat him up and then spared him.
For storyline reasons we know...

Translation thanks to skywalker6705:
Bolded the important part
With the latest chapter we got to see the awesome Smoker back in the scene with some funky new clothes, but the biggest revelation...

See that would make sense except you know he/she wouldn't be able to swim.
Sometimes you can look too much into things.

No romance, the only one I can see happening is Usopp / Kaya or whoever it is back at his homevillage.
One Piece has always been about friendship.
December 19, 2006 10:07 AM
A valuable 'treasure' at the end of the grand line.
I mean there is no way anyone can come to any conclusion about what it is at this point in the series, seems like a silly discussion to have.
December 17, 2006 08:36 PM
Maybe Shanks' mind rape is only 'turned on' against people he chooses.
December 17, 2006 08:15 PM
I think people are looking into things too much, it's simply a movie adaptation of the Alabasta arc, there won't be any drastic changes to the plot or anything; they are just revisiting it with a...
December 17, 2006 08:12 PM
I can kind of see what you mean, but wouldn't Whitebeard be just as intimidating? I would of thought that if you were part of the crew of the strongest man in the world you'd be pretty confident.
December 17, 2006 06:20 PM
I doubt Oda would go down that path, Oda took alot of inspiration from DBZ and admires Toriyama alot but downright plaguerism is just going a bit past the call of duty.
If we see Gear 4, it'll be...
December 17, 2006 06:17 PM
Well to use an example, he went toe to toe against the strongest man in the world with only one arm, and his spirit wasn't used or it wasn't visibly used. He is powerful enough without making random...
December 17, 2006 03:59 PM
Well i'd believe that but Shanks always used a one handed sword and he was ambidextrous, so he didnt really lose any advantage other than balance.
December 17, 2006 12:44 PM
Really? I personally hated the fact Shanks crippled people with his 'spirit', it just feels so lame and dragonballish, which One Piece should avoid =/.
December 17, 2006 12:14 PM
Heh heh, i'm sorry but our time together as mod and forum were short, and I must leave for greener pastures - the One Piece subforum. There were too many mods here and I offered to go over to the...
December 16, 2006 08:22 PM
So I just beat this amazing game and I implore that anyone who enjoys video gaming pick this up, it's a work of art and the best game ever released IMHO; the storytelling, gameplay, EVERYTHING - is...

It might be smaller because it's simply the start of it's creation, it might grow bigger before he lands it.
It's hard to tell from a screenshot, unfortunately.
December 16, 2006 06:03 PM
Smaller target than the heart, and harder to hit.
If it was possible to get a headshot with Raikiri Kakashi would of done it with his first attack.
December 16, 2006 05:45 PM
There was a thread a while back glasskatana made asking this question, and one of the great ideas he had I liked was the idea of Naruto using some iron/steel gauntlets; he's a brawler at heart and...
December 16, 2006 05:40 PM
Hoo boy this will be a long post.
Not at all, because you will NEVER obtain a controlled situation where there aren't outside factors. One of the players' relatives might of died the day before and...
December 16, 2006 01:03 PM
I doubt Ace vs Blackbeard will be shown (the outcome might be, but not the actual battle). And seeming as though due to storyline purposes Ace CAN'T win, I imagine that if we were to see it we'd see...
December 15, 2006 05:21 PM
When the Akatsuki Leader was the only one left alive, it would still be the Akatsuki arc.

I think i'll pass, incest is where I draw the line :p .
But it is a cute pic.
December 15, 2006 08:04 AM
The reason you don't have your Wii yet is not because Nintendo lied, it's because there is a much much higher demand than they expected.
December 15, 2006 06:16 AM
Ohhhhh, that'd be an awesome arc actually, if they are on the same level of badassery as Zabuza.
I guess I am open to the changing of my opinion ^^.
December 15, 2006 05:18 AM
Oh i'm not saying he'll fail his mission, simply that I think he'll sacrifice himself completing it.
December 15, 2006 05:16 AM
Please keep things civil, this is an interesting discussion and i'd hate to see it tainted by flamebaiting.
I'm sceptical about the relevancy of Jiraiya vs Oro in respect to Itachi but i'll allow...
December 15, 2006 05:06 AM
rabb, I like your avatar, any chance you could let me know where you got it from? ^^[br]Posted on: December 15, 2006, 05:05:36 AM_________________________________________________A soldier pill?
December 15, 2006 05:02 AM
My view on Shikamaru is thus:
He's in way over his head.
He hates responsibility and would much rather take the easy way out, but he cares about his friends. He is weak as a ninja but...
December 15, 2006 04:52 AM
Well doesn't that kind of prove his point?
Shikamaru as a character has nowhere else to go in terms of development, he's having his moment and I doubt he'll live long past that.
December 14, 2006 06:58 PM
Your logic would work but almost every other manga artist has to go through the same thing.
December 14, 2006 12:04 PM
Partially your opinion? So some of it is someone elses opinion or it's fact?
It's a matter of perspective, you see it as great cliffhangers, I see it as lack of content.
December 14, 2006 08:13 AM
An interesting possibility, and I don't think there is much left for Shikamaru to do as a character, he's had his time in the spotlight and killing Hidan would be a nice wrap up, but I don't think...
December 14, 2006 06:01 AM
And where's your evidence to back up that claim?
December 13, 2006 02:59 PM
He probably isn't an Uchiha, the information Kishi has given us and Itachi's repeated statements that they were the last of their line, means it's just those two. Itachi would know if his leader was...
December 13, 2006 09:13 AM
Strong and smart? I would of thought leadership and smarts were much more important than physical strength.
December 13, 2006 09:11 AM
Favourite character in the series, bar none.
December 13, 2006 07:03 AM
Feel free to make it an official thread, you have my blessing ^^.
December 13, 2006 06:57 AM
The issue is not that they are trying to take over the world, that's fine and it suits the Akatsuki.
The problem with it is that they are going about it in a stupid way.
If they simply unleash...
December 13, 2006 06:51 AM
I hate to be strict about things, but if i'm too lenient then people will take me for granted; for better or for worse I will strive to improve the Naruto subforum, but I need your...
December 13, 2006 06:36 AM
Are you so sure? The recent element thing reeks of retcon that Kishi came up with to try and stir things up. It's such a weird ripoff of Pokemon etc, it just kind of detracts from the experience to...
December 13, 2006 06:33 AM
Stop going off topic or there will be punishment.
I mean it.
December 12, 2006 02:47 PM
I have a nintendo Wii.
Was just playing Zelda.
I know how you feel and wish you the best of luck in finding one.
December 12, 2006 02:38 PM
Aspire to something a little more original? Like capture the nine spirits, infuse one of them in each of them and rule the world?
I came up with that in 5 seconds and it's still better than the...
December 12, 2006 11:29 AM
Lame as hell plans which have completely ruined Akatsuki for me, with the exception of Hidan, Kisame and Kakuzu.
You can't get much lamer than money.
December 12, 2006 10:39 AM
See the rest of the pitiful info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_Piece:_Unlimited_Adventure
Ok, so who's playable?...
December 12, 2006 09:27 AM
Hidan and Kakuzu? Ehhhh.
I can see Kakuzu being smart enough to run if things get bad, but Hidan is way past insane to go now. He promised to kill off 'Shikamaru and friends' last time they met...
December 12, 2006 09:07 AM
I think things have gotten too hectic for Akatsuki to be able to find new members now.
Konoha has gone on the attack and now Akatsuki are pressured to finish their work as quickly as possible, I...
December 12, 2006 09:01 AM
One of the must fun chapters in a long long time.
You combine all the buildup from the start of Water 7 as to whether Franky would join and his relationship with the strawhats, and it climaxes in...
December 12, 2006 08:53 AM
Guys you are horribly off topic, stop it or there will be trouble.
Feel free to continue the discussion in the relevant subforum.
December 11, 2006 04:11 PM
Zetsuie, I admit it, I laughed hard at that.
On topic though, I think we'll see Ino come into the fray, and Shikamaru will begin to formulate a new plan.
