Bartolomeo is fawning over Sabo now; does he not realize him and Luffy switched or does he love Sabo also since Sabo is his hero's brother?
February 05, 2014 07:59 AM
I was kind of hoping for "We need to get this ball of tabasco in her mouth" to be a hero moment for Usopp. Maybe still an opportunity there?
February 04, 2014 06:19 PM
I think it's generally assumed to be Shiryuu.
We don't know how BB's fleet is organized, his original four might have the first four numbers with the ID recruits given later numbers. Or perhaps some...

He resigned as an admiral ~30 years ago and was serving as an instructor (what Garp and Sengoku are doing now).
The movie happened as soon as they entered the new world (of course, so did Punk...

I don't see a stripe on the office-guy's hat: http://www.mangapanda.com/103-56333-19/one-piece/chapter-595.html
Also CP-0 guy's dips down in the front. Hard to tell for office-guy's, but it...
February 02, 2014 01:18 PM
I think it could be this, but it would be kind of weird if someone got to be an admiral primarily because of a powerful item and not their own power. If someone strong beat him and took the sword,...
February 01, 2014 09:27 PM
Because they have similar (but not identical) hats? I'm not going to say it's impossible but I'd call it far from obvious.
January 30, 2014 10:41 AM
By "all evidence," you mean 3 words written in 1998, back when Oda thought the series would end in 2002.
No one has been shown displaying haki as outrageous as Shanks'. His haoshoku doesn't...
January 30, 2014 10:19 AM
I don't think Luffy will beat DD this arc, not when Sanji was helpless and Law barely scratched him. The SH will certainly destroy DD's organization and free Dressrosa, but DD will be snatched up and...
January 30, 2014 10:16 AM
Has Oda confirmed that Shogun is hereditary in Wano? It could be a position more like Hokage.
It could also just be a kid playing dress up. Plenty of little girls without royal blood still pretend...
January 29, 2014 09:42 PM
It's definitely them, but it just looks like a parry/dodge to me. Great page though, loving seeing DD pissed off.
January 28, 2014 05:37 PM
His friends didn't forget about him either, so he's not a toy.
My best guess for the "[sound of a ] flag [waving] fruit" is maybe a windy force blowing away from him at all times so that...
January 28, 2014 10:45 AM
Oda confirmed in SBS that Sengoku's is also a Mythical Zoan (Human fruit model: Daibutsu).
I'm trying to picture what a flag fruit would do though and I'm coming up blank. Hopefully we'll see it...
January 25, 2014 08:17 AM
The comparison isn't "Shichibukai exist vs. they don't;" it's "Shichibukai have some slight fealty towards the government vs. they have hostility towards it." Do they drive the government nuts? Yes....
January 23, 2014 03:45 PM
That's the entire point I'm trying to make. Buggy is the only shichibukai to get the invitation based on his crew. For the others, the WG doesn't care about their crew. The WG didn't invite...
January 23, 2014 02:24 PM
Compare these to Roger. Roger had Buggy in his crew and that didn't stop him. He also conquered the Grand Line in 3 years (though I don't know what he was doing before he left Reverse Mountain with...
January 23, 2014 02:11 PM
Blackbeard & Mihawk - at or near the same level as the Yonkou
Doflamingo, Kuma, and Hancock - all 3 have downright stupid DFs and two of them have conqueror's haki. I have very little doubt that...
January 23, 2014 01:54 PM
I don't mean his deal, I mean the reason for his offer. Buggy was invited for his relationships and crew - the others weren't. Doflamingo, Law, and Hancock were invited because the WG wanted them....
January 22, 2014 05:34 PM
So when Shanks attacked Kaido and his army of Zoan users, he did ok for himself because Beckmann, Roux, and Yasopp can take on Kaido?
Yes, a Yonkou's crew is important and part of why the WG fears...
January 22, 2014 11:56 AM
Don't forget Pica is there too. The SH definitely need some help. Maybe Thunder Soldier -> Kyros vs Pica and the coliseum losers vs. the marines?
My impression was that it's a weight to make...
January 18, 2014 09:55 AM
Koala is the "substitute" instructor. He's assuming that Hack is the main instructor.
January 16, 2014 10:21 PM
The "lift" Luffy, Zoro, and Kinemon are headed to, this is the same structure that Franky went to, yes (though likely a different entrance)? So they'll probably encounter one of Diamante's other...
January 16, 2014 02:15 PM
No, I don't think it's fair to assume that Sabo is still head and shoulders above Luffy (the difference between age 10 and age 7 is quite a bit bigger than 22 vs 20), but I also don't think it's fair...
January 15, 2014 08:22 AM
I agree, but what I'm wondering is if that's an impact below him or a splash. The "swim swim fruit" or whatever could be pretty strong if you can throw your enemies under the sidewalk-water and then...
January 14, 2014 12:43 PM
And especially don't reuse themes that had already been explored in the last fake spoiler. The fakers really, really want Big Mom on that ship.
It's kind of weird to me that Bastille would be so...
January 14, 2014 08:57 AM
Haha, for a moment I thought you were suggesting One Piece came from Europe; I was a little concerned for your sanity. I follow now.
Yeah, it's definitely not a big deal. Oda drew what he wanted,...
January 13, 2014 09:52 AM
The Nazis also rotated the symbol 45 degrees (such that if you filled it in, it would be a diamond rather than a square). Whitebeard's is squared on the bottom like the Asian source.
January 06, 2014 06:05 PM
I don't understand why people latch on to Mihawk's "World's Strongest Swordsman" title so voraciously, but ignore Shanks "title" as a Yonkou. No one calls him that out of pity. If having one arm...
January 01, 2014 01:46 PM
I don't really see what you're trying to say. I wasn't asking to compare VAs or the monster trio, I'm pointing out that idle speculation about who is stronger drives a solid chunk of the posts in...
January 01, 2014 10:59 AM
Everyone who has ever used the phrase "VA-level" or argued over the relationship between Luffy, Zoro, and Sanji.
I don't think it's a resource of any kind, it was just fun to do for board games...

Also this forum only allows one poll per thread, so rather than start 4 threads at a time, I would probably just use google docs for voting.
December 31, 2013 02:32 PM
I thought it would be cool to do something like this for OP characters: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/144021/round-08-bgg-top-100-promotionrelegation-battle
Basically the characters will be...
December 31, 2013 02:31 PM
Edit: Bah, didn't think this actually posted due to a poll snafu. I can just put Round 1 into here later.
December 31, 2013 01:07 PM
That makes Meadows a red herring also. "Who is this mysterious fellow, so unique in his lack of page time? He must be a huge, important surprise! Oh, turns out Oda fooled me: he's just a noob with a...
December 30, 2013 08:39 PM
Ha, I'd be down with that explanation.
I think a logia would be more useful in that case though if he needs to put himself back together. Would it satisfy your theories if he was a metal logia,...
December 30, 2013 05:15 PM
I'm talking about this: http://d220.diamond.fastwebserver.de/series/OnePiece/0690-015.png
I agree there could be more to it, but I think the Vergo aspect is most likely just Vergo beating a young...
December 30, 2013 03:11 PM
When Doflamingo narrated the leadup to Vergo's fight with Law, I thought it was pretty clear that Vergo had simply beat the snot out of Law in the past. I suppose he was vaguer than that, but I...

Step 1: Go watch Kung Fu Hustle (it's basically a live action anime: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4plHceV0Zk) (preferably subbed though)

Who is "he", Zeff? Where do you see any confirmation that Zeff is a revolutionary?
December 28, 2013 02:26 PM
It's Doflamingo cutting someone's leg off, I thought that was pretty self explanatory.
Hadn't noticed that was Sabo, just thought it was more from Gatz. I still think it could suggest a Kryos...
December 28, 2013 11:43 AM
Certainly a precedent for that.
December 28, 2013 09:08 AM
Gatz has "heard of this happening before." Is he talking about a multi-KO with no clear winner in general, or people slowly dropping as in these circumstances? Can people remember enough about Kyros...
December 26, 2013 01:22 PM
Bummed not to see Franky vs. Senor Pink this chapter.
"OMG, it's Enel!" is my favorite running joke. It's pretty hard to confuse this for "people keeling over one by one."
It looks like the...
December 21, 2013 11:04 AM
Out of curiosity, why is the next chapter coming in 1.5 weeks instead of 1 or 2? Is that typical of the holidays? Is it just to avoid New Years the week after?
December 20, 2013 11:07 AM
But he isn't anymore. Sabo put on the Lucy disguise and Luffy left. When the next round of the tournament starts, Sabo will be fighting and Luffy won't be.
December 13, 2013 12:38 PM
Sabo regrets that he wasn't there to help and feared Luffy would hate him for it. Koala tells him not to beat himself up over it as he might not have been able to save Ace even if he had been there.
