And why are you ignoring what I've told about the process of making books? OPBlue was released in between Volumes 24 and 25. Blackbeard's name and those of his crewmen Van Augur Doc Q and Jesus Burgess were revealed in Vol.25. And as databooks reflect the state of knowledge based on the tankobon - in this case Volumes 01 to 24 - it's overly clear that Blackbeard's name wasn't mentioned in the databook, as the name wasn't mentioned in the Summary of Vol.25, either. It's not an error in the databook. Oda just held the name back as it was about to be revealed.
There's clearly nothing to doubt about the canocity of databooks at this point, just because Oda's attitude has changed to reveal names in databooks some years later.
That's basically the same error, the Anime creators have been done upon Robin's wrong eye color - because of an error of Oda where he simply forgot to color her eyes on the colored cover of chapter 160.
I BELIEVE WHATEVER ODA TELLS ME TO BELIEVE! THAT IS GOOD ENOUGH!
i read the manga and watch the anime and if its not in the manga im like hey thats filler and think no more of it.
I think the only grey zone is Strong World because the main character appeared in one panel of the manga but honestly making it canon would only weaken the story for me so I prefer to put it out of it. It does not seem like Oda will refer to it again anyway. The databooks added values are only some fodders names so there is very few arm considering them canon and I can't remember when was the last time a SBS said something really interesting.
Anyway, I don't look for quality in fillers; I only want to be entertained.
The "Lol?" in your post was unnecessary too since it gives a mocking tone to your post. I apologize for the bold and capital though.Quote:
never watched an anime episode or a movie, just some fights that weren't as good as in the manga.
only manga 100%.
What appears/is stated in the manga ftw!
Usually manga only (including SBS). Once there is anime involved it gets somewhat messy, so I usually stick to what is being written on paper. Databooks are an exception since I came to the
quite shockingrealization that in many mangas and animes the information in the databook is not absolute. Best OP example would be that in one databook they said that Cutty Flam was dead and *surprise surprise* it later was contradicted by the manga, saying that it was Franky all along.
So, in a nutshell, manga only for cannon, anything else (anime/ movies/ databooks) for headcanon.
The anime I use as a way to see how an attack would look like in real time if I hadn't imagined it myself or to hear Robins voice. Actually, I mostly watch the Anime to hear and watch Robin (would be obsessed with it if Booney was more involved), that and a side of seeing cool attacks etc. Anything else like detours or passage of time I think of as filler (say an additional attack that was not in the Manga, Filler)
Apparently, there's much misinformation about the One Piece databooks' contents among fandom. Cutty Flam nor Franky were mentioned before One Piece Yellow, and in that Franky's background was pretty much summarized what happened in the manga. Iceburg thought that Franky died the night, he tried to stop the sea train.

Either way, databooks aren't complete information, but information that manga has presented so far. There's no way to tell whether Oda will go from "this character died" to "this character survived!" two or three databooks later. Databooks only tell us what happened up to the time the databook was written with some additional info. I honestly don't understand why people keep saying to completely trust the databooks.
Yeah it's like people completely ignore that data books would never spoil important plot points and of course the editor/designer might make a mistake here or there. Neither Oda or his assistants are unfailable.

So, if Sabo is still alive, that means the databook was wrong. Therefore, never use databook in debates again, Oda somehow gets his own manga wrong.
Though in the next databook, we'll likely see Sabo being alive if it's true and what happened after his "death" if it's explained in the story.
