    I agree. Fairy Tail's timeskip was really weird, although I found the following 3 month one to be even more of an "epic moment" and twist. In Bleach it was theorized for months if Ginjo was a good or bad guy. Many were convinced he was a bad guy despite him showing no signs of being it, so the question was "why and how", when that was answered it wasn't really that surprising. It was a twist, but it was predicted. It wasn't really a twist like Aizen's incredible plot twist, that was totally unpredictable and epic in comparison.

    Re: Best Plot Twist/Epic Moment

    Fairy Tail timeskip was '*ù¨µ$=:^' (censured). It was just an author giving up on the current story in order to do a reboot because he knew he wasn't going anywhere. It was badly done.

    The bleach nomination is just the least understable for me: Hello everyone , is Aizen ringing a bell ? How can you seriously consider Ginzou being bad as the best plot twist when in the same manga you have Aizen betraying everyone in soul society ?

    So, I voted for Blood Monday but I do consider this category as the least interesting one among the awards. Most nominations were due to a global memory loss with people unable to remember something that happened more than 6 months ago. Don't get me wrong, some recent events deserve a nomination but not that many. IMO, There are so many more events from One piece & Bleach that were more surprising than what was nominated. I just don't get it.

    For Bleach:
    - Aizen being bad
    - Ichigo's father being a shinigami
    - Ichida's father being the real last quincy
    - Yammy being the strongest espada
    - ...

    Are you seriously telling me that "Bad Ginzou" is more surprising or interesting than all those other ones ? I wasn't even surprised personally. I saw that one coming.

    For one piece:
    - Dragon revealed as the father AND Garp as the grandfather IN LESS THAN 15 pages
    - Oda splitting THE WHOLE CREW and leaving LUFFY ALONE for several arcs
    - Robin joining
    - ...

    Spoiler show


    For Naruto:
    - Gaara death & resurrection
    - Kakashi revealing Mangekyou Sharingan
    - Itachi REVEALED TO BE GOOD
    - Tobi revealed to be the main villain within Akatsuki !!!!
    - ...

    Spoiler show


    NB: I hope I won't be moderated. I did my best to stay polite ...
    NB2: It's just a comment. Feel free to disagree but I won't reply

    Re: Best Plot Twist/Epic Moment

    That's why it is not interesting for such a category to cover such a large period. Plus most of the ones you mentionned were already nominated in last year awards.

    Re: Best Plot Twist/Epic Moment

    I would go with Shirahoshi being an Ancient Weapon. I really didn't expect this. And also it was quite an interesting turn of events that might really contribute to the plot and wasn't actually a trolling in any way if we compare it to 7 years of timeskip in FT through Fairy Sphere.

    Re: Best Plot Twist/Epic Moment

    "The Lahel/Baam interraction" is by far the most important & surprising plot twist in recent shounen history.
    For the other nominations, ... well my previous post is already complete enough. I just didn't talk about Fairy Tail ... but I don't think I can talk about it without being moderated anymore

    Re: Best Plot Twist/Epic moment

    As a One Piece fan I am it was hard to vote for anything but Shiraoshi, but I finally decided myself that as a twist...it was more shocking Lahel. So my vote goes to her.

    Yes, Shiraoshi as an ancient weapon was something that only 2 people in all Mangahelpers could thought, but it was not a changing point on the story. It would be the same knowing it now or few chapters later if you get what I mean. Lahel was, in the other hand, the most shocking twist that ended the whole arc and twisted the story.

    The Sky is pouring
    The wind is blowing
    The sea looks red,
    a surging sea of flames
    looks like the entrance to hell
    'Perfect', the captain said.

    Aokiji leaving the marines shocked me so I'll vote for that.

    Re: Best Plot Twist/Epic Moment

    I don't get why itachi's release is a plot twist,rather than it I would have said "tobi is not madara",but was what itachi did really a plot twist?

    I believe the title reads "Best Plot Twist/Epic Moment"... Care to disagree with that?

    Re: Best Plot Twist/Epic Moment

    Both Aokoji and Shirahoshi had good plot twists, but for now they're more promising plot twists than actually great plot twists because we haven't seen how either will play out. Itachi was a close second place because that moment was pretty badass, but without a doubt Rachel pushing Baam out of the sphere was the most surprising moment for me in any manga this year. Beyond being shocking, that one moment redefined everything that came before it.
