    You missed the Cover stories. Oda does them very often. They usually explain what happened with certain villains(most of whom will probably reappear at some point) and some are incredibly important for plot purposes. For example the Wapol one explains where the super metal comes from which stopped Whitebeards earthquake and which Franky used to built his robot from. The Enel one is also incredibly important. It shows Enel on the moon with his new army, shows the existence of aliens, why shandians have wings and other things as well. How Hatchi met Caimy, What happened with CP9, how Ace found Blackbeard, what happend to Baroque works, how Jango and Fullbody ended up with Hina and many other things. The only two the Anime showed were the Coby and Hellmeppo one and the Buggy one.
    Before I forget it. Zeff ate his leg and Luffy stabbed himself in the eye(the scar under his eye) to show that he is a man.

    Gedatsu was last seen on the Onsen island. The current mini story is already past that point. And color pages have already been anounced for Sket Dance (spread), Bleach, Pyjama na kanojo (new series) und Kuroko no Basket, so 658 won't have color pages.
    Its out of character because they are characterized as corrupt. I'm not saying its impossible to become Just, only, that there should be a reason behind it or it makes no sense.

    Hmmm... when did I switch to reading One Piece? I think it was around Thriller Bark? I don't know, its been so long. About two years ago I started watching One Piece and rapidly ate through all the episodes so switched to the manga. Well at any rate it doesn't matter, because I started from chapter one. Though, even now I normally skip cover pages and such, just diving straight into the story. But now I'll start reading them since they seem so informative; thanks.

    So that you know the cover pages are divided in two
    • a cover story which follows a former villain or informative single covers on friends like we have at the moment
    • the strawhats cover (with Vivi and Carue) which are just fantasy covers

    They altern each others so once this one is finished, we will have the 11 strawhats ones and only then, maybe, a new cover story. It has been ages since we didn't have a real one, since there was the Strawhat separation covers and the Duo fantasy covers which messed up a bit the traditional cover schedule.

    oh thank's about the colored cover,I didn't know that. anyway, gedatsu's miniadventures ended in chapter 348,in the middle of water seven/enies lobby arc,so it's possible that we are about to see him now,since water seven has just ended.

    I don't know, its been so long. About two years ago...
    Corrupt or working as the agents they were? Is the CIA opperative corrupt for doing undercover ops? They are characterized as followers of the Absolute Justice, they worked within their options to go brutal if needed, but it's not their fault for Robin having the knowledge wanted by the WG or rather not. And yeah read their Cover Story and see that you've judged them wrongly, they were most likely doing "good" deeds for the past two years, longer than the week of so we've seen them decieve the W7 and fight at Ennies Lobby.

    Two years isn't long for a 15 year long running series. :P

    sry for the off-topic Uriel or matzik1212 or whoever is in control right now, but everyone will ignore this after tomorrow anyway, so give us a bit of leeway please.

    edit: I was against it in the past, he wasn't.^^

    Yeah about the off topic discussion i'll bear with it since we had this break and the ideas ideas about the current arc were exhausted. Plus the chapter is going to come out soon.
    Though I said i'll bear with it but i don't know about Uriel so i think it's better to stop the off topic right here.

    But you have to differ Spandam from his agents, IMHO. Spandam persuaded the Gorousei in missions to get the plans of Pluton. His agents were tools for him - as Lucci said they wanted to be tools of justice. But the latter part was crushed by Luffy so they are free to decide if they still want to be Spandam's tools or if they can create something that represents their sense of justice. They probably know what happens to failures within the World Gov. structure - Moriah is a great example therefore.

    But since they aren't allies of the Strawhats, the CP9 won't appear on the next cover. I guess we've almost reached the end of the "From the Decks of the World" mini story - The former WB Pirates, Shanks, Iva-chan and Crab-chan are still left with their reactions on Luffy's return, maybe Oda extends the series for the rivals or enemies (Blackbeard, Crocodile, Kid etc.)

    Next station would be Thriller Bark, but since Lola and her crew are in W7, the old man Spoil is probably next on the cover (maybe with Little Oars Jr. on his grandfather's grave?)

    didi anyone thought the possibility Jewelry Bonney came back and used her power to make giants from Erbaf children? that's what I friend of mine told me yesterday? I find this theory improbable,but if oda hadn't got anything else in mind,it may be suitable...

    Just to be clear: I'm still in power and I'm the f**** ruler of this place. Aside the admins, of course. And fellow mods. BUT STILL, I'm ruling this section. Lately I've been with tons of exams and studying, so I'm taking care more of the HxH section which is smaller.

    In March 15 my exams ends, so I'll be here again regularly to read all your post and bitch all the time about the offtopic. So don't worry guys, you'll feel a pain in the ass soon.

    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.

    I know your pain Uriel. I'll be up all night playing studying and watching for new one piece possibly though and if sometime I get bored in between all that and Asura's Wrath (awesome game you should look it up) then I'm just going to bed.


    In the spirit of on topic conversation anyone besides me hate when Oda takes a break? I do. I wish one day he came out the cut with a years worth of chapters and took a break for just a month or two so I could read them straight. I miss those days. I don't know at all where the current story is gonna go but it's getting better. I expect to see someone we've seen before very soon and more new characters. We might see some real giants soon actually I mean they are their children or they will be escorted back to elbalf before or after Wano.

    Oda draws around 1,500 to 1,700 pages each year (18 pages per chapter in the average, 44-48 chapters, initial name and finalizing). NOT including raw sketches for character designs for both manga and anime. Good grief... Let him oversee production on 11th Movie, draw the manga weekly and have fun with his family at least on one day per week. :P

    you forgot to add the Cover drawns,which are the toughest drawings Oda deal with,imo.
    by the way,it's true that Oda takes more breaks than the other mangakas,but I don't think we can't complain,since at least oda offers us a quality manga!
