Yea his bounty was mostly based on the fact that he was a ruthless pirate. Sorta like a crappy version of Eustass Kidd. Though i think if he fought nami or usopp they would surely find his weakness....

Soul Society It was void of any stupidity like the later arcs. Everything about it was great. Plot twists, the fights, the powerups. All good.

Ichigo coming to save rukia was definately the best.

Ulquiorra to Ichigo: Dont tremble, dont break your stance, stay aware of your surroundings. Dont let your guard down for an instant.
January 18, 2012 10:32 PM
Ulquiorra Giving your opponent tips on what not to do in the next 15 seconds was the most insane thing i have ever seen.

I second Chad. Kubo doesnt even bother with training the characters that arent ichigo. Everyone else including chad has just fallen behind.
January 18, 2012 10:26 PM
Shunsui. His actions speak for me.

I first voted for hitsugaya but im changing it to Yammy. The bastard had survived so long that you knew he wasnt just gonna get pawned. Then it turns out he's number zero and he GETS KILLED...

Nel kid or adult she's just awesome.

I begrudgingly nominate Tensa Zangetsu . First it gave him super speed, then it did nothing, and finally it just went ???? with its abilities.
January 18, 2012 10:18 PM
I second this nomination. Easily the most interesting and complex shikai in the whole manga. And it takes an even greater shinigami to weild it effectively.

Whitebeard death The man lived and died a legend.
January 18, 2012 07:14 AM
Sengoku. He was so calm and poised throughout the series so you just knew when he finally fought it was gonna be epic. When eventually did see him fight his composure was long gone and his abilities...

Sanji I loved him at first but he's just starting to annoy me to the max in recent chapters.
January 18, 2012 07:10 AM
Haki The fact that shanks and presumably roger are amongst the strongest pirates thanks to this natural ability is amazing.
January 18, 2012 07:08 AM
Oda is such a great writer that there really is no wrong answer here but i choose Luffy. He's got a knack for always doing exactly what you want him to and i love that about him. Definitely honorable...
January 18, 2012 07:05 AM
Death of Whitebeard Maybe its the fact that he died standing up or that he never stopped trying to defend his "son's" but this really hit me in the heart. His death has definitely laid the groundwork...
January 18, 2012 07:01 AM
Im gonna say Usopp. Having the title of sniper for the crew pits him up against some of the strongest characters in the one piece world and he's definitely risen up to the challenge.
January 18, 2012 06:59 AM
I second Water 7. The blueno vs luffy fight is what got me in to one piece if i recall. And we haven't seen anything as exciting as Gear 2nd since then.
January 18, 2012 06:56 AM
Ace's Death. The whole culmination of an arc long effort. Every week you found yourself cheering luffy and the whitebeard pirates on until it all came to an abrupt stop here.

Gura Gura no mi for me. That first panel where he cracks reality had me sold.
