-I love Bartolomeo and want him as a SH. he reminds me of Franky's uniqueness when he was first introduced.

About Crocoboy and Magellan: I agree that the haki introduction hurt them quite a bit. The problem I see here is that in order to count to the strongest of the strongest you have to have insane basic fighting power aswell like Van Ogre stated was the case for Ace. I mean Crocodile and Magellan both didn't seem to stand much of a chance in terms of attack power and speed to pre-timeskip Luffy. And we all know what he could do to New World veterans/Admirals/Vice Admirals - nothing. He lost in speed and power. Akainu could've easily beaten pre-timeskip Luffy without his fruit aswell the way I see it. So how can people like Enel/Crocodile/Magellan wo were inferior to Luffy in basic fighting power be relevant just because of their devil fruit? It doesn't make much sense. They were portrayed as too weak and stay weak in my opinion forever. Which is a shame.
(And about Crocoboy being more useful in the war: He has higher ranged attacks, more experience and he is a logia and not everybody at Marineford was a haki user. Also he didn't rush to Ace so he didn't encounter as many big shots as Luffy. Imo Doflamingo could've easily killed Crocodile if he had used haki - which he is obviously capable of)
Jimbei is already confirmed to be the next nakama, thus soft-core fans should stop nominating any random character
-The next SH will be more menacing than the current crewmembers.
-Jinbe won't be an ally, he will join.

...One Piece is overrated. As a whole it's admittedly better written than the other 'big two' (and maybe most WSJ series) and has a compelling universe, but the plot still suffers the same simplistic quirks as most shonen.
I think choppers giant transformation is lame
The next crew mate (after jimbe) should be very violent. Like bart and zoro.
Usop didnt really gain anything much in the timeskip except special seeds (which are prolly limited) and a new slingy.
- Don Chinjao is stronger than any of DD's top executives including Vergo (haven't seen enough of Pica though)
- Blackbeard's strategies are pretty good
- Don Krieg was a tougher fight than Arlong and pretty difficult

-I'm getting real fuckin sick of Luffy, Zoro and Sanji being the ONLY ones capable in combat, I want the others to do stuff as well and not act so cowardly for laughs all the time.
-I agree on the notion that One Piece is overrated (even though I like the series and prefer it to the other 2 in the big three and airy dale) but even in the shonen demographic there are works out there with better intrigue action humor and emotional moments.
-I don't think this is unpopular but for the record I'd like to say that I'm kind of getting tired of princess characters in this series. I want to see more pirates Government agents and rouges.
-I think Oda needs to seriously do better with his female cast (more so recently).
-Sanji's 'Melorene' moments have been getting on my nerves for a while now.
Apart from Usopp, Nami, and Chopper, who has acted cowardly? Franky went after Doflamingo's cronies at Punk Hazard, he wasn't scared at all. Brook may be scared, but he also willingly fights when needed. Robin doesn't run either. Hell, even the cowardly trio fight when they need to, and prior to this arc, none of the trio ever expressed fear when fighting. It was the future that they were scared of, whether clashing with Big Mom or Luffy wanting to go to the most dangerous island.
Unpopular opinions? Well, don't know if these are "unpopular" but here's what I think:
-Shanks is overrated.
-The return of Ace's fruit is bad.
-The revelation of Sabo being alive is even worse.
-Dragon is overrated.
-Yonkou aren't necessarily stronger than Admirals.
-Crocodile is underrated.
-Oda needs to change his style more often(The WB Saga for example, was different from the arcs that compose about 80% One Piece.)
-Oda should stop having a random ass audience that somehow seem to always conveniently be around to praise the magnificent Straw Hats whenever they do something epic.
The Alabasta arc was overall the worst arc. It stopped being good when the crew left Whiskey Point (?) with Vivi and became good again when they reached the island of Alabasta. The Elbalf giants and Drum Island were just that boring and bad.
