I dunno why people are so crazy for Afro Luffy. I know when he was introduced though, he was a big hit among a lot of the One Piece fans. lol To me its like.... how Nami and Robin sees the other strawhats' fascination with robots and beams. Its just the underhanded way of the Foxy pirates just rubs me the wrong way and makes my blood boil in a way that I don't enjoy.
I was really looking forward to seeing the dojo as well and was really disappointed that it wasn't shown. But I can't really call not being able to see it the worst part of one piece just because it might be shown later on (prophecy about Luffy destroying Fishman Island would require they return at some point).

The anime version is pure !*?& and is has far tpo much filler and was the worst adaption of an arc so far to me. This is one major reason why I can't take most anime only fans serious, as their impression has to be distorted by the different depiction of events, pacing and filler material etc. Do yourself a favour and
reread it, it's pretty short [303-321] after all. It fit perfectly into the humor that was needed at that time, a breather inbetween the bigger arcs and it had the introduction of Kuzan following it up [same arc].

However, I dunno how badly the foxy pirates themselves must've been mischaracterized in the animation that I would go from "cant stand them" to "that wasn't so bad" when it's their actual character personalities that I can't stand and not the arc itself. Hence the statement:
They were the villains, you are not supposed to like or stand them.
The topic is what "the worst part of One Piece so far" is. And opinion is still opinion. I don't quite understand what's wrong with having such an opinion? Considering that "the worst part" is a subjective matter to discuss. But I think we may be going a bit off topic here...
Worst part of One Piece?
Vivi not joining.
+ Marine Ford Arc kinda bored me.
Davey Back Fight & Foxy was awesome! loved it so much, I hope they encounter somebody like foxy in the new world, who challenges the strawhats

Well this is why, Oda is the best at writing his epic masterpiece, One Piece. Sure, of course, he could've ended this current fight with Ussop going head to head with Trebol or Sugar or the both of them and guess what....it would've been predictable, boring and uninteresting. However, the way this fight did end, the way it was written out and drawn is all part of Oda's styling of his art and One Piece.
Therefore, Oda's imagination just proves why, he's one of the best in the business and not coping out for an quick fix or easy thrill. That's the genius behind One Piece, it's unpredictable and that's why, people keep reading it month after month.
Actually and this isn't trolling against you or anything, but the idea of this forum period is the worst part of One Piece.
Foxy and the Davey Back Fight was the worst part of the series. The arc was silly, pointless, and kind of boring. Foxy was an annoying character.
Fishman island. Easily. Davy Back never pretended to be more than a transition arc but fishman island wasn't. A fishman island arc was foreseen years ago and Oda missed big time. Ennemies were as crappy as possible leaded by an arlong on steroids. The only hyped character was able to withstand Luffy's punch just to be absolutely ridiculous with everything afterwards. Sanji started his "I'm strong but I'm also a useless liability" gimmick which is started to get on my nerves. And Oda even wasn't coherent with the size of the island and had to do a correction in the next chapter. To top it all, the most boring character officially joined the crew: Jinbei. Fortunately, he didn't join immediatly. Even Oda must wonder: "What the fuck am I going to do with Jinbei as a strawhat ?"
Honestly guys, I think these two post time skip arc has been a complete waste. Sure I'm glad he got into an alliance with Law, but the villans were too weak, they're fresh off from powering up, I wanted to see just how strong they are when they're serious. I'm glad there's a giant battle being built up now.
By the way, what was the purpose of Davy Jones arc again? I always thought it was filler...
Pre-time skip: I did not like Thriller Bark--it felt like a Halloween filler arc.
Post-time skip: I didn't like Fishman Island arc, since 1) Hody's endurance made luffy look weak. 2) Way too stretched out 3) it felt like a maximized version Arlong arc--which I thought was annoying to begin with. 4) I thought it was unrealistic how no other super rookies were at fishman island. 5) it felt a bit childish.
It worked as a distraction from the big stress they had between Skypia and the other big Saga of Water 7 & Enies Lobby. It let the Strawhats band together, fight for each other and at last worked as a prologue to W7/EL, introducing Kuzan and did show us the massive gap between Luffy and the top fighters of the marines.
I have to say that it's pretty sad that so many do expect every arc to be serious, when the chapters inbetween the bigger arcs present some of the best of the series, showing interaction between the crew only.
