I think the hard boiled fight was actually quite funny and unexpected but, yes, it took too many pages.
For my prediction, I'm guessing that Tontatta army is the ace up Doflamingo's sleeve... because, what will happen when suddenly and actively he threaten to kill Mansherry if they don't attack Luffy's side? Maybe, that's her power.
Then again, it takes a lot out of you to create a great stories.
Aside from the Franky and Senor Pink fight which was cringe-worthy, I didn't find the chapter that bad. Though it's still the weakest chapter of this arc IMO.
-I'm glad that the factory destruction plot is moving along since that is the main reason why this arc exist in the first place.
-The dwarves being so naive and gullible still annoys me. I don't even understand how they managed to survive so long with that mentality. Though the scene of them wearing ear plugs was funny.
-Doflamingo sure love collecting princess, doesn't he?
-Manshelly probably has some hax ability like Viola.
Tbh everybody is complaining about the bad in this chapter but seems to overlook the good . EVERY missing element of this arc was introduced in 2/3 chapters where before hand it was VERY slow paced....isn't this what you wanted ? With this new development this arc might end this year .
- The pages with Franky was very funny to me . Why do this manga has to be action pack all the time ? Everything you guys saying is bias cause once the anime comes out these little puns will be awesome to you guys . I can't wait to find out what's Franky nipple light move
I agree lots of cliff hangers but Oda has the ability the put it all together in a chapter or two like a puzzle....clearly "some" of you don't believe in Oda abilities.
Chapter ratings: 7.5/10

Least JamarTheDem knows One Piece well. It is like a puzzle that takes time to unravel.
Of course reading the chapter week by week seemingly reveals nothing, but when reading large portions of the manga you'll get the hype you wanted.
I'm just a little disappointed in this attitude from this community. I didn't come here just to read a bunch of people who clearly don't seem to want be here to say anything positive or constructive, just they find it boring, not enough eye candy to dribble over, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. If it bores you that much, STOP stinking this place out with the negativity and leave this place to people who still enjoy reading One Piece right now and actually WANT to talk about it. Come back in a months time or whatever when the story has progressed far enough for you people =(
like the saying goes, if you've got NOTHING good to say don't bother saying anything at all. I don't go over to Fairy Tail forums just to remind them how much the shallow sexually posing eye candy babes in every chapter irritate me.
In One Piece the factory was opened, so it can finally be destroyed, and it is also revealed that Mansherry isn't there and has an ability.
It's just that I've got the feeling that everyone here complains about slow pace and no plot progression because everyone does it, and not because it is particularly true.
I admit the manliness unleashed this chapter was even too much for myself to handle that my senses have been sent into a climax of both awe and horror. It was unexpected, chilling and wonderful, but still a far cry from what more than a few of the One Piece reader's were expecting from the recent content in the One Piece chapters.
Given that the content has been so fragmented as of late, especially battles and flashbacks, frustration and indifference has arisen in many regarding the interruption of such exciting developments. The content focusing on Franky/Senor Pink and Mansherry wasn't uninteresting and bad, it was just that some of us had our attention attracted to other developments, such as seeing Zoro unleash or Law's flashback covered. With such exhilarating content overwhelming our mind and beckoning our attention, it becomes hard to divide such attention and interest towards happenings which relative to those consuming our minds feel comparably lesser.
In addition to being overwhelmed by the One Piece eccentricity pushed forward from almost all the characters covered in Dressrosa, Oda-sensei is also trying to get us to separate attention from what we are most looking forward to towards content that doesn't concern some of us as strongly.
Once we have a conclusion to Zoro's annihilation of Pica and Law's flashback covered, many will have attention and interest free to attach to other developments.
It may seem pitiful and unbecoming as One Piece fans, but we just love certain developments too much that other developments keeping us from finding out more about what interest us makes us somewhat frustrated and negative.
Clearly some of you just want action pack fights, no funny moments, no other characters being showcased beside Luffy or Zoro and expect a good anime like that ? That's why this forum is falling because everybody complains and never sees the good in every chapter and like BetaRuler said maybe it's best for some of you guys to stop reading for a month or so , I did it once in my OP lifetime and it helped out a lot .
CP9 arc had funny moments and was action filled. This arc has an overpowered villain like DD who seems to make a double of himself out of strings that can talk and breath which is beyond dumb Oda even went as far as to let strings to create a faraday cage which doesn't let electro magnet waves out or in.
Besides DD all seem to be fodder for Luffy and Zoro.
If something is bad then everybody has the right to say it is bad. I mean do we say how can you say this chapter is good? And OP is a weekly manga not a monthly manga. If Oda#s intend is that the stroy should be read as a whole then he might consider going monthly rather than weekly.
First, there are complainers about the chapters week after week. Now there are complainers complaining about other complainers' complains. Oh boy... there is no end to it my dear... (hehehe )
I personally like the series, whether how slow or fast the pace is, or how funny or serious it may be, or even how action-packed or solemn it could be, I accept how the author presents it. In fact the series has brought forth many laughter chapter after chapter. It's kinda fun actually, if you try to understand the author's writing and presenting style and learn to appreciate it. Of course I know, not many people share the similar sentiment. Hmm...
You do get where I'm coming from right, I would like to ask if a mod could put up a different thread labelled "Post here to complain about One Piece" FOR all these readers that I'll quote jamarTheDem for saying "just want action pack fights, no funny moments, no other characters being showcased beside Luffy or Zoro".
I don't want to come to this forum only to deal with these kind of people just because they don't have the capacity to digest something "Different", that's right that's the problem here. What Oda is trying to do now is DIFFERENT, he COULD just use the SAME formulae he used and arguably IS using the same story setting formulae as Alabasta to quite an extent. But now his story telling pace is GETTING DIFFERENT and it could be he's having an awkward time pulling it off but he's at least learning and giving it a try. Either way, I'm studying what he's doing and I quite like the sophistication in his story telling. I like the humour and the grand romance of adventure that he's trying to depict, he's trying to tell us more than just a simply straight up "GOOD GUYS VS BAD GUYS WRESTLING BRAWL TONIGHT! GOOD GUYS WIIIIIIIIN! LIKE JOHN CENOR SUPER SMASSSSSHHHHHHHH".... Blech...
TLDR... Can we CREATE a thread for the people who DON'T like the story pacing to use instead of filling out our chapter of the week thread up with this unnecessary show of negativity.
