Timeskip (jump right to the end of the trainings)
Detailed (show each strawhat's trainings)
Cover page (glimpse as we only follow Luffy's)
But I think that what I said is (proper resting time assured) conservative in One Piece World.
I was just saying that Sanji will improve over time contrary to what Soka seems to imply.
And who knows, Sanji could develop a skill similar to Luffy's eat-while-sleeping, in his case fight-while-sleeping?
If Sanji won't get any rest, the timespan won't be too long I think.
In my opinion this would indicate a more shorter timespan than a longer one.
He will need some place to hide while sleeping... isn't just that?
Luffy learns to swim! That gotta be great Haki training, as Haki seems to be will power based. I feel it's something Rayleigh would do. I know the OP rules state DF users cannot swim, but perhaps that rule can be broken with Haki, as every other problem can be solved with Haki.
would be funny if oda stops writing one piece for a year coz they are ''training'' ahaha
Crew: "Luffy, how have you been!?"
Luffy: "I have been <dramatic pause> training! Watch my power! <swims>"
Crew: <shockedface> "Now we can't use that joke where we save Luffy from drowning every time!!!"
I really don't think the swimming thing would work..., because as soon as they touch the water, they just sink... they can't even try to swim...
And this is the only downfall of having a DF, so that would be kinda odd to be able to swim with a DF.
Why does everybody on here seem to talk as if they will all come back together at once? Hell, Luffy might have to go to each of those islands to get them back. I personally am hoping some of their companions become new crew members too.
If this is in fact a training arc, I would rather it jump from character to character in very quick bursts and only show the difficulty they are having, and not go through explanation chapters. Explanations are usually done as observations in One Piece. All of the Strawhats have proven to naturally grow more powerful with each fight as is, and I have no doubt Sanji could beat those 99 Okamas in a month or that Zoro could beat that ape tribe in that time. I think the others will all make very quick progress too. Maybe we'll get an arc more about the Supernovas with quick views on the Strawhats progress. I would like that, as a way to show off the New World from the get go. One Piece doing a training arc does feel weird... xD
Sanji beat iva will be a great end to his training. Zoro being accepted as a rival to mihawk, id be satisfied with that, even if it meant he was sill weaker, but hopefully in the same league. Luffy will be on ace's level but still far from yonko...as for the rest who cares???? They are all just comic releif! There is hardly a serious character between the lot of them?
As they all are waiting/training, then this is the best way to show all the OTHER pirates on the world of One Piece! They can keep showing the supernovas running around, maybe give one or two some something to do, and give them more in dept personality's.
Something else that can be shown would be the revolutions! We could see a few of their actions they will take now with WB's downfall.
And the last thing that can be shown could be the Government/marines/nobles and what they are doing and a few plans.
Add a few "3 days later in the new world" there and here, add a few "one week later at random Marine base" there and here...
And without even slowing down, a LOT of time has passed by before continuing with the strawhats!
