Well... In Germany we actually have seen the Arlong arc surely for like 25 times now because of all the rebroadcasts, which I am no longer watching since the like fifth time. But, I wasn't tired of seeing the tearjerking bits of the flashback. I also recall the Arlong flashback being used only after the Arlong arc itself for the third time now. Ocean of Dreams arc, Enies Lobby filler and now as introduction for Jinbe's apology on the Sea Forest, am I right?
Some gifs I wanted to share with you:

And BTW, an interesting chapter. I think this flashback is the best thing you can have from this arc. I mean...Otohime is awesome and Fisher Tiger always worth seeing.
Nothing top notch, but I sincerely think they did a good work on Otohime. Voice cast, music, expressions.
Probably my fave "Queen" character in shounen.
Toei sure has a talent for episode titles...
Manga Title: Chapter 621 - "Otohime and Tiger"
Episode Titel: Episode 540 - "Hero of the Slave Liberation - Adventurer Fisher Tiger"
And the content is nearly the same.
But I got a nice gif out of it, I didn't watermark it though. :P

No manga spoilers here please.

Next one is another toriko special? Why are they making these toriko special in the first place?
I'm guessing same tv network and the Toriko mangaka used to work for OP mangaka, not to mention they've also done OP-Toriko manga specials as well.
But it's painful....
I think those crossover specials are great, at least MUCH better than a standard filler. I always enjoyed them as carefree episodes with no consequences like the Boss Luffy specials (though one of them had a huge spoiler on Buggy working with Mr.3 ). The only "pain" to me was with the last special, nearly no one cared to share the introduction (Toriko Ep.1) in nice quality but only put up Episode 492 of One Piece. Watching only the second part didn't make any sense.
Anyways, today's episode was rather ... well, not perfectly drawn (Taiyou Pirates / Otohime was better than last Episode IMHO), standard paced... But there were too many CU scenes IMHO. And I don't get why they cropped the bounties from Tai's and Jinbe's wanted posters.

So this week the pace is down to one chapter per episode. But there's an error in this episode, isn't there? (Clearing up is a spoiler though.)
i guess its on purpose they showed it that way
A month of fb... I hope next episode will be the last one...
