So episode 544 is the last page of chapter 623 and the complete chapter 624, isn't it?
Without spoilers, then I'd predict it's still two episodes left of flashback maybe since Toei/Fuji keep their one chapter per episode. From the teaser next week should cover chapter 625 then.

Am I the only one who is watching this episode just for the sake of being OP instead of wanting to see this? Damn, I so want this arc to end NOW.
You're probably not the only one who wants this arc to end, but I've actually enjoyed the episodes and the arc as a whole so far. Even the fillers were sort of acceptable or at least "bearable and much better than a filler arc".
I still haven't seen 545 though since I have to run some OS updates.
Is it me or did Arlong's eyes change colour? don't like it.
I'm still in the minority who liked this flashback arc though. Also impressed that Tiger managed to be bright PINK without crossing over to ridiculous..
Tiger and "bright pink"? #dc7873 (lit) nor #af504d (shadowed) aren't pink: Pink has full red and more blue than green. These colors is a variation of "magenta".
So your screen is off.
True, a lot of people are hoping that the Fishman Island arc ends soon, but you're forgetting, the best part's coming.
I like the last two episodes and, well, the entire Arc so far. Flashbacks are pretty good. Of course I liked more those that portraided Tiger's story, but Otohime's are also interesting to see.
Though I didn't like Otohime in manga (and well in the anime even more), but it's really sad to see her dieing. Actually she was too persistent and self-centered. She looked like a contry-side girl who wanted to live in Beverly Hills no matter what.
Hope we'll see Luffy kicking asses sooner as it's the best part of the Arc.
I liked this episode's (546) second half. It made me tear up alright.

That was quite sad. I felt bad for the princes having to act a fool to calm down Shirahoshi when they really just wanted to break down and cry.
I almost always think that the manga is better than the anime, but this arc has it's moments, and I think this scene is one of them. The music helps a lot to add to the emotion.
One thing I am hoping for in the coming action oriented episodes is that the anime team take some liberties with the way the fights are structured. In the manga, the we got a snippit of each fight back and forth until the fights were finished. I think this is partly because all the Straw Hats were near each other and fighting at the same time. To show each fight singularly and in it's entirety at once before moving on to the next would mean going back in time a bit each time, which might be confusing, so I can see why Oda did it that way. But I am hoping the anime team won't jump around like that and show each fight all the way through until moving on to the next. Kind of like Enies Lobby(which was easier to do since the Straw Hats were in different areas). I won't get my hopes up though.
Waching 544 right now, those Fishmen were all bastards, their signatures were only 0,02% of the population and they still happily hurt their own queen by acting like cruel monsters they despise so much. Otohime was really one of the strongest characters in One Piece, to keep up her hope through all the suffering. Her drunk outburst felt much better in the animated form.
shit nearly cried when the princes were holding back their tears to cheer weak-oshi up.
Well tonight, the real interesting stuff begins.
