    General Episodes Discussion

    I've finally decided to make an episode discussion despite the lack of response to OP anime around here. I hope that there ARE anime watchers among the manga readers. And to find out just how big that group is, I've put in a poll too.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Episode 313 Discussion
    A disturbed rest!
    Marine Vice-Admiral with the fist of love

    After escaping from Enies Lobby on their miracle ship Merry Go, the Mugiwaras have finally said their goodbye to their precious nakama. Now, they are back in Water 7, recuperating from their earlier fights. The Galley-La Company and residents are busy repairing the aftermath of the Aqua Laguna that hit the town. The 200 million shipment had came and Franky shared his dream of building his 'Dream Ship' and entrusting it to the Mugiwaras. Meanwhile, a Marine warship was sighted and Garp, the Vice Admiral has landed on the island with his troops. He barged into the temporary headquarters where the Mugiwaras are residing and awoke the sleeping Luffy with a huge punch to his head. And he turned out to be no other than Luffy's Grandpa.

    Well, Zoro is getting lost as usual and I never thought Garp was his grandpa, hadn't he met Garp in his previous adventure before? And SleepEating, definitely something only Luffy will come up with. Can't wait to see their new ship!

    I don't know why, compared to Bleach, OP anime just sucks (don't ge me started on Naruto here).
    Many fights who are fucked up, especially when it involves Zoro (they should learn from the Bleach animation team, swords fights are better in Bleach, especially Byakuya vs Koga). Zoro's fights are one of the best in OP, and yet they literally butcher it in the anime.

    Re: General Episodes Discussion - Part 1

    I've been watching One Piece from the beginning with my little bro. It's really fun and nostalgic, considering we watched it first in '99. I gotta admit, I prefer the older, more rough drawing and animation more than this new style. But I guess you can't escape progress :/.

    Anyway, we just finished Alabasta Arc, and one of the most epic moments in anime, at least for me. Honestly, One Piece needs more sea battles like this, with cannons blazing all around. Bon Clay for the win!

    Re: General Episodes Discussion - Part 1

    Been thinking recently about previous episodes as I got watching yesterday, do you guys have "go to episodes" that you could watch regardless? I have episode 377; the episode on Thriller Bark with Zoro and Kuma. The animation, writing are so on point; it's one of the cases where the anime does the manga justice and because ultimately Zoro's sacrifice not only saves Luffy but the crew too.

    The other would be 316, where after a long time hyping their meet, Shanks finally reaches Whitebeard. It's such an interesting episode because the scope of our knowledge on both of these pirates and their crews are given a lot of depth, we learn a bit more about their ideologies and that epic scene where they finally clash, but not before WB threatens Shanks in the most aggressive tone.

    This is not to say there aren't other great episodes, there are many; Ace vs BB being another one but these 2 for some reason stand out above the rest. Which ones do you guys have?

    I pretty much like the same episodes as you^^. The Zoro vs Kuma episode is my favorite, because it proves that Zoro is truly the first mate, and he is loyal to Luffy. He's ready to sacrifice his life to make Luffy the Pirate King. And Kuma's fruit is hax, it's one of the most interesting fruits in OP.
    The clash between Shanks and Whitebeard was definitely one of the most interesting moments in the series, I would have loved it if we saw more of it. But basically it shows how much Shanks and Whitebeard are big players, and for a moment I thought that Whitebeard was dumb for not hearing the advice given to him by Shanks. Of course that was before we knew how awesome WB was, and his idea of a family. Seriously WB is the best father in OP.

    Well discovering that Shanks was a part of Roger's crew was a huge revelation( for anime-only fans) and that episode also features one of my favourite tracks from the anime; how bad ass is that theme as Shanks boards the ship?

    The only way that whole episode would've been better was if it was being animated by Eisaku Inoue; the same guy that did 312( the episode with Merry) and 377; my favourite animation director.

    Oh yeah The marine swordsman's battle cry is one of my favorite songs in OP. It's not actually Shanks theme, his must definitely be the second part of The fight continues.It was used at WB and Ace's funeral, when he's thinking about Luffy.

    I don't know much about the animation directors but yeah the one you mentioned is very good.The Merry moment was quite emotional.
