Honestly, I don't get what the problem is with Usopp. It's one of his most prevaling personality traits. Being scared and careful, I mean. It's one of the reasons why he's a wielding a slingshot and attacking from distance, not using 2 axes in melee combat. Something like that can't just disappear in 2 years. And it shouldn't. Every SH has a personality quirk and those are the characters we learned to love. Turning them into different persons would take away from the story.
About Ussop,i consider him as a hero already.To be able to beat the crap of about hundreds soldiers(even though they are fodders) is no way near what Ussop would have done two years ago. Alot has change in him.He is more proud,stronger and way less of a coward then he use to be.But of course people don't completely change so we can still see some patern of the old Ussop that love and i don't mind that as long as he kick some asses.
That won't happen. Besides, OP always had a dark, realistic side to it and characters were diying since the beginning. Marineford battle didn't change anything as far as I'm concerned.

If you love personalities more than development then i understand you, but really i'm completely tired of characters who aren't developed in all what i read and Usopp is the best prospect on One Piece in have this at the end of his fingers.
Usopp received enough development while still staying the same character. That's enough for me.
Frankly, I was afraid he would become completely different after the time skip, but I was relieved when I saw he was still the same person. Just like Luffy and Zoro and Sanji and everyone else.
How come Usopp wasn't developed ? He went from that coward who was living a peaceful life in Syrup village, to a pirate who wouldn't hesitate a single second to throw his life for his nakamas if needed. He went from that kid who had no training, no fighting knowledge and stuff to a strong warrior in the span of 3 years, he fought many characters stronger than him and yet defeated them, he even dared to leave the SH's just for Going Merry, I mean come on...
His cowardly and cautious nature will be part of him, and it is what enabled him to become a great Sniper too to begin with... Especially the cautious part...
How come for example you don't hate Luffy for being an idiot, and yet managed to learn Soru so fast that Blueno was rather surprised by it ? Luffy is an idiot no matter how much you put it, yet he can be considered a genius too...
I don't get it, why Usopp only ? Do you just want him to have cool poses to be happy ?

About the personalities after the two years, i expected Luffy to change a little... he have seen Ace dying and thought it was guilt for that, maybe more mature and thoughtful like when Mihawk said he really changed a little, but doesn't matter anymore.
Why am i insisting with only Usopp? Because he's the only Strawhat that interest me at this point of the series. And the poses, Nami's poses fits perfectly for this kind of Usopp, serious in a probable combat in any moment. For example, when he was alone in the camera room and hiding from CC's underlings is what i considered as cautious, but then step into a higher point of the room being sorrounded to say things without knowing the answer of them is really the behaviour of Usopp that i really expect from him. Part of his known character and from the new one, then to say his wonderful speech about Luffy, i couldn't be more happy with it.
That Usopp you said you like, is the same Usopp who stood up against Mr 4 and Miss Merry Christmas when she began to talk shit about Luffy, despite being heavily injured. That Usopp you like is the same Usopp who cheered for Luffy when he was close to give up fighting against Rob Lucci, he's the same Usopp who fought bravely against Chew while the later was superior to him in every aspect, he's also the same Usopp who did everything to protect his village against Kuro
So to say that Usopp got courageous is wrong, he didn't, he's still a coward in normal situation, but when needed, he gets his shit together
@Zehahaha i don't think the new world is going to be a completely dark place.We are still going to see the One piece that love but witha little update;we are going to see more epic battle and of course once in a while people are going to die.

Actually if you would have read my post carefully you would have understood what i meant . I said with my last phrase that i'm positive his weapon would eat it by accident , Usopp having nothing to do with it

I think they could be either dead or alive. However, one thing will stay the same till the end of the series: The Strawhats will never kill their enemies. Okay, Zorro killed Helmeppos pet wolf and the previous Mr. 7, but that was before he became a Straw Hat.
And that's actually one thing I always liked about One Piece. The good guys really are good guys, and not a bunch of heroic murderers like in some other Shonen.
Neither Monet nor Vergo were "killed" by the Strawhats, though.
I don't think it's Aokiji though I agree the body's position and words do fit the former Admiral's - by the way has the "Aokiji's image" ever been confirmed to be original ? Anyway, the face doesn't fit and almost everybody on this forum forgot to consider this element which is much more important that the rough body's shadow.
At first, I thought the foreheard's shadow could be explained by Aokiji's eye mask, but if you add the nose and the mouth's shadows, that does not make any sense. These straight lines can't be from Aokiji's face. This is so wrong.
I support iMan77's theory which is that this man is actually the hat guy from the underworld brokers.
This guy says this isn't just some underworld problem anymore. It isn't a competition between brokers to possibly buy and get Shinokuni anymore : it is the end of smile trade as Law planned and it will wreak havoc in New World. The fact the hat guy is with a cat ADF means this concerns his group which has smile DF users.
I guess he stood up to deal with the smile issue on his own. That's why he asked the cat ADF to inform the New World. As his underworld brocker, he doesn't have time himself to inform his Yonko or boss : he has to come to PH quickly so that he can get what is left of SAD. He is responsible for the smile's orders.

A man we just saw watching a video would 5 minutes later be in the middle of the sea saying he overslept ? Sorry but that does not make sense. And discarding the fact that it is not Aokiji based on a shadow panel of an hypercleaned scan is not really convincing either.
