Re: Haunted Island Arch

LOL.............
He could make the tree monster his nakama ... It could protect nami's orange grove.
Jk. ... But I would love to see Robin make cerberus her pet. It'd be cute and hugely funny to see peoples reactions to it.
All in all this arc is great and a breath of fresh air after enis lobby ( which was deadly serious.Good but too serious.)
Plus if Oda throws in a character with a huge chin that looks like bruce campbell I'll Loose my damn mind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Haunted Island Arch

Oda wants to have a Frankenstein's arc.
He wants to put all the horror in a comical way.
Anyway Brook will help in defeating the Moria and his henchmen (remanents of Hogbacks's experiments).
We will know a bit of background why/what Moria is doing this for? (Stealing Shadows)
More character development.
Chopper will know some techniques from Hogback.

Re: Haunted Island Arch

yeah hopefully they will getting stronger and we can learn more about all these random people but that is the problem Oda has introduced 20 bad guys at one time it is like explianing all the marines individualy, Oda also left every other charater behind we dont know who dadan is yet what has happened to shanks and Wb BB and ace, dragon, garp and aokiji, smoke where are all they what are they doing .... and the monster are too cliche for me but i is still funny

Re: Haunted Island Arch

Were not really sure who's a actual bad guy yet.
Remember luffy's a wanted man and a pirate. So to average people or bounty hunters he is the bad guy. I'm just saying that by what hogback has said we don't know if he's a bad guy yet. I get the feeling he is ... but no clear cut proof.
Absolom and Gekko Moria are the only two I can think of that are probably most definitely bad guy's thus far.

Re: Haunted Island Arch

i think that absolom and hogback are the main bad guys of this arc
they might not bt the strongest out there but they have control of all the creatures on the island so they have an army of zombies that aare strong and only because they, the bad guys, are comanding them they, the zombies, are bad

i think that gekko moria is a good scihibukia nothing in the rule book says that this is impossible

and i think that brooke is a good guy that is being controled by evil guys (hogback) with the use of his friends/ ex nakama as ransome for getting more people to the island as so that hogback can do stuff to them

but when luffy beats hogback up brooke will be a good guy again

Re: Haunted Island Arch

This arc is getting to my nerves, I need my dose of OP.
OMG figit, this fast.
We might see what happens to the shadows, and a brief history of Moria. (any guesses)
Cant wait for OP, where is it?

[mod=Luckas]Everyone is waiting eagerly for OP new chap, but this isn't the right place.[/mod]

Re: Haunted Island Arch

that is part of the problem that i have with this arc it takes to long to read oda has to draw very dark stuff and explain it all so it takes alot longer to get very little useable information all we know is this guys name and that he is a shichibukia nothing else and the same or hogback he is a famous doctor gone bad not much else on that front either

Re: Haunted Island Arch

Sorry, OP_overlord :amuse but I disagree with you. Oda gave us much information at the end of the Enies Lobby arc that I really haven't any problem with some unsolved misteries. And he can't explain everything until the manga ends. And, imho, I don't believe this arc will give us some big mistery, even if I really don't know how Oda will fit Moria, a sichikubay(sp) in this arc.
As I said before, I didn't liked Brooke in his first appearance, but from next chap, when he got a little bit of background, I took a liking in him. It really seems to fit well with StrawHats.

Re: Haunted Island Arch

i agree i think brooke fits well with the crew and will join them by the end of teh arc but for the moent he is under the comand of a bad guy

and its not that Oda hasnt told us new important, relevant information it is just that he is making more plot holes that need to be filled in later
i.e. all the new villains (Gekko, Dr. Hogback, Ablsome, Ghosts, Zombies, Paintings,... ) in this arc; and the story yet to be finished about Shanks and WB, and BB and Ace, Dragon, Garp, Smoker, Dadan,...
i think i didnt explain it well the first time

[mod=Luckas]Just a little note, guys: be cautious because of the the thread's subject it is easy to make reference to to the last chap and this isn't allowed until the week-end passed.[/mod]

Re: Haunted Island Arch

Your both pretty much right ... there are ALOT of unexplained mysteries and loose ends to tie up. But I don't think Oda will leave us hanging on any of them. Op is going stronger than ever at Over 400+ chapters and doesn't show any signs of slowing. And truth be told If it stays this good. I don't want it too.
I just keep hoping for a zombie that looks like bruce campbell.

Re: Haunted Island Arch

yes it is just like it but it makes for a good nakama recruiting theory and nami joined just after they left on their adventure andbrooke joins just as they start their adventure into the new world

and just for general info i havent read the spoiler yet it was all on a hunch/infrence/theory

Re: Haunted Island Arch

I bet we'll see the introduction of a couple new strawhats back to back ... it's been a while and they need to introduce the characters and give them time to develop before things get too hot n heavy. Thier almost to the halfway point in the grandline .. and if i'm right expect a military base at the redline. and More Kick=a$$ pirates once they enter the new world.

However back on topic. Everytime I think this arc cant get any better I'm wrong... I just read ch 453 and you can read my opinions about it in the appropriate places. However it' does lead me to wonder .. for the last couple of chapters the zombies have been refering to "The Master" ... as in the masters orders or we obey "The master" I wonder who thier refering tooo... Gekko moria seems too obvious. Hogback maybe because he reanimated them ... Or somebody else entirely. Hmmmmmm...... ?????????? Any interesting ideas would be welcome.

Re: Haunted Island Arch

I think this is a great arc! Oda's gone for the weird/surreal and creepy storyline, whilst at the same time making it really comical..although it has been slightly slow in a few places.

Re: Haunted Island Arch

Yeah it's just a small arc, i don't especially like it. Like the Davy Back fight-thing... not one of my favourites.

Ennies Lobby was just too awesome. And the merman thing promises some interesting plot coming. I think this will be over soon, the point of the arc being Brooke joining.

I think Oda really wanted to have a skeleton in the crew, so he had to do an arc related to it. And you can't just present a new character quickly, you've got to introduce him little by little, making him loved by the reader.

If that was his intention, he succeeded. I love Brook! That, and he has to eliminate the Shichibukai little by little.

So it's a necessary arc in my opinion, but not the best. Although it's getting interesting just now... and well One Piece never fails to make me laugh anyway. Which is always great!
