Oda VS GOda

Are you a true fan of One Piece? Probably not.

The internet is full of arguments, big and small. Mostly unimportant. One such argument is between fellow fans of One Piece. Superfans, I call GOdas (God + Oda) are nothing new. The guys and gals who obsess over something to the point where loving something means loving every single thing about it. Maybe it’s because I hold One Piece fans to a higher standard and I love it so much but these GOdas have got to calm the hell down! Here’s a GOda post in response to people complaining about the end of chapter 742.

People who are complaining about how Sugar was defeated – you clearly think you’ve been reading a completely different manga. Go home and stop whining like little bitches :I

Enjoy One Piece for years but if you criticize anything about it you aren’t a real fan. Don’t like something in an over seven hundred chapter story? Sorry, you’ve been wasting your time and money. Stop now and get out while you can.

Get a grip, people! Everyone isn’t going to like every chapter, every character, and every scene in One Piece. That doesn’t make them any less a fan than you.

One Piece Chapter 742: Ever At Your Side

Plot is moving. That’s good.

I’m conflicted with this chapter. I’m happy, very happy, Usopp fought Trebol & Sugar knowing he would probably lose. But, I’m bothered we only saw the beginning and ending. Now, about the last page, I didn’t like it. When I first read it I had no idea what the hell was happening. I thought Usopp made some sort of plant tentacle vine double of himself. After I got an explanation from a forum I understood the joke but still didn’t care. Don’t hate it but it was too reliant on dumb luck for my taste. Like Oda wrote himself into a corner having to make Usopp beat Sugar while also losing to Trebol while making sure he didn’t physically hurt Sugar.

I hope the Kyros flashback is justified in the next couple chapters because I don’t care about him enough to enjoy all the attention Oda is giving him because at this point I’m assuming he’s going to get taken out quickly by Doflamingo to get to him fighting Luffy. Maybe he’ll take out some members of the Donquixote Family instead. At this point he needs to do something awesome to get me to care more about him.

Speaking of the Donquixote Family, I’m curious how the rest of the family will be defeated. Franky and Usopp are out of commission and Team Sanji busy with Big Mom and/or her crew. That basically leaves Luffy, Zoro, Robin, Kinemon, and Kyros to deal with the rest of the family. Or, not.

Sabo will take down Diamante and there are several pissed off toys about to turn human to serve Trebol and his grunts hell on a platter. Zoro got Pica so that takes care of the elite officers but what about the other Donquixote executives? Kinemon could take one down but someone is missing…Fujitora! Even Law may help a little. I knew Sanji leaving Dressrosa was a departure from the usual versus formula but Oda could be taking it to another level. Looking forward seeing how it plays out.

I wonder if the woman looking at baby Rebecca was the queen? By the way, what’s with Oda hating queens? Either they’re dead or not around. Bad experience watching Alice in Wonderland or Freddie Mercury kicking sand in his face, you decide.

Chapter 735: Fujitora’s Outlook

Violet joins Team Luffy in an effort to sneak inside the palace. Senor Pink protects Ms. Valentine 2.0 as the marines join in deciding a cyborg with enough firepower to blow up a small country is kinda dangerous.

Best part of the chapter is Fujitora declaring his goal of having the Royal Shichibukai abolished! He made DoDo sad. The chapter ends with the final match for the mera-mera about to start.

Let’s talk about the Reverie for a moment. Ship is gonna go down at the Reverie. Perhaps crappy new World Government rules or a plan formed to take down the world’s worst pirates and/or revolutionaries? Or, could Dragon and his buddies crash the Reverie party or use the opportunity to start revolutions in countries with their monarchy away? Whatever happens there one thing is sure, it’ll be a game changer.

Chapter 734: The Kamaitachi of Rommel

Haters gonna hate!

Rebecca won thanks to Cavendish going in Hakuba mode. Love the guy who accused Rebecca of hiding a gun. Just where exactly could she be hiding one? I bet someone made a frisk Rebecca adult doujin.

Sabo knew about Hakuba, interesting. It’s definitely not common knowledge so how does he know? Either the Revolutionary Army also investigated the Rommel incidents or there’s a revolutionary mole in the Navy.

Another interesting point was Doflamingo saying Luffy had “treacherous blood”. He’s obviously talking about Luffy’s father, Dragon, but saying Dragon is treacherous could mean something important.

Crazy theories time!
We know Dragon was born in Goa Kingdom and for some reason the king of Goa was never shown or named. Why? Is the king of Goa linked to Dragon? Could he be Dragon’s father-in-law? At the very least for someone to create the Revolutionary Army he has to know what really goes in the world. I think Dragon was part of the World Government or Navy at some point.

Kingdom Chapters 339-341

No. No. No. No. No! NO! NOOO!!!!

Deep breath…..deeeep breath. Okay.
……
Fatigue is becoming a huge problem as the Battle of Sai continues. So much so, Sei must raise the militia’s moral both day and night. Only thing that’ll make him more loved is if he started singing. Naturally, he won’t for fear of battle panties being thrown at him. Good little moment with Shoubunkun and Shin revealing estimations that Sai won’t last past eight days. Love those two interacting, always get father & son vibes from them.

It finally happened, Sei’s identity was reveal after going to the front lines and holy sheep and rams! Sei is now injured and Riboku will soon learn the king of Qin is ripe for the picking. Well, at least he’s alive. Thanks Shin! Predicting militia moral is gonna take a dive and Riboku is gonna start poppin’ champagne. The end game begins.

One Piece Chapter 733: What Soldier-san Desires

Color Spread Alert! The Strawhats playing in the snow. So whimsical, so fun. Reminds me of a simpler time when I was young- Is Sanji trying to give that snow woman huge tits?

Operation S.O.P. continues! Robin and Usopp get henchman hand-me-downs courtesy of the Tontata’s Tail Hammer attack, brutal. What’s in the booox? Thunder Soldier. And, he brought some Tontatas and an ass kickin’ with him. Back at the coliseum, everyone is passed out. This is why you don’t do shots before fighting tournaments. Who won? Easy, Jack Daniels.

Best Boxers: Skinny Henchman

One Piece Chapter 732: The Underground World

Operation S.O.P. begins! This is a step-up chapter, moving characters into place and giving readers information. Information on the Donquixote Family hierarchy and underground world. For such a naive group the Tontatas are excellent information gatherers. TMZ would offer them a job in a second. Franky VS Senor Pink looks promising and Team Usopp, now inside the underground port, are ready to Solid Snake it to Sugar.

Kingdom Chapters 337 & 338

First things first, if you like shounen manga you should be reading Kingdom. Seriously, pick any chapter and read it.

Finished? Congratulations! You’re a Kingdom fan! Action, humor, tragedy, interesting characters, this series has everything to keep you entertained.

Shin VS Futei ended quicker than I thought but was still satisfying. Kyoukai saved his hide again for the five thousandth time. I completely forgot her and couldn’t be happier. Not because I hate her but because I had doubts the series could be as good without her. Glad I was wrong.

The real treat was Karyo Ten VS Kaine. Seeing them walk the line between duty and mutual respect makes their relationship interesting, especially for Kaine. She’s clocked more battlefield experience than Karyo Ten and doesn’t seem to be someone who lets her emotions get the better of her in a fight. Guess there’s a flashback explaining this in the future. Hoping Ten and Kaine will interact again this arc but I don’t see that happening. What I do see happening is Riboku learning Sei is leading the militia and going all out to take them down. Shout out to Turnip Farmers for scanlating this awesome series.

Best Panel: Kaine bitch swatting Karyo Ten with her sword hilt.

One Piece Chapter 731: The Dressrosa S.O.P. Strategy

One Piece Chapter 731 The Dressrosa S.O.P. Strategy

This chapter. THIS MOTHERHUGGING CHAPTER!

I should build it up but screw it. Sabo! Now, my excitement doesn’t come from confirmation he’s alive, I knew I was. Most Piece Heads figured it out, wasn’t hard. The real shock comes from seeing Sabo this “early” in the series. I figured we wouldn’t see he for at least two years real life time but there he his. So, what does this mean?

1. High probability Sabo is getting the flame-flame fruit. Makes sense considering the other Strawhats wouldn’t want it.

2. The Revolutionaries are starting something big. From the conversation between Sabo and Koala (she’s back, yay!) they’re looking for the underground port too. They are either looking for Smile to steal for the Revolutionaries and/or trying to strike at Doflamingo at the heart of his operation to bring him down. Doflamingo. The Warlord Doflamingo. The former Celestial Dragon Doflamingo. That’s bold. Kick in the World Government’s crotch bold! If that’s their plan the Revolutionaries may be starting their final push to take down the World Government. Insane!

Whatever the result, the Revolutionaries are now in the forefront of the story and that’s exciting.

Backtracking a bit, we learn Dellinger is a master of kicking people in high heels AKA Skank-Fu. Bellamy, get a clue my friend. Doflamingo doesn’t like you. Move on! Sugar has the Hobby-Hobby fruit, confirming she’s the one turning people into toys. Not impressed until I see her change someone into a PS4. And finally, Koala knows fishman karate, interesting! Looking forward to see her in action and happy she’s back in general. You go marsupial girl!

Oh yeah, Caribou cover story is over too. Thank Enel!
