    Re: Top-Selling Manga 2021 in Japan

    Yeah, I think you're right about the grounded aspect. I think the episodic nature of Bebop also lends itself more to trying to recreate the story. Like, in Bebop's case, if it goes 2 - 3 seasons on...

    Re: Top-Selling Manga 2021 in Japan

    Ah, yeah, then I'll definitely wait a few more weeks until the end of the season. That discourse sounds.... fun lol. I'm worried that's what the OP Live action conversation will be like even if the...

    Re: Volume 101 Predictions/Discussion

    I thought it was weird he said he wasn't going to go into it, because he has since done so. He cut the scene where Onimaru is surprised, but replaced it with Hyogoro and Kawamatsu discussing Zoro and...

    Re: Volume 101 Predictions/Discussion

    I think it's actually interesting - there was a pretty even mix of 10 and 11 chapter volumes until recently. I'm guessing they're going to primarily stick to 10 chapters for the foreseeable future. ...

    Yeah, that's interesting - I had assumed 11 chapters as well. Could the WT 100 results be included in the book to fill some pages?

    Oh cool, also good to know. I can definitely imagine a scenario like you described for the pilot episode being either cut down in length or condensed from multiple planned episodes. I'm happy to hear...

    Re: Volume 101 Predictions/Discussion

    Thanks! And that's really cool. The first time I heard about Vicke was from Oda's commentary in volume 2 of One Piece. Considering how much nostalgia Oda also has for Vicke, I think there's a good...

    Re: Volume 101 Predictions/Discussion

    I still think Zoro is a Shimotsuki from his mother's side; I got the impression he and Zoro were related, but the timeline didn't quite add up for him being Zoro's father unless Zoro was born or at...

    Yeah, I'm still cautiously optimistic about the live action One Piece series. That's great to hear about Wheel of Time. I'm really looking forward to checking it out! Disappointing about Bebop. It...
  10. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 9 - Yamato vs. The World)

    I'm not a fan of the log keeper role for Yamato if she joins primarily because I think that will be Vivi's position. We have seen her keeping a log of the Straw Hat's voyage from newspaper clippings...

    Re: Top-Selling Manga 2021 in Japan

    Interesting and good to know! Bebop is one of my favorite anime series so that does seem like a reasonable concern. I was personally hoping they were going to tell primarily new episodic stories with...
  12. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 9 - Yamato vs. The World)

    I'm also not a big fan of Yamato's hybrid. I like her human form a lot better and I think being an Oni is much more interestng.

    Re: One Piece Magazine

    Remarkable! Kaido's Devil Fruit is the first with two stems as far as I'm aware. Yamato's has a single stem, so it's not a feature of mythical zoan fruit either. Very, very interesting. I have a...
  15. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 9 - Yamato vs. The World)

    I think it would be very unnatural from a storytelling perspective for the first mention and buildup of the New Dawn to surround Pedro and Carrot only for the latter to never mention it again while...

  17. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 9 - Yamato vs. The World)

    I'm expecting about 400+ chapters post-Wano, so I believe whoever joins will have enough time in the story with the crew. The current saga was about 400 chapters: Punk Hazard -> Dressrosa -> Zou ->...
  18. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 9 - Yamato vs. The World)

    Oh, I'm not saying you can't say it. Just saying, don't forget about Carrot's ties to the Dawn and the direct association Pedro made between this prophecy and the Straw Hats. Carrot hasn't commented...

  20. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 9 - Yamato vs. The World)

    Just pointing out, the only time Yamato has mentioned the Dawn was in reference to Momo. Not saying this ties her to Momo, but she hasn't associated Luffy with the Dawn yet.

    Carrot, on the other...

    Yes, One Piece coming in a lower place has less to do with the decline of One Piece than it does the truly incredible sales of these new series. One Piece only ever did these types of numbers in the...

    Re: Volume 101 Predictions/Discussion

    Perhaps that's true, but I think the telling aspect is just how unsettled her design was - seemingly until relatively recently. Which doesn't say much about joining or not joining, but does indicate...
  24. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 9 - Yamato vs. The World)

    I think Marijoa is the endgame. But I think Vegapunk's location could be where we see some of these characters start to converge.

    More so than the entire war, I think he final battle, which itself lasted about 10 volumes, was used to rush the series to its conclusion. I know that's weird to say about a 73 volume series, but...

    Sticky: Re: Greg: Teacher of SUPER " OP " course !

    It's not a direct comparison because One Piece isn't an anthology, but I appreciate the scale and scope Lucas and Filoni tried to capture with The Clone Wars animated series.

    This, plus the concept sketches for Yamato on her Vivre Card seem to more closely resemble Oda's modern art style. They don't look like early One Piece sketches. If Yamato were planned more than 20...
