    Tomita did some work so now we know what his art style's gonna look like with the new look, Tetsuro Tsuyuki continues to flex after flying under the radar for the past decade, I liked some of the 90s-esque shading, and I could see some Matsuda corrections towards the episode's end.

    Everything else was so passionless I could virtually see and hear the screen writer's eyeroll and sigh. Least we only had to sit through two anti-movie-hype episodes this time and the preview for next week looks pretty good (Takagi or HIto?).

    Finally we're done with the filler! No more stalling, back onto Wano awesomeness!

    The animation for the Wano arc doesn't seem to waver judging from the preview, so everything is happening as expected.
    Monkey D. D. Ragon! So beastly he got two D's in his name!

    Well I guess the prelude to the Stampede was very uninteresting. All the Supernovas making their way towards the pirate festival perfectly lined up felt very out of character.

    Best parts of this filler arc:
    • 2 episodes long (though really, Hancock should have been able to take care of the problem halfway through the first ep)
    • Got me excited for Stampede
    Otherwise, it was clear that absolutely no one cared. Though I did appreciate that they took the time to have everyone shit on Cidre at the end. The guy whose subordinates are apparently all slaves just because...?

    Give me episodes covering half a chapter that expand the content well over filler arcs any day.

    When Momonga has to stab his hand just to avoid Hancock's wiles and these filler characters just have to concentrate kinda hard

    They really need to stop trying to come up with weird laughs. They just keep getting more annoying.

    Why didn't SHs have an invitation to begin with (except plot purpose)?!

    Festa did say they were going to be invited. Then that was taken care of when they beat Cidre.

    I don't mind filler arcs if they lead to an increase to the quality of pacing. I wish they did more of them to be honest.

    Ah, I read that as 'Well the eyecatches weren't in Wano' not 'Well the Strawhats weren't in Wano'...... My bad!
