    The floor of death story arc in ToG is going to be good. Hoping to learn more about Urek, dude seems bad ass.

    It's a pretty straight forward point: having good sales doesn't make something great.

    One Piece has been around forever and has a very broad fanbase. The one episode I managed to get through started with a 5-7 minute recap before even getting to the theme song. Characters look ridiculous- the main dude looks like an 8 year girl transitioning into a boy. The animal-people look absolutely retarded as well. Magi Adventures of Sinbad is much better if you want some seafaring action-adventure story.

    Ah, but One Piece is great. Not only in sales but in plot,world building and character creation. Oda puts a lot of work into his storylines and has been known to write out his storylines far in advance for quality chapters. If you only watched one episode, then you didn't get to experience One Piece. Now, not everyone is going to like One Piece but calling it trash is a little ridiculous.

    I started watching it after having back surgery I had time off from work so started to binge watch from episode 1 up to the fishman island arc and have been watching it normally since. I have no ideal how Oda does it but he ties it all together even with minor characters like Coby. I understand ppl not liking the way Oda draws it and not wanting to read the manga or watch the anime but the story alone is a reason to give it a chance.

    I get a laugh out of every new Baam encounter with a high ranker or floor admin. They always go from "Who the **** is this jovial looking kid?" to "Who the **** is this monster?!"

    @CubicleGangster looks like we're going to be in for some major background developments for ToG, both for characters and the setting.

    Actually no, it's decent but not something I keep up on, I've been lazy lately with reading stuff even the fan service stuff.

    Moving on...

    Ippo will fight Ricardo in a wheelchair at this pace. The whole is Ippo "broken" plot line is geting played out. He need to perfect his new move and start knocking off contenders. He's top ten in the world and gave Gonzales all he could handle.

    Ippo is world class and just needs to get his confidence back.
