    Re: Oda's Interviews

    What Oda says publicly and what he feels privately are two different things.

    Oda could never blatantly say, "I don't like or agree with what these people whom I call friends and business partners...

    Congrats. But did you find the secret link?

    Wolfwood wins in his first sentence.

    In a word, Japan.

    And as I pointed out, in this case, it isn't just Japan. That's entertainment and media in general.

    Because I'm bringing these points...

    "I don't like this." is not equivalent to 'stupid'.

    In most entertainment media I can think of, the superior version of any product is never given away free on a regular basis.

    Only a guess but one based on photography as well as art. This layout softly carries the eye across the gap. It creates a lighv mood as opposed to a stark contrast like, say, Enel. Check out the...

    Don't hold your breath on the 'Xth Person' chap titles. It might be addressed someday but I'm not currently expecting it to be.

    Beautiful.

    Yeah, I don't care whether Pedro is dead or not, the important thing is, Oda isn't treating him with a wink and a nudge so if he's alive, it's actually surprising. That's all we ever...

    Ally? That'd be tough. Luffy *by himself* would have to be as tough as Kaido and go head to head with Mom for a long time. I don't think Oda would waste time on that and so no, not to the level of...

    I still believe (strongly) that Pudding will be essential to reeling in Mom in or around Elbaf unless things get really insane at Wano. That being said, Oda giving her the hero stick at Wano would...

    Yup. 100%.
    It is indeed a shame that we now have literal worldwide simultaneous release (which seems like the 'hard' part) and yet have so much more to go. Granted there are logical reasons for why...
  14. Sticky: Re: New MANGA Plus service from Shueisha (global, legal, simul, free, English release

    As I intimated in my post, it's not only piracy. But piracy is one aspect of it.

    There are certain aspects of the Spanish version that Shueisha is not aware of but would not approve of. I'm...

    Yes, fans absolutely should band together and collectively tell them what they want. Sometimes those goals are unrealistic, but especially when it comes to preserving the...
  16. Sticky: Re: New MANGA Plus service from Shueisha (global, legal, simul, free, English release

    The whining about the Zoro/Zolo thing is made infinitely more entertaining to see when you know Oda's personal opinion on it.

    That aside.

    Does it suck? Yes.

    Is it literally *the* dumbest...

    Auem, very possible. Might be something tangent to that though. Meaning, Roger and Garp could indeed have gone 2v1 but asked WB to defend a group of ppl or even their crew. Plus it could have been a...

    Wanting 1v1s every arc doesn't seem like an unrealistic expectation. The series was grounded in it for a decade.

    I prefer focus on the Strawhats which is why so much of the New World has been hit and miss.

    Oda's main cast hasn't been together for nearly half the length of the series itself *and it shows*.

    People have just as much a role in the performance of a sports team as they do a manga.

    Caveat to caveat.

    Which is a matter of pure sales.

    Not, "My series sold more than yours." Which is...exactly what it will deteriorate into.
