    I'm fine with Marineford. Sure, it has some issues. Like, it's an all-out war between the big names, yet we actually don't really see big names... going all-out. But I understand the narrative...

    However, there's a huge difference between knowing the existence of the agency and meeting an actual agent face-to-face. Regardless of wearing masks, it just doesn't make any sense for a member of...

    Re: Chapter 1,029: The Tower

    Really an enjoyable chapter!

    As for Big Mom, I'm fine with any possibly outcome of the fight. However, I just hope that we won't get a result until after Kaido is down.
  7. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 9 - Yamato vs. The World)

    I found the one and only proper pattern which irrefutably gives away the next Straw Hat crewmate nakama.

    It's very simple and obvious. Look at the first prime numbers which are 2-3-5-7-11. If you...

    If we take real-world Edo-era Japan into account, that is true. However, are there actually some examples of women being discrimated in Wano solely within the text of the manga?

    What makes the post time skips scenarios so complex, anyway?

    Like Big Mom is strong and has a kill switch/uses standard mafia tactics. Nothing complex.
