    Re: Young Justice RETURSN OMG

    Wow, I didn't think anyone would catch the setup I did. I figured that was way too subtle.

    I am pleased to see the comedy payoff actually happen.
  2. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 9 - Yamato vs. The World)

    Sure. Won't argue that.

    So's Sabo. He's still officially Luffy's second brother all the same who was never hinted at until right before Ace died.

    It's still part of the story as we now have...
  3. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 9 - Yamato vs. The World)

    If THAT is your standard of foreshadowing, then Ace showed Luffy a vivre card 20 years ago without mentioning where he got it, and foreshadowed having been to Wano during the War when found out about...
  4. Poll: Re: Will it be devastating if a new crewmate displays more strength than Zoro and San

    I don't give a shit about power levels. WHo cares?

    Luffy got beat up by Apoo at the start of the arc. It doesn't matter, Oda will make the enemies exactly as strong and tricky as they need to...

    Re: Young Justice RETURSN OMG

    Nah. I liked that it focused on basically new characters with new things to do that I haven't seen rehashed in the comics a thousand times before.

    I've seen Nightwing and Superboy's and Blue...

    They wrote her out in the last episode of the season as best they could given the circumstances. They'll be continuing without her.

    I feel like the show needs to wrap up soon regardless though. ...

    We as readers know the world is going to shake in a month. The characters don't know that. We as readers knwo the government is fucked up at the top and needs toppling. The characters don't know...
  8. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 9 - Yamato vs. The World)

    In like a month in-universe everyhthing is going to be shaken up anyway. It'll take time for official negotiations to enter the WG, by the time they do the great war will have happened.
  9. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 9 - Yamato vs. The World)

    Remember, the World Government is not inherently an evil thing. It promotes trade and offers marine protection, and most of the world is under it.

    Now, some of the people at the top are awful and...

    End of the arc. They delayed Jinbe's party for a reason, we're not going to get a hold on that.

    So since everyone was talking about it, I went ahead and watched the next couple episodes. Yeah, that Kiku showdown was good... and the scene where the scabbards are running down the hallway in...
  13. Re: AVGN, Lindsay Ellis, Todd, Linkara, Fact Fiend, and other web review shows

    Yes, in cases where Oda *completely* off cameras a fight, and the anime actually picks up on that and fills in the gaps, its an improvement. Anything they do with Jack will be a vast improvement...
  14. Re: AVGN, Lindsay Ellis, Todd, Linkara, Fact Fiend, and other web review shows

    Thats because while the anime has the benefits of color and motion and voices and music, which are huge, and legitimate reasons to prefer it! That pacing is absolutely abysmal and just murders the...

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

    SHINOBU knows what's in the diary now. It ain't that important. It's an insight to Oden's personality and drive, and basically what we saw as readers, and probably not much else.

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

    Jinbe is one of the strongest and most famous pirates in the world and he's just the helmsman, not disturbing anything.

    And both Zoro and Sanji are in the middle of getting power ups right now...
  21. Poll: Re: Next Straw Hat Crewmates (Vol. 9 - Yamato vs. The World)

    I believed in it, but in the face of Yamato... it seems that maybe if Oda well and truly intended to have that be the payoff, he wouldn't have revealed it in SBS a decade in advance, and then teased...

    Hindsight is for if you missed the solution the first time, then later went back and saw the clues before you came to the right result. Be it in a story or a romance or a military blunder.

    He was in like a dozen episodes through all three seasons. Just as a super minor background character with very little dialogue.

    At that point we might as well just make a Vol 9. thread.
