    Sticky: Re: The Great New World Discussion Thread

    Yeah look I'm the last person to advocate taking Oda's romanisations at face value, but this one is so far from pronouncable English that I think it has to be deliberate. It looks like something...

    That does change things. Somehow I totally missed that one haha

    Okay yeah the arm makes no sense on any level. And it's not like Oda's usually all that scared of decent size corrections. Hopefully...

    Queen's Brontosaurus form is only drawn with the robot arm once, and it's the panel where Big Mom slams him into the wall.Not too much of a stretch to say that the robotics are a human form only...

    Bold part is never going to happen. There's too many variables in tone, wording and name interpretations to ever possibly please everyone. Like, I've got my own ideas about how I would do a rewrite...

    Short chapter this week, but a pretty strong one for what it is. The Roger flashback was unexpected but appreciated, even if it was light on details that could be connected to the tantalizing reveals...

  9. Re: Ace Novel Officially Licensed by Viz for English Physical Release next year

    416 pages is pretty average for a novel, but it'll look pretty hefty lined up next to the regular volumes. And thinking on it, the market might be better than I gave it credit for; One Piece seems to...

    Oh neat! I saw Stephen posting about going through the Vivre Cards on twitter so I was expecting an announcement for them being translated, making this come a little out of left field.

    Usopp's cowardice is useless basically all the time! That's why he had the chance to grow and become a lot more confident throughout the series. It hasn't been removed entirely, as it's a defining...

    You're not wrong that it worked out in those cases. I just think it's a little boring that Sanji keeps falling back asswards into situations where his greatest weakness turns out to be a strength...

    This is fascinating, and I had no idea they'd been doing the manuscript thing for so many recent chapters. Definitely going to be checking this on release dates from now on.

    I think only One Piece could deliver a chapter of pure, actionless exposition and infodumping and make it this exciting to read. This is the kind of thing other fantasy writers only wish they could...
