    So...katakuri is a guy with sharp canines, one could say like a dog...

    This is all probably just coincidence but I wonder if oda might have been doing something here very sly like not his name being directly a reference but a sideways squint and you see it reference

    Its seems like MS just failed upwards

    Not as large quality as usual yet, but the cover for v85 is up on Viz's website.

    Still really annoyed they didn't change the New World tag when cake started. At this point its just going to be the subtitle for the rest of the series, until maybe the final war.

    I liked Skypeia and Water 7 being broken up (even if they ended Skypeia early due to ONE chapter of Foxy being in the last volume) and yes it got a little messy when they went between thriller bark, sabondy, impel down and the war in fairly rapid succession but.... New World should have been the return and then Fishman Island, and then they should have switched to Dresserossa.

    Not this ongoing nonsense. Might as well have pumped in a couple chapters extra into 60 to end it clean on the timeskip and then just started One Piece Z with a fresh #1 if this was going to be their approach.

    I mean, there were at least two, more likely three Foxy chapters in v32, depending on your interpretation of exact saga start and end points. And it was the same deal with the two/three Sabaody chapters at the end of volume 50, which should have been Thriller Bark. They still should definitely have rounded up and not down, but it was a few chapters of stuff to deal with.

    I guess the reasoning would be that they didn't want someone picking up the first volume of a new saga and getting confused cos the actual first chapters of that saga aren't in it. It's not a bad idea theoretically, but in practice it just does not work.

    My hopes of a change up for Wano aren't high, since all of the build up for that arc and Kaido has been part of the New World stories so far, alternating with the building conflict with Big Mom. We're gonna be left with this titanic saga that includes all the build up to and pay off for Luffy's first two conflicts with the Emperors. Not ideal, but it kinda works. If they think they can keep New World going past the end of Wano though, that would be something truly stupid.

    Annnd yeah, I still don't get the breaking up of Sabaody/Impel Down/Marineford when everything else got to be a full saga (or in New World's case, three full sagas and counting). The whole idea could have been handled so much better.

    It was one of those ideas that probably seemed alright back in 2010 when they were churning out a whopping five volumes a month for almost half a year, but the further we get away from that, the more questionable it seems. Personally I would just brand things as "East Blue", "Grand Line", and "New World", but that's probably not going to happen unless there's like a proper omnibus some time in the future like the Dragon Ball and Rurouni Kenshin VizBig editions or (my dream) a Jojonium-esque hardcover release.

    That would have been better than what they're doing - at least it'd be consistent - but it cuts things a little broad for my tastes. Plus it'd mean having one colour of logo for waaay too long.

    In my mind (and in the way I have the volumes organised into sub-folders on my computer) the ideal grouping would be East Blue, volumes 1 - 11. Baroque Works (or Alabasta), volumes 12 - 23. Skypiea, volumes 24 - 32. Cipher Pol (or Water Seven), volumes 33 - 45. Thriller Bark, volumes 46 - 50. Marineford (or Paramount War), volumes 51 - 60. Fishman Island (or New World, if we must have a New World), volumes 61 - 66. Donquixote Empire (or Dressrosa or Pirate Alliance), volumes 67 - 80. And finally Totland (or Tottoland if you insist) ongoing.

    It breaks the series up into more digestible legs of plot that still feel like full stories with beginnings, middles and ends, and does so consistently. It's also a bit more in line with the fan-recognised saga names and start and end points on the wiki, though the wiki is an imperfect beast and it would probably be a poor idea to follow it exactly.

    I won't be holding my breath for completely retitled reprints or any omnibusses that aren't the current three in ones until the series is done though. As incredible as a Jojonium style release would be...

    Aaaaand Amazon finally gives us a better quality front cover for v85, plus the back cover



    The back cover doesn't seem to have the checkerboard pattern from the front on it, it's just plain green. Wonder if that means the checks won't be on the spine either.

    Anyone got a discount code for VIZ subscription? Us Canadians have been getting the shaft since our dollar tanked. I really don't feel like paying 35 bucks for a yearly digital subscription, when I want to buy physical copies too.

    We get it legally, but I mostly use their app, and they quoted me for $34.99 for a yearly subscription, which is different than on their site. I don't know if the 19.99 is for new members or what.

    That $20 dollars is like $25 CDN, so I save like 10 bucks. I'll take it I guess. (Although kinda cheesed, since I don't read any of the other SJ mangas, so I'm paying for stuff I don't use, when I can buy 2 hardcover volumes with that money).

    Just visit viz.com The normal price is $25.99 and is currently reduced to $19.99. Maybe you had another article in your cart or you are telling bullshit - show a screenshot.
