Thread: Oda's Interviews

  1. #1821

    Default Re: Oda's Interviews

    I have been thinking for couple of years now, maybe since Zou~WCI, i wish that maybe for future arc after Wano will not based on 1 island at a time anymore.
    Maybe its time to focus on multiple event on multiple places with multiple factions/groups.
    To focus more on developing and finally concluding all those lingering plotlines and setup for final arc/saga.
    And some long awaited islands and places fans had been waiting for, they will still get them but not as focus point like what happen for all this time.

    But whatever Odas choose to do, i know i'll be enjoying it. It just I feel tired of reading some fans complaning that they don't get their favorite characters story/actions/fighting etc or they don't care about all those tons of new characters that Oda's introducing, don't care about most if not all new plotlines whatever. Some fans just want their favorites on action and they had been waiting for a very long time.

    No idea where this need for development of the crew comes from, definitely not from any inclination in the manga where the Strawhats are constantly put back for other characters to shine or get focus on.
    "Sanji´s arc" does not change much on that really, though i suppose many see it as sign that this might extent to other Strawhats, but honestly, it´s not a logical conclusion. It is more likely that Oda might have seen signs of Sanji fan backlash (fan mail and such, he is the 3rd most liked character after all) and hence talked about Sanji´s arc to appease them, which at the same time still was a catalyst and sufficient reason to visit the island that was foreshadowed 150 chapters before.
    Nevertheless, with Sanji it kind of made sense to learn how a young boy ended up on the ship and where his love for cooking and All Blue came from.
    For Zoro it would make sense to learn why he was dojo hunting.
    Nami was a baby when she was found, you could add the info where she comes from, would not be essential for her character though.
    Usopp lived on his island and then joined.
    Same for Chopper.
    Robin´s life is clear, you could show all the hideous people who betrayed her, not necessary though.
    You could show Franky´s dad, that might actually happen at one point.
    Brook´s life as a kingdom soldier could be shown before becoming a pirate, once again not really essential for his character, since his connection to Laboon and his pirate crew and 50 years in solitude have shaped his character.
    Jinbe needs a personal flashback.

    And then the dreams, most if not all of them will get accomplished at the end when either getting to Raftel or uniting the world.
    Zoro´s dream is a bit shaky, technically he could do that any time he become strong enough, but he will only get strong enough in the end.
    Nami´s technically will not get accomplished until they sail all the world, but Oda is probably going to pretend sailing the Grand Line completely is good enough.
    Franky is the same, his dream gets accomplished when they reach Raftel.
    Usopp´s can happen at any time, i think most agree it will happen on Elbaf.
    Brook is after reaching Raftel, maybe even by uniting the blues again, which also intertwines with All Blue dream of Sanji.
    Robin´s dream is accomplished on Raftel.
    Jinbe´s dream, assuming it is really all about the fishmen race, gets accomplished by defeating the WG.
    Which pretty much only leaves Chopper in need of personal focus on his dream and the cure for all diseases. Can easily also be accomplished at Raftel, can also happen after everything is over and Luffy is actually sick, nevertheless, not a justification for a completely separate, Chopper heavy arc.

    In principle, I don't mind added development and paneltime for the crewmembers at all. In fact, quite the contrary.

    But the thing about Sanjis second round in the spotlight is that a) none of the questions it answers had been positioned as needed answering (in contrast to Namis mention of Bellemere as she sails off from baratie, or Robins declaration that her dream has too many enemies in Alabasta), b) a lot of the added detail feels weird when applied to Sanjis character in retrospect, and c) Sanji is the exact same character as before, with the exact same dream, the exact same morals, and the exact same personality. The most he got out of it was a severe drop in integrity, courtesy of the Raid Suit debacle.
    Other Straw hats might fare better, especially underserved latecomers like Brook, but its not exactly a stellar precence to set.

    Well in Sanji´s case, you never really learned where the obsession with All Blue comes from, nor what a young boy is doing working an adult profession. I mean of course you can link the latter to the general harsh life of the One Piece world, but in contrast to the rest, with whom you get a clear root of their dream, Sanji´s mentor simply reinforced his already existing dream, but never represented the catalyst for him to develop said dream.

    For every Strawhat, i at least think it is different, can´t quite recall whether Nami´s talent and love for navigation had anything to do with Bellemere.

    But yeah, ultimately, i doubt anyone felt that Sanji´s background was incomplete.

    Default Re: Oda's Interviews

    Sanji's background was not strictly necessary indeed, but that doesn't mean there weren't some interesting questions around his main personality traits, which is not true for most Strawhats, dare I say.

    Even if WCI didn't ultimately change Sanji, it did give some depth to why he follows some of his hardcore principles. For example, to explain why he doesn't hit a woman you could now say: for being rejected by his blood family at such young age, there is a deeper layer of identity for honoring the teachings of the man that accepted him as his adopted son. Fact is that nowadays you have a much clear picture of Sanji's character, actions and decisions, not merely additional background.

    Basically repeating what I said. Before Zou, most didn't think there would be a Sanji arc, but we got 1 anyway. Shows the direction that Oda might be going in with some or possibly all of the characters. The cook over being the warrior as his pops sees it. I see that this might be a similar approach for Zoro in Wano. To cut nothing and duty as the vice captain mixed in with so many other plot points. If it was just Zoro or Luffy, it wouldn't be a discussion really. I can see more with Franky and Brook, just off that. Whether the audience wants to see it or not. It has been open to speculation by this pattern

  7. #1827

    Default Re: Oda's Interviews

    Which is the issue, nobody saw it as necessary, nobody expected it, yet Oda literally addressed it as something people have been complaining about, namely not seeing Sanji for so long as the 3rd favorite character, and Oda pretty much revealed it would be the year of Sanji and he would get additional focus.
    How much of that was planned (i mean the North Blue and Mr Prince stuff can both be meticulous foreshadowing or fortunate details that lead to more) or not is up for discussion, ultimately it does not matter since it served its purpose as being the catalyst for WCI while addressing one of the few things that was left open in any Strawhat backgrounds, i addressed that above.

    In the same time frame, we did not see Chopper, Nami and Brook, apparently nobody cared about that.

    Sunkist had a better backstory before he became a Vinsmoke.

    Default Re: Oda's Interviews

    I never seen complaints for Sanji not getting his backstory fleshed out or even progression and just off that, i'm skeptical enough to question if Oda seen it himself. I can't remember a comment from Oda where he addresses that in particular. Been reading it for almost 10 years now, so maybe someone else has the quote and I missed it.

    Also, what would happen if Sanji didn't get this treatment? I wouldn't even think twice about it. Point is, it's better to go off a pattern in the manga than what the audience want. He's telling the story. I've never read a story that addressed what every fan wanted.

    You're proving my point that Oda is impulsive to a certain extent and can either have something waiting to take on or impulsively decide "this would make things more interesting". With that and the fact that Sanji got backstory and progression, I can't dismiss many of the major things that have been hinted if something, like what Sanji got in WCI arc, happened.

    Just wait until Zoro is revealed to be The One and the only reason for Toki to send them when she did.

    Sanji's storyline would have been a lot better if the Vinsmokes stayed antagonists, him and the others kicked their sorry asses, and send them into obscurity with their dreams broken.

    Seriously, Oda, I don't care, fuck those guys. They ain't ever getting cheered by me.

    With the idea that the Gorosei and Im having the Royals under the lie that everyone is equal and no one sits on the throne, plus Vivi, Rebecca, etc interacting, I speculate that there will be a sector of Royals that are against the WG in the future and can ally themselves with the SH crew. SH crew do have a Rev Army vibe to them. So, Germa, Wano, Elbaf and some other non affiliated WG countries can play a part in that. It can possibly become a trend for certain countries like Alabasta and Drum Kingdom to disconnect from the WG in some capacity. It would compliment how Luffy and the others have been "fixing" the Warlord problem indirectly. He saved their countries and helped them become less reliant and connected to the WG.

    Buuuut, in theory of course. That is how I see Germa's role being played out. Along with there being more to Judge's remarks to Linlin about putting faith in their partnership, in hopes of returning to that land. I think he said 66 days and 300 years. Maybe there's more to his immoral campaign to retain the North Blue and the SH crew can be what BM's organization couldn't

    I can see the remaining arcs being indicative of Oda trying to flesh out his main cast more like he is with the supernova each passing arc.

    Luffy- No need he gets focus every arc.
    Sanji- WCI
    Zoro- Wano, its obvious enough
    Usopp- Elbaf most definitely

    The rest are hard stretches or guesses, but if I had to assume based on my conjecture with future arcs:

    Franky- Vegapunk, considering his history with Vegapunk's birthplace and technology it would fit.

    Robin- Raftel most definitely. Her telling the true history and spilling all the beans about the WG will complete her Ohara arc.

    Jinbe- Fishman Islands destruction, which may just coincide with his dream anyway.

    Chopper- This one im not sure about. Possibly Luffy getting sick like Roger and his composure as a doctor to save him? More an overarching plot

    Nami- tbh i have no idea.

    Brook- Same thing

    That was out of the window the second everyone important in OP was related to luffy. The problem with vinsmokes is not introduce or tease them more before chapter 800 or when they got first revealed. Like give sanji some inferior raid suit since pre ts if you just plan to turn him into power rangers and give up on his unique leg fgihter cook style anyway.
    And vinsmokes are rather important but not on par with luffy's relatives. Like they are some warmongers family we never heard about until recently that want north blue. And they don't influence the big plot of op beyond them wanting to ally with yonkou family. Like judge is some 3rd scientist in the world after CC and vegapunk thing, not really yonkou or hero of marines, son of pirate king, vice pirate king, second man in revolutionaries, or most wanted man or anything like that.

    At this point they just look like excuse to give sanji power up. Like zoro revealed to be from some swordmen family and they give him new sword.

    Nice catches.

    First thing comes to mind is Nami being fleshed out on their way to Raftel navigational-wise as well as geographer-wise on the issue what Grand and Red Line are, how World government is connected to them and the four blues. Probably not like “they shaped them” but I still think there is more to the geomorphology of the OP-world. Maybe she will draw/decipher an ancient map. Maybe it’s not only about a map, but she will have to come up with a new cosmological understanding. I yet don’t see her having an own mini-arc though, more like getting time to shine and show more of her character on their way in general.

    As of Brook I have always wondered how we didn’t meet anyone important he knew in his prime (Laboon aside of course). We know in general next to nothing of the pirates before Rogers era. Seems like we will get this with Kaido/LinLin/Rox flashback though. And maybe Rumba Pirates were just not important enough or are simply too old.

    This is completely random, but I expect the Strawhats to fight the red-hair pirates at some point, and maybe Nami could get a mini-arc at that point? I think Mihawk would get wrapped up in this and be Zoro's opponent, so maybe Nami gets some kind of intelligence duel against Ben Beckman. Perhaps they'll be the strategists for whatever they do or something, since I doubt it'd be just a normal fight

    Devy Back Fight seems like the perfect solution for RHs vs SHs. This way then can have a friendly fight and focus not solely on fighting itself, but utilizing other strenghts.
