    Seeing that Luffy ACTUALLY LET TAMA GET PINCHED BY THAT THING actually made me furious with him! WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING LUFFY!?

    EDIT: Also that we are apparently back to frigging, tug o war style punches whose impact has no substance and seem to just be a really strong push.

    They are not even covering one chapter. The pacing was dreadful in this episode.

    Most of the episodes in this arc have covered half a chapter.

    They meant a whole chapter. The pacing is indeed dire.

    Pretty average episode, not much to say really.

    They've been covering less than a chapter for much longer than that, barring the occasional exception, so nothing new really.

    I KNOW IT HAPPENED IN THE MANGA. I hate Luffy and Oda now.

    From continuous starvation, to her only hope dying, to nearly being sold in a red light district to almost being eaten by a crotch lion, Tama has had one shitty little life.

    Well they did a better job incorporating filler scenes in the previous episodes to help with pacing issue. This episode was pretty terrible in that regard

    Yeah the pacing completely destroyed this episode.

    The Law bit was my favorite part however.

    At least Shuichi Ito was on point this week.
    Monkey D. D. Ragon! So beastly he got two D's in his name!

    I just watched the first five minutes. My god what were they thinking. Luffy and Urashima push against each other for like two minutes straight, then they stumble backwards over the edges of the ring making a looped weird sound for another straight two minutes. What the hell is this show coming to. Soon, all we’ll get are two pages of content and ten minutes of reaction shots each episode.

    That Law part was great. Wish it would be canon.

    Hot damn that episode was horrendous. They’ve gone back to their old ways entirely: reaction shots galore, still shots, looped animation, stuff animation. Damn. At least we still have the improved art style, though even that was lacking somewhat this week.

    I have no idea why they keep on giving Suzuki big action episodes to direct. Its clearly not their forte.

    Remember: we might never get consistent animation, but at least the new art style means we don’t get stick figures.

    I think its worth remembering despite our negativity, that there are actually people who overall preferred the animes adaption of this fight to the manga counter-part(outside of the first 5 minutes), and did, overall, find the episode quite enjoyable.
