I was tired of only watching the anime, so now I'm current with the manga. I love One Piece too much, and somehow it gets spoiled anyway.
I have to say, I really like the direction it's going. Duval & the scenes with Luffy having an "overlooked mushroom" and the "what's in the bag" questions were priceless. If the new characters like Kid and Law give only a taste of what The New World will hold… I want another bite.
It will be interesting to see how the Stawhats fair on their own. Obviously Zoro, Franky, and Sanji will be fine. Chopper, Brook and Usopp... it depends
I can see it now when they reunite,
Sanji: That was hell. I HAD to land on such difficult island... where did you land Luffy?
Luffy: An all-girl island.
Sanji: Right..........WHAT???!!!!!! mopes
