Complicating Comprehension While Receiving Clarification
I'm going to tell you now my question was strictly of curiosity and not laced with any intentions to debate or for further discussion. Of course you could not have known this and that's understandable.
It's fair to let you know I edited my comment earlier but of course you wouldn't be privy to this as you were writing out your comment. In the end yes, I'm still interested and where can I find this episode?
I respect and appreciate the clarification. I will deem our previous encounter as a misinterpretation and it's all good. I am planning on doing the next episode on Saturday, it will definitely include a review of this chapter. Check my sig for more info.
Here is what you said:
That means they are two types of One Piece reader. Those who appreciate the whole story (characters, plot…) and those who select things among what the story has to offer.
Well I was hoping your mental faculties would kick in and bring you to realize that I am NOT separating OP readers into just two different groups as that is just plain ol' ridiculous… I admit I could have been more clear regarding that and I guess it was bound to be addressed by someone who wasn't on the same page as me. Nonetheless, that's not what I meant.
I have one question to ask you: Do you think people, that don't like this chapter, don't appreciate the story for all its worth?
I do not think that at all. There is no way I can judge anyones appreciation for the series because I am not a reader of hearts. It's easy to judge someone by what and how they post but it's never a valid judgment. With that being said, I know a few people who were not as connected to the emotions of this chapter as I was, that doesn't make them any less of a reader, fan, follower, or anything for that matter, I respect them as they me.
Are you really going to title all your posts like that?
Yup. I figure everyone would be use to it by now. Oh well, not my problem
Even with this appreciation, this chapter was satisfying but not necessarily exciting (it doesn't offer anything new to readers because of our prior knowledge)
For the longest time I can remember the different speculations of whats going to happen to the SH during the separation series. There were many interesting speculations floating around when we had very little info to go on. This chapter (as well as the previous one) provided the answers that were speculated on months ago. There is definitely new information that was given to us specifically each of the SHs decisions to stay and get stronger and by what means…so we know that Usopp IS going to get stronger and wants to get muscled up (which was an interesting speculation a while back) and so on and so forth...it is interesting to compare all of the crazy yet innovative ideas coming from the readers (some of which didn't like this chapter but are definitely OP fans) months ago about these past 2 chapters. I don't know about you but I enjoyed taking in the different speculations a while back....and now I can see which ones are closest to the truth.
I have no qualms with anything else you posted and in fact I generally agree.
