It was an okay episode. The pacing was pretty bad at the start. Sanji's scene was okay in my opinion. Week after week I see people complain about every little thing not being as good as the manga, but let's face it. You guys will never think anything's as good as the manga and you go into every episode looking for something to complain about. But that said, I did feel this episode was mediocre. At least next episode looks to be more entertaining.
There's a reason I avoid thhis site like the plague. People pretty much go into these episode with two things in mind, impossible expectations that would require completely different budgets far exceeding what's probably at hand and an already made up mind that the episode already sucks, but no reason as to why so any will suffice.
–- Update From New Post Merge ---
2 months later people still bitching about same stuff. Why is it that since this year one piece anime thread/episodes have been having less and less views and comments? Is because y'all just annoying, every week y'all blah blah blah same stuff next week blah blah blah damnit…
If you don't like what you see in the episodes then quit watching it and quit with the every week "I think I will drop the one piece anime" next week your back to say the same stuff, no one cares. When this bitching stuff started it was ok but now you guys have made it become very annoying, frustrating, stupid and repetitive. Thanks to y'all people been trying to avoid anime threads.
You guys should freaking get this into your heads, you can't read manga and watch anime and like both, nor matter what the anime will never please you as much as the manga will but on the other hand- The anime only watchers only know about the anime so everything is perfect for them.
Ex: is me- when I used to watch only One piece anime everything was perfect and made sense but when I started reading the manga and watch anime then the anime felt slow not fun anymore. You manga readers are just spoiling anime only watchers, yeah by spoiling I meant with y'all week btching the anime only watchers will be so curious they go and start reading the manga to see what's so different.
Pfft people can't just grow up, like Toei can see or give two F's about y'all btching.
Thank You, and most comments like Marcelle's are why I don't post here or ANY other anime board since there's no good discussion because disagreeing with the popular consensus is frowned upon/dismissed and bitching and moaning is "logically criticizing" something.
